Hello gossip friends. Apologies for the lengthy absence – sometimes real life gets in the way of hockey entertainment, but what can ya do? Alas, we have returned, and just in time for teams all over the place to start clinching playoff spots, while Leafs fans watch in envy. There’s other stuff to discuss, too. Let’s do it.
