The Ottawa Senators helped out their draft position with a 4-3 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. Coupled with an Avalanche win, the Senators returned to 29th place. Gabriel, here we come!
Also, it maybe just a few days after the March Equinox, or "spring" for you folksy types, but we have a good 5 centimetres of snow here. According to my Ottawa source (Peter), there was no snow in Ottawa today. So today's non-hockey topic of the day is, what is your favourite season? In keeping with my contrarian ways, I don't mind winter, in fact, I just might even like it. I don't enjoy -25C, but I'll take it over a disgusting day at 43C with the humidex!
My favourite season is autumn, when I have just gotten over the filth pool that is summer. So my rankings are 1) Autumn/Fall 2) Spring 3) Winter 4) Summer. My ideal day is about 18 degrees with a nice breeze, and then walking by the waterfront near Lake Ontario. What is your ideal day?
But if you insist on talking hockey, I'll throw you a couple links. Beware, it's a slow news day though.
