Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving

Canadians: Happy Thanksgiving everyone. And Happy Eve of the Federal Election Day — make sure you go out and vote.

Americans: Happy Columbus Day? Seriously guys? Do you always have to have a holiday on the same day as us? You have a Thanksgiving... it's in November. It's not our fault it's in November. Stop being all up in our grill. Geez.

Anything you can do I can do better.

The Toronto Maples can be worse than the Blues. No you can't. Yes I can!
Like i've said before, it's almost not fair to pick on the Leafs. But in today's game against the lowly St. Louis Blues, the Leafs blew a 3-0 lead to lose 5-4 in a shootout.
Speaking of bad.

The Los Angeles Kings' day just got better. They lost their young (but probably one of their better) defensemen from an injury against San Jose last night. Jack Johnson will be out 2-3 months with a shoulder injury.

Sad News.

Alexei Cherapanov
,the Russian player touted to go near the top in the 2007 draft but ended up in the 17th spot with the Rangers, died today.

Cherapanov, 19, played for the Kontinental Hockey League's Avangard Omsk. He and collapsed on the bench during a game in Moscow and later died.

“We are extremely saddened by the tragic passing of Alexei,” Glen Sather, the Rangers president and general manager, said in a statement. “On behalf of the New York Rangers organization, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family.

The cause of death has not be released but speculation is that he had a heart attack.
