Well hey there my pretties! I`m sorry I`ve been so under the radar posting this off season, but this really will change now that the regular season is about to start. J.J. and Richard are doing a fabulous job with posting lately so I`m sure you barely missed me. Anyways, before I get to some of my pre season thoughts, I have some FABULOUS family news to report! Get ready…

My cousin, James Wright, kick ass center for the Vancouver Giants and all round wonderful human being signed an entry level contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning today! He was THE surprise of the pre season according to a bunch of the media down in Tampa. I think this deserves an OWWWWW OWWWWW OWWWWW! You have no idea how excited I am for him. I may have squealed and bounced up and down in my living room and teared up a little when I read the official press release from the Lightning. It`s a good thing I look cute in all shades of blue because I am buying a Wright jersey as soon as he settles on his full time number.

Both my fantasy hockey drafts were today and they turned out pretty damn well. Especially Luke Schenn`s Hair.

I`m really pleased I got Getzlaf and Weber.

As for the Canucks pre season, their record is pretty outstanding, but you don`t want to get too excited because it`s just pre season. Shirokov looks like he could be really fun to watch. The Sedins somehow look faster and Hank is shooting more. Tanner Glass has really impressed me and is fun to watch. I don’t know who he would replace on the fourth line but I would love to see him stick around. I’m still digging my choice of Shane baybee O’Brien for my new Canucks boyfren. He scored a GORGEOUS goal against the Ducks on Thursday. I like to think it was just for me. Now it’s almost time to organize your opening night plans. WOOOOOOOOOO!
