Dear Hockey Gods,
First of all, happy free agency day. I know you find this just as exciting as media and fans do.
Here is what I am hoping for this day.
– I hope that the Predators can hold on to Ryan Suter. I’d like to know that all of the public posturing was at least truthful just a tiny little bit.
– I hope that the Predators can add some smart under-the-radar pieces for themselves and for Milwaukee…..although it does seem to look like our roster is mostly complete.
– I hope that the biggest free agent that the Penguins sign will be Dean Arsene. I hope Zach Parise takes less money to play anywhere other than Pittsburgh.
– I hope Alex Semin signs some place where the local media is a lot more brutal towards players who under-achieve.
– I hope that somebody becomes the new Cristobal Huet. That was hilarious.
– And probably above all else…I hope that there will be nothing that happens today that will make it tougher to get a new CBA ratified this summer.
