I found this picture of Lou Lamoriello welcoming Adam Larsson to the Devils on Puck Daddy (Yahoo Sports Hockey Blog).

My question to you is, do you see a certain resemblance here?
It's certainly looking to me like getting tossed down a giant shaft in the Death Star didn't quite finish the Emperor off.  Now he's quite content to dominate the world of hockey with a different masked Jedi at his side.

I'll save the I told you so for when he blasts Gary Bettman with Force Lightning.

Thanks to North Stars Play-by-Play man, Dan O'Connor for posting this Kijiji page on Twitter because it's all class.

This guy wants to go to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals really, really bad, and here are the offerings he is prepared to make for a ticket to the game:
 
 

With so much traffic on the website right now (700 hits yesterday, WOW!!) I thought now would be a good time to put the survey back up.

You don't need to answer all the questions.  If you've never heard a broadcast, but have read the blog, I want to know what you think.  The responses I've had have been very valuable and thank you to those that have taken the survey.

Here's the rest of the original post. (I know, kinda lazy.  Also, I'm aware of the lack of audio from the finals and now, the Anavet Cup.  I hope to have time to upload it all this week with the three games back in La Ronge.)

With the season getting down to its late stages, I've put together a 26 question survey on how I can improve the website and the quality of my broadcasts.  It only takes a couple minutes to complete and it really helps me improve if I know what my readers/listeners would like to see change.

So if you've been grumbling about something for the entire season, now is your chance to get it off your chest and I can work on fixing the problem.  

It would be greatly appreciated if you could take the time to fill out the survey.

*If you answer some of the questions with very low ratings, I would ask that you definitely take the time to explain what you don't like.  I can't get better if you don't tell me what you don't like.

Thanks so much for your time!

Late Season Survey

Hey folks,

With the season getting down to its late stages, I've put together a 26 question survey on how I can improve the website and the quality of my broadcasts.  It only takes a couple minutes to complete and it really helps me improve if I know what my readers/listeners would like to see change.

So if you've been grumbling about something for the entire season, now is your chance to get it off your chest and I can work on fixing the problem.  

It would be greatly appreciated if you could take the time to fill out the survey.

Post Script:  At this time (10:31 Monday) I've had four responses to the survey and I am already finding them helpful.  Even with just a couple of comments I am able to ask myself questions about what I'm putting on the site and things of that nature.  Thanks to those who already did the survey!
 
 
If you caught the webcasts on the weekend and read the Bauer Conference Final series preview a couple posts back, you will be aware that I gave a random nickname to Curtis.

Referring to him as Curtis "The Eagle" Skalicky likely isn't nearly as funny as I think it is, but he seems to find it amusing.  If I can get one person to laugh it's all good.  Even if the rest of you are just shaking your heads.  If you caught Saturday's webcast, you will be aware we were kicking around the idea of holding an open forum on the whole nickname subject.

Personally, I think a nickname needs to be earned, not just randomly bestowed.  So really, "The Eagle" probably won't carry much further as it gets old.  However, if someone was to have a nickname selected and voted on by the fans... that could hang on for at least the rest of the post-season.

In keeping with the proposed idea, this is the official DanielFink.Weebly.com "Nickname Curtis Contest".  I have absolutely nothing to give away except for the admiration of your peers for being the one to nickname Curtis.  Maybe I'll buy you a coffee or something?  Is that acceptable compensation?  

Use the comments section below to offer up your suggestions for Curtis' new nickname.  I'll take the options and put it into a poll that people can then vote on and we'll hopefully have a winner by the time Game 5 rolls around!

So get thinkin' and nicknamin'!
