I approve of Jester rocking the development patch of Benjamin Sisko's Pimp Hand as his avatar.

Unless you're Ben Sisko.

1. http://video.lightning.nhl.com/video...sole?id=263852

Dan Rosen (seemingly in direct response to yours truly) tells us why, even with megastars Marty St. Louis and Steven Stamkos, the Lightning making the playoffs would be a surprise: an uncertain tandem of G playing behind a certain slow and mistake-prone D. Yippee yi-yo ki-yay.

2. On a lighter note, the summer classic is this weekend. If anyone hasn't checked out Major League Lacrosse yet, this is definitely the weekend to do it if you'd like to see the official national summer sport of Canada, North America's oldest sport, and the fastest-growing sport in the US being played at its highest level--ever. Or at least in the last thousand years. A bit like soccer (but with scoring and without the theatrics), the sick stick skills and power plays of hockey, the ball movement and shot clock of basketball and the explosive hitting of football. Face-offs are a trip. Early in the 20th century it was banned by officials in certain locales because of the excessive violence. Bunch of wusses.

Who cares who wins, just check out the incredible athleticism, and the machine-like precision of undefeated Denver. Why? Why not--there's no hockey on, unless you can take watching old reruns on NHLN.

Saturday 8/24 1:00 PM EST Semifinal 4 Charlotte vs. 1 Denver (only team in MLL history with perfect 14-0 season) on ESPN2
Saturday 8/24 4:00 PM EST Semifinal 3 Hamilton vs. 2 Chesapeake on CBS Sports
Sunday 8/25 3:00 PM EST Championship Game ESPN2

Side note...Tampa is frequently mentioned in expansion talks Great stuff for those who find baseball makes summer go by EVEN SLOWER

EDIT to add: PLUS!! All the high-sticking, hooking and slashing you ever wanted to see are perfectly LEGAL! All day long from opening face-off to final whistle, they get to do stuff with the stick that in hockey would be five and a game plus a guaranteed suspension for excessive wind-up prior to impact. Basically impossible to get a call for any one-handed strike, you can flail guys as much as you want, just not below the waist. It is clinically insane. They HAVE a slashing penalty...one minute, and you basically have to lop off a body part to get it

I disagree that this defensive corps is slow/lacks athleticism. Hedman, Carle, Brewer, and Gudas are all above average skaters for their respective sizes. The only "slow" guys are Salo and Aulie. Barberio, presuming he gets the #7 job, is probably about average in the speed department. It isn't their skating that's the problem. It's their positioning and decision-making that sucked last year and their reticence to protect their own crease physically.

I also think that while, yes, the goaltenders are unproven, this is the best goaltending situation the Lightning have gone into a season with since they had Khabi/Grahame as their tandem. Two big, athletic guys who are still 1-2 years away from their primes. It's much better than juggling has beens and never will bes.

It would only be a mild surprise, quite frankly, because the conference seems wide open after the first 3-4 spots.
