...the hockey world will be shocked when a player finally speaks his mind to a reporter. It happens when Marty Brodeur tells the Bergen Record that Miro Satan's slapshot looks like a big, juicy hamburger.
...Sidney Crosby will finally be considered a bust when it he is unable to part the Red Sea.
...Gary Bettman announces his long awaited retirement as NHL commissioner. He says that he plans to step down in another 50 years.
