  1. Strange reports out of Dallas talk about the mysterious disapearance of Sean Avery.
    ‘He just vanished into thin air, right in front of my eyes!’ says an undisclosed source. Time of the incident appears to coincide with Canucks-Oilers game puck drop.
    ‘The world is now a better place’ states Gary Bettman in a press release.

  2. Presto–it’s all about CHANGE. I wish all this were true………….what IS true tho’ is how long-winded the Habs fans really are. Good luck in Washington and in Bruinsville—you’re on a roll……just watch out for Avery re-appearing in the stands(right behind the penalty box)
