First of all, I have to ask - does anybody else feel like they know too much about Nick Lidstrom's testicles? Because I feel like I've thought more about Nick Lidstrom's testicles this week than I've thought about meal planning and the fall of the Michigan economy combined. I mean, I'm glad they're ok and all, but... damn. To think, all this time I was worried it was his knee again.
I know there are blogs that spend the summer making regular posts about... like, the New York Islanders' off-season moves, or whatever happens to hockey when the hockey goes away, but this probably isn't going to be one of those blogs.
Don't get me wrong, we won't disappear. There's the NHL Awards, the draft... 5,000 news articles about Sidney Crosby and classless Wings fans that sound like they were written by 13 year old girls... so there'll be things to say about that, for sure. But we'll probably be pretty scarce until the 09-10 season starts up for reals. Unless something randomly interesting happens in August, like last year when Tomas Holmstrom accidently took the Stanley Cup into a Swedish gay bar.
We'll for sure be posting something if Petr Sykora goes to a gay bar.
