Fuel for the Fowl Queens rivalry

Hey SoCal boys, what do you think of this rumor? From the ever-reliable Toronto Sun:

Rob Blake: After years of high-level, not to mention high-priced, service, Blake is leaning towards making a decision based upon quality of life. He's a free agent and there are those who believe that when Joe Sakic signed at a reasonable price this week, he did so to allow the Colorado Avalanche to keep Blake. But Blake has a fantastic home in Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles and feels that he would like to see more of it. Therefore, an offer from the Kings would be well received. There's another possibility. Anaheim isn't exactly next door to Manhattan Beach, but it's not very far either, and there are those who think Blake could be a waterfowl by next season.
I doubt it will happen, but it'd sure be entertaining to watch Kings fans get extra-extra-extra mad at Mr. Blake for visiting Staples in the new stunning non-Mighty jersey.

I don't think Burke has the money to throw at him and I'm not sure he's be worth the price.

It would be funny to watch Kings fans have apoplectic fits, though.

Speaking of non-mighty, check out the Ducks' site. Goddamn are those ever lame jerseys. I'm all for minimalism with hockey jerseys, but come on, folks, that's the logo you put on your helmet, for Christ's sakes! What happened to that other one Sleek posted last month?

Well, well, well... things appear to have gotten somewhat interesting in my prolonged absence. Great work so far, Cali boys.

I'm still a few days away from return─▒ng to the states (currently in Istanbul, struggling with a foreign keyboard and a hotel-limited internet usage), but promise to sound off loudly on unis, drafts, and trades (once I can digest them).

God I hate this keyboard. There is a separate key for a 'dotted' i and a 'non-dotted' ─▒. That currently is the strongest opinion I've got.

How was game seven? Probably a better question for the DVR...

See ya in a few days.
