I am at a wall. I have no ideas for this gamethread.

Seriously, all the stories are either ancient, passé, and/or no longer relevant. We're seeing Michael Grabner again? No we're not, he's suspended. Can we make fun of permanent IR resident Rick DiPietro? No, he's gone, now they have Evgeni Nabokov. We get to see John Tavares in action? I haven't seen the hype in him since he got drafted by this team. A 1982 Cup rematch? My parents weren't even married at that point! An "ugly fisherman" jersey? That fisherman actually looks pretty badass.

So, here's an idea: let's get something new to talk about. Torts tearing down the stanchion between the benches would do the trick, even, whatever it takes.

Coconuts go!
