Canadian blogger "mahigan" getting a little ahead of himself. Heh.

over here and like many of us, says adios to the NHL season, good riddance and don't let the screen door whap you in the butt on the way out.

But wait, what's that? The sound of a clawed hand, emerging from the freshly-turned earth? Nooooooo ...:

The NHL season may be brought back to life after all. Believe it or not, labour talks will resume Saturday in New York.

"Late Thursday night the NHL requested a meeting with NHLPA representatives in New York," the NHL Players' Association said in a statement Friday night. "Today the NHLPA accepted the invitation and a meeting has been scheduled for Saturday."

No! Die, dammit, die! Why won't you just stay dead?!

Otherwise, it's just status quo all over again.

Me, I was quite looking forward to the Trail Smoke Eaters taking on the Flin Flon Bombers for the liberated Coupe de Stanley.

Trail Smoke Eaters & Flin Flon Bombers? Geez gazeteer you're as old as I am. I'm not sorry to see the end of the NHL for the year but then I'm also not sorry I don't have to run from hungry dinosaurs anymore. And that hand emerging from the freshly turned earth disapeared faster than a vampire in the noon day sun. In a nice piece of irony, greed will usually trump self interest.
