REDlines. Masked Men Week. July 21st


Today’s music choice on New Releases Thursday is Junk of the Heart (Happy) by The Kooks.  It’s catchy!

Pretty quiet around these parts.  It’s this time of year when the search for news and the attempt to put content together  takes more time than the actual writing of the article.  Maybe you’re on summer vacation, maybe your focused on baseball, or maybe like us, you still crave news about hockey.  Or maybe your still basking in the glory of all the new players we’ve acquired.  Just know, we’re trying.  Feel free to stop by and drop us a comment in the comment section.  Maybe you’ll spark a story.  Today, and this week for that matter the news seems to be about the goalies as the Florida Panthers inked young goaltenders Marc Cheverie and Tyler Plante.  Both signed two way deals this week,  and at some point in the future could find themselves in a Panther sweater in.  Another goalkeeper decided to call it quits yesterday making it two for the week.  Other than that, let’s get to the links after the jump:
