Today at 10:30 a.m. the NHL will announce the first six starters in the popularity contest, er, I mean, fan ballot-box stuffing, er, rather, voting for the all-star game starters.
I’m assuming we will also find out where John Tortorella ($30,000 lighter) stands in terms of being one of the all-star game coaches. Because he’s in the running.
And tonight, Panthers-Rangers, is the first game affected by the Time Warner Cable-Cablevision-MSG Network fiasco. Will be interesting to see how long this game of big-money chicken continues. But know going in, you guys who have TWC are the pawns for both sides.
