Is it because my team is out of it that I'm so bored? With no anticipation to work up, the six days between games seems especially long. And unless Colorado pulls off the big comeback, I've probably seen my last CHL action of the year. Fortunately, I'm spending the next two weeks back East, which means the ECHL, the Frozen Four and hopefully the Flyers.

Oh, and speaking of Colorado comebacks, it's almost downright Huberesque (sorry Jamie) not to check up on Chris Stewart's faulty (or deliberately misleading) memory. The Channel Cats never trailed the 1999 championship series more than 1-0, and only trailed the semis 2-1.

I'm actually surprised that 12 of 19 teams leading 2-0 have closed the deal in three. Gut check time tonight.

Prediction: I am more likely to score 30 goals for the Austin Ice Bats than the CHL is to become unionized.

Come to think of it, I'll just be happy when someone scores 30 goals for the Bats.

A little home province press for Brett Seguin and Chris Legg, though you'd think they also would have mentioned Seguin's 1000th point, and that he's one of the top 50 minor league scorers of all-time.

News from Lubbock. Don't know what's going to happen to Tomlinson, but this could still be the most stable year for coaches ever. It's theoretically possible that all nine non-playoff teams will return incumbents (though I'm not holding my breath on Corpus Christi).

You know you're a bush league when you screw up guaranteed fight night. "Notorious desperados" Andrew Katzberg and Ryan Anderson?

Finally, let's take a moment to bid farewell to Hockey by George, and thank Mr. Schneider for his passion and dedication to the sport.
