Wow, you got it over 1,000

Over 1,000 comments on a post? Shouldn’t there be some kind of pizza party for that? Kind of cool to see. Thanks to everyone who sent nice notes about the vacation. It was very energizing and actually made me excited to get back and get ready for the start of the season. I’ll be in and out over the next few days as well, but I’ll be on top of any new developments in the ongoing stories, such as Drew Doughty’s contact or the Edmonton trade dispute. Thanks also to everyone for your feedback on the commenting question. I haven’t even begun to sort through all the reaction, but it’s appreciated, and be sure that there will be much due diligence done before any decisions are made.

For now, and for those who haven’t already seen this stuff, here’s a story from a few days back about Mike Richards joining the Kings, and a video of his introduction with the media.
