Friends, let me give you some advice: never record a podcast on a Monday. In this episode, we go into mourning, talk Texas Stars and AHL realignment, gush about John Klingbae, and answer some thought provoking reader questions. Also Merrin is grouchy, and I have low blood sugar.

Clarification: Kevin Hayes was drafted by the Blackhawks and joined them for prospect camps, however he was never offered a contract and instead signed with the Rangers this summer. His brother Jimmy Hayes played for Rockford and then was traded to the Panthers. Coincidentally, they were playing each other last night while we were recording the podcast.
