We’re just about at the quarter mark of the NHL season and things are unwinding quickly.

From Brent Burns’ slow start to the dominance of Johnny Gaudreau, it’s been another wild fantasy hockey season thus far. Again – it’s important to be patient during the good times and especially when your team is floundering. You’ll be fine. I hope. Maybe not.

No games on American Thanksgiving means lots of turkey left over for the holiday weekend. Aside from Thursday, it’ll be a hectic week of NHL action.
