It's quiet

Just to give some perspective on how the sports world differs in the south to traditional hockey markets, there is rampant talk of league wide stuff probably going on in every city in Canada. Boston's probably fuming over the Thornton trade and other cities above the Mason Dixon line will address pertinent issues over and over again, along with getting interviews with players and coaches and reporting on the home team.

Here? While the Lightning have an extended rest (they resume play tomorrow versus the Blues), the stories are thus: Sticks, Reflections and "True Original"video coaching.

So yeah, it's not quite the same.
