I hope everyone had a safe Halloween over the weekend and were lucky enough to have kids wake you up at 5:30 in the morning because they don't care about the time change. the best part of that was i was awake to get to Wal-Mart when it opened and cleared them out of half price peanut butter cups. Our prospects were giving us lots of treats this weekend, the Knights killed it, lots of points there. Bracco was outstanding in his OHL debut games, and those kids across the pond are no slouches either (except for the injured one).

There's your prospects. No, Allsvenskan isn't the Swedish AHL because it's not a development league, it's tier 2 and relegation and promotion, but it bugs some Swedish readers to call it that.
