Donate to Haiti! See a hockey game! For only 10 bucks....what? So the Lightning will be the real leaders in the donations race in the NHL right? The management can barely afford their own team, oh wait they can't?
Enemy blog: There really are so many. Check out my favorites:

- Down Goes Brown for the funniest blog written
With all the changes in the Lightning these days, it seems like the circus is back to town. The Lightning just picked up center Nate Thompson off of waivers from the NY Islanders. Cristodero says there is a corresponding move coming, so does that mean Wright is going down?
Hedman will be benched tonight because of his poor play, with Hale and Walker drawing in to the lineup. Then you ask yourself, what the hell? 1 guy scratched, 2 D in, math just doesn't add up. That's because Foster will be playing as a forward. Like I said, it seems like the circus is back to town. Oh and that Paul Ranger coming back soon thing, seems like a myth.
The Lightning have split the last two meeting with the Leafs, the next time we play them will be on March 11th. After embarrassing massacres, the Lightning really need to win a game.
I'm having a hockey high today, two games on deck (Lightning/Leafs, Canucks/Stars) that I can actually see on my TV in my living room....last year it seemed the Lightning were always invading TSN...now it's been a rare occurrence. As always, I'm excited for the quiz and James Duthie.
- Hedman is benched
- Brandon Bochenski is benched
- Niitymaki to start in net, Mike Smith still out
- Kurtis Foster will play as a forward
- David Hale and Matt Walker will be on D
