The Breakout Bible will be available today... should be posted to the site very shortly.

IIHF and KHL had a meeting and from that the KHL has dropped their disputes over the transfers of a few players, including Nikita Filatov and Viktor Tikhonov... so feel free to draft them if you were planning on it.  The KHL also agreed to send the Alexander Radulov case to an independent third party for a final resolution.... wake us up when this is all over... still don't see Rads coming back.

Anaheim Ducks GM Brian Burke denied a recent report claiming he's interested in Brendan Shanahan.  Burke's got a few other things on his mind first... we managed to hack into his blackberry and took a peek at his to do list:

  1. Trade Schneider
  2. Sign Selanne
  3. Find ways to badmouth Kevin Lowe in the press
  4. Deny any interest in becoming Toronto's GM
  5. Pack for move to Toronto
  6. Sign 39 year old forwards like John Leclair Pierre Turgeon Brendan Shanahan

Distraction of the Day

What's distracting us today... Disturbing story out of Dallas... 

A robber rolled into a Dallas convenience store came armed with a bat and a knife. He left with a lot of condoms and an energy drink.

Dallas police Cpl. Kevin Janse said Friday that a man in a wheelchair entered a Dallas 7-Eleven Wednesday afternoon, rolled straight toward the cash register and beat it with a baseball bat until it opened. But he didn't grab any cash. Instead, police say he stole 10 boxes of condoms and an energy drink before making his getaway Wednesday afternoon.

Janse says the suspect may have been homeless and was likely intoxicated at the time of the robbery.

There's no mention in the story of the cashier, did he put up any resistance?  We're betting he was probably too busy waiting for Ashton Kutcher to arrive to tell him he's being taped for an upcoming episode of Punk'd.

Here's what really bothers us about this... if this guy swings a bat like Babe Ruth, pulls off armed robberies, alludes the police and is, apparently, a sex addict... is this guy really handicapped???... I smell insurance fraud.
