Lots of buzz around the web about the return of 2010 playoff hero, Jaroslav Halak.
As you certainly remember, the Slovak netminder helped steer the Canadiens to the conference finals with his superb play before eventually bowing out to the Flyers.
He finished that post-season with a .921 save percentage.
But, according to Halak, tonight's contest against his former team is "just another game".
Of course it is, Jaro.
That's like saying running into your ex is "just running into another person".
It's not true, it never will be true and everyone knows it.

Louis' Note: Fehr is trying to dissociate the realignment block from upcoming CBA talks. He must think people are stupid. Of course they are related.
