As you may — or may not — have noticed, I have been absent around these parts for the last few days.
In fact, I tagged along with a friend for a jaunt to New Orleans. My mind, spirit and tastebuds thank me. My arteries, not so much.
In any event, I also feel like I have missed a few things in the hockey world, both with the Canadiens and at large.
So, tell me, what did I miss?
