Oh heavenly hockey deity, and fellow knitalongers, I realize I have been smug and have violated the 12th Commandment of Hockey -- Thou shalt not be too confident early in the season. I know that I have been wrong many many times before, and that pride goeth before the cross-check. I know it is inevitable that my boys will get tired, fail to block the puck, and that Sabretooth will be sad.
So forgive my eagerness, but the desire to covet the Cup is strong and I am weak.
your humble servant,
