Every year, without fail, since I have been playing pro hockey, at least one teammate had been traded at the NHL deadline. This year was no exception.

Back to back games against any team always are interesting. The game on Sunday against Iowa was a perfect example of how one game's intensity carries over into the next. Right from the drop of the puck in Sunday my defensive partner Boris Valabik was involved in a fight with Iowa's BJ Crombeen, a rematch from Friday night.
Thursday was a travel day. Practice in the morning with a bus ride to Iowa afterward. The day after a loss is
always tough, especially since the night before we lost in overtime.
Back at the practice rink after a day off Sunday. A lot of the guys on the team were pretty sore from the
games last week, especially a rough 4-1 win against Rockford on Saturday night.
