Thursday's Dump & Chase: Happy Independence Day!

As you may have heard, our old friend Sergei Kostitsyn was put on waivers, clearing the way for him to return to the KHL. While everyone will miss the Sergei from two years ago, nobody will miss the most recent version. It's a sad story, and goodbyes are always difficult. But it's probably the best thing for all parties involved. I, for one, wish him the best, and strongly urge him to sign up for a frequent flyer program. He'll probably earn like 40 free trips to Hawaii by the end of the season. ( While our Founding Fathers might not have considered "Best Blog" voting when they crafted the Declaration of Independence, they certainly should have. Head on over to the Toast of Music City Readers Choice Awards and vote for's about your basic freedoms. Probably.)
