Labor Day Open Thread
It's your holiday, only you can choose what you do with it.
Whether you are decorating for a party you're having later today or you are cleaning up a party you had over the weekend, today is your Labor Day.
Stop by, read something, chat a bit, reflect on life, or don't do any of those things. It's days like this that make us who we are. So, whatever you do, be you.

Canada opts for smarts over speed with World Cup roster - Article - TSN
Given the semi-competitive nature of this preseason tournament, I'm not sure speed will really be much of a factor anyway. Like how it wasn't a factor at the All-Star Game or the Skills Competition.

Counting Crows + my favorite non-Preds defenseman = guilty pleasure

The Interview & How Things Almost Ended Up All Wrong | jenlc13
You need to read this. @RegressedPDO (aka Jen) is a phenomenal hockey statistician and mandatory Twitter follow. She was brave enough to share a horrific experience she had when she was younger trying to interview for a job out of college. The importance of this issue cannot be understated, as there are undoubtedly more stories like hers out there.

Though I wish it would do more, hockey continues to lead the way among the four major sports when it comes to supporting "out" athletes. More of this, please.
