My dear wife is having a girls-only party in my living room which means I am free (or, depending on your definition, stuck) for the next hour or two. So it seems like a good time for an open chat thread. I'll be here to discuss playoff prospects, player performances, blogging, or anything else that comes to our collective minds. All of you folks who are up semi-late on a Friday night but aren't out and about join in! I anticipate the crowd will be a little lighter than usual so this is your chance to get more in-depth chatting done should you wish!
