The Blades take on the Wheeling Nailers  who currently sit in last place thanks to their 3-5-2 record over the last ten games. While the Blades sit in an OK position conference-wise, they could use every point possible to stay competitive in the ridiculously competitive South division.

– Not a bad jersey find on eBay.

– It wasn’t as hard as you think to pick the tweet of the week. The Wheeling jokes have been funny, but let’s be honest, that’s the lowest hanging fruit possible. Instead, I chose to go with Dan Milan reminding us of what we all wanted more than anything when we were kids.

twotw2-4– And since I’m not a horrible person, I’ll provide you with a link to buy those amazingly fantastic straws.

– I adore this hockey shirt. I recommend checking our their other shirts as well. they’re all pretty awesome.

– Have I shared these directions to make your own tabletop ice rink before? Because it’s just fantastic.

– Someone loan me the money for this awesome coffee table (fun fact: coffee tables and cocktail tables are the same thing. Lear something new everyday, eh?)

– This big kitty reminds me of the time I woke up to a bobcat hanging out on my back porch. Living in the wilderness isn’t always awesome y’all.

After that little let-down in Greenville, I’m feeling a little blah about the Blades at the moment. It’s not quite Blades January losing streak blah, but it’s getting close.

– You know what’s not helping? The freaking Solar Bears signing another NHLer. Fun fact: an NHL grinder is an ECHL top liner.

– I checked Elite prospects to compare (just for fun), and decided to share the depression inducing numbers with you:

If I have to cry, you all have to cry with me

– In case you were wondering, those two games belong to Brayden Irwin. Congrats Slim.

– I think we all need some cake now.

This shirt feels very appropriate now. It really is all Gary’s fault.

This isn’t hockey related at all, but I figured if cake and mocking t-shirts didn’t cheer you up, bubble wrap might just be the answer.

– The tweet of the week was a hard choice. So, I went with a hat-trick of awesome:

– A person I can only assume is a giant idiot jerk looking to profit off of a jersey auctioned off for charity has put Mike Brennan’s Military Night jersey up on eBay. My list says it went for $500. Pay anything more than that guys, and you’re allowing someone to make a profit and get the tax write off.

We really are almost there. Training camp opens up tonight and we only have to wait two more weeks for opening night. Does it get any better?As always, here’s your weekly dose of links to get you through the day.

– The News-Press is celebrating the Everblades 15th season by posting the top 15 Blades moments. It’s obvious which one is number 1, but I can’t wait to see the rest.

– The ECHL has been posting stories about the league’s coaches all week. Today’s was our very own Greg Poss.

– Yadda yadda yaddda, cool cake!

– I’m always amazed at the creativity on Etsy, but this? It takes the cake.

– Why are Christmas jerseys always terrible? This Checkers Christmas jersey is certainly no  exception.

The end really is in sight. The Blades made their last roster announcements. Now, we wait for the AHL assignments, training camp, and opening night.- The Blades also announced their new radio home this week. I guess winning a league championships means you get to move from AM to FM. I, for one, am happy that I wont have to listen through static or have games preempted by high school football.

– I know every week I claim to have found the most awesome hockey cake ever, but this one really is.

– There are some pretty interesting jerseys up on eBay right now. If you have the cash, may I suggest this game-worn Rob Zepp? I’m assuming it’s from his last season with the Blades in 04-05, because that was the only year out of his four with the Blades that they wore that style (fun fact: that’s the first redesign of the Blades jerseys, the next redesign led to that horrid crossed tails logo).

– Bolt Prospects have been reviewing the minor pro roster in Syracuse, and by extension here in Estero.Best of all, they made some predictions about where everyone is going to land. Here are the links for goaltenders, defensemen, and wingers.

– This is quite possibly the coolest thing ever.

– And, the moment you’ve all been waiting for… kitty time!
