With only two games today and neither the U.S. or Canada playing, will the thread crack 10 comments?

Since I'm working from home today and I can't find anything else to watch; I'll watch them but I doubt I'll say much unless there's something worth discussing.

/Maybe we should have a challenge in here: have more comments than fans in the stands

If yesterday is an accurate predictor for today, we may well be a quarter of the way to that goal.
_/I'm without NHL Network until I get home on Sunday, so I can't check the wide shots for a current estimate.

Even in the darkness, from the TSN desk shot; I can see 20-30 people in the stands

If we hit 20 comments, is it a micro-gredunza?

One note I'll make that may have to also do with the lack of attendance: notice how there's no sponsors on the ad boards other than Tissot? Apparently, that's all to do with Hockey Canada's penchant for covering up sexual assault. All the sponsors pulled out in protest.

/Tissot is an IIHF sponsor, but the rest of the sponsors for these things are organized by the hosts

They're showing SVK-CAN highlights from last night. I just noticed that the SVK goalie's name is "Bold." I don't know if that's a great name for a goalie, because that's just inviting the Steve Dangle "If you're a goaltender..." line

Happy to comment on this thread tonight!   One of the running jokes in my life is to overly document hockey in my small circle of friends.  It bores them to death, but some at least tolerate Wisconsin Badger anecdotes.  I really ramp it up during the World Juniors with "Household names of tomorrow today!" types of things.  I feel equipped with superpowers tonight as I go up against the first Packer preseason game and a huge Brewer series opener in St Louis.

Good to see you all and thanks for the warm up!

Slovakian defenseman gets a little too comfortable with the name on the back of the sweater and heads to the box for two.

So the IIHF still brings the Zamboni out for the shootout. So they still like to waste time.
