Some good stories in there.

I think the funniest was the guy who was attending the fair and wandered into the Tampa dressing room looking for a washroom.

That was a real good read- especially for those of us who live in the Sun Belt locales and grew up with these franchises trying to make their mark in the NHL.

I remember going to Lightning games way back in the early 90's and hearing people say things like "shoot the dang thang!" It was painfully obvious a large majority of people had no clue about hockey. A far cry from where the game is now... a true salute to those players and organizations for growing the game in these markets the way they have.
