AHL adding 31st team so every NHL franchise has its own affiliate [SB Nation]

The Colorado Avalanche are elevating the ECHL's Colorado Eagles to the AHL to become their new affiliate with their current AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage, becoming the Blues's affiliate. The Blues don't currently have an affiliate because the Chicago Wolves signed on with the Las Vegas Knights.

So, there's going to be some shuffling. Good news is the Marlies will still be the Leafs's affiliate.  :)

Game Notes

The Hurricanes have won four of the last five season series against the Maple Leafs, dating back to the 2011-12 season. … Aho's 20 goals ties Shane Willis for second all-time among Hurricanes rookie goal scorers.

So sad; she was only 60 years old.

Flyers' Voracek will donate $1000 to battle Multiple Sclerosis for every point this season.

A worthy cause. Apparently his sister has been diagnosed with the disease. My twin brother also has MS.

Has anyone upgraded yet? Any thoughts?

I have a Surface Pro 3 and upgraded it last night. I've only noticed one small glitch: when I open an app, my volume button stops functioning. I was going to wait until the first service pack came out, but I was interested. I'll hold off upgrading my two office computers for the time being while I play around with it (have to confirm full compatibility for my modeling software first).

I never had a problem with the start screen design, but I do have to say having one desktop has made me pay more attention to the apps I've downloaded. Normally I'd go straight into desktop mode so I'd forget about some of the cooler apps I had downloaded.

I haven't tried out Microsoft Edge yet, still using Google Chrome. Edge sounds like it's got potential, but is in its infancy. I don't Bing, so I'll probably give it a try.

I'm hoping the widespread adoption of Windows 10 will provide incentive for app developers to make Windows versions of their apps, which to me is one of the biggest problems.

Windows 8.1 was great for tablets and touch screens, but pretty well useless for desktops. I essentially just used it as Windows 7.

Looks like he's attempting a competitive golf career. He's here in Thunder Bay attending the Staal Foundation Open event.

OMG, this is freakin' golden:


Well, in terms of producing NHL talent on a per capita basis, it's my hometown of Thunder Bay!

Here's a neat little blog on the subject with an interactive map:

So, I'm thinking of getting into comics. Not seriously or anything, but I'm starting to appreciate the art and would like to start somewhere. I know it's almost an impossible question to answer, but............where do I start?

I've heard about the DC new 52, so that might make it easier for me. If I do start collecting, I'd probably like to stick to one title/story, or some smaller ones (like 10 issue storys or something). The major DC and Marvel worlds are very confusing to me and seem overwhelming.

I kind of like gritty or sexy stuff, but a good story is important. Would a smaller title from Dark House or similar be a good start? Matters not an ounce to me whether something is a household name or popular or not. I'm just looking for something good.
