Looks like Sparks gets the start on Saturday.

Bibeau has been recalled and Reimer is listed as day-to-day.

A couple of great tweets from Sparks:



He's a really likeable guy.

Dont get too attached to him. There's a pile of ufa's that can easily replace what he gives the leafs....

JKR, half the fun of this game is getting attached to players…and somehow in a childlike manner we are ready to give them up…. I remember when I would have been pissed if Kaberle was traded and then he had to go.
I wanted Kessel to come and was glad to see him go…strange how our affections and realizations change.

I love the message of the first one but I'm sure Mr. Fish Bulb understands the practical limitations there.

I just sent 200 letters to him asking for signatures....and one hot dog.

I don't think you understand the points being made about Komarov.

Sparks, who played for two years in Orlando, dropped a little truth today.

This guy gets it.
Huge respect for Sparks not being afraid to speak out.


Somebody finally said something sensible on this subject.  Bravo, Sparks.

Don't worry, the NRA still rules here.  This too shall soon be forgottenized by them and their lackeys in Congress.  After the requisite useless "thoughts and prayers," of course.

EDIT: Just saw this ... in case you think I'm exaggerating:

Yeah, the NRA lobby can't lose here, though I completely agree with Fishbulb.

I don't care what you guys say, I refuse to accept that the Gun lobby has more political influence in the United States than Garret Sparks.
