It was another quiet day in the NHL. I think we can officially start saying "we have reached the dog-days of summer". I have only a couple of links for you today and most of them are not about the Sabres, in fact, some are not even about hockey.

I can relate entirely with this post, although I could never convey my thoughts as well as Ryan did.
