This week I’m happy to be re-joined for the first time in many months by John of the great FifthFeather.com.
First, we get the lowdown on the Feather’s summer away at cottage and what’s in store for readers this season over at their site. Then, with training camp vastly approaching, John and I try to put a lid on the Blackhawks off season.
