With every blessed day that the Lockout drags on, your ol' pal Wanye is pushed further from home in the vain attempt to forget about the NHL and the beloved Edmonton Oilers. Today his sobering musings come from San Francisco. Also he is speaking in the fourth person, which has to be some sort of Olympic Record.*

Hey look! Fans cheering for hockey. I remember that.
Here are today's KHL highlights. SOme pretty notable games are missing. For example, we didn't do packs for Yakupov's team Neftekhimik, Malkin's team Magnitogorsk, Lupul's team Avtomobilist, etc, etc. There was a technical issue, but we still managed to make highlight packs for five of the games. To make it up to you, we will be doing packs for the important games we missed tomorrow, in edition to tomorrow's Dynamo Moscow vs Dinamo Riga game.

This afternoon saw Forbes release its annual appraisal of NHL franchise valuations and financial performance, and since this edition marks Winnipeg's first real appearance in the listings, it seems a good idea to have a closer look at the numbers.
First off, it's always wise to offer a disclaimer or two when discussing Forbes' handiwork. There are a few caveats that I'll get into as I go, the most important of which is that NHL teams don't offer public examination of their books, so the revenue figures are usually best guesses that the league quickly poo-poos. Still, as an ordinal of sorts to rank teams' financial wherewithal, it has some merit. By that measure, Winnipeg's return to the NHL was a hit, at least at the box office.
