I used to advertise my loyalty and I don't believe there is a single person I loved that I didn't eventually betray.
This is your X-men update:
Boyes re-signed with the Panthers on a two-year, $5.25 million extension. Interesting note, he has 3 more points than new-ex-Blue Chris Stewart in one more game. Didn't see that coming.
"Eric" Johnson has 1 goal and 5 assists in his last 3 games. He has been receiving more attention than usual for his handy work with his stick lately.

Nikita Nikitin is day to day with upper body injury.
Lee Stempniak was traded to the Penguins on Wednesday in exchange for a future third-round draft choice.
Chris Stewart stays in Buffalo. He was not traded to Ottawa as many speculated he would be. He hasn’t done anything in 2 games with Buffalo. He is day to day with an ankle sprain.
Mike Weaver was picked up by Montreal.
Dennis Wideman is day to day with an upper body injury.
Brad Winchester was moved to the Wild organization but had not played a game for the NHL team.
Big Ben Bishop has lost 3 out of 4 since the Olympic break, including one to the Blues.
Jaroslav Halak hasn't started a game since the game against Vancouver for the Blues. He is now with the Capitals.
Viewing guide for the upcoming week:
Johnson and the Avs play the Blues this afternoon in a key "4 point match."
Bishop, Brewer, Crombeen and Co. look to avoid a season sweep against the Bruins and right their ship as they chase a playoff spot.
Halak is expected to make his first start for the Caps tonight against the Coyotes.
Flames contingent can help our cause in their game against the Kings.
The Avs keep up the chase against the Jets.
Stewart and the WIld Wings play the floundering Preds.
Handzus and he Hawks play Johnson and the Avs in a game where we should all be rooting for Giant Meteor of Death.
Perron returns to STL for a game against the Blues. Can he avoid taking more than one stupid penalty?
Perron plays the Wings.
Halak (probably doesn't play) against the Canucks.
Johnson and the Avs play the Ducks in another GMOD game.
