Quick Hits: AHL Schedule Released

USA TODAY Sports

I just thought that I would get this out of the way right now rather than wait until later. Regarding Datsyuk's comments, I have a few things to say. First of all, it's his opinion and only his, I don't care at all what he thinks. Second, he grew up in Soviet Russia, I mean what do you expect? Finally, it's not like he's reading your comments anyways (если вы находитесь, напишите мне).

And as for myself, I will try to put this as vague as Pavel put it. Everyone should be entitled to the freedom of life *cough* Syria *cough* and as a result should be allowed to do what they wish.

But enough of all that political stuff, here's some Quick Hits:
