“Have a merry Christmas, a happy Hanukah, a kwazy Kwanza, a tip-top Tet, and a solemn and respectful Ramadan.” – Krusty the Clown.

And if you’re Wiccan, enjoy the Solstice. If you follow a religion which doesn’t celebrate Christmas, or an Agnostic/Atheist like me, enjoy the long weekend!


  1. And a happy festivus for the rest of us! Lol! Seriously, merry Christmas everybody. I for one will be in a turkey induced coma for a couple of days, so enjoy your weekend boys!

  2. And enjoy the time off Lyle, thanks for another solid year of news and rumors!

  3. Thanks! Looking forward to a terrific New Year.

  4. All the best Lyle, I hope you enjoy a very safe and festive holiday break! Naturally upon your return we’ll expect you to work all that much harder to make up for lost time… :-)

  5. Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all. Looking forward to continuing the banter in 2012.

    Thanks for all the hard work and great insight on this site Lyle. Reading the morning hockey pages just wouldn’t be the same without you.

  6. All the best in 2012, Spec!

  7. All the best to Spec and the other hockey nuts on here.
    I just wrote my letter to Santa and asked for at least one Ducks win in 2012.

  8. NikK, set your sights lower – then Santa won’t disappoint you!

  9. Merry Christmas and Happy new year to all!

    Just remember though, you are what you eat (LOL)!

  10. Happy Holidays to all and hope santa is good to you.
    Please santa be good the the Leafs and give Wilson a pink slip instead of an extension.

  11. Merry x-mas all.
    Love coming here talking trades.

  12. I’m here everyday so I’d be remiss to not give my thanks for your hard work over the last year. So, thanks Lyle- you make my mornings! Have a happy and safe holiday break.

  13. Hey yo!!!!!
    Merry christmas to all and a safe holiday weekend.
