If You Leave Me Now...

...you'll take away the biggest part of me










Ooh, no, baby please don't go









If you leave me now, you'll take away the very heart of me











Ooh, no, baby please don't go

A love like ours is love that's hard to find
How could we let it slip away?
We've come too far to leave it all behind
How could we end it all this way?
When tomorrow comes we'll both regret
Things we said today...

If you leave me now, you'll take away the biggest part of me
Ooh, no, baby please don't go.

In case you haven't heard, Mason Raymond is headed to Manitoba, and Matt Niskanen to Iowa, to play in the minor leagues for the Vancouver Canucks and Dallas Stars, respectively. This comes on the heels of their All-WCHA First Team selections, and Nisky's selection as My Guy of the Year.

I guess this was somewhat expected, and it's better that it happened sooner rather than later, but I really really hate that they will be playing for my two most hated NHL teams. Both affiliate teams are located fairly close to here, so I hope to make a trip down to cheer for them.

I wish them all the best, but I really do wish they had returned for one more season. I guess we'll never know what might have been, and we'll have to re-load for next season without them, but I'm allowed to wish.

We'll miss you, guys. Keep your heads up and your sticks on the ice.

When LGM and I read this yesterday we figured you'd be depressed today. I'm sorry! That sucks!!

That sucks. I'm just waiting for the announcement that Wagner is leaving the Mavs. Sounds like it's pretty much a done deal that he's gone. There's some rumblings about Kalinski too, which would make me very, very sad. I think this week will be the week that I chain myself to him so he can't leave:)

Of course, the one we NEED to leave gets a damn 2 year contract. UGG! I'm trying to calm down from that, but there's a new article on it with the justifications (which really piss me off) in the paper that I'll post on my blog...some day!

I'll be writing on that situation as well, later on.
