Welcome to the Hockey Police State. This is someone's personal blog but I'm sharing it after a lengthy and annoying conversation last night on twitter in which a man insisted that "puck bunny" is a deserving title for women who sleep with hockey players. He constantly ignored the argument that by continually using the term, he is policing women's sexuality. It shouldn't matter whether or not a woman decides to sex and with whom - that is her business and hers alone. Ok lecture over. Carry on.

Sorry that most of the headlines were about last night's loss to the New Jersey Devils. There just isn't much Kings news in general.
