I'd like to join the chorus in welcoming Southeast Shootout to the fold. They have a strong opening lineup including Cason of Casonblog, JP of Japers' Rink, and the Falconer from Do Thrashers have Large Talons, as well as two newcomers(?) in Ching Ning Ming for the Lightning and El Mojito for the Panthers. They also have a killer tagline ("Come for the Weather -- Stay for the Hockey"). That pretty much nails the demographic profile of the Southeast division fanbase, doesn't it (i.e, Canadian Cottontopped Snowbirds). Too bad it doesn't apply to their players. Of course, maybe that's not such a bad thing if you're a Canes fan.
