Addicted to Hockey? Round V

Now that the sound of baseballs hitting leather and wood have begun echoing through Florida's increasingly humid air, competing for the attention of sports fans across North America, it's time again to determine whether you're truly a hockey fan.

If you're not sure, just ask yourself these questions:

~ Did you call in sick from work to follow every transaction made on the NHL's trade deadline day? If so, what was your excuse?

~ Have you ordered your Detroit Red Wings' Todd Bertuzzi jersey? How about an Islanders' Ryan Smyth jersey?

~ Has the word "playoffs" popped up in your everyday vocabulary?

~ Do you believe Peter Forsberg really will make a difference in Nashville?

~ Are your hockey jerseys at the dry cleaners? Or do you use Woolite?

~ Were you saddened by Martin Biron's departure from Buffalo?

~ You wonder whether Eric and Jordan Staal really enjoyed that pillow fight in the NHL "Road Trip" commercial? To me, that was not acting.

~ Have an inkling that Konstantin Pushkaryov just might be the steal of the deadline-day deal between Dallas and Los Angeles?

~ Do you think of cartoon character Popeye whenever watching Tampa Bay's Shane O'Brien skate? If you haven't, watch him some time. I promise you'll notice a resemblance.

~ Are you passing up on Upper Deck's "Be A Player Portraits" and "Game Used" offerings simply because you already have enough Sergei Federov cards in your collection?

I haven't yet gotten my Penguins Laraque jersey...

But I did just get an old-school Tiger Williams one!
