So this is climate change.  BC and Europe are blanketed by snow, while Toronto is tropical.  Doesn't seem so bad afterall.  Well, unless you were expecting the SICHL All-Star game to happen as scheduled.  After days of delays, the best of the best arrived just in time for a game-day skate and some autograph signing for the local Hamburgers.

"Are they really called Hamburgers?" asked an always-smiling Phil Kessel
