ATTENTION READERS: There will be a poll at the end of the links concerning the future of Bantering Points for the duration of the season’s suspension. Voting in the poll and/or commenting about it will help me decide how to handle Bantering Points for the time being, so any and all input will help push me towards a decision that you, the readers, want moving forward.

Here are today’s news and links:

With the hockey world grinded to a halt, hockey news (and more specifically, Rangers news) is going to slow to a crawl, making daily Bantering Points posts unjustified. How would you, the reader, like to see Bantering Points handled moving forward?
