In a bit of a rush this morning, so I will leave you to the, as always, excellent reading selection below.
Quickly though, two important pieces of news dropped yesterday.
First, due to family reasons, Vincent Damphousse has retracted his candidacy for the General Manager position.
Second, Carey Price has been officially diagnosed with a concussion and will miss the "rest" (okay, two games) of the season.
Are you disappointed by Damphousse's withdrawal? And would you give callup Robert Mayer a chance to play tonight, the second of back-to-back games?
