When I was getting my journalism degree at Ohio State, I said to myself, "I want to be a hockey writer." And here we are. Former editor of Buckeye Sports Bulletin and a longtime hockey nut thanks to the Cleveland Lumberjacks. I occasionally put on skates and goalie pads. Will watch any level as long as there's sticks and pucks.

He did in fact. That would also have to be an intriguing option, but who the heck knows what's going on in Edmonton. I feel like they're more likely to try to stabilize things rather than trades just given the talent on hand.

I think sometime, somewhere, somehow, the CBJ add a center.

Look, I've been in the media for my entire adult life. I love the media. But sometimes we just make mountains out of molehills. It's one game out of 82. If you can't write a story without his quotes (and frankly, he even gave you a great one), what are you doing? It's not a big deal to me at all. And from the team perspective, it's one of out 82. People probably want him to come out and rant and rave, but you know what? It's one game. You write it off and try to get better, which is essentially what he was saying.

He gave an interesting presser today and did a weekly radio spot that was great as well. Could he have done that after the game? Perhaps, but who really cares? And if you think he's lost the locker room... This team has been at our around first place all year. I think they're likely fine.
