I’ve been holding out on my Pros/Cons on the Brad Richards sweepstakes. I’ve got to tell you, I’m waffling, sort of as I did last year with Ilya Kovalchuk.
Got a lot of reasons to go either way. Maybe we can get into it later on today, or tomorrow.
Meanwhile, what’s Plan B? Tim Connolly? Brooks Laich?
There was talk yesterday about Jaromir Jagr landing back in Pittsburgh. And about Steve Stamkos close to re-signing in Tampa (that offer sheet was never going to happen anyway), and Kevin Bieksa re-signed with Vancouver.
This afternoon, at 3 p.m., the Hockey Hall of Fame will announce its Class of 2011.
NHL Network will broadcast the announcement. I’m not going to get too excited because the HHOF often screws this up. And how the heck Kevin Lowe isn’t in, and Clark Gillies is … well, that’s beyond me.
Finally, can we get through a day without me having to ban somebody or threaten to ban somebody? Please?
