I'd like to see George bring Skinner to the Caps.

He won't be on them for that long.

Google patent foramen ovale. It's not exactly a hole, more a flap in the wall between the two upper chambers of the heart that exists as part of the normal fetal circulation and is supposed to close at birth. Sometimes it doesn't and persists in about 10% of the adult population. It's not considered a big deal unless you have a stroke. Then, and especially in a young person, you have to worry that a tiny thrombus crossed it and went up to the brain. Letang will get a cardiac work-up and if they find a PFO, I would think he'd have a procedure to patch it, given he's had a stroke and if he can continue playing, doesn't want to be on anti-coagulants. It's a pretty routine procedure that can be done in a cardiac cath lab and doesn't require anything like open heart surgery. The question is how much damage did the clot do? Even a tiny one can be substantial and I hope he makes a full recovery. Remember Teddy Brusci, linebacker for the Pats? Same thing.

I believe that's about ratings.

I don't hate 'em but I don't like 'em as much as I used to. They've been cheapened by the inclusion of America's pro sports leagues and pro tennis.

It comes second nature to me.

Nah, they were very well attended. The usual suspects too...........

By the way, how comes there's no more tennis threads? I see MMA but no tennis and we're right in the thick of the Aussie Open.... Did the comments get too out of hand over there or something? Ugly, ugly tennis fans..............
Posted Friday January 24, 2014, About: Time to deal Letang
Letang to the Caps? We're going to be dealing for a D- man - and one who really likes to play defense - soon ( I hope ).

And Pete Carroll.

I hope he's still in discomfort tonight, we need all the help we can get. SOS.

Isn't the decision to keep up with the Russians and East Germans, etc. back in the day how our pros got involved in the first place?
And you're right, there's no going back.

That's a wee bit cynical, isn't it?

You don't like Poile?

Nothing like fresh legs, true.

I think Orpik's D has actually improved. Loved the Anaheim game even though I was pulling for Bruce.............

I'm old and cranky and don't like the NHL in the Olympics, or the NBA, MLB and especially pro tennis, but I'll watch the hockey.
Posted Thursday January 02, 2014, About: Carolina desperate to keep dealing
He's got a goal and 4 assists in the 7 games he's been in since returning from a concussion - his second since signing with the Canes. They're still glad to have him. He scored the OT winner against Montreal the other night.

Not that many games, why so democratic about it? And only if every team agrees to do it, right?
