Hagelin with minor injury; MSG to air more KHL games

First, I hope that everyone who reads this blog and all of your families are safe. Hurricane Sandy did a number on the tri-state area, and it was by far the worst storm we have ever encountered. I had a close call myself, as a tree that is (was) three feet from my bedroom window snapped, and the top half…

Musings: CBA time (again)

Are we really still in August? Hands up who thinks the season starts on time. Anyone? No one? Ok, let’s just muse a little. I read this about the CBA discussions on Wednesday: “The league’s Tuesday proposal didn’t address team revenue sharing”.
