Change in Hartford

The big news is upstate today: Howard Baldwin is indeed out at the Whale. Paul says AEG may take them over; I’d heard maybe the Rangers. Either way, last season of their lease.

Spent a little time at minicamp today, sandwiched between hitting, I have to think, every conceivable bit of traffic in the metropolitan area with the exception of whatever happened on the Belt Parkway this morning. Will have some stuff along the way during the week: one returning, one newbie, one local.

There were reports of Scott Arniel to the Chicago Wolves over the weekend; it’s official now. Also recent reports of Terry Murray to Adirondack.

Corey Locke to TPS Turku.

Holy cro. Have seen that view before — well, minus the fires. Unreal. (via fearless ‘net leader @spbowley)

And RIP, Nora Ephron.
