The NHL was kind enough to pack most of its craziness into about a half-hour today, the kind of day that used to break before the draft, while we were usually at the GHO or whatever it was called that year: Hall for Larsson (!), Subban for Weber (?!?), Stamkos re-ups (.). Helpful, because I’m working on a non-hockey project and didn’t need my attention distracted. (We’ll have the lists up Friday.)
But then came a big news drop from the AHL:
To my @TheHersheyBears family/friends, I'm writing to inform you that HE&R has eliminated my full time position as of June 27. (1/3)
