I did re-read High Stakes this weekend, as I said I would. It didn’t really give a lot of new insight into this situation, except maybe raising the question that the Dispatch is exploring today — was Lamar Hunt right all along?
In happier news, the Hockey News draft preview is out. Picked it up last night at the Kroger at Chambers and Northwest. Looks like Ryan Ellis might be right in the Jackets’ sweet spot…some might be a little reluctant to pick another undersized defenseman after watching the continuing process of Kris Russell becoming an NHL player, but this kid did look quite good for Windsor in the Memorial Cup.
I’m also told there are some hockey games still being played somewhere. Anyone else hear this crazy rumor?
