Looking for new benevolent puppeteers: Pension Plan Puppets
[***UPDATE: I am not making this up: Kevin Poulin left the ice during warmups with a leg injury. My God this cursed franchise.}
Your main bit of news since this morning, which will shock you only if you weren't puzzled by news of Trent Hunter skating: Hunter is out for the season with that MCL tear and will have surgery.
The Isles also posted some morning bits on Nathan Lawson's recovery trail and how Blake Comeau started to suspect he had a concussion from Maxim Talbot's late hit.
This is your game thread. Let's really try to win this one, boys.
