The Gulf Between Golf and Round Two Wears No. 19

(WECK 1230) — He’s still here, you know? The No. 5 pick in the 1999 draft. The penalty-killer, power-play-passer and sleight-of-hand stick handler. The $4.5 million price tag. The “trade him before it’s too late” center. All-in-one blue-and-gold uniform labeled  Connolly. He’s handled himself with class this year, a season marked by folks like me… Continue Reading

Time for Darcy Regier to Show Some… Guts

(WECK 1230) –Let me apologize in advance for this random Sunday musing, because it’s kind of a brain-acher (If that doesn’t stop you from reading, what will?). I’ve been looking for the right “in” to attempt this column for a while, and I’ve found a nice half-assed one, so here goes. Jim Matheson of the… Continue Reading

The Time Has Come To Part Ways With Regier

(WECK 1230) — It’s easy to type these words on the night the Buffalo Sabres are vanquished by an inferior — in talent — foe, but let me assure you I decided to post this when Raffi Torres was the team’s only trade deadline acquisition.
