One issue today: the Carey Price injury. My question: why is there so much controversy about this? Just shut him down. Not worth the risk. If he has a concussion, give him an early summer. Throw Robert Mayer in there and see what we got and, hey, we probably get a better draft pick. Don’t mess with Price’s head - literally - sit him, let him rest, and get ready for next year. Because barring something catastrophic, it can’t get any worse, and with a little luck, games in April will mean something. This year, they don’t mean a bloody thing.

The Price is Wrong B*TCH!
