Like Konstantinov, these teammates have all suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Konstantinov's came in June 1997, just six days after the Red...

Our latest article was linked on Puck Daddy yesterday. Yet, as usual, when it is anyone other than Greg Wysh from Puck Daddy, they included their usual hate on Wings fans. This time is was some new guy, Harrison Mooney, who's like a really poor man's Ryan Lambert:

Ian White's next dinner is on Jimmy Howard. "I told him I'd buy him dinner in St. Louis," Howard said. White suffered a fractured cheekbone Saturday night while blocking a puck with his face in the third period of the Red Wings' 5-2 victory over the Dallas Stars and won't be making the trip that begins tonight in St. Louis.
