Bring back the one-liners. I like the tease they bring to the story. These are boring. Don't you know I'm bored at work and need updates to pass the time?

I like the one-liners, too. Seeing a list like this is kind of boring.

I think Frank Coonelly has reached his breaking point and he hasn't even been in this town for a year yet. His tenure might get very interesting very soon.

Koz said...

One year for $7.4 million!?

Shoot me.

I imagine that is quite similiar to the pens offer? Except 4 years longer? I suspect he will be booed worse than Jagr ever imagined.

I guess leaving the one-liners out is almost acceptable, but if you're going to do it in this format, could you double-space it please? A little hard on the eyes...

One liners are good, double-spacing would be nice for the lists, but for God's sake man, give me some kind of warning when you publish a headline like "Arizona's Chris Snyder fractures a testicle"!! It's buried 2/3rds of the way down after some innocuous links, and I spit my breakfast all over my Matt Capps t-shirt! You'd better hope that didn't jinx him...
