Tom Rowe - Lowell Lock Monsters Head Coach / General Manager

The freakin' Lowell Lock Monsters coach has his name etched on Lord Stanley, BUT NOT Chuck Kaiton?!?! NOT someone who has been with the team since their induction in the NHL, is considered one of the GREATEST radio announcers EVER in ANY SPORT, was once President of the NHL Announcers/Broadcasters Association (something like that), AND is in the Broadcasting/Announcing Hall of Fame?!?! Saying THAT is BLASPHEMOUS is putting it quite mildly.

As much as I love the Canes AND respect all who got their names on the Cup, someone or some people have got their priorities screwed.

Between Mike Lange getting canned by the Pens and this revelation, there is simply no love for the game's greatest play-by-play men. *sighs*
