Better Late Than Never

As the title indicates, I'm a bit late in posting
the news of Jim Rutherford's being re-signed as the Canes' General Manager for five more years. But, I shall make up for that with a startling revelation I discovered not super long ago about said man of the hour...

JR and Robert Fripp were separated at birth. I swear it, as a huge fan of the Canes AND King Crimson/Fripper.

Don't believe me? Check it out...

*insert dramatic hockey organ music sounding strangely like Frippertronics here*
That was the best looking picture of Fripper I could find...but, if only he had narrower glasses... o_O
Also on the belated Canes news front is the fact that the Canes also re-signed their goaltending consultant, Greg Stefan, who is now officially a head coach thanks to the deal. It should also be noted that because of the deal, Stefan may very well now officially be the longest lived goaltending consultant in the history of the Hartford Whalers/Carolina Hurricanes franchise.
Last, but certainly not least, today is Michael a.k.a. Hockey Fanatic's birthday. Here's to wishing him a happy and hearty one, AND hoping that the Pittsburgh Penguins pull out a win in Ottawa not only for the sake of my sanity, what little there is left; but also and especially as a nice little present for Mike.
