Just saw on ECHL transactions that South Carolina waived (D) Scott Langdon, big physical presence on the blue line with a mean streak, hopefully K's could give him a look!  Could help limit the liberties other teams are taking on Marino, Auger & our goalies!

Don't hold your breath, although all the different colors your face will turn would be pretty.....I don't think it would be very good for you.
