The Injuries Just Keep Piling Up

Craig Anderson Leaves Team For Personal Reasons


Not really sure what this is all about, but it's obviously something that is fairly serious. This might explain some of why Andy hasn't looked like himself the past few starts. Dater assures us that this isn't a smoke screen for a trade and that he isn't hurt. All we can do is hope it's nothing too serious and that he gets whatever it is taken care of. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Craig.

Holos Back To Lake Erie

A quick video I took just before taking on The Avs Guild at Pepsi Center last night. I'm sad to report that both Andy and I gave up 4 goals in a losing effort last night. Final score MHH 3 - The Avs Guild 4. It was a great time and I can't wait to do it again next year as it looks like this is going to become an annual event. Pictures to follow soon. If you were in attendance last night and have pictures, feel free to email them to me and/or post them in a FanPost.
