I just received an email tip from a friend of the blog informing me that Chad LaRose will be at the DBAP tonight as the Durham Bulls take on the Norfolk Tides. Beer, hotdogs, and fries will be sold at discount prices. Word has it that after he throws out the ceremonial first pitch, Chad will be manning the previously "unmanned" table where the now infamous 2 for 1 vouchers are passed out. (j/k)
LaRose has been a busy bee as he just opened an RBC branch last week and was featured at the Hurricanes "Fun Fest" before that. Has he got some type of bonus clause in his contract that kicks in after so many public appearances? Go Chad!
Eric Staal was recently interviewed up in Thunder Bay and the young center already seems focused and prepared for the new season. (h/t to Kukla's Korner)
In other news, Bryan McCabe has reportedly agreed to waive his no trade clause so that the Leafs can finally try to trade him. Apparently, the defenseman is thinking about retiring to Florida, although some Leafs fans might argue that McCabe has already retired. Ouch!
Finally, it's almost 3PM and Puck Daddy, (and his illustrious editor), have yet to post anything about the possible relocation, retraction, reformation, or renovation of the Carolina Hurricanes. Slow news day!
