Any word on our goaltending situation? Trade deadline is on Friday, are there are indications that the Viper management, meaning John Glen of course, is working the phones? We are not dealing from a position of strength but need some help fast. Scoring a mere 112 goal but allowing 114 against in the first 40 games is troubling.

No offense but this blog is cluttered with enough information already, is there really a need to post an article about a 14 year old kid who merely tried out 5 years ago?

I admire your passion to anything vipers related....but this is a bit of a stretch in my opinion.
