A Death in my Family.

Due to a death in my family, updates to Spector’s Hockey will be sporadic from October 5 to October 9, 2013.  Only the Rumors Page will be updated daily during this period. If a significant trade or free agent signing takes place, I’ll note it as well.  Regular site updates will resume on Thursday, October 10, 2013.  I appreciate your patience, understanding and support during this period.  Sincerely, Lyle Richardson, Spector’s Hockey.
