We hope that you and your family & friends are safe.Reports about recovery situation are grim and in this hour of need our wishes reach out to those who suffer in Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath.
We are doing all we can to assist the people located in the affected areas. We are ready to help the charity organization, where there is a shortage of med by way of medical aid and relief for the affected and the survivor’s. Pleas let us know by visiting here,
Soo....can't these players just make up their own teams, DIY style and play at rinks?
Maybe "go on tour" with it? F. the NHL and really F the NHL teams. Call any team X from Anywhere as long as they are the best in the world I'd pay to watch it live.
Richards has really stepped his game up and shown a compassionate, humanitarian side in the relief efforts. Excellent to see.
What I don't like is the Rangers organization not helping out.
