    Hi, Tom. I saw the link you provided in regard to St. Louis wanting to go to the Rangers. Thanks for the clarification.

    Hi, Tom. If a name appears in a headline, subheadline or slide title, it’s still best to write out the full name on the first reference in the text. Also, I probably should’ve added that an exception to excluding first names after that is when writing about two people with the same last name (if there could be confusion, etc.).

    Hope that helps.

    The best thing we can do is trade Girardi after resigning him. Reason being is that we can’t afford to lose a defenseman of that calibur without getting one back in return and obviously we can’t get one back in return if Girardi’s set to be a UFA this summer. But trading him would be the right idea because the style that he plays takes a toll on his body, he cant play that good forever

    Sorry about getting back to you so late, Tom. I don't recall the article in question, but odds are the citations were for specific rumors or direct quotes. Those require attribution regardless of whether or not the stories were published within the breaking news cycle.

    No problem, Tom. Glad to see the Rangers are finally turning things around!

    Your rangers article is re-directing to the wrong place...

    Tom! What's good my friend.

    Appreciate you saying that. It honestly hasn't been too tough.. I've always said that I am a bigger fan of the game than any one team, and I think they wanted to test that by putting me on the Blackhawks for a while.. ha.

    Kidding aside, I could never take issue with such a well-run organization like Chicago. They have so many good player and are so fun to watch, how could I complain?

    Hope this finds you well and that Rick Nash does not have a concussion.
