Great info – keep it coming Chris. Any word on why Espo and Antro are sitting?

Thanks for the update, Mr. Vivlamore. Your twitter updates, blogs and articles are must reads for Thrasher fans and we appreciate you!

(BTW, I saw you at practice yesterday just typing away on your laptop. Would’ve said hello and thanked you in person for all of the terrific work you do but I didn’t want to interrupt. But thank you!)

c-viv needs a statue built in his honor for all the great coverage he provides for our team. it’s a breath of fresh air. i know cormier mixed it up..but have there been any other disturbances as far as fights go, even though it’s not allowed? the leafs had one the other day..jay rosehill and mike liambas fought because of a dirty ron wilson was happy to see it happen even though they have a no fighting policy also. i guess that’s standard for most teams..quite different from the days when a young darcy hordichuk asked denny lambert to fight in the mens room. i miss hordichuk!

Just back from practice. I talked to Craig Ramsay and he said he is planning to move Bryan Little, back to the center position. Sees him as more of a center than a wing. Rich Peverley will move to right wing. That will be my story, which should be online later today.

Looks like Antropov and Esposito were just held as because of recent surgeries. I will admit to being a moron and forgetting to ask Ramsay about it, but I’m verifying now.

Ramsay had good things to say about practice. Still way too many turnovers for him. Wants to see more chipping puck off the boards. That will be subject of another blog later today (once my other story is written.)

I did talk to Fredrik Modin, but I will save that for tomorrow.

Those are the highlights.

BigMomma: Please stop and say hello. You won’t bug me. If I have the laptop open during practice I’m usually just catching up on some stuff (although yesterday I was writing the Cormier story).

Liquid: Thanks for the compliment. No real dust ups in scrimmages. None today. Esposito and Aliu did a little shoving Saturday, but nothing to it.

Thanks all.

My guess, and hope, on Antro and Espo is they are sitting just as a precaution. Both can practice tomorrow and get in one of the games next week.
