Saturday's Dump & Chase: Is the NHL Cursed?

News broke yesterday that the Great and Powerful Sidney Crosby will miss two games for an 'illness' . We all know what that means, the Mumps, the plague devastating the ranks of our icebound warriors has now struck down the face of hockey...sorry Sidney, no joke intended there... A plague that began in the hotbed of deceit and evil known as the Pacific Division, that has struck Perry and now Crosby, all this adds up to mean only one thing: the NHL is being punished. The only way to return balance to the League is to anoint the only truly righteous and deserving team with the Cup (that's the Preds FYI). I see no other option to avoid the Apocalypse and since no one else has a solution, let's try mine and see if it works just in case. Have a great weekend folks!
