No offense intended, Darren, but this sucks.
Craig Ramsey will undergo prostate surgery prostate surgery on Friday in an effort to deal with early stages of prostate cancer. Darren Rumble, former perpetual healthy-scratch defensiveman for the Lightning and current Springfield Falcons coach has been promoted to the Bolts for immediate fill in purposes.
There has been a lingering worry of mine something was up with Craig Ramsey - as if he was worried or not focused on the task of coaching with the Lightning this year... As if he was letting one thing or another slip through due to this worry. Now my fears have been realized that something was indeed wrong with Rammer -- who already has had his stomach removed in order to deal with ulcers, and almost died dealing with things before the removal -- and all I can do now is hope and pray that he gets well soon.
Tampa Bay Lightning fans are with you, Coach Ramsey.
