    Wow, back when they were both writers, I always thought John was kind of Frank Brown's protege ... and I don't mean that as any sort of knock. Good for John, he'll do solid work.

    Pardon my ignorance, but didn't Frank Brown once make this move? What is he doing now?

    Frank still works for the NHL as the Group Vice President of Media Relations.

    john is as classy a man as there is.

    protege would be the wrong word, although most of us of that generation worshipped frank.

    but ye gods -- working with bernadette mansur...
    i wouldnt wish that on my enemies, and john was one of my best friends.

    Dellapina is an outstanding, hard-working person.

    Then there's Frank Brown.

    I had a very fun conversation with a toasted mansur once.

    OK, details.

    (BTW, "toasted mansur" sounds like something from the breakfast menu at the Ritz Carlton).

    John is one of the good guys in this business. It seems like the good ones are leaving in droves. Damn.

    Nothing bizarre and totally hockey-related. She tried to explain away the broken chairs in Nagano, among other things, as she waved a glass of booze around. I don't even remember all of it, but it was amusing.

    God bless media hospitality suites.
