Maybe I'm too glib...

    I was reading the Glen Hanlon stories online today, and the heds were generally the same: Caps fire Hanlon.

    I began to think what hed I'd write if I were on the desk and came up with: "No Han-outs. Caps can Glen."

    Is it too glib? Too lame?

    Han-outs...hand outs...

    I'm probably overthinking this.

    Is it me, or was it kind of classless to fire the guy on Thanksgiving?

    Would it have mattered that much if he were fired, say, late Wednesday after the game?

    He's going to have to deal with the firing either way on Thanksgiving. Might as well go out with a bang!

    Well, for most of those guys, this is just another day. Since Canadian Thanksgiving is already done and gone.

    Too hard to figure out what the news is. Glen Hanlon isn't a big enough name that people are going to put it back together once you pull his name apart.
