Wait, Kyle McLaren?

What in God's name? Your TBC editor neglects the hockey wires for the better part of a day then checks the nocturnal Twitters to find that Kyle McLaren is coming to the Thrashers' training camp?

Dudley likes the potential of what McLaren could bring to the table.

“Kyle is a big, strong guy who, if he can stay away from injuries, is certainly capable of playing in this league.”

Right, yes, sure. We're so totally going to climb aboard the "sign Kyle McLaren" train.

Your editor is a big K-Mac fan, but Christ-on-a-bike is he ever done, hockey-wise. The human body can only stand so many pulverizing hip checks.

We shouldn't get the big guy's hopes up.

This was my personal favorite KMac moment.

I was at the Tank for that game and it was one of the loudest non-goal moments I'd ever heard.

He really deserved better but his knees are shot. I hope he got the appropriate surgery to give him a second life but I gotta think his tendons are more brittle than Morrissey's opinion of Mike Joyce.

Wow, a visit from Mike Chen. I am truly in the presence of greatness.

This isn't the first time.

No, I meant YOU! If Mike Chen keeps coming back to visit, then you must be blogging royalty! ;-)
