I might have found reason to be alarmed that Brent Burns was not present for the 10 am skate on Thursday. I am easily alarmed. I know it isn’t necessary or even good for the guys to be skating every day so far in advance of training camp. To quote Indiana Jones, “it’s not the years, honey…” but I will still get a little nervous when someone I am used to seeing isn’t there. Apparently Burns was “Out golfing at silver creek to support emq! What a course! Thanks for allowing me out here! #four! yfrog.com/gyz2cfzj.” Even for a habitual worry wart, there was no cause for alarm.
Burns was not the only one missing but he is such a big presence that you notice his absence.
