If you believe as we do at FDH that the NHL still comprises part of the "big four" of the American sports landscape (with allowances for NASCAR and perhaps college football and college hoops on that level as well), then one of the more significant long-term stories of the year - - which materialized in the past 24 hours -- is sliding under the radar.

Binghamton, NY - Saturday the Binghamton Senators received word that the parent Ottawa Senators recalled forwards Brian Lee and Zack Smith, further depleting the B-Sens already thin roster; the result of injuries and call-ups.
