Go Home! TAGGED : Stan Bowman

The Awkwardness Of Duncan Keith

I suppose this is just going to be a normal thing, especially when the Hawks infiltrate Canada and Toronto specifically. But it was Duncan Keith’s turn to get the puff piece treatment, this time from Pierre LeBrun. It would be extremely hard to believe, and to convince me, that this was

Well Now You’ve Got A Boqvist Problem
