Giving the Plot Away

It's an idea. Something Chris Holm and I have said we would like to collaborate on...a hockey story. I'd like to use my character former enforcer Morgan from "Backing the Stakes", but who knows? Chris has an imagination that hangs out in some pretty wild corners and if you haven't read his stuff, do so immediately. Yeah, collaborative writing is a challenge. Styles clash sometimes, sometimes they work. Leave it to the mischievous creatives at ESPN's SportsCenter to succinctly bait the imagination though. The kid in the cage Varlamov and the Great 8. The opening salvo of a thriller to say the least.
