Summer is the the cruelest season for romance and hockey. It is a time when attachments that felt so secure are suddenly loosened and connections are changed or severed completely. Those cuts, whether bitter or sweet or a bit of both, are always accompanied by declarations of future happiness to come. In the case of that sun-kissed romance, it can be the promise of continued contact. In hockey, its a little less clear that Danny’s kissing Sandy but thinking of getting back home to Rizzo -um- Danny is thinking of retiring or possibly changing the colour scheme of his work wardrobe until the announcements hit the news outlets.
