Site problems?

Is something wrong with the site?

I’ve noticed there’s been a couple other changes on the site, so I don’t know if this is a new format that isn’t responding well to my computer, but if you could at least post something saying what’s going on, or send me a PM about it, it would be greatly appreciated.

Needing only a couple of victories down the stretch, they ultimately came up one victory short, and saw the rival Devils take the division yet again. They would continue their losing streak for the first 4 games of the playoffs, and that was it for one of the cinderella stories of 05-06. As training camp arrives, fellow Ranger fans, we have a problem… The Rangers have too many solid kids ready and not enough roster space for them! …I never said the problem was a bad one.
