And stories never get made up or exaggerated?

The amount of bs that gets made up about others, boggles my mind. There may be truth to it, whatever it is, but color me skeptical.

That's why I've always felt that TBL/Ranger should have said *something*. People are going to make up fantastical **** anyway, so you might as well throw an official version in for those inclined, to defend him with.

unrelated: Mavis Beacon died.

What you are suggesting has been been thrown out there a million times, and been refuted a million times. Nice try though...

It seriously has been kept under wraps about as well as anything can be. Anyone who claims they know anything is just flat out making things up.

None at all, and I wouldn't count on one. Paulie is more than likely done.

I don't get the obsession of having to know why he's not playing. All that matters is he's not here, he doesn't owe an explanation to anybody.

It's not an obsession, it's a level of curiosity that fans of the team have. And rightfully so.

The dude showed potential, then all of the sudden vanishes. Common curiosity is going to kick in with alot of people. They wonder what happened and if he's ok.

I wonder about it myself, and I wouldn't say I'm obsessed. When you're a professional athlete, alot of what you do is a on a public stage. You are also perceived to be well off and happy for the most part, so when something goes wrong people want to know.

When you give up something alot of people dream about doing for a job everyday, it's going to raise alot of questions.

I guess this should settle the more speculative rumours:

Quote:
- The Tampa Bay Lightning wouldn’t have had to sign Marc-Andre Bergeron if defenceman Paul Ranger were around, but Ranger, a very underrated offensive blue-liner with great wheels, decided he didn’t like the NHL much and dropped out. He’s taking some classes at the University of Ottawa.

Thats about what I figured.

Two major shoulder injuries in such a short span probably drove him away and back to school. Hope he does well, maybe he can come back in the front office or something.

Godspeed, Paul!

I don't blame him and I'm happy he's apparently happy but I hope the organization can move on. I'd hate if the "will he won't he" continues every training camp.
