As if Buffalo didn’t have enough problems, two of their players might have been exposed to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). According to reports, a relative of defenseman Brian Campbell might have SARS, and Campbell and defenseman Rhett Warrener visited the relative last week.
No one seems to think either defenseman has the mysterious disease. It’s just a precaution.
Also, center Curtis Brown broke his ankle Friday against the Habs. He’s out for the rest of the season.
I hope Tom Golisano, expected to be the Sabres’ new owner, buys good health insurance for the team.
In other SARS news, the International Ice Hockey Federation cancelled Sunday’s women’s world hockey championship due to SARS fears.
