A few weeks ago, the Sens fan and blogging communities suddenly lost one of its own, Thomas DeChastelain, who wrote Sens Watch (site has been taken down). On the web blogs can take on a life of their own; it's easy to forget sometimes that each blog is connected to a person. A shocking and sad event like this is a jolting reminder.

Here's a short biography, taken from his website before it was taken down.

"Thomas DeChastelain is a retired Canadian Armed Forces infantry Captain. Tom grew up playing hockey in northern Quebec, prior to earning an Engineering degree. He currently writes stock market technical analysis articles on Quasimodos.com and devotes spare time to this blog. Tom currently resides in Ottawa with his wife and three child replacement units (the cats)."

My condolences to his family and friends.

Back to regular posting shortly.
