Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day: "Pau as facilitator was nice but we need him back offensively. He helped us to two titles, he can do it again, but he needs to go back to what he was before. I want THAT Pau back so much - otherwise, a trade is likely in his future, as much as it hurts me to say that." -- Sameera Ahmad
