    FILE - In this Feb. 21, 2013 file photo, Education Secretary Arne Duncan speaks in Danbury, Conn. Senate Democrats are introducing legislation that would replace the one-sized-fits-all national standards of No Child Left Behind with ones that states write for themselves. Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa on Tuesday was ready to announce a bill that drops some of the education law's requirements that critics said were unrealistic, such as a 2014 deadline for students to perform at grade level in math and reading. Instead, states would write their own improvement plans. The proposed system is similar to one Education Secretary Arne Duncan already has in place for 37 states and the District of Columbia. Those states received waivers to the requirements in exchange for customized school improvement plans. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill, File)

    FILE - In this March 19, 2012 file photo, Washington Capitals defenseman Roman Hamrlik, of the Czech Republic, waits for a pass during the first period of an NHL hockey game against the Detroit Red Wings in Detroit. The Rangers are adding veteran defenseman Hamrlik to the roster while they wait to find out the severity of Marc Staal's eye injury.
