Several teams made big jumps in the standings this week, with the Toronto Make Beliefs (RCL 1) leading the way, scoring a perfect 22 points. True North Puck Co. (RCL 1) and Laraque Bottom (The CHeap Seats) each picked up 21 points, while Razzmatazz (RCL 1), Shiska (Bobby Hull Division), and Detroit Rust Rats (Bobby […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
For the most part, things have been quiet for the Penguins. Letang & Crosby are still out and the team is just 4-6 in their last 10 games. They’ve slipped to 4th in their division (behind New Jersey of all teams) and the Playoffs are no sure thing anymore… BUTT, there has been one constant this […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you haven’t heard, the Canadians and Flames paired up for a trade. It was essentially Michael Cammalleri for Rene Bourque (there were draft picks & inconsequential players involved also). In the short term it looks like a win for Calgary. Camm-Camm should fit in nicely with the Flames, and as long as he’s healthy I […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Of course after I pimp Neuvirth the dirty Cap’s start Tomas Vokoun and he pitches a Shutout. AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! I’ve decided predicting Goalie performance/playing time is a futile effort. Unless you are the best of the best, elite of the elite, you are no sure thing… And even those guys (ahem…… Ryan Miller……. ahem) can struggle for a season. And […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jaroslav Halak‘s triumphant return to Montreal was everything he could have hoped for. He got into town early so he could visit his favorite Montreal Establishment (to get all the poison out) before the game and it clearly showed. Yes the punchless Canadian’s only made him make 19 saves, but Halak had a little thing called Karma on his side… Or […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Patrick Sharp got hurt against Detroit because he was either A) slashed by Jiri Hudler or B) fell hard on the ice during a penalty kill. The one thing we do know, which by the words being used means we know nothing, is that he has an upper body injury and will be out 3-4 […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jethro (The CHeap Seats) led all teams this week, scoring 20 points. Here are the leaders in each category for the week, with the average in brackets: 18 Goals (10): Team Vigilante, Sin Bin Sadists (RazzPuckBunnies) 23 Assists (15): BroadStreetBullies (The CHeap Seats) 26 +/- (+6): Rocky Mountain Thigh (RCL1) 56 PIM (20): Shiska (Bobby Hull Division) 14 […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Mike Ribiero went rib eye yesterday and sniped 2 Goals to give him a whopping 8 this year. What sucks is that I was particularly high on this guy in the preseason. My thinking was that with the loss of Brad Richards, Ribiero would increase production on a Chinese-manufacturing pace. Instead he’s on the same […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jonas Hiller is having one of the worst seasons in the history of Ducks Goaltending… And I should know, I lived through the Mikail Shtalenkov/Ron Tugnutt/Guy Hebert Era’s back when I was a wii-lad (unsponsored product placement)… Well Hiller is making those guys look like Patrick Roy. I can’t explain it other than to speculate that […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well that’s what I assume happened after the Lightning gave up 7 Goals to the Leafs. It really amazes me that a team that went to the Conference Finals just last year would be so slow to address such a glaring weakness. Yeah yeah their Defensive corp is lacking as well (Jeremy Roenick seems to think thats […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
