So if you told me yesterday afternoon that the Dolphins would only score 6 points against the Jets I wouldn’t be that shocked. But if you then said “and the Florida Panther’s will outscore them” I would recommend you have your head examined. You know who else should probably have their head examined? Steve Yzerman. You […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So alot of games tonight in the NHL and that means alot of random Goals by random players. The immortal Jet/Thrasher Jim “AC” Slater scored a pair of Goals tonight against the Blackhawks. It’s his 7th year in the league and only the second time he’s scored 2 Goals in a game. And oh yeah, these 2 were […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Claude Giroux’s successful plan to run Carter and Richards out of town couldn’t be going any better (unsubstantiated rumor). He’s scored a Goal in all 3 Flyer games now and added 2 Assists yesterday. I ranked him #28 overall a couple months ago and mark it down he’ll finish in the Top 20.. Just for craps and […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I apologize in advance for the lame title, but damn it’s hard coming up with something witty every night. Especially when there were only 2 NHL games on the docket. The big news (other than the never ending Crosby story) was Dany Heatley’s return to the City formerly known as Bytown. That’s not something I’d […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So it was the ultimate Ticker Tease in Washington last night. 10 Goals were scored, and yet not a single point from Ovechkin, Stamkos, St. Louis, Backstrom, Lecavalier, Semin or Green. It’s the equivalent of World War 3 breaking out and the US, China, Israel, Iran and North Korea having absolutely nothing to do with it… I wouldn’t draw any conclusions […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So ol’ Geno is ailing. Shocker. I can’t say I’m surprised but it is disappointing after I hyped him in the preseason. The Pen’s are acting all weird about the injury and even went so far as to sit Geno the entire game yesterday only to bring him out for a power play in the 3rd Period. Really strange and […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So apparantly Matt Cooke decided to put his head-hunting career on hold and try his hand at goal scoring. And even though 1 of the Goals was on the Power Play, I can’t see him staying on the 2nd PP unit all year. He’s a typical 3rd/4th line guy who is valuable on the Penalty Kill, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So the season starts today! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip… Okay sorry I can handle it. We get 3 quality games tonight with Canadians-Leafs, Flyers-Bruins and Canucks-Penguins. I see 4 cup contenders there (try and guess which 2 teams don’t make the cut?). All over the internet pundits are rolling out their “Power […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So I gotta admit I was a little surprised by this. It’s not like he had a huge drop in production and his off-ice distractions finally surpassed his ability on the ice. Avery is what he is –– a 3rd/4th line agitator who can give you 12-13 minutes a game and score a point every […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Okay I have a couple-few more busts to go over and don’t forget, the season starts in 2 1/2 days! I might be reaching a little bit with some of these guys, but I already identified my top busts here… Oh wait, that’s for my personal column. My top hockey busts are here. But before I get […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
