I wrote this about J-Quick back on November 16: “And oh yeah, J-Quick is the most underrated Goalie in the NHL right now.” I for one second that notion. In fact I third, fourth, and fifth it. He single handedly beat Florida last night (41 Saves) to boost his season line to 11W/.936SV%/1.97GAA/4SO. I know […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another rough night for Martin Brodeur leads me to believe it could be official. Most declared him dead after last season but I was still holding out hope. Unfortunately Hope turned out to be a 300lb alcoholic. Just look at the stats: 5-5/.899/2.81/0SO. That is horrawful. Another red flag is the fact that Johan Hedberg has […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
On November 15th Roberto Luongo had one of those phantom UBI’s pop up and the next night Cory Schneider got lit up by the Blackhawks. It was a bad start to say the least, but since then he’s given up 4 Goals in 5 games (incl 2 Shutouts). Last night he saved 47 of 48. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s been quite a week for injuries and Coach firings. It’s funny how firings seem to be contagious in all the sports. First it was Davis Payne of the St. Louis Blues being replaced by Ken Hitchcock. After that went well (and lit a fire under the now streaking Blues) suddenly GM’s around the league felt […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let’s face facts: In his first full week back, after missing an entire year, Sidney Crosby was the best player in the league. His line for the week: 2G/6A/+7/8PIM/2PPP/15SOG. That’s called game changer. If you own him, your team BC (before Crosby) was an entire notch below where your team is now. Borderline playoff teams that own […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s the Red Wings and the Bruins on NBC! This means that even the 90 year old couple who has one of the first color televisions ever built can watch a hockey game. Sure they may have to adjust their rabbit ears to get a good picture, but they can watch hockey nonetheless. For those of us who love hockey […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another light night in the NHL and another win by the Leaf’s, meaning 24 straight hours of “can the Leaf’s make the playoffs?” Just ask me dummies (ahem…Dreger….ahem). “The Toronto Maple Leafs are back and better than ever! In order to be reborn, you must die completely!” Hey, how did you get into this conversation […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s official, Sidney Crosby is back. The headlines are infinite: NHL.com – Sid-sational Debut! TSN.Com – Mid-Season Form! Yahoo – Welcome Back, Kid! (Not much effort there Yahoo). NBC Sports – Super Mario? No, Super Sidney! FOX Sports – Crosby Thrills (btw, check out their site. Every headline is 2 words or less it’s like […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I remember looking at the Blue Jacket depth chart Tuesday to see who was going to start in place of ECHL Goalie Steve Mason. Turns out it was career journeyman/terrible goalie/anarchist Curtis Sanford. Here’s the blurb from the game recap: “Sanford gave Columbus arguably its best goaltending performance of the season by making 26 saves in a 2-1 shootout loss to the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Chris Stewart was suspended 3 games by someone who looks like he should be in a Geico commercial. I feel like at the end of every one of Brendan Shanahan’s explanations he needs to say “That was so easy a cave-man could do it!”… Okay okay, he’s not a neanderthal, but can he at least lighten up […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
