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?
So last time I talked prospects I mentioned that I’ve never been ice fishing before, and I probably never will be. I don’t do well in really cold weather (I’m sure living in Southern California my whole life has something to do with that). I went snowboarding in Tahoe once many many years ago and couldn’t have been […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So I gotta admit after doing my preseason rankings it made me realize that the business of ranking players based on potential future performance is f’ing difficult. I’m sure if someone with more fantasy hockey knowledge than me judged my rankings they could find some real stinkers too. All that said, it’s just too much fun picking […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So it’s been a while since I’ve updated the status of Sidney Crosby.. He’s been skating with the team recently, but there is still no timetable for his return. In fact at practices he has to wear a white no-contact helmet. (Which coincidentally is the same name I gave my junk 6 months into marriage). In all seriousness […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So the old man had 2 Goals and an Assist last night after a Goal and an Assist in the Flyer’s 1st preseason game. What does this mean you ask? I have no idea, but if I had to guess I’d say it’s just preseason noise. (And BTW I watched that game between New York […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
