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?
I’ve been an outspoken critic of James Neal this season but he continues to spit in my face with games like last night. A Goal and a pair of Assists gives Neal 20 Points in 18 games. Who needs Sidney Crosby? It’s clearly time to throw out his first 4 years in the NHL when he […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s getting close to that time in the season where if you’re sitting in 11th or 12th place now is the time to make a move. If you’re waaaay out of it ala SmarchSnow or BarberShop it’s time to start dropping unproductive players for hot waiver wire fodder. It’s also time to start throwing out hail […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
