NO… It’s been a tricky season for the bleach-blonde former philly philanderer. I think that’s how you spell philanderer. Anyway Hat Tricks always get my attention so Jeff Carter gets top billing tonight despite his less than stellar season thus far. I don’t think this game means he’s back, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. I (and […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Congratulations to all Claude Giroux owners out there (and I’m not talking about his 4 points yesterday). I’m talking about the fact that he returned from a concussion after missing just 10 days. Now maybe it’s because he’s never been concussed before (which I find hard to believe), but more than likely he’s just one of those […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Not that I think Jonas Hiller is over the hill, but come on using his name in a title about how much he sucks kinds of lends itself to it. I’ve had a hard time diagnosing exactly what’s been wrong with Hiller. The Ducks roster hardly changed at all from last year and yet nothing is the […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Zak Dream Team (RCL 1) was the team of the week, scoring a perfect 22 points. KyHabs (The CHeap Seats) was right behind, notching 21 points. Here are the leaders in each category for the week, with the average in brackets: Goals (9): 21 TheMustaches (Bobby Hull Division), Toronto Make Beliefs (RCL 1) Assists (16): […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The concussion monster dealt a death blow to Chris Pronger yesterday. Kinda wierd they would IR him for the season considering Philly could be playing for another 6+ months. The rumor is Pronger triggered a new CBA rule where once you go over 200 career concussions, you can’t play again that season. I for one am bummed […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ve already preached about the current run Tim Thomas is on, but it’s worth preaching again. Since the start of the 2007-2008 season Timmay has 130 Wins to just 64 Losses. And his ratios are ridonkulous: .931SV%/2.35GAA/25SO… We are talking about 4+ seasons here and it really is remarkable considering he didn’t make his NHL debut […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m really beginning to hate concussions. They are fantasy poison because the players eventual return is always a huge mystery. And believe you me, it’s not going to get any better. We’re in the early years of the concussion era in hockey. The science of the brain (and brain injuries) has caught up and they are […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A few days ago I summarized the Chicago Goaltending situation like this: “Don’t look now but brother man has saved 69 of the last 73 Shots directed his way (spanning 2 1/2 games). And believe me he has a great chance to earn alot more playing time going forward. Corey Crawford would have a tough […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I love how NHL.com headlines always calls out random milestones like they actually mean something. Last night it was the immortal Jose Theodore. What was his milestone you ask? He was playing in his 600th career NHL game… That’s it. To put into perspective just how worthless and inconsiquential a milestone like that is: He still needs 261 more […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
You know that feeling you get in your stomach when you get pulled over by a cop? Yeah that’s the feeling I got when I read this. Stupid clumsy Kunitz! I warned all Crosby owners (including myself) another concussion was a distinct possibility and that if it did happen it would likely end his season (again). The good news is […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
