-Everyone goes out of their way to credit Anaheim's turnaround to the return of Scott Niedermayer
. Why has no one pinned their lousy start on the fact he sat home for the first 20-some games?
-Speaking of which, since veteran players can apparently take off a ton of games at the start of the year, why all the uproar about going to 84 games?
-Which all-star(s) will go into the tank in the second half?
-Am I the only one who liked it better when Fastest Skater competitors skated around the rink?
-Why does "family friendly" automatically mean "next to no camera time for the Ice Girls"?
-How funny would it be to see Bob Clarke
selected as the next GM of the Leafs?
-How much longer can Les Jackson
keep Brett Hull
's itchy trigger-finger at bay?
-With the Rangers starting next year in Prague, wouldn't it be interesting if Jaromir Jagr
wasn't a Blueshirt by then?
, check. Eddie Giacomin
, check. Mike Richter
, check. Mark Messier
, check. Brian Leetch
, check. Adam Graves
...? Graves was a popular and effective Ranger, but does his number really belong
in the rafters at MSG?
-Thanks to Alex Ovechkin
in the Skills Competition, and Rick Nash
and (in the US, anyway) great in-game audio from Rick DiPietro
and Manny Legace
, the big question from All-Star Weekend is: Sidney who?
I fully agree with you. I liked the skaters going around the rink, the rare ice girl sighting, and all the commentary with the players. Here's another question why was it necessary to have Mr. Bettman on to spew his bs for half of the third period? If he spoke like a human and not a corporate honcho I would appreciate him more. Let me get back on topic. Great blog and overall great weekend.
Got to love AO. The Caps are so very fortunate to have him, for many reasons.
One burning question...What the hell is that growing on my....
Enjoyed Manny miked up all weekend. After getting beat 2-on-1 by Hossa: "My little leg doesn't stretch that far!"
i agree with jsaq, what the hell is growing on his....
