If “The Pronger effect” is mentioned. Mark Recchi throws a bigger check than the two hundred pound defenseman running at him. Danny Carcillo and […]

Round 2 Picks

28th
Apr. × ’11

We’ll go into the success of my first round picks in a bit, but here goes.   Nashville vs Vancouver. Should be an intense series, but after after the seven game slug fest with the Blackhawks I’m not sure the Canucks can pull it off over the long haul. Predators for three reasons; 1: Weber […]

Honestly, I don’t want to, I’m not really looking forward to putting away my jerseys, but it may become reality. It isn’t a statement about the player who’s jersey I was wearing yesterday, or even the play of the team as a whole. My problem is two fold and at least one of them is […]

First and most obvious was Bergeron attacking the puck and setting up Krejci’s layup. Getting the first goal when you are the more offensively […]
