Recommended Posts

Of course, the trade is made to address the ongojng injury problems on a day that the team announced that John Marino, a steal of a rookie dman and important part of the defense, will miss 3-6 weeks with broken cheekbones.  Smh.

There was a big cardiac episode scare for longtime Blues blueliner Jay Bouwmeester last night, as he collapsed near the bench, with the game being postponed while in period one.

Fortunately, it sounds like he's resting comfortably enough this morning.    Tests are ongoing.

As the world turns, Bruce gets fired again. I guess if you can't take Minnesota to the SC finals, You're just no damn good. I hope screwing over a guy who produced more than the talent deserved gets them the same reward the Ducks got.

On the other hand, it will be easier to get a good draft spot without Bruce around. He just wins too much with flawed teams.

Fancy pacemaker and hockey probably do not mix.  

seems like one of the good guys in the game. glad he survived but it's a tough way to end your career and to find out you have a bad ticker.

If he needs an implanted device just to keep his heartbeat at a reasonable rate, extreme exertion is probably not a great idea.

You should be happy to see them go get Zucker. He should be fairly dangerous next to one of the Pens' elite centers. They're not letting injuries get in the way of maximizing the Crosby/Malkin window

So far, i couldnt be happier.  His game fits Sid like a glove.  Being a Pens fan. I dont watch the west as much as i should.  I didnt realize that he's pretty damn good.

Yeah he's not getting a ton of assists but he put the puck in the net and he plays decent defense. Perfect guy next to Sid

That's cool.  And I didn't know the emergency goalie at the game can be used by either team.  

The first time I heard about that (although I'm sure that it had happened before) was when the Blackhawks had to go to one in a game against Winnipeg.

Toronto's practice goalie suits up against them as an emergency player and beats them. It'll be hilarious if those points cost them the playoffs

when he first entered the game, he was wearing a canes jersey and leafs pants. he changed at the intermission. such a great story for him.
