CHRISTMAS PLAYER EXCHANGE
The traditional Christmas Player Exchange breaky is once again slated for Denny’s, Dec 24th @ 10ish. In case you’ve forgotten how this works, you select one player from your roster to throw in the pot and we draw them out of a hat. It’s voluntary, and usually full of jetsam, but who knows, you may end up with a player who currently is over a point per game….and can dance.
AROUND THE LEAGUE
Dallas Scoreboard is Best in the Biz. Check out Wednesday night’s offering:
The Canucks reminisced about old times Monday night, remembering when they put together “the last great trio in the NHL.” (easy there, Botchford…)
Naslund, Morrison, & Bertuzzi could have been greater if not for Big Bert’s going “full retard” on Steve Moore back in ’04.
And what did TSN Team1040 talk about on Tuesday morning? Retiring those numbers, along with Kurtenbach, Luongo, Larionov, Gradin, Tanti, Lever, Messier…. Actually, Hamhuis probably deserves his number retired after taking one in the face and then getting up and skating off…Burrows would still be on the ice.
The “West Coast Express” was a catchy nickname, and there have been some good ones through the years:
- The Flyers had a few -“The Crazy 8’s Line” — Philadelphia Flyers (1990s) — Eric Lindros, Mark Recchi, and Brent Fedyk because the players jersey numbers were 88, 8, and 18 respectively; “The Legion of Doom“—Philadelphia Flyers (1994–97)—Lindros, John LeClair and Renberg
- “The Hound Line”—Toronto Maple Leafs (1980s)—Wendel Clark, Russ Courtnall, and Gary Leeman – all three had played for the Notre Dame Hounds
- “The Triple Crown Line”—Los Angeles Kings (1970s–80s)—Dave Taylor, Charlie Simmer and Marcel Dionne; a reference to the Kings’ logo, which features a crown; this was the first line in NHL history where each player scored 100 points or more in the same season (1980–81).
- How about the Islanders current 4th line? Matt Martin, Casey Cizikas, and Cal Clutterbuck are known as “E=mc2 Line.” (I’m sure “Brooksie” came up with that.)
- “The French Connection”—Buffalo Sabres (1972–1979)—Gilbert Perreault, Rick Martin, and Rene Robert; made up of three French-Canadian players (although Rick Martin sounds more English than French)
Personally, these are my favorite trios:
Not really a trio; I always thought Maurice carried them anyways.
Speaking of trios, Why did these three never get together? Maybe there’s a chance they could perform yet?
“…and after the photo, Joan Jett stilettoed the photographer to death. He HAD been warned. So, we all had a good laugh about that.” Deborah Harry, in her book, “Shit We Did”
EZ had some solid D this week; getting 7 points each from Josi & Ristolainen. T-Man used Faulk’s 9 points for a solid week, but Cordy’s newly acquired Crawford registered back-to-back SO’s and 10 points.
Not so much Player OTW, but more “Play” OTW.
- Dustin Byfuglien is 6-5, 260 pounds.
- Bryan Bickell is 6-4, 223 pounds.
- And BOOM! goes the dynamite!
RIP Scott Weiland
