Week 8 – Coach Category Coming?

So……as for GoJo’s coaching proposal… it just got to be a lot more interesting and enticing proposition after the Panthers surprise firing of Gerard Gallant this week. Imagine how the non-traders would react to that. And, in case you forgot, we did vote to bring in a coaches category (VI e. Starting in 2017-18, a COACH category will be implemented. Point values to be determined.)

Gallant fired, waits 30 min on road for cab to pick him up.

Gallant fired, waits 30 min on road for cab to pick him up. It’s a glamorous life.

Perhaps the Panthers need to be more anal with their analytics.

THE WEEK IN BULLETS

  • The Best: Vinny has a huge week with 43 points
  • 3-0: Vinny goes 3-0, as do Cordy, Derko, & EZ
  • Team Effort: Everyone on team Vinny contributed at least 2 points
  • Movers: Derko jumps up 2 places to 5th; JBR up 2 places to 10th
  • Trade: Orv traded Okposo BF to Cordy for Lindell DL & Rolphy’s 2nd in ’17
  • Pick-up: R&S used their pick up to grab another Ryan this week. Ryan Sproul of DET – dropped poor Erik Johnson (lost a season due to golf cart injury in 2009) and recently blocked a shot with his tibia. OUCH.
  • Next pick-up: goes to a lottery with R&S getting 1,2,3, Stifler has 4 & 5, Orv has 6. And it’s a “4” so STIFLER gets the next pick-up.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Kevin Shatten”pants” STL had a 7 point week for Derko, but Chad Johnson got 8 points for Vinny. Not bad for a “back-up” goalie (or a retired NFL wide receiver.)

Vinny plans to honor “Ocho Cinco” by now referring to Calgary’s Chad Johnson as “Trente et Un.”

And now we even have Pad Fouls.

The key word is tasteful. That’s the thought that comes to mind seeing the pads of this young goaltender. Over the summer, Devils netminder Keith Kinkaid held a contest for fans to design his pads for the 2016-17 NHL season. There were a number of entries, including one from Devils’ center Adam Henrique that featured Stephen Gionta in the timeless art of seduction pose, as best displayed by George Costanza of “Seinfeld” in “The Package” episode.

Carlyle: Gibson unable to relieve Bernier vs. Flames due to diarrhea

Extenuating circumstances prevented John Gibson from trotting onto the ice in relief of Jonathan Bernier during a lopsided 8-3 loss to the Calgary Flames on Sunday.

“We had to leave Bernier in the net because Gibson had diarrhea and had the flu all day,” Anaheim Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle candidly admitted after the game, per Kristen Odland of Postmedia.

Had Gibson been available, Bernier would have been yanked at the 12:55 mark of the second period.

Perhaps this will make Bernier’s .680 save percentage on the night a bit easier to stomach.
