Orv’s beloved Sabres have been slipping lately, but they look good doing it. Always remember to do your hair before a donnybrook.

THE WEEK IN BULLETS

  • Short week saw Fulty take the big week with 32 points
  • He went 3-0, as did Rolphy & EZ
  • Movers: EZ jumps up to 8th spot; Orv’s up to 11th
  • HOT: EZ is 10-2 in the past 4 weeks – riding his trio of hot Blue Jackets
  • NOT: Erty is 1-11 in the past 4 weeks – injury bug hitting
  • Pick up for the week is a lottery; R&S get 1-3, Stifler get 4&5, JBR gets 6…..and it’s a “6”. JBR has until Sunday Jan 1 to make his pick-up…. lots of prime WJC watching time.
  • OFHL Christmas Banquet this Saturday 10:30 @ Denny’s — Player Exchange: Team with best record picks first; next team has option to steal or pick…..

 PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Dubnyk MN (GoJo) & Andersen TO (Rolphy) get the POTW nods as they both got 6 points. It could have gone to Jaromir Jagr as he passed Messier & moved into 2nd place all time in NHL scoring with 1888 points, the last one, as Jagr put it, came “off my ass.”

JAGR FACTS

60% of the current NHL players were born after Jagr played his first NHL game.

#68. Only jersey number worn during his NHL career, which commemorates the 1968 Prague Spring in his native Czechoslovakia and a remembrance of his grandfather, who died that year Soviet jail for refusing to work his farm for free.

Jagr has played against Guy Lafleur, (the 1971 No. 1 overall draft pick) and Auston Matthews (the 2016 No. 1 pick)

SHRAPNEL

Jumbo Joe reveals what he believed was a portrait of himself…

It was a portrait....done by a 5 year old.

Jersey Fouls

It’s a bit of a thinker, unless you’re a Cleveland Browns fan (in which case it’s a life-long nightmare)

Get it? The Browns are 0-14 right now.....

Didn’t think so…

Besides the WJC, Bowl Games are coming up, so here’s a football moment to warm your heart.
