I guess that's why the Oilers are so bad lately...not only do the players help out at charities...but their wives do also!

We should stop that right now and focus on hockey!

Bunch of pretty boys.

Saturday night several Wild players had a post game charity gig for local food shelves. I think it is pretty common for all teams this time of year.

Speaking of the Wild....what a great game last night against the Coyotes. We were ahead 3-2 and then had 2 open net goals to put the nail in the coffin. The Dowd/Brunette/Johnson line kicked some serious ass!

Colorado tomorrow night.

Yes, you are correct LPieski.

Gaborik needs to get off his duff and start scoring goals.
I'm gonna have a pep talk with him this Friday when I get his autograph at our local Cub foods outlet.
"Shoot the damn puck, would ya?"
I swear, Gaborik has the meanest wrist shot in the NHL but I think he's like double covered all the time.

It's happened. Mike Comrie has been traded. The Flyers will be even better now. Talk about elite. A run for the Cup seems to be the modus operandi of the day for Bobby Clarke and co. At first look, it seems to be a really bad deal for the Oilers, but I'm sure Lowe knows what he's doing. He gets a young, promising defenseman (Jeff Woywitka) and a couple of picks, a 1st rounder in '04 and a 3rd rounder in '05. I can't quite get my head around this deal... but whatever has happened, Philly has definitely become the best team in the East. Good thing they have psychological issues with Ottawa, which might be the one thing that will prevent them from going anywhere, again.

Meh. Maybe they are toooo elite for something like that.
No, no! I was only joking. The Canucks are also very much involved in many levels of the community. Community involvment is a huge requirement to play for Vancouver. They were just at BC Children's Hospital for one of their routine visits, and they're contstantly signing autographs at various Save On Foods in and around Vancouver. They were involved in the Canucks Fan Run, raising money for the Canucks For Kids Fund (just another great organization they're a part of). They also have their annual Telethon, of course, raising money for various children's charities in Vancouver and BC. I'm sure I haven't even touched the tip of the iceberg, but you get the idea!

Interesting how you scoffed at me earlier in the year for placing them in the "elite" category... also interesting to note the proximity between the flames and the canucks.



Enough with rubbing griffs...

Comrie's rights have been traded. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for him to be signed.

Now, admittedly you didn't say they weren't elite, but as always you tried to overshadow another team with the stats of the Canucks (I consider that a scoff my friend).

I wonder what would happen if we did the same thing 30 games into the season, versus 10... hmmm.



PS- we won't get into the Tampa Bay thing again... I still think they'll make their rise.

AdamsPoptart - That's awesome you got to see him break the record. One thing I've noticed with Wayne's record breaking and milestone goals is they've been some of his least spectacular. His 500th goal was into an empty net; his 50th in 39 games was also into an empty net. Even his 802nd goal which you saw was sort of into an empty net, with Kirk Mclean waaay out of position! It was a nice play though. I saw Gretzky play for the Kings back in '92 when I went to Disneyland. They beat Patrick Roy's Habs 5-3, and Gretzky had a goal and 3 assists. I really miss watching him play, too. There's not one guy in the NHL today who can even come close to doing the things he did pretty much ever shift - even the little things like turning back at the offensive blue line at the perfect time, finding the late guy every time. He made the game look easy, made it poetic.

The irony is he'd still have 61 records if you'd taken away all the record breaking empty net goals, and allowed him to break the record (or get the milestone) with his next non-empty net goal. That's how much he smashed each and every record. He scored his 500th goal by the time he was 25 - which is absurd. It was in his 575th game or somthing ridiculous like that - the fastest ever. It only took him 424 games to reach a 1000 points - just over 5 seasons! His 92 goals smashed the previous record which was 76. His 215 points were 63 more than anyone else had ever done at the time. Talk about smashing records. Let's not even talk about his 163 assists in a season. He scored over 2 assists per game for an entire season, and still scored over 50 goals! That's just freakish. The next guy down (Bobby Orr) had 102 assists. Wow. He has over a 1000 points more than anyone else, and more assists than anyone else has points, while also having the most goals. Anyway, I obviously digress...
