Conan, Crosby, Stat-lines and Some LinksShareThis
New Puck Daddy: on Kovalchuk’s struggles, and what he needs to do to fix them
Yesterday’s USA Today: On taking a shootout shot, player’s perspective
Anyone have any reviews of the new “Conan” for us?
I used to be a loyal fan, and DVR’ed it every night even when he was in his brief primetime role. For some reason, I haven’t gotten around to doing the same for the TBS version of the show. Is it any good?
(By the way, I love Fallon. That show is awesome.)
Okay, the Crosby slewfoot:
First off, there’s allowed to be grey area on stuff like this, he doesn’t have to be Stalin or Mother Theresa.
He certainly didn’t execute a classic slewy there. It’s sort of a halfway, non-commital one.
Secondly, it’s a non-issue. For all the abuse that guy takes, I’ll allow him the occasional cheap shot. If I were focused on night-in night-out like it’s the playoffs, and guys went out of their way to get shots in on me, I’d have slew-footed somebody’s head through the ice years ago.
Interesting argument that one of the RLD radio show hosts made (tongue in cheek): it was a play of the year candidate. It was an incredibly difficult play, to be skating at that speed in open ice, complete a slew-foot, and draw a penalty. Point Sidney.
Random thought: Eric Staal is having a heckuva year, huh? The top of the NHL leaderboard for points is classic – stars are having star-like years.
I still think the most interesting stat-lines of the year to date are:
2 goals, 25 assists, 27 points. Wow.
9 goals, 16 assists, 25 points. His career high is like, 36 or something, and he’s playing defense. He also leads the NHL w/5 game winners.
Am I missing anyone?
