Andrew Peters is the Worst Toughguy in the NHL


Example # 1:

Now I do not blame Peters for being absolutely terrified of George Laraque. George Laraque is on my top 10 list of scary guys not to be caught in a room alone with…along with Jason Forhees, Mike Myers, and Prince.

But that is me and I am not being paid the NHL minimum of how many hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight once a game. Peters is.

Did Peters really have to make it that obvious that he was scared? He was dancing like a little girl the whole time and then grabbed on for dear life and was scared of taking any shots from Laraque.

Note to Peters: That is your job to fight. You are useless on the ice besides that so you might as well make use of your 1:43 of ice time and at least try to fight. Take a few shots to the face if necessary.

Example 2:

Another pathetic makeout session by Peters. He was grabbing Godard’s jersey the whole time because Peters is scared of taking a punch in the face.

I understand you have to be defensive, but come on. Take a punch and then throw the knockout punch in return.

Do something beneficial Peters!



The San Jose Sharks are 17-0-2 at Home


The San Jose Shark survived to beat the New York Rangers 3-2. With this win the Sharks continue their undefeated streak at home, at least within regulation. The Sharks are 17-0-2 now.

This is from Yahoo Sports!:

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP)—Early in the third period, coach Todd McLellan could tell his San Jose Sharks’ recent travels had left their tanks dry.

After racking up more than 5,000 air miles and losing two tough games in the last week, the overall NHL leaders were clinging to a one-goal lead on the surging New York Rangers, who always seemed to be an instant shy of tying it.

Yet Evgeni Nabokov wouldn’t allow his sagging teammates to fold, making 17 of his 32 saves in the frantic third period of the Sharks’ 3-2 victory Saturday night.

“We were a pretty determined team, and I say that including the last 15 or 18 minutes there when we had nothing left,” McLellan said. “We found a way, and that’s the sign of a good team, so I’ll take that.”

Teemu Selanne – out 4-6 Weeks


teemu selanne anaheim ducks 300x199 Teemu Selanne   out 4 6 Weeks

Teemu Selanne

Teemu Selanne cut himself in the left leg by his right skate. Just typing that makes me quiver.  He did this in early during the Edmonton game on 12-18-08. Teemu is out 4-6 weeks because of the laceration.

Good ol’ Selanne was my sleeper pick in every fantasy league I was in. I was able to pick him up around the tenth round. He was also leading the league with 14 Powerplay goals.

This is from the Anaheim Ducks:

In response to the injury to winger Teemu Selanne in the opening minutes of Friday night’s 3-2 shootout win at Edmonton, the Ducks have recalled center Andrew Ebbett from the Iowa Chops, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Selanne suffered a laceration on his lower left thigh when his own right skate sliced his left leg during a collision along the boards with Oilers defenseman Denis Grebeshkov.

“I knew right away that I got cut,” said Selanne, who left the locker room on crutches. “It was scary how much blood was coming out. It was all over. You couldn’t even stop it.”



“No goal” controversy in Tampa Bay


This is the controversial “No Goal” that happened last night when the Colorado Avalanche visited the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Mike Smith apparently made a blocker save on Milan Hejduk, but “threw” or “lost” his stick while doing so. This resulted in the referees making the decision to call the play a goal because of Mike Smith “throwing” his stick. This call also gave the Colorado Avalanche the shootout victory.

I think this is total BS. Mike Smith obviously accidentally lost his stick while making the save and it was only after the save in which his stick was released.
