Say what you will about Chris Pronger, but in terms of being a SuperPest, Sean Avery ain’t got nuthin’ on the big Kraut.
When was the last time you saw a player’s name so many times in the course of a week or heard them mentioned on just about every sports show around?
Of course, the Blackhawks and especially Ben Eager got the last laugh yesterday. Did you see the official steering Benny away from the Flyers bench after he snagged the puck at the end of the game?
I have only one thing to say about that…
In other news, Scott Niedermayer is blogging for the Los Angeles Times (why not the OC Register? Beats the heck out of me) and you can read his thoughts about the run up to the Cup here or hear him on NHL Live! Here.
In terms of whether or not he and/or Selanne will return is still up in the air. Yes, all of us Ducks fans are just about ready to rip our hair out right now!
Yesterday marks the 2007 Stanley Cup anniversary for the Ducks and a huge fan posted this fantastic homage that features an awesome Rob Niedermayer elbow to the skull of the Canucks Jannik Hansen at about 1:10 into the vid. Oh, and even more amusing is Beauchie’s huge hit on the Red Wings Kirk Maltby that sent the guy arse over teakettle into the Ducks bench. Pity is though, the video doesn’t show the Ducks giggling and clearly not helping the guy at all. Time on that one is 1:25. Oh man, there are some sweet shots in this vid. The Zetterberg sandwich. Luongo face down on the ice. The Ducks taking the Sens apart 6 to 2. The Jiggy Joy! Aw, heck just watch the darn thing!
