Good guy Tom at The Ryan Coke Experience has gotten wind of a rumour you might want to check out on his site – that both the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens are showing interest in Atlanta Thrashers sniper Ilya Kovalchuk, a guy with almost 500 points in almost 500 games in the NHL.
Normally I’d want something like this to happen. A young, fifty goal guy in a Habs uniform. But, like Marian Gaborik, I want neither player. Montreal has the team now to do the deed. There’s just no sense in shaking up the chemistry, regardless of how good these guys are.
And they need to first let me be flag guy at the Bell Centre before bringing in any more players. First things first.
Anyway, have a look at Tom’s site. He, by the way, lives in Ottawa but, unlike many of my own Ottawa friends, has stayed a Habs fan and hasn’t been swept away by Senatormania in the Senatorium.
And because Tom reads my blog, he’s one of the best people in the world.
Another one of the best in the world is Jordy, who let me know today that long-time hockey writer Stan Fischler, based in New York, says Carey Price is a stiff, cocky, mediocre goalie.
Stan Fischer is not one of the best people in the world. In fact, saying something like that makes him a leading candidate for worst person in the world.
Last, but certainly not least, I’m completely open to having people guest blog on this site. (as long as it’s good.) Anytime you want to send in a little story about anything related to hockey – yes, even the Canucks, Leafs, Sean Avery etc., you’re welcome to do this.
Maybe you’ve always wanted to write something. Well, here’s your chance. Just email me with your story at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll check for spelling and you’ll be in print. Please, though, not too many f bombs.
