I wrote this last night and for some reason, probably because I’m losing my mind, I didn’t post it. So it’s a little late.
The Canadiens have sent a 2013 fifth-round draft pick to the L.A. Kings in exchange for 28-year old defenceman Davis Drewiske, and I know so little about this guy, I’m not even sure the picture of him here is actually him.
Marc Bergevin and the gang have been looking for a veteran defenceman to add depth to the blueline corp. Someone who might be a good reliable team player, which is all-important. Someone who fits in nicely and doesn’t cost much. So they got Drewiske, whom I’ve never heard of, but who seems to be a tough-yet-likeable fellow who may or may not play a lot for the team this year. I have no idea.
On paper this isn’t Bobby Orr. Last year with the Kings, he played in just nine games and none in the Kings’ Cup run, and apparently he was a healthy scratch lately with the Kings. But if Marc Bergevin feels good about this, then so do I. And really, I was never all that excited about the prospects of well-known players such as Jaromir Jagr and Ryane Clowe coming to Montreal.
So getting Drewiske is fine with me. I’m not whooping and hollering, but I’m fine. And in looking at him, I see that he’s got good hair.
It’s late at night, time to rest my back, and maybe wonder if Bergevin does anything else in the hours coming up. I wouldn’t be disappointed if all stayed quiet on the Habs front. The team has a good thing going now, the chemistry seems right, and we don’t want anything or anybody to screw with that. Maybe that’s why I didn’t want Jagr.
Whether or not the Habs are tough enough for the heavy going remains to be seen, and I wouldn’t mind seeing some tweaking in this area. It’s all in the capable hands of Marc Bergevin.
I don’t know of a lot of people with the first name Davis. Pro golfer Davis Love 111 was the only one until Davis Drewishe came on the radar. According to one site, Davis is the 395th most popular name in the United States. One in 2059 men are named Davis.
Dennis is the 72nd most popular name in the U.S. (1 in 300).
