One down, four to go. We play you Saturday and then again April 3. My son is 8 and he knows his hockey.
He also knows a real NHL player from a figure skater.(Alfredsson?
) The sad fact is in the NHL palyoffs, defense wins, and that starts with the goalie. Should Belfour's back stay healthy, he's better than Lalime. (doesn't that mean lemon in French?
Maybe it's lime, but close enough.) The only thing scaring me right now, and it has nothing to do with the opposition, is the Leafs ability to produce on the power play, and specialty units can mean the difference between winning and loosing.
We've played the Sens four time so far and won three! And who can forget that four goal deficit we erased in the third period on Feb. 4 to win 5-4.
At any rate, by the time the playoffs roll around, Alfredsson's hair will be soooo long that he won't be able to see!
Just over a week to go. I can't wait!! Just a quick, off topic question, I was listening to The Fan 590 this morning and they had a guest on who thinks teams should be limited to three lines and the schedule should be cut back to 70 games. He felt this would get rid of the goons on the team, ie. Oliwa of the Flames who summer trains by going to a boxing gym, and this would greatly improve the quality of the games. It would also rid teams of these $1-2 million players who only see 5-6 mins. of ice time saving them $$. I think it's a wonderful idea. I find that a lot of games get bogged down by these fourth liners who should be in the AHL. Any thoughts?
No one said life would be easy, just worth it.
