Day 1 thoughts/Rawk the Puck East Voting


First off, remember you can still vote on the Western Rawk the Puck matchups. Voting is open till whenever I cut it off over the weekend. Eastern matchups are below…

As for last night’s games, here’s some random thoughts:

  • As crappy as it was to lose Jonathan Cheechoo (still no word on the MRI as of 12:30 PST), I’m breathing a sigh of relief that it wasn’t Patrick Marleau or Joe Thornton. The Sharks have so much depth on the wing that any number of players can help fill the gap for the time being. Let’s just hope that it looked worse than it actually is.
  • That darned Vancouver goalie proved once again that he is Luon-God. Mike Keenan claims that he couldn’t have signed him no matter what, and there are rumors that he clashed with Jacque Martin, but seriously, how bad does that deal look now?
  • How fired up were the Senators last night? When Mike Comrie of all people starts flying with the hits, you know they’re jacked up. Still, I’m guessing the young Penguins will learn their lessons pretty fast and be much better for game 2.
  • Here’s a suggestion to anyone using Tivo — remember always to buffer your recording in case of overtime and make sure that you’ve got enough disk space so that your monster 6 hour recording doesn’t get deleted right away for other scheduled programs. Otherwise, you’ll feel dumb like me.
