As my blogging buddy Dennis Kane had assured me in the off season while I was crying my eyes out over Koivu's departure, I'm starting to warm to the new guys. The Priceberg has moved to the top of my list, Moen and Gionta are close seconds. BGL is starting to redeem himself and making his presence known, keeping the pesky critters at bay. Kudos to the defence for hanging in there and now we might have lost O'Byrne, Bob will have to do something sooner than later.
My biggest concern actually came after the game, HNIC cut to a shot of my boy Shelly arriving for the Edmonton/Calgary match. He was wearing a purple velvet jacket and a purple tie. I wonder if he has a pair of furry dice hanging from his rear view mirror to complete the look.
Up next is Calgary, hope our boys have packed extra horseshoes.
