Wacky Wednesday

The Pirates hot start is seemingly over, as they continue to struggle to win consistently. Coming off a 4-2 loss to the Worcester Sharks, they are now 14-8.  One of the laziest players to every play in the NHL scored a goal for the Sharks that night, Cheechoo! I don’t see the Pirates improving until the Sabres start to get healthier, as we are poaching all their players. Gerbe should be sent back, he sadly doesn’t have a spot up here with the big club at this point. He could however be used as trade bait at some point.  Adam still has some growing to do as well before he will stick. Ennis however has been magnificent all season.

The Sabres meanwhile had a 2 game shutout streak ended by the Bruins yesterday as they lost in overtime on a terrible tip by Mark “I’m elderly,” Recchi.  Vanek’s season meanwhile is getting better by the game, and Leopold is third on our team in scoring! Who a thought!  Despite Millers winning percentage, his numbers are still pretty good, which is a good sign, and primarily due to the shutouts. Let’s hope he can stay healthy. Who else is glad Rivet has been sitting on the sidelines in recent games? I know I have, the man needs to get of town, sell his house and retire somewhere down south, and never step foot on an ice surface again. Luke Adam got his first goal as a Sabre, and it took him 8 games, Gerbe however has yet to score this season for us, and he’s played 18. Although he has played with mediocre players, like Grier, and Niedermayer.

Quick hits…

MacArthur leads the Leafs in points.

Thomas is 36 and playing like he’s 25.

Where has Ovechkin been this season?

William Guerin has retired!

Hossa was placed on IR.
