Hmmmmm.....not bad. Should be good enough to make the playoffs somewhere in the 5-7th seed range in the West.
That's what we all thought about the Rangers having stacked teams. Remember: you can't buy team chemistry.
The hell you can't! The Avs just did it at dirt cheap prices! Of course, they don't really have a goalie, but they've got chemistry!
Sometimes I ask myself why I watch WWE after all the crap it's given me. HLA, necro, HHH, and so on. And then it hits me. That one simple phrase that can be modified and used for anything that gets you down, yet makes you keep coming back.
Every episode has the potential to be the best one ever, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it after sitting through this shit.
I am kinda pissed at Anaheim still for letting PK go and instead they sign Fedorov..
But its a smart move. For the 13-14 mil they would have had to use for Kariya and Oates they have spent 12-13 to get Fedorov and Prospal.. ofcourse this is a slight "decrease" in talent but heh..not that much.
Probably more important for the Anaheim office..they have a new Franchise name. Fedorov is well known and will sell many shirts. Add to that the new found star value of Giguere and they aren't doing that bad in that department.
Fedorov is a good 2-way player too, or at least he can be. Should fit well with their defense first style.
Haz - how can you not have the Bruins in your surprise list. Not making the playoffs last year to first in the conference this year! This is all being done with the same basic team as last year. They added Martin Lapointe and Rob Zamuner.
