So... let's pretend there was no game yesterday. However, for some reason, there were warmups. In which every player wore a #9 Howe jersey. It must have been part of Great Gordie's birthday celebration, because there certainly wasn't a 7-1 loss yesterday...
Lashoff is wondering if Kronners will ever let him in on the joke:
While Filppula wonders if he left the toaster oven on.
Cory and Abby show us their Very Serious Faces:
And Pavel uses his telepathic powers to reach through time and space to turn off Val's toaster oven.
Here's a good example of how TRIPPY it was to see everyone wearing a Howe jersey.
I spoke with Hockeytown0001 and I am filling in for his usual fantastic GDT work for tonights game as he is helping with his Mom's father who could pass any day now. Best wishes to him and his family. I hope he's back posting his work soon.
Lilja is still a perfectly good lower pair dude that can block shots and add a bit of snarl.
He would be a nice #5. His beard would be a good #6.
I'd take him for a good spare part for when injuries strike. The problem is fitting him into a 23-man roster. Who do you get rid of out of our other 7? I'd lean towards having him over Kindl, but I'm not quite ready to get rid of a young guy.
