I liked it how they all had roles: Mickey was the old-timer with stories, Larry was the enthusiastic analyst who had a really good eye for the game and often fumbled on words, and Ken was the one who kept his feet on the ground and the whole thing together.
Why does the visor seem to be such a symbol of freedom for many here? Hockey is a game that already is full of rules of what to do and what equipment to use. Now all of a sudden they stop being grown men if the use of a visor isn't their decision anymore.
With all the neanderthal macho stuff that's involved in hockey shouldn't the debate be about cups being mandatory?

I never saw Hudler being lazy. He was small and slow but still provided 20 goals and 50 points. To me that's very good secondary scoring. He knew he was going to get more money elsewhere and money's something many people in the world like so who can blame him. Hudler's efforts in 2nd and 3rd lines were very important during the fine seasons of 07-08 and 08-09. I wish people would give him more respect for that. But always the hooker and Russia things. It's like all the other hockey playesr were eunuchs who've promised poverty.
I also think it's too early to tell what'll become of Tatar and Nyquist. I wish Nyquist would get stronger. Then we'd probably see him up too perhaps permanently.
