Really great story about joe

Yep, great story.

Joe Sakic was really the one Av I couldn't dislike. Maybe because by the time I should have disliked him, I'd seen him play enough (on really s***ty Quebec teams) that I'd really respected his game. He was awesome, he was classy, and he really seemed like an all-around good guy. He had that god damned wrist shot and, like Stevie Y, he lead by example. He was the total package -- absolutely a guy you'd want on your team.

Thanks for the memories Joe.

I think the same of Bylsma, very classy guy.


Yeah, I've really grown to like Bylsma. Obviously, I prefer his temperament and demeanor to Therrien's, by a long shot. Is it too late to vote for him as coach of the year? The turn around the Pens had after naming him coach is amazing. Going from 10th in the East to game 7 of the finals in just a few months is pretty damned impressive.

In Topic: Should Draper be inserted into the lineup?

Drapes in for Leino for the face-offs. Leino has played pretty well, but Drapes is a great face-off guy and that's big on the road.
