I saw this on the internet today, and he is explaining how history will tell us who will win the Stanley Cup this year. Granted its only less than halfway through the season, but this is an interesting read and this guy really has his facts down. Article Link
The usual hot suspects on the Canucks are hot - you know who they are. Others include Jannik Hansen, Mason Raymond, Chris Higgins, Cody Hodgson and Michael Bublé.
Anyway, here is my "game of the week" video! Let me know if you like it! Also, I need song recommendations for next weeks video. If you know a song that would fit good in on a video somewhat like this, please let me know. Thanks!
I found this on Youtube today, it's a 25 minute long documentary on the Detroit Red Wings and Grand Rapids Griffins during training camp this year. Pretty cool look into training camp, especially for those of us who didn't make the trip up to Traverse City this year.
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- It appears that defenseman Brendan Smith will make his NHL debut for the Detroit Red Wings Thursday against the San Jose Sharks at HP Pavilion (10:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net Detroit).
Smith practiced like he was going to play -- paired with Niklas Kronwall at even strength and with Nicklas Lidstrom at the point on the first power-play unit. Smith spoke after practice like he was going to play.
But coach Mike Babcock was coy about it, somewhat.
“I'll decide in the morning,'' Babcock said.
Smith finished serving his five-game NHL suspension on Tuesday.
“We think he's an NHL player. He's got to play, we got to find out. There's no better place than here,'' Babcock said. "It's always a good building to play in. They're a good team. You play against real good players.
"We had him with Kronwall today, so that means he'd be in a match-up either with (Joe) Thornton and (Patrick) Marleau, if it's (like) the last game or Thornton and (Logan) Couture. Those are six real good forwards you'll be playing against, so good for him.''
Smith likely would replace Mike Commodore in the lineup.
The Red Wings, not surprisingly, worked extensively on the power play during practice, after going 0 for 6, failing to score in 15 minutes of time on the man-advantage, in Tuesday's 2-1 loss at St. Louis.
