Yes, we made picks yesterday and no, we didn’t post them. We’re sorry. But just to show our dedication to this, I am revealing to everyone that Marc and I both picked the Habs as our gimmies last night. The Habs lost. To the Lightning. That’s right, the Lightning.
Last night, I went 5-3 and dropped my first gimmie of the season by picking the Habs over the Bolts. Marc also went 4-4 and also dropped his gimmie by picking the Habs. Rory went 3-5 last night but did not pick the Habs as her gimmie. She went with the Sharks who won.
Oh well. Let’s get to some news:
Petr Prucha’s days in a Rangers uniform may be numbered. Andrew Gross over at Ranger Rants has this:
Renney was asked whether Prucha’s latest three-game stint was enough of a sample for him.
“Yup,” Renney said. “If it wasn’t, he would still be in. He gave me everything he could. It depends also on what you need. Nigel is in primarily because of his ability to score and help create offense. Also, he’s a playmaker. He helps, I think, supplement what we might need offensive by his ability to make plays. It’s where we are and what we need to generate. It’s capitalizing on guys that have been out of the lineup that want badly to get back in and do the right thing as they do that.”
So there you have it. Nigel Dawes: playmaker. Did anyone actually notice Dawes in that game on Wednesday night? I mean besides the time in the third when he blew his golden opportunity.
The Islanders got absolutely destroyed last night by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Enjoy:
Picks coming as soon as I clear all these hats out of the way… (more…)
