Corsi Number Gets No Love

from Bruce Dowbiggin at the Globe and Mail, You have to admire Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night In Canada. The man tries. Like Galileo attempting to get the Catholic Church onside, Friedman is singlehandedly trying to drag HNIC’s high priests into a hockey renaissance.

Right now, he will only consider an elite group of teams with high Stanley Cup aspirations. The Flames would like him to expand that list because it increases their chances of a better return. Would St. Louis, for example, want in on this possibility? But...

Ducks vs. Canucks: Not exactly home cooking was it?

Game On Well that was underwhelming. After all the hype and build up, the Canucks first game of the year was absolutely the worst case scenario. It gets better (I hope). Here we go with the love ‘em & hate ‘em! Love ‘Em 1. Rick Ball No Mark Lee. No Kevin Weekes. Even if Kelly Hrudey wasn’t the best in the booth, Rick Ball was more than adequate.
