That and more topics...
Setting the mood for Hockey Day in Canada.
from Jeff Z. Klein of the New York Times,
Thousands of miles wide, Canada is girded by a narrow belt of population stretched thin across its vast landscape. Hockey is the common experience shared in every large city and small town along the way.
Bryan Trottier grew up playing hockey in one of those towns, Val Marie, Saskatchewan. He went on to win six Stanley Cups, but on Thursday night he was in another small Canadian town, stepping to a microphone with a guitar.
“It’s great fun to be part of a super evening of great music, super songwriters and terrific performers, and you folks add to our enjoyment,” Trottier told the audience of about 600 at the community theater here.
Then he started strumming, the band joined in, and the whole audience clapped along to Buck Owens’s “Act Naturally.”
Trottier was in Lloydminster, an oil-patch town of 27,000 straddling the Alberta-Saskatchewan border, as a hockey player and a country singer, participating in Hockey Day in Canada festivities.
the city of Lloydminster, AB/SK (the city is on the border of both provinces) will be hosting HDIC tomorrrow.
Here is a preview from CBC (make sure to scroll to the 2:40 mark to see the very unique Cherry and MacLean hockey sweaters),
Below, another video on HDIC,
Don Cherry and Ron MacLean after the 1st period of the late HNIC game touch on numerous topics including earlier games from last night.
I am beginning to enjoy these segments more than Coach's Corner.
Don Cherry and Ron MacLean talked about Martin St. Louis not making Team Canada. Cherry suggested the one person who should have been named was Seabrook.
They also talked about the Leafs and a Tom Wilson fight and then some more fight talk.
Then a few more topics...
Some of the topics discussed on the Hotstove were- Randy Carlyle was the first topic and the word is he is not in any trouble. The GM meetings are coming up in March and the shootout will be brought up. Switching ends in OT may be an option and it looks as if hybrid icing will not change.
GM Tim Murray in Buffalo was brought up but he will not be taken advantage of regarding trades but every player is available for the right price. Also a debate on what to do with Mikhail Grigorenko.
A few other topics were discussed too and I will post a video when available.
added 7:36pm, video now added...
Don Cherry and Ron MacLean discussed the two early HNIC games, the Team Canada WJC loss, the Bobby Ryan/Team USA debate, including calling the embedded writer(s) a rat and a few other topics.
Worth a watch...
