December Observations

from Rich Sadowski of the Rocky Mountain News,

A few observations now that most NHL teams have reached the one-third mark of the 2007-08 season:

* Henrik Zetterberg continues to pile up points, as do the Red Wings, making him the early favorite to win the Hart Trophy as Most Valuable Player. Zetterberg would join Peter Forsberg, who won the award with the Avalanche in 2003, as the only Swedish-born players to be so honored.

* While Ryan Smyth has been everything the Avalanche could have hoped for after signing him as a free agent, Scott Hannan hasn’t yet lived up to expectations. Maybe it’s more difficult for a defenseman to adjust to new surroundings, but Hannan is a quality player and he shouldn’t be lugging around a plus/minus rating that looks more like Tiger Woods’ golf score after a couple of rounds.

much more...
