Hockey Points On A Saturday Night

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

• The Leafs have to make the playoffs, and not because they necessarily deserve it. You can’t not miss the playoffs in a year in which the entire Eastern Conference has imploded. Missing this season under these circumstances will be far worse than other misses in recent times.

• This changes year to year, but the three best goalies in the NHL right now are 1. Henrik Lundqvist; 2. Marc-Andre Fleury; 3. Miikka Kiprusoff. The best goalie likely to blow up a building: Tim Thomas.

• It appears Philadelphia has broken a mirror: Eight more years of Ilya Bryzgalov in goal.

I am making an over generalization here but Canadians love Obama ...  that is why Thomas was attacked by so many in the Canadian press.

There are a lot crazier goalies out there then Tim Thomas,  Although now retired, Patrick Roy and Ed Belfour come to mind. 

If a Canadian team wins the Stanley Cup do they visit the White House? Or the Canadian Prime Minister?  It’s been so long since a Canadian team won, I can’t remember.
