Anyone know why Lehtonen is in net for Finland instead of Rask?

I just saw by scrolling down KK. That’s too bad that Rask is sick. I think it significantly hurts Finland’s chances, but we’ll see.

Do Olczyk & McGuire get paid by the word, because they NEVER shut up!

Those two making it impossible to enjoy this game.

You ever notice how Olczyk sounds like he’s erect every time he talks about a Blackhawk player?

I’m watching the game on German TV. I don’t speak German well enough to follow what they’re saying, but they’re better than the NBC gasbags. The BBC commentators are decent, too, when the BBC can be arsed to televise the game.

Have to wait a few years.  grin

Have to wait a few years.

I see it like this: Karlsson and Alfie are buddies.  Karlsson’s contract goes through 2019.  If we can get Alfie to sign through 2021 or so, Karlsson would have no choice but to come to Detroit to play with Alfie.  Alfie would be 49 in 2021, and based on the way he is playing he could keep it up. 

It’s only logical. 

Okay…coming back to reality now….

Are you serious? Like, Alfredsson is saying: “When your contract is up in 5 years and I’m 3 or 4 years into retirement, come play for the Red Wings?!!?!?!”

Please tell me you’re kidding.

Solid win and a fun game to watch, I thought.

Marts played Kronwall and Big-E the most of any of their players, so they’ll need to rest up and get ready for a big game Sunday!

NHL.com immediately did post “How Swede it Is”.  ESPN switched it up and said, “Swede Stuff”.
