• Manny Legace was fingered in Detroit for the Red Wings’ playoff failures. Whether the acquisitions were right or wrong, Legace is history in the Motor City. Yet, we still believe in Manny and apparently, so does John Davidson. The Blues’ decision to sign ML as their top banana in goal was a wise one. It also sets up a neat goalie-counterpoint between Dom Hasek and Legace. Who’s going to emerge with a better year? We’re putting our money on Legace – and Chris Osgood. • Give Olli Jokinen credit; he not only plays like a captain he talks like one too. “I believe this team will be in the playoffs,” says the Panthers leader. “This is the strongest team in South Florida since the Panthers went to the Finals.” Should we interpret that as a slap at Roberto Luongo? Or, maybe Olli likes the Alex Auld-Ed Belfour combo better than anything he’s had before.much more...
