Who’s Good

from the Toronto Star,
But hockey has its problems. The NHL is cursed with a disturbing lack of continuity. The simplest question — "Who's good?" — is tough to answer. The once-venerable big-market teams have been vulnerable (witness the first-round flameouts of favoured Detroit and Dallas). Two out of three Hart Trophy nominees, New York Rangers' Jaromir Jagr and Calgary's Mikka Kiprusoff, went out in the first round while the third, San Jose's Joe Thornton, is a game away from being bounced by the Edmonton Oilers. There are no Stars, and no transcendent stars. The NBA has seen James emerge as the greatest athlete of his generation and Dwyane Wade produce majesty and Bryant and Nash lead amazing charges. The NHL has the usual goaltenders of the moment.
