Sunday Observations

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

• Good move by the NHL, placing players’ numbers on the front of their helmets. Makes for far easier photo IDs, and when they look in the mirror, they are better able to recognize themselves.

• Entering last night’s games, the old-and-experienced trio of Teemu Selanne (Anaheim), Jaromir Jagr (Philadelphia), and Ryan Smyth (Edmonton) all had at least five goals apiece and had piled up a cumulative 38 points. Not bad for a bunch of AARPers with an average age of 38-plus.

• For my $25 in annual dues, I’d like the Professional Hockey Writers Association to obtain a temporary restraining order that prevents the NHL from realigning conferences and divisions until one of the hobbled US-based franchises is dragged over the border and replanted in Quebec City.

much more hockey talk…
