Petshark: Talking Stick

Logan Couture was picked last in the NHL All Star Draft. Antero Niittymaki wasn’t picked off waivers at all. Couture will be remembered for being picked last, he got a car and donations to his favorite hockey charities and it’s possible he will get a superincredible season in 2012-13. That last one isn’t guaranteed because the sample size is too small to call it a pattern.
But all’s well that ends well and the award for best sportsman on Twitter goes to Logan Couture (@Logancouture), the San Jose Shark who went last in the draft. -Kevin McGran
@Logancouture: “Is it me or is it getting hotter back here after every pick?”
@Logancouture: “Who went last? I missed the end of the draft?”
@Logancouture: “First order of business. Pimping that Honda out”
Apparently the car will go to Logan’s brother. Couture did handle himself well. Several players were less composed than he was during the proceedings. Carey Price was so flustered by not realizing he had been called that he dissed his All Star Captain on his way to the holding box.
When you know someone has been hurt, you watch them differently than you would watch someone you assume to be healthy. Any little misstep will be cause for doubt. Considering the gravity of the injury sustained by Alex Stalock last season, I think it’s nothing short of a miracle that I only noticed one misstep this morning. He wore lower pads only. I’m no expert and I don’t know how his leg feels but it looked like both legs were doing what he told them to. Between exercises, he tossed the puck around, hitting the wall, and shooting at both nets. Part of me thought “Dude! Don’t even play around with putting the puck in your own net!” But having fun is good for healing, so he should do whatever amuses him for now.
