Late Evening Line

“Some guys are more worried about their Vegas trip at the end of the season than playing the games, than playing every minute of the games. Quite frankly, I don’t care about your Vegas trip right now.”

- Jean-Sebastien Giguere, goaltender for the Colorado Avalanche after losing to Calgary 3-1 tonight.  Much more from Giguere by Adrian Dater of All Things Avs.

Jiggy provides an amazing look into the Av locker room!
It reminds me of Dryden’s book “The Game”.

Rot this deep is caused by bad ownership & bad management. 
Lacroix has been pathetic since the day he was hired as GM.

In the comment section, several of the fans have it figured out.

The Red Wings may be rebuilding, and struggling for wins, but as Babcock said, he is proud of them for fighting for every foot of the ice.  Wings fans complain about not winning, but the heart & soul of a good team are there.

From my perspective, a good fan can enjoy well-played hockey, win or lose.

cool hmm

You must click on the link to the article.

It has a picture of a young J-S Giguere and Patrick Roy standing next to each other in full goalie gear - and Giguere (at that young age) has bigger equipment than Roy!

I hope you’re not serious. Lacroix was an incredible GM. The team may have taken a step back toward the end of his tenure, but when the downward spiral really began was when he stepped down at GM and remained only as President and he seemed to stop having any influence.

My mistake. 
You are right. 
Sherman is the G.M. disaster, along with Stan Kroenke, the owner who pays him.
