If after all this guy has done, if you still don't think he's an elite defenseman worthy of a Norris nomination, I'm sorry to inform you that you very well may be a racist. This guy skipped training camp, and went to live with his parents. He literally woke up off his parent's couch, tied his skates and DOMINATED the NHL. Who the hell does that? 28 points in 29 games. Take a guess at who's got 27 points. Ilya Fucking Kovalchuck, that's who. Mr. $100M. So if leading the league in scoring and being an electrifying player is not enough to be nominated for this trophy, then change its name to the Yandle trophy. Given to a pretty good defenseman that nobody cares about. And enough with the bullshit that he doesn't play enough minutes. He's piling up all these points playing 3-4 minutes less than Suter. How does that not make it even more impressive? And he's doing it in the most competitive division in the league. Plus, he hits like a motherfucker while getting booed in every building outside the 514. Give him the fucking trophy now you bastards.
And what can I say about Mr. Gallagher. Everyone knows how I feel about him and his testicles. They grew another couple of pounds yesterday with another solid effort. I might as well stop calling his games a solid effort. It's not an effort. It's Gally playing hockey. It's the only way he knows how. He too is now in the conversation for a major award. Nipping at the heels of Huberdeau for the league lead in rookie scoring. The only difference is he plays 3.5 minutes less per game and happens to be a plus player. He also does all this with 2 grapefruits in his jock. Incredibly uncomfortable.
So the Habs fly to Philly later today to take on the Flyers. They are still hanging around the playoff picture so they'll be ready to go. No doubt the Habs will be too. Except Kaberle.
TripleLowFive to all and to all a good night.
