A Quick Morning Skate

Tomorrow I will be attending the Canadiens and Bruins game in Boston, very excited for that. Hoping Milan Lucic is back in the lineup to see another fight vs. Komisarek. As mentioned in previous blogs, he made the all star team over many guys with more points and simply more skill. Jack Edwards should have some good words throughout that game, so look here after for some youtube bits of him.

Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks is one rookie to look out for this season. I had the privilage of watching him parts of the past three season in Portland of the AHL, he has some of the better hands I have seen come through the league. Many doubted him early on, especially because he was the pick right after Crosby in the 2005 draft. Now, people are starting to see what the GM at the time, Al Coates saw. It could be said ex-GM, and now Toronto's GM Brian Burke did not want him in Anaheim, as he was the subject of several trade rumors. But with Burke gone, Ryan is finally getting his chance on the West Coast, and he has paid his dues in the minors, he deserves this.

Check back on in tomorrow for a recap of the Canadiens-Bruins experience and a look into my personal opinions of where I think the next Winter Classic should be held. I may also post some ideas the NHL should do to market the NHL better. I feel as if they are doing a better job post-lockout era, but things still need to change. Buotte may post before I do, so look out for that blog as well. Good day folks.
