Hockey. A day away. Rangers. Two days awayI can’t believe it. I’m ready. Let’s get into our last Thoughts and Musings of the offseason.
-I can’t remember the last season I was this excited for. Maybe the one after the lockout. But, I’m so excited. I can barely contain it.
-Even though he’s hurt, I will be rocking my Drury jersey all day long.
-Speaking of Drury, when he comes back, who goes? I think it depends on how well (or how awful) Christensen is. If he sucks, he’s out. If not, then I don’t know. I would say Boogey, but then who’s the enforcer? Stepan could be a candidate, but if he plays well…well, you get the point. Decisions, decisions.
-Here’s how I would construct opening night lines (and I think my predictions are going to be pretty similar to what actually happens)
-Goal predictions for each guy:
I would be very happy with that.
Eminger is the 7th guy.
-I wouldn’t be opposed to Sheldon Souray. I mean, he’s got a rocket of a shot. And he’s physical. I as a 3rd pair defenseman, for $2.5 million, I’d be okay.
-Annoyance interlude: My iPod headphones continue to get tangled. And it takes forever to get them undone. And it annoys the hell out of me. Cause I need my headphones to do any sort of work. Otherwise I get off task. I think with my birthday coming up in March, I’ll get one of those Bose headphones or something. Actually, one of you could get it for me.
-Here are some off the cuff predictions
-MZA will be the first callup
-I think Hank could have a Vezina type year. He always has a Vezina type year. But this year he could win it.
-Staal will get Norris votes
-Stepan will contend for the Calder
-Avery will continue to be the league’s most hated player
-The Rangers will finish 5th in the Eastern Conference
-They will make the 2nd round of the playoffs
