I have not had the Harvey's deep fried pickles, but I have had deep fried pickles ... And they were awesome.

Just wondering ... Who wore number 32 for the Lakers?

Analytics also fail to take into account character and chemistry ... huge factors in the success a D pairing ... a forward line ... and also a the team as a whole. Analytics will look at Saturday's box score and see Nathan Beaulieu with a fighting major. Non-analytics will see much more in Beaulieu ... a team guy, an unselfish player, a guy willing to answer the bell against a bigger opponent in order to defend a teammate. That's the guy I want on my team!

My Grandpa was a huge Jean Beliveau fan. 'Always a gentleman' he used to say. This is how many of us become fans of one team or another ... Through our parents or others with influence. I became a Habs fan with a little guidance from my Grandpa, even though it was easy to love the team I grew up with in the 70s led by Lafleur and Robinson and many other great players. But number 4 always remained special. It always will. I had the great privilege to meet Jean Beliveau about 10 years ago. My buddy and I used to record a radio feature on Team 990 called Habtalk. Jean Beliveau recorded with us one day, and he had a terrific sense of humor. Before he left, we asked, 'Jean ... Why do they only drink from glasses in Toronto?' and without missing a beat he smiled and said, 'Because all the cups are in Montreal!' He knew that old joke well. Jean Beliveau epitomized the CH. Always classy. Always dignified. Always a winner. He was loyal to the end to both his family and team. The world is a sadder place without him, and I've got a very heavy heart tonight.

Talent on a team is one thing. But chemistry is arguably more important. And the team chemistry starts at the top with GM Bergevin. He has assembled a mix of young and veteran players, all of whom seem to want to play/win for each other.

The question is ... How many more garbage periods of hockey do they have to play before something changes?

DD plays 1st line centre. Big minutes. Crucial situations. The expectaion from this position has to be offence/goals. But that's not what's happening on the 1st line. Or the PP. My point is I think it's time to give someone else a chance. It's time to pass the torch ... to somebody bigger, faster, and more talented.

Trying Plekanec or Galchenyuck as 1st line center would never work. In fact, that idea is so ludicrous I don't know why I even wrote that.
