Saw the interview with PK live and almost pissed myself laughing so hard. I think even the interviewer had trouble not laughing at how hard PK was trying to not be himself.

Wanted to ask about your comment on Red Fisher covering his 6000th game. That is a remarkable number but I can't figure it out... Help me out - 51 seasons at 80 regular season games (average because it was less than 84 for a long time) and 5 pre-seaon games (did they have them 40 years ago?) and 15 post season game (guessing here because some years they didn't play any while others they played 20+). So 51x(80+5+15) = 5100. Amazing to think of 6000 games, can't imagine anyone else ever coming close to that.
I have read every word you've written since the inception of HIO as well as most of Red's columns for the past 20 years. You do an excellent job and provide a nice complement and viewpoint to the games please keep up the great posts.

It is really disheartening to see a team with so much talent put in so little effort. In the past when there was a lack of effort it was frustrating as a fan but not as much because the talent level and expectations were lower. I wonder how much the pending UFA status of so many players on the team is creating a problem. You would think this to be counter-intuitive since they should want to play hard for the best results but the best team results aren't always "in line" with the best individual results.

So if Jaro gets a shutout does that a controversy ignite???

Nice summary Chris. I follow the Habs very closely but I must have missed the reason that Jan Bulis was allowed to leave. I really liked this guy, he played like Plekanec only a little grittier and with a little less skill. I recall hearing something about Gainey not liking him. Was the truth about his departure ever revealed? Or was it simply a case of the Habs having too many similar players in the system that could fill the role for less money?

Check that...Leafs lost in Pittsburgh. Can't keep track of home vs away jerseys anymore.
