Lock for Rookie of the Year

My Lock for Rookie of the Year

 

Elias Pettersson has taken the NHL by storm. Three goals and two assists in his first two games in the NHL. Canucks fans haven’t had a dynamic player like this since Pavel Bure dawned the skate logo. Still some work ahead of them in this rebuild. But, with the likes of Pettersson, Brock Boeser, Quintin Hughes,  Bo Horvat, and Thatcher Demko in the organization the light is at the end of the tunnel for a franchise who was one win away from the Stanley Cup in 2011. 

 

Surprising Habs

 

I know it is only two weeks into the season for the Montreal Canadiens… that being said they took the Toronto Maple Leafs into overtime… (and deserved to win too). Saturday night they handled the Pittsburgh Penguins with ease in a dominating 5-1 win. They look a lot faster this year with some injected youth (Kotkaniemi, Armia, Domi,). Carey Price has looked like vintage Carey Price early in this season and that is great news for Habs fans. Can they keep this up? Probably not. But at the end of the day the Canadiens will go as far as Price takes them. 

 

Marchand the Rat

 

The RAT was back at it again. This time I don’t have a problem with what Brad Marchand did. In a 6-0 game against the Washington Capitals, and the Boston Bruins. Lars Eller skated by the Bruins bench and taunted the team during a fly by on the 7thgoal. The next shift Brad Marchand took matters into his own hands and went after Eller and got some punches in. Could he have handled it in a different way? 100%. But… growing up you are taught to never show up the opposing team doesn’t matter what the score is. After this incident Lars Eller for sure will think twice before taunting the bench.

 

Toews is Back

 

Jonathan Toews is RED HOT to start the season 5 goals, 1 assist in 3 games to start the season. Last year he scored a respectable 20 goals (his lowest total in his career). Toews returning to high 60- mid 70-point total this year would go a long way for a Black Hawks team. The Hawks are off to a surprising 2-0-1 start to the season. Also getting Corey Crawford back soon. Many have them in the basement of the powerful Central division. Including myself.

 

Tom Wilson enough said…

 

Tom Wilson was suspended 20 games by the NHL earlier this week. This this the 4thtime Wilson has been disciplined. So as a repeat offended I have no problem with a 20 gamer. Obviously, he hasn’t learned his lesson. With the suspension Wilson will forfeit over a million dollars in salary. He has appealed the suspension. What are your guys’ thoughts on the hit? Yes, Oskar Sundqvist shouldn’t have cut into the middle…. but Wilson didn’t need to drill him in the head. I’m glad the NHL finally sent a message to the rest of the teams that stuff like this is going to warrant a lengthy suspension.
