The mystery linemate, i.e. Valeri Kamensky, was back again tonight, and despite setting me up roughly 37 times in front of the net, I had only marginal success to speak of. Between me and another one of his old linemates, Mark Messier, I’m pretty sure I know which one he prefers.
That said, Messier’s blog? Pure drivel.
Of course, the good thing about Kamensky is he doesn’t say much. Because if he did, it would go something like this: “How in the world did you not score there?”
Not sure I understand why everyone’s down on Matt Cullen. Have you seen the guy skate? On a team otherwise lacking speed, the guy can fly. I’m not saying he hasn’t made some goofy plays, but there’s a lot more to like than not, and he’s one of the few players who can generate something from nothing. Or put it another way: if I can’t play with Kamensky, Cullen sure can.
