Lightning Posts

Tampa Bay is on pace to win all 82 regular season games. While it is possible they will lose a game or two along the way, it is worthwhile to keep everyone up to speed on Florida’s favorite (or second favorite) hockey team. With that in mind, I present a new bi-weekly feature ‘Lightning Posts.’

Avalanche Doubters Beware!

Alot has been said about the Colorado Avalanche that needs to be stopped. Like their goaltending situation, Defense and 3rd/4th Lines

Comrie To Wings?

Spector’s Trade Rumors is reporting that the Oilers GM has had some talks to the Detroit Red Wings and the New York Rangers concerning Mike Comrie being traded.

I personally think that neither team will get Comrie – the Rangers don’t really need a center, and the Red Wings said they were looking for a center with SIZE, and I don’t think Mike Comrie fits THAT description. But hey, more awkward things have happened.

Fleury The Only Penguin To Silence Doubters

Well, it’s been a long time away, but with the Pens first game of the year in the books, and a performance worthy of nothing by praise by the rookie #29 Marc-Andre Fleury, I’ve gotta come out of hibernation. For those of you who only saw highlights of the game, unless you saw 46 seperate highlights for each save, you missed out big time. Actually you’d probably only need to see 30 highlights the way some of the shots came in “flurries” (that was bad). Most of the hockey world doubts the Penguins have a chance at doing anything this season, and many people disagree with the idea of signing fleury and exposing him to the NHL behind such a weak team. Fleury may have silenced those doubters for now, but the rest of the team sure gave credence to what has been said by many others.
