Could it be? With only a handful of games left before this years playoffs it appears as though all six Canadian team could compete for Lord Stanley’s prize.
From TSN.ca: Dallas Stars goaltender Marty Turco has been suspended four games for his stick infraction in Wednesday night’s game against the Edmonton Oilers.
It’s happened in the last few years: a Cinderella team has made the playoffs and wreaked havoc upon other, stronger teams. Last year there was, of course, the Mighty Ducks and the Wild. The Ducks only swept Detroit, beat Dallas, and then triumphed over the other team with the glass slipper. The Wild came from behind after being down 3-1 to the Avs and ‘Nucks to win the series. They did this twice. Of course, they got swept by the Ducks. Anaheim went on to the Cup final against New Jersey, but lost in 7.
The Habs, Bob Gainey, pulled a slick one yesterday in the signing of ECAC player of the year Yann Danis, according to a press release via Canadiens.com.
This Quebec native obviously wanted the Habs more than any other team by vioding his entry draft status. He most likely would have been the highest goalie and a top-ten pic.
No, gosh darn it, you didn’t get rid of me for good. It’s just that my submission in the wake of the “hit I am sick of seeing” was too vituperous for publication.
