A few media people, including the Team 1040, Canucks radio, have reported that Nazzy has been showing Pavol Demitra around Vancouver. It amuses me imagining those two strutting down Robson Street together. They were both former clients of Gillis, so it makes sense that they are friendly. I had pretty much decided that Nazzy was not coming back to Vancouver, but this makes things much more interesting. Why would Nazzy be spending the time showing Demitra the beautiful sites of Vancouver if he had no interest in playing again in the city? Is Gillis going to try and get some guys for Nazzy to mesh with? I guess we won’t know anything for sure until closer to July and free agency.
One of Jannick Hansen’s goals with Denmark was put on YouTube, and it was a beauty. He snuck it through a defender’s legs and then sniped it high over the goalie. He’s not talked up as a top 6 forward, although I think he could be a very solid third liner with Kes and Burr. I hope we get to see him on the roster next season.
That Sharks/Stars game last night was fantastic! The speed was incredible, the goalies were going insane and making saves to one up each other, and it just kept going and going! It’s delighful we finally got to see a marathon OT game. There’s nothing better than playoff OT hockey when it’s played like that.
I’m a little brokenhearted about the Sharks. They were my playoffs love affair, and now it’s over. I think Patty Marleau should come to Vancouver. He must be so stressed from all the negativity. And the quiet, sensitive Captain that gets abused spot is already filled, so he doesn’t have to worry. Hee.
Canada and the USA play in the world championships tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to that game. There’s a lot of very good players on both sides and it should be fun to watch.
