I bet the Caps are sighing to themselves that their Russian Captain is going to win the Hart just like the Blue Jackets are upset that their goalie will win the Vezina. I can keep going if you'd like? Nonsense.
Oh wow the caps captain is going to win the heart big deal . There gonna be out in the first round if not second round . They never done any damage when the playoffs pick up. With ovy, backstroke and semin ...
Jagr is also a different player , he played in an era that molded the type of player that he is . I have a lot of respect for that man . Along with gabby playing with a separated shoulder in the playoffs . But at the end of the day we got back 3 Canadian boys for a soft Czech. And to be honest I would make that trade any day going into the playoffs .
Btw you point to stralman as stepping his game up in staals absent . But how would this defensive corp look with all European defense man ? I'm not saying I don't want any Europeans on my hockey team I'm just saying I would prefer Canadian / North American players as the majority especially in the playoffs
Oh and btw I'm Swedish and Italian just in case anyone is wondering
