Thanx 4 sharing it
Sounds like you had a great time and tipped the scales in the Mats Sundin Sweepstakes to NYRs favor!
Ummm I will say that I like the game of Poker and have won quite a bit. How did Mats fare? And u yourself?
I have met Mats several times. He is a cool guy and avid fisherman. He hangs out a lot with my brother with whom he was teammates with in Djurgården way back...
He asked me about my thoughts on the Rangers lately. We joked a bit about the 8-5 loss and that not impacting his decision! I got across that I thought the Rangers were very tired from their compressed early season schedule and hadn't gotten nearly enough practice time to hone their defensive play and in the last 10 games it had caught up with them. But I said I didn't think they could play any worse and they were still 19-11 so they would only improve on that.
He asked me interesting who I was impressed with and not so much on the Rangers. I offered up Naslund, Orr, Mara, and of course Lundqvist. On the disappointed side I brought up Redden and the strange saga of Prucha and Dawes. I gave reasons for each but was optimistic about Prucha (no playing time, 30 goal scorer, they stopped putting him on the off wing which was curious). He seemed sufficiently impressed.
