I kinda like seeing Atlanta do well(just not against us of course). Even though thier in our conference. It just really funny to me that Kolvuchuk leaves and now thier competitive and Jersey is crap. Hilarious.
Rick Dudley gave them an extreme makeover this offseason and brought in a bunch of different players. It seems to be working out so far. Enstrom and Byfuglien looks like a dynamite pairing. Intersted to see how Burmistov looks too.
Buff played both wing and D in Chicago, sort of randomly at times over the prior two seasons. I think Atlanta is using him perfectly though. I don't like idea of hockey in the deep south because the teams are wasted on fans who (for the most part) take the teams for granted, but I'm happy for Atlanta this year. It's funny to see them have success with a somewhat rag-tag bunch of guys and NJ blows at the same time (last in the league in offense if I'm not mistaken). Too perfect.
The players they got from Chicago are definitely working out well for them. Andrew Ladd is being overshadowed by Dustin, but Ladd is at a point per game and was recently made Captain of the team. I picked him up in fantasy as soon as I realized he was a fourth overall pick and he was being put in positions where he could score.
If you think so, the Harajuku area of Tokyo would paralyse you entirely with dread on any given weekend.
...that's if you could shake the wonder of seeing Asian Elvis dwarfs in great numbers next to all the goth-lollies and Californication surfer boys, of course .
****, I wanna go to Tokyo again soon! Warped.
I'm definitely excited for this game...especially interested in seeing Pavelec again since he has been awesome as of late. Hope he isn't too good tonight or Saturday...just next week when he can help my fantasy team
