I watch a lot of hockey. And when I watch Western Conference teams, a lot of times I don't have a rooting interest. I'm just rooting against a 3 point game. But dammit if they don't happen almost every time.
Looks like we might have another one with SJ @ ANA
Former draftee Aaron Palushaj to Colorado. Skilled, smallish guy whose game hasnt translated to the NHL. IMO we got better value in Dago, but neither has secured an NHL career to this point.
I think D'Agostini would be playing every game on most NHL teams.
It will be interesting to see what Palushaj can do in Colorado, I suspect he needs a top 6 role in order to be effective and I don't think he is good enough for that. He done well in Hamilton, so maybe now that he'll have a good centre in Colorado (if they sort the ROR situation) he might be able to translate some of that to the NHL.
Palushaj is the caliber of player you can get if you need wingers and the trade market hasn't opened up yet (because it's too early in the season to know who's out of it yet). If you want a player better than Palushaj you need to make a trade. D'Agostini is probably available in the right trade but teams would rather pick up a Palushaj for "free" than trade for a D'Agostini at the moment.
Going to the Blues-Avs game in 15 days – hopefully will see Palushaj in the lineup.
Espn is talking about a blown match penalty call on the sharks, funny how they were no where to be seen on the Backes call. Fine with me though stop talking about how good we are and leave us under the radar please.
