Spezza is...amazing, to say the least. He has developed so much as a player since I started watching the NHL, it's just unbelievable. He went from an erratic turnover machine (albeit an occasionally dominant offensive force, and a consistent offensive threat) to a two-way, franchise centerman. Once Alfie retires, he's going to be one hell of a captain. Just doesn't give in.
Karlsson, too. If there was a positive to today's game, it's that Karlsson got me 6 points in my keeper league.
Haha I loved the post game video of the players coming off the ice with Spezza yelling "The pesky Sens at it again!" or something to that extent. It's really nice to see these guys having so much fun this year after the horrible nightmare that was last season.
I'm sorry I posted that you quit, after the Rangers went up 4-1. I'm sorry, that I almost turned off the game, although I did get up and walk out of the room. I'm sorry that I doubted your ability to come back and win, especially considering how many times this season you've fought back in the third period to come from behind, whether you've won or just fallen short.
I promise I won't call you quitters again, although being a crazed hockey fan.....i can't promise to never break that promise.
Great to see the team doing so well, they're proving a lot of people wrong.
Exhibit A as to how hockey doesn't matter on ESPN:
Last night an ESPN program was discussing how the Detroit Pistons needed a hero citing the heroes on the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Lions and no mention of the Detroit Red Wings. All this despite the Red Wings probably being the most succesful team in Detroit right now.
