Well, the player who scored the goal wasn't his responsibility... So I wouldn't go over board with that argument.
However, I counted 6 times tonite the following three words in succession.
BLAKE - SHOOTS - WIDE
The guy couldn't put a puck on net if his $6 million contract depended on it... of course it doesn't, he'll collect the money anyway. but hey... the guy shows up to practices and games before anyone else does and that sets a good example for the kiddies according to DL... that's gotta be worth something right?
Blake is a star tonight - for what reason?? He did nothing to prevent the OT goal. Not sure who picks these stars but there were some much better choices.
It makes alot more sense than Willsie being the 3rd star vs EDM on Saturday!
The NHL needs to assign people who now hockey to pick out the 3 stars. Then at the end of the season they could have an award based on the most appearances as a star. Canadian teams have something like this called the Molson Cup three stars.
Heck name the Trophy after Gretzky.
