With the team now on the verge of qualifying for the 2009-2010 postseason, and Boucher once again positioned as "the man" between the pipes, the question must be asked:
Can history repeat itself?
"For me, it really represents an opportunity," said Boucher, after practice at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone on Thursday. "To get back into the playoffs and have a chance to start, obviously it would be a big deal and something I'd look to make the most of.
"Once you're in, anything can happen."
Boucher speaks from experience. After replacing veteran John Vanbiesbrouck as the team's starting goaltender late in the 1999-2000 regular season, the then-23-year-old rookie caught fire and led the Flyers to within one win of the Stanley Cup Finals.
I dig it. And man, I just love that music in those commercials. That's what really gets me about them. I'm guessing that short piece is all there is and it was composed specifically for that commercial, but if it's a blip from some song, I gotta have it. If anybody knows anything more about the music...I'd love some more info.
I was just thinking I should do one of those with the Kane/Cooke KO. And then when it fades out to the text...rather than have some deep, meaningful question, it'll just say something like..."Wouldn't you like to see that again?" And then of course, the KO will play again. Fade out, the end. But ****, the music will cut off. ****, there goes that idea. Hmmm...maybe when the KO rolls for the second time, some badass death metal can be spliced in...it could be good comedy with the right execution. It's all about execution.
Imagine if he became extremely clutch for the playoffs. Holy **** that would be amazing. And in the first round, he has the ability to redeem himself against the Devils. Get back at them because of the 2000 playoffs.
