So I’m going to do everything in my power not to talk about the Eagles/Giants debacle this past weekend, and what better way to start it off by talking about the results of a preseason NHL Game!
::Borat Voice:: "I LIKE YOU!"
Last night on the heels of the much anticipated announcement of the 2012 Winter Classic being held at Citizens Bank Park, the Flyers and Rangers took part in some pre-season puck. I have to be honest, I was one of the first people to question the off season moves of Jeff Carter and Mike Richards, two of the most productive players in the Orange and Black’s recent history. Not only were they productive, they were two of my favorite players who I loved rooting for. But this is a business and it is the way things go sometimes (god GM’s around the world have brainwashed me). Not only did they give up two of my faves, they acquired two of my LEAST favorites in Jaromir Jagr and agitator Max Talbot. First of all, I thought Jagr had retired to some Russian Gulag to spend his latter days drinking Stolichyna and gambling away his life savings with Russian prostitutes all around (rash generalization). Little did I know that he was actually tearing it up in the KHL, working out like a fiend, all while finding God. Well it paid off.
After watching Jagr on the same Power Play line with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek, there is no doubt in my mind that we are going to see some magic happen. Take a look at his two goals last night:
Gotta love the all black skates. Solid goals especially coming against Hank Lundqvist, one of the top
