SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE - 11/17/2013

The coffee is hot, be careful!

Did Kris Versteeg hit the lottery or what?  Going back to Chicago is a blessing although I just hope he leaves his injury problems behind.

He first game back with the Blackhawks looked more like a Panthers game than a Hawks game.

Carey Price has lost 5 of last 6 and has had some hard luck in some of those.  Perhaps a good “buy low” op has arisen.

Does Evgeni Nabokov and Nikolai Khabibulin going down with groin injuries last night tell you something?

Duchene went down with an oblique injury.  Everyone hopes it won’t be serious, me included, but it just sounds serious.

This year’s boy wonder, Ben Bishop, left the game last night with an UBI (upper-body injury).  Tough night to be a goaltender in the NHL.

JVR scored his 8th and 9th last night.  The Leafs need more of that.  It just can’t be all Kessel, all the time.

Kudos to Rangers G Cam Talbot for notching his first NHL shutout as he blanked the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre.  No easy feat!

Every single Ranger player had a SOG except for D Marc Staal.

Where in the world is David Desharnais? Max Pacioretty needs you!

Martin Brodeur has turned back the clock winning 4 in a row and 6 of his last 7.

I’d never thought I would ever say this, but the Penguins offense stinks of late.

If you haven’t noticed but the Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils are slowly but surely moving up the Conference rankings.

Is it me or do the Islanders have the Red Wings’ number?

Pavel Datysuk jersey is the third best selling NHL jersey.  I think that’s what I’ve heard.  He is really amazing.  You too Zetterberg.

Steen ain’t losing any steam it seems.

Do you know who led the Red Wing defensemen in shots on goal in that Islander game?  Quincey and Lashoff with 1 each.

Brock Nelson had 7 SOG last night.  Who?  Put this kid on your watch list.  His name sounds like a tough hockey player.

Semin is the perfect example of those players who play hard only for the money.  Got his contract after last year’s tremendous season, and now only has like 9 points at the quarter mark.  That’s a total of 36 for the year.  Bleeeech!

The Nashville Predators scored a week’s worth of goals against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.  7 goals!  A miracle in the music city.

I’m beginning to like Brandon Pirri more and more.  9 points in 15 games this year for the rookie.

I love how David Backes gives you a little bit of everything every night.

Shane Doan gets overlooked in almost all fantasy leagues but he is quietly having a super season.  10-6-16 in 20 games.

Martin Hanzal is a beast.  At least for now.  He leads the Yotes in scoring with 18 points in 18 games.

Has Mike Ribeiro helped the Desert Dogs become such offensive juggernauts?

6 goals in the game and no points for Colonel Klinkhammer.  Shame.

Semyon Varlamov has now lost 4 of his last 5.  I wonder if his legal issues are having an effect, or is Patrick Roy’s effect starting to wear off so soon?

The standings are starting to look a bit more normal.

If only the Edmonton Oilers could play the Calgary Flames the rest of the way, they may make the playoffs.

Have a great week!
