Finding a photo of action between the Blues and Panthers where every person in the frame is still with both teams is difficult.
Actually, if you're paying attention to the standings, and I'm sure you are, this is an interesting game. Florida comes in with the best road record in the league with 14 points. The Blues are among the league leaders in home records with 13 points. Something's gotta give.
Were you aware Ed Jovanovski is back with Florida? He's 35 and in the first year of a four year deal worth more than $16 million. That means when he's 39 and really shitty, he'll be making more than $4 million. And the NHL says it won't have a labor dispute when the CBA expires.
Speaking of expired CBAs, how about the NBA? Those crazy kids can't find a way to make it in this crazy world, so it looks like they're going to call it quits for a year. Owners sign players to ridiculous contracts, players want a bigger share of revenue, owners want to protect themselves, players take to Twitter to show their solidarity. Welcome to labor relations in 2011.
I have a feeling Jaroslav Halak will be in goal tonight for the Blues. But Brian Elliott is lurking should Halak shit the bed. The Blues have earned seven of eight points under the large and in charge Ken Hitchcock. Can they make it nine of 10? Comment like your witty observations are jelly donuts and Game Time is coaching the Blues.
