ESPN "Experts' Picks"

19

ESPN's hockey "experts" have made their picks for the first round. They all picked the Caps across the board, which usually makes me nervous. However, if that's a bad omen for Washington, they're not alone, since a whopping 7 of the 8 series were consensus picks. They only differed on the Devils/Canes series. Even Matthew Barnaby thinks that the Caps will win in 6, despite the fact that Theo "catches weird."

Bruce Boudreau on his love of the Leafs

43

Thought you guys over here at PPP would be interested to see this writeup on Bruce Boudreau from thestar.com if you have not already. He talks about his life-long love of the Leafs and the author discusses how the Leafs handled him as a prospect. Worth a read. And, of course, we'd love to have any willing parties back on the Caps' bandwagon again this year!

"If I asked you about your family, you would talk about them forever because it's something you love," Laich said. "That's the way I feel about this team. This team is my life, and I love playing here and I'm passionate about playing hockey. So it's easy for me to talk about it."

From Tarik's nice write-up on Laich in the Post. I take back what I said about Ovi and C. Laich is the next captain.

Nylander for Kovalev - Could it work?

Per DMG's suggestion, I'm breaking this out into a fanpost.  All of the Kovalev talk and rumors that the Habs are shopping him made me wonder, would they take Nylander in a deal for Kovalev?  I've...

Net Pads

I'm sure there is probably a rule against this in the NHL, but this is pretty brilliant. Goalie pads that look like the net!

Keeping Players in a Quality Organization

Marvin Harrison allegedly shot some people...

1

This story is shocking and details are still coming out, but it doesn't sound too good for Marvin. We'll see. "The source said the alleged victim came into the bar, Playmakers, around 5 p.m. and engaged in an argument with Harrison, who was at the bar. The victim then left the bar, heading to his car, with Harrison following. Gunfire broke out, the victim was hit in the hand, and a young girl was slightly injured by flying glass from a car that apparently was hit by a bullet. Police came to scene, but the victim did not identify a shooter. On Wednesday, according to the source, ballistic tests showed that the gun that had fired the shots was a custom-made Belgian weapon, and police determined that Harrison owned such a gun. Police then went to a Philadelphia car wash owned by Harrison to question him about the gun. Harrison admitted owning such a weapon, but claimed it never left his suburban Philadelphia home. However, the source said the gun was discovered in a bucket at the car wash, and tests showed that it had fired seven bullets that matched those found at the scene. "
