Holy crap, a month and some since the last post? Even with our record November?Our team/goalie/captain/road record/everything except when we play Chicago or Colorado/etc. is awesome, y/y?Discuss.OH AND GUESS WHO WAS NHL'S STAR OF THE MONTH FOR NOVEMBER?? Our very own declining, according to CalgaryPuck captain IGGY and his 13 goals & 7 assists. Fuck yes!
for the record it seems like no one is talking hockey on here anymore. The hockey community has very little posting compared to last year. I never EVER sweat early season stuff, especially because I know Brent Sutter's system takes some getting used to. Still they went 7-4-1 in October which was totally fine. Iginla never scores much in that month and the D was getting used to each other (phaneuf and regeher had to iron out their play together because they've never played great together to this point and from what I've heard from some people close to the team they aren't overly friendly off the ice either). This team is made for a playoff run and honestly if we go the way the Sutter's are taking us, this team could challenge for conference title. Kipper is unreal so far. If he plays like this all season, after a sort of slow start numbers wise, he may challenge for not only the Vezina but the Hart as well.Make no mistake, this team is built to win NOW. Iggy is at the bubble age where he may only have a couple really big years left. I don't sweat the Colorado stuff, they will eventually fall off when the meat of the season hits them with that young of a team. Chicago is our sort of nemesis and most teams have one, so that's the one they need to figure out how to stop. They do seem to be wildly outskated by them every time they play. San Jose has a monster team too, hopefully our big D will punish them and make it tough to find any offensive room for that big line. It will be fun come playoff time.
