The Big Story
Who will be the next John Scott? I have no idea. However, I hope it doesn't become a thing that happens every single year.
Don't get me wrong here. It was an incredibly awesome story last season and I was actually truly interested in watching the NHL All-Star game for the first time in a very long time. It was something fun and unique. If a goon/grinder/4th liner gets voted in every season, you won't get that Hollywood Disney movie story.
I don't really want to see Luke Glendening in the all-star game. I definitely don't want to see Steve Ott either (sidebar: suspend him for his spear on Zdeno Chara... that was stupid as hell).
In Red Wings Land
Tuukka Rask may have gotten the shutout in last night's game, but Jimmy Howard's shoutout was much cooler.
Let's Go Red Wings.
