Spring Time!!...

Does anyone Watch Jay Leno? I watch his show every now and again but one part of his show had me laughing my A$$ off.
Somebody managed to send a headline in that was in the Vancouver sun talking about the Vancouver Giants.

The headlines read "Hay not pleased with slumping PP"

Well its going be fairly quiet around here for a while. I will still post if there are any major announcements or trades or anything exciting happens. Sometime over the Summer I will be trying to make a custom redesign of the blog.

Its awesome to see sooo many guys who have recently played in the WHL on TV in the playoffs, Even Better if its a Tiger Player.

Darren Helm, Derek Dorsett, and Kris Russel must be having some fun, they have all been involved in the Detroit vs Columbus first round series.

Darren Helm has been playing about 5-8 minutes a game. Russel has been playing anywhere from 10-18 minutes. Dorsett was a scratch in the first game but he has played about 8 minutes a game in the other 2 playoff games. I Don't believe any of them have any points as of yet.

Cam Barker has been a Key piece to the Blackhawks Defense. He has a goal and 2 assists over the three games played. Watch for him to be a very good late-mid to late round pick next year in your fantasy hockey drafts. He gets lots of PP time(first unit) and managed 40 points in only 68 games this year for the Hawks.

I think Joffrey Lupul has an assist over three playoff games, playing about 15 minutes a game. Some fans think he will be the odd man out next year in philly, with them being pretty close to the salary cap.

Micheal Sauer is playing for the Hartford Wolfpack in the playoffs.
Steve Regier is an assistant captain for the Peoria Riverman(st louis affiliate)
Regier came off a 50 point season, and has 2 points in 4 playoff games.

Chris Stevens started the year of slow with Phoenix Roadrunners of the echl. But now he captains the Reading Royals (echl) and has put up 41 points in 47 games with them, their team missed the playoffs.

David Schlemko had 29 points in 69 games for Phoenix farm team San Antonio Rampage, their team also missed the playoffs.

Matt Keetley had an up and down year, splitting Time with Las Vegas and Quad City. He had a .892 save percentage in quad city, but a .930 save percentage in Las Vegas. HE had a very good start and finish, but a mediocre middle part of the season. Keetley is currently a black Ace for the Flames.

Gord Baldwin if I remember correctly played in 55 games for Quad City.
I haven't heard anything about Matt McCue, or Tyler Ennis.

Have A good Summer! (and hopefully we don't get snow that is forecasted for Thursday)
