Extraleague Update Machine: 10-25-04 -> Day of the Slovaks

Today's Theme: Injuries and Whine

1. Jaromir Jagr and Martin Havlat, among many of the NHLers, have publicly whined about the referees off or on the ice. It seems the NHLers are too used to their 'superior' officiating and are quite frustrated with the Czech officials (Rozhodci).

2. Injuries - Jaromir Jagr crashed into the goal and he's out. Jiri Slegr hurt his back, and he's awaiting a doctor's diagnosis to see how long he will be out. You can see on the stat updates just how many NHLers are missing games due to injury. I'm sure the NHL teams can't be liking this, but they should expect it and live with it. It's not as if they are actually paying the players right now, anyway.


Martin Cibak is in this week's Zlata Helma honour roll. Watch this video clip as he wires a slapshot over the shoulder of ex-Avalanche prospect Petr Franek.

Today's stat updates, complete with the season-to-date totals for NHLers in the Slovakian Extraliga.



(edit: here they are!)

See, I hate whining about other people whining because it just connotates that you're whining too. But now I'm just whining about your whining about their whining.

Damn Havlat. He'd be perfect if he'd just wipe that smug grin off his face and started playing actual defense. Whenever I tell my friends about his stickhandling, they always think I'm talking about his ... you know, stick.. handling.
I really wouldn't know about his "stick"-handling, either.

I really don't want to go there :)
speaking of stick: have a look at this stick: (at least it is already 2 years old)

Misha :)
