"Hey Butthead, He Said..."

A hockey sweater Beavis and Butthead would love...


I'll be in San Francisco until September the 6th. Posting will be light until then.

In the meantime, I see Milan Kraft has decided to join Evgeni Malkin in Russia as Kraft Dinner signed a contract with Avangard Omsk. Given how much I paid for Kraft in a fantasy league 3 years ago, this really does piss me off. I figured the guy could have syphoned off a few easy points this season with all of the talent Pittsburgh has.

** Dave Andreychuk signed with the Tampa Bay Lightnings for 2 more years. I wonder if he has yet another 20-goal season in him!

It's amazing how consistant of a goal scorer Andreychuk has been over his career. In his 22 NHL seasons, Andreychuk has scored 20 or more goals 19 TIMES!!! (including the last 5 seasons).

Wow, doesn't that make you feel old? He's been playing since I was 4 years old. Some of you whippersnappers weren't even born when he was screen guys like Mike Liut.

The only seasons in which Andreychuk did not score 20+ goals were in 1982-83, his rookie season in which he played only 43 games, and then a 2-year span in 1997-98 and 1998-99 when he looked like a cooked turkey.

I'm hoping he can make it 2 more 20-goal seasons before he is done. He's already got 634 goals and 686 assists in 1597 games. He's a Rafael Palmerio type Hall of Famer, without the steroids and Viagra.

Stat Split of the Day:

Marian Hossa, who was recently dealt to the apathetic hockey market of Atlanta, is a remarkably consistant player no matter where he plays

Home: 40GP 22-19-41 +9
Road: 40GP 23-16-39 -1

Home: 41GP 20-22-42 +2
Road: 40GP 16-24-40 +2

Hossa is consistent yes, but Heatley has a spark that will ignite the Sens this year. Look for big things from Heatley and his teammates this year.

Losing DeVries is huge though, but they needed to drop some salary. Heatley is a huge addition especially for the bargain price!

Mr. Golbez, thanks for your fine site.

As a Habs fan, I'm quite intrigued with the potential of Juraj Mikus whom they drafted this past summer from Skalica HK 36 of the Slovak Championship League. You seem to have insight and connections regarding the Czech and Slovak players, I would appreciate any info you could supply regarding Mukis. Juraj averaged a point per game over the last 10 games or so in the senior league, once the NHL players left the team. That is quite remarkable for a 17 year old. Also he was in on 7 of the 11 goals that the Slovak U18 managed at the WC. He really looks like he could be the big sleeper in what is shaping up to be an excellant Montreal draft.
Fukufuji? Hope his first name isn't Noyu...:(

That is the writeup I did on Juraj Mikus for
Everything I know about the guy should be there :) disabled their stats page for some unknown reason, so I can't comment on his production until they put them back up.
