The Morning Skate for Tuesday, August 28

Bullet points for what you missed while having dreams of a 70 game regular season with playoffs ending in May...

  • Veteran defenceman and Duck captain (that sounds funny...) Scott Niedermayer who had previously hinted that he would call it a day after his last championship this spring is now realizing that pursuing one of the most brilliant careers ever may not be a bad idea after all.
  • 110% last night was having a feast over La Presse's article featuring a vocal Saku Koivu managing expectations for the season to come; in short, the Captain is saying that the Cup is not a concern for now, nor is it realistic, it's about making the playoffs...just what I like to hear...
  • The entire world is on the edge of its seat for Game 2 of the Junior Super Series that goes today between Canada and Russia...wake me up we rejoin the Westminster Dog Show in progress.

HF29 is still incapable of posting his famous TMS. His 56k modem seems to be failing him, as is evidenced by the distress smoke signals billowing out of his isolated retreat.

Holy shit, I still remember when I was getting myself worked up in the frenzy of being suckered into thinking that "yes, the Habs can win a cup. I mean umpteenth year's the charm or what?".

But hey, I trust Saku. He's the only sane one because everyone's like building a massive Latendresse float or something.
