Yeah, but sustaining, or piling up, good games was a problem this season well before Berube took over. Berube put it best: Team doesn't play well when it's mentally tired. They've got to push through that.
Yes, it was. But I still bounce into the football realm every once in a while. For example, I hope to be covering Isaac Bruce's induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer in Canton. As for the XFL coverage, as I mentioned earlier, I may do a story or two, but I'm a hockey guy now.
I think he's playing a better all-around game this season. But I'd have to say, at this point, he doesn't look like an elite scorer. I brought this up earlier, I wonder if his shoulder's still a little bit of an issue in the sense that his shot isn't quite the rocket it usually is.
The Alliance of American Football already has teams in San Antonio and San Diego, and that league gets a head start on the XFL _ starting this coming February. Don't know what to say about Oakland, other than there might have been issues getting a stadium.
I like the way you're thinking. . . . .
Nolan, Bortuzzo, Maroon, Edmundson _ even Schenn _ those are all guys that aren't afraid to throw their weight around. I don't know if having all those guys around at the start (remember Bortuzzo missed a lot of time, Edmundson missed two games) would have titled things. You still need to score goals.
1.) Mad Mike, 2. Mad Mike. . . .10,000.) Mad Mike. Unfortunately, Mike Martz is coaching the San Diego team in the Alliance league. In my interview with XFL commissioner Oliver Luck, I did suggest that the XFL lure Martz away from San Diego and have him coach the St. Louis team.
Well, McMahon owns all of the teams in the league. So I don't think he wants to sell shares and thus sell ownership.
I would do what Toronto does. Just have three A's and no C. That takes some of the pressure off the guy who would normally wear the C, and I think foster more of a team togetherness feeling.
Maybe the open ice and less physical play of the international game suits Parayko. With the Blues I would like to see him be a regular on the power play, something that should happen with Petro sidelined. He still has the big shot and I think he's been a bit more accurate with it lately.
Maybe the Post-Dispatch should have a poll.
Interesting thought. Don't have an answer for you. Binnington is playing very well for San Antonio, but Husso has kind of struggled this year. Armstrong made it pretty clear he wanted to get Husso more experience (via the AHL).
1.) Faster game. 2.) The routine in covering hockey is there is no routine. 3.) Greater accessibility to coaches (and to some extent players).
Yeah, the NHL is incredibly competitive. Every team seems to have at least a player or two that can hurt you. More competitive than the NFL. Yeah, there were many of the Rams teams that didn't seem mentally strong. Part of that was coaching/leadership, but after all those losing years, a lot of it was just a losing culture in the building. That's why it's very important to the Blues that they get out of this funk as quickly as possible. The more you lose the more you can get used to losing and accept losing.
I only had one small bag. . .
. . . .OK, two small bags.
100 to nothing, staying in LA. (Until Stan gets a better deal.)
I thought the Bread Man had stated he wanted to go to a big market. He seems very chummy with Tarasenko, maybe Tarasenko can work on him. (Or Nelly). How's Bobrovsky playing this season.
It's pretty stupid in my book. Laughably stupid. Especially now with gambling officially a part of the NHL
