Merry ChristmasDecember 24, 2007
Nice win by the Preds last night with a 3-1 win over the Bluejackets…I didn’t get to see it but I liked what I heard. One name that I kept hearing last night was that of #22 Jordin Tootoo. I am loving his game and the way he is taking on the responsibility that the coaches are giving to him. Tootoo is making a case for him to be a top RFA signing for the Preds.
Glad to have Mason play a solid game before a couple days off. He needs to reassert himself as the number one and last nights 30 save performance. We all know what Mason is capable of and he does too…nights like last night must make Poile sleep a little better after trusting Mason with the starters job.
Last minute herorics: I was sitting in my car fully expecting the game to go into OT when ny heart sank as Dumonts shot hit the post. Ugh…I thought. Then Pete and Terry start talking about how Dumont was pointing saying it was in. They reviewed after time had expired and BAM! 2-1 Lead. Add an empty netter by Jed Ortmeyer (a guy who is endearing himself to Preds fan with his great work ethic) and we got a 3-1 game. I was thrilled to not give Columbus a point last night…that was huge.
Eklund Rumor: Wow…I hope this is one rumor that does NOT come to pass fomr Eklund. That of Shea Weber going to the NE. This guy is a franchise player and not signing him would be a huge mistake. He will be the face of this team for years to come.
Merry Christmas: Thanks to all my readers of this blog both on myhockeybuzz and here at predjoe for reading, commenting and emailing me your feedback. You keep me going. I wish each and everyone of you a Merry Christmas and hope that each of you experience the true joy of the season this year…Jesus.
