You know what's lost in the recent Jeff Cowan love-in? That he was claimed off waivers from the Kings. By my count, since the end of last season, we've given the Los Angeles franchise Marc Crawford, his hair, Dan Cloutier, Cloutier's injury history, Cloutier's goaltending prowess, two second rounders & a fourth rounder in 2007 and a conditional one in 2009. In return, we've filled the Crawford void with a coach that's tapping talent left and right, normal coaching hair, a normal blood pressure for Ironman Brendan Morrison, no freakish goals from the opposing team dumping the puck, Brent Sopel, and Brent Sopel's hair. And, of course, the Cowman. Not too bad at all.
Also, since when did throwing bras become a thing to do? And how come this never happens at games I go to? Damn devils fans are too tame and Rangers fans, well, those men need their bras for lower back support so I don't want them hurting themselves. As Kramer says, "No, no, a bra is for ladies. Meet the Bro!"
By the way, how nice was it to see a 60 minute solid effort? Sedin nets his career high in goals, Smoke gets his first as a Canuck in what seems to have been a magical "how the hell did that go in?" goal, Cowan keeps rolling and Luongo ties McLean's record (golly I like being timely). All the while that Minnesota gets shut out at home? Beautiful.
Some parting shots:
