Here’s my Hockey Christmas Wish list. In no particular order. Well, except for the last one.
David Booth: To resume playing this year, concussion, and headache free.
25 goals for Jonathan Cheechoo. Love his name, love his work ethic, but gosh, he deserves a break.
Figure out a way to stop the headshots. Respect each other boys.
Enough snow and cold weather to make the New Years Day game spectacular. (well not as good as last year, but close)
A playoff birth for the Florida Panthers.
May the Montreal Canadiens and Jacques Martin miss the playoffs for his entire tenure there. Oh, crap just fire him.
Minnesota Wild: A fireproof bus!
Either by trade, or free agent signing, a pure goal scoring sniper for the Florida Panthers. PLEASE!
Sean Avery: Just once be honorable and fight the player that asks you to. Even if you get your arse kicked.
Roberto Luongo: To miss the playoffs. Thus allowing the Kings and or anyone else in besides them.
Mike Keenan: One last coaching job and a long and successful playoff run to go with it. Including a Cup. Then, you can retire and tell everyone to piss off.
Pierre McGuire: To stop referring to players as monsters.
Toronto Maple Leafs: To make the playoffs. Nothing better for hockey and the media as when the Leafs are in the mix.
A major TV contract with ESPN. And while you’re at it, bring back Gary Thorne and Bill Clement.
Alex Ovechkin: A new front tooth.
Cindy Crosbitch: Finally get your own place. How old are you?
Last but not least, please Santa, please bring a Stanley Cup to Chicago this year for my beloved Blackhawks! And if they do against Pittsburgh all the better.
Once again thanks to everyone who comes here on a daily basis. It’s a pleasure to do this blog and hopefully there are times when I make you laugh, smile, agree, or disagree. Most of all, we share one common thread and that is the love of the best game on earth.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Thanks for reading.
