First off, shamless plug-in: We're up for two Bloguin Awards -- Best Banner and Best Hockey Blog -- and we're just vain enough to want to win. Competition is stiff, especially for Best Hockey Blog.We're up against the juggernauts that is The PensBlog. Sooo, if you enjoy this blog, vote for us! We might not win, but you'll make Purrgeron happy. Voting ends tomorrow.
First showdown between the Leafs and Bruins this season. Lots of talk about Seguin facing the team he could've been drafted by.
Also lots of "How does it feel to play against your hometown team?"
"I guess I'm their enemy. I don't know if I'm still a hometown local guy that's liked pretty well."
And even worse, "What do you think of Phil Kessel?" and asking him to compare himself with "The Thrill."
"I think it is a little bit too early right now to just do that. Phil's much older. He's already on the top line. He's already earned his stripes, and I'm just a guy who's what, six games into my career? It's a little bit different."
We were realling hoping for him to respond with "Kessel who?"
Also, let it be noted that the fact that Phil Kessel and Hart Trophy is being uttered in the same sentence is making us want to vomit.
And for the record, Seguin isn't being sent down to the OHL. Too many fans have bought his t-shirt already for that to happen. Seguin means money and we know how much the Jacobs clan love money. Also, he won't learn anything new down there.
Some fun tweets coming from Haggs and Giardi of CSNNE.com:
To be fair, Komisarek is the 'tard that keeps going after Lucic despite, every time they meet, Lucic busts his face open.
After the jump... more on Komi and Lucic's (one-sided) rivarly...
