So this was in THN today:
Ondrej Pavelec, G, AtlantaDo you know what the defintion of insanity is? The quote has never properly been attributed, but runs the gamut from 80s mystery writer Rita Mae Brown to Benjamin Franklin or Albert Einstein. Nonetheless, "Doing the same thing in the same way, over and over, expecting different results" is said explanation of NUTBAGGERY.
After a play-me-or-trade-me tirade from his agent in the pre-season, the 21-year-old 2005 draft pick has played out of his mind for Chicago of the American League (1.54 GAA, .947 save percentage in nine games), but only so-so in his three NHL appearances (2.57 GAA, .889 save percentage). He was recalled again Wednesday with Kari Lehtonen on the shelf, but Pavelec, who played seven times last season as well, may take the No. 1 spot sooner than later. Rumors have current starter Lehtonen on the trade block.
Do the propagators of the cries of "Kari's being traded!" or those screaming "trade Kari and play Pavelec!" to the rafters, understand that basically what they're implying and/or demanding is, in and of itself, a case of insanity illustrated literally leaping out of the annuls of legend, and dancing its merry and ignorant way into existence? I'd just like to point out that the team has in its possession, at least until 30 June 2009, the guy who has set or broken the majority of the team's goaltending records.

Moving on. Did you see the Bruins/Habs game? Wow did the B's stuff it to the Habs. 6-1. I'm always a little sad when a hockey team gets a touchdown and doesn't go for the extra point. Unless it's the Thrashers giving up the TD in which it's not funny at all. But I love the Blue Collar B's. And y'all Thrash fans can say "Fuck Savard" all you want, but Boston offered him $5m/yr. Would you turn that down? Do the Thrashers pay anyone $5m/yr? Oh, just Kovy and Schneider? The guy they have to beg and bribe to stay, and the older gentleman who is currently out with a bum hip? Mmmkay. Just checking. Anyway, B's. #1 in the East. Bruins, the Bruins WHAT!
ARE THE THRASHERS PLAYING YET?! THIS MINI BREAK SUCKS!
