I originally wrote a lengthy and unspeakably crazy rant about this one. Than I decided to save all that for another time and place, because there are really only 4 things worth saying:
- The Sabres are so good, they could play bridge for three hours and I’d still watch. Like crack on ice, they are.
- Sidney Crosby is one of the few things in this life that actually lives up to the hype.
- Therefore, and unfortunately, nobody in the entire world of hockey is capable of talking rationally about the Penguins, who are more or less spectacularly adequate.
- I hate Anglophone hockey commentary.
Far, far too much more on these subjects to come…
