Aaron Portzline put up some things that wouldn’t surprise him, and while I may agree with some of them, I have to say, well, I have my own list. But, first, here are some of Portzline’s that I really enjoyed:
– Rick Nash has a “go” with former captain Adam Foote on Jan. 13 when Colorado plays in Nationwide Arena
– Tollefsen gives Nash two shifts to take on Foote, then does it himself if need be
– Jason Chimera scores 20 goals, a career high
– Michael Peca is better this year than he was last season
– Pascal Leclaire makes the All-Star Game in 2008-09
So, those are just some of my favorites, now to get my list going.
- Voracek is rookie of the year.
- Pascal Leclaire has a better GAA and save % than some of the ‘elite’ goaltenders
- Mason proves himself in the minors, and is called up after we trade Freddy at the deadline
- Filatov has an outstanding season in Juniors, and we bring him up for our first playoff run.
- Nash has four fights this season.
- Michael Peca gets signed for another year.
- Nikolai Zherdev scores a hat trick against us.
- Adam Foote gets used and abused every shift he is on the ice.
- Freddy Modin is healthy the entire season.
- We open the season with a win versus Dallas.
- We stay healthy, for once.
