Just a friendly reminder that Buffalo lost (regulation and OT/SO) 37 games last year en route to winning their division. They 3 times lost 4 or more games in a row, including a stretch of 6 in a row. I get the feeling they are still adjusting to new linemates/defense partners, and that certainly isn’t helped by Pominville being out. There are definitely fixes that need to be made, but they sure do have plenty of time to make them. Let it play out.
Speaking of Pominville/Hjalmarsson, the suspension made Woot’s news aggregation/humor post.
CHICAGO (UPI) — Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson has been suspended for two games following a questionable hit, ESPNChicago.com reported Tuesday.
Hjalmarsson says that his hit, a techno cover of “Free Bird”, totally has precedent and is not even slightly questionable.
Sounds like something a Swede would do.
