Hey Enstrom, Hey Hey Enstrom...

(updated below!)

(updated again below!)

Fuckitalltohell I hate jet lag. Anyway, a nice escape from death in Montreal yesterday. "A Death in Montreal"...does that make a good title for a spy thriller? Probably not.

Anyway, look at this:


I never thought I'd live to see the day when a Thrashers defenseman ranked in the Top Five point-getting d-men in the league, let alone find himself Number 1. The fact that there are TWO Thrashers d-men in the Top Five, Top THREE even, just makes this brave new world all the more profane and bizarre.

If I worked in the gerbil tank that determines who wins NHL awards, I'd actually hand the Norris to Toby Enstrom over Dustin Byfuglien. Dustin is great, but Toby is excellent in every way a defenseman should be. More complete, if you will.

Anyway. Now that you've had your coffee, here's a rambunctious song:


UPDATE- In the old email this morning, this from Razor Catch Prey:

^---Damn Blogspot won't enlarge this screenshot, so just click to enlarge.

That fine compound word "mind-boggling" does come to mind.

UPDATE II: Our "copy editor" has intervened in the comments section with an important Correction. It reads, "Uh, hate to break it to you, but Big Buff has over 160 shots and Kovy has 107. The columns are off by one space in the picture. Not sure how that happened." Thank you, Copy Editor, and may Kypris have mercy on us.

Indeed. It is one thing for Buff in a great year to have more goals (at this point) than Kovy in a bad year, but the fact that he is outshooting Kovy 43-22 is astounding. Kovy getting outshot by someone other than Alex Ovechkin?!?
