With his signing today, Trevor Daley avoids arbitration this summer; although with the way salaries are going, who knows what he may have gotten with it? Now, does that mean he's staying put here for a while? Sounds like it. We'll wait and see what the summer brings. As far as the Stars are concerned, Daley has upswing. And he is expected to grow in various aspects of his game, including the offensive side.
By the way, congrats to Mr. Daley on something else: He's getting married later this summer.
OK, onto other hockey tidbits:
**The Penguins have two goals against the Wings in Game 3, their first two goals of this SERIES. Oh, and Sidney Crosby has both of them. That's the non-surprise of this whole shebang.
**That was one pretty goal by Johan Franzen. Yeah, never bad to have someone like that return to the lineup.
**In-game interviews are just not a good idea. And I mean that for every sport, especially in the playoffs. You're playing for your season, and someone wants your thoughts. If we're going to do the in-game interview, put these games on HBO. Now those would be some deep (and colorful) thoughts.
**Did everyone see the footage of the Spokane Chiefs dropping the Memorial Cup? Yes, I know it's just a replica, but that was funny nonetheless. I almost fell off the crosstrainer at the gym.
**There's one storm cloud in the area, and it's right over my apartment. Is someone trying to tell me something?
