Lets have a little fun today.
So if you had to choose a movie to associate each CBJ player's season up to this point what would you choose? Here's what I came up with, feel free to list yours out in the comments if you'd like:
Nash - "The Incredibles" - goal of the year - 'nuff said
Zherderv - "Transformers" - from how he played last season to this season, I'd say this blockbuster is the perfect fit
Vyborny - "Dr Doolittle" - pretty much what he's done all year and that's very little
Malhotra - "Goodfellas" - seems like a likable guy..was gonna put "Heat" though b/c I think he's under some pressure to pick up his game
Hejda - "The Rock" - guys has been a rock on the blueline all year for us
Foote- "Gladiator" - big rebound season for Foote..he hasn't missed a game and has gotten back to his punishing style of play
Leclaire - "Dr Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" - this guys has stolen a lot of goals from opposing teams this year including 7 shutouts...of course he also looks like "The Grinch".
Boll - "Rocky" - leads the league in fights, 2nd in PIMs....this guy can do more than just punch though
Shelley - "Cast Away" - role on this team appears to shrink by the hour
Brassard - "Signs" - plenty of signs this kid will be the real deal and will solidify the center position for years to come
Modin - "Misery" - guy has been trapped with injuries all year but expect him to breakout of it
Russell - "Happy Feet" - small in stature but skates like the wind...slowly coming into his own out there
Klelsa - "What Women Want" - all I ever hear about is how the chicks dig this guy...title seems
fitting..oh yeah, he's played well this year especially the past month
Hainsey - "xXx" - he's been that 'x' factor on the blueline for us this season and is on pace for a
career high 40+ points
Murray - "A Few Good Men" - every team needs guys like Murray who aren't afraid to pay the price and get the job done the hard way
Novotny - "Any Which Way You Can" - this guy will do anything, play in any situation..whatever it takes.
Methot - "Sudden Impact" - when he got called up last year I think everyone was surprised at how well this kid played out of the gate
Norrena - "In the Line of Fire" - has done a decent job backing up Leclaire this year
Fedorov - "Dinosaur" - his best days have passed him by but he starting to play like he's not quite done yet in this league
Peca - "Fracture" - has had his share of injuries, including some this season, but has contributed most nights
Glencross - "The Good Shepherd" - just goes about his business and does whatever he can do to contribute to the team
Fritsche - "Crash" - either hits or takes the biggest hits of anyone on this team it seems
Chimera - "Speed" - yeah he's got great speed...but desperately needs new hands and a better one on one move
Tollefsen - "Hitman" - hits anything he can
Lindstrom - "Holes" - to many holes in his game right now to stay in the big show
Beech - "Gone With the Wind" - waivered, claimed by Canucks, now waivered again
Brule - "Changing Lanes" - spending some time with Syracuse to regain his game and confidence
Hitchcock - "Hitch" - that's a gimmie right? All I know is that Howson needs to extend this guy like yesterday..best thing to happen to the CBJ is right behind the bench
Noel - "The Game Plan" - just has been a great addition to the Jackets coaching staff
Agnew - "Somethings Gotta Give" - this powerplay was a wreck for most of the year, but appears to finally be back on track
Murphy - "Unbreakable" - dude must be solid b/c he's still employed by the Jackets after all the turnover
Marlachuk - "Miracle" - seriously, first Luongo and now Leclaire... I am starting to believe this guy is a miracle workers..
Howson - "The Emperor's New Groove" - got to say he's been a refreshing change of pace for this franchise.
Gare - "Analyze This" - just stay away from the telestrator Gare!
Mathews - "Spanglish" - because most of the time I have no idea what he's saying
Rimer - "Talk To Me" - Rimer never met a microphone or person he didn't like
Davidge - "Anaylyze That" - does the same thing as Gare except on radio side
The fans - "Cliffhanger" - its been quite a wild ride so far this season!
John H. McConnell - "As Good As It Gets" - I'm forever thankful he brought this city this franchise - thank you J-Mac!
