Stat of the day and more..

Did you know that Rick Nash was 5th in the league in terms of percentage of his team's goals?

1. Ovechkin 27.3%
2. Kovalchuk 25.6%
3. Iginla 22.5%
4. Boyes 21.2%
5. Nash 20.3%

Also, for those that don't get to HFBoards to often some posters have a must read over there regarding the Q/A from Hitch/Howson last night - follow this link and scroll down to post #28 - lots of good info.

Welcome back, Stat of the Day! lol

Also, thanks for putting up that link to the HFBoards, that was an awesome read. Every time I read an interview with Howson or listen to Hitch's radio show I get pumped up. They really sound like they are the kind of guys who can build a consistently great team here.

Not to be a dick, but you really need to look into the appropriate uses of the words "to" and "too". It can be a little distraction when you use "to" instead of "too" too much.

I'll have my editor look in"too" it.

I read that thread on HF boards and there are some complete idiots over there, huh? I mean: 'Hitch's system is garbage'...'he is an egomaniac'...he was picked in a poll by players as a coach they would least like to play for'...REALLY? This is the intelligence level of the jackets fan base?

How about that jackass who mentioned the flyers beating the caps as a reason to build through free agency. Did that douchebag even watch any of the flyers/caps games? Plus: Lupul--the guy who scored the game winner was acquired in a trade!

The flyers narrowly escaped blowing a 3-1 series lead and if it weren't for Biron in game 7 they were done. The caps walked all over the flyers 5 on 5 it was only on the pp where the flyers got anything. A bogus 2nd goal allowed the flyers to take the game to OT in the first place.

Anyway--lots of really great comments in that thread--the Hitch-bashing is a joke. The guy is the best thing to happen to the jackets since Mr. Mac. He knows what he is doing--idiot fans who scrounge for free tickets don't have a voice anyway.
