Getting To Know These Guys

Too cold for shirtless hugs.Despite the late arrival of the host and a slow kitchen in delivering some above average steaks, a good time was had by all at the House that Jordan Built. What was unexpected was how good the entertainment of the game itself was going to be.

Patrick Kane
Jonathan Toews
Nikolai Khabibulin
Martin Havlat

These are guys, that if John McDonough does the job he is expected to do, could very soon be recognizable names in this town. Perhaps, even recognizable faces.

This page doesn't claim to know a huge amount about hockey strategy or skills. But it doesn't take much to see that Mr. Kane has become a very good skater and stick handler in his 18 years on this earth. And, when you worry about his size, you get quickly reminded he's not done growing yet.

The crowd realized it, too. Despite only 10 to 12 thousand people in attendance, people were into the game. Martin Havlat got a post-game standing O for scoring 2 goals in his first game back from injury. And Nikolai "Bulin Wall" Khabibulin (pretty weak nickname) got two assists from the crease.

With Friday's game on TV, likely in high definition, this team is worth the time to watch.
