This is Brett Callighen as a Rhode Island Red (seriously) about 32 years ago. Callighen is an exceptional example of the absolute truth that you just never know where you’re going to find an NHL player.
Maybe I’m reading too much between the lines, but it doesn’t appear that Souray is all too happy with the prospect of Lubo on the PP. Check his interview on the Oilers website. When approached with the question about what Vishnovsky brings to the lineup, Souray seems to go way off topic, talking about how the team has to be cautiously optimistic.
Anyone think I’m nuts? That’s pretty much all I got out of that interview. And that can’t be good if there’s bumping egos already.
dorito: I think it’s healthy. Souray’s bread and butter is the powerplay and that’s the way it is for Visnovsky, too.
They aren’t terribly similar players imo (Souray isn’t the puck handler Visnovsky is and Lubo has an excellent shot but Souray’s shot is death) but if Souray feels challened in an area of strength that can only be a good thing.
Doritogrande: In the journal, Souray mentions how the Oilers improved their blue line by adding an all-star defenceman.
I believe you are looking into it too much
The worst-case scenario is that Souray demands a trade and we end up getting rid of that huge albatross of a contract…
…hey, anybody want to key Sheldon’s car?
First the Pepsi cap and now the Corn Flakes Rooster….Nice.
