my pals over at the NYT slapshot blog have doled out their half-playoff awards, and i must admit i'm all for'em...
[it's in the vein of my annual baby flames awards . last year i only gave out the dreamcrusher, though, so the link here goes to my original eponymous blog: the innaugural awards in 2006 came before hitthepost was founded.... but i digress.]
huge extra kudos to ryane clowe for captainning the "all-surprise team..."
i don't, currently, have a whole lot to add, other than pointing out there's been a lot of giordano 'news' lately, including one article one which reflects what a lot of blog-folk have been saying all year. then there's another one which patronizingly points out that gio ain't gonna be playin' with dion or regehr, even though fans are "pining" for the young blueliner.
he's still part of the solution, randy sportak (if that IS your real name)....
