And for that matter, how is "any sport with a puck has to be about the best" a elbow-jab-worthy thing to say? Is it because "puck" rhymes with "fuck"? Granted, given the character in the song, it's probably intended (by Frank) to be a bad joke, but I'm just making sure I understand what the joke is.

My comprehension of Frank Zappa is kind of in a slump these days. I apologize to you all. I probably need a good shot of Lather.

More of an ad hominem.

Ovechkin should be a no-brainer for Hart Trophy this season

The Montreal Gazette
Published 15 hours ago


A lot of games remain to determine whether or not the Washington Capitals make it to the playoffs for the first time since 2003. But even as you read this, Alex Ovechkin is having his name engraved on the Rocket Richard Trophy for most goals and could also win the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL's top point-getter.

More importantly, even if the Capitals don't make the playoffs, Ovechkin's name will add a shine to the Hart Trophy. Everything Ovechkin brings to the table is what that trophy stands for. Win or lose, if Ovechkin is not the most valuable player to his team this season, who is? If he's not the NHL's most exciting player, who is? There is a misguided notion - an "unwritten rule" I heard someone mention on the telly a few days ago - that the league's MVP should come from a playoff team.

There was an uproar, of sorts, in 1954 when goaltender Al Rollins won the Hart Trophy even though his Chicago Blackhawks finished last in the six-team league. Andy Bathgate was the winner in 1958-59 when the New York Rangers were out of the playoffs, and Mario Lemieux was awarded it in 1987-88 when the Pittsburgh Penguins ended the season dead-last in the Patrick Division.

Ovechkin's selection this season would be a no-brainer. He is everything that is good about hockey, a delight to fans everywhere. Watching him makes people of all ages smile. He is The Game's soul, its brightest light.

Don't take my word for it. Instead, here's what Capitals goaltender Olaf Kolzig was saying after Ovechkin scored his 53rd and 54th goals of the season following the Capitals' 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday: "He's the best player I've ever played with. I've played with Jaromir Jagr. I've played with Peter Bondra. I've played with a number of guys. They all have their specific strengths, but this guy does it all." Added Washington coach Bruce Boudreau: "We see him every day, and there's been four or five occasions when you say: 'He can't top this, he can't be better than this, he can't do that.' And then he does. I can't say any more except 'holy smokes, he's not bad.' " You'd expect a teammate and his coach to say those things about Ovechkin, but here's what Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff was saying about him: "He is unbelievable," Ruff told Buffalo News columnist Bucky Gleason. "I admire the way he plays. I admire the enthusiasm. He can play a physical game. He can beat you one-on-one. He has a terrific shot. His energy and his passion, if you could bottle that and stick it inside your players, you would have an unbelievable team.

"He's so good for the game," Ruff added. "His energy is so good for the game. He's having so much fun playing the game.

"It's what the game is all about," Ruff added. "There's not a lot of fun moments in the game. Ovechkin makes it fun almost shift in, shift out. And he's not a fun guy to play against. When he hits you, he hurts you. What an element to have as a player!"

Yeah, and I'm a Buffalo Sabres fan, so I experienced it first hand earlier in the week when he basically single-handedly beat the Sabres. Amazing player though. He should win the Hart trophy.

Ouch! Just finished watching Penguins @ Capitols on television. With the score tied and less than a minute to go in regulation, the Caps put the puck into their own net, and a quick empty-netter followed.

Caps lose 4-2 :cry:
