Petr is one step removed from being a defenseman

From Nabokov return coming soon:

Evgeni Nabokov might return to the lineup for the Sharks' home match Wednesday against Nashville, but the more likely scenario is that the goaltender comes back Saturday against Minnesota.

Thank God! Schaefer's been on the front line for way too long already. :P

Flan, Maria, have you seen? Fedoruk's been playing on the Ducks top line with Selanne and McDonald and doing really well! He's a really fast skater. Fedoruk Is Happy to Assist:

Todd Fedoruk isn't about to proclaim himself as a scoring power forward in the mold of a John LeClair or a Todd Bertuzzi, but the 6-foot-2, 241-pound left wing is showing why there's more to his game than dropping his gloves.

Lately, I've been getting more and more concerned about Petr's play. Not that he's been playing badly; he doesn't have that many goals/points, but he's always been a streaky kinda' guy. Anyway, my worry is that he's one step removed from being a defenseman.

Let's look at the evidence: he plays the point on the PP, he often skates backwards (well), he blocks shots on the PK, he's often the last man back and last night he stripped the puck from a forward preventing a good scoring chance, he takes a ton of hooking penalties, he leaps in the air to keep pucks in the zone, err, and other disturbing stuff that I can't remember.

[Edit: Oh man, our starting QB (who was our 4th string) is a rodeo cowboy and our backup is "The Bachelor". If it were any other team, fans would be hysterical (for a different reason).]

So proud... But I still miss him so frigging much :(

Hehe yay baby Schaefer! He's been playing well! :)

I prefer sniper Petr myself, but I can live with Special(ist) Petr. Even with mad hair.

I'm really uncomfortable with how comfortable he is skating backwards!!!

It pisses me off how much useless information my brain still has on the Ducks. It should've been purged years ago.

Jesus. Years. It's been that long.

Dude, did you know that Andy McDonald is 28? 28!!! WTF?!

they accidentally multiplied his age by 2. it happens.

He's pretty much THE reason I watch so many Anaheim games. I just wish he could be doing it HERE.

Awwwwwwwww! I think you guys don't really have the slot for him though, do you? That's why I didn't feel too bad when Miikkachu got traded, because at least he'd get to play.

Nooooooo, he's supposed to be the... the soft, defensively reluctant finesse player! He can't undergo mid-life role transformations like this!

well, he's always been defensive minded because he's always wanted the puck. But I think he just has so much fun on the ice now, rolling around and such, that he's even trying defense. Perhaps hoping if he makes a good play he will be equally rewarded.

He's only turning 29!

Dude, the cross checking of the ref was the best. It was so blatant! And then after that he just keeps grinning and stuff.

I still don't understand why he did it, but that goes for the hair, or any number of other things he does.

I have that whole sequence archived for posterity!

Bwahahahaha, I love your summary!

We have a checking Czech. They're not so bad.

*grins* That's such an awesome picture of Devo.

"What do you mean? That is my sexy look!"
