Alyssa Milano is on my screen!!!
I swear my first thought was "OMG she's going to start fucking her way through hockey players now!!!" sadly, with more of an element of excitement than "eww". It's kind of practical to have a winter sport and a summer sport, she can fuck the baseball players in the winter and the hockey players in the summer!
And then Maaaaaaaaaaaaaarian appeared on my TV and I popped up to watch. :D They were not very nice and asked him about possible impending trades and UFA and contracts, but he didn't seem annoyed by it. He looks so much older now. :\
Anyway, perhaps the excitement of seeing Marian has died down and I can go back to sleep now.
[Edit: So! Quotes from Vlasic that shed more light on why he was sent to Worcester. From here:
“It’s part of the process of being a pro — that’s what they told me,” Vlasic said of the trip here, “and that’s how I’m looking at it. I’ll get some time on the power play, and being in a game will be good for me instead of just having three days off.
“I’ll just have to do so well that one game’s all I play here. I have to make sure they want me back.”
So they do want him to be more offensive! I'm actually fine with him taking the hit on +/- earlier in the season if it contributed to the development of his offensive skills because I think he's more than capable of doing well in that aspect. Hopefully the baby Sharks draw lots of penalties and he gets more opportunities to practice. :P]
