Sending the Wrong Message

So the team and MLSE went in on a gift for Sundin and it wasn't the fu man chu I was hoping for.

The stick, puck and game sheet are a nice touch, but a golf trip? Is it just me, or does anyone else see the irony in this?

Isn't giving a golf trip to the captain of a hockey team with playoff aspirations like giving Rick Tocchet and Janet Gretzky a trip to their choice of Atlantic City or Vegas? Or Kevin Stevens a pile of cash and the keys to a Travelodge motel thanking Derek Jeter for his MVP season by renting him a luxury box so he can watch the world series?

Maybe that's the real challenge facing this club (and it certainly showed against the Avalanche) they'd rather be golfing.

  1. Just wanted to let you know that there is a new hockey web site on the Internet called

    Hockey-Recap produces a 1-page report (for free) on a daily basis which includes the previous day's statistics, leaders and other important elements such as standings, transactions, injuries and quite a bit more. There are also pages for all players which include game by game extended stats for 2006-2007 and will soon have career stats.

    You can subscribe to the site and receive a copy of the report in your email each morning or you can simply visit the site. There will be enhancements to the site every week.

    If you think this might be interesting to anyone you know, please forward this on to them. If you think this is interesting to your site's visitors (if you run a web site) I would definitely appreciate any help you can offer and in return, I can add a link for your site on our links page and perhaps something further if you wish.
