My absence the last month was due to just a crazy schedule. But I’m back! And I’m sick to my stomach about what is going on in baseball right now with these mega contracts. Let’s take a look at them and compare them to hockey “mega deals.’
In their 4-1 victory over the Washington Capitals, the surging Colorado Avalanche picked up a beautiful insurance marker from Gabriel Landeskog, the youngest captain in the NHL. Not only is he the youngest captain in the NHL today, but the youngest ever in NHL history, eclipsing the previous record holder, Sidney Crosby. On top of that, he scored his goal after blowing past Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin, who earned the “C” at age 24, and is part of a slew of young NHL captains in the League right now. While many teams look to the aged veteran to lead the team, many have decided that a breath of fresh air is what their team needs in the captaincy. Not all these young captains have worked out, but many of them have been successful.
The Bruins struggled to find chemistry on the road this past week and went 1-2-0 in three games.
The first of a back-to-back home-at-home series the Penguins host the Columbus Blue Jackets as they officially welcome them to the Eastern Conference.
