Sidney Crosby returns to the NHL tomorrow for his first game since being concussed. While the guy is good for the league by giving it a “face”, I’ve always felt his attitude was a bit “meh”. The league needs more clean-cut personalities.
With basketball on hiatus, this is hockey’s chance to solidify itself as a far superior league… until next year’s CBA debacle.
Anyway, onto the cards.
Goaltender Tim Thomas (base card). Little did anyone know when this set was released, that he’d become the goaltender of the year and lead his team to a Cup.
Marc-Andre Fleury (base card). Just a few years before the Bruins won the Cup, this guy helped his team to a championship as well… Could there be a trend in this pack?
Another player who played in the finals… but didn’t quite win. Ryan Kesler (base card).
Joe Thornton (base card). Doesn’t quite have the “C” on his chest in this photo… but he is playing for the Sharks.
Andrei Markov (base card). Injury prone, but a pretty high scoring defenseman.
Good cards today. I’d write more, but I’m not feeling all that great. Maybe I’ll elaborate on things tomorrow.
