Just reading this news makes my throat sting.

Clint Malarchuk - Blue Jackets' Goaltending Coach

I mean ... wow. Okay, what am I supposed to say about this? All I know about ol' Clint was what happened in 1989. Just ... eeeuuuugh. I think that's etched into my mind thanks to the somewhat recent barrage of other blogger entries about Malarchuk, like when that toy company released the figurine of the horrific accident.

Alright, I'm done. I'm shaking away that mental image. I'm not looking at the YouTube of what happened. Really, moving on.

I really wish him all the luck as the goaltending coach for the Jackets, and really hope that he'll have a positive effect on Leclair as he gets ready for his first official season as starter, and whoever is behind him (Norenna or Conklin). I wish I could say more, but my knowledge about Malarchuk is limited, and it seems like he's been pretty quiet ever since the one year stint as goalie coach in Florida in 2002-2003.

    Wasn't Marlachuk the one Luongo wanted to bring with him as part of a trade deal? If so, I think this speaks well of him. Glad to see the coaching staff is settled before the season starts.

    Now if we could just sign that shifty Zherdev. I have to wonder if it's him or his agent that is holding things up more?

    Egads, I just watched that Milarchuk freak accident again yesterday. Reading your post made my throat sting as well!
    Good to see he's alright though...
    Nice blog! I'll add it to my roll!

    I have no idea how to send you an email (couldn't find a link), so I have to post a comment to you.

    There's a thread going around the blogoshpere about "5 weird things about yourself." It started today, and I got tagged. My post is up and now I'm tagging you.

    I can't wait to read what you put up. My post is here, if you want to see it.
