Sunday night babbling.

Sunday, October 08, 2006
In no particular order, a few things of interest that are picking at my mind on a lazy, one-game Sunday night ...

-Fun little fact, Blue Jackets' fans: regardless of whether the CBJ win, lose, or OTL against the Phoenix Coyotes tomorrow night, they're going to be 1st in the Central Division until at least Wednesday night, when the Coyotes go to Detroit.

Savour it while you can! Either that or start buying your playoff tickets in advance.

Haha ... ha ... haaa ... yeah, I crack myself up. I bet I crack up Red Wings' fans even more, too.

-Are there really no active Phoenix Coyotes or Chicago Blackhawks bloggers out there at all? All I was able to find was two blogs from that Most Valuable Network website, and they weren't exactly active blog material. The Coyotes one is condemned because the owner has no more time for it, and the Blackhawks one has seven entries in all between January and now. People, if anyone out there knows of any blogs for these teams, let me know so I can tack them on to the blogroll. The Coyotes I'm in no real rush to find one for, however lacking blogs for a division rival seems sort of sad.

-I wanted to mention this earlier in the week, but had no way to prove it. But then I saw that Alanah over at VCOE stumbled across a YouTube clip of Center Ice's new standby music and graphic, courtesy of her finding it via The Ice Block, and just had to mention it and show off the small clip. Whoever works at Sports InDemand must have one twisted sense of humor.

"So ... hey, baby. Is that a bag of pucks in your pocket? Or are you just happy to see me?"

-Now that Nikolai Zherdev is back in Columbus and it's presumed he'll be in the line-up tomorrow night against Phoenix, who gets scratched out of the line-up? All that comes to mind are either Alex Svitov or Mark Hartigan, but how does that work considering they're both more of the center-position quality while Zherdev is a right winger? It's a bit of a curious conundrum that needs some solving. But with less than 24 hours before the game, there's most likely going to be something out of The Columbus Dispatch or the CBJ website itself concerning any scratches or players being assigned to Syracuse to make room for him.

    I think you'll find the pride of parma, dan fritsche, getting scratched or sent to the 'cuse.

    He's on a two-way contract.

    Good point about Fritsche. I was actually a little hesitant to consider him just because he's a local boy favorite. That, and he has actually been gelling pretty well with Malhotra and Chimera, who had a huge impact on keeping the Blackhawks in check at the end of the game Saturday.

    Thanks for keeping things rolling over the weekend. Had a wedding that took up the last 96 hours, fun stuff.

    I've tried to figure out who gets bumped for Zherdev as well and I haven't found a suitable name yet.

    If Fritsche goes, who plays on the third line? Carter, or Zherdev?

    What about Geoff Platt? Yeah, he wasn't active last game, but will he stick with the big club? That still doesn't solve the lineup conundrum.

    Can Carter or Modin play center? If so, move Platt to Syracuse, Hartigan to healthy scratch, Svitov to 1st line, Zherdev to second line???

    I guess we'll find out at 7 for sure.
