I guess you have to give Dean Lombardi credit for being able to develop players. I mean I haven’t seen many players out of San Jose who are superstars. Probably the two strongest ones in the organization that Doug Wilson drafted are Logan Couture and Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Marleau was drafted by Lombardi but I can’t say that was a good choice considering the long term results. Doug Wilson is good at getting star players from other teams and keeping them though. Case in point: Joe Thornton and Dan Boyle. Thornton even took a pay cut to stay here. I guess it is debatable as to which skill is more valuable.
Man, it looks more and more like the Los Angeles Kings are going to go to the Stanley Cup Finals. And even worse, they’ll probably win too. This is infuriating mostly because their General Manager (Dean Lombardi) and their head coach (Darryl Sutter) both were on the Sharks and we fired them. Neither of those guys are supposed to be winning let alone talented with another team. Doug Wilson for life ya’ll.
Another thing I’ve been having a lot of lately has been Cheesesteaks. Making them at home won’t help with my health at all, but at least it should help save me money.
