Quick hits Friday

At 12-6-2 Timmy Thomas's record over 82 games would work out to 49-25-8 or 106 points... not too shabby!

Phil Kessel - 5 goals 4 assists minus 8 and awful at face off's doesn't block shots, doesn't hit.
Wayne Primeau 5 goals 4 assist minus 5 and acceptable at face off's, playing against the other teams top lines, does block shots, does hit....
Phil Kessel Average time on ice 12:55
Wayne Primeau Average time on ice 15:19

Looking for a good time? Go read the comments on TSN's site on the articles after a Toronto loss....priceless!

Thanks largely to Toronto the B's are 7-3-1 in their division. Divisional play was their Achilles last season.

For nevets: The boys are 1 point out of 8th place with two games in hand on this team, the Islanders.

Maybe this is better: They are 10 points out of second place with 4 games in hand on this team, the Thrashers. (I will help the slow with math - if they win their games in hand they would be 2 points out of second place in the division)

If they continue to win 70 percent of their games as they have lately I may have raise my expectations from a 6-8 seed to a team that could get a round or two in the playoffs.

Hopefully on the 12 days of Christmas Timmy gets a rest because he has been delivering the presence.

NJ - should be a great game!

neb, I saw your post and was getting ready to debate some of your ideas with you. Unfortunately I agree with all that you said - maybe next time.

Kessel does have alot af developing to do yet and mellow yellow and Primeau do deserve their ice time right now.

Kessel is being eased into the bigs slowly which is correct. He is still getting more ice time than Big Joe did his 1st year and Joe had 3 times the talent - he just has to be patient: his time will come when he earns it.

Behind perhaps Kipprusoff and Brodeur I think The Trapper is the premeir goalie in the league!

Thanks for the playoff update, Neb!

I also read the TSN stuff, its always interesting.

With the exception of the two points they STOLE in Montreal, they have been amazing to watch. I actually believe in this team again.
