SHOOOOOOOT!!!

For all our excitement over those Schremp and Mikhnov videos that made the blog circuit this summer, it can be easy to forget that we've already got a kid who can snap it like Robbie and dismantle a defence like Alexei — and he's doing it at the NHL level, no less. Ladies and gentlemen, the electrifying Ales Hemsky. Fuck, is he good.

Gorgeous stuff.

Makes the zero-for-five on the 5 on 3's against Carolina a little more understandable. By neccessity, everyone has to stand around and move the puck, which takes Ales' skating out of the equation.

That gave me goosebumps. Beautiful.

I could watch the one where he fells Lundqvist like a dead poplar 500 times.

It's true, he is good. I believe I had him in a pool last year and he came through for me.

Every time I see that closeup of Legace just after the goal in game 6, I can't help but think that it's the look of utter defeat.

He'd better get at least 25 this year.

"Remember the Name" by Fort Minor - great tune.

Man, he scored some beauties - imagine what he could do if he did shoot more!

Love it.

Hey any of the CiO guys...I want to contact Mike W to see if he'd care to take in a Red Sox game with myself and the notorious Eau de Chacin. Since none of you cats have emails on line, can someone get Mike to drop me one at mc79hockey@gmail.com?
