Jason Strudwick does an impression of a muppet

video

Nice game tonight. Interesting how similar and yet so far apart Sam Gagner and Robbie Schremp are, as both are about the same size, have good hands and aren't the fastest skaters and yet Schremp is still banging his head against a wall trying to make the team. From what I saw tonight, the guy really needs to get some first-step acceleration and a better sense of what to do when he doesn't have the puck. I don't think he played poorly though, as he had some chances, and I guess it's a bit unfair to compare him to Gagner. Theo Peckham had another solid game, along with Fernando Pisani and hell, even Dustin Penner. Although it wasn't his best night, Lubbie Visnovsky had a bag of tricks that included some nice tip passes on the powerplay. Sheldon Souray was actually really good defensively. And for the second game in a row in which he's listed on the roster, I never noticed Ryan O'Marra. Not even once.

That should be Strudwick's hockey card photo, cause that'll be his most common pose this year.

Upon reflection, it's obvious that Strudwick is making fun of some tiny (the hand gesture) agitator in the league that is all talk and no action (former teammate Sean Avery?).

That Strudwick seems like he would be a fun guy to have a beer with. I'd love to hear whatever story he was telling.

Either that, or he's having a slight fit of epilepsy.

He did pass his physical, correct?

That's exactly why he's been a fan favourite everywhere he's played. Trust me when I say he'll soon be a regular on local radion stations (if he isn't already). He's a funny dude.

Ah hahahaha! Yesssss! I caught that too... was almost rolling on the floor at the time.

He sure looks like a Jim Carrey from In Living Color there!
