ESPN.com has a nice piece on Theo Fleury playing hockey in Ireland.
He seems to have his demons under control, plus he’s treated like a rock star there.
All in all, it seems like a really good match for him. He’s doing something he loves, but not under a crazy spotlight.
He must be doing well there. Wednesday was the team’s first regulation loss in 10 games.
Speaking of 10 games, how freaking hot is Red Wings goalie Manny Legace with his 10 wins for October?
What’s next for Legace?
Suing Reggie Jackson for the right to be called Mr. October.
You know, I’ve really always used Legace as an example of the prototypical backup goalie. A guy who’s OK not getting a lot of work. A guy who’s happy being second banana. And if you had asked me, I would have told you he didn’t have the makeup to be a successful starting goalie.
I just needed to get that off my chest.
