Larry Brooks just nominated Chris Chelios to run USA Hockey (login info.). Run it? He might still be playing for them in the next Olympics. I really didn’t think he looked especially slow in Turin. At least no slower than the rest of his team.
Oh well. At least we can agree that USA Hockey GM Don Waddell needs some help with the whole Olympic hockey thing.
Oh. By the way, in case you didn’t hear, Sweden won the gold.
The Times had a really nice article about how the Czech team, aka Rangers East, were pulling for Sweden, backstopped by Ranger Henrik Lundqvist.
Also, unrelated to anything else, Larry Brooks retracted his report that Islander great Mike Bossy wanted money to come to a celebration of the Islander dynasty. I didn’t see much written about it, but I figure it’s good karma to broadcast the correction.
