This Week's Edition of "Between the Boards"
Well, welcome again
hockey fans to another edition of between the boards...
Well here it is my all-star edition of my weekly column
Lets star with my East Conf. All Star Team
G-Martin Brodeur- He has kept the Devils atop the East by himself he has a 2.00 GAA and his team only scores an average of just over 2 goals a game. He will go down when it is all down as one of the greatest goaltenders in NHL history.
D- Sergei Gonchar- His stats so far this year 10 goals with 26 helpers and also is a plus 20 and is a big reason why the Caps are becoming a top team in the East this season.
D-Wade Redden- has so far this year 6 goals with 20 helpers also a plus 12 making an Ottawa the best team in the East. He is a big force for the Sens on the blue line.
F-Glen Murray- has 23 goals with 24 helpers and also despite Boston's struggles have of late he is a plus 17. The Bruins need him to stay hot if they are to get back to way they played earlier in the year.
C-Mario Lemieux- he continues to show why is he is considered one of the greatest of all times leading the NHL in points with 68. If he would have stayed just alittle bit healthier wow he would have may be crushed Wayne's records.
F- Marian Hossa is having a great year and keep the bankrupt Sens atop the East he has so far this year 28 goals and 16 helpers to show he is one of the best snipers in the NHL.
Here is the Western Conf. team
G-Marty Turco- Do you think they miss Belfour in Dallas..I don't. Marty so far this year has incredible stats so far he has 20 wins, 1.83 GAA, .929 Save % and oh by the way 5 shutouts.
D-Nicklas Lidtrsom- has 11 goals and 22 helpers. He is also a plus 18 and shows why he will be a favorite again for the Norris trophy.
D- Ed Jovanovski- his stats are good not great but what he does on the ice and keeps the crease clear for the Canucks is showing why many consider him on of the best defenseman in hockey now and in the future. He has so far this year 4 goals and 27 helpers.
F- Markus Naslund- has so far this year 31 goals and 25 helpers. He is one of the main reasons the Canucks are considered an early favorite to may be win the West from the Red Wings. He is a pure goal Scorer.
F- Milan Hejduk- has been a very bright spot for an up and down season so far with the Avs. He has 24 goals and 26 helpers as well is plus 16.
C- Mike Modano is having a great season in helping Dallas get back to the top of the West and showing not making the playoffs last year was a fluke . He has 18 goals, 31 helpers and also a plus 16.
