Sutter hit video / Marleau extended / Naslund optimistic

I have not been watching the Super Series between Canada and Russia, but when I hear about Alexei Cherepanov getting a tad concussed because of a Brandon Sutter hit, well then I want to see that. Here it is below. Can you believe he got a penalty for that? I can just hear Don Cherry screaming "Don't go in the trolley tracks!" or "Keep your head up!" That was a great, thunderous clean hit by Sutter, and Cherepanov is going to have to avoid cutting in the middle when/if he makes the NHL. He is out for the rest of the series.

The Sharks have signed Patrick Marleau to a 2 year extension today. This officially ends the rumors that he would be moved and also makes Eklund even more full of shit.
Did any of us smart hockey people really bite on the fact that the Sharks were shopping him anyway?

**UPDATE*** US$12.6-million, two-year contract extension.

TSN had a great interview with Naslund recently, and Naslund explained why his production dipped so much last season. He mentioned 'adjusting to the new defensive system' and 'not shooting the puck enough'.
To be honest, I just don't want to see him do that little cut in the middle of the slot and waste a shot of his trademarks. People are always standing in that shooting lane now because it's almost as if they scouted him.
Naslund is very excited about the coming season, as am I.
He also mentioned that he will keep playing until he feels he cannot play at a competitive level. That raises questions about whether or not he will retire after next season as was speculated. This is the final year of his contract.

Excellent hit on that dipstick.. Yeah, you slew-foot someone and then cut in what the hell do you expect?

Not much of a "super" series so far.. What the hell happened to the russkies?

I know! Canada doesn't even have to take out one of their best player's ankles with a slash this time around!

It would be interesting to see the NHLer's go at it. Maybe a little more close of a series.

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn a couple of cents for that: I would feel happy and rewarded (because I realy need it!!!) if you did click it, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. I, for instance, choose immediatly to click on one of your ads, in case you have them. To do so or not, that's the whole beauty of it all, however, blogocitizens must unite also by clicking-helping eachother when we know cybermegacorporations profit from our own selfishness regarding to that simple click.

About this I must say, by my own experience, that no one realy cares (maybe a few) about this apeal I make, still I believe in my Work and Dreams and thus I'll keep on apealing and searching so strong is my will.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
