  • Bubble's Wild Art Gallery: Grand Opening


    For some reason though, I never got around to it, but now, back by popular demand (by popular, I mean Bryan... come to think of it, maybe ''un-popular'' is more accurate here, because of all the enemies he's been making recently), I'm back in business! 

    These drawings are not supposed to look good. Hell, they're done on paint by a severely artistically-challenged guy. These are just meant to entertain, to get you guys smiling, maybe even chuckling to start off your day when you log on to HW in the morning. It'll also serve as a sort of water-cooler-type space to talk about the game that was played the previous night, the game that will be played in the near future, or anything that's going on around the league.

    Let's open this up shall we?

    There's one save in particular where he absolutely robbed Ryan Callahan with his paddle right on the doorstep, in a save that could very well be one of the Wild's saves of the year, especially considering it was done during a 1-0 Rangers lead. Theo came up huge to stop the team's bleeding in a well-needed rebound win after being clobbered by the Islanders the night before. Simply amazing.

    Jose has now won 4 of his last 5 starts, allowing 12 goals on 201 shots (that's right, an average of 40 shots per game... four wins...), which gives him a .940 SV% in those 5 starts. Those 5 starts included a 46 save performance in a 3-2 OT win against the Ducks, a 4-3 win against the Avalanche in which he stopped 38 pucks and allowed the third goal with mere seconds left to play in the game, and of course, last night's 3-1 40-save win in which his team was doubled in shots on goal. I'm going to make a bold statement here and say that Jose Theodore is the best back-up goaltender in the league right now. These are the games in which we need big performances the most, when we rest our starting goaltender, and Theo always seems to be able to deliver. I can't believe Washington didn't hang on to this guy for at least another year.

    Well, that was the grand opening. I expect to do these quick little posts any time I can, and I also expect to get my Thought Bubble feature back in the mix as well, it's been a while since I got around to this to. I'm a very busy guy with my studies and whatnot, but luckily, I'm also a champion procrastinator!

    Have a nice day, Wilderness.
