WTHII Hostile Takeover of the All Star Game

We Pick the All Stars AND We Sing the National Anthems

As our fives of fans may have noticed, the WTHII crew took a bit of a break for the holidays. Mike Vamosi kept pumping out recaps because he is a robot that knows nothing else. The rest of us? We enjoyed time with our families (robots don’t have families), drinking with old buddies (robots have no need for drinks or joy), or just generally sat around being useless human beings for a few weeks.

Now that we have been thrust back into the real world, we realize a whole lot of hockey has taken place, including, but not limited to, a thrilling Winter Classic. This time of year also means that only a couple days are left for fans to inevitably screw up the All Star voting, as they are known to do in all sports. Fans completely screwing up All Star lineups does not just stop at the NBA and the MLB. The NHL has to get into the fray as well. While the NBA has on more than one occasion had players such as Allen Iverson (who Brett shamelessly voted for since his rookie year) and Yao Ming get starting nods while playing zero minutes in a season, the NHL will more than likely see a Sid Crosby suffering from jelly brain and a Ovi suffering from what we can only assume is skating induced narcolepsy.

–          The return of Sid the Kid

Could the most anticipated return in hockey be upon us?  Sidney Crosby has not ruled himself out for Friday’s game against Dallas.  Crosby was with the team for their games against San Jose and Los Angeles, but returned to Pittsburgh to meet with concussion specialists.  Crosby has been sidelined since January 5th.  “I’m just going to get a good week of practice here and see how everything goes,” Crosby said.

–          San Jose hands LA their fifth straight loss

The Kings picked a bad time to go into a slump.  With Eastern Conference powerhouses Pittsburgh coming to town and a trip to division and conference rival San Jose, the Kings had to bring their A game.  They failed to do so.  The Kings lost to Pittsburgh 3-2 in a shootout and lost 4-2 to the Sharks last night.  Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Dan Boyle, and Logan Couture all had goals in the Sharks win. Antti  Niemi added 29 saves to the mix as well.  The Kings have dropped five straight.

–   Paille injured after being struck in face

Boston forward Daniel Paille was hit in the face with a Steve Staios shot in Monday’s 6-2 win over the Islanders.  Staios was immediately helped off the ice and will be seen by specialists.  He has two goals in thirteen games this season.  Check out the video for yourself here:
