Letter to Bucci

January 10, 2006

From a Nashville fan:

Big Bad John,  When will Tomas Vokoun start getting some recognition, after he wins gold in Turin maybe? The guy doesn’t even know what a rebound is!


Marcus Newman
Mount Juliet, Tenn.

Nashville fans, relax! The hockey community knows how good Tomas Vokoun is. They know that Marek Zidlicky would be the best defenseman on over half of the teams in the NHL. The Preds need another big-time scorer down low, especially someone with size and grit, but they are among the best in the NHL. I hope they are aggressive come trade deadline time.

Iwo:  Interesting. I not only saw multiple rebounds from Vokoun Friday night, I saw at least three very long rebounds the Wings could have capitalized on. 

And woops…second writer we’ve quoted today with a Norris prediction for Lidstrom.  They must be convulsing in Toronto.

Norris: Nicklas Lidstrom. Quarterbacks the best power play in the league, plays 28:34 a night, gets the puck on net low. You don’t hear the puck smack off the back glass when Nick Lidstrom shoots it from the point. A calming, classy influence. If actor Jimmy Stewart came back as a hockey player, he would be Nicklas Lidstrom.
