its MHH lockout week and its up to the
scabs fans to post about hockey so we dont all go through withdrawls and what-not. so natrually, lets talk about the atom bomb Sacco & Sherman & Co. has dropped on us all...
no doubt about it. Golden Boy Gabriel Landeskog and new captain of the Colorado Avalanche will be the next Colorado sports superstar. in his rookie year at the big league level, he's managed to rock the hockey world and emerge as the best player in his class. let us take a look at his many milestones and remind ourselves why;
+ youngest Swede ever to play an NHL game.
+ lead all rookies in takeaways.
+ lead all rookies in hits.
+ lead all rookies in shots.
+ broke Peter Stastny 's franchise record for shots by a rookie.
+ only member of rookie class to lead team in goals.
+ youngest in franchise history to score a game winning goal. LANDESKOGING!!!
+ lead all Avs with a +20 rating.
+ only 82-game iron man on the team.
+ 2012 rookie scoring champion.
+ 2012 Calder Trophy recipient.
+ youngest captain in NHL history.
i am very stoked that Landy is our captain and hes obviously a future household name. i hope he captains the Avs for the next 20 years and leads us back to glory.
by the way, these milestones he has achieved are just what i can think of at the moment, im sure there's a few im missing.
let us reflect, and discuss...
