I always wondered why he left early.  I thought most of the guys that leave early have a pretty quick timeline to play in the NHL and he had no assurances that he was going to be called up.

To continue the digression, the Islanders AHL affiliate is the Tigers.  Now that he's with a team that can't concievably be turned into an animal face I would assume he'll change soon.

Has anyone seen a Michigan hockey helmet up close?  I was surprised to see that it is actually maize tape that makes up the winged helmet.  Thought they would be painted.  Oh well.

they taped the hockey helmuts.  they may be painted today, but bynow they are chipped and scratched, etc.  so they used tape to make it look good for tv, since they probalby did not have enough time for the paint to dry before hand.


or at least that is my take on it.
