That Pipeline is Flowing

4 posts in one day. That's gotta be a record for me.

As M71 from the Yost Post pointed out, the official website of the St. Michael's Buzzers is reporting that defenseman Brandon Burlon has committed to the Wolverines for the 2008 season. He's reported to be a "smart, mobile defenseman" who is offensively gifted.

He had 4-19--23 and 46 PIMs in 45 games back on the blueline for the Buzzers this year. He had 1 assist and 4 PIMs in 4 playoff games. Sounds like a nice pickup.

I'll try to dig up some more stuff on him after I'm finished drowning my sorrows about the end of the Red Wings' season.

Game 5 was the Wings undoing. So close to the 1-0 shutout, and then a failed clearing attempt later....

Since I can't stand the Dirty Ducks and the whiner Burke, go Senators.

Yeah I'm rooting for the Senators now too. If nothing else, Comrie would get a ring and Kunitz & Pronger wouldn't.

Game 4 hurt really bad. Game 5 was a killer.

Based on a quick look at the numbers, I'm Mr. Pessimist about next year....I just don't see how we have the money to improve the team.

There'll be a post on that soon.
