Mike Brown Traded to Anaheim

The Vancouver Canucks traded ex-Wolverine Mike Brown to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for someone named Nathan McIver.

Anaheim is getting harder and harder to hate. Brown becomes the third ex-Wolverine on the Ducks, who also have Andrew Ebbett and Brendan Morrison. But then I remember that they have Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, and they're not as hard to hate.

The Ducks are now the third team in the NHL with a trio of Michigan forwards. The New York Islanders (Tambellini, Comrie, Hilbert) and Calgary Flames (Nystrom, Moss, Cammalleri) could also put out a line of former Wolverines if they were so inclined.

Brown has one assist and 85 PIMs in 20 games this year.

I watch so much NHL hockey and there are more and more NCAA Division one hockey players playing hockey in the NHL all the time.

I have hard time hating any of the college kids no matter where they come from. One of my favorites is Timmy Thomas the ex Catamount. Isn't he a Michigan Native as well? This is the best time of year. The days are getting longer the hockey season is winding down into March Madness. Yeeeaaahhhh....
