Was on vacation and earlier this week mind drifted off to the team. Started thinking about Drew, his rookie season and each one thereafter.
Then foreshadowed his career in my head.
Ran numbers of average goals and assists, minutes played and will play, playoff games, his big moments coming up, the number of Cups, Olympic and other medals, his durability, on and off season preparation as he grows older, his maturity, when he will hit his peak, comparisons that are fair – Lidstrom, Bourque, Niedermayer, Bobby Orr, name another D man who was as aggressive as Drew at this young of an age and thrived doing so while being solid all around defensively – did they break the mold with him? Is he in a class of his own? Has he only began to tap his tremendous potential?
Are we being objective? Is he now an elite defenseman and will be one of the best all time?
Lots of questions that occupied my thoughts for about 30 minutes until…”Bobby…Bobby? Bobby!”
What is it with chicks that they have pressing questions that can’t wait right when you’re day dreaming about important stuff. Women…like there is a big difference between being 10 minutes late or 30.
