Friday\'s Baker\'s Dozen - 1\/27\/2012


Time for my weekly Baker’s Dozen.
  1. The All-Star Game is in my hometown of Ottawa and one of the great joys of an Ottawa winter is skating on the Ottawa Canal; The longest skating rink in the world. Click on the photo above to get a glimpse.

  2. March 20, April 5 and April 7. Mark those dates! They are the last 3 games between the Sharks and Kings.

  3. Todd McLellan who is in Ottawa representing the Western Conference as a coach in the All-Star Game just gets it. Just getting it meaning understanding hockey from a technical and tactical standpoint. His best asset aside from his incredible preparation is his ability to communicate and deal with people.
    #TheStatsSpeakForThemselves

    • 179-77-37 Regular Season with San Jose
    • Sharks have been to the Conference Finals 3 times in their history, twice with McLellan
    • Won the Stanley Cup as an Assistant Coach in Detroit
    • Won the 2003 Calder Cup with Houston as the Head Coach

  4. Last year at the All-Star break, how many people picked Boston to win the Stanley Cup?
    #SoYou’reSayingWeHaveAChance_Eh!

  5. Pavelski on the difference of losing to Vancouver in regulation or Edmonton in the Shootout, “A loss is a loss and it hurts either way.”

  6. Sharks have 5 situations of back-to-back games left this season. They have two days between games on 3 occasions. They have 3 days between games 1 time – and it’s after the Phoenix game Feb 4. Yes, the Sharks get 6 days off for the All-Star break, play 3 games then get 3 days off?

  7. I played on the same team as Owen Nolan in Quebec and San Jose. He was one of the fiercest competitors I have ever played with but this week it’s his famous goal at the All-Star game in San Jose that gets the nod for BakesTakes13:

  10. Earlier this week Joey Crabb and Carl Gunnarsson of the Leafs had a little disagreement in practice that led to the gloves being dropped? So if the NHL eliminates fighting, what happens if two players on the same team fight in practice.
    #NoInstigatorRuleInPractice!

  11. Speaking of fights, I didn't have many fight cards when I played because, well, I figured out early I could take a punch and my marshmallow punches weren't helping matters. However, I can tell you that I fought the very tough, and crazy Gregg Smythe in practice one day and I declared myself the victor.

    In a two-on-two down-low drill in practice I snuck in behind the much bigger Smythe (6'4", 240lbs) and set a soft pick. He turned, ran into me, got mad, crosschecked me not once but twice. I shared an expletive or two and crosschecked him back. He said 'let's go' in not so many words so I dropped my gloves and punched him in the face a couple of times.Players on the team jumped in immediately knowing this was a miss-match of huge proportions as a tough guy was fighting a rookie out of college, and they figured it was easier to break the fight up early than scrape me off the ice.

    Alas, because of the quick decision, I was pronounced the victor. Smythe's nickname was Big Bird and he told me if the fight had gone on longer he would have beaten me up. I said, "I know, but it didn't and I won".
    #DidIMentionWeWereRoommatesToo

  12. For the All-Star Break I would like to give the 2nd Star to the San Jose Sharks organization for the tremendous product they have put on the ice for such a long time. Every year the Sharks are in the mix at the top of the standings and are in contention for The Stanley Cup.
    #LotsOfTeamsWouldLoveToHaveTheSharksRecordThePastDecade

  13. And 1st Star goes to the awesome San Jose Sharks fans. The players today say the same thing the players said when I played for the team back in the 1990’s – Sharks fans are the best. Players love playing here, in front of loud fans at HP and while the expectations are high I know the players want to win the Cup for their loyal fan base.
