Another attempt to make some kind of sense of what's going on east of the Dniester. Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan come in for special attention.

Send soothing whisky, please




The Habs (the Montreal Canadiens, for the unitiated) lost 6-5 to Toronto last night and are, thus, out of the playoffs.


A real roller-coaster season comes to an end, with big highs and even bigger lows.


Highs:


  • the play of Chris Higgins and the whole "CAT Line"

  • Saku Koivu is still the man

  • Sheldon Souray setting the record for power-play goals by a defenceman

  • Jarolslav Halak showed the makings of a good goalie

Lows:



  • we're out of the &!^#%! playoffs

  • Souray is likely to leave the Habs in the off-season

  • Alex Kovalev played like a twit for a great deal of the season

Oh well. I'll now be cheering for Canada's team in the World Women's Hockey Championship - go get 'em!

What about the Anaheim Ducks? Isn't that a highlight? I am insulted that you haven't updated your blog to recognize such an event. Where are the buzkashi updates? ;) Love the blog!
