I currently need a bigger boat..., don't kill me <.<;
I don't expect Cheechoo to stick with the Stars, but his tryout brought up a question I should bring to the people who actually know him. What’s the convention on his Nickname? Cheech? Cheecher? Cheechy? Cheechs? or does it riff of Johnathan? Or does he have a nickname like Bubbles or something?
On a side note, I think Niemi was a good signing for you cats, especially if y'all were determined to get rid of Nabby. I've always hated facing Nabokov, so I don't know if it's good that y'all cut ties with him. I can definitely see the allure of going the cheap route, since the last few Stanley Cup champs haven't done it with the big name money goalie. Lord knows that Nabby and Turco seem to share that stigma of good regular season guys who never got it done in the post season, whether or not it's justified (Marty's 3 SOs in a series loss to Vancouver implies it wasn't his fault totally...). I'd add Giguerre into that list, but he got it done one year. Of course, having Niedermayer and Pronger = probable success anyway...
Do y'all feel like Nabby was successful due to your system/quality of defensemen?
