zzbottom Posted February 4, 2017 Share Posted February 4, 2017 I've literally never started a thread before so it's fitting that the one I actually did start had nothing to do with the Canucks. Peter Budaj won't win the Vezina and likely won't even be nominated. Largely because he will no longer be a starter in a few weeks and, even if he were to keep his position for the rest of the year, nobody knows who the &^@# Peter Budaj is. I assume the average hockey fan probably thought he washed out of the league ages ago. But the dude not only stepped into a role that was seemingly impossible to replace but he's done so in spades. And it's a brilliant story for those who enjoy the ballad of a comeback kid. I don't care for the Kings whatsoever but I live in Southern California and I can attest that Budaj's season isn't even a blip on the radar and that's a real damn shame. Kudos to him and even if some of his numbers are a reflection of the team around him, he's going to get an opportunity to at least timeshare for another franchise for the next few years. And that's a good thing. Hockey is a sport that allows those gifted enough to play it professionally many opportunities to play it well. I hoped to accomplish nothing with this thread. Love you all.
