Well, on a totally different tangent...

Mike Chen had a "crappy player pick'em" this season where one was supposed to venture who would be the best-worst player out of a field of players picked by friends and fellow bloggers.

Yours truly picked the winner -- TB's own Eric Perrin. Me and Mike had discussed earlier in the season about the fact crappy players can become uncrappy and would they be disqualified if they started seeing playing time on the top two lines?

If I set the rules, Eric would have been disqualified. I'll take what I can get though :) Thank you, Eric, for proving me right and going from bottom-line NHL castoff to valuable member of the Lightning (as I figured you would).
