Carey Price was named the first star of the week, beating out Nikolai Khabibulin and Jaromir Jagr.
Please note the press release clearly contains a typo. It reads October 31st, 2011 when it should state 2001. Silly to think an editor missed this, Jagr would be 39 in 2011 and Nikolai would nearly be 39 too. They'd both be on Tobalev's hockey pool team...
Diaz to share accolade
Carey will surely acknowledge his whole team in discussing the honour, but special thought to Raphael Diaz with whom he switched positions for a few minutes in the game before last.
Plekanec can stuff it
Plekanec, on the other hand may receive special extra mention as the faceoff "specialist" who seemed to be on Khabibulin's side in this race for late October honours.
Did the people who make these choices watch these games, by the way? Silly question, of course they didn't.
If they had, I would ask them if they'd ever had such hilarious highlights in a first star's video montage before...
