Thought everyone here could use a little chuckle. ;)

Nice story on former Devil David Hale, who hasn't scored a goal in 230 NHL games so far. Looks like he's turning into a cult figure with the Flames fans.

"I postulated that should Hale see the sign during warm-up, he would go back to the dressing room with renewed confidence and probably turn into the most prolific scoring defenceman in the NHL. Or at least score his first NHL goal, a.k.a. a Hale Storm."

Hale and hearty fans look for No. 1

Sounds fairly tounge in cheek and deprecating to me.

In any case I hope he can make a career in the NHL and be a solid if unspectacular dman for years to come (and of course be terrible against the devils).

Hale is a great guy. I hope he finally scores lol. Sounds like how I was when I played hockey. A pretty good defenseman, but just can't score a goal to save his life.

I remember some thinking when he was drafted that he was our next Stevens.

Missed it by that much.

He had 2 or 3 posts the year he was traded. Rough.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Ha, he's the only player I know of that breaks and sets a record every game he plays. Until he scores one.

I figured that out; I was just messing around with the OP. I guess I should have included the :P smiley.
