In Topic: Niedermayer to Ducks (CONFIRMED)

04 August 2005 - 10:50 AM

Well, this sucks. But in my heart of hearts, I knew this was gonna happen. But Anaheim? Damn. That fact is what makes this even harder to swallow. Earlier this week I was holding out hope that Scott would go to VAN and then praying today for at least SJ--two western teams I like to watch...and really enjoy their style of play. But the real sh!tty thing is the delays with this decision...stringing us along to the point where the D-man talent pool has completely dried up. Hamrlik? Nah. I'll pass.

But I guess Anaheim makes sense--especially after the dad talked about having Scott play with his brother. That sealed it, I guess.

Funny thing though--think about Scott and Rob for a minute. Scott has prolly had to do this sorta thing all his life...bail out his little bro. Do what mommy and daddy want him to do in order to help out the less fortunate little Robbie. "Makes sure you watch out for Robbie!" "Make sure you include Robbie!" And think about Rob for a minute--living your entire life in the shadow of your extremely more talented older brother--who wins all the championships, all the trophies,...and now you are financially indebted to him for the rest of your life--tailgating on big brother's uber free agent contract sigining by getting one of your own only via a family-plan package deal.

Anyone up for throwing together a collection to pay off a sportswriter to ask Rob a question at the press conference today..."So Rob, how does it feel to be set for life--thanks only to your big brother's God-given skills and ability? How will you ever possibly be able to repay him? Feel at all embarrassed? Clearly you are here today only by blood? Or are you just used to Scott being the center of attention? Need a tissue dude?"
