On Canadiens, Boesch And Brian Kelly's ND Arrogance

I must admit, I thought the Red Wings-Penguins would have made for an ideal Stanley Cup finals. But I do like the idea of the Canadiens possibly getting there. Montreal is a great hockey town. Ranks right up there with Detroit and Toronto - and the Canadiens' tradition is second to none in professional sports. Yes, even the Yankees.

- The most impressive thing Brennan Boesch has done so far was hit a home run, as a left-handed batter, off a left-handed pitcher the caliber of C.C. Sabathia.

- Saw Brian Kelly's statements about loving Notre Dame's status as an independent. Wonder if he'd feel so strongly about it if Big Ten schools refused to schedule Notre Dame games. Seems like the Big Ten does more for the Fighting Irish than they do for the Big Ten these days.

Boesch - legit future or just another 4-A lefty (Clete, Larish, Joyce) on a hot streak? He already seems more capable than any of the other recent left-handed help.

If ND turns down the rumored invite to the expanded Big 10 again, every school in the league should be barred from ever scheduling them again. ND needs the Big 10 games more than MSU, UM and Purdue need ND.

Hoping for a Montreal / Chicago Stanley Cup finals. Great story line of Scotty now in Chicago front office going back the scene of his original glory. Not to mention a matchup of a couple of the best uniforms in all of sports.

What happens to Boesch when Guillen comes off the DL?
