By George Ofman-

(CBS) “If the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”  Corey Crawford is saved by his defense. Brent Seabrook kept his client from being hauled into goaltender jail with simple plan: SHOOT THE PUCK!

————————————–

By the way, Tuukka Rask didn’t exactly bring back memories of Patrick Roy, did he?  He gave up just two goals in a four game sweep of the Penguins. He’s already coughed up 11 goals in four games against the Hawks.

————————————–

Enjoyed how Brent Seabrook basically read Jonathan Toews the riot act. ‘Hey captain, it’s great to lead but will you please put the puck in the net’?

————————————–

Reuniting Toews and Patrick Kane made Joel Quennville look like a genius. Guess he wasn’t so smart in Game 3. Having Bryan Bickell with Kane and Toews reminded me a bit of Denis Savard with Steve Larmer and Al Secord.  And let’s not forget Bickell contributed two assists in the wild game four victory.

————————————–

The King and his court. If LeBron James didn’t prove he’s the best player on the planet, then you probably belong on one of Saturn’s rings. You may not like LeBron (though I’m not sure what’s not to like these days),  but you have to admit there is no one better. I think 37 points and 12 rebounds in Game 7  is pretty much proof he’s a big game player. That said he may be a better specimen than Michael Jordan, but he has a long way to be declared the best ever.

The White Sox commit more errors, are picked off more bases and run them as if they have the cooties. Instead of harping about fundamentals how about hiring a dance instructor? On second thought, how about hiring different players?

————————————–

Hawk Harrelson said this season has been hell on him. Imagine what it’s been like for the paying customer?

————————————–

Do you realize the Sox had the best defense in the American League last season? Now they have the second worst.

————————————–

Alfonso Soriano claims he’s angry the way the Cubs are playing. Maybe he should spend some time with Harrelson watching the Sox. But this is the same guy who turned down a trade to the Giants because of the weather in San Francisco. Time to go, Alfonso. Oh, by the way, I still believe Starlin Castro’s future will be with another team.

————————————–

In case you thought baseball had a stranglehold on stats, the Bears hired a director of analytics. But now, on his fifth offensive coordinator, Jay Cutler may need an analyst first. And one with a comfy couch.

————————————–

So, do you think there’s trade value for Carlos Marmol?  I’ll be willing to wager you could get more for Millard Fillmore.

————————————–

There are guys in our town who are top-notch writers who happen to be top-notch people. I can’t think of any better than Dan Pompei who received the prestigious Dick McCann award for distinguished NFL reporting.
