Found this funny

There's a story in the Evansville Courier & Press on Todd Robinson -- am I the only who thinks he's over-hyped? -- and a quote jumped out at me.

It's about the IceMen's 4-3 loss Saturday to the Komets in a shootout, which went a whopping 11 rounds, with Fort Wayne outscoring Evansville 3-2.

"We had a good chance to win it in the shootout, but (Nicklas Lindberg) tried to go with something different than one of his bread-and-butter moves, and it didn't work out for him," coach Rich Kromm said.

I'm sure I'm reading too much into this, but what about the other seven guys who didn't score?

Granted, Lindberg's attempt was in the third round and could have been the winner at that point, but to just assume that if he goes with another move it's a goal on Nick Boucher seems slightly presumptuous.

I don't know. What do you think?

Anyway, I'm glad there's some coverage in the Courier & Press. I've heard from some unhappy fans down there, especially with the team set to open in its new building against the Komets on Saturday.
