  • Claude Lemieux in China

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 November 17日 Monday

    Claude Lemieux, who had been working out in Arizona to prepare for an NHL comeback attempt, was somehow convinced to play hockey in Asia with the China Sharks. The move happened quickly and he has already suited up for the Chinese team against Anyang Halla in the Asia League games this past weekend and recorded his first point with an assist in the Sunday game

    I’m definitely going to go see their games against Seibu next weekend in Tokyo! Wade Flaherty is keeping the Sharks in many many games that they have no business being in either, but they’re falling just short of earning points. A legendary agitator making a comeback from retirement, this reminds me of Esa Tikkanen’s years with Anyang Halla.

    Shanghai’s far away from the NHL and this comment he made just recently:
    “I’m not doing this just to play one game in the NHL and that’s it. I really think I can still help a team make the playoffs, and into the playoffs,” he told the Post. “It would sure be nice to get that fifth Stanley Cup.

      Wow – I never thought that we’d never see Lemieux again, but I suppose Chelios is older and he’s still playing. I never liked watching that guy but he was great in the finals for New Jersey in 95 or 96.

    2. Chelios must be a robot 😛
      Anyways, wasn’t expecting you to chip in on a hockey post in my schizophrenic blog, awesome 😀

      Hockey is easily my 2nd most-watched sport. I went to 13-14 San Jose Sharks games last year, though I won’t get to nearly that many this season. Cheli finally looked like he was done in the playoffs last year, I was surprised when he re-signed for this year.
