The Big Picture Hockey Guru
The guru business involves entertainment, opportunism and selective memory. Today I'm selectively remembering my answer to the question "Who's going to win the Stanley Cup this year". I said Edmonton in my last radio interview with HoweStreet.com (fast forward to 19:30 of the interview if you don't believe me).
Here are some things a guru wouldn't say:
- I didn't have my money riding on my prediction
- if I was wrong there weren't going to be any consequences
- very few people would remember what I said anyways as the interview was on May 12th
Of course Edmonton hasn't won the Stanley Cup yet but there was lots of room on the bandwagon a few weeks ago and I was on it (if only because I didn't know the names of any of the other teams still in the playoffs).
I DO have some money riding on my comments about natural gas being relatively cheap at the moment.
