Mysteries of the Universe


Black holes, dark matter, the appeal of Jimmy Kimmel, and this...
The American Hockey League announced today that Hershey Bears left wing Alexandre Giroux has been named the Reebok/AHL Player of the Month for October. Giroux registered seven goals, seven assists and a plus-9 rating in just seven games for the Bears last month.

How can someone who consistently has this level of production at the AHL level of play look so discombobulated at the NHL level?

"...the appeal of Jimmy Kimmel"

This. I used to weep when Kimmel subbed for Adam Carolla on Loveline.

It's not that big a mystery, the guy can't skate at the NHL level. He can't get around the defensemen, he's a slow moving target for faster physical defensemen, and he can't set up in front of the net like he can in AHL.

He's like the John Slaney of forwards.
