One of my favorite scenes in The Blues Brothers is where Jake and Elwood are riding in their recently acquired police car, and Belushi increduously asks, “You traded the Bluesmobile for this?” “No,” replies Akroyd, “I traded the Bluesmobile for a microphone.”
So far I’ve watched Lukowich take his eyes off of Peter Forsberg while shorthanded, saw Klee watch pucks skip over his stick on the power play, seen the Devils squander a week’s worth of power play opportunities, and observed the Canadiens, Lightning and Thrashers crawling up the Devils playoff tailpipe.
Lou is rolling his lines, trying to find a combination who can score. Yo, Lou, how about a combination who can control the puck at the blueline at even strength?
We traded the Suglo-mobile for this?
A microphone, a la Jake Blues, I could understand. Too bad the microphone isn’t announcing Devils goals.
