It's my Parting Shot for some Weekend Short Shots...
There's a lot of buzz in C-F-L circles about former N-F-L first round draft pick Trent Richardson suiting up for the Riders tomorrow in Toronto. I'm not as amped up about it...mostly because Chris Jones just said he would play. He didn't say Richardson would be the starting running back. That could still be Kienan LaFrance. As for what kind of effect Richardson might have, he'll only have an effect as long as the Green and White are in a position to run the football. If they fall behind to the Argos, Kevin Glenn will be filling the B-MO Field air with passes!
How long will it last? There were 29 goals in four games as the N-H-L opened the regular-season Wednesday and another 55 goals in the eight games last night. That's seven per game so far! Keep the G-M's and coaches out of the ears of the officials and let the entertainment continue!
And, it says here that the over-under on number of victories for the Vegas Golden Knights in their first N-H-L season is 19-and-a-half. I've got the under...how about you?!
