I Could Watch Joe Pavelski Playing "Just The Tip" For Hours

You watch these games as the NHL season goes on and you start to take for granted just how nasty all these guys are. Sure, Crosby is usually good for having at least 3 or 4 deflection goals every year that make you shit your pants in awe. But for the most part, I feel like perfectly deflected goals are just something we've come to expect as fans. 

Then you watch Joe Pavelski practice his tip-in's at practice and you quickly realize that these bastards are pretty much Jedis out there. Borderline sorcery. You can fire the puck 10 feet wide and Pavelski can still figure out a way to bury it in the back of the net. It's mesmerizing. 

Also, I've said this before and I'll say it again. We need to come up with the technology to be able to watch things through the perspective of these athletes. I'm not talking about just slapping a Go Pro on Pavelski's helmet because that wouldn't do it justice. To all of us schmucks at home, we'd see a puck come firing at him in real time. I need to know how much slower everything moves in his brain than it does compared to ours. Kind of like that scene from "Wanted", ya know? Great movie featuring James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie just looking as spicy as ever. One of those movies that you forget about for a while, then you're reminded about it and couldn't believe you forgot about the movie in the first place. Then you forget about it again and the cycle goes on. The point of this blog isn't that "Wanted" is an awesomely kick ass movie, though. The point of this blog is that Joe Pavelski is a freak and I just wish there were a way for us as fans to reset our brains so we can stop taking deflection goals for granted as much as we do.
