Michigan Mikey

Even though he's already scored more than 20 goals this season, I don't often write about Mike Knuble. If you look on that thing on the right sidebar that shows you how much about each category has been written, you'll see. He's rarely terrible, and he's rarely extraordinary. He's just a good, hard-playing, Flyersy player. Which is totally acceptable.
Mike is playing in his home state of Michigan today for the first time in three years. His family from Grand Rapids will likely be in attendance, as well as some old chums from his days in Ann Arbor playing for the University of Michigan. He liked it there. He was the Wolverines' most improved player in 1993, and their MVP in 1995. Other notable Wolverines in the NHL include Marty Turco, Cam Ward, Brendan Morrison, and Mike Comrie.
Will being back in the Wolverine State lead Knuble to be something besides not terrible and not extraordinary tonight? I'm going to go out on a limb and say...maybe.
In case you haven't figured it out yet, there was no real point to this post. Sorry.
