Today is Sunday, January 24th and it's National Compliment Day in the United States. Seeing as how the US and Canada are good friends, I figure it can be National Compliment Day in Canada as well. So on with some compliments.
Brian Burke - You're really good at building a playoff caliber team.
Ron Wilson - You're among the best special teams coaches in the NHL.
Vesa Toskala - Kids across the world hope to one day be as good at goalie as you are.
Phil Kessel - The great orators of our day pale in comparison to your mastery of the spoken word.
Jason Blake - Where can I get a great tan like yours?
Rickard Wallin - Where did you get those silky smooth hands?
Tomas Kaberle - No better shot from the point in the game.
That's all the compliments I have for now. Look for part two of this series on March 27th, National Opposite Day!
