A Haiku for every NHL Team’s Season – Central Division

Welcome to the penultimate instalment in our four-part series summarising each NHL team’s season within the confines of a haiku. You can find the Atlantic Division version here and the Metropolitan Division version here for your reading pleasure.

Again, for those unsure what a Haiku is, it is an “unrhymed Japanese poetic form that consists of 17 syllables in three lines containing five, seven, and five syllables, respectively” (Merriam-Webster). There are variations but for simplicity’s sake, we’ll stick to the traditional 5-7-5 format.

Chicago Blackhawks
Lehner has been great
Until there is a shootout,
He wants your advice

Colorado Avalanche
Things are going great
Oh, another injury
Still best team to watch

Dallas Stars
Goaltending superb
Scoring is non-existent
Talent’s been wasted

Minnesota Wild
If your team name’s ‘Wild’,
You start a kids charity,
Choose the name wisely

Nashville Predators
The league’s been cat-fished
By some underperforming,
Flailing, Predators

St Louis Blues
Second in the league
No Stanley Cup hangover
Both goalies win games

Winnipeg Jets
Byfuglien’s missing
Laine’s a playmaker now?
Postseason in doubt

That’s all for today, come back tomorrow for the Pacific Division version. Feel free to leave a comment if you have a Haiku for a Central Division team you would like to share, or let me know on Twitter either via @HockeyEmbassy or @CanStrayan.
