Logan Stanley – “Still D.R.E.” – by Dr. Dre
Initial Reaction: Can he even hear music up that high?
Assumed reason for selection: It’s a great song, with a sick hook, but I didn’t know Kitchener Ontario had electricity, let alone hip-hop.
Song Choice Rating: 3 ½ Stars
Preferred Choice: I know, you think I’m going to go with low hanging fruit here, and you’re right. “Tall Man” by Johnny Cash is a no brainer. Kevin Sawyer can have it playing in the background every time he calls a Jets game. For those reading that don’t follow the Jets closely…Logan Stanley is really tall.
Mix-tape, CD, or streaming guy: Stanley is young, but his song choice makes me think he likes the classics, so I would peg him as a CD connoisseur.
Will we hear this song frequently this year? Probably not, but Stanley’s last 2 games against the Leafs and the Blues have been the best of his professional career. He led the Jets in Expected Goals over that span (albeit in limited minutes), but credit where credit is due. If he continues to play like he has, it is going to be difficult to keep him out of the lineup.
