Brodeur wasn't to blame on the three first goals, god damn tips. Lame fucking lucky Tranna Make Beliefs. I hate them.

Damn Leafs! Screwed up my pick em pool on The Score! I had the Devils as my gold lock.

Hey, I know there's a lot of "what ifs" when looking back at drafts.
In 2001, Mikko was taken 6th overall. 7th overall? DOOM!

The question: Are you happy it worked out this way?
If the Wild had chosen DOOM, would the Habs have taken Mikko?
Are the Habs better off with Doom?

I say: Yes, yes, yes.

Limerick Dude said...

This is off the topic. I don't often watch Sportsnet. Last night (i think it was) I tuned in to catch some highlites. One of the hosts - Sean McCormack(?) I think actually goes (it seemed to me) by the nickname of "Big Dude"...
oookaaay then. Can anybody confirm this?

Anyway, got me to thinking that I have to change my display name.
I was born in Ireland (near Limerick). Left before i was 2.

Just want you FHF's to know I think you have the best sports blog on the planet (and probably in the entire universe) and that I'm going to continue to post under a different Alias.

I'm thinking of the following:
Paddy O'Furniture

*Apparently this one is taken :)

Yeah, the Leafs were really "lucky" getting back into that game, out-shooting NJD 35-17 in periods two and three. Very lucky indeed.

Beleaf, bitches!

@LD - don't you dare change your name. my meth-filled head doesn't handle change well.

@eyebleaf - I am grudgingly respecting what Ron Wilson is accomplishing down there.

@ limerick dude - Why change? limerick dude is brilliant. No one watches Sportsnet, so we won't even think of this McCormack jackoff when you post.

And at the time, I was very glad that Minny took Koivu, because I was convinced the Habs would take him if he was available ... and I wasn't sure about him. In hindsight, that pick would have worked out nicely, but I'm glad the Habs have DOOM. I'm guessing that Tampa, Florida and Anaheim regret not choosing Mikko more than any Habs fan regrets not getting the chance.

HabsFan29 said...

agreed,10, DOOm was the right pick at the time and I'm happy we have him

game preview is up if you guys want to continue the discussion over there...

McCormick is, indeed, "Big Dude." Don't know why. Don't care. He's married to our favourite lipstick lesbian, Jennifer Hedger, 's all I know.
