Helloooo Mrs. Gretzky (oh I guess and Wayne too) - Coyotes Game Preview and Open Thread

3-1 odds she regrets this photo now. The Mrs. still looks good today, but now we'll go with the younger Ms. Gretzky

Phoenix? I know nothing about Phoenix beyond their coach. Are they good? I would look it up, but it's meth day.

Waiting in line details - 7 PM start at the Phone Booth. Habs haven't lost in regulation this year. Does that count for anything if we can't play more than one period? Habs played the Yotes once last year, and won 4-2. Habs last lost to Phoenix in 1998. This is the last stop on Phoenix' 4-game road trip, coming off a loss last night in Ottawa. DOOM is playing his 300th NHL game.

Pay your cover charge to - True Coyote Love, another awesome HLOG'er. Here at FHF we measure a team's support by the number of regular bloggers. Phoenix? Uh, one. Barely. Her last post was 10 days ago.

Hot Sexy Habs to watch - Markov is our points leader. Thinks he's Bobby Orr or something. Saks and Gui! one point back.

Skanky Habs to watch - Anyone playing in whichever two periods we choose not to play tonight.

Hot sexy Yotes to watch - Olli Jokinen leads in points with 6.

Skanky Yotes to watch - How should I know? I barely even remember Phoenix has an NHL team.

It's getting crowded - Higgy is ready to go and will play with Gang Bang and Little Tits. Frankie B is also possibly good to go, and may take Breezer's spot. We can only dream. Who the hell knows who will play on the fourth line tonight.

Post-game adult entertainment establishment - Gentleman's Choice. I've never been there, but I have a good story about it. One night I was out with the boys and we were headed to FHF favourite Club Downtown, which is two doors down from Gentleman's Choice. One of the boys (hey Goozo!) had to go to the ATM for some cash, so he says he'll meet us at Downtown. He never showed up. The next day we asked where the fuck he had gone, and he said no, where the fuck did you go? Of course he had gone to Gentleman's Choice by accident and obviously didn't see us. He stayed for a while said it was full of skanks. So I guess if you like skanks, you should go.

Let's hear your skanky thoughts in the comments

Daniel Carcillo is suspended for tonight's game, so don't need to worry about his goon bullshit.

As for hot sexy Yotes to watch: Mueller, Turris and Boedker should be kept an eye on, all potential young studs.

Who gives a shit who I am? said...

Actually, Higgins is still out, per RDS.

Eklund would be jumping all over it saying it's because he's moving for Gaborik.

I think Carbs is just lazy and didn't feel like sorting out the lineup yet.

Random comment:

I don't get why HF4 is blogging under his real name on HI/O. Why "go public" when you could've blogged under "HF4".

I mean, you've been anonymous for quite a while, what a brutal coming out... But never the less, good story on H I/O

Rips it, scores! said...

Am I the only one who doesn't really care all that much about this game? Sure, I'll listen to it on CJAD but......meh tbh.

Well.. RDS says this rumour has got some legs. http://www.rds.ca/canadien/chroniques/261875.html

He has a 6.333 cap hit. How the hell are we going to afford that? Higgins+Kos+Begin+Halak+Dandenault....
That's what we would need to get rid of to afford him.

panger76 said...

@shutdown - it could be done if the deal was Higgins, Halak and maybe Kosto (he seems like Jaques Lemaire's type of player). Then they could just send Dandy and Begin to the minors.

Even if it's possible, why are we getting more of our strength? If we're trading two young players with upside that are not UFA for a couple of seasons, we should be going after another stud defencemen. How are we going nto keep all the forwards we have now long term? While I'd rather have Gaborik than Tangauy impact-wise, I'd rather have Tanguay and Koivu than just Gaborik.

HabsFan29 said...

@Rips it - couldn't agree more. but i'm home so i feel sort of obligated to watch

so exactly the same lineup. and the guys on RDS earlier couldn't help but link Higgins absence to the trade rumour. went on for 5 minutes about that crap. Panger your analysis is spot on

Shutdown said...

Panger, that's how I feel.
I'd rather go after Brent Burns than Gaborik. We need a top 4 D-man.

HabsFan29 said...

so if Bob Cole is doing the game it means we're the second game nationally now, right? thank god for RDS. though im still not sure if i will be able to stand a year of Brunet

Shutdown said...

Luckily for you, TSN will have its share of Habs games, so you get to listen to Pierre McGuire. So will CBC though, and I love me some Jim Hughson.

I heard Pednault was joining CBC's HNIC.

Shutdown said...

C'est le but, esti.

HabsFan29 said...

mmm Tangy. so this is the #1 line now?

panger76 said...

What a save. This feels like the Briuns game but the Yotes figured them out quicker.

Shutdown said...

More like line #1a.
Kovy's line is 1b, and Lang's is 1c.


Price with his highlight reel save for the game. Happens every time.

HabsFan29 said...

Panger loves him some lateral movement

Shutdown said...

Markov is just killing the points this year. He's at 7 now.

moeman said...

I'm lovin' my Habs.

Also, I'm no big gretzky fan (he's been a whiner for decades) but he made sure to shut up cbc/hnic's ron mclame about Yzerman being the man in charge of Team Canada 2010. mclame may have a bigger ego than cherry, if thats possible.

HabsFan29 said...

so i switched over to CBC for a sec and Pednault is already on there.

Brunet is hot for Gui!

moeman said...

mclame's lavender tie is available via mapleleafssuck.con ? (obvious typos)

Shutdown said...

To anyone who was watching Coach's corner, did you notice this?

Ron was talking, and he rests his hand on the table. A little too close for comfort for Cherry, I guess because Don kind of subtly swats Ron's hand to "his side" of the table. Hahah.

moeman said...

Brunet's top line top 3;

- #s1&2 Gui and Alex, just cuz they're Francophones? (so am I BTW)

- #3 - Saku

I've emailed RDS and asked that Brunet tone down the pure wool love, it, is, embarrassing

Shutdown said...

Big Tits is knocked the fuck out.

Rips it, scores! said...

Pleasedon'tbeconcussedpleasedon'tbeconcussedpleasedon'tbeconcussedpleasedon'tbeconcussedpleasedon'tbeconcussed

Flying Toaster said...

I just hope Little Tits will go headhunting for the rest of the game!

HabsFan29 said...

awwwww, brothers seeking revenge

moeman said...

Small Tits gets penalized for dat?

msevigny said...

It's a good thing there isn't a penalty for pushing a guy face-first into the boards at a high speed with your hands over his shoulders, or I might have thought that was kind of an irresponsible non-call by the official. Oh well, Sergei (the REAL threat to the game) has been appropriately penalized. Everyone is safe, except for what's his face with the concussion.

HabsFan29 said...

well this game has taken a turn for the entertaining

Rips it, scores! said...

How are the Habs playing, for those of us not in TV land? They sound like they're coasting.....again. Not good.

moeman said...

Wouldn't say they are coasting. Not always in 1st gear and pedalled to the metal but still on the offensive, including the D.

moeman said...

Sens down 3-1, to the Bs, with Fernandez in net.

Rips it, scores! said...

Ah, not so bad in that case. They seemed to be putting more pressure on just prior to the TV timeout.

panger76 said...

LaRack is a monster, but sauer is still a pussy.

moeman said...

K-Tops takes one for the team. Balls.

HabsFan29 said...

didnt we get LaRock so everyone else could avoid fighting?

Shutdown said...

not coasting. there have been a few distractions in the 2nd.


sauer didn't wanny fight BGL. So he dances with the other GL. The Greek Lightning.

Shutdown said...

We're dropping like flies.

Rips it, scores! said...

As Boone said, the Big Tits injury seemed to have disrupted the Habs' rhythm.

PS: The referees are shit.

Shutdown said...

3-0.
Tangualangalanguay.

Rips it, scores! said...

Tanguay!

The Habs section of my fantasy team is doing well tonight.

HabsFan29 said...

he had a little time there

1a line indeed now

Sonia said...

Was that Lats making moves? I mean, actual moves?

moeman said...

Has FHF given Alex a nickname yet? If not, is poonTang worthy as a nickname?

Rips it, scores! said...

And now a stick into Komi's face! Who the hell do Phoenix think they are?

HabsFan29 said...

@moeman - ive been simply calling him Tangy, but i sure do like poonTang

not a particularly scintillating PP

moeman said...

Picture-in-picture comment; hey Pierre LeBrun, a goatie isn't slimming.

Shutdown said...

Did Lang just kiss Lil Tits' helmet?

moeman said...

'Tangy' is tasty but the way poon is scoring ...

Tang-a-Lang makes it 4-0!

Rips it, scores! said...

Montreal players on my fantasy team are doing really well tonight.

moeman said...

Last time Carbo owned Gretzky likes this it was the Stanley Cup Finals in 1993.

moeman said...

FWIW, the hit on Big Tits looked in no way intentional and despite edgy it was a clean take down into the boards. Double-D cup got his bell rung but will be OK and kudos to the PHO player for taking his lumps in a 'fight' vs. K-Tops, a stand-up smurf.

HabsFan29 said...

koivu is everywhere

moeman said...

PIT's Therrien (re)teams up Sid and Malkin and both bag 4 points, so far. I know, its, da, leaf. But still.

Shutdown said...

Price and Gorges switching helmets. Awesome.

moeman said...

G G B U

Great ~ Saku.

Good ~ whilst cherry is likely still clenched about the Habs PP not 'easing off', Carbo puts Kovy on the PK (not a typo), ~ Tanguay as a Habs on line 1a

Bad ~ benoit brunet and his pure wool commentary, brunet at RDS, is a bigger homer than bob cole at cbc/acc, his Quebec-first rants are pathetic, STFU or as we say in Quebecois, ferme ta maudite geule

Ugly ~ cbc/hnic, leading off with, wait for it, their leaf, who says there is no good comedy on cbc (apologies to Rick Mercer)

~ ron 'mirror' mclean, 100% disgusting, makes harper seem likable

Bonus GGBU points;

~ posted this elsewhere, gretzky slapped the me-me-me mclame around for his inane attempts at be-litling Yzerman's selection as Team Canada's 2010 Exec choice

that was fast.

Shutdown said...

that was hilarious.

Number31 said...

Gui! was pretty good tonight. Even the couple next to me were like "woah, that's Gui?"

Too bad Sergei didn't hit that idiot harder. Nothing like brotherly love. Fucking 'Yotes. Gretzky YOU SUCK! (Too bad he couldn't hear me from way up in the rafters). I punish you to forever toil in oblivion down in the Phoenix desert and may your franchise be torn asunder. Or that you get stuck in Winnipeg when they move back. Seriously? So much for young talent. When your coach stinks, it shows. Yotes were pretty awful looking...
