The Morning Skate for Wednesday, November 12th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of a Palin future...
  • Well, that was a nice change. I may have been dreaming but I think the Habs played 60 minutes, playing probably their best game of the year to shutout the Sens 4-0. Higgy gets his first NHL hat trick, TFS made 28 saves and Jarkko Ruutu tried to maim Mad Max. More later today;
  • Gary Bettman undoubtedly had multiple orgasms as the Pens come back to beat the Wings 7-6 in OT;
  • Leafs don't have the firepower to come back, succumb 4-3 to the Flames;
  • As I write this, TSN gives HON honours to Mike Ribeiro. Kill me, please. At least the Stars lost;
  • Danny Brière continues to destroy hockey pools as he's injured again in a 3-1 Flyers win.
Plan the parade!

And that's why I hate Jarkko Ruutu. Filthy hit. I wonder if Mr. Joke will blame Lapierre for putting himself in a vulnerable position?

Justin Crowder said...

Maybe this video of Ribeiro not knowing how to take a hit last night will make you feel a bit better about that HON mention...

Pretty wicked game last night, but I'm quickly tiring of McGuire. During the foist period, Lapierre almost hit one of the Sens (whose name escapes me) from behind but had enough time to stop and not Kostopoulize the guy. P-Mac then said "That's the difference right there. Lapierre is seasoned and has the right amount of experience to know when to give or not".

So McGuire basically said that Lapierre, in his 3rd full year in the NHL, has already surpassed TK's experience level. Awesome.

@Pension Plan Pussy

Jarko has a history of being a douche and that was a deliberate attempt to waste him. There was NO CHECK involved, it was an elbow to the face. Keep trying, though. I appreciate the fact you still think of me enough to go out of your way to post something aimed at me. I'm flattered, dude.

Go LEAFS!

Order has been restored to the universe.Higgins triples his goal total for the season with a nifty hat-trick, Price gets the shut-out and Grabovski falls to earth with a -3 outing.

Jarko Ruutu is a serious asshole. He needs a severe, severe beating. Just like Mr. Fabulous.

melly said...

No way. Check out TSN: Ruutu to face disciplinary hearing.

He no doubt deserves a suspension, I'm just shocked the NHL is following up on it. This couldn't possibly be the year they actually get serious about shots to the head, could it? I mean, naaaah, right?

Jarko Ruutu is a serious asshole. He needs a severe, severe beating. Just like anyone dumb enough to root for the Leafs...

Hey, what's with all the insults and attacks I'm reading? I don't come here for that kind of stuff, I already watch 110%.

Habzfan76 said...

I agree. Let's move on and stop with the continuous baiting. It's like Chud.com over here.

eyebleaf said...

Sorry, sorry. I know, we shouldn't poke the bear. I don't have very much self-control, hence the cocaine problem. But I will do my best.

habszfan76 said...
