Fuck we'll do anything for a winning streak - Thrashers Game Preview and Open Thread

This is what you get when you type "Atlanta Thrashers Girls." Fine with us.

In our neverending quest to find something that will bring on a winning streak, we're just recreating what HF10 so skillfully accomplished Saturday night. So I'm just gonna throw the info out there and hope that the equally sucky Thrashers suck more than us.

Your waiting in line details are that the game starts at 7:3o and is on RDS. But you knew that already I'm sure. Habs coming off the 3-2 win over the Sabres that we never reviewed, so it's like it never happened. Atlanta has lost 3 in a row. Do the Thrashers Have Large Talons? is a good quality Atlanta blog with a great name.

Hot Habs? Checking, checking... Carey Price has won his last two. Then there's uh, uh, uh... right. On the chilly side, how about Kovy and Lang. Kovy hasn't scored in 13 games. Yeesh. Little Tits may be in a category by himself, and may find himself in Hamilton pretty soon. Still on the limp ar DOOM, BGL, and Tangy, though those last 2 may play tonight. UPDATE RDS is reporting that Gui! and Little Tits will sit tonight. Habs I/O reports that BGL and Tangy and d'Agostini are all in. If we hear some lines we'll update more later. DOUBLE SECRET UPDATE - RDS now has the lines as:

Tangy - Pleks - Kosto
Big Tits - Koivu - D'Agostini
Higgy - Lang - Kovalev
Begin - Mad Max - BGL

Holy fuck, Carbo may have done something right for a change. I almost like those.

Kovalchuk and Kozlov lead your list of hot Thrashers. There's a suprise. Good ol' Ron Hainsey and some crappy goalies are keeping the cold side cold, and leading to the fact that the Thrash are second to last in the league in goals allowed. I'm sure the Habs will be the cure for that.

Since we have nothing more to say, we'd like to take a moment to remember Ted Rogers. Please complain about your cable bill in the comments.

Hypothetical questions:
If we were to trade Kovalev to a Western Conference team before the all-Star game, would his votes transfer over, putting him in the starting lineup for the West, potentially kicking someone OFF that starting lineup?
Do you think crazy MTL fans would get a write-in campaign together fast enough to replace Kovy on the starting lineup with someone else, potentially whoever we got in return?
Would Kovy get booed during the All-Star Game if he played for the West?
Should we trade Kovy?

I like the line up..better than the shit suggested yesterday.
If we're lucky Mcquire will take a puck in the face during warm-up and we won't have to suffer through his screaming for 60 mins.

fezworth said...

@Van Hab - I can just imagine it...
"We couldn't accomodate all the Habs on the first line of the Eastern Conference team, so Alex Kovalev will be playing for the Western Conference team as a Canadien."

hockeyzombie said...

I actually like Mcguire. He seems to like the Habs. He over the top at points but he's better than some bland announcers.

I hope SK74 isn't sent down. I have him in my hockey pool. He was +2 last game! But he does have to smarten up. I hope a seat in the press box will humble him.

Can't wait to see Coach K again.

gillis said...

has anybody heard of the Rhino and turtleplek for Boumeester trade rumour?

boumeester a good name to make nicknames for

HabsFan29 said...

gillis did you get that off hockey buzz? sounds like an Eklund special

Habsfan10 said...

FYI, I would make that trade in a fucking heartbeat. I wish Martin was stupid enough to make that deal. Heck, throw in a 1st rounder and see if he bites.

HFF33 aka Panger said...

Boumeester...drool...

I'll take MacGuire over Benoit "Homer" Brunet any day.

holy_flannel said...

man i hate brunet's colour commentary, always stating the obvious
it really pisses me off the way he always praises Gui! and calls him by his first name
@panger - why "Homer"?

fezworth said...

P MacG used to drool over the habs back when he did colour commentary for them on CJAD.

Lostinleafland said...

When McGuire pulls out his 'monster of the game' sequence I want to stuff that microphone down his throat..but that's just me.
Boumeester,,for real? that would be the trade of the year if Bobby could pull it off.

Sean Avery: Douchebag Extraordinaire - Vol XXIV

"I am really happy to be back in Calgary, I love Canada," Avery told the media. "I just want to comment on how it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don't know what that's about. Enjoy the game tonight." "

- Sean Avery, referring to the fact that Dion Phaneuf is currently dating Elisha Cuthbert.

Shutdown said...

I don't get that guy. Like there haven't been 20 guys who had her before he did.

Douchebag extraordinaire.


also... Insulting the heart and soul of the Flames a few weeks back. Now he goes after Dion "My knuckles scrape against the ground at all times" Phaneuf.

Van Hab said...

I hope Avery loses a few teeth tonight.

"Dion, what are you going to do during your five-game suspension?"

"Probably head down to L.A. and relax poolside with Avery's sloppy seconds"

HabsFan29 said...

I'll take Elisha Cuthbert sloppy seconds any day

K kids, I'm off to the legitimate theatre (on meth!) and hope to be back for the 3rd period. be excellent to each other.

lostinleafland said...

Here's the link to Avery speaking to the media.
I hope Dion ragdolls this punk.

Van Hab said...

Looks like Dion won't get a chance, as RDS reports that Avery's been suspended indefinitely by the NHL!

Bryan said...

Dion wouldn't have done anything anyways... he's a sissy.

GO AVERY GO ! The NHL has NO idea how to market this game, and you are right! I was all set to watch the game but now who gives two hoots about Flames/Stars. Yawn.

lostinleafland said...

@LG77..you called it earlier today.
I didn't think D'ago was a good call on the 1st line,but you did!!
The kid gets his first goal and has a solid first period.
Good puck movement so far for the whole team.
shoot kovy shoot

fezworth said...

I'm pretty sad about the suspension as well. It's always fun to see Avery get smashed.

fezworth said...

Worst. Powerplay. Ever.

fezworth said...

Wow, the Howitzer from Turtleplek! I'm impressed. 2-0, and they're not playing badly either (minus the powerplays, which smell worse than my dog.

TANGY!!! 3-0!!

Hedberg's having a nightmare, flopping around the place.

fezworth said...

Woah, what? How is that not a goal?

gillis said...

I heard the boumeester thing from a friend. not sure where he heard it

lawyergirl77 said...

Ugh, I hate being sick. *does another shot of NyQuil*

I keep getting emails from my buddy who is sitting in my seats tonight. Gloating little fucker.

The fact that Tangy's goal didn't count is horseshit - the Thrashers' goalie is basically being rewarded for molesting Lapierre in front of the net. I would be booing my ass off if I was there (which is why I gave up my tix - I know I'd just make myself sicker).

By the way - thanks for the shoutout LiLL! :)

lawyergirl77 said...

W00t! The power play is (somewhat) aliiive!!!

(Granted, against the shittiest PK in the league, but still...)

Shutdown said...

After the D'Agostini goal, it left me there, wondering to myself... Why the hell does Pierre McGuire know that D'Agostini changed his stick flex 2 days ago? And how is it pertinent to the garbage goal he picked up? Did that flex change really mean the difference between scoring and not scoring?
I'd understand if Kovalev changed sticks after a 13 game goal drought and Pierre pointed that out... but this was an AHL call-up.
Pierre, we know you know the players. We're not impressed by every piece of knowledge you throw at us.

I still love him.

fezworth said...

Damn... I had been thinking that things were going well, that the Habs looked confident and loose... And now this.

HabsFan29 said...

walked in to see the empty net goal. that's something

well we tried our best to blow a 3 goal lead

so what did i miss?

HabsFan29 said...

FUCK

we may still blow it!

fezworth said...

Well, we did our best, but couldn't lose this one. Oh well. Next time boys. You'll give it away next time.

*locks Breezer in a trunk, hides the car, and forces Bob to call up Shawn Belle*

Bryan said...

uhhh breezer actually played a decent game. he had so many great breakout passes i lost count.
