Habs Suck (Devils 4-1) but they're all All-Stars. Who's up for a WJHC Open Thread?

Well that was a load. I guess we can't expect the Habs to go 4-0 on a road trip but fuck. Jaro was bleh, no forward over the age of 25 showed up, and I may have fallen asleep.

But god love some computer programmer, four Habs will start in the All-Star Game. TFS, DOOM, Markov, and Kovy. I am embarrassed.

But it's Canada-Russia at 7 PM! Always a good time. We'll be here if you care to comment.

Nothing wrong with 4 Habs starting the All Star game.

Bruins fans could have voted for their players but (1) there are too few of them and (2) they're mostly hicks from Revere (Reveah) or Medford (Medfuhd) and probably can't use the internet.

HF29; how dare you not mention my goalie? Starting in net for Canada will be the ever dazzling Dustin Tokarski. Did you see the brilliant save he made against USA? Of course you did and I bet it made you jam in your jeans.

Saint Tokarski.

I'm happy those guys made it. It's in our town and it's just a hockey convention anyway. All the usually point leaders will be in the game too. At least, Habs fans care to show up and show their team some love! (Maybe it'll give them a hint).

Hey Boston finally lost. Pittsburgh got run over by the Panthers, oy...

Anyway, GO CANADA! And GO SUBBAN!

pmode knows, Bs fans are all yip. Also DET and SJ fans forget how to click a mouse?

The ovations our 4 Habs Players (has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?) will get from the biggest and best NHL arena fans ever will make it all warm and wet for us diehards.

why is there no 30 minute WJHC pregame show? I am OUTRAGED tsn

HabsFan29 said...

i stand corrected, the 30 minute pregame is going on now, puck drop at 730. i should have trusted TSN's ability to milk this game

HabsFan29 said...

@wrap - they were just showing the save on TSN. it's... alright

aww, look, now they're showing him in his cute little Spokane uniform

Habs sign PK Subban to DiPietro-esque 17 year contract.

HabsFan29 said...

Man this game needs some action and excitement. Give the kids some meth!

I want the Russians skating around shrieking "We can't stay here! This is bat country!"

Isn't our own lg77 at the CAN v. RUS game? If so, I can't hear her. Also, one must remember that this is an Ottawa crowd (careful, I live in Gatineau) and the lack of vocal chords is a local thing (not including Habs fans)!

HabsFan29 said...

LG77 and Panger are there together. LG emailed me and said "we're playing like mankey sheet"

moeman said...

heh, 'mankey sheet' sounds Jaro-ish.

Wish lg77 a Happy New Year and see if she can get herself on the Scotiabank Kiss Cam. (FWIW, its in HD and

GOALLLLLL

HabsFan29 said...

about time for the PP

moeman said...

@hf29 'PP is timely', I know it is (in part) your fab blog/site but do we need to know you need a bathroom break?

Number31 said...

I was at Boston Pizza eating a lovely pizza when they scored the first goal. I think Tavares is starting to understand how Kovy feels every night. They're covering him well enough. Oh well, at least it's picking up a bit.

Ballsack, Russia. Ballsack.

wrap around curl said...

And I am off to a Chiefs game not knowing how this will end. Dammit!

Number31 said...

Oh ya! Espo! Shorthanded!

Number31 said...

Wow Russian's diving~

messages via email from the live game viewers:

@moeman from LG77 - there is no kiss cam at the WJC games

@Wrap from LG and Panger - (your) boy Tokarski had better not cost us the gold medal game. He is getting beat on same move every time...

HabsFan29 said...

@moeman from me - heh. pp

moeman said...

Thnx to hf29>lg77 for the update. A man can (still) dream.

Panic Mode said...

Pat Quinn is one ugly red-faced fathead.

moeman said...

pmode, quinn is a lunkhead (google if you must).

moeman said...

In other hockey news, Sens keep sucking.

HabsFan29 said...

FUCK

Panic Mode said...

You have to feel a bit sorry for Tokarski.

moeman said...

WOW!

HabsFan29 said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

HabsFan29 said...

im pretty fucking nervous for a junior game

moeman said...

Whatever nerves are left will be shot in the shootout.

P.K., I love you.

cottoneye said...

not sure I want this going into a shootout...

HabsFan29 said...

my heart won't take a shootout

moeman said...

Here.

We.

Go!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HabsFan29 said...

cottoneye said...

WOW! Nothing gets me as patriotic as a great international hockey game! Feel pretty bad for the russians though. Nobody derserved to lose tonight.

Matt D said...

Can PK play for us tomorrow? Cuz he is awesome.

wrap around curl said...

Wow, apparently I missed the best bits. I know Toka has a bit of work to do. I still maintain he is a stud.

Shutdown said...

I'm still trying to figure out if that game was a crack induced haze/dream.

Andrew said...

That was insane.
