The Sky Is Falling In Buffalo: Sabres 3 - Sucky Habs 2

That pretty much sums up last night's game.

The split personalities of HFF aka Panger review the Sabres/Habs game:

HFF33: I can't believe we lost to the Sabres. The seventh-place Sabres. We're now 7 points from missing the playoffs. We suck. No, wait - THEY suck. The Habs suck. Kovalev and Higgins suck cause they either don't have the right letter or none at all. ZombiePleks sucks because he's been feeding on his coach's brains, and after about 30 seconds he's starving to death. DOOM sucks for handing the Sabres the game-winning goal. Price sucks for that first goal from the blueline that even I would have been embarrassed to let in. Franky sucks because he's a midget (which is much more noticeable when he's playing beside Rhino). Rhino didn't suck actually - which just means he'll be traded to Philly for a bag of pucks in a month. They sucks, and they're gonna lose to the Leafs tonight, while Little Tits is going to be beaten up by Grabovski and we'll all be wearing Leafs jerseys by midnight.

Panger: Miller stood on his head and stole a game. It happens. Take a pill.

Our current defence pairings might well be:

Komisarek - Markov
Souray - Rivet
Hamrlik - Streit

Is it time to think the unthinkable about Bob Gainey?

What? That he's gay and summers on Fire Island? (Not-that-there's-anything-wrong-with-that).

I'm not too fussed, perplexed. Souray and Streit were terrible on D (and Souray would probably be injured by now, anyway), and I'll take Pacioretty and Gorges over Rivet any day.

Word verification: elete. As in "Montreal doesn't qualify as an 'elete' team... yet."

Wouldn't that be about 30mm for six defensemen after Komi resigns? Not a lot of dollars left for the rest of the team.

South Shore Habs Fan said...

25.95 under current contracts - so yes, probably a shade under 30 million when Komi resigns (I had done the math for an earlier post that never quite made it).

And with the salary cap going down, that would mean about 18 million for the forwards, which would buy Koivu, Kovalev, Tanguay, and Big Tits. That's about it.
