The Game Day Skate for Thursday, April 9th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of being kidnapped by pirates...
Happy Passover everyone! Be sure to sneak into the other room during your seder tonight to watch the Habs get creamed by the Bruins.

This season has hit a new low. I'm actually cheering for Philadelphia. Just for the next two games though.

L Dude said...

@sleepy: Yep, times are rough. GO FLYERS! (a little bit of me just died inside).

Oh and go Thrashers.

I see Bob says he's leaning towards playing Price over Halak. HELLO! MCFLY! IS THERE ANYBODY IN THERE?! FUUUUUCK!

word: olympi

heh. reminds me of the old Hercules cartoon: OLLLYMMMPIIAAA!

fuck this season.

Robbie said...

I'm thinking of routing for the Leafs...fuck they aren't in the playoffs (and i would never, ever route for those fuckers anyways)...ok wait i think i'm going to route for the Oil...fuck there not in either..Sens..fuck no! "holy absenty Canadian clubs Batman"! Flames? I couldn't bring myself to route for a team from that tight ass reform party birth town. Vancouver...i might have been able to but then they brought in Mat and that fucked it all up for me.

Ah fuck it i'll route for our own loser team, in the absence of options go with what you know...

Suggestion; give $Sign$(Price) a regular stick and put him on defence, he likes to roam around so much and we all know the results of that so he would fit in nicely with what we have left as a defence core...

Happy Passover

The fact that the fucking BLUE JACKETS clinched a playoff spot before us is fucking depressing.

COME ON HABBIES! BRING MOMMA A NEW PASSOVER MIRACLE!! (granted, I'm a shiksa, but I lived in CSL for a while, so I kind of count... right??)

The Hockey Orphan post is brilliant! Thanks for starting my day off with a laugh, considering I'll likely end the day in a frustrated rage/tears.

Happy Passover, enjoy the seder meal.

It's not about if we win or lose tonight it will be a suck-ometer of how bad we actually are right now. A useful measuring tool heading into the playoffs.

Boob Gainey said...

Sneak into the playoffs, get Bouillon and Markov back, Price retrieves his groove...

We still aren't going far, are we?

moeman said...

Team990 is 'reporting' that Schneide's equipment is being FedEx to Beantown.

kmaxx said...

Routing for the Flyers is just wrong...but then again I would be gutted if they we didn't make it into the playoffs (even if only to lose 4 straight)...so I don't have any fucking choice as I don't see us picking up a point in the next two games...here it goes...Go Flyers g...ah fuck it I can't do - Go Habs Go - Just fuckin tie baby!!


word verification: bacsion - as in our bacsion is pretty much fuckin' cooked for this year!

Habsfan10 said...

Since rooting for the Flyers makes all of us feel like we need a shower, root for Atlanta. A Thrashers win versus the Panthers guarantees Montreal a spot.

Go Thrashers!

@moeman: are you fucking with us? you are, aren't you?

word verif - bilisec, which is the unit of time i considered rooting for the flyers.

moeman said...

@tctt, always am, not sure what vibe I'm sending that suggests I'm not. Go Habs!

Word Verif = bustea, as in;

- I love a nice bustea'd woman

- here's hopin' BGL will bustea a couple of Lucic's ribs

- bustea; a short form for Boston Tea Party, which da Habs can have after they win tonight

- I would bustea a rhyme in a parody but not til da Habs bag da playoff spot

lawyergirl77 said...

Tonight is the ONLY night that I would put Pebbles into the lineup... but if he fails to deliver the required tuneup to Lucic, then I think he needs to have his ass nailed to the pressbox for the rest of the year. I'll buy the hotdogs.

And I can't believe people were actually thinking of rooting for the Flyers. Seriously? That's only a (tiny) step up from the Bruins, Laffs and Nordiques. Bleargh.

Word verification (too perfect): obtieri. As in, I hope I don't read about the Habs' season in the obtieri columns on Sunday.

God, I've got a bad feeling about tonight.

Deucy Price said...

Hey..

Schneider has a partially torn rotator cuff (left shoulder), but I also heard his gear has been shipped to Boston... take with a grain of salt here though... who knows...

funny wordverif: soscrou

.: We are soscrou'd without Markov & Schenider..lol

Boob Gainey said...

Pebbles isn't going to go after the Looch, and anyway Lucic would decline the invitation.


Lucic's last fight by the way was against one Josef Melichar - a player who never fights.

Lucic is a coward, but then you already knew that when you saw that big 'B' on his chest.

too close to toronto said...

@lg: i emphatically agree. tonight is laraque's last chance at redemption. there is only one thing he needs to do, and all will be forgiven as far as i am concerned.

but for what it's worth, the tools at tsn.ca have him out of the "potential lines" for tonight. keep in mind that this is the same network/website that made a major story out of a monkey's retirement from its playoff prediction work. sadly, that is not a joke.

word verif: stsyneed. if there is a st. syneed, i hope he is the patron saint of miraculous upper/lower body injury recoveries.

Boob Gainey said...

I think we'll lose both games, probably while getting badly outshot.

I think Florida will win both of their games, against Atlanta and a Caps team that will rest players.

After that it all depends on the Flyers. If the Rangers get only one point from the two games we are through.

Great (fucking) post, Habsfan29. If that IS your REAL name.
