The Morning Skate for Tuesday, April 14th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of Phil Spector. Da doo ron ron ron, baby...
  • HIO's report from practice yesterday has the standard lineup from the last couple of weeks, but with BGL on the 4th line and we guess El Dandy on D;
  • The Gazette's story on BGL being in the lineup needs a new headline writer;
  • Avs dump their GM.
Inside View of the Massholes
We're gonna use this space for a second set of bullets, keeping track of what our friends in the Broons blogosphere have to say. You know, if they could speak in complete sentences.
2 days, 13 hours til puck drop. I'm tired of waiting already.

I'm afraid it's going to be the Bruins in 4, with a couple of blowouts.

We were always a fragile team, and without Markov our D is woeful.

Carey Price is still not able to win games by playing 60 minutes. Against the pens he let in two softies. No matter how good he was on the other shots, that is deadly.

The Bruins have no weaknesses. They have lost their inferiority complex towards the Habs.

It's going to hurt.

L Dude said...

@Boob: Kindly keep that shit-talk to yourself. Bruins in fo...? Nah, fuck I won't even retype it. It just hurts to see this pessimism on a Habs blog. THE Habs blog.

Oh but I
Need some time off from that emotion
Time to pick my heart up off the floor
And when that love comes down
Without devotion
Well it takes a strong man baby
But I'm showing you the door

'Cause I gotta have faith...

Boob Gainey said...

Hey I've been supporting the Habs all along. I'm just realistic.

lawyergirl77 said...

I'd like to think that we have enough heart to avoid getting swept at home.

I also have a tiny little space in my heart that is telling me that we can take these guys... We just have to play 60 minutes of hockey. *hysterical laughter*

And Boob, TFS had NO CHANCE on either one of those shorties against the Pens. It was our porous defence that led to 2-on-basically-nones, TWICE during a penalty. TFS had stood on his head before then... That loss was clearly not his fault, unlike some other games that we can clearly pin on him.

@ Boob & LG77:

You're both kinda sorta right. TFS had no chance on the first shorthanded goal. He coulda/shoulda had the second, no matter how hard Pierre Maguire thinks Kris Letang can shoot. Either way, he'd better be at his TFS'n best for the Fucking Bruins.

L Dude said...

I know Boob. heh "I know boob."

I'm just sayin keep a positive vibe my brother!

@LG: I agree about the goals, though he could have had the Letang goal - even though it was a seeing eye laser. Carey's good buddy Gorges could have maybe attacked instead of backing, backing, backing off...

Good thing is beat the Bruins and we win the cup. It's in the stars.
We have beaten the Pooh's 24 times in the playoffs. How many cups do we have? That's right kiddies - 24. Let's make it 25 Bear beatings and 25 cups! I have faith. When I go to my hockey pool tomorrow night, I will draft Alex Kovalev with my first pick, even if I get #1 overall! Kovy hates the Bruins as much as anyone. He will be a force. Expect 8-11 points from him depending on how quickly the Habs dispatch Cro-magon man, the shaved Gorilla, Tiny Tim and the rest.



Moey said...

I think BG wanted them to play the Broons. He did say when he fired Carbo that he was concerned that the players didn't look emotionally engaged. Our GM is shrewd, there's no better team to get our boys fired up for the first round than the B's.

Word verif - fingo

As in I'm giving the Bruins the big fingo.

L Dude said...

@Moey: I think BG wanted them to play the Broons.That's what I said on Sunday. Look at the hodgepodge lines he threw together against the Pens. There's no way he planned on winning that game.

Well, I figger we would have to get through the Bruins at some point - might as well be round 1....AGAIN!

Boob Gainey said...

Your morning smile.

Le Bleuet admits hat he would love to succeed Jacques Lemaire as Wild coach. He also said that he is nonetheless not closing any doors, including the Montreal Canadiens.

Aye Mario: La porte est fermée et verouillée a double tour.

gillis said...

I hate being realistic. HABS IN FOUR!!!! heheh

I wasnt able to watch the Pens game cause i was stuck in leafs land, and they dont have RDS at the hotel.

I like Chowders pick of BGL staring at Lucic while Lucic is avoiding eye contact. What a pussy.

I wonder why he didnt put the pic of Lucic face washing Komisarek to the ground from behind.

Stay classy my ass. Fuck 'em all. Whos down for setting some cop cars on fire and beating up a few Broons fans?

lawyergirl77 said...

Boob - pis j'ai mis des chiens de garde à la porte avec des casques de Roy.

Seriously. Seriously. SERIOUSLY?? Is HE FUCKING KIDDING US??

lawyergirl77 said...

Oh and Moey - I really REALLY think that you're onto something with that...

gillis said...

Imagine mario came back to montreal. HAHAHAHA. That would hilarious. It would be worse then Brisebois returning.

Habsfan10 said...

Gainey and I agree on something then, because I wanted to play the Fucking Bruins too.

Fuck them. I want them, their jackass fans, and their fuckhead former players/coaches turned media jokes (Cherry, Milbury) to get fucked. I want to see the looks on their faces when the Habs steal game one. When they roll back to the Bell Centre up 2-0. When Lucic takes a wrong turn into DOOM's wheelhouse and gets his cranium caved in. When Tim Thomas starts playing like Tim Thomas again and gives up 8 goals, and when Chara ends game 3 minus 4. When the Bruins slink back to fucking Beantown and the back pages under the Pawtucket Red Sox game notes where they belong.

Moey said...

@L Dude,

You're bang on, I mean it's not like he had to send a message to the Pens by putting Koivu between Laraque and Stewart. He didn't ice a winnning team and I'm sure he wanted to avoid injuries to key players.

lawyergirl77 said...

HF10 - fuck I'm loving your comments/posts hating on the Broons. A ray of hate-filled sunshine in an otherwise shitty morning.

Sonia said...

What HF10 said.

When the series is over, the collective whiiiiiiiine from Boston will be so loud and so long that Bostonians will head to their basements, thinking it's an air raid.
