The Weekend Open Thread of Love Makes its Triumphant Return

I just figured out one good thing from the Habs exit. TWOTOL (pronounced twat-all) is back, baby! And it's chock full o' redheads for Panger.

For those of you new around here, TWOTOL is the place for you to talk about anything. Care to discuss Ovie's highlight reeler from last night? Want to dis Torts for benching Avery? Stamkos lighting it up against Belarus? Share a recipe? Are you watching a game? Hockey? Hoops? Baseball? (Go Jays? WTF is up with them?) TWOTOL is the place to share your thoughts. Are you outside on this 25 degree and sunny day in Montreal? No worries, TWOTOL will be here when you get back.

Of course bitching about the Habs is always cool, even if TWOTOL is all about the love. What do you love?

I fully support the redheads in this post.

Sportswise, last night was pretty awesome.

Torts went crazy, rags got shut out, sox came back with two homers.

Jason Bay is a good canadian boy.

Liverpool still in the running to win the English League...a long shot though. As much chance as the Habs had when they got into the playoffs. But they wont get close to my Red Devils.

Boobs.

Redhead on the right knows what's up.

What Shutdown said.

South Shore Habs Fan said...

Mmmm redheads.


So, this Glen Hanlon fellow. I hear he can coach Belarussians, and that he's a former goaltender. Though he doesn't speak French...

Thoughts?

@SSHF - oublie ça

@moeom - didn't see the Man U match today but they're making it sound insane

Pens Flyers starting. I just don't care.

Boob Gainey said...

Man Utd down 2-0 got a penalty that was not a penalty. Same old same old.

Boob Gainey said...

Flyers - that has to hurt.

South Shore Habs Fan said...

For all the bitching people do about how stupid the Habs were in taking Andrei Kostitsyn over Jeff Carter in the 2003 draft, they had identical playoff stats this year. We'll see how each of them does next season (I think Carter may have plateau'd - I hope Kosty hasn't)

moeman said...

Hey media wads, your Flyers couldn't get by the 1st round, discuss.

gillis said...

flyers suck

Boob Gainey said...

When the net was empty Carter lost the puck to Crosby at centre ice. Then he just stopped skating. If he had skated back he would have been in position to stop Crosby from scoring.

I love ... Toews' playoff sideburns. Kid knows he can't grow a proper beard; employs hilarious hair-growing alternative.

cottoneye said...

I love Toews period.

I love fried chicken.

I love Versteeg. (Actually, I really just love how the Hawks fans turned him into a mythological creature. It's pretty awesome).

Boob Gainey said...

Liverpool have a billionaire interested in buying them.

Could mean "Oncle Georges" keeps the Habs.

HabsFan29 said...

@Boob - there's more money in India than i thought

looking forward to seeing how the Rangers react without Torts today.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

That picture never gets old. Ever.

That is all.

Olivier said...

@SSH:I for one, would really love it if the Habs found a fast skating, hard hitting, two-way aware 6-3 C who would be kind enough to "plateau" as a 45 goals man at 24.

moeman said...

This, never gets old.

HabsFan29 said...

Hungary plays hockey?

fezworth said...

@HF29: Apparently not.

South Shore Habs Fan said...

@ Olivier
I agree that not taking a centre was stupid in hindsight, but at the time the Habs had Saku and future fucking All-Star Mickey "little bitch" Ribs, and were in desperate need of a pure goal-scorer to complement them (last player to hit 40G: Damphousse in '94; last player to hit 50G: Richer in '90). Kostitsyn was projected to go in the top 5, but fell because of his epilepsy. At the time, we thought we were getting a steal.

Besides, I think Carter is overrated. I should've said "peaked," rather than "plateaued." To me, he's a 35G/season guy whose numbers were inflated by playing on a ridiculously offense-heavy team that's gonna be decimated by the coming cap decrease.

Besides, the biggest steals that draft were Parise and Richards, fuck I'd love to have either of those guys.



Okay, fuck. Looking at the 2003 draft was a BAD IDEA.

Canadiens take Cory Urquhart (currently still in the AHL) at 40th
Patrice Bergeron goes at 45th
Shea Weber goes at 49th

Canadiens take Max Lapierre at 61st
David Backes goes at 62nd

On the bright side - W00T!! RANGERS GOT THEIR ASS KICKED AT HOME! yesssssss!

Go Ovie Go!

Perhaps hockey won't be dead to me after all after the 1st round.
