The Morning Skate is finding all these Game Sevens kind of sexy for Wednesday, May 13th

This is of course Jeri Ryan who played Seven on ST:Voyager. Can HF10 get mad at this Star Trek reference?

Yo, what up homeys? Can you believe all this? First off, fuck those fucking WhalerCanes and their collapsing. That's why we like them - they're just like our Habs! Anyway, Tim Thomas, Savard, and Bergeron lead the way as the B's force a Game Seven with a 4-2 win. On the other side of the continent, Jonas Hiller continues to astound and amaze, stopping 38 shots to lead the Ducks to a 2-1 win over the Wings and force another Game Seven.

In other hockey news, RDS has identified one of the "Americans" interested in the purCHase. He's Graeme Roustan, who was actually born in Sherbrooke and grew up in the YUL. He has deep hockey roots, owning Nike Bauer Hockey, lobbying to get hockey to San Jose, building rinks everywhere, and buddying up with Pierre Boivin. Sounds good to us.

Buckle up for the big Pens-Caps Game Seven tonight. Or the Lost finale. Goddamn Yanni.

Whoever buys the Habs, just please let it NOT be Quebecfuckingcor...
(Assuming GG is actually even selling).

I'm still trying to figure out if it's possible to have both the Whalercanes and the Bruins lose...just let the Pens/Caps go for another 7 games.

29, I'm already pissed off about the Bruins/Canes game ... don't push your Trekkie-lovin luck!

Moey said...

Why can't those Bruins just die??????? They're killin me.

Go Pens!!!!!!!!!!

lawyergirl77 said...

GO CAPS GO!!! (Sorry Moey...)

31 - if Quebecor buys the Habs, the fury I will feel may consume me. From a media monopoly/integration perspective alone, we would be so fucked.

The only people who would be more pissed off in such a situation: RDS.

Olivier said...

The problem with Quebecor is, they would make sooooo much money with the Habs, it's insane (I mean real money, that is money made by subsidiaries whose revenue streams aren't part of the official revenue stream of the hockey club, thus safe from those money grabbing southerners).

Sad to say, but I have this sinking feeling they will outbid anyone.

HoustonHab said...

I’m I the only guy who wants the Bruins to win?

I want them in the final so that the Wings can take it all away!

Boob Gainey said...

I want Saputo to buy it.

And then I want him to use his (alleged, never proven) mob connections to completely eliminate the need for an on ice enforcer.

Moey said...

@LG, No apologies required! We both love our Habs, that's all that matters.

Beta169 said...

I'd feel better about this Roustan fella if he didn't own Bauer. I vowed to only wear CCM equipment after Bauer joined the evil empire that is Nike. Fuck the swoosh. Also, if he was instrumental in getting hockey to San Jose, will he bring Shark karma with him, making the Habs dominant in the regular season, only to collapse in the playoffs?

In other news, feel my pain, as I move to Louisiana, where its too humid, they all cheer for LSU, and the state bar doesn't reciprocate with any other state, meaning I get to take another bar exam in February. Someone shoot me.

WV - phinge, as in, I bedded a dirty hippie at a Phish concert and had to get a penicillin shot for the phinge.

@Beta - Tennessee wasn't hot enough for you? Take it (big) easy down there

the thought of writing a Bar exam now freaks me out. good luck

Beta169 said...

HF29 - Louisiana takes hot to a completely different level, like open the door and literally be pushed backwards by the weight of the humidity. I lived in Knoxville, Tennessee, where the seasons are typically much milder than the rest of the south.

As for the bar exam, it wouldn't be so bad if Louisiana wasn't the only place in the US that still uses the Napoleonic Code instead of common law.

@BETA169 how are the Sharks different from say Lats year's Habs?

how depressing to think last year was a fluke and we should gird ourselves for years of tears to come (no matter who buys the Habs)

and the fucking Bruins are still playing. Triple FUCK.
