The Morning Skate waxes philosophical for Thursday, May 21st

Hey kids! Hope you're all doing well this morning. This is one of those mornings where you wonder why on earth you have a hockey blog in the off-season. There were no games last night to report on, and nothing new on the Habs sale or anything else of interest. Sure, there is some bullshit about a buyer for the Coyotes, and Drummondville is off to the Memorial Cup semis, but all in all, bleh. Wake us in September.

But then you think about taking a toke off the Vancouver Olympic torch, and all is better! WhalerCanes-Pensburgh back at it tonight.

Soooo, is it September yet? No? Damn.

So I guess when Gainey says he'll negotiate after the season, he means after the ENTIRE season, whether the Habs are playing or not.

Word: quaguire. Close enough. So....Giggety!

Bit of a threadjack...

Saw this morning on sportsdesk that the Habs are no longer considering Russia coach named Bykov as a head coaching candidate.

Two thoughts:
1) Since when was he being considered in the first place and who is left?

2) I'm actually disappointed. Hiring a Russian would have at least been thinking outside of the box, as opposed to hiring some retread like Crawford or Hartley. Besides, all Anglo fans would then start complaining about his English being terrible and how that is unjust and must be stopped to avoid the death of our nation.

@KML - 2 thoughts back at ya:

1. There is no such thing as a TJ in TMS, but I thank you for your consideration of blog etiquette

2. Who?

L Dude said...

I vote for Tretiak. As an assistant, along with Mats Naslund, also assitant to head coach Patrick Roy.

gillis said...

I vote the Incredible Hulk as coach. He'll keep everyone in line.

Says he was contacted by the Habs.

Boob Gainey said...

Yeah sure he was. I was contacted by the Montreal Symphony.

J.T. said...

How about Mario Tremblay with Roy as assistant? That way, if the team sucks on the ice, we can always be entertained by watching the coaches try to kill each other.

wv: persur. As in "O'Byrne is the Habs' official persur."

The wild have found a new GM and it's not McGuire, it's Fletcher Jr.

Now all they need is a coach

@ KML

Apparently he's the guy who decided that Russia didn't need Kovalev on their team? Why the fuck would Gainey offer him anything?

Though I suppose we should be thanking him on bended knee, as that rejection lit a fire under Kovy's ass for 2007-2008.

Hey...I'm back on my "Bettman must die" high horse for a bit...I read where now we have senators from NY wading into the 'Yotes moving to Hamilton' - saying how bad it would be if Hamilton got a team 'cause it would hurt Buffalo's attendance etc... This has got to be BS on two obvious fronts - firstly how many peopel from Hamilton could be arsed to drive to Buffalo - TO WATCH THE SABRES!!! and secondly - which one of these clowns gets to play the man when Buttman is going down on them...?

I still don't think it will happen but I wish Jimmy Balls all the best of luck...oh yeah - and Bettman must die!!

Only time Hamilton (or general southern Ontario residents) travel to Buffalo for a game is to see the Leafs or Habs. They'd still travel there, and would go an extra set of time to see the Hamilton Coyotes/Tigers/Steel (or whatever). So...by that account... Team in Hamilton = extra money for Buffalo. Idiots.
