I was wearing an onion on my belt 16 years ago


So 16 years ago today the Habs beat the Kings to win their 24th Stanley Cup, which will most likely be their last at this rate. To make you feel better on this dreary gray day about the further delay of Alexei Yemelin, please enjoy this compilation video of the 10 OT winners from the 1993 Playoffs. Highlights include:
  • Ron Hextall going apeshit;
  • The little prick Gilbert Dionne thumping his chest in a "me, me, me" move;
  • Jacques Demers holding what we now know to be a prop playbook;
  • Rob Ramage. I swear I don't even remember him being on the team. But then again, back in 1993 I did a lot of drugs. Not like now.
Happy Anniversary.

Bon anniversaire, fuckers.

Traded Leclair and Desjardins after that didn't they?

It wasn't the start of the decline (letting Scotty Bowman go was), but it was the spurt of acceleration on the home stretch to the bottom of the abyss.

That's good stuff 29. Good memories. Ha! I thought the same thing about Ramage (I watched the video before reading your comments).

I also enjoyed Hrudey being deked out of his jock strap by Leclair (FUCK I was pissed when he was traded! - Leclair, not Hrudey)

TSN reporting Heatley wants out of Ottawa.

Wonder what the Habs could use to get him?

@ Tom: Halak, Ryder, O'Byrne and a 1st.

L Dude said...

@10: Don't trade Ryder. I think he's a keeper.

Shouldn't you lawyer types be keeping us informed of the goings-on in Phoenix? I see Sportsnet has a live blog from the event. I like the sounds of the judge based on what I've read so far.

@L Dude - here are my highly trained lawyerly comments about the Phoenix courtroom:

FUCK GARY BETTMAN!!! COCK!!!!

/ thx mom for the 4 years of law school tuition

L Dude said...

Well said 29, well said. I briefly entertained the idea of law, and had I known the technical, yet colourful language one learns during 4 years of school was so impressive, it most likely would have swayed me in that direction.

I'd like to see Jimmy Balls drag Buttman into the desert and drive a 3-pronged cactus up his arse so far that when Gary opens his mouth, you can actually SEE what a prick he is! COCK is right 29!

HabsFan29 said...

just read through the live blog and i agree with you L Dude the judge seems pretty cool. he doesn't seem to be buying into the league's (CAUTION legal term coming up) bullshit

best quote form judge to show how he is leaning: "it didn't seem to wreak havoc when other leagues' teams relocated"

L Dude said...

I picture his as Judge Roy Snyder. Hopefully he is as lenient towards JB as he is towards Bart!

Rob said...

Way to go 29, Fuck that short, squat, dumbo eared, Napolean complex mother fucker!!

L Dude said...

edit - "I picture him as...".

I had a clever thought, but the boss walked in. Now it's gone. Stupid boss.

@Rob

What does Nicolas Sarkozy have to do with hockey?

The two young D-men, Schnieder and Brisebois looked good out there.

Why is CBC not showing us any Babcock Grumpy Face?!

Woo game 7 (though Fleury after all that work almost fucked it up Gold Medal Game style).

Just watched the clinching game again. Breezeby was still useless, even back then. The blue kickboards (instead of yellow) were awesome. Oh, and based on that video, every camera in an American arena was made of dog shit in 1993.

That is all.
