The Morning Skate counts to six for Wednesday, June 3rd

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of trying to Tweet from China...
  • Well, for one day at least we have a series. Thank fucking god. Max Talbot pots two in the Pens' 4-2 win over the Wings. MAF finally won a goalie battle with Osgood. Sid is still a zombie, but Malkin came alive with 3 helpers. Two PP goals for the Pens, including Gonchar's winner after one of those interference calls where you think to yourself "Seriously? It's the 3rd period of a FUCKING STANLEY CUP FINALS GAME". And the refs did more too, ignoring about 20-25 seconds of Pittsburgh too many men on the ice. Your photo evidence is above. I'm sure Bettman had nothing to do with any of this;
  • In case you missed it in the comments late yesterday, Quebecor Prez Pierre-Karl Péladeau was suprised the Habs hired a coach before an ownership change. Keeping his mouth shut does not seem to be one of M. Péladeau's strong suits;
  • The French press dreams of François Allaire as the new Habs goalie coach.
Seize the Wednesday people.

Seize some Pearl Jam kids.

That too-many-men uncalled was pretty hilarious.

Krejci got re-signed to the bruins for a 3-year deal. WOOOO

Go pens.

Habs still suck, bee tee dubs.

@ Cornelius:

I guess someone will have to make an offer to Kessel instead.

Bruins still suck more, fyi.

Boob Gainey said...

Krejci 2009-2010 = Plekanec 2008-2009.

Just watch.

HF10 - no need to specify that the Broons "still" suck. I believe that physicists have developed a formula that, in fact, proves that the Bruins' suckitude is one of the constants of the universe...

Kmaxx said...

Here we go...serving at 15-30...Corny...

Boob Gainey said...

Serge Savard says with the Molsons in the picture, he is staying out of it.

He also says he hopes they get the Habs, rather than "people who talk about convergence".

Bien dit, Sénateur.

fezworth said...

Scary. Péladeau is basically saying:

"When Quebecor buys the Habs, I will put my little fingers into all the pies. Hockey Operations, maybe a bit of coaching.. I may even dabble with suiting up for a game or two."

HabsFan29 said...

So looks like we're all in agreement a Quebecor purchase would be a fucking nightmare.

Boob Gainey said...

We all assumed the nightmare of the 100th season ended when we were swept out of the playoffs.

Maybe it didn't.

Robbie said...

Quebecor, sure just what this town and fucking team needs more fucking fuck-heads, assholes, pie mouths, over done, over used, out of touch, talking head, dick faced MEDIA fucks. Can you fucking possibly imagine just how fucked up this team could potentially get if Peladeau and his gang buy this team. Maybe, just maybe we'll get to see heads bashing against Zamboni's in the middle of the ice by Idiot Centre security. All caught live on tape by RDS to be analyzed and debated by that fucked up group of losers at ANIT-CHAMBRE and 110%. Oh fucking Joy. Someone pass the Scotch please.

Hadulf said...

Delayed penalty call maybe?

James said...

For once, maybe the french press is right about something. François Allaire is an excellent goalie coach and if there was any way possible to get him here, it would be great.

moeom said...

Red Wings got robbed! Bullshit refereeing int he playoffs Final. Missed calls and Bad calls killed the game for Red Wings, and they still almost won it. If it wasn't for the goalie's best friend.

Anyway, another good fact...last 5 stanley cup winners had lost their game 3's. :D So its looking good for Detroit.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

I'm not sure what your commie Quebecois physicists are smoking, but the Habs still suck. So do offseasons.

See y'all around.

Boob Gainey said...

Correction: the Habs sucked this year.

The Bruins suck. It's part of their essence.

Number31 said...

I think Peladeau borrowed his sister's crack. Give the man a cup of STFU please. Actually, someone should send this to the Habs and kick him out of the race...

Avs fired everyone (almost). People want Allaire to be the goalie coach...but I wonder if Hackett will come instead. He was the last #31 with our Habs too.

Did you know Versus was showing RODEO instead of the fucking playoffs for game 1? Bravo, Bettman...

Boob Gainey said...

We dodged a bullet!

If Savard had bought the Habs he was planning to have Jacques Demers as his coach.

And Deners was planning to have Benoit Brunet as his assistant.

that's some scary shit right there.

blaz said...

holy shit. i stopped laughing when i realized the article was serious.

moeman said...

He's not perfect, none of us are but man is my respect for Serge Savard growing. As a player, CHampion, Captain, GM, cool-shaded dude and all around classy man, #18, in my Habs fans' eyes, has surpassed Guy LaFleur, as an all-around fave Hab. Bonus, he never played for the NYR or the nordicks. Go Jets! Go Habs!

punkster said...

Holy Mother of GOD!!! You've got to be kidding. Demers? AAAaaarrrrgggghhhhh.....
