If anyone has any hockey news, we'd be happy to hear it.

schmeklund says Habs are interested in Patrick, Sharp. I know it not hockey related, give me an e5.

Ian Vitro said...

You should make up stories. "A source close to the Lightning (he lives in a cardboard box beside the arena) told me that the Habs are close to negotiating a deal that would see Lacavalier come to Montreal in exchange for a signed Rocket Richard jersey, 3 draft picks, and Roman Hamrlik." (4hf1)

Or more like the French media makes up - maybe about how Bob Gainey is a racist francophobe and that's why he's getting rid of everyone french. He doesn't even like poutine.

James said...

@Ian Vitro- did you know that Bob Gainey had a long talk with Louis Leblanc before the draft, and that apparently the only condition on which the Habs would draft him is, if he accepted to completely forget how to speak french?
Crazy isn't it? Rejean Tremblay should be reporting it soon...

It looks like we are still looking to trade.

If so, and assuming Bob Gainey reads this website, my advice is as follows.

Untouchables: Markov, Subban.

Prefer not to trade: Lapierre, Pacioretty, AK46 (he's going to be good, trust me).

umm... i've got tickets to see the red vs white game at the saddledome with the team canada hopefulls aug 27th. that's not news but it's pretty cool.

Tom said...

You guys should play EA NHL, trade for all the players we now have, and report on how the team fared. You could give game summeries each day, and let us know how long into the season before someone takes a run at all our new players (I'm guessing warm-up of the first game).

James said...

Tom- I have a friend who did that on NHL 09, he said the skating was incredible and they scored in bunches. He said Spacek hits a lot and Hal Gill sucks donkey ass.

No word yet on whether we get pummeled into submission by Philly, Toronto and Boston...

Olivier said...

Well, I already posted it elsewhere, but, slow news day it is. Basically, PKP said Quebecor is looking forward to help bring a team back in Québec.

It's a tidbit, really, but hey, slow news day...

Not hockey related at all, but because it's a slow news day, and a Monday, and because someone asked for some Doutzen Kroes not so long ago, enjoy (NSFW)

Three guys are convicted of a very serious crime, and they're all sentenced to twenty years in solitary confinement. They're each allowed one thing to bring into the cell with them. The first guy asks for a big stack of books. The second guy asks for his wife. And the third guy asks for two hundred cartons of cigarettes. At the end of the twenty years, they open up the first guy's cell. He comes out and says, "I studied so hard. I'm so bright now, I could be a lawyer. It was terrific." They open up the second guy's door. He comes out with his wife, and they've got five new kids. He says. "It was the greatest thing of my life. My wife and I have never been so close. I have a beautiful new family. I love it." They open up the third guy's door, and he's slapping at his pockets, going "Anybody got a match?"

A penguin`s car starts making a funny sound so he brings it into the garage. The mechanic says it`ll take him a half hour or so to take a look at it so the penguin goes for a walk. He stops to treat himself to an ice cream at a Dairy Queen down the block.
As he wanders back into the garage the mechanic says 'Looks like you blew a seal.'
Mortified and dabbing frantically at his beak the penguin says 'No, it`s just ice cream, honest!'
