The Morning Skate for Thursday, August something or other

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of having A-Rod's baby...
  • Scott Gomez said a bunch of good things yesterday, including his plans to take French lessons. That's it, make him captain;
  • In the next Phoenix twist, Jimmy Balls will get to interview Bettman, Daly and some owners. But who he really wants to question is MLSE Prez Richard Peddie, because Peddie thinks the Golden Horseshoe isn't big enough for the both of them, or some other such nonsense that's most likely true;
  • NHL released the pre-season sched yesterday (Vegas baby!), and the Habs have some games in September that may be interesting, like Ottawa coming to visit and a game in Quebec City. September 17th is the first one, with our new coach's old team coming to visit;
  • La Presse's François Gagnon has his head so far up Cube's ass he can smell his breath. Or something.
Insert semi-witty closing comment here.

Are you going to readjust your countdown clock for the Sept 17th puck drop?

This thread needs a little class, a little refinement.

Sensibility, you know? Like, art. True, uncompromising art.

In these dog days of summer, a little stroll down Dou$harek lane.

good times, moeman

@hockeyzombie - i don't think so. if the puck drops during the pre-season, does anyone hear it?

@ olivier - outstanding. but a day early

September 17 is my birthday, and I get Florida.
The real home opener is on my brother's birthday, and he gets the Avalanche (only ok if Mara punches Tucker). My poor mom gets some Blue Jackets game in November...

That's a rather quick pre-season, and to start off with 5 games in a row? Good thing they split the squad. Stupid Olympics.

O god I hope the QC game doesn't do well, then we'll hear rumors of JB moving Phoenix there.

So many new faces...
Where the fuck twat is our preview?
It's been a long, awful and boring ride since we were swept. Where the cock lunch is our preview about how long, awful and boring the next season is going to be?

PS I'd rather have Gaborik at 6.5 than Gomez at fuck_us_all.0

God fucking cunt fuck I'm arbitrarily angry tonight.
