The Game Day Skate for Friday, September 18th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of your FLQ past...
Habs on TV tonight! RDS at 7:30, the Kovy-less Sens will be in town, as Jacques Martin gets to face his second old team in as many nights. Speaking of Martin, come back later this morning for a killer Stripperriffic Preview. For no reason whatsoever, here's a TMS fave, Olivia Wilde in GQ to start your Sexy Friday off right. Have a good one. And Shana Tova to Squid and all the other Jews out there.

Gomez: "It's a good feeling, but a pre-season goal is still a pre-season goal. It's still hockey and I still love to score. I don't get too many of them..."

"Hi Bob. Gomez returning your call... changes... Uh huh.... Wow, that's a lot of money.... and your expectations?... Goal scoring? Well, to be completely honest, I don't get too many of them.... call me a playmaker... like Wayne... he did? THAT MANY???.... Really?... Well I'll try really really hard(ish), k?...".

Reports say O'Byrne did well.

The parts of the game I saw he still doesn't know what to do with the puck. He just skates around aimlessly until he either loses the puck or makes a bad pass.

Sure he can hit and he'll fight, but he will soon be behind Subban and Weber. Maybe we should cut out losses now and trade him.

I was watching the Nucks/Ducks game last night. It was really effing weird to see Koivu in a Ducks uniform. Fucking bizarre.

Saw the Habs highlights... Dec. 23rd collapse is inevitable

@Van Hab,

Apparantly it freaked Koivu out too when he first put it on. I was just reading an article in the LA Times about the Nucks/Ducks game last night, he says he was as nervous as a kitten. It's a big adjustment for sure. He'll be fine.

Agreed. Something tells me that once you've survived cancer nothing else is that big a deal. He'll be great.

More importantly I think Cammalleri should be benched tonight. Hockey instead of synagogue is just asking for an injury... or at least that's what my bubby used to say. Shana tova to all.
