The Morning Skate for Monday, October 5th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of making the finals...
  • In case you missed in in the comments yesterday, Rhino is out 6 weeks;
  • So Swiss Mister II has been called up to "bolster" the D;
  • Despite our many, many problems, Jack Todd thinks the Habs are Spunky;
  • The NHLPA is so messy, six hours on the phone couldn't help;
  • The Isles may be on the move. The Hamilton Islanders has a nice pathetic ring to it;
  • We're trying to stretch here, because no games were played yesterday to report on.
Commence Monday morning hand-wringing now.

Thought to make your day: According to the Ottawa Citizen (http://www.ottawacitizen.com/sports/early+push+panic+button+Leafs+defence/2067156/story.html#) "Mike Komisarek and François Beauchemin, signed in the offseason to bolster the blue-line, have either been on the ice or in the penalty box for all 10 goals Toronto has allowed."

GoldenGirl11 said...

Hey Bob, sign Chelios and let him retire a Hab.

Boob Gainey said...

Tom: you made my day with that factoid.

moeman said...

Good read about Cammi .

WV = zingur, as in hey Dou$harek, zing U R now a pugnacious, belligerent, truculent and testoterone-filled Burkian leaf, enjoy being the next tie domi.

Anyone else catch Joel Bouchard on CHOM this morning? Oh yea, he's totally pushed the panic button. Apparently to him 4 months means Markov is gone for the year and the season is a complete wash. Thanks a lot, Chicken Little. Makes the other guys left on the team feel sooooo much better.

Not sure how I feel knowing this guy is an assistant coach to our Montreal Juniors either.....

moeman said...

Joel the asssucker should worry more about his hair and always agreeing 1000% with Coach Demers.

Is there not a law on the books forbidding supporting comments regarding anything that giant fucktard Don Cherry says? Jack Todd ran afoul of that law when he wrote that DC was on the mark with his comment about taping the tongue of the skate up to protect the ankle tendons, and how this would have saved Markov and Lang from injury. Last time I checked, Lang's severed Achilles tendon is located at the back of his ankle. I haven't seen a skate where the tongue would protect against an injury back there. Let the powers that be, throw the book at Jack for this one.

They should name them the Hamilton HIGHlanders. The joke would end up being on the Quebecers who wouldn't even know the name has been changed. They could have Tartan uniforms, a Scottish theme etc...Could work.

Boob Gainey said...

If Markov misses 4 months he'll miss 60 games.

I think pushing the panic button is eminently reasonable.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Everyone set your alarms. Ice capades. Tie domi and Christine Hough-Sweeney engage in Battle of the Blades. Sundays - CBC (that's plural as in series).

fiik said...

kakkin big times a Bitchchemin and Cumi, I habes to shields my eyes when I see dere plus/minuses jer.

L Dude said...

@GG11: I actually tuned in to see the final skate and that's who it was. I watched the recap to see who else was involved. Some reactions:

- Ron Duguay still has awesome hair.
- I'm jealous of Craig Simpson (skating with Jamie Salé)
- Ken Daneyko reminds of Michael Chikless (or whatever the hell his name is - from The Shield)
- Stephane Richer (*cough grecian formula *cough) and Glenn Anderson seem to fit right in

And I'm pretty sure Ron McLean grabbed Jamie Salé's left tit at the end of the show. So I'm jealous of him too.

off topic. The Cleveland Show sucks ass.

gillis said...

I agree with LD that the cleveland show sucks

L Dude said...

I didn't imagine it:
McLean the Tit Grabber

Tom said...

It's the Olympics screwing things up this year. If Markov was to come back Feb. 1 (exactly four months), he would have 26 games left to play, plus an Olympic break. If it was a normal year, he would have about 33 games or so.

kevincrumbs said...

@moeman: I think I can forgive Squid for growing up as a Leafs fan. When we're young, we do silly things like vomit into a styrofoam cup at a diner at 2am from consuming something like seven whiskeys. Yeah.

@GG11: I thought about Chelios too but then thought that I was delusional so I kept my mouth shut about it.

HabsFan29 said...

I'm watching TSN That's Hockey and there was a whole piece on Toronto's goaltending problems. And defensive problems. I feel better now.

Chel-ly! Chel-ly! Chel-ly! We can just make him captain too!

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Kevin
I thinks it's beshert (meant to be). Other than '93,the ghosts have sent a clear message. We suck no matter what we do. By getting Chelios we right the worst trade in history which in itself was trying to right the worst draft choice in history which might just reverse the start of our slide into mediocrity. Think about it. If god were pure laine would Savard have hoisted the cup in a suit? I don't think so. It was a message to bring Chelios back. Now we need someone with his skill and his leadership to do what Schneider did last year AND bring the ghosts to their new home. Seems Pierre Turgeon didn't quite get that job done.

moeman said...

If Sergei was to somehow become a leaf (stop laughing) and lined up with Grabitchski, would their line be called the Tit Grabbers?

Number31 said...

I know Wings fans complained a lot about Chelibot and how the new NHL would skate right by him last year, but yea, I wouldn't cry if he was signed for cheap. If anything it would make Patches and Weber SUPER happy.

moeman said...

Good.

Ode to Pierre McGuire

So, there you sit with shaven head.
The lights bounce off your dome.
You can't speak well of those in red.
You cut down poor Guillaume.

You laud the leafs grit ratio
while screaming love of blue,
and giving Burke fellatio
in praise of his "tough" crew.

You kiss the arse of Lucy's bitch
until your lips are sore.
I guess leaf love can make you rich,
you shrieking, taunting boor.

Some say you really know the game
and you're worth a listen,
But still you grant unearned acclaim,
with your head a-glisten.

Now your hubris grows still greater:
You dissed The General.
Said he'll fail without the traitor,
his star ephemeral.

But we know why you're such a knob
and why you treat us rough.
It's 'cause you don't have Gainey's job.
You weren't good enough.

Boob Gainey said...

Chelios for Savard was bad but it isn't even the worst trade by the Habs in the 90's.

gillis said...

@moeman: Mcguire gives burke fellatio errday.

I must admit i thought it was pretty funny when mcguire was rejected as GM of the wild.

moeman said...

@gillis, you got that right. magwired is deepthroating Blue Pride like never before. Something gives and methinks peeair is just waiting for ron wilson to be (eventually) shown the door.

moeman said...

The complete oposite of belligerence, pugnasity, testosterone and truculence.

kevincrumbs said...

@moeman: Seeing the Dalai Lama with a Habs jersey is the most surreal thing I've seen in awhile. I hope Jacques Plante is okay with sharing his number.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Boob
Not the worst trade? Ever? Savard played 3 seasons for the habs, scored 179 points and retired shortly thereafter. Chelios was in his prime and just from the time that Savard retired in '97 Chelios was elected to 3 All Star games, 2 Olympics, won 2 Stanley cups, a plus minus award and a Messier Leadership Award (WTF is that anyway, the guy retired like ten minutes ago and there's already an award for him?). This was about bringing home the Quebecer who was shafted in the draft and sending away the young hot headed American. One of those politically motivated trades. Very. Very. Bad.

@Moeman
The Dali Lama may be the complete opposite of belligerence, pugnasity, testosterone and truculence but does he have a slapshot.

GoldenGirl11 said...

And is that Rejean Houle behind the Dali Lama? Hard to tell.

moeman said...

@GGal11, "but does he have a slapshot"

Does Dou$harek?

gillis said...

Sergei is finally going to hamilton according to RDS

GoldenGirl11 said...

"Bubby makes great chicken soup but does she have a slap shot". Just a family saying. Let me try it out with yours...

A douche bag is a piece of equipment for douching—a bag for holding the fluid used in douching. To avoid transferring intestinal bacteria into the vagina, the same bag must not be used for a vaginal douche and an enema.... but does he have a slap shot.

Yup. It works.

moeman said...

@GG11, Je t'aimes.

Also, for réjean and bertrand and anti-CH and attaque~à5 and ckac and the CyberPresse guy (Labbée?) who screamed "RUMEURS!";

Etymology

The word "douche" comes from the French language, in which its principal meaning is a shower (it is thus a notorious false friend encountered by non-native speakers of English; the French phrase for vaginal douching is douche vaginale, meaning vaginal shower). The word "douche" is also used in English as a derogatory slang term (see slang uses below).

Douchebag, or simply douche, is considered to be a pejorative term in North America, the United Kingdom and some other English speaking countries. In some English speaking countries the term is not well known. The slang usage of the term dates back to the 1960s.[6] The term implies a variety of negative qualities, specifically arrogance and engaging in obnoxious and/or irritating actions without malicious intent. It is generally used for males only.

GoldenGirl11 said...

And again, ladies, the use of the douche is not advised by the gyne. Especially in this case where it would not only irritate the vagina but probably get you pregnant and then move to Toronto.

@ GG11, Shiraz on the iMac24 screen funny.

@Moe
Shiraz. A fine choice. Hope you missed the keyboard.

moeman said...

@GG11, it (le clavier) is protected.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
Then no need to douche. Smart move.

That sound you heard was Vancouver exploding.

Just what we needed. Thanks for nothing, BJs!
