The Morning Skate for Friday, December 18th

Bullet points for what you missed whiled dreaming of a topless Rihanna...
  • Well, we can think of at least 3 good things about the Habs' 3-1 loss to the Wild. 1. Habs got of the schneid and had 30 shots. 2. Gui! didn't score. 3. We were out getting tanked at our office Christmas party and missed the whole thing;
  • Unlike the Habs, the Rangers ended their losing streak;
  • Pens win another battle of PA;
  • Jimmy Howard (who?) gets his first career shutout for the Wings;, but Wings fans are more worried about Zetterberg getting injured from a huge hit;
  • Thrash win a wild one over the Stars.
Sexy Friday has been canceled until the Habs win a fucking game.

"Sexy Friday has been canceled until the Habs win a fucking game."

Damn. Which do I root for? The Habs to lose every game forever or the return of sexy ladies?

@Corny: Just remember if you root for the Habs to lose every game, you have to do the same for the Leafs in order to get your high draft pick.

It's a sad day. On the 7th day of Christmas, 29 cancelled Sexy Friday. Henceforth known as Black Friday - FHF edition.

Our team blows. And I'm not convinced that the return of Markov & Gionta will save it.

I was thinking, if this upcoming road trip is a total bust and the Habs come home with say only 4 or 5 points, the 'fans' will be demanding Gainey's head on a platter.

Question is "Who's out there right now that could replace him AND right this ship?" Is there anybody?
Patrick Roy with no experience?
Jacques Martin? Yikes.
Pierre McSplooge? See above.
How about Bob McKenzie if we're looking at hockey 'analysts'?

I'd like to see Elmer Lach and Butch Bouchard as co-GM's so that one could work while the other napped. But that won't likely happen. PFff.

My Sexy Friday

No more Sexy Fridays. Ever. That's a shame.

L Dude said...

I think in light of recent news that Markov is BACK (you know - if Jacques Martin feels like putting him in the lineup tomorrow - WHAT THE FUCK IS THERE TO DECIDE EXACTLY?!), Sexy Friday should be returned with a bevy of Russian babes!

Seriously though, we're missing our all star defencmen and one of our top two wingers. Is it really that suprising we're in the 7-13 slot battling for a playoff spot.

Price, Pleks and Big tits are all having breakout seasons and our team can actually play defense.

Gomez is kind of useless right now but when Gionta back we'll actually have two lines which means that our opponents wont be able to focus on just the one which should mean more goals overall. Add to that a better PP and overall D with Markov and we should actually be a playoff team, maybe even a competitive one.

Has the sky really fallen just yet?

Ben I am intrigued by your ideas and would like to subscribe to your newsletter

Ben Dugas said...

Thanks. There's not newsletter in the works as of yet but here's some more from the bin:
I heard Gainey forbids his players to speak French in the dressing room, kicks anyone in the groin who speaks French in his office and actually traded away Gui! because he knew he would be great and wanted to sabatoge the nation of pure lain.
