We've got the Bell Centre Blues preview and open thread

With apologies to Robert Johnson, moeman, and the Devil...

I went to the Bell Centre, fell down on my knees
I went to the Bell Centre, fell down on my knees
Asked the Lord above "Have mercy, now, save poor Bob if you please"

Yeee, skatin' at the Bell Centre, tried to win a game
Woo-ee-ee, Habs tried to win a game
Didn't nobody seem to know me, babe, 'cept the folks at St. Louis Game Time

Down at the Bell Centre baby, at seven thirty it's goin' down
Down at the Bell Centre baby, wee-ee-ee McSplooge is in town
I believe to my soul, now, poor Pleks is sinkin' down

You can skate, you can skate, tell my friend The CHick-en
You can skate, you can skate, tell my friend The CHick-en
That I got the Bell Centre Blues this mornin', Lord, babe, Habs are sinkin' down

And I went to the Bell Centre, mama, I looked right and left
I went to the Bell Centre, baby, I looked right and left
Lord, I didn't have no sweet woman, ooh like the FHF ladies undressed

Sing the Blues in the comments

I think I got the St. Louis Blues. Seems very fitting that it's the most famous 12 bar blues song and this morning we're in 12th!

moeman said...

+ many undressed FHF ladies for HF29's hommage.

Bonus + many undressed FHF guys to GG for the bluesey Bell Centre background.

... and that's gotta be the nicest suit Count Jacqula ever wore.

I'll blow my horn later.

boob gainey said...

I noticed on one of the Leafs boards that they've already started trashing Taylor Hall.

Tom said...

*slow clap* *tear* GG, 29,
a mazing.

win you son's of whores win......

GoldenGirl11 said...

I just figured it all out. '89 the Habs lose the cup. In a moment of panic the team sells it's soul to the devil for one last chance at glory. The devil collects by taking the forum and the Habs have struggled ever since. It all makes sense now.

Pat Robertson said...

GG11 call me, we need to talk.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Pat
Are you still at 888-700-club?

Kmaxx said...

@GG - Props for that one! Besides, you should know that number belongs to Moe

L Dude said...

GG11: I figure they sold their soul in the '93 playoffs.

Late in game 2 vs. the Kings, a tiny devil with a strong resemeblence to Gary Bettman appears on the shoulder of Jacques Demers. He whispers in his devilish, slimy NY lawyer (no offence guys) accent:
"How would you like to be the last Canadian team to win the cup?"
JD: "For sher! What do I do?"
Devil: Hands him a contract, "Sign here."
....waits for everybody to catch up...
JD: scratch, scratch..."Done."

Moments later, *poof*,(now I hope you're all still picturing a little red Buttman) he appears on the shoulder of Carbonneau. "Hey Guy, how would you like a shot at coaching this team after you retire?"
Carbo: "But I don't know the first thing about coaching."
Devil: "Doesn't matter - you want it or not?"
Carbo: "Sure. Yay."
Devil/GB waves his tiny pitchfork (like the ones you sometimes see in little sandwiches) and says "WHOA! Look at McSorley's stick! You ought to get that checked for an illegal curve." Winks at Carbo (which Roy notices and stores in his memory bank to be used a couple of games later) and the rest as you know is history.

Question is "what was written into that contract on that fateful night?"

We know for sure:
Got the cup. check
Carbo got his shot at coaching. check

High probability that these provisos also existed in that contract:
- Give John Leclair away to an American team
- Move out of the storied Forum
- Leave ghosts behind. Bar from the new building.
- Hire Rejean Houle and Mario Tremblay
- Possibly a mention of meeting at the crossroads in a dozen years. Bring a pen and paper and I'll teach you a few things.

These few clauses, among a few others of which I currently lack the imagination to think of, clearly pave the way for a generation of futility.

Enter 2010. Contract still appears to be in effect.

Kmaxx said...

Hey while we are in St. Louis, maybe a trade is in order - didn't we used to like trading people to St. Louis back in the 70's? So why not McClement for Halak and BGL...just a thought...

moeman said...

@KMaxx, my direct line to Beelzebub ended when I signed my divorce papers.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@LD
That was what I meant only you said it a lot better. I was thinking all of that while negotiating with the 3 year old to pick up the cereal he threw while trying not to laugh as he kept saying "no YOU pick it up dumb ass".

I figured they panicked in '89 and then did the bargaining for '93. Of course in hindsite you're probably way more accurate in the devil just hanging out behind the bench making tempting offers. I saw him more as a lawyer type (sorry guys) filling out 4 years of paperwork before announcing the deal. Why the devil would want a movie theater is beyond me.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
So it was an amicable split then.

moeman said...

@GG, mostly but no more 9th circle of mother-in-law Hell is a load off.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Funny that we play the devils next. Maybe there's a deal in the works.

Anonymous said...

There have been so many lop-sided games lately: 9-1, 8-2, 8-1, etc...

Wouldn`t it be nice to give another team a beating for once?

Is tonight the night they turn it around?

Sigh.

Moey said...

Listen kids, it's not all bad, at least we have McSplooge to look forward to tonight. We can diss him, rip him to shreds and tear him several new ones. That cheers me up.

Jaybird said...

Martin is against all beatings except the one he gives his rug before the game.

Wv: laywar. Is there any better time?

L Dude said...

@Moey: You kmow there is a contingent on HI/O that wants him to replace Gainey? How would we feel about that?

Anonymous said...

10 forwards and 8 D tonight.
I believe that joke writes itself.

D`Agostini and the Vegan sit tonight.

Moey said...

@L Dude,

Speaking strictly on an entertainment level a +10. On a hockey level...oy vay.

David Wilkie's Ghost said...

RE the deal with devil theory:

Don't forget the addition of Youppi and all his nad Expos mojo. If ever there was a team that was hated by the gods, it was the Expos. I just assumed the Habs adopted him as an act of charity, but now I see it was part of a sinister plot.

Hold me. I'm scared.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@David
Wait!!! Maybe Youppi IS the devil!!

moeman said...

My ex-mother-in-law loved Youppi!

~~~

WV = muffeth

moeman said...

This should buy us some love;

The Montreal Canadiens and their fans have donated $159,553 to assist relief efforts in Haiti.

The club posted a video message before home games on January 14 and 16 that said they would match the money that the fans donated at the Bell Centre.

After the fans gave $59,553 over those two dates, the Canadiens not only matched the contribution, but increased their overall contribution to $100,000 because the need in Haiti.

The money was donated to UNICEF.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
If your MIL was the devil and she loved youppi is it possible that she IS Youppi?

L Dude said...

Could it be........Saaaaaytan?!

moeman said...

@GG, she did dye her hair orange(y).

WV = wholl, if my MIL ever reads this blog thread, I'm going straight to wholl.

Boob Gainey said...

You can bash Gainey, Price, Halak, Martin, Saku, Bertrand Raymond all you want.

But I draw the line at Youppi.

moeman said...

@boob, are you a cop that caught Youppi! on a DUI?

~~~

WV = chicsms, as in I love chic sms's

GoldenGirl11 said...

Can someone explain the whole Youppi thing to me please? Doesn't bother anyone that the Canadiens have a mascot? A this-could-be-Nashville-mascot?? Sure he was the face of the Expos, I get that, but to see him jumping up and down in the aisles during a game doesn't disturb anyone? Ok, sure I have a fear of clowns but am I the only one? I picture a Crusty the Clown type inside just smoking and swearing at little kids when the bosses aren't looking. Does it make the game more fun? What is it? I need to understand.

moeman said...

@GG, I think there was serious pressure from the pure woolers to not let Youppi! just fade away with the Expos. Methinks the CH acquiesced but it was either the orange wooled whatCHmacallit vs. bringing back a clown like Mario Tremblay.

WV = reekils, as in the Habs' reekils me

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
Now if Mario was IN the Youppi outfit with, say, your MIL, THEN I wouldn't mind the muppet hanging around so much.

moeman said...

@GG, who would suit up in the ass portion of the Youppi! suit?

Boob Gainey said...

Stop the Youppi hate.

HabsFan29 said...

YOUPPI! IS GOD PEOPLE, NOT THE DEVIL

moeman said...

WiKi knows:

Youppi!, a creation of Acme Mascots, Inc. (a division of Harrison/Erickson, Inc.), was commissioned by Expos vice-president Roger D. Landry. Originally leased by the team in 1979, the mascot was eventually purchased by the Montreal Expos baseball and represented the team until they moved to Washington, DC, after the 2004 season. Youppi! was designed by Bonnie Erickson, formerly a designer for Jim Henson, and the creator of Miss Piggy, Statler & Waldorf and other Muppets. The orange, hairy giant was one of the most popular figures among children at Olympic Stadium, where he was often seen running around with his arms waving wildly during baseball games.

Youppi! was the first mascot to be thrown out of a Major League Baseball game: on August 23, 1989, in the 11th inning, while atop the visitors' dugout, Youppi! took a running leap, landing hard and noisily on its roof, and then snuck into a front row seat. Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda complained to the umpires and Youppi! was ejected, though he later returned, confined to the home team's dugout roof. Youppi! was also a frequent joke punchline of notoriously sarcastic Atlanta Braves broadcaster Skip Caray.
Youppi! is often referred to as one of only three mascots inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame. The others are the Phillie Phanatic of Philadelphia, another Erickson design, and the Famous Chicken from San Diego. Although their likenesses can be found in the displays in Cooperstown, their inductions to the Hall of Fame are not considered "official".
After the Expos moved to the District of Columbia and became the Washington Nationals, the team claimed that Youppi! would still be a part of the team in some capacity. However, this proved untrue, as the Nationals adopted a new mascot, the eagle "Screech". For months after the move, the fate of Youppi! hung in the balance. Negotiations were held with ten groups, including the Montreal Alouettes.[1]

On September 16, 2005, the Montreal Canadiens announced that Youppi! would become the first official mascot of the organization, and the first league-switching mascot in professional sports history. The terms of acquisition were reportedly in the six figures.[1] Youppi! now sports the Canadiens' bleu-blanc-rouge (blue, white, and red) jersey. Youppi's first game in the Bell Centre was on October 18, 2005.

The Bruins one is hilarious.

lehab said...

I'm with gg on this youppi issue. its like BGL in a CH uni...it just doesn't fit.
as for the devil, you are all wrong..its my ex. I met her in the fall of 95. The best goalie in the world was traded 2 months later. 3 months after that the best hockey arena in the world closed. the next month my hometown Jets moved to the desert. She hates hockey and anything to do with Montreal so it has to be true.. I could write pages of material backing up this theory, but enough people in Winnipeg already know the truth.

wv= pirelift lmao

kevincrumbs said...

You know things are bad when we start to question the contract Gainey handed Youppi...

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
Your call and if I had to guess I'd say that there wasn't much of a difference smell-wise between the head and the ass of that costume.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Kevin
Hilarious!

HabsFan29 said...

@L Dude - i just clued into your Church Lady reference. well done

Boob Gainey said...

How anyone can read Youppi!'s wiki page and not admire him is beyond me.

moeman said...

From Habs i/o;

Carey Price will be in goal tonight against the St. Louis Blues and it appears that Jacques Martin will dress eight defencermen with the return of Ryan O'Byrne.

Georges Laraque and Matt D'Agostini are targeted as healthy scratches and Mathieu Darche, who was called up from Hamilton on Tuesday will play with Michael Cammalleri and Tomas Plekanec.

Le Douze said...

[with sympathy for moeman and his MIL problem]

Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a team's soul and faith
And I was 'round when Carey Price
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Allan Walsh
Tweeted his stuff and sealed Jaro's fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I stuck around St. Louisbourg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed D'Agger and Mara's hopes
BGL screamed in vain

I rode a plank
Held a scorer's s skank
When the Stanleys raged
And the players stank

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
What's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

I watched with glee
While your Forwards and Ds
Fought for ten decades
For the Cups they took

I shouted out
"Who killed the playoff runs?"
When after all
It was you and me

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for team of late
Who get killed before they reached play in May

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game

Just as every D-man is a criminal
And all the goalies saints
As Cups are lost
Just call me Carbo man
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or I'll lay your team to waste, um yeah

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um baby, get down

Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!

Tell me Moey, what's my name
Tell me GG, baby guess my name
Tell me Moey, what's my name
I tell you one time, you're to blame

Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah

What's my name
Tell me, Moey, what's my name
Tell me, GG, what's my name

Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah



WV: ingerr (thank Jebus nobody's ingerred now).

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Boob
I love the muppets. The little muppets. I just think that Youppi looks less like a lovable friend cheering on an exciting game and more like a great hideout for a pedophile.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@LeChaim
Nicely done.

I'm sensing a songwriting controversy.

moeman said...

That was awesome Le12.

(BTW, the MIL and her daughter left almost 10 years ago but I stopped counting at 1).

Also, fave Muppets are Fozzy Bear and Ernie cuz they have great laughs.

GoldenGirl11 said...

For the record, Jim Henson was a genius. And Telly makes me laugh. A neurotic monster.

L Dude said...

I know we don't generally get into trade speculation around here. Leave that for Eklund and his minions, I know.
But I feel that IF Gainey does end up trading Halak, St. Louis is the team he ends up on.
And the return isn't going to be anything special. Maybe Ty Conklin and a 3rd. We will still need a backup. No point in Cedric warming the bench in Montreal.
Maybe other names get thrown in to make it a bigger deal, but it's just a feeling I have.

Anonymous said...

@GG11

i agree -- moeman's redition on Sympathy was spectacular, let's see how long this sits...

maybe this requires a new library of the song parodies ?

Le Douze said...

@moe - I always liked the two old farts who sat up in the balcony and made fun of everyone.

@GG - next time one of your wee bairns is watching the Star Wars with Yoda, close your eyes and think "Yoda Grover is". It will make it much more tolerable for about 30 seconds. (Though not as much as several strong belts of vodkov.)

kevincrumbs said...

Squid and Pleks with Darche? I felt bad for them until I remembered that they make millions a year.

Still, WTF.

Speaking of the Blues, anyone ever see those ads featuring Jon Hamm from "Mad Men"? I remember when we had Eric Gagne on some poster at the Bell Centre. Sigh...

moeman said...

Sympathy For The Dou¢Harek was easy and fun cuz I got to smack #8 around. Next leaf game I am penning "Little Douche Coupe".

The two old Muppets Statler and Waldorf remind me of ballard and clancy in the mlg loft.

Le Douze said...

@anon - no problem, just as long as you guys don't fucking trade me to Pension Plan Puppets! (I could maybe handle Interchangeable Parts).

GoldenGirl11 said...

@LeChaim
We have passed the Star Wars phase, thank god, and by the time the 4th is interested I'll be in a Seniors residence I'm sure.


@KC
Greatest show ever.

moeman said...

As for tonight's gameday parody, the title is "Habs are rellin' in da years".

Bonus for anyone that knows what a Steely Dan is. No Googling!

WV = aling, as in hé, toué, D'ArCHe, aling toué avec La Pieuvre et le gars avec le pull-over à col roulé.

moeman said...

rellin' = reelin'

@GG, yes Mad Men is a fantastic show. So is Dexter.

Le Douze said...

@@GG - lucky you are.

HabsFan29 said...

Moe you know classic rock trivia is right in my wheelhouse.

It's a dildo.

GoldenGirl11 said...

I challenge any of you to a classic rock triviathon. I will win.

moeman said...

@GG, so long as there's no Elton, Genesis (post Peter Gabriel), Styx or SuperTramp, you're on.

L Dude said...

Just quickly before we leave the muppet theme. I received the box set of Farscape for Christmas. What an amazing show! If you like muppets and sci-fi (I ain't talkin' PIGS IN SPACE here), then you'll love this. I'd never heard of it before. she's in it. So is he. My wife says he's hot. I guess he's ok.

L Dude said...

If there's a song parody library or hall of fame shall we call it, I demand MY LITTLEST HOBO be inducted. That was my Al Bundy high school quarterback moment. Sheds tear.

wv = stale. About sums up our Habs, doesn't it.

bea.habs.fan said...

@LD love Farscape. followed it while I lived in Europe insteda of hockey until I found the Canadian bar!!!! then it was just a question of staying up and not celebrating (or fighting) when we came out of the bar.

we should trade BGL for Miss Piggy and dress our small forwards in frog green. NOBODY would ever mess with us again.

WV: spite - so many possibilities

Moey said...

@GG,

Clowns are creepy, think Stephen King's Pennywise. *shudder*

I remember reading that book, we were at our chalet over Christmas, it was pitch black outside and I was alone and getting totally creeped out by Pennywise when there was a loud knock at the door. It scared the living shite right out of me.

Youppi must die.

HabsFan29 said...

Habs vs. Leafs in toddler form

I guarantee you will go "awwwww"

Well done on snatCHing post #69 Moey.

moeman said...

Habs are Reelin' In The Years

Your everlasting 93 summer you can see it fading fast
So you grabbed a piece of The Forum that you think is gonna last
Well you wouldn't even know a Stanley if you held it in your hands
The things Habs fans think are precious, I can understand.

Habs are reelin' in the years
Stowed away the Flower?
Are you remembering those Rocket tears?
Have you had enough of no first line?

Habs are reelin' in the years
Roy fucked off just in time?
Are you having leaf fan fears?
43 years is a long fucking time!

I've been telling myself Bob's a genius since he took over our team
In all the time I've praised Bob I still don't know what that means
The weekend at the collège didn't turn out like Gu:( planned
The things that pass for knowledge Habs i/o can't understand.

Habs are reelin' in the years
Blowing games all the time!
They're starting to grind my gears
We need a clutCH in overtime!

Habs are reelin' in the years
In HF29's wheelhouse this song's fine.
Muppets lovers far and near
Fozzy Bear's a fave of mine?

We've spent a lot of money, we've had beers of all kinds
The trips we make to Habsland are etCHed upon our minds
After all the things our FHF ladies do, we're still their #1 fan
To think us guys are useless, meh, we just use the other hand.

Habs are reelin' in the years
Urologist can't turn on a dime?
Start gathering up your pants
Cuz in public its a crime?

Habs are reelin' in the years
They use to be divine?
Instead of CHeers we now get jeers
Sad to see our club's decline?

Go Habs Go!

GoldenGirl11 said...

Outstanding!! Love Steely Dan (except that song Josie, hate that one).

GoldenGirl11 said...

Penalty to the count for that tie/jacket combo.

kevincrumbs said...

Chicken! Carey deserves an assist on that goal...

HabsFan29 said...

CHicken! Praise The Colonel!

hfotwc said...

carey wakes up the chicken!
s'carey chicken?

orangeman said...

No, no, no. This is the new strategy. Habs realized that if you go up 2-0 early, you end up losing (from experience). So this time they thought they'd try it the other way around. Genius, really.

TSN is the one showing the game but their site says it hasn't started yet. Way to keep up with the information age there, The StoneAge Network. Also, even though they usually show a live feed on their site you can't watch it from out of the country, so I'm stuck here checking updates on various sites like some sort of animal. You know, the type of animal who loves losers. Like a hyena or something.

hfotwc said...

@orangeman

try atdhe.net

orangeman said...

See, the plan is already taking hold. Chicken! Finger lickin' good! Wait....

WV: hookedd. I'm 'hookedd' on this team like a whore on her abusive pimp.

orangeman said...

@hfotwc: Yeah, I know about that. Thanks though. The problem is I'm at work and they block such sites. And radio's out because I obviously can't let anyone hear the game. One could argue that I should, you know, not watch a hockey game at all when at work. To them I say suck my Giant Mexican Chicken.

kevincrumbs said...

Great pass from Hamr to Winchester.

kevincrumbs said...

I'm scared because I find myself agreeing with McSplooge about Rhino playing as a forward. Then again, JM's moves have been really bizarre.

orangeman said...

In the updates it says Conklin got a penalty for "Participating Beyond the Center Red Line". Is that exactly what it sounds like? Can someone enlighten me, please?

moeman said...

Yikes.

kevincrumbs said...

Great, give up a goal with less than thirty seconds left in the period.

kevincrumbs said...

Come on, the crowd can't even muster up the enthusiasm to boo them off the ice? I wonder if the Molsons' plan to make money from owning the Habs involves the team playing so poorly that they have about six Molson Exports while at the Bell Centre.

orangeman said...

Sorry if this was already discussed, but just saw on TSN that the Habs donated $159,000 to Haiti Relief (UNICEF). They promised to match fan contribution which ended up at $59,000, but then threw in another 100k for the hell of it. Whatever these idiots do on the ice, man this is one classy organization. Didn't the NHL as a whole only donate 100k? Makes me happy to be a Habs fan. Now back to the game and hating being a Habs fan.

Ronan said...

This must be a nightmare, somebody pinch me.

No, not you, Hamr. That's enough pinching from you.

Anonymous said...

fuck you gomez. that flicker of life you showed when Chicken arrived ? shades of ak27 - tease us with something tantalising and then go back to your utterly useless ways. fuck you and your fucking albatross of a contract.

orangeman said...

HA-LAK! HA-LAK! HA-LAK!

(Having not watched the actual game I have no idea if this is warranted. Just thought I'd try to participate in some way).

Moey said...

It's groundhog day. This bunch look as bad as last year's when we went into the death spiral in Feb.

moeman said...

Isn't Peart pronounced Pert and not Peert?

GoldenGirl11 said...

Mike Keenan on TSN? Oy. Let me share DrGG's eye roll (because he tells it so often) provoking story... Keenan was his gym teacher in high school. He should not be on tv.

kevincrumbs said...

Squid's got to put that away.

orangeman said...

Super, a kid just stabbed another kid with a pair of scissors in my class. Thank Allah the kid's alright, ended up being more of a shallow cut. Then the attacker has a nervous break down when I ask him to come with me to the office and throws some chairs and tables. And of course the 'administration' just hugs the attacker and sends him back to my room. This day is just getting better and better.

And no, I don't watch the game when I'm in class, just on breaks. God damn it Habs, some of us NEED a win today.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Orange
Maybe tell attacker kid what BGL would do in that situation. He would ask the potential victim "may I stab you?" and when the kid says "no" they could make plans to go out for a big salad.

kevincrumbs said...

@orangeman: Ugh. Glad everyone's okay (I think).

boob gainey said...

It isn't like last year really.

Last year the team imploded.

This year we have only about 2/3 of an NHL team. Our 3rd line is a bad 4th line that doesn't score, our 4th line doesn't really belong in the league.

It's no better on defence (maybe worse).

Tyler Seguin - is he any good?

orangeman said...

Everyone's ok, though my heart, head and good will towards man took a beating.

Ok, anyway, back to what's important. FUCK YOU HABS! I WILL UNLEASH THE FURY ON YOU THAT I JUST HAD TO HOLD BACK FOR THE LAST HOUR. SOME OF US GET PAID PEANUTS TO DEAL WITH REAL PROBLEMS AND PUT MORE EFFORT INTO IT THAN YOU MILLIONAIRE HACKS DO EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE THE DREAM JOB OF EVERY CANADIAN MALE AND MOST CANADIAN FEMALES. YOU GODDAMNED MOTHERFUCKING UNDERACHEIVING PIECES OF WHORE STD SHIT!!!

Okie-dokie, I feel better.

Moey said...

@boob,

Bottom line is we're still watching suckage.

Sooooo...maybe Shellylicious coming back to the Habs could cheer me up and obviously not for his defensive abilities.

I've been alternating the CHL prospects game with the Habs fiasco. Coupla good looking prospects there in Sarnia or Windsor or whatever we could fuck up.

@orange - Carey got bowled over bigtime while playing a puck near the boards when the D was busy checking out the tits on the front row spectators. A vigorous conversation ensued, featuring Carey demonstrating how to throw a punch without getting penalized. Ty Conklin wandered over to provide moral support (not sure to whom). So HE got the penalty.

Best play of the game, I'm afraid.

Back to DCRing...

... or DVRing, or just plain drinking heavily.

How many days to the draft?

orangeman said...

Thanks Le Douze, that actually sounded entertaining...until I remembered this was a Habs game.

kevincrumbs said...

Great third and a deserved goal. Chicken!

GoldenGirl11 said...

Hat trick to balance Gui's hat trick? Seems only fair.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Make that sombrero trick.

kevincrumbs said...

I wonder if Wild fans are angry at Chicken.

kevincrumbs said...

Fuck off, Barret Jackman.

orangeman said...

Ok, now let's get the Chicken combo.

hfotwc said...

we're not down to one scoring line, we're down to one fuckin goal scorer

orangeman said...

Ok, lunchtime now, got CJAD going. PP. Chicken. Please, give me something to cheer today Habbies. I BELIEVE!

sorta.

kevincrumbs said...

Holy fuck, we tied the game!

hfotwc said...

fuuuuuuuuuuuck!

orangeman said...

Oh god yes, I needed that.

Ronan said...

Where the hell did this team come from, and where were they for the first 45 minutes?!

kevincrumbs said...

Please don't give up a goal in the next 32.9 seconds.

Baroque said...

A point?

Going for two? :)

kevincrumbs said...

Ugh. I knew it when McSplooge starting jerking off to Carey that he'd end up jinxing him.

We got Conk-blocked.

Boob Gainey said...

Carey surprised to see the puck coming his way.

Again.

orangeman said...

Canadiens, quit playing games with my heart.

I know TFS is like a god around here, but the guy can't make the big game saves. Obviously I didn't see the OT goal, but the guy just seems to give one up at the most inopportune moments. Yeah, it's a team sport, but sometimes your goalie has to come up big. Habs were dominating and Price just couldn't help them out. I don't remember the last time he did.

Anyway, a point. That'll help against Florida and Atlanta. Sigh.

Boob Freakin' Gainey said...

Add Ty Freakin' Conklin to the list of goalies who've outplayed Price this year.

Tom said...

The return of GMS!!!!! Loved it.
CHicken, wow.
Rest of you piss ants..... SHAME
@orangeman, i'm with you on the heartbreak. On top of TFS' timing, its drifters/floaters whatever, too much time to think? I got nothing... Jaro in 20 10!!!!

Le Douze said...

Nino Niederreiter and Stanislav Galiev looked really good tonight. If we keep playing this way we may have a chance at them. Just think .... we could have Swiss Miss III or another KHL runaway.


Anyway, here's to more tits - on the ice or in the stands, either way works for me.

@Le Douze: What's really embarrassing is that I just realised today that Nino plays for the Portland Winter Hawks. Who play a fifteen minute drive away from my house. Yikes.
