The Morning Skate for Wednesday, Februrary 3rd

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of getting an Oscar nom...
  • Wow what an evening! That Lost premiere was FANTASTIC! What's that you say? Habs won? Scored three 5 on 5 goals? Little Tits scored? Habs are in 7th place now? Must be an alternate universe / timeline or something. Oh, you say Halak made a million saves and stole the game? Same old universe;
  • In case you missed it yesterday, Squid says he's out 6 weeks and will not have surgery. He'll be back in time for the playoffs!
  • The new look Leafs shutout the Devils. Dion has a great game and Jiggy gets the SO. Tronna plans its parade;
  • Bruins' death spiral continues;
  • Kings win their 7th in a row;
  • Gui! scores again but the Wild lose.
Now all we need is there to be a Lost premiere every night when there's a game.

Go Habs!

Is it really that difficult to shut out the Devils? I mean say it had been the Capitals then I might be slightly interested but as it stands, Leafs still suck.

L Dude said...

I just gotta say I posted this yesterday afternoon:
I have a feeling Halak will steal the show tonight, giving the Habs a 2-1 victory in OT or a shootout, even though he'll face about 50 shots and the Habs will toss about 18 at Bobby Lou.

So I wasn't exactly on, but I think I was in the ballpark.

@29: Did you pvr LOST? If so, be sure to re-watch it tomorrow night.

Spare a thought for Mike Komisarek.

Last summer he decides he is tired of getting beat up by Milan Lucic and thiks a change of scenery will do him good. He tells his agent he wants to play for Philly, Boston or the Rangers. None of those teams are interested, however.

Then he remembers Brian Burke is GM of the US National team. So he figures, well, maybe Toronto sucks but at least I'll get to go to the <a href="http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=515683>Olympics.</a>

HA HA HA HA.

@RiRi - you know, it's the little things us meth heads can screw up. thx, fixed

GoldenGirl11 said...

How bout Gainey and Price for Kovalchuk.

ezzeloharr said...

@Boob

I love how eloquent Komisarek is in the interview:

"In the back of my mind, that hour glass is definitely ticking..."

That's some really fancy hourglass. And I don't want to imagine what's in the front of his head.

L Dude said...

@ezzeloharr: nearly spit coffee through my nose at the 'ticking hour glass' comment. Priceless.

Maybe from now on we should refer to Komisarek as 'The Sandman'.

I know - we have our own Sandman in Hamilton.

lehab said...

squid.... back in time for playoffs?? yeah... hopefully hyde shows up more often than jekyll

Jaybird said...

Brendan Witt on waivers?!? Go Bob Go! This guys has always been a fave of mine.

RiRi said...

(From H I/O)

Reporter: "Do you miss Mike Komisarek?"

Markov: "Is he here in this room? I have no memory of him."

Ha!

Boob Gainey said...

Poor Komi.

The only award he was in the running for was: "Biggest douchebag on the Leafs who fucked Elisha Cuthbert".

And now he doesn't even have that.

kevincrumbs said...

Yawn. Leafs beat Yann Danis and the Devils, not Martin Brodeur.

Tom said...

Re: Squid back in time for the playoffs...
I hope our team decides to buckle dow so their ARE playoffs for squid to be back to.

Tom said...

@lehab, sorry just re-read your post. I'd have to sub jekyll and hyde for Larry and Moe

wv:state, as in what a fucking state we are in

RiRi said...

Methinks Markov was fed up of fixing the douche`s mistakes and covering up for his pylon-ness.

Jaybird said...

@Boob!

- wow that was insanely awesome!

FireGainey said...

As a Habs fan, ive come to understand that the only thing i hate more than the Toronto Maple Leafs, is Leaf fans.

There should be some form of Darwin imposed on the circus animals that call in to the Fan 590.

For example,

If you call in and suggest that:
- Tie Domi was a better player than Sundin
- Trading Stajan your "Captain" and "Heart and soul of our franchise" away was a bad thing.
- Or, even having the sack to say with a straight face,"Burke should just trade Schenn and Komo for Kovalchuk"

You should be immediately taken outside, shot, and pissed on.

Fuck the Leafs, and Fuck their fans.

Best regards,

Fire Gainey

moeman said...

@FG, that was a good post, one of your best.

Me I like too pour salt in the 43 year festering leaf wound by reminding most (not all cuz there's a few good puppets and eyebeleafers out there) leaf fans that they aren't hockey fans, just leaf fans. Then I duck.

Also, if the wacky 'Anonymous' ever (re)shows up, there's always this .

cottoneye said...

Just watched the LOST premiere. I understood nothing. So of course I LOVED it.

PS.- I still love Komisarek and feel bad he'll likely miss the Olympics. I feel no shame. He's adorable!

gillis said...

Are Boob Gainey and Fire Gainey related?

Boob Gainey said...

Jesus! I just saw our pre-Olympic schedule:

Broons-Pens-Broons-Caps-Flyers-Flyers.

FireGainey said...

I second that. JESUS!

My Predicitions:

Bruins - Loss
Pens - Loss (38 - 0)
*Crosby first player to get 76 points in one game. 38 goals, and an assist on each of his goals
Bruins - Loss
Caps - Loss
Flyers - Lossx2

And for every win that our habs do pull off ill shot gun six beers, crush 6 steamies, and egg my neighbour house... cause hes a colossal douche.

Go habs go?

Fire Gainey

FireGainey said...

@Gillis

Yes we are related. Our real names are Patrick and Stephan Lebeau.

@Fire
Have you considered yoga?

dwgs said...

The Traitor to have season ending shoulder surgery, will miss the Ho lympics as well as the rest of the NHL season. Karma truly is a bitch.

Sleepy said...

Hope this isn't a premonition

Doogie2K said...

Question for 33: Do you have either of the two Centennial jerseys for this year? Because I've yet to see them anywhere in Calgary, to the point where I just ordered them off NHL.com (they arrived tonight -- I'm pumped). It occurs to me that I may be just about the only guy in Calgary that has them.

Those Giants Squids were causing problems for a while now.
Our Squid > Giant Squids

How about a Kraken in Lake Ontario?
