The Phat Whale is Back, Baby



Hey there! Dudes &&& Dudettes!!


The good fellas here at FHF asked me to write a little bit about late night's game. They tell me that this use to be J's gig, but now that I'm a pine-ridin', ball-cap-wearin' backup goaltender, it's my turn to enlighten all of Habs' fandom with my words of wisdom.

Who's J, you ask? Duh, that's the one and only, Mr. Jaroslav Halak. I hear you guys know J cause he's written a bit about his times here in Montreal waaaaayy back when I was the main dude in the blue paint - before the braintrust decided to rest me for the playoffs - a little early in my humble opinion, but whatever, dude. Anyway, J and I get along famously: he's always jokin' around with me, calling me a Phat Whale in his usual straight-faced, you-wouldn't-know-he-was-jokin'-unless-you-shared-a-net sort of way. I also love the way he calls our head coach "Martoon". Makes me think of Bugs Bunny. Now that's a funny rabbit! I call coach "Captain Jacky" - you know, cause he doesn't want a team captain, and his name is really "Jacques"! That's why it's funny! I love irony, dudes.

Anyway, back to J: It amazes me how many dudes think he's serious when he writes that stuff about me! Dudes, J's from behind the I-Ron curtain, he can't spell "Phat" right! He calls me that cause I look so BIG in the net: like the world's largest animal. And it's not like he pissed on my rug and called me an asshole or anythin'. I fucking hate when that happens. And really, there's not much I hate. Karma, you know.

-- Thought just popped into my head: If you could be any animal, whadda ya think it'd be? Not a whale. Dude, I just LOVE horses. That'd be AWESOME. Anyway.

Oh, and before I get into the game action, what's with Bobby G takin' a walk before those games back in my home state even get started? The G's my type of dude: quiet, thoughtful, likes a toke from time to time. And he fucking LOVES bowlin'. You should see him when he's in the lane: I say he's the best all-around and most complete bowler alive today. And he's not even a pro! Dude, that's cool. But did you see that presser with the new main dude, Peter whatever? It was like a funeral for Bobby or somin'.

Anyway, so what's up with the Caps and that winnin' streak? Can't be selfish like that, gotta let the other team win once in a while, as they finally figured out (oops, don't want to ruin the endin'!). Bad karma if you win too often, ya know? Look at me, I'm all about the good karma: I've made sure not to win two in a row since I got called up from Hams - even though I could if I wanted. The braintrust know I'm The Dude. Just wait 'till you see all the zeros on the contract Peter the new dude gives me this summer! (Speakin' o' which : tokes' on me, Bobby G!! Couldn't a done it without 'cha, buddy.)

So let's get to the game. What a start, dudes! Gomer and the NEW Tommy P were fucking FLYING out there on that first shift. But what the fuck was up with o'Byrnsy on that giveaway to that Light dude? Dude was wearing a WHITE jersey, o'Burnsy-dude! But if I know o'Burnsey - and of course, I do - he was high as a KITE by then. He's our very own Rocket Man, ya know what I mean?

But really, the first period of time was all about my good, close personal friend, Mr. Josh Gorges - Gorgeous George to his buddies. You wouldn't know it from all that faith he talks, but dude's got a temper. I bet he pulls a gun on that Mike Green dude in the parkin' lot after the game. It's a league game, Mike!!

And the start of second period of time - wouldn't you know it - same freakin' thing, dudes. The NEW Tommy P pots his FIRST CAREER GOAL just 41 tiks in, and then - BANG - that Ovie dude's line cuts a swath to the crease and - BOOM - all tied up. Did you see that Ovie dude just plow over the Space-head on his way to the net? (We call him "Space-head" cause when he's high, dude comes out with some WILD fucking stories, dudes. You wouldn't believe what you can pay hookers to do back in Space-head's hometown back behind that I-Ron curtain I just learned about.)

So you want to know the real reason the Caps pulled that kid, Newbirth or whatever? Dude couldn't hold my JOCKSTRAP, yo. Just kiddin', I wouldn't ask anyone to do that, except Captain Jacky! Just kiddin again, of course - Captain Jacky loves me, that's why he's playing J so much more. He knew I needed some more pot time. Uhh, I mean...pot time. Anyway, I heard the Newbirth kid was so worried about facing me he crapped his pants. So they brought that Josie dude in, 'cause he has some sort of history around here. I don't remember anyone talking about him before, though. I thought some Patrick dude played here before me and Huey the Real Frenchman. I keep hearing about that Pat guy for some reason.

Anyway, after Josie made a few ok saves, Subway scored (get it? Because that's English for "Metro"? I fucking kill me sometimes. Trust me, we'll be seeing that nickname on Puck Daddy's 'jersey fouls' pretty soon.) Nice goal, even if Subway dude needed to kick it in. Then - BANG - another BUT as they say in Quebecer. I have no idea why the crowd was cheering Josie's name after that one, though. Dudes (some one's gotta tell me what is french-speak for "Dude", by the way) WE scored, not them!!

Then that Ovie dude just plowed over ME to almost score a goal. That's why me and Space-head are so cool, I know how he feels. 500 pounds of Ovie dude and Gillie Weed (dude smokes like a CHIMNEY!) is like a horse coming at you. (I just LOVE horses. Did I mention that yet? It's important.) But that Ovie dude is cool - he's got the quality hook ups for me and Bobby G, if you know what I mean.

-- So I was just wonderin': any of you dudes have any idea why Captain Jacky would be handin' over a big-ass briefcase to some group of dudes in stripy shirts before the game? Probably nothin'. I keep my undies in a briefcase sometimes. Never know who's after your undies.

So anyway, before the end of the second period of time, Tommy P (Classic) scored another one. So when the third period of time started, I was thinkin' "Carey, what would Jesus do?", so right away I let that Mike Green dude score from 45 feet with no one standing anywhere near my paint. I though I'd buy some karma with that since I knew that Mike Green dude must be feelin' worried about what Gorgeous George was gonna do to him in the parkin' lot.

But I was just starting on the karma train, dudes! I've gotta have a whole BUNCH of karma saved up after that (almost) last period of time! You know, cause I let Light shine though to the back of net, twice! (Ha, see, I'm freakin' hilarious when I want to be! It's funny cause he's not really made of photons: he's a man!).

Let's be serious here for a moment: it's not like I couldn't stop all those pucks if I decided I wanted to. Just ask any RDS dudes - they know the truth - it's never my fault. It's just that karma thing, plus this time I was hoping the fans would throw some hats on the ice for that Light dude so I could pick out the ones I like for the next half-dozen games when I'm done playin' and I'm back to watchin'. And I wasn't upset about that last one - as some SUPER excitable dude on TV said - I was just giving the puck to stripy shirt dude. I figured if Captain Jacky liked 'em enough to give 'em a whole briefcase, I should give them something, too. Karma, you know?

Anyway, so then we got into an extra period of time and in the end it's all about my stellar goaltendin' - oh, and the winner by Tommy Classic from Tiny Tits. Tiny Tits was pretty good, what with the triple helpers - but not as good as good ol' Carey, of course. (Ok, ok I know I have to explain that last nickname to you: you see, if you look at the middle letters in "Kostitsyn", what do you see? The word "Tits"! And Sergei's not a big guy, plus he's a little brother, so, like, "Tiny Tits" is a natural! Fuck I'm a funny guy.)

Anyway, that's it. That's the story. Of course, like any good movie, the good guys win in the end. And I'm a good guy.

You're welcome, dudes.



I just love me. And horses, of course!


FHF would like to warn its younger viewers that this is what happens when you smoke too much pot. Probably worth it, though, if your life isn't turning out quite like you expected. Losing touch with reality has it's upside. Let's hear your pot-induced hallucinations in the comments.

Bravo.

Although you guys just sparked (Get it? Sparked? Like if I smoked some sticky icky?) more goalie controversy. While HIO argues about who's better and who should start, FHF will argue about who's posts are better.

kevincrumbs said...

Also, I start giggling like I had too many pot brownies whenever I look at that picture of Cari the Fat Wale.

Number31 said...

With how long Price's hair is right now...he actually does look like that. No need for photoshop.

habsss said...

At first glance I thought that was a real picture of Price

Gino Tomac said...

Jokes aside...
What the fuck are we gonna do with Price?

soperman said...

Last night Price reminded me of a goalie joke I heard back in the 80's (??) about a goalie who played three games for the Broons. (His first, last and only game - fortunately for the Broons that only took 60 minutes.)

The Habs beat the Bruins something like 12 - 0 and a sportscaster the next day (on air) reported that this goalie tried to commit suicide, but when he jumped in front of the train, it went between his legs. (waa waaaa)

I normally like Price but the Caps could have scored with a beach ball last night. On the very positive side the team played very well in front of him.

Kmaxx said...

Fuckin' Carey Price...wtf are we going to do? I say this becaue I'm sure he's going to be praised to the hills for beating the Caps singlehandedly - when in reality, he almost lost the fuckin' game for us. If we can't hold onto a 3 goal lead at this point in the season, what's the fuckin' point! That third Caps Goal should have been stopped! I want to see Jaro back next game. He's going to get us to the playoffs...if he gets a chance!

HabsFan29 said...

i wake ('n bake) up to write TMS and i get this brilliance dude. we almost totally fucked up that game last night man

+10 White Russians Panger (and GG too. that work is amazing, especially, looking at the original)

moeman said...

That was fucking brilliant man.

Pepe Le Pew said...

Did we really won 6-5 or was I just hallucinating?

Dude, I'm out of shit...

Number31 said...

Dude. It's the Washington Capitals. You could remove the goalies and build a solid brick wall in front of the net and they'll still find a way to score 5 or more goals.



When was the last time Markov scored....?

L Dude said...

@31: Dude, Markov is snake-bitten! How many glorious opportunities has he had all alone in front of the net the past few games? He'll get there.

@kmaxx: Actually I slowed down the slo-mo replay of that 3rd goal. He was totally screened. Maybe he should have fought a little more to see the puck? But I'm more concerned with the 2 on 1 goal. He NEVER stops those and they ALWAYS shoot five hole.

bea.habs,fan said...

after hearng from halaker colleagues that Price is a cokehead,
I'm happy to read that he is just a Dude with a healthy respect for karma.

WV: wonder where the paht whale gets his gamjhre; I want to share the love

RiRi said...

You know what annoys me? The pro-Price side always says that the team plays like shit in front of him and that if only they would give him a 2-3 goal lead, he would be able to hold on for the win. Well, guess what? He couldn`t even do that... Sigh.

Also, agree on Markov. He needs to start scoring.

On a side note, anyone see Tortorella chew out Del Zotto and literally send him to the end of the bench after he took a penalty that led to the GWG? Funny stuff.

Anonymous said...

(Hadulf - still too lazy to get my google account fixed)

Nice post Panger.

Fuck you Carey the Phat Whale. YOU almost cost us the game when the team played well. YOU should sit, NOW and let Jaro take us home. YOU always do this and then people make excuses that the team played poorly in front of you. Now the team actually performs and scores 5 fucking goals and give you a 3 fucking goals lead then you let in AT LEAST 2 softies.

FUCK. YOU.

WV: dared. Too easy.

@anon (hadulf) - you can type your name in if you click on the Name/URL radio button, if you're not too lazy. That way we won't confuse you with @anon(gay-baiting troll).

Still can't believe last night ... even with a third period collapse and an OT sleepwalk, a W over the Caps, by outscoring them!? Must be the ganja.

RiRi said...

Did I hear that right? Watching the highlights, and Ovechkin just said we are a team who plays "pretty good defensively"... Ha! Oh stop it, Ovie. Flattery will get you everywhere!

Also, according to TSN, we have two AVERAGE goaltenders. Fuck off already.

Hadulf said...

@12

Thanks for the tip. And that's why I specify my name so I don't get mixed up with The Troll.

Testing my account now...

matt - ftc said...

This was a great article...classic FHF.

L Dude said...

I guess that's why I can't quit on Carey Price - he's a fellow dude. I think my dream catcher saved his ass last night. That, and I think the village elders were holding a sweat lodge and smoking the peace pipe last night to help out(the hippies next door had a party and there was something funky wafting from their chimney).

Boob Gainey said...

I fear that with Gainey gone the media hyenas and the "gutless bastard" contingent will drive Carey out of town.

If they could do it to St.Patrick ...

GoldenGirl11 said...

We won?

GoldenGirl11 said...

Coolest man on the ice yesterday? David Mulder. Just sayin'.

L Dude said...

Do you guys think Plekanec is Captain material? I think of him as a Gainey/Carbo type player with more offense and less defense (don't see him often dropping in front of pucks like Guy did with regularity). Those were 2 great captains, and I think he falls into a similar mold. Just a thought.

Here's another thought. Would you say he's a lock to be at least a finalist in the Selke Trophy voting? This guy is 16th in scoring, now with 60 points in 61 games! 10th in PP pts, 2nd in PP assists, averages 3 minutes/game shorthanded, 2:30ish on the PP, plays 20 minutes, so over a quarter of his time is on special teams. And he DOES lead all forwards on the Habs with 47 blocked shots.

L Dude said...

edit: Meant to add in to my last post that leaves him 13th overall for blocked shots by forwards.

too close to toronto said...

i agree with 31. Boone pointed out yesterday before last night's game that during Washington's streak, opposing goaltenders had a .851 save percentage. So Carey actually outperformed most of his colleagues against the Caps last night.

Were any of his goals against a bit weak last night? Probably. (not the 3rd one though... he was totally screened, btw). But these are the Caps. They score at will. I was more pissed off with the players in front of him... in the last minute, with that final penalty expired, our guys just gave up the blue line too easily. What happened to the aggressive defending and forechecking we saw earlier in the game? Balls. They were just asking for the Caps to tie the game. Not (all) Carey's fault.

I for one hope Fat Wale Cari Price gets the next start. He needs more ice time to get in game shape, and I think he can probably build on last night's win. I figure we're better off with two goalies who can win games.

MrBigTime said...

Woah woah woah!!!

WTF is with the Price bashing that he almost cost us the game? How many leg saves did he make on Ovie last night, and shut the door on him all night. The Caps just keep coming at you, and when you take stupid penalties, you're gonna allow goals. He sits for 2 weeks, comes out and beats a red-hot Caps team, and the Jaroholics come out swinging!!

Man I hate fair-weather-know-nothing-about-goaltending "fans" who really think Halak is a #1 so bad that are willing to hand him the title after have 1/2 of a good season.

Price plays all of the good teams, Halak get the mediocre ones (fact, look it up, cause I'm way to lazy to point you to eyes on the prize)

Dude!

too close to toronto said...

@L dude: Pleks absolutely *should* get consideration for the Selke, but I doubt he will. For some reason he seems to get constantly overlooked.

lawyergirl77 said...

I'm still laughing... "Horses. I love horses."

This post becomes perfection if some of you think back, waaaay back to one of the "Getting to know your Canadiens" segments they played at the Bell Centre about 2 years ago (maybe more) where they asked the players what their favourite animal was, or, if they could come back reincarnated as an animal what would they be (the actual question is a little hazy for me).

Players give answers like tigers, and eagles etc. and then you get to Price. Blank stare. And then in a stoner monotone replies: "Horses. I like horses."

Panger and I pissed ourselves.

And thus a legend was born... or blazed... take your pick!

lawyergirl77 said...

Oh and GG11 - the photoshop looks so good, it's freaky...

Boob Gainey said...

"For some reason he seems to get constantly overlooked."

But isn't that the raison d'etre of the Selke trophy?

dwgs said...

Last night's stupid scoreboard question for the players was "Which would you rather be, a ninja or a wizard?"

@dwgs: Duh, that's an easy one, I'd want to be a Ninja Wizard of course.

bea.habs.fan said...

@dwgs I'm guessing the PR dept. has something to do with the assanine questions.

players should be asked useful questions like what kind of oven mitts they use or who they would like to be photoshopped as?

You're hired.

Bill 101 said...

long time lurker, first time poster

Respecting protocol, I hate the Bruins like I hate my ex-lover. I hate the Leafs like I hate my sister's girlfriends.

Bad timing, but I think the Caps are great and never more so than when they lose to CH.

I REALLY hate the Flyers and/or any team Pronger plays on. Could be a stimulating weekend

WTF? We have two good goalies. and the problem is... ???

wv "suppeu" - back to back Flyers - I suppeu someone's gonna get an owie.

kevincrumbs said...

Sure, Bob Clarke (when the fuck did he become "Bob" and not "Bobby"?) was a total tool on TSN but I did like his implication that perhaps people should STFU about who's number one and just fucking go with it.

Cari the Fat Wale didn't play spectacularly nor did he suck. For the love of God, we beat the Caps! If you asked anybody here before the game if they would take a 6-5 OT win, everyone would've agreed.

I think the turning point was Markov getting robbed by Theo on the PP when we were up 5-2. Caps come right back and score as the PP is running out, moving it to a 5-3 and causing everybody's sphincter to tighten. Also, in regards to criticism of the D, remember that your guy who has logged the most minutes, almost died earlier in the game, leaving geezers such as Jaro 2.0, Hamr and Gill to try to pick up the slack against the Caps. Yeah.

too close to toronto said...

@kevincrumbs - stop making sense and speaking rationally. bobby clarke is evil and everything he says is wrong. remember that.

HabsFan29 said...

@anonymous dickhead - I will now be deleting every comment you make. Nobody else react to him if you see anything from him.

So just fuck off.

Robbie said...

Dear Lawyers,

It appears the Mrs. whale friend got a horse and rode in on it last night. It seems they fell off on 5 occassions but nothing serious. I must admit i am worried though. Since the Mrs. Old man (Dr. Bob) got bamboozaled i think the new management might seriously be considering trading away her really cool foreign friend. I'm not sure i understand that logic.

Man i hate these; ''who is the best friend'' drama's. They really fuck up things even more then they already are. If thats possible.

My hope is that the Mrs. comes to her senses and sends that pot smoking, 16 year old loving, horse freak off into the sunset so the Mrs. can concentrate on that famous end of season playoff thing.

P.S. Great post 33

RiRi said...

I understand that they played 2 periods with only 5 D (4 out of 5 over age 30) and did the best they could but I don`t like how Ovechkin just steamrolled over Spacek and Gill.

Also, Markov missed practice. It`s like they can`t win a game without losing at least 1 player to injury...

Boob Gainey said...

But what Bobby Clarke said was actually that Halak and Price should STFU and stop demanding to be number one - which neither one has done.

Habsfan10 said...

Bob Clarke wouldn't know a good goalie if it bit him in his stupid cheapshotting ass. You'd think a guy who had Bernie Parent win him two Cups would have spent some time and resources getting even one above-average keeper for some of those loaded Flyers teams he mismanaged the hell out of. Anything he says on the subject of goaltending is probably best ignored.

L Dude said...

Is every other person that ever had anything to do with hockey in Vancouver, because that's the only logical reason I can see to have 'Bob' Clarke on 'the panel'. Dude, the camera's over here. Stupid fuck. Probably the first Habs game he's seen and going on about our goalie's like that. Fuck you. Somebody should do to your head what you did to Kharlamov.

RiRi said...

Geez. Someone started a rumour that Frolov is coming to MTL tommorow and it`s trending on Twitter in Canada. WTF?

kevincrumbs said...

@RiRi: Oh great, Gauthier probably just traded Halak and Price for Frolov.

L Dude said...

Anybody stick around to watch any of the Oiler/Ducks game. I tuned in at the intermission, because I wanted to see the hi-lites again, and the panel was on. Dave Hodge says "I was yelling 'TAKE HIM DOWN'", referring to Kostitsyn before the winner, because a penalty wouldn't likely matter at that point, and they could get to the shootout. So disappointed that the Habs ended the Caps' streak. Boo fucking hoo.

Then, because I'm an addict, I tune into Sportsnet's Hockeycentral to hear nearly the very same words uttered from Doug McLame's mouth. FUCK YOU SPUD!

The more people (Leaf lovers and broadcasters it seems) that seem to be pissed off about the Habs beating the Caps, the better I feel about that game.

WOOHOO. WE FUCKING ROCK. All you fuckers in Tronna can fuck right off. Oh and also, fuck off.

Habsfan10 said...

@ kevincrumbs:

The era of Cedric and the Sandman begins!!

RiRi said...

@10 - But who will be the #1?

Boob Gainey said...

You'd think the Toronto media would have noticed that the Leafs are the 2nd worst team in the league right now.

But if Brian Burke shits on a stove they call it pancakes.

sorry anonymous dickhead troll, i sit in front of a computer 14 hours a day and can delete way faster than you can type. eventually, i'll block your IP address too, so go ahead and keep it up

moeman said...

Dags + Webber for Frolov apparently done.

CanuckleHead said...

I think the anon dickhead problem has been solved. It seems someone at my work has been busy with my computer recently and happened to leave the screen unlocked. Needless to say a little talk with HR has remedied the situation i believe.

To all the annoyed FHF fans I sincerely apologize for ruffling any feathers If i knew these messages were coming from my work computer I would of ended it immediately. Truly sorry.

Habsfan10 said...

@ moeman:

Where are you seeing that?

@ everyone else:

When did H I/O start putting asterisks in Kostitsyn to block out the "tits"? That's fucking ridiculous. What is that place, a primary school?

Boob Gainey said...

Horrible trade if it's true. Frolov is a UFA.

Unless they are 100% certain that Dags and Weber have no future in the NHL this blows.

dwgs said...

Apparently HI/O has installed some software that bowdlerizes posts.
Quick, how many words can you think of that have dirty combinations of letters in them?

Boob Gainey said...

It's hilarious.

I recommend everyone try it.

kevincrumbs said...

Meh, I would be okay with it IF they can sign Frolov. Don't people here rip on Dagger all the time? Haven't I heard a ton of times about how Swiss Miss II won't ever cut it in the NHL?

The fact that Dagger's in the NHL is already an achievement. Dude was a sixth round pick, for the love of God.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@10
How do you think **** ***kus feels?

bea.habs.fan said...

I've wondering about HF29's comments to the non-existent Anon.
I thought he had lost his marbles or had gone blind (too much alone time with oven mitts)

it eventually dawned on me that sadly HF29 is married to his computer. (except when he goes to restaurants and the Habs win - we should start a fund to send HF29 out for dinner for all Habs games; he is just a poor student after all)

CanuckleHead said...

Where did anyone see the Frolov trade? I can't find it anywhere.

HabsFan29 said...

@canucklehead - i just deleted another anonymous dickhead troll comment, so thx, but it ain't your co-worker

10, ckac is reporting that Gauthier will announce it soon (why is why I typed "apparently done.".

Ben Dugas said...

If it's true I like that Frolov deal. Dags has proven this year that he's pretty useless and Weber might be good but at best he'll be a 4th or 5th Dman who can play on the PP. Who cares if we resign Frolov. If all our wingers are healthy for the playoffs (assuming we make it) we'd have more forward depth than anyone in the East.

More importantly however did anyone see on HIO that Georges was PRACTICING TODAY?!?

I have no words. I'm surprised they even removed the puck from his skull so quickly.

Pepe Le Pew said...

Best news of the day, Gumby Gorges was back at practice today.

Pepe Le Pew said...

Confirm PK Subban called back.
No word on Frolov.

Moey said...

@Ben,

The back of his helmet was dented where the puck hit. He said he was in shock at the beginning and didn't know where he was hit. Thank God he's okay, it doesn't bear thinking about.

GG11,

Great photoshopping!

moeman said...

Yup, PK is headin' to Philly.

I read he likes the #76 because its a reversed 67, a dig at the loser leaf.

Josh's dented helmet.

Ben Dugas said...

@Moey
Indeed. I've never seen a player leave the ice with blood gushing out the back of his helmet. I'm hoping I don't have to see that again anytime soon.

@GG11
I second the excellence of the photoshop. It's easy to see why you draw so much water on this blog.

moeman said...

The Florida Panthers have traded forward Dominic Moore to the Montreal Canadiens for a second-round pick in the 2011 draft.

Pepe Le Pew said...

An ex Leaf ...
Oh well, I hope is Demi's brother and she attends all Habs game from now on.

Moey said...

@moeman,

Just heard he's 56% on faceoffs. That 'splains it.

RiRi said...

PK Subban!!!
Doesn`t that name just scream "hockey"! Finally, his cheerful, perky attitude is on its way to MTL! What`s his nickname?!?

Also, I love how everybody`s yapping about Frolov (not necessarily on this blog) and we end up with Dominic Moore...
Does this mean we`re getting rid of Laps or Subway?

dwgs said...

I don't want Subway to go anywhere.

Habsfan10 said...

Jesus fucking Christ, a second rounder for Dominic Moore? Gauthier's a fucking tool. I'd rather suffer with the kids growing pains than give up a second rounder for a whiny fourth liner.

Ronan said...

@ RiRi
The Subbanator, I think? There's a tag for that, anyway. Does this mean we finally get to see a Markov-Subban powerplay? Fuck yeah!

Is anyone else unimpressed by Gauthier's first big move as GM? Cristobal Huet got a second-rounder. Is Dominic Moore really on the same level Huet was?

Re: Frolov rumours
6'2", 208lbs, 30-goal scorer, shoots right, would take D'Agostini off our hands? Sign on the dotted line, please!

moeman said...

Goat (CHèvre) better not be showcasing PK, otherwise he becomes the new Goatse. Do not Google at work, home, OK maybe play kidz.

moeman said...

FWIW, K. Mio yips the Frolov rumour.

Ronan said...

@ moeman
I was waiting for someone to dub him that. And I agree - PK is the ONE untouchable on this team (okay maybe Markov too).

Jaybird said...

OMG I have always hated Domenic Moore? this is the year of Jay hated players joining the Habs with Pedro and Gionta. I like Gionta now...but still.

WV: grief ... unbelievable

It's not this year's draft though.

The trade doesn't bother me, really. Who would you rather have on your fourth line: Dominic Moore, or MA Fucking Bergeron?

Am I the only one who thinks of roadkill on the 417 when that Ottawa goal horn goes off?

RiRi said...

WTF?

Fisher (I think it was him) dropped his stick and as he went to pick it up, Ovechkin kept sliding it away and got a penalty for interference.

Didn`t some fucker in Boston do this to Pleks while on the PK?

BTW Kovy just scored on that PP...

RiRi said...

Forgot to add that no call was made in our favour when that happened.

Please people, no knee jerk reactions to the Moore trade, let's see how it pans out. I'm already creeped out with the troll, it's too HIOish. I want my mommy.

No HF29 ce soir? Date #2 with the cbc cutie Kristin?

Number31 said...

Ah...to win a game with a .792 save percentage. Brian Elliott is a lucky bastard.

Number31 said...

And by lucky I mean I wished the Habs had some of that shut down defensive mentality :(

Unfortunately Gauthier probably feels his future with the team depends on them making the playoffs. Trading away future picks for players who can help now may not make any sense for the Habs (we're not going far in the playoffs this year), but it makes sense for Gauthier.

Moore is a UFA at the end of this year - so this is essentially a rental.

RiRi said...

I wonder is Moore can play on the PP like Subway

@RiRi: It was the game in Boston last Friday night and the Bruin did get a penalty for that move.

@Moey: I think the problem that we all have with this Dominic Moore trade is the fact that we gave up a 2nd rounder. I don't have an issue with Moore and don't mind having him but for a 2nd rounder? What the fuck?

Did I hear that Markov is injured?

There was a bad hit on him near the end of the Caps game and he left the ice with difficulty.
