Your (soon to be) daily Squid update

So the kids over at HI/O are reporting that it's a knee. NOT THE KNEE. His right knee. NOT THE RIGHT KNEE. And that he went for an MRI yesterday. NOT AN... Oh wait, whatevs on that last one. He'll see the doc today and we'll get some details tomorrow.

Let us pray.

Actually, I am sort of hopeful. The squid is a really tough little bugger and he may get out of this with a short recoup.

Bob McKenzie: 6-8 weeks

Ryan said...

We are so epically fucked.

HabsFan29 said...

@shutdown - not sure if I trust TSN on this one. not sure how they have sources that the local media don't. and no one locally has any report of the kind

Habsfan10 said...

Folks, we were already fucked before Squid went down ... so now it's just a question of how fucked ... Taylor Hall fucked? Or just regular Timmins U.S. high school defenceman in the mid-teens fucked? If Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin is the "reward" for the clusterfuck Bob's created, so be it.

HF10 - I wish we were Taylor Hall fucked. This teams needs to wind up in the fucking cellar in order to rebuild.

Sadly, I think that instead of being near the top or the creamy middle of the parity league, we've simply slid down to the bottom of the parity league. Which is, alas, still not the cellar.

Moey said...

HF10,

Agreed, and if anything this gives us a reasonable out and a valid excuse instead of having to live with the fact that we just sucked big time. It's a relief in a strange kind of way.

Now I can get on the Duck's bandwagon full time.

Boob Gainey said...

I think we're Pierre McGuire fantasizing that he is being double-teamed by Mike Komisarek and Dion Phaneuf fucked.

Moey said...

@Boob,

Ha! I was thinking that this morning, McSplooge must have ruined his pants yesterday and he's still sleeping it off.

Habsfan10 said...

I assume that if the Habs win the lottery and get to pick first, Bertrand Raymond and the Louis LeBlanc brigade will want to choose Tyler Seguin because he sounds more French than Taylor Hall.

Patrick said...

Giant squids invade California I'm not even kidding...I guess he's already started his recovery process out in the sun,.

FireGainey said...

Well at least we have a solid core of players to get us through the next 8 weeks without Cammalleri.... oh wait, i forgot we have a terrible team.

FIRE GAINEY.

FireGainey said...

And please...before he butchers the trade deadline/draft.

FIRE GAINEY.

Habsfan10 said...

@ FireGainey:

Subtle. I like it.

FireGainey said...

What gets me is the Molson family is allowing Bob to run their $550 million dollar investment/franchise. Even if I put $5.50 into a lemonade stand I wouldn’t let Bob run it. Because at the end of the day I’d come home to no money, no lemonade, and the embarrassment of having to watch him try and make lemonade with pears and nuts.

FIRE GAINEY

@FireGainey

Price paid for the Canadiens franchise in 2002: $200M

Price paid in 2009: $600M

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Boob

CAREY PRICE PAID FOR THE FRANCHISE?!!!! TWICE??!!!... oh wait, never mind (I swear I had to read that twice before I got it).

moeman said...

Get Well Squid!

GoldenGirl11 said...

Is 46DD dead? Anyone notice there's never any news on him? Did he defect the other way?

Good news from my kids... 8 weeks is really 6 weeks but with the Olympics it's only really 4 weeks and with a strong recovery Squid could be back in like three weeks which is almost like two weeks!! By the end of the night Squid could be back by Thursday!

moeman said...

GG, make some CHicken soup and get Squid back for tomorow's game!

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
Just like his bubby used to make.

Lizardking89 said...

We're so fucked, looks like we'll be getting a top 10 draft pick for Timmins to fuck up.

fezworth said...

Do we even own our 1st round pick?

moeman said...

Just throwin' in some positivity.

HabScot said...

@fezworth.

Looks like we do. According to wiki (yeah, I know ...) the Thrashers have our third round pick (from the Schneider trade) and the Pens have our 6th (which we got their 7th last year for). The Pens also have a conditional on our 7th round pick, details not stated.

The nastiness is of course Boston, who have all of their OWN picks except for the third round plus:

Leafs round 1
Lightning round 2
Leafs round 2 (we briefly had that one at one point)
Hurricanes round 4

gillis said...

It's seriously took me ten minutes to understand Boob's comment from earlier about the price of the franchise.

Howard said...

@FireGainey Thanks for the coffee up the nose! re the lemonade stand!
Fire Gainey and don't make Jock Martin the GM. I'd rather have McSplooge! Don't let the door hit them on the way out!

boob gainey said...

Sorry for the confusion. My point is that when Gainey took over the value of the franchise was pretty low and you could get tickets on game day from the box office.

We shouldn't forget that his 5 year plan worked. He built an exciting competitive team that was the top scoring team in the league 2 years ago. Yeah it blew up last year but now he's started over.

boob gainey said...

Can someone explain to me WTF Sutter is doing to the Flames?

The Phaneuf deal was bizarre enough - a potential Norris winner for Maple Leaf dreck, but today's deal is really weird: Jokinen for Higgins and Kotalik? I don't get it.
