The Morning Skate for Monday, March 29th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of making it to the Final Four...
  • Oh sure, Marty gets chased from his net the day after he plays us. And against the Phlyers no less. Fuck you Marty;
  • Pens need a shootout to beat the mighty Leafs;
  • Flames hanging on to their playoff hopes for dear life, beat the Caps;
  • Chicago picked the wrong time to start playing like crap;
  • Here's the Gazette story on Metro's status and what a great guy he is. It doesn't officially say he's done for the season, but it sounds like he's done for the season.
No game til Wednesday. Spend your time eating matzah.

Done for good as a Hab, let's face it.

heh @ tag.

Metro :(

Oh yea, fuck you Marty. But what the hell are they doing playing the old man in back-to-back games? No wonder he fizzles in the playoffs...

Howard said...

Moses: Let my people make the playoffs! We've been wandering in the desert for 17 years looking for the promised land! We thought that the Phat Whale was our saviour and it may come to pass but that game in Buffalo was too much lord!
God: Ok you must eat bitter herbs to remind you of that defeat and never let it happen again! BTW, beat the 'Canes!
Oh and tell GG11 to keep up the good work!

wv: cowwcm wtf???

RiRi said...

Overworked or not, you would think Brodeur would out-goal (?) Brian Boucher... He better bring his A game against Boston on Tuesday

soperman said...

Does Brodeur play well against anyone but the Habs? I didn't see him play well in the Olympics and he got first shot, even before "greasy bob".

Arrrgh.

Boob Gainey said...

It's often said of the Habs that they make journeymen goalies look like Martin Brodeur.

On Saturday they made Martin Brodeur look like Martin Brodeur.

RiRi said...

I just figured out how to comment from my blackberry!! W00t W00t!!

Carry on.

wv: parize (I shit you not) - Zach Parize, Martin Brodeur and their Ambien-sponsored hockey can go to hell (pun not intented)

Everybody plays well when they are home in front of friends and family. I'll bet Metro & Camalleri are at their best in Tronna; imagine how good Spacek would be in Eastern Europe. Marty Brodeur shines in MTL for the same reason Vincent Lecavelier shines for the same reason Mike Ribeiro shines for the same reason that Stephane Robidas shines or Beauchemin, or Patrice Bergeron, etc. Even Gump Worsley found several more good years when he came home.

Marvelous video on RDS web site of Jim Playfair telling the ref he wasn't ... well.... playing fair. I often feel that way about judges, but you know, the whole contempt jail thing kind of keeps me under control. Way to go Jim, just $200 in broken carbon fiber sticks. Anger management - priceless.

Go you fucking Habs!

Just wanted to drop by, say Hi and type in the word Habs!

Whilst here, 29, how's the cbc hottie and mitt-lovin' Kristin?

Go you fucking Habs!

dwgs said...

The little fuckety-fuck missed a team meeting yesterday and is a healthy scratch tonight.

L Dude said...

Go Sabres. Or whatever. I don't fucking care.

Charissa Thompson on Versus is a hottie - I think. Just caught a quick glimpse.

Yeah. 2-1 Sabres. Woohoo.

In other ex-Habs news that I don't really give a fuck about, but there's nothing else fucking going on, Gui:[ Gone Wild possibly out with an undisclosed injury. Whatever. He's missing the playoffs, along with the little Fuckity Fuck, Saku, HomoSaurus and probably Higgins, not to mention Dags, Chips, TK, etc. Lang and Kovy are in though. No thanks to Kovy. Considering all that, maybe most of the moves weren't so bad.

Ah fuck. Maybe I'll watch the collapse of the other Tronna team for awhile.

Buffalo player interviewed during the 1st intermission: "Just trying to get the puck to the net and hope it goes in."

Not a game for intellectuals is it?

moeman said...

@boob, "Not a game for intellectuals is it?"

1. heh

2. cbc/hnic/CotU media think burke is a genius

3. Tits! <-- (not sure if my big or small brain is responsible for that comment)

boob gainey said...

Speaking of Burke and Tits ... Has anyone else noticed that Brian Burke has man boobs?

Buffalo leading 3-1. TimTom having a bit of a night mare.

moeman said...

TimTom as in da Bs' huge Vezina man?
How low has George Vezina's (look him up kiddz) worth sunk when two
good goalie kidz like TFS™ and Jaro 1.0 can't combine for
as many shutouts as Tim Hasek or is that Dominik Thomas can?

Yeah, yeah, I typed kidz, twice. Oh look there's a cloud I can scream at.

Go you fucking Habs, carve a Canes eye out (of course I did not mean that).

HabScot said...

Bruins lose, and Thrashers on the way to a loss too. About the best you can get for a night you dont play, I do conced (WV)

RiRi said...

Happy 25th B-Day to Not So Mad Max...

gillis said...

meh

Oleg Petrov said...

I'll miss Metro, but they just cannot afford to sign him. Hope he (and Vader) land better than another Torontonian-Mtl-loving-Anglo-media-favourite, Mike Johnson.

Because I want to post this: Perezhogin's teammate being Perezhogined by someone who is not Perezhogin

Number31 said...

C'mooooon Hurricanes. Why couldn't you just keep Cam Ward on the IR...

Howard said...

Anybody watch that biopic of Don Cherry? They sure had a serious hate on for the Habs. I got three words for you grapes: Too many men!

gillis said...

if the habs win half the games left this season, they have a 99.4% chance of making the playoffs
