The Game Day Skate for Tuesday May 18th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of a Miss USA who knows how to work the pole...
OK everyone, it's a whole new (hopefully troll-free) day around here. In case you went away yesterday be sure to scroll down for an excellent HF4 movie review. Let's all take a deep breath, remove our Pants, not feed the trolls, and pray the coaching staff came up with some sort of strategy yesterday. GYFHG.

Sans culottes!

Breathing shallowly already this morning.

Just wanted to drop in and say giant props to GG11 for the badass 'shop of Pleks on display in 4's movie review. Pleks is my boy, and I have to say, I like him looking mean. I hope he looks at several Flyers like that, while feeding them an elbow tonight.

Boob Gainey said...

That Bruins eulogy is excellent.

Steve said...

Let the Uroligist play the PP, otherwise he smells like witch pee on defense.

And Little Tits, let him out of the doghouse just to see if he can bark.

Tyg said...

I want my Big Sexy back!

Habsfan10 said...

The comments section over at Puck Daddy is ... um ... kinda ... interesting.

Let's fucking shut those baying, beer pouring, car and tv truck vandalising, orange-clad Cro-Mag fuckers the hell up early tonight and come home to our own beer pouring, car flipping, car burning, looting, anthem booing, ref-baiting bleu-blanc-et-rouge wearing fuckers tied 1-1.

GO YOU FUCKING PK WILL BOUNCE BACK CAUSE WE HAVE NO CHOICE HABS GO!

kristin said...

I'm expecting the usual bounceback game from Jaro!Jaro!Jaro!

HabsFan29 said...

kristin! finally a sane Flyers fan comes to visit. i too am expecting Jaro to bounce back. doesn't mean we won't lose 1-0 tho

RiRi said...

If Pat Hickey needs to keep his car out of Philly, then Jack Todd needs to keep his head out of his ass. The hate that man spews gets me so riled up. Ugh.

Also, I know this sounds negative but I said this before the Caps and Pens series and it "worked" and I'm majorly superstitious so here goes...

I'll be happy if the win one.

On a more postive note,

GYFHG!!!
Pants have been removed!

RiRi said...

*they

Stupid tyops!

Mr. natural said...

OK game day skate....

Not to light a fire in here with my next incindiary comment but, I've been getting the Montreal Gazoo delivered to my home for more years that I wish to mention on this site (Yes I'm shielding you LG77) and Jack Todd has to be the biggest asshole they've ever had writing a column and they've had a few over the years.

He is contrarian just for the sake of going against the popular view and and his analysis of any sports related event/issue tec. is always very poor.

Wish he would go back to the US, oh ya they don't want him either.

GYFH GO!

Chester said...

Jack is The View From Nebraska, like anyone gives a fuck. I don't think they care down there, why should we care up here. It's just that he takes a spot that could be filled by some young english home grown Hab fan. You know writing for your local paper. At least Farber moved to SI.

Jaybird said...

Woo I missed a lot in two days.

I'm not troll feeding if the chance comes up. Unless its too easy. Only one game friends. Tonight is a different story though..why did Gagne have top come alive again right now. Tells me he's just out for a paycheque in the regualr season as is Briere.

Hexing Carter right now and was looking forward to Vodkov but I guess he's done all of a sudden. Poop.

WHY IS O'BYRNE EVER ON THE BENCH?

Go Habs go! Woooopants.

lawyergirl77 said...

No, seriously - the comments section over at Puck Daddy is hysterically lame.

Kristin and a few other people excepted, Flyers fans are really brutal specimens of humanity, no?

+ A zillion for RiRi re: "If Pat Hickey needs to keep his car out of Philly, then Jack Todd needs to keep his head out of his ass."

lawyergirl77 said...

So help me if Rhino isn't playing tonight but MAB gets to take a regular shift on D...

DJ Cole Slaw said...

Haha, 2-0 tonight. The series that is.

soperman said...

@DJ Troll Slaw.

The Habs can't go up 2-0, the phucking phylers won on Sunday, so 1-1.

Mr Trivia said...

I'm vouching for the Habs tonight. A win, guaranteed.

I'll fucking wear pants all summer if I'm wrong.

wv: Plekanec scores the winner in sundesst overtime.

DJ Cole Slaw said...

Going to be a hot summer Trivia :-/

Mr. natural said...

PHor sure Habs win tonight.

I work for a very conservative company, can you believe it, they make me put my pants back on when I leave my office and walk among the minions, PHUCK!

I feel very calm about tonight, we will recover and show the doubters that 6-0 is not representative of who we are.

GYFHG

Tyg said...

DO NOT FEED THE TROLL!

I don't want to have to wear pants again today!

Mr. natural said...

PHucktar trolls, well we could always parle en francais, je doute qu'il y a même une seule personne a Philadelphia qui a une capacité intellectuelle pour parler plus qu'une langue.

Va the PHaire PHoutre espece de cons!

L Dude said...

None of us want you to put pants on Tyg. My WV is for you: graticat

Waiting for the preview before continuing on with my superstitions.

Rhino best be back in tonight. I'd like to see itty bitty titty too. I know...

lawyergirl77 said...

@Mr. Natural - crisse, y peuvent même pas parler anglais, leur demander d'apprendre une deuxième langue serait irréaliste.

Ce serait même impossible leur demander d'aller prendre une douche... mais bon.

Topic: Good Kee-rist on a cracker I hope we win tonight!

(I'll be at a partner's house for a shindig he's throwing, ostensibly for the game. They invited me as the novelty act: girl who talks hockey. Great.)

Tyg said...

Merde. Merci pour le WV, LDude.

OB's not in tonight, as per HIO and Twitter sources.

Maudit colis.

@LG77 - you're at least charging them a consultant's fee or something?

Mr Trivia said...

@ldude

agree that rhino and a-cup should be in.

and yeah, Tyg, it seems O'Byrne is not playing. i don't know what's up with that. too much traffic in front of our net? no, no, doesn't make sense to play our biggest fucking defenseman!

and if rhino can't crack JM's lineup then there's no chance in siv=berian hell that lil tits gets pokies on the ice.

WV: sometimes JM's roster decisions are chrool.

RiRi said...

Francois Gagnon says Lil Tits might play!

*looks outside to see if hell has froze over*

foo said...

Je comprend le plupart. I expect that the Habs will actually show up tonight and we might see a pretty good hockey game. wv-poliasta as in Hartnell will take a stupid penalty attempting to poliasta Gomez to the boards and Habs will finally score. Go Flyers!

Mr Trivia said...

francois gagnon tweets:

Sergei Kostitsyn vient de se faire retourner au vestiaire. il est donc possible qu'il joue finalement. À la place de qui?

i'll believe when i see him take a shift.

lawyergirl77 said...

Am I the only one who wouldn't welcome Little Tits back into the lineup?

Seems as though the guys in the locker room don't like him. They've had success because they've been playing as a cohesive unit and are willing to sacrifice body parts for each other/the cause.

I'm worried that Little Tits' selfish, Grabovski-squared act will kill that.

Plus, I wouldn't put it past him to launch the puck into his own net as a final fuck you to the organization that treated him so shabbily...

... but hey, WTF do I know?

Mr Trivia said...

@RiRi - hat tip to you

dwgs said...

I'm with LG, no Little Tits please. A big part of what got these guys where they are seems to be chemistry, don't fuck with that.
Also, a student just brought me a nice thank you bottle of Glenlivet, I predict an excellent evening, the stars are aligning.
GYFH!

Tyg said...

@LG - I too worry that he might upset the apple cart. I'm thinking they'll bench Pouliot? Pouliot can be effective though, even if he's not scoring - see Pens game 2 when he was smacking the birdies around and driving the puck in for Gomer to set up Gio's love tap in on Fleury. Would rather sit Darche Vader.

It's too early for this shit. I'm getting a headache. Too early to start drinking or what?

Sorry if this is my fault cause I wore pants yesterday. :(((

Mr Trivia said...

@lg

i understand your though process about a-cup but i hate to see talent squandered. i think a lot of his attitude has developed because of

1)bad communication betwen him and organization
2)the fact that JM hates his fucking guts

SK has been frustrated about not playing and playing little when he did get a "chance"

sk has been a little bitch, but i don't think he's been treated great...

the boys got skills.
and attitude.

good things to bring against the flyers.

gillis said...

I went looking at the eulogy comments, my favourite was this: "Whatever dumb @$$ wrote this article spelled defense and favored wrong."

Wow.

Spike said...

You let me down Montreal. Instead of intelligent arguments as to why your team - after a humiliating 6-0 drubbing in game 1 – has a chance in this series (you’ll notice that I included the ‘s’ at the end of the word ‘series’ because we’re in NORTH AMERICA and we aren’t playing SOCCER) you revert to attacking our fan base. And your childish antics don’t even feature anything fresh. Maybe it’s the language barrier, but not only were your insults not funny, I wasn’t even remotely offended. I thought Montreal fans were better than that.
You called us poor and said we don’t make enough money working on the docks. OUCH. I might be offended by that, if it was 1870. I think you may have us confused with Boston.
You made a joke about AIDS because a movie was based in our city, not because we had 29,791 reported cases in 2007 (a large enough number to make fun of, but not in the top 10 in our country).
There were numerous Filth-a-delphia comments but not one KILL-a-delphia remark. Cut me were it hurts. How dare you call out Philly for having a litter problem. Maybe you Canadians are too soft to make fun of the massive murder rate in Philadelphia.
One poster said he went to Philly and saw a hobo eating a ketchup packet and yelling at people. We’d better nuke the city, this type of homeless behavior is unacceptable. At least we don’t have homeless hippies crawling all over the place. I was in Montreal and a homeless hippie offered to let me kick him in the face for $20. Not a day goes by that I don’t regret turning him down.
And finally, it doesn’t hurt more when you replace the ‘F’ in FUCK with a PH. I get it … we’re from PHiladelphia. That’s like calling you a HABS-hole instead of asshole. It doesn’t work.
So if you don’t have any logical, hockey-related arguments at least come at us with something fresh and insulting.

lawyergirl77 said...

@Mr. Trivia - his attitude sucks. Sucky attitude = won't use those skills for us. He'll be lackadasical with the puck and his teammates won't bail him out.

He may have talent in spades. A shit work ethic has no place on a team like the Habs... and talent fades when it's not being developed properly.

And I think his attitude will be totally counterproductive and may hurt us if he dresses.

I think we've fucked up quite a few of our young prospects (see also, Grabovski, Mikhail and Price, Carey). He'll never get a fair chance here now - let him move on elsewhere.

lawyergirl77 said...

@Spike - Apologies that the culturally insensitive jibes found on this site weren't up to the Philly standard of "fuck you frenchies" (while wearing a Brière/Gagné jersey, natch).

If we're not entertaining you sufficiently, we invite you to go elsewhere.

Mr Trivia said...

you might be right LG. but i hope i am. it's been tough seeing so many youngs guys leave this team (higgy, komi, perezhogin, grabs, chipper, tenderness, dagger... with maybe sk and price on their way out...)

i'm scared that we've screwed up so much young talent. i think just about anyone drafted can be a star with the right player development.

what scares me is that the guy who was heading up player development is now our GM.

hopefully we find out tonight which one of us is right.

sk = -2, 0 shots, 0 hits and i buy the martinis
sk = 2 assists and a fight with carcillo and you put my face on a t-shirt

Tyg said...

Godin says it's not decided yet who sits - Lil Tits, Darche Vader or CHicken. JM to decide after AM skate.

Mr. natural said...

First leave the Trolls alone.

@LG77 "can't even speak english" LOL. :)

@trivia; "a-cup",first time I hear that one, I likee.

If we bring in L'il tits, you lose Darche and to me MAB for Rhino is a no-brainer.

But agree with LG77 and others, it's about chemistry and a-cup might not fit. Wait until game three, not tonight.

I swear everytime MAB plays the puck in our end I lose it.

I believe he will make me smash my TV at some point.

Glennlivet Yummy!

GYMFHG

moeman said...

Toujours sans culottes.

WV est mousne.

DJ Cole Slaw said...

6 more hours 'til we beat you guys up some more. Good times here in Philly.

swarkles said...

I don't know what to do with myself for the next 5 hours and 49 minutes

kevincrumbs said...

Fuck SK. Seriously, if we're counting on him to inject something into this team then we really are fucked, aren't we? How the fuck is there a chance SK will play when Rhino is gathering splinters in his butt for riding the bench? Can someone remind me exactly what Rhino has done wrong?

As others have pointed out, Puck Daddy commenters are terrible, regardless of what they are talking about. Not YouTube or CBC terrible but terrible nonetheless.

swarkles said...

Puck Daddy is pretty bad in general (except for that Broons eulogy). I've only been on there recently because I pretty much read every single article on the Habs these days.

Also why is OByrne not playing anymore? And I agree that SK probably shouldn't play but at the same what the hell is going on with the organization?? Are they trying to pick bad apples or are they fucking them up somehow?

Bill 101 said...

My efforts are concentrated on NOT seeing this as good/evil, just hockey.

Visitors def undermining those efforts.

Go Habs Go!!

gillis said...

What if Cammalleri were a jedi?

kevincrumbs said...

@swarkles: Sadly, PD is my main source of hockey news. I think it's alright, to be honest, and definitely much better than the Mirtle-less From the Rink. Kukla's Korner is crap and everything else is team-centric.

Bill 101 said...

@kevincrumbs: any other day I would be in full agreement, but today Wysh came clean on Flyers infatuation - flesh-eating disease of the brain comes to mind.

swarkles said...

Wasn't he all for the Caps and Pens as well?

DJ Cole Slaw said...

You too will all become Flyers fans when we're done with you.

kevincrumbs said...

@Bill101: Yeah, I saw that after my last comment. Not sure how one goes from Devils fan to Flyers fan, which is why I like to tell Leaf fans to fuck right off of the bandwagon. I'd rather quit watching hockey than become a fucking Leafs fan.
