The Morning Skate for Monday, June 7th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of having a career like Brian Chiu...
  • The Pronger haters are quite happy this morning as he sucks balls for 60 minutes (-5, in the box for another), allowing the Hawks to take a 7-4 win and be one win away from the Cup. Michael Leighton is exposed one series too late. Dustin Byfuglien showed up for this one with 2G 2A. Game 6 not until Wednesday;
  • RDS says (and many others agree) the BJ's have officially offered Guy Boucher the head coaching job. Excellent rundown of the situation over at The Columbus Post-Dispatch. Here's Big Fat Bob McKenzie's take, and JT has a great view from the Habs' side of the equation.
Ahh Monday. You suck.

I hiss at you, Monday.

Oh the Stanley Cup Whine is in full force at the one missed high stick gouge on the little elf by Duncan Keith. Considering the missed calls on headshots, hits from behind, goalie interference on a goal, elbowing, high sticking, punching, cross-checking, interference, holding, slashing, hooking, etc the Hawks had to endure vs what the refs have called on the Hawks themselves, I'd say fuck off they can miss ONE you dirty fuckwits.

Hugs to Bryan Chiu!

GYFHAWKS

Mondays do suck.
Especially Mondays after a 12 1/2 hour dance/singing rehearsal before my show this week.

My aches have aches... ugh.

Many thanks to all of you who posted such kind words in TWTOL. I'm blushing here.

And Orangeman - I was a Halak fan all year. Thought Carey was a spoiled brat. So happy for Jaro's success this year, it's hard to express it...

... but now I'm kinda feeling like the girlfriend who can tell the writing is on the wall and, in order to lessen the hurt that the inevitable breakup will cause, I'm trying to convince myself that the other option is better.

Can't blame him at all for leaving. I just wish he wouldn't.

*sigh*

Someone pass me a tub of rocky road ice cream. :(

soperman said...

I can't decide whether I want the Phylers to win because I don't want Hossa to win a cup or if I want the B Hawks to win so the Leafs will have the longest Stanley Cup drought.

What the %#@$ am I thinking? Go Hawks Go!

Mr Trivia said...

MONDAY? AGAIN?

Fuck this.

@LG
i'm sure you'll knock 'em dead this week!

lawyergirl77 said...

Mr. Trivia - fuck, I hate Mondays. not enough coffee/booze in the world to lessen the sting of Monday morning, IMHO.

and tks re: show. Problem is I'm too tired to be nervous, but I'm sure that problem will go away by Thursday night. *gulp*

Watching the Bigfuckingman, stomp all over Pronger and create a vortex of opportunity in front of the net shows the missing ingredient for a Habs cup. We need a Bigfuckingman to fuck every other team and especially players that make us wear diapers like Pronger.

All you Monday haters need to go out and get yourself some kids. Then pack them all up to go to Toronto for the weekend. Throw in the (insert religious ceremony of your choice) of an old high school friend's kid and Monday will never look better.

@Kankwan

Here's your link:

I don't know why the fuck I'm reposting it. It's like looking at th epictures of the guy that your girlfriend is leaving you for... you don't wanna accept it but you can't help stop yourself from looking.

Mr Trivia said...

buzz about kovalchuck being offered $14 million/year x 3 years in KHL?!! there goes my secret hope of him scoring 50 for us.

lawyergirl77 said...

Semi-reliable sources saying Boucher turned down CBJ.

Wow.

Dear Habs, please show him some love in return. Muchas gracias.

moeman said...

BouCHer, BouCHer, stay away from Tampa Bay.

HabsFan29 said...

RDS says he refused. if only he can stay away from the other offers, we can promote him in November when the Habs start 2-10

Tyg said...

I hope Gautier worked out an understanding with Boucher about succeeding JM in a year or two. Wouldn't hurt to bring him up as an assistant in the meantime.

Columbus Dispatch is also reporting he declined the offer. Hopefully it means he's waiting for the Habs gig, and not just waiting for a better offer from Tampa Bay or NJ.

Mondays fucking suck.

moeman said...

Gonna add a new wrinkle to the Guy BouCHer sweepstakes. Is it me or is BouCHer not TFS™-like? Yes he's won his way up. Yes he has pedigree and potential. Yes he is relatively inexperienced and not expensive. Yes he is coveted. Yes someone stands in his way (Halak=Muller?) on the Habs ladder to the top.

So, da meedja, when it comes time to reporting honestly and with integrity, on the upcoming Carey/Jaro $ituation, maybe do it with a grain of salt.

Also,

Beer for the best of us;

@moe: Yeah, Muller would equal Halak, except the other guy in Muller's case speaks French. There's no way Muller is ever head coach in Montreal because of the language factor, so he's really no competition for St.Guy.

moeman said...

I agree J.T. In Montréal its called The Pierre Principle.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@JT and Moe
I'm not listening. My hands are covering my ears. La la la la la la la la la. Hmmmmmmmmmmm. Muller is a Hab and he will be forever and ever and ever. Hmmmmmmmmm. I can't hear you. La la la la la la la la.

Mr. natural said...

@all: I luv you all, you are a seriously goofy Bunch-O-'Tards.

Ya crazy PHucks!

I love this town, should/when our new beloved displace Count Chocula, we will all be pissing down St-Pierre's leg come the pre/post X-mas annual break meltdown.

And I personally shall quaff the first pint and start the proceedings, it's what we do.

Dum - dee - dum -dee - dum - DAH! Can't wait 'till September, Dum - dee - dum - dee - dum - DAH!

Drink up Shriners.

Everytime I try to post a comment on puckdaddy I get a server hangup issue. EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Has this been happening to anyone else?

Sonia said...

Boucher to Tampa

Frak...

Number31 said...

FUCK.

Here goes 4 more years of futility and hope dashed away unless the boys scrape their way with every inch of their lives. And he takes his staff too. And the development of the kids heads for the shits again.

I will now return to drowning my sorrows in cheesy Sci Fi TV shows. Then I'm heading for the Galipeault Bridge. I'll get an ice cream first.

Chenny13 said...

Swarkles: It happens to me all the time as well. I've just given up.

As for Boucher, as awful as it is, let's look on the bright side: Maybe this means that Muller will be sticking around to take over the reigns. Deluded hope? Probably.
