We have signings!


Since the Habs have absolutely no money to play around with July 1st, we'll have to content ourselves this week with the signings of our current crop of players. And today we have been delivered two! Huge ones! Whoppers!

RFAs Benoit "CHicken" Pouliot and Tom (McSplooge: "Tommy!!") Pyatt have both signed one-year deals according to RDS. CHicken signs for $1.35 million and Pyatt takes a pay cut to a mere 500 thousand. In the playoffs, Pyatt was five times the player CHicken was, so he's easily worth $6.75 mill and thus the Habs really got a steal there.

So once TFS signs, that's our team. So did we improve ?

CHicken, CHeck.

Pie, CHeck.

Where's the pot!?

moeman said...

Can you smell how desperate TSN is to spin leaf news?

On their site "If the Toronto Maple Leafs are interested in acquiring centre Marc Savard, Brian Burke isn't saying anything about it." Bonus, fathead's pic.

Moey said...

How the hell can it rain the whole day and still be so frickin' humid? I hate sweating.

I hate rainy Mondays too, but the first thing I heard this morning was the Team 990 mocking "Burkies" draft picks. That cheered me up somewhat.

Love the photoshop GG.

@moe,

Little known fact about moi, I love chicken pot pie but there's so much fat in it I only have it about once a year. Crap, now I'm craving it.

moeman said...

@Moey, no reason for the pot pie to be fatty. The one I make is to sweat for. Maybe its my beCHamel.

I use cubed, grilled chicken breasts that have been liberally cajun spiced before hitting the BBQ.

I do a variation on http://www.canadianliving.com/food/phyllo_topped_chicken_pot_pie.php

@Moe
The 'pot' is the money in the background.

@Moey
Thanks. And agreed on the rain and the humidity at the same time. What is that? Kind of like Sergei being Sergei and still getting an offer. It's like a oxymoron without actually being an oxymoron or in Sergei's case, just a moron.

GG puts the G in Genius.

Moey said...

Thanks moe! Just reading the ingredients is giving me hunger pangs.

I'm gonna try that.

moeman said...

Moey its real good. Turkey is just as good. Substitute Thyme or Rosemary for a more Provençal twist.

Chicken needs to go back to Hamilton and get that old confidence back, Pyatt just needs to get on the ice,

Steve said...

I cant help but saying it.

I love eating chicken pie

For me everything tastes like chicken

Number31 said...

Pyatt! Wooooooo! And Pou too? That's ok, I guess.

Now they better sign Price before we're stuck with Desjardins as our only goalie...

Oleg Petrov said...

Moe, we would have had the chicken-pot-pie line, but they traded that L'Agostina guy to St. Louis or something.

gillis said...

Carey smoked the pot

the Baruch said...

WOnder why we don't sign Dominictrix...too expensive?

and, I lost track, have we resigned (are we resigned to ) little tits (maybe he'd be better called testy tits)? big tits? I mean please don't question my mamophilia but I don't think the habs need those two sets of tits.

lawyergirl77 said...

Very upset to see the Dominictrix and my Metro go. I'll be very sad to see them gone.

MAB - don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

Moey - Chicken pot pie really REALLY doesn't have to be fatty at all. Shortcut is to use reduced fat Campbell's cream of mushroom soup and to only put crust on the top. And chicken breast pieces rather than thigs/legs.

Oleg Petrov said...

Little Tits wasn't signed, just qualified. I don't expect him to sign, either - I see it as just a preserve-their-rights move on the Habs' part so that they can trade his rights around like they did Valentenko's.

L Dude said...

Ryan Potulny from the Oilers is a free agent centre. He could fill in the Chicken-Pot-Pie line very well.

Moey said...

LG,

Thanks for the tip, it's the pastry that adds all the fat. One problem though, Mr. Moey isn't a breast man (:

Have to stick with the thigh/leg combo.

Caduceus said...

So long, Lil Tits...

lehab said...

so... they have traded one of the best goalies in the league because he was an RFA and now have a mediocre goalie that is an UFA as well as an overrated whale that is also a RFA. Great management! GYFStLB

the Maritimer said...

Well, sometimes less tits is a good thing. I like this deal. Hope they get these guys signed, especially Boyd. You can always use another tough Western kid on the team.
