The Goat gets some work done, finally makes the most important signing of the summer

No, not him. I meant of course Pierre Allard, our new strength and conditioning coach. In addition, the Habs have added five new front office and scouting personnel. Former Hab Serge Boisvert (integral to the '86 Cup CHampions!) is now amateur scout for the province of Quebec. Now that we've thrilled BR with some francophones, we also have Ryan Jankowski as an amateur scout; he was formerly assistant GM of the Islanders. Because when you need to hire hockey personnel, your first thought should always be the Islanders. Christer Rockstrom will scout Europe, Vaughn Karpan will be a pro scout, and Ken Morin, a former McGill captain, was hired for the new position of "Hockey Information Coordinator." Because the one thing we need more of in Montreal is hockey information.

At least we know what The Goat has been up to while not signing you know who. Now he really has no excuses.

Scouts? We don't need no stinking Scouts! Didn't you guys report that The Goat bought a "Scoutbot 2000" when he fired everyone that he likely hired?

Goat watched Doctor Who and learned to pull the plug on Scoutbot2000 quickly when it started saying "YOU WILL BE LIKE US".

Holy Fuck that's one of my favorite Jpegs of all time. Kudos to the "Seabiscuit" post-it. Going out on a limb here but well done GG11?

WV: subballs

Premonition: Subban wins the Calder next season. Or ends up with a serious groin injury.

Carey Schmarey. What's more important is what designer is Chelsea Clinton going to wear on her wedding day. Sheesh people, get with the program.

Great photoshop GG!

Ha Ha Ha.

Seriously though, the Isles did have decent scouting, it's management that traded it away...

Qless said...

Great work GG, I really enjoyed this one. Apparently Boone did as well. You got a mention on Habs I/O. I think he outed you and used your real name....

@Moey
... and if they serve a traditional Southwest Baptist/Jewish meal of Fried kosher Chicken and gefilta'ed corn bread!

@Qless
Thanks. I've been outed so many times already that I'm the honorary grand marshal at the gay pride parade next year (nttawwt).

so i guess this means tremblay won't be on the next pantscast?

HabsFan29 said...

@ mr trivia - i get the feeling Mario would love to pound down some beers and shots and ramble. he's the perfect pants!cast guest

i look forward to him and bergeron killing each other on AntiCHambre

Kmaxx said...

@Mr T - I always hated Tremblay as a player and I hated him even more as a coach - what a fuckin' useless fuckin' tool he was. An arrogant cocksucker with nothing to back up the bullshit decisions he made on and off the ice. I don't mind the navel gazing they get up to on l'antichambre and Bergeron adds a bit of comic relief (kinda a la Cherry) but now, especially after a loss, Tremblay's goning to make me want to throw something at the laptop! Must remember to turn it off right after the game!

Thanks for that - I haven't vented like that in a while - it's been soooo quiet but I feel better now! Everyone have a nice weekend!

I concur.

GG, brilliant as usual ... are you channeling Down Goes Brown?

WTF happened to Sexy Friday? Maybe we can all share our recipes for a good sex fantasy.... Mine involves Mrs. Le12 and one of her GFs, trying to cheer me up about the Halak trade, by taking turns polishing my hockey stick (ahem) in front of the fireplace.

Of course, what would really happen, as they are Leafs fans, is that they would cry despondently and promise that things will be better next year.

Sigh.

How long until October?
