The Morning Skate for Monday, July 5th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of winning Wimbledon...

Right. Just another off-season Monday. Not sure if it was the Independence Day holiday yesterday in the States or what, but there seems to have been a signing freeze over the weekend. When the biggest NHL story is someone not signing, that's a slow news day. To show you how slow, here's various Habs (and now ex-Habs) talking about... household chores.

Kovalchuk wants 10-million dollars and a helicopter.

J.T. said...

Oh, Jaro. :(

x-ine said...

J.T., I said the EXACT same thing. And I may have teared up a little. SIGH.

Kmaxx said...

Seriously...how many of those guys don't have a dishwasher...or a chick to load the dishwasher for them...(sorry if that sounds sexist - but at least I'm being honest. I'm sure Chantal would agree!

Caduceus said...

@JT: I totally agree...

You can tell a lot about a person's attitude when you hear his/her answers to questions like this...

And is it me, or is Markov sweating more than Patrick Ewing?

Even though I don't like Burke in a professional/hockey fan way, I must admit this story was touching. Reminds me of BG and his daughter a few years back.

soperman said...

@ Orangeman

It's okay to think Burke is a good human being but a big blowhard dufus dick-wad as a GM of the worst team in sports. I would bet that more people agree with the first part than the second part (though not just Habs fans agree with the second part.)

94 days. Fuck.

meh. - gillis

Hup Holland. OK 29, I'm with ya now - just because it's easier to find hot Dutch fans compared with the other teams.
Germany looks pretty freakin' strong though. /end soccer interest

heh, nice wink to CHantale there Squid.

jesse said...

Looks like Kovy 2 is signing in Jersey for 7 years at 60 mil, which apparently puts them about 4 million over the cap. Parise or Zajac for Big Tits anyone?

L Dude said...

Sadly, jesse, both Parise and Zajac have very similar cap hits to Uniboob(© LDude).

Just wait. He'll hit his stride this year (he is UFA next year). And Avtsin will be that big top 6 winger we've been looking for. It's gonna be great.

moeman said...

Dude from L knows, Avstin (needs a nickname before he's traded to Colorado) is gonna be a good one.

kevincrumbs said...

Hunh. No more Pierre Boivin. I feel odd that I don't know how I'm supposed to feel about this.

RiRi said...

Oh, PK! :)

L Dude said...

moeman: I'm thinking something along the lines of Double A, Batteries Not Included, No Batteries Required, Aaaaaaaaaaaaah Fuck - another bust!, Alex Advil - he'll give you a headache, ....

I should go now. Happy 5th of JULY!

The Twitters are saying Bob Probert is dead. Collapsed on a boat. He was 45. Man.

Mr. natural said...

That's fucked up.

LJ said...

RIP Bob.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Bob Probert is trending worldwide just one below vaginal dryness. What's a guy gotta do to get ahead of vaginal dryness.

orangeman said...

GG11: That's an age old question, really.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Orange
Yes it is. It comes right after the other age old questions...

isn't child birth enough?

and

how come men aren't self lubricating - anatomically speaking, that is?

Ronan said...

RIP Bob, your repeated face-smashings of Tie Domi will be remembered!
