The Morning Skate for Tuesday, July 6th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of getting arrested for the purple drank...
Man, after a quiet morning yesterday, things picked up in a hurry. Not to mention GO ORANJE!!!!

IMPORTANT BLOGGING UPDATE! - Sorry everyone, there is an issue with the comments. It is a Blogger-wide problem apparently. Comments you make are not appearing. I do see them being made (I get comment notification) but they don't show up. Everyone say it with me - FUCK BLOGGER YOU FUCKING PIECE OF CRAP SHIT.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks to all of you who are posting comments anyway. ezzel, N31, Cornelius, soperman - you all get extra credit.

IMPORTANT BLOGGING UPDATE 2! - Comments seem to be showing up now. Please ignore the private conversation GG11 and I had about vacuuming and lint.

vanishing comments this morning?

RIP Bob... Long may you continue to facepunch in the great beyond.

Wow, 3 comments in on RueFrontenac actually sad to see MAB go or want him resigned. Now I'm really convinced no one actually watches the games...

Dammit Habs, no weekends for the dev camp :( I wanted to see our RC Cola Ovechkin, Avtsin...

So, how's it going? Thesis coming along? I'm going to wash my carpets today. Bought a mini bissel vacuum.

HabsFan29 said...

carpet-cleaning, woohoo!

GoldenGirl11 said...

Later today I might even clean the dryer thingie that collects lint. That is the stupidest invention of all time, btw. Can't tell you how many times I've heard a repairman say "I cleaned out the lint from your dryer and it's a good thing because it was so clogged you were minutes from a fire". WTF would any machine be sold that carries the warning "Can catch on fire if not cleaned out regularly. Must have arms 3 feet long and be able to slide your entire body through the vent to the outside or fire may still ignite". Somebody must be able to make a little light that goes off when the lint thingie is reaching a dangerous level, no? I bet lint In my dryer would suck up the oil spill in no time.

the lint-thingy should be cleaned after EVERY dry!

soperman said...

RIP BoPro

Vanishing comments and I get "explayer" as a WV? Man, that is seriously fucked up!

GoldenGirl11 said...

Of course! Bu still the sneaky lint that goes beyond the basket is a fire hazard. Beyond! Makes no sense.

It's hot here, too. Yesterday afternoon my thermometer read about 41C, which I think puts us well into the triple digits in the 'merkin scale they use around here. And today's supposed to go hotter.

Someone tell me I'm dreaming... I think that BR's column on RDS said that it was a good thing that the new (Anglo) boss was sweeping out the old (Francophone) prez. Mind you, if my rusty French is to be believed, it's because he thinks that Geoff Molson will more actively promote players from the Q than the pure laine Boivin. Seems weird, but maybe he's got a point... probably local boys make good business sense (to put bums in seats), but it's not so clear if it always makes good hockey sense.

I hope that referencing BR doesn't get me banned from FHF, by the way.

Le Douze said...

BR did have a good point about Biron, I thought ... I was wondering the same thing: Why the fuck did the Habs sign that Old Alex guy when they could have had a decent (if slightly shell shocked) goalie for less money?

Cowboyatheart said...

Looks like Halak signed. 4 Years, 15 Mill. Good for him.

lehab said...

Halak... 2.75 million the first year and escalating from there. Guess we could'nt afford that. What a fucking joke. I hope the phat whale gets a better offer sheet. Then what is the goat going to do. What a fucking moron. GYFStLB

L Dude said...

Actually lehab, I may be off on this, but I read an article somewhere along the line the past couple of days that said the Habs have under $3 million to sign Laps and Price. Considering Halak's 3.75 per year cap hit, I'd say he was indeed out of reach. Unless they decided to let Pleks walk instead of course.

Hang on Oranje!

cold Heinekens all around!

moeman said...

"General manager Pierre Gauthier confirmed today that Dominic Moore, Marc-Andre Bergeron, Paul Mara and Glen Metropolit are not in the Canadiens' plans for next season."

Thanks for your contributions Dominitrix, Métro! and Urologiste.

Also, congrats on the new contract Jaro.

moeman said...

Oops, Merci Monsieur Mara.

moeman said...

Bait, cut;

La fin pour David Fischer

Gauthier a profité de l’occasion pour indiquer que le Canadien n’avait pas l’intention d’offrir de contrat au défenseur David Fischer, qui avait été le choix de première ronde
en 2006.

En raison de cette décision, le Canadien obtiendra un choix compensatoire (probablement la 50e sélection en 2011) et Fischer deviendra joueur autonome sans compensation le 15 août.

«Nous avons avisé ses représentants que nous n’allions probablement pas lui offrir une nouvelle entente», a précisé Gauthier.
