What the hell, it's an Evening Skate

Bullet points for what you missed while wondering if TMS is in Korea or something, where it's morning. But there are a few things to catch up on. To wit:
  • 17 years, $4o billion from the Devils for Kovalchuk. The amount may be exaggerated. The contract length, we assure you, is not. WEDNESDAY UPDATE: haha, just kidding;
  • Stevie Y continues his Tampa makeover, acquiring Simon Gagne for Matt Walker and a fourth-rounder. Another francophone not playing in Montreal;
  • The BR's of this world can at least be happy that the Habs have hired a local boy, Larry Carrière, as Assistant GM of Player Personnel. What kind of francophone name is Larry, anyway?
  • Carey Price remains unsigned.
As you were.

Man, this off-season sucks.

Or maybe it's just my life that sucks.

moeman said...

Also,

Habs got a new Francophone strength and conditioning coaCH. No more Matzah ball soup in the weight room, hello poutine!

WTFuck! Gio likes the Dropkick Murphys!?

I don't wish Kovy any harm but how hilarious would it be if he had a career ending injury in the first game of the season?

GoldenGirl11 said...

Why is the matza ball soup always the first thing to go?

moeman said...

@GG11, blame all them old Vaudeville comedians. Had I channelled Seinfeld it would've been the marble rye.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Great now I want marble rye.

moeman said...

Me, I want some babka.

Mmmm babka. Cinammon though, not chocolate, the lesser babka.

I don't think I could watch ANY player for SEVENTEEN fucking straight years.

Thank God the Canadiens don't indulge in that nonsense. Wait a minute... I wonder if TFS and Gauthier are engaged in negotiating a lifetime contract?

Had to delete my first comment. I think I posted that I wanted lox & cream cheese on a toasted beagle.

moeman said...

Heh, Moey has gone to the dog(s).

Moey said...

@moeman,

Or she's moved to Korea.

Number31 said...

I'm told the world won't even last 17 more years so what the hey, may as well enjoy it right?

moeman said...

@Korean Moey, BYOBeagle.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@31
If the world implodes in 2012 no one wins and no one loses... well except mankind, of course, but everything is gone. Personally I would get far more enjoyment watching NJ pay out $150M over 17 years as a retired-due-to-injury Kovy golfs.

Moey said...

@moe,

Never ever would happen. Can't even bring myself to visit the place. I'd get arrested on the first day.

Let's start an evil rumor.
Price is also negotiating with
a team in the KHL that promises to
fly him home to BC once a week.
Possibly Vladivostok.

Hypnotoad said...

Hey do you remember how everyone laughed at the Islanders and called them fucking retards when they gave Rick DiPietro a 15 year contract? And then he got injured and everyone laughed louder. I can't wait to see how this one will turn out.

moeman said...

Habs get all randy.

Randy Cunneyworth is your worthy Bulldogs coaCH.

http://www.rds.ca/bulldogs/chroniques/302900.html

Randy Softness is the assistant coaCH.

Stevie Y. syphoned two more of the Habs Francophones.

Cue BRs next manifesteau.

Mojitos!

the Baruch said...

this all smells like WV:catship

Dogs will suck royally next year. Those two won't last a season. Ladouceur was fired once already in the OHL going 18-45-5 with Oshawa (his only head coaching gig so far.)
Muller may have to go down and help out at one point, leaving les boys in the hands of evil count CHokula and Phat "you know what I'm like" Wale (aka 'Flopper') with only noble Perry 'Obiwan' Pearn to uphold the hallowed standards of Habs-of-yore.

Number31 said...

WHALERS!

kevincrumbs said...

Holy fuck, the league actually did something right for once and rejected Kovalchuk's contract.

Number31 said...

Yea, should have made it 12 years like everyone else in the League.

Risebrough said...

OK......WTF......!!!!
What kinda misguided fucked up priorities and judge of hockey talent do you guys have.......???

You have the audacity and stupidity to photoshop a "C" on the jersey of Big Tits.....?? A better option would be to strip him of the jersey itself, NEVER mind the fuckin' "C"....!!!!

Then you waste all that space talkin' bout the overinflated contract of the equally cancerous KovalPUKE.....!!!

You even mention a link to the useless Vancouver Canucks retirement of the jersey of a meek and dubious ex-Captain who won the grand total of about 3 playoff rounds combined IN a CAREER....!!! Never in ONE year....!!
(I should know I live there)

ALL along the real hockey story of the week/summer/year lies with the retirement of a guy with more heart in his left Nut than all the Russkies that ever have played in the NHL combined......and for a whole fuckuva lot less than $100M for all his NHL contracts combined......!!! Who punched their lights out (literally) for Canada's Juniors in Piestany.....!!

I would expect and YES demand a whole FUCK of a lot more attention when a former REAL (Not photoshopped) CAPTAIN and former CUP Winner (remember when those used to happen....??? I said STANLEY CUP...not playoff round.....!!) and heart and soul of just about every team he ever played for...
A guy Patrick demanded be traded along with him in 94....a CUP winner on 3 different teams......!!!

fer Crisssssssssakes how about a lil bit o' love and words of praise and thanks......

an elegy for Captain MIKE KEANE...!!!

Mr. natural said...

@Risebrough, HEY easy there big fella, I'm the psycho nut job here!

When it comes to misinterpreting and overreacting to this blog and the comments therein you have certainly taken it to new heights, congratulations, a "C"(crazy canuck) for your jersey.

the Maritimer said...

Dougie!!!!
I remember when you were a nasty piece of business playing for my beloved Habs. You, Mario the little backstabber and Yvon the Bruins killer formed an excellent 3rd line that would probably be a good 2nd line in today's NHL.

Thanks for the man love for the Keaner, who nobody ever said was too small to play in the league. It still kills me that he was shipped out with St. Pat for those two bozos Rucinsky and Kovalenko. Curse Reggie Houle anyway...

And I see the latest Hab trade rumour has 2010 1st round pick Jared Tinordi being shipped out to Vancouver for Kevin Bieksa. Holy Fuck! They must be smoking some high grade crack out in B.C. these days.

Here is the good news we were all waiting for:

Brunet is out!

@Maritimer: I think that's a Eklund rumour, which guarantees that it's false.

the Maritimer said...

@KC, I would never mention an E....d rumour here. Boone had a link to it this morning, originating in BC.

wv = I am immunie to Benoit Brunet because I don't speak French.
