Hockey's back, baybeeee!!! B's preview and open thread for shut-ins who have lost the remote

Our long national hockeyless nightmare of a summer is over. At 7:30 PM tonight, live from the Bell Centre and broadcast on RDS, Le Tricolore are on the ice for an actual hockey game. Sort of. It's exhibition for fuck's sake. We're excited, but we're not really excited. We want to watch, but we don't want to watch. Will you watch? Should you watch? Let's break it down to help you decide.

Why You Should Watch: Hockey, fuck yeah!!!
Why You Should Not Watch: Pre-season hockey is usually as exciting as watching a 2-hour Americal Idol results show.

WYSW: Louis Leblanc! Louis Leblanc! Louis Leblanc!!!
WYSNW: RDS announcers spending 3 hours McSplooging over Louis Leblanc! Louis Leblanc! Louis Leblanc!!!

WYSW: To see how Montreal reacts to the beginning of the official Carey Price era (p.s. Jaro let in 3 goals on 18 shots last night for a .833 save %. Suck it, TFS haters).
WYSNW: You will feel sick when the crowd turns on him after letting in his first goal.

WYSW: Aaron Palushaj. By all accounts, he's been great so far and Squid is excited to play with him.
WYSNW: There's no chance he'll be in the lineup on opening day so who gives a fuck.

WYSW: It's the Bs for fuck sake! Any chance for hating is good. Cornelius, wherefore art thou?
WYSNW: Without Chara in the lineup, the hate just won't feel the same.

WYSW: What the hell else you gonna do?
WYSNW: Uh, anything?

See you in the comments. Or not.

Sing?

G Y F H ! Pantalons!!!

Number31 said...

No Chara No Cry!

We could always get Tyler Seguin used to playing for the Bs by booooooooing him every time he touches the puck instead. Feel the love, kid! Welcome to the NHL.

If not, Horton Hears A Boo.

Mark said...

Every year I'm desperate to watch the first televised preseason game. But then again every year I think this year's All Star game will be fun.

bea.habs.fan said...

only think I can think of is HOCKEY HOCKEY HOCKEY!
I'm so desperate I'll watch an exhibition game - gets you reved up for Oct. 7

(exhibition laffs lost 5-0 to Sens; made my day after TSN went on about how trucculent leafs practise had been - like a mean edge is goign to help them)

RiRi said...

SQUID!!!

Don't mind me. Just getting some practice for tonight.

It's here! It's finally here!

GYFHG!!!

Le Douze said...

nice photoCHop, GG. Gets us back in the mood ...

Allons-y, let's go!

LJ said...

.833 sv% not GAA.

Good news, NHL is back, Bad news so is mcsplooge.

GYFHG

soperman said...

@GG11

One of my colleagues came up behind me while I was on the computer and saw this morning's masterpeice. She was not impressed.

Great Job, GG11!!! You are the best! :o)

Darksyde said...

Canadiens....FUCK YEAH!

I don't give a sweet, merciful shit (aka a Phaneuf) if it's preseason. It's hockey. I will watch. With no pants. And a semi. (Hey, it's only preseason...I save full wood for the regular season.)

GYFHG!

HabsFan29 said...

@LJ - thx, fixed. i gotta stop drinking at 7 AM

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Soperman
Not sure I'd be impressed either if I was a co-worker. I seem to have an out of body thing happening on this site. GG11 can post pics like that but JG, not so much. That said, enjoy!

soperman said...

@GG11

You should not use your initials, we are told never to type your name! :o)

Steve said : Leafs are gonna win tommoro

Quote from the TO STAR about Losers PP

Instead, the forward unit receiving the bulk of extra man time up front was the trio of Kris Versteeg, Nazem Kadri and Colby Armstrong. They got nothing done as the plan seemed to be, get the puck to Phaneuf at the point and see if he wound a Senator.

Chester said...

Louis Leblanc isn't getting enough ice time !!!

.... oh ... I should wait till the game starts ... sorry

HabsFan29 said...

oh CHester that made me laugh

here's some pre-game reading. BR has a classic column, telling the fans to support TFS while at the same time taking jabs at him. that's talent

L Dude said...

soperman, GG's been outed by Boone over at HIO more than once.

JG: Thank you for your alter ego's ability to make and post your wonderful works of art. There's lots of FHF ladies too, as you know, so I'm sure you will throw them a bone on occasion.

Off topic (sort of). Mrs and Ms LD tell me the new Steve McGarrett is hawt. He's all right I guess. But he's no Jack Lord.

eVISUAL said...

Why why why, whyning bunch. Bleu•blanc•rouge. That's all you need to know. Sit, go into the daze of the red on your brain. Skating all over the fucking place, puppin goals in and in and in. Keep it down in the back.
It's like dipping your toe in the water on your 1st summer dunk, or the 1st contact of scotch on your lips on a cool September night, or that first touch when your wife has been away for 2 weeks.
fuck man it's started again! yo-wooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

lawyergirl77 said...

So... Netflix comes to Canada AND the Habs start playing hockey again on the same day??

BE STILL MY BEATING HEART! WOO!!!!

(Granted, Netflix's selection thus far is utter shite and it's only pre-season hockey but I ain't lettin' nuthin' harsh my buzz, dammit!!)

moeman said...

In a McSploogian way, I love this place. Do I sound excited? GO YOU FUCKING HABS!

bea.habs.fan said...

@ LD got to agree with your ladies; I watched the pilot just for him. He used to be on a vampire detective show on CTV a couple of years back an I remember thinking I'd let him bite me anyday/night (kind of like a brunette Eric for TB fans)

DROP THE PUCK ALREADY (DTPA - a new glossary term or should that be DTFPA?)

Le Douze said...

@bea - definitely DTFPA!, IMHO.

@LG77 - Just moved back from the US to Canada, and definitely one of the bigger drawbacks was the lack of full Netflix. On the other hand, we found last year that NHL Gamecenter makes a pretty good alternative ... and if your DVD player breaks midseason, it doesn't seem to be so necessary to fix it.

@GG (or JG, with or without the Pussy Cats) - I second soperman and LD, keep up the good work. And don't be afraid to throw the FHF ladies a "bone", as LD says ... ignore the idiots who complain about it, they're just freeloaders anyway.

Moey said...

I watched the leafs/Sens last night, how sad is that? Well, not quite as pathetic as the leafs looked. They were God awful. I enjoyed it with every fiber of my leaf hatin' being. Losers.

Habs tonight!! Damn straight I'm watching it. With a drink. Or two.

Bill 101 said...

I'm going to wait a couple of weeks to formally toast (hmm..maybe a live sacrifice this year?) the 2010/11 season, but it does sort of feel like the first day back at school.

GYFHG!

soperman said...

@ L Dude

Yeah, I know - just figured her alter ego wasn't cool with that...

the Maritimer said...

I'm waiting for Wendel Clark's Balls to show up here. Nothing brightens up a blog like bitter laffs fans.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Sperman and LD's
I couldn't be happier to get back to work. DrGG not so much.

No idea what lies ahead. All depends on how twisted I feel at the moment, alter ego or no alter ego.

HabsFan29 said...

WOOOHOOOO!!!!GYFHG!!!!

so you guys promise to keep poking me to keep me awake, right?

HabsFan29 said...

Carbo looks stiff behind the desk. he holds a pen well, though

HabsFan29 said...

wooo! puck drop!!!!!!

zzzzzz

bea.habs.fan said...

wasn'tt Brunet supposed ot be gone?

any boos yet for Price?

HabsFan29 said...

FUCK

TFS didn't look great on that one. oy

RiRi said...

Please tell me that wasn't booing. Please.

Moey said...

Eeeww. Softie. Uh Oh.

Ronan said...

Yet another goal off his own defenceman (though still not pretty...)


This Palushaj guy looks good, though.

HabsFan29 said...

the sky is falling

don't think carey had much chance there tho

beahabsfan said...

well that was quick.
goodthing it means nothing

HabsFan29 said...

oh god now they're really booing

beahabsfan said...

weel this is a pathetic start.

did I already mention it was a good thing it didn't count?
let me reiterate

High Glove Side said...

me no likey

Ronan said...

This is the weak squad, right? Our star sniper, #1 centre, and starting goalie play on Friday, right?

Right?

moeman said...

@GG, "@Sperman", best FHF typo ever.

TFS™ looked unTFS™-like on all 3 goals.

beahabdfan said...

I'm now goign Zen.
it's a game to get the kinks out, to see the youngones and the screwiest booboos to occur.

HabsFan29 said...

ok worst period of the season is out of the way. it's all sunshine and lollipops from here!

orangeman said...

Just got home from class, throw off the pants sit down to watch the game on the computer (some habits are hard to break). Nice young neighbour-lady comes knocking to borrow tools and I have to yell out 'JUST A MINUTE' while I very audiably search for my pants and take a good 2 minutes to get to the door. My seat in front of the computer is nicely laid out. I'm sure it totally didn't look like I was masturbating at all. I mean, everyone throws off their pants and plants themselves in front of the computer right when they get home and then answer the door flustered and out of breath, right?

And now I have to keep my pants on till she comes back. Or not...depending on how I want to approact this situation.

HabsFan29 said...

i stand corrected

orangeman said...

I also want to note that the first thing I heard Carbo and the boys say when I tuned in was "All three goals weren't his fault" and I knew where this was going. And here's another. I'm having deja vu. Hard deja vu. Oh, and the crowd gets on him. Super. This is going to be a fun season.

beahabsfan said...

christ SHG.
I may opt for u can dance canada.
can't be worse

spoke to soon. theyre booing already.
seriously poeple it's just an exhibition game

Moey said...

I feel like this is partially my fault. I went into work this morning all smug and taunting co-workers who are leaf fans.

orangeman said...

No matter what happens tonight, or at any point in the future, just remember these are the the same Bruins who gave up a 3-0 series lead and 3-0 game lead to the Phlyers. Thinking about that is like being wrapped in my loving mother's bossom.

beahabsfan said...

nice Moey.
you're now going to have to make it up to `price.
what does a rodeo star want for comfort food? heifers?

WV> ughtj!!!!! (price less)

Bill 101 said...

@Moey - thanks for fessing up

hey - 17 shots so far. that's great right? awesome offence and uh

beahabsfan said...

technically we can blame the Leafs for the dominant play of Bruins rookies.
they got 4 players in the first 2 rounds!!!

HabsFan29 said...

ok curtis sanford is in. we're saved!

Moey said...

@Bea & Bill,

While I was doing it I had the niggling feeling that it was gonna bite me hard in the ass tonight, but I just couldn't help myself.

Moey said...

Cue the comeback.

Ronan said...

Take that shortie and shove it, you fuckers!

RiRi said...

LAPPY!!!

The comeback is on, bitches!

orangeman said...

Hey I remember those!

GGGGOOOOOOAAAAALLLL!

Let me have this.

beahabsfan said...

now RDS has a good excuse to interview all the Frenchies outside of the rookies.

moeman said...

@Moey, "While I was doing it I had the niggling feeling that it was gonna bite me hard in the ass tonight, but I just couldn't help myself.
"
, could easily be taken out of context, by a pantsless orangeman.

moeman said...

SuperPleXXXe!

orangeman said...

Have I mentioned that the Broons have a history of giving up tremendous leads? Just making sure that someone has brought up the fact that Boston has recently given up huge leads, both in series and game form. As long as someone brought attention to the Beaners' habit of blowing laughably large leads.

moeman said...

Imagine id orangeman typed loads instead of leads.


WV = cremic

moeman said...

id = is, yes my Freudian slip is showing, NTTIAWWT.

beahabsthere said...

@Moeman LOL

no surprise there.
pleks rules yet again.

orangeman is thinking it'd be simpler to just sign in, but can't do it because it's just the preseason said...

Nice one, moeman. You sick bastard.

Moey said...

@moe

Excellent as always.

moeman said...

Thx FHFriends, I please to aim.

moeman said...

CHicken CHoked on that one.

orangeman said...

Wow, this is...this is pretty intense for the preseason. I may have to sign in.

moeman said...

21-12 SOGs sounds like an cool album name.

Ronan said...

Pyatt and Lapierre look like they're in a playoff game (and Pyatt seems a lot stronger and more physical than last year).

Pyatt-Eller-Lappy for the third line?

RiRi said...

Lou-ee! Lou-ee!

Too early? Nah.

P.S. Anyone else having problems posting comments?

moeman said...

Things fine here ReeRee, orangeman's hands might be a bit tied up though.

Moey said...

Ri,

I've been having them for a couple of months, I don't get a WV the first time around. Pain in the ass.

RiRi said...

@Moey - Yup. Missing WV and also a "Please try again later" or something message.

Bill 101 said...

and in other news:

Momesso was plodding in his debut on the radio tonight

gotta go polish my spats now.

Moey said...

Ri,

Not only that, but you'd think with a registered google account you wouldn't have to type in your email and password every effin' time. *sigh*

Well, it's beddy bye time. 'Night all.

RiRi said...

Oh well. Can't say they didn't try. There's always tomorrow. And Friday. And Saturday...

moeman said...

Bring on the truculent Sens, 29 fucking penalties in 2 games. Sure thing refs.

RiRi said...

Okay maybe not tomorrow...

orangeman is satisfied in more ways than one said...

@moeman: Nope, always got one free one.

That was a good finish. I'm just glad there's nothing to cause controversy in Habsland after this game. Nope, nothing at all.

Did I mention the Broons gave up huge leads in the post-season last year? Just making sure.

Number31 said...

Habs fans just hit a whole new level of stupid. In pre-season.

Other than that... Tinordi: Can we keep him?
