The Morning Skate for Monday, September 27th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of winning $10 million just for playing golf...
  • So apparently we have a pattern now. Carey lets up a bunch of goals one night then the "B" team comes back with a win the next night. Not sure how we feel about that. Andreas Engqvist scored in the Habs' 4-3 win over the Wild last night. PatCHes looked good and had two assists in his fight for a job, and Brandon Nash (who?) had 1G 1A. Gui! was a non-factor;
  • Habs are right back at it tonight against the Panthers, and it's on RDS, so the whole province can see Carey fall apart;
  • Who remembers El Dandy? Anyway, he's riding off into the sunset;
  • Who remembers Swiss Mister? Anyway, he may be out 6 months;
  • Hopefully The Bulin Wall took a cab to the arena to help beat the Canucks 8-2;
  • Wade Redden was placed on waivers over the weekend. Didn't he used to be an elite defenseman?
SITE NEWS YOU CAN USE: I know some of you have had problems with comments lately. Our apologies. It turns out Blogger implemented a comment spam system without telling us. So if you post a very long comment and it has a link in it (like, say, a song parody with a YouTube link), it may get flagged as comment spam and not posted, even if you're a veteran commentor (like, say, moeman). And the system doesn't tell us it's flagged as spam because it's stupid. So if you think a comment of yours has been eated by the interweb computers, tell us with another (shorter) comment or an email and we'll release it from the spam queue of death. As an apology for the inconvenience, please enjoy Mr. natural's birthday present. Mmmm, natural.

@ Mr. Natural

It is very generous of your to share your birthday gift with us! I may not have been so selfless.

WV "scista" as in "The girl in that picha is my scista."

Robert L. is leaving his blog Eyes On The Prize. I think many of us have been reading that blog and i believe it's worth mentionning. Not sure how you guys feel about it, but seing as how i discovered this blog thanks to him talking about it, i find it would only be fair we do a gesture for him somehow.

WV: Hal Gill is our mitiest player.

Le Douze said...

Geez, Mr. natural, who gave you Selma Hayek for your birthday? I'll have to have a word with my wife. Most she ever gave me was a used Meryl Streep, and she knows I fucking hate Maryl Streep.

bea.habs.fan said...

being the pessimist that I am, I hesitate to watch the game tonite.
I may choose to just watch teh new Dexter episode I PVRed last night.

Or I could take a chance and watch the Bell Centre implode or riot - which will make for better TV?

should we prepare the tar and feathers?

I don't know what to think about management, the media, Carey or anyone else. I'm hanging on to the fact that in his first game he let in half the SOG and in the second only a fifth. that's gotta be an improvement, right? RIGHT?

WV: is Price part of the 'undad' as pleks was a couple of seasons ago?

soperman said...

Geez. Too bad about Robert L. I can't believe he hasn't got something else lined up. Anyone hear anything?

Wv lestick as in Mad Max hit Komo across the face avec lestick.

I write my french placement test this week. I am screwed.

Price in nets? Boo birds of Montreal unite!

Steve Said: Price is only fucking 22, dont play him at home until he can touch his toes.(standing upright)

Well nothing like looking at things in Laff land to cheer up. Kadri the first Muslim to ever skate in a Hockey Jihad, sucks, the first first round draft pick in leaf history looks like a worse wickehauser.HA HA, build some more condos MLG

The VM gave me skibush, slema skies as well

Mr. natural said...

@soperman and Le Douze and everybody else...

STOP LUSTING AFTER SALMA I'LL PHuken'KILL ALL OF YOU, SHE'S MINE MINE MINE!!!

exception made for orangeman, what with the breakdown and all, if she doesn't cheer you up nothing will.

Hey orangie go to Munich for Oktoberfest, still two weeks left, that will surely have a positive effect, those PHucing Bavarians can drink and what's up with the size of those beers?

Oktoberfest must be German for "Boobs and Beer".

Lederhosen all around.

soperman said...

@ mr. natural

only because it is / was your birthday, dude!

moeman said...

Bonne Fête Monsieur Naturel.

RiRi said...

I've got a winning feeling about tonight! Go Carey!

Keep Spacek's TOI to a minimum and we're golden!

GYFHG!!!

P.S. Anyone else hear McSplooge lose his mind on air this afternoon? Quite entertaining!

moeman said...

Man has Steve Bégin lowered himself to cleaning under the feet of anti-CHambrerers? eesh.

HabsFan29 said...

OK CAREY IT'S DO OR DIE NOW!!!!

@RiRi - i wish i heard that. on Team 990? we need a recording. what did he lose what's left of his mind about?

RiRi said...

@29 - Yes, on the Team 990. Raving about how he would have kept both Price and Halak (this after saying that the cap makes it harder to keep players) and freaking out about how Gainey spent way too much on FAs last year and we're all screwed. Bitter.

HabsFan29 said...

good work by Carey there

(don't jinx it. don't jinx it. don't jinx it.)

Ronan said...

WV: defoxy, as in "Defoxy ladies of Montreal"

I couldn't NOT post after getting that, so, uh... that Engqvist guy looks good?

HabsFan29 said...

can't really blame carey there

HabsFan29 said...

anyone notice something seems to be painted over white just inside the blue lines? what sponsor's cheque bounced?

Bill 101 said...

@29..but thousands will

HabsFan29 said...

Jaro 2.0 for 1-1!

btw can we just call him Jaro now? can i get a ruling?

RiRi said...

I apologize to Spacek. I don't know anything about hockey.

He owed Carey, anyways.

RiRi said...

PFK is killing me with all these penalties.

PleXXXe!!! Worth every cent!

HabsFan29 said...

pleXXXe! on the Gui!-type wraparound

the Maritimer said...

@29 - That's where the Coupe Stanley symbols were painted last spring...remember? They need to repaint the whole surface.

HabsFan29 said...

ur right Maritimer. tho you'd think they'd have taken care of that in the, what, 5 months since

HabsFan29 said...

great, Benny is praising Price. THAT will jinx it

Ronan said...

Ah, Benny. The only player who spends more time sprawled on the ice than Price.

bea.habs.fan said...

just joining in.
afraid to say, so far so ...

the Habs should winuan for its fans

HabsFan29 said...

Tommy Boy Pyatt to make it 3-1! If only we can hang on this all important preseason game against the Panthers will be ours

HabsFan29 said...

5-1. The rout is on.

Ryan White wants a job. Badly.

Number31 said...

Is it me or did the Habs drink some energy juice before the 3rd? They're buzzing.

Anonymous said...

Nice to see PleCannon tearing up the preseason.

Bill 101 said...

Gomez is a card on the radio tonight - excellent shots.

wv: Gomez & Momesso hafeenc a grand old time

RiRi said...

I want Ryan White on the team. Badly.

Stupid one-way Darche contract.

Also, he needs a nickname. Whitey ain't cutting it.

Orangeman said...

@natural:

I've been to Octoberfest, actually. I have a giant Bavarian hat sitting above my bedroom door right now along with a giant mug I, uh, borrowed from them. I've never told anyone this before, but I got so drunk I peed my bed which isn't so great in a 30 person dorm in a hostel. There's more to the story, mostly involving a punchy Irishman, but I wouldn't want to hijack the comments here. I'll just let you know when the book comes out.

Re: Habs. Pre-season. Meh. But I did finally get my, uh, totally legit and authentic Muller jersey I sent from Korea this past weekend. You know what I love about Muller? I don't have to talk about Price.

Number31 said...

White needs to make the team. We need his energy.

Gomez on the radio = worth the cap hit.

moeman said...

Ryan White Lightning! Or Zeus.

Bill 101 said...

Ryan White Lovers! yes, how can you not respect a guy who announces: "I worked my bag off all summer" to make the team.

That's gotta count for something.

Mr. natural said...

@orangeman: LOL, sounds like a story that needs to be told one day.

Glad to hear that you are sounding less maniacal and somewhat more normal.

Plan the parade!
