The Morning Skate for Tuesday, December 14

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of your streak ending...
  • The Sens did manage to come back from three goals down, they did manage to get some points form their pointless captain, but end up losing in OT 4-3 to the Thrash;
  • The rest of the games were in the West, so really, who cares? Here's a link to an NHL scoreboard. Highlights include Jonathan Quick stopping 51 shots to shutout the Wings, the Little Fuckity Fuck scoring a goal in a Dallas win, and a wild 7-5 win for the Avs over the Hawks, as down 5-4, the Avs scored 3 goals in the last 2:24 of the game to win;
  • A Phlyer got suspended. No really, it's true!
  • Dustin Boyd placed on waivers. Again;
  • Just in case you missed the practice lines in the comments yesterday, let's get them down for all eternity: Gio-PatCHes-Pie, Pleks-Squid-Moen, Tits-Laps-Halpern, and CHicken-Lego-DarCHe. Basically take all your offensive players and spread them around all four lines. You know, because we're such a high-scoring team, or something.
We are really starting to get nervous for this Philly-Bs double.

Fucking snow.

L Dude said...

Maybe you should take the day off and go outside and make a snoeman.

No matter how much rain we get, I don't have to shovel it.

I can't wait to see what Patches can do/how JM will fuck him up.

L Dude said...

Maybe smoeman is better?

moeman said...

I'd make the bonhomme de beige but I am out of carrots.

bea.habs.fan said...

how about making us a top 6 forward Moeman? or a point man for the PP.
bet it would be a s good as some of the players we have now

I'm goign to start drinking now in the hope of not noticing the next 3 games.
given the weather, hibernation could be an option - and great for my 'dieting'

Kmaxx said...

OK, from the way the practice lines are looking - one thing is very clear to me...we need some fuckin' nicknames for Halpern, Moen and Darche. They just don't sit properly along side the rest.

I can't think of a name for any of them that will stand the test of time, so help me people!

moeman said...

@bea, I'd make us those players but I am out of carrots.

Steve said...

@Kmaxx correct on nicknames

I thought DarCHe Vader was set.

For Moen how about Taps (Rona is full of Moen)

Halpern - he is a great utility player, so how about exacto or Razer like the superlative utility knife.

Le Douze said...

Great, now we have Moen and Pyatt as top 6 forwards, and big Tits on the checking line. Maybe JM can use Squid and Tits on the penalty kill next.

WV: Fecos - I shit you not. As in "Fecos, the random line generator used by losing hockey coaches everywhere."

Darksyde said...

For Halpern, I vote for, "The Moyle". Drives fear deep into the hearts of men!

Steve said...

@Darksyde

Colin James Moyle, CBE (born 1929) is a former politician of the New Zealand Labour Party. He was a Government Minister in the Third Labour and Fourth Labour Governments. In the Fourth Labour Government he oversaw the removal of farming subsidies and the establishment of a fisheries quota system.

iRiRi said...

Fear not, everyone, Gomez is skating with the team and practicing with Gio and PatCHes!

Now, if we could just get JM to put AK46 back with Pleks/Squid...

moeman said...

Maybe JM ain't seein' straight. Someone send him some carrots.

Anonymous said...

"a phlyer suspended" I'm still laughing

bea.habs.fan said...

@Moeman
instead of carrots use empty wine bottles for your snow art
but full one for Martin's coaching.
everything cannot get more screwy than presently

Polyanna's doom and gloom-free zone:

Much as we know that the Habs are the NHL's be-all-and-end-all, the Phucktards are likely way more preoccupied with Sid & crew for tonight. With luck, they may even be softened up a bit for tomorrow night (hope hope hope).

The Bruins on the other hand...

Hadulf said...

What do you all think? I think it would be great for this season, it's the rest of the contract I wouldn't want...

Steve said...

@Hadulf I like the idea of stocking up for a cup run. Plus we dont give up any future, its only money and we have a cap space due to Vodkov. Its a no brainier, which is exactly why the Goat will not do it.

Steve said...

Rolston is a perfect fit for MEX, he has 4 points and is a minus 6 for the year. But he is 6' 2" and I think that over the height and weight limit for the Habs.

moeman said...

Grab him on re-entry. I know, sounds dirty.

Moey said...

Fuck the snow is right. I just shoveled the path which is totally against my WIP pedigree. (West Island Princess).

@29,

If you're nervous this is a good thing. Everytime we think they're going to suck against the B's and Flyers they win. Right? Right? Okay, I'm trying to convince myself. *queasy stomach*

moeman said...

nervous, sCHmervous, 29, go out for dinner tomorrow night. Take it out of my payCHeque. Say hello to Kirstin and tell her the dessert was on me (yes, I know, it sounds dirty).

moeman said...

Also, Scarlett Johansson is apparently a newly free(d) woman. Just sayin' 29.

Number31 said...

How broken is Rolston anyway? He may need to come with duct tape if the Habs care to nab him on re-entry...

moeman said...

The only thing broken about Rolston is he is breaking Lou's pigy bank as Parise is likely to return soon. mcsplooge must be taking extra Vitamin E.

Orangeman said...

1-1 EDM-TOR after one. 4 TOR PPs in 2nd (EDM=0), TOR3-EDM1.

juuuuuuuuuuust sayin'.
