The Morning Skate for Monday, March 7th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of advancing in the Davis Cup...
  • PHucktards get DESTROYED by the Rangers 7-0;
  • Caps take over the Southeast division lead with a 3-2 (OT) win over the Panthers, with Semin getting the OT winner;
  • Buffalo moves into 8th place in the East with a 3-2 (OT) win over the Wild;
  • Devils continue to make it interesting for themselves, beat the Isles 3-2 in a SO;
  • Flames solidify their playoff position and Iggy gets his 30th goal for the 10th straight year (on a penalty shot no less when he was tripped by Little Tits no less) in a 3-2 win over the Preds;\
  • Man that's a lot of 3-2 games;
  • Things are about to get even messier in Phoenix, if that was possible.
OK we'd say something trite like "big week ahead" but that would be pretty fucking obvious given it's March. But if you can't get up for the Bs tomorrow, well, you may need to seek medical attention.

Fuck Glendale, nothing pisses me off more than my tax dollars going to billionaires to employ millionaires, so I can pay billionaires to watch them play.

Thank goodness this could never happen in Canada.

I've been doing a lot of reading and researching on Chocula lately. There is a part of me that wants to hate him and see him go...then I look at what he has done and our record and then I stop thinking I want him gone...then I look at what I perceive as the way he treats the rookies like DDD and PFK and then I want him gone again...but then I think about the fact that they are producing so maybe what he is doing is the right thing...and then I realise that I've morphed into Todd Gill - so I need to lie down and let this shit pass...at least until after the Bruins game is over.

GYFCHG!

I'm going to start the sedation process now, so by Tuesday I should be in a proper state for the Beaners.

Steve said...

This is what I would like to see. Habs psyky ops team bribes Gawdons staff to replace timers glass with some of that Hollywood stuff. During the warm up our goon(Schultz) goes to the glass and tapes a picture of Pretzels ugly mug on the glass, then boom.

Steve said...

Not since Knute Rockney and the Gipper walked this earth has their been a coach who knows how to win like Jacques Martin. Since his implementation of the CHannibis System the team has never been higher. So fuck off with the Chocula, its childish and undermining morale, please use Lindor Chocula in the future.

I was watching curling yesterday (I know) and the Quebec team did the triple low five after winning their game. It was pretty sweet. Not PFK/TFS sweet, but sweet nonetheless.

Got me to thinking it'd be awesome to have a bonspiel with hockey players. Battle of the Blades except instead of stupid figure skating it's the awesome sport of curling. Call it NHL Ringmasters or something corny like that.

We got a couple of prairie boys in Moen and White for starters. Should have a 2 Canadian per team limit. Wonder if Gomez can sweep? And I think Eller would make a great lead.

Steve said...

L Dude, thats a great fucking idea.

I might change it a bit for dramatic effect, each end stats with a rock already in bullseye. At one end you have Prongers head sticking up and the other Pretzels, and in the interests of preventing concussions, they can wear helments.

Kmaxx, you crack me up. I think I'm falling in love with you. Good, funny writing does that to me.

Raarrrrr.....

Steve said...

Last weeks Get to Know you Hab was such a big success, and although a little edgy passed without controversy. So to be topical and to amp it up a little. This weeks is which one of Charlie Sheens women would you like to win with.

Steve said...

The amazing thing is they did not all pick Bree Olsen. Gill asked "who is Charlie Sheens Mother"

Steve said...

@ Kmaxx, you ever been stopped at a roadblock and 4AM and cant find your drivers lic?

Moey said...

I think JHK and Charlie Sheen are one in the same.

Steve said...

Hi Moey, still High JHK? Does he play for Boston?

Kmaxx said...

@Steve - it was a very long time ago and I would ask you not to mention it again...Hang on - TODD Gill! - He was crap - played for the leaf when I lived in T.O.

@anon - thanks...The FHF gang tend to inspire me

HabsFan29 said...

You know sometimes I worry that JeffHK is lying dead at the bottom of Victoria Harbour (in HK) of an overdose, and no one really cares except us. I miss him.

Steve said...

Aww that JJeffHK

Steve said...

Links broke it was not funny anyway

Moey said...

@29,

Yeah, at the bottom of the harbour with no pants on. I miss him too.

McPhee said...

Anyone else noticed that the Habs scored exactly as many goals as Washington (with exactly the same amount of games played, for those who still care about games in hand despite of my previous rant on the topic)?

I'm liking this "CHannabis System" branding. Pass it around, peeps.

moeman said...

heh, tsn leads off with a segment about Tampa being a bunch of divers. Guess they read FHF.

Steve said...

I know I will never get an answer to the question who the fuck is Alice, but who the fuck is JHK, does he play for Philly and lost money in Macao and now will throw a game in our favour?

HabsFan29 said...

@Steve - I have no idea who Alice is. Sorry

As for JHK, that's short for "Jeff in Hong Kong" who was a long-time (though intermittent)commentor here before your time. He was on drugs, but he was brilliant. Once described by SLC of Five for Smiting as "the Hunter Thomson of FHF". search the archives, he actually posted once

Orangeman said...

Regarding that TB diving story, I find it interesting that Stevie Y and the Guy (tm) both came to Stamko's defence right away. I would like to think if other players or even the media made irresponsible and inflammatory comments about one of our young players Chocula and the Goat would also step up to set the record straight.

On TSN's video about the Habs they show Gomez joking about Gill's recent scoring, "We told him to just shoot at the net. haaha! Who knows what'll happen. hahahah!" I had to have my brain pumped due to irony overdose after listening to that.

Steve said...

Like why did Gill not turn all green and rip Mex a new asshole, and if your quote is real, why not? Not to spread dissemination, but we all live in the real world, and we know who is lightering and who is stagnation, and in the defense of the firm those kinds of evaluations can lay buried by the founders grave, until NCIS shows up.

Steve said...

I want Jethro to arrest Mex for impersonation a hockey player at time of war. I hope the Judge gives him a suspended sentential until June.

Fuck spell check it gets dumber than me every day.

Steve said...

@29 I thought she really loved me but when Alice left it all went like the Urologist career, except I dont live in Florida and get millions of dollars a year for passing the puck to people not on my own team. I can not shot the puck every time and miss the net, and I do know how to skate backwards. But I really dont know who Alice is. I do know that had she stayed we would be making comments together, we would have that and our hatred of bears in common.

moeman said...

Guess whiCH utensils' greeting is for the Bruins.

Steve said...

Enough with the silly stuff, by this time Tuesday a test will be well underway, a test of greatness, that I sincerely hope we prevail.

Go, Tits, Lego, Patches and Squid, may PFK score and Mex excel, Go You Fucking Habs GO, embarrassing the fuckers.

Steve said...

@moeman, I posted that before your post, shirley you are serious

HabsFan29 said...

OF COURSE the Caps / Bolts have a 3 point game

Number31 said...

While I was rooting for a Bolts loss, wtf was up with Boucher's choice for the shootout?! Did JMart temporarily take over his brain?

(Though shootout wins are rather irrelevant now).
