Vindication for LG! Sabres 2, Habs 0



At the risk of giving ammunition to fuckface anonymous commentors,.. you know what, fuck it. I will openly taunt fuckface anonymous commentors who for some inexplicable reason insist on hanging around a blog they think is crap. Where nobody wants them. And for some reason, insist on attacking LG77 at every turn. Well, fuckface anonymous commentors, in case you didn't notice, LG77's  post that started this week of nastiness thanks to you was 100% correct. To the quote!

"One game they're flying, the next, they need to be relegated to the trash heap.  One day they're kicking ass, the next, they're getting their asses kicked. One night they're the windshield, the other night they're the bug."

In the wake of Buffalo's domination of us last night (yes, you can be dominated in a 2-0 game where one goal was into an empty net), LG77 delivered a playful "I told you so" in the comments. Amen, sister. You tried to tell us, you really did. Let's turn to some other childish taunts (not that I'm calling LG childish, you understand) to try and sort this one out.

My dad's better than your dad - All credit to Lindy Ruff who came up with some sort of perfect road game plan that gave the Habs maybe one legitimate scoring chance all night. It was based on tight 5-man D and limiting the opposition's good chances and taking advantage of your opponent's mistakes. Just like The System! And it worked. CHokula's game plan consisted of, uh, hmm, trying not to make a mistake? I kept expecting the Habs to come out of the dressing room with some sort of change in the plan to get the offense going. Aside from a line change in the 3rd to the reappearance of the Giant Mexican Squid, nada. In-between period strategic adjustment is not CHokula's forte.

Liar, liar pants on fire - statistics LIE. Habs outshot the Sabres 31-24 in this game. That was no indication whatsoever of the play. Every shot the Habs had was from the outside, was seen by Miller and produced no second or third chances. I don't care what the shots say, Sabres owned this game. They had energy and desperation on their side. Habs had lethargy and complacency on their side. The one stat that didn't lie was penalties. Habs had 6, all by defensemen getting beat in their own zone and needing to trip, hook, or interfere to try and catch up. Sure they killed them all, but they ruined any chance of getting into some kind of flow.

I know you are, but what am I? No way you can insult Carey, who kept us in the game throughout and once again shone while all those around him were meh-ing it up. You can't insult DDD either, who is doing his best to try to fill in for PleXXXe.

I'm rubber and you're glue. Anything you say bounces off me and sticks to you. - No matter how much we insult the Mexican's play, he doesn't seem to care. So here's a new tactic. You're playing great Gomez! Keep it up!

Nyaah nyaah nyaah nah nah nah (sp?) - my last childish dig at Anonymous because I am childish and I hereby declare this Don't Feed the Troll Day.

Am not! Are too! Habs suck! No they don't! Habs suck! No they don't! Let's hope this back and forth Jekyll and Hyde business gets us a win tomorrow night in Boston.

Childish? Moi? :P :P :P :P

I HEART you, 29.

Now can we get back to talking about the Habs instead of talking about the blog?

HabsFan29 said...

yes Habs, er, hockey! let's talk about it

the real problem now is PleXXXe's absence. It's moved Eller and DDD up one position in the depth chart where they don't belong. get well PleXXXe! Go You Fucking Dr. Mulder Go!

HabsFan29 said...

non-hockey related, but RIP Liz Taylor

Steve said...

@LG, having a feast at the Restoran, Cold Dish. I wish I could think of a clever way to describe this team, maybe something Elizabethan?

@29 I know you are but what am I, always my favorite.

Mex has style, has there ever been a player like him in Montreal history?
Kovy could be a heartbreaker, but every now and then he flashed some boobs. Mex has been a skating Burka all year, no ankle, no wrist, just a pair of dull eyes floating around avoiding contact.

Steve said...

@GG wow this blog moves faster than CNN

wah wah wah

I want my mommy - I mean, I want Gomez to score a goal. soon. sometime. ever.

Kmaxx said...

And lastly...say what you will about anyone and everyone who comments on this blog - but you cannot ever again say that LG doesn't know her shit.

I watched until the end of the second then popped back to read the comments. I saw iRiRi and 29 post at about 9 o'clock that we were getting shut out and thought -"Fucking LG (no offense) - she called this didn't she" - then watched the rest of the period. I was blown away to see they outshot the Sabres in the second, given that most of the period looked like the Sabres had a power play, and decided that you guys know enough about shit not to make myself stay up until 2.am proving you right. Part of me prayed you would be wrong as I lay me down to sleep but the remainder of me knew I would awake to a fright. A low and behold I did. "Bollocks" i said to myself as I collected my BB from the charger, checked SCORE for the score and headed off to work. Luckily my new boss (from fuckin' boston!) would not be around today so I was not going to have that shit to endure. So now I am praying that LG truly does know her shit because boston is up next and by her way of thinking, the Habs will kick some fuckin' useless boston ass - which they better...

Chester said...

See the picture at Faceoff. Looks like DD is the new AK.

Boob Gainey said...

I don't agree that we sucked.


We had 3-4 scoring chances, and they had 3-4 scoring chances. One of theirs went in.

We were missing an entire line, and 3/4 of our centres were rookies.

HabsFan29 said...

Boob I agree I don't think we sucked as badly as my hyperbolic review would have you believe. And I agree we were missing a bunch of forwards. But the game was not even. I remember maybe 5 minutes total of sustained pressure from us

Steve said...

Now that we are Shipping down to Boston and should find our legs (Mex gets a wooden one of course) ,given that Wash smoked Philty, its a clear path to first place, and Eastern Champs is very doable

Kmaxx said...

@Boob - the wife looked over during the game (sometime during the 2nd I think) - she's a Brit and knows less about hockey than most - but she commented - "Have the Montreal team had a man sent off like in Football? They don't seem to be able to get the puck" - I had to agree however it was 5 on 5...what 29 said - we didn't spend much time in their end at all.

lawyergirl77 said...

@Boob - it's not so much the fact that we lost as it is the way we played the game. Textbook definition of "meh".

That's what I don't understand about this team - they come out, guns ablazin' one game... and then they rest on their laurels (or, to use the poetic French equivalent: Ils s'asseoient sur leur steak) and don't even try.

It's fuckin' weird to me and smacks of a system failure to have such a marked difference from one game to the next.

Steve said...

We sucked, the game sucked, it was system vs system, and my Dad is better than your Dad fit perfectly. The team was not vastly different that the one that made the wild look like Junior B. So its a good occasion to beat up on Chocula. As 29 says he could have adapted, I would have put together my 5 best players, and tried for some goals, instead he went "oh you think you can play it safe Ruff, well I can play it safer, my safer is better than your safer" Safe is for losers.

Le Douze said...

I thought nos boys looked really pretty fucking good until, say, the first commercial break, or maybe even the 10 minute mark. After that, not so much. A few good individual efforts here and there undone by the (more frequent than usual?) brain farts. An ice surface definitely tilted down toward TFS. Not disastrous, but not too strong.

Sigh. Even PFK looked a bit inconsistent, with flashes of briliance alternating with flashes of ... not brilliance. Even AK managed to make his pretty good looking game come undone in the last minute.

McPhee said...

I can't wait for Mexican to miss a couple of games so that everyone is reminded that taking the puck all the way behind the opposition's net is so much better than dumping it in. For 20. Fucking. Years.

You will all miss him and it'll surprise you.

I don't feel tomorrow's game. I think we are going to be destroyed and everyone is going to go nuts, calling two losses in a row a tailspin and what not. Meh.

We're doing great, things are looking up, PleXXXe in the lineup changes everything, rest TFS more than during trainings for Fuck's sake, we rule, you know the drill.

lawyergirl77 said...

@McPhee - COULD NOT AGREE MORE about the dump-ins!! Makes me batshit crazy, especially when we dump the puck in for a line change. To me, that should count automatically as a turnover. It's one of the parts I loathe the most about The System.

Problem with Gomer - yes, he brings up the puck (sometimes). But more often than not he's offside. And when he's not, his pass after Crossing the blue line is, to put it charitably, brain dead.

Steve said...

@McPhee, hope your wrong, love your picture, I always liked McPhee, he reminded me of BJ on Mash.

To have Mex sit out a game, wow thats an experiment that gonna win a Nobel prize in Chemistry. One thing everyone will agree with, is that Mex play as well this year in the playoffs as he did last year, and what the fuck is wrong with him.

Curtis said...

Go Leafs Go!

Steve said...

Thats one of the most frustrating aspects of Mex's game, he carries it in and turns it over. Tits can get open, and his shot is killer, the whole game plan should be to get tits open and puck on his stick.(Calgary traded away Brett Hull cause all he could do was score) Its also frustrating that Montreal probably due to smurf size has a sub par cycle game. So they dump it in and dont chase, and dont cycle, and dont score. If we were not a whisker away from first place it would be even more annoying.

iRiRi said...

Don't worry, guys. They had a team meeting after practice with Gill(!) being one of the more vocal ones. We're good.

Anonymous said...

Please stop referring to Scott Gomez as "The Mexican". He is of mixed origins (Mexican and Columbian) but more importantly, he is American.

Thank you

DainersHubris said...

Was at the game last night - my first since Jan 4/10, when the Sabres won 1-0. So I was ecstatic to see the empty-netter last night. The game plan was clearly chip-and-chase, but nobody wanted to hit a Sabre, and most of the dump-ins didn't even make it past the circles.
@McPhee - I'd agree that a Gomez rush is preferable to a dump-in, but at this stage, I much prefer a Subban rush, for one simple reason. 9 times out of 10, Gomez makes his "move" a stride or two inside the blue line, whereas PK usually tries to make it to the corner. A pass from the corner at least might hit a body and turn into a chance. A (Gomez) pass from the circles usually hits an opponent and quickly goes back the other way. And be honest - when was the last time you saw Gomez in the corner?
Oh yeah, profanity. Fuck that fucking fuck Miller. Couldn't have let a dribbler in five-hole a la Golden Goal? You sucky silver shit.

Steve said...

Can we stop calling the Swedes Chicken, Chicken is totally French Canadian.

Curtis said...

The only reason I'm kinda glad buffalo won is to keep the Hurricanes and Eric Cole out of the playoffs.

I hate that guy. He always kills us.

Steve said...

I may be a minority, not like a Mexican American, but in the wish that the Laffs make the playoffs. With one cavet, they play Montreal in the first round. That would be awesome, totally. Secondly if they make the playoffs it hurts Buttmans grand scheme to have Toronto act as Bostons farm team.

Habsfan10 said...

Okay, so Mexican is American. Or, as we sometimes say here in Canada, Americans are Upper Mexicans. Since Gionta, Gill, Pacioretty, Gomez and others are all Upper Mexicans, that might get confusing ... so I say we call Gomez "Mexican". That should clear things up.

Steve said...

The Flying Upper and Lower Mexicans with Tits, Squid and Chicken.

In short the family Fabaceae, with other nibbleables.

the Maritimer said...

I agree the Habs hads no mojo last night as moeman said last night they shot their wad in Minny Sunday. However let's give some props to the Sabres. They fucking needed that game probably moreso than Montreal. Lindy Ruff out coaches Chokula most of the time anyway. Give the opposition some credit. They showed up. Still it was one lousy deflection that beat TFS. Could have gone either way. Hey! Here's a novel concept. There are three players on the Habs who are paid $18 million big ones to score goals or at least set them up (I'm looking at you Gomez). Score some fucking goals!!!! You've been shut out 7 fucking games this year! I can remember when they would get shut out once in a fucking decade. GO TO THE FUCKING NET WITH THE PUCK ONCE IN A WHILE!!! THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE PAYIN YOU MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO DO!! Fuck, may as well bring back Samsonov and watch him skate in circles in the offensive zone.

I got nuthin' else.

lawyergirl77 said...

Or, how about this: calling him "The Mexican" is a nickname. One that Gomer even gave himself during some of those "Get to know your Habs" segments.

If anything, he's getting off easy with that one. It's why I've been calling him Gomer for the past few weeks. "The Mexican" = gives connotations of badass mofo (like Machete, or even the honey badger).

So, all this to say that maybe we should be calling him Gomer, given the way he's been playing lately... You may be onto something there, Anon!

To right you are LG77. And we would call them goobacks down here.

I knew Gomer (Pyle),in fact I was a token Canadian at his 5oth, Gomer is a friend of mine, and the Mexican he is no Gomer.

Gomez is The Mexican't.
Just ask the folks on l'antichambre.

They call me Gomer But I prefer love machine.

I wonder if the Goat would trade Large Breasts and CHicken for Tyler Ennis and Nathan Gerbe?

HabsFan29 said...

@Chester - I remember when we signed the Mexican American and we had a guest poster from a Rangers blog write up a preview. he said they called him Mexican't all the time. i guess we know why now

Steve said...

@Anon 3:20, what school did you go to, I cant believe they failed to diagnose your reading comprehension challenge.

"Or, how about this: calling him "The Mexican" is a nickname. One that Gomer even gave himself during some of those "Get to know your Habs" segments."

There is no room on this site for stupid, immature inane comments, I have already filled that slot.

lawyergirl77 said...

@Anon at 3:20 - Never claimed to have made up that nickname. Only that I prefer it right now because I think it fits him better given his style of play of late.

Have I mentioned lately how much I DESPERATELY hope that both he and Squid get their shit together for the playoffs?

moeman said...

Bring on da Bs and Cornelius.

Steve said...

@Chester - thanks for the info, thats the kind of stuff thats to easily overlooked, The Mexican't LOL

Mexican't starring Brad Pitt, Salma Hayek and Scott Gomez

Plot Summary. Mr Buttman's runs out of US cities where Hockey can fail. So he gets Salma Hayek's billionaire husband to put a team in Mexico. She hires Scott Gomez, and immediately qualifies for Saint Hood as all of Montreal testify "its a miracle". Soon Selma realizes he is The Mexican't. Her misery leads her husband to put out a contract. Brad Pitt is hired to find an ancient gun, which is not on the gun registry. I will not ruin the ending.

Habsfan10 said...

If The Mexican('t)/Gomer, Gionta and Cammy don't get their shit together soon, I'm gonna start calling them Lehman Brothers, since they've stolen a shit load of money from the rich and pissed off thousands of people doing it.

Anonymous said...

@lawyergirl77...I have lost faith in Squid. And, if I may say, after watching the Nos Canadiens segment on him, I'm even barfing up more. The guy is so full of himself, a masseuse from Toronto, his own massage table with his name on it, loads of trophies hanging around and he brings us to his appointments he has for his investments. Barf. The guy is totally into marketing himself and his effort to learn French and to broadcast it loud and clear was his effort to manipulate a move to wear the C shirt. He bugs me the most. Gomez, meh. Remember that he's a playmaker, and really not that far off from his points from the previous years. Although he is infuriating to watch but also we are really on him and watch every single move he makes and blow it up to exaggerated proportions. My take anyway.

So c'mon Squid, shake a tentacle.

Steve said...

Its way to soon to put the Squid on the barbie. He has been injured, but he is not far off last years point pace, and only 10 goals away from equaling last year. He was an absolute Jedi Knight last year on a team that could not feel the force if they where getting a beating from La Sûreté.

lawyergirl77 said...

@Anon 4:09 (JESUS HOW IS IT ALREADY PAST 4:00??)

I thought I was the only one who didn't like Squid after that Nos Canadiens feature!! Seriously, I thought it made him look like an OCD narcissist who is desperate to be loved. And love to him = the C on his CH jersey. I understand why he's loved by the media (it's reciprocal) and why he's not exactly loved in the locker room (and why he and PK have gravitated towards each other). Feh.

I also completely agree with your take on Gomer (should I be freaked out by this??) I don't think his salary is his fault. (what? Was he supposed to say: "No Mr. Sather, I don't want to be rich beyond my wildest dreams of avarice after a successful rookie season that I will likely never replicate again?")

But, that being said, my biggest problem with him is that his playmaking has sucked lately too. He's making really questionable decisions out there in terms of passing. And when he shoots, well, the shot is either WAY high and wide or it hits the goalie in the logo. Either way - very low percentage shots, unless you're shooting against a noving net at the Carnival net or at the Invisible Girl.

Steve said...

@lawyergirl an OCD narcissist, yeah he is from Toronto.

moeman said...

Injuries aside the issue with Squid is his seemingly meh attitude this season. Hope he cranks it up in the playoffs.

Habsfan10 said...

Squid was a 34 goal, 80 point man in LA and got traded. After a 40 goal year in talent-starved Calgary they let him walk. Does he rub people the wrong way? He's been dogged by that rumour before.

HabsFan29 said...

13 goals in the playoffs last year guys. let's not throw Squid to the fishes yet

Anonymous said...

Me again...re:squid.

Have you ever met anyone who constantly talks about him/herself? Says "I" about five times in a sentence? Doesn't ask how you are? Takes and takes and doesn't give? I bet that's Squid. Maybe a little heavy-handed on him granted I never met him, but he really gives me that impression. A self-promoting kinda guy. But beyond that, the taker can't carry a puck across the blue line for the life of him. He better show up for the playoffs, or squid will be fried. I'd love to be a fly on the dressing room wall, but I think I got a pretty good handle with what goes on just by looking at them on the rink. The Nos Canadiens helps a lot too. Spacek comes across as the most sincere guy. He's the guy I wanna share a beer with. (But I'd wipe the bottle first).

moeman said...

29 knows, plus Squid could be FHFer Steve.

Anonymous said...

Oh and, wanted to say about Squid after watching Nos Canadiens, when he sat down with his investment guy, partner guy, who ever he was guy and they layed out the blue print for a gym he wants to build in TO, if I was there I would have puked all over it. I want a hockey player, god-dammit! Not an investor that's forcing me to watch how he saves/makes money. I totally, totally got turned off from that and I'm a fucking woman!!!

And while I'm ranting, that Anne Marie woman, she's gotta go. Just too "fake happy" and tries so innocently to get down to a "yo, I'm your friend, dude, and you can be cool with me...".

I want her job. I would rock.

Steve said...

@Moeman very deductive reasoning, and its a bitch to text and shoot pucks at the same time, you really need the force for that.

dwgs said...

If you want to find out who the decent human beings on the team are, see how they are with kids. I've been bringing my boys to the blood drive with me the last few years. The only two who have made my kids laugh and feel at ease are Muller (who was freakin' amazing, teasing my then 6 year old) and Spacek, who was really nice. Worst prize were the Bros. Kostitsyn who couldn't manage so much as a 'hello' for a freakin' five year old with stars in his eyes and (coincidentally) his practice jersey with a '46' on the back.

moeman said...

Steve might be Squid's father.

Steve said...

Unless they are a total jerk off the ice, I really dont care.Squids superego, may be a challenge for his ID. Squid is a bit quirky for sure, but as long as he exercises his one timer when needed, I would take him even if he was eccentric.

All signs indicate the dressing room is tres beau, even The Mexican't is not causing friction, so everyone just stop, stop channeling Sigmund Freund.

Dammit, this is the FHF, not psychobiology today.

@dwgs - dont blame the Belarussians, they have probably never seen children not working in a mine before.

timafurry said...

!!! Go Habs Go !!!

iRiRi said...

Totally agree on Squid's Nos Canadiens episode. While the show usually makes me like the player in question even more, Squid's made me question why I liked him in the first place. He came off as very self-absorbed.

Anyone hear Dr. Recchi's comments about Patches?

"Well he obviously does have a fractured vertebrae, but the concussion was obviously really a non-factor."
"Maybe a day he felt it, and then he was fine."
"I believe yeah, they were trying to get Zdeno suspended and they embellished it a little bit."
"They [concussion doctors? The Canadiens?] were trying to do what they could to get him suspended."

God, I hope the Habs answer this garbage with a huge W on the ice tomorrow.

the Maritimer said...

I posted earlier that Squid, Gio and Mexican't are the core that Gainey assembled and are being paid large to produce some offense. If they don't step it up soon, the playoff run won't be long. Remember, 3 goose eggs thrown at them out of 5 games against the Philthy's last spring, by a third string goalie no less.

Steve said...

@Maritimer excellent relevant point.

It all comes back to Chocula, if the brakes are on the whole time how fast can the car move with the pedal to the metal.

The Habs are not a run and gun team. Chicago can do it, Vancouver maybe, then its down to the best trap. However the risk of losing pancakes the thrill of winning. With the best goalie in the NHL why dont the Canadians try scoring more goals than waiting for a lucky bounce.

moeman said...

Fuck you recchi.

Steve said...

You sometimes wonder why Montreal is the Afghanistan of the NHL. Its no secret, we have religion, we have tradition, we do not need the thrill of death or even the conclusion of victory to enjoy a hockey game. Mr Buttman and that fucking guy who never even went to a hockey game before him are selling a product they dont understand, or in any small way appreciate. The NBA is burning out, and it is a simplistic GAY sport. No priest of hockey would bless the trap or even allow a confession from such a devilish move. Hockey, Canadian fucking hockey will survive, its a dark period, but the black swans circling the global economy will crystallizes a game that is pure magic. Maybe in this magical world the Mexican't will find redemption.

moeman said...

... and mcsplooge will, constantly, remind us that recchi is one of the game's most honourable players. Shove it up your bruin ass recchi and while you're at it ask Marc Savard if he agrees with you, you fuck.

recchi

I admire he has made his place in the NHL approaching 40. But of all the dickwad stupid things any hockey player has ever said, his will go down in the infamy of infinity.

swarkles said...

Well last time a Bruins player talked shit before a game the Habs won and Patches got hurt. Tomorrow I'm just hoping the Habs win with no more injuries for the love of god.

Speaking of recchi...has anybody been on puck daddy recently? Is it just me or is it permanent bitch about the Habs and call the fans pansies day or something? The comments over there are making the Caps fans I know around here seem knowledgeable and well spoken...

It simply blows my mind that a person would repeatedly type out well thought-out responses using obvious hockey smarts but will not type in a few characters into the name field in order to identify himself. I even trained a surly troll to do it. Am I insane?

Steve said...

Its all over boys our purpose has been rendered meaningless, its not fair, I produced a heck of lot outside the body, everyone should just know that.

And I gotta put some of the blame on womans hockey.

Orangeman said...

My thoughts on the Mexican/American (aka The Other Useless Alaskan*) are well known here, as they are in several national publications, bathroom walls and courts of law. I'm surprised to hear about Squid, but at the end of the day I'd cheer on Gadhafi if he potted a couple for the CH. He'd probably get less criticism than PK from CBC, too.

*I did think that one up on my own, thankyouverymuch. I had been waiting for him to lay down a thundering check on a player of Russian descent so I can use "HE SAW THAT RUSSIAN FROM HIS HOUSE!" but I've accepted that will likely not occur. Then I hoped for a nice pass to Markov or maybe even Tits, but that chance passed. I've even been waiting for him to blow one past a Russian goalie although it would make less sense and is less likely.

The point is that while his Mexican heritage is someone misleading in relation to his on ice performance, I think I can work this Alaskan angle pretty well. But I might need Tina Fey to do another SNL sketch to make it topical again. And to wear short skirts and such.

Orangeman said...

*somewhat misleading

Steve said...

@Orangeman - essentially you are saying the Reform Party has promised The Mexican't a senate seat.

Steve said...

The Mexican't aka the poutine candidate.

Steve said...

The Poutine Canditate

First reform party royalty Glen Sather signs him to an unbelievable contract. I dont want to get into the details of how Gainey was pressured, but his history of personal tragedy is public. . Then he fucking pisses off everyone in Quebec and hockey lovers everywhere. Watch as he crushes any chance of Quebec City getting a NHL team to play in ther public space.

Watch as his robotic effort is an anvil the Habs must carry all the way to the cup.

Quebec never expected the poutine candidate!

TSN has been promoting a bloodbath for tomorrow night. They want somebody to go after Fuckface Chara. Right. If DDD stands on Gionta's shoulders he could look him in the eye but balance would be a problem. They have no one. Nobody does. Hopefully, no Hab will be taken off on a stretcher. Speed is the only answer. And the System.

@Steve, I'm depressed about being obsolete.

I think recchi has a point. We did try to get the police involved, when honestly, it was maybe negligence from the league. We really should have angled boards.

It wasn't chara's fault.

You're an asshole, cue.

sensible anonymous said...

The bruins fan is back.

Recchi is a fucking moron.

Don't get me wrong, I liked the guy even before he was a Bruins player. But even if that was his opinion, to voice is on the radio?? right before the big game?? Jesus fucking Christ, Recchi.

After the Cooke shit-show, this game had at least a chance of being a real hockey game - focused on playing great hockey for revenge. Now Recchi just went and pissed everyone off left right and center and its going to be a ridiculous shit-show. Its not who's going to be hurt - its how many. What a fucking waste. Shut your damn mouth and skate. Amazed that so many of you are actually offended by what was said and not the intention behind it - which is actually worse. Patches himself said that he didn't have a bad concussion - and that in effect his GM basically lied. That's not up for contention. I'm just mad that this game doesn't even have a chance of being good hockey anymore.

Orangeman said...

Listen Man Without A Name, you've proved my point. We're all anonymous on the internet. Let's skip over the existential crisis over identity, shall we.

I just heard Recchi. What a disturbing human being. I'm not just saying that because he's a Bruin. To be so cavalier about a young man's health is simply disgusting. Anytime you're hit unconcious you have a concussion, that's a fact. It was the Bruins who were saying the severity of Patches' injury shouldn't influence suspension, but now he's saying that because it wasn't severe (in his 'medical expertise') the hit was ok? What a disgraceful human being. To look at someone in pain, someone who's life will never be the same, and to dismiss it so easily. Are hockey players that dehumanized now? It's truly sickening.

I ask myself, doesn't this qualify as damaging the integrity of the game? Accusing another team's medical staff of faking injuries with no proof? If GMs get fined for questioning the impartiality of officals, why not fine a guy who openly denies the opions of medical professionals when it has such an effect on the public perception of the game?

Recchi's a sick fuck. Apparently you turn stupid when you become a Bruin. Sorry that fucktard ever wore the CH. Asshole.

He forgot the part about "seeing a movie" was a WEEK AFTER Chara nearly killed him. Maybe, just MAYBE, some people have harder heads than Savard and Bergeron? What's he supposed to do? Stay in bed forever? Pacioretty would be PLAYING if he didn't have a fucking broken neck.

Now I see where Marchand gets it. (The only "brash" rookie who should be called out for his constant crap on ice and off).

A thousand curses on you, Recchi. A thousand curses on your shit team. May you never ever ever touch the Stanley Cup ever again. I got a few Romanian gypsy curses heading their way.

Also TSN uses a clip of The Incident (the point of impact, actually) in their ad for tomorrow's game. Sick fucks.

Boston : just when you thought they were done shitting themselves, they eat their own shit and throw up everywhere.

PK Subban : yeah I'd rather have Bobby Orr on my team than Gomez

Cammalleri : boy is it time playoffs start? Who is it next you lynchmob regulars want to kick off our team? Price? No that was last year this year he's not on your hate-radar? Plekanec? No that was three years ago when he was slumping, now he's amazing according to you.

The system : produced a solid clinch 10 games before the end of the season (99.5%, or whatever it is, is clinching or you need intermediate math classes),in the nhl with Hamilton. Who even really cares about "all these guys" that are injured? Don't you all just turn on the tv and expect a solid performance by whoever is dressed?

Gomez : gee, I'm so sorry what he does with the puck once he's taken it from behind our net to behind the opposition's net doesn't meet the expectations you have for a player who takes it end to end. You're right, demand more from your flying center. Maybe Carolina will let us have Staal, maybe TB will trade Stamkos, or maybe we can pay Lecavalier untill 2050, or let's get Brad Richards for 8 millilon, yeah, we'd really get less angry for 20 goals you know, for 8 million dollars, or let's get...how many centers do you think there are out there? Have you not heard this conversation before : "GM1: hey, GM2, I'd really like to have your superstar center on my team. GM2: yeah, me too. oh wait, I do have him on my team! laters..."

I remember distinctly wishing we had a gomez gionta first line back in the day, and here they are, in their prime. That means three more years of their best years. Yes, gomez is fucking up with the puck more than usual this year, yes he is sucking in gomez terms. but, fuck, he's our superstar center, too bad he's sucking but booing him and trashing him is not going to help him at all, and since he's not going anywhere the result is the Habs take it on the chin when we boo one of our own in our own house just before the playoffs (and we are at that point, you can tell the fans are about to boo him like brisebois).

Playoffs: This team is still emotionally in last year's playoffs. they approached this regular season as that large annoyance they had to deal with to get another crack at the cup, and they did it with style. When time comes the whole team is going to turn around: the amazing rookies who fueled our great regular season will suddenly become very quiet and our embattled veterans wil take the lead, all aligning perfectly for an amazing playoff run.

Winning (Henceforth known as Charlie-Sheen-ing or CSI) : has anyone noticed that the Habs won every important game this season? Beat every team ahead of them or of any relevance in the west? Won all those randomly-determined "must-win" games, to the point that none of the next 10 games matter in the least? Well, I certainly did. I'm not scared of the playoffs at all.

Laffs : Double incentive for them to make the playoffs. 1.It contributes to making burkeston suck and 2.they're the only team I would trust in 8th place to upset the phucktards (who suddenly seem so palatable compared to burkestolipitecus primitivus in the shit and piss uniforms out there).
