The Morning Skate for Wednesday, April 20th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of a Men Without Hats reunion...
  • Dave Bolland came back from a concussion and scored 1G 3A and LOOOOOUUUU shat the bed. Result: Hawks 7, Nucks 2 and some minor signs of life for the Hawks;
  • The Sharks were down by 4 goals to the Kings but stormed all the way back and Devin Setoguchi (who? man, we should watch the West once in a while) scored in OT to give the Sharks a 6-5 win and a 2-1 series lead;
  • The NHL signs a 10-year, $2 billion deal to continue on NBC and Versus. TMS' opinion is that we live in Canada so we don't give a fuck;
  • Your obvious headline of the day: First goal crucial in Habs-Bruins series;
  • The Calder finalists do not include PFK. Racist bastards;
  • The NHL Wheel of Justice handed out a couple of token suspensions;
  • Well that Vinny Damphousse domestic abuse business took a strange turn as his (estranged) wife was charged with assaulting him.
You know, normally we'd be pissed about this two-days off thing, but it's for a Rush show and we simply can't be angry at the greatest band not in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. What the hell, let's play some Rush. Rock on.

Before "The Trailer Park Boys" went off the air, Bubbles was as popular as Sidney Crosby in Halifax. Scary stuff.

Steve said...

Trailer park boys, rule. Wish it was Thursday already. As long as Nucks win dont care about other series, might as well be the Leafs playing the Leafs.

Big 420 protest today, at the corner of Hwy 420 and Victoria avenue, wish I knew what time it was starting?

TV deal bad news for Canada, thats $7 million a year for every team in Buttmans hopeless southern strategy.

Never a Rush fan, great group but Getty Lee not my cup of tea.

bea.habs.fan said...

took an obligatory mourning day off yesterday from all things Habs but was as guilty as everyone else on this site for not respecting THE ROUTINE.
I think I may have to go back to Israel where I was last year during the 'miracle' Cup run. (got abck in time to watcj them loose to the PHucktards).

(@Steve teh zombie movie = La horde ("the Horde" - in English))

Steve said...

@bea.habs.fan thanks

Hadulf said...

All I have to say is, I don't like Rush. I know, am I really Canadian???

Anywho...GYFCHG!

Jemmer said...

I was fine with waiting two days for the next game when it looked like I was gonna score company tickets to Rush, but some fucker pulled rank on me.

So, since I have free time tonight, does anyone have extra tickets to the Damphousse-Henderson fight? I like blood.

Bring it!

lawyergirl77 said...

@Jemmer - can't believe you're not at the top of the food chain where you work.

We can no longer be friends. I don't associate with the proletariat

Chester said...

Greatest R&R band not in the hall has to be Little Feat / Lowel George. What a fucking tragedy that is. I mean he died from a drug overdose and everything.
Go Habs

Steve said...

@Chester I am willin to agree!
Give me reds whites and wine and I will do anything.

Boob Gainey said...

After they play Safety Dance and Pop Goes The World, what happens next at a Men Without Hats concert? Do they go to the trouble of playing the other songs?

GoldenGirl11 said...

Hate Rush. Love Geddy though. I hope the matzo doesn't kick in while he's on stage tonight. Could be an awkward silence while he's in the bathroom for an hour or so.

Chester said...

@ Steve
Feat Fans are everywhere and they look normal ...

Mr. natural said...

@Steve: No tickets for you but the Mr. n 1000 bottle wine cellar proect is underway....

NO YOU CAN'T ALL COME OVER FOR FREE SAMPLES!

Kmaxx said...

Went to a Rush concert (not by choice) at the ML Gardens back in the late 80's - had to be the most boring event I ever saw. We had floor seats but it didn't matter as we were not allowed to stand up. Should have stayed home.

Not Geoff Molson said...

GYMFHG!

WV - Appropriate for the Trailer Park Boys and Steve's 420 comment above - "sesse"

Steve said...

@Kmaxx you must have had the wrong prescription.

foo said...

Wow! I never knew that Garrison Keillor was in Rush! Aren't those guys leaf fans? Can they still be great?

So what's a Flyer troll doing on your site? I come for the Bruin hate! And stay for the four questions.
Go Habs!

Go "Phucktards!"

Steve said...

@Foo its PHucktards!

Anonymous said...

@ Steve, thank you for pointing that out!

GYMFHG!

foo said...

Thx for correcting my spelling error. I guess Quebec English is as quirky as Quebec French.

JimT said...

Chris Kelley is back in Boston getting his face checked for a broken bone. I wonder when Geoff Molson's next open letter on player safety is going to hit the Montreal papers?

Steve said...

@JimT I heard Neely has a mean erection, Kelley should keep his face above the desk.

moeman said...

Happy 420 FHFers.

Steve said...

@FHF a little disappointed TMS did not express a 420 sentiment.

JimT said...

Steve, Neely's boner sounds like a dangerous weapon, perhaps Mr. Molson should look into it.

Steve said...

Jim T- not on 420, Mr Molson would cut off his package and make a bong out of it.

moeman said...

Passed over?

Steve said...

@Moeman its God squad World Police

McPhee said...

Next one is for all the marbles. FoCHus!!!!

Steve said...

@McPhee, its not game day so its okay to loosen up, then fire like a rail gun down on the Bruins CHakra.

Steve said...

I have to close this day off, with a puff. The Bruins are the child of Harry Sinden, and considering his longevity, tru blood. They screwed Bobby Orr, I say again, they screwed Bobby Orr. Some may say the Patrick Roy trade mitagtees this, and I would agree the single most stupid ego trade in the history of the NHL was that one. In summary the Bruins suck worse than the Roy trade.

Mr. natural said...

Man, between my computer skills, ability to navigate the intertoobs, my typing skills and knowledge of current events I am basically retarded.

So 420 has something to do with Pot and it's like international Pot day, PHuck I am going down to the wine cellar, my illegal drug days are way behind me.

Look, we all learned a hard lesson last game and will toe the line tomorrow night as far as dress codes, rituals, meth, booze etc goes.

I am feeling great about tomorrow and have no doubt that we will spank these Bruins.

I will buy the first round of scotch at Hurley's after we beat the Broonz but NO $3000 bottles please (yes I'm looking at you LG77).

I'm PHucken' pumped...GYFHG!!

Eat Shit Broonz.

Die PHucktards die!

Go Sabres.

HabsFan29 said...

whoaaaaaaa, it's 420? totally spaced on that

Steve said...

@Mr. Natural, you posted that the LSD of today is like aspirin. The problem is these UTES can not handle the truth. I have two kids a couple of decades old soon. They could not handle window pane. Why not? Cause the world we live in is all about fear. I disagree, the world is all about having fun. Damm those flashbacks.

Secondly I disagree the pot today is so strong. Yeah there is coma shit out there, but thats not strong thats stupid, the laughing stuff will come back some day, and I will be driving that train,

Steve said...

@29 for missing a 420 promo, you should do a whole week of new season of Breaking Bad promos.

Mr. natural said...

LOL Window pane, haven't hear that in 35 years +.

How 'bout orange double barrel, white clinical?

Steve, don't know about that pot though, tried some shit several times a few years back and it was PHucken' wacky! Ya it was actually more than what you are looking for (at least my generation), rather than a mellow feel good buzz, you are basically paralyzed!

I was a hash man in my day.

We gotta get that intervention of yours going.

BTW I have a 30 and a 25 yr old.

Both Habs fans to the MAX!

GYMFHG!

Steve said...

Has anybody else noticed I answer my own posts. Mental Masturbation, its worse than the first kind.

I am talking about fear. I have never been afraid while I was drunk or stoned. So in my 50 plus years of experience doing all kinds of drunken stoned things in sketchy neighbor hoods and taunting the locals I was never done nothing.

True story, dateline OSAKA, yes Japan. I was hiring a expert, and he took me to a local bar that was 100% African American. I was flirted withall the B girls in my laid back way. Suddenly I was surronuded by a mob of angry Black Men, I said wo bro, you ho homebo.
Did not improve the situation at all. Turns out, they had no worries about me scoring with the ladies, they called me on the carpet for dissing NYC.
I learned a lot about international relations with Africa from that and you should as well.

Steve said...

@Mr Natural,
So the problem the pot today is so strong, well hash boy what is hash if not the pot today.

True Story, I went to Western, a University that has turned out an impressive group of peter pan party animals. So on my floor I have Piere Bertons son, and more than one person who took high school in Switzerland. And Jews, all kinds of Jews, Kosher Jews who would only smoke hash from the Bekka valley cause they considered it part of Israel. When I moved off campus they were my roommates cause they were both awesome and they had cars.

So one of the kids was alledgedl he son of mr ford Europe, and allegedly became the head of Ford at one time. He had a key to the kingdom, backstage passes to everything he was like Justin Bieber without an audience. There would be nobody amongst the 50 people on that floor who would have a bad word to say about that guy.

Western on the other hand did not feel the same way. He comes back from Chritmas with a block of hash the size of a large car battery. He checks in with Western and they say he has 30 days to leave residence. He woke up all the stoners on the floor for the next 30 days with a supertoke. And Gilbert if you happen to read this, I love you bro!

moeman said...

Coincidence betwixt day 420 and Fuckface bettman announcing feenixt is still a hockey town?

moeman said...

What the fuck do marek and moronson add?

Steve said...

never going to bare my soul again.
Next segamant was the girl from Israel, cousin of my roommate who broke my heart, even after I agreed to open circumcision surgery.
Gyfhg

Steve said...

Your never gonna learn what happened after my roommate did some tongue on my now wife, when I was not there.

Steve said...

Okay just a hint, it drove me to Queens where a Queen named the Sloop John B seduced me with his beautiful mouth, now even better with mega caps sealed in supergrip I see. That did not end well when he insisted on Reciprocity. I got out of that by saying I was a free trader.

Steve said...

Lets go back to the super hot cousin from Isreal, so I confront her with a scalpel in one hand and my meat in the other, saying for you babe I will cut off a a half a pound of useless humpback. To this day I cant understand why she called the police.

Steve said...

As you have probably guessed this little misunderstanding lead to my roommate trying to perform a tonsuletimy on my now wife. After that it has pretty well been in the words of Kurt Von Gut Jr, and so it goes, and so it goes, and go you fucking habs go.

the Maritimer said...

@Steve, I just checked in to find some serious fucking flashbacks, regarding your post @ 9:19...I laughed so hard I think I now have a sports hernia.

Everybody get your shit together tomorrow pre-game. We don't need any more superstition foul-ups.

Moey said...

Purple pyramid. Heh. Brings back memories of not being able to remember except I've never seen the early morning dew glistening on the grass look so beautiful. There was every color in the rainbow, it was like a million tiny little perfect diamonds shining in the sunlight. *sigh*


But I digress. Go Rags Go. I'm willing to lose points on the pool just to get rid of the Caps.

Mr. natural said...

OK reading Steve's neverending deranged rants I have one for us all:

Ever come to and not know where the PHuck you are ?

I came to once and all I could see was open field and I was feeling a little freaked out, stood up trying to get my bearings turned around and there's an entire building 2 feet behind me. I walk around the building and lo I'm behind Vanier college in Ville St-lo (wasn't much back there in 1970-72).

GYFHG!

McPhee said...

The only thing I want loosened up is big shaved gorilla...

But I was talking to the Habs. We all know they get FHF on their iPhone 4 Turbo Alpha 3.

For the record, today's 420 is today's LSD.

Number31 said...

Love those no-duh headlines. Next is "bad goals in double-OT will really crush your soul"? See Tampa and New York.

I want a win tomorrow. GYFH!

jenn2624 said...

Hi, I've been following this blog for a long time (2-3 years) and I was a bit too intimidated to say anything until now- you guys seem a little too much cooler than I am :(

I wanted to apologize for not wearing my Habs jersey on Monday (that I got for my birthday, which is so far 2-0 for the playoffs), and also I think the real G-d, as opposed to the hockey gods, might have been a little upset that I was not being a very good Jew when I turned on the TV and watched the game on Monday night instead of finishing the seder!!

Sorry.

Jenn

PS I guess I should mention a bit about me... born Montrealer, grew up in Toronto. Went to McGill the past two years and now I'm transferring back to Toronto for various reasons...

THROW THE SNAKE TO WINNIPEG!
