Hockey! Pre-season! Players you've never heard of!

Yeah, this is about as recognizable as some of the Habs on the ice tonight

Tonight at 730 PM, from the Bell, on RDS, against Dallas. WOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Hockey motherfuckers! Too bad I have plans, because pre-season hockey is the best.

Players you've heard of who are in the game: Squid, Pleks, Tits, Cole (uh, nickname? did we figure that out yet?), Gremlin, Gill, TFS.

Players you've never heard of: Everyone else.

In honour of the first (sort of) game of the season, here's a good old fashioned stripper pic for ya. Stop your whining.

Nickname suggestion:

Break-neck bros for Erik Cole and Pacioretty.

Welp, gotta go. Happy to help.

Preseason hockey W00t!!!!!1!!! I'm so excited I don't know how I'm going to pay attention all day. It's been too long.

GYFHG! (Man, I missed typing that!)

the problem with life without hockey is that you get into these habits and you're busy on hockey nights (yeah even Saturdays)
it's been so long and I've changed providers - I don't know what channel RDS is on !!!!

Le Douze said...

Oh, yeah, hockey tonight! Umm, but like @bea, bad habits have intervened, so apparently it's my beer league team's turn for a rare Tuesday evening. Still, I'll be rooting in spirit.

FUCK YEAH...GYFAnonymousHG!

@Steve, your deduction skills must be amazing.

FINALEMENT!

Steve said...

@Hadulf yes I am like Sherlock Holmes only with a harder shot.

The Drew Doughty saga is a cautionary tale for the goat, lock up PFK and TFS this year.

Gremlin has made the team, who will be the other rookie, looking at all the mixed up letters on the net, I say Scrabble, he never tries to score and Chocula loves it.

Steve said...

It has nothing to do with hockey and I am sure NTTIAWWT.

soperman said...

This is great. I now work for Newfoundland but still physically sit in Nova Scotia. Not only can I spend my days reading FHF, but I can do it during meetings.

I hope they don't decide to use video conference.

Occupational profiles zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz........

Chester said...

So I'm readin the Toronto Sports Networks' write up about the thrasing that The Leaves gave The Senasnores and I read that Ron Wilson says that ... well you know any team would like to have three lines that can score .... and I'm thinkin that the Senasnores don't have three scoring lines .... so like wow ... ya unholy fuck .. this is the year of The Leaves .. gotta be .. ya ,. that's it .. is anybody actually awake in that city.

Steve said...

@Chester the sad thing is that Chocula wants three lines that dont score. His idea of a perfect season is to win everygame in a nothing nothing shootout.

Chester said...

I don't think Chocula's systam can take the excitement of Goal Scoring. It jolts him up a bit too much and that might lead to a facial expression or Heaven forbid an Emotional Response. These are all things bad Chez Chocula. Sad thig for him is that I think we are gonna put in quite few, I hope The Randys are up on their First Aid.

Blair Sheridan said...

Given the name and his age, I'd have to go with "Old Man Cole."

GYFkidsG!

juce said...

Just 1 1/2hrs till puck drop!

Moey said...

Some really important news, Dave Stubbs has a column on my boy, er Sheldon Souray tomorrow. *drools* Oops, sorry, let me wipe that up. I miss his laser on the point. Yeah, that's it.

iRiRi said...

7 minutes!!!

moeman said...

I may rag on RDS for its Séparatistes staff but bitCHes we got some fucking pre-season Habs hockey to watCH! Ice cream beckons...

Number31 said...

I need to get my dog a Habs sweater.

Moey said...

Exactly moe. I'll suffer it for pre-season but TSN (Habs) are broadcasting a lot of games this year. Outstanding.

iRiRi said...

Why the hell did I think it was a 7PM start? I just watched 30 minutes of RDS filler wondering when the game was gonna start. Clearly, I'm rusty.

moeman said...

Evelyne has a nice accent;

moeman said...

Classy remembrance Habs. Well done.

moeman said...

kevin pollock? Really? Thx for the punCH in the face NHL.

moeman said...

ouCH!

moeman said...

Aye yi yi!

iRiRi said...

CHill out!

moeman said...

I'm CHillin' out.

juce said...

what are they doing?
3 goals in 6min by Dallas. Fuck Ryder!

Number31 said...

Preseason ice cream?

moeman said...

@N31, yup, its in the very small lawyerly print and we still gotta hit 200. We. Can. Do. It!

moeman said...

Summer ain't over yet!

moeman said...

Colé!

iRiRi said...

Coooooooooooole!!!

Number31 said...

Yea. That felt good.

moeman said...

T i t s!

Number31 said...

Notice: AIM HIGH ON FUCKING RAYCROFT

HAHA Price got an assist.

iRiRi said...

W000t!!!

moeman said...

Wowitkalice!

Number31 said...

Krys Barch is a little bitch. Hits Trotter behind the play. Refs doing a fine job with this new safety thing.

Number31 said...

I spy the Swiss Misters on D chatting about the game.

moeman said...

Gotta say I am liking Marc Denis. Smart, acerbic, sarcastic, almost 29ish.

5-3, eesh.

Number31 said...

Except Marc Denis seems so awkward most of the time...

moeman said...

True N31, but even as a rookie Denis has some decent vocab, doesn't slur every other word and has yet to yip an Aye-yi-yi.

Anonymous said...

The more I watch, the less optimistic I get about this Tinordi fellow... he has exactly one play with the puck - flip it to center ice. He can't even get the Komisarek "pass it to the guy who can actually play" thing down pat. Gah.

Liking the European imports, though. Diaz and Weber look good together, and Gremlin can actually play (though I'm still itching for him to show that he might take up that long-vacant DOOM mantle).

iRiRi said...

Bonus: Denis is less creepy than Bouchard.

Number31 said...

Yes! Bonus! No Gargamel. Instead he TOOK THE JUNIORS AND MOVED THEM TO ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE! *hate*

moeman said...

iRiRi!!!

Bouchard's creepiness was his hair.

juce said...

I don't like his hair, reminds me of Tin Tin for some reason.

Number31 said...

Oh STFU RDS about Mickey Ribs. Yea, when a gumby-legged Hal Gill is the only regular d-man on the ice, it's EASY for his trio to score goals. What a concept.

moeman said...

150 to go!

(BTW, I just read some extremely fine print in my main page poster contract clause and it says my comments DO NOT count towards ice cream). I AM APPEALING!!

juce said...

Referring to Denis

moeman said...

N31, did you miss RDS' pre-game Ribsfest? The made him out to be the next Wayne Gretzky (including a jimmy carson ref.) with extra BBQ sauce.

juce said...

He couldn't be the same "mais oui" Marc Denis from radio? nah, too young.

iRiRi said...

As the RDSers would say, bon débarras!

Anonymous said...

2 hours on the horn with rogers to get rds temporarily because nhl centre ice doesn't carry this game. They can't tell me which other games they won't carry. Who knows, maybe I'll get no habs games. Thanks for letting me vent.

moeman said...

Still CHillin' over here and its just pre-season (but fuck does CHocula's 'system' still looks lost). Bring back Kirk!!! (I type that cuz I luvs me some Moey).

moeman said...

@juce, never heard Denis on the rad, might be the same, not sure.

Number31 said...

@moeman
I muted it quickly when they started the Mickey Ribs lovefest. Vomit city.

Number31 said...

And what sucks is we'll get the Mickey Ribs lovefest when they play the Stars for real. Thankfully we only see these jerks once a year.

moeman said...

Could be worse FHFers. Word is the blue&white basket cases in Tranna are booing their wafflers and chanting 'fire Wilson'. They aren't hockey fans, just leaf fans.

Number31 said...

Heh...did they really just show only Bergeron holding the Cup instead of Captain Gorilla in that ad?

moeman said...

Yup, the shaved ape is persona non grata.

Also, RDSers just mentioned our boy CHip. Drafted same year as Gremlin.

moeman said...

Gremlined!

moeman said...

This game needs some PFK!

Number31 said...

Is it me or does goalie interference need more clarity.

moeman said...

No ice cream for us.

Number31 said...

DISAPPOINTED.

I was talking about ice cream.

The game was typical back-to-work preseason fare.
