Go fuck yourself Torres.
And go fuck yourselves refs-all 4 of you who had your blinders on.
... and fuckface bettman smirking in his seat.
Betcha Quenneville gets fined."I had a hard time, I saw exactly what happened," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "It was right in front of me all four (officials) missed it."The refereeing tonight was a disgrace."
And I'll bet we won't hear Campbell publicly say that he was 'disappointed' by the non-call like he did about the Pens/Flyers game.
Torries has to get at least ten games. Lots of comments that this all started with the Broons and the shaved ape non suspension.
“If it is springtime, and there is a stretcher out there on the ice, Raffi Torres can’t be far away. From Milan Michalek, to Brent Seabrook, to Marian Hossa, to Jordan Eberle, to Andrew Ference, to Jan Hejda, to Nate Prosser, Torres has never met an opponent he had an ounce of respect for. Today he is the game’s preeminent head hunter. Today, Raffi Torres is clearly, the biggest punk in the game of hockey.”
How do you punish a player in the playoffs when they are not being paid. If it will help the team advance, then the rationale would be "go for it." I would propose that the suspension take effect immediately and the number of games suspended only start to count in the fall. Your out until four games into the regular season for example. Goon for now, Gone for now, gone for later. That would stop it. Isn't that what Clarence Campbell did that started the riot? (or the not so tranquil start to the Quiet Revolution).
Grigorenko is crap, MacKinnon and the Moose rule (until they play Saint John) and Cameron Critchlow has the game of his life - four goals and an assist on Drouin's winner. (Drouin was playing Midget A hockey in early December.)Yes, we will have our asses handed to us by the Saint John Sea Dogs in the Q final, if we can beat Sidney Crosby's old team, but we showed the Habs that Grigorenko would be a wasted pick and that Patrick Roy was a Hall of Fame goalie but is a nutjob as a GM, coach and manager. Let him go to a future Q-city NHL team.If things go as they should, the Maritimer will be enjoying a second straight Memorial Cup. (Bastards!)
any chance Gmoe is injured?
It is possible, but he was still getting big time minutes.
Why did 45's have that big hole in the middle? Levon Helm needs our prayers.Preds have cred, powered by TiTs.For Gods sake let our players carry handguns for self defense.
So they wouldn't be confused with 78's.
Good answer Juce, but there is more to it.http://bloggerhythms.blogspot.ca/2009/08/why-do-45-rpm-records-have-big-holes.html
Are they all Mary Louise Parker?
@Kmaxx another guy without NHL skating ability.http://lastwordonsports.com/2012/04/18/nhl-draft-prospect-profile-13-brendan-gaunce/
He may have slow twitch muscles. Lets see how high he can jump on a box jump. Does Lego have NHL speed ? Moen? LeBrow might get faster as he gets stronger, he is still pretty young. He would be a junior if he stayed at Harvard. And if he hadn't fled Quebec, he might not be out of CEGEP yet.
@Steve - the article actually makes me want him even more..Brendan Gaunce is the classic good old Canadian Boy hockey player. He’s got great size and he is not afraid to use it. He is extremely effective using his body in the offensive zone, winning board battles, getting to loose pucks, and scoring the points from the dirty areas of the ice. Gaunce thrives in traffic, and combines his powerful physique with soft hands, good hockey sense and excellent passing ability to be a point per game player for the Belleville Bulls. Gaunce is an extremely hardworking player and we’ve rarely seen this kid take a shift off... This is the kind of player the Habs need - if not now - then very soon - he is only 17!
Thanks for the Links boys. I'm the guy who wrote the articles and a HUGE HABS FAN. Note that the ranks are site wide as we have a bunch of NHL writers so we all voted, but I'm compiling our notes and putting them in article form.My personal preference for the Habs pick is Galchenyuk.I think Gaunce would be a great player in a Habs jersey too, but we won't get a shot at him. Galchenyuk is flat out better so we should take him at 3. We'd need a pick in the 10-20 range to snag Gaunce and I don't see how we get that.If he does start to fall into the 20s though, I'd advocate trading both 2nd round picks to move up and snare him. But I really don't think that he'll fall far enough for that to happen.
Also you can find every profile 1-13 so far, with a new one almost every day here....http://lastwordonsports.com/category/lastwordblog/nhldraft/
@Beaker - oh great, a lawyer. Just what we need around here. ;)Great work on the series btw. Loved your Grigs piece, I hope he's the pick. But he's not a Dman, which we know the Habs will take
I like Grigs too, just have Gally ahead on my personal preferences... however our other writers (not Habs fans) voted Grigs as the 2nd best prospect.Its really close though, either of those two, or even Forsberg and I'll be happy.I hope we don't take another D... but lets Remember Timmins has had 9 first rounders since taking over in 2003... 4 forwards 4 dmen and 1 goalie.
Lego is the fastest skater on the Team followed by PFK.
@Beaker love your evaluations. I am going to add your site to my carefully selected bookmarks, I think you will be between Kennedy Assassination and UFO sightings.
Can someone please start a facebook page where we can collect money and buy Lebrow a couple of hours of figure skating lessons. He has the most fucked up mechanics I have seen aside from Goon.
You need to make a guide to your nicknames, I've figured out most but not all of them yet.As for guys with fucked up mechanics... thats what I have up today in Codi Ceci. Somehow he;s still a pretty fast skater, but the mechanics are fucked up, and its awkward as all hell.
GCHuk, GCHuk, GCHuk.http://lastwordonsports.com/2012/04/09/nhl-draft-prospect-profile-4-alex-galchenyuk/
Go Sens, Go Flyers, Go Canucks!
2 OUT OF 3.... GO KINGS GO
I am with you GO Kings fuck the Knucks and their Godsquad owners.
I'm with anon and Steve. The Kings are the feel good story of the playoffs so far imho. And I enjoy seeing Loooouuu fail
Raffi Torres has been suspended indefinitely, pending an in-person hearing Friday, April 20, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today. The hearing, which had been planned for today, was deferred at the request of the player and the National Hockey League Players' Association.
“For reasons long forgotten, two mighty warrior tribes went to war and touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel they were nothing .... The thundering machines sputtered and stopped.
Their leaders talked ... and talked ... and talked. But nothing could stem the avalanche. Their world crumbled, the cities exploded .... A whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear .... Men began to feed on men.” They called it the NHL playoffs.
R.I.P Dick Clark
this one goes out to a guy sitting in a 5 watt radio station in Biloux Mississippi RIP.
How ironic, given the pic o' the day and our posts about records that we would hear of his sad passing.Condolences to family and friends.
A music pioneer. Sympathies.
I was just popping in to check in, and expecting the usual. Then I see..MARY LOUISE PARKER!!!!!!FUCK AND YES!!! many times!!!! God i love her. Thx moe.Go Sens! Go Kings! And this may shock you, but...GO PHUCKTARDS! I am really sick of Sid's petulance. That shoving the glove maneuver made me really mad. Be a captain FFS! My feelings expressed nicely - http://blogs.thescore.com/nhl/2012/04/16/captain-crosby-and-his-poorly-timed-antics/
Wow...a lot of stuff to cover off. Firstly - RIP Dick Clark. I always enjoyed him. Secondly - thanks Steve for the Gaunce update - first I heard about his skating (or non-skating) ability - that is important! Thirdly - Never liked Torres - so an "indefinite" suspension is a good call.And lastly - Moeman - You are a star! MLP is the only reason I became a Weeds regular. Gorgeous! (IMHO)
For me and KmaXXX, while we wait for games. The URL is pretty clear:http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xf6hvq_mary-louise-parker-weeds-bar-scene_sexy
Cheers 29!Go Phucktards! (You've made me delirious obviously!)
cris fucking lee is doing the PIT/PHI game. I can't stop laughing.
The thing about chrisfuckinlee is that once he starts calling shit he doesn't stop, so if the game gets rough or dirty it's gonna be a 3.5 hour game!!
After a 2 year investigation 43tons of hash seized at the Port of Montreal. Good thing ilks of header pic not in jeopardy.
Coyotes GM: “You would think Raffi murdered a bus load of children”Oh boy. Next thing you know good ol' cryin' barke will chime in.

Agree, saw him last night.

The bob cold drinking game has begun!
if the game is "drink every time he says something that makes no sense or is otherwise a sign of his dementia", I may be drunk in 3 minutes
Seagrams production line will go down.
1-1 in PHI
Sens gonna be toast soon
As much as I love my boy Sid, I think the "C" should have been lifted a while ago. In 2010 game 7 against us, he took a really stupid boarding penalty in the first minute of the game and we scored on the PP. The team just collapsed after that. In the case of Sid and Ovie, just because they're your best player doesn't mean they're captain material. Guy Lafleur was never captain. The C's should come off both of them. Come to think of it when the Pens won the Cup in 2009, Crosby didn't play in the third, he was injured on the bench. Anyway, go you fucking Pens go!!!!
dont care, go Sens, Go Preds. Its clear Buttman would never let the Sens win.
3-2 PHI, 2 PPG goals.
3-3 PIT, goal bounced off of Sid's ass.
4-3 PIT, ugly Staal bro.
Here comes Bob the goalie.
ugly bro again.
6-3 PIT, cue a comeback?
9-3 hatty ugly bro
Make that 9-3
oooh theviolette snarls!
Not bloody likely, but imagine if they got 7 goals and tie it?
Sens are getting bettman'd.
Why the fuck do they keep showing messier?
bob cold thinks its 10-3 Rangers. Fucking biased POS.
10-3 What a debaucle.
Take that leaf.
Nice win. Eat shit hnic.
Now thats a knife!
Go Caps!!DIE BROONS!
Go CAPS GO

I forgot to say, top prospects from top to bottom. We got the fourth line cornered. We used to be the Flying Frenchman, and now we are a fourth line powerhouse.
Not a prospect, he is a known known
On the upside, Toronto's prospects make it an AHL powerhouse.
Watch for it. The Leaf take both Gomez and Lou as last resorts to do something anything.
How do you start that conversation? "Okay I will take a bag of pucks and give you my first round draft pick if you take Gomez."
Just out of curiosity, wasn't Kaberle playing for the Leaf the last time they made the playoffs? Think we can sell that in the COTU?
So I am sitting in my English garden looking at this horse. It's very high and I'm about to climb on it. And so...Although I didn't see the game last night I am certain that chrisfuckinlee is solely responsible for the fuckin' ridiculous 10-3 scoreline that happened last night in Philly. Buttman must still have an erection. But that was not playoff hockey in any way shape or form. I stated sometime before the game started that with chrisfuckinlee reffing the game was bound to last for ever because once he starts calling penalties he can't help himself and calls more and more. So what was the result last night...the Pens get 16 PP opportunities and the Flyers get 10 - in one game! I feel bad for both teams because a stream of continual penalties can kill a good game. But what should I expect in Buttman's NHL - he'll use this game as a training example for new refs on how to calm two teams up after a rough game. What an absolute joke. Chrisfuckinlee should be shot alongside Buttman!
What an excellent suggestion for the all star break.
He shall be Levon, RIP
RIP Levon, sympathies to the family.Awesome song choice, Steve.
Condolences. Great voice, great musician.
Saw the Band once at the old Spectrum, in the post-Robbie Robertson years. Levon rocked. Music from Big Pink is one of the best albums ever. RIP Levon
I am getting a very bad feeling about the draft.The Leaf will make a deal with Columbus or the Oliers and take GGCHUK, leaving us at third with choice of GMOE, Radic Trakic, or a D. We take the D.
the leaf and bark trade their pick to Van for Lulu. They then plan the parade.
Kyle Turris is turning into a quality player, a former #3 pick overall. Took a few years for it to happen though. Gretzky nearly ruined the kid in Phoenix.Jonathan Toews was a great pick at #3.Jonathan Huberdeau will be a very good player for Florida, another #3.Three (3) is my lucky number. The Habs can't lose at #3.The Oilers will take Nail, BJ's take Ryan Murray and Canadiens take Gchuk. It's all good.
Not how to park your car.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2DTU6eaUak
Joel Quenneville should've jumped on the ice and shoved torres' head into the glass. He'dve saved $7500. Fuck off bettman.
But it's ok for Colin Campbell to comment.Eat shit.
1-0 Caps!DIE broons.
And boy, did he ever! He was phenomenal.
Fuck you Torres.
I saw the hit live and saw how illegal it was. I watched Torres go from one hit and down the ice leaping into Hossa's head. Refs suck.
Happy 4/20 4HFers.
