|If this is the "new", helloooooo|
Some things never change - 7 PM on the CBC. No wait, that's a lie. When I was a kid games were at 8 PM. Much more civilized. You just can't finish dinner by 7, and I refuse to eat in front of the TV like an animal. Ok that's a lie too. Oh and I guess the arena in Montreal has changed too. Boy this is going well.
Old frenemies - the gang at Pension Plan Puppets were always good to us. We shared good-natured ribbing and it was all in fun. Holy fuck what happened to the look of that site? Maybe we'll find out in my new book, When Web Redesign Goes Horribly Wrong. Thank god FHF refused SB Nation's offer back in the day. If my site looked like that now I'd be violently ill every time I posted. And not from the meth.
New faces - all hail the gCHuks!!! Gally and Blunden also made the lineup, who knows if they are playing or in the press box. Though I guess Blunden isn't technically "new" as he played a bunch of games last season, whenever the hell that was. Free agent signings (how long ago was that??) Armstrong and Prust make their debuts. Welcome to the pressure cooker guys. Tronna and the Big Apple got nothing on us here.
Old battleaxes - Vodkov's knees. Hang in there, guys! The new season depends on you.
What's old is new again - CoaCH Therrien's 2.0 stint with the franCHise. Saviour or disaster? Be sure to make your decision by the end of the second period tonight.Also, Fankie Bouillon! Cube!!!! I don't even know where he was. Nashville? Phoenix? One of those places. I really haven't done any research for this preview. Some things really don't change.
Newly MIA - I don't think I need to tell you PFK remains unsigned. Nokia is injured. SuperpleXXXe should probably play despite not being 100%. TFS will start, despite needing a therapy day yesterday for a tweaked groin.
Of course, what's really new is that I'm on 4HF. I can't tell you how happy I am that moe gives me the chance to come out of retirement every now and then. With 4HF and the good work being done by the gang over at PK'ists, the spirit of FHF lives on. Well, except for Panger, HF10 and LG77, who are all dead I guess. So to finish up this post, let's mix the old and the new. This 4HF photo arrayTM (the new) consists of pics that were all posted on FHF at one time or another (the old). Some I don't even remember using, because I'm old. But I must have used them, because I found them all on my computer in the My Pictures/FHF/used directory. It goes without saying that if anything creative is in there, you know who it comes from. Ahh, the memories. Sniff.
