  1. the Maritimer9:10 AM

    Although the ol' Maritimer accurately called that scenario last night, I'm making no predictions for tonight, other than I'm having a few tonight. I'm going to try and match 29 drink for drink, so he has to let me know whenever he goes to the concessions tonight for his $15 Molsons. Me, I'm talking Jack, Glen, Sleeman, London Pride or plain old Moosehead.

    Now, it's going to be cockroach heaven tonight, their blue balls will be aching and I'm looking forward to all the angst and soul searching as they contemplate losing their Saturday night monopoly and constant leaf blowing. Moe is out sharpening his knives as I speak....or is that a can of Raid I hear being shaken?

  2. Though I usually shit talk the leaf and we meet those assholes tomorrow (today for you in Canada), let's take a moment for the broon.

    The broon currently sit in first in the Atlantic (still have a hard time calling our division that, but it's not as hard as explaining the name "Metropolitan" to my friends the other night). They have 4 more points than our Habs. No doubt the broon are a good team with an excellent goalie in Rask, a much harder guy to mock than the tea bagger flopper.

    However: STATS. The broon have only played 5 games against the much tougher Western Conference. They are 2-1-2, with both wins being by a goal, one in the skills competition. The Habs have played 13 against the West, second only to the Panthers (13). They are 6-6-1. Most of those games were played while dealing with injuries to key players. Injuries are not an excuse, I'm just saying that they held a (close) .500 record against the likes of the Sharks, Ducks, Nucks, Wild, Blues, et al. in that time. It's also important to note all of Boston's games against the West were at home. In fact, their longest road trip has been a whole 3 games over 7 days which included Florida and Buffalo. Actually, their longest road trip of the season is 4 games (which they do twice). Our Habs have 4 four game road trips this year. Oh, and a 6 game road trip, too.

    This is all to say, with all of this in mind, the Habs are 4 points behind this NHL darling of a team. Remember last year when the broons were forced to catch up in games played at the end and play more than twice a week? They collapsed. Yes, they did well in the playoffs because they're a good team. But adversity doesn't suit them well (unless it's against the leaf). Meanwhile, things settler down for the Habs over the next couple of weeks. With the overdue fall of the leaf, the standings by Christmas will look much different than they appear now.

  5. You know how when you were a kid and super tired you would pour the orange juice into your cereal? I just almost did that with my Saturday night whiskey, but with a bottle of water. Maybe my body is telling me something. In any event, I host a quiz night at a local pub and just racked my brain to come up with a general knowledge category with every answer being a Muppet name (the obscure ones). I like to do those kinds of theme categories. I've done it on Rememberance Day with the first letter of the answers spelling out "Lest We Forget", and another time with every answer being the name of a local bar. Anyway, I'm blaming this brain fart on that mental exercise.

    Example, "Also the Korean word for "Kiss", what was the name of Mr. Burns' long lost teddy bear"?

  10. Honestly, I look forward to matchups with the broons as much as I hate them.(you're bang on, Orangman - 4pts and what's with all those afternoon games?) I just can't stomach the laffs, their just a fucking nuisance with the worst arrogant fans in the league. I actually liked the headline on TSN: "Sabres silence vocal maple leaf fans with OT win" hahah

  14. Don't know if I can bear to watch the cockroaches tonight, but I will. They're probably all quite busy trying to figure out just who at Rogers they need to blow to get themselves hired. Because, really, who the fuk else would take them?!

    Anyway, I got a couple of buddies in a group of 6 headed to the game tonight from Halifax - 4 Habs fans, 2 leaf 'fans'. Hope they have a great time and are treated to a great game with a great ending. Watch for them and take a shot of whatever you're drinking (and yell "SOCIABLE!!!") if you see a bunch of losers holding up a banner that says Halifax Nova Scotia with the Habs and Leafs logos. I haven't decided if it's a Stella, Pumphouse (local craft beer) or rum and coke/eggnog type of night.

  15. So I am sitting here still pissed that the Habs lost last night...even if it was a skills competition. The fact is that they should never have ended up tied in the first place. Frankie Bo Bo fucked budi out on the first goal...and wtf was he doing on the ice in overtime? And Parros is playing tonight...just fuckin great. Get goaded into penalties with some dumb mutherfuckin leaf dickhead then the Habs play half the first period short handed...fuckin eMpTy2 is playing right into their hands if that is what happens...but then again why should we expect him to suddenly become a decent coach just because his team won a few games - back to last night - after coming with a formula that worked well he fucks around with the lineup, sits Murray and look how well tha a ll went. Now he's bringing Murray back , which I hope means boo boo can fuck off back to the press box...but who.s the fuckin brain surgeon sitting to bring on that superstar Parros then? I am going to watch tonight - but I am on a fuckin short fuse after last night....

    Go Habs go!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not saying Parros is a superstar or anything, but when they played out west that 4th line was struggling and MT2.0 just kept putting them back on. Opening night, 4th line was actually playing well and created chances - till he got pulled down by Orr. Put Prust back on that line maybe we'll see some improvement?

  82. the Maritimer8:11 PM

    Here's my take: Habs remember game 1 very well, they let the leaf dictate the style of that match and are determined to not have a repeat. They are applying a relentless forecheck making the weak leaf D turn the puck over. The forwards are coming back giving the leaf forwards no time and space. Keep that up for 40 more minutes and the cockroaches won't be able to get to the Calgary/LA game fast enough.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Not sure if any of you have watched 'Life in the NHL" epsiode 1 features PFK. Well, he says outside of hockey, for him it's fashion. He is so hated for not being a 'cardboard cutout' that I am sure the haters will use that as further fuel for their hate-flames that he is 'a -me-me-look-at-me-selfish-me'. Fuck all of 'em.
