  3. So the night before Team Canada hits the ice, tsn (I think on the quiz) everyone is unanimous that CArey will be the goalie start to finish. WTF took you so long?

    The Russian/Slovenia game is actually pretty close, the Yanks are kicking the shit out of Jaro and Buda. Is the shaved ape not able to keep up anymore? Patches should give him a wink.

    The track worker hit by the bobsled has a broken leg and a concussion. Lucky...in a way.

    It's truly laughable, these fucking Toronto hacks on SNet bashing price right out of the gate. They're astonished that Carey would get the start over Greasy Bob, it's his job to lose...blah, blah, fucking blah. Here they are trying make a big deal out of playing Norway, here's a clue you dumb fucks: it doesn't matter. This is a nothing game, the games against the big boys will show what Carey is made of, this is just a practice today. I turned it off because I know they are going to slag PK next 'cause he's a healthy scratch. Fuck them I'm watching Jennifer Jones curl 'til game time.

  37. So will cbc say Keith getting a penalty holding onto the jersey with 27sec left in the period, that he took a selfish penalty and is a defensive liability?

  38. I hate Bell and have no use for pampers, so why did the CBC advertise to me? I thought they knew my every thought and would redirect me to the Allen Mendelshon blog spot.. If I spelled that wrong fuck off.

  39. "Obviously I feel I deserve to be here, but the attitude you come in here with is so important," Subban said after practice Tuesday. "I'd rather be overexcited about being here rather than be analyzing everything, thinking this is what I deserve, this is how I should be used. It's different than with your club team. You might not play the first game and then might end up playing the most minutes by the end of the tournament. You don't know what can happen. You just gotta go there, have fun, enjoy the experience. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We don't know the future with ice hockey in the Winter Olympics with all the NHL players, so enjoy the experience.

    "I know I won the Norris Trophy. Everybody knows that, but at the end of the day it's not about what you think, it's about how you're being used and accepting that role."

    2. All homer moments alone I respect Babcock to do the right thing. PFK is not a finished product. PFK does not have a system like they have in Ottawa that says, put the talent on the front of the bus. I really do not believe anyone cares PFK is black. Everyone has the prejudiced squeezed out of them in the pressure to win,

    Norway played the only way they could : the rope-a-dope. Austria will play the same way tomorrow, be nice to see PK get a shot.

  51. OK game to get the big ice kinks out. You can tell they have to adjust as the 'along the boards' stuff doesn't work like in the NHL. Dmen seem to cope better, e.g.. Weber's goal was calculated as he slightly moved in. Doughty had room to move on his goal. Surprised the speedy O-men didn't fly out there. Bring on Austria!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Also, no long Dman pass from zone to zone. I wonder who can do that kind of thing on the big ice.

  52. As predicted:
    A small surprise was Norway scoring on a redirect goal by Mathis Olimb on a shot that came about after Canada goalie Carey Price misplayed a shoot-in just 22 seconds into the 3rd period, breaking Canada's shutout.

  59. PFK needs a Team Canada nickname, à la CArey.

    Easy to type and effective is the rule of the FHF nickname.

    My suggestion, seeing as Norris trophy winner PFK! was added to Team Canada with CHagrin in the mediot circles and he adds a fucking lot to Team Canada, is +76

  60. Absolutely gutted by what happened in short track last night. Outside hockey, short track is my sport to watch and the men's relay is the superbowl. It's not about Canada "losing a medal" (I'm Canadian, I'm used to it), it's about my favourite event being ruined. And the Koreans were out, which sucked too (you always want to beat a real contender). Then I decided to really be masochistic and watch Nesbitt struggle (nothing personal, it's just sad watching her fall from grace in such a short time). Not a great day for Canada.

    But our curlers won, as did our Men's hockey team. Today we hope for Chan to move up to Gold. Tomorrow the short trackers will be back and St Gelais has a chance to get a medal again. It's going to probably be a slow weekend as far as medals, but it should still be entertaining.
