I don't even know what else to say. Bring on the Rangers, I guess!Seriously though. Go see Godzilla. And get the biggest bowl of popcorn available.
It's a tale of little people overcoming giant menaces that only know destruction and chaos. You might find something familiar in there.
Plan the parade FFS
UCk PFK has McSplooge on his lips!
Lucy stays chicken
Wow, that was fun. Great series, Lucic was a thug until the end. I hear the Broons are going to trade Marchand to the Laffs. He is still a punk but now he can't play hockey either. Perfect time to become a Leaf. They could probably get a bag of those magic pucks for him, you know, the ones that turn into golf balls on April 15th.Chara looked old and slow. Rask looked like he had the yips. Cherry must be seething. I am surprised the "cockroaches" did not come out. It is a perfect year for the mediots at CBC to lose hockey.
love the magic pucks
I am giddy. GIDDY I tells ya. Like a schoolgirl.
I feel the same way
TPB! Don't legalize it, man!
I am sick of talking about that "other" team, but just one more thing. Julien said in his post game remarks that many of the things that the bruins were accused of doing that were arrogant was due to Boston Strong. Out of all the disrespectful, piece of shit things that organization has done, this has to be the worst. Saying you tried to win for the city after something so terrible is one thing. But to try to mask dirty, cheap, arrogant chest thumping plays with a horrendous tragedy is too much. I've never been to Boston (incredibly, I even have family thereabouts) but I'm sure the majority of people are good. The way the city responded to the attack was commendable, especially the first responders. Using Boston Strong as a rallying cry last year was understandable and done with some taste. But to sit there and say your players taunted another team, squirted water in their faces, gave cheap shots, thumped their chests after empty netters in name of that tragedy is yet another disrespectful move by the organization. What classless pieces of garbage.And with that, I'm done talking about them. Even when Lucic shows up in the news for murder this summer I'll just nod my head and move on.

And so it begins...Poor way to win?!? Hmmm... wasn't aware that a team getting a lead and holding on quite solidly to win wasn't allowed. Fuck 'em. GYFHG!!!
I got through 3 paragraphs and I couldn't take it anymore. Blechfuck em all
I read the article and the comments. Man did they ever rip this hack to shreds over his biased article and deservedly so.
What a glorious morning. ☺And fuck you broonz, now you're dead fuckers.
http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/milan-lucic-and-the-worst-tradition-in-hockey-150002916.htmlPuck Daddy, I know I know. He says we should just eliminate the post-game handshake. It's not Lucic's fault he told someone he'd kill them, it's the fault of the fact that he actually has to shake the hand of the team that beat him. He shouldn't have to do that. You know, be a good sport. In a sport.What a Bs cocksucker.fuck 'em all
Just tweeted: Can we agree that Weise was a bit of a dick speaking out of turn like that?Suuuuuuuureeeeeee. Weise is the dick in all of this!
It's all Weise's fault, obvs.
I expect Lurch to run for Parliament as a PC
Read about Lurch on Wilde's blog. I like listening to him on 690, says more than you ever get to hear on the news, likely things he can't really say, not that he curses but has to remain cookie-cutter.
If Weise doesn't speak out, Lucic's aggression and arrogance in the handshake line don't get any attention, right?
Again he challenges anyone to match him. Usually everyone worries about PK over-stepping but somehow PK is winning over the world right now.Well, everyone but the Hockey Night in Canada crew, who I am told, praised the Bruins until Don Cherry's bitter endPrice also was vital as a leader. Price was the player who gave a surprising speech in the second intermission and the message was simple but important: enjoy the moment and have fun.Read more: http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/call-of-the-wilde-dare-to-dream-1.1823044#ixzz31nsxBm7p
"It wasn't much," Price said. "It was just a reminder to live in the moment. That's all I really said. That's the truth. At this time of year, it's easy to let your emotions get carried away, especially in a situation like tonight. I thought our guys … I don't even think they really needed for me to say anything.http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=719370&navid=DL|NHL|home
Frickin' awesome. But PFK needs his emotions.
Knuckles is ripping into Lucic on TSN690 right now. SO good
Now he's on Julien, and it's amazing. "I am SICK of his self-serving CRAP"
Love Nilan's show, can't wait till he gets back.
I like how he say Lucic's so stupid he probably doesn't realize (Y) likely doesn't understand what he was saying anyway. Upthread, from Steve, you see him yapping away and DDD taps (Y) on the arm.
Unsettling news from the NHL: Buffalo Sabres forward Zenon Konopka has been suspended for 20 games for violating the terms of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program. Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the suspension is accompanied by mandatory referral to the NHL/NHLPA Program for Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health for evaluation and...
The player's contract expires with the conclusion of the 2013-14 season. The term of the suspension will be served at the beginning of any new contract.Wonder what team would sign someone who upon signing has to sit for 20 games? Leafs?
The Rangers will be attending the funeral for Marty's mom on Sunday.
Its beer for breakfast time, first game against Rags 1pm Saturday
woke up this morning and grabbed myself a beer
the future has a parade, and after that its unclear
poke the bear
Not to be arrogant or disrespectful but we are going to plow over the rags like the Broons thought they would de-cloth us. I say five games in the worst scenario.
Whew, I've just finished about 3 hours getting caught up on all my reading about last nights festivities including a lot of comments. One of my favourites: "Poke the bear? The Habs performed a full body cavity search." Bwahahahahaha!!!!I happened to catch Chris Nilan ripping the broons, lucy and jabba the hutt to shreds. Love it!!Finally broke 90 today. The course, well, the greens are in rough shape after this winter and I was in rough shape after not swinging a club for 6 months. I'm beat.
congrats on breaking 90 now will you be any less compelled by white balls
I laughed so hard, I almost fell off my chair.http://www.cambridgetimes.ca/sports-story/4522935-bruins-lucic-recently-released-anti-bullying-book/
its like a Fat Steve lecture on democracy
Is this real life? Was it all just a dream? Are our Habs still amazing?
Another excellent poke the bear embellishment compilation from G7. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ibf5gUZisNk
What Eller told his dad after G5 (if you haven't already read it):http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=452244
If I remember the games the Habs played against the Rangers this season correctly, they were pretty free-wheeling ones. I remember they beat the Rangers in October then lost in November (but should have won only they played for shit) and then the last game of the season they handled them easily. SO I am cautiously optimistic about this series. ONE GAME AT A TIME! Go Habs Go!! And a Saturday afternoon game means dinner time hockey for me on Saturday night !!
The second game was an absolute crap game won 1-0 by the Rags at the Bell Center. The Habs looked like the Walking Dead.Hey, we'll get to see CHicken perform his "fall on his his ass all the time" act.
2am start time for me (so close to normal time for you, I guess, KmaXXX). I'll be half in the bag by puck drop which will likely be closer to 230. Finally, Saturday night hockey for me, sort of.
The Rags team is Gainys mistake, Chicken and Old pharts with Elvis in net,.
Something that may have been overlooked with the festivities is that the USA lost to Latvia at the World Championships. I don't know if it was as big of an upset as Canada losing to France, but it was in regulation and Tim "The Big Flopper" was in net. And yes, Gudlevskis was in goal for Latvia. Kind of glad the TB coach refused to play him in the playoffs.
Actually, Latvia is currently in second in their group at 3-0-0-1. They beat Finland and Kazakhstan, too. Their only loss was to Germany. Go Latvia!
Just caught Kerry Faser's latest verbal diarrhea. Some bruin fans wrote in still whining and complaining and Kerry does nothing but support the guy. He literally lists every call that MTL should have gotten against, and why they shouldn't have gotten the ones they did with zero balance. Poor Marchand getting a penalty for a snow shower! Bournival embellished that last call! Poor bruins! It's disgusting. Thought the guy was ok, but this is an obvious hit job. Even if he disagreed with the call, there's a way to be balanced about it. This is as balanced as Arya and Hordor on a seesaw.
Yep, plus he always seems to throw kidG when who has absolutely nothing to do with the the question which brought about the article.Don't remember what I was watching, but a former ref said that the head of the refs had a conference call will all GMs whose teams were in the playoffs with warnings of types of infractions would not be tolerated. The GMs pass this down to their coaches who pass this down to their players and snowing was one of them. If Julien or his players didn't heed the guidlines, then too bad.
Y'know, if it's Bergeron or some other bruin snowing Price I'd agree, weak call. But I'm not exaggerating when I say that Marchand could get 3,4,5 penalties per shift and rarely gets a call. With all the antics the bruins pulled in the series it's their reputation that made some of those calls. No one to blame but themselves. Like when the Habs had Lapierre. He could be clutch, but he was also a shit disturber and a diver. His rep got him lots of calls.
PIT will announce this morning GM Ray Shero and head coach Dan Bylsma have been fired.
Shero front runner for Caps GM job.
It's done apparently, so says TSN.
Thinking if Muller could of held out, he might have had a shot at the coach spot there. He's a player's coach, and maybe that's what PIT needs.
SF delayed until early afternoon. HANG ON FHFers!
Is it my imagination or did KidG not get a snow shower penalty against the Bolts? I know PK got one in the regular season.
Whatever, let's say it was a make up call for the 100000000 other infractions ratface got away with every shift. Sucker punching Plecks before a faceoff in G7 to start.
Nah, think I'm dreaming. Whatever. Broons and all of their supporters still suck the big wazoo.
Plek got one in the very first game of the season I believe.
Woohoo!@JohnLuTSNMtl: #Habs Galchenyuk is taking part in his first full practice with the team, and is wearing a regular jersey. Appears t/b cleared for contact.@JohnLuTSNMtl: #Habs lines: Pacioretty-Desharnais-Gallagher Bournival-Plekanec-Vanek Bourque-Eller-Gionta Prust-Brière-Weise Galchenyuk-White-Parros
The question is, who comes out if gCHuck is ready? Carnival has played very well. RBQ went into a shell against the physical bruins, but will he come back out against another speedy skilled team again? For the first time in 2 decades, we have almost too much depth.I DO NOT MEAN TO TEMPT YOU OH GREAT HOCKEY GODS! I AM MERELY ENJOYING YOUR BOUNTIFUL GIFTS. A MERE MORTAL LIKE ME CANNOT BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND YOUR WAYS, OH GREAT HOCKEY GODS!
I am putting gCHuck with SuperPlexxe and VonT, Carnival on the fourth with CHip and Vampire Dan
Holy shit, did you guys see that hero cat? Saved a kid from a dog! Now the cat's throwing out the first pitch at a baseball game. God Bless America. http://sports.nationalpost.com/2014/05/16/hero-cat-to-throw-out-first-pitch-at-bakersfield-blaze-minor-league-baseball-game/
Saw it yesterday, forgot to post if for Moey, it was awesome!!
I can't stop reading about the Habs! Carey's hometown held a rally for him. Adorable and awesome. http://globalnews.ca/news/1331637/anahim-lake-hoping-hometown-hero-carey-price-continues-his-run/Now go see Godzilla. The big guy doesn't wait for you mere mortals.
In 1990, I drove through Anahim Lake on my way to Bella Coola. Looking back, I'm sure it was some cruel initiation. It was my first real job and I was sent with a small Arab man (and his wife tagged along), they had some english, to count cars in the community of Bella Coola. Well after a 10 hour drive which ended by navigating hairpin turns down a mountain on a narrow road we arrived at Bella Coola (not to be confused with Bella Bella). I took the first counting shift and in two hours I counted 4 cars, 3 trucks, a tractor and 22 head of cattle. Yeah, I was punked. And I wonder if I saw a 3 year old out playing street hockey that autumn afternoon, practicing his butterfly?
I'm alive its Sexy Friday!http://fourhockeyfans.blogspot.ca/2014/05/boys-will-be-boys-oh-look-girls.html
