Lord Stanley I Presume?

Recommended Posts

O Brant, you poor naïve boy. This is just the beginning - the day after the draft! How about that first round? What do they put in the water in Cole Harbour anyway? Love Darnell Nurse going to Edmonton--the Oilers will gush again for sure! Another hockey player with basketball/football antecedents - Popeye Jones "lost his boy to hockey" when he took him to a Stanley Cup final...

Um...I sense you'd rather I take myself off to the TooManyMen site....

Haha Brant, you are still stuck with an \NHL team,now called the Arizona Coyotes. Soon you will be wearing your state-mandated team Jersey and attending "voluntary" pep rallies as the Secret Plan moves into Phase 2!

Yeah, I'll wear that jersey, but not any pants! And if they still let me in I'll pop a Viagra!

That's the spirit! There is no better way to meet compatible friends than through Hockey!

I have to report that the recurrent image of Brant, striding clad only in Coyotes jersy, gunbelt with holster and maybe socks, has had me giggling all day.

That's not how George Zimmerman would react (if he weren't on trial).

--Brant

you are no argument against George Zimmerman

True, it would have been Gunfight at the OK Arena.

Mwahaha, I just read that one of my hockey heroes, Dallas Eakins (mediocre player, peerless character) rents out properties, in guess where, ||||Arizona!

We're everywhere and there is no escape.

Brace yourself for the Edmonton invasion, o ye son of the Golden West.

PS Eakins' mentor and inspiration was Roger Neilson, a hockey Pericles who endured Sophoclean vicissitudes. Or maybe I mean Euripidean. Whatever.

Well let's see, at a rate of four Americans to every one Canadian and your special fourth of July discount - maybe enough.

Great new addition to Real Housewives of the NHL! Now there are two famous PEI Cuthberts.

Will the reported cat-feud between TV Star and Goalie's Wife heat up this season? Stay tuned!

Just want to join Adam and any other Rangers fans who are welcoming Dominic Moore back to the team that first drafted him. He spent nearly two years off the ice to be with his wife Katie who was dying of a rare cancer. He's 32 now.

I believe they met at Harvard where he played hockey. Love Story for real.

He is a centre and what hockeytalkers call "a character guy".

Might as well pick up the 2013 season here, since it is one of my better topic titles.

Leafs lost last night, snapping a 6 to 1 winning streak, and. there was a general sigh of relief. No, not by the other teams, here in Toronto itself.

The coach has been whining that the team is sloppy and can't expect to keep winning with such poor performances. The players have been slinking around apologizing for not playing better. The sportsmedia have been rehashing the bad choices of the management over the last three years.

Hockey business as usual here. Talk about tearing down the good for not being good enough.

Among last night's highights, our goalie was mown down by his own teammate in the first minute of play, and the backup came in. There was no backup for him, occasioning much speculation that Leafs legend Johnny Bower, age 80, who was in attendance at the game, would be pressed into service.

Fortunately he was spared, as heroic efforts produced the U of T Varsity Blues goalie from a noodle house nearby and got him dressed in time for the third period. He was kept in the skate sharpening room and not called upon to play, but kept company by expensive David Clarkson, who started the preseason by leaping off the bench and joining a brawl for no discernible reason and got a ten game suspension.

|Now Leafs are on a road trip against the best teams in the league and I do not feel good about it. Those Minnesota Tax |Rapers in especial, are not into sportsmanlike conduct. Those weird scythes and rainbows on their jerseys are enough to freak anybody out.

As always, I'm just saying.

The only good things about last night's game were the classy reception Chi gave \Dave Bolland, and the anthem singer. Cornelison is really good. Not as good as Newlands, but really good. There is some comfort, not much but some, that Boston are still stuck with the worst anthem singer of all time. Having mostly been stuck with the Worst Management of All Time for the last four decades, we can sympathize.

I have seen the light about Miley Cyrus. She is not cute like I thought, she is ugly, hideously ugly, and her nihilistic paean to nonvolition "We Can't Stop" is the work of the Devil.

When the Leafs were winning, the discordant strains of that mockery of music began infesting ACC eardrums as the victory song. The team and staff variously disliked, or hated that song, yet obviously inside pressure had been exerted to get it played.

The evildoer was unmasked by the solid investigative work of Sean McIndoe, among others. Immoral Leafs forward Tyler Bozak, as detailed in McIndoe's expose, "Tyler Bozak Ruins Everything", of course has "no comment."

Meanwhile the havoc has been wreaked.... or maybe wrought? and Leafs are losing as is part of the master plan of Bozak's real bosses who control the NHL. I better not say their name as I am not brave like McIndoe but they are very very good friends with a certain well known Enemy of the Good, and I am not talking Soros.

If it walks like a Duck and quacks like a Duck and gets a 2 goal lead.....Leafs can still cook them!

3 hats off to Phil Kessel

Daniel Alfredsson, former Ottawa God and now the Great Satan of Detroit, got showed pretty good how the team he captained can do without him. Five goals worth of showed.

Bobby Ryan, who found in hockey a haven from his harrowing and perplexing childhood, scored twice displayed as always, what is called "character" in the game. And in life.

Today is a low point in the career of John Scott, a hockey drone compared with whom your average NHL goon is Lytton Strachey. It is obvious to most that he should not be deployed again, so the heat is also on his criminally idiotic coach, while as usual the GM and owners will wring their clean hands.

It is up to the Buffalo fans now, and I hope there are some true hockey fans among them.

|Leafs keep winning although they are outshot in every single game by alarming margins.

This is a big concern of Coach Carlyle who was included in a Down Goes Brown roundup of "Coaches on the Hot Seat" . McIindoe reports that he currently has the hottest seat in the whole NHL. He put his office chair on the wing with Kessel and it has seven points in its last three games.

You can be a Maple Leaf and part of the Maple Leaves, but the plural of leaf is not leafs. On the plus side, leaves can be raked up and burnt. There is nothing to be done with leafs except to beat them at their own game, preferably by The New York Rangers. Of course, there are no rangers in New York--I don't think (yes, I have chosen not to think)--they are all out West.
