I’ve been away….

… so I am going to ramble off on as much stuff that I can think of in the next 5 minutes. I hate the end of the semester, been wired for 3 days.

  1. Sean Avery is douche. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. The “sloppy seconds” comment was too far. Sure that kind of stuff is said all the time within locker rooms, in fact much worse is said, but the key point is that they are said WITHIN the locker room. The way he did, it was completely premeditated, and the fact that he had the media gather around him, and he was acting (horribly by the way) was too much.
  2. Burkie is finally in Toronto. I am meh on this matter, I like the way he talks and handles the media. Although I am not sure that he is that good of a GM, I think he’s overrated a little, but what do I know. He has a cup, he did manage to bring Pronger and Niedermayer into Anaheim, sure it was dumb luck, but he did it. And to think Ferguson wouldn’t let go of Kaberle and Steen for Pronger. That’s ok, we got Stempniak out of Steen…
  3. Laviolette out, Maurice back in. What is this? A revolving door in Carolina? Should we expect Lavi to be head coach there again 3 years from now? I loved was Maurice was able to accomplish in his time in Toronto, it was his fault that JFJ can’t put together a decent roster.
  4. I love the McDonald’s commercials!

And thats all I can think of, I have to go to school now. Later

Ovie Vs. Malkin

Wow, that’s all I have to say about what happened tonight, in this rare hockey-filled Wednesday. (Good Ol’ American Thanksgiving, wouldn’t want to show any hockey while the entire US has a day off eh, Bettman?) Anyways! Alexander Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin just keep on rolling, and continue to amaze us.

Alex for his part, pretty much single-handedly beat the Thrashers tonight, rattling off a Hat trick, scoring on 50% of his shots, adding an assist, and his goals counted for two on the PP and his one that wasn’t on the PP just happened to be the Game Winner. I’d say that was successful outing.

Malkin on the other hand, decided that he didn’t feel like losing tonight. After the Pens go down two on a late in the second, (read: normally a momentum boost) he comes out and sets up some Crosby guy to pull within one, then says ‘ef this noise, and scores a natural hat trick, meanwhile registering on 75% of his shots. Take that Ovechkin.

I personally love this rivalry between these two superstars, but one has got to wonder what is going happen come 2010. Rumour has is, that there is no way they could agree to play with one another, so Russia might have to make due with only one of them. Which puts them in one helluva squeeze. First off, which guy do they pick and at the same time, which guy should they completely piss off to the point that he’ll probably never return to ‘Mother Russia’? Or do they just try to persuade them both to share a locker room and hope that their hate for each other doesn’t spread throughout. We all know how well that situation is working out in the Dallas locker room with Avery.

Honestly who knows, but I for one, cannot wait to see what will happen. I just wish that they would have been playing against eachother when they decided to pop off those hatties.
