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

What’s Pissin’ Me Off Today!? (03-17-08)

Surprisingly not much today, must be because its St. Paddy’s Day, puts me in a good mood.

 But I was watching Drive This Hardcore Radio on The Score earlier today, and they got an e-mail that set me off a bit. Apparently there was a story out there in Pittsburgh somewhere, where some journalist looked at the number of when Crosby has been in, and when he has been out. According to his research, the Penguins have a higher winning percentage, and have a high Goals For Per Game. So because of that, this “journalist” decided that the Penguins are better team without Crosby, and that they could make him expendable.

This guy must be out of his mind, even if the team has better stats without him, there is no package that any team could put together to get him. Its like the Capitals making Ovechkin available. Ok, maybe not quite, because the Pens have a way deeper talent pool, but seriously… trade Crosby?!

The only other thing is still the Pronger crap, I am not gonna talk about it, I’ve talked about it already. And it is currently getting slowly poked to death on every sports channel, and sports website out there. And just the fact that we have nothing better to talk about, is pissin’ me off!

DIGG ME!

Pronger Let Off The Hook, Again

Chris ‘Douche-bag’ Pronger, as I like to call him, was at it again the other night. Pronger stomped, and when I say stomped, I really mean tried to step through, Kesler’s leg.

So Chris Simon got 30 games for doing the same thing earlier this season, so one would think that Pronger would get about the same number right? WRONG! Douche-bag gets ZERO! This makes total sense if you think about it, if they suspended Pronger, that would ultimately end his season, and that can’t happen, not to a star player. Elite players aren’t dirty, they aren’t cheap, they are the guys people watch to see, so they have to be in the line-up.

This morning, I pretty much ripped a blog because I thought he was a little off calling out the refs like he did. I did agree that the NHL favours some teams sometimes, but I thought this was just the fan in me, that thinks the NHL is always out to get certain teams. And then they have to pull a stunt like this off. I hate Pronger.

I don’t hate Pronger because he knocked up a reporter while playing in Edmonton, which in turn caused him to demand a trade because his wife made him. Nope, because I don’t like Edmonton either. I don’t hate Pronger because the gap in his teeth is about as wide as the gap in his stories. Nope, because I’ve been there. I don’t hate Pronger because he is a talented individual. Nope, because then I would hate the entire NHL. I hate Pronger because he receives preferential treatment, and one of these days he is going to seriously hurt someone, and the NHL will turn a blind eye.
