      Uh oh we’re getting attention

    • cliffkoroll

      very good read. thanks for sharing

    • mightymikeD

      good article.. except he puts “Sexy” and “St Louis” in the same sentence. That’s all kinds of wrong.

  • justforkicks

    Did anyone watch the Pens-Leafs game last night? Just curious why Malkin got a game misconduct and Crosby an unsportsmanlike misconduct.

    • Accipiter

      Pens were trying to bring on an extra skater by pulling the goalie. Got called for Too Much Man penalty, Crosby didn’t like it and got an unsportsmanlike penalty and Malkin got a 10 min misconduct for much of the same.

      • justforkicks

        ah ok, thanks!

      • Waylon

        That’s good to hear – Crosby’s of course great, but he’s far too much of a big whiny – boy for my tastes. There’s a reason why other fans call him “Cindy,” so a few more of those penalties may finally convince him to shut his pie hole for a change and just play.

        • Waylon

          and yes, I realize this comment may be misconstrued as misogynistic, but that is indeed what other fans call him, like it or not.

          • MySpoonIsTooBig

            You’re right, that’s what some people call him. It’s like when idiots (read: Mike Milbury) call the Sedin’s the “Sedin sisters”. Everyone ’round these here parts know that’s some bush league misogyny, but pretending it doesn’t happen won’t make it go away

          • Waylon

            I like the Mutants, but Thing One and Thing Two work just as well.

          • MySpoonIsTooBig

            Personally I’m partial to Honk and Donk, but Mutants or Thing 1 and Thing 2 are good ones too

          • justforkicks

            Honk and Donk is my preference

        • birdhead

          I don’t understand the reason, could you explain it please?

      • nextgame

        The dreaded ‘Too Much Man’ penalty.
        Hoss would get one of these every game just for stepping on the ice, no? ;=)

  • MySpoonIsTooBig

    I appreciate a good throw down as much as the next guy, but am I crazy for wanting said throw downs to actually have a purpose? For example, last year in the game against the Penguins when Engelland crushed Frogger with a dirty (but un-penalized) hit and Murdersaurus re-arranged his face in return, that was a great fight. Entertaining to watch and there was actually a reason for it as it was in response to a dirty hit (the fact that it drew an instigator penalty was complete bullshit but that’s besides the point). But staged fights, like ones right off of the opening draw in the first game of the season, how is that hockey? It’s just fucking pointless.

    • mightymikeD

      “It’s just fucking pointless” …like the Flyers? BOOM!
      Srsly, I agree with you.. Bollig has had two of the lamest staged fights I’ve ever seen this season and the rest of the crap.. jeez.

      • MySpoonIsTooBig

        You know, I’ll say this about Bollig’s fights – though the one in Phoenix was against a just-as-useless Biznasty, the one in the St. Louis game was against a guy in Chris Stewart who is FAR more important to his team than Brandon Bollig is to the ‘Hawks. Also Bollig has never had one of those incredibly inane, >5-seconds-in fights like the ones mentioned in the SI article, though that’s probably because (thankfully) there’s not a chance in hell of him being on the ice for the opening faceoff (unless maybe the ‘Hawks are hosting the ‘Yotes and Tippet puts Raffi “Limp Dick Fuckwad Piece of Shit” Torres out to start the game)…

  • laaarmer

    I find it comforting that Tootoo plays for The Red Wings.

    • mightymikeD

      also hilarious

      • laaarmer

        I had that typed, but didn’t want to sound mmdish

        • mightymikeD

          up boated

      • laaarmer

        Can you hear Bertuzzi?
        Smarter than the av er age bear eh Tootoo?

  • Paul the Fossil

    Gaborik’s hat trick last night included two downright sick goals, including the awesome OT gamewinner…not many hockey players on the planet can be compared to Kaner for wizardry with the puck but this guy is on that list:

      gabby <3 so glad to finally see a win for the rangers last night

  • wardrums

    Good morning Viet Nam…
    I’ve been trying to log in here for about two months now. This is a test – hopefully I’ve finally passed.

    • ahnfire

      well your comment showed up, so that’s a plus

    • mightymikeD

      WARDY!!!

      Welcome!

    • wardrums

      now that i can log on, can I go back to a pre-Christmas post by Fels where he said to recall Christmas memories? I remember reading the posts and they were depressing as hell – I went to spice things up and wrote a piece a little bit short of War and Peace, and couldn’t enter it.
      Or do we have to stick to hockey now!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Some guys drop the gloves for a reason. Some guys drop the gloves cuz it’s the only way they can make the stat sheet.

    I thought ‘Ass Hattery On Parade” would have worked for the Bettman article, too.

    Classic trap games ahead. Just beat the big bad Blues Bully, and the best of the Pacific Division. Now we have two games to ‘relax’ a bit before the dreaded Scum.
    Stay focused, boys, and don’t let Crow play soccer.

      I think it’s funny…

      • birdhead

        tragicomic.

    • cliffkoroll

      2/20/2008: Hawks 3, Minnesota 0 (Khabi 38 saves)
      2/27/2008: Hawks 1, Phoenix 0 (Lalime 32 saves)
      3/5/2008: Hawks 3, Anaheim 0 (Crawford 19 saves)
      3/19/2008: Hakws 5, Washington 0 (Khabi 20 saves)

      Four home games over a four week span. Four shutouts, three different goalies. Discuss.

      • birdhead

        Wins are more important than shutouts, news at 11

        • Accipiter

          What channel ?

          • birdhead

            IDK man, I get all my news from Twitter.

            I do now feel the need to disclaim that the above webpage didn’t actually make me cry though.

          • mightymikeD

            I thought you meant “Sonofa(monkey)Bitch”

  • cliffkoroll

    Stan Mikita is a fucking bad ass. If you haven’t read his book, please leave your Hawks fan card at the front desk until you have remedied this unfortunate deficiency.

    • mightymikeD

      hmm.. £12 from a UK based seller on Amazon. I’ll get that done.. where should I leave my card till then?

      • Accipiter

        At the front desk.
