      • Flavius

        Endorse

  • BigHoss

    im happy Hossa is playing

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Not a good start, Seabs.

  • Flavius

    FUCK

  • 10thMountainFire

    You guys all left me in the second period thread.

    • Z-man19

      You were sleeping

      • 10thMountainFire

        You should have awakened me!

    • BigHoss

      well now you found us

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    GO HAWKS!

  • Daze55

    That was a dumb ass penalty.

  • CozBullsFan

    Let’s go Hawks!

  • DesertHawk

    I’m lagging behind

  • 10thMountainFire

    Duncan Keith, hockey player.

  • 2883

    Mom didnt post a 3rd period thread, ergo I’m late

    • DesertHawk

      Me too!

  • BigHoss

    is it me or does Marleau piss you off?

    • DesertHawk

      You probably piss me off more than him.

      • BigHoss

        thanks…

        • DesertHawk

          I don’t know why but syntactically that made me think you were asking whether you or him were more annoying. You don’t actually piss me off :D

    • 10thMountainFire

      A lot of things piss me off… Vancouver fans, the smell of burn pits, Afghanistan, ignorant people, bigotry, and basketball.

      But Marleau is kind of like toast. How do you hate toast?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Nice forecheck, Krugs

  • Flavius

    Frogger is THE SHIT on the PK

  • Daze55

    Saaaaaderrrr

  • happyhuman

  • BigHoss

    saad

  • pompoon

    A SHORTY!!! BY SAAD!!!

    • Z-man19

      Don’t think so, PK was over wasn’t it?

      • Z-man19

        Then again I’m wrong

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    You see that, Q? 13 doesn’t have the speed for the first line

  • Z-man19

    Damn, little behind I see. SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!!

  • 10thMountainFire

    Antti Niemi, son of Finland, KNEEL! KNEEL BEFORE SAAD!

  • Face of Boe

    I knew there was a shorty coming, I was just off by a period

  • chidiver

    Wazzup kids! What did I miss?

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Saad saying, FUCK YOU

      • chidiver

        What did I do to Saad?

        • DesertHawk

          Showed up late.

          • chidiver

            He’ll get over it.

    • BigHoss

      awesomeness!

    • Flavius

      3rd best penalty kill in the history of EVER

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        Well, there was the Welsh regiment at Rourke’s Drift…

    • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

      we has a shorty from saad

  • 1benmenno

    sweeet!

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    I am so happy with bowmans drafting recently.

    • CozBullsFan

      most definitely!

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Suddenly we love Stan And Q. What a difference winning makes.

      • putmeinthemadhouse

        ive always liked stan.

      • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

        Kind of makes me sick to my stomach. Its like all that criticism last year was misplaced for now.

      • 10thMountainFire

        I’ve always liked Q.

    • BigHoss

      its been excellent

    • 10thMountainFire

      Pirri and Morin. Do it. NOW.

      • putmeinthemadhouse

        pirri is a tallon pick, morin came in from a trade though.

        • 10thMountainFire

          DON’T CAAAAAAAAARE.

          • BigHoss

            ive been disappointed with morin

          • 10thMountainFire

            He’s been playing well at Rockford. CNS made a great point in saying there’s no spot for him here with how well Frolik and Kruger are playing. He’s bait.

          • BigHoss

            i thought he would be in like his second year by now scoring like 20 goals for us

          • 2883

            Dunno if he’s that good the concussion really slowed his progress.

          • BigHoss

            thats what i was thinking

          • 10thMountainFire

            He’s good bait this summer. Morin is playing well down there.

          • 2883

            Who is giong to give a lot for an AHL 20 goal scorer?

          • 10thMountainFire

            He still has some value… but I don’t recall saying ‘a lot’.

          • 2883

            a 6th would be generous

      • 2883

        Pirri and Morin don’t do anything for me….

        • 10thMountainFire

          They’re going to do something for you when they’re dealt for picks and roster upgrades.

          • 2883

            Yes

  • 10thMountainFire

    This Saad kid… he’s going places. Might be a… keeper.

    • BigHoss

      id go as far as maybe a “core” guy

      • 10thMountainFire

        Like Horsa.

        • BigHoss

          yeah i like dat horsa guy

        • CozBullsFan

          He’s learning from the best.

    • chidiver

      How’s his glove hand?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    The Sharks are on their heels, put them away.

    • 10thMountainFire

      Sharks don’t have heels. Lions don’t like water.

  • 2883

    Is someone out? The lines have been all kinds of scrambled, 88-65-25

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Q having fun.

      • Z-man19

        Had to happen sooner or later

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Settle down boys, we don’t need another kill.

    • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

      Well, we like the shorties

  • DesertHawk

    Handzus going after Kane, really?!

    • 2883

      Kane slashed Wingels

      • DesertHawk

        Yeah but Handzus is like twice Kane’s size, that’d be like Scott, when we had him, going after Oshie for slashing Bickell…

        • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

          I’ll allow it

    • 10thMountainFire

      In all honesty, dick move by Kaner.

      • CozBullsFan

        yup

      • DesertHawk

        He got cross-checked and checked after the whistle… I’ll allow it.

  • DuHawk

    PowerKill!!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    And another kill. Get your heads on straight, Hawks.

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    make up call

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Make up call for missing Kaners slash.

  • Flavius

    Obvious makeup call is obvious

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Make up call? Nice mullet, Burish!

  • zacked

    Ok guys I know the PK is awesome but don’t push it.

  • chidiver

    Is Foley mixing up Emery and Niemi? OR am I too sober to understand?

    • Z-man19

      Start drinking

      • chidiver

        If you insist…

    • putmeinthemadhouse

      hes done it a few times

    • 1benmenno

      He did

    • BigHoss

      its you being sober and foley being drunk

      • chidiver

        Well, there’s my shoutout chug

    • DesertHawk

      Too many Ms and Es and Y/Is for Foley to keep up.

    • Flavius

      Both?

    • ahnfire

      yes.

  • Flavius

    Good job Razor

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    why must we tempt fate so much?

  • Z-man19

    Captain was held

  • 10thMountainFire

    Ray Emery, hero.

  • Flavius

    Wingels Screen

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      It’s the only way to prevent wingles.

      • chidiver

        I just hope my insurance covers it

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Razor standing tall.

  • DuHawk

    Emery pretty solid again

    • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

      weak/flukey goal and then stands tall

  • Face of Boe

    razor has settled in nicely after a rough start

    • 10thMountainFire

      I wouldn’t say ‘rough’. He’s been solid throughout.

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        He’d like to have another chance at the GA.

        • Z-man19

          Concurred

      • zacked

        The sharks missed 3 wide open looks with Emery around the corner. He’s lucky not to give up 2 or 3 in the 1st.

      • Face of Boe

        early on, he was giving up rebounds and often didn’t seem to know where the puck was, I was worried about him for the first few minutes tonight

  • BigHoss

    emery is a good goalie

    • Flavius

      Imagine if he had a normal hip

      • BigHoss

        i dont wanna think about that

    • Daze55

      he’s been good for a while now

      • BigHoss

        i know im just pointing it out

        • Daze55

          Not saying that to be a dick just don’t think he gets the credit he deserves

          • BigHoss

            agreed

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    Rosey is really slow

  • JRF

    Is Bolland hurt?

    • BigHoss

      nahh just looking like it so he can slowly stalk his next victim

    • zacked

      No shifts since 16:00 in the 2nd.

      • Z-man19

        Seriously?

        • zacked
          • Z-man19

            Be nice if Pat noticed

          • 10thMountainFire

            I’d put that more in Edzo’s lane. Pat is calling the action.

          • Z-man19

            Someone, anyone, call it in XMF

      • JRF

        Yeah, Shaw’s been with the 2nd line all period. Just wondering.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Wow, did Saad change the energy levels or what?

    • Z-man19

      He does that

  • 1benmenno

    Frolik, C’est Chic

  • wowwowweewoo

    Haven’t sen bolland

    • BigHoss

      injured maybe?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    That’s it, Oduya, just clear the zone.

  • DuHawk

    Foot on the throat…keep it there

  • ballyb11

    Shut up, Foley.

  • justahawkfan

    I don’t think I’ve heard thornton’s name once all game.

    hahaha, fucker.

    • CozBullsFan

      That’s why we call him Passenger Joe.

    • BigHoss

      fuck that guy

      • 10thMountainFire

        Jonathan, you have a shift coming up. Pay attention to the game.

  • BigHoss

    debate 2010 secondary guys vs 2013 secondary guys

    2010:ladd buff steeg soupy bur sopel niemi huet kopecky eager frenchie

    2013:saad frolik bickell krugs bicks oduya leddy car bomb emery and bollig

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Ask again in four years. Look what Ladd Niemi Eager Buff and others are doing now. That team was better than anyone realizes.

    • zacked

      Ask again not during a game thread when there’s time to talk about it.

      But without thinking, I’d say 2010 just because more of those guys were in their prime. Also I’ve got a crush on Madden.

      • DesertHawk

        I’m pro 2010, because I’ll always love dat bufflin guy.

  • wowwowweewoo

    Saad has looked a lot more confident his last few shifts. It’s a good look on him. Also, how do you link your committedindian accout to disqus, cause it keeps asking me to sign in even though I already am?

    • 10thMountainFire

      He’s been confident all season.

      • Wowwowweewoo

        He’s looked great all year, but that was his first clean goal. That’s gotta be a big weight off his shoulders. He’ll be a world wrecker once he adds some muscle, sometimes he seems to get knocked around a little too easy.

    • Z-man19

      Little gear thingy on the right

      • 1benmenno

        Always giving someone the gears.

        • Z-man19

          You wanna go

          • 1benmenno

            Got my visor on

          • Z-man19

            Asshole

          • 1benmenno

            Yes, but not relevant.

          • Z-man19

            You’re in agony aren’t you?

          • 1benmenno

            in anticipation

          • Z-man19

            better now?

          • 1benmenno

            Getting better all the time.

          • Z-man19

            it is sweet isn’t it?

          • 1benmenno

            Yes!

          • DesertHawk

            Just don’t drop the gloves first.

          • Z-man19

            Careful, he’s a former SCHer

          • chidiver

            Is your sweater tied down?

    • 2883

      You have to create a disqus account, it does not create one for you, the committedindian account you signed up for was for the forums….

  • chidiver

    Okay. Drinking Few Barrel Aged Gin….outstanding!

    http://theginisin.com/gin-reviews/few-barrel-aged-gin/

  • 10thMountainFire

    There are a few Sharks I wouldn’t mind picking off of that roster, were they available.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Good core, no support.

      • 10thMountainFire

        I like Pavelski. He could play for me.

        • Z-man19

          Concur

        • BigHoss

          its actually pavelsteeg

          • CozBullsFan

            This!

      • chidiver

        My personal trainer keeps telling me that.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Stalls could have ended it.

  • Flavius

    Am I wearing fan glasses here? Or was that a blatant trip on Shaw right in front of the ref that went uncalled?

    • 2883

      Interference is what I would’ve called I was surprised on the no call

    • CozBullsFan

      I think he may have had a blowout.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Okay, four minutes to go. Take care of the puck. No brain farts, and no Stoopid Penalties.

  • 10thMountainFire

    This Taco Bell commercial pisses me the fuck off.

  • BigHoss

    i hate grande papi but i love big poppa

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Keep your foot on the gas!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    20-19-81

    • 10thMountainFire

      The way it should be. How many shifts did Carcillo skate with Panda and Marvel?

      • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

        too many

      • CozBullsFan

        More than 0 is too many.

        • 10thMountainFire

          I had no issue with Carcillo on the first line until Saad exploded in the first few games. It’s a good problem to have but Saad is easily the answer there.

          • ahnfire

            Carcillo belongs on 3 or 4. I still don’t think Carcillo is a good fit on the first.

          • Z-man19

            Preach it Ahn

          • 10thMountainFire

            I didn’t have as much a problem with him on the first line when he had his periods of skating very well last season but I am in total agreement with you. But at this point, other than Bollig, who sits on 3 or 4 in favor of Car Bomb? I couldn’t make that call.

          • ahnfire

            I understand, but often the argument is that people want Carcillo on the 1st line because the argument is that he’s a crash&banger that will open up space for 19&81. However, Saad is doing the same thing only with a much higher hockey IQ, so there really is no need for 13 on that line.

          • 10thMountainFire

            100% agreement. Saad is the best of all worlds, really. I don’t see any weakness in his game. The puck will eventually find the net for him… everything else is just awesome for that kid.

        • Z-man19

          Fucking right

    • 2883

      The Seriously Saad Panda.

      • http://whatisthebestadverb.wordpress.com/ I am not Chico Maki

        I havens seen this before … it’s a good one.

    Bicks has been playing hard tonight

  • BigHoss

    i think foley just called him pavelsteeg haha

  • zacked

    IN-SOOR-ANTS! IN-SOOR-ANTS!

  • DuHawk

    I hate to say this…but I wanna see the trap

    • ahnfire

      NO.

    • CozBullsFan

      hell no!

    • chidiver

      Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein!

      • 1benmenno

        Nyet!

    • 10thMountainFire

      What da fuck?

    • Z-man19

      You’re no DH

    • BigHoss

      i dont get it

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      No scotch for you.

    • 2883

      IT’S A TARP!

    • ahnfire

      and to follow up, so you don’t feel like you’re being piled up on, why on earth would you want that?

    • DuHawk

      Sorry…Captain has curbed my judgment…just wanna keep them outta our zone

      • CozBullsFan

        No worries! Every time the Hawks play a trap game when they are up, it blows up in their face.

      • DesertHawk

        We’re so terribad at the trap though. We don’t actually keep them out of our end

      • ahnfire

        I understand that feeling…the only problem is, like other people have said, the Hawks are just TERRIBLE at the trap.

        • DuHawk

          New plan…to the hills!!!

          • ahnfire

            are the hills inside the opponent’s net? I approve of that.

    • DesertHawk

      I’ll take thing’s I’d never say for 1000 please.

  • 1benmenno

    Kaner really hustling.

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    Does Saad have a nose for the puck or what???

  • Z-man19

    Shaw

  • Flavius

    How in the fuck do you not call that TACKLE of Shaw right in front of the ref?

    • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

      It was Shaw

    • Z-man19

      Unknown

  • Flavius

    Go fuck yourself, Clowe

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Should be a penalty on the Sharks.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Er, unless they hit Shaw for boarding,……

  • BigHoss

    fuck ryan clown

  • DesertHawk

    No bueno Shaw.

  • ahnfire

    ok, that was a stupid hit Shaw, but awww Seabs going MamaBear

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    shaw you are such a dumbass. i saw that happen in real time. fucking idiot

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    What did I just say about STOOPID PENALTIES?

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    Fuck you, Sharks.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Shaw was gonna go, Clowe made it a 4×4

  • BigHoss

    History is re written

  • Flavius

    That’s a record, kids!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    And, HISTORY

  • 2883

    How is that not a 2 penalties against Clowe, Instigation and Too Much Man?>

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      He’s nowhere near enough man,.

      • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

        too much clown

        • Z-man19

          nice

    • DesertHawk

      He left the bench too I think. Nonetheless that was a really really shitty hit on Shaw’s part.

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Cue the dagger!

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    wow

    • Z-man19

      does anyone else have a problem with HH’s comments not coming up on the board? I only get them after I refresh

      • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

        fucking disqus is oppressing me, man.

      • Accipiter

        Yes, he has two accounts.

        • Z-man19

          Really, how does that explain his comments not showing up?

          • Accipiter

            It doesn’t.

          • Z-man19

            Oh, well since you put it that way

  • Z-man19

    Fucking yes

    Wooo Hawks!!!

    Ahhhh the sweet sound of the Dagger

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I’ve got to be dreaming. There is no way this team is 14-0-3.

    We have no goalie
    Our PP sucks
    Our PK sucks
    We have no 2C
    Q has lost it.
    Q and Stan don’t get along
    Stan won’t make the big trade…..

      • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

        Might as well. He does everything else like one, too.

          • BigHoss

            hes a paste eater though

          • DesertHawk

            Maybe Zed has a surplus of paste. Did you ever think of that?

          • BigHoss

            no i cant say i have

          • Z-man19

            think before you speak, DH only the Canadians call me Zed

          • 1benmenno

            Because they know their alphabet.

          • Z-man19

            see what you started, the Irish are calling me Zed now

          • mightymikeD

            despite the best efforts of Sesame Street, I’ll always think “Zed” rather than “Zee”

          • Z-man19

            Maybe I’ll change my name to Zedkey

          • ahnfire

            Sesame Street is ashamed of you.

          • Z-man19

            Thanks for defending me Ahn, lots of love for you

          • Flavius

            You’re the nice one, right?

          • chidiver

            We prefer “less mean”

          • DesertHawk

            No that’s Stacie.

          • Accipiter

            This banning brought to you by the letter ….

          • ahnfire

            hahahahahahahaha…what?

          • mightymikeD

            and the Europeeens…

            Damn Commies

          • DesertHawk

            Keepin ya on your toes.

          • mightymikeD

            it’s pronounced “Taves”

          • DesertHawk

            I was tempted to put Toews.

          • Accipiter

            He’s Mexican ?

        • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

          Duz French still haz Our Best GOALY???

  • BigHoss

    even though i wasnt with you guys when we won the stanley cup. id just like to say its been a fun season with you guys so far

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I was lurking on SCH in 2009-10, afraid to post for fear of being a jinx,

      • BigHoss

        i didnt know it existed in 09-10

        • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

          Its definitely been a fun, long journey. I started SCH when the playoffs started or thereabouts. I was tired of chatting on the illegal stream feed chats. It was like chatting in Yahoo/Puck Daddy comments.

      • DesertHawk

        This will be the second time my wife is deployed during the SCF… last time we won the Cup. SCH/TCI has helped keep me sane.

        • BigHoss

          see we are kind of like a family on here

          • Accipiter

            Gang, actually.

          • DesertHawk

            Yeah, once you’re in the only way out is by way of beating.

          • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

            or some of Stacie’s ‘koolaid’

          • chidiver

            La Famiglia

          • mightymikeD

            “Manson” rather than “Carter” though

          • Z-man19

            heh

  • Accipiter

    No pants 14-0-3.

    • Z-man19

      sure, now you show up

      • Accipiter

        You missed me ?

        • DesertHawk

          He needed you to verify some of my words.

          • Z-man19

            ONE of your words

          • DesertHawk

            Did my link suffice?

          • Z-man19

            I was on my Ipad, too slow to check links, besides Jave delivers right to the thread

          • DesertHawk

            It means of or pertaining to syntax…

          • Z-man19

            What’s syntax? :P

          • DesertHawk

            I’m gonna keep calling you Zed.

          • Accipiter

            Good, good.

          • Z-man19

            Where’d that other DH go, I like him better

          • Flavius

            nice shot

          • DesertHawk

            Hey you keep questioning my Engrish, I’m gonna revert to calling you Zed :P Would Zero be a more acceptable phonetic?

          • Z-man19

            I failed Hooked on Phonics so no

          • DesertHawk

            Was that no you won’t quit questioning, or no I can’t call you Zero?

          • Z-man19

            Who is questioning your English? I’ve been called worse

          • DesertHawk

            You! You were!!!!

          • chidiver

            I believe its “nought”

          • DesertHawk

            Zulu is the US military phonetic for Z, would that be better Z?

          • chidiver

            So what is “zulu”?

          • DesertHawk

            I think it’s an African tribe.

          • chidiver

            Mardi Gras krewe

          • chidiver

            What I meant to say…I thought z=zulu

          • DesertHawk

            It does. I fucked up, see above.

          • Accipiter

            It is used when referring to time. “Zulu” time is that which you might know as “GMT” (Greenwich Mean Time). Our natural concept of time is linked to the rotation of the earth and we define the length of the day as the 24 hours it takes the earth to spin once on its axis.

          • DesertHawk

            That’s still just another military usage though. Not the actual definition of Zulu.

          • Z-man19

            That’s what I’m talking about DH, it’s like wikaccipiter

          • DesertHawk

            The googles failed me. I couldn’t remember proper radio for Z, and looked it up… I was lied to. That should read Zulu, which is the correct term. My brain is way more trustworthy than the googles.

          • Z-man19

            So I should be questioning your English? Jave never fails btw

          • DesertHawk

            I feel me and A are gonna have to have a word duel.

          • Z-man19

            I’ve got 5-1 on A, who’s in?

      • 1benmenno

        Difficult to type with no pants on

        • chidiver

          Faster spacebar

      • BigHoss

        haha

    • steeg of their own

      You do realize that you are doomed to go pantsless all the way through April?

      • Accipiter

        It’s only going to get warmer.

        • steeg of their own

          That’s the spirit!

    • Flavius

      I will be very disappointed to see you with your pants on

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    rallytots is rallying

  • DuHawk

    I don’t want to pull a Konroyd…but what’s the record for most consecutive games without a loss?? 25-30ish??

    • DesertHawk

      35 we’re at 23.

      • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

        that’s pretty much impossible. It would be almost the entire season.

        • DesertHawk

          Which is why a few games ago I said, hey if we break that record, maybe we can go undefeated all season :D

          • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

            I’ve entertained the thought as well. I also think the streak is now superfluous. Just want to see the Hawks hoist the Silver Grail from here.

          • DesertHawk

            Just keep winning Just keep winning Just keep winning winning winning.

      • putmeinthemadhouse

        what year was that set

        • DesertHawk

          sometime in the 70s

          • putmeinthemadhouse

            so thats counting two seasons right?

          • DesertHawk

            I’m not sure, but I think possibly.

        • Flavius

          1980 Flyers, according to these folks, who have already updated the Blackhawks’ NEW RECORD

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NHL_records_(team)

          • birdhead

            Q mentioned that Flyers team after morning skate today. Journos asked him about record streaks etc during his career and he brought them up and said “I think we played them around the 33rd game … didn’t break the streak.” Then he giggled and it was kind of adorable.

          • DesertHawk

            The stache allows Q to do adorable things? It’s power must be weakening.

          • Accipiter

            Did you know that he shouts “NO ONE LIKES WINNING MORE THAN I DO” repeatedly as the team walks back to the locker room after the games?

          • birdhead

            I actually find Q adorable a statistically significant amount of the time. I think it’s because he reminds me of my high school physics teacher (same ‘stache) who was genuinely adorable, but also he (Q) can be pretty funny with the press in post-practice interviews.

  • DesertHawk

    Crazy skate injuries this year… somebody got their femoral cut!

    • Accipiter

      On the Jets. More than 2 hrs of surgery !!

      • Z-man19

        That’s gonna leave a scar

        • justahawkfan

          girls love

      • DesertHawk

        They had to graft another vein on!

    • chidiver

      I’m surprised it doesn’t happen more often. Large men with razors on their feet running into each other.

      • DesertHawk

        I’ve always been kinda surprised at that too. Karlsson is sour about the achilles thing.

        • chidiver

          Sour Swede

        • Z-man19

          I would be too

          • DesertHawk

            Oh yeah. It’s just weird cause they’re usually so reserved in press meetings. They being hockey dudes.

        • Accipiter

          Really got his berries in a twist.

          • DesertHawk

            is the consensus that Cooke would be that much of a douche? or are we all assuming it was an unfortunate accident?

          • chidiver

            My opinion
            Cooke run…maybe
            Sliced him on purpose…not likely

          • DesertHawk

            That’s kinda what I’m thinking. Karlsson basically said he thinks Cooke cut him on purpose… Just curious if others felt that way.

          • Accipiter

            In the presser I saw Karlsson said he didn’t believe it was something Cooke tried to do (cutting him).

          • DesertHawk

            I must have missed that chunk. I saw him basically saying you have to expect that sort of stuff when you’re on the ice with cooke.

          • Accipiter

            He was referring to being hit/interfered with, “targeted” as he put it.

          • DesertHawk

            Ah. Thanks for clearing that up, definitely didn’t catch the whole thing then.

          • Z-man19

            more evidence :D

          • DesertHawk

            I said duel of words not paying attention to things!

          • Accipiter

            I concede, you know lots of languages IIRC.

          • DesertHawk

            Actually only two… I just like words/languages so I tend to look stuff up, and have a pretty ok vocabulary.

          • Accipiter

            I know two as well, damn I spoke to soon.

          • Z-man19

            fucking right A, get in there, I’ve got money on you

          • Flavius

            None of my business, but…..it’s important to pay attention to things.

          • Z-man19

            I don’t know why Cooke would raise his skate up like that, but I can’t see how he could intentionally do that

          • DesertHawk

            It’s a level of crazy that I just can’t believe he’d go to.

          • Z-man19

            I have a hard time believing anyone in the NHL would go there

          • Accipiter

            Even Karlsson doesn’t believe he cut him purposely, but thinks Cooke was targeting him. Karlsson needs to get used to it, he is THAT good and will targeted by someone on most teams.

          • DesertHawk

            Til the NHL gets their shit together.

          • Z-man19

            he might be retired by then

          • DesertHawk

            Sadly true…

    • CR64

      I’m just hoping everyday that nobody slices an aorta. I just watched the Malarchuk clip… As a goalie it freaks me out every time.

      • DesertHawk

        Can’t watch it… saw it once on accident. Never again.

      • Accipiter

        I saw Rick Jeanneret (sabres commentator) talk about the Malarchuk and the Richard Zednik incidents and how difficult it was to watch and have to do play by play when the player could have possibly died.

  • mightymikeD

    Unless I’m horribly mishtook… this is the first Sweep of an opponent this season?

    • BigHoss

      yes

    • Z-man19

      also the first opportunity to sweep, more to follow

    • Flavius

      Havlat plays hard every shift in all zones….hard to hang an “A” or a “C” there with his injury history, but it is stunning how many Sha-arks just fade and disappear in tough games….

      • chidiver

        He was very noticeable today along with Pavelsteeg. The rest…not so much.

  • Flavius

    Kuc just tweeted it’s a UBI for Bolland

    • DesertHawk

      Fucking upper bodies… we should have them removed from all our players. They’d be indestructible.

      • Flavius

        Hope he’s ok, needless to say….Bolly’s upper body has some history

      • Joe Banks

        If you did, everyone would be an ASS – not just Vancouver.

        • DesertHawk

          I’m thinking rayman style with a torso attached to arms and legs by strands of energy… that way if you’re checked illegally your torso just kinda shimmies out of the way.

    • ahnfire

      I missed what happened – did anyone see the play that took Bolly out?

      • Flavius

        I didn’t see it either

        • ahnfire

          :| did anyone? or did Bolly just stop showing up on the ice?

          • Z-man19

            just disappeared, last I saw him is when he went to the sin bin late in the second I think

      • DesertHawk

        Nope

    • putmeinthemadhouse

      damnit.

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    I suggest not going over to Fear the Fin. It’s depressing.

  • BigHoss

    we play columbus on sunday yay! streak continues or is it a trap? you be the one who decides

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      It’s a super duper trap. Feeling all warm and fuzzy, only playing Columbus…. We’re doomed.

  • Flavius

    Toews 15 of 19 at the dot….Captain Thornton only took six draws, winning 2

    • DesertHawk

      Clearly we have the superior leader

    • Accipiter

      15 out of 19, is that good ?

      • DesertHawk

        Above the Bolland line.

      • Flavius

        That’s considered good, yes

      • Flavius

        Seriously, though….and ignoring the fact I can’t stand Thornton….it’s weird he wears the “C”, plays the position, is the highest paid player on the team, and doesn’t start the game and McClellan apparently doesn’t have faith to give him more than 6 draws,

        • Accipiter

          Maybe he has a boo-boo.

          • Flavius

            A boo-boo is a possible explanation

  • BigHoss
    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      That is so wrong on so many levels. Like watching a train wreck. :)

  • Joe Banks

    Woo Hoo! Go Hawks!

  • mightymikeD

    Damn! Lindy Ruff… Dignified like a MF

    • Z-man19

      There’s a guy who wants to coach again, he definitely handled that well

    • DesertHawk

      Why’d he get sacked? Sabres’ coach right?

      • mightymikeD

        because the Sabres are shit… but then again, when haven’t they been shit?

        • Accipiter

          98/99.

          • mightymikeD

            I believe Brontosaurs were roaming the earth then (no, not John Scott)

          • ahnfire

            Murdersaurus?

          • zacked

            They were pretty damn good in 05-06 and 06-07, but couldn’t get over the edge. And they were young, too, but most of the players haven’t progressed since then, they got completely fucked by poachers (Drury, Briere and SCH Binky Soupy were all offered ridiculous contracts ensuring that none of the 3 could be retained. I don’t think any franchise has involuntarily lost so many key players in a short time period like that. Vanek signed the most ridiculous (i.e. Kevin Lowe’s) offer sheet in history), and Golisano’s cost-cutting moves (like firing most of the scouting staff) caused the great talent pipeline to dry up.

            So yeah, imagine if the ‘hawks were blown up in the ’08-’09 off-season instead of the ’09-’10 and it’s kind of how this generation of Sabres have fared.

            Anyway, Ruff is a decent coach and he’ll get another job as soon as he wants one, but it was time for a change. They should have done it last off-season to be respectful and make a clean break, and they should have sent Darcy Tucker with him. Not that either are failures, just that it’s been 16 years, and management always has a shelf-life.

      • Z-man19

        cuz the owner spent a load of cash and they no win

        • DesertHawk

          Bummer. His fault, or owners spending money on the wrong dudes?

          • Accipiter

            Leino ?

          • Z-man19

            The GM, but something is amiss in Buf. I haven’t seen them play enough to say a lot but for the money, the owner isn’t getting what he’s paid for. As Acci says below they signed Leino to a big contract and I think he spent time on the 4th line last year and might have been a healthy scratch a time or two

          • birdhead

            Bit of both right? The off-season moves were an overreaction to getting their goalie run by Milan Lucic but the roster isn’t *that* bad.

          • Flavius

            Ville Leino is signed through 2017 at $4.5 million per…..Christian Ehrhoff $4 million through 2021….they might have fired the wrong guy

    • BigHoss

      why what did he say?

      • mightymikeD

        just paid tribute to the org where he spent the last decade and a bit.. a gentleman.

        • BigHoss

          class act, its not his fault he was given no offensive talent

          • Accipiter

            Vanek would like to have a word. I think the D was more the problem, especially in the 3rd.

  • Accipiter

    Did you know that Q shouts “NO ONE LIKES WINNING MORE THAN I DO” repeatedly as the team walks back to the locker room after the games ?

    • DesertHawk

      Not sure if serious.

      • Accipiter

        I saw today during the aired “morning skate”, was one of the unknown facts. Serious.

        • birdhead

          SEE? ADORABLE

    • ahnfire

      yup! they showed it in one of the BHTV things last year. I think it was one of the behind the scenes ones, with either the strength trainer or the asst equipment manager, I think…

  • BigHoss

    alright guys i gotta sleep see you later

    • DesertHawk

      SLEEP!! It’s for sleepy people!!!

    • ahnfire

      g’night!

      • Accipiter

        More niceness !

        • Z-man19

          may be time for a change in who the nice one is?
