- no news is not good news around these parts, since (in my opinion) every day that sutter(s) is still at the helm kinda bugs me.... in saying that, nothing bugs me like the pink jersey.... except for when one of my favorite player's sisters shows up at the rink with one. *shudder*
- so, the season's over, the flames shit the bed and vancouver won the conference... it's a pretty disgusting time at the dome. i wonder if the hitmen get knocked out in the next days (if they haven't already, i'm not really paying attention), whether ken king will be looking for a new job. rumour has it that his insistance on keeping tabs on all of the goings-on around the dome ---from ownership this-and-thats right down to popcorn-making--- is starting to piss everyone off.... too bad the org is making a fuckton™ of money cause i don't imagine he's going anywhere.
- evander kane lived up to his given name and absolutely rocked matt cooke's world last night... i know i'm late to the game but i thought i'd weigh in (pun intended): it's kindof a scary set of punches to the head of one of the nhl's most hated. don waddell would be an idiot to trade him but i bet he could have his pick of boston players right now if he was willing to deal the kid.... keep your eyes on the jersey fouls over at puckdaddy ----i presume we'll see a boatload of #19s show up at the mellon centre any second now. there isn't currently one on the roster so why not ?
-iggy's taking a lot of heat these days and came out and said he wants to stay. true or not, it is what the media training tells a player he HAS to say in such situations.... unless your name is patrick roy. or chris pronger.
-yellowknife is kinda cool, except there's no bars open on sundays (boston pizza excepted). actually, pretty much nothing is open on sundays... but i ate here and it was amazing. another thing i learned about the NWT is that if you try to drive there from calgary, you have to cross the mackenzie river between enterprise and fort providence.... in the winter there's an ice bridge, and in the summer there's a ferry.... then (right about this time of year) they shut the road down but the ferry hasn't started yet.... i think it looks a bit like this. two of my crew drove across that mofo.
i want to write more but i can't right now.
