NHL - November 2014

Recommended Posts

I know it was only 2-0 for the Devils but tonight's "effort" from the Oilers crossed all boundaries of unacceptable.

 

Yet another year we're eliminated from the playoffs before December.

 

Petry and Marincin might be the only players tonight to escape scathing hellfire. And our coach doesn't think Marincin is good enough to start regularly over Keith Aulie or the corpse of Nikita Nikitin.

 

Fuck me.

Lost in all that, how often do you ever see a fight of any kind in overtime? Bizarre.

Waiting at the Greyhound station in DC for bus back to New York. Had a hell of a night here with a large and vocal contingent of fellow Sabres fans. Outshot by a 2-1 margin and we managed to pull it out. 3 game winning streak!

What a kick in the nuts if you're an Oilers fan with CBC cutting straight from that embarassment to Calgary tying it up with hard work with less than 10 seconds left.

 

Bob Cole unaware he was on the air after OT ended just called the shootout "a stupid rule". Amazing.

The suckiest bunch of sucks who ever sucked.  The Edmonton Oilers.

 

There's sort of this pushback online in recent years against things like "leadership" and "character" but the Oilers clearly have very little. They just fold and accept their lot in life as a shitty team so easily. I think you gotta split up the core. Freshen it up, get some guys in there who aren't accustomed to losing.

 

They've sucked for so long now yet they don't have nearly the amount of talent you'd expect. RNH and Hall.  That's really it in terms of stuff you can't acquire through trade or free agency.

I hope they don't ruin McDavid. Let the Sabres do their best to ruin him but the Oilers have done their damage.

Yeah the fans of that club deserve better, and you can't blame them for expressing it. 

 

Rangers v. Canadiens on NHL Network tonight at 7.  This should be good.  I've got two half gallons of Oberweis egg-nog I have to drink before they expire tomorrow, so need to get cracking during this game.

I have nothing more to really say on the state of the Oilers at the moment. It's all been said, it's all there for everyone to see.

 

Everything is wrong, and it's not going to be fixed soon either.

Best thing about Verizon Center: they have a $9 souvenir soda that includes unlimited refills. Most places charge $7-$8 and don't even give you one refill, let alone unlimited ones. Actually not a bad place to watch a game, kind of like a cross between WFC and First Niagra.

RIP Pat Quinn. One of the best Leaf coaches in my lifetime, and first Canadian Olympic Gold-winning coach in my lifetime. I worked for MLSE while he coached, and the few times our paths crossed, he was really cool. Godspeed.

Pat Quinn was a big chunk of my childhood.

I'm baffled that I didn't already know this, but Quinn was the guy coaching the Flyers when they made their 35 unbeaten games in a row run. That's a record that might never fall.
