The Stretch Drive...

Forget Zack and the Bingo guys it's time for your top six to step up and grab us a play off spot...

"Andy" is ready to do his thing...

"Karl" and his mate have to tighten it up just a quarter turn...

I'd play Foligno in the top six...

Carks plays a lot on the way home...

#4's hands have finally steadied...

Jared and "Gonch" just seem to pick up the pace as required, keep 'er goin'...

We all love Alex but it's time for the "Big Kid" Bingo is no place for him now...

For now Boston, at home, is a practice but after that we gotta be in every game!

The Company Men!

Ya know who really annoys me almost as much as these small time incompetent Refs, are the "Company Men", Versage, York, Galley, Millen, Healy...guys, who have been around it and through it for years...and on both sides of it...telling us it all evens out...there is no big market bias...the REFs are doing a fair job...these dull, non-street smart, blinkered, fawning followers should be told to "STFU" if you do not want to be objective or truthful don't say anything!

Note: How long it has taken Coach Paul to drop the Detroit glow and to start to defend his players!

Note: Anyone who has played a little knows it only takes "ONE" call not three or four to completely turn the momentum of a game.  I think we should have had, as tired as we were, at least 5 maybe 6 points out of those untalented Left Coast Type Teams...we actually did beat the best one out there!

Note: I think Zack suffered a concussion and is still trying to play through it!

Poor ol' "Karl!"

"EriK" flubs one, goes the wrong way and then gets accused of "Diving" by these Tranna centric League Officials. Remember these are the guys who put the puck on it's edge for TV time outs when the puck is bouncing all over like an Indian Rubber Ball.

Their goalie caught some luck and ours didn't!

The Ducks are a good one line team, sometimes, if they are fresh, one line teams are tough to beat. It's funny how easy the games become when you are out of it.

Phillips plays well so Kuba takes the night off...

Why dress Carks and then go with 5 Defencemen?

If Alfie blocks one more shot I'm telling Hugo on him.

Petersson, our human bullet, needs to play with the big guys.

Jason...I know the system has you high in your own zone but be more pro-active, play a little "hard" defence once in a while.

9mm is feeling the eyes of California on him.

Saturday, January 21, 2012

The "Daug" plays...

Ya don't change a winning line up except for injury...

The "Daug" plays only if you don't have to freeze him...

Zach goes only if the trainers plural OK it!

I'd give Pete Petersson a shot with Jason, moving 9mm to Turris and then moving him (9mm) back and let Alfie perform his magic on the human bullet...

We still like Foligno/Neil/Z-man as the 4th line but playing 12 to 15 minutes. Anytime you can save Spezza/Alfie/Turris a little playoff enery it's a bonuus!

Surround Zack (if he goes this afternoon) with his Bingo Brethren (Cons/Daug/Butts)...

The Ducks will fly early...

The "Super SENS" will finish 'em late!

It's time to see what ya got!

To Coach Paul:

Before Bryan Murray (three weeks) can recommend someone new to Eugene we must see what we actually have on hand...

Andre Petersson has to play top six and he has to fit right away so put him in tonight with Uncle Alfie.

Borocop, I think, is already penciled in as our sixth defenceman for the stretch run. He has to be the spark to light Chris Phillips' fire or we go all the way playing 4 defencemen most of the game?

#14; #19; #9...size/skill

#20; #7; #11...speed/finesse

#23; #15; #22...Calder Cuppers re-united

#71; #28; #25...what a play off 4th line...a difference maker!

#17; #65

#2; #55

#4; #74

#41...and eventually #40

Trap Game!

Oh, we are still so vulnerable when we are not ready mentally...

Jason starts us off...then cannot win a face off all night...

Alfie was a step late all night and he had the chances...

9mm's worst game as a SEN...

Neil is just not an offensive player anywhere on the ice...

"Karl"was sleeping for most of the game...

The LINESMEN were horseshit tonight, I think it was one of the guys who puts the puck on it's edge during time outs?

Tough one "Andy" but let us hope that your team mates show up in TRANNA!

Let's Nitpick!

Great game boys, Alfie, Andy, Jason, Kyle et al!

But the Coaching...Jason killing two minutes of PK when we have the best in League on the bench (fresh) and Spezza is now playing every minute of the power play. What is Jason (25 minutes), 9mm (25 minutes) and Karl (30 minutes) doing out there in the dying seconds of the game...did we not already try and discard this idea earlier on in the season. (Make the same play over and over looking for a different result). It's bad coaching gentlemen, when you have Zack, Kyle and Z-man as your other centers. We all know "Karl" is a super star but the other guys know how to attack him late in the game, they box him out of his own box offensively or trap him in the corner. If there was one guy who should have been on the ice it was "Carks" standing on guard for "Andy" in front of our net. Have none of you ever tried to jam a late goal past a huge, ugly defenceman? Foligno is our best checker with out the puck in all three zones...he should have been out there.

Elite coaches don't make these kinds of "Ego" mistakes. Jason does not have to be stroked his confidence level is just fine. Montreal should not have got a point out of this one.

"You owe me one!

Andy, ya owe me one. Last Habs game as I sat surrounded by Habs fans sitting in the Molson box proudly wearing my Heritage sweater. You guys completely laid an egg...ya made Price look like the reincarnation of George Vezina. The Montreal fans thought they were at a clinic or a hockey school some where in Gatineau...

So we want Price's head on a platter, show these guys no mercy they would do the same for you. No smiles or laughing from PK tonight. Cunneyworth is a great guy but he hasn't got the pieces there to beat us so lets just systematically take 'em apart.

SENs win 4-1.

"Remember the Alamo! or is it MSG!

First game @ MSG...we are up one nothin', skatin' 'em into the ice...PPG...PPG...Rangers up 2-1. We get 40 shots and have to beat 'em in overtime...ZEBRA ALERT!

Lundqvist loves our Swedes, he thinks he can out think us...Alfie and "Karl" have news for him...this time everything goes in just under the bar!

Jason is finally ready for the bright lights of ol''s his team now! (with Alfie)

The League reporters, the Tranna guys, have not caught up to how good we are yet...they don't really know us or how good "Karl" is. How fast Kyle is. How tough "Andy" is. How young Alfie "feels". How responsible Jason is. How improved Kuba is. How strong 9mm is. How skilled Foligno is. How hard Zack can shoot. How tough mentally Cons is. How perfect our "Cyborg" is.

Note: I think the prognosticators on the Senators Prediction Panel...STINK! If any of you were betting with the Bookie...he'd own your car by now! SENs win 4 to 1.

The Law of Humanity!

Galley says the guys are trying to "hurt" you when you they hit. And we better admit it and get used to it.  What about intent to injure?? It's a major penalty!

You guys, Yorkie, Chum, Kipreos and you, the Alumni, are starting to fall all over yourselves trying to defend over the line, dirty, dangerous plays. That's why we the fans get so many "crazy" over the top explanations for some of the more "brutal" hits!

You don't think Dave Steckel didn't meant to hit Sid and hurt him or that immature Goof for the Rangers, who concussed Alfie...Gary Galley, ya can't hit guys like that anymore, it's against the Law of Humanity!

You guys all coach and teach hockey school for kids...ya can't propagandize this type of play on national TV or local radio's bullshit!

Hope the Whites are "real" clean!

Congrats boys, you guys are starting to believe...I was one of the very few that never had doubt. "Andy" only goalies know how tough you really are!

We are going to have to play our cleanest road game of the season against the broken Penguins. They already get 15 more and 38 less for an advantage of almost two full games over half a season. Some say well it's only 4 you know how big four points are going to be? Mario needs a win bad for the home town fans so I'd practice the PK not the PP tomorrow.

Notice how in every case that even though you pass the baseline testing and you are cleared to play it takes 4-5-6 games to get back up to speed...think about it...Alfie...9mm...even Gonch and now Chris Phillips...I don't think he should even be out there right now trying to play through it. These guys, these valuable assets, are/were very vulnerable to great injury, greater trauma.

So forget all the League and leadership (BOG) bullsh&t, Bryan start holding them out until they are ready...that goes for Winchester, there is no need to rush him back. Look at Sid...and that big "intentional" clown in Tranna should get life with no parole! That "Goof" that hit Alfie knew exactly what he was doing!

Memo to Coach Paul!

Played on a very experienced older team, our much lauded International Coach would think nothing of once he gave you the tap and told you to change on the fly...of holding your shoulder or even your sweater until the man you were replacing was approximately 10 feet from the bench. It just gave everyone a second chance in case the puck came toward your bench or the "arsehole", who was supposed to come off, decides to stay on and play the puck!

Note: Now I know that this is the "Show" but clearly you have a problem which stems from you. That's you plural, the coaching staff!

Note 2: That one time you cheat and break up a rush or get the advantage of the other team is far out weighed by the number of short handed goals resulting from TMMOTI Penalties!

He's comin' to our rink @ the park!

Danny Briere, he is comin' to our rink @ the park. It's not Philly or Gatineau, it's Ottawa.This gifted, lucky, little, local hockey player, who would not think of playing in Montreal or Ottawa for that matter...the pressure, the taxes and now the ex wife(?) will have to come and play in our barn today. Note: He got a lot tougher when he went from Buffalo to Philadelphia. I think we should give him a little extra attention. The three center rotation to start with as he spends the majority of his shifts coming back late or hiding and hangin' around our net. Then ya tell him about his Hat Trick, he fans creating a BS change up rebound, a second goal Chris Phillips knock in for him and the last one because he stays late hiding behind the net...he didn't deserve to score one let alone three. And to finish it because he likes to play hard on the young guys Jared Cowen should commit to him behind the net and squash the bastard then we shall see how many groin hooks he throws after that!

"We was robbed!"

The ZEBRA management of the momentum swings of this game was orchestrated like an impresario!

I think the Philly fans still intimidate the Refs.

Pronger's legacy...teaching these punks to act and play like cheatin', chirpin', dirty little rats!

This was a classic example of...if you commit an infraction on every play, they cannot call 'em all.

How do these thugs, these bullies, get 36 minutes of PP time more than us?

Chris Phillips, when you make a mistake you have to correct it...Paul, he is not a 4 on 4 player anymore!

"Karl" is not at his absolute best in afternoon games and he still got two assists?

When Butts scores and Neil is going past the puck looking for the big hit...switch 'em up!

#19 and #14 have lost their connection, Jason expects too much on defence from Colin and then ignores him on offense.

Coach Paul, the TMMOTI PENALTY, is on you, SIR...start grabbing sweaters and holding guys on the bench...

Andy, we do it all over again tomorrow!

Note: Old Goal Tender axiom..."If ya don't know where it is don't move and open yourself up!"

We don't get pushed around today!

Our Defence is bigger than theirs.

Andrej Meszaros is very good but vulnerable.

Flyers put Mat Walker on waivers and they only have 5 defencemen. No Timonen but to recall Erik Gustafsson; Swedes are hot these days.

Laviolette will be trying to line match as teams of late have trouble when we just roll 'em out one through four, one after another.

Andy is playing well enough to get the bounce.

We might even see "Bob!"

This is where we see if we really have enough "Road Game" to weather the early storm.

If "Andy" has to play both ends of the weekend,  ya gotta bring up the "Kid" NOW!

Everyone must keep their stick down, we are still the most penalized team in the league deserved or not.

"Karl" you're on!

"Yorkie" you're all washed up!

Have seen York come and go. He must have sleep walked with blinkers on through out his entire career. Some of the opinions and thoughts on the game that Jason, Chum and Brian Burke try to foist on the every day fan are just plain "crazy" and the fact that they have two-thirds of the fans, players and insiders believing them is sad..."VERY SAD!"

Wake up, boys...Chris Phillips got bumped four (4) count 'em for 9mm and he's a human tank.
Alfie can work through the groin and his back but that gutless head shot out of nowhere knocking you senseless...who needs it?

Thought for the day...the second shot is damage to the "already" damaged brain...your brain doesn't heal that fast...I know and it was admitted to me by the doctor!

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Guessing "Borocop" first call up!

Coach Paul will most likely ask for Mark Borowiecki...but Ottawa might be told to call on Patrick Wiercioch, the Merit Principle. My favourite is 6'4" 225lbs Eric Gryba, who cannot catch a break with this organization and will probably be moving on if the "Status Quo" remains in place!

There is no rush for Winchester, the "Daug" has Bingo karma going for him. Ya don't change a winner if you don't have to.

"Andy" just out played the best goalie in the game tonight.

We have got to find some extra duties for "Karl"...34 minutes and he is not even breathing hard! Then again we could just go with 5 D and play #65 for forty minutes.

If there is one thing that Coach Paul can start a rant @ Wednesday's practice is this "Good ole boys" pass the puck to your bud when you are staring at the best scoring chance of the night...shoot the puck on the net!

Butts is starting to get himself in position to score...the big shooters will tell you it's only a matter of time.

Butts has got to score!

Re: No passengers.

If we are to make the playoffs Butts has got to score. As he has demonstrated in games played at his speed and penalty shots when he has that extra nano-second he can really sink 'em! This is re-enforced by the number of posts hit @ ultra high speed. With his pay check he ain't goin' down so when Winchester comes back old #16 has got to stay in the line up because he represents the potential of more goals than either "Daug" (at this point) or Winchester. Now, the problem is where to play him...where he has at least a chance to make a play/score a goal on his own time.

I think we beat Marty tonight!
