Hurricanes take game 1

I'll try to keep it short tonight, because, well, I'm exhausted. About the game: what a motherf****g good game. Of course, it didn't end the way I would've liked, but if this series continues to be played the same way, this will be the best Stanley Cup Finals in years.

With the Oilers leading 3-0 towards the end of the second period, I thought the game was pretty much in the bag. But I was wrong... way wrong. Still, don't believe the headlines. Doug Weight played once again heroically, yet Rod Brind'Ashit will get all the headlines again. The fact is, both of his goals were fluke goals, goals that even I could've scored: you know, the "Marian Gaborik-tap-in" type goals. But I digress. The real story of the game was not Doug Weight, nor was it Brind'Acrap. The real story of the game was Cam Ward. The kid made at least 3 extraordinary saves in the third, and clearly stole this game for his club. At the other end of the ice, Dwayne Roloson looked every bit like the backup goalie he has been throughout his career. Worse yet, he might be injured. With about 6 minutes left in the game, he had to leave and was replaced by Ty Conklin. Now, maybe fans in Edmonton will want to crucify him for the mistake behind the net, the one with 30 seconds left that cost the Oilers the game, but I don't. I feel really bad for the guy. He hasn't played in over a month, and bam!, he gets thrown in the Stanley Cup Finals, just like that, in game tied 4-4, with 6 minutes left. That's just not fair.

That being said, if Roloson is to be out, he now has the same opportunity that was given to Roloson upon being traded to the Oilers: the opportunity to define his career in a very little amount of games. Here's to hoping he makes a great impression!

See ya Wednesday kids...

Dwarf out

losing a 3-0 is unacceptable. and why has jason smith's knuckle imprint not been pasted on rod brind'amour's face yet? who know, he might look a whole lot better. i'm so sick of seeing a half man half rat getting praised for shitty goals. the oilz need to get more physical and put some body checks on evyone of those moggots except for doug.



rollie the goalie is out for the series, doesn't look good my porky friend, it doesn't look good at all.....

Indeed, young protege, indeed you are correct.
Your task of the day is to send back to me your completed World Cup form - the deadline is coming soon.

Poor Roly - but I have hope in Conklin. He'll be much better next game, and the Oils will win it 3-2. I am so depressed I missed so much of this beautiful hockey- but it looks like the finals are on Channel 5!!! So tomorrow I will be watching this game live!!!

Sweet LP, I propose you name your new kid (if he's a boy) Elwey Morin (in honour of your favorite Mr Ed, no7...)
By the way, I have no fixation on Hasselhof. I just respect him a hell of a lot for being The Main Reason why the Berlin Wall fell down, and I think that maybe Dwarf would have more friends if people though that he was actually David Hasselhof, trying to pass as someone else by calling himself Dwarf.

I wish I was rich enough to buy the Stanley Cup - the Real One.
Instead, I will have to settle for THE COOLEST TV in the world at the moment!! In my very respectable bedroom, above my very elegant fireplace, I will have a very posh mirror. But this mirror is actually a tv that when off, reflects the light, but when on becomes an amazing 32" lcd HD tv with all the shiznizt one could want. Thank you Philips for inventing Miravision!! biAtche, your second task of the day is to go on Google, type in "Miravision Philips", find the tv I am talking about and reveal in a mix of jealousy, envy and admiration for me.

By the way, for those who didn't know, the Dick is travelling in Europe at the moment. So if you want to trash him, now should be a good moment as he might not be able to answer back.

Yo, Sweetness, what's the problem? Too good to write on the blog? Too good to send back your completed form of the World Cup?
Guys, if nobody fills in their WC pool, then I guess I will be the winner of the beautiful 8mm trophy...

By the way, it pisses me off that everybody's shitting in Ty Conklin and saying that the Oilers are done. TC's good, real good. And he's no29

By the way, here's a very controversial statement that I am sure will leave no one indifferent: I have started to paint little guys again. Yes, Sweetness, the little Citadel guys... Yes, Dwarf, Ral Partha and all that crap, back in effect!
Yes, the Dick, you will see some when you come to visit this weekend!!! And no, Huy, for the last time I will not paint your magician with the magic wand of darkness with +3 on the saving throws!!!
