Carter Hurt/Ellerby Waived/Vey, Toffoli Called Up/Line Brawl
I really, really hate it when they say Linden Vey “recalled” – How the fuck can he be “re-called” when he’s never BEEN called to play in an NHL game?
Needless to say, whatever the injury to our best player is (I’m not allowed to tweet my medical reports anymore… seems my inside source got a slap on the wrist/ass/penis) but it will likely keep him out for
3-4 weeks. UPDATE: BROKEN FOOT, OUT 4-6 WEEKS. Then again, I said Willie Mitchell wouldn’t play this year, so what the hell do I know? Nobody’s really sure exactly what happened to Carter, but draw your own conclusions folks. Last night WAS Halloween.
The thing that pisses me off here in these transactions is Keaton Ellerby basically being given away – NOBODY wanted this guy? Even a 6th round pick? For a guy making 735K? Come on, Dean. You gave away Hickey. You gave away Clune. You gave away Cliche and now you’re giving away Ellerby? What the hell, Dean?
At least Hellen Kellerby, a former 1st round pick (then again so was Colten Teubert), will be picked up by Edmonton and get to play a regular shift. But to get NOTHING for this guy? UPDATE: EDMONTON PASSES AND HE’S CLAIMED BY THE JETS
Does anyone else find it strange that Linden Vey actually makes more than Tyler Toffoli?
Without the two call ups, the Monarchs still managed to put a 5 spot on Providence on the road. (Pearson, Andreoff, Kozun, Shore, Weal) and Scott Sabourin absolutely bloodies the Bruins Captain in this brawl.
Patty Roy must have a handshake deal with God – he trades away Steve Downie who gets hurt tonight with a concussion from a wicked left from Aaron Volpatti.
Watch a black man beat up a white man, Lecavalier get his teeth knocked out and two former Kings scrap in a Flyers/Capitals line-brawl (Emery beats the shit out of Holtby while the ref just stands by and watches!)… yes, there’s a reason why Ray Emery is, and always will be, a fucking idiot. “He didn’t want to fight,” Emery said. “And I said, basically, ‘Protect yourself.’ He didn’t really have much of a choice.”
I’m glad the newest version of the “Broad Street Bullies” got their asses handed to them. Fuck the Flyers. Vinny lost two teeth, Downie was concussed by a TKO and even Schenn and Simmonds took a few knots on their skulls. But what Emery did to his opponent is not only chickens hit and a disgrace to the game, to name him THIRD STAR with a .733 save percentage is not only disgusting, it makes me hate the fucking morons who run hockey in that town. I will not only be rooting for them to be the worst team in the league this year, I hope their #1 pick turns out to be another Alex Daigle.
So… Semyon Varlamov likes to get drunk and beat women (allegedly). This doesn’t sound like a Russian superstar at all! [/sarcasm] The fucked up thing about BOTH countries is that he’ll get away with it. Pure and simple. The way the “law” works, they’ll make his accuser out to be a money grubbing whore, politics will come into play with the D.A. and he’ll get a slap on the wrist. Remember when Patty Roy was arrested after pulling a door off his hinges in a fight with HIS old lady? I Do. Look where he is now.
