The Last Time Slava Voynov Scored…
It’s not a broken collarbone. THANK YOU, HOCKEY GODS! My first child will be delivered via Fed-Ex Monday.
It’s worse than what the Kings are telling you and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Doughty sat out the rest of the regular season and not play tomorrow like they’ll have you believe. Of course, this means he’ll play tomorrow night.
Ducks or San Jose? I’m torn. Mounds or Almond Joy?
Watching the Ducks get plastered like wall paper tonight makes me feel like maybe the Kings should play the Ducks after all. Wasn’t this the same Ducks team that was down 4-0 against the Jets? They’re not gonna come back against the Kings because the Kings don’t blow 4 goal leads in the playoffs… wait a minute…
San Jose wasn’t all THAT impressive. They were chasing the puck all night long, they didn’t beat Jonathan Quick, and Joe “Big Pussy” Thornton still has never won a damn thing. Hey, can someone blow up a poster of the “Soprano’s” Big Pussy and photoshop Thornton’s face onto it. My seats are right across from the TV camera’s and directly behind the Sharks bench. I’d be more than happy to hold it up!
I went to the hospital today. I had to have an MRI on my shoulder from patting myself on the back:
“With Mersch and Dowd (not Weal, corrected) heading to Manchester, and the Kings with plenty of cap space, I wouldn’t be surprised if Lombardi recalled a few players to give the wounded warriors a chance to heal during the Vancouver game and 3 off days coming up.” – yesterday’s blog
So what happens today? Vey doesn’t surprise me at all. Toffoli needs a rest.
Campbell on the hand has me scratching my head, my balls and my athlete’s foot:
1) how BAD does an NHL veteran like Jeff Schultz have to be that the Kings recall a 26 year old rookie who has never played an NHL game… and
2) recall a player that will have to clear waivers in order to play in the Monarchs playoffs (I think, I could be wrong about this… as I often am) I mean, it’s not like Lombardi has just GIVEN AWAY players like Rich Clune or Thomas Hickey or Mark Andre Cliche. No, none of them made the NHL.
The last time Slava Voynov scored…
a) Malaysian planes were still landing at their destinations (damn, I just HAD to get one in!)
b) the only earthquake was when Kirstie Alley was dancing at a wedding
c) The only snow was going up Zac Efron’s nose
d) North Koreans had kidnapped an 85 year old man. He’s since been freed and he’s now 86.
e) Paul Walker and Philip Seymour Hoffman were still alive
f) Thalía did not have a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. Now she does and I still don’t know who she is
g) The Golden Globes and Academy Awards came and went and I can’t remember who won, let alone remember who was nominated
h) “The Hunger Games” grossed 161 million dollars just NARROWLY beating “Delivery Man”
i) The National Championship Game was played, The Super Bowl was played, three outdoor games were played, the Olympics were played and Jay Leno was still on the air.
j) Justin Bieber still had a career
k) Same sex marriage was illegal. NOW they can be just as miserable as us regular married folks!
l) ObamaCare was a laughingstock… Oh, wait…
m) 20 players have been suspended. My favorite? BizNasty, 2 games for not being able to spell on Twitter
n) Matt Greene was still in the lineup and Matt Frattin was still on the roster.
o) Ryan Gosling actually ate his cereal
p) Whole Foods was affordable
q) Dick Clark did not host the New Year’s celebration because he was dead
r) You still felt safe about riding in an elevator in Brazil
s) 17 NHL players had Sean Avery’s “sloppy seconds”
t) It was still safe to use a credit card at Target. Which is sad that I’m admitting I shop at Target.
I love Adam Oates throwing Ovechkin under the bus and I loved today even more when Ovechkin threw his teammates under the bus.
It wasn’t quite as wonderful as Mike Gillis throwing John Tortorella under the bus yesterday.
My GOD do I love dysfunctional families!
