If you didn’t watch any hockey last night then you’re doin shit wrong. The NHL 2015-2016 season opened up last night and I couldn’t be more excited. Lots of shit happened. Cockbab obviously used the NHL’s first coach challenge and prevailed. Lucic is still a moron, Rangers got a nice victory on the road over the reigning Stanley Cup champs and it was tremendous to start the season that way.
The Blackhawks had a pregame ceremony to commemorate the previous season’s success and they raised their 2014-2015 Stanley Cup banner. Prior to the banner raising, the Blackhawks took a half hour to pretty much show every single person that ever worked for the team and/or worked at the United Center. Shit took forever. They were classy when they showed and thanked retired player Kimmo Timonen and went on to show trainers, scouts, coaches. They then threw a fuckin curveball and thanked motherfuckin Team Security, Brian Higgins.
Look at the smirk on this old codger. Higgs looks like he has very little time for bullshit and takes no prisoners. Obviously I had to rewind a couple times hence the DVR thing gettin picked up in the video I don’t really care I was dying when I saw this guy. Higgs is like “shiiiiet” exactly like Senator Clay Davis from The Wire.
The Hockey News: “I have to.”
You’re damn right you have to Jaromir, there’s literally no reason you should have ever cut it in the first place. The biggest crime in the game over the past decade and a half is the absence of that magnificent and legendary mane.
But Jags, you couldn’t make this monumental announcement like a week ago? C’mon bro, I had my fantasy draft on Saturday night and would have made you my first round pick if I knew the legendary Jagr Flow was gonna be back in action this year. If you don’t think Jaromir’s gonna tear shit up and put up astounding numbers whilst his mane of glory dazzles defenders then you don’t know anything about hockey or the 90s and you’re just flat out a stupid person. Throw out all preseason picks and put the Panthers on top of your list of contenders ‘cuz theres just no stopping Jagr Flow. I’m setting the over/under at 473 for points this year by the ageless Czech, and I’m taking the over. By a lot.
Casually lookin up Petr videos/pics, found this one and couldn’t believe my eyes. At the same time I wasn’t surprised that this exists at all. Things like this happen way too often. Anything involving Petr Nedved is worth writing about.
Also Doud has two Petr Nedved jerseys.
Well you knew this was coming, there was no way the isles would move to Brooklyn and not want to jump on the Nets’ all black everything bandwagon to attempt to drum up the BK Hipster fandom. Lets get one thing clear off the top: if you say you hate this look your’re wrong and Kevin Nash, Hollywood Hogan and Scott Hall will fuck you up. Its a solid uniform set head to toe with a simplistic, yet iconic jersey design with the four pinstripes on the sleeves representing
the only time they’ve ever been relevant …well you know what it represents. The NY logo is bold and front and center and is honestly a great look. The BKLYN helmet logos are a bit of a mouthful but fit the overall motif they’re goin for of “yo we play in Brooklyn now so get over it.”
Having said that is Barclay’s Center actually a prison? Or does this look just re-iterate that Islander fans won’t show up to Brooklyn and they anticipate the place being as silent as a mime? Perhaps its a dark representation that the Islanders are in fact dead considering that name is nowhere to be found on this uni. We all know Brooklyn is hipster as fuck but didn’t realize how emo it apparently is (I could go on and on). Either way it’s yet another large departure from the solid and iconic blue and orange uniform/color set that the Isles have always had, which along with the Oilers is up there as best in the game, and that’s the only reason why Islander die-hards might deride them. That, and all the other reasons I listed in this paragraph.
Not too shabby by Flower. I mean you’d even think they were the same player when you watch some of Fleury’s recent playoff performances. Regardless this video was actually funny. Wish they had Bob Errey playing Jim Carr instead of Dan Potash so Fleury could actually spear him. Bob Errey sucks.
An incident that occurred last week was rectified last night. The former New York Ranger who legitimately had a worse overall awarensss for the game of hockey than Rich Pilon was arrested last night. Yeah the guy who tried to gouge out Colton Orr’s eyes in a fight when Orr was on the Bruins. Yeah that guy. Dale Purinton.
Dickhead Dale thought it was a tremendous idea to break into someone’s home, injure them and flea the scene. Also I’m probably gonna have nightmares after gettin a look at that mug shot. Good God dude.
