“I’m just amazed that [Bobby Clarke’s firing] happened so soon. Clarke has survived like a cockroach in a Mexico City slum, letting his coaches take the fall for him and getting a lifetime of free passes from Ed Snider, his Daddy Warbucks-with-attitude.”
Jes Gőlbez has a hate-hate relationship with former Flyers’ GM Bobby Clarke, so definitely go there if you want to see him “butcher the assclown”.
Sharks vs Wild: “The best way I can sum it up: it was the kind of game that makes you want to find a pay phone, and call in a bomb scare.”
Two for Elbowing caught the most boring game possible on Saturday night and and was compelled to leave early. (No bomb threats were reported.)
“To all of you squeeing fangirls out there who hope that, one day, you may be able to land yourself an athletic, hairy, and toothless hunk of Oilers man-meat: We salute you.”
That’s from Hot Oil. Honestly, I love the Hot Oil girls, but so many things about that quote make me want to grab a shower and start drinking heavily.
“Marty Turco has lost his marbles. He now stands in the corner, as shown, and waits for pucks to come to him and for the photographer to throw him some candy through the peep hole.”
Waiting for Stanley wants to take away Marty’s candy.
“I made the mistake of watching the game from the lazy boy recliner. I was awake to see the ironic first career goal of Patrick O’Sullivan, but drifted in and out after that. Mostly out.”
Wild Puck Banter supports the Minnesota Wild to best of his ability, but it can be seriously hard to stay awake at times.
“The Red Wings’ front office and PR staff need a serious attitude adjustment towards the fans that bankroll a still-profitable team, because the Wings-hating media are right about one thing: while the claims of the team’s imminent demise have been incorrect for over a decade, the imminent demise of the Red Wings’ paying fan base is already here.”
George Malik’s article on Kukla’s last weekend took no prisoners from the Red Wings head office.
