Edzo …


So after that Tremendously Tremendous first period and solid victory by the Red, White and Blue, I have this question for y’all:

Do youse want Canada to win tonight so Team USA can go head-to-head with the Canucks for the Gold and take it right out of Hot Dog Lips’ mouth? Or would you rather avoid the big red machine on its home ice? Just wondering?


As we noted earlier, the Rangers  sent Chad Johnson to Hartford and recalled goalie Miika Wiikman today. It just means Wiikman will be the practice target and that Ocho  will get some game action before Tuesday. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Ocho play in Ottawa.

    no problem Carpzo!!

    great question. either way, its possible (if miracles happen) that all 4 Rangers left in the tournament could medal if Canada gets beaten tonight by Slovakia, and tomorrow night by Finland! Heehee But seriously, 3 Rangers WILL medal!

  2. Rick (No, not that one) on

    I owe it all to my Jagr jersey.
    On a snow day, I can wear it to work. And am proudly.

  3. beating canada at canada was so sweet. beating them again in canada for the gold medel….doesnt get much better than that. im hopin for the rematch. lets go USA!

  4. Hey, I had to get the zo in there somewhere…it’s hard to do with my name :)Babzo maybe?!

    I am torn. Would like a USA/Canada game, but, Izzy! How cool would it be if the Fighting Slovaks beat them in the semis and then USA (the little engine that could, great post earlier Salty) won the gold!

    A girl can dream….

  5. Of course it is!!! Who else would it be, that dislikes Tim Thomas and loves the Jaromitrio as much as I do.

  6. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    lmao @ Jaromitrio! should have added the ZO after it ;-)

    babzo, i like that one!!

  7. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    This is from the NY Daily News:

    USA! Men’s hockey team beats Finland 6-1, will play for gold
    The American Olympic team scored four times in a six-goal first period.


    scored 4 times in a 6 goal first period???? UH… UH…

  8. Canada! Absolutely! If we lose, we lose to a better team. But if we win….!! Beating Zlovakia, on the other hand, wouldn’t feel the same. Besides, why give Don Cherry any chance for an excuse?

  9. Sorry, mrs suggested that perhaps I continue packing. Hey, my shaving stuff is in! Baby steps lol

  10. Linda, thanks, I like Babzo too, but I think I’ll stick with mamazo through Sunday! thanks rick (not that one).

    Hey CCCP et al, kinda sounds like matzoh, though Italian….:)

  11. morg, outstanding! But I gotta ask, who has time to do that much less find it online….thanks!

    mamazo/babzo is signing off. Til later all! Ta!

    Go Fighting Slovaks!!

  12. if ocho is in goal tuesday thats a joke hank will have had 6 days off

    lets hope that gabby doesnt take a beaten tonite by weber and company on d

    go slovaks

  13. Canada can’t lose quick enough for me. what’s everybody goin say we didn’t beat the best,we already beat them. Go Gabby

  14. I’d Canada to lose 2 in a row and get no medal at all. Freaking Canadians routing for everyone to beat us, go eat some salmon and drink a Molson.

  15. Shattenkirkheadzo on

    Would love to see liver-lips with Bronze hanging from his neck. What a great, long 4 years it would be for that whiner.

  16. morg, OMG!!!!! that site is tremendously tremendous!!! I was on there for like half an hour watching videos. ROFLMFAO!! did you see the one with Torts and Brooks?

  17. hedberg, excellent point, but Sunday still matters.

    OMG, can anyone remember when Carp said ROFLMFAO!!

    morg, good job! mamazo is so Ta Tazo’d…

  18. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    lmao @ BAAAAAAAAAAAATMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!! (maple leaf superfriends one!!)

    Carp, once Torts mentioned the wine, then the beach blanket, it got very weird lol

  19. >>rather canada be out sooner rather than later.

    Yep, I’m not one for drama. Get rid of them TONIGHT!

    [I don’t see that happening though.]

  20. I can’t sit there and root for Crosby and company to beat Slovakia…I like the Slovaks and it’d be great to see Gabby go up against the US

    With that said, for entertainment sake, I would love to see USA/Canada in a rematch…but would be afraid Canada is going to steamroll the USA

    So, I don’t really know…I think I will root for Gabby and not be pissed if Crybaby wins

  21. Linzo, I had to leave the match for a moment to go do some work. We were at 19 EdZos midway through the second period.

  22. >>so its safe to say we probably hit at least 35 ;-)

    You might be on the conservative side there, Linzo.

  23. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    this guy sounds like he should be on radio fred rogan.. related to joe?

    CURLING AFTER DARK at 3 am! lmao!

  24. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    dingleberry looks like he has a bit of a lil black eye…or is that a pimple?

  25. Hi, boneheadzos! Packed! I think. I’m sure I’ll have a few oopz upon arrival, but hey, they sell stuff in Montana. Wicky?

    Who’s playing? J/K. Go Slovakzz!!

  26. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Greg: Olympics are over, man. Canada’s gonna win the big one.

    Izzy: Over? Did you say “over”? Nothing is over until the Slovaks decide it is! Was it over when the Germans beat USA? Hell no!

    Doodie: The Germans? They lost every game…

    Blogmama: Forget it, he’s rolling.

    Izzy: And it ain’t over now. ‘Cause when the goin’ gets tough…

    Izzy: the Slovaks get goin’! Who’s with me? Let’s go!

    Izzy: What happened to the Boneheads I used to know? Where’s the spirit? Where’s the guts, huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you’re gonna let it be the worst. “Ooh, we’re afraid to root for Slovakia, we might get in trouble.” Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I’m not gonna take this. Crosby, he’s a dead man! Luongo? dead! Niedermeyer…

    Doodie: Dead! Izzy’s right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. Slovaks have gotta take these bastards. Now they could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think Gaborik has to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part.

    Izzy: Slovakia has just the guys to do it.

    Doodie: Let’s do it.

    Izzy: *LET’S DO IT*!

  27. MAKO says *RUSSIA!!!!!* on

    Good evening ladies and gents

    I have to apologize to some of you for my tardiness in getting back to you. I have had a week from hell.

    Im exhausted so I hope I can stay awake for this game.


  28. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    oh duh… TPCH is on the Canadian broadcast, that must be why we are not stuck with his stupidity! WOO HOO


    One of my douche Canadian friend just texted me this: LMAO

    Our Father, who art in GM Place, hockey be thy game, thy will be done, GOLD to be WON on ice as well as in the stands, give us this day our hockey sticks, and forgive us our penalties, as we forgive those who crosscheck against us. Lead us not into elimination but deliver us to victory, in the name of the fans, CANADA and the holy puck. AMEN! ?? ? GO CANADA GO ?? ?1

  30. >>I still dont understand how Russia lost so bad :(

    All I know is, I’ll never root for those guys again.

  31. imagine if Halak went out with friends and prevented them from picking up women……

    his nickname could be #@*#block Halak!

  32. I was already ticked off at the Russian football team for their choke job against Slovenia during World Cup qualifiers. SLOVENIA!

  33. Most of the scouting should have been focused on Canada. Sovits better we play the enemy we know. The Slovaks have been too far Unser the radar for us. Let’s rock Bobby Lu and his super forward Sidney “Howard The Duck” Crosby. He kind of looks like a hybrid between Bugs Bunny and Donald Duck with those lips and floppy ears

  34. US battled much better than the Slovaks. US is the only team in the tournament that can match up with the Canadians in the physical game player for player. Slovaks have Chara and that’s about it.



    I was just thinking the same thing. Im hoping Chara takes Cindy’s head off because AO certainly didnt do it.

  36. This game is far from over. Bobby Lu hasn’t been tested this whole Olympic tournament. If the Slovaks come in the 2nd with pressure, he’ll fall. The next goal will decide the game. Whoever scores the next goal will win. If Canada loses momentum they’ll get shakey. If they get the 3 goal lead, they’ll destroy the Slovaks hope. Next team to score will win.

  37. If Canada score next then yes, they will win.

    But to say Slovakia will win if they score next? Interesting

  38. If Slovakia scores next, the Rangers will win the Stanley Cup…..

    at least once in the next 90 years!!

  39. Just a gut feeling. Canada has had problems every game they didn’t score 7 goals or more. The Slovaks have played better in tight games. That’s how I see it. Of course anything can happen. I’m just going on the past games. First tight game went to a shootout. The other game they fell to our guys.

  40. I’m thrilled they stopped that “Day-O… Wooo Wooo” thing. That was so stupid. I wish they would do “thufferin thukertash” every time Crosby gets a penalty

  41. too bad that wasnt gaborik or demitra flyin out of the box or that coulda been somehtin, chara knew he wasnt gona fly by anybody so he dumped and changed

  42. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    good eye CT, my fiancee actually asked me why he didnt get a penalty!! he’s learning!!


    I guess when a European gets slewfooted by a Canadian its thumb up. Boyle = dirtbag

  44. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    they showed crosby earlier and he started singing “my baloney has a first name…”

  45. Linda tell your fiance that it wasn’t a penalty because Canada has 8 men on the ice at all times, 5 players, 1 goalie and 2 refs.

  46. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    he’s all aggravated…saying even if canada doesnt score again they are going to win because slovakia cannot sustain offensive pressure… I am sitting here SHOCKED at him!!

  47. speakin of lines, how bout puttin demitra gaborik and hossa out there for a shift and see waht happens

  48. “February 26th, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    Linda tell your fiance that it wasn’t a penalty because Canada has 8 men on the ice at all times, 5 players, 1 goalie and 2 refs.”

    Sounds an awful lot like a conspiracy! ;)

  49. I guess the positive is, we will not have to hear how it was Zdeno’s leadership that got Slovakia a gold medal!!!

    Goodbye Zdeno!

  50. Look out for a few more Canadian goals. Their mojo is now on fire. Now I hope they run up the score so they get cocky vs USA and lose

  51. if brodeur was playing id say they still hav an outside shot to comeback but with luongo in there thsi game is sealed

    nash just laid out morrow haha

  52. no i dont want them to run up the score last thing we need is them with all the confidence in the world, let them win 3-2, 4-2 in a close one i think thats better for us


    Why do they ALWAYS have to show in ANY commercial that has to do with the NHL the Rangers getting scored on?

  54. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    i’m thinking of getting married in NY so some of you guys can come to the party!! hehehe

  55. “It’s a smart decision defensively why they’re playing so well too”

    That makes a lot of sense JR!

  56. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    NYR, and he looks like girardi!!

    Cottontailzo, I cant WAIT to see that movie!! I’m a huge fan of the original with Harry Hamlin! And I would be honored if you wore a Cherry like outfit!!

  57. You all may know this already so sorry if you do, but this is really hilarious…

    In the 1996 Western Conference semi-finals between the Colorado Avalanche and the Chicago Blackhawks, after a controversial game in which Roenick was tripped on a breakaway and no penalty shot was called, Patrick Roy said, “I would have saved it anyway.” In another interview, Roenick replied, “I’d like to know where Patrick was in Game 3 (a game in which Roenick had scored on Patrick Roy on a similar breakaway); probably up trying to get his jock out of the rafters.” Roy retorted, “I cannot really hear what Jeremy says because I’ve got my two Stanley Cup rings plugging my ear.”

  58. Roenick also tried to exact injury pay from the Flyers during the lockout despite the doctors clearing him LOL

    this is all from Wiki though, so who knows its validity

  59. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    after hearing those “Doc clips” its sooooooooo nice to hear this game with Kenny Albert and Eddie O. Sounds much more professional withouth TPCH here also!


    I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED the old one. But I really think this is going to be WICKED!!!!

    Oh yeah? Good I’ll start looking on line now for one ;)


    LMAO NYRGuy Yeah thanks for reminding us of that. Pretty priceless back and fourth….


    Hey who complained about the Canadian woman and their on ice antics. Was it the Americans?


    I really hope he just took himself out of the game. You think these putzes would say something about it.

  64. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    doesn’t exert himself…unless he wants to remove someones head from their body

  65. Well, the good thing about this is Canada doesn’t have this invincibility about them…they’re panicking, just a teeny bit of doubt creeping into their heads

  66. Why do fans boo everything don’t they know it’s like the Stranley Cup finals


  67. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    groove???? they didnt look that good at the end there

    and of course, hot dog lips because he is the only one on the team who can speak

  68. If Demitra scores and the Slovaks win, then Demitra might not have been wanted back on the Canucks anymore.

    Like when English fans were angry at Ronaldo, when Ronaldo drew a red card on Rooney, and Portugal beat England on PKs

  69. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Now let’s see what those A-holes Roenick and Milbury have to say after poo-pooing the Slovaks.

  70. Carp that’s an interesting thing…

    If Gabby is hurt and needs attention, our trainer is prepping for a game Sunday against his coach..


  71. anyone else freaking out here about gabby. all olympics he is fine now towards the end when we need him on tues and are 1 pt back of a playoff spot im freaking out

  72. Linzo says GOOD LUCK TEAM USA on

    now here’s a real scholar:

    Pavol Demitra should kill himself. How do you miss that?!?! And where the hell was Marian Gaborik? He had better be dead or something.
    truebluefan329 – twitter.com – 16 minutes ago

  73. I did not see the whole game. Does anyone remember a part of the game where Gaborik may have gotten hurt?

  74. That’s a good point though Linda, not what he said, but the fact that he must have been pretty hurt to not play in that 3rd period

  75. Izzy Mandlebaum on

    Gaborik would have to be incapacitated to not play the rest of that game.

    If Gabby is hurt, would that change Sather to a seller instead of buyer?

  76. All the recap says is:

    Gaborik, though, did not play in the third period. He came into the Olympics injured with a deep laceration on his right knee, but hasn’t missed a game in the tournament.



    I dont know. He took a couple of BIG hits but threw 2 big hits too. I know body contact probably isnt the culprit but who knows….

  78. Izzy lol

    All it would do is make Sather trade everything we have for a player that he thinks will be able to score like Gabby

  79. Mike Richards collided with Gaborik. Was that it? If so, Richards needs to hear about it next trip to Philly.

  80. heres my update to all on gabby

    i just went back on the dvr and his last shift was with 1:38 left in the second period. he seemed to be skating fine. if i had to speculate some kind of lower body injury.

    its more important to us ranger fans and he owes it to the team to sit the bronze metal game tom.

    so again 1 min 38 seconds to go in the 2nd he was out there

  81. Richards actually was mowed down by Gaborik and Richards skated away looking hurt. Gabby played fine after that.

  82. Nice job, Eric.

    I think all Rangers fans would breathe a huge sigh of relief if the injury was just him re-aggravating the laceration on his leg as opposed to the possible alternatives…

  83. Canadian news outlets are carrying on about Luongo’s save on Demitra at the end, calling it “the glove from above.” Didn’t it go off the crossbar and they’re just fluffing their goalie?

  84. I would think it would be hard to get any info because there are no beat reporters, like in NY. Do the coaches have press conferences after the game in the Olympics? I’m assuming they do, right?

  85. There must be tons of media at the game, but they’re all probably interested in whether Crosby’s hair got messed up or not. Can’t someone twitter or something for pete’s sake?


    Pfft my “Canadian friend” said Luongo saved it (of course). But that looked like it went off of the crossbar to me.

  87. Ugh, I hope this isn’t a major issue…

    per TSNBobMcKenzie Twitter:

    “No official word on Gaborik’s injury, but as yet unconfirmed reports suggest it may be the groin. At the very least, NYR cause for concern.”

  88. Carp why not just keep Valliquette up,instead of this merry go round that has been going on. What did the guy do to the coach to get the Siberia treatment? Or is the coach using him as a whipping post? It just doesn’t add up to the surface story. It smells of vindictiveness . And it’s hard to see how Johnson or the NYR are benefiting from this. Now Brooks is talking about Auld. Maybe Valli & Brooks are friends ………

  89. D-man got stick on the puck before it hit the crossbar. No glove from God. Got to bury it though in that spot

  90. What a Disaster (Jessiman over Parise in '03) on

    Does anyone remember the last time Hockey was the lead segment on Sportscenter as it was today for Team USA? No? Either could I.

    For the fans and the game itself, NHLer Olympic hockey is great to watch and provides good exposure (if you get the power house matchup that we have on Sunday)

    For NHL owners and fans of teams who have a legitimate shot at the Cup, not so much….
