    Crosby Update:

    It’s reported that Sidney Crosby has been replaced by a cyborg. The cyborg is taking care of Crosby’s day-to-day activities, minus the hockey (they can’t teach it to skate with any skill) while Crosby and his team make preparations for what might be the biggest losing tactic they’ve come up with to date.
    The actual Crosby is currently cryogenically frozen and scheduled to thaw in 2013 when upcoming hockey talent Nathan MacKinnon will be eligible for the NHL draft, an anonymous but reliable source says.
    “The Penguins plan to tank their season prior to the draft in order to gain the top pick,” says the source. “Although the number one pick is technically a lottery, we all know the league has favored the Penguins (in the past), and will do so again. It’s just vital for them to finish in the bottom 2 or 3 to not arise suspicion.”
    When asked how the Penguins think they could get away with such a tactic he had this to say: “Well, they’ve done it before (the tanking) and it seemed to work just fine to get Super Mario and Sid the Kid. The cyborg-bit to keep Sid out of play and young in his frozen state is new, but you gotta love technology. They’ve got every detail down with the replacement, and nobody, I mean nobody, not even his mother—can tell.”
    The source continued, “I know it seems far-fetched, but believe you me, it’s already happened. Sid and Nathan will be line mates in just a couple of years. To think the front office never would have thought of this if Sid didn’t get injured. That concussion is the best thing that’s ever happened.”

  3. Versus sucks on

    It’s gotta be Buckaroo Club.
    What’s the winner get anyway?

    Just to vent real quick on Versus. Can’t they have an over-flow channel for the earlier rounds of the playoffs, so I can switch between games, without just having to see the last 15 minutes of the late game start? The “late” game starts tonight at 8, and is probably on NHL Network.
    I don’t get the NHL Network, because Cablevision gets enough of my money, and I think it’s a joke you should have to pay extra for that channel anyway.

    Very unusual for the Wings to give up a 3 goal lead – looks like the Sharks are in their heads now..

  12. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    Fire Holland!! I’ve been saying it all along!

    cccp
    obviously before is on the right and after is on the left. I was far better looking at the beginning of the contest!!

  13. Congrats, Sally!!!!! Sorry about cropping out the gloves.

    How the non-smoking going, Tony? You look a lot younger since you stopped.

  14. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    Sally
    congrats on the joining the masters club!!

    Tony
    keep strong, no cigs!

  15. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I hope gravity takes over on the voting!!

  16. Very early in the polling, wick. I think we’ll have voting through Monday. Maybe you should try some bribes.

  17. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    Carp
    try?? Didn’t you get the check I referenced last thread??

  18. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I was just getting tired of sleeping in the doghouse!

  19. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    hope we don’t have any dangling chads

  20. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    hattie!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    back to work, later assens..rock the vote!!!

  22. That was crazy pressure by Detroit. And what an overall play on the GWG. If SJS don’t win Game 5 at home, well, that doesn’t bode well for them.

  23. JimboWoodside on

    Well, Detroit staved off elimination tonight – let’s hope Philthy doesn’t do the same……

  24. Hello all. I assure you that those are brand new pics for this years playoffs. My wife can attest to that, as she wanted to make me sleep in the basement because of it.

    Man, I feel that if the rangers could have some how mad it through to the second round, that we could have put up more of a fight than some of the teams we have seen.

  25. LET’S GO Bs! PHILLY CANNOT WIN THE CUP!!!!

    “12) I’d love to know who came up with the stick salute, because it’s one of the coolest things in sports.”

    It’s a European thing. I think Kasparaitas brought it to the Rangers after the lockout. When he pretty much got kicked off the team for being too fat, I heard Dubinsky suggested they keep it.

    Thank you fans!

  26. Olga Folkyerself on

    Let’s Go Bruins!

    Don’t sit on a one goal lead! You’re in Boston fer cripes sake. Get some insurance!

  27. JimboWoodside on

    I’ve been thinking the same thing, Olga – Bruins are just sitting back and letting Philly come at them in waves……that is a proven way to lose games!

  28. Laviolette to the trainer. “2 buses back, one to Pats and one to Genos. Half the wait.”

  29. Tampa/Boston will be a good series. The muscle and grinding of Boston against the speed of Tampa. If Tampa can gain the zone and create plays and continue to click on their PP, they will win that series.

  30. JimboWoodside on

    Are those two Bergerons related, I wonder? If so, they’ll be playing each other like the Staals…

  31. JimboWoodside on

    Thanks for the Horton answer, 3CP – seems like he wasn’t playing that much during the regular season, but I may have just missed hearing his name.

    He’s quite the important player in these playoffs, though!

  32. JimboWoodside on

    OK, Latona – I was just wondering…..might have been interesting. Boston’s Bergeron got his bell rung in this game and did not return though, so who knows what shape he’ll be in for the next series.

  33. Olga Folkyerself on

    Any team that can eliminate Montreal and Philly in the same playoffs season is OK in my book.

    Besides it makes Tiki’s brain squirm…

  34. I think it’s ok to root for the Bruins, you gotta respect Lucic and Timmy Thomas.

  35. At this point I really dont care who wins it all

    I’m happy it wont be any of the mickeymouse clubs

  36. It would be cool to see Roloson get another crack at the Cup Final. I think he was injured in game 1 in 2006 when he was with the Oilers.

    Check out the game winning goal the backup gave in that game. One of the softest goals in playoff history. It must have killed Roloson.

  37. Sally appears to have become Stan Fischler and I think Nasty should be tested for performance enhancing Woolly Willy.

  38. Good morning, ‘heads!

    Arrived upstate late last night and watched the games on DVR. Went to bed at 1ish and had to wake up at 6 – can’t miss early morning spring bass fishing. I know, tough life.
    Good games last night. Very consistent series by Philadelphia, don’t you think? I mean, they only used two goaltenders….And I think Laviolette did a great job of giving both of them equal TOI, so that they both can get playoff experience. Geez, get a real goalie, Holmgren!

    Detroit is still on life support. And I think they’ll be done in 5. Sharks are very strong this year.

  39. The beard contest is priceless.

    Wicky, none of these pictures look like you in real life. Although, the one after is very close.

    Sally, congrats! Done, eh? Now you can shave.

    Tony- are you from Brooklyn?

    Manny- if it was the bi-annual glasses contest, you’d win hands down

    Noah and Nasty look very much alike, but one of them doesn’t smile much…

    Who is Buckaroo Club?

    LW3H- wow! I didn’t think one could for more than two days without shaving in England!

    Great job, everyone.

  40. Hammerhead on

    i voted for buckaroo cause he looks like Mara even though i never seen any of his posts..and its a real beard …2nd would have been Nasty’s beard

  41. I’m not smiling in my pic because it was immediately after we were eliminated.

    And while this contest is in honor of one Paul Mara, let’s remember the day he got the best of Patrick Kaleta, that dirty piece of Carcillo.

  42. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    Morning ILB and all!!

    ILB
    hope you landed an big one, and yes, I’m much larger in person (lol)!

    Nasty
    Yes, I can’t remember why I wasn’t smiling. It was one of three reasons…….So many laurels from the bag lady, something LW had posted (I kid, I kid), or the serious lack of a crease clearing D man!!

  43. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I’ll be the first to admit that I am a huge denis leary fan and as much as I love denis leary I hate michael moore even more. that is why this is hilarious to me from twitter..

    denisleary Denis Leary
    Michael Moore thinks we should have captured Bin Laden. Yeah – like he was a fuggin (I changed the previous word for the blog’s sake) butterfly.

    and then

    denisleary Denis Leary
    Hey Mike – do us a favor – capture a salad.
