i guess its not so happy birthday super mario..


i know you must miss playing.. i do.. that you were and always will be one of the greats of our game is not at issue.. you are my hero.. my favorite player.. hands down.. of all time.. now and forever..

but as an owner - albeit an owner that saved the franchise in pittsburgh - dont you just cringe at celebrating your birthday for a 3rd time during an nhl lockout? even a little? doesnt it just kill you inside a little.. it does me..

lock up.. lock down.. lockout.. - or - im as mad as hell and im not going to take this anymore!


im am sooo pissed off right now.. like you have
no idea how pissed off..

ahhh.. great memories..
in this looming lockout hockey season, ask yourself.. are you better off than you were four long short seasons ago?

no im not better off than i was 4 years ago.. four years ago i was gearing up for nhl hockey.. training camp was staring.. the penguins were looking to make a serious run at lord stanleys cup.. hopes were up.. way up.. then.. its like everything came together.. and by that i mean the penguins went on to win le coupe stanley in an epic post season that brought the pens fans to our knees as it looked like detroit might just repeat as cup champions.. geno won the conn smythe trophey..  after an epic post season, sidney finished the cup final series on one leg.. the pens had come back from 10th at one low point in the east to win it all..

and now.. this..

открыть проклятую дверь!

the fattest part of my ass..


from the movie the jerk™,  "i was born a poor black child.." is the beginning of one of the finest comedy routines to come along in my life time.. 

"my story? okay. It was never easy for me.. i was born a poor black child.. i remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in mississippi... " ~ steve martin

thats basically what the nhl owners & gary bettman are trying to convince everyone of right before they lock the players out for the THIRD (3rd!) time in 18 yrs.. eighteen years.. three work stoppages.. 4 if you count the 12 day "strike" in 1992..

i find it really comical and tragic that guys like mario lemieux, philip anschutz, mike ilitch, ed snider, and the rest of those bums are trotting gary bettman out now, at the eleventh hour, 10 days before the looming lockout becomes the reality lockout to plead poverty.. the nhl grossed over $3.1 billion dollars in revenue last year.. just look at the multi-million dollar forever contracts that have been handed out like free t-shirts over the last 5 seasons.. especially this summer.. poverty? really?

im with the nhlpa® on this one..

~ cheers... david

ps.. i wonder if nbcsports™ will bother be able to televise the khl games featuring locked out nhl players? or will the nhl and comcast™ pull some kind of proprietary rights crap and prevent 
nbc™  <--- owned by comcast™ from doing so? 
- fuckers!

lights.. camera.. hockeywood..


the los angeles kings won the stanley cup... amazing post season run.. 16w-4L.. one road loss.. one.
jonathan quick won the conn smythe trophy as playoff mvp.. he did not win the vezina trophy however..  that honor went to some swedish dude with dreamy blue eyes and a smile that could melt glaciers - or is fjords? - that plays in... yup.. new. york. city. dafuq?

dustin brown and alex martinez made a video for the you can play project... awesomesauce..
after 45 yrs.. the stanley cup belongs to hollyhockeywood
the penguins.. remember them? well they offered jordan staal a 10-year $45 million dollar contract extension.. to stay in the burgh as the 3rd line center behind malkin and crosby.. his reply..  is it christmas?  so he got booted traded to carolina on draft day.. to play with his older brother eric.. signed the same deal with the hurricanes a few days later.. so now all my jordan staal-pittsburgh penguins shit is essentially worthless useless.. wait. (gets an idea.. cuts sleeves off the t-shirts and wears them to the gym..) hell get moar opportunities to be the guy in carolina.. so good luck to him..

jordan staal

sid-the-kid got a 10 year deal the keeps him in pittsburgh for the rest of his career.. huge gamble for sure.. but one ray shero had to take.. i hope that all this doesnt come back to bite the pens in the ass.. if crosby takes another monster hit to the head hes the next-eric-lindros-in-black-and-gold baby blue and white black and gold for sure..
i suppose if crosby retires, the pens management - read: ray shero and mario lemieux - will go crazy and find some one - anyone? anyone?  bueller? bueller? - skilled to play center.. i would have done the jordan staal deal differently though.. its not like he was a restricted free agent.. depending on the health of the super-star from cole harbour, nova scotia, <-- sidney crosby - shero & co. could have waited till december or even the all-star break to move jordan..

blah blah blah... off season hockey bull shit no really one currs about but pays attention to cause its you know, hockey....

is it october yet?

bandwagon fans..


every team has them.. bandwagon fans.. phoenix is full of them.. i dont think the coyotes sold out the jobbing dot com™ arena more than a few times during the regular season.. the good people of glendale, az really dont give a fuck about hockey..

will the real marc-andre fleury please stand up..


i think maybe marc-andre fleury is injured... he might be hiding a serious upper body injury.. or a groin pull.. maybe even a concussion.. he seems to have lost the ability to anticipate shots, react to plays, and make great saves at critical times..
ever since that dingus of a defeseman paul martin crashed into the nimble net-minder, he just hasnt been the same..

if you recall..

nhl playoffs first round predictions and notes..


ok ok ok.. the los angeles kings managed to stumble-fuck there way into the 8th and final playoff spot by tanking their last two games against the san jose sharks and have drawn vancouver in the first round.. hahaha..
phoenix wins their division.. who saw that coming? keep in mind that even the worst play off teams are still play off teams and are capable of stealing at least one game in a series..
here are my my first round picks..

the king is dead and stuff..

playoff hockey for the los angeles kings

if not dead then dying a slow painful gonna miss the post-season  death..
the los angeles kings have been about a month behind themselves this season.. think about it..

trade deadline roulette..


its that time.. the silly season is in full swing for the nhl.. with the trade deadline looming, many failing franchises are gonna unload salary and free up cap room or collect draft picks for next season... teams on the cusp of the playoffs are gonna be looking to pick up that next piece of the puzzle to vault them into a post-season berth.. the big name this february is rick nash.. needs outta columbus bad.. really bad.. look how well rostislav rusty klesla has played in phoenix since being delt by the blue jackets..

los angeles kings..

im sure dean lombardi has the kings in the mix... rumor has it that a pkg deal including team captain dustin brown could be offered up as trade bait for the potential high-scoring left winger.. thatd be too bad..

mike richards genuinely happy
mike richards not so genuinely happy
lombardi has already given away a lot of the kings future in order to win now only to see the team fail even harder... remember marco sturm.. dustin pancakes penner is the most obvious example.. simone gagne, but mike richards as well..  hes still so obviously butt-hurt about being traded away from philly that i dont think the kings can reasonably hope to get anything out of him moving fwd this season... he has a big cap hit too... you can see it in his demeanor during interviews... he was the man in philadelphia...  the captain, the franchise player, the next bobby clarke or keith premieu.. he was gonna lead the flyers to their third and (and perhaps more) stanley cup championship in 40 yrs.. and paul holmgren traded him in a really shitty way.. could be worse... jeff carter got exiled to columbus for jeebus sake... 
jeff carter scores a goal for columbus
if the kings are gonna send the hardest working guy on their team to failure in ohio, at least go after a player that will have a positive impact on the the team and make mike richards a better player... trade for jeff carter.. not rick nash... there isnt anyone on the kings roster at fwd that has the wheels or work ethic to play with rick nash and create an immediate impact.. except for dustin brown and prolly jason williams..
i think if the kings are gonna trade dustin brown.. and to be fair.. ive kinda seen this coming for a while.. i was surprised when he was named captain.. not because he doesnt deserve it - HE SO DOES - but because i figured that going fwd he was the only serviceable kings fwd that could be bait to land a top line winger.. and he never really lived up the the expectations when he was drafted as an expected high scoring fwd...  

travis moen

id really hate to see him traded but i think its inevitable.. that being said, trade him if you must but trade him to a decent franchise that has hit a skid, not a wasteland that will prolly fold or move or both before the next cba expires... trade him to montreal for travis moen..

two peas in a pod

  • brown for moen and a second round draft pick.. first round if travis doesnt resign for next season.. it could be a straight up swap, but moen is an ufa at the end of this season and brown has several yrs left..
  • brown to columbus for jeff carter... even swap..dustin will be crushed and the team will miss his leadership, his work ethic, and his never-say-die loyalty to a failed franchise... perfect for columbus but sucks for him..  carter would be re-united with his bosom buddy richards and together they could make magic on the ice.. either that or be butt-hurt together.. 
jeff carter & mike richards happy days
dustin brown on the move

i have to say though.. i think of all the rent-a-players currently being shopped before the trade deadline salary dump begins, travis moen is the guy that would help the kings the most..

pittsburgh penguins..

i was hoping hal gill would get traded back to the burgh.. nope.. hal done gone to nashville.. makes sense though, when you consider that ryan suter and/or shea webber are not gonna be predators after july 1st ish..
idk.. ryan malone maybe.. the penguins top priority is to resign james neal.. so.. what to do.. with all the uncertainty surrounding sid-the-kid and his cap hit.. the potential cap hit for neal and the fact that they are doing remarkably well considering all the man-games lost to injury.. paul martins ongoing fail at playing defense.. idk if ray shero is gonna be able to swing a deadline deal that doesnt blow up the core of the team..
they may not make a serious challenge for the cup this season if crosby doesnt return for the post season.. but as is they are a solid playoff team.. tinker if you must ray, but maybe the off-season is a better time to deal..

the hated really really dont like.. k, cant stand.. hope they never win another game philadelphia flyers..

..need a decent goal tender.. riding bobrovsky and a backup to be named later into the post season wont cut it in philadelphia.. i wonder, if paul holmgren had it to do all over again, would he still make the deal that landed bryzgalov in net knowing what we all know now.. id like to see ryan miller play for a contender but buffalo isnt about to move him.. especially to a conference rival.. jonathan bernier? depends i suppose on what the kings would get in return.. do the kings even have a decent backup guy in the system? expect the flyers to make a play for nikolai khabibulin or evgeni nabokov.. 

washington capitals.. 
oh so sexy sasha semin
need to win hockey games..
what to do with oh so sexy sasha semin.. i suggest the trade him.. send him to nashville as part of a pkg to land ryan suter or shea weber.. if suter decides to bail the preds and head into free agency, washington needs to do whatever it takes short of trading the great 8 to make the cap room to sign him.. what the crapitals really need is a decent goaltender.. too bad they have three backup guys that just cant cut it.. adding a great no. 1 defenseman will go a long way to making tomas vokoun a better net minder.. how long is gm gm gonna wait for mike green to get healthy and stay that way.. im thinking that greeny is made outta balsa wood, tissue paper, and elmers gloo... i thought olaf kolzigs rather candid remarks regarding ovenchickens rockstar lifestyle were right on the money.. i still think a more mature, older, seasoned veteran with proven leadership skills would be a better captain for this flailing franchise..

anaheim ducks..

the. ducks. could. go. all. the. way. to an early exit and a long summer playing golf, throwing farewell parties for teemu selane and trying to figure out what to do for next season.. they are  mad rolling right now and i suppose  they could sneak into the playoffs in the eighth spot..  a lot depends on the 5 other teams in the mix..  phx, minn, los, col, dal, cgy.. it would be quite a second half run for the mighty ducks to make the post season.. good thing all their fans are praying to um.. god? that his divine plan includes another cup run for the local hockey franchise..
if the ducks could add zach parise in the off season the loss of teemu selanne wouldnt hurt quite so much..

cheers.. david
