How embarassing

by smike

Sigh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Once again, the Sabres show up with a terrible effort, beat by the worst team in the freaking league. Ugh, Crap on a Stick part 65. Today, brothers and sisters, I am embarrased to say that I am a Sabrefan. How humiliating. Ugh!!!!!

As I said earlier.....

by Kent

And I'm REALLY sorry for repeating myself. (Mr.A) Trade Hasek for a pure goal scorer and a handful of draft picks. Satan WON'T lead this team anywhere. Especially into the corners. He never goes there. Dealing Hasek loosens up alot of Cabbage to sign free agents in the off season too.

No finals this year Smike...face it. Don't be embarrased to be a Sabre fan though.

Okay you Penguin girls........

by Kent

whats the score gonna be tonite?

The "No Jagr" excuse will be accepted by me. But you can only use it ONCE! The Barrasso excuse can be used at free will....if he's in net.

In return.....I can use the excuse about our second line. There are better second lines in most rap songs.

I'm a little quezy about the fact the Oilers have had a long lay-off. Coupled with the fact Pitt just came off a thumping, will probably be fired up and raring to go. The Oilers have spotted 2 goal leads in the 1st period in their last 4 games.

Should be an interesting game. 2 fast teams that don't use the trap.

My prediction for tonight's game...

by Peggy

Jagr's still going to be out which will hurt us big time!

I am hoping that Barrasso hasn't been able to join the team and is waiting for them to return to Pittsburgh...

I think since Aubin did so bad in the last game he is going to do 100% better tonight... will 100% better give us the win?

I think it's going to be close... I would say the final score tonight will be 3-2

And if I were a betting woman, I'd have to put my money on the Penguins

So what was your final score and winning team pick, Kent?

Thats not good for an Oiler fan....

by Kent

Usually teams that get blown out are very strong and determined in the following game. That would be me Oil. The Pens have 3 days to stew over it now..........sheeeeesh.

Not to mention your Pens helped relight the "flame" of confidence that lives down HWY #2 south of us. They really needed a BIG win like that. Thanks......lol.

Look for a determined Penguins team against an unusually confident Oiler club. Two quick teams should make for a good game.

If we win 2-1 and Barnaby gets the Penguin goal.....it will seem like a loss for me. I'm looking forward to a typical Barnaby game on Sat. 12 penalty mins. Couple dives. Mouthing off. The whole package. He's actually fun not to like. I'm looking forward to it.

I like Kasperaitus. How much does he make? He has "Oiler defenceman" written all over him. Alot like Jason Smith.....but dirtier. If you don't know who Jason Smith is......you will by Sunday.....lol.

Scary stuff 'round here...

by

I came home from school late today (rehearsals and stuff... I'm never home on time) and I went to sit at the computer and low and behold there's some "special report" on TV and I asked my mom what happened. Scary scary scary...

Lately it seems that violence (I mean major stuff like what happened this afternoon) has become a lot more prevalent, both in sports, school, and everywhere. Why, just before Christmas there was a kid in my class that supposedly had a hit list of 200+ people... And then, of course, the Mcsorely incident in sports... It's all starting to get a little too freaky for me... There are a ton of good people around, but it's always the bad stuff that gets publicized.

The Shame of Hockey

by Mr. A

This is Allen Fotheringham's column, March 1, 2000--

In all the fuss over Marty McSorley, the most remarkable thing is being
overlooked.

The Vancouver police are "investigating" the incident, trying to decide
whether or not to lay charges. How many weeks does it take to
"investigate" the televised scene of one man clubbing another man over the
head with a large wooden stick?

Even the general manager of the Vancouver Canucks, whose Donald Brashear was the
victim of McSorley's attack, wishes the police would stay out of it and let hockey "take
care of its own."

Hockey, of course, doesn't care about its own. There's ample evidence of that - one
spectacular example coming the night of March 22, 1979, in Queen's Park Arena in New
Westminster, Vancouver's sister city.

It was the final regular season game in junior hockey for the New Westminster Bruins and
the Portland Winter Hawks - a meaningless game since both teams had made the playoffs
and the Bruins had clearly lost the game 4-1.

There were just four seconds left - akin to the McSorley game - with a faceoff in the
Portland end. Punch McLean, coach and co-owner of the Bruins, put on the ice his biggest
goons and benchwarmers playing out of position.

As the puck was dropped, the Bruins shucked their gloves and sticks and attacked the
Winter Hawks. McLean sent his entire team over the boards. Portland coach Ken Hodge
held his team back. That made it 16 Bruins on the ice to five Winter Hawks.

Bruin Boris Fistric, 18, his team's highly penalized "policeman," immediately dropped
Portland's Blake Wesley with a blow to his throat.

Bruins Bill Hobbins, 19, and Rod Roflick, 17, pinned Wesley's arms to let Bruce Howes,
19, smash in his face. When Wesley finally made it to the dressing room, a sportscaster
said he was "almost unrecognizable."

Fistric skated to the Portland bench and slugged coach Hodge full in the face, sending his
glasses flying and causing headaches that lasted for two days.

Howes, at the dropping of the puck, drove Jim Dobson to the ice with a blow to his head.
Terry Kirkham, 20, and Richard Amann, 18, came to assist Howes in the beating.

THREE ON ONE

In the words of a judge who would later try them, "Two of the Bruins would hold
Dobson's arms while a third would hit him in the face and chest area. They would then
switch positions, with one of the three doing the hitting as the other two held Dobson."

In a pitiful scene replayed for TV watchers with strong stomachs, a bloodied Portland
player crawled desperately for his bench, half-conscious, a crippled animal seeking shelter.


The New Westminster captain, John Paul Kelly, skated to the Portland bench, swung his
stick like a scythe and smashed Coach Hodge on the wrist, mashing his wrist watch to
smithereens.

In the dressing room the surviving Portland players were in tears. Their top player, Keith
Brown, thought to be the best-skating junior defenceman since Bobby Orr, was kept off
the ice late in the game because of the obvious McLean tactic to cripple him for the
playoffs.

Portland's second-best player, Perry Turnbull, was wiped out in the second period when
Fistric high-sticked him and Turnbull swallowed his tongue. There were 191 penalty
minutes handed out in the game, 156 of them to the Bruins.

SUCCESSIVE CUPS

This was the team that had just won two successive Memorial Cups for McLean, who
once was suspended for 25 games for slugging a referee skating past his bench.

When the previous year his Bruins, as Canadian champions, were sent to Finland for the
World Junior Championships, Ottawa was so nervous that sports minister Iona
Campagnolo had External Affairs types give the team briefings and, still fearful, had Bobby
Hull deliver a lecture on conduct abroad.

Seven of the Bruins in the gang-beating were charged in B.C. provincial court and, goofily,
were given conditional discharges.

Judge J.K. Shaw, while banning them from hockey until Dec. 1, concluded: "These young
men are manipulated - apparently happily - by the owners and coaches to do exactly what
they are told."

Typically, Fistric and Kelly, were the two Bruins selected in the NHL draft. At a recess
during the trial, a smirking Boris Fistric proudly signed autographs for admiring youngsters.

That's the way hockey takes care of its own.

Isolated incidents.....

by Kent

This McSorely thing is getting really old. The good out of it? Tighten your chin straps. Show more respect to other players. Hopefully the league will take measure to stop the taunting and showboating.........like in football.

Brash constantly flex's in front of players benches....ALWAYS! At times Laraque has challenged him to a fight after the Flexing and he backs down. Whenever he does go with Laraque, he clutches him and plays dance partner. Even when he has clearly lost a fight he showboats. Or even when he hasn't fought and the opposing team has no chance of coming back in the game. It's as predictable as Jagr gay little salute. I don't think any of that is good sportsmanship. I think refs should impose penalties for this behaivor. I DON'T think any taunting is a green light for blind-siding someone in the head with the stick though. Please don't get me wrong. All Brashear deserved was a good Whooping.

Ever since the Marty incident people have been dredging up ISOLATED INCIDENTS from the million or so games of any hockey games over the past 30 years. Your story is an exception and I feel the coaching should have been dealt with harshly.

Charging McSorely is ridiculous! All Hockey players know that going in it is a dangerous game. Next there will be charges for elbowing and cross checking.

If Pavel Bure ran up to Tinordi in a bar and elbowed him in the face so hard it knocked him out when he wasn't looking should he be charged? Almost stoped Tinordi from ever working again! Yeah I think he should be charged. Did he get charged by the Police for it when he pulled it in the Playoffs? No he didn't..........and I don't care! It's hockey......and it's alot better than it used to be. How about the Ted Green/Wayne Maki incident?
The Richard Riot. Running around clubbing officials and golf swinging players. THESE measure up to the Marty incident and happened a LOOOOOONNNNNG time ago. That making them "isolated incidents" in a whole truckload of hockey games.

Charging Pro Hockey players for incidents on the ice is wrong.......unless on the scale of the junior game Mr.A dredged up of course. Also those kids were not taking the inherent risks of hockey while collecting millions of dollars for it. I don't think you will ever see something like that in pro hockey. Pro hockey "it seems like only i beleive" is going in a postive direction in protecting its players.

Sheeeeesh...............Maybe if we start charging them this will happen. All the players can skate around the ice with feathers in their helmets. Should somebody ruffle them a polce man can skate on to the ice and hand cuff the players.

Alot of Americans in the league now too. You know how much they like lawsuits....lol. The lawyers could sit behind the penalty box and serve subpoena's over the glass to the players.

I really hope we don't have to talk about Marty for a while now if ever..........is that good enough.....i think so.

Circus on the bench

by Kent

Peg.....I watched the Sens/Pens game the other day. Talk about alot of suits on the bench. There's Patrick, then there's Hlinka, then I see Ed Johnston? Throw in a trainer and an equipment manager too. Why don't they get the goaltending coach to come stand there too. Maybe Mario also.

I'll bet if Badger Bob (god rest his soul) was alive he would be standing there too. What does Ed Johnston do besides open and close the bench door?

Honest I'm not trying to be a smart ass. It's got to be a distraction to the players. And especially to all those coaches. It's funny to watch them trip all over each other back there.

I can't see this set up being beneficial. Too many egos. Likely some differences are going to rise on how the team is run. If I'm a player.......which one do I listen to?

Fill me in.

I did notice when our new coach from Czech arrived that it looked a little more crowded. Actually I feel bad to say, I'm not really sure why we have so many coaches... I thought EJ took over when we fired the last coach, then Herb Brooks took over, and I never thought about it that EJ stayed... and to be honest I haven't noticed CP on our bench...

Acording to the Igloo Report....

Jaromir Jagr will not miss the rest of the season as some have speculated. It is now expected that Jagr will only miss an additional two weeks.

The announcers at the game last night though said he was still out indefinetely, I sure hope not! I'm not so pewl concerned, but I'd have to have him lose his point lead because of some cheap shot taken to him in the final seconds of a game.

Pittsburgh Tribune has more to say about Jagr's condition...

by Peggy

Penguins captain Jaromir Jagr was expected to be released Monday night from UPMC Montefiore Hospital in Oakland.

Jagr was admitted Wednesday with a blood swelling his left thigh. He had the swelling surgically removed Friday.

There still is no timetable for Jagr's return to the lineup, though Penguins coach Herb Brooks said yesterday that it is "probably a minimum of two weeks."

The Penguins play only two games in the next seven days but then play four in the following six days. General manager Craig Patrick said he expected Jagr to start range-of-motion exercises this week. Jagr suffered a charley horse Feb. 16 in a game against the Buffalo Sabres when Sabres captain Michael Peca drove his knee into Jagr's leg.

A sad day for Tom Barrasso and his family

by

Tom Barrasso's father has been fighting brain cancer for a while and when I got home tonight I was shocked to see that'd he'd passed away. I'm not a big fan of Tommy, but just keep him and his family in your prayers.

Condolences to the Barrasso Family....

I don't care for Tommy either, but this is still very sad for him and his family... I hope the time that they have spent waiting for this to happen helps ease the pain...

and I hope he takes the rest of the season off to grieve...

Ugh! Somebody shoot me!

by smike

Eleven goals and two days later, the sabres crawl back to barfallo on there bellies, a pathetic effort if ever one was displayed. Holy Crap, what is wrong with the coach of my team, hasek, after returning to brilliance, gets slapped up the head for eleven goals in sixty minutes. Clearly he was off his game, both yesterday and tonight but, oh gee, who the hell is in net????

When will Ruff exploit the beuaty of the sabres goaltending duo, Hasek should have been pulled after the first, three goals down, Biron , when hasek is not on, would have at least kept us in the game.

Cest le vive, congrats to the leafers......

Excuses....excuses......

by Kent

I suppose your gonna use the "It's are first year in the league" excuse now? Not good enuff! You guys have Ferraro not us. Should I go on?....Okay I will.........Brunette(actually isn't he blonde?)...........Galanov(looked like Bobby Orr to me on Friday...don't know about you?).........Who's this Sylvestre guy?....14 goals? You have players we never even HEARD of with 14 goals! Get Hasek and go to the Finals.........just don't give up too much of your talent though........lol.

Okay seriously now. I thought they Thrashers were a pretty resilient team on Friday. That was a game where the Oilers woulda folded the tent last year. The Oilers have loads of confidence right now. 17 of a possible 22 points so far in Febuary. Thats .770 hockey. But the Thrashers kept battling back. Salo had to steal the game in the 3rd for the Oilers. I didn't watch the Flames game last night but I would guess the Thrashers were outta gas. They skated pretty good with the Oilers and put alot of pressure on the puck.

Kent, time for school on my Thrashers...

by ms. landers

I love my team, we have a good crew--not much speed, but guts and lots of go go juice. The big problem has been Damien the Bad Omen. Rhodes was supposed to steal several wins for the boys, but he's just stealin salary since November. This is the costliest "high ankle sprain" I've ever heard of. Who was that Maple Leaf that scored a game winner after being carted off with a broken leg???

Look out for Patrik Stefan next year. He is just recently starting to put on a show. I see him, Hnat Domenichelli, and Sean Donovan as a pretty good line next year. Donovan's been out a month or more with a broken foot.
Hey Kent, rumors have Kelly B. possibly heading back your way for the playoff run. Hope so for Bucky's sake. He's been a great leader.

Don't think the Oilers want to make any changes to disrupt things. But Bucky wouldn't be a disruption.........being he was just here.

Almost killed himself trying to hit Guerin. That was sorta scary.

That Stefan is supposed to be really talented.

by Enough is enough!

I am sick of not being able to look in the paper without seeing McSorely crap everywhere. All the sports pages on the web have polls and surveys in every spare space of the computer screen.

They (the media) sure have dramatized this alot. I was pretty dramatic myself on my first post about the issue. But I have chilled out. It is not the worst i seen.

Pavel Bure put Tinordi (or was it Churla?)out for a very long time with a vicious blindside elbow in the playoffs. Dave Browns vicious crosscheck was worse. Claude Lemeiux on Kris draper was nothing to sniff at either.

If any thing good came out, its the thing about chin straps. Maybe they could address some of the showboating too! Like Brashears muscle flexing in front of the bench. He ALWAYS does that. Even when he loses.....which makes it even more maddening.

I also HATE Jagr taking off his glove and kissing his fingers like that. GOD that looks SO stupid! I don't it find to classy myself. Makes me want to slap his fat little face!!!! Modano publicly voiced his opinion too. He thinks it shows a lack of respect. He also said "Geez, you think the guy would get sick of doing that". No kidding. He looks like such an idiot. You think Mario would take him aside and say "Hey Jammie......that looks REALLY gay when you do that.....don't do it no more.........okay?

Anyone around... I want to gripe!

by Peggy

For one I am still a bit pissed that Jagr is in the hospital from a cheap shot that wasn't penalized...

But then tonight, a Flyer plowed into our goalie with a few seconds left in OT, Philly scored while our goalie was going down underneath another of their players... and they won... it's just B***S*** You either call the rules all the time, or get a new job... the refs wouldn't even look it over to see what happened...

It's just frustrating me, cause I used to enjoy the hockey games... but anymore... when the game is over I'm just flustered... it's not because the Penguins are losing either, I'm getting used to that... and I'm not by any means siding with McSorely, but he was given the maximum punishmnet for what he did, and so many have done the same and even worse and gotten less... whatever happened to consistency?

I guess I wish Jagr still had his long hair and I wasn't really into hockey, just into watching Jagr like I used to be... sometimes ignorance is bliss....

Sigh

The Penguins are starting to make me mad. They play strong in little spurts and then when you're least expecting it they do something stupid and the other team comes right in and beats all of them. I guess I shouldn't complain, at least the Pens are still around... They could be in Seattle or Kansas...

And about Jagr... You know as well as anyone that I don't worship the guy. But I am mad about that. Oh well though... What's done is done and I guess we have to hope that something just will be done next time.

that the Pens just didn't have their guard up why they lost? That Flyer player plowed our goaled before the other flyer hit the shot that scored, Aubin didn't have a chance to try and stop that puck...

Not necessarily

by

The goal that won the game for the Flyers wasn't because the Pens just weren't their sharpest... But I don't think it should've been a goal because the net was off... But oh well, you know how officiating goes.

It's just that if you watch most of their goals, it is almost like they're just playing in little spurts. They're strong for a while and then one little mistake happens and everything starts going wrong for them...

Oh, I heard Jagr was released from the hospital after they drained fluid from his bruise.

Jagr Hospitalized....

by Peggy

Last night they admitted Jagr to the hospital, not for the hamstring injury he got in the Tampa Bay game, but from swelling on the opposite leg from where Peca took that cheap stab at him in the knee in the last few seconds of the game.

So I guess McSorely should've just gone after Brashear in the knee?! You figure, if he had of, McSorely would still be playing, but he could've put Brashear's career on hold... isn't this the message the NHL is putting out?

Just something to ponder... Peca's UNPUNISHED cheap shot to Jagr's knee, may also be why Jagr wasn't playing up to par the next night against TB and set him up for the hamstring injury... if these injuries are from Peca's cheap shot... they could cost Jagr the rest of this season, from being high scorer, and keep the Penguins from making it to the playoffs... and there was NO punishment given!
