Boy Georges and Transatlanticism


Welcome to Laraque

...TSN.ca, whose investigative team is the best in the business, gives us their list of prominently rumored players who may be on the move by Tuesday.
Georges Laraque is not on the list.

...NHL.com, however, tells us the Pens are interested.

...The Post-Gazette says there is no evidence that a trade is imminent.


..............................................
ATLANTIC DIVISION

The Pens are 7 points back of New Jersey.
New Jersey is playing Saturday against Washington.
A New Jersey loss keeps the 7-point margin intact, while the Pens would have two games in-hand over NJD.

Speaking of 7 points, the Pens are 7 ahead of the Islanders.


The Rangers better follow this little dude's lead and buy some life jackets.
They're sinking fast.

But they are no match for the Flyers.


The deepest an entity has been in a hole since Baby Jessica.
Jessica McClure's Wikipedia Page.

...And the Norris Trophy goes to...Sergei Gonchar?

...Hurry up and get over to PittsburghSportsGuys. They are ranking NHL uniforms...

...Congratulations to Tony from The Confluence Blog, who has been appointed as Penguins blogger on Most Valuable Network...

...Funny question posed on a Devils blog ----- Blades of Steel: What Did He Say?!

Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff fined $10,000 by the NHL for his part in the scrap on Thursday night against the Ottawa Senators.

Is anyone a fan of "Celebrity Jeopardy" on SNL??? ......those were good times.....


"Saber!!! It started with a bloody 'S'!"
- Daryl Hammond as Sean Connery



By the way Kyle,
I'm with you about Johan Hedberg's mask--I loved it! I kinda miss him and how everyone would chant "Moooose", but Thibault and Marc-Andre Fleury are absolutely amazing.

Christina said...

tiffany -

that was my first thought when i saw the sean connery picture. i loved those skits!

add my name to the list of people who want to watch sens and sabres...i still can't get enough of that fight video from the other night!

tiffany said...

Man....I'm completely baffled as to what the ref is saying on Blades of Steel. I wanna say he says "Hit the pad!" But that doesn't really make sense. It was just as confusing when you were trying to figure out what the Speak 'N Spell guy said. "Spell eh-oh." Who's with me??

Antonette said...

I'd kill to be able to see the Sens/Sabres game tonight. Even if Emery's been told to keep his cool, it'll still be interesting. I really don't want to see any more Sabres hurt, though. Gotta feel bad for them.

And regarding the possible BGL trade. I'm trusting Ray Shero with whatever he does. He's done amazing things for this team already (RPM line, anyone?) so I'm thinking he knows what's up with the team and what will gel and what won't.

Tee said...

word is that the Laraque deal is already done, its just up to him waive his no trade clause. I love the guy, but he better do his job here and knock some people on their asses, unlike what he was doing in Phoenix (which is what caused Gretz to bench him)

tiffany said...

Christina,
Haha...I wish there were new skits, but the old ones will do. ;) Here are some I found on YouTube.

you know adam, this is sort of pathetic but bad horror movies are right up there with the pens on my "passions" list, but that category could include the 70's amazingly bad/awesome movie Jaws of Satan.

Blades of Steel was awesome, for one simple fact...

if you got into a fight and LOST, you got the penality!!!

hyzdufan said...

I'm fairly certain that in Blades of Steel, he was saying "Makes the pass!"

Jon said...

you guys want to see all the snl jeopardies, just go to thetravisty.com, and click the celebrity jeopardy link on the left...you can spend hours at this site, days even

kyle said...

I agree Tiffany, it doesn't get better than T-BO and MAF right now. I can understand MAF's troubles as of late, just because he is still young and has yet to play all the games that the Pens need him to in a season. So he's experiencing a new workload this season. And I've always liked T-Bo from his Avalanche and Habs days.

As for Celebrity Jeopardy, here's my two favorite Connery/Trebeck battles:

"This is the sound a doggie makes."
"Mooo."
Trebeck says thats wrong.
"Well thats the sound your mother made in bed last night Trebeck."

"Oh Trebeck. With your dago mustache and your greasy hair..."
"What did I just say about ethnic slurs?"

tiffany said...

Kyle,
LOL....I love those too!! I think I love them all. I watched so many clips today and watched them so many times before....I'm surprised I still crack up the way I do. =)

Jon,
I actually have a bunch of SNL videos on my computer, but I don't know how to share them. So, thanks for the site. I'll definitely use it in the future. :)


Did anyone see the highlights for the Sabres/Senators game? It looked like a pretty good one again, but no goalie fights this time...hehe.
