If A Woodchuck Tkachuk Wood



The Thrashers mean business.

Atlanta puts their entire franchise on the back of Keith Tkachuk.
They trade Glen Metropolit and three (potentially four) high draft picks to St. Louis.

They also trade top prospect Braydon Coburn to Philly for Alexei Zhitnik.

.....................................

TSN says Laraque is by no means a guarantee to come here.
Dallas, Vancouver, and Calgary have shown more interest.

Former Pen Andre Roy was suspended for three games...

[ Post-Gazette ]

He received an automatic three-game suspension for violating Rule 41.4 (Category III), which deals with abuse of an official, at the end of a 6-2 loss to Boston Friday, after complaining about the performance of the referees and feigned a head-butt at one of the officials.

"It's all about the name on the back [of the sweater], and the number," Roy said. "If it's anybody else, maybe a 10-minute misconduct. But it's Andre Roy. We'll suspend him. They just like to [expletive] me.

"This [expletive] league, where's all the emotion? You used to be able to [expletive] let your emotions out, say what you think. ... I spoke, and I faked a head-butt, or something like that. And they [expletive] suspend me.

"I'm very surprised. Very, very, very surprised. But ... [NHL executive] Colin Campbell likes to [expletive] me every time. So [expletive] him."


All three members of the Andre Roy fan club are pumped.

...Columbus Blue Jacket Rick Nash is in love with himself...

Go Pens.

supposedly the deal is done and BGL just needs to waive his no trade clause... that's the holdup accoring to a few sites i've seen.

Elizabeth said...

Antonette said...

Nice catch, anonymous.

why would we throw away draft picks for a guy that has zero hockey skill instead of trying to get a solid defenseman to replace melichar?

Staff said...

exactly.

The banner on Rick Nash's website looks like something out of "Tom Goes to the Mayor."

"If A Woodchuck Tkachuk Wood"

Another classic title.... ;)


And along with what someone else said earlier, whatever Ray Shero decides to do I'm sure will work out. If we get Laraque, we get him. If we don't, we don't.

Also Anonymous, I have to tend to agree with you:
"why would we throw away draft picks....instead of trying to get a solid defenseman to replace melichar?"

tiffany said...

Hmmm......I dunno. You can't really judge by one game, but so far this period Melichar is lookin' pretty good.

To those who watched it, how bad did they play? It was brutal listening to it i ended up stopping. Damn tampa bay why do they own us?! Oh well we're still in the playoffs right now that's what really matters..... just hope we don't play TB.

GO PENS!

rachel said...

That game was just pathetic...

tiffany said...

Ohhhh man......I don't remember the last time the team played this bad. I'm not sure if it was tied with or more depressing and frustrating than when our winning streak was broken. Ah well....c'est la vie....

Keep pushin' for the playoffs Pens!!!

...did anyone notice Melichar being put on the line with Gonchar against Tampa Bay's 1st line??

Does Florida have kryptonite under their ice to thwart Mark Eaton??

hey adam, did you hear theres a jurassic park 4 coming out? we should go see it!!!! let me know.

Justin said...

no wonder lecavalier and st louis have so many goals, they play every other shift....sheesh

rachel said...

Karri, I definitely saw Melichar out with Gonchar. I think Melichar had a pretty decent game.

What is seriously up with Eaton? He kept randomly falling and hasn't looked his amazing self these past couple games...

Scott said...
