St. Louis Blue Season Preview

Who gives a shit about the blues.



Apparently that cracker.

John Davidson looks like Dr. Phil.



Brad "Little" Boyes is a solid player for them, but whatev.

Hossa might score 50 goals against them.

Go Pens

Dr. Phil = Wayne Gretzky

Let us not forget that Erik Johnson is likely out for the season due to playing golf cart polo.

Raybin said...

I predict Paul Kariya contributes by scoring 6 goals...one for each million they paid him.

Fear not, though, Blues fans! With Chris Mason and Manny Legace in goal, you'll be unstoppable!

*cough*

Hossa? Joke.

Brad "Little" Boyes.

Oh Pensblog, you've done it again!

Aron said...

the blues game on Nov 1, may be my only chance this year to see the Pens.

White people shouldn't rap...

RaCHeLeYoS said...

the student rush schedule is depressing.... who knows if i'll even make it to a game this year..

grrrrrrrr

thug life.

Victor Raison said...

When did thePensblog hire Chris Berman?

BlacknGold66 said...

The only thing that saves this guy is the PJ poster in the background.

He should stick to Pearl Jam and quit rapping.

Oh man, that video is hilarious. But sadly we do know that we suck. Even if we did have Erik Johnson playing this year we would still suck. But please, please never mention that the Red Wings are going to stomp us again this year. We know they're going to, but we don't need to be reminded of how they've owned us for the past 10 years.

Although, I think last year the Blues might've won the season series vs. Detroit. Andy Murray might not be able to get us into the playoffs, but at least he makes us competitive against Detroit.

I noticed at the game on Saturday [hey, I'm old and my brain function is slow....mmmmmk?] from my E-level perch, that the South End Goal Judge was GONE!!!!...and replaced with nacho cheese stained red seats with yinzers sitting in 'em....I couldn't tell at the North End [zamboni entrance] if the little Goal Booth with similar Little Goal Judge was gone as well...

Does anyone know where, one of the last symbols of Old.Time.Hockey. went to? [I realize that other teams have been doing this starting last season]

•the Press Box? [double M...you're in my seat!]
•one in Mario's Box [Austin!...put down that buzzer!...it's not a toy!!!] and the other suspended from the dome with wires? [David Blaine style]

someone needs to get 'Terrible' Terry Tate on this!

Turk, sadly I think they've been replaced by cameras. I noticed last season that John Barbero no longer announces goal judges (Leo Rrrrrrrudsky) and I think I remember reading that they're no longer required.

Max Power said...

dr t

Since all of the reviews are now done at the NHL HQ up in syrup land they've replaced goal judges with cameras to make more accurate calls

WufPirate said...

St. Louis Game Time = solid Blues blog.

Dr. Turkleton said...

DA....

I could've sworn I heard the off-ice officials called out by Barbaro [the Man, not the Horse] during the season last year...during the playoffs, not so sure...since they bring in other NHL off-ice officials to do playoff games.

max....

there are still Goal Judges along with the ever-popular Video Goal Judges...as both are still listed in the new 2009 NHL Rulebook. I don't think they've gone the way of the dodo quite yet...just under some sort of relocation plan:

Rule 37 – Goal Judge

37.1 General Duties - He shall signal, normally by means of red light, his decision as to whether the puck passed between the goal posts and entirely over the goal line. His only decision is whether the puck actually entered the net, not how or when it went in. The light must be illuminated for a period of five (5) seconds each time the puck enters the net regardless of circumstances. It is up to the Referees and/or Video Goal Judge to decide if it is a goal.

37.2 Communication - The Goal Judge must be connected to the penalty bench by a form of communication (usually phone) in the event that the Referees finds it necessary to consult with him.

37.3 Location - There shall be one Goal Judge situated behind each goal(or in an area designated and approved by NHL Hockey Operations), in properly protected areas, if possible, so that there can be no interference with their activities. They shall not change goals during the game.

Someone's still gotta turn the Red Light on, eh?

I sat right behind the now-non-existant goal judge last night and STILL didn't notice he was gone.


Epic fail.

The Big K said...

Johnson hurt himself on the fucking golf course, and is now out for the year. To think I was actually mad when the Blues took him one before Staal in 2006. Fucking idiot.

Anyways, Brad Boyes better come to play this year, because I have him on all three of my fantasy teams.

Dr. Turkleton said...

stokes...

I guess I'll give you a 'Pass' for not noticing! ;) [hehehe]

I emailed Molinari...if there's one man in this town that will get to the bottom of this crisis [HA!], it's D.M.

Dr. Turkleton said...

the big K...

the best thing for Brad 'Likes' Boyes was to get out of Baastan.

Their D is gonna be sick a few years down the road with Johnson & Pietrangelo manning the blue-line.

Annie said...

Frozen in Time 1992-93 Penguins is on at 8 on NHL network.

Beav said...

@ Annie

Great catch. What an excellent show. So great to see the old highlights of 66 burying it.

meecrofilm said...

shoez = domination.

didn't catch dorothy briere the first time. nice touch.

Stoosh said...

Brad Boyes = Erie Otters hockey legend

Stoosh = Erie native and embarrassment to his hometown

Coincidence?

Probably.

But I'm seldom like to miss a glaring opportunity to point out that Brad Boyes played his junior hockey in my hometown.

"I cannot raise a child to suck as bad as me."

HAHA...Sh0ez.....

And what the fuck was that "rap?" His beatboxing sounds like a cartoon car that putters across a dirt road.

stokes said...

So, i finally watched that video with sound. i watched literally the first 12 seconds. i've never been so embarrassed for someone in my whole life.


WOW

Nice job, Shoez.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Bugsy scored his first preseason goal!! WOO! Lightning is winning right now, and Bugsy is a reason. Damn, I would be making fun of them this season if it wasn't for Ryan.

Steve In Denver said...

His beat box sounds like wet flatulence.
