Welcome to the second period of the Hockey Thread, you can find the first period here in case you need to check the highlights.
So, Audette and Bulis are going to be out INDEFINATELY. There must be some kind of curse on my Habs so I would implore anyone with a knowledge of the white arts to pop by and voice some incantation to keep any more of their players from getting sidelined.
Audette had surgery to repair damaged tendons in his arm after the injury he suffered Saturday night. I knew by the way he was holding his hand after the injury that something was seriously wrong.
Don’t even get me started on the fact that the holiest of all hockey shrines has been turned into a theatre.
So, little has been said here about the upcoming Olympics and since this is a thread devoted to all things hockey perhaps people have some thoughts opn this…
I hope Roy develops a nasty rash for not playing. Just what is his damage anyways? He and Gretz should get their shit together, have a little talk to work out their differences and get on with it. This is the Olympics, Canadian pride is on the line here and we just don’t accept second best. Mind you, our second best could be someone like Curtis Joseph so that’s not all bad.
Ryan Smith said that his rehab is coming along really well and he is optomistic that he’ll make the Olympics. It won’t be the same without him taking up his spot in front of the oposition net as few people do it any better than he.
I love that new commercial where the U.S. border guy asks the bus driver if he has anything to declare… just some Team Canada t-shirts (he says) and as we look into the bus we see a bunch of crazed Canadian fans, one who screams “AND A BIG OLD CAN OF WHUPASS!” How true.
