After what can only be described as the most boring offseason in history (despite the creation of our brand new team), the NHL is finally almost ready to spring it’s patented brand of fun mixed with chronic stupidity on its unsuspecting fanbase (the NHL sounds a lot like Hockeenight now that I think about it). […]
Category: Columbus Blue Jackets
There are shit shows, and then there’s what went down at the United Center tonight: a public enema. The Blackhawks hosted the Columbus Blue Jackets, a decidedly non-playoff team, and got the everloving shit kicked out of themselves in front of 22,000 horrified fans. How bad was the game, you ask? I would have rather […]
So, the Blackhawks traded Jeremy Morin to Columbus and almost immediately he got to face his old team. Which is fine. I’ve no beef with the Morin trade, other than it probably should have happened earlier. Morin’s got himself a place to play and even managed to get a point since we last saw him, so that’s nice. He was on the ice for Jack Skille’s (!) goal (!!!) tonight and was one of the few players to score in the shootout.
Anyway, there’s your Jeremy Morin update for the rest of time. Let’s move on to the rest:
Now that the Chicago Blackhawks have loaned the Stanley Cup to Los Angeles for the year, it’s time for us to once again peruse the various also-rans in the NHL before the Hawks get down to the formality of reclaiming the Cup in June 2015. We continue our series with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Here […]
When I started doing freelance hockey writing, I wrote for a site that didn’t make the Blackhawks beat available to me, so I chose the Columbus Blue Jackets. That was
the summer of 2012, about two months before the Rick Nash trade. After that anticlimactic crap, I quickly realized how utterly boring the Blue Jackets are. When people are confusing one of your
defensemen with a singer and the only remotely interesting player is the guy who used to play second fiddle to Ilya Bryzgalov, you’re a …
So, the Hawks beat the Predators tonight, clinching at least the 7th seed in the playoffs. Yay. Tonight’s Puckcast with Elaine from Crash the Net glosses that over and gets down to the important issues like:
- Which family member would Elaine replace with John Scott?
- Where should you never put Veet?
- Where are Steve Montador’s teeth?
- Why CT should be father of the year.
- GONNA DRINKEN!
- Vodka vs. Malort? WHO YA GOT?
- Next week’s Puckcast: fart noises.
Tonight had all the makings of a classic trap game. The Blackhawks had just smoked the rival Blues the night before in St. Louis, and probably couldn’t be blamed if they were looking ahead to a nationally televised game against the rival Red Wings on Sunday. In between, the putrid Blue Jackets come to the United Center, and not only are they bad, but they’re without the services of the great James Wisniewski.
- John Scott would KILL Zdeno Chara.
- The worst thing that Fork ever saw in the Nassau Coliseum.
- Kyle Beach and his draft class (which leads to a discussion of 10 other draft classes).
- Another pack of hockey cards.
- A Blues writer might be dumb.
- Kevin Hayes and his bid to join David Aardsma as an entry in Urban Dictionary.
