Hey, maybe there is something to the Anointed One

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

We all know that in game three, Gonchar went out with a serious injury when Ovie collided with him, right? The Pens fans were screaming to have Ovie suspended for life for a deliberate attempt at death by kneeing. Gonchar's injuries were apparently severe enough that he would be out for the rest of the playoffs (assuming that the Penguins were to make it past the Capitals).

Well, guess what? Today we have reports that Gonchar was seen practicing on the ice with the team.

This is amazing when we consider that he was supposed to be at death's door after that attempt to finish his career by Ovie. I have no idea how he made such a miraculous recovery other than to surmise that it must have been the work of the Anointed One. We doubted his abilities but today, people, we have proof that the Anointed One can cure his teammates.

Actually, apparently his magic curing abilities aren't just limited to his own team. Remember Scott Walker's smashing of Aaron Ward's face? Ward was supposed to be a goner too. But now we have reports that he too will be back on the ice tonight for the dratted Bs. Hallelujah!

All hail the Anointed One and his magic curing abilities. We were wrong to doubt you.

No comment on The Detroit Red Wings and The Boston Bruins going to Game 7? I still say The Anaheim Ducks will beat Detroit and Carolina will Loose to the Bruins.

Gonch was skating, not praticing. No way in hell he's gonna play. You can skate and walk okay on a knee without some ligaments, but making sharp turns is another story.

Eep. That's actually really too bad... I was kinda hoping he'd be in... Sorry to hear that =(

Well, we'll see. I haven't seen a hit like that end well. I'm looking at you, Dan McGillis on Darius Kasparaitis (though it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy) and Ulf Samuelsson on Cam Neely.

Yup... we shall see... =)
