5 things

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

  1. Well, it wasn't quite a bagskate... actually, it was probably a lot more productive than those stupid bagskates. Anyway, Guy gave the Hammies hell for being crappy the other night. He even kicked PK out of the practice at one point (lesson learned: never a break a stick and then to proceed to accidently almost hit your coach with the broken pieces of said stick. Particularly when your coach is in a very bad mood to begin with). For their sake, they better win tonight.............

  2. Speaking of the Hammies... they're working on a new lease with Copps Coliseum. Boo. I actually think Copps Coliseum is probably waaaaay too big for them. I mean really, it seats 17,000 people or something and they only get 2 or 3 thousand people on  most nights? If Copps Coliseum is anything like The Cave, then the atmosphere is probably deader than the Whalercanes playoff chances. Also, I don't like the NHL clause in the lease. The last lease said that if Hamilton was to get an NHL team, they could kick the Hammies out without any real notice. I really don't like that.....obviously.

  3. I'm already getting tired of hearing about Taylor Hall and the Draft.....if my team doesn't have a chance of drafting him then forget it. I don't want to know.

  4. You know that CHL top prospects thing that nobody is going to watch (including sadly, me because I will be watching the Habs lose in person)? Well, two of my guys will be there. IceDogs goalie Mark Visentin will be there as will Aubry! No idea why Aubry will be there, but he will be there so nyah!

  5. Potatoes are the most awesome food in the world, okay? 

Oh and... what the hell Bradley?!

Jeez..... I don't understand why Ovie can't fight (and the general thoughts from both the Caps and the Caps fan is that Ovie shouldn't be fighting). Hey, if The Crysob can "fight" then Ovie can too. Okay that was a bad example... hang on... okay, if Ilya can fight so can Ovie! Hey, I just noticed that in both examples it's a Panther getting beat up.

Have you seen this article in the Hamilton Spectator? Link

I wanted to write something about it, but well, I had not much more to say than what was already in the article... It's really weird that Hamilton doesn't seem to pay much attention to the Dogs this season. They're really playing great hockey, and yet no one shows up to watch them... :/

I hope they won't move out of Hamilton. I have to say, I don't really care about the city. I've never been there, and I've absolutely no connection to that place. But I just hate to see teams moving.

I did see that.... D:

During one of his pessimistic phases, Flandersdude was saying that the Moosies' guy was saying that everyone was ticked off with the Moosies when they first arrived. They felt that they should have still had an NHL team and they sort of took it out on the Moosies.

I wonder if there's some kind of attitude like that in Hammie-town? They feel like it's an NHL team or nothing.

That or they really don't care about hockey in their city.... which isn't good in the least....

If they moved then they couldn't be the Hammies anymore D: Unless they moved to a city who's name started with HAM....

Ooh, they would stay the Hammies for us. It sounds better than the St John'sies anyway!

Or Lavalsies. Just read this morning that their owner would not dismiss the idea of moving them to Laval in the future....Major Junior hockey didn't work there. why would a AHL team work there?
