Thursday Kitty Litter. Eye-Eye Captain!


Back to back games have never been kind to the Florida Panthers and tonight might be no different as they take on two old friends in Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell.  No excuses though as the Bruins played last night too.

Horton Lazy ass seems to be having a decent year so far with eight goals and seven assists for 15 points to lead the Bruins.  Gregory Campbell on the other hand has his name in the news for other reasons.  Justin Bourne.

In other news, Mike Richards gets blasted by Four Habs Fans for being, well….Mike Richards.  It’s safe for work, but not for the little one’s.  Sometimes though, profanity must be used.  Before the David Booth hit, I tried to like Mike.  Since the hit, and after reading the above post, he’s kinda on my shit list. You?

For more on that story here’s TSN’s report.

Want to compare a real number one center and captain to yours (Little Stevie-the captain)?  Look no further than Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks, who got the Hat Trick last night against the Oilers.  When that little shit Weiss starts to play half, yea half as hard as Toews I’ll stop.

Speaking of captains, here’s a great post buy Cassie McClellan at From The Rink about great team leaders.

7 year old Isabella Kowalski from Philadelphia was hit in the head from a deflected shot by Ottawa’s Ryan Shannon Monday night.  Here’s the story and video interview of her from Puck Daddy.  Nice kid.

Elliotte Friedman covers the Colin Campbell mess and his 30 Thoughts to go along with it.

Finally, in case you missed it, here’s an updated story regarding the tragic death of Ottawa Senators Assistant Coach, Luke Richardson’s 14 year old daughter Daron.  Again, our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Richardson family.

    frank, how the hell is this management pleased with the season so far? Deboer has to go. Repik gets called up and he sits. Are you kidding me?

      Hank, I agree the poor judgement by the team is mindboggling. Just because we’re in a rebuild mode doesn’t mean we need to take everything in stride and just shrug our shoulders.

      Repik is like the divorced step child. It’s not fair the treamtent he gets.
