Detroit Red Wings’ goalie Chris Osgood says he can hardly wait to have a beer because he hasn’t had one in two months because of the playoffs. I know exactly how he feels, only instead of playoffs, it’s graveyard shifts.
Is there any truth to the rumour that when Penguins’ star Evgeny Malkin was awarded the Conn Smythe trophy and the team celebrated winning the Stanley Cup, his mom and dad back home put up a sign at their house that read, “If this dacha’s rockin’, don’t bother knockin’.
What’s worse, the Habs not making the playoffs, or getting swept in the first round by Boston?
I can see this leading to a problem. Molson’s has decided they want to possibly own the Montreal Canadiens, as they did for so many years before. But what if a Montreal Canadiens’ fan prefers Labatt’s over Molson’s? It’s complicated.
Sidney Crosby’s beard may someday be officially called a beard.
As far as I could see anyway, cameras during the entire playoffs, from start to finish, showed precious little of players’ wives sitting in the stands.
Patrick Roy’s son Jonathan, who has decided to become a singer, is being guided by Celine Dion’s husband, Rene Angelil. Coincidently, Celine and Rene have expressed interest in becoming owners of the Montreal Canadiens. So does this mean that somewhere down the road, Patrick and Jonathan could conceivably be running the team? Jonathan might be called upon to sing the national anthem. And then there’s that possibility that Patrick could become Mario Tremblay’s boss!
Gary Bettman, in a bid to show the world that Phoenix is indeed a hockey market, is planning the very first Phoenix Winter Carnival. Gary has admitted though, that finding a snowman mascot has been difficult because of melting. And toboggan races may not be all that exciting there.
Approximately 125 days left until hockey season.
