Why I hate Kevin Bieksa

So right now, as I write this, I'm in a bad mood. Just kinda frustrated with everything, really. So I decided to take out this frustration on a favourite target of mine, Kevin Bieksa. I guess it starts at the fact that his appearance for the Canucks coincided

I'm going outside

I thought you guys might like an FTB for today, so here you go.  Not much to say, it's 25 and gorgeous outside so that's where I'll be.  Here's your links. * As we wait for the Kaberle move, Vintage Leaf remembers the

Thank you, Bettman

So this off-season, until recently, had been shaping up as one of the most painful, boring off-seasons I could remember.  Last year there was a flurry of free agent signings, interesting trades (I still can't believe the Habs gave up their best prospect for Gomez), and optimism around

Who is Marek Svatos?

Now that Kovalchuk is officially off the market and not a Leaf, I thought I'd take a look at another young scoring free agent winger - Marek Svatos. Svatos is only 28 years old, but has had a checkered career thus far. He came into the league with

Puppies rule

I did little to nothing this weekend aside from relax, visit family and drink beer outside. It was pretty darned great. All of this was made better by having my puppy with me when we went out to visit family and drink beer. Grandma has a massive back yard that

Movie Night

So Friday night movie night was a tradition for me when I was in college.  I had 30+ hours of class a week, plus a minimum of double that in homework, so Friday night was my scheduled time to relax.  My brother played baseball, so my sister in law and

What would you do with the cup?

So everyone knows the Old Spice commercial: I'm the man your man could smell like. Old Spice has decided to continue building on the popularity of this commercial with a twitter account - @OldSpice. He's been answering random questions from people on facebook, yahoo, twitter etc.

On Fernando Pisani

Before he left for his European vacation (or fishing trip with Burke?) PPP mentioned a desire to sign free agent, former Oiler playoff hero, Fernando Pisani. Now, there's the fact that he's 33, has ulcerative colitis, his -1.9 GVT rating, and previous salary of $2.


Today's the big game in the world cup, and I know who my team is.  So... HUP HOLLAND HUP!! Oh yeah, and I have a few Leafs links for you after the jump. * Cap and Capability MLHS on what it really means for the Leafs to remove both

Roll Call

Due to the extreme nature of the Brett Lebda signing (apparently) I think we need to do a roll call this morning, to make sure everyone's still with us. I got a little worried that maybe someone had run to the Bloor Viaduct in response to the signing

A Tribute to Truculence

Yesterday the hockey world received some shocking news: Bob Probert had died at the young age of 45. Now, Probert was never a Leaf, but he sure resonates to Leaf fans. He played on two bitter rivals in the Norris Division - the Red Wings and the Blackhawks. From our

Back to the grind

Well that was a great four day weekend.  I did little to nothing.  I could really use more weekends like that, I had way too much sleep to catch up on.  Oh and we tried this new chinese restaurant down the street from us.  What a gong show.  It just

Saturday Afternoon FTB

* Well I know that Skinnyfish is away but I'm not sure what else is going on in everyone else's lives, so I thought I'd throw up an FTB so we can move discussion on free agency, our cap overage last year, and other things

Happy July 1!!!!1

Well I was gonna write something here but let's face it, it's Canada day, we got Kris Versteeg last night, and who knows who we'll sign today. Nobody cares what I have to say. Here's your links: * Van Ryn to sit out

Well that was a busy weekend

Apparently, I picked the wrong weekend to busy and out of touch with the internet. There would've been easily a few hundred more comments on everything from me if I'd been around for the draft on Friday night and Saturday during the day. I was extremely

Hidden Gems

So yesterday I pulled out an old USB key to bring to work.  Plugging it into my computer for the first time in at least a year, I was pleased to discover a number of old photos I thought I had lost.  A few of university friends that I haven&

The Raven

I don't know what I've done, but clearly, I've done something to upset the Ravens.  As in the bird, the raven, not the NFL team (who really cares about them?).  A few months ago (I'm thinking last fall maybe?) I went for

For British Eyes Only

So this weekend I went on an Arrested Development fest.  As I mentioned, I discovered that we have the Sundance Channel which shows two episodes a day.  So I set the PVR last week and come Friday I had 14 episodes to watch.  With the hubby suffering from a migraine

Happy housewife

When I was a teenager, the idea of being a housewife terrified me.  Cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, staying at home... I wanted nothing to do with any of it.  Fastforward ten years and, well, I love it.  Last night I got home, took the dog for a walk, picked up

Aye, Aye, Captain

Prior to January 31st, 2010, I had a much different opinion of Dion Phaneuf than I have now. I thought he was a cocky, arrogant, overpaid bastard. I was extremely glad to not see him named to the Olympic team, and wished I could stop hearing from Calgary fans (and

The Drought is Ours

First off, a big congratulations to the Chicago Hawks and their fans for the Cup win last night.  They've been playing some incredible hockey and that game last night is one of the most enjoyable hockey games I've seen in a while.  Seeing Toews lift the

The Sundance Channel

So this weekend I was flipping channels and I came across one that I don't usually have - the Sundance Channel.  Why is this relevant?  Because they show Arrested Development.  A lot.  So this weekend I enjoyed 4 different episodes (including one I'd never seen, the

Beam me up

Ahhhh Monday morning.  The day I return to the world of the internets.  I am on the computer so long from Monday - Thursday (and let's face it, Fridays I often laze around and end up in the CC for far too long) so often on weekends I


So my brother flew into Vancouver yesterday for work.  He's a Health and Safety Executive for a cartage company and also sits on the board of directors for some sort of Transportation Safety Association, which is having their quarterly meeting out in Victoria this weekend, so he managed

Chris Pronger is a Jerk

Just in case y'all didn't know, apparently Chris Pronger has stolen the game puck from the Chicago Blackhawks at the end of the last two games. This makes Hawks fans mad, and last night on twitter they started calling Pronger names. Now I feel for Hawks
