New, comments

Leafs play a rookie game that no one saw, beards are back in style, and more like Back to BACKSTABBING!

Yesterday was probably one of the busier days in the hockey world since the dead period of the off-season. The Leafs played their third and final rookie tournament game in Laval, this one of course not being televised but we know they won 4-1.

Zach Bouthillier (I think) was the goalie, and seems to have acquitted himself well in a second straight game. We might have something in him. But there is an elephant in the room that has to be addressed before we go any further.

My friends I stand before you to tell a truth most dire. There lurks three traitors in our midst, who hath invoked our Katya’s ire. They don’t deserve no mercy, we ought to snark them with a pun. But I am not an evil man so first let’s have a little fun.

We’ll tie those scoundrels with a rope and make them super bored, by dragging them to the Senators ship... a terrifying, deadly trip. Keelhaul those filthy bloglubbers send them down to the minors below. Make those bastards sit and watch this Ottawa Senators video.

I will not say what they have done, their sins are far too grave to tell. It’s not my place to judge a man but for podcasting with another blog they surely now will burn in hell. The Sharks will dine upon their flesh and Gary Bettman will have their soul, now take their blogs and podcast gold, they won’t need them where they’re gonna go.

We’ll tie those scoundrels with a rope and make them super bored, then drag them to the Senators ship... a terrifying, deadly trip. Keelhaul those filthy bloglubbers send them down to the minors below. Make those bastards sit and watch this Ottawa Senators video.

Now go sit in a corner you three and think about loyalty and what you’ve done.

With the pre-season almost here, we see two things: first, a lot of the Leaf players are appearing in town with an exciting announcement!

The second thing about the pre-season being close is a lot more PTOs are being announced these days...

But of course the big news of the day happened at 1 am yesterday:

The gongshow that was the Max Pacioretty saga is finally over, which sees the Habs once again trading away one of their best players — and captain! — for perhaps a decent return considering the circumstance (except the circumstance was their own damn fault in the first place). More details:

And Pacioretty promptly signed an extension:

Have a great Tuesday everyone!
