Guess who’s back?

Back again?

Kass is back.

Tell a friend.” Or at least notify the NHL Substance Abuse Protocol Officials. No truth to the rumors he asked for Grant Fuhr to be his life coach in Edmonton.

Also back was the WINTER CLASSIC

Cops were busy confiscating weapons at the game

Have you had a Bahw-ston Bratwurst? You need a frickin' cleaver to cut 'em.

Rumors swirl that Brandon Prust was planning to spear Marchand but couldn’t decided which tool to use.

They should have confiscated this one.

A WJC TO FORGET

Not the best Canadian effort. The team had no identity. You can blame the player selection or the coaches, but I blame the Canadian losers in the stands who wore their NHL teams shirt to the games. These two even got air-time in Sweden. Seriously? Jets & Canucks jerseys to the Canada-Sweden game? Puh-leeez!

The Swedish fans get it right. The other two? Obviously went to the game friendless. I mean, what friend would allow you to go out like that????

Oh…nevermind.

Pens

Pens vs. ‘yotes, yet what do you see? Three Canucks jerseys, one Sabres, 15 Saskatchewan Roughriders.

There are always a few interesting fans who sit at the glass and get some TSN time. Observe:

POTW

First, a tribute. Lost some legends recently. Dickie Moore played in the NHL 1951-1968 (mostly with the Habs) winning 6 Cups and 2 Art Ross trophies (96 points in 70 games ’58-’59.) Would have been a solid OFHLer.

His #12 was retired. Also retired for Yvan Cournoyer.

Also passed away, Meadowlark Lemon of Harlem Globetrotters fame. If you ever saw them it was a great show and Meadowlark was the “Clown Prince.”.

They plan to cremate him, and throw his ashes over fans from a bucket they believe is full of water.

The POTW honours for week 13 are shared by two California tenders, Quick & Gibson each registered 10 points for the week.

Gibson stopped 54/55 shots this week; Quick stopped 124/125.

Gibson 3-0-0, 2 SO, stopped 54/55 shots this week; Quick 4-0-0, 1 SO, stopped 124/125.

SO WHAT HAPPENED THIS WEEK?

  • Big week went to Cordy with 47; went 3-0 and moved 6 points up on Fulty (F has a game in hand)
  • Derko goes 3-0, moves within 2 of Fulty
  • Orv has stinky week with 17
  • Stifler has solid week with 28 and registers his 1st ever multiple win week with a 2-1 record
  • Weird stuff: Haukster went 2-0; EZ beat H by one point but went 0-3
  • Pick-up is a lottery again – it’s a 4 so it goes to JBR
  • HOT: Derko 10-1-1
  • NOT: EZ 0-8-1
