Maple Leafs Suck.

BEHIND THE NUMBERS

Since Nils Ekman was lost to injury, the Penguins are 13 - 2 - 2.

Nils Ekman's +/-

Worst +/- on the Penguins roster.

Marc-Andre Fleury's play of late is sparking comparisons to another goaltending legend.

Finally, we mentioned our friend DKroll this week.
And here he is giving SPORTSNET.CA a behind-the-scenes look at the Mellon Arena visitor's locker room.

cool, first post!

I was under the impression that Mark Eaton simply swung his giant captain caveman's club like dong at the liberty bell, shatting it into more pieces than crosby will have assists (well over 4 million.)... guess I was wrong.

But seriously though, I played a game of NHL 2007 against the flyers tonight, I kid you not that Eric Cairns won 3 fights in the first period, Crosby had 12 points, and Mark Eaton injured 3 seperate players. I'm hoping that comes true next time we play them.

Ok, first of all, I laugh everytime I come to this website - love the sarcasm. It was a new find, but I'm a little confused about something. Is there some kind of inside joke about Mark Eaton? Why so much emphasis on him? I love the Pittsburgh Penguins, but I was just curious. :-)

Tiffany,

Welcome to the Blog.

haha yea we just love Mark Eaton for some reason, so the last week we have been going nuts about him.

Tiffany said...

LOL....thanks for clearing that up and for welcoming me. :-D Looking forward to future posts.

I can believe that is the away players locker room! That is on par with what I get dressed at warendale's bladerunners. Add some mouthwash and hair gel and its about the same. That is a joke.

Scott said...

I have dressed in the visitors locker rooms before...i played a bball game there cause the coach of my team works down at the arena and i was kinda pissed we didnt get the home locker rooms cause we were the home team and our coach got the arena for everyone...but its not as bad as the video says it was

Mark Eaton isn't hung like a horse, horses are hung like Mark Eaton.

Mark Eaton counted to infinity - twice.

Antonette said...

The liberty bell destroyed itself rather than face Mark Eaton. He would have blocked its shot into Jesery anyway. (That made no sense. I don't care. It's one in the morning.)

seth said...

random question: what happened to showing the goalie masks for the western conference?

Tee said...

wow I wrote shatting in that first post... alcohol is bad boys and girls... I meant shattering

Contrary to popular belief, Donald Brashear is not black. In 1992 he made the mistake of trying to check a then 15 year old Mark Eaton. He has been covered in a massive body bruise ever since.

Tippy said...

So Nils is the antichrist, Flower's Jesus, Eats is the Hulk, and um. Oh yeah, the Leafs suck.

Adam said...

wow, it really sucks when your body automatically wakes you up on saturday in tune to the work week.

These Chuck Norris Facts only work with the right kind of people.
Norris.
Lemieux.
Eaton.

If you haven't check out the Lemieux Facts, they're in the left-hand link menu.

We're starting to get busy, but you can put it on the board: Western masks Sunday - Tuesday.

When Eaton was denied an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's because it was 10:35, he took a slapshot at the store so hard it became a Wendy's

hahahahahahha yesss

Yesterday wearing my pens visor around London, Tony Blair himself pulled me aside to thank Mark Eaton for stopping the letter bombings. He did so simply by smiling during an interview. Seeing it on the news, the bomber went and turned himself in, he promptly apologized to Eaton for wasting his time.



so what's up with the Arena deals? I'm outta the loop again :(

Staff said...

hahahahahaahahaahha

Maverick said...

Someone needs to start a Mark Eaton > Jesus/Chuck Norris facebook group asap.

Jesus served a cross-checking five-minute major for our sins.

Elly said...

Chuck Norris/Eaton jokes never get old.

Geeves said...

the arena is still nada, there is no loop to be out of.

they have three overtime losses since ekman, adam. get yer facts right

Staff said...

eaton called us.

said he didnt want the boston game to count in the post.

Staff said...

oh, i see what the problem is.

you're counting the game that he got hurt.

since he played in that game, we didn't count it.

I'm gonna beat your ass, your favorite cousin at psu ;)

Staff said...

you little fag...come home next weekend for the party at your dads that was postponed....beotchhh




go pens

Tee said...

games like this game are the reason I think we need a tough guy. If Cairns was in he would have skated over and killed Gill, and you see now how a simple scrap can swing the momentum.

Tyson on skates

i nominate petrovicky for the "mark eaton of the day" award!

Will said...

hahaha, great line

Will said...

I am calling this right now.....Jordan Staal ROOKIE OF THE YEAR!!!!

thomes08 said...

I think it's about time we start making love to staal now.

How was the game tonight guys? I could only watch it update on sportsline.com, seemed pretty hectic. GLad wen ended up with the 2 though.



GO PENS!

tiffany said...

OMG!! What an unbelievable game!!! I kept rootin' for Staal to get the hat trick......and he got not only his first career hat trick, but the win in OT. He was "Staaling" right before he scored his 3rd goal.....lol. :-D

Tonight, in other news, Mark Eaton killed some penalties, made some hard hits, drew a critical penalty in OT, and delivered an audience member's baby. (She was a former Maple Leaf's fan; now she's not only a Penguins' fan, but she's a huge Mark Eaton fan.) This makes Eaton's 3rd audience delivery during an away game.

Scott said...

i fucking love this team

Anonymous said...

Mark Eaton was born in a log cabin that he built with his bare hands.

tiffany said...

I know Scott, so do I. And even though Petrovicky beat the crap out of Newberry, he was still really classy and was calling for the medical team to come and help. When they finally got him on the stretcher and everyone was bangin' their sticks, Petro was bangin' his stick in the penalty box right along with them. Class act. (No, I'm not being sarcastic; I'm serious, just so you know.)

BTW anonymous, love the comment about Eaton. I thought he was born in a hospital, though, and built THAT with his bare hands. Guess I heard wrong.

Unfortunately, my comment was slightly inaccurate before. He didn't deliver 3 babies during 3 away games..............he delivered 5. Two out of the three he delivered were twins.

tiffany said...

....ooops....I spelled the guys name wrong. :-S
It's Newbury.

And I second both of these comments:

"I nominate Petrovicky for the "Mark Eaton of the day" award!"

"Jordan Staal ROOKIE OF THE YEAR!!!!"

And I LOVE this comment:

"I think it's about time we start making love to Staal now."

tiffany said...

Mark Eaton comments I love:

"Mark Eaton isn't hung like a horse, horses are hung like Mark Eaton."

"Mark Eaton doesn't sleep...he waits."

"Mark Eaton counted to infinity - twice."

"The liberty bell destroyed itself rather than face Mark Eaton."

"When Eaton was denied an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's because it was 10:35, he took a slapshot at the store so hard it became a Wendy's."

"Yesterday wearing my pens visor around London, Tony Blair himself pulled me aside to thank Mark Eaton for stopping the letter bombings. He did so simply by smiling during an interview. Seeing it on the news, the bomber went and turned himself in, he promptly apologized to Eaton for wasting his time."

"Eaton called us. Said he didn't want the Boston game to count in the post."
