Can we trade Recchi to the Devils for that beer drinking fan and a vendor to be named later?

You gotta love the kid on the left side of the picture cheering everything on. Takes you back to the old fights in high school where everyone would just crowd around, watch, and cheer.

maybe i don't know the backstory of this photo - but really, Flyers fans are the worst. They match their goon players.

Thought I would post this from Spector's Hockey:

Pierre Maguire was on the TEAM1040 this morning (Wednesday)in Vancouver and he was talking about the Recchi situation. Him and Recchi were texting each other last night before the Canucks/Ducks game and Maguire says that Recchi will likely be traded by Friday. Pittsburgh apparently wants to hand over the reigns of the team to the younger players and they feel that with the presence of such veterans as Recchi, Roberts and Sydor, its hard for those younger players to be that voice in the dressing room. I don't know what that means for Roberts or Sydor, but so far only Recchi has been told to call up other clubs and work out a trade for himself.

It's a rumor website but I don't really doubt it. I say bring on the 4th or 5th round draft pick.

You're definitely right, Brett, but that guy deserves it just for wearing Devils gear.

That is true...but it is a Devils fan. :) Maybe Charlie can tell us if it is okay for 17 homo fans to beat the crap out of another homo fan?

Wow, Faceoff Factor is reporting that Recchi is supposed to trade himself by Friday:

One of the Philly sports writer once wrote,

"remember now kids this is philly, which is Iroquois for shreds your sports team souls"

the fans are the worst.

Recchi should at least wait until next Monday to trade himself..... Monday is Recchi bobblehead night.... ha ha ha

Eric said...

sounds like something Ted Nolan would say...

wilsmith said...

I remember once I went to a penguins game and got Kovalev bobblehead, and Kovalev had already been traded. It was AWESOME.

Adrienne said...

lets trade recchi for michel oullete.
LOL! But he's playing so well in Tampa :(

We're going to end up trading him for some random player (or two) and possibly a second or third round draft pick.

Loser Chris said...

How about Recchi and Sydor for Markus Naslund?

This may be old news, I don't know, but if you haven't seen it yet, watch this:

It's a Sports Center mic'd up top 10 list. #1 is Whitney and Orpik. Whitney says during warm-ups "I know I'm gonna hit Mario and then I'm gonna get sent down."

Pretty funny.

(Sorry, I don't know how to do the link thing and am too lazy to figure it out right now.)

I remember once upon a time while I was still in college (or even maybe still in high school -- it's been a while), but I was listening to the radio broadcast of a Sharks game, and the announcers started talking about an incident at MSG in a game against the Flyers where there was some poor schmuck in a Flyers jersey sitting down in the lower levels, when the chant starts from the cheap seats "Burn that shirt." And eventually someone set the guy's Flyers jersey on fire with the guy still inside it. So I suppose my point is that Flyers fans may be classless goons, but at least they don't set people on fire. To my knowledge anyway.

At this point, I think I'd take Alek Stojanov for Recchi.

I remember hearing a story that had to be circa 2001 or 2002 about Billy Tibbetts getting pissed off when the vets made him sit in the back of the team bus following a game...So the hothead decided to throw a half-eaten hamburger at them. The throw was off target and just happened to strike a certain team owner/player as he started walking onto the bus.

Tibbetts, supposedly, was sent back to Wilkes-Barre the next day.

Now I heard this second hand from someone else who probably heard it second hand, so who knows if it's an urban legend or not. But I totally believe it could have happened.

PittHockey said...

hooks,

I've heard that tibbets story a lot, but I thought he got traded after that not sent down.

It's hilarious either way.

Funny stuff either way.

I had never heard that Tibbetts story before, but it is hilarious.

Something tells me, though, that even if Mario were still playing today, Whitney wouldn't have to worry anymore.

Rumor does have it he IS in the best shape of his life.... Just saying...

Anon at 6:36 -- So that's what Recchi looked like when he was still alive...

snoopyjode said...

wow, emdubs. good point. how ironic would THAT be if he got traded on his own bobblehead night?!

ugh! between the ibm training i'm suffering through for work and the lack of pens games, this really might be the longest week of my life. :( THANK GOD both the training and the pens' hiatus end tomorrow.

Loser Chris said...

What if he gets traded to Phoenix and then he can still be here for Recchi bobblehead night? Then everybody wins! Well, except for Coyote fans, but they'll both get over it.

stokes said...

about that picture: i hate the flyers and their fans and pretty much anything philly just becuase of the flyers. thats probably why ranger fans burned a philly shirt: because philly sucks.

Rex will be gone, obviously, and its a shame. i really wish he would retire as a penguin instead of trying to find another team to destroy.

Since there has been some Flyers talk today... Found this, Semi-funny.

Eklund says Recchi for Jaroslav Halak and Sydor for Dan Fritsche.

No way in hell either of those happen. Why would we trade for a backup goaltender/fourth line center? Get serious.

Draft picks for Recchi, fine... but come on, the two positions we don't need right now are goaltending and center.

hehehehehehhehehehhehe, both of them.
