Telegram, Telephone, Tell-a-PensFan

Well, the Malkin trade talk disappeared a few days ago when Malkin himself
came out and said he was gonna take a Crosby discount to stay with the Pens.

But as the draft has gotten closer, the talks sprouted back up.

The most popular link on the internet today is [ Puck Daddy's ] story
on a potential Malkin trade to the Los Angeles Kings.
The initial report came from Canada.



It all revolves around the obvious urgency that everyone knows Ray Shero has
to get at least one or two picks in the first three rounds of the draft.

And Los Angeles has been the flavor of the week.
But people don't stop and think about what's going on.

If the Kings are gonna ship Cammalleri, a prospect defenseman, and a pick,
they will get an established goaltender in return.

You don't stop your rebuilding process before you even make the playoffs.

Did anyone see what the Pens did this season?
They sucked for a long time, got good, made the playoffs, and then traded away some promising youth for a top-flight player that would take their team to another level.

That's how it's done.
But never mind the logic, because the prevailing thought is that a trade with Los Angeles is sexy.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

ROSSIGATE

Every facet of the Pittsburgh media is saying Hossa's agent isn't telling the truth.
[ Buzz on the Turd ] even said Rossi personally told him that Hossa's agent is a liar.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

And now back to Malkin.
Everyone knows the trade talk is garbage.

People get excited about it 'cause it would give them something to complain about if it happens.

Malkin's not going anywhere.
If he is traded this offseason, we will photoshop ourselves.



UPDATE

From [TSN]:

"You guys make up more stuff than I can ever imagine," Ottawa general manager Bryan Murray told reporters on Thursday. "I heard a rumour last night that Pittsburgh was moving one of their star players. I talked to their manager today to see if I could be included in the discussions and they kind of laughed at me."

If something happens with Malkin, I will photoshop myself photoshopping you as you photoshop yourselves.

Who gives a shit if we have a pick in the first three rounds? We will be fine.

Bobby said...

seriously, fuck this draft. we have the right players now.

debrisslide said...

I'm not feeling a whole lot of crazy good vibes this year about the draft. And not just because the Penguins don't pick much.

BlacknGold66 said...

Malkin is being traded to make room for Melichar.

I heard that from a friend of a friend who knows a guy who's former milkman was banging the wife of one of the executives at the Cedar Lee movie theater that used to go to school with a guy that used to buss tables at a restaurant that Mario went to once.

It has to be true.

only thing good about the Cedar Lee movie theatre is Parnells is within spitting distance and you can cross the street and take your 11 year old cousin to Quinns

@bng - It's definitely true because milkmen in America = not a bygone era.

Sorry for the deleted comments--my typos sucked.

jefe penguino said...

i dont think its crucial to get a pick in the top three rounds this year. if we got one for trading rights of someone we wouldve lost anyway, thatd be cool.

photoshopping yourself sounds painful.

I'm off for volunteer work at the animal rescue league. At orientation, they told us that any cats that don't have names can be named by us. I already named one Maxim, just gotta make it official now...

Pensgirl said...

If Malkin gets traded, I'll move to Magnitogorsk.

Original Nathan said...

I know I've said this before, but the draft is always a crapshoot. Some years you get complete wastes like Patrik Stefan drafted #1 overall while the reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner goes at #210. It comes down to how good your scouting staff is to find that guy who lasts until deep in the draft and be a top-flight talent. Hell, the Pens got Ryan Malone (the best player of the post-Jagr, pre-Sid days) at #115 in that 1999 draft.

Just for kicks, here's how the 1999 entry draft went down. Outside of the Sedins, the entire first round was a bunch of never-weres, mediocre players, and Faberge Eggs.

KJ said...

if malkin is traded, i'll throw up and kick the dog, though hopefully not at once as that would be messy.

jefe penguino said...

@nathan -im checking out all the drafts on wiki right now. i happen to be on 1999 and that is quite the first round crowd.

Max Power said...

Draft? We don't need no stinking draft!
We're already set. Stacked. Money in the bank. Chips in the pot. Pucks in the net. The only things we need worry about are the price of gas and how many jumpingjacks we can do.

JKraus said...

It's funny. Everyone seems to freak-out at the trade deadline about what their team isn't doing, and the same holds true for the draft.

Despite the weak attempt to prop up Stamkos, there doesn't seem to be a Crosby, Ovechkin or Malkin in this bunch.

There are likely good players to be had. But the teams are going to have to dig and so many of the can't-miss-prospects will end up spending their hockey like in the ECHL.

I can only hope that the Penguins don't relinquish anyone from their roster simply to get a draft pick in the first three rounds; It would be a terrible mistake.

Original Nathan said...

1999 might end up going down as the worst draft ever. I mean, sometimes you can't predict that a player's going to be made of glass, but my God, Pavel "Have another donut" Brendl at #4 overall? Kris Beech at #7? Jani Rita at #13 (at least it wasn't the Pens who botched that pick -- they were too busy getting ready to draft Konstantin Koltsov at #18)?

The Rangers and Islanders had 5 of the first 10 picks in that draft. Of those five picks, only Tim Connolly (made of glass), Taylor Pyatt (career underachiever -- he's never scored 40 points in any season of his NHL career), and Branislav Mezei (who?) played in the NHL this year, and none of them with the team that drafted them.

too bad our 57th pick jeremy van hoof didnt pan out. i wouldve rocked that jersey.

KJ said...

Malone & Miller both went in the 99 draft. guess that year was good if your name is Ryan. of course there is also a Zetterberg. but its amazing to look back at these drafts now and realize how some people thought so and so year was going to produce so many great players and all they came up with were injury prone no ones. 99 will probably go down in the battle of crappiest with 96

jefe penguino said...

i mean, if van hoof made a solid hit, steggy would be saying, those arent boos from the crowd, those are hoooooooves!

Victor Raison said...

All this off-season stuff would make a good pilot for a TNT show, 'cause they know drama.

I'm waiting to hear the news that the Pens and the Kings are just going to make one giant trade. One team for the other.

Max Power said...

There shouldn't even be a hockey team in LA

debrisslide said...

Previews for the 5:00 news = they're going to freak out about the Malkin story.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Maybe at the awards ceremony they screwed up Lidstrom with Colorado's 4th round draft Sanny Lindstrom? No? He does play defense and is from Sweden ...

Original Nathan said...

I don't think it's a contest, 1999 vs. 1996. There's still a bunch of decent-to-good players around from the 1996 draft. The overall crop from 1996 seems to be more productive at the NHL level than the one from 1999. Marco Sturm and Danielle Briere went in the first round that year, and the #1 overall pick is still in the league.

Original Nathan said...

Max, I think Los Angeles is too big a market not to have a hockey team, but they don't need two teams.

Jack Kent Cooke had the best comment about the Los Angeles area: he was informed that there were 300,000 Canadians (at the time) living in the area. His response, "Now I know why they left Canada. They hate hockey."

KJ said...

carroll-i saw that story yesterday i keep wondering about the physics of how she's putting on underwear and a piece flies off and hits her in the eye. but i don't want to think too much about this story since the woman who's complaining is 52, ewww!!!

KJ said...

nathan you may be right about 96, but i have to throw it in because of how weak it looked from day 1. i mean, no one expected much of anything out of it and truthfully except a few gems, its delivered. 99 looks crappy cause people thought so highly of it and have been totally disappointed for the most part. but i guess in the end, they're both crappy for different reasons.

TheFandangler said...

We don't really need this draft... Even though this is a deep crop of guys. The Malkin talk surpasses the Malone talk for me, Malone is at least realistically not going to be here next year but Malkin?...c'mon!

Shero hops into the DeLorean and trades Malkin to the 1980 Soviet Team for the rights to the Berlin Wall and David Hasselhoff's jacket. As part of the deal Malkin must tell the Soviet coach to not pull Tretiak after the first period in the Medal Round game against the U.S.

If we have no picks in the first three rounds I am cool with that. Maybe we find the next Zetterberg.

I'm pretty sure that, even if the Pens were going to ditch Malkin, they'd light him on fire before sending him to Ottawa.

Still can't blame Murray for not wanting to get in on that possible action, though. I actually feel kinda bad for him...trusting what he read in the newspapers and then looking like an idiot.

okay, that's over. Murray is a douche.

Stoosh said...

Draftblog...

(Jesse can feel free to correct me on this...there isn't one person I trust more with dropping Draft Day/prospects knowledge than Jesse.)

Stamkos is going to be a good one, but I agree that he's no Crosby/Malkin/Ovechkin. He's probably a little closer on the Franchise Player Totem Pole to Spezza. The major difference is that Stamkos more than likely has balls and provides some degree of leadership and inspiration to his teammates.

Stamkos will do well in Tampa because with Vinny Lecavalier there, Stamkos doesn't have to be "THE MAN".

This, of course, begs the question...

How long will it be before we see the obligatory "Stamkos wants out of Tampa because he doesn't want to play rhythm guitar to Lacavalier's lead" article?

Better yet, are we closer to seeing an article like that written about Pat Kane and Jonathan Toews?

Or is crap like simply restricted to Sid and Geno because they're bigger right now?

Jesse said...

Stoosh,

I think you'll see that Stamkos' attitude is that of a kid who wouldn't let that type of thing happen. And even if it did, you might see Vinny gone before Steven.

Stamkos might not be in the mold of a Crosby or Ovechkin (your Spezza comparison is apt, but add a bit more upside), but he is certainly a dynamic talent that has a solid head on his shoulders.

Cbloggers panic not, we'll be fine. This is the deepest draft in the last few years, and there are a lot of hidden gems in the late rounds, a lot of young kids that didn't catch hype that carries kids like Zach Bogosian from 76 ranking to 4 in a year.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I'm never worried about the Draft more like excited ... TSN had Jared Staal as 50th top prospect, but I'm wondering if a team will take him higher (even if he wasn't great at the Combine) because he's a Staal and he has been pretty good otherwise. I mean, he's almost as big as Jordan and he's my age, he's gonna be a big winger with a lot of power and he goes to the net.

@Flyer Hater: Ha, you finally broke them down that they came here to try and job us ... *laughs*

Jesse said...

FH,

I certainly do. Haha. Thanks for reading the stuff, man.

snickerdoodles said...

@debrisslide,
the glossy photo does not have to sign a contract, but it does have to admit it's a douche every 4 hours. As for your second question, I bet ol' Seanny has a full lenght mirror for his umm..stick handling.

Jesse said...

IHK,

I wouldn't spend a pick on Staal in the first two rounds. If his last name was Smith, he'd be listed around #115. He's in poor physical condition and he simply can't put it together consistently

He's got more offensive flair than the rest of them but he can't put it together consistently in all phases let alone one phase.

Stoosh said...

@ Jesse -

I think you'll see that Stamkos' attitude is that of a kid who wouldn't let that type of thing happen. And even if it did, you might see Vinny gone before Steven.

Oh, I know. I was just joking around and expressing a little bit of frustration at these media types who continue to insist that Sid and Malkin can't coexist. I don't the same things being written about other teams in similar situations as the Pens.

Stamkos might not be in the mold of a Crosby or Ovechkin (your Spezza comparison is apt, but add a bit more upside), but he is certainly a dynamic talent that has a solid head on his shoulders.

Exactly. And I think Stamkos's upside comes from some of those intangibles that I don't think Spezza ever had.

Let me put it this way...there's a reason Spezza played for four different teams in the OHL and only played 20 playoff games his entire OHL career, despite easily being the most gifted natural talent in the league at that time.

Spezza = excellent complimentary NHL player...unfortunately miscast as a franchise-caliber player. Just my opinion. I think Stamkos will be better.

Cbloggers panic not, we'll be fine. This is the deepest draft in the last few years, and there are a lot of hidden gems in the late rounds, a lot of young kids that didn't catch hype that carries kids like Zach Bogosian from 76 ranking to 4 in a year.

Thanks for doing the research on all this stuff...good Pens draft article.

I need to get in touch with the one guy about going forward with the Otter Tracking project.

Flyer Hater said...

TPB+FF>Anything the internet has to offer.

Jesse, I watched all the vids you sent me on the kid. I loved what I saw. Kids like Zach Harnden who you draft in the 4th round (if they turn out) enables you to keep guys like Malkin, Hossa, and Fleury around.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@jesse: Yeah, I heard a lot of 3rd round talks for him or later in the draft ... and most of the time scouts and the team don't buy into the hype. I'm just looking out for him because of Jordan and I have to admit Eric is someone I like outside of the Pens. I also heard he's lazy and has a bad work ethic, but I'm not sure that's true.

In case any one ever wanted to know, Malone was drafted #115 ... (I may have known that by memorization ... *looks away and does not make eye contact*)

"yea its getting out of hand. I'm going to make the site private again so all this b.s. will stop."

Mission=Accomplished

debrisslide said...

The draft is always deceptive. It's impossible to tell how a guy will play within a few years, or even a few weeks. So drafting players is essentially a giant festival of educated guessing. It's weird that it's such a big deal sometimes--and I know it can be and there are some years when the guys picked first are instant superstars. But otherwise, it can get kind of ridiculous--and yet if we didn't talk about the draft and stats, we'd have to admit that professional sports in general are kind of ridiculous. I, however, would never say that. Owing to the hockey gods and all.

btw, I wouldn't let Sean Avery stickhandle around a mirror. Something about that just seems dangerous.

That's right, bitch! And America owns the rights to the internet, too! And ice hockey!

...Oh wait. :(

doc18holiday said...

Oh darn where's all your comments, did you guys have to go to bed before the street lights come on. That's a damn shame. I was really enjoying your insight to Penguins hockey on here.

Flyer Hater said...

I can't wait until DocHomo comments tomorrow that he's suing TPB for making a photoshop of him.

Jesse said...

Okay, how's this.

My Aunt Nancy just told me that Malkin to Vancouver is a definite. In turn, we're getting the rights to Naslund and Cloutier, as well as pack of smokes for Stoosh.

Now, when I'm wrong, don't try to hold me accountable.

It was just a rumor. What can it hurt?

Stoosh said...

It's ok you guys can go through puberty or border patrol.

Ahhhhh, yes...when all else fails, break out the Mexican/ethnic jokes. Nothing screams class and demands respect like ethnic jokes.

That, my friends, is the mark of a true intellectual luminary.

doc18holiday said...

wow a photoshop of me, to honor me, your so thoughtful. Thanks Flyer lover. that's the greatest thing ever.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@doc18holiday: Your last comments make you sound like one of the biggest idiots that I have ever encountered. You are obviously a pathetic person who finds nothing better to do than look at rumors that are false and insult people's families over the internet. Nice brass ones, oh wait, I highly doubt you have any. You read that garbage over at that site and believe it while the within the next hour or so, it is disproven by another article that is posted. Yet you cling onto the shit he spews? The people over here definitely talk about rumors, but we know that over half of them are bull shit, like the comments you are posting. If you would kindly leave, so I don't have to scroll over your pathetic excuse of an argument, I would be quite happy. Good day.

doc18holiday said...

But where would we be without ethnical jokes, I mean what flyer hater was doing on the other board was just unethical as well so what makes you think I'm going to even come close to being ethical on here.

coffeytalk said...

Rumor has it I'm being traded to a better c-blog conversation.

doc holiday? really? yeesh.

Flyer Hater said...

That will show us DocHomo. Where is the internet by-law that says I have to be ehtical on your waste of internet bandwith? Are you going to take me to the Internet Disciplinary Board?

doc18holiday said...

Haha yes, I've reached idiot status. No I can't leave that would be "unethical" of me to do so. Hey I wouldn't have posted on here but flyer hater insisted on doing what he did over at the other site, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to do the same thing over here and you haven't even heard some of the "shit I can spew out."
I want you to scroll over my pathetic comments. Enjoy reading!

Flyer Hater said...

Jesse, Dan Cloutier?

doc18holiday said...

No I wouldn't do that I'll just annoy the hell out of everyone here. That's much more fun. I don't have to be ethical either.

P.O. said...

reading some of these comments makes me want to go read BlueShirtBulletin... is this pens fans jobbing pens fans?? its like northern ireland vs. ireland, they may be different religeons but theyre still both irish... we might have different opinions but we are still pens fans... stop the pens fan on pens fan jobbing

doc18holiday said...

coffeytalk? really? yeesh! who says yeesh. Some stupid rug muncher. Come on guys some the shit shit you are "spewing" out is just ridiculous. You guys can do better.

coffeytalk said...

I love how the trolls come in here expecting the world to end with their "outlandish" statements.

oooh shock! oooh awe!

The Pens Blog & C-Blog is shakin' in our skates. Good gracious me-oh-my!

pathetic.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@oc18holiday: Flyer Hater is his own person, so we are liable for everything that Flyer Hater likes to job people about ... well, I guess, we are going to apologize to half the people in the world ... Let's see who should we start with? Melichar, Avery, Woods, the ottawa Senators, really I could go on ...

This conversation has no point ... let him do his little insults ... who's up for a new conversation? Trade Rumors? *laughs* JK ... umm ... how about the Draft?

doc18holiday said...

kasparitis has no balls. But I'm willing to bet if I were face to face with you, I'd rip you apart.

Flyer Hater said...

DocHomo, you haven't been the first troll here and you won't be the last. Unlike the pussy blog that you support, this blog won't pack up its jobbing material and go home.

Stoosh said...

Actually, you'd be wrong again, Doc.

Gambling and drinking didn't become Doc Holliday's vices until AFTER he had been diagnosed with tuberculosis - more or less a death sentence in those days. For all intents and purposes, he left his practice as a licensed dentist and gave himself to his vices because he was going to die an early death anyway.

John "Doc" Holliday achieved a Doctorate at the Philadelphia College of Dental Surgery and ran his own dental office with a partner in Atlanta, Georgia. He was also well versed in classic literature and the Latin languages.

That's pretty much why I pointed out the irony of someone with your command of a language referencing the name of an educated person like Holliday.

Hell, you didn't even spell his last name correctly.

doc18holiday said...

No I don't want the world to end, I just want to post ridiculous stuff on here. It's fun.

Flyer Hater said...

IHK, it's guilt by association.

WOOO

Jesse said...

So yeah. Zach Harnden. Good kid. Will be available around #120. Ol' Thunder Bay, Ontario. Can't go wrong.

coffeytalk said...

I heard we're trading Lemieux for Tiger Woods.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

I don't have any balls, you're right, I'm a woman, sorry, I ruined you're little scare there!

Coffeytalk displays the awesomeness of Paul Coffey and the SNL skit ... that's win/win ...

@Flyer Hater: Thanks so much ...

coffeytalk said...

hell, ihk. I don't even care for that snl skit that much. i just like puntastic handlesand well, paul coffey.

it's a reason why i heart yours so much!

P.O. said...

coffeytalk

is that you in the BOB ERREY jersey? that jersey is sick!!

doc18holiday said...

No shit I didn't spell his name correctly. You'd think I cared how to spell his name.

Flyer hater I by no means want you guys to pack it up, that would ruin all my fun. I want this site to keep going so that I can continue to annoy you people. Especially you and Dousche. (great word don't you think, I figured it was in you vocabulary.)

coffeytalk said...

Everytime I hear Thunder Bay my mind wanders to something out of the Justice League.

coffeytalk said...

p.o.-

no. that is my brother's roomate in the jersey. i am very mad at myself for not thinking of the idea first.

Stoosh said...

I'm just glad I got to make a few indirect references to Tombstone.

Randomawesomeness...

Check out the author.

coffeytalk said...

stoosh-

i just exploded.


aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

RaCHeLeYoS said...

Doc18- Take it easy, Champ. Why don't you sit this next one out, stop talking for a while.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@jesse: I have heard a lot of good things about him from you ... what's the deal with Nikita Filatov? I was thinking he'd be in the Top 3, but I have heard that he's basically Top 10 material, thoughts?

@coffeytalk: Thanks ... I've had this illness for a while ... hard to get rid of ... I heard it might be a problem in Russia ...

@Stoosh: That's Gold!! Solid find ...

doc18holiday said...

stoosh, I believe the word you are looking for is your an "idiot." I think that's the popular word on here tonight.

Jesse said...

IHK,

The lack of a transfer deal is killing the Russians like Kirill Petrov and Filatov. Filatov is good, but I have him at #11. Russians are too much of an engima for me. Garth Snow loves him, however, and I'd bet good $$ he ends up there, opening the door for another team to make a steal on Bogosian or Schenn after that.

karri said...

doc - you are = you're not your

@ Coffeytalk -

I pretty much fell in love with Tombstone when I was in college...it's got to be in my list of Top 10 Favorite Movies EVAHHHHH (Stephen A. Smith, for effect). And Val Kilmer's portrayal of Doc Holliday makes the movie - one of the top movie badasses ever. So I became a bit of a fan of Doc Holliday the real person after seeing that movie.

HowCBlogAffectsYourLifeBlog...

I noticed the mention of the Roberts book when I glanced at Doc Holliday's Wikipedia page. The first thing I thought was that some random Pens/Pensblog fan jobbed Doc Holliday's Wikipedia page with a Gary Roberts reference. Figure it would be fitting for one badass write a book about another badass.

Fuck this draft is right Bobby.

coffeytalk said...

I enjoy Val Kilmer. He loses 100 points with me though for his try at Batman. Don't eff with The Bat.

Stoosh said...

Until I see that it becomes a respectable site.

To paraphrase Herman Boone (Denzel Washington) from Remember the Titans,

"Well, I'm glad we have the approval of a five-year old."

Everybody who's not from this blog step back. All the haters need to know something about thepensbloggers.

We are black belts in e-fighting. Remember that.

karri said...

@ stoosh - you're, impressing me tonight with your quotes

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@jesse: Garth Snow scares me ... we had a discussion last night were it seems I probably could be a better GM, but my methods involved a bit of outside methods ... *laughs*

I like Bogosian ... he seems like a solid defenseman. He plays with his entire body and is physically aggressive, those are my types of players.

It's really cool that there are so many defensmen looking like the top prospects. I don't know, I have always been a defense kinda girl (exception Malone, but he is great defensively) ...

Val Kilmer in Top Gun = One of the Most Awesome People Ever! (ok, so he wasn't the greatest guy, but he was awesome ...)

Stoosh said...

I enjoy Val Kilmer. He loses 100 points with me though for his try at Batman. Don't eff with The Bat.

Kilmer also did a great Jim Morrison impression as well, but yeah, the Batman thing was a bad idea.

Actually, the last few movies of that series were bad ideas, save maybe Jim Carrey as The Riddler (Tommy Lee Jones was OK as Two-Face, but once it got to Arnold, Uma Thurman, Chris O'Donnell and Alicia Silverstone...like you said, vomitblog. Chris O'Donnell whined more than Bryan Murray and Tom Renney combined).

Thank God for the new Christian Bale adaptations of that series. I love that they're exploring the darker sides of these characters and making the villains truly frightening villains.

I can't wait to see The Dark Knight.

Stilly said...

@Stoosh

Thank you for correcting Dick18Holiday. I was going to post a rant about how he died from tuberculosis, but you've done that. BTW Tombstone is in my top 10 as well. I have Wyatt Earp too, but I appreciate Klimer's Doc portrayal.

I'm not entirely sure where this d-bag came from, but I'm already tired of him. He reminds me of PaulinMiamiMen. Before you know it, this asshat will be spewing +/- stats.

Jasper said...

damn, I miss the pens and hockey

I'm actually getting quite interested in watching the lightning play again
rumors have it lecavalier is going to sign a lifelong contract with 'em and they'll most likely select stamkos first overall, so that's gonna get quite interesting (marty is pretty nice tho)
just curious who will pick who in the draft

Dr. Turkleton said...

Val Kilmer with yummy Lis Shue = The Saint.

man, cblog sure has taken a southern dive in the past couple hours...

where's r*g*b* when you need her?

Pens pick @ 120???

Michal Jordan

Just Do It.

I'd rather have Garth Algar over Garth Snow,

Yea, that's right. Let that one roll around your mind for a minute.

Dr. Turkleton said...

Garth Snow in his Box Lacrosse gear = unbeatable.

Dr. Turkleton said...

sooska + HCDT = share 1 brain.

Jesse said...

This is the year of the defenseman. Schenn, Bogosian, Pietrangelo, Robak, Doughty, etc.

A great class, for sure.

Bogosian is good, but he's behind Schenn for me. Schenn possess all the tools. I interviewed him this year and he is just a down to earth family kid. Bogosian's decision making is a step behind Schenns.

Shameless plug, our mock draft comes out tonight. Keep an eye out for it. We meant to go to 80, but because of a family emergency we only got to 30.

@ Karri -

Thanks! I'm one of those people who could probably go an entire day referencing or at least paraphrasing nothing but random movie or television quotes. My friends and I do stuff like that all time. I suppose we'd be either incredibly entertaining or incredibly annoying.

coffeytalk said...

Oh Stoosh. Don't get me started on Chris O'Donnell as Robin.

ROBIN IS A CHILD. Chris O'Donnel was like 45 when he filmed Batman Forever.

I think Jim Carey could play The Riddler role better now than then. It was too Ace Venturaish for me. Tommy Lee Jones = Epic Fail as Two-Face. All he did was try to be Jack Nicholson. Joker and Two-Face, not the same at all. Too over the top.

I don't speak of Batman & Robin. That film NEVER happened.

Stilly said...

Joke's not even clever. He's just annoying.

KJ said...

lol, that cloutier vs beach ball shot is awesome.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@Stoosh: Bale is becoming a Gary Roberts of acting ... I should move Paul Newman to Lemieux and make him Gary Roberts ... anywho, Bale in any movie is worth watching ...

@Dr. Turk: Either his hometown and birthplace are the same or he wasn't born but molded ... DO IT!

@jesse: I usually check your site out, so I'll do that ... the Draft and Germany winning made me happy today!

@ HCDT- we always have.

The little ones today are so disappointing. The creativity born of madness just isn't there. It's like the kindergarten kid down the street compared to Van Gogh or some lazy ass blog troll compared to Tolstoy or Vonnegut.

Stoosh said...

@ Dr. Turk -

The Saint = one of Nancy Stoosh's absolute favorites. Buro Houtenfaust = money

Stilly said...

@IHK

Agreed. I put Bale right up there with Mark Whalberg. I will see anything that either of them are in.

Colin said...

Garth Algar = Beast.

Guys, I think Cloutier is actually with the Kings. He is the snag in the Malkin deal. LA does not want to part with him.

@ ihk -

Did you see the game today?

Stilly said...

Wahlberg

Me = Joke
