More Shenanigans While I Should be Reading and Writing Papers

by Anne

Now the Lightning are interested in Mats' services. There is like no way the 'Bolts are under the cap. There have to be at least like 27 forwards and 12 defenseman, and probably like 5 or 6 goalies with NHL contracts by now.

This could spell disaster. It seems that his return hinges on Halpie being unable to come back from the knee injury he sustained during the World Championships. Ok, so that's well and good, but I can't imagine the problems it would create if Halpie becomes healthy btu can't come back because too much of the cap is eaten up by the Swede and there's no room for his salary. This could create issues. Are they implying that Montreal is a new team that's interested? Because they only named Tampa Bay as a new team. Montreal's been interested for a while. Oh please God, don't let the Sabres get mixed up in these shenanigans in ANYWAY. Do not agree to deal with a team that has to get rid of players to make room for Mats. I don't want the Buffalo Sabres to help Mats Sundin in ANY WAY, DARCY.

I can't imagine Mats Sundin would go to Tampa Bay. If Mats comes back I see him heading to the Rangers or the Habs. Not Toronto and most certainly not Tampa Bay. He wants a legitimate contender, and the 'Bolts are too much of a wild card at this point. They could completely dominate or completely fall apart. There's a lot of talent, but talent is no substitute for chemistry and a strong system (thank you, Jason Pominville) and with Barry Melrose just returning to the bench for the first time in the "new" NHL, this could be a huge disaster. He's been analyzing the new NHL, but talking and doing are two completely different things.

Wait, didn't I say I wasn't going to talk about Mats Sundin anymore? SHOOT.

Let's talk about something a little more pleasant, like this hilariously awkward-not-remotely-hot-shirtless picture of Ryan Malone:




Is this posed?
Is this a look someone was going for?
Does he know he's making that face?
Personally I love the "Cram the white man fro into a baseball cap and ignore the way it muffin tops out the sides" look.

I've been increasingly distracted by dreamy pictures of Trent Edwards, leading me to wonder...

Is Trent Edwards the athlete in Buffalo whose bones I would jump on sight?

For the last, let's say... 2 years-ish, its alternated between Drew Stafford and (mostly) Paul Gaustad.

Let's compare:

Sabres' Advantage: Goose

Now, let's compare Trent and Paul:



v.



Ok, maybe that picture of Paul Gaustad wasn't the best choice, let's try that again:




He he he

I'm still torn, but whatever Goose was drinking and/or taking when that picture was taken, I would like some for those gloomy post-loss days.

I guess the only thing left to do is stalk both of them for the duration of the Bills' season and see how things pan out for our "relationships".

Can Trent Edwards be my #5 favorite Sabre? And can Jason Pominville also be my favorite Buffalo Bill? Let's throw things at the wall of Buffalo Sports teams and see what sticks.

FYI, please search for "Paul Gaustad" "camp good days" (with quotations) and like 80% of the image results are from this blog, hahaha.

  3. Oh man. I almost peed a little I laughed so hard when I read that the Lightning were interested in Sundin. They are crrrrazy!

    I really don't get Ryan Malone as a hottie. I know so many people that are majorly into him. But I'm just all meh about him.

    Goose is tres handsome. And I had no idea who Trent Edwards was, but I now might have to pay more attention. YUM!

    From what I remember about the pictures I've seen of Mrs. Malone she is the most stereotypically freaky looking "hot" blonde, but she's boning Ryan Malone who normally looks better so, advantage: her.

    I must admit I've fallen into the "Ryan Malone, here's the key to my house, come on by anytime" Ry-ry fanbase, but that picture has seriously killed my mojo.

    Why are the women of Western New York so blessed to have these two specimens of male perfection walking amongst us? I really don't know, but I'm afraid if I question it too hard, they might go away and all we'll have left is Tim Connolly. Booooooo!!!!

    I just noticed that the Malone picture actually shows his face. I was looking elsewhere.

    Also, I agree, Goose is just perfection in the form of a man.
