WIN

by Anne

Win= what we must do tonight. 'Nuff said. If you're tired of the words "The System" do yourself a favor and do not check out any of the recent player interviews on SabresTV. Its like Lindy promised them an extra 30 seconds of ice time for each time they can use those two words in an interview. Acceptable variations include: "Our System" and "the Team's System." You might be safe with TV's, but avoid Goose, Staffy and Royzie if you'd like to be spared. And watch Petey's because he's just so damn adorable and I just want to hug him.

Moving right along: Tim Connolly is hurt. Look out fans, the next vague injury description buzzword to hit the NHL: "musculoskeletal" which, as has been reported by basically everyone else already, just means "body parts". Its another almost meaningless word to make "upper body injury" sound more informative but, really, it only tells us that the player has not suffered a head injury or ear infection. Whatever, I'm over it.

Let's get on to why the Vancouver Canucks are seriously fighting with the Chicago Blackhawks for best Western Team. And by "best" I mean "most able to feed my addiction for off-ice material relating to players that makes me feel all warm and tingly inside."

Ok, see MJ's blog for links to some AMAZING videos on Blackhawks.com featuring topless players, political ads, James Wisniewski threatening to punch you in the face, and Patrick Kane getting ragged on by his teammates for his wacky Calder trophy figurine.

The Canucks have countered with (merely the beginning of) some amazing photos from their currently-on-going East coast trip. Will we experience such joy from OUR boys when they head West soon?!?! Anyway, here are some goodies... and by goodies I mean all of the pictures that feature BIG BEAR.


BB: Henrik, I thought you said we were meeting in the lobby, where are you?


Brrrrrr, Big Bear's ccccold


Mason and Roberto were just trying to play cool before they each snagged a Sabres water bottle and pennant. Its ok, we know this is all for show, boys.



There is nothing about this picture that should go unnoticed
*The photographer has flat out admitted that he cannot tell Henrik and Daniel Sedin apart
"One of the twins..."
*The Swedes are explaining American Fantasy football to a Dane and a Canadian who probably still thinks they're talking about hockey
*Why are they all crowded onto this table?
*Why are Jannik Hansen's shorts around his ankles?

Good. Times. I cannot wait for the rest of the days.

  1. SERIOUSLY THE CANUCKS AND HAWKS ARE SO AWESOME WITH THEIR INCESSANT PIMPING OF THEIR PLAYERS I CAN'T STAND IT.

    Why can't the Sabres do this???? Why can't they elevate road trips to this level of stalker awesomeness that the Canucks have?? and why are there no shirtless prankster videos of Staffy and Mairsy on the road???!!


    The world needs to know.

  2. To further MJ's sentiments, I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT SUCH PRACTICES SHOULD BE AN NHL-MANDATED THING. Wouldn't that be spectacular??

  3. Henrik Sedin has a slightly wider forehead, I think.

    These pictures have been AWESOME! They're like my end of semester stress relief. Hee.

  4. I love that picture of Bear sitting alone in the lobby. It's such a cool shot. AND PLUS, HE CUT HIS HAIR AND THIS MAKES ME HAPPY. I think he was starting to look too scraggly for my tastes.

    Oh, and in Thomas' interview he did mention a system but Boston's. I heard it and was like 'NOOOO, DON'T TALK ABOUT ANY SYSTEMS.' D;

  5. Oh, hey, so I just realized that while I'm at the game on Friday, you'll be working my section, as I'll be up in row 11 of 318!! Hook me up, okay?

  6. Whoa, Cari, you will be sitting by either my brother or a friend of theirs on Friday. They have seasons in row 11, section 318. The first two seats when you get up there, so they get to stand the whole night, haha.

    Yeah, just felt like getting that out there.

    Because, MJ, the Buffalo Sabres Organization is highly attune to the power half naked Sabres would have over the women of SabreNation. There would be much crashing of servers and a sudden cramming of houses of worship as we, the ladies of SabreLand, finally find God's signal that she is real: video footage of Paul Gaustad's bare torso. But I am thinking of writing my congresswoman. Louise has GOT to be on our side, right?

    He was lookin' a bit shaggy, I prefer my boytoys a little more clean cut. Ahhhh, le sigh. Perhaps he thought I was meeting him there, maybe that's why he looks so sad.

    Oh, and in Thomas' interview he did mention a system but Boston's. I heard it and was like 'NOOOO, DON'T TALK ABOUT ANY SYSTEMS.' D;

    CURSES, that's right! That probably either doubles or cuts in half his bonus time. Probably doubles as it shows he's aware of the other team's plans.

    Sweet. I'll be the girl in the ref shirt shouting about popcorn during the 1st and probably 3rd period, depending on how fast I get through sections. Ya can't miss me.

    I'm determined to be able to tell them apart someday. As much as I love these 'Nucks photos, I wish to high heaven they were Sabres photos!!!

  12. Yeah. I'm in agreement with MJ here. The Sabres really need to get on the ball with this stuff.
