Anyone else watch it? #OffTopic
Downtime November 1st 2009Just wanted to apologize for the downtime yesterday. The site was down from the afternoon until sometime late last night. I was told it was some server issues but they've seemingly be resolved. It won't happen often.
Thanks for understanding.
2 Defense Playing Forward For CanucksYup, our injury situation hasn't slowed down one bit. Latest injuries are Bolduc and Burrows (game time decision). So Canucks will have to defensemen playing as forwards (Aaron Rome and Mathieu Schneider). It's at the point where our call ups are even getting hurt.
Glass - Sedin - Samuelsson
Grabner - Kesler - Raymond
Rome - Bliznak - Bernier
Hordichuk - Rypien - Schneider
Injuries so far this year (some are back):
Bolduc (AHL callup)
Sean Avery insults Bruce Boudreau on his weightHahahahahahahaha
Sean Avery might have been trying to keep a lower profile since returning to the NHL with the New York Rangers last March, but he still has a mean streak.
The much publicized forward reportedly took some verbal shots at Washington Capitals head coach Bruce Boudreau in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs last season.
According to an excerpt of Boudreau's new book, Gabby: Confessions of a Hockey Lifer, obtained by The Washington Times, Avery made disparaging comments about the weight of the Capitals' coach during Game 7.
"He told me I was the biggest, fattest bleeping pig he had ever seen," recounted Boudreau in his book. "He told me I was fatter than bleeping Ken Hitchcock. He told me I was going to die because I was such a fat bleep."
Boudreau coached Avery while they were both with the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL in 2003. Avery played in three playoff games for Manchester, the Los Angeles Kings AHL affiliate, after being acquired as part of a package of players and picks from the Detroit Red Wings for defenceman Mathieu Schneider.
When commenting on Avery's playing ability, Boudreau explained he had respect for what the controversial forward can do on the ice.
"He's a really good hockey player. I've had him, know of him, played with his dad and all of those things. But he knows how important the playoffs are and he's just going to be a really good thorn in our side that can play hockey with the best of them."

This is starting to get ridiculous.
Valtteri Filppula out 6-8 weeks with broken wristInjuries keep piling up for the Red Wings. At this rate, they could miss the playoffs for the first time in nearly 20 years!

Gaborik injured; won't play vs NYIHere we go again. Poor Marian Gaborik can never catch a break!
The New York Rangers will be without their top gun, Marian Gaborik, for Wednesday's game against the New York Islanders at the Nassau Coliseum.
Gaborik left Monday's 5-2 win over Phoenix after a collision with Coyotes forward Petr Prucha and did not return. Earlier in the game, he scored his team-high 10th goal. He also leads the Rangers with 18 points in 12 games.
"He won't be playing tonight," Rangers coach John Tortorella told the media after Wednesday's morning skate at the Coliseum. "I'm not going to get into what he has."
P.A. Parenteau, a 26-year-old right wing who was leading the AHL with 8 goals, was recalled Tuesday from Hartford and will play against the Isles.
Tortorella said Gaborik's injury is not related to the hip, groin and back ailments that forced the All-Star to miss 65 games in 2008-09, his last season with the Minnesota Wild.
"I have no idea" Tortorella replied when asked when Gaborik will be able to return to the lineup. The Rangers' next game after facing the Islanders is on Friday in Minnesota -- where Gaborik spent his first eight NHL seasons before signing with the Rangers this summer.
