Holy crap! Topsy turvy!!! Germany bests Canada at “Our Sport” and the Rags are trading with the Devils! Next you’ll tell me that Patches is coming to Boston (but PLEASE, don’t ever tell me that) or that the Jamaican bobsled team is winning gold (I’m okay with the latter)

Wunder auf Eis!!!!!
Do it!!!!l

Grabner to Devils for 2nd & middling prospect

Yup. VA must have thrown this together before the trade.

I actually did a quick spell-check on the article this morning and thought of inserting the Grabner deal, but I decided not to ruin the integrity of GH’s content, or something like that.

Ty Anderson was suggesting that something big might be in the works after all.

I’m not sure I’m prepared for that if it happens.

YES! Wish I could have seen more of the men’s tournament. Think I’ve barely seen a full period.

I’ve watched next to nothing but when I saw there was only 6 minutes left with Germany winning I brought up the feed here at work

Saw a couple of matches while I was in Slovakia but now I’m back in GB it’s been curling or sliding sad Why do we have to be good at the dull sports!?

Like JR or not, his pure joy here is just awesome.

I’ve never been a big JR fan, but he does say what he feels, unlike so many talking head robots. Great to see he was so caught up .in the Olympic team.

Love the somewhat delayed reaction from Tappen. Don’t think I’ve ever seen her not composed like that

Morning, pals!

  • Well, it was time to move Frankie since we’ve had him rotting on the bench for quite a while. Sucks when a guy gets hurt and the rest of the team finds chemistry in the meantime. Happened to Mark Stuart when he got hurt and Boychuk replaced him in 2010-11.
  • At least that makes O’Gara for Holden an even swap.
  • Donny’s definitely got something else up his sleeve if you ask me. Not that you asked me.

  • The Habs are falling apart. Weber out for the rest of the season and Price out indefinitely with a concussion. Feel bad for those guys but not bad enough not to laugh at sorry state of the Habs.

  • Coincidentally, both of my gif choices were the first result for what I searched for, but they match!

    I hope Donny stays calm.
    Musn’t …upset…. chemistry.

    Morning all. Stupid early day and I just want to go home and go to bed. I’m definitely joining the Cult of Chara and will move to the Chara compound and eat plants and talk to pigeons all while listening to the glorious Chara sermons. I will be a proud Zee-ite.

    His instagram is a treasure. How tall do you think his mother is?

    His mom must be 6 feet tall! (Sleeps in the bed with her legs in the hall!)

    Hi Pals!
    Awww! Good luck, Frankie!!! Sadly, I don’t want you to find your game in the Eastern Conference. Please, go west, young man.
    Trooper Jo went to work this morn. She’s staying for half a day.
    I am looking to paddle!! Waiting for responses.
    I wonder where (Rick) Nash will land? He is a difference maker – when he wants to be. I’m happy with Sweenius’ going for depth on D. Tweak, don’t disrupt. I don’t have a problem with letting Frankie V go – even though he comes from close to home (full disclosure – I was born in Springfield, MA { not the Springfield the Simpsons live in, although it’s been suggested that we’re related }[fake news]).
    I really should find something productive to do….. aww, screw that!

    I was sad for you because Frankie’s your dude, but I think he’ll get a great opportunity in Florida and it’s better than losing him to waivers.
