You know how in the past whenever we said we expected a show to be short then it turned out as long or longer than normal? Well, same thing this week. It really seemed that when we looked at the show outline this week that it would be over in 40 minutes tops but alas, as always, we flapped our way randomly until the hour grew late.
Some of the flapped-upon topics are as follows:
Sens 2 - Rangers 5
Sens 2 - Burkie's Bozos 1
So, the season is under way and though the Sens certainly don't look like giant killers yet, there are signs that this team could make some noise this year. Early results from the crease are all positive as Leclaire has lived up to his billing. The offence seems a little lost at the moment but that just seems to be a matter of time until it comes around. The D is still a work in progress as Philips and A-Train (the REAL monster!) have been stellar but the supporting cast has been inconsistent. Still early, no worries.
As with any game with the Leafs, this one generated all sorts of side topics, including comparisons of the Sens and Habs as rivals to the Laffs, over-excited fan bases, the power of the Golden Gawd and a tale of beavers in Smogtown.
Also on tap, the one and only Alex the Great gets some air time this week as we discuss his Olympic desires and the possibility he may be getting a little high on himself. The Olympics themselves get the once over and Russell prods Shredder on Ray Emery's hot start... just 'cuz.
Stooli is in with the first edition of the News this season and he gets called out by an American for his use of a certain term that is now banned from the show, along with a few others icky words. A rule with no exception, pregnant chicks, daughters and the fathers they drive nuts, generous amounts of Alfie love and Leaf hating. Stir and enjoy.
