So, we're back after a week off and you'd think that with all that time to calm our nerves and a week-end of Alfie love, we'd be calm enough to objectively reflect upon the recent issues the Sens have had with the officials. Well...
REFS!!! YOU SUCK WORSE THAN A PROSTATE EXAM!!!!
Seriously, what's left to say? Lots, apparently. Of course, it will all be passed off as just "whiney Sens fans" but we ask the question this week: when does it become more than just whining? How many times do you see it with your own eyes and simply shrug it off? When does the very integrity of the game come into question? Did Maclean handle it the right way? If you don't like ref talk, best skip this section of the show.
On the other hand, there was a lot of good stuff to be had this week, if you are a Sens fan. The All-Star weekend was a roaring success, with all the Alfie love you could ever want. Finally, the rest of the hockey world gets it; The man is a Gawd! We discuss all the festivities and possibly the greatest All-Star moment of all time.
Oh yeah, we do take a gander at the last 5 games too:
Sens 4 - Sharks 1
Sens 1 - Ducks 2
Sens 1 - Kings 4
Sens 2- Yotes 3
Sens 4 - Bruins 3
The Sens hit the wall last week as a crazy schedule finally caught up to them on the west coast. Maybe Karlsson wasn't really diving; maybe he was just collapsing from exhaustion?
Other topics that get the once over include OV and his selfish insult to hockey fans everywhere, Tim Thomas vs the media, Filatov and his never-ending spiral, a new wrinkle in the concussion debate and what would a week be without Brian Burke and his gargantuan ego making an appearance. This week he's pouting about his girls getting picked on by the big, bad CBC. This guy, I tell ya...
We top it off with a few e-mails and do what we can to keep Stooli awake.
Please enjoy show #193.
