It's a tradition like no other: No, not The Masters coming up next week, but the laffs have been eliminated from the play-offs yet again! Did any of us really not know this was coming? You'd have to be the dumbest of the dumb... or a laff fan. They never cease to amaze us in their ability to find ways to suck. This year might be their masterpiece, and you leafers have that tie-abusing czar himself, Brian Burke to thank. That's one heck of a re-build you have going there. You're, what? 3 or 4 years into it and you're where? Well done, well done. As you can expect, we have a few things to say at their expense this week.
However, we say these things with swollen tongues as we live-up to a promise we made earlier this year when we said we'd try out ghost peppers live on the show. We do it (although veeeeeeerrrrryyy carefully) and live to tell the story. The things we do for you people.
Once we get done with taking out the trash, we look at the week that was for the Sens:
Devils 1 - Sens 0
Sens 1 - Habs 5
Pens 4 - Sens 8
Sens 6 - Jets 4
Yeah, I think we all saw that coming, right? Lose, yet again, in stunning fashion, to the worst team in the East then slaughter the hottest team in the league. Top that off with one of the most exciting games of the year in Winnipeg and you have some hockey to talk about folks! They're a unpredictable bunch these Sens, but they sure can be fun.
Once we're done with the game, we take a look at some other topics, including the Duncan Keith suspension and why it made no sense. That topic leads us to the recent suspensions in the NFL and how they expose the NHL as soooo bush league. We also discuss what looks to be a promising sign in Quebec City, read some e-mails and also re-visit a few more old segments from our past.
Show 199: Complete. Next week is the big one!
