Believe it or not, this has been a whole season of fuck so far. This all started in the off season when a buddy at work confirmed my wish of having Halak in a Blues jersey, just as I had said we should have done at the trade deadline of the previous season. This was an elated fuck. I couldn't believe it, we did something exactly as I had thought the Blues should do. I thought that the solid pre-season play of Nikitin and Cole would solidify a long list of capable dmen.
The season opens with a stellar run. Another good fuck. Then it happened. The d core goes down in a rash of bad and unlucky injuries. Still, we have good players on the ice and even get to see a bit of the new (young) dmen. Then, the ass romp of the hockey gods gives us the injuries to Osh, Mac, and Perron. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, and fuck. I think that is the appropriate number of fucks to injuries at this point. However, the Blues keep things interesting and win a few games thanks to guys like Dags, Techno, Steen, Brewer, and Winny (hard to believe fuck).
Still, this is a fuck moment. Of course, the depleted Blues start to wear and tear. Oh fuck. We start our slide from the potential 4th place to the current (luckily fuck) 11th place. Then we start to make deals to make ourselves feel better. They both come from the KHL (fuck). They both end in fuck, fuck. Thanks to fuck nossels Nashville and San Jose. Not that those moves would have made that big of a fucking deal, but fuck, let's see something go right.
We get Oshie back (thankful fuck). We still lose (oh shit fuck, but we kinda saw it coming). Management holds firm that we are still a playoff contender as is. Oh fuck it's happening again. Perron and Mac are not drooling on themselves, reserved fuck, but there is no timetable for their returns (expected fuck).
Long story short, this has been a season of fuck, and or fucks. Let's hope that the Blues and soon to be new ownership group gets the fuck together and figures this shit out before we are fighting the Oilers and Isles for a top pick again. However, I must say the Blues are doing a decent effort keeping themselves in the position to do the late season push for a playoff spot. Though I wish we would do a little more to get the fuck in the playoffs.
Thanks for letting me rant and I would appreciate any and all fucking thoughts.
