The easy comment here is Matt Cooke. Growing up I loved the Pens second to the Blues. Family lol. Now, I say Fuck the Pens. Crosbitch and the Cookiecunt. That's right, cunt (no actual offense intended to those who are offended by the word). Dirty hockey the way Philly loved it back in the day. But not real hockey, there used to be hard fucking open ice hits that didn't involve the head. It was called a hip check. A man named Jamie Rivers new how to throw them. Jamie fucking Rivers. The last of the open ice hitters not named Oshie fucking up people not looking legally.
We have a good team, though we are not unlike the team that drafted Stemp as the Blues savior. Sure we will use our 6th overall pick (ideally) for a dman, but we will at least get Jaden and Tara for the next season to replace Crack and Ports. I wish Port could be as good as a bad wine, but shit, lets be serious. Crack is just that good. Good enough to make the lineup, but seriously, does anyone outside of an addict really want to do it?
Defense? Still not worried here. Pietr is the man, hopefully not hurt passed next season. Shat or the Captain or the Kirk or the Shattner Kirk is looking really good. Coli made a non appearance, oh well.
My last point, play Allen. Shit it doesn't matter. Bishop and Pietr got their tryouts way ahead, why not see if he doesn't get fucked up at the NHL level. If he does, don't we have some Russian goalie that is looking to get over here without playing in the minors? From what I hear the guy is good and ready to play, but fuck the Russians right? I mean we have been doing that in St. Louis since Khavanov, who would have been good as a rookie in this day and age, but fucked ass in his. So bring up Allen, give Conks the day off, he will have many after this year anyway.
