  • Sheldon Souray

    Hi, My name is Sheldon Souray.

    I am extremely slow and lazy. Sometimes I don’t move at all for minutes on end. I love to use my hooks to grab onto things. I love clutching and grabbing and holding on to anything that is near me. Sometimes I get angry and hit things for no real reason. I sometimes shoot things in random directions but they usually hit something in the way before they get to where there supposed to.

    At one point in my life I liked to shoot pucks hard. I liked to hit other sloths who got to close. One time I was selected among a bunch of other sloths as an All Star sloth but I forget what I did that got me picked. I am a lonely sloth these days.

  • Habs Stink up Saturday Night

    What to say? The Habs put forth a brutal effort against one of the weakest teams in the league. The Capitals started quick and got a couple lucky bounces but the Canadiens skated around like a bunch of lost children. When they did manage to remember it was a hockey game, they missed open nets, hit posts or just couldn’t score despite 40+ shots.

    Mark Streit looked like he’d have a hard time keeping up in the ECHL. Ugly miscomunication with Danis leading to an atrocious goal. Mistake after mistake in his own end, and for an ‘offensive minded’ D-man his shot leaves a lot to be desired as does his play making. Danis himself didn’t play great but can’t be held solely responsible. It’s obvious Andrei Markov can’t have an off night as the Canadiens defence is lacking big time. What happend to Sheldon Souray? A totally different player than last we saw him. All Star selection go to his head? Personal problems? Either way we need to tighten up on D. Even on our win streak we’re just barely getting by.

    Scratching Komisarek for Mark Streit? C’mon.

    Ovechkin had a few strong plays and some speedy outburts but managed not to do too much harm.

    Just an ugly night and an ugly weekend. Write it off and come back strong for next game like a winning team does.
