How soon can we get Kenny Linseman out of retirement and back in Oiler silks to pitchfork CFP?

Karmas either a bitch, doesn't exist, or we're on the wrong side.

Today, I said "well, at least this isn't as bad as when we traded Gretzky". Except we won the Cup the next year and it would take a brave man to bet on the Oilers making the playoffs in 2007-08.

So, yeah, I agree, except I'd replace "NOOOOO" with a less family-friendly, more Anglo-Saxon word.

If you had put up that picture of Pronger, his wife and his kids celebrating on the ice, I miight have puked on my computer screen. I don't know how she pulled it off given she lives in California, but LFP looked like she was fake n' baking. She was orange.

Karma, if it did exist, would dictate Pronger not getting to skate with Stanley, but something more like this:

And given today's wheelings and dealings oil fans can look forward to Smyth (possibly) signing with the Islanders and another lacklustre oiler year? weeping.

SweatyO said...

Fuck, better Smyth sign out east than sign in the Western Conference.

Watch the Ducks sign him this summer.....just when you think it can't get worse, it will.

Jordi said...

I laughed. Then I got further down then I cried.

I was happy for Rob and Teemu. They deserved it.

This was the perfect end to this season. No, actually, the perfect end to the season will be on Friday, when Stephen Mandel and Cal Nichols are on the cover of the Journal, holding hands, arms aloft, under the headline "DOWNTOWN ARENA!" in a wartime font. Then Wayne Gretzky dies when Ryan Smyth loses control of his single-engine Cessna and plows into the Wayne Gretzky & Friends annual charity golf tournament, taking with him the lives of Mark Messier and Cujo, but sparing Brett Hull. Then the Tragically Hip write a song about the whole year called "Trouble on the Rigs."

Bethany said...

Haha great pictures...that was classic.

Steph said...

Awful. Just painful.

I have to agree that if Lauren had appeared in any of those pictures I would have puked. Again. Augh.

Anybody who could stomach the sight of Chris Pronger holding the Cup could stomach anything.

When it became clear that the Ducks were going to win, I was hoping that Pronger would at least drop Stanley the instant he got his hands on the Cup, allowing me to say things like "at least the Cup rejected that bastard." No such luck. So I'll just cheer for Todd Marchant instead and pretend nothing else ever happened.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Drinking will make it all easier to take.

Trust me.

Zodiac said...

I like how Todd Marchant yelled that the "cup is coming back to Buffalo"... thanks brodie, yer hearts in the right place but ummm, that's not really what we were looking for...

court said...

Fuuuuuuhhhuhuhuhhuhuuuck.


I'm just going to pretend this whole disgusting season never happened, 'kay?

If it makes anybody feel any better the BBC pronounces it "Pron-jer."
No? Didn't think so.

SweatyO: It could get worse.. he could sign in Calgary.

I don't know....signing Smyth forces the Flames to likely ditch Iginla, which makes them a worse team (assuming that they get the equivalent of Lupul, Smid, and three draft picks for Iginla, because apparently that's a great return for such a player, to hear Lowe tell it).

So it might be worse. Personally, I hope he signs out east somewhere or comes back to Edmonton. Seeing him sport a Flame, Duck, Avalanche or Red Wing jersey would be too difficult to stomach.

Smyth will head to the Rangers or the Leafs. That's my bet.

They might just do that anyway. Never know.

Thanks for this reminder, boys. Can we get out the shovels now and start covering this portapotty hole?

Oh man, I ended up missing the game, and didn't even think about turning on the TV in fear of catching a glimps of CFP on my TV, but then I come here, even though I had a feeling this would be on here....why do I torture myself.


...sidenote, did anyone else see Pierre Mcguire? the man is so tanned, laughed my ass off

american oil said...

So.....is it just me....but what the fuck was the Edmonton paper doing putting the picture of Pronger holding the cup on the front page? What jackass made that decision????

MT said...

Ottawa tried to keep the Cup out of Pronger's hands, not by beating the Ducks, but by having Vermette dislocate his shoulder. Didn't think he'd be able to lift the Cup, but the F$#!er popped it back in.

Lord Bob said...

What jackass made that decision????

It's the same principle that puts car crashes and big fires on the front page of the paper. "Here's a total catastrophe. Pay a dollar for me to read more."

Christy Hammond said...

Oilers' fans really have had the worst year. I like to blame Pronger for everything falling apart.

Which Edmonton paper?
I saw Giggy on the cover of the Sun, and no Pronger pics in the sports; when I thought for sure the Sun would do that cuz they are famous for that crap.
The Journal? They have the nerve to stoop to the Sun's 'tabloid' level?!?!/ I should write them a nasty letter, but I don't buy the journal anymore since some jackass in my apartment building stole my paper everyday and I cancelled it.
Anyways, FUCK YOU ANAHEIM JERK-OFFS!
I hope Pronger dies in a car crash next year. Or at the very least is seriously injured so that his playing days are over and the Ducks suck the big one in 2007/08 and win the draft lottery so the Oilers get the 1st overall pick in 2008. :P
Me bitter? NOoooooooooooooooo

damn thats funny

SweatyO said...

The worst could be yet to come guys and gals...

Stauffer just floated the scenario that IF Selanne retires, the Ducks will make a big pitch for Ryan Smyth.

Now wouldn't that make you want to puke?

It gets worse, I recently attended a dinner for the new Premier of Alberta and the silent auction which usually has a lot of Oiler memorabilia, had not one single piece. The only framed jersey that was available and sold for quite a high price was guess who?? Yes it was a "Crosby" jersey, Chris would have puked if he had seen that. HEHE!!!! Guess who??
