Montreal at Edmonton:
So...the Bleu, Blanc et Rouge decided to come out west for once and visit us gun waving rednecks. Really, you should have seen this coming...cuz it was on the schedule since September...but what you didn't see coming was the complete spanking the Oilers laid down on the Habs. 7 - 2. Sweet sassy goodness that was awesome.
This home win makes up for 1 of the 3 blowouts the Oilers have been on the receiving end of so far this season. Hopefully this win was the result of good play by the Oilers and not simply that the Habs are in the worst losing skid in franchise history (possible exaggeration...really I'm too lazy to look it up), coupled with players that seemingly aren't motivated, coupled with "superstars" that are invisible, coupled with a goalie that couldn't stop a tree from moving. Hopefully this win was actually good, hard nosed play by the Mighty Oil and that was simply why they looked to be the better team. When we lay the smack down to a NW team ahead of us in the standings...I'll be a true re-believer.
It looks like our favorite mouthpiece has gotten himself a ticket to the minors. Who saw this coming?!? The Dallas Stars pretty much said "fuck no" to any future involvement with him and so did the 29 other teams in the NHL...I guess they weren't into sloppy seconds. So it's off to the minors for Avery.
I really do hope he gets his game straight and makes it back in the NHL...cuz he is a decent player and is very good at his job: and that is being a fucktard. It sounds like he will make it back into the big show sooner than later with the Rangers being his new stage from which to profess his douchery, as the Stars approached the Rangers to see if their AHL affiliate, Hartford Wolfpack, would be interested in housing him for the time being. It's believed the Rangers would then pick him up on re-entry waivers for half of the bone headed salary Avery is making.
Until then, gone are Avery's days of taking down celeberty babes and ex supermodels...the tail in the minors isn't as refined. Here's an example of the puck bunnies that frequent the post game hot spots in Hartford:
