See You On the Fairway: Montréal Edition

Not every team in the playoffs gets to hoist the Stanley Cup. Try as they may, 29 teams will end their hockey-related obligations without lifting the Holy Grail of Hockey. We here at MYFO encourage you to erase their substandard play from your collective memory, and join us in wishing them good luck on the golf course.

What Happened: The Habs were plugging along at the top of the Eastern Conference. Then, feeling confident enough in Carey Price, they traded Cristobal Huet to the Capitals for a 2009 second round draft pick. Although the strategy worked for the regular season, Mr. LOLs unraveled in the playoffs. Stop texting Halak on the bench, Carey! All of the blame cannot be placed on Price, though. Alexei Kovalev scored one goal in the Philadelphia series after Game 1, and the skating Kostitsyns disappeared after the first round as well.

Their Year in MYFO: Guy Carbonneau’s tie and Patrice Brisebois’ balls were sick and tired of their owners. Tom Kostopoulos and Ryan O’Byrne almost pulled off the crime of the century.

The Silver Lining: They did not get fired from the Canadian office until the building burned down. Almost every important player will return. And hopefully, Price will return to second grade to work on his spelling.

  1. Price is looking forward to this summer to play some GTA IV and to get his frost mage geared to run Karazhan.

  2. Loved your live blog of the Sharks-Dallas game! I think it was pants down, hilarious.

  3. daniella: I will have to steal the term “pants down hilarious” from now on.

  4. Go for it. I stole it from Jack on the show Will & Grace and used it ever since (circa 1999).

  5. / still in too much of a stupor to comment
