Guess Who’s Forty-Three and Ready to Rock?

–ALARM RINGS–

Unnh. Training camp still sucks. But why on earth does my face hurt so much this morning. I’m sensing a presence i haven’t felt since…since… Continue reading

San Jose: FAIL

Seriously, San Jose? Three goals in the first three and a half minutes. Three goals on a world class exceptional okay professional goalie. And you shit the bed that much? You get beat by goddamn CuJo? No one in the whole damned world knew that CuJo was their backup. I checked. Even Flames fans were clueless. You better shape the fuck up, assholes.

Western Conference Goons, You Are All On Notice: BOOOOGAAAARD’s Back!

Boogs

The moment finally arrived. Although he returned the other night in the Wild’s win against the Colorado Avalanche, Derek Boogaard returned to his pugilistic ways last night in Minnesota’s tilt against the surging San Jose Sharks. Although the Wild lost to the Sharks 4-3 in the shootout after Marian Gaborik tied it up with only 28 seconds left and defensemen Kurtis Foster suffered a broken leg when he violently crashed into the boards; it was nevertheless nice to see Boogaard back.

 In only his 27th game in an injury-plagued season, Boogey was hungry and last night, and Jody Shelley just happened to be the goon de jour.

Goon of the Week(or so): Kelly Chase

Wait a minute, you’re thinking. Isn’t Kelly Chase retired? How the hell does a retired guy get to be Goon of the Week? He may be retired, but Chase still gets to be the Goon of the Week after his lengthy appearance on a St. Louis sports talk radio show earlier this week. Chase spent his playing career (mostly with Hartford and St. Louis) as an undersized but always game agitator/enforcer, never unwilling to drop the gloves with substantially larger guys. If you don’t remember, or just want to reminisce, here’s a fun clip:

Goon of the Week: Craig Weller

Craig Weller of the Phoenix Coyotes already held a special place in Goondome for his pursuit and clotheslining early this season of superpest Jordin Tootoo after Tootoo had (surprise!) cheapshotted one of his teammates. I’ll give you that video after the jump, but that’s not why Weller is the Goon of the Week.

No, he earned that honor for a 5-second stretch in a game last Thursday versus the Blue Jackets. As you will see, Weller crushes Rick Nash into the boards, and then runs over another Jacket for good measure. Jackets enforcer Ole-Kristian Tollefsen comes rushing to the scene…only to get met with Weller’s gloveless fist, resulting in a one-punch TKO:

Fighting In Hockey? Not Just for the Boys Anymore!

FightCamp

Earlier today on the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s web site, a story was posted involving violence and a potentially serious injury that occurred at a high school hockey game in Northern Minnesota. Apparently, things got a little chippy after a whistle and a little fracas broke out. Oh sure, you’ve heard it all before, right? Well, this time it’s different: it was a girl’s high school hockey game.

On January 26th, in the waning seconds of a 3-2 game between International Falls and Moose Lake-Willow River, sophmore forward Kim Ergen was seriously injured, even experiencing temporary paralysis after a fight broke out in front of the International Falls goal.

Now we can’t stand idly by and allow things like this to happen and I think I may have the solution: The First Annual Boogaard Fighting Camp For Girls! Continue reading
