Richard Bachman owned that game. Sure Henrik Lundqvust was great, but Bacher was better. In a must-win– for pride and bragging rights, I mean– Bachman stood tall and owned an excellent Rangers team.
I wanted to win that one so incredibly bad. Not because I have any hard feelings about B-Rad but because I wanted us to prove that we don’t really need him. Brad Richards is a really nice guy, and I don’t blame him for leaving. Actually, I thank him for leaving. Had Nieuwy re-signed Richie, he wouldn’t have made the Stars a deeper team with the signings of Fiddler, Dvorak, Ryder et al. Of course the perfect scenario would have been to keep Richards AND sign those guys, but I’m content with how everything worked out.
Lost in the mix was the fact that we were also facing former Star Jeff Woywitka. In much the same way that I forgot his existence, I didn’t realize that he played for the Rangers until they were actually playing the game. Also similar was the way he flubbed the puck and allowed Trevor Daley to score his beautiful game-winner.
However, I was a bit sad that my darling Sean wasn’t able to play. I know everyone hates him, but he’s lovely…at least to me. But whatever. Considering the last time we played at MSG with Avery in the lineup, perhaps it’s better that he didn’t play.
I also forgot about the fact that Mike Ribeiro made his first return to MSG since his throat was attacked by that idiot Chris Higgins. I think people tend to forget that that happened, since Ribs kind of acts like it didn’t. It’s like he got his throat hurt, sat out some games, and came back without changing anything. It’s just one of those odd hockey things.
Next up: let’s get revenge against the Isles. Make it happen.
GO STARS GO.
I’m sorry for neglecting this thing. It’s just that nothing substantial is going on in the hockey world.
Unless you count Sean Avery’s arrest. But that was just a small scuffle because the officer looked at Sean’s scarf the wrong way or something.
As for the sale of the Stars, I’m afraid to write anything about it, so as not to jinx it. But I do hope that it’s coming along.
In the meantime, watch the musical American Idiot on Youtube. It’s wonderful. It really is. Here’s part 1:
I’m not done yet. I still have a few more Mean Girls-Stars pictsures up my sleeve.
Ribs isn’t exactly popular, but people are jealous of him.
Too true. But I still think I like him and his antics.
I don’t know why I chose that quote for this particular photo, but I think it’s Mike Green’s fault.
I love them both.
I miss you, Zubie.
This is actually a Glee quote.
That’s not a Mean Girls quote, but since it’s Jack Campbell, I decided to include it.
Speaking of Jack, he’s on Twitter now @JCampbell921. Follow him because he’s awesome.
Today I started a side blog called, Sean Avery’s Sunglasses, where I talk about non-Stars hockey and pop culture. Now, don’t be angry because I’m honoring Sean Avery. But if you are, I don’t judge.
Check it out.
I’m sorry, I had to say that. When someone proves a point, I say “Shut up. No one likes you.”
Anyway, there’s mot much to say. What else can I say other than, This team is done? They’re finished. The Stars are not making the playoffs and that is the sad reality.
And I hate Crosby even more than before if that’s even possible.
More later. Because right now, I have nothing to say.
Guys, it could be much worse. We could still have this-
I laughed at this and it sickened me. Avery, why oh why do you do this to me? I’m determined to hate you, but I just can’t completely hate you. At least you’re doing this with another team…
So I haven’t blogged for a whole week and a half. I haven’t been able to because last week I went down to Dallas and attended the Stars-Blackhawks game on December 29! I got my picture next to Stu’s head! It was a lot of fun and I hope to go to more games in the future.
Some Thoughts From the Past Week or So:
Loui Eriksson’s hat trick was flipping amazing. But then again, Loui is flipping amazing. With the win over the Ducks, that’s two new Year’s Eve wins in a row. That’s also two years in a row with a shorthanded goal by Loui Eriksson. Interesting.
I love how the NHL’s 3 stars of the week are all current or former Stars. I giggled when I first saw that.
You do realize that Wednesday’s game is one of the most important games in the history of sports, right? It’s a game the Stars HAVE to win. Otherwise, I’ll just die. The Stars and the Rangers face off. The biggest story is Sean Avery. This is really the first time I’ve ever wished injury on a player. I truly hate Avery’s guts and I want revenge for what he did to the Stars. With that in mind I wouldn’t be surprised if he feigns injury or something to get out of the game. I’m not gonna lie, but I’m looking forward to this game. If all goes right, it’ll be some intense hockey.
Stars fans, this is a huge anniversary. Today is the on-year anniversary of Sean Avery’s infamous “sloppy seconds” comment.
Let’s all let out a collective, “HALLELUJAH HE’S GONE!”
Yeah, that felt good didn’t it?
So, I’m not going to bore you with some impertinent ranting since we all agree that Avery’s a douche. I mean, you didn’t really want him around, did you? I honestly tried to make myself feel good about the signing when it happened, but I just couldn’t get a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
Today, feel free to take part in random clapping or fun dancing. Just have fun! It’s a joyful anniversary today. Make the most of it.
Now let’s forget about Mr. Avery. It’s all said and done, and he’s only a tiny scar in Stars history now.
And as always, Go Stars!
