Of course, preseason has it's own rewards (which I will show you shortly, don't worry), but I'm really curious as to what everyone thinks about all the injuries going around right now. It seems like almost every team has at least one person out -hell, the Pens entire first line, part of their second and all of their letters are out right now (Sid, Duper, Kuni and Geno -Sid has the C, and Geno and Kuni As, in case anyone's curious). Not to mention that the Stars have people out (Val, 1RW and Kari, G, got pulled today -don't know if it was a scheduled goalie switch or what), Claude's out for a pulled groin, Quick's still out (G for the Kings, he fucked up his foot over the summer) and Doughty is out indefinitely with an upper body injury. And those are just ones I heard about. What the fuck, Hockey Gods, fucking with us already?
Good things have come, too, though, Stars beat the Blues tonight (FUCK YOU, TJ OSHIE, STOP TRYING TO STOCKHOLM ME INTO LIKING YOU, MOTHERFUCKER), the Hawks are looking good and, perhaps best of all, CAREY FUCKEN PRICE IS BACK IN HIS NET AND IS PLAYING AS GOOD AS EVER, SO FUCK YOU RANGERS. FUCK YOU SO HARD AND WITH NO LUBE.
In addition to those awesome things, here's a couple more:
For anyone doesn't know, these are the Patricks, Kane and Sharp, from l to r. Kaner caught a piece of a puck to the face and Sharpy got a high stick, and then these two assholes took fucken pictures to post on the internet. I know this was all you, Sharpy, and I'm not sure if I want to beat you for being a troll or kiss you for posting them. Probably both. Now I'm imagining Jonny fucking Kaner's face, his thumb pressed against the cut on Kaner's face, drawing these gorgeous noises from him... Fuck you, Sharpy, this is all your fault.
So, yeah, Tyler Seguin. Who is so blissed out because he's playing on a line with his
