Hockey-Filled Weekend! Yay?

I left a comment on the last post but I got nothing really new for now. I fell asleep literally while blogging last night. Guess you shouldn't blog curled up in blankets on the couch. For now I'll just say that obviously I love the Sabres. Even though I hate them. I'll still be at HSBC twice this weekend. And I still love Hank even though I'm also exasperated with him. Even if he's a scratch I'll be sitting in my seat in my Tallinder jersey. That's just the way it goes.

That said, if I have to watch two games like the Boston game in two nights, I'm dropping a body slam from the 300s on some poor unsuspecting Sabres. Any requests?

I almost want them to lose so I can see that. You are too funny.

The top three for me are (in no particular order)

1. Roy-Z
2. Hank
3. Staff

I'd say Max, but that is so cliché. Max is a high risk, high reward player and I can take a few giveaways from him because I expect them, but these other three are better and they know it.

I haven't been a big fan of the idea of bringing up some of the kids, but it might be time for these three to sit their asses down for a few games so we can see what Gerbe, Mancari and Weber can do up here.

Derek Roy. But do not let Vanek or Pominville get caught in the cross fire. If other guys become collateral damage, so be it. But Vanek and Pominville are the only two who seem to be able to score goals recently

I'm not a small girl so I could probably take out a couple, especially if Roy-Z is one of them.

He's still the top of my list but Hank is climbing. I've coddled him long enough. It might be time to break out the tough love. (Judging by Lindy's last couple of interviews, I think he might agree. Yikes.)

Greg, I also agree with you about Max. I might be writing more about him in the next few days.

Vanek's Hair, now that Vanek has been removed from Roy-Z's line, your guys should be safe.

And could you save the jumping for Saturday. Vanek's Hair will be in attendance and would love to see that live.

Oh, I'll give 'em Friday night. If they're bad both nights, it's over. Be sure to yell hello if I fly past you.

Ahem, you do realize that a body slam is when you pick up somebody else and slam them, not when you jump on top of them. That would be a flying body splash, like the one perfected by Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka. I prefer Randy "Macho Man" Savage's Elbow Drop myself. You'll get more difficulty points if you go for Eddie Guerrero's frog splash.

Totally you should rock a Swanton Bomb.

You are facing the Flyers tonight, you don't even have a thought of going after Danny Briere? Or a Rock Bottom on some Philly fan? Maybe you don't like Timmonen and Pumba?

The Flyers are in town and alls you can think about is pwning some Sabres??

If the Sabres lose to NY, that's definitely grounds for some corporal whining. Maybe try to cause some "collateral damage" to Rick DiPietro when the Icelanders play. That way Crunchy will get the starting gig for team USA (he should probably get it anyway, know).

"Max is a high risk, high reward player and I can take a few giveaways from him because I expect them"

Ever notice that when Max errantly no longer has possession of the puck he "gives it away" while Vanek et al "lose the handle" or have it "intercepted" (even though they shot it right to the opposing player)or have it take a "bad bounce"? Phrasing skews reactions.
