Stars get 2 points in FL trip

January 24, 2009

So, we won’t even mention the 4-2 loss against the Lightning Monday.  That was, well, it was pathetic.  The Stars allowed their first short-handed goal, and despite plenty of power play opportunities weren’t able to get the job done.  It was nice to see Halpie, Jussi and Smitty again though.

Wednesday, they took on the Florida Panthers and was a much better outcome winning 4-1.  Mike Ribeiro got his first career hat trick!!!  SO EXCITING!  Good job Lil Ribbons!!!

Sorry to be MIA so much lately, the All-Star events are this weekend.  I will make a post tomorrow with some fun about the game, and will be liveblogging the game Sunday.

Halfway through the season…

January 19, 2009

Last season, I did a post showing where everyone was after exactly half a season of play, 41 games.  I did it again this year.  I actually spent about 2 hours getting it all in order last week but kept forgetting to post it.  We’re not a few games past the mid-season point, but whatevs.  Here is what the standings looked like.

That’s right you extend Smitty!

July 14, 2008

So, 3 days after Jay Feaster resigned, the Tampa Bay Lightning gave Smitty a 2-year contract extension.  Bout effing time you came to you senses Bolts and realize YOU NEED HIM instead of shopping his butt around.

Shame on you!

I hate so many days between games

March 25, 2008

I’m finding I have nothing to do when there is no hockey on.  So I have taken up crocheting.  Goodness.

Though, if you want something entertaining, there is a lovely new video on the Tampa Bay Lightning site about Mike Smith.

Some new contracts

March 12, 2008

The Dallas Stars have signed Chris Conner (EEEE) and Tobias Stephan to one-year contracts.  Oh I am excited.  I get to see Conner for another year.  Maybe he will actually play with the Stars next season and I can get some wear out of my Conner jersey. 

They also signed Sergei Korostin from the Texas Tornado to a 3-year entry level contract.

YAY CONNER!

Also, the Tampa Bay Lightning have posted a video of interviews with Halpie, Smitty and Jussi.  It’s mostly Halpie and Smitty, but yayy it made me smile.

Steve Ott Suspended

March 11, 2008

Yep, for 3 games for his hit on Leopold Saturday.

Here is the video (it’s not the fight, but they show the actual hit)

Otter is not a dirty player, he just has a dirty mouth.  It is really unfortunate that Leopold got hurt.  I think one game would’ve been enough for a first-time offender, since it seems he briefly left his feet.  I do not, however, believe that Ott intended to injure Leopold, it’s just that Leopold bending over put Ott’s shoulder and arm right by his head.  To me (though I could be biased and I’m trying not to be now that I’m over my original anger) it doesn’t look like Otter wasn’t aiming at his head.

Oh, and San Jose is now top of the Division.

The better news is that the Tampa Bay Lightning won tonight against the New York Islanders. Halpie had 3 points (a goal and 2 assists) and Jussi had an assist. Yay boys!!

Brad Richards and Johan Holmqvist to Dallas

February 26, 2008

It is with a sad and heavy heart to report that HullJack have traded Jeff Halpern, Jussi Jokinen and Mike Smith for center Brad Richards and goalie Johan Holmqvist from Tampa Bay.

I will not lie that I am not pleased about this trade, at all. I lost Halpie and Juicy in one felt swoop.

So with this sadness, I think it is now time to say goodbye to 2 of my favorite players, and Smitty.
