Props, I may totally take you up on that--and I also squeal at Gerbe's adorableness, while egging him on to fight. Nothing is more adorable than Gerbe trying to fight someone Chara-sized. He's like a spider monkey.
I do like that Backstrom commercial too. I mostly just like any time hockey players try to act. That Sabres Green Team commercial with Ryan Miller trying out his acting chops is hilarious. He's so wooden, and the crazy eyes...
My dogs are SO afraid of the crazy eyes. The doll fell off of the horse while I was at work, when I got home the corgis were backed into the corner looking at it like: "Please tell us that isn't our new chew toy because we're afraid..."
Have you seen the meme with Chara and Gerbe "NHL celebrates first annual take your kid to work day" Good times!
Seriously though, c'mon over! Trips to Phoenix are always a good time. I've been known to get lost in Kingman, Wickenburg and Surprise all in the same trip! ;-)
(Besides, can you imagine if Mike Smith walks and the "yotes sign Ryan Miller??? How awesome would that be? LOL!)
The ninja monkeys are plotting my demise as we speak....
Hawks are gonna come back, love the way the Wings have played but won't be enough.
If (and I mean IF) Ryan Miller were to be traded I would prefer the Islanders. The Islanders really gave the Pens a run for their money, better than the Bruins. A top goalie would be the edge that the young Islanders need. The Sens could really use Ryan, but it would kill me if he went there. Only thing worse would be the Devils...

Miller's going to be gone... his house is for sale and the way they were talking to him after the last game this season, I definitely think they're going to trade him while he's still worth something. I'd hate him to go to the Sens too...
I was on vacation last week and missed the Pens offensive explosion in Games 4 and 5 against the Sens. My dad was watching the games and giving me updates via text. Which reminds me, I need to find some replays.
Onto the conference finals, a Rangers fan friend texted me the other night after Boston eliminated the Rangers. He said that Chara is like having a tree standing permanently between you and the net. If the Pens defense actually shows up, then it'll be a good series. That's the only concern I have right now. That may change once they start playing though.
OMG, the screaming at the TV my dad and I were doing at the TV last night during the Hawks game - it was ridiculous!
On another note, is there anyone here who actually likes Pierre McGuire? About 20 times a game I'm yelling at the TV to "Shut up, Pierre!". Good lord I hate him. And I'm starting to despise Doc Emerick announcing too - Game 7 I'm going to start making a list of the different verbs he uses to describe what's going on that are ridiculous. "He knifes it into the zone". He sashays over the blue line". Those were moralistic penalties." Can't I just have Pat Foley back, please????
It's not about the color of the ribbon but the quality of the ride. Having said that, I'd like the blue one please!
Schedule's out for the Eastern Conference. Game 1 of Pens-Bruins is Saturday night. Western Conference gets sorted out tonight, and it should be a good game. I wonder what'll happen if Detroit blows a 3-1 series lead...
