Filler Friday: File Under "Things That Make No Sense"

Various screenshot of hockey related-things around the internet that just make no sense.

Currently 13th in the Western Conference at 30 -28 - 8 after 66 games.

That's 68 points. In 66 games. And that probably won't even get them a top 5 draft pick this year.

I just don't like this. It just sounds wrong.

I'll bet they were talking about his clothes.

Also, the little slash thing is now an inverted question mark.

Goodbye: Teddy Purcell

Well, Teddy, that time has come. We knew you were going to get traded. You were taking up too much room in the press box and we need that for shiny things to entertain Raitis Ivanans, and Davis Drewiske's hair products. You're already in Tampa* (Sorry). Located on America's wang (Sorry). Maybe you'll get your groove back there. Maybe you'll even be able to play a bottom-six winger consistently. Maybe you'll turn out to be another Matt Moulson, but signs point to no.

Something Teddy really isn't used to anymore.

We here in LA have put together some useful tips to help ease your transition.
  • Your teammates will really like the new guy better if you have an identity. We don't really know what it means, but we think Matt Greene was saying you have no personality.
  • Florida is a Spring Break hot spot, but don't let that fool you. Always ask for proof of age. Especially since only the poor kids would go to a dump like Tampa.
  • Practice your golf swing. I hope you listened to Brad Richardson.

Teddy, as we'll always remember him.

*As someone who has been to Tampa several times (stupid family) I can vouch for it's suckage.

Filler Friday: Pants, pants, and more pants!

Observe, the pants of the Norwegian Men's curling team!

Now, that pattern may look familiar to some of you. Not just because it's argyle, but because LA Kings alternate captain Matt Greene has been seen wearing the green version of these.

I apologize if one of those stupid Carl's Jr commercials shows up.

He learned it from the interwebs.

Also, check out the awesome alligator belt buckle.
If all you see is crotch, that's your problem.

Unfortunately for Matt Greene they were not available in UND.

...but there is a UND hockey stick golf putter thing:
(also available in LA Kings and Minnesota North Stars)

Just like Happy Gilmore!

I can see Matt Greene in these:

Trade Times!

(Teddy Purcell, Alex Frolov, and Jack Johnson)

Teddy Purcell was traded for this dude:

Seriously, there is already a photo of him in the Kings jersey up on the site. Go look for yourself. A faceoff guy will fit-in nicely when Jarret Stoll's junk goes out of whack. Again. UPDATE: Kwisp has a post about the nice copy and paste job from the Kings staffers.

There were some slices of fried gold on the Battle of California post about Lubo going to the Quacks. My favorite: You may own his body, but you don’t own his heart.

The Lubo cookies will make you feel better.
This may be the single greatest thing I have accomplished in five minutes.

Guess who is staying put.
