Kyle McLaren scoring goals?

I don't have any dedicated Kyle McLaren or Matt Carle icons yet! They'll have to share. I should make an animated one of the McLaren hit on Letowski or Cajanek. :P

Went to the Penguins game last night with lastcatastrophe *SQUISHES* and sat with tersa and caitlin. We ate at Original Joe's, favourite restaurant of many Sharks players! before the game and went to Ice Insights, which is this Q&A thing for season ticket holders. Ron Wilson and Greg Jamison (what is he? President? CEO?) answered questions. He's scawwy. Then we got to rubberneck at the widdle Penguins as they got off the ice after warm up and walked back to the locker room.

What a weird game! Cheech gone with a boarding major and misconduct pretty much at the beginning of the game, kinda' like Joe in Boston. The lines were being mixed up anyway, so I guess we didn't miss him that much (which is weird to say about Mr Rocket Richard) but after that there was so much rough stuff and penalties. At the end of the night, both our PP and PK had improved. Huh.

The Penguins look soooooo much better than they did 2 seasons ago. They're no longer the defensive disaster they were, although I did see a few instances of slowness getting back. Malkin's pretty nifty and looks like he's going to eat the east up. Crosby pretty much had someone glued to him all night, so I didn't see him do anything exciting. Playoffs seem to be in reach for them this season, especially because they're in the Atlantic division.

Vlasic had 25 minutes of ice time last night. It's truly freakish how good he is. I realised today that he's an Aries rabbit, just like me! Maybe that's why I like him so much. :P

Kyle McLaren behind the other team's net. 3 goals (1 disallowed) in 2 games. WTF?!

fetisha! I uploaded a Lundqvist interview for you. :)

Thank you. :) I loved him fishing and shit. Oh, and his chicken legs!

:) I was very proud of the Penguin boys last night, I didn't expect them to play so well, the Sharks scare me *G* (in a good--holyfuckthey'resodamngood kinda way *grin*). So I was happy to see them put up such a strong effort. Yes, there are problems, but they are looking SO much better.

< /rambly>

I think it really helps that Mario retired. For real. It feels like more of a team now.

That is one of the best things that's happened to the team in the last couple of years, seriously. And now the other veterans, Recchi and Leclair, realize their roles on the team--to be leaders, but to realize that it isn't THEIR team--this team is all about youth and growth, and they need to help them, and not stand in the way of it, and they both seem to get that more.

These guys are young, and excited, and hungry to win, it's so damn refreshing. They actually WORK to win now, even if they're winning, they're still working, still fighting, which is so good to see.

LeClair actually looked pretty good on Saturday, although he didn't capitalize. Recchi I didn't notice at all, if he was even playing. :P

I always enjoy watching a team play, no matter how bad they are, as long as they try (49ers).

Recchi was pretty disappointing. :\ We were watching out for him, and it wasn't so nice. Not quite in the way, but close, y'know? -_- But LeClair did do well!

I never seem to comment but I always read your posts, why is that? they are perfectly contained.

Aww, you know the way to my heart! :P

Kyle! My new friend! I figured out why I love hockey players like Kyle. If he had not been on his way to a game and I would've offered to buy him a beer, i think he totally would have gone with me. haha

ooh! Pens! Did you see Andre???

I was focused on the Sharks pretty much the whole time and only noticed... Malkin, hehe. :P

i have no idea if they even dressed andre for the game. but you would've known if you'd seen him! mmmmandre.

Jamison is both President *and* CEO *and* part of the ownership group.

Which is part of why I think he's fricking awesome: he's one of the highest muckity mucks in the organization, and he's still very cool. :)

I think we need to check Kyle for pods.

I guess the answer is everything.

The McLaren-Ehrhoff exchange program is going fairly well!

McLaren was fantastic. (Of everyone skating, Lover was most impressed with him.)

I guess I'm being hard on Pens. -_- They did play well, and it was the freaking Sharks, after all, they've just been SO fantastic through the beginning of this season. It's definitely improvement over even just last season.

I keep meaning to try to find the video online, to see how much different it looks/feels from live to TV, or at least from a little closer, christ.

Where is Original Joe's? We were walking all around the area of the stadium, is it close?

It's not really that close, at 1st and San Carlos. Something like a 10-15 minute walk from the Tank, I'd think.

People working at the restaurant kept telling us stories about Cheech and Joe. :)
