Pronger is just one big mother

Uhh, Shea Weber? You're not playing for Nashville at the moment. You can give the dirty play a rest for a while. Or maybe it's just too ingrained in him at this point. :P

Not feeling bad about the Sharks loss yesterday. For some reason, every 4 or 5 games they need a kick in the ass, and they only partially got in Game 1 because they won that one. :P At the end of it all, they got a split in Detroit. Also, it was a nice day outside, tough to be in a bad mood. That's why people around here are a bunch of tree shagging pixies (to quote HOMM5).

Very upsetting quote from Teemu about Pronger that frala shared with me, that I must now inflict upon all of you!
"It helps when you have Pronger in the team," said the cheerful face of the Anaheim Ducks through lean years and fat, 36-year-old Teemu Selanne. "If I go ask Randy [coach Carlyle] to change something, he just laughs at me, or says, 'Get out of here.' But now if there's something, I go to Pronger and say, how about this? Then he goes to Randy, and it's: 'Sure! Why not? Good idea!'

"So Pronger is like a mother in the dressing room. Because you have to keep mother happy. When the dad is unhappy, the family can still be happy. When the mother is unhappy, the whole family is unhappy."

Umm, does anyone understand what this means? Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz should tell his dry cleaner to remove the hangers from the jackets he wears behind the bench. Does he stand stiffly or something? *scratches head*

If you had a hanger in your jacket you'd scrunch your head down and have no-neck like that fool.

I really enjoyed a Randy Carlyle quote from a few days ago in the LA Times. It was about Pronger and all the guys on the team were talking about how Pronger has made them better or made the team better and to get into the mix Randy shouted out, "He's made me a better coach!"

What a strange family--to have Pronger as your dad and Teemu as your mom. That actually fits their personalities--Teemu the sweet kindergarten teacher mom who flails around for attention and bites himself to help his team, and Pronger the philandering dad who is um, big and tall and drops weights on his toes.

Ahh, I hope he's fired. Like, on the one hand it's good if he isn't fired because the Predators will still suck, but on the other hand, it's bad because they'll still be out to kill people all the time.

Hee, I saw that quote but hadn't thought of it that way. Except that Teemu called Pronger the mother. :(

I have an extended family thing going for my team. Joe's the mom, Patty's the dad, Mike Grier is grandma, Curtis Brown is grandpa, McLaren and Hannan are the lesbian aunts, Vlasic is the rebellious teenager who doesn't listen to anyone, Nabby is the cat and Vesa is the dog.

Your family thing may be the best thing I read all day.

Patty is SO the dad. :)

We talked about a Peanuts version too, but I don't remember that one too clearly, except that Nabby was Snoopy and Vesa was Woodstock. :)

lol... I had the same thought about Weber this morning.

They are such a blight upon the league... and upon the world, apparently!

(Deleted comment)
So many things wrong with it. :(

Man, I always talk about how I'll set bias aside to cheer for Team Canada, but between this shit and taking Colby Armstrong, they are REALLY trying to break me this year. :(

I think I may want to be your new best friend. :D lol...

Colby Armstrong is inherently hilarious.

I used to think he was hilarious in a nauseating way (see: the video of him in drag), but ever since he steamrolled Koivu, I've mostly just wanted to punch him in the face. :(

Haven't seen that. Legal or illegal hit?

Legal, and not as bad as his hit on Letowski, but still the kind that doesn't make me very happy.

Ahh, well, I'm surprised Colby has the ability to tie his own skate laces, let own make complex decisions about the morality of hits like that.

Heee. Point.

Also (because god knows I haven't spammed up your journal enough!), I've tried to refrain from commenting on the Pronger and Selanne trauma, because I tried to pretend I didn't read it . . . but it keeps resurfacing in my brain! I am so horrified. :(

It's a good thing I have strong mental defenses (mostly built up because of Derian Hatcher) to preserve my sanity!

Ahh, well, I'm surprised Colby has the ability to tie his own skate laces, let own make complex decisions about the morality of hits like that.

*cries laughing* that is is my fave quote of this week!

The guy is seriously dumb as rocks. He's dim even for a hockey player! He makes Whore look like a rocket scientist.

once I got over being traumatised, so who is the dad if Chris is the mum?

He didn't state, but it sounds like... Carlyle is dad? Meep.

I say again, if I was married to Chris I would cheat.

And drink.

*shudder* He has the most pronounced widow's peak thingie I've ever seen.
