We tossed in the towel today. DUDE, I AM SO IN. At least we have an honest direction now. There is no way we make the playoffs this year and being in denial only prolongs the inevitable and hurts our draft ranking. We traded Dubnyk to the Wild for a 3rd round pick….. so like peanuts. Higher quality peanuts, but not like, a literal bag of pucks.
So, they are going to bring up McKenna because he is the…… wait…… they want to look at goalie talent in the pipeline…….
AND THEN I WAS JUST
GUISE, BB GOALIE. LIKE IT PRETTY MUCH FELT LIKE UNREALISTIC AND PIPEDREAMISH BUT ZOMG ZOMG THIS ISN’T A DRILL.
Let’s break it down.
1. He is the best goalie.
2. See #1
He was so kind and gracious at his very first prospect camp to a bunch of people who literally knew jack shit about hockey. It was incredibly endearing. Also, he is a bit of a BAMF goalie. So preseason……. He played the second half of a game vs the Kings in LA, which was a split squad game where, literally, all the good King players stayed at home. He not only shut them out, he blanked them in the shootout. Carter, Richards, Kopitar. BOOYAH MOTHERFUCKERS.
Ok, seriously. I would be markedly less ok with this towel throwing if it was marked by Yands/Doan being traded. I’m not ultra connected to Vermette and we can’t afford him next summer so, c’est la vie. (FRENCH. YOU KNOW, LIKE BB GOALIE SPEAKS)
This is a bit of a commitment to Mike Smith. Which is heinous because should you have trade away a better performing player because you idiotically tied all your purse strings to a rock that is sinking and drowning everyone!?!?!?!?! No. Watching Mike Smith play is like watching Real Housewives of Where the Fuck Ever because it’s like HATE WATCHING. You don’t want to hate watch the starting goalie of the team you are devoted to (unless you fuckers go off the deep end and start doing crazy shit like getting rid of OEL).
But you can rest assured, that, especially when BB Goalie gets called up, I will be watching Mike Smith like a hawk. Just waiting for him to let the Avs hang 9 goals on us.
So the BB Goalie will be in goal. In the national hockey league. For the Coyotes. FUCK, WHAT IF IT IS AN AWAY GAME? *checks bank for emergency travel funds*
