Thursday Morning Funny

Forgive my use of the NHL logo for this post (I didn't have the AHL logo handy), but I came across this article and had to share it immediately in case anyone needed a pick-me-up.

Apparently former Caps' traffic cone blueliner Mathieu Biron has "more to give," which makes sense, as he didn't give the Caps squat. Some choice quotes from an article that both praises and trashes poor Mat:
Since [1999, Biron has] finished seasons with the New York Islanders, Springfield Falcons, Tampa Bay Lightning, San Antonio Rampage, Florida Panthers and the Washington Capitals -- and they all missed the playoffs.
Jeez, what bad luck the guy has. But here's my favorite line:
The problem [with Biron] became that the can't-miss tag turned into a can't-hit, as in the net. His booming shot from the point seemed to go everywhere but on net.
Death, taxes and a Biron slapper sailing wide, eh?

Ahh my favorite pylon.

So who would you rather have on your team out of the following 3.

Doig,Kiwi or Biron.

The reason Brion can't score is because he doesn't shoot from 170 feet away.

Just ask Ivan Majesky!

We can eliminate Biron before we start, leaving us with a decent hitter with no traditional "hockey skills" and a figure skater.

Sadly, I'd pick Kiwi.

Damn, i sure loved Doig when he layed out Lindros when he was on the Rags. Thats was a great game. But yea they all suck.

I blame Kiwi and Doig for our playoff defeat to Tampa. Stupid Cassidy, I still cant believe he alienated Calle Jo from the organization.

JP said...

Yeah, blame Cassidy, not Tweedle Kiwi and Tweedle Doig.

Doig almost won out based on that Lindros hit, but if I was forced at chainsaw-point to pick one, it would be Netsy's boy Joel.

And to anticipate the next question, I'd take Muir over Kiwi. Ugh.

Oh how we forget, dont you remember that Kiwi and Doig were brought to the Caps because they used to be on Cassidy's minor league teams.

Kiwi, Doig and Biron make Muir look like Nick Lindstrom.
