Idiot of the Day Award Goes To: KEITH BALLARD! Also, Ovechkin’s season may be over…

So village idiot and league tough guy Keith Ballard decided to take his frustrations out on  his own teammate, goaltender Tomas Vokoun. In reality Ballard was angry about Kovlalchuck’s goal and tried to break his stick over the cross bar. However, Ballard didn’t look before swinging for the fences and instead hit Vokoun, who was trying to find his jock strap. Vokoun was taken to the hospital for a deep gash to his ear, but will make a full recovery.

The video is pretty funny when you see Ballard do his best Sammy Sosa impression, but what happened after? Where did he go? You don’t really see him again…

Here’s a quick look at it:

The Night Maxime Talbot Called My Friend A *****

Maxime Talbot

CommissionerDangle sent this story to me awhile ago but I forgot to post it, so here it is. It’s a long story the Commish found on hockeyfights.com but it’s worth the read. It’s basically the account of some Hurricane’s fan run in with the Penguins while they were in town for the Eastern Conference Finals this season. Below you can find the text of the story, here is the link to the original.

My Run-In With the Pittsburgh Penguins

Hey guys, I’m sure most of you Pittsburgh guys have seen some of your players around town but Sunday night here in Raleigh I saw a couple of them out and it proved to be a very interesting time. I thought some of the boys here would appreciate a tale like this but couldn’t find the proper place to post it so I figured here would be as good a place as any. I swear that every word of this story is 100% true. It is titled “Penguins Bar Story” or “The Night Maxime Talbot called my friend a p*ssy”. Anyways on with the show….

Kessel Resigns With Bruins; Aaron Ward Back To Carolina

OK, well this is not entirely true, but you can mark this post. Loge19.com is making the call that the Bruins will be resigning Phil Kessel for the 2010 season any day now. How can we make such a claim with unwaivering confidence? Look at the facts: Today the Boston Bruins traded defenseman Aaron Ward to Carolina for Boston College Alum Patrick Eaves and a 2010 fourth round draft pick. Here’s the catch, as soon as the transaction was completed, the Bruins immediately put Eaves on waivers in hopes of another team picking up the contract, or the Bruins buying him out.

Why does this matter? With the Ward trade and Eaves on waivers, this clears up about $2.5 million in cap space that the Bruins were to pay Ward this season. Additionally they may not have to put forward the $1.7 million to Eaves, if someone picks him up. Hopefully you’re starting to see the light here.

Penguins Go Up 2-0/Blackhawks and Wings Game 2 Goal Scorer Guess

He Shoots, He Scores!!!

The Pittsburgh Penguins went up 2-0 on the Carolina Hurricanes tonight by winning in a 7-4 barnburner. Congrats to Loge 69 for winning the Guess the Scorer contest. He has won a Versus t-shirt and poster. Did anyone see Malkin’s third goal of the night? Ridiculous!!! As Ross, “The Answer”, put it, “it must have been hot in the Mellon arena tonight because Malkin was handing out snipesicles”. 

Either way, this Stanley Cup Playoffs have been exactly what the NHL asked for. 4 of the leagues top stars, Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, and Kane have all scored hat tricks at some point. Ovechkin and Crosby in the same game! 

So, for Game 3 of the Hawks/Wings game tomorrow, we’re going to do the same format. In the comments section give me the player you think will score the first goal of the game. As a tie breaker, also give the game time the goal will be scored. The winner will receive a Versus t-shirt and poster.

Pens/Canes Game 2 T-Shirt Guess The Scorer

Slow day in the Loge yesterday, and looks like it could be that way today. But, seeing Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals is tonight, I want to see if we can give away another t-shirt. Our winner from Monday night’s game was Zambooie for guessing the Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks was going to be the first scorer of the game. Congrats. As for the Staal points competition, neither Jordan nor Eric have any points, therefore LPSnipa is on top considering he guessed that they would tie. For tonight, lets use the same format as Monday night. In the comments section below guess which player will score tonight’s first goal. In order to break any ties, please also put at what point in the period the goal is scored. For example, Crosby at 2:14 of the first. Meaning that when the clock reads 17:46 Crosby scores. The person who guesses the closest to the actual time wins. Again, this is for everyone to participate, and please, no duplicate submissions. The winner will receive a Versus t-shirt and poster:

Versus PosterVersus Shirt

As for today, I have an interesting little piece I’ve been working on regarding the Blackhawks and their recent signing. I’ll publish that sometime this afternoon. Until then, you  have until the puck drops tonight to submit your guess.

Staal Brothers Point Competition/Blackhawks and Redwings Pick To Score

Versus ShirtVersus Poster
Above is what the poster and shirt look like. If you cannot tell, the poster is Boston’s Blake Wheeler scoring on Chicago’s Nikolai Khabibulin. I think this was taken during the Bruin’s shootout win during the regular season this year. Either way, above Bulin it says “Sudden Death”, above Wheeler it says “Sudden Life”, and then underneath it says “378000 Seconds. Don’t Miss A Single One”. The shirt is super soft, has goalie mask with wings on the front, the Versus logo, and “2009” behind the logo. 

So, for the Staal Brothers Point Competition, here is what we have for submissions:

Sugar Sean

Eric-4 Jordan-2

Cammi Granato

Eric-6 Jordan-3

LPSnipa

Eric-4 Jordan-4

Freshness

Eric-6 Jordan-3

Loge69

Eric-6 Jordan-4

PatVerbeek

Eric-5 Jordan-3

Here is the competition for tomorrow, and I want a lot more submissions, other than the normies. You really have nothing to lose, and if anything you have a new shirt to workout or lounge in, so lets get some more action. Literally everyone and anyone can submit their vote.

For Game 2 of the Chicago Blackhawks/Detroit Redwings series, give me the player you think is going to score the first goal of the game. Also give me the minute and period you think the goal will be scored, I’ll use that as the tie-breaker. If people choose the same player, the person with the time closest to the goal, their pick will win. Please have your submission in before tomorrow night’s puck drop. Please put your submissions in the comment section. Again, duplicate submissions will be omitted along with the original. The winner will receive a shirt and poster.
