Since HI/O is our beloved saloon -- word to Front, what up holmes ? -- it's only fitting that we discuss the rules that go into effect starting wednesday pertaining to liquid frivolities. Here are suggestions but feel free to weigh in: - Desharnais thrown of the f/o circle : 2s - Subban spinorama: 2s - Gallagher goalie interference: 3s - Pacioretty breakaway: sip till he shoots (finish glass if he scores) - Emelin hip check: 3s - Mention of "warrior" re: Gorges: 3s - Dman giveaway: 5s - "Carey Price robs" : 2s - Subban slapshot: 2s, 5s if scores - Eller puck possession: starts sippin until he passes, finish glass if he shoots EDIT: s is for sips. I mean we all need to make it past Parros' first shift, don't we ?

More off topic. Sorry: - The Selke trophy needs to stop being a reputation trophy. Because when you read the description, you'd think that guys like Pleks or Couturier might eventually get a look. Instead, whatever the numbers or the actual games played it's always between Toews, Datsyuk or Bergie. I love them, but I thought the idea was to give props to essentially defensive forwards. Then again I might be wrong. - The Dmen need another trophy. The Norris, for exlusive defensive prowess, as it should be. And another for the offensive-minded D. An anti Selke if you will. Like a Coffey or an Orr trophy or whatever. That way, a 2013 Subban AND a Suter could be legit candidates and both eventually win without any controversy. Plus there's already so many trophies for forwards. Goalies even have 2. So should the D.

Congrats on the boys for the 100 pts :) If we manage to fix the PP, I think we can get deep. Now, I know this is officially the moment for all of us to collectively lose our marbles and start overthinking what's to come starting wednesday but I'd like to ask a question to the Commentariat that's completely off topic: What in Satan's bowtie is a Nikita Sherbak ? I almost never heard of this kid all year and suddenly I see his name popping up everywhere. Could we and shoul we try to get him at 1st come draft day ?

I'm gonna sound like a huge groupie (or a male puck bunny....so a puck.....hare ? I'm bad at metaphor ) but I don't care: Agosta is my favourite woman hockey player...........but I'm in love with the eyes of the swiss goalie. I'm not gonna make a five hole joke with Florence Schelling because I'm classy like that, but we all know it's implied :) Go Canada !!!

Fearless prediction: Subban will work his way up, starting from 7th, and will make all his haters eat crow with a devilish grin and a gold medal. I'm OK with having him as 7th for now. The amount of unwarranted hate this kid gets is really ridiculous. I hate the Bruins to death, but I'll be rooting for Bergie. Been a fan of Crosby since when I lived in Rimouski during his junior years, but at least a chunkful of idiots stop calling him Cindy during the Olympics. Everything you can say PK's doing, others do it too. Sometimes PK is better than the others, sometimes not. But it's hardly a reason to hate him this much. I understand that Habs fans will never forget Chara for Patch, I can relate. What did PK do to warrant so much disrespect in the NHL fanbase ?
