It's playoff time!

THE LEAFS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS. Last year Emily picked the Pens to win the Cup and Shelly picked the Nucks, so clearly we're no fortune-tellers. Here are our brackets:

We're not dead

...we're just lazy. Anyway, yay for 2012 being over and the lockout being over and stuff. During the lockout, we made a post talking about why we weren't too upset about taking a vacation from hockey. Well now that we're sucked back in, might as well make a list of our favourite hockey moments.

So we made a song

We'd sing it but we'd like to avoid the embarrassment. So here are the lyrics, sung to the tune of My Heart Will Go On

Every night in the winter
I love you, I hate you
That is how I know you're so dumb

Far across the ice rink
And goal posts between us
You have come to show you don't care

Fehr, in a car, or wherever you are 
I believe that this season is screwed
Once more you locked up the door
And you're gone from my heart 
And my cheques will go on and on

Cups can be won one time
And last for a lifetime
And never re-won till we're gone

Love will be world juniors
The one tourny, to hold to
In my life it's all that, we'll win

Fehr, in a car, or wherever you are
I believe that I'l just watch the Jays
Once more you locked up the door
And you're gone from my heart now
My cheques will go on and on

Not here, no Loooosing to fear
And I know that the drought will go on
We'll stay forever this way
I am safe with my wallet
And my cheques will go on and on

The Ginger Snowflake Hall of Fame: 2012 Inductees

The Hockey Hall of Fame kind of honoured four new inductees this weekend. The ceremony was a little bit unusual this year, since as we know the NHL and NHLPA are stupid. But not to worry, the ceremonies for the Ginger Snowflake Hall of Fame will continue as planned. You can see last year's induction here, and this year's below:

The Prototypical Hockey Fangirl?

Ed note: We like having people write guest posts for us. Here's one by our friend Ashley. You can follow her on twitter: @arguela15

What’s a hockey fangirl?

It’s quite the question, isn’t it? The topic came to mind when Eric Prime asked his followers to define the word ‘Puckbunny’ last September and it got me thinking about how female hockey fans are painted as a whole.

Halloween in the NHL: 2012 edition

As the lockout drags on, NHL fans are getting a little tired of things, while the players have some extra time this year to plan their Halloween costumes. The owners? Well, we're not too sure what the owners are doing, but we like to imagine them sitting in a smoke-filled boardroom cackling about the misery of others while taking turns throwing wads of bills into a bonfire. 

Let's focus on the Halloween costumes, shall we? (Here's our handy dandy guide to last year's costumes)
As always, thanks to the players and their wives/girlfriends for the pictures.
