Hearty End-Of-Year Bash ZHL Menu

Here's something to bring up to Dave's cottages next end-of-year-bash!! Howz about a case-load o' this stuff??

Maybe this is a good name for GM Taras' new team??

Thursday, June 28, 2007


A source close to the team has informed your beloved Commish that Mr. T. Rexters, headed by General Manager Taras, is considering a name change to the team.
Apparently, the club is looking for a fresh start after a disastrous season which saw Mr. T. Rexters start and subsequently end the season 28 weeks later never having vacated the dreaded "DFL" position.
GM Taras was heard to say that the present team name was "....getting old."
Perhaps the other ZHL Teams could help GM Taras with the name change. Please post your suggestions in the Comments section.

I promise I won't change the style/look of the blog anymore.



Ok, ok.....I'm not really going to pull the plug on this webpage. Deprive me of all this fun??

Look, I think we all pretty much know that we can all take a good-hearted poke at each other throughout the season. Most of it rings a little close to home (and the truth), but I hope you all take it in the context of what it is....after all, and to quote one of the other ZHL GMs....."IT'S JUST A FUKKING HOCKEY POOL!!!"

Yes.....calm down y'all!!! And yeah, it's hard to not crow when you're in the money, or fighting to get into or staying in the money. Oh, and yeah, I've been at the other end of the stick too.....not necessarily in DFL, but out of the money with months of nothing to look forward to.

I know most of the posts are bullshit and we have fun with that too. So please, when I say that Sandy is home scratching his balls, I don't really know if he IS in fact doing that....he MAY be doing that too, for all I know......

And don't we ALL delete Rick's emails? Why single Sandy out? He had the guts to admit it AND to fess up to Leafs67 (most of us thought it was LUMPY!!!). It's EASTER...a great time for confession!!!

Yup.....just a few days left in the season. I am looking forward to the cottages. I have already sequestered a few pints of Foster's Special Bitter, some CDN cold shots, and some Rickard's Red for our enjoyment. I'll bring up some of Rocco's finer "ISS NORMAL" flicks too.

Boys, it's always a pleasure and lots of fun. Keep it going......the pool is great and the GMs are great too (ok...I'm lying about that last part...).

Just following up on the previous comment by leafs67 in the "ARRRGGGHH" post, who complained that only the "all star GMs" get all the press.

There apparently is a tight battle going on between 9th and 10th place. Please forgive me if the rest of you hadn't noticed.

We should vote on a trophy to commenorate this feat. Any suggestions, as usual, will be greatly valued and highly ignored.



Yes, so here we go with only a few games left.

Way to go JERKY BOYZ!! Backstrom with yet another shutout...too bad Luongo didn't come through tonight, but that would give you a total of 86 wins right now. Vancouver has 2 games to go, Minnesota one. Potential here for 3 more wins (6 total if shutouts!). We are probably looking at 2 more wins for a total of 88.

KACHURA'S KOOKS with another amazing performance from Lundqvist in NY. Turco not having as much luck in Dallas. 3 games to go. Maybe two more wins to go with the one already picked up this week and possibly a total of 86 wins for the year.

GOOD WILLS get a win from Vokoun, who finally played this week. Kipper losing yet another game, this time to SJ. We are all so busy watching the Leafs that no one is perhaps noticing the big fight between Colorado and Calgary. Colorado closing the game and you just KNOW it will come down to the final game Sunday night between these two clubs for the final playoff position. 3 more games for GM Commish and one victory to show. Probably 2 more wins (?) to finish with 84 for the year.

Lucky for LUMPY'S LIONS that Edmonton isn't playing Minnesota a third time (2 shutouts in a row already this week). However, they DO finish against Calgary, who will be looking for a win to knock out Colorado). Two wins from Brodeur already, but it's going to be a tough one on Sunday as NJ plays the Islanders, who might still be in it, depending on their Saturday game. I see 3 wins this week for LUMPY, for a total of 84 wins.

NEWMARKET M.L. missing out on the big Fleury win tonight. 3 more games to go.....will Detroit play Hasek or rest him? My bet is they will rest the old fuk and put Osgood in one more time, especially since Detroit has clinched the Western Division championship. Lehtonen (or is that "Let-Them-In"...thanks GM Kev!) might play once more, so GM Dave will likely finish with 80 victories.

Goalie Wins Category Prediction

12 JERKY BOYZ (88 wins) +2
11 KACHURA'S KOOKS (86 wins) -1
9.5 GOOD WILLS (84 wins) -0.5
9.5 LUMPY'S LIONS (84 wins) -0.5
8 NEWMARKET M.L. (80 wins) -

This would leave both JERKY BOYZ and NEWMARKET M.L. tied for first spot.
Tiebreaker goes to GM Dave unless JERKY BOYZ get another shutout which would rock the GAA category big time. We'll have to see!!

Also, potential for KACHURA'S KOOKS & GOOD WILLS to share 3rd-4th place honours. Tiebreak would go to KACHURA, but again, the GAA category could shift.

Whew!!! Have a great Easter guys!! Enjoy the scoreboard watching and we'll check in a bit later.

Any comments will be highly valued and greatly ignored.


PS: GM DAVE......JERKY BOYZ want to know if you've cleaned your pants out yet this week!!!

Big game right now as Kipper (Good Wills) takes on Luongo (Jerky Boyz).

Will be interesting to see how the last week of the season plays out. With Calgary and Colorado still battling in the West, we may see more of Kipper and that won't be good news for the other ZHL clubs.

Might see some teams rest their superstars for the upcoming playoffs, so be prepared for anything. Always great to see the stats on Tuesday with only a few days to go.

Like GM Dave says, get them brown pants out!


Wednesday, March 28, 2007


Yeah, quite a finish to the season.

Kipper gets the shutout AND the shootout win, and Vokoun came through for me as well. 3 wins.

JERKY BOYZ get the shutout from Backstrom and a shutout win from Luongo to keep pace.

GM Dave says it's close and he is going to wear his brown pants till the end of the season.

Please, Mr. Anonymous, spare us your usual wit. Hide behind your anonymity, you CHICKENSHIT you. You are going to give yourself away some time and the rest of us are going to lay a beatin' on ya!!!! Oh YEAHHHH>...............................

Well, I think that would just about be the end of the season for GOOD WILLS.

Luongo in net (JERKY BOYZ) and the Canucks not only beat Nashville (Vokoun - GOOD WILLS) but get the shutout despite the fact that Nashville DID finally score but the buzzer had already gone.

I sympathy from the rest of the league but boy, MURPHY loves the ZHL huh?


Tuesday, March 20, 2007


Yes, sportsfans.

It would seem that one of our brethren, heretofore known only as "anonymous", has been chosen as this year's ZHL GM "DICK OF THE YEAR". (see previous post - comments).

We hope that HE will run around the cottages naked with the trophy stored in a most appropriate place.

By the way, I continue to entertain REAL comments from stand-up GMs, not chickenshits who prefer to hide behind their anonymity



Time to think about who is most deserving of ZHL GM of the Year for 2006-07.

Is it GM Dave "The Rape & Pillager"?

Or is it JERKY BOYZ "The Four-Headed Hydra"?

What about GM Lumpy? Or GM Taras?

Please vote and leave your comments.

Once we get that out of the way, I've got some other ideas we can vote on (like should GM Dave be on top or bottom when he doles out his favours at the cottages?).

The two biggest frikkin' whiners in the ZHL this year are mortal enemies NEWMARKET MAPLE LEAFS & JERKY BOYZ.

With a commanding lead in the pool, GM Dave has the audacity to start trading players away because of his huge lead. Guess he can afford us lower-placed minions some slack, huh? GM Dave even bids on the same player 3 weeks in a row who is already on another team (by his own admission freakin' cocky is THAT?).

then the JERKY BOYZ with their worries while kicking ass as they eventually assume 2nd place. Oh please.....spare me!!!!!

Any comments from other GMs would be greatly appreciated.

- COMMISH (currently holding desperately on to 2nd place and posting this just to get a rise out of ya)

Looks like the old ZHL blog site isn't being used much.

Partly my fault. Of course, I get a little discouraged when I find out that our official ZHL Website is rarely used as well (at least I update THAT one weekly)....and some ZHL GMs have NEVER been to the site.

Wonderful!....there's lots of fun stuff for us poolies there....

Another nutty week in the ZHL. Hope that I can hang on to second place, but it would appear that the JERKY BOYZ have other intentions.

Guess we can concede the trophy to GM Dave this year. SHIT....probably won cuz I gave him Hossa. Bah.....humbug!
