    A Handsgate Exclusive, Part I: Collusion, Nostalgia, And Canadian Ro-Sham-Bo 

    Follow me @SharkCircle

    A Handsgate Exclusive is my next blog-series which will tell an entirely fictitious story loosely inspired by the buttocks-grabbing controversy, AKA “Handsgate.” It will be released in three parts. Here is part I.

    DISCLAIMER: All the events and dialogue portrayed come from my own lively imagination and are not real. The police officers in this story are not real-life police officers. I made up their names, personalities, and dialogue. The entire story is a fictional joke. It is not meant to represent actual events, or the actual dialogue or beliefs of any real people. It is using one funny thing that allegedly happened in the hockey world and then making an entirely fictitious story out of it with fake dialogue. With that in mind, the spelling is intentional as well. I don’t know any NHL players and so have no way of representing their personalities or beliefs accurately. It’s all fiction. It’s all a joke. Yeah yeah, jokes have to be funny. At the least, it’s all fiction. Want to make that clear. Good.

    With the rumors that Claud Gireaux was arrested recently for allegedly grabbing the buttocks of a male police officer, many out there in the hockey community (and maybe some other communities) have wondered what exactly happened.

    Luckily, I have sources on the inside in, well, wherever this supposedly happened, Philadelphia probably, and I’ve heard a detailed account of the fateful events that took place that day, revealed here in a behind the scenes Shark Circle exclusive. Click Here To Continue Reading Full Post!

    Shark Circle’s Metropolitan Division Preview and Standings Predictions 

    I’m continuing my season preview with the Metropolitan division. To see my Atlantic Division Preview, click here. I must repeat the disclaimer that I’ve only looked at the roster page for each team, and that’s it. No advanced stats, not even the power-play and penalty kill percentages for each team last year. Just my memory and intuition.

    What They Really Meant, 24/7 Edition: PHILADELPHIA FLYERS

    This post is for humorous and entertainment purposes only. All quotes are taken from 24/7, but the subsequent “analysis” is my creation only, and not intended to accurately reflect the mindset of any person quoted herein.

    Without further delay, I give you What They Really Meant, 24/7 Edition: Philadelphia Flyers, starting with Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette.

    SETTING

    Head coach Peter Laviolette is giving a passionate speech to his players before a game.

    WHAT THEY SAID

    Peter Laviolette: “… We are not a conservative team! We’re a let’s fucking giddy-up and go type of team!”

    WHAT THEY MEANT

    I wonder if they can CG a cowboy hat onto me in post-production for when I’m saying this.

    SETTING

    Head coach Peter Laviolette is being interviewed by HBO about his philosophy on coaching in the National Hockey League.

    WHAT THEY SAID

    Peter Laviolette: “I think that when you enter a season, if your expectation isn’t to win the Stanley cup then you’ve already sold your team short, you’ve already sold your expectations short.”

    WHAT THEY MEANT

    That’s right Calgary, Columbus, New Jersey, Tampa Bay, Anaheim, Edmonton, Minnesota, St Louis, Phoenix, Florida, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Carolina, Dallas, Colorado, New York Islanders, Nashville, I said it. Fuck you! Why do you even bother? CONTINUE READING FULL POST

    What They Really Meant, 24/7 Edition: New York Rangers 

    Introducing a new segment that will run throughout the season, “What They Really Meant.” NHL players and coaches often talk in code; this segment will try to decipher what they really mean, either for humorous purposes (such as today’s post), or realistic analysis.

    Today’s entry will focus on quotes from Episode 1 of HBO’s 24/7 Flyers/Rangers series that leads up to the Winter Classic, starting with the New York Rangers today. Philadelphia Flyers’ quotes will be published tomorrow.

    Today’s blog is for humorous and entertainment purposes only. All quotes are taken from 24/7, but the subsequent “analysis” is my creation only, and not intended to accurately reflect the mindset of any person quoted herein.

    Without further delay, I give you What They Really Meant, 24/7 Edition: New York Rangers.

    Episode 1 of the 24/7 Rangers/Flyers series opens with footage of the players, backed by a chilling John Murphy score. As the narrator starts to talk, I almost expect the words “the Icarus 2 is nearing the surface of the sun” to come out. But they do not. Instead, the narrator eventually stops talking, and the players start. Here are some assorted quotes from throughout the episode.

    SETTING

    New York Rangers left-wing Sean Avery has just finished with some emotional poses during his modeling shoot, and is now being interviewed. CONTINUE READING FULL POST
