Eric Fehr, Jason Arnott and Semyon Varlamov, say goodbye to the Capitals

9 Jul

So yesterday, I learned that Semyon Varlamov is going to the Colorado Avalanche. And I was dancing around my room for 5 minutes straight. YES. I can’t believe this!
I’ve never been a big fan of Varly, I’ve always liked Michal Neuvirth better. Well I have to say, I used to like Varly. He was on the “he’s the goalie for my second favorite team so I kind of have to like him” list until I figured out that he was trash-talking American women. I’m not the most patriotic person in the world but I am an American chica and I wasn’t “down with this” at all. So from that very moment, me and Varly went from being semi-friends to downright enemies. So bye bye, Varly! Props to making it to your “childhood dream team.”

Now when it comes to Eric Fehr and Jason Arnott, I feel like punching a wall (but my pillow will have to do). How can the Capitals do this to me?!

Am I going to miss this bromance? Yes.


Max Talbot to Philadelphia Flyers, Erik Cole to Habs

2 Jul

I feel as though somebody has shot me straight through the heart and I’m bleeding all over my very nice bedroom carpet. It’s a strange feeling, I say. It’s hard to process something like this.

Max Talbot is going to the Philadelphia Flyers. My least, I repeat, least favorite team in the NHL.  I don’t know how I’ll react, to be honest, when I see Maxxy in an orange jersey for the first time. Orange is not his best color and I’m not excited to see him in it at all next season. He’ll never be a Flyer to me; he’ll always be a Penguin. Always. Erik Cole is going to the Montreal Canadiens, whom I could care less about. Honestly, I just don’t care about them but I do care about Cole. And he’s gone now. He was most definitely one of my favorite Hurricanes and this is just a huge loss. I was super duper  happy to learn about Jussi Jokinen and Chad LaRose coming back next season but I’m so disappointed now. Erik helped the Hurricanes win the cup. Erik was a role model for some of the rookies on the Hurricanes. He was a great player and I’ll miss him so much. But I wish the best of luck to both of them (and I’ll secretly be rooting for them).

I’ll miss both of them.
