Quote of the Week
“It’s going to be so new to these guys (playing in the post-season). We have four great days of prep. If we were going to Calgary or Edmonton we’d be hopping on the bus on Tuesday. We’re practicing at home. There’s no excuses. It’s great. I think there’s a lot of positives.”  - Pats head coach Pat Conacher talking about the upcoming series against Moose Jaw.

Go Warriors

Kyle said...

Anon your either stuipd or begging for attention from Regina again. Since your from MJ i'm guessing both. This story is called Pat Chat. Why don't you go on that shitty little Warriors blog that gets updated once every 3 weeks. Stop trolling for Pats stories on Rod's blog and facebook, and all that other crap you hillbillys like to do. But in 2 weeks we wont have to hear from you losers as you will be enjoying the golfing.

Kyle, get a life. Moose Jaw fans can cheer for their team any time they want, through this blog or any other forum. It's assholes like you that are the reason fans of many WHL teams like MJ, Swift, Brandon, and Stoon think we are arrogant jerks.

Wow, Kyle, did you get fired this morning? You seem kinda grumpy and the series is still 4 days away. "Pat Chat" refers many times this week to a series between Regina and Moose Jaw. So a Warrior fan blogging encouragement for his/her team seems appropriate to me.

I can't even begin to imagine the whining you'll be doing about a two weeks from now.

"Sir Kyle", what makes you think I'm from Moose Jaw. There are TONS of Warrior fans like me that live in Regina.

Go Warriors

Regina sucks!!

Rick said...

Well Kyle did flip his lid, he does have the right to his opinion. Maybe anon doesn't live in MJ my girlfriend and her family are from MJ and are die-hard Pats fans. In fact her mom and dad drive to Regina 20-25 times a season. It will be a hard fought battle both on and off the ice Pats in 7. And Regina sucks hey? Yep we suck so bad that we won the season series against the Warriors.

Doesn't matter! You're all just fodder for the "OIL KINGS"

The Ice will repeat as league champs!!!!!!!

It's funny you should bring up the Ice, the Pats also won that season series. But the Ice really? They have just as much of a chance of being league champs as the Broncos do lol.

who cares if the Pats won the season series against the Oil Kings, that is all before the Oil Kings got Henrik Samuelsson & Travis Ewanyk never played in 1 of those games.

also regular season series mean jack crap come playoff time.... The Pats are in tough enough against the Warriors the team i did not want the Pats to play at all cuz we hardly stand a chance (i hope i eat my words on this tho)

Rick, both teams finished 4-2-2. How does Regina win the season series?

Tell your mother-in-law and father-in-law when they smarten up, we'll gladly welcome them to our program with open arms. You on the other hand, can stay home and sulk.

The Pats won the season series because they both ended with identical records. Because the Pats scored more goals...they get the win technically. You must not read this blog much or follow much of anything, because this was already a big argument last week, so welcome to last week!

You know "Roddy", I strongly disagreed with your position that fighting should be maintained in hockey until I watched The Rangers and New Jersey last night where ten players squared off before the opening face-off. I mean that was very classy and should be mandatory at the start of all games or maybe even each period.As you said so eloquently, that should stop all cheap shots. You, Cherry and the neanderthal who coaches the Rangers should rejoice.

Jeff said...

Anon did you even watch it? NJD put out tough guy line against NYR top line. So Torts called them off the ice and put 3 tough guys on. What happened is what happened it was great. Everyone at the bar cheered and the 20,000 people at the game were on their feet. Maybe anon next time you should close your eyes, or stick to womens hockey.

After the mini brawl off the face-off, I saw one of the best periods in hockey in awhile. Both teams were pumped up and they were throwing the body at each other...and it was all clean! Plus the play was back and forth.

And I'll just state for 'annon' who just mentioned this, only six players dropped the gloves.
