Pundays: Gag Order


After a few week conditioning stint in the minor leagues Pundays is back! And while it does feel good to be looking at the best and worst of the NHL.com Front Page Pun Headlines again, this weeks edition kinda makes me want to gag.

Before his recent offensive outburst, the only place Sam Gagner was going was to every other team in a trade.

You really have to give credit to the Pun Headline Writing Team at NHL.com. They were really thinking outside the box on these Gagner headlines.

As we get closer and closer to the NHL Trading Deadline, the rumors are getting bigger and bigger about which players might be available for the right price.

Get it… the right Par-ice?

Even though Jarome Iginla denies it every chance he gets, you have to think that he could be available for a trade come February 27th, right? Who knows, maybe Flames GM Jay Feaster will just go with the flow.

If the Calgary Flames can’t find the right suitor for Jarome Iginla… they are going to have to find someone else to take care of him.

Let me be the first person to welcome back Ilya Kovalchuk to the 2011-2012 NHL Season.

Devils fans may not be able to handle the truth once their franchise’s accounting books are opened.

It’s PLAYER-NAME-PUN-HEADLINE TIME, bitches!!!

This has zero connection, but happy 50th birthday, Axl Rose!

And happy 8th year of living in oblivion, William Hung!

With the way Evgeni Malkin has been playing, every Penguins win from here on out will be a Malk-Off Win.

Looks like the only grit Drew Doughty has shown this year took an extra half-second to earn.

This is pretty bad even for a James Reimer Pun Headline.

The only thing Henrik Lundqvist steals are the hearts of young girls.

Congrats to the Carolina Hurricanes on winning the Boston Bruins and losing everything else.

Besides his starts, Brian Elliot has also been eating into Jaroslav Halak’s Pun Headline time this season.
And how awesome is “Langen-Burner” on the 2nd line? 

These headlines only make me wish Theo Fleury was still playing.

I can assure you that a .917 Save Percentage and a 2.54 GAA does not instill confidence in anyone.

I’m not sure if this Brooks Orpik-Daniel Paille hit is the best hit of the year…
or just a reminder that hockey players play this game balancing on 3mm of steel.

I can not read this headline without yelling “Timm-Y” loud in my basement.

When Marian Gaborik hangs out with Dustin Brown, this headline takes on a whole different meaning.

And this week’s winner of “Most Incomprehensible Punday“…

Tom B. Stoned was my favorite 1990′s Hip-Hop act.
