BONZAI !!!!!!11111oneoneone

By Gőlbez

After a very busy weekend away from the real world, I find out that secret agent Peter Bondra has signed with the Chicago Blackhawks and ended his 'retirement'.

I'm happy to see Bondra back, because he still does have something left in the tank and can be an exciting player to watch. As a secondary player with the Atlanta Thrashers, Bondra used his bomb from the point on the Power Play and put up a respectable 21 goals and 18 assists in 60 games.

He's also sitting on 498 career goals and you know the Hawks are just waiting to print the Goal #500 t-shirts to sell to their remaining 3000 fans.

Will this signing propel the Hawks into the playoffs? No, but it will improve their offence and energize their fanbase somewhat.

You would have figured that Bondra would have been a perfect fit in DC, since that is where his family lives. Apparently, he burnt some bridges and that was never an option.

I would have loved to have seen Bondra sign with the Canucks. With the ship sinking, the Canucks need to be looking out there for guys like Bondra and Kvasha and DO SOMETHING!
Of course, the Canucks anti-Slovak policy hinders them once again.

On another note, HOLY HAVLAT, BATMAN! He's got 10 goals and 8 assists in 9 games and he doesn't look the worse for wear.

I always felt Martin Havlat was held back somewhat with the dull Senators. Havlat is a brat and a wild child and now the Hawks have unleashed his fury. The d00d is playing like a boy possessed and that's how it should be. Yes, he'll take his fair share of dumb penalties, but the offensive payoff is well worth it. It's just too bad that most of us will miss it because of where he plays.

I was trying to get a head start on my fellow poolies in Yahoo sports, but Bondra isn't even available in there yet! Damn!
