And then there were FOUR.




Voting will start TOMORROW with a more comprehensive post.

Some comments on the players that didn't make it on... The battle between Hot-Rodziak and Moreau was right to the wire, but my timely posting the night of the San Jose win may have had something to do with it. New blood in the final four right?
Speaking of which, props to Slava Trukhno (I can never figure out where the "h" goes in that name) as being the only non-roster player to squeeze into the elusive eight.
At one point, I thought Dustin Penner was going to give Ales Hemsky a run for his money. That would've been amazing. I don't like the same guy winning this thing over and over.. and frankly the only way to stop it is to get more ladies to vote. How can you resist the smile of Brodziak or Lubo?
Nilsson got a few votes. He may have been hampered by his Oilers picture but I think it was more a matter of how great Lubo's is. You feel his smile coming through.

Could Kyle Brodziak ride his fluke overtime winner all of the way to Hot Oil glory? Find out NOW, at hot-oil.blogspot.com!

How the hell did Hot Rodziak win over Moreau??

Lord Bob said...

I'm a bit disappointed by how far Souray's come, honestly. I mean, hot? The man looks like your creepy cousin.

(Word verification: barfing. I am not making this up.)

Hemsky is like Donny Osmond. All the girls hated him but "Donny Omsond Superstar" sold 40 Million copies.

I discovered Souray's alter ego, in case anyone's interested.

Brodziak vs. Hemsky is destined to be the final showdown.

I'm very pleased Moreau is gone! I predict Brodziak vs. Lubo. That will be a tough one. SS does look greasy.

Whatever happens, I vote for Brodz.

Hemi. Hemmerlove. Hemmer Time. The Hummer. our young Czech magician has grown into a Man. does he have a squee-appropriate nickname?



aside: Sheldon's pic doesn't make me think greasy wrestler, it makes me think swarthy-dude-on-cover-of-some-ripped-bodice-heaving-bosom-romance-novel.

or Zorro. Zheldon Zorr-ay.

another Hemsky nickname suggestion: The Pardubician (sounds exotic).

Shelly said...

Well I'm bummed Moreau's not in it, but really, it's not a bad thing to have some new blood.
I still think Hemsky looks 14 and I'm NOT voting for him, anyway he won last year!!
I love-love-love gary b's comment about Shelly's pic, that is *perfect* that's exactly what it looks like!
Here, I've got a trashy romance novel in here somewhere, let me get that pic and put it on the front...MUUUUCH better!!!!!

Everytime I watch him, my mouth pipes out "Holy Shit! What did he just do?!"

Can that be Squee'd?
