Any of you WWE fans out there know whose catch phrase that was...yes the Hit Man...well we have the DPBHL Hitmen..are they proving to be the best?...they definitely are close...losing only once this season...has the change behind the bench really made the difference...has Dave “Don’t Call Me Wendel” Clark finally found a home...can Pick Your Poison finally rest easy?...did Pat Ventullo’s living at the rink finally pay off with a solid game plan?...don’t ask me because I have NO idea what turned this group around...my spies have a inside track to the hottest rumour swirling around the rink...Pick Your Poison was seen at the rink, talking contract to become the next head coach of the Green Birds...is there any truth to these rumours?... someone tell me why there’s games on a Wednesday...Tier 2 Friday, Not Monday, Not Sunday, Not Wednesday I’m starting to feel cheated...PYP if your interview doesn’t work with the Green Lanterns you can apply to be the President of my Fan Club...I’m always looking for competent help...good help is sooooo hard to find... .

Champions vs. Hitmen
How many of you were worried after the Champs lost the first two games of the year...I wasn’t...after the thrill of victory comes a down period where, let’s say your content with your accomplishments...Double M and Pylini can only rest for a couple of games before it’s back to work...another off day game saw a marquee matchup versus the Hitmen...it’s the third amigo who saves the day as Rita with a pair saves the day and earns the Pylini’s a 2-2 draw...would the result have been different in last year’s SF if Clark was in goal for the Hitmen?...

Island Boys vs. Greeners
Mr. Greenbirds...here’s a quick check list...please check which items you accomplish... 1. Come out quick-check...2. Open up a lead- check...3. Hold the lead after a period-check... 4. Close out the game and gain two points- are you kidding me.... each week it seems that the Bird Men find another way to cough it up...a penalty shot one week, four goals in three minutes another week, blowing a three goal lead this week...what’s next scoring in your own net?...the GPB can’t stress how crucial these lost points are...the Islanders fight back for a 4-4 tie...suddenly these two teams have found a scoring touch as they each fire four...

Almost Leafs vs. Titans
What’s with the Titans and low scoring games...haven’t we learned that scoring two or three goals a game may win you regular season games but not many playoff games...five of the seven games the Titans have played have ended with the Titans winning by scores of 2-1 or 3-1 bet the under in their games...Undecided play this one tough with a one goal lead after one...Roberts, Arruda, Petti need support offensively...Calabro, Goncalves brothers and Jordan need to chip in if Titans hope to gain the crown...discipline issues late all but kill a comeback as a selfish penalty puts the Leafs down a man with two minutes left down 2-1...make the final 3-1...another heart breaker for the blue and white...

The Dominating Demons vs. Bastone
The Bastone are now officially the Dr. Jekyll Mr. Hyde team for the GPB...you never know what you’re going to get with these guys...losers of two of their last three the pack is tightening around them ...do you just get that feeling that the Demons will be that underdog team that has the stars all align...the GPB see’s a lot of good signs from the old Pitters...JD is Just Dominating...the ironic part of this run is could the Demons play in the 2 vs. 7 game as the number two seed, they do sit alone in second...

Hitmen vs. Warriors
Still searching for that first win...the Warriors keep playing tough defensive hockey...they hang in there defensively for the majority of the game...no goals still means no wins...the Hitmen score four times and continue to ride there hot streak...Clark is unbeatable...Ricci an all time GPB favourite scores and leads the Hitmen’s charge...the Warriors need to play the trap...all five guys behind the ball and wait for a break or PP...It works...has there been a pointless team in a DP Tier 2 season? ...I need to check the records... .
