Off-season opens up a lot of free time. Some fans may take up knitting or join a book club. I love the movies, and since I am such a movie buff, I thought I would bring the following films to your attention. Did you know our many of our Canes had roles in famous flicks?

The Godfather

[Joni Pitkanen brings in Buffalo Sabres jersey, delivered with a fish folded inside]

Eric Staal: What the hell is this?
Tuomo Ruutu: It’s a Finnish message. It means the Sabres sleeps with the fishes.


Pulp Fiction

[Tim Gleason to Jamie McBain]

Gleason: I do believe Jim Rutherford, my GM, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.


Star Wars

[Bryan Allen to Kyle Lawson]

Allen: Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?

[Brind’Amour to Maurice about Skinner]

Brind’Amour: The Force is strong with this one.


It’s a Wonderful Life

[As he applies Rogaine, Mattias Lindstrom says to Justin Faulk]

Lindstrom: Ohh, there must be some easier way for me to get my wings.


[Justin Soryal to Zac Dalpe after Jerome Samson goal]

Justin Soryal: Look, Dalpe. Rosey says, every time Ric Flair WOOs a forward gets his wings.

Zac Dalpe: That’s right, that’s right.

Dalpe: Attaboy, Jerome.


Forrest Gump

Zach Boychuk: Can I skate with your line?

[Eric Staal turns and looks at him]

Boychuk: I’d make a good winger, Staalsy.

Staal: You would, Boychuk.

Boychuk:…But you won’t play with me.

Staal: [sadly] … You don’t wanna play with me.

Boychuk: Why don’t you love me, Staalsy?

[Staal says nothing]

Boychuk: I’m not a smart man… but I know what love is.


Austin Powers

Anthony Stewart: Actually, my name is Anthony Stewart. Danger is my middle name.


Dumb and Dumber

[Michael Murphy killing time with roomie Michal Jordan]

Murphy: You’re it.
MJ: You’re it.
Murph: You’re it, quitsies!
MJ: Anti-quitsies, you’re it, quitsies, no anti-quitsies, no startsies!
Murph: You can’t do that!
MJ: Can too!
Murph: Cannot, stamp it!
MJ: Can too, double stamp it, no erasies!
Murph: Cannot, triple stamp, no erasies, Touch blue make it true.
MJ: No, you can’t do that… you can’t triple stamp a double stamp, you can’t triple stamp a double stamp! Murph!
Murph: [hands over ears] LA LA LA LA LA LA!
