    I knew this was an april fools joke. My girlfriend just called me and said she was pregnant. Then she called back like a couple minutes later to say april fools! Then when I logged in on here I was like, no this is an April fools joke obviously….But I checked just in case.

    April Fool's Day should be a national holiday.  Why do we get Labour Day off, but have to work on April fool's?  Is Labor Day any more important?  Of course not.  This is one of many conspiracies initiated by the proletariat and commies.

    I fell for it!

  5. leafy says:

    Haha, you got me!

    Speaking of jokes, if Ottawa loses to Montreal, they'll be dangerously close to missing the playoffs.  Check out the standings, as of 3:30 pm Tuesday.

    GREATEST april fools joke on the fan 590 right now

  11. leafy says:

    It's interesting to note that this article has generated less hits than the article on restricted free agents.

    In other words, there are many who read the title, " to be shut down", then just skipped to the next story.

    I just found that a bit comical.

  12. wingerxxx says:

    lol good one!!!

  13. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    No offense Mick, but Linty's the champ of April Fools. The guy had half the site believing Sundin would be out for the big game between the Leafs and the Habs at the end of last year…. it was pretty hilarious!

  14. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    No, Sundin had a career threatening injury last year! hahaha

  15. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    You watching too? I always loved Mike Toth.

  16. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    he had people calling in crying!!!!!

  17. BruMagnus says:

    I totally agree. I've tried to have such an article submitted for the past day and a half to no success. Here it is:

    Are the Senators still a playoff threat?

    Assuming the Senators squeak into the playoffs, which could be anywhere from 4th to 8th place, are they still even a threat in the playoffs? Many people will look to their experience and past 'success' (especially last year's Final's appearance) as evidence that they are still to be feared. They still have plenty of offensive production, as seen by their 252 goals to date (2nd best in the NHL, just four goals behind Montreal), but their goaltending has been questionable. They are 12th worst in the East, 25th worst in the NHL and worst among all playoff teams for Goals Against. Worse still, their record of late has been appallingly atrocious. They are 1-4-1 in their last six games and have won only 13 of 37 games following a 29-10-4 start.

    Are they really to be feared?

    Since the big Stillman and Commodore trade for Eaves and Corvo, the Sens have never really clicked, while the Canes have gone on one of the best NHL records since that trade.

    Ottawa could hypothetically play any of:
    Carolina (a strong possibility)

    heck, even Philly and Boston have a chance at getting the 4th or 5th seed with Ottawa taking the other spot.

    Which of these teams does Ottawa have the best chance at overcoming in the first round?
    Can they even beat any of these teams?

    Lastly, are you at all afraid to play Ottawa in the 1st round?

    The Penguins got dismantled by the Sens last year, so I'd prefer avoid them and face the Bruins, Flyers and certainly the Caps. But I don't fear the Sens as much as I did even a month ago. This could be dangerous thinking, but it could be pragmatic as well. The Pens would have a lot to prove to themselves and have a lot more weapons and confidence this year than the Sens. They'd also have home ice. Personally, I’d love the Senators to have to face the Devils or Rangers to eliminate one of these powerhouses. What do Sens fans think? Who could they beat in the 1st round? Who would you most like to face in the first round?

    How about the Habs? Do Habs fans think they'd overcome the Sens? Do you even really want to find out?

    PS. I wrote and submitted this article before the Habs vs. Sens game, but have updated the stats since the Habs shutout win.

  18. Radio says:

    Washington to sweep the Habs in the first round.

    Then go on to win the cup.

  19. Radio says:

    Yeah but Leaf fans are more guillable than other fans, cept maybe Habs fans.

    Leaf fans actually believed they would get into the playoffs this year, and Habs fans believe that they will make it out of the first round.

    Those crazy fanatics.

    what is it? details?

  21. BruMagnus says:

    I think the true April Fool's joke here is Archion113 pretending to have a girlfriend. I'm sure you meant boyfriend.

  22. BruMagnus says:

    Give it time. It's a new article.
    Plus, it doesn't have my numerous posts… yet. (But neither did the RFA one)

  23. BruMagnus says:

    Ok Mikster, good joke. Now please post more articles. I know you want this article to be on the top of the site to keep tricking people, but most have seen it now.

  24. leafy says:

    Last year is last year.  If the Pens played Ottawa THIS year, Pittsburgh would win handily.  Instead, IT'S WASHINGTON that Pittsburgh needs to worry about more.

    Don't be fooled by the regular season stats.  They are heavily swayed by games that were played BEFORE Washington's resurgence when they were in the East basement.  Since the New Year, the Caps have one of the best records in the entire league….and probably the best player.  You don't want to play them, believe me.  If they get in the playoffs, look out.

  25. leafy says:

    If the Caps get in, I would not be shocked if they reached the 4th Round.

  26. turdfergusson says:

    Hook, line and sinker.  sigh..

  27. CanadianbornPlaya says:

    You need to get yourself a T V or a Newspaper, I don't think that radio is helping you out much. And while you are at it, take out an advertisement thanking Bob Gainey for setting you guys up with a full time goalie. It is a real testament to the Habs depth. Our players have gotten two teams into the playoffs.
         Seriously, a few more gritty defencemen and Kolzig comitted to the backup position and the Caps will not be struggling to make the playoffs next year. I would love to see Ovechkin in the playoffs.

  28. BruMagnus says:

    Do you mean the 4th Hole? as in Golf?

  29. BruMagnus says:

    Strange, I thought I had posted a reply to this before.

    The caps do not scare me. They lack depth. The Pens matchup extremely well with them and are better in every single position.

  30. Lint07 says:

    …and the year before that it was Belfour.

    I love picking on Leafs fans on April Fools day 😉

    I figured you guys deserved a break this year.

  31. Lint07 says:

    hehe thanks. Don't forget about my Belfour injured story the year before that! 😉

    I figured you guys deserved a break this year 😉

  32. Archion113 says:

    I got banned for calling you a homo… the fact that you're calling me one should be looked at.

    But just like the officiating in hockey.. unless you're from philly nothing will happen.. and of course i'm from philly…

  33. BruMagnus says:

    I never called you that. I would never use those words because one of my best friend's is gay. There's absolutely nothing wrong with having a boyfriend. The problem is when you slander or discriminate against an entire race of people, sex of people, or someone based on their sexual orientation. BIG DIFFERENCE.

    Your last part was funny, though.

  34. Archion113 says:

    I knew you were gay…
