Always worth a read, and always poignant.
Have you lost your mind, Topper?
Hmmm not sure what Toppy meant by "poignant"...


From Latin pungō (“prick”).


1.(obsolete, of a weapon etc) sharp-pointed; keen.
1590, Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene, VII:
His siluer shield, now idle maisterlesse; / His poynant speare, that many made to bleed [...].

2.incisive; penetrating
His comments were poignant and witty.

3.neat; eloquent; applicable; relevant
A poignant reply will garner more credence than hours of blown smoke.

4.Evoking strong mental sensation, to the point of distress; emotionally moving
Flipping through his high school yearbook evoked many a poignant memory of yesteryear.

5.(figuratively, of a taste or smell) piquant, pungent

6.(figuratively, of a look, or of words) piercing

7.(dated, mostly British) inducing sharp physical pain

When Keith elbowed Daniel, the Canucks saw an opportunity to rest Henrik and add to the Keith suspension. The Canucks, believe it or not, have pulled the old grade 3 switcharoo. Hear that Chicago hockey media? The worst cheap shot team in history has set a new low (or high?) in faking.

Henrik keeps his streak alive with Daniel playing.
Keith gets what he deserves.
Canucks prep for playoffs.

I'd bet most of the morons in the Blackhawks forum at a certain site would buy into that if it were properly presented.
