The Claude Noel Lozenge Thread

Okay, so here we are and apparently there is an elephant in the room. Claude Noel and Lozenges. For those of you that are unaware, Claude Noel likes.. err.. no, loves Lozenges or some form of unidentified suck candy. You will notice in near EVERY pre-game interview, some regular day-to-day interviews, post game interviews, etc.. Claude Noel is sucking on some form of candy or lozenge or perhaps referred to as U.S.C.- Unidentified Suck Candy. We do not know exactly what type of candy this may be, or if he just sucks on his gum, but for right now we're sticking to it being a Lozenge because it sounds cool and fun to say.

Everyone interested should be aware that our very own WpgMikos from Illegal Curve was possibly going to look into what form of candy this may be at this mornings skate. We are currently awaiting some form of update from WpgMikos. If we do not get a definitive answer, we will carry on and assume it is some form of a Lozenge. Or, for those of you who are not content with referring to it as a "Lozenge", feel free to use the term U.S.C (Unidentified Suck Candy), or any term you would like to refer to it as.

We didn't expect something like this to take this place by storm, but here we are, so we'll deal with it. Feel free to discuss Lozenges here. Just remember to take it all in, this could be something epic that we can all look back on and think... (In the ever so often words of Claude Noel himself...) "This is all really good stuff".

Enjoy.


Skip to the 12:35 mark, everyone. Enjoy.





Oh, and I found these beauties in the main boards thread regarding Noel and his Lozenges.


Definitely a winner, both of them.

Noel likes lozenges. Particularly at 12:35. There's not much else to get.

Now are we sure they are lozenges and not just some regular candy.

Perhaps he's enjoying a Werther's original?

Nonsense. Werther's can't give you the Claude Noel pucker look. That look puts Zoolander's "blue steel" to shame.

True.

However I've enjoyed a Werther's or 2 in my day and I know my face gets the serious inward cheeks look as I try to get every bit of flavor out of those bad boys. And, I keep trying to stress this but too many lozenges will give you a serious case of the runs.

Trust me I'm hoping they're lozenges as much as everyone as I enjoy the word 'lozenge', but we have to open our minds to other possible candy as the man would be seen constantly running to the bathroom during games on lozenge overdose.

For anyone unaware of how we got here, or how we got to this point, please direct yourself to the first post of the thread. It is explained there.

I'm not going to jump to any immediate conclusions as Noel very well may be sucking on his gum here, but we cannot rule out that it is a Lozenge. So therefore, this video/interview shall be added to the thread.

One thing is for sure, there is something in there and only Claude Noel knows what the hell it is.

For the home opener, on CBC when they were showing the Jets lining up before they went out for the warm up, Noel was also in the background brushing his teeth.

Perhaps he has a Seinfeld-esque "dead tooth" that affects his breath? If so, I'd lean towards spearmint or peppermint lozenges.

That is actually some pretty interesting information.

Uhh... does this have the makings or feel to it of some sort of supportive cult? I'm just curious if anyone else feels that way.

I just checked Claude out on wikipedia and it failed to even mention the lozenging. Stupid wikipedia. Years as a coach - check. Years as an NHL coah - got it. LPG stats ---nowhere to be found.

Jets fans, I'm quite pleased other people have noticed the lozenges too, since your first 3 games were national telecasts I was able to watch them and noticed Noel and his lozenges in every one.

Heres a link to the Phoenix game:

http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockeynight...#id=2154408178

You can clearly see the lozenge inserted at 11:50 of the video. The only bad thing is CBC makes you watch a commercial before watching the broadcast

Heres a link to the original thread incase Jets fans are confused about how this all got started:

http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=1007305

I liked the Jets by default because they are a Canadian team but thanks to Claude Noel and his lozenges I am much more interested in how this team does

Oh my god, I almost fell out of my chair laughing at work.

We now need an "LPG" stat in every GDT. I wonder if NHL.com can track this if enough people contact them.

Hate to disappoint you guys but I didn't get a chance to ask the coach the question today after practice (got distracted with my GST Line post). I will still inquire and try and get to the bottom of this mystery.

It's silent at work so I'm trying not to laugh, but you guys are making it so ridiculously hard.
