    we are two 20 goal scores or Three 15 goal scores Plus tweek the “D” to cut back 30-35 goals against. fix that over the summer – no need to blow up the team and we’ll be ok for 2012-2013 playoffs.

    …Mike Boone: “I guess no one is allowed to hit Jagr, eh? Gorges gave away inches and pounds to Kubina. That should be addressed.”
    …this is WHAT ??? gets Me about the pacifist and anti-fighting crowd …and I am not only talking about Boone and His sly digs condescending the role of ‘fighters’ and ‘fighting’ in the NHL
    …I Myself bemoan the one-dimensional ‘goons’, but these are examples when even the pacifists look for physicality and push-back
    …if Your Team does not possess potential to ‘give’ as well as ‘take’, just be certain Life will be miserable …You WILL be pushed-around, intimidated and look pathetic
    …that is Life, no matter Our well-intentioned ideals

      Personally, I think Price is a good goalie, but would rather have kept ‘he who shall remain nameless’. But I also got over it, and am looking to the future – which I hope includes Price

    …Mike Boone: “Again Cherry is all over the Leafs for Kadri.”
    …I’m enjoying this power-play between Cherry and Brian Burke
    …and, for once in a Lifetime, I’m pulling for Cherry :)

    this sounds crazy but i am almost relieved they are knocked out. For some weird reason i thought they could squeak ini know i know i was delusional but hey im only human. judging by tonight’s game we dont have the quality players to keep up with the big boys at the moment. could be due to a few injuries but i think im not crazy when i say we need some more talent, especially on d. montreal playoff hockey is all i look forward too in the spring time and it cuts like a knife not being able to take part in that, as it is a family tradition almost like a religion to be glued to the tv watching. anyways thank you guys everyone on this site whether negative or not because i know what its like being a habs fan and ill be the first to admit that at one second i can be a negative nelly and a second later i can be so happy and optimistic about the team. anyways this year is over but there are very good points like having 2 thirty goal scorers i cant remember the last time we had that happen. i spend more time on this website (not actually posting but reading ) than any other website , here is to the good times and to the bad times like tonight, cheers (as i take a drink to my vodka and coke) hopefully next year and in the future years we have nothing but positives to talk about.

  7. JUST ME says:

    So we can officially shed a tear tonight . Even though our faith was sealed a while ago.
    Cannot be much worst next year injury wise .
    The youngsters learned a lot this season and a few changes here and there should do the job.
    Bring me Cole`s twin brother and we`ll be o.k.
    Bye bye P.G.
    We did not have what it takes although everything that could go wrong did…

  8. The Dude says:

    LOL we were eliminated in the pre-season …

  9. Adidess says:

    What, we are eliminated!!!?

    Phew! We’re still talking about this year…

  10. Habzfan says:

    Should have had Price in tonight!

  11. Say Ash says:

    Friggin Florida has a 5-goal worse differential than us and they’re in third place. Total bullcrap.

  12. Nitroslices says:

    A stubble jumping Sasquatch that scored 35 goals and counting.

  13. habstrinifan says:

    goodnight boys and girls.

  14. habstrinifan says:

    Don’t buy your popcorn from Giant Tiger discount brand . YUCK. It’s gonna be a two-roll night (double ply please) … i think.

    Least the spice rum tasted good.

  15. habstrinifan says:

    Let’s be kind to the team. Was a Fun Friday.. today is Tank Saturday. Look at the bigger picture.

  16. habstrinifan says:

    Tough night for Habs and Boone!

    Thanks Boone for sticking right thru the end.. Lousy game.

  17. Clay says:

    How about Ottawa coming back from a bad loss to stomp the Pens? Impressive!!
    And the Leafs get a valuable point (for us, that is) – good stuff. :)

      Pens outshot the Sens 40-28.

      Pens had their third string goalie starting his fourth career NHL game.


      Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

      • Clay says:

        Wow – thanks for the update. I just saw the score, but that info definitely changes my perception.

    …Winnipeg loses to Nashville :( …Ottawa 8 ! Pens 4 oufff ! …and We pick-up a point on the Weeds :)

  19. CHicoHab says:

    Nice field goal Khadri!! That’s why he’s in the minors Cherry!!!

  20. danhabsfan says:

    On the rare time I cheer for the Leafs, they blow it

  21. Habbu says:

    And Kubina gets away with it……..I guess they decided that the stern talking to was enough.

  22. Psycho29 says:

    @Habitant in Surrey:
    I’m not sure what address my uncle lived at on Ridgewood, I’ll have to ask my brother if he remembers. My uncle’s name was Tom Dovolos….

  23. Dust says:

    oh god i’m cheering for the leafs to win.. ugh this season sucks

  24. smiler2729 says:

    If Mathieu Darche’s return means one of White, Staubitz or Blunden sits then I hope Darche is nailed to the pressbox.

    …to anyOne thinking if Carey was in nets tonight the score would be different … I say nuts !
    …Budaj has been solid

  26. novahab says:

    OOORoy ,OOORoy OOORoy OORoy OOORoy OOORoy

  27. HabinBurlington says:

    Looks like leafs in shootout again tonight.

  28. 69HABS says:

    PK & White, WTF?

  29. novahab says:

    Roy when you take over the team pleasssssssssssse do passing drills till they throw up. Then after that make them do more and more and more. Then when they think that’s enough another week of just passsing drills.

  30. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …ole ole ? …Philthydelphia Phlyer phans are ALMOST as insufferable as Habs’ Fans ;)

  31. Habbu says:

    Can’t even make a pass off the rush……….

  32. L Elle says:

    At least we killed Ottawa.

  33. danhabsfan says:

    Boone… not sure if they are the better team, but they are the better PP team

  34. punkster says:

    Habs PP…pass, pass, pass, big wind up fake a shot, pass, pass, big wind up shot deflected wide/into goalie’s chest, opposition clears the zone.

    Bourque on the rush…carry puck 2 strides, pass, skate one stride, receive pass, float a shot to the corner, skate off.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  35. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …lots of likeable Players on Our Team, but We really need to find some who can actually put a puck in a net

  36. 69HABS says:

    Not so much Bryz is on fire. Habs can’t shoot tonight!

  37. smiler2729 says:

    Rene “Cottonelle” Bourque… soft toilet paper.

  38. Wayne says:

    Our PP looks more like a penalty kill. SHOOT for crissakes!

  39. JIMVINNY says:

    Bryz covered that outside the trapezoid. There should have been another penalty there.

  40. 69HABS says:

    Loose the slapper PK, U take all night to wind up!

  41. Wayne says:

    It’s a 5 on 3 and where’s Desharnais? Off-screen in the corner where he can scoop in a rebound?

  42. Habitant in Surrey says:

    Wow …typing a comment on an iPod makes Me look like I flunked Englisg grammar, eh ? Haha

  43. Dust says:

    put pleks out there for the pp. he is playing better than DD tonight

  44. Bertuzzi says:

    What a creative power play.

  45. Adidess says:

    Anybody else feels their heart almost stopped when Markov got tripped there?

  46. L Elle says:

    Im chillin to Frampton.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7rFYbMhcG8

    I wonder what markov said to Bryz. Apparently there are 100 ways to say f u in Russian.

  47. Wayne says:

    Markov to Bryz: “Da, Da,.. you treep me”

  48. shootdapuck says:

    Boone, obnoxious is a compliment to these Phillistines!

    Ignorant would be a better description!

  49. JIMVINNY says:

    Total BS that White got the only roughing. Simmons should have had the elusive triple minor.

  50. Mark C says:

    Haha, love the Philly announcers, all over Emelin for a dive, yet not a word about Rinaldo’s dive.

  51. Dust says:

    5 on 3, Subban will score

  52. Habitant in Surrey says:

    Wow …using this iPod to type comments sure makes Me look like I flunked English grammar :)

  53. Habitant in Surrey says:

    We can match up physically with 30 to 40 % of NHL teams against most NHL teams …it’s these type (Flyers, Bruins, Blues, etc etc) that We realize Our Team still must get bigger

  54. novahab says:

    It’s easy to see the vets has mail this it but the young players please enjoy the AHL. The younger players, you have this shot to prove something and you all failed very very poorly. If I was a young player this is my game. I be going like a bat out of hell every second on the ice. Looks like we ll have the same line up next year if the leadership goes by their effort. I am very disappointed in these nothing games that not one young player has taken this op to prove something.

    • Dust says:

      i wouldn’t say the vets have mailed it in. Cole hasn’t. George hasn’t. pleks is playing well tonight.. What vet has mailed it in?

      • novahab says:

        Give me a break just because you skake evey 3rd or forth shift a bit. Their powerplay is just a joke there is very little effort there. Pleks has mail this season in before the trade deadline.

        • danhabsfan says:

          The PP has been horrible all year, it won’t change now. (Muller I think was the reason for good PP in the past few years). Some vets have not mailed it in (see above comments)… our young guys are not good enough. We need a new GM to make good tough choices in the off season.

  55. jo_maka says:

    AK is a better player than Cheech Ma–I mean Bourque

  56. Dust says:

    come on isle score force ot. get that loser point

  57. Mark C says:

    Great, all the teams we want to win have blown their leads/ties in the past 10 minutes or so.

  58. Mark C says:

    World class dive. That’s how you can tell it’s an Olympic year!

  59. Wayne says:

    Rinaldo with a soccer dive! Co-in-ki-dink? I think not.

  60. shootdapuck says:

    Pyatt has 11 goals?

    Under JM that wouldn’t be allowed in less than 10 seasons.

  61. Habbu says:

    Bourque reminds me of AK46; in & out of consciousness.

  62. The Dude says:

    It ‘s games like this that show how out classed our Habs are…

  63. jo_maka says:

    So, the Sens are spanking that penguin, huh? Good for them.

  64. pmaraw says:

    ^^^^ this guy

  65. L Elle says:

    Only seven months left to the next season. :( ;)

  66. So much for Kostitsyn thriving in Nashville.. He’s been firing blanks.

  67. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …excuse doubling …using iPod to post …can not see if post got though immediately

  68. Dust says:

    on a different note. if you are a rum drinker i strongly suggest “The kracken” it’s delicious

  69. Habitant in Surrey says:

    If I’m white or staubitz, I’m booking ‘a dance’ with Kubina before this over :)

  70. alwayssunny says:

    Pleky is on fire tonight. Showing a lot of fire. He really knows when to turn it on.

  71. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …if I’m staubitz or white ? …I’m booking ‘a dance’ with Kubina before the this game is over …nobody touches the heart of this Tesm, Josh Gorges !

  72. The Dude says:

    Gorges …$ 3.9 million fist blocker

  73. shootdapuck says:

    Hartnell, a stubble jumping Sasquatch !
