Brendan Shanahan on TSN 990, takes some shots at Pacioretty


  1. JIMVINNY says:

    One problem with having a great goalie is that guys like Cammy assume he’s going to make the save, and DON”T PICK UP THE TRAILER!!!!

  2. slychard says:

    That one’s on Price

    Kiss my hAbSS!!!

    This would be easier to swallow if Price was having a bad game…

  8. Captain aHab says:

    Goddamn….now we’re going to have to watch OT

  9. t1tan5 says:

    Desharnais had a great game offensively, but WHY THE HELL IS HE ON IN THIS SITUATION??

  10. Mattyleg says:

    I knew it.

  11. smiler2729 says:

    Saw that coming

  12. win4ce says:

    I guess no sleep tonight

  13. roady says:

    can it be…no

    take your drink to the end of the bar buddy…come on now, don’t be a fool…

  14. Natty-Dread says:

    Cole is a beast…gets leveled and then still takes the puck up ice. Not bad…

  15. Timo says:

    You know who I miss? Gui! Gui! wouldn’t stand up for this crap.

  16. JIMVINNY says:

    Well that looked bad. but only winded, it appears.

  17. Chuck says:

    4 minutes, boys!

  18. Captain aHab says:

    I’m sure the refs have gotten the call from Toranna by now telling them they need to call a penalty on the Habs.

    $10 Markov gets injured Saturday in LA

  20. slychard says:

    what no call on that ice shower?

    Kiss my hAbSS!!!

  21. JIMVINNY says:

    Remember when PK got a penalty for a snow shower exactly like that one? Good thing they didn’t give us a PP for it.

  22. Timo says:

    LOL. Diaz and Emelin clean snow off Price. B!tches.

  23. Rad says:

    The Great Darche arrives! late in the 3rd!

  24. bighabber says:

    Can anyone explain why Weber is out there after each time we’ve taken the lead in this game. I don’t get the Weber love.

  25. AndyF says:

    Shanahan is completely full of crap. To use the case of Gionta’s collision with Reimer as an example of league impartiality is ridiculous; Gionta didn’t even come close to hitting Reimer with an elbow. To claim that Shanahan cut Gionta any slack is a farce.

    Shanahan is Colin Campbell’s employee, plain and simple. And he continues on, perhaps in a more articulate and web-savvy way, in the crony tradition set forth by Campbell.

    Pacioretty is right — they’ve now created a Rube Goldberg machine, where players have no way to know the outcome of their hits. Unless they’re from Boston, of course, where the League is trying to manufacture the next great dynasty. If you’re from Boston — home of Colin Campbell’s kid — then you know you’ll get nothing for trying to kill a player. You can even lie afterwards that you didn’t even know who it was you were trying to kill. No problem in the NHL. Evidently, it’s going to take more than that to insult the intelligence of the head office guys in this league.

    The NHL is first and foremost, a business. A business with all the drunkenness, and nepotism of the people who run it. You don’t need a license to run an NHL franchise. You just need money, or at the very least, credit.

    What a complete mess!

  26. thirdstone says:

    Price always makes a glove save without a stick against SJ… weird

  27. Captain aHab says:


  28. idle says:

    When DD came up did anyone expect this kind of play from him? Was it considered a possibility?

    I can think of many players who fans/media thought would make a big impact, who wound up being a bust but I can’t think of too many who have been real pleasant surprises. Maybe Gorges is a good example…

  29. Feraco says:


    Nice glove

  30. Timo says:

    Defensive shell!!! Defensive shell!!!

  31. Clutch10 says:

    Those little guys allways eat Thorton up remember how
    Koivu gave him fits.

  32. Feraco says:

    Kostitsyn gets smacked around after every play! Someone help him out!

  33. J.Ambrose.OBrien says:

    DD better stop playing so well or else a lot of posters here are going to be gorging on crow.

  34. Sotxhabsfan says:

    DD and Cole vying for the first star tonight, I believe.

  35. Leblanc and Eller – WOW!

    Leblanc is definitely the best forward called up from the AHL. Much better than Palushaj. And much younger too.

  36. habsguy says:

    a juicy little play, I’ve heard it all now !!!!!

  37. Timo says:

    Eller really needs to learn how to score. Come on, man.

  38. Trisomy 21 says:

    Put Weber on!!

  39. win4ce says:

    DD out-muscles big Joe? Am I that tired?

  40. t1tan5 says:

    Let’s hold this lead for a bit longer, shall we?

  41. Flobomb12 says:

    I love DD!!! Id have him as my top center on this team right now!!! whooooo

  42. roady says:

    DD Cammy Cole

    take your drink to the end of the bar buddy…come on now, don’t be a fool…

  43. slychard says:

    Shark goal soon to come

    Kiss my hAbSS!!!

  44. Habsolutely says:

    DD and Cole kickin butt tonight.

  45. patience is a virtue says:

    Emelin did not get “eaten up”. Yes, he gave it away, but he also made braking up the Shark’s cycle look like child’s play, and he played tough down low that shift.

    He is really impressing me as time goes on.

  46. showey47 says:


  47. Captain aHab says:

    Man DD plays sweet.

  48. durocher says:

    DD returns the favor to Cole!

  49. Mattyleg says:

  50. habstrinifan says:

    If Markov comes back and we play this chip-out and hang on style HE’S gonna be hurt again. Too hard on the defense.

  51. Mattyleg says:

    Shame about those two giveaways, Yemmy’s been playing great hockey.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  52. slychard says:

    I love Emelin but he has a nasty habit of soft passes like he’s scared to rush the puck up zone

    Kiss my hAbSS!!!

  53. t1tan5 says:

    Emelin’s done for the night with those two errors, I would have to believe.

  54. Rad says:

    Emelin is tough … great addition to the midget Hab team

  55. Niemi is not a good goalie. His rebound control is atrocious.

  56. hansolo says:

    Obviously hockey has changed a lot over the years, but I’m surprised to see the Habs D, and Price just now, pass the puck in front of Montreal net rather than off to the boards. They’ve done that several times this game and it’s a paradigm shift for me. Bowman would have had conniption fits about the number of times they’ve done that.

  57. Sotxhabsfan says:

    Getting tired of hearing the Sharks announcers talk about french. Can they just give play-by-play?

  58. AceMagnum says:

    It’s goddam amateur hour on TSN 990 who is that a-hole Simon Souvlaki?? He know spit about hockey and music

  59. Captain aHab says:

    We haven’t had our usual Too many men penalty yet.

  60. doogie says:

    Eller is good, hope he can learn to score the puck.

  61. habstrinifan says:

    Max Pacs better be a saint when he comes back. Sheriff Shanny is gonna throw the book at him for the slightest foul. Max Pac caalled him out!

  62. smiler2729 says:

    Wow, just got home from making crappy cars all night and it’s actually a tie game, I was expecting the Habs to be behind… so if San Jose wins do the Sharks fire McLellan?

    Is Allan Walsh a twit or what?

    I gotta be up at 5 am to go make crappy cars again… I wish I were a hockey player.

    Jack Edwards sucks chowdah chunks

  63. Rad says:

    Emelin on the right point. They may be readying him to play on Markov’s right side.

  64. Clay says:

    It’s not like they played hockey last night, Boone. I’m not sure what to call what they did last night…

  65. slychard says:

    wanna see Leblanc score, I like his spunk so far…ohhhh DD

    Kiss my hAbSS!!!
