And a brawl.

They may be in first place, but Boston is the Habs’ bitches


  1. Willy the bum says:

    Forget Habs-Leafs rivals, the millenium is for the Habs-Bruins.  Exciting rivals of our times now.

  2. StevieRay says:

    I wonder if Marchand will keep his head up tonite when PK on the ice .

  3. Landof10000lakesHab says:

    why read and feed this troll?

  4. 24 Cups says:

    Thomas gets the start for the Bruins while Horton is doubtful.  If he can’t go, Ryder will probably take his place on the top line.

  5. Landof10000lakesHab says:

    Why feed the troll ?

  6. hab_skill says:

    No thank you, would much rather someone with speed if they cost that much.

  7. sidhu says:

    Eager got 4 games from Bettman, but this from everyone outside of Toronto:

    I wonder what Cherry will have to say about good ol’ Canadian boys like Eager and Kostopolous taking nasty shots against vulnerable guys.

  8. Ian Cobb says:

    Danno, thanks for the tape link,–Day glow hockey tape .  If they put a CH of this tape, in the middle of all their sticks, there would be no excuse for putting the pass into feet.

  9. Bouleau noir says:

    …..per eklund hahaha

  10. Bouleau noir says:

    ….per eklund hahaha

  11. scrowe21 says:

    Agreed..but White is not as good as Lapierre…and has been playing pretty bad in the AHL, even before his injury.

  12. Danno says:

    I think you’re on to something Ian. Day glow hockey tape should do the trick.

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  13. Ian Cobb says:

    Chuck! nice little article, but what if they just paint a hunter orange CH, in the middle of all the players blade of the sticks to aim at. Should be able to pick it up pretty slick and hit it with the pass.!

  14. Hockey Socks says:

    You know, if Arnott can play the wing, he wouldn’t be a terrible addition. I can envision a Holmstrom-type role for him on the PP.

  15. TripleX says:

    You never publicly call out a team mate dude.  We have no idea what Crosby feels about the hit and Cooke personally.

    This is pretty much the rule in team sports.  Not saying it is right but that is the way it is.  Crosby may very well have talked to Cooke privately.

  16. Ian Cobb says:

    Request please.!

    Andree and I are heading
    to Brossard Monday, to play around Mtl. for a week or so. We are going
    to the Pittsburgh game on the 12th. 

    Does anyone know if there are any out door rinks around St. Lambert or Brossard so we can skate.?

    In the 60’s, St. Lambert had about 7.  I use to make ice and take care of the chalet for 4 winters.

    I have been gone a long time, I do not know if they still have them.??

    Anyone live around there.??


    PS. –Is there skating on Beaver lake on the mountain.??

  17. Chuck says:

    No worries about tonight, folks! The Habs have the answer:

    Centre Hice: Habs’ new training aid gets a “passing” grade

  18. Josh says:

    Why do people still read Eklund?

  19. showey47 says:

    38 years ago today larry robinson played his first game as a hab. Two years before that with the kitchener rangers,he was moved from center to defence.

  20. Josh says:

    Ben Eager is my hero.

  21. HABSIN09 says:

    Not happening (e5)

    Eklund sucks (e6)

  22. mrhabby says:

    lol…anything is possible.

  23. likehoy says:

    so he’ll end up with NYI?

    - Gomez is holding down the suck button

  24. mrhabby says:

    Jason Arnott to Habs…per Eklund(e4)

  25. Rugger says:

    I find it extremely disengenious (spelling?) of Sid to talk about head shots.  Is he not captain of the Pens?  Has he called out Cooke for his head shots?  They all seem to love him on the Pens.

  26. likehoy says:

    Maybe he’ll pull a stamkos

    watch the game from upstairs for a few games

    then come down and become a better player

  27. TripleX says:

    Since “tank” had nothing to do with the original thread sir.  I feel it is you who have trouble following the lead.

    But then again that is understandable, since you never lead a thread, only contribute semi witty bon mots to what others have contributed.

    What do you really think about the Habs?  Of course making that known invites critical responses.  Better to sit on the sidelines.  Eh?

  28. HABSIN09 says:

    I agree.  Eller should go and play 20 minutes a game and light up the AHL for a bit.  Look what it did for Pacioretty.  He had zero confidence and didn’t look good at all before they sent him down, and now he looks like a completely different, NHL ready player.  Bringing up Ryan White would at least at some toughness to the team, and fill the “void” left by Lapierre.

  29. TripleX says:


    Oh really?  You are certain this team is better without these players?

    Punkster, you really do yourself a disservice wasting your valuable insights on HIO, when it would be better served in some NHL management position.

    G&G made the decisions to dump these aforementioned players so it is a certainty it was correct?  Here I thought only God was infallible.

  30. HUDSONHAB says:

    I do like Eller, he just needs to find some finish, I also like what I’ve seen of White.

    White might bring in some bang but it is moot if we don’t get the offence going on a regular basis.


  31. punkster says:

    Better off without them, that’s certain.


  32. punkster says:

    (sigh) You can’t even follow the conversation TX.


  33. avatar_58 says:

    Nag is right, all you do is nag nag nag about the same thing

  34. TripleX says:

    Some are easy to please.

    You would make a great Leafs fan.  Although I suppose when you set your sights so low it is difficult to ever be disappointed.

    There are still a few Hab’s fans that do demand a bit more.

  35. TripleX says:

    Which team Punkster?

    The Leafs after half the season have only 4 more losses than the vaunted Habs.

    Yet the Leafs are a poorly run franchise and the butt of jokes by the majority of HIO posters.  And the Habs?  Oh the Habs are on the cusp of greatness by the hands of G&G.

    4 more losses!

    It seems the measure of greatness has taken a big tumble since the days of Bowman and Pollack.

    Tanking?  G&G may do it inadvertently.  LOL
