    I would be SO happy if we got Peckham. 

  2. Lafrich says:

    How about the Hansons?

  3. HAB-PROFESSOR says:

    is it possible to have LAROCK ready for MARCH 8th?… i figure if we insert LAROCK/HENRY/WHITE/MOEN and SHULTZ we’ll be able to create enough policing and freedom for our speedy talent.

    Larock is still under contract, i don’t see an issue, his role would be to dismantle both LUCIC and CHARA. it must be done…those two neanderthals need a bloody UFC style beating.

    1:The N.A.G.S. (North American Grit Speed) Youth Movement will bring us respect. 2: 02/09/11…never forget 3. up WHITE/SHULTZ/PAX now.

  4. Top Corner says:

    3-1 on the season-We own those bicchhizz , last night was a a gong show….but a massacre , hardly

    The thing is,  NO team would get away with this night after night – the NHL would be all over it, and no team could physically be able to handle playing that type of game more than once a year.  Those games are rare….. Last night has everyone ruffled in some way….i hardly slept for a while…HA!  But you know what…..brains over brawn…..Our HABS answered every goal (again like said earlier-untill it wasnt a game anymore) and next game they will win.  If anything this is going to make the bond stronger in the room. 

    You have a point , we have all said that they need some size up front since last seasons changes , but with our injuries on the D…..plans change.  Now we need a Dman AND a top 6 forward type player….give it time.  I dont ever want a don cherrish type team…..EVER!

  5. ClaytonM says:

    Anyone remember Petr Svoboda? He wasn’t a fighter, just an average sized skilled player. What used to happen when forwards would take runs at him? They’d be picking chips of Svoboda’s stick out of their teeth, that’s what. If Boston, Philly, any NHL team wants to goon it up against the Habs, they should be prepared to miss some games due to injury. Sure, if Subban, Hamrlik, Weber or Spacek do the same, they’ll be missing some ice time, get some major penalties or even suspensions.

    But I remember Svoboda and his mentor Chelios didn’t have as many runs taken at them after their first couple of seasons.

  6. Hammer says:

    From today’s Dreger reprt. never have truer words been spoken.

    “When motivated as they were last night, few teams can measure up to the Bruins’ physical assets, but sources say the worry now in Montreal is that the book is out on this team and all rivals now have a clear understanding of one of the Canadiens’ most glaring weaknesses.”


    Call up the troops or bring back the Hanson brothers!!!! or maybe someone can wipe the smirks off of AK46 and #11 and send them out as cannon fodder.

  7. PeterD says:

    Expendable players/assets = EVERYONE except
    – Price, PK Subban, Pleks, and MaxPac.

  8. PeterD says:

    Last thing we need is to goon-up our team.

    What we need is some scoring size, shutdown D size and performance form everyone.

    I am done with the likes of Gomez and AKost – they are dead to me as a fan.

    My love of the Habs goes back to the 1960’s and I have NEVER seen two players with so little heart and caring for la Sainte Flanelle.

    No player is more impotant that the Sweater they wear and if they repeatedly demonstrate a lack of respect for that, then get them off the bench and out of the room.

    There are options for getting Gomez gone – waive him and send to the minors (then he is off the cap), Trade him for a bag of pucks (then he’s off the cap), Demote to Hamilton and if picked up on recall waivers, then we pick only half his salary (half off the cap).

    I don’t care anymore, he is a weak and aging asset that just does not have enough respect for hte team and is putting too many limitations on what the team can do going forward.

    Some people will say that demoting him will send a bad message to other UFA’s and they won’t want to come here.  SO WHAT!  Do we want overpaid UFA’s lining up to come here so they can sit and not perform?  UFA’s are not how you build a franchise.  You do that by having a solid atmosphere in the room and drafting and developing players that want to be here.

  9. HabFanSince72 says:

    all rivals now have a clear understanding of one of the Canadiens’ most glaring weaknesses.”

    The Gomez line? Surely everybody already knew that.


  10. scrowe21 says:

    Has anyone ever seen Matt Kassian play? He has only played 4 games for Minnesota.. but he’s huge and has had some pretty good fights in the AHL. Montreal could get him for dirt cheap I would assume.. or is he too brutal defensively to even consider?

    Love the way he uses the jab and throws the big rights. He could ragdoll a lot of people I think.

  11. JasonM says:



    What the hell.

  12. mrhabby says:

    iam sure fisher put a bug in some ones ear about  where to go…since the caps decided to blow it up.

    yup to hotties.

  13. mrhabby says:

    Larock is totally out of shape.Saw a pic of him on TV. He has put on some big weight. its just not realistic at all.

  14. joeybarrie says:

    Did you just say Gomez is a big body?

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

  15. puroman77 says:

    Hey Boone check out this blogger some interesting stuff in his blog 

  16. Propwash says:

    LOL. I was wondering about that.

  17. HAB-PROFESSOR says:

    actually i think it was a glaring MARTIN mistake to not re-insert GOMEZ and AK once the battles started… they are veteran players, big bodies and command respect more than a pyatt or halpern… sure bench them for a shift or 2, but then get them back on the ice to redeem themselves, and diffuse that masacre.

    don’t try to place the blame on GOMEY or AK… its the lineup and management created it.

  18. Propwash says:

    Wewt! Scored a couple of tix to the game tonight!

  19. Wayne says:

    When does Rypien get out of anger management school?

  20. Habnofear says:

    I would keep Desharnais aswell

  21. geo_habsgo says:

    Does anyone know how cheap scalpers tend to go on prices for tickets after the puck drops? Looking into going tonight.

  22. scrowe21 says:

    LOL. Laraque is retired and his contract was bought out. You think he’ll come back for one game?

    Henry I wouldn’t mind. White isn’t gunna win many fights.. Schultz is awful.

  23. avatar_58 says:

    What weakness is that? Catch Price in an off-game? Get fighting majors for 60 mins?

    The sensationalism going on today is hilarious

  24. HabFanSince72 says:

    Forget Peckham, we need Jon “Nasty” Mirasty.

    That guy is like 5’6″ in skates, and fought Boogaard three times.

  25. Rudy says:

    Are the refs scheduled for the season in advance? Wonder who the refs will be for the March 8th game.

    “Start the season with a clean equipment bag and a freah bucket of febreze!”-CharlieHodgeFan

  26. matrags says:

    sorry boone cant agree with you that tonight s game is anti climatic. In fact if we had beaten the Islanders and the Leafs  here on Saturday, last nights game would have been another game. We are supposed to beat those teams and we have given up six points to them so far this yr . Six pts would have made last night just a game. We would be in first place in the division, and in striking distance of the eastern conference lead. tonights game is critical , for the two points , to get back to winning and to set up the team for a tough game saturday.After a loss the night before , the next game is allways bigger.

  27. Chuck says:

    Well, at least you’re not arguing with yourself. THEN I’d be worried.  :)

  28. HAB-PROFESSOR says:

    sometimes its the actions before the fight that are crucial, don’t you notice that when a goon sees its MOEN then he thinks twice before fighting, but if he sees Pyatt, then its an easy fight.  I appreciate the toughness that Pouliot has shown, he has fought a few times and has never lost, kid is big and tough.

    as for Larock, its a joke, but we need ‘something’ special for March 8th.

  29. HAB-PROFESSOR says:

    not easy when your hearing footsteps, or eating the splinters of a stick cracked over your face, or being hit relentlessly by an armour elbow pad till your bleeding profusely…or your netminder being crosschecked across his head… but no problem, through all that (which is nothing according to you) we’ll just score more goals!

    sure Pleks or Deshar can skate in between their legs and squeak the puck in the net!!!

    Lord help the Habs….please

  30. HAB-PROFESSOR says:

    we can lose… but we must not be beaten to pulps.

  31. Rugger says:

    Yes, let’s go out and rebuild the Habs along the Flyers-Bruins mold because that has been so successful at winning cups over the last 35 years.

  32. avatar_58 says:

    Do you post to read your own opinion or what? It’s the same thing every post, asking for goon non-talents to beat everyone up. Hilariously “LA ROCK” isn’t even North American. But you know, keep up the good work and all that. I’m sure your hero in the table cloth will agree on HNIC

  33. HAB-PROFESSOR says:

    we have enough offense… its that other ingredient we need… its not rocket science… just North American Grit.

    and damn i’m going to keep saying it till the problem is rectified.

  34. HAB-PROFESSOR says:

    well he has a big head, and its a veteran head, and he has a hot temper…so those things add up to warrant the word ‘big’ as oppossed to poor pyatt, who didn’t deserve that masacre… it must be avenged, along with the cross check to PRices head and the chopping to Pax… those Bas09*&TAR(*DS Lucic and CHARa must be destroyed.

65 minutes of great up and down hockey produced 72 shots and a 3-3 tie.

So Canadiens can’t tumble out of eighth, no matter what happens in the shootout.

Will they go high glove on Price?

Connolly: Glove save

Kovy: Backhand, save

Stafford: Backhand, save

Tanguay: High

Pominville: Wide

Koivu: Backhand, save

Roy: Save

Markov: Save

Vanek: Save

Plekanec: Wide

Lydman: Goal! Five hole

Lapierre: Wide
