A curtailed day off

And then a plane ride to Philadelphia this afternoon.

Should be a happy group.

    To help you along your path, may I therefore suggest you avoid using different tenses in the same sentence?

    Or does that seem to priggish? If it’s too priggish, never mind.

    Hamilton Bulldogs play the Marlies at 1 PM today folks, catch the action on CBC Television, NHL Network and CBC Online.

    Players to watch:
    #4 D Brendon Nash, #19 C Ben Maxwell, #22 C Andreas Engqvist, #23 LW Max Pacioretty (Fresh off a hat trick!) #26 RW Alexander Avtsin, #28 RW Aaron Palushaj, #40 C Gabriel Dumont, #51 C David Desharnais and #72 D Mathieu Carle.

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

    WOW….. What a great week in Montreal :) and last nights game was the price is right show. I like the fact the people on here with actual hockey insight that said over the summer Price would do well and the sky was not falling down.Now Im off to see the Als whip the other team from Toronto :).

  5. Bugs says:

    Yeah, but how many Halpern 5s in 31? (cuz Halpern is the crux of it all) How many? 6.

    Take the 1 left in the Priceberg’s 31 and multply it by the 3? 3. Three times. Three times 6?

    666.

    It’s all there, Danno. No escapin it.

    So book it.

    Bruce Arthur article reminded me why I love writing and wanted to be a journalist. Excellent article.

    You’re just another pompous-ass – just like your friend in Vancouver. The sun set on the British Empire decades ago. Do you suffer from NDP or are you simply high on something? Pick your poison and get rid of that childish Esq. crap you include at the end of each of your messages.

  8. Danno says:

    Turn the figure 666 upside down and you get 999. The word “no” in German is nein which is pronounced exactly like nine and has the same letters. In all three periods last light, Carey Price said “nein” to everything Toronto shot at him. He gave away three pucks at the end of the game to his adoring fans after being selected the number one star of the game. Three and one are the numbers on his sweater (31)

     

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

  9. Propwash says:

    Just blew my mind man.

     

    Goalies in Montreal have two roles, netminder and scapegoat. 

  10. Bugs says:

    Curious observation concerning Jeff Halpern: yesterday, playing the 20th Hab game on the 20th day of the month for the 50 000th game of NHL history, the guy scores his 10th career short-handed goal and his 25th career game-winner after 5 scoreless periods. All those numbers multiples of 5.

    How many goals does Halpern have on the season?

    5.

    Coincidence? I don’t think so. Consider: if you take that 5 and apply it to how many games it took us to get that amount of victories, you get 6 games. So: multiple of 5, 5 scoreless periods, and 5 Halpern goals. Three times. Switch 5 for 6, boom, subliminal 666.

    You see what’s going on? Think it over. And be careful.

    Awesome to see Price on the TSN stat board, leading the league in wins and shut-outs (tied with Thomas with 4), and top 5 in GAA. 

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/statistics/

    Can’t wait to see our amazing passer Gomez leading the league in assists!  

    ——-

    Sad Stat: Grabovski: 14 points. Gomez: 6 points.

  12. habs365 says:

    The only thing wrong with the Gomez signing…he’s over paid…he would be a very good 3rd line center…I don’t see anything more than that…maybe other people do…sorry I don’t.

    Halpern should be the center on the 2nd line…plays a lot better than Gomez and I’m not bashing him…I’m telling it the way I see it…if I’m wrong…I’m wrong…I think most people will agree with me

    we could have spent $6,000.000 of Gomez salary on some pretty good RFA’s

    Great game last night Habs keep it going tomorrow… Carey for sure was a stand out.

  13. WindsorHab-10 says:

    Nice article by Damien Cox. Loved the part about Pat Burn’s ceremony being held in Montreal & not Toronto. He’s so right. No one city does it better than Montreal.

  14. Dintrox says:

    for those who want to watch the Pat Burns tribute again. RIP Pat.

    Really nice to see the Habs stick it to the Leafs last night.

     

    But….

     

    GO ARGOS!!

  16. andrewberkshire says:

    Except he’s a lot stronger and more physical than Higgins, and let’s remember that before Higgins started partying he was a damn good player.

  17. notbigbird says:

    I didn’t know that’s what you were arguing. In that case, we have no argument.

  18. TomNickle says:

    We aren’t talking about the same play.

  19. smiler2729 says:

    Yeah I mentioned that earlier… it’s way nicer without ‘em all here.

  20. Mikey_39 says:

    Not to mention the als trouncing the argos.  Wasn’t even close

  21. Lazarus_taxa says:

    Wow, your explanation makes you seem even more stuck-up.  Whatever your writing here doesn’t make sense.  If you have to ask “is that too priggish?” in a comment on a hockey fan site, then it clearly is.  You should have just wrote nothing, or “sorry, i can’t help that I’m a ‘prig’ and I want everyone to think I’m smart” 

     

    Is that too “priggish”?

  22. CanadienBoy says:

    Make me wounder if Dagostini could have spend so time there as well ?

  23. Lazarus_taxa says:

    If we are talking about the same play, the rule is if you touch the puck first, there is no trip.  That’s why there was no call.

  24. rocketsglare says:

    LOL.

     

    Go Habs Go!

  25. Danno says:

    Komisarek is unhappy in Toronto. Did he report on that?

    So unhappy in fact that he started playing for the Habs last night without even waiting for a trade.

     

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

  26. mbplekfan says:

    Pacioretty was lost in the NHL. The game moved too fast and the size and strength of the players probably intimidated him. He is playing well in Hamilton and his game is improving.

    I dont want the habs to bring him up this year unless necessary but I definitely see him playing in the NHL next year.  A third line of Pouliot-Eller-Pacioretty could be awesome.

  27. Propwash says:

    GO ALS!

    Grey Cup, here we come!

     

    Goalies in Montreal have two roles, netminder and scapegoat. 

  28. samTHEman says:

    MaxPac is tearin it up. 4 goals and 3 assists in the last 3 games.

  29. Curtis O Habs says:

    Don`t forget Martin is an idiot and the game has passed him by.

  30. Number31 says:

    Pacioretty is proving his comments about patience in his desire to develop into what the Habs drafted him to be. Much like Price and his “chill out” comment. Putting his money where his mouth is so far.
