A curtailed day off

And then a plane ride to Philadelphia this afternoon.

Should be a happy group.

Quotes from the room

About last night …

• Pierre Ladouceur on Plekanec and Gorges

• Bruce Arthur on a fitting tribute to Pat Burns

• Damien Cox on an emotional night

    Go away. Your literary masturbation is of no value to this site. I don’t expect you to respond because you live in a”psychopathic bubble”.

  2. Bill J says:

    Not to be rude.

    But you do realize who wears the other A in Montreal, right ?

    How’s HIS point production.

    Where we not all last season, until the playoffs scratching our collective heads as to why he had the A ?

    Points is not a factor for the A in Montreal, in Montreal it about what it is meant to be.  The leadership core.

    Now I do agree somewhat, Pleks or Gorges IMO may have made good choices.  But Gomez is “part” of the leadership core, and deserves it equally…


    Price no longer has a Glove side issue.

  3. Number31 says:

    He played well at first, scored in his first game. At the time he was a wide-eyed kid who had an excellent camp but still went to Hamilton, got called up for injury replacement BUT he was doing well in the AHL at the time. However he wasn’t used to the speed and workload, and his body wasn’t able to hold his style of play at the time (hence the injuries, mostly from hitting players). He played injured with an abdominal tear and in the next year with a separated shoulder… He’s grown into his body more, he’s healthy, he bulked up, and he’s more at ease with the workload now. All he had was school hockey under his belt.

    Hell I remember Pierre McGuire saying in a preseason game that there was no way he’d be sent to Hamilton (who now crows about him being rushed, blah blah blah).

    I’d love to see him on Eller’s wing though. Right now he’s with Maxwell and White (who’s injured, so it’s Wyman who’s more a defensive guy). They have him on the PK to work on his defensive game. He was excellent with Pleky and Kovy…I’d say he might be good for Gomez (who needs wingers not named Lapierre).

  4. Aaron13 says:

    Just ignore Bugs. He’s a pathetic attempt to synthesize his perception of high class and pedantics.

  5. habstrinifan says:

    He used to be Chris Higgins all over again. Get on the ice and go hell bent without any thought in his game. Chris unfortunately hasnt changed but Pacs is, base don what I saw in AHL today.

  6. Aaron13 says:

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. notbigbird says:

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

  10. TomNickle says:

    We aren’t talking about the same play.

  11. smiler2729 says:

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

  12. Mikey_39 says:

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

  13. 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”?

  14. CanadienBoy says:

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

  15. 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.

    Go Habs Go!

  17. 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!”

  18. 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.

  19. Propwash says:

    GO ALS!

    Grey Cup, here we come!


    Goalies in Montreal have two roles, netminder and scapegoat. 

  20. samTHEman says:

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

  21. Curtis O Habs says:

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

  22. 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.

  23. Say Ash says:

    and the Als!

  24. Seps says:

    Maybe he didn’t have an influence on Gill but I can guarantee you Gomez had a huge influence on Gionta coming to Montreal, which in turn would cause Cammalleri to think we’ll have a pretty good team and come here as well.  I don’t think Gainey is that much of an idiot that he’d trade just for Gomez’s so-called “abilities.”  

  25. rocketsglare says:

    Monday morning for Toronto sports radio is going to be interesting, given the Habs and Bulldogs win’s

    over their respective team’s this weekend. Life is good.


    Go Habs Go!

    Go Dogs Go!

  26. rocketsglare says:

    Higgins, he is not.


    Go Habs Go!

  27. Mikey_39 says:

    Eklund has to be the biggest douche in the universe.  Usually, I’d only go on hockeybuzz for the habs bloggers, but I’ll admit, sometimes reading his rumours has been somewhat of a guilty pleasure of mine.  However, I’ve never seen anything more pathetic from him than what he posted yesterday, claiming that his source (bill watters) says that Carey Price is unhappy in Montreal.  What the  dbag failed to mention is that Bill Waters is a radio host for a TORONTO radio station.  

  28. Bugs says:

    Sounds like Chris Higgins all over again, no?

    Tragically misunderstood, please bite

  29. rocketsglare says:

    I can see Pacioretty with the team next year. His game has developed so much in Hamilton.

    He has big league shot. He simply has to learn how to finish more often.


    Go Habs Go!

  30. SeriousFan09 says:

    Valentenko? 1G, 1A in 20 games in the AHL this season, +3 and 8 PIM. I have a feeling he’s more likely career KHL than NHL.


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