A heavy week continues

The Canadiens are on Long Island tonight, where Alex Auld gets his first start of the season.

And one more sleep till the return of Andrei Markov.

• He’s big, he’s bald, he’s starting

Dave Stubbs on Auld

• Red Fisher on big goals

• Sean Gordon feature on Geoff Molson

• Bertrand Raymond is not a Scott Gomez fan

• Réjean Tremblay on Guy Lafleur

And Christie Brinkley loves Islander hockey

    The only reason gionta signed with the Habs is because Gomez was there.

    And just so we’re clear.  There are plenty of people who haven’t played the game who have a tremendous amount of knowledge about it.

    It just so happens that you fall into the category of clueless people when it comes to the intricacies of the actual game whether you played or not.

    It’s been an honest discussion.  You’ve tried to poke holes in the argument that defensemen don’t appreciate a forward who can carry the puck the length of the ice and forward don’t appreciate the same while not having to take punishment in the corners on the forecheck.

    You don’t seem to understand that.  If you don’t understand that, you aren’t and weren’t a hockey player.

    Please find somebody else who disagrees with that.  You consistently make remarks that indicate that you’ve never played competitively like that Gomez doesn’t make his teammates better and that Rick Nash and Mike Cammalleri are failures when they go through scoring droughts.

    Your valuation of players is that of an armchair GM who hasn’t played because you only see value in goalies who get shutouts and players who lead their teams in scoring.

    I’m disagreeing with plenty of people right now on a number of issues and not saying they’ve never played.  But they don’t argue universal truths about hockey matters that novice players understand.  You’re out of your league when it comes to hockey and anything that you write that isn’t related to the business of hockey is nonsense more often than not.
