Canadiens goalie Carey Price is not practising today, the final day of Habs training camp in Clermont, said to be suffering from the flu.

    Haven’t got any new material…gosh you are an angry individual.

  2. Bugs says:

    Nooo, it’s transmitted through non-scarfiness and non-sweateritude! Ain’t you ever been to SCHOOL?

    Pff…mucous membraned air-carriers…

    Go back to Mars, why dontcha?

    Cortisone is only a short term solution, it will get rid of the inflamation, but after the inflamation passes be sure to do some core training and light strength training for your back so that you don’t get a repeat injury.

    Bugs, ever since I visited Barcelona, I love paella…it seems we may have much to discuss if Auld gets the nod…



    I may disapprove of what you say, but I will defend your right to make yourself look stupid.

  5. Clay4bc says:

    Yeah, but you’re a T-Rex…

    I was not very impressed with him and thought Carle to be a better player but I was also surprised to see that he looks a little heavier this year.

  7. derfab says:

    Yes but only in the hip. Pinch of the needle, strange, tight pressure in the area followed by immediate relief (that may or may not last). Basically, no sweat compared to surgery. Good luck!

  8. flowerpower_74 says:

    I’m sorry Bugs but you don’t get the flu from not wearing a sweater or scarf. For someone supposed to be civilized, you should know that. It is transmitted through the aiir or with contact with your mucous membranes from others who carry it.


    Habs will gel as a team.

  9. SLONCOLD says:

    not fun at all. hope u get better.

  10. Chuck says:

    When you pick a guy to be your backup, you have to be confident in him being able to start successfully for a 2+ week stretch, considering that at some point in the season your starter is going to go down with an injury. So yeah, if they believe that he’s capable in do ing the job, I give them the benefit of the doubt.
