Michael Cammalleri missed the Canadiens’ practice today with the flu.

Mathieu Darche skated on his own for the third consecutive day while Brett Sopel also worked on his own but wasn’t  using his injured left hand.

    If you don’t mind me asking..what’s a ‘full blown apology’?

  2. TheDagger says:

    Looks like they should have more wins judging by that stat, they have 6 wins where they have outscored their opponents 42-4. Those games kind of skew their GD quite a bit, and makes them look not so good in their games that aren’t blow outs.

    during his radio segment two days ago he called parents who pull their kids from hockey for a couple of games during xmas break ” selfish rats ” he repeated and even yelled it a couple of times. i was listening to it as i drove down a street with the hugest potholes i’ve ever seen , the two combined made for a surreal experience.

    Jordio is right, I hate Cherry, but I watched it off youtube, because I wanted to see what he had to say on behalf of Hockey Night in Canada…

  5. ProHabs says:

    It is weird but here is an odd stat regarding the Rangers:

    Their goal differencial is Plus 27 (GF 198, GA 171). It is almost the exact same Goal Differencial that Washington and Pittsburgh have and better than San Jose. You would think with a Goal Differencial like that, that the Rangers would have a better record.

  7. JIMVINNY says:

    Buttman’s new concussion 5 step program will do a better job of recognizing concussions, and preventing players from trying to play through them, but it does nothing to address the biggest issue of all, which is preventing the concussions in the first place.  

    Way to go, Gary.  So when Sidney Crosby takes another illegal headshot that goes un-suspended, your new system will be able to prevent him from going back out there.  That’s great.

    I’ve been wondering about this lately. You watch the NFL on weekends and they have broadcast analysts consisting of hall of famers and other former star players (Bradshaw, Aikman, Young, Carter etc) and yet the NHL is being represented by personalities such as Kyrpeos, PJ Stock, Mike Milbury, Barnaby. Not to mention a whole flock of broken down NHL back up goalies. Ray Ferraro is in a class of his own because he’s clearly a Hab hate from his years of losing to them with the Whalers and Islanders.

    My thought is: Is it really that surprising that there isn’t more outrage among hockey analysts because the ones who represent a sizeable portion of the voice are former goons themseleves? I’m not saying that hockey broadcasting would immediately gain more respect if the panels consisted of Gretzky and Lemieux, but when you have someone like Brad May getting a platform to discuss the Pacioretty hit when he himself was suspended for 20 games for his face slash to Steve Heinze in Nov/2000 it kind of makes on wonder about the game.

    Former goons analyzing head shots. Its no wonder there isn’t more support…


  10. Ayan_SB says:

    I wonder how many Bruins fans dismissed Joe Thornton as a choker after his comments regarding Chara and noticed the irony of it.

  11. PrimeTime says:

    All Chara had to do was make a public apology but instead he took the “it wasn’t my fault” approach and try to skwirm away. The reason he did not take any responsibility afterwards is because he knew what waht he did in the heat of moment but did not owm up to it. Has he contacted Max yet to apologize? How has Chara’s play been since……playing like a guilty man?? How about the team?? The crime and lie will always follow you around until you admit to the act. Only then can you move on.

  12. Curtis O Habs says:

    … and he will.

  13. Trenton_Romulox says:

    I have heard that Chara tried to contact Pacioretty. I’m assuming it was to express concern, if not a full-blown apology. I don’t know what ended up coming of his attempt. In regards to Chara’s play of late? He’s been playing really well. I don’t regret dropping him from my fantasy team and keeping Pacioretty on the roster one bit though, Chara can go to hell.

    sooner the better…

  15. HabinBurlington says:

    Exactly, i had written almost the exact same post myself awhile ago here.  Guys like Kypreos can’t complain about this style of hockey, they don’t want it gone, for fear that they’re useless careers are no longer validated.  You look at arguable our greatest two physical players in Ferguson and Nilan, and these guys not only were tough, but played important roles and regular shifts on our teams that won Cups.


    Is beyond me why 90% of NHL former players doing play by play etc… are goons or below average goalies.  No stars.  Of course we are enlightened daily by that All – Star former Assistant Coach Pierre Mcguire.   Just can’t figure out why he can’t get another gig, he did such a good job opening the gate for Mario those years back in Pitt.

  16. Timo says:

    We;ll see tomorrow. I think they are not as superb defensively as you think…

  17. HabinBurlington says:

    I think Max got a phone call, but all he heard was grunts and groans, so he hung up.  Who would have thought it was Chara apologizing.

  18. dudurules says:

    any update on max patches o’houlihan?

    R.I.P Richard Martin. one/third of the “French Connection” of the 70’s.

  20. Psycho29 says:

    Not sure if it was mentioned elsewhere here but PJ Stock is no longer part of the morning team on the CHOM webpage….And his name isn’t mentioned anywhere else…

    I haven’t checked it out myself, that website is blocked at my work.

  21. Habnofear says:

    When Buffalo played an exhibition against Moscow Dynamo the coach”THEIR  NATIONAL COACH” was blown away with Martins play and called him the best he’s ever seen. RIP….

  22. observer says:

    pj stock moved to cbc a few months ago

  23. habsonly says:

    I wonder what will be accomplished during the 3 day meeting in Florida. Will the NHL and the GMs work out a solution to the inconsistent dealings with head shots and goonery or will they just work on their golf swing and tans.

    Not sure if anyone has seen this yet but apparently the NHL brain trust has drafted a flow chart for handing out suspensions. See link

  24. observer says:

    was one of the big 3 of those great junior canadiens teams here in the oha when junior hockey was huge here. that team had the biggest crowd ever in the forum to date more than te habs and on a couple of sunday nights. martin, perrault and rejean houle used to fill the net.

  25. ZepFan2 says:


    “Termed the world’s best all-around player by Soviet national team coach Viktor Tikhonov, Bob Gainey brought many elements to the Montreal Canadiens during his 16-year NHL career.”

    Just sayin’.

  26. Psycho29 says:

    He was part of the Morning Show ” Bad Pete, Chantal and PJ” on CHOM through this past Friday. He lives out in St.Lazare and was making the weekly trek to Toronto for HNIC

  27. rocketsglare says:

    Possibly more bad news on the eve of a crucial home game. Cammalleri will be day to day with the flu but I bet he plays

    tommorrow. Cammalleri understands the importance of Tuesday’s game against the Caps.

    Go Habs Go!

  28. shiram says:

    The morning cast was on vacation last week iirc.

    But PJ was not there this morning…

  29. observer says:

    PJ Stock scored 5 goals in his NHL career. That is 5 more than the legend in his own mind Don Cherry scored in his entire NHL career.

  30. observer says:

    i thought you meant team 990. they still use that name at times on air ?

  31. Malreg says:

    THANK GOD!!! Now I can listen to CHOM again in the morning…

  32. habs001 says:

    if the east finished the following way i think this would be good for the habs


    if the top 2 teams advance we play wash second round…if one of them advance we play bost/pitts winner and if both get beaten  we play sabres..

  33. HabinBurlington says:

    Total Goals and Assists for Kypreos, Cherry, P.J Stock and Mike Milbury in Reg. NHL Season

    100 Goals 254 Assists

    Total Goals and Assists for Joe Thornton Reg. NHL Season

    301 Goals 686 Assists

    I think I will go with Joe’s thoughts on the NHL over Moe, Curly, Larry and Shemp.
