Canadiens hit the links

The team’s annual golf tournament takes place today at the ritzy Laval-sur-le-Lac club.

Patrick V. Hickey and David Stubbs (pictured at left in a training session) will be there.

Hick will bring his sticks and play 12 holes.

Stubbs will bring his Edirol recorder and file audio later today.

• Hickey on Ian Schultz and Aaron Palushaj

• François Gagnon says Brian Gionta will wear the C

• Pauline Marois sees the Canadiens as federalist symbol.

Yves Boisvert responds to Réjean Tremblay. This is getting good.

• What a mess! Did the Caps screw Éric Belanger? Washington’s side of the story

    Messrs. Boone, Hickey and Stubbs out on the links.

    And this is perhaps one of the greatest moments in cinematic history.


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

    re: shootouts

    Fans like them, but the teams don’t want their fates decided by them.  So the NHL should have done the opposite of what they did – they should have shootouts not count in the standings, but count for deciding ties (win total would include shootout wins).  Return to the 2-1-0 system for points, no points for losers.  Mission accomplished.

    “you take drugs danny?”


    “good boy”


    amazing comedic timing here. i think it’s the funniest part of the movie because of that.

  5. Dr-Watson says:

                        Boone must have borrowed a pair of pants from Gionta.

    Although he wouldn’t be my choice, I’m not in the room, and I think Gio will probably make a fine captain. He puts it all out there, goes to the net, and doesn’t back down from anyone. He’s a good example for others to follow, and I think he’ll have a lot of cred.

  7. CP31 says:

    According to Pierre Gauthier’s latest Tweet from a few minutes ago, Brian Gionta will be the next HABS captain.

    “Brian Gionta has been a positive force both on and off the ice since joining the team. This is a proud time for him and the organization”

    Nice picture of Boone and Stubbs getting ready to golf!

    Gotta love Boisvert’s “sodomie fiscale” response to Tremblay.

    He’s right about the fact that a new rink in Quebec has limited relevance outside of hockey and that it can’t be more lucrative than what the market now supports.  

    I also think he’s on to something about the Olympic Games being in big trouble due to absurd, out of control factors like security costs.
