    Habs fan Since ’54…

    Right on Triplex… lol !

    They coulda also gone to that other ‘walk on water’ Leaf , that ‘Splendid Swede’ , Mats Sundin.

    Uggghhhh!

    Well ok, maybe that wasn’t a T.O. fabrication but as link above shows,our own LLSJ, Red Fisher. Maybe ‘ole Red has spent too much time in T.O. lately. LOL !

    There’s T.O. then there’s the rest of the hockey universe. Although it seems that they are actually starting to smell the coffee. Too bad John Ferguson Jr. had to take the fall. I betcha if John Sr. was still alive that c*%p would’nt have gone down last month !

    I can just see Fergy crashing an MLSE board meeting. Steve Stavro ‘woulda cr*&ped his pants !

    Too bad CBC broadcasts ‘outta there. Was listening to Bob Cole screw up the game again last night. Sure glad I got the RDS HD feed !

    ;-)

    great comments as usual seulmann. PJ stock was a 20 game mistake for us and now he tries to take it out on the team. He said on 990 that he was not a fan of the habs and couldn’t really care what they did. pj move to kingston to be with that other idiot who you probally idolize. GO HABS GO

  3. Sulemaan says:

    He used to play a couple of games with us when he was a player (I use that term generously) and then left town because he couldn’t crack the lineup.

  4. slamtherimtim says:

    990 should fire him for being so dumb

  5. Jonnyboy says:

    “when he was a player (I use that term generously)”

    haha well put

  6. TripleX says:

    Why is he so negative with regards to anything concerning the Habs? He is positive that Price is going to fail as well. What a douche! Does he have a history with the Habs organization?

    Occasionally i listen to PJ’s radio show and i like his opinions as he’s a straight shooter and i may not agree with him all the time he gives me a better insight into the game as he’s not on the fence like so many are with their spin (the suckies). He was a player , like Benoit (RDS) , and has many friends in the NHL and he’s not shy to let us know their view of the game. When he started on radio he was the 1st to state that the Habs made a mistake with signing Samsonov (ex teammate) but i quess you people would castrate him for being so objective. Some of you posters that criticze anybody that sayes anything against their team are getting like laffs fans and you know how abnormal they are so look into the mirror.

  8. Hoegarden says:

    André Savard, then Habs manager, traded this air-head for Gino Odjick. Need we say more ?

  9. knucklesnilan says:

    PJ Stock is so full of crap and Maclean isn’t much better. They don’t get it at all. Huet being traded had nothing to do with Price.
    It had to do with Halak who was going to bolt next year to Russia if he wasn’t promoted this year to the big club. Halak has done the job in Hamilton and he wanted Gainey to show some faith in him and get him on the roster this year.
    Halak wants the opportunity to show off his talents.
    The media is totalling missing this.
    Huet is a good goalie but he wasn’t going to lead us to the cup this year. We are doing great this year but I believe this playoff run no matter how long or short it is will be a learning experience for the years to come for this young team and Gainey knows that.
    So PJ just shut your trap, you know nothing and you prove it every time you open your mouth.

    Go Habs Go !!

    Sorry about the small type. It’s electronically cut from tonight’s game notes and pasted into this post as a jpg image, reduced to fit the page as it’s mechanically set up. Can you save it to your desktop and enlarge it there?

    Is there any way to make the information added to the end of the article easier to read? It seems to be added as a picture or something because unlike Dave’s comments at the top, I can’t resize the font to make it bigger.

  13. TripleX says:

    HAHA…does Maclean listen to his own BULLS**t. After interviewing Plekaniks he says…”now lets go to another player on fire….BLAKE FOR TORONTO. Oh good lord….PLEASE.

  14. Hoegarden says:

    1 goal in his last 12 games ! Imagine if he scored 2.

  15. B says:

    Thanks Dave, I managed to save the extra info as jpg pictures and was able to “zoom in” on it with the windows picture viewer. Darn diminishing eyesight :)

  16. Mike says:

  17. LizardKing1967 says:

    Awsome! And if I recall correctly, 1993 team had 6 20-goal scorers. Including 4 30+ goal scorers

    Jim-out.

    I BELIEVE!

  18. martin says:

    can anyone explain what pj stock is doing in the media?

  19. LizardKing1967 says:

    no body else wants the job?? Or, he’s the second coming of Don Cherry!

    Jim-out.

    I BELIEVE!

  20. TripleX says:

    PJ STOCK…What an idiot! He says the only reason the Habs are going with youth is that no one else wants to play for them. I guess everyone wants to play for the Laffs. CBC SUCKS AND TSN SUCKS…SO TORONTO CENTRIC. If the Laffs were in first could you imagine the hype on these two loser networks.

  21. Sulemaan says:

    Agreed. This is what I posted on Boone’s blog:

    P.J. Stock is such a tool.. He says no one wanted to sign in Montreal as a free agent. Gee, does Roman Hamrlik, Andrei Markov and Alexei Kovalev count as mice nuts? All of them were either UFAs or going to be.

    It’s easy to mention that Brier and Shanahan didn’t sign her and mention Smolinski and Kostopolous are just sitting in the press box. This guy couldn’t cut it with the team and now he get his facts wrong.

    I love this gem, “They have to go with the youth movement because no one will sign with Montreal.” Guess we would be better off as Toronto?

    The fact that we are #1 in our division, #2 in the conference and Toronto is #12 position has nothing to do with it. Granted some UFAs don’t want to play here because of the media, language issue and taxation but a blanket statement is just plain wrong.
