    sh_t and I can’t frop him from my pool…

    Actually BGL skated around begging Lucy to drop the gloves and Lucy ran like a coward. I also remember BGL pounding the snot out of Thornton a couple times. Guess you missed those games?

    sent my letter to the CBC ombudsman and Masse and here is the reply:

     Dear Mr. Underwood: I write to acknowledge receipt of your e-mail, which I note you also sent to David Masse. CBC’s Office of the Ombudsman was set up to help ensure that the Corporation’s policies and standards of journalism be fully observed in CBC news and current affairs programming. Sports programming is generally beyond the mandate and jurisdiction of this office. Sincerely, Kirk LaPointe CBC Ombudsman >>> Todd Underwood 17/12/10 8:43 AM >>>

     Dear Sirs, I had the opportunity to catch part of the Hockey game on CBC last night and it disgusted me! Is it part of the CBC mandate to have the likes of Mike Milbury denigrate a hockey team on national television by calling them “Cockroaches” among other things? It is bad enough that we are subject to Don Cherry’s blatant racism every week, but there has to be a breaking point when common decency should prevail. The CBC is a “National” broadcaster, that is quickly becoming/has become an irrelevant “Regional” broadcaster that is Toronto centric. As usual though I expect this e-mail to fall on deaf ears, which is unfortunate. Sincerely, Todd Underwood

    and he’s a whining baby who tries to steal pucks at the end of the game.

    I agree with the poster above, he isnt even close to being the best defensemen in the league, far from the best player. 

  6. J_P says:

    Seriously! Boston is a bunch of softies these days.  Even Max Lapierre was giving it to big Zdeno Chara in the corners in the third last night.  This is the team that blew a 3-0 series lead and than blew a 3-0 lead in the decisive game seven.  Soft and Mentally fragile, definitely not the bruins of back in the day. 

  7. J_P says:

    Milbury is the worst GM in the history of the NHL and PJ stock is a complete hack who was THAT guy who tried to get guys to fight because that was the only way he could earn his paycheck.

    Theres a reason why a 35 year old PJ stock hasnt been playing for over 5 years, and a reason why mike milbury is no longer a GM.  Who could care less what they have to say.

    Don’t forget Guy Lapointe, a HOFer on the ice, off the ice, biggest pratical joker the Habs ever had.

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  9. LA Loyalist says:

    Dog, serious is a brain and they can sometimes be a bit literal – I think he means just because Gomez is loose off the ice it doesn’t mean he’s not focused on the ice. Larry Robinson is an example of a great practical joker who was all business on the ice. That’s all. I don’t mean to get in middle but you guys are my two favorite posters.

  10. Say Ash says:

    He finally deked. I wish he did it more on breakaways.

  11. Mattyleg says:

    There’s no indication in my email that I am a Habs fan, and the email was more about the things he said that were not in the spirit of the game, and were bad influences on young minds.

    I’ve watched him talk about other teams, and he’s just as annoying and unspeakably crass.

    I didn’t say anything about bias. That’s not what this is about.

    Are you saying paccioretty is a novelty addition? Or do you see paccioretty as a legitimate option? I cant really tell from your post.

  13. Propwash says:

    Cammi’s penalty shot.

    Goalies in Montreal have two roles, netminder and scapegoat. 

  14. HabFanSince72 says:

    Actually Laraque didn’t stop anyone from getting into fights against Boston. Just ask Komi.

     

  15. Storm Man says:

    ROFLMAO….. A cartoon come on.

  16. J_P says:

    Thats a pretty good assessment.  Hopefully your assessment is correct and that line keeps bringing it for the rest of the season. 

  17. Storm Man says:

    You would be the first to run out and buy his jersey if he was on the Habs.

  18. habmanj says:

    Off topic:  I’m driving from Waterloo, ON to Charlottetown, PE leaving this Sunday.  I wanted to stop in Montreal for the Sunday night and watch the game at Hurley’s (always hear the ads when listening to 990).  That leaves a bit of a drive for day 2 though so now I am thinking I may stop in Quebec City the first night instead.  Does anyone know of a good spot there to watch the game and have a few beverages?

    Any input would be appreciated!

  19. Natrous says:

    Carbo was doing the RDS broadcast, which – regardless whether or not you speak French – is far and away the better broadcast between that and the CBC.

  20. Omit says:

    How can Pronger be the best player in the NHL when he’s not even close to being the best D-man?

  21. avatar_58 says:

    I want the habs to be hated for skill, not asshatery

  22. joeybarrie says:

    I honestly don’t know. I don’t love Don Cherry and his comments, but I have to say I understand fully why they have him…

    Milbury???? NO CLUE. Then again I could never understand how that little 15 years old looking PJ Stock could be an enforcer at 5’10 190… Then again Cammi kicked Krejci’s A** yesterday…

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

  23. Propwash says:

    He has been Subbanated.

  24. _Habsoloutly_ says:

    Very telling that when we don’t have an enforcer the Bruins are dropping their gloves and eager to fight after every bump and clean check. Yet when we had an enforcer they ran away like cowards, too scared to fight.  Boston and Philly are like school in the summer, no class.l

  25. avatar_58 says:

    Why does this no talent assclown even have a job?

    For what it’s worth, here’s the response I received to my email about Milbury and his remarks:

    Pretty much what I expected but at least I got it off my chest.

    Pronger is a very effective player, and he has 10 more blocked shots this season than Hall Gill. 10 powerplay points and 14 total…

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

  28. RGM says:

    Don’t you watch Family Guy?

    “FCC Suit 1: Gentlemen, we got 20 calls about the David Hyde-Pierce incident. And as you know, one call equals a billion people, which means 20 billion people were offended by this. Needless to say, something must be done.” – PTV, November 6, 2005

    Go Habs Go!

  29. joeybarrie says:

    First and most important. I hope they are wrong about PG not making a move before the Feb window closes. We really need another D, and maybe even a top 6 forward. But I would prefer a D. I hope he has the FULL killer instinct to get us to win a cup. I do not think we have a good chance at the Cup without a top defenseman.

    Mike Milbury is an idiot. He has DIRECTLY hurt the Isles franchise for year to come. He is directly responsible for the cap hit for Yashin. He lost them all their top prospects that they acquired while being the worst team in the league. He is responsible for Wade Redden, Zdeno Chara, Luongo, Taylor Pyatt, Tim Connolly, Raffi Torres, Salo, Jokinen, Bertuzzi, and Zigmund Palffy…. Among other boneheaded errors…. He lost out on Marian Hossa, Danny Heatley and Jason Spezza… AND the NHL changed its policy of having the Coach pick the All Star team, cause IDIOT Milbury wanted to bring in enforcers to roughen up the game… So I really dont expect anything intelligent to come out of his ‘Don Cherry lite’ mouth. Toronto’s latest GM decision have been better than Milbury’s…

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

    I was working last night til 10pm central time and at one point during the night I felt like I got hit by a train…

    I guess it was just the aftershock from PK’s hit on Marchand… I bet everyone felt it, lol.

  31. shiram says:

    I think those email matters, if the issue is important to those people they should definately send them in.
    The other means of showing your frustration towards their announcers is to listen to other broadcasters.

  32. Storm Man says:

    I have had that feeling for years now, But I would have him on the Habs in a heartbeat.
