Markov back on skates

According to RDS, injured Canadiens defenceman Andrei Markov has resumed skating on his own.

The all-star was injured during the playoff series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and had surgery on his injured knee in the offseason.

    While I do realize that I shouldn’t wade into this one, on this topic, the question I can never get an answer to is this: I am an atheist. So why does the burden of proof always seem to fall on my to disprove the word of the bible? Shouldn’t it be on those who promote this book and demand that I accept its words to prove its validity?

    It is rather obvious that you are a  “perceptive and intelligent” person. Although if you read it again, you may notice this time hopefully, that he failed to include the word each as in asking four teammates if they could EACH give him two twenties for a ten. [$40-10=$30] LOL

    First of all GJ, he is not stating or implying a reference to nuclear fission or is even close to binary fission. He alluded to the use of fission in the improper sequence. You are right and wrong if I am understanding you correctly, when you state the process with the result because the fission will not occur until the uranium actually does split or divide into two nuclei[lighter] I have sensitive work related data on my computers, therefore for the obvious reason I did not click on to the information you provided. However despite being a conservative you appear to be quite informed and knowledgeable. There is no direct or implied intent to offend you.

  12. GrimJim says:

    Sorry T, but Sheldon is correct in one area. Nuclear fission is caused by bombarding radioactive isotopes with either alpha particles or neutrons. The collision of these particles with the atom causes the nucleus to split and release vast quantities of energy. For a complete explanation, see

    Hey, no prob.  I didn’t want to turn the discussion on a Habs site to be all about religion, but for this one I couldn’t sit idly by.  Standing up for what you believe, I know you’re no stranger to that one.  😛

    Every Price discussion will cause blood pressure to rise in at least ten people until a) he signs, and b) the season starts.  I think both Price and the Habs will come out fine.  We’re almost at September!

  14. Mr-T says:

    I believe the term fission is the splitting or dividing not colliding of a process, therefore it would result in the split/divide of something into two parts.

    Hey Bill,

    I appreciate that you’re one of the most passionate posters on here.  I do however want to make an objection to this post- you’re certainly entitled to your own opinions and beliefs, but at least consider this:

    Jesus is historically recorded to have been born somewhere between 4 BC and 5 AD.  His death (and resurrection, whether or not you believe that is entirely your own call) is listed at around 30-33 AD.  The first recorded writing of a book in the New Testament is the book of James, written probably somewhere in the late 50s or early 60s.  That is less than thirty years (far less than seven generations).  The majority of the New Testament is written by people who came into personal contact with Jesus.  The Old Testament is chock full of prophecies that point to Jesus.

    Whether or not you believe, the books of the Bible have been verified by many academics, regardless of their personal religious affiliations or beliefs.  The Bible is often used as the most reliable historical source for its time period.

    Again, you’re entitled to your own opinions and beliefs.  I’m just throwing out some stats to go against what you said- it would be like you claiming that Price has a career save percentage of .864 and a GAA north of 3.  I would have to say that I believe/the stats show otherwise.

    Everyone else on this site is pulling something, you might as well too.

  21. Sheldon says:

    This just in. Louis Leblanc has figured out a novel way to supplement his income while playing for the Montreal Juniors. After asking four team mates if they could give him two twenties for a ten, he netted $120. According to my buddy, next week he is going to ask them each for two fifties for a twenty! Ain’t it great to play in the Q?

    Cincinnati went to Nashville and Florida as affiliates. We haven’t given them a lot of players so perhaps with two NHL affiliates they will receive more players.

    hi 100,

    The Cyclones are now affiliated with the Preds and Panthers, according to their web site.

    Sounds to me like a “Dollars and Cents” move by the Habs. Wheeling being a small city (30,000) compared to Cincy.

    a book written 7 generations after Jesus was rumored to walk this planet.

    is HEARSAY!

    Not one person involved in the writings of the Bible EVER came into contact with Jesus himself or ANY of the involved participants.

    Second information being bad enough, when you make that # double digits, the story certainly can be skewered quite a bit.

    Are you suggesting that reading Milton Friedman is ever a good idea?

  35. 100HABS says:

    Thanks for the link – that’s interesting new information. Still, it doesn’t explain why they chose to let go of the Cincinnati Cyclones after winning two recent championships with them.

    Also, the affiliation with the Nailers is shared with the Pens. I don’t see that as an advantage…

    The just in: Laps was spotted in a downtown Montreal bar carrying a copy of Milton Friedman’s “Free to Choose.” When asked about his new-found interest in the late Nobel laureate’s famous work, he responded that he didn’t want to appear to be a total dolt if he was asked to room with Louis Leblanc. (The plot thickens!)

    There are people who are sceptical to the acceptance that the Bible is truly evidence of God. They reject it on hearsay grounds using the lay definition, although they often attempt to apply legal consequences to it, therefore why believe it in this context.

    I remember Pierre McGuire saying during that Detroit game: “How could Montreal possibly send Pacioretty back to the AHL?”.  And now he’s the first to point out that we rushed him.

    Hopefully Patches can get it together.  I think a huge part of it is confidence.

  60. Sheldon says:

    Just got off the blower with a friend that is close to the Montreal Juniors. He told me that Louis Leblanc is now rueful about his decision to leave Harvard. He told my buddy that he is losing his mind spending time with the dolts on that squad off the ice. Evidently, he told the coach that if he is forced to room with one of them blood will be shed.
