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.

    LOL Well, I have been alive for the last 2 hours, Chuck Norris is old and no longer in any movies.

    With Andrei Markov skating again. Carey Price must be a happy camper. Markov coming back earlier,

    would obviously put less pressure on the kid. Markov in the lineup, the Habs are a different team. The Habs

    Oracle, AKA Kevin Mio, puts the Price signing at around golf tournament time for the Canadiens. Lets hope

    Carey grows up this year.

  3. nunacanadien says:

    Lets hope Markov recovers, as it seems Price really really needs his help.

    Ok, if you knew that, then why did you have to be as A$$ about it? It’s fun for the HABS FANS! We, unlike you, enjoy reading that type of thing as it promotes a nice peacful, yet lively, debate. Wether you read it or not makes no difference to me since it was not wrote for SENS fans.

    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.

    If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can’t see Chuck Norris, you may be only seconds away from death. After a comment like that, you’d best be looking over your shoulder.

    Thx Storm and Company :)

    I actually like the Habs as well.  No worries about me, though.  The awesome moderators who censor and delete anything that challenges anybody’s opinion will soon erase everything I’ve written.  This isn’t a forum for debate.  It’s a virtual hankie for Habs fans to cry into.

    Not soon enough…

    I think Stubbs posted a while back that it was the Friday or Saturday of the weekend of Sept. 17.

  20. 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


  21. SensFanSpezza says:

    Well, obviously it’s not to be taken as fact.  Nostradamus died a long time ago.  I only questioned the point of making predictions when we don’t know what’s going to happen.  Sheesh right back at you.  I must say your well thought out reply is making me want to rush right over and read what you write.

  22. HFX-HabFan says:

    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.  :P

    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!

  23. 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.

    Point well taken!

  25. WarHero says:

    I asked for relative comments, not the garbage that your mouth is spewing. Feel free to go back to your Sens related blogs. Since you know nothing about me, I won’t take the time to explain why I feel that my predictions could come true. I also stated that it was for fun and NOT TO BE TAKEN AS FACT!

    Lastly, I only write there because I can’t do it here in that format… sheesh ..

    lol – fair counter point ;)

    Thanks for taking the time to write it out :)

    Now why can Price discussions not go more like this one ? lmao

  27. The Cat says:

    I agree with your goalie stance on the matter.

  31. HFX-HabFan says:

    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.

  32. SLONCOLD says:

    guess we should shut down this site as well since most of it is subjective…

  33. Sheldon says:

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

  34. SensFanSpezza says:

    I have two problems with this.  1) Your blog is associated with Eklund who dines out on making sucker fans run to his site to read made up rumours.  2) Unless you’re a psychic, you have no clue what any player will do this year any better than all the other fans out there, so what’s the point of making up a bunch of point totals before the season even starts? 

    Then again, it’s Eklund’s site, and everything else on there is made up anyway.  Carry on.

  35. 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?

  36. mrhabby says:

    Ian…i would not put any money on our defensive prospects from hamilton. Carle , Weber  etc,etc looked very out of place.  They don’t look like NHL material. Maybe that will change over time but  as of right now it would be a major hurdle to have these guys play in mtl.

    Love the blog.

  39. HabFab says:

    What are you complaining about? It would at least “light” the tool shed.

  40. mbplekfan says:

    Sure, Weber has a great shot and he can handle the puck. The problem is that he is slow, not terribly strong and generally an easy defenseman to play against.

    In other words Nancy has a hard shot…

    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.

    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?

    AND the devils have to shed 3-5 million in salary, AND they have to re-sign parise at seasons end.  Still dont get this signing by the devils…

    To me it looks like a marketing ploy by ownership to fill the seats.

    What makes you think your so special that I would share any more with you on this rumor.

    Tsk Tsk…

    You want to play & set rules, you had better play by your own rules.

  52. Hoegarden says:

    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.




  53. cautiousoptimist says:

    I dunno, Weber’s shot is excellent and his defensive play isn’t too bad.  Carle is pretty solid, but injuries have hurt him.  Defencemen take ime to develop and learn the NHL game, maybe more than goalies even, and I’m not too worried about the depth on the farm — especially with Picard around to play 6th D minutes when needed.  I’d like to see Carle get a shot though — he’s solid defensively, and he was on pace for 40 points when injuries shortened his season last year.

  56. Bill J says:

    I do admire your persistence…

    Yeah I also do not believe anything from the Bible…

    Go figure eh…

    P.S. before this starts a Holy War…. the reason I do not believe anything from the Bible ?  – It is ALL hearsay, written 6-7 generations after “Jesus” was rumored to walk the earth.

    Ever play the game “Telephone” – multiply that by 7000 & give everyone hallucinogenics – Result ?

    The Bible OR

    Cute B…and some of them actually bit ;)


  60. Bill J says:

    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.


  61. Storm Man says:

    It is a 15 year deal for 100 mil. The NHL will pass this one.

  62. thebigguy says:

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

  63. 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…

  64. Psycho29 says:

    Some people below need some time in the penalty box

  65. GrimJim says:

    The compensation factor is even tougher than most people think, because the CBA reads that the compensatory picks have to be your own picks:

    Article 10.4 Clubs must use their own draft picks (being those awarded directly to the Club by the League for use by it in the Entry Draft, including such draft picks described in the first clause of this parenthetical that a Club has traded or encumbered, and subsequently reacquired or unencumbered.) Clubs cannot acquire picks to use as compensation (with the exception being a Club’s own draft selections that are traded and then re-acquired).

    So I don’t think that the Habs could have make a $1 mil to $2 mil offer, or a $3 mil to $5 mil offer for someone else’s RFA this year because they don’t have their own 2011 2nd round pick (although I don’t know if the Fischer compensatory pick would count as their own or not).
