Pearn staying

Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports Perry Pearn has turned down the WHL Oil Kings and will stay with the Canadiens as Jacques Martin’s assistant.

As the news spread, fans flocked into the streets of downtown Montreal (in picture at left) chanting “Perry! Perry!”

• Who is Tyler Pitlick?

    For all his bombast, I give McGuire credit for some stuff, for example he’s one of very few analysts that I know of who will speak about matchups and which ones the coaches are trying to get — a crucial piece of analysis that’s absent from far too many commentators who really ought to know about this.

    He knows a lot of stuff, but boy… he does get carried away.

  4. SeriousFan09 says:

    Celine Phaneuf are you kidding? Overrated prima donna whose become a progressively worse player over his last two seasons. Markov’s better defensively he is on his best day and has led a top-ranked PP unit for several years, when’s Phaneuf ever managed that? Add in the rising star of P.K. Subban and we’ve got them beat easily there.

  5. crabvader says:

    Cammalleri and Gionta are as good as Kessel, what the hell are you on about?

    Both Cammy and Gio got injured and were still damn close to Kessel’s goal totals.

    Let me also remind you that Cammy let the playoffs in scoring even during the Stanley Cup final.

    Go on, talk more trash about our team.

  6. oshawahabsfan says:

    I hope the Minnesota love affair is over, it’s been a pretty fruitless endevour. The only decent prospect we have from there is Pacioretty, and who knows still how he will pan out. Clearly the CHL is producing the better players, perhaps our scouting staff can start looking there

  7. habsguy says:

    Ummmmm, I think I’ve heard it before!!!

  8. habsguy says:

    just wondering,  how old are they compared to your hero Burke?

  9. habsguy says:

    I don’t know what part of the country you’re from dude, but here where I reside every second car had a canada flag on it..

  10. Bill J says:

    Hey Genius!!!!

    1) Canada is not in the world Cup.  Thus why you will not see a Canadian flag these days.

    2) YES — When the Olympics where going on, there was SH!TLOADS of patriotism in Canada.  Where the hell where you hiding at to not see it ?

    Worst Host/Analyst/Rinkside Reporter: Pierre McGuire, NBC/TSN. This man is on too much for my tastes. He adds nothing. He says nothing. He does nothing. All McGuire does is take up space. Very rarely does he add insight from ice level. Instead, he’ll say something like, “No goal, Edzo” to which Olcyzk will reply, “We know, Pierre.” That’s stellar analysis. And when he does on-ice interviews, the subjects whether it be a coach or player will not give anything we don’t already know. McGuire needs to be removed from broadcasts next season. Maybe that elusive GM job will pop up and we the viewers will be spared from his claptrap.

    McGuire’s good for one thing: Background. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of every North American player (“He played three years with the Moose Tooth Jackals of the Yukon Gold League, Edzo.”).

    But he’s a lousy sparring partner on the studio set and can’t seem to balance his reporting between the benches (which can be interesting in an eavesdropping way) with his game analysis (which is frustratingly inaccurate at times; please recall Keith and Seabrook being afraid of Dan Carcillo rather than D’ing up another line in Game 2 of the finals.

       “I love this kid,” a scouting director for an Eastern Conference team slated to pick in the middle of the first round told NHL FanHouse back in March. “I know this sounds a little warped, but it’s gotten to the point where I don’t mind it if Connolly misses games. I figure there’s a better chance he’ll slip down to us.”

       The first thing that hits us when examining the top end of this year’s crop on the blue line is that it’s a decidedly mediocre class with no real candidates to become a true No. 1 defenseman at the NHL level.


  14. smiler2729 says:

    Oh there’s a parade every June in Toronto but it’ll never be for the Laffs… some Pride thing.

  15. OneTimer says:

    This coming from Leafs fans is pretty funny, it’s like a midget making fun of a short guy for being short, it just doesn’t work.


    Maybe the Leafs won’t be the laughing stock of the NHL again this year? Maybe? BTW thanks for trading the No. 1 pick in-division, assholes.

  16. Jbird says:

    CBC – they feed online it as well . CBC also is replaying games at night.  As a poster below says you could order CBC Bold – which would be the only reason to ever get CBC Bold.

    ESPN in the US and ABC has a few games.

    December 4, 2009 – Elmer Lach’s jersey took its rightful place with the Rocket’s in the rafters.

  18. crabvader says:

    Down goes brown,

    He has many reasons to frown,

    Jealousy seeping through every pore,

    He’s just upset his Leafs can’t score.

    Felt a bit like ’93?

    Funny how a clown can come up with such material,

    When compared to us, his team is trivial.

    1967, the age of the hippie, 

    Leafs fans are still high, 

    If they think their team won’t go another forty-three.

    I don’t have as much time as Brown,

    To defecate lyrical nonsense about his betters,

    But I do know one thing; His team will NEVER parade the Cup downtown.


  19. camel_larry says:

    What a moron. Every single thing he said can be turned around and used against the leafs 5x over.


    Go Habs Go!

  20. megagoten says:

    pretty sure that’s all

  21. SeriousFan09 says:

    Not necessarily 1st-round, but the closer to 1st overall pick, the worse the luck. Dipietro and Lehtonen are glass-men and Fleury’s not Mr. Consistent. I still like Price’s talent level and 2005 was not a banner year of the draft exactly.

    Cam Ward didn’t work out too badly though and the two hot goaltending prospects for possible trade, Schneider and Bernier were 1st-round picks, selecting in the 20s area seems safer, I still think Varlamov in WSH has something to make of himself and Tukka Rask was Boston’s man this year after all.



    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  22. likehoy says:

    this is just ironic that it’s been written by leafs fans. jealousy is written all over this.

  23. HardHabits says:

    There should just be a rule that goalies cannot be picked in the 1st round.

  24. ProHabs says:

    Maybe we can trade Halak for Stamkos, Price for Carter and then sign Jose The-Odor to play between the pipes. Bring back Huet to be his backup. 

  25. SeriousFan09 says:

    You’re never going to move a goalie for a 20-year old 50 goal scorer HH, that’s not happening unless Mike Milbury gets a GM job and Rejean Houle is his assistant.

    I take issue with Carter for reasons that have NOTHING to do with what team he plays on. He doesn’t reliably hold the Centre position on his team, which would indicate he doesn’t have a strong hand in the faceoff circle and his playoff stats, even accounting for him being injured this year are not overly strong, basically scoreless in 2 of his 4 years in the playoffs and that’s hardly knocking me over with awe.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  26. RiverviewCanadien says:

    A key factor to the success of the Habs and the success of any team that advances…Chemistry and playing for one another. How many times was that repeated from the Habs during this playoff run? You really cannot make THAT many drastic changes this year, it could mess things up that they built this season.

  27. Mark says:

    Here in SK it’s on CBC. The Alternate feed is on Bold, but that’s a digital cable channel.

  28. HardHabits says:

    Tyler Pitlick, center, Minnesota State (WCHA) >> LMFAO at that!!!

    Seems right since the Habs have cornered the market on Minnesota.

  29. HardHabits says:

    I love it but it aint going to happen. Halak for Stamkos maybe.

    Price for Carter is more realistic. Carter is a SH demon. He’d do very well in JM’s “system” and he’d “gel” right away with the Habs. Don’t listen to SF09, he has a Flyers bias and isn’t thinking clearly when he denigrates Carter. Carter for Price I would take in a New York minute and it would be a good trade for both teams.

  30. SeriousFan09 says:

    That’ll never happen… I was just stating since Stamkos’s likely to get Toews-level cash in his next contract, adding on Halak at 3-5 million isn’t as attractive as Price at 1-1.5 instead.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  31. A. Berke says:

    That’s a good one   🙂

  32. ProHabs says:

    Price for Stamkos, I like it.

  33. nickster13 says:

    Random question: What channel is showing the world cup? cable channels of course..

  34. ABHabsfan says:

    Hey, the guy is a complete spaz on d, just saying he can shoot. That’s it.

  35. habs001 says:

    we cannot have gorges on the second pp unit as that just kills the pp 95% of the time…we also must win more faceoffs when we start our pp/pk …plecks and gomez lose a lot of these …since no blue chip prospects at forward that are ready to play this season and no young forwards on the roster that will get better in producing goals we are going to have tons of 2-1, 3-2 games again… realistically our hope is to sneak into the playoffs again and cause damage vs better teams….as the line up stands now this team is not a top 10 team over 82 games….

  36. HardHabits says:

    Are you kidding me?!?!?!? MAB accomplished in one season what it took Breezer over two decades to accomplish. And by that I mean earning ridicule.

  37. HardHabits says:

    Habs-Prof ratio is 80% N.A.G. and 20% skilled european.

  39. SeriousFan09 says:

    Halak’s cap hit is hard to swallow on the Tampa roster, especially with Stamkos having a huge contract kicking in after this season when they negotiate to the 5-7 million range. Lot of costs piling up, it would be easier to try and build up Carey than take on the salary demands that would see Halak dealt.

  40. lavie says:

    Did you mean that Markov would be the last Russian player on Habs’ roster?

  41. smiler2729 says:

    Halak’s the one on the move, wants too big a raise…

    If the Cup couldn’t be in Montreal, at least it went to a city and fans who appreciate it. 

    That parade was something else…helluva lot better than in Tampa Bay when the Flames attracted more fans for their return than the team that won did…

  45. nightmare_49 says:

    K – Yes.

  46. christophor says:

    I didn’t hear it here first, and I still don’t like the feel of it.

  47. Keith says:

    So is Tyler Pitlick any relation to Lance Pitlick who played for the Janitors?

  48. CHsam says:

    After watching Philly and Hawks, i’m now 100% convinced that we need North American Grit as Habs Prof would say. I hope PG deals the K bros this summer.

  49. CHsam says:

    Of course. Because the Canadiens are so good at giving away the good things that we have. We might even give them PK SUbban.

  50. Ian Cobb says:

    Tucson is just a bit to hot for me! Indoor rinks are great to cool down in.

  51. Habsforlife 1959 says:

    I say Carey Price might end up in Tampa with Guy Boucher as his coach? You heard it here first!!! Anything is possible????

  52. ABHabsfan says:

    MAB had 13 goals, did Breezer ever get that? I am not a MAB fan, but the dude can shoot. Just saying…

  53. camel_larry says:

    Anything on Muller?


    Go Habs Go!
