    Call Rogers and demand the service. It took me more than a year to get enough people to call Cogeco cable and demand the service. We finally got a call from the president of the co. telling us that we were going to get it soon. ,And voila now we do.

  3. Chorske says:

    Uh, since when is 5’10-5’11 small? I’m with you on the others, and SeriousFan is right about some of these heights being sheer fiction. But 5’11 is not small. It’s league average, for petes sakes.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    …just kidding. There’s no way that I could make the game this weekend.

    The one thing I swore never to say.

    No deal, sorry.

    I got AK at under 64.5 pts, with Triple X and Tom Nickle.

  8. montreal1 says:

    add the where abouts of timo and you got yourself a deal

  9. SmartDog says:

    Is that a giant mushroom or are you just happy to see me?

    Sorry.. I don’t know why this cracks me up so much! LOL

    Listen to the SmartDog. He knows his poop!

  10. mike g says:

    I’ll even include the option of unlimited posts..

    I think that’s $2.95 per month.

  11. Malreg says:

    What row?  It’s pretty much just a few rows difference when compared to the Blue’s.  $155 for the pair is about double the face-value, FYI.  Not much of a deal.

  12. montreal1 says:

    throw me a number

  13. kotsopoulos says:

    hi there,


    how much would you be selling them for?

  14. SeriousFan09 says:

    Desharnais used to be 5’5″, than he became 5’6″, now he’s 5’7″? Methinks someone is getting measured with his skates on.

  16. montreal1 says:

    i’ve heard great things about the greys, plenty of drunks and familys!

  17. montreal1 says:

    Great Seats at the habs end where they score twice and you can smell the sweat

  18. WarHero says:

    Agreed 🙂


    Never judge another man’s decision poor until you actually have proof of it failing!

  19. Mattyleg says:

    Never sat in the greys, are the seats significantly better than the blues?

    Got an offer for a pair of seats at $155 for a regular-season game.

    Hey, that’s my cousin!  Sure’s smart too but he’s all business and no fun.

    Listen to the SmartDog. He knows his poop!

  21. avatar_58 says:

    Sure! Can you pay my way to Montreal too?

  22. petrov14 says:

    Desharnais 5-7

    Aaron Palushaj 5-11

    Ryan Russell  5-10

    Olivier Fortier  5-11

    Gabriel Dumont  5-9

    Brendan Gallagher  5-9

    Yea I agree we have some big guys too but im sure a few of these guys will be moved. Or maybe i’ve bought into the small hype. But I honestly dont think were a “small team” Just some of our better players are smallish.

  26. Chuck says:

    I think that you’re stuck on “repeat”.

  27. mike g says:

    I’ll pay you a lifetime membership to HIO for the pair.

  28. SeriousFan09 says:

    1. Leblanc

    2. Pouliot

    3. Depends on player progression, Leblanc, Avtsin, Kristo and Eller are all very young and their hits (or lack of one in Kristo’s case) will likely give the organization an idea of what they’ll offer.

    4. Won’t know until I see him, but he didn’t blow me away in the Hammer last year.

    5. Avtsin, I love the scouting reports on this kid.

    6. Don’t drink alcohol, but sometimes I crack open a Pepsi.

  29. Chorske says:

    1. Whoops, no Avtsin tonight. Tinordi, then.

  30. montreal1 says:

    i got 2 tickets to this sundays preseason game, section 122 row EE, anybody interested??

  31. Chorske says:

    3. I can see us trading some small forwards in the system.

    Can we stop with the small forwards thing? If you look at the prospects that came to camp, there were maybe TWO that were under 6′. We have ONE major prospect who can be considered small- Gallagher- and he could well end up being a future Gionta, because although he was cut from camp there is no doubting his heart and skill.

    Seriously, go back to this thread, look at the heights and weights, and tell me that this team has a future size problem.

  32. Chuck says:

    I wish that game in Quebec City would have been against the Av’s.

  33. HFX-HabFan says:

    1- Leblanc

    2- It’s the first game of the pre-season.  This hardly matters.

    3- You can never have too many prospects.

    4- Not in Montreal.

    5- Ryan White.

    6- Orange juice.

  34. Danno says:

    Or maybe this cute little fellow. I call him Bubbles

  35. petrov14 says:

    1. Leblanc

    2. AK46

    3. I can see us trading some small forwards in the system.

    4. yes, but wont make the team full-time.

    5. Palushaj

    6. Keiths

    In 4 hours.  I like 4 hours more than 4 months that I waited for this start of the hockey season.

    sault ste marie too.

    is this just a preview to get suckered in?

    since my sister and i have both moved out, my mom canceled rds. however i am 9 hours away from her now, so it’d be pretty hard to run over to watch the game.
