Price, Gionta take day off, Recchi spouts off

HIOplaceholder12

Goaltender Carey Price and captain Brian Gionta both took therapy days as the Canadiens held a practice in Brossard prior to their departure for Boston where they will play the Bruins Thursday night.

AUDIO: Ryan White | Scott Gomez | Mathieu Darche | P.K. Subban | Jeff Halpern | David Desharnais | Jacques Martin I and II

And Bruins’ Mark Recchi, on Boston radio Wednesday afternoon, says Habs embellished extent of Max Pacioretty’s concussion in a bid to have Zdeno Chara suspended. Thanks to Rod Francis of Team 990 for clipping and forwarding the audio.

    It says a lot when guys like Chara and Lucic come out and say the right things, like that they are glad that Patches is ok, and a veteran class act like recchi has the largest media brain fart of his life on the same day. I lost a lot of respect for him in that moment. Some things are bigger than hockey, you little runt. I hope White beats the living hell out of him.

    The key to the Boston game will be how aggressive the Habs are in
    making the Bruin netminder miserable in net. The Habs must control
    and dominate the dirty area around the Bruin net with constant tra-
    ffic that prevents a clean view of the shot and rapidly pounce on any
    lose puck. They have the skill and speed to do it but are they up to
    it?

    just hope we get a good game with no serious injuries.
    a black eye for recci, chara, marchand &/or richards would be fine.

    Clearly Recchi has lost it. I guess when you bring nothing to the table anymore, this is what one resorts to. Just retire already

  9. Kristopher7 says:

    Confusing stat. Leafs best scorer is Grabovski with 55 points, as opposed to the Habs’ top scorere, Pleks with 53.

    • Clay says:

      The shame…
      I’d still take Pleks over Grabovsky in a second though. Pleks brings a lot more to the table. However, we needed to be more patient with Grabs – we got rid of him for his youthful immaturity, but once he matured a little, he turned into a decent player.

      • Kristopher7 says:

        yeah, I agree Pleks all the way. It just caught me by surprise that “lulzy” grabovski, whom I was glad left the Habs, is doing decently well for himself in TO.

    • observer says:

      Grabovski has 28 goals and was acquired for nothing in a steal/trade from Gainey/Gauthier.

    • Jim Edson says:

      Bear in mind the “maintenance” issues with Grabowski!

      2 points isn’t enough for that baggage!

    The hit on Pax was murderous. No one would likely admit to a hit like that as intentional. The hit by Cook in comparison? WTF it was paper! The lack of league credibility is caught on video for all time. The two video’s side by side GEE! which one received the rest of season suspension? Big sucking vortex at the bottom of this league for all to see! By the way did not Cook the supposed villian apologize?

  12. Edmaster says:

    Ex Hab Recchi left Montreal with little respect towards this organization
    and in some ways rightly so, but now he’s a Bruin which, in Elvish, means “enemy”.
    Mark Recchi has earned the right to say whatever he wants. His numbers speak for themselves. He will probably go down as playing the most NHL games in the history of the NHL with 124 more games to go to surpass Mr. Howe. His 1530 points are currently 13th all time and if he is able to play those additional 124 games he will most likely end up in 9th or 10th all time. He scored 322 points wearing the Habs uniform for 346 games. He joined them in the middle of a season and left in the middle of a season. For the other three full seasons, he played all 82 games in all three of those seasons. He’s an Ironman to be reckoned with and will deservedly become a member of the Hall. Recchi left Montreal on a very sour note and he made this quite clear when he left. With Rejean Houle partly running the show at the time, Recchi had reason to be unhappy and correctly so.
    Having said all this, however, I have to admit that Recchi, not being afraid to speak his mind, sometimes says too much and it’s not always gospel. He can get under your skin, both on and off the ice. I respect the man as a hockey player but I’m a Hab fan thru and thru, so unfortunately Mr. Recchi, you and your Big Bad Cubs will have to be put down. It may not happen Thursday with our depleted team but beware, the Ghosts are still with us.

    Last season, Cammy & Scott had fantastic playoffs. I remember that both players had slow finishes last regular season. I think that some players earn their paycheck for their ability to raise their game in the playoffs. Gomez certainly has proven himself when the post season game style changes from the regular season. His style has always required a winger that attacks the net. Top six wingers don’t hold back and they go harder to the net during the playoffs.
    We are going to the playoffs. Considering injuries, it has been an incredibly good year for our club… This team needs to stay healthy and remain confident in their team defense, for the beginning of the playoffs.
    Go Habs Go.

  17. DarthWade says:

    I am appalled at Recchi. I thought the guy was a class act. Guess I was wrong. And you know damn well people believe this. I would love to see this guy get a big fine for this. But since the Bruins have a great pal in the NHL, I doubt it’ll happen. “But daddy, Markie’s a great guy! Don’t fine him!”

    “Oh ok son, go play with your crayons.”

    Even if this was true, how the heck does this help us? Wouldn’t it make more sense to go after Thomas?

  18. HardHabits says:

    I just listened to the Recchi interview and it was the interviewer that baited him. Embellished it has lots of connotations and it appears he means that he is talking about the Habs and Habs fans trying to get Chara suspended. Recchi should be smarter than falling for it though. He looks bad by going along with the commenter, rather than saying it wasn’t an embellishment but a serious injury. Still Recchi drops out of the respected hockey player category with that comment. IMO Habs fans over-reacted but with good cause. We all know the history of Chara and Pacioretty. We’ve all heard Jack Edwards’ play by play. We all saw the beantown beatdown. We all know Chara is a bully. We’ve all seen the Bruins resort to thuggery when losing a game. Recchi has to be a good team guy and stick up for his team-mates but in that instance he should have paused and thought before he replied.

  19. deuce6 says:

    Expected more from a guy like Recchi…Disappointing, but whatever…We will do our talking on the ice..Thanks for the fuel, old man..

  20. Rainrocket16 says:

    It is pretty sad a team has a talented player like Savard. As soon as he gets concussed and has a rough time regaining strength, they call him weak and want him gone! Yeah that’s a great franchise!

  21. Number31 says:

    Sorry Recchi ever wore the CH. Apparently you turn stupid when you become a Bruin. Now I see where Marchand gets it from.

    Maybe he should ask Savard or Bergeron what they think.

    Frankly it ain’t Pacioretty’s fault his head is tougher than theirs. If not for the BROKEN NECK, he’d be back playing.

    So…how come these guys never get fined for their crap? Oh right, the boss runs the show!

  22. Bill says:

    WOW Mark Recchi is an unbelievable tool. He erased any respect I ever had for him with that single idiotic comment. No class. Boston suits him.

  24. SLYDER says:

    I think the games I anticipate the most throughout the year are those against Western Conference teams. These are teams we rarely get to see (especially the american clubs) and are in most cases, very good teams.

    I also think these make for better “measuring stick” opportunities as the emotions that come with intense rivalries (Boston, Toronto, etc…) are put aside and the outcome is largely based on two colliding club identitys, gameplans and coaching styles.

    That being said, the rivalry games can do just as much to prepare teams for playoff hockey as those mentioned above.

    I’m le tired…bon soir.

  25. Psycho29 says:

    I had posted this question earlier tonight……

    Ok….Off subject but interesting trivia, especially for the old timers….
    I vaguely remembered going to a game at the Forum with my Dad, early 1970′s. I was sure the team the Habs faced had 2 guys on the ice at the same time wearing goalie masks….I was racking my brain, thinking I had lost my mind…..I finally found proof…..
    Now it wasn’t during a brawl, and it was both players wearing a fibreglass goalie mask….

    Anybody know which team and who the players were????

    Here is the link to the answer, just scroll up to the picture….it’s bizarre…(hope this works…
    http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=spgkAAAAIBAJ&sjid=oqAFAAAAIBAJ&dq=goaltender%20%7C%20goalie%20%7C%20netminder%20mask&pg=2436%2C110003

    It was Barclay Plager of the Blues, who had broken his nose five times that season (1970-71)

  26. gK_HabsFan says:

    Centers : GP G A +/- Pts
    1) T. Plekanec 69 21 32 14 53
    2) S. Gomez 72 7 28 -14 35
    3) D. Desharnais 35 8 14 1 22
    4) L. Eller 69 7 9 -3 16

    The team’s Centers… WOW!

    Don’t get me wrong, I love this team, but this scares me going into the playoffs and next season! The only way this team can survive is through lights out goaltending and some decent defence!

    The last time I checked, in the “new” NHL a team needs scoring to win! I’m all for JM and his coaching. In my opinion he’s been the best coach since the dreadful years of the 90′s, but his scheme stifles the offence. There is going to come a time in the next few years where in order for the Habs to become an elite team, they’re going to have to score more! I don’t have the solution, but something has to be done with Gomez. I understand his merit to the team, but it is extremely frustrating to see an expensive player ($8 million) like Gomez do the exact same thing night in and night out… and not produce! Love the guy and his personality… but for us to get over the hump… some thing has to be done.

    On many teams, Plekanec is a 2nd line center. But on this team, he has too many responsibilities! Even-strength, Power play… Penalty kill… Scoring…Playmaking… defending leads! It’s truly remarkable what he means to this Team. This is why, in my opinion, he’s never been able to truly produce in the playoffs, because he gets overworked.

    Realistically, my hope in two years is that Eller and Desharnais pick up their games immensely! That way we have three second lines, and have our goal scoring distributed evenly across three lines: 2A, 2B and 2C.

    In addition, with guys like Kristo and Leblanc only a few years away from making the NHL, and players like Pacioretty, Eller and Desharnais showing they can play in the NHL it’s gonna get exciting peeps!

    For next season, I would like to see PG acquire one or two decent sized wingers. I know it’s going to be tough with the current FA class, but i hope something gets done

    I’m not a big fan of the “huge featured article at the top” on the home page. It like marginalizes all articles but the one up there in your face.

    Gizmodo did the same thing, it’s like they’re force-feeding you the article they want to promote.

    ALSO: it would be cool to have designated pics for certain things. Like “About Last Night” could have its own logo, or something… Then you can spot it immediately and it doesn’t blend in with all the other ones. I dunno.

    Disappointing coming from Recchi. I expect more from a seasoned vet like that. Especially since he played for us for 5 years. To take such a serious injury and make it seem as if there was some sort of foul play. It’s simply classless. Very poor form, and surprising coming from Recchi. I guess I misjudged him, really disappointing.

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

    It goes to confirm that there is something about the air or water in Boston which affects the connection between brain and mouth.

    Best example is these two Sports Hub “one trick pony” morons!

    Next Best are Marchand and Recchi!

    But maybe in the case of Recchi its symptomatic of early onset dementia at his age!

Perfect time to make Muller your head coach with a franco assistant. Why could this not be possible??

    “Obviously I’m glad that he’s doing much better and that’s he’s going to be probably playing, based on reports,” Chara told reporters. “I’m glad that he’s going to be fine and that’s good news.”

    Still not sure about this thumbs up, thumbs down thing. Some posters worried it could turn into a popularity contest. I’m not concerned – to know me is to love me – but I fear some HIO contributors are not getting a fair shake. Somebody posted ‘Test’ and got two thumbs up, and 14 thumbs down. Tough crowd. (And, to be honest, I gave it a thumbs down myself. The point of the post was weakly argued and it made for exhausting reading.)
    But up-down turns everything into black-white and doesn’t allow for nuanced evaluations of a poster’s contribution to a rather enjoyable forum. My suggestion is that we use the online rating system theatres use for movies they’re showing. Allow people to pick a number from 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 and the wonderful computer that handles this website could give a running average. That way, people could say of a post that it wasn’t half-bad rather than dismiss it altogether, or, in my case, they could mutter, Geez, I wish the numbers went up to 11. We won’t do that but we’ll add a zero just to accommodate the anti-[fill in the poster you hate] crowd that seems to make up a large segment of this community.
    If nothing changes, the critiquing method we have is still light-years ahead of what the Bruin fans use: thumbs in, thumbs out.

          I’ve developed a different mindset. I look upon each rating as the score of a game, with Thumbs Up being the visitors, and Thumbs Down being the home side.

      I had a lot of respect for ex- hab Recchi even though he’s a Bruin. A real gentleman and professional …I thought …well not anymore ..how can a 40 +yr old pro make such stupid and disrespectful comments about another injured fellow pro hockey player ..comments from a veteran player like this , only prove there is little or no respect amongst NHL players towards each other …

    • Spartan117 says:

      And just to remind readers (but not to brag that I got to talk to him… yes yes I know it is impressive).. Dr. Mulder said that a concussion gets you out for 1 week, no questions… unconscious for more than 5 mins gets you 2 weeks NO QUESTIONS. But the real issue is a vertebrae takes a minimum of 6 weeks to heal, so count 6 weeks from time of injury and then add a +.. because it is 6 weeks minimum.

    Seems like Ruins fans want the Habs to get bigger goonier players…why would they? when they’ve bitch slapped them all over the ice when it comes to playing hockey and “winning”(something the Ruins know nothing of). But hey they did beat up two geezers and lil guy. 3 for 6 in fights last time in beantown yet somehow it was a beatdown?

    I think Recchi is playing a mind game with the Habs, the media & the fans. Goading them into making the first move and taking a dumb penalty.

    I think the Habs need to come with the mindset of playing THEIR style of game, and never-mind Boston’s goonery. Let Boston show their true colors, with ALL these important people watching so closely.

    Like I said, mind game… I hope the Habs see through it. :)

    Ummm, did anyone else think the second they heard him flapping his lips on the radio that he sounded much more closer to retirement and even more closer to working for CBC HNIC ?

    He is not the knuckle dragger that pretty much hires you on the spot , but being a booin, and crying like one , puts his resume at the “top” of the pile anyway…..Best of luck Markus !!

    The MAX tweeting comments now ??? OK, The kid at that point could have never played again for all we knew, and the thousands of fans and well wishers were just “kinda” interested if he was alive and walking !! Movie at home / theatres….who CARES!!! If it wasnt for the after shock of the moment , he probably would have never opened a twitter account. With todays social media…get used to hearing were players are when you normally wouldnt. Lucic can say what he wants , he probably wouldnt know how start a twitter account if he had too ! Let alone log online :P

  46. The Cat says:

    It was a classless remark by Recchi eventhough he appears to have been goaded into saying it, but it wasnt that smart of Pax to go to a movie and tweet about it. Go to the movie -fine…but you dont have to tell the world about it via tweeter, thats like having a mini press conference.

    [Disclaimer]: I’m a hockey fan. I care about the habs, but probably not as much as you.

    so good night goon’s faithful just a last word of advice:
    Go pay Chara a visit at the zoo … throw him an apple… just be careful not give him a little shove in the back while you are doing it because he WILL start chasing you around and try to take your head off even though he is “not known” to be a violent primate!

  48. ProHabs says:

    What happened to the “new” feature in red that used to let us know new posts when we refresh. Bring that back ASAP please Stubbs and Boone.

  49. Natrous says:

    I love how disgruntled fans of other teams feel the need to comment on the fan sites belonging to rival teams – it really validates their needs and wants as underachieving slaves to a lesser franchise when they come here to gripe about trivial things like lack of goons on the Habs roster. Keep up the good work, *uckHead72!

  50. Mothstoflame says:

    Funny how the last 3 games we played Boston, they have nothing but trash talk to say on TSN. Marchand was practically talking out his nose before last game ;). With constant injuries all season long, front and back, we are 3 points back of First of our division, we took the series and were takin 2 more points, and has kaberle even scored a goal yet?

  51. The Cat says:

    Why do players tweet, no good will ever come out of that.

    [Disclaimer]: I’m a hockey fan. I care about the habs, but probably not as much as you.

    Anyone have any suggestions about what we need come free agent time this summer?
    Just looking over the list.
    Doesn’t look very appetizing.
    Right wingers all in 35+ bracket.

    Go Habs Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  53. RiverviewCanadien says:

    Well I will say this about Recchi. He basically called out the Canadiens, not Pacioretty alone. He disgraced the Bleu Blanc Rouge.

    I want his head on a platter!

    Stating that the Canadiens organization embellished the concussion is absurd, and unfounded. He makes it sound like the broken neck is none existent, it’s all an act!

    Mind games right now, and the media feeding it. Recchi calling out the Habs, Chara looking like an angel. Big setup for the game.

    Boy I wish some of the players were mic’d for tomorrow night.

    • ProHabs says:

      I would love to see the team call up Bonneau, Conboy, Henry and anyone else that could fight at around 4:00 tomorrow night and just turn tomorrows game into an old fashion duster. But I think the team can only call up 1 more player.

      • PuckHead72 says:

        They’d still lose the fight battle. Sorry.

        • Natrous says:

          maybe they’d lose the battle, maybe not, but the Habs will still win the season series. Joke’s on you, *uckHead72.

          • PuckHead72 says:

            Gee that’s great winning the season series. What trophy do you get for that again? I forget.

          • Natrous says:

            What trophy you ask? Definitely not the one that the Bruins last won in ’72 lol.. but owning you in general is nice..

        • ProHabs says:

          Maybe but a line up of Henry, Bonneau, Conboy, White, Moen, Mara could at least put up a fight with most of the Bruins. Not much you can do with Lucic and Chara as nobody in the league alone can really take on those guys. But who is to say 2 Habs can’t team up and take down a Bruin. Remember, the Bruins have turned this league into WWF so anything goes.

          • PuckHead72 says:

            …And the Canadiens have been turning the league into an Olympic gymnastic meet for 40 years. Flop, Tumble, and Roll. Anything to get the call baby!!

        • ProHabs says:

          Send it to the Bruins locker room.

        • KenD29 says:

          Just curious, what do the Bruins have to show for winning a fight here or there?! And the end of the day, how many Stanley Cup banners are hanging from the old Garden now TD Trust?!

          Tonight we skate with them, Tonight is our night!

    • Sportfan says:

      Yeah Recchi is pathetic with what he said I am very disappointed in him he played for our organization and you would figure that old fart would no better retire already we are done with you

    • Natrous says:

      For an NHL hockey player, let alone a former Hab, to say something so rediculous to the media about an injury that involves a broken neck, simply makes me wonder where Mark Recchi’s head is at… this is not a joke. The hit that he witnessed first hand is suddenly an embellishment? His comment is the epidome of what is wrong with the NHL – take the headshot without thinking twice and deal with the consequences when you retire. That’s laughable.

      • habssince1909 says:

        Would Pacioretty have to be paralyzed or killed before it would not be considered an “embellishment”? How sad for a comment like that to come from a player that I always admired. I thought someone of Recchi’s stature would have more class and common sense, especially someone who is an ex-Hab.

  54. Psycho29 says:

    Ok….Off subject but interesting trivia, especially for the old timers….
    I vaguely remembered going to a game at the Forum with my Dad, early 1970′s. I was sure the team the Habs faced had 2 guys on the ice at the same time wearing goalie masks….I was racking my brain, thinking I had lost my mind…..I finally found proof…..
    Now it wasn’t during a brawl, and it was both players wearing a fibreglass goalie mask….

    Anybody know which team and who the players were????

  55. king ddd says:

    looking forward to the game tomorrow. hope the boys can run up the score on flopper. i hope pleks doesn’t rush it, if he need his rest he should do so and come back healthy in time for the playoffs. and is soaps back.?

    They could use a “Newer Comments” link at the top of the comments as well as the bottom, just like the old site.

  58. joeybarrie says:

    Ouch, good one. You burned us real good.
    I don’t get this whole Pac is faking thing. Why would he miss games when he is doing so well? I guess there really are more idiots out there than i thought.
    WORST PART is this idiot think getting replies to his useless post is a good thing. As if they have won something. PATHETIC. I would say get a life, but I like you the way you are, a hidden Leafs fan desperately praying the Habs lose, cause thats the best thing you can hope for with the Leafs.
    There really should be a LEAFS CUP so when they finish 9th they get their WE WON trophy. Hey if the Leafs joined the AHL I bet they might be able to make post season play…

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

  59. 100HABS says:

    For whoever hasn’t read the Recchi article on TSN:
    http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=359271
    I used to respect the man, but now I don’t. Even if he were right, it is so stupid to inflame the Habs that way.

    I liked him before for his grit and tenacity but also because he is the last NHL player of my age. When he’s retired, I’ll be older than all NHL players. There’s a wake up call for you.

    • Clay says:

      One quote, with no context, and you are willing to jump all over the man. Gotcha “journalism” at its finest.
      I’m not saying that his comments were acceptable – what I am saying is that we need to put it in context, and read (or hear) the comments that surrounded it before we start up a lynch mob.

      HIO Forever!

      • 100HABS says:

        While you were writing your comment I was actually listening to the interview. I think Recchi’s being a real homer and he did say that we were embellishing his concussion.
        I think he’s lying. Recchi knows that Chara push his head into the corner on purpose. Recchi knows Chara lied when he said he didn’t realise where he was on the ice.
        So I no longer like Recchi. I’m allowed. I have a right to stop liking and respecting the player and the person.

        • Clay says:

          Of course you are allowed. I commented based solely on the link you provided. If you have more information, I would be happy to see it, and form an educated opinion. In fact, that was my whole point.

        • Northern Sooner says:

          I’m with you 100Habs. The elephant in the room is that ALL the Bruins and ALL the Habs know Chara did it on purpose.

          But they have to go through this bullshit Kabuki dance with the media because the League is incompetent and did nothing about the hit. So Recchi finds himself going along with the Boston media ¨embellishment¨story even thought he should know better and it makes him look bad.

          The Boston media is a joke. The Boston fans are a bigger joke and Bettman, Campbell and Murphy are the biggest joke of all.

      • LA Loyalist says:

        I just heard the Recchi interview – the Boston Interviewer says “Does it bother you that they embellished…?” And Recchi says… “Well yeah….

        The Interviewer totally set Rechhi up, but Recchi is dumber than dirt to fall it. Maybe too many head shots.

        Disgusting.

  60. KenD29 says:

    Should be good to see the Habs light up the lamp behind Thomas/Rask for yet another win.

    Tonight we skate with them, Tonight is our night!

    So how does one get back a picture on the profile?
