PuckCast, Vol. 5., No. 3 [Podcast]


It is a month into the NHL’s regular season and the Canadiens are in first place in the Northeast Division and survived the first part of a tough week on Tuesday with a 2-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks. The next test is Thursday night in Boston against a Bruins team that is four points behind the Habs, but have four games in hand heading into action on Wednesday night.

In today’s PuckCast, Pat Hickey, Dave Stubbs, Mike Boone and Kevin Mio discuss Carey Price’s play, the struggles on the power play, scorers who are not scoring and Andrei Markov’s return to action.

    yeah it will, still, jaro got pulled first

  4. VancouverHab says:

    Gionta & Gomez: 3 Stanley Cups, age 30-31. 61 mil for 5 years (approx.)

    Sedin Sisters: ZERO Stanley Cups, age 30. 60 mil for 5 years

    So for $200,000 a year for the five years we get three Stanley Cups to the Sedin’s zero.

    I think that this is the very example used by the Oxford English Dictionary to exemplify the word “bargain”.

  5. kempie says:

    I thoght they were pretty good.

  6. Mikey_39 says:

    Lol what rebuild? In order to rebuild you need to have draft picks

  7. NightRyder says:

    Luongo pooped himself in both elimination games, making their efforts moot.

    One year, they were both excellent in the last game. The next year, they got their doors blown off thanks to Luongo and it didn’t matter.

    I’d take them both in a heartbeat.

    Wouldn’t you trade them straight up for Gionta and Gomez?

    Because that’s what we’ve hitched our wagon to for the next half decade or so.

  8. Bill J says:


    Yeah winning feels good…

  9. CBrady12 says:

    OH SO NOW YOUR ACCUSING ME OF STARTING SH*T EH WELL YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT A WAR YOU GOT ONE BUDDY WHY I …hahaha just kidding!! man what a nice couple of days its been

  10. TomNickle says:

    How are they doing in elimination games? 

    That was my point.

  11. TomNickle says:

    Not that it’s a popularity contest.  But I’m fairly confident in saying that if you surveyed every HIO member and asked who the bigger jerk is between you and I.

    You’d win by a landslide.

    There’s a first time for everything!

  12. CBrady12 says:

    Lol guys, please, don’t flatter yourselves, I was just kidding around…no need to be rude…were all friends here

  13. Bill J says:

    Sorry wasn’t trying to “jump in”

    But am enjoying the civilized nature of this thread tonight lol.

    Just wanted to nip that “flame war” in the bud fast lol

  14. Everlasting1 says:

    You give a new definition to the term knee-jerk. You’re just an all out jerk on this site.

    Don’t pollute the water.

  15. NightRyder says:

    I’m pleased to say that I’ve moved past Gomez’s salary as a prime sticking point and on to the fact that he’s just not that good. So that gives me lots of new material!

    Some days I come here to engage in intelligent, well-reasoned and researched debate.

    Other times I like to stir the pot a little.

    It’s generally the newbies and/or the Pollyannas who take the biggest umbrage to my positions.

  16. CBrady12 says:

    Lol…I know, I was just teasin 😉

  17. avatar_58 says:

    Remember when they said we went “sideways”? Funny because an ECF last year and this years strong start…..doesn’t look like “sideways” to me.

  18. Bill J says:

    I think that is what he was trying to say.

    Does not take a great goaltender to win the Cup.

    That myth was dispelled…

    Oh & BTW wasn’t Hossa under JM too ?


  19. JD_ says:

    Come the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Burke’ll probably receive his own personal Tim Horton’s franchise.

  20. NightRyder says:

    Thanks Bill.

    I don’t mind if the stuff sails over their head.

  21. PrimeTime says:

    I trust he has said dumber things but that is #1 imo 

  22. JD_ says:

    McGuire is doin’ a whole lotta hand-holdin’ for Loafs fans tonight.


  23. SeriousFan09 says:

    So much for the hungrier, more competitive team.

    Bruins must be sending daily muffin baskets to the MLSE offices.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  24. NightRyder says:

    Categorically false.

    Being subjected out here to everything that is Canuck until it makes my physically ill, I can say the Sedins have both been very good in all situations, including playoffs.

    And combined they make less than Gionta and Gomez.

  25. Bill J says:

    Uhm …

    He was poking a jab at members who have “used” the word “suck” with respect to some of the players on this team.

    Price was the PRIME target in fact during the off-season, if you remember.

    Perhaps you missed the double-entendre. 😉

  26. Psycho29 says:

    Has he compared the Laffs defence to the “Big-3” tonight???

  27. Chuck says:

    They obviously weren’t meeting about improving their play. Perhaps they were trying to decide on a golf course to play.

    Centre Hice: Leafs face huge lawsuit

  28. PrimeTime says:

    I have no time for Neverlast…..couldn’t be bothered.

  29. wotever says:

    Hey, not that I’m watching I’m at work, he’s really a great goalie and will rebound but we knew he was prone to these kinds of games.  I’m sure he’ll come back strong.  Not that I care, he’s the Blues’ goalie now.  edit, just looked at the stats, looked like Conklin had a rough time too, each let in 4.. 

    Otherwise, talk about a battle for the basement, at least in the east, tonight…

    It’s just a game.

  30. TomNickle says:

    We add Cammalleri, Gomez, Gionta, Gill, Spacek and Moen and it’s a drastic overhaul.

    The Leafs add Versteeg, Armstrong, Phaneuf, Lebda, MaCarthur, Giguere and Brown and it’s a rebuild.


  31. JD_ says:

    McGuire just informed us that the Loafs have options.

    No mention of seppuku, however.

  32. NightRyder says:

    Sorry, didn’t mean to drag you down to my level.

    I was referring to the current sample size I use to illustrate supreme suckitude.

  33. avatar_58 says:

    Huh? Mcguire called it a “rebuild year” for the Leafs. Haven’t we heard that same line for like 5 years? It’s not a rebuild, otherwise we could consider the habs season a rebuild as well. Pretty good for a rebuild year eh? First in the east?

  34. gumper says:

    Looks like that players-only meeting the Leafs held today might have fallen a little short of the mark.

  35. PrimeTime says:

    They are so bad……I’m glad somethings never change.

  36. TomNickle says:

    They’ve gotten better but when the chips have been down they’ve gone into hiding.

  37. TomNickle says:

    Haha.  It’s lazy to count on everyone else’s blood boiling over the two most notable players, one for his salary and one for his position for your points of reference when frequenting HIO.

    But I applaud your consistency.

  38. gumper says:

    Cheers, brother:)

  39. NightRyder says:

    Both Sedins have been excellent in the last two playoffs. Luongo has caved in, not them.

    Where have you been? Reading Gomez’s press clippings from 2001?
