Shoot me now!

Please God, let this not be true.

Larry Brooks of the New York Post, who’s well plugged-in, is reporting there may be a LeBron James knockoff television special focused on Ilya Kovalchuk’s decision.

On the other hand, you can see the possibilities of a commercial tie-in:

Glad bags strong enough for whatever chunks we’ll be blowing.

    Getting pretty creative yourself!

     

    Go Habs Go!

    Eastern conference finalists are not contenders?

     

    Go Habs Go!

    Yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

  5. SeriousFan09 says:

    The season hasn’t even started yet, almost no Eastern teams have made any significant moves to upgrade their rosters and we’ve put an elite prospect on our blue line while putting more depth at forward. I can’t see how we’re ruled out of contending when none of our opponents have really gotten stronger except Boston.

    Where you put “and counting” there made it redundant.

    “And counting” is implied by the plus symbol after the 17.

    You’re welcome.

     

    Go Habs Go!

  7. Toe Blake says:

    Actually, I am having a much better time at the seances on RADIO FREE TIMO (RFT). Timo, Tony242 and Sheldon know the real deal with this team. The Habs don’t need ghosts, they need some size and goaltending. They used to have the latter.

    “smartypants”

    Ugh, I just puked.

    And to think, we were having so much fun. Then you had to go and get juvenile on me.

    sigh

    Keep up the good work.

    So you haunt these pages but you wont haunt the Bell Centre. We need some help here. We can’t get all the best Frenchmen anymore and now there’s this thing called a salary cap and we have a little napolean as commissioner. We’re screwed Toe!!!

    Here are the directions:

    1. Head northeast on Rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest toward Rue Lambert Closse 1.1 km
    2. Turn right at Rue de la Montagne 400 m
    3. Turn left at Rue de la Gauchetière Ouest 45 m

    It’s the building called the Bell Centre.

  11. ZepFan2 says:

    Aww, thanks Elton.

    A) Re Zepfan’s “grammatical error” where you pointed out he wasn’t using quotation marks correctly: That’s a punctuation error.

    B) For somebody who likes to point out grammatical errors (albeit ones that are actually punctuation marks), you sure make a lot yourself. Commas still exist, you know.

     

    Go Habs Go!

    I find comfort because I watched every game in the Juha Lind/Chad Kilger years!

    But that bar isn’t very high ethier!

     

    The last time the leafs won the cup it was still just a bowl!!

    Woo, woo! Yer such a smartypants!

    Repost @ TripleX

    Sorry kind of just skimmed your comment and didn’t see the question.

    Your 100% right the players would not accept a contraction of any of the leagues teams because it would mean less jobs.

    But I believe Ian was commenting in a “what if” scenario, not really looking at the situation from the player’s standpoint, but how to improve the league for us fans.

    I don’t have anything against you, I just find sometimes you seem to be arguing just for the sake of, well.. arguing

    And don’t be so serious all the time! ;)

    And to your P.S: I know what the cup looked like in 67! try to laugh every now and then, it’s good for you! ;)

     

     The last time the leafs won the cup it was still just a bowl!!

    The last time the leafs won the cup goalies didn’t wear masks!!!

    The last time the leafs won the cup players didn’t wear helmets!!!

    The last time the leafs won the cup sticks didn’t have curves!!!

    The last time the leafs won the cup TV was black and white!!!

    The last time the leafs won the cup it was 2 years before woodstock!!! 

    The last time the leafs won the cup there were 6 teams in the league!!

  21. The Capitalist Pig says:

    Great catch Mr. Spellcheck. How much do you charge per hour?

  22. camel_larry says:

    If by “for those” you mean me, feel free to say so.

    And really, if you expect the habs to win the cup every year, lower your expectations.

    Yes, I just said that.

    The habs of the 70′s were a once in a lifetime thing. Teams take turns having dynasties.

    Heck, I no longer have expectations at all, and it’s made watching hockey less stressful and more enjoyable. Sure, I have opinions on how the team could be better, and yes, I would like it to be, but I take what we as Habs fans (not specifically Halak fans: Habs fans) can get and cheer for it, and it works.

     

    Go Habs Go!

    Oops Ive said too much already!

    Well if were going to talk grammar, then I feel obliged to tell you that its riposte not reposte.

  26. ZepFan2 says:

    Well to be fair. There are a significant number of Leaf fans already here.

    So, in reply to your post. I say, Let’s not and say we did, m’kay meowrade!

    Burke is an idoit, and anything he says should be considered for entertianment value only.

  30. The Capitalist Pig says:

    Might want to revisit that chapter on using quotation marks in yer grammar book.

  31. camel_larry says:

    Who is this “he” you speak of?

     

    Go Habs Go!

  32. The Cat says:

    Thats what I was thinking.

  33. The Capitalist Pig says:

    I bet old Toe is rolling in his grave after that reposte!

  34. ZepFan2 says:

    There was no drilling involved. Or is that like a ‘donkey punch’?

  38. camel_larry says:

    My main post was not singleing anybody out. When you single people out they get defensive.

    My second post was singling TripleX out, so he would get defensive, and thusly reply so I could hear some reasoning. Which he has not done.

     

    Go Habs Go!

  39. HabFab says:

    If it was on purpose…good one!

  40. The Capitalist Pig says:

    If you don’t start loving the Habs right this second, I’m just gonna die!

  41. SeriousFan09 says:

    Some of us aren’t jumping ship and declaring the team a lost cause because our favourite player left either, note my signature.
