Never in doubt!
And a salute to the fans
The Oracle at Delphi has spoken.
to be or not to be ,that is the question ..whether it is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune , or to arm againstt a sea of troubles and by so opposing end them……
once again you nailed it Boone, we NEED to start strong, first goal is huge, I would think we should get our share of Power play opportunities, the NHL owes us from the last time we played these jokers on our final Saturday night of the year, Mikey Ryder had us in good shape after 2 periods, then the Leafs PowerPlay Festival at the ACC kicked into high gear and we got screwed by that big goof Sundin and company…. I’m goin with 5-2 Habs with 3 for Cammy, I know it’s a stretch but who knows, I do know that I want the WIN tonight, not an OT/SHOOTOUT LOSS
Show up Boys
Beat those Friggin Leafs…PLEASE!!!!
Looking into my crystal ball, I see the Habs backing into the playoffs on Sunday afternoon and Philly being the odd team out on the tie-breaker formula. Unfortunately, the misery will be prolonged for another day.
Betcha Philly is regretting that they passed up on Halak. The way the Hab’s season has gone, I wouldn’t be surprised if an unlikely player (Price) will be the team’s MVP in the playoffs.
Man am I ever tired of this scenario the Habs have been putting to us Fans over and over ,again and again! So tonight’s GONNA BE DIFFERENT I TELL YOU cause I’m putting a BIG PIECE OF PLEXIGLAS in front of the big screen and then shrink wrapping the f**ker and the some chain link fencing and a poly floor and then a 24 case of wobbly beer bullets(Molsons,lol)………
No Kidding. Now I want a lobotomy.
That picture is priceless Mr. Boone lol! As far as the game goes tonight, I am going to start drinking earlier than usual on a saturday because if I wait until puck drop time, my nerves will be too shot to even hold my Canadiens beer stein steady enough to be able to drink it without spilling it all over the floor. Making Gionta captain on the last game of the season would be putting an awfully lot of pressure on a guy with a game of such importance don’t you think? I’m not against it mind you, it’s that we have gone all season without one and I don’t see the point of choosing one now I guess.
Don’t sweat tonight’s game Superman in the guise of John Tortarella is gonna get the Habs to the show. It’s a thankless job, but Jacques Martin can’t do it!
81 out of 82 games without having a Captain on the team and Tinkerbell will come down to put that special magic “C” on Gointa’s jersey? No disrespect for Gionta, but the last game of the season to name a Captain?
Wow! This should have been scripted into another Habs’ motion picture! I
Will Tinkerbell then cast a magic spell on us so that we all love each other and forgive the players for the ugly sesaon they have shown on the ice ?
Sorry, I don’t agree naming a Captain tonight or if we make the playoffs, too late in the season in my opinion.
Great marketing ploy by the Club if they do this but I don’t buy into what they are trying to prove tonight?
Sell more jersey with a C on the crest of a Gorges, Gionta, Gill, Cammallerri, etc.?
Shame on the club.
“We will win the Cup one day only with ? in the nets “
Gionta is our best hope for C. Leads by example and wins over everybody who sees his stellar play. Hope you’re friend is right!
In anticipation of another lame effort by our Habs tonight, I was thinking of former Leafs who have played for Montreal and came up with my top five:
1) Mahovlich, 2) Dickie Duff, 3) Vincent Damphousse, 4) Doug Gilmour, 5) Yannick Perreault
What would your rankings be?
As for Habs who went on to play for the Leafs:
1) Jacques Plante, 2) Dickie Moore, 3) Kirk Muller, 4) Mathieu Schneider, 5) Shayne Corson
Granted by the time Plante and Moore played in Toronto they were completely washed up and Corson used to drive me crazy in whichever uniform he wore but I don’t think the Leafs ever got the better of the trade or acquisition when dealing with Montreal’s castoffs.
Anyway, it was great to remember the Big M making such an impact in Montreal and when I was a kid, I though Dick Duff was a good, all round player. Vinnie had his moments and while Gilmour and Perreault were marginal in the sense that they weren’t around that long in Montreal, they both came in a did a good job while they were with the Habs.
I could add Komisarek and Grabowski just ’cause it was good to see them both leave Montreal.
It’s a sad day when I have to root for the Flyers but I can’t count on my Habs for a win tonight. They’re going to be so tight that they won’t be able to fart.
If JM wasn’t 67 years old he’d probably have assumed the pit bull’s position already. A Leafs win would make for some interesting moments on l’antichambre and morning radio. Here’s to avoiding that. As for captain, Gorges. “A” to Gionta and Moen. Let’s have some balls running the show. I agree with whoever posted that tonight would be the time to name a Captain, quietly, without trying to make it look like the next Governor General is being crowned.
With these Habs, what sucks is that they like to make you wait anxiously. I’m telling you tonight will be a blowaout. It’s like the eveyso hyped up Canada-Russia game, we all know how that ended! Chill.
I’m deep in enemy territory and what makes it more annoying are my cousins who don’t watch hockey at all and who just live for Toronto beating Montreal. Ugh!
“I gotta feeling…that tonight’s gonna be a good night!”
I’m not surprised Boone, I have been saying this since Feburary when I noticed who they were playing in the last game. I’m in Leaf land so I bought a fresh pack of razor blades just in case….lol! At least we still have a first round pick and watching the lottery on Tuesday will actually be enjoyable….they should make Burke attend it. Go Habs Go! ”You miss 100% of the shots you never take.” – Wayne Gretzky
J hope someone can ut the puck in the net.
Boone, this puts a whole new meaning to “Knick–knack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone”
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Thanks for the visual of Hal Gill in big-girl panties.
Im gonna hurl!!
Something tells me the Habs will have “gotta get them to OT” written all over their game.
What’s the point really? Does anybody here really think the Habs can win a playoff series? I’ll watch, but then again we all stretch our necks for traffic accidents and other train wrecks.
The attitude that will lose tonight is: “Just gotta get them to OT! Just gotta get them to OT!!!”
The attitude that will win it: “Murder them.”
Unfortunately, I think the Leafs will come out with the latter attitude, and the Habs might not.
“love cannot drown truth, Nefertiti”
Putting a “C” on someone would be fantastic, and about time. Putting a “C” on Gionta, would be the perfect choice, IMO. However, would it be fair to lay that on anyone at this point? One game to go, and either playoffs or the golf course looming? By the way, if you have not seen the fans tribute to Modano in Dallas last night (possibly his final game in front of the home fans) you must watch it. Modano was always all class, again, IMO.
Lets hope we get some heart out of the boys tonight. New blog post by the way! Carolina review & Toronto preview.
http://www.driveto25.weebly.com <—-My Blog, I’d love to know what you guys think!
That picture is disgusting. Like wtf is that? looks his back is broken in 5 places. Nasty.
Anyways, hoping for a win tonight. They owe it to us.
Gionta has emerged as Captain material…I was on the fence about him before, but he deserves it.
Go Habs Go…please.
A freakin’ captain would be nice… and Gionta would be perfect.
I don’t feel good about this. If I feel flat, maybe the boys do too?
I live in enemy territory. I’ve had my Habs flag ripped off my car sveral times. If they lose tonight, it’ll be a looong summer and my neighbors will NEVER let me forget it. Our boys better put on their big girl panties and win this sucker or else.
unlike last time when leafs were fighting just as hard to make it ,this time they are out of it , so hit him hard and early and by the second they will be packing for an early start of vacation.
The laffs need to be shown how suckulent they are. This is a gut check game. Let’s see who shows up.
Correction Boone: “The league’s loudest building”.
All i can say about this game is FML.
