They can’t win in the west

Not even against the 30th team in a 30-team league.

    I dont think this will last long. Its terrible.

  2. lemess says:

    I’ve got the same stick with Gordie and The Rockets signatures on it,  I have always wondered what it would be worth (not that I would sell it)

  3. AH says:

    Hello everyone! I AM PUMPED! Going to the game, haven’t seen the boys play live for years. (Been pretty much useless here at work all day haha!). Should be a great time, me and my son (unfortunately he’s an Oiler fan). I told him he now gets his first opportunity to see and hear the Habs fans out cheer the Oiler fans in their own building! An Oiler beatdown will make for a perfect evening!

    Enjoy the game everyone!

    GO HABS GO!!!!

  4. habs001 says:

    hopefully a good road win..but there are only 4 teams with fewer road points than we have

  5. 24 Cups says:

    If you’re an Oiler fan, the good news is that Khabibulin won his start on Tuesday against Dallas by a score of 4-1.

    If you’re a Hab fan, the good news is that Khabibulin’s win was his first of 2011.  In fact, he had lost 14 straight (before Tuesday) going all the way back to Dec 16th.

    There are never any excuses for not taking two points from a bottom-feeder. The Oilers rank 30th in terms of their home record, PP and PK stats.   It’s also our first contest of the western swing which should be the easiest game to win.

  6. oshawahabsfan says:

    The boys better be ready for this game, you know the opposition will be up for an all Canadian matchup. With the game being on CBC also, it’d be nice to force them to say something positive about Montreal by us whooping the Oilers. Playing on the best ice tonight should be ideal for our team, skate skate skate

  7. Rugger says:

    I see a sweep of Western Canada coming, they have not seen much of “the New Price”, PK Superstar or A Habs team with a power forward(MaxPac).  We will shock and awe them with our finesse and the system.

  8. king ddd says:

    holy.. im watching raonic vs stepanek. boy the kid is a beast. hes owning stepanek in serving. and his serves are deadly

  9. Danno says:

    It’s our mission to ensure the Oilers get a good draft pick. Make it so boys.

  10. G-Man says:

    Habs always (pretty much) have a tough time against the Oilers. Since 1981, as a matter of fact.

  11. Captain aHab says:

    Saw him at the Aussie open and he was taking a lot of big chances but yes his serve is deadly when on.

  12. Ayan_SB says:

    The game’s also on CBC by the way.

  13. RJB says:

    Home for my reading week, get to watch a game in HD for once!!! Pretty pumped for tonight!! Lets hope for a good tilly!!!

  14. Ian Cobb says:

    Good, so we are back to the old format again. Nice that someone remembered to put the JUMP TO COMMENT Form LINK on the top this time.

  15. Ian Cobb says:

    National or  just in Alberta, ??

  16. sag says:

    I bet you the live blog change was PK’s suggestion!

    My reverse jinx statement is that I think this game is going to turn into a track meet.  This will not be good for our D. 

    I know it wasn’t hi-light reel spectacular, but the goal Maxpac’s crammed in the side pocket the other night was one of my favourite in a while.  “Get out of my way” players have been missing from the Habs roster for far too long. He’s definitely an untouchable.  Then again, 1995 wasn’t just a bad dream.    

    If you haven’t seen this video of him jumping, check it out.  He could almost jump on top of Gionta’s head!

    Coast to coast! A Hockey night in Canada special!

    Hey Ian,

    Im from Bellevegas but haven’t been home to see a Bulls game yet this year.  What do you think ablut PK’s brother’s potential? 

  19. larisalapointe says:

    Memorabilia question. I came accross a mini wooden CCM hockey stick with Yvan Cournoyer’s and Jacques Lemaire’s autograph.

    Any value other than sentimental?

  20. billylove says:

    Not sure of current value but it will increase in time.

  21. J.Ambrose.OBrien says:

    On here in Mtl.

    I remember Dec. 31, 1975

  22. billylove says:

    Would love to see Isles win and a move into first to start the swing! 

  23. PeterD says:

    Does anyone know where I could find a complete list of rosters for the upcoming Montreal/Calgary Alumni game on Sat. Feb. 19th?

    I think it is to be broadcast on CBC and have only seen a teaser of a few names of Habs players that are to play.

    Do you have access to this info Mr. Boone?

  24. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    Man, Mr. Stubbs is on a roll with these tweets!

  25. Les-Habitants says:

    Ohhhh, technology!  This chat should be interesting.

  26. habstrinifan says:

    Hey Boone I think Edmonton historically gives us more trouble than Vancouver.. which is why I fear tonight’s game.

    Heritage game.. methinks Calgary is plain too HOT.

  27. Drew42 says:

    This is the only thing I could find…

    looks like the Habs a short a few players… and a goalie (correct me if I’m wrong… lol)



  28. HabsFanInVictoria says:

    Vancouver dominates Montreal in Vancouver.  I know cause I’ve been there year after year, blowout after blowout.

  29. Drew42 says:

    I’ve gone every year since moving out here 5 years ago, except last year (and was glad I missed it)…

    But I’ve got my tickets for next week’s tilt! Its going to be one crazy hockey weekend for me… flying into Calgary tomorrow night for the Alumni game and the Heritage classic, then back to Vancouver on Monday and the Canucks-Habs game Tuesday night! WOOOO!

  30. Klondike Habs Fan says:

    I am flying down with the family to VAn to see the game too. For the cost of the tickets, flights and hotels for me and my three girls,  i just know that the boys will pull the vancouver game off.

    I’ll be in 307, big Yukoner with three young blond girls. Cheering loud.

  31. Drew42 says:

    Awesome! I’ll take that luck on our side, especially if I end up bringing my coworker who is a big Canuck’s fan… haha.

    I’ll have to double check my tix and see where I am (all I know is that I’m somewhere up in the rafters) and I’ll let you know.

    Three young blond girls you say…. How young? lol (joking :P)


    Lets hope they start this trip off with a bang tonight though!



  32. larisalapointe says:

    Gordie and Rocket!!! Worth way more than mine.

  33. TheMock780 says:

    Just about to head off to Rexall for my chance to watch Les Canadiens. I’m hoping PK puts on a show

  34. Hockey Socks says:

    Ruutu and Lapierre on the same team? Oh boy.

  35. Nine1one says:

    and Perry~!

  36. Wayne says:

    I kinda like it. I’m diggin’ the between period vid-caps and it probably lessens the server load from all the refreshing. Mike doesn’t have to compete for bandwidth this way.

  37. zerolegel says:

    same here

  38. matraque says:

    Last time PK made a show against the Oilers, we lost πŸ™


    Canadien en 5! Never go Full Retard

  40. MikeL says:

    Hate to be a party pooper, but I really wish Boone would go to the old ways of blogging.

  41. OneTimer says:

    Boston is kicking ass (unfortunately) but Tavares just scored a hell of a goal

  42. SeriousFan09 says:

    Boone, the entire NHL knew the Canadiens were hurting for defensive depth.

  43. Wayne says:

    Would Ruttu have come here anyway? … and do we want a Ruttu when we shipped Ruttu-lite to Anaheim earlier on?

  44. oshawahabsfan says:

    Thanks for helping out Islanders… some spoilers they are sheesh!

  45. FormalWare says:

    Singing the “Parises”? Was that on purpose, Mr. Boone?

  46. RJB says:

    Cup preview?! Tampa wont make it out of the first round.

  47. clichabs says:

    I don’t understand. You DON’T need to refresh, so this feature alone makes the new live blogging better. Welcome to 2011 and real time refreshing a-la-twitter

  48. OneTimer says:

    I think I can live with this new new format of Boone-posts only. Better than last time.

  49. EricMelvin says:

    I’m just waiting for the Boone-Cam.

  50. Wayne says:

    I tend to agree. They’re improving but they likely need more gel and seasoning. I won’t discount St.Louis and his leadership to get them far though.

  51. SeriousFan09 says:

    With their D, there’s no way they can see the Cup Finals unless PHI has devastating injuries. They don’t have the D any more than MTL does and they don’t have our goaltending either.

  52. Wayne says:

    That’s what I meant.

  53. PeterD says:

    Thanks Drew…you’re right …looks like we need a goalie…
