    Who cares what Eklund thinks. I’m not sure why anyone even goes to that website, I don’t.

    I see Eklund is indicating Price contract talks aren’t going well. If the Ek/opposite factor continues to hold true a deal should be announced any minute now. And too bad about Trotter, but 250 big ones in russia beats the heck out of the 67.5 Hamiltonian pesos. I thought he had a shot at a MTL roster spot, but I suppose Eller leaping over him on the depth chart sealed his Bulldog fate.

    trotter..good to see the smurfs getting the message. no way this kid was getting a shot and some of the others down on the farm. there just buried behind to many other players who are bigger and have a better upside. its the way it is in the NHL and crapping  on the organization to let this happen is just mindless..smart habs fans….right.

    Never saw Feels like ’94, was that a depressing video ?  Since the Habs & Spos won nothing that year ?

    Just pokin’ fun – since the Habs won the cup in the 92-93 season ;)

    And the vid you are likely referring too is called “25, Feels like ’93″

    :)

    The way I see it.

    The Habs just traded Trotter to the KHL in return, we got Alex Avstin.

    Habs WIN!

    :)

    Your signature has a defect, unless “assitant” is a new word I’ve never heard of ;)

    So where IS this list of “Trotter defects”, Booner?

    What, one arm is shorter than other? His teeth are crooked? All you link is a story about him accepting a Russian contract. That’s not a defect. Tell us the truth, does he squint too much?  Does he have an uncontrollable bladder?

    What gives? Can’t just promise a story and not deliver.

    Spill it.

    Crackin but not slackin, the card says

    Amazing video, always loved the Expos.  Always feel a bit sad that I never saw them at Jarry Park.  Thats the only two viedos of ever seen of Anakin Slade, that one and Feels like 94, but that guys good!

    When I was a kid, and I mean a very young kid, baseball was very important to me.  I followed the game closely.  Watched the Saturday afternoon games on the black and white TV, bought the bubblegum cards, etc.  Somehow I lost interest in baseball.  The Expos came along and rekindled that interest in the game.  Man, those Expos had some magic.  A Canadian based team playing America’s game, and playing it very well most years.  At least early on.  When the Expos left, my interest in baseball died again.  Just can’t get into that game anymore.  But those Expo years were great, and watching this video, seeing Carter and Rogers, Cromartie, Dawson…wow.  Chills.

    I guess he’s making more money in the KHL, plus tax free, free lodging and vehicle too. I know a couple of guys who parlayed a European hockey career into a pretty nice lifestyle in Canada when they returned. Bank a lot of cash, etc.

    And his options in North America aren’t closed at 22 either.

    Probably be a good move if he does it right.
