Update: Sir Paul latest to get Habs’ No. 1

Five minutes and 35 seconds into this clip, another fan is revealed. With thanks to Inside/Out reader Simon Fraser, who sent along the link to this shot from high up in the Bell Centre at the end of Sir Paul McCartney’s Montreal concert this past week.

UPDATE: Former Canadiens defenceman Patrice Brisebois was classified 28th on a starting grid of 28 today in a NASCAR Canadian Tire Series stock-car race in Trois-Rivières. Breezer didn’t complete a lap, according to unofficial results, listed as having engine problems. Unsure whether he’ll will run on Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on Aug. 27, on the undercard of the NASCAR Nationwide Series NAPA Auto Parts 200.

    Getting the excuses ready already? That’s faith.

    Happy 23rd Birthday Carey Price. Have a Great Day!!! Another year older and looking to step up when a contract is signed. Carey Price will be ready and maybe put an end to all the negative post that certain individuals comment on HI/O. Carey Price make them eat their words and put it to bed once and for all.


    Go Habs Go!!!!

        A very tough question,but a good one.As much as i love cammy and his on ice performance i’d have to say Kovalchuk.Off ice and if ya need a good quote and if ya want the passion character and leadership,cammy’s your man.But Kovalchuk’s of this world come few and far between.Pure goal scoring talent.Kovalchuk is a top 10 player in the league.Cammy is a top 20,in my opinion.

    Good content presentation and nice summation.

    I hate having to narrow it down to three, but here goes.

    Pearl Jam – Vitology

    Rise Against – Appeal to Reason (maybe not a favourite of all time, but I’m listening to it a ton lately)

    I Mother Earth – Scenery & Fish

    Burkie was damned if he did and damned if he didn’t.

    The status quo was the safer option cause without a move there’s no move to criticize. I have no doubt there’d have been more egg if he had pulled the trigger today. Burkeoff foolishly promoted Kaberle as one of the top D-men in the league and nobody bit. The only ones who bought into this nonsense were Loaf fans. And they expected the world in return. Wasn’t goin’ to happen, so Burkie had to sit on his hands.

    The buffoon was hoisted by his own petard. Burke’s no fool; he just behaves foolishly.

  7. K-hab25 says:

    No, in his hockey career, it’s the “crazies” that don’t like him.

  8. K-hab25 says:

    For the group that feels Price turning 23 means, “he’s not young anymore.” Well 3 years into his NHL career he still is the 4th youngest goaltender and only 2 weeks from being the 3rd youngest. There are 6 NHL goaltenders with more than 20 career starts under 25. In order of youngest to oldest, they’re Steve Mason 22 – 3.05 /.901, Semyon Varlamov 22 – 2.55 /.909, Ondreij Pavelec 23 – 3.29/.906, CAREY PRICE 23 – 2.77/.912, Tukka Rask 23 – 1.97/.931 and Johnathan Quick 24 – 2.54/.907. Notice with the exception of Rask, who plays on the best defensive team in the NHL, how the other 22/23/24 year old goalies have about the same or worse #’s as Price. Before you say, but Price is our #1, so are all of these guys, except Pavelec, who is in a split system, so he’s still a 1a/1b. Not that any of this matters to the haters, well, because a haters gonna hate. It’s there nature, but I thought it was still interesting to see how Price stacked up to other goaltenders his age. You know “young” ones!!

    HELL NO.

  10. Aerobiz says:

    Burke’s got egg on his face for this one.


    And considering the size of his head, that’s a lot of breakfast!!

  11. K-hab25 says:

    “23 is no longer considered young” WHAT???? Tukka Rask and Ondreij Pavelec, rookies last year, are 23. Jimmy Howard, Jonas Gustavsson and Antti Niemi, rookies last year, are 26. Suppossed “young goalies” that won the #1 spots from veterans last year, like Jonas Hiller and Pekka Rinne, are 28. There’s only 2 goaltenders younger than 23 in the NHL, Steve Mason and Semyon Varlamov, they’re 22. Only 6 under 25, Quick is 24, he was a rookie at 23. So the 5 youngest goaltenders in the NHL, in order are Mason, Varlamov, Pavelec, Price and Rask. Do some research next time, because your douchebag attempt to hate on Price is an epic failure!!!

  12. SeriousFan09 says:

    Shocking news: Kaberle did not bring in Marc Savard, Bobby Ryan or James Neal.

    Look forward to the fun of Burke trying to get Kaberle to waive his NTC in March.

  13. K-hab25 says:

    What are we the laffs? I mean a 1st and a 2nd round pick, basically, for a solid defenseman!! I mean the laffs got a 21 year old 30 goal man for two 1st and a 2nd. Are we really dumber than the laffs? I sure as heck hope not!! That deal is awful!!

  15. showey47 says:

    No thanks,not a fan of giving up good prospects or picks for a player we could lose in one year. We have done that way too much for my liking over the past 3 years.

  16. habs4eternity says:

    23 years old is no longer considered young, so pro  Price fans, can’t use age as an excuse any longer.

    we all know Price can’t measure up, anmd as a result, this habs team is in deep deep trouble.

    10th place would look good considering habs are most likely pegged for 13th place.

  17. The Cat says:

    It depends of the vision. Like are the habs thinking big hopes or rebuilding? I would stick with rebuilding personally and theres the cap space thing too. But then again, Bieksa is a good player, probably better than Tinordi’ll ever be.


    [Disclaimer]: I’m a hockey fan. I care about the habs, but probably not as much as you.

  19. SeriousFan09 says:

    ATM: Cammalleri based on leadership and playoff performance, Kovalchuk may score more but Cammy will score the more important goals more often I think for a team.


    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  20. SeriousFan09 says:

    Also had two bad seasons with injury and the Habs are trying to avoid any more guys like that. Oh and he’s not that good, 1 year left on his contract and Tinordi is a prospect we need, a large, physical defencemen who can bring impact to the game with hits. We need some cap-friendly talent in years to come.


    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  21. habsfreak13 says:

    Been a slow day so I’m going to ask everybody…If you could have Kovalchuk at a $6 million cap hit, would you take him or Cammy? Personally, I like Cammy just for his personality and playoff performance this year.

  23. JIMVINNY says:

    And that is why you are such an idiot. 

  24. Xtrahabsfan says:

    I’d do it in a heartbeat,Bieksa is a quality Dman and Tinordi is a prospect…no brainer!

  25. Malreg says:

    No, no, no, and No.

    A) We don’t need another defenseman (we already have 7 that are more then capable)

    B) No cap space.

    C) Vancouver needs cap space, teams know this, which is why teams will give up very little for Bieksa, nevermind a 1st round pick.

  26. pointu says:

    Sounds alot like his hockey career.Not very good at it but was still a hit with the “Locos”

  27. Sith says:

    We gave up a second round pick to get him.

  28. MD says:

    With this one


    it will be hard to keep it bellow 150 km/h
