Yikes! The CHicks are taking over!!

From The Gazette’s David Klimek, the Bobby Orr of marketing stats, some interesting numbers on HIO’s audience.

No help for it, guys.

We have to put in a second loo.

And the high-fives after loud farts?



  1. HabsChick says:

    I got the same email.  Hmmm…it should be nice & warm in Florida for new Years…

    Sounds like a nice enough 1st family vacation.

  2. Danno says:

    I don’t know why Bettman doesn’t just cancel the regular season, and the playoffs. It’s obvious the Leafs are invincible and we are all just wasting time playing these meaningless games until the inevitable happens. Bettman should just get the Cup engraved now and  put a stop to all this nonsense.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  3. 24 Cups says:

    Smart Doggie – I figure that Gionta and AK46 will be here for awhile on the right side.  Laps should also stick around.  That means that a guy like Palushaj is going to be up against prospects like White, Pyatt, Kristo, Avtsin etc.  He has decent offensive instincts but he is a little undersized and doesn’t seem to have much grit to his game.  I could see him getting some emergency call ups but doubt he’ll ever be a regular Hab.  Of course, Andrei may leave at the end of the year which would open up some space.  However, I’m betting he stays and gets a new contract. 

  4. B says:

    Ranking is down to 16th.

  5. Psycho29 says:

    Tony….What’s with the attitude? You should be happy!

    Your Leafs are going for an 82-0 season and MacArthur is on track to break Gretzky’s goal record (92) with 103 goals….



  6. Say Ash says:

    He has a decent shot, more accurate than Spacek, I reckon.

  7. SmartDog says:

    No, yo have Max-Pac above.

    And I think Palushaj is at least in the 2nd list. But I’ve only seen him play this pre-season.

    Listen to the SmartDog. He knows his poop!

  8. SmartDog says:

    Tell her he only really performs a couple times a year. 😉

    On the other hand, I hear he likes long walks along the river.

    Listen to the SmartDog. He knows his poop!

  9. Chuck says:

    I smell a road trip!

  10. fbkj says:

    habs send out emails to season ticket holders


    and im not claiming to know anything that isnt general knowledge about the panthers attendance, the fact you brought that up with such a bizarre tone is noted and douchechilly

  11. 24 Cups says:

    Rob – Good heads-up on MaxPac.  I didn’t have him on my radar because he already was a regular a few years ago.  As well, the article didn’t mention his name or include him on their prospect list.  Maybe they feel he has somehow graduated (see bottom of the list).  Palushaj belongs in the rest of field.

  12. observer says:

    just got an email from the habs??? yeah right leetle boy you must mean you put yourself on a list that zillions of others also are on. besides what would you know about miami’s attendence?

  13. Natrous says:

    Keep dreaming and stay classy, Punk(ster).

  14. krob1000 says:

    Pacioretty? Palushaj? both NHLers for sure IMO ….

  15. fbkj says:

    agreed, they did it up in french AND offer a promotional code…

    and wow their prices on luxury box rentals, even though its $2500, is chump change compared to renting at the bell center

  16. SeriousFan09 says:

    Kind of smart, Habs are in town and it’s a Habs crowd filling the arena. They know better than to annoy the people who contribute to the very few big attendance nights they have there.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  17. avatar_58 says:

    Kinda classy actually

  18. 24 Cups says:

    Here’s the shortened version.

    Good prospects:Leblanc, Kristo, Max-Pac, Tinordi, Yemelin, White, Weber

    Longshots: Avtsin, Maxwell, Engqvist, Nattinen, Gallagher, Carle/Bennett

    Rest of Field – Don’t hold your breath.

  19. Ian Cobb says:


    By the way this Habs Chick above Vicky,  just donated a pair of her season tickets to the Summit Gainey Foundation Raffle.

    The chicks on this site are TOPS.

    See you all at Hurleys Pub Nov. 5th

  20. sholi2000.com says:

    Because they sell out every time they’re there 🙂

    They can send us love, or hate – were buying those seats.

  22. fbkj says:

    richard trophy for lulz

  23. Say Ash says:

    conn smythe even better

  24. fbkj says:

    just got an email from the habs

    florida’s attitude differs from the isles, not that we didnt already know this

  25. avatar_58 says:

    Price winning a Vezina would be a hilarious middle finger to haters

  26. bwoar says:

    She’s the reason I never learned calculus.  But I don’t grudge her, I never would’ve met the cutest nurse at the VD clinic otherwise.

  27. Say Ash says:

    Ha! Boone censored himself!

  28. bwoar says:

    Well yes, but you should still count for statistical accuracy 😉 

  29. mike g says:

    Alright peeps…

    Time for one of Mike G’s 5 question segment. This one is gonna be real fun. Here we go…


    1- Will the Canadiens have won a Stanley Cup?

    2- Will the Coyotes and Panthers still operate out of deserted cities? If not, where will they relocate?

    3- Who will be ther Habs’ captain?

    4- Will Carey Price win a Vezina?

    5- Will there be an english channel broadcasting all Habs games?

    Bonus Question: In 10 years from now, will Benoit Pouliot finnaly learn how to balance himself on skates?

     I got AK at under 64.5 pts, with Triple X and Tom Nickle.

  30. CrashTheNetCrashTheNet says:

    Who could forgot Mary Jane Goodhead.


    “When I was a baby I wish my first word had been “QUOTE”, then right before I die I could say “UNQUOTE” – Stephen Wright

  31. HabsChick says:

    Yeah, I was told they didn’t want to hear from me either.  Apparently being from ontario makes you irrelevant.  Or boring.  Or some such thing.

  32. SeriousFan09 says:

    1. Yes

    2. Coyotes and Panthers will have moved on by then, the ‘Peg, Hamilton and QC are possible re-entry locations, but I suspect only 1 new Canadian franchise, Bettman will probably send the other to Kansas City as he’s threatened before.

    3. Josh Gorges, P.K. Subban, among prospects, could be Jarred Tinordi, seems to have ‘it’ from reports.

    4. Yes

    5. Only if you own NHL Center Ice!

    Bonus: I still check into a discussion board I first logged into 10 years ago so I’m betting at lesat I will.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  33. bwoar says:


    It should also be said that the survey was exclusive, i.e. at one point I entered my location as Manitoba and was told “we’ve reached the maximum respondents required from your area” or some such nonsense, before answering any other questions.

    And I was all set to pimp for more Boone.  Why else would anyone come here?

    So these numbers are most likely B.S. in that the survey was skewed towards people from ???  (probably Quebec?)  Not sure why you would do that on a web survey but corporate types DO prefer their data to match preconceived notions belonging to advertisers.  Among over 18s the site skews old according to these numbers, hence the lovely All-bran banners to go with “Guitar Hero 57: Flash In The Pan Edition” the latest crapmobile from Dodge and endless exhortations to find out what Mary Jane Goodhead from Math class is up to all these years later.

    Every site does this, just thought I’d point it out for those who are wondering about all this data.  P.S. whoever is trafficking ads for Scotiabank, TD Bank and Royal all at once….. major exclusivity fail, besides we all know Scotiabank owns the NHL anyhow.


  34. Ian Cobb says:

    These gender stats are used for the Summit. It looks like the gals get to buy the rounds at Hurleys Nov.5th.

    It’s the Elle.  It has a full page head shot of him.

    Send me your address, I’ll send you a copy.

    Listen to the SmartDog. He knows his poop!

  37. nick says:

    All it said were that the roughly the same number of men and women took the survey. It doesn’t state how many looked at it and thought “meh… maybe next time”.  😉


  38. bwoar says:

    just a friendly fyi, ISPs don’t transmit that kind of personal information during websurfing; this data was likely gathered from the survey behind the red image on the top right corner.  A homeless musk ox could be using your PC and Habs I/O server-bots wouldn’t know the difference.  There are other ways of getting at that data through agency tracking cookies but for a blog like this one let’s say that step is a little too deep for no real return.

    No wait what is it the kids say these days,

    (   .   )  (   .   )  OR GTFO

  39. SLONCOLD says:

    well when about 1/3 of the fans of the nhl are women ( something like 45+ in the nfl) it should come as no surprise that the NHL and it’s players support such an important cause.

  40. Harani says:

    Sorry about the Rick DiPietro pink pads post earlier if I offended anyone. Somehow, it didn’t click in my head that it could be for cancer awareness month. On second thought, we’ll have to endure it through 2 games in 3 days next week. And it’s just hideous since it doesn’t fit with the Isles Uni at all. Just look at it (close-up).

    “It must be love!”

  41. larisalapointe says:

    Agree that more guys post on HIO than chicks but could it be  that more women took the survey over the weekend than the men?

  42. observer says:

    players? ever see jagr in his dress? or sean avery with his dolls?

  43. observer says:

    sorry i cant help you but i dont hero worship anyone.

  44. observer says:

    people lie because they know the irs and rev canada checks these websites to find out how much money posters are making.

  45. derfab says:

    Sure. How many transvestites?

  46. observer says:

    bill maher on hbo’s realtime this past friday said women didn’t care to look at the type of pictures brett lorenzo favre alledgedly sent. is that true?

  47. Chuck says:

    Just for the record ladies, I wasn’t the one who farted.

  48. Kaptain K says:


    (Not the income one… but the male/female one)

    Post here which sex u are and approx how many times a day you visit… averaged over a week… make that a 3 game week… 


    Male: 20 visits per game night… and about 5 on off game days…. so thats 3(20) +4(5) = 60 + 20 = 80 per week.  

  49. JIMVINNY says:

    Since my 25 year old wife is the name on our telephone/internet bill, her stats are probably the ones that show up everytime i visit the page.  Situations like mine probably account for a lot of the female stats.

  50. SeriousFan09 says:

    Statistical sampling, you ask X people from Y region and extrapolate from that, +/- a certain percentage of error. Stats class in CEGEP, told me everything I needed to know about how it’s calculated and Yes Minister told me how they get twisted.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  51. Kaptain K says:

    How did they get these stats…? Theres no way women check this site more than men…not being sexist but it just doesnt make sense. Maybe the survey was taken on the gazette website where maybe women visit more than men… the survey should be taken on here lol. 

    Captain Gionta

  52. punkster says:

    First of all your dealer is not a “big shot pharma guy”. He’s just a dealer.

    Secondly, the advancement in research and treatments from 20, 15, 10, 5 and even 3 years ago show that people are working hard on the problem.

    Put the tinfoil hat back on a recalibrate the frequencies.

  53. JIMVINNY says:

    The higher income percentages are included in the lower income numbers as well. 

  54. JasonM says:

    I don’t understand how exactly they got the information on how old I am and how much I’m making.

  55. Bob Dobbs says:

    There must be a mistake with the household income statistics, the percentages add up to 199%.

  56. HugeHabsFan says:

    I would have never guessed it either.  I do keep my posts to a minimum and mostly just read the articles.  It gets a tad too dramatic.

    ……….. “Thank you Cammy for making my day even more amazing!” I STILL BELIEVE. I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE. Cammalleri: “I almost feel bad for a guy who plays an NHL career without experiencing what it’s like to be a Montreal Canadien”.

  57. HugeHabsFan says:

    I’m the wife ;o).  I’ve been a Habs fan since I was a very little girl and haven’t had a favorite player in years.  Cammy would now be my favorite.  My daughter (11) is a huge Habs fan as well and loves anything related to the Canadiens. It’s a fight to go to bed when the Habs play on school nights.

    Oh and Boone – no worries – high fives after loud farts are completely acceptable.  I’m the mom of an 8 yr old boy…it’s just the norm. ;o)


    “Thank you Cammy for making my day even more amazing!”


    Cammalleri: “I almost feel bad for a guy who plays an NHL career without experiencing what it’s like to be a Montreal Canadien”.

  58. Rudy says:

    What magazine has an 8/10 of Gionta????

    I’m trying to figure out how to get my hands on a copy of Elle Quebec and have it sent to me in the states.

  60. Natrous says:

    We all do, but that’s never gonna happen. There is way more money in keeping people sick than there is in helping them do away with disease.

    I big shot pharma guy I once met told me that the person who cures cancer would probably be dead within a day or two… at the time I thought he was kidding around, but now I’m not so sure.

  61. 123456 says:

    i’m not in the majority bucket in either pie chart – i guess that makes me a minority. now i’m left wondering (since i’m in a minority group) do i get an additional break on tickets?

    i do not believe the male/female stats

    i am so NOT an IT person – but are IP’s looked at when calculating, because as eluded to some people post as many users or get banned and make up additional names, would be interesting to see the stats on individuals with the most user names.

  62. habaddict_andy says:

    My wife got into Kovalev when she saw him in Enrique concert.  Now she calls him her husband.  I have fun telling her he sucks now, and he’s not even with Montreal anymore.

  63. SmartDog says:

    My daughter is in love with Gionta. 

    8 years old….she freaks out every time he’s on the ice and made me by that magazine on the stands now so she could have his 8×10.

    And Cami and Pleks are turning on the ‘grown up’ (supposedly) in the house… but not enough for her to sit through an entire game.

    Listen to the SmartDog. He knows his poop!

  64. avatar_58 says:

    My mother loves Lapierre and Gomez

  65. Storm Man says:

    I think he had someone very close to him die of cancer so he is wearing as much pink as he can. Watching alot of the NFL players you can tell which one’s have had to deal with having a love lost to cancer or has delt with it. I for one give a huge high five to Dieps for doing this. I wish a cure is found ASAP.  

  66. namgel says:

    My Wife was a Hab fan before but ever since Cammo showed up now she’s a huge hab fan.  She says she likes the way he smiles during interviews.

    I hear my 5 year old daughter and her giggling everytime Cammo’s on the TV.

    I asked my wife if I could put up a Fat Head Poster of Cammalleri floor to ceiling in the basement.

    Normally she’d not be too impressed but when its Cammo she wants it in the bedroom.

    Chicks ! “Go figure”


  67. habaddict_andy says:

    Does this mean we could also use this site for pick-ups.  I should practice on my pick-up lines…  Just kidding ladies.  😉


    Scott Gomez to Montreal Media “You’re a pain in the neck, but you’re our pain in the neck.”

  68. JIMVINNY says:

    October is breast cancer month, and lots of sports have been doing several similar things.  Lots of NFL players are wearing pink shoes and gloves, Baseball players as well.  That being said, I think Dieps is taking it a little far.  That’s hideous.

  69. SeriousFan09 says:

    Pretty sure it’s about Hockey Fights Cancer month, but I think the guy could’ve been fine with just the mask. Playing with pad colours, well ask Price how he did in Red or Fleury about his wonderful record in Yellow…

  70. Harani says:

    Yuck! Islanders Rick DiPietro in pink pads and gloves! Pink does nto match any of Islanders unis that are Blue/Orange/White. He should prolly concentrate on staying healthy no?

    “It must be love!”

  71. jennifer1984 says:

    i didnt know there were so many of us oh here.

    obviously most of the women don’t post as ive only seen a few.
