    I don’t understand. No questions about income, race, gender, favorite products, phone numbers, bank account numbers, numbers,numbers…

    I hope this doesn’t catch on. It could drive hits through the roof and kill that old server for sure.

    Thanks guys.

    Awesome, we get something finally free from this site. No royalties to give to anyone.
    God bless Red!
    Will miss your fine journalism in covering the Habs for over a half a century.
    Hope the Habs organization finally lets us download the training camp & yearly media guide as well since other teams have them available for download for their fans and for anyone else interested in their club.
    If not, Boone or Stubbs can share the guide(s) on this site.
