    yeah. Terrible actor with credits like Million Dollar Baby (4 oscars), Almost Famous (4 oscar nominations), Tropic Thunder, knocked up, nick and norahs infinite playlist, night at the museum, goon, the art of the steal, robocop....etc etc. part of the huge group of comedians associated with Judd Apatow. and acted alongside such actors as Robert Downey Jr, Kirk Russel, gary oldman, samuel l jackson, terence stamp, robin williams, phillip seymore hoffman, clint eastwood and nick nolte among more. while he isn't daniel day lewis, he is pretty funny and decent range. Its not like 3 of the best directors out there chose him for their movies such as Clint Eastwood, Cameron Crowe and Jon Turteltaub. Not to mention Ben Stiller and David Cronenberg. just my opinion anyways.

    it was a charging call, not an instigator penalty.

    like is 2010. Washington can look to hit. We look to win. They keep hitting, we keep winning.
  • Comment on Bouillon hopes to keep playing after being released by Canadiens (2014-10-06 14:07:25)
    We lack scoring. We dont need to win fights. We beat the Bruins, we didnt beat the Rangers. How will someone like McLaren help us beat the Rangers? Fighting in the NHL is all but completely done. The only team with success in that style are with guys who can fight big and play well. Enforcers who cant play good enough to be on a top three are becoming more and more useless.
  • Comment on Canadiens trade Peter Budaj to Winnipeg Jets (2014-10-05 16:44:51)
    Why is Kristo for Thomas a head scratcher? What has Kristo done so much more than Thomas? Briers is a failure? First off we now have PA Parenteau for him and second why was Briere a failure? He did a great job with so few minutes. Do you think Parenteau will not play well in Montreal? Why is Budaj a trade to wonder about? We couldnt keep all three and if we send one down we lose them for free. Getting a dollar would have been better than if we sent down one of them. In fact losing Tokarski would have been really bad. The team isnt that different at all. I love Bob Gainey and he has good and bad moves. IMO mostly good ones. HOWEVER, MB has constantly made this team better with every step. The key to success isnt fleecing another GM into a Eric Lindros style trade. Its about moving forward and getting better with every step. Long term success. Parros had bad luck, and all in all I still think it wasnt a terrible move picking him up. did nothing to hurt us, and now its over. Anyways, I think a lot of times keeping the track is harder than doing something crazy, and MB is looking long term. Thats why I trust in MB.
  • Comment on Bozon at Habs’ rookie camp after battling meningitis (2014-09-13 11:57:20)
    Prust. I feel like we would get on well. Absolutely not DD, and anyone else who can golf like him. I hope Prust kinda sucks....
  • Comment on Odds against a Habs rookie cracking lineup this season (2014-09-12 11:27:21)
    Re National Anthem questions One of my favorite parts of the pre game is watching Jean Beliveau when he is in his seat signing along with the National Anthem. I think it would be a sham to do away with the anthem. To me its part of the experience and tradition. We seem to want to do away with this stuff so much. Make the game faster. Eliminate 20 minutes between periods. What will be left soon? three 5 minute periods? AND I like the big ceremonies too
  • Comment on Martin Brodeur could be a good fit with Habs: Damphousse (2014-09-09 12:58:17)
    Yeah I mean what could a 22 year veteran of the NHL who has won 801 games in 1464 career nhl games have to offer a team like the Canadiens... Playing in 9 all star games, winning 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina trophies, and 5 Jennings trophies. He is obviously a terrible fit and would have nothing to offer us in leadership and mentoring in a way a still young goalie... Budaj is the problem here, no reason to get rid of him. But Martin would be a great addition.
  • Comment on New TV package aimed at Habs fans across country (2014-09-04 11:50:18)
    I remember in the fine print on one I did years ago, it also said I would automatically be registered for the following season at a much higher rate. I doubt they can do this and not allow you to cancel, but you may want to check. And check to see if the cancellation fee is $99.... Or something. but in the end I think it sounds like a good deal. like I said the other day. I pay $160 for center ice here in the USA.
  • Comment on Habs ink three-year deal with Sportsnet for regional TV coverage (2014-09-03 14:38:55)
    WHAT?????????????????? FREAKING BELL. I pay $160
