    I like your optimism and I guess the NYR-LA series could have gone differently, but IMO, NY did not stand a chance. They blew leads like it was their game plan, and the close scores don't really reflect the reality of that series. LA was dominant in every aspect of the game and the only reason NY was not humiliated was because of Lundqvist. Habs don't match up well against teams like LA and St. Louis, but they could win, anything could happen in theory. Who knows, if we had been there and Price was healthy, I saw we give them a better fight than NYR, but to win we'd have to play better than we did against Boston. Not saying it couldn't happen, but it's not something you'd bank on. Granted, LA did play with fire going down games to start the first 3 rounds, but what does it say about a team when they come back to win 3 series after starting 3-0, 2-0, 1-0...? ______________________ Hockey sine stercore tauri.

    I'm going to repost with the purpose of plugging the band I think you guys should check out: The Black Keys - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpaPBCBjSVc&list=AL94UKMTqg-9BSoLgo4qJ9dPTMY-N0tKK- ______________________ Hockey sine stercore tauri.

    Sounds cool, kind of like a Netflix with absolutely everything. Do you have to stream? Can you watch live TV? I feel like I'd go over my internet usage pretty fast with that, but I'm gonna look into it as well since I need to set up cable/wireless when I move to Montreal. ______________________ Hockey sine stercore tauri.

    1) The Black Keys - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpaPBCBjSVc&list=AL94UKMTqg-9BSoLgo4qJ9dPTMY-N0tKK- 2) The Rolling Stones - they are awesome. 3) Not really a "guilty" pleasure but I guess the closest thing for me is John Mayer - real good guitar player and artist but some cheesy songs. Also throw Michael Buble in here. ______________________ Hockey sine stercore tauri.

  • Comment on Habs will play eight preseason games in 13 days; Kovalev criticizes Subban (2014-08-20 00:43:43)
    Hi HIO! Finally ended up finding a cool 1BR in Montreal, right downtown on de Maisonneuve near Atwater. Pretty pumped to be in one of my favourite cities. I'm thinking of picking up a ticket or two to the same game the summiteers will be attending and hopefully partake in the other events - how is the summit? Must definitely be worth checking out, just wondering what the experience is like, the vibe and all... do you get to talk to everyone or is it too big? Is it like a big gathering with lots of beer? Is it basically HIO in person? There's no wrong answer here. Anyway, looking forward to it and to the start of the season. Cheers! ______________________ Hockey sine stercore tauri.

    Is it just me, or is Cathal Kelly a blatantly biased Toronto-chest-pumping writer when it comes to that? Not to say the point re. Drake is wrong or anything, but man, some of his hockey articles regarding the Habs or the Leafs are something terrible! ______________________ Hockey sine stercore tauri.
  • Comment on Subban wasn’t fazed by arbitration hearing with Habs (2014-08-06 14:06:06)
    The Hockey News is a rag. It has no good content and the writers are all unknowledgeable pricks. It's literally never right and I don't think anyone who writes it understands, even on a superficial level, what analysis is. The CH is the undisputed #1. But bias aside, logos are a subjective thing, it's so stupid they would even have this article to begin with. ______________________ Hockey sine stercore tauri.
