Nice to see a fellow Colombian habs fan, and I thought I was the only one! Guess we're all over creation.

Just been reading all the good vibes here until finally getting to see a live game last night. Gotta feel good about the direction the team is taking. However, at times it is difficult to watch the brutish tactics that have crept back into the game. I am referring specifically to Barberio's cross check to the head of Gionta. A deliberate intent to injure in my opinion. I'm reading Todd Denault's "The Greatest Game" which chronicles the dark days of the early 70's. I wonder if we aren't heading in that direction once more. It is sad to see unskilled brutes hijack the game from the players who can actually play the game.

How about 16 playoff wins for player analysis? So much more value there.

To all those who wanted to throw Eller under the bus, now say you're sorry, come on now.

A few weeks ago, after we acquired Vanek and Weaver, the talk here was who would be let go because we would be over the roster limit once everyone came back off the injury list. IIRC Bournival got sent down on a reconditioning stint, Drewiske cleared waivers? Is there an expanded roster limit for the post season?

We open the vault and make him an offer that will show we want him to be a lifetime Hab. We'll never finish low enough in the standings to pick up those marquis players. An opportunity like this doesn't come by often. 8 X 8 will do it. Dezzy centering two 40+ goal scorers next year!

I was probably about 4 years old at the time with four older brothers, 2 Wings fans and 2 Leafs. My first impulse was naturally to choose either Wings or Leafs but they said I had to go for another team. I said Montreal but they said "no that's French, can't go there" so settled on the Hawks. Anyway that year (early 60's) the Habs won the cup and once I learned a little about the legendary players and history I was all in. Boy it was great all those years lording it over them!

AFAIK Crimea was always part of Russia at least during Soviet times it was part of the Russian SSR. Then Yeltsin gave it over to Ukraine in a magnanimous gesture after the break up. The place is majority Russian. Not worth getting killed over. Not like Putin is going to start toppling countries in eastern Europe ala Hitler/Stalin.
