It seemed that way by when you said those people lack common sense. You are right people should do their own research and should not take what they were told to always be fact, but those teachers are often more informed than those who force dogma down the throats of children.

No... no it has not... And implying people who have the opposite opinion are stupid or lack sense is merely a tool used if you aren't capable of holding your side of an argument.

I think they know it's a Canadian audience and are trying to please the fans. I don't know if this is something ppl enjoy since I hear how bad CBC and TSN is (for being so Toronto centric); frankly I think they were the least biased of all.

SN isn't any better. They're trying really hard to please Habs fans by saying how great they are, despite this awful period.

"Teams sometimes start to expect wins will come more easily because of their recent success, forgetting how hard they need to work to achieve similar results." It's important to make that distinction between when fans are sitting pretty on a win streak and when it's the organization winning games. We're talking about the athletes here, they don't just sit back and watch the goals go in, it's they are the ones who are breaking a sweat earning those wins. They don't forget how to win while they're winning, that just sounds crazy to me. Personally I think the year we finished 28th, the Canadiens underachieved. The Habs didn't have any major roster upgrades but they had PK Subban, Price, and Pacioretty mature one more year which is a big difference when kids are at that age. Additionally Gallagher has been a huge help to the team. Also no more Gomez (had to throw that in there). Do I think the Habs will be as good as last year, certainly. I don't think that means they finish on top of the division though? Probably not. As for the playoffs I believe the Habs were lucky to face the lightening without Stamkos, and whenever the Bruins and Habs meet we often see the best hockey from both clubs. No matter how the MTL-BOS series ended, I would not have been surprised. Just like when The Habs lost to them when they were seeded 8th. Edit: TB was without Bishop - not Stamkos

Yeah, kinda bogus, I don't think Tinordi could have lowered his shoulder anymore... The guy wasn't even watching where he was going.

I use Hockeystreams myself. Remember when streaming to right click on the flash player and in the settings menu, slide the local storage bar to the max, I thin kit's 1GB. http://www6.hockeystreams.com/stream_help/flash this site has more tips that help with streaming, but the one I mentioned made the biggest difference.
