Is there nowhere that's safe from hearing the L-name?! Please -- let's make this a refuge for those who are sick and tired of the NBA's one-player marketing strategy!
- Comment on Subban and Eller file for salary arbitration (2014-07-06 08:50:49)
I just think the Habs and PK/Eller have a deal: file for arbitration to give us more time, and prevent poaching. We will sign you both. Simple.

I keep scanning the news, hoping to read that Moen is gone, but alas... :(
- Comment on NHL, Habs release complete 2014-15 schedule (2014-06-23 10:46:16)
That seems like too many changes to a team that almost made the finals. I'll give you: 1) Parros, Murray, Boullion, Gionta gone. 2) Budaj traded. 3) Moen traded (ha!!) or bought out. 4) Whatever we can get in the UFA market. But we would really miss Markov and Pleks. Losing them plus Gorges would explode a team that had a lot of leadership and heart. My team: Patches, DD, Bourque Galchnyuk, Eller, Gallagher Weise, Pleks, Briere Prust, UFA, What we get for Gorges PK, Beaulieu Markov, Emelin Gorges, Weaver Tinordi Pateryn
- Comment on HI/O Show: Habs will face more pressure next season (2014-06-13 18:41:47)
Hey, did all of you HIOers know that the Habs will face more pressure next season? Apparent, that the hot news today! ;-)

With two different ruptured biceps, there is every indication that Gionta has a degenerative condition. His wrist shot is significantly poorer the last 2 years, and this will probably not improve. Lastly, his skating isn't what it used to be, either. Please don't sign!
- Comment on Exclusive: One-on-one with Habs owner Geoff Molson on team’s past, playoff present and encouraging future (2014-05-21 09:40:23)
You have a very short memory. Plecky has been the shutdown center against top lines for the past few years. Remember what he did to Crosby's playoff scoring? And to Ovechkin's? I'll agree that this year, he's underperforming, though.

Correlation is not causation. I think you're chasing something that isn't there.
- Comment on Habs’ Price out for rest of Rangers series; Tokarski reported to start Game 2 (Video) (2014-05-19 14:03:37)
After having watched the Kreider hit very carefully several times, I am certain that Kreider did it on purpose. He springs up slightly and lands on the back of his blades and thrusts his skates ahead, while bracing for the collision. His shot is an after-thought. http://imgur.com/zApL8Lb See that left skate of Kreider's? It's going to go directly into Price's right pad. Price's skate will get stuck briefly on the post and Kreider's momentum will cause Price's knee to get injured. Kreider made no attempt to stop his skates from contacting Price.
