Retromikey, I agree with you about Eller. I've been a huge fan of his since his 4 goal game, but really haven't seen much I liked except for a bit at the beginning of the season (or was it last season). He can always be counted on for an offside, a wild shot toward the net, or a really bonehead play like covering the puck with his hand. The second time was last night. I think he would fetch a draft pick at best. I disagree with you about the "North American bred" player. Why limit yourself, unless there is something non hockey related that bothers you about non-North American players.

By now they all must have played with everyone, eh? Crankshaft hasn't played center yet though.

It wasn't said on air, it was speculated. It was all speculation by Louis Jean, and not reported as fact. But it doesn't take much to turn rumor into fact, eh Strummer?

I for one have appreciated Plekanec here for many years. I hope I can appreciate him for many years to come, wearing the CH.

Try firstrowsports for coverage of almost any sport around the world. Not great, lots of ads, but you get to see the games.

Yes Icky. As a long time reader (but not for several months) but not a contributor, I can't really say what I expected but it was something more than a fantasy game report.

An apology would be admitting guilt, opening himself up to a civil suit, I would guess. Nothing could happen to him on the ice that would be suitable punishment for what he had done.

It takes two sides to sign a contract. Just give the Gomez contract/salary a rest. If Mgmt want to do something about it, they will.
PS Been reading this site for a few years now, but all this talk of Gomez not worth his salary really pi$$ed me off enough to register and make a comment.

Richards trying to pull a Campbell and nailing him with the elbow pad. Nice. The goon.

"This is an opportunity to tell the NHL, and the world, how we feel about what has been done to our National pastime."
This is also an opportunity for it to become highjacked and for Habs fans to again become the laughing stock of the NHL community if a cop car is burned ot if a riot breaks out. Guys and gals, although I agree that changes are needed, is this the right tihing to do? Keep the alcohol out of it.
Good luck with it.
