While I am a regular reader here, I don't post often. Anybody know whatever happened to Loonie, aka Tom Nickle? He always provided some good, sometimes controversial, insight to this blog.
- Comment on Tinordi and Bournival to start season with Habs (video) (2013-09-27 16:49:08)
Heard about MB switching Tinordi's number from 42 to his father's number 24. This is the kind of thing that develops loyalty and admiration from all the players. Kudos to MB - solid guy.

I moved from Mtl to the USA in 1990 when I was 30. Followed the Habs since 1969 and went to over 1,000 Expos games. So now that I have made this a sports oriented commentary (as per dragonwind2000's request - see below), your theory is more than just a theory. This is exactly the what the Billionaire elites do. Their entire focus is on keeping the rest of us as dumb as they can & maintaining a crappy education system so that we are less likely to think about things. Part of their strategy obviously is brainwashing through the media, and how better to do that then exactly how you say: just hire people to troll as many websites as possible and write complete trash. Anti-science, anti-truth - it doesn't matter. Read any comments section to an article in the Washington Post or NY Times and you can tell. The comments are not necessarily even conservative - the comments are just opposite of what anyone who is not in the Republican party thinks. Imagine the Democrats actually being the pro-war party on the Syria issue, with Republican's being critical. Are you kidding??? Anything to make the Dem's look bad so the Republican party puppets of the Koch brothers et al can take power.

Your an example of what UCe is talking about. You must be great fun to have a beer with.
- Comment on Preseason wraps up with back-to-back games against Senators (2013-09-24 20:08:50)
Trinfan - Exactly right. Kudos to Bergevin for laying the groundwork in a very short timeframe. Bergevin got a lot of flack for missing out on a couple of other potential picks at 25 when he took McCarron and the 3rd round pick of Crisp. But, he took the bull by the horns and focused on a huge need. One thing you didnt mention is the fact that we will have a superlative D. I predict our D in two years: Subban, Tinordi, Beaulieu, Emelin, Paterlyn, and Deitz (watch out for him - he's going to be the big surprise), with Ellis, Thrower and Bennett as other possibilities. Guaranteed one of the tops in the league.

There have been many posts here over the past couple of years on how we should 'get back' at the filthy goon Maple Leafs and Bruins, and now at the Senators. Let's go back say 30 years or so. The Broad Street Bullies won two Stanley Cups in a row (1973-74 and 74-75) thanks to Bobby Clarke's stick and Dave Shultz's and Don Saleski's (among others) elbows and fists. Were they the most talented team? Not a chance, but no other team could match them in terms of intimidation, and teams like the talented speedy Habs had to do something. Pierre Bouchard just wasn't enough, mainly because he was a 6th D at best talent-wise and couldn't be used often enough to combat all the Flyer goons. The genius of Sam Pollack was to recognize trends as they were happening and not get flat-footed. In addition to the drafting of the Shutt's and Lafleur's, who else did he draft in the early 70's? Guys like Chartraw, Gainey, Trembley, Lambert, Risebrough, Robinson. Tough as nails, weren't gonna be involved with goon-like shenanigans, but were ready to go, whenever, wherever (for Gainey, this meant crunching bodychecks, less focus on fisticuffs). How do you handle goonery?? Its Larry Robinson - one of your top players - putting a beating on Schultz that ended the intimidation factor for the Flyers over the Habs. That's how you respond. Not with slashes, spears or shoves from behind into the glass or posts. You preserve your integrity and deliver the message the right way.
