- Comment on Game Within the Game: Beaulieu provides a breath of fresh air on Habs’ blue line (2015-01-19 11:13:44)
BriPro....I am a huge hater of this deal too. Live in GTA and use to watch all games on RDS for $2 extra a month on my Shaw Bill. But no more. Just getting half the games on various channels throughout the season. Lucky for me, I do have all SN and TSN channels, so if it's one of the 42 National games, I will get it. But you are in MTL and the game was blackout? I know my nephew in MTL was upset cause the game was on SN and he doesn't have SN in his cable package. So he lives in MTL and misses some games. Not everyone can afford to pay a few more $ a month to add more sports channel. the dumbest thing....last weeks game in Ott. Game was on SNE...blackout in GTA. It was also on TSN5...and it wasn't blackout!!!?? How does that work? Hey I'm not complaining as I got to watch a game I did not expect to see. It's all so dumb!

disagree HH999....we have only 2 needs....a top 6 scoring winger (25-30 goal guy) and a tough top 4 dman. We don't need depth moves (ie Bernier). Our depth is solid, our AHL frwds can do the job in a small role and we have D depth. So I hope he doesn't trade away any assets for depth moves. As for Vermette, don't know his game this year. Is he a 25+ goal scorer with size/toughness? If yes then go for it. If not, move on

Good post. I'm just a few years older then you, and I can say that every time I played ball hockey with my son on the drive way...we'd always end up "dropping the gloves" and having fun with that part of hockey. Something always lead to that. He is 14 now and loves fighting in hockey (watching it). Me and my hubby are now just past 40 and both of us hate fighting in hockey. Maybe with age things change. As a huge hockey fan, I don't once watch a game and think "that was a good game" and recall a fight as a reason for it. But I do get a knot in my stomach now when fights break out in a game, and I find it stops my enjoyment of the game. And it does bother me that kids enjoy fighting in hockey. I don't think any "outside" force will ever be the reason for it being removed. At one point, maybe after someone dies, that players will come together and want it gone. The only outside force that may change it would be $$$$$$$, like new ad companies, broadcasters etc. But doubt it. I also don't know Prust, Pleks or any of the players. But in my mind I have/do believe that they actually do not like fighting in hockey. Sure no player wants to be out of a job...but most of the "only" fighter players out there are gone. I think guys like Prust would prefer not to fight. And I can't imagine the non fighters enjoy it, except that they get a breather for a few minutes.
- Comment on About last night … (2014-12-31 12:09:04)
Was at game last night. Felt bad for panther players/fans as it felt like a habs home playoff game. Atmosphere was great! Impressed by: beaulieu, Gonchar (when not pressured in D zone lol) Also impressed by Gallagher (seeing him live is even more incredible then what u see on TV). Galchenyuk, sekac, and the hard work of Ghetto/Bournival (you can tell those guys playing in hopes of not being sent down). Would have liked to see more from Pleks/Eller. DD tries hard every shift. Patches seemed like the 3rd wheel on his line lol! Game is so much faster then what u see on TV

I will be at game tonight as we are vacationing here in Flda. I got my tixs a few days ago by calling the local french newspaper called Le Soliel de la Floride. You can order tixs from them saving a few dollars off of ticketmaster prices (not as much fees). So we got 300 level for $34 all in price. They emailed the tixs to me and I printed them up (had printer at condo) or you can go to their office and pick up (they are in Hollywood). We have gotten tixs from them in the past. Only thing- I had a map of the arena as I was talking to the lady. I thought 300 was 3rd section, but arena recently renumbered so the highest level is no longer 400..its 300. So I'm right up at the top. But hey, I'm still seeing habs live. If I were home I'd be blackouted!!

Merry christmas everyone! We are on vaycay in Flda and my hubby (a leaf fan) just gave me Hab/Panther tixs for Xmas. Woohoo. Haven't seen habs live since the G boys joined the team. So excited to see them. Hope Price is in net! Altho habs never do well in Flda, plus b2b games. Hope it's a good game!

I think the best thing for them is to do a multi player deal, cause the team really needs a change. they need a lot more then just one for one swap. Or Perron for one player plus prospect. If they want to be respectable NOW they need to do a multi player move, change it up. If they want to throw in the towel, hope for MCD draft, and rebuild AGIAN, then sure trade away Perron for a roster player plus picks/prospects. If it's the 2nd scenario, Habs would be able to offer something good. But if it's the multi player deal type....MTL doesn't need to bring in 2-3 new players....or remove 2-3 players from this 1st place team.

Well management seems to like to reward their AHL players when they need a call up. I can see him given a short look. Sure Beau wouldn't be happy. Thing is, we already have 7 dmen with the team. 2 would have to get hurt before the team calls up a Dman.

Junior hockey is a looooooonnnnnggg way from NHL. Years have past by, and if he was a "star" in CHL he obviously didn't have enough in him to translate to AHL and NHL. Not to knock the kid. As a 2nd rounder, he is probably a NHLer. But he's a bottom guy, there won't be any "hanging on to our hats" if he's on the ice when PK is.
