    Didn't watch the game. Glad I didn't. The outcome was easily predictable. TB was P-O'ed about being swept in the playoffs. They were very hungry to prove it was a fluke and maybe it was. The takeaway is simple. Montreal cannot play like they've been (lucky), eeking out wins, with no PP, keystone cops defense and a pop-gun offense which shows Max for what he is every year. Hot and cold (and he's our only true offensive star, right now. Pleks has been great, but Gally isn't there yet... who else? Really?) So buckle-up folks. This is a middling NHL team that will fight to get into the playoffs and then who knows, but it isn't a 1970's edition of Les Canadiens, that's for damn sure! I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...

    I'm thinking they'll be letting Budaj go as they have 23 in the line-up right now. If they bring back Frankie, who else leaves? I'd hate to see Tiny get bumped... I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...

    By the way, I'll change my avatar when the roster is set. Not so Smurph-like anymore with Gionta, Frankie and the local kid gone (now the Canadiens site has two real stars instead of local boy Briere there to appease the know-nothings) I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...

    Anyone surprised at who was returned from the rookie camp? I only know a bit about Hawkey and I'm not surprised, but the others? I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...

    Really? Grapes is back? That says a lot about the new programming chiefs. Grapes should have been tarred and feathered and dragged through the streets of Montreal. His side-kick too... I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...
  • Comment on (AUDIO) Subban signs eight-year deal with Habs averaging $9 million a season (2014-08-03 02:56:50)
    Sittin' in Utah hungering for any Habs news, I sat down to read this horrid bit of news. 23 players on payroll and this big dump for one guy. Sure, it's PK, but I don't understand how the Habs were offering $5.25 million then bump up to $9 million a year over eight years when PK wanted $8.5. Same with Eller where they did a deal for $1 million plus more than Eller wanted. So, we now have the most expensive work in progress defenceman in the league and we still have trouble scoring 5 on 5. It ain't gonna be an easy year next year folks and yup, it is all about money. In that PK was not being genuine. We are F**ked... Back to summer until September! I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...
  • Comment on Subban and Eller file for salary arbitration (2014-07-07 09:09:36)
    Wouldn't agree with almost always come out to play. Part of the problem is the Jekyll & Hyde team that we had, sometimes they show up, sometimes they just skate around and don't shoot, like when they lost the 1-0 game to NYR to end our Cup run. That inconsistency and the maddening line changes and benchings, along with his what I saw as mismanagement of younger players in deference to veterans like Franky, well this makes me very uncomfortable with MT, who with 4 more years here just leads me to believe his juggling got him an extension, but I don't see him here for the length of that contract. I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...

    Agreed. Always a voice of reason you are! I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...

    Hey Trini! Sekac is a young kid at 22. I can't see him transitioning from Lev to the NHL right away, but he's the right size and spirit. Frankly... we're a bigger team now, with more talent on the upswing, so I'm happy with all the moves and there were plenty. I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...

    Well Puffin, you must not have watched a lot of games. Gorges was a ZERO when it came to puck moving and offense. His slot passes were nil, his body was rarely used all he did was shot block and stay in the D zone. When he was signed for $3.9 million for that long period, I was ill. Frankly, thank you for your services Josh, don't forget your pom-poms, we need to win the cup and he wasn't in MB's plans. Top marks MB for clearing the cap space and moving someone who didn't inspire fear in anyone. I'm pissed! 21 years and counting...
