- Comment on Markov looking for three-year, $18-million deal: report (2014-06-16 18:43:09)
I'd like to see Evander Kane in a Habs jersey, I don't mind him scoring less than 30 goals in the regular season, as long as he doesn't float and stay out of the dirty area during the playoffs. Who cares that he has a ''bad'' behaviour off the ice? Didn't people say the same thing about Carter and Richards? Take a look at the Kings, they didn't even have a 39 goal scorer in the regular season, did that prevent them from becoming champions? I'm a believer of Kane, just like I was of Bourque's and Eller's. I'd go after Dominic Moore too, I don't think he would mind coming back to MTL.

Abomination! Photo of Hab and Leaf together.

And Eller didn't play well enough in the playoffs to get pp time. Perhaps, scratching Tinordi for the remainder of the season wasn't the right decision, I remember those mistakes he made, I wasn't even mad at him, you learned from making mistakes, all Therien did was calling him out in front of the media and sratching him. It was fun to see Gorges get pounded by the Rangers.

I never liked Therrien's live and die with his veterans philosophy. A young player makes a mistake, he gets benched or scratched the next game. Terrible management of Eller and Tinordi last season.
- Comment on The Kings of the NHL (2014-06-14 12:02:45)
Don't be fooled, the Habs are nowhere near the same level as the Kings. The only clutch players we have are Price and Subban, the Kings have way more players that can step up their game while playing under pressure. Aside from a few moments, we were dominated by the Bruins, they hit so many posts and missed a lot of wide open nets, there were some games that we didn't even deserve to win, we just happened to have the favorable bounces. Not to mention that great teams overcome adversity such as make-up calls, bad bounces and INJURIES. Would the Kings had won the cup if Quick was injured? Probably not, but I can guarantee you that they would had fought until the end and not look half dead like the Habs did in game 6 against the Rangers.

Congratulations to the KINGS! Thank you for giving us the craziest playoff run to the Stanley Cup in years. Your team had to be special to come back in those series and overcome all those two-goal deficits. It took skills and grit. Very cool of Justin Williams to say a few words in french on RDS to us fans in Montreal. Mr. Clutch, Mr. Game 7, it doesn't matter how you call him, he never failed to make the difference when it mattered. Jeff Carter, one of the most underrated players in the league, I liked how he carried the two youngsters throughout the playoffs, especially in the finals when they seemed more nervous. What can I say about Alec Martinez? I was so impressed by his decisions, he kept his plays simple and even scored game winning goals. Last but not least, the Captain, Dustin did the little things on the ice that either led to a goal or kept a goal from being scored against us. We should remember that play he made before Gaborik scored the tying goal against the Hawks in game 7 of the conference finals for a long time. To the other NHL teams, take a good look at the Kings, this is how you build a champion team.

A former ref and now a radio host. He was the one that leaked the news that Kovalev was traded to the Habs.

According to Ron Fournier, Bergevin is trying to trade one of the Habs' top forwards for a D. All he said was that it wasn't Plekanec and that the trade will make headline if the deal works out.
