Morning Burly. I'll admit to my bias where it comes to all things PK. I'm not sure why the Richards mouth incident has stuck with me for so long. I guess my opinion of Gionta will not change. At 730 tonight it will be a fleeing thought. Hockey is back!

Hiya Ian. I did meet Fred. Cool guy but every farmer I've ever met us a cool guy. :)

Hi Uke. I responded with something similar below. You and I are in agreement here. Plus I'm sure Habfab or 24 will remind us of the Cap restrictions. CHeers.

Hiya Slack. The development of Patches as a complete player has been incredible. I think most of us thought he'd be a pretty good goal scorer but not many thought of him as being one of the best forwards in the entire league. Now if we could just clone him.

Morning Cal. I'm game for that. For the record I watched NONE of any of the events of ALL Star weekend. Does nothing for me. Pro Bowl, MLB All Star game, NBA, NHL, does nothing for me. Now I did watch a bit of the AHL game though as I wanted to see Hudon in action. I'm glad I did. I can now pronounce his name correctly. :)

Vanek part II? Plays when he feels like it. I'll pass.

Good morning gang! I like many here that have posted, are smiling at the fate of Richards. Like someone said yesterday, it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy! If Lombordi was my GM I'd be none to happy that he failed to take advantage of a compliance buyout. Now what? While smiling about Richards demise I can't help but think back on a bad period of Hab history. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the Habs leadership at the time failed BIG time during PK's rookie season. Right or wrong, Gionta and the other so called leaders of the team at the time should have publicly defended PK. Privately if they felt the need, a different message could have been delivered. What we got from the worst captain in Canadien history (IMO) was nothing. The only Hab who publicly came to defend a teammate at the time was Gomez. Our captain? His typical arrogant smirk. Hal Gill? A joke or two? Markov? His usual no comment. I've forgiven Gill and Markov. Their reaction was more about their own personality then PK. Gionta? A different story. I don't know why this has stuck in my craw so much but it has. I never liked Gionta after that event. I'm glad he no longer wears the Habs colors. I'm elated he is no longer the captain. You defend a teammate, right or wrong. Gionta failed in his responsibility as captain. Perhaps Richards can find a new sucker, eh ah home in Buffalo. I think the two deserve each other.

Morning Shane! It seems like we haven't had hockey for weeks. Can't wait.

Game is being televised on MSG here. I now know how to pronounce his name. Been calling him similar to Hudson as in the river but now know it's WHO DON. Learn something everyday.
