You are feeling courageous today !! As I think about this, there actually could be an interesting deal to be made.

I think it's the perceived weakness in comparison to the powerhouses of the west. In my view, it's Tampa Bay that is Mt.'s only real threat in the east. cheers

... wicked It's too bad the Leaf's mgt screwed up his contract to make him untouchable. The incompetence of Leaf's mgt never ceases to amaze me. Actually, the Leafs mgt group would make a terrific Business School textbook case study in mismanagement.

Bom Dias from the Algarve Am I missing something ? Bournival remains with the big club but produces no points, while Hudon, Dumont, Carr, Andy remain in H'ton champing at the bit. So exciting to see the team do so well. Just inspirational to see such strong team spirit. I'm certain MB is working to find ways of improving the club even more in coming days. What a great team Cheers to all George K
- Comment on Sabres vs. Habs preview: Price named NHL’s first star of the week; de la Rose called up from Hamilton (2015-02-03 08:15:59)
Why are they bothering to bring up de la Rose ? He has done nothing to distinguish himself in H'ton. Why are they keeping Bournival at all ? He has done nothing in Mtl, and he did nothing in H'ton. Only Dumont & Andrighetto from H'ton have produced so far. They have earned their second look. And Hudon and maybe Hensik in H'ton have earned a call-up too. The rest are journeymen, forgettable gap fillers at best. Only a very few can make it in the NHL.

Rumors abound about MB being interested in another d'man. Our boys have among the lowest goals against. So why not trade for a scoring forward. Reliance on Paccioretty doesn't seem a good plan. .... just a thought. Cheers from the Algarve

Oh boy - an afternoon game. I'll know the score before I go and embarrass myself at karaoke here n Portugal Cheers to all
- Comment on Canadiens hit all-star break on a high (2015-01-22 00:20:30)
So glad our boys have a few days off to mend any aches and pains. Terrific to have time off when they can savor the win before the break - really good psychologically. We're in the Algarve for the winter and 5 hours ahead, so I never see the games, and don't get the scores until the next morning. (Florida is a warmer and more comfortable destination) I'm waiting for MB to make a deal for another rental at the March trade deadline. Cheers to all
- Comment on Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from HI/O (2014-12-25 12:31:32)
I'm in the Algarve for 3 months. It's beautiful here in the day but gets cool at night. Because we Re 5 hours ahead, I can't stay awake long enough to catch the games. It has been heartening to see our boys do so well recently. With the new first line, I think we're in for a surge of wins. Also, I'm really pleased that Sven A is getting his chance to make it onto the big club. I have immense respect for anyone that leaves his home country, doesn't get drafted and succeeds in the minors, and then gets drafted, and shows such resolve. He shows real character. Anyway, all the best to everyone for a nice holiday. Cheers george k

... so here I am in the Algarve for the winter. I'm 5 hours ahead and I'll be unable to stay awake for the game. Kind of cool here actually, low 60's, but the nights are even cooler without central heating. I do like the new line-up. I'm hoping this stays fixed for a while and that Sven A gets a good chance to prove himself. A win tonite would be proof of the pudding Happy Christmas all george k
