I'm with you there mate. My drinking has picked up significantly. This morning it's a superb burgundy that complements a bowl of Wheatabix.

Vanek : A $6.5 million cap hit with the Wild this year. In 6 games he has 0 goals and 4 assists. Someone noted that he looks slow. Could it be that he is eating more now that he's a trillionaire?
- Comment on Habs looking for fourth straight win in Tampa; Plekanec NHL’s first star of week (2014-10-13 13:39:13)
my comment below was intended as a light-hearted rejoinder to le canadien errant I can't seem to reply to a comment; however, that's the least of my worries. I doubted (momentarily, and noone paid me to analyse the situation) MB'S decision-making regarding Gorges and Gionta. I thank the spirits of the grape crops of Tuscany for their forgiveness and their contributions to the well-being of mankind. cheers and Andiamo les canadiens

How could you have advocated his trade ?? Such thinking just won't stand Don't feel bad as I was warning of the consequences of the Gorges and Gionta trades. They would be missed, said I. They added an undefinable something, said I. Well, so far, the results of MB's handling of the personnel and cap files appears positively positive - and my own usually brilliant analysis of he situation is wanting. I'm truly hoping our boys can maintain this inspirational beginning to the season thru the long grueling months. cheers to all George K
- Comment on Canadiens trade Peter Budaj to Winnipeg Jets (2014-10-05 19:43:27)
we knew the change to the goaltending roster was coming when Tokarski was put in net in last year's playoffs. That MB was able to find a trade partner is very commendable. He must have tired very hard to find a landing place for Budaj in a market loaded with goalies. I think MB will be working his fellow GM's in coming days to make another trade or deux. Moen is likely next on his way. I think the team is weakened with the loss of Gionta and Gorges. I believe Gionta is one of the smartest players in the league and is a real leader. PA Parenteau, I'm afraid, does not fill Gionta's roster spot. In pre-season, he's been invisible to me. Gorges, tho sans offense, was a defensive stalwart. Any of a number of the new guys can replace Briere.

Ottawa looked hungry starting in the 2nd period. MOntreal did not. I'm disappointed in the effort
- Comment on Pateryn among five players sent to Hamilton by Habs (2014-10-02 17:38:01)
I think P Budaj's tenure avec les canadiens is coming to an end. MB cannot afford to let a talent like Tokarski to be lost to waivers. As it will ultimately come down to one or the other, I'm betting Budaj is the odd man out.

TVA Sports cites Sports Illustrated as their source for Moen being shopped. It would be nice for Moen to find a second career ... maybe plumbing?

from pre-season game 1, I liked these newbies in order: fWDS: 1. Thomas: I was impressed with his determination to make things happen, and he did with a goal (good hands) and Bowman's goal.. 2. Andrighetto: Such a hard worker. This player is the ultimate 'character ' player. I hope he is seen for what he is - a cast iron will that will win for le s canadiens. (He was the steal in last year's draft who deserves every opportunity !!!!.) 3. Sekac: He's already skilled enough. Last nite he was paired with Plekanec. I want to see him with an AHL'er and see him dominate before I hand him my carte blanche. Defence: 1. Tinordi: Still looked a little reticent. BUT - as tthe game progressed, I think he assumed his responsibility. I really liked his play. 2. I thought Pateryn used Tinordi to set up his (Pateryn;s) strengths. Tinordi was the character player, a mon avis. Nygren: Invisible to me. Findlay: Invisible to me. Final Comment: Les CAnadiens are so fortunate in having MB as GM. Excellent draft choices and guts to make the tough trades. It is the GM that gets my vote as MVP.

I'm thinking Sekac is the front-runner for a job, but tonite his line wasn't good enough to enable him to show his stuff. 6 more pre-seson games and I think we'll have a better idea
