I just read an article about the new arena in Quebec City. Question, if Quebec City is granted a team, will that mean that all Canadians living east of a certain point between Montreal and Quebec City will have to get the NHL Center Ice package in order to watch the Habs locally televised games? If that's the case I wonder how that transition will go.

I would like that they Leave them alone. Stop polluting their water and cutting their trees and let them live a simplier life where they don't have to earn money to keep what they always had.
- Comment on Subban and Eller file for salary arbitration (2014-07-06 02:17:09)
Keep seeing the name Shea Weber here. Weber signed his entry level contract, then signed a 3 year "bridge contract". When Nashville couldn't come with an agreement after that contract, they went through arbitration. Weber was awarded a 1 year 7.5M contract. The following year Weber signed an offer sheet from the Flyers, a 14 years with 7.8M cap hit. The Predators matched. Subban's situation is not unique, nor is it an indication of a lack of respect by the Montreal organization. It's just business. Now, if you're asking if MB is dealing with it properly, I have my doubts, but I'll wait and see. Edit: Found This, keep in mind it was 3 years ago: An arbitrator has awarded Nashville Predators defenceman Shea Weber a one-year contract worth $7.5 million. The amount represents the largest such award in NHL history. The Nashville captain had been seeking $8.5 million from his club, while the team countered with an offer of $4.75 million. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=373133
- Comment on Former Hab Ryan White looking for a new team (2014-07-05 00:25:39)
I still don't understand what a petition to Rogers will accomplish. I do, however, like the passion expressed by the fans outside of Quebec. Quick question, could RDS sell its rights (the game that they broadcast) to TVA Sport for the territory west of Quebec? Would it be profitable to TVA? When RDS broadcasted their game west of Quebec was there any advertising from local companies or were the ads the same as the ones shown in Quebec?

Sorry if it has already been posted, but this is an interview from 1992 with MB in French. Around 4:14 he explained why he felt he would never play for the Canadiens. Interesting stuff. http://youtu.be/lRi7c2yAQSs

Anybody watch Parenteau taking a tour of the Brossard facility. In the locker, he pointed at Desharnais's spot and said that want to be "not too far from him". Is he friends with him? They both played for the Sagneens, but not together. Is it possible some players around the league really value playing with him? I can't grasp my mind around it, I thought his contract was a big mistake when signed, but he ended up being the best scoring center last year, even with a bad start. Could he be the next captain? http://qmjhl.uploads.mrx.ca/league/images/en/import/CHI_desharnais_1_0607.jpg But seriously, why his name is not in the survey? If Gallagher is there...

$3,842,500. That's the amount of money 26 years old Ryan White has made so far, playing 141 games in the NHL and 179 in the AHL. In other word, if you're making 100K per year, it will take you 38 years to accumulate the same amount of money Ryan White has made up to this point. Love the guy, but there is no place for pity here. http://www.capgeek.com/player/1258
- Comment on Gionta, Gorges headed to Sabres; Habs sign Malhotra, Weaver and others (2014-07-02 20:16:32)
Vanek, Boyle, Nabokov, Thomas, Visnovsky. All players who have been acquired by the isles and refused to sign or report to the team. Giving too much money to players is the only way Garth Snow can attract them. The dumb move was to trade one of the few guys that enjoyed playing there, Matt Moulson.
