Boone hit the nail on the head when he said that "The Commentariat will be all over my ass for being a Negative Ned". There's more than one Habs website and I'm frequenting this one less and less. Respectfully, it's not a matter of pointing out problems with the team, it's a matter of doing so in an extremely emotional and personal way that encourages readers to be egocentric and self-pitying about it, that reduces objectivity but that, admittedly, may be good marketing to attract the angry 'masses' to tune in to the website.

I guess you don't like Craig Ferguson?

"Time zone" is a term, not a phrase, smarty pants.

On TSN's main page: "Hall of Fame defenceman Larry Robinson appears to be headed to California. According to Montreal Gazette reporter Drew Stubbs, Robinson will be unveiled as an associate coach with the San Jose Sharks on Monday." When you click the link, inside the article it says "Dave" but on the front page it says "Drew Stubbs".

We should sign the overall best players regardless of the language they speak, not sign lesser players just because they're Quebecois. But we musn't sign former Leafs!!!1
- Comment on Canadiens draft Collberg, Thrower in second round; Bozon in third (2012-06-23 18:27:58)
I know what you mean but I find it's a complicated subject matter, I don't really want to get into it but let me give this example: Should we pay more for goal-scorers since goals are more scarce, or should we pay more for defencemen who are able to stop more goals? The question is why are defencemen able to stop more goals? Maybe they're being utilized differently due to a variety of factors and strategies but that means you can get more out of them in a way. In both cases I think it means the best defencemen and forwards are also now to some degree a different *kind* of defenceman and forward.

I think the Schenn / Van Riemsdyk trade is pretty even, mutually beneficial. Philly needs some help on D with Pronger out, and Schenn (who was selected 5th overall) can probably play a lot better than he did in Toronto since his brother is also in Philly, the fans in Toronto were hard on him and the Leafs are the Leafs. Toronto on the other hand was after offense and size, and Van Riemsdyk plays well when it counts to boot. Both players have similar salary and are under contract for a good bit of time. The 'intangible' which I feel makes the deal even (rather than in Toronto's favour) is that defense is becoming more important with goals being harder to come by in the league, as exemplified by the high rate of defencemen being picked high in the draft.

Come on everyone, "raising a finger" to something is a valid expression, the phrasing is perfectly correct.
- Comment on Red Fisher hangs ‘em up (2012-06-09 12:00:26)
He called the protestors clowns, and he called them worse too. I thought he was being cheap because we weren't supposed to talk about politics and he was getting a late jab in. If we *are* encouraged to talk politics, then I may chime in next time...

Perhaps because it's not related to hockey?
