Dion will not be going back to the Flames. Remember Chelios and the reason(s) he left Montreal?! Well Dion chose the same kind of path, and now he is an AGM with the club....
- Comment on Game Within the Game: Therrien’s jerry-built lines don’t work vs. Flames (2014-11-03 10:11:47)
It's almost like they went out on the Saturday night and painted the town red. Looked to me like a beer league hockey team in a tournament after going out the night before. Only thing that makes sense to me. Markov being the only player who stayed in his hotel room. ;)
- Comment on Canadiens head home from Vancouver with NHL’s best record; Canucks’ Burrows suspended three games (2014-10-31 14:29:29)
Was able to attend Habs-Flames this past Tuesday. It was the closest crowd experiance to being in Montreal (been to 2 Habs-Bruins and 1 Habs-Isles). Crowd was into the whole game, Habs didn't play all that well except CP31 and AG27. Best part of the game: after was all said and done, Sitting behind us was Dustin Tokarskis parents. His dad introduced himself after the victory and commented that my brother and I were some of the best fans he has seen. (Beer helps). He then proceeded to invite us to meet Dustin before they boarded the bus. Of course we obliged but alas, they were only allowed so many people with them. *Its the thought that counts. I did as him what Dustins thoughts were about the team. First off Carey Price is his idol and the dressing room is tight. It's a very long season but hearing this can only give a positive vibe moving forward.

If you are a Shaw customer in calgary, you can get Center Ice for 135 IF you get put through to their customer service people and sign up for their customer program. Took some wrangling but I did it!!
- Comment on Liveblog: Canadiens blow lead, end preseason with L (2014-10-04 22:17:53)
I live in Calgary and decided to purchase Center Ice via Shaw. I was able to negotiate it down to 135 for the year, long time customer. Good luck!
- Comment on Pacioretty out for three weeks with left hamstring strain (Video) (2013-10-18 00:16:18)
Gutsy win after blowing lead. Cheers!!
- Comment on ‘I have no idea what to expect,’ Bergevin says of No. 25 pick (2013-06-23 10:56:42)
Via Rotoworld a couple days past there was a quote taken from NHL.com on how much Bickell enjoys playing against Chara. That alone should be all the reason needed for MB to make a play in retaining his services.
- Comment on Habs sign Drewiske to two-year deal (2013-06-13 12:22:47)
625k, 650k. Reasonable price indeed.
- Comment on Habs sign Drewiske to two-year deal (2013-06-13 12:13:04)
MB and company know what they have with Drewskie. Depth signing with a low impact to the cap while the prospect dmen continue to develop.
- Comment on Size isn’t a problem with Habs, Plekanec says (2013-05-14 18:56:13)
Making up for the McD loss possibly? Anyway you slice it size and skill are on their way. Two rookies added this shortened season, plus some exposure for other prospects. The future is bright moving forward. Random thought, Gionta and Markovs last year on the books, a win-win really. Extra player motivation coupled with flexibility for MB. Do or do not, there is no try.
