- Comment on Habs deal Cole to Stars for Ryder (2013-02-26 22:09:14)
This is a better trade for habs, a couple reason why: 1. we have just cleared up 4.5 million in cap space next year and we are in need for a top 2 center. 2. this will make room for our new and used prospects by freeing up more ice time for the Gally's and allowing potentials from Hamilton make the roster. 3. Ryder is a better scorer than Cole and would be a nice fit with the younger Gally 4. Cole was having a bad year and Ryder is having one of his best ever. 5. Seeing how our point production comes from all 4 lines, one missing link isn't going to make us lose games.
- Comment on How (and when) will the P.K. Subban Saga end? (2013-01-24 12:24:44)
Here is the problem with 'Elite' players. This sport will always be a team sport. There was never a time when one player won a championship. Even Gretz had help with Messier, Kurri, Fuhr, Coffey, etc. Just look at Ovy, Kovy, the Sedins, etc. If a player demands more than he is worth than trade him. P.K you are talented but haven't played long enough to warrant what you're asking. There is no 'I' in TEAM...

The more P.K talks during this negotiation, the more he seals his fate. You need to recognize what team you are playing for. This is the most storied franchise is SPORTS history. Yes you had a great first two years, however; just how much do you think you are worth??? You need to play more than two years to prove yourself in this league young man. Your best interests should be of the team at this point. What's a two year contract at almost 3 times what you started with? Stop wining and sign the contract. Have a great two years then sign long term. Otherwise we'll see you in another jersey in no time...
- Comment on Canadiens home after winless road trip (2012-02-29 11:32:31)
The majority of our Habs fans will NEVER settle for an English speaking coach. I have one question for you all: Would you rather have the BEST man for the job, or the best FRENCH speaking coach for the job??? If your answer is the best FRENCH speaking coach for the job, then do not expect to win a cup. You cannot have it both ways...
- Comment on Barch suspended one game for shot at P.K. (2012-01-05 17:44:18)
Do you ever write anything that does not bash a comment? Buddy, maybe you should teach English classes to our French fans...
- Comment on Canadiens prepare for year-ender (2011-12-30 14:01:39)
I truly hope that there is someone in the HABS organization and media reading this page and come across my comment. FOR THE PLAYERS: Does anyone on the HABS actually understand what it means to be a Montreal Canadien??? I mean really??? Have they seen the movie 'The Rocket'? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkcFx1p4-Cg Do they understand how far back the history actually goes??? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEfVzv71_UQ Being an NHLer, all professional's deep down, outside of the money and fame truly love the game of hockey, otherwise they wouldn't be a professional playing at such an elite level. And if they truly love the game of hockey, then hockey history is important....isn't it???? Shouldn't heart and a true love for the game show on the ice???? Why doesn't it this year??? Let's stop and think about this one...what truly is the problem???? Is it the fact that the majority of players on les canadiens aren't Canadian??? I doubt that. Is it a deep unconscious hatred for canadian hockey??? Who knows. All I know is playing for les Canadiens is not about language it is about history. It is about what this sport means to the average joe. If you are a player for the habs and are reading this right now please understand what you are playing for. You are playing for the blue collar workers who go home every night looking foward to watch you win!!!! and in Montreal 95% of people are blue collar. Do you understand what it means to work a nine to five for minimum wages and come home to watch the most storied franchise in sports history win???? I am a Montrealer now living in Calgary. I bought the french sports package on Telus Optic, which I can't really afford, to watch each ond every game the habs play. If I miss a game, I use my PVR and tape it. Every single game is sold out! EVERY-SINGLE-GAME no matter what our record is. Doesn't that mean something to you guys??? FOR THE MEDIA: Your energy is all consuming. It is distasteful. How is a team supposed to win if YOU really run the team. Stop bringing negative energy to the rink. It's no wonder players under perform in the red, white and blue...don't you see it???? You focus too much on what's wrong. STOP IT ALREADY!!!!! IT'S ENOUGH!!!!! Mr. Molson: This is your business, start treating it as if it is...Language SHOULDN'T MATTER!!!! (Don't tell your head coach indirectly that his job isn't secure because he doesn't speak french...Should we call this a season then???? What is wrong with you???) If our team WINS, who cares!!!!!! Keeping history obviously matters; however we haven't won a cup in 17 years!!!!! 17 YEARS!!!!! Something has to change??? Doesn't that make sense???? Doesn't it??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Yankees woke up. It's our turn to bring the cup back to where it belongs!!!!!!!! So much more to say.... SHEP
- Comment on Kaberle? Really??? (2011-12-09 15:43:41)
Again with the negative comments....I guess I wasn't clear when I said: POSITIVE RESPONSES WELCOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the reason why we are losing...
- Comment on Kaberle? Really??? (2011-12-09 15:14:33)
One thing is for sure, I've been a habs fan for all my 31 years. I tell you the biggest problem the habs face is the negative energy fans bring. When we win all is good (sort of), when we lose it's time to trade the whole team. Did we ever stop to think what postive vibes do for a team? Yes we are lacking production from our keys vets. Yes our powerplay is in the dumps right now. It doesn't help that we have lost 5 of our starting D'man for most of the year! H0w do we expect to have a good powerplay? Chemistry is a huge part of the game, and with 5 of our top vets missing, no wonder our powerplay is bad. Kaberle had 1 bad year!!!! 1! Give the guy a break!!!! When he helps our powerplay, and he will, all you peeps will be praising the move by JP.... Enough is enough...either get on the band wagon or get the f#$% off... Positives out of all this: Through all these injuries we have found our core for the years to come i.e = Sud, Em, Leblanc, Diaz, Gallager, PAx...etc... Postive responses welcome... Shep
- Comment on Audio: Blueline swap brings Kaberle in deal for Spacek (2011-12-09 12:06:23)
Spacek 37 6'0, Kaberle 34 6'1. (+) Spacek 133, Kaberle 164 = games in 2 years (+) Spacek 343, Kaberle 538 = total reg. season points (+) Spacek +45, Kaberle +19 = +/- rating throughout career (even) I see more positives than negatives....does anyone else???
