- Comment on Cournoyer speaks about vacant Habs captaincy (2014-08-26 15:29:28)
I`ll grant him that the announcement of his hiring had a definite boost effect on the team but he did not seem to fit at any time with this squad. He did the job , no more,no less but his mind was set on Minnesota anyway. Genie got through round one in 58 minutes 6-2 6-1 nice !
- Comment on Cournoyer speaks about vacant Habs captaincy (2014-08-25 12:47:39)
Yvan Cournoyer. Top 5 best skaters all time in my book ! I feel that this squad should be confident enough and know who would be the perfect fit for the captain job. Do not mind who it is but as long as the players get to choose it`s fine by me. Do not believe in alternate captains though... As much as i find that big Georges Laraque is a colourfull individual, i am really starting to find him pityfull. Now he regrets having done the ice bucket challenge and takes back his association to the cause because to cure Lou Gherig disease they would have to test products on animals so ... Everyone is entitled to their opinion but BGL `s are sometimes if not croocked at least far fetched.
- Comment on Stubbs is all wet (don’t say it) for ALS research (2014-08-23 15:47:16)
Had they made a close-up on those uniforms i am sure we could have seen little bears and little cars...Last week`s Saskatchewan`s uniforms were not much better with the lime green touch...Sometimes i think they try too hard. They should work on the on the field product... Concerning my Als this is such a painfull season. Worst than what i had expected. Promissing signs in the last 2 games but still...Seems like there is no chemistry between every different squad on the team . Football is a close familly affair and rumors are that 85 did not help in the process. Never understood that move either and letting go Jamel even if he was on IRL. ... Everything is going wrong this season and every game you have stupid pee-wee penalties that breaks the rythm if there was any... I must be a real real die hard fan to keep on listening to every game still...
- Comment on Will 2015 be the year Habs end Stanley Cup drought? (2014-08-21 17:34:10)
Wow ! Talk about a question that goes straight to the point ! I think the Habs are somewhere around the 5th or 6 th best but not in the top 4. But once you hover close to the top you never know. I think this team is not quite there yet. Either one player away or one year away. There are a lot of unknowns that are not necessarely negative. I expect PA to do more than Briere. I also want a guy like Chucky to take a bit of Gio`s place. I expect a lot more from Moen that may be on his way out .. I can`t wait to see how much Weise can give us on a full schedule. Not worried with the d-squad time to trust the kids and live with it. Mystery man Sekac still puzzles me... Almost forgot, i expect P.K. to be the man ! I think we will have about the same results points wise ,should do better on special teams but will also have to live with the decision to go with a few young inexperienced players. Experience might just be the key word here at least in the playoffs. We just let go over 4000 total played nhl games. I expect you guys to finally come to your senses and admit that Therrien is the best coach we have seen in a long long time. Ya right...
- Comment on Habs will play eight preseason games in 13 days; Kovalev criticizes Subban (2014-08-20 08:14:14)
I do not mind about former players expressing their opinion . It means that they care in a way. It`s much better than the usual do not care as long as we make money attitude ...Former players from teams like the Islanders and the Laffs should express how sad and mad they are about how pityfull their former teams are if they did care a bit. 8 pre-season games in 13 days means we will get to see many many kids and that the veterans will not see much ice time before season`s start. I wish the team could come out flying with the chemistry well established but i understand that MTL is one of the very few places where you can make lots of $$$ at any time of the year...
- Comment on Habs will play eight preseason games in 13 days; Kovalev criticizes Subban (2014-08-19 16:55:45)
How awkward that the last superstar we had in MTL gets to criticize the new superstar. I guess it`s fair game then! As much as the artist has every right to voice his opinion if i had the choice i would rather go with P.K. and all his up sides and down sides knowing that he plays 100% every game rather than a Kovy showing up one game out of..... So in two years Charles Wang is out of here !!! The Islanders will be then a team to look for because of their nice talent pool. Up until then with him still leading until the sale comes through it will be a mediocrity battle with the Laffs and the Sabres again...
- Comment on Markov as next Habs captain? (2014-08-18 19:15:22)
In that category of short term choices i would choose either Prusty or Weise for the energy and commitment they deliver on that squad.

Nice touch ! One week today...
- Comment on Markov as next Habs captain? (2014-08-18 19:11:48)
As the elderly, Markov should get the C. But i am far from convinced that he wants it. By my reasoning then he should have gotten the C instead of Gio. Not sure either about Plek wanting it so...Not giving it to Price either not that he is not our leader it`s just that he needs to stay in his bubble... Max Pac is the perfect example of what is a leader and it has nothing to do with scoring. He will stand for his team, always wants more of himself and always delivers and effort each and every game. I have changed my mind about P.K. I would give it to him. He is here for the long run, is dedicated,works hard and is already mister MTL . I am willing to deal with whatever mistakes he does cause he is the only one on the roster and the first one in a while that can win me that game now. He is a game changer and this is a rare breed. Perfect scenario would be Markov for the end of his stint and then P.K. I will support any candidate as long as he is chosen by his teammates.
