- Comment on Leaving Habs was ‘family decision’ for Brisebois (2014-07-23 19:12:55)
Been droping by reading a few comments but staying away from writing wich in my book at this stage is either repeating old stuff or pure hallucinations. But today i felt i had to write on a few subjects. What the hell is wrong with Toronto`s medias ? 2 years left on Stamkos deal and they are sure he is going to be a Leaf when it`s done ? That should show you how sometimes we really do not make any sense and look like total (add whatever foul word you want here)... If i were in a pro hockey player`s position once my carreer is done on the ice i would do exactly like Brisebois and spend those precious years with the kids and wife. Would come back later on but when you are young and healthy and financially spoiled why not ? So it`s not because of Therrien after all !! (barely hidden sarcasm) D.D. is not going anywhere soon. Deal with it. Like this Sherback kid. Saw his highlights reel from last season in WHL on youtube and really like his style, likes to go in traffic and in the crease. But he is a kid ! Will get his 9 nine games trial and will be sent back in WHL. This is where Brisebois and Lapointe usually stepped in to make sure that this precious energy is well spent and that the kid aims high and who knows ? But i think that the not so hidden card anymore is the Sekac guy. I think he will get the gig . Will be back to comment when Larry and P.K. get their deals done. Enjoy summer everyone !

Sad to see Brisebois go , an all around good guy , CH for life. More so than Gallant`s position this one really really needs to be filled because there is such a huge step between AHL nd NHL on and off the ice that this is the wisest investment a professionnal team can do. Don`t get me wrong Gallant also needs to be replaced and it will probably serve a positive purpose although it was sad to see him go too. Brisebois leaves at a key timing in Hamilton`s new management`s input when lots of new faces will be seen on the ice. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do !

I am getting older and wiser...well sometimes. I often read comments and choose not to reply even if the comment makes no sense and shocks me. Everyone has their own opinion and whatever i write will not change people so...i usually go on and change website... But today i know that it will not change anything and i understand all about that fantasy stuff but i just cannot believe that you guys would comment for 24 hours !!! on a trade that makes no sense, issued from a guy that is a known fraud ! Come on ! We are better than this are we ? Don`t answer... Have a nice day guys !

Agree with you Ukranianhab. This guy is a pathetic excuse for a soccer player. But it worked ! He broke the rythm so often that it only took one surge and that was it ! Otherwise i have seen many many many better games. Hats off to both teams to have made it that far and pushed the final to the limit but it was not a classic.

That remains to be seen Ukranianhab . One cannot only look at demographics curves to look in the future . Friends of mine coming from other countries and even more their kids are huge hockey fans now that they have been here for years. They still like soccer but not at the same level as hockey because they got used to the high level of action,speed and the wave of fanaticism that goes with the sport . So soccer will pick up fans yes but so will hockey so the trend will not be reversed really. Maybe % will be more equal but if it has not been already the case in 2014, i do not see why it would change that much in the coming years.

On the la Presse newspaper website today the poll question is Are you a soccer fan ? 6400 answers so far yes 10 % more and more 16 % no 73 % It sounds about right. Although we are a multicultural country still european football remains a secondary sport in our preferences. It is just not as in our soul and in our blood as hockey is i guess.

Last season best case scenario was that McCarron was 3 to 4 years away from making it with Habs. Was never that good in school but i think as of today it still leaves him a good 3 years to work hard before he can measure up. He is a kid, a big one but a kid that needs to push his limits and continue to do what got him that far. But from what i heard he had a tough year and is far from being ready to play with men. Difficult to judge what would be best for him though because with his size and type of game he cannot be compared to other kids his age on skills,speed and hockey abilities.

I`d like to be as optimistic as you are Ian but i think we are not quite there yet although as you listed there are signs. I will add to that list for the first time last season i saw penalties being handed out between two fighters getting obviously ready to drop `em at a stage fight on a faceoff. It was Parros and i think Thornton but not certain on that last one. I think that with the new trend of players going to court against professional leagues for concussion issues it will be the last nail in the coffin ( bad choice of word) for the goons that cannot play hockey first and then be physical. We are going towards a cleaner game but just how much and when remains to be seen. Just do not know if i still will be on this earth when the clean up is complete !
