- Comment on CTV’s Brian Wilde this week’s guest on HI/O Show (2013-12-12 10:18:19)
For a city that spawned the likes of Dick Irvin, Danny Gallivan, Jacques Beauchamp, Red Fisher, Rene Lacavalier etc Brian Wilde and Tony Marinaro are two of the biggest clowns on the Montreal sports scene.
- Comment on About last night … (2013-01-30 11:28:03)
Love some of the comments regarding PK. Seems most are trying to make a big deal of his holdout. The kid was trying to get what some of what he's seen some ridiculous GM's willing to pay. Can't blame him..but this is not a knock on his character or him not being a team player Good on MB for showing him how he will be part of a winning formula both on and off the ice. This is the Montreal Canadiens not the Minnesota Wild. Can't wait to see him in the lineup!Go Habs Go!
- Comment on Red Fisher on 40th anniversary of Summit Series (2012-09-01 11:57:27)
Was at game 1 at the Forum, what a night! Overconfidence...an understatement! up 2-0 before the first 5 minutes...this was going to be a cakewalk. Sitting in the upper deck at the northend of the buiding you could start to see the Russians passing develop. 2 on 1's, 3 on 2's, oh oh... and then came the Team Canada's frustration mount, dumb penalty after dumb pentaly and finally it was over. I recall walking out onto Ste. Catherine street and the eerie quiet of 18,000+ was incredible. An 8 game series that will never be forgotten
- Comment on Is Doan ready to make a move? (2012-07-30 06:14:03)
Enough with all the Doan talk, We have a new GM, coach, front office and a stock pile of young talented players 2-3 years from making some real noise. Lets stop with the "immediate gratification" nonsense. Sign PK and lets move forward with a team that will prove exciting and entertaining and enjoy watching a "real" future develop.
- Comment on Audio: Price signs for six years, $39 million (2012-07-03 10:21:30)
I Love what MB is doing! Signing Price at that term/price was a no brainer. PK next and no monstrous Free agent contracts. Lots of youth/potential in the tunnel and the future looks bright...Love IT!
- Comment on Red Fisher hangs ‘em up (2012-06-08 11:49:57)
I've been reading Red since I was old enough to read circa 1960. Always a class act whether you agreed with him or not. The end of an era for sure. All the greats are now gone Red, Dick Irvin, Danny Gallivan. All the best Red and thanks for the memories!
- Comment on Liveblog: Devils edge Kings 3-1, series goes back to Jersey (2012-06-06 19:30:41)
The Therrien hiring is a done deal. Bergevin gets a mulligan and lets move forward. What happens next is what is important. MT bitching about last years Habs on L'Antichambre...Now he has to put his money where his mouth was. Get it Done!
- Comment on Canadiens name Therrien coach (2012-06-05 06:48:36)
I had such high hopes...this is a monumental error!
- Comment on Liveblog: Kings win 4-0, dust off the brooms (2012-06-04 21:02:48)
As a lifelong Montrealer now living in Ontario it still surprises me that some of my English Montreal friends are surprised by the level of bigotry by some hard line francophones. They have made you second class citizens in your own hometown. Unbelievable!
- Comment on Liveblog: Canadiens lose shootout in Carolina (2012-04-05 16:48:45)
An interesting discussion I spent the first 40 years of my life living and loving Montreal. The years of Expo67 , the Olympics , Montreal was the center of the Canadian universe. The decay started just after that with the first referendum and thousands heading down the 401 Francophones chose their language over their economy. We became 2nd class citizens. The great city of Jean Drapeau has been turned into " Cleveland " and continues to decay well beyond infrastructure. I love my Habs and enjoy visiting the city to see old friends but in my opinion Montreal will never be Montreal again
