    Thanks for the heads up, DipsyDoodler, what a stupid comment by that troll HelluHabbies saying "the team takes its French heritage so seriously (from an outside perspective, coaching controversy, singing part of the anthem in 'French')" Seriously !!!?

    Didn't know about the personal life stuff. But I have had the chance to watch him several times this year in Vancouver and he was by far the best Giant on the roster. Another level. Not that he was extremely skilled or PK-esque, no. But the rest of the Giants squad was relatively weak and unimpressive so I guess he stood out. Im just wonder how high his ceiling is. He has the skating ability of Beaulieu or PK. But he does throw solid hits, moves the puck well, has a good shot, and seems to be a leader on the ice, so we'll see ! With Subbie, Chucky & Larsy...

    That's the reason why I'm here UCe. :) I drove down from Vancouver with a couple friends to take advantage of good weather, phenomenal views, and everything else California has to offer. Oh yeah, and Cali happens to have three elite hockey teams. Also, at one point yesterday Corey Perry gave me eye contact for a second before firing a shot into the glass where I was sitting (had there been no glass, it would have been my face ) as a "get the hell outta the front row, hab fan" type gesture. But in all seriousness, I noticed he pays lots of attention to pleasing fans during warmups. He and Getzlaf are great for this franchise, and no wonder they don't ever want to leave orange county. And another note ... Sitting next to me was a family (parents & two daughters) who've held duck season tickets since '93 inaugural season and were going all crazy throughout the game. Yeah SoCal is not Quebec when it comes to hockey fans, but the game is growing, and the atmosphere in both LA and the OC was way more exciting what I had envisioned. Props to Bettman for helping grow the game in the South (this is coming from a bettman-hater) With Subbie, Chucky & Larsy... The Future is Bright !

    Hello Commentariat, I am in Southern California and watched the Habs play the Kings and Ducks so here are a few comments: - Comparing both games, it almost looks like two different teams. What a difference energy levels & commitment can make ! The boys looked gassed after that 6 hour flight and it showed in their execution. - Bourque hits really hard and seems to implicate himself more than I had thought. However it seems that he just lacks hockey IQ, not being able to know where his linemates are on the ice and not making very good decisions as a result. - I was sitting behind Hiller's goal (first row behind the glass) and with one of the first hits of the game Moen practiacally broke the glass (they needed to call a repair crew to make sure it was OK.) I almost jumped out of my seat. However can't recall seing Moen much the rest of the game. - Gallagher is a fireball. Amazing to watch him handle the puck. His hands and stickhandling ability is way underrated. You always people say "he plays with grit" and "fights for every inch" but lets be honest, if this kid wasn't so good at protecting the puck, he wouldn't be performing so well. He's got a rare mix of natural ability (he was an elite scorer in the WHL, remember?) and strong work ethic. He can stickhandle, pass, shoot, check, what can't he do ? One thing that worries me is when he skates with his head down searching for the puck. Barring injuries, this kid will become an elite scorer at the NHL level. MSL type. - PK is phenomenal. By far the smoothest skating defenseman in the league IMO. Yes, Doughty is a hell of a hockey player. But looking at his footwork there is no comparison with Subban. Subban could probably be a professional figure skater if he wanted to. Also, the strength with which he handles the puck is amazing. Its only a matter of time that he sharpens every other aspect of his game, we sometimes forget he is 24. 3 years and another Norris trophy from now, there will be no argument about who is the best D-man in the league. - Gorges is impressive. His body position, stick position, is always perfect. What a reliable guy. Its sad to see how many people (even on this site) don't see his value to the team, and continually criticize him because he can't make plays like PK can. His skating, passing, and bodycheecking are not impressive but he is never a liability either. - Vanek was ... well, I imagine he will look amazing in bleu-blanc-rouge. Go habs go !

    Well, one thing that can make you feel better is that us West Coasters must wake up at 4am to catch the Gold medal game !!! With Subbie, Chucky & Larsy... The Future is Bright !
  • Comment on Habs call up Beaulieu, Nattinen from Hamilton (2014-01-17 18:49:18)
    Stupid comment. If only you paid attention to the details. Gorges is great without the puck. Stick positioning. Body positioning. Burying the puck into the boards and killing time. PK genius. Fearless shot-blocker. Respected leader by every single one of his teammates, but yeah, I guess he's not good enough for you. Pfff With Subbie, Chucky & Larsy... The Future is Bright !
  • Comment on Brière returns to Habs lineup against Sens; Diaz a healthy scratch (2014-01-04 16:56:35)
    Norway has half the same population as Finland (5m) which is half the population of Sweden, so I don't think its because of that. But perhaps Geography plays a role. Finland and Sweden are mostly flat and have thousands of lakes that freeze up in the winter, whereas Norway is mostly mountainous, which is why, as CJ said, Skiing got in the way of hockey.
