Drewiskie looked outstanding in the Bruins game stepping in for Emelin. I say bring in Kaberle or Weber for the second powerplay unit. Beaulieu is too easily knocked off the puck he needs to mature a bit more. Weber has that great right handed shot we could use on the PP. Can\'t F#*k with history!!!
- Comment on Kovalev returns to Bell Centre Tuesday night (2013-01-20 18:50:49)
Can't help but respect him. He was the best offensive player for the Habs while he was in Montreal. Hopefully he gets a warm reception. Can\'t F#*k with history!!!

Thankgod for RDS HD. I can't wait to watch the game without listening to the English CBC cast. Let's stay healthy*knocks on wood*, get PK back and get back in the top 8 this year. Can\'t F#*k with history!!!

Stubbsy, you are truly a f#@ing legend for doing all of this. Truly! Can\'t F#*k with history!!!

Gomez on the fourth line would add speed and skill, teamed up with White and Prust. This statement with an asterisk beside it, like the whole #*#@ing season. Can\'t F#*k with history!!!

Booner! Gazette's loss but not HIOs. What a remarkable career! Congrats and enjoy what retirement holds for you. Can't keep a good one down and looking forward to game blogs for yet another season! Can\'t F#*k with history!!!
- Comment on Kings open Western final with win vs Coyotes (2012-05-14 14:24:32)
I say we try to sign Gaustad on a one year deal. Solid 4th line Centre, have Moen (another one or two year deal) and perhaps Staubitz play with him. Solid 4th line, energy line. Can\'t F#*k with history!!!
- Comment on Habs’ new GM in 2 or 3 weeks; Rangers, Devils advance (2012-04-27 13:36:38)
Okay, here's my two sense on the Pierre Maguire as GM discussion: There is no doubt in my mind Pierre Maguire is a hockey brain. He knows the game, knows the league, knows how to scout talent. There is no questions there. However, one of the biggest jobs of the GM that you don't see, is the ability to motivate and work with the coaching staff and players in order to get the best out of the team. As much as Mr. Maguire knows, having been out of the NHL in the capacity of running a team (or similar capacity), he is not in game shape to run a hockey team. One thing Mr. Gauthier didn't have a grasp on as well, and we all know how this season turned out. Also, Pierre Maguire is a hothead and comes across as arrogant, so the potential for conflict with coaches and players is there and this is not somethign the team needs. We need someone capable of getting the most out of the players, a motivator and HR specialist, with the player and prospect knowledge to boot. If Maguire is willing to take on an Assistant-GM position, I say we hire him in a second. Whether his ego can settle for Assistant-GM is another issue altogether. If that's a position he doesn't want with the greatest hockey franchise in history, let him walk away. Can\'t F#*k with history!!!
- Comment on Savard speaks about GM search (2012-03-30 03:24:29)
Anyone else cheered up by the fact that the Leafs are abysmal? When's the last time we lost 7-1 (Knock on wood)? Perhaps they are throwing the season for a high draft pick. Either way, this is a franchise without any pride. I can hold my chest up high knowing, although with limited talent on the ice, our Habs have played hard night in and night out. If not for themselves then for all of us, knowing they have a loyal (and critical) fan base, still paying attention this late in the season and with nothing but a high draft pick on the line. It's bittersweet to see Toronto sinking to a new low this late in the season. Our prospect coming up are better, our history is undoubtedly better and there is much to look forward to vis a vis that loser organization in Toronto. Not only that, but we've as of yesterday, rid ourselves of our biggest problem. The future is bright. Can't F#*k with history!!!
- Comment on Sunday morning coming down for Habs fans (2012-03-26 10:38:30)
I take issue with all those slagging Bob Gainey (I have no problem with anyone ripping the Goat). We can hindsight the Gainey trade all we want, however, 2 years ago a trip to the Conference finals and last year coming an overtime goal away from taking out a solid Bruins team isn't anything to be ashamed about. Gainey was the brainchild of this team. This year, the Goat blew that all up. The Markov injury fiasco didn't help. Gainey lives and breaths bleu, blanc et rouge and made the team a contender, although it was short lived. His management definitely occured at a challenging time considering the loss of his daughter in the tragic boat accident. Now that the team has been blown up, we are left with some key pieces as part of this rebuild. Some major components of success are there, with a new focus on toughness, that will serve the team going forward. This coupled with a closer parity between teams (look at them Florida Panthers), means the Habs don't necessarily have to be on a 3 year plan to rebuild. With some smart strategizing (hope that's a word) and some passion in the front office this team will be a contender sooner rather than later. Can\'t F#*k with history!!!
