    He is a big boy alright. It would make it even sweeter, if he becomes a regular considering we got him from the Leafs! "I think I may have found a way for us to get Griffey and Bonds, and we really won't have to give up much" -Costanza

    This is true...Pateryn is definately behind on their depth list. But I have a hunch he will come guns a blazing in training camp. He was the Bulldogs best defenseman last year....he knows it, MB knows it. It is up to him now to prove he deserves a regular roster spot with the Habs.....I still think he might do it. Great problem to have, with so many of the young guys fighting for 1 or 2 spots in the lineup.

    Markov PK Beaulieu Gilbert Emelin Pateryn If Beau and Pateryn both make it this year, this would be quite the impressive group to have on defense. The top 4 can all move the puck well. All 6 of them have their own offensive touch also. Pateryn showed last year that he has a nice shot.....someone who can contribute offensively. Emelin too, when given the opportunity has shown some offensive flair. I'm not too familiar with the fenwick/corsi stats, but I have a feeling ours would look pretty decent with these 6 on the back end.

  • Comment on Habs will play eight preseason games in 13 days; Kovalev criticizes Subban (2014-08-19 16:51:30)
    Someone mentioned here the other day that the advanced stats website extraskater was no long operational. Thoughts were maybe the creator was hired by an NHL team or was told by NHL to shut down site for copyright reasons........well it looks like the Maple Leafs are the one who hired the guy. Darryl Metcalfe is his name/ Looks like the Leafs are taking this advanced stats stuff seriously.

  • Comment on NHL players jump on board with ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (2014-08-15 17:15:40)
    OBB, I live in Ottawa. It isn't just the fact that it takes 30 minutes + by bus to get there, but also that there isn't much too do around it. There are really only two methods of transportation...bus or drive. You don't have people walking to the games like you would in MTL. I am 29, I like to go out to the bars and have fun after the games I go to, you just don't have that in Kanata like you would if it was at Lebreton Flats for example. I really do believe it would make a positive difference for the Sens, if the location was better. I think they would have more walk ups who decide to buy tickets last minute....just because they are looking for something to do, and they are there.

    It's funny, because anytime I meet a huge Habs fan, I always ask if they are on H/IO...but they never are. Just goes to show how many Habs fans there really are out there. "I think I may have found a way for us to get Griffey and Bonds, and we really won't have to give up much" -Costanza

    This article makes me think of the piece in the Huffington post, where the lady states that Canada and Canadians are essentially racist, and that Montreal wouldn't be a good place for a black athlete like PK Subban to play. He would be better off playing in the US where they are more "accepting"/ What a joke of an article that was.

  • Comment on Habs prospect McCarron cut from Team USA junior camp (2014-08-05 14:24:31)
    From what I understand, all the National english televised games will be split up between Sportsnet, City, and CBC. They will be alotting different channels to the different games on tv that night. TVA sports will have the french broadcasts. All Regional games will be televised on RDS. However, you will need to be in the Montreal region(East of Belleville I believe), or else they will be blacked out. So you will need to make sure you have all sorts of different channels. It will add to all our bills for sure. "I think I may have found a way for us to get Griffey and Bonds, and we really won't have to give up much" -Costanza

    They are two different channels. Depending on your provider and package of course....you will probably have to subscribe to TVA sports. It might be included if you order a french package that would most likely include all of RDS, TVA...and TVA sports.

  • Comment on Habs’ Subban expects arbitrator to decide on his contract (2014-08-02 14:29:41)
    I'm thinking slightly under 8.5 for 8 years. I think PK had just as much pressure as MB had on this one. I genuinely think PK wanted to stay here....just the money had to right for him. None of this 7mi which was reported by Wilde. We shall see. Nonetheless it is a relief.
