That whole "west of Manitoba" thing is pretty confusing though. All I really want is access to Habs games in English and HD. It's unclear to me if that's going to happen in the west, other than maybe on Saturdays.

That's a rather "biting" comment :)

I think the intention is to Generate interest, promote the junior game internationally (which enlarges the prospect pool for the pros). You certainly don't want to kill whatever little interest exists by never going there, and if you want it to grow in those areas you have to go there fairly regularly. I'm sure the ridiculous amount of money they make in Canada helps subsidize the European tournaments.

I think the word you're looking for is "embellishing".

Also had a great time watching Prust's hustle on forecheck and backcheck. The guy never lets up.

- Comment on Game on! Tentative deal reached to end lockout (2013-01-06 15:48:21)
I grew up watching HNIC every Saturday night during the 60's when most of my family were Leafs fans, sprinkled with the occasional Habs fan. You had to be one or the other in my family because they were the only Canadian-based teams. In 1967 I was 8 years old and one of my brothers was putting pressure on me to decide on one team or the other. I still remember lying in my bed, listening to the final game of the cup final on CBC radio (wow there's a throwback eh?). When the final buzzer sounded, and the Leafs had won, I was surprised at how upset I was. I realized then I was deep down already a Habs fan, and have been so ever since. Kind of a good move, when you consider the two teams' respective histories since that historic night.

I claim to be angry, fed up with how we fans have been treated by both sides, and don't care that the NHL is back ... And yet here I am, reading every single post ...

Quick's extension is 58mil over 10 years for an all-star, Conn Smythe and Stanley Cup winner. Carey did well on this contract ... One could even say over-Priced. :) Still, I'm glad he is signed and for a longer term. Christopher I don't get what you're saying about Carey's working out to less than Quick's. Could you explain it for my thick skull please? ... Oooohh never mind I missed your 7x7 comment. Gotcha, and good point.
