Nah, it was before giving blood. And he grunted at me. It was him.

Good afternoon everyone. I attend the Habs blood donor clinic every year and on Wednesday I got to meet Mr. Murray. I was surprised at just how large he is. I knew he was a big boy, but he is much more physically imposing than I thought. Incredibly solid. Dude has no neck. I felt like I was standing next to a truck. I remember seeing Luke Schenn once, who's not a small defensemen. Murray is easily twice his size. I realize he's slow, but having him in the lineup is comforting. Right?

I apologize if someone has already posted this, but here's a link to an article by Francois Gagnon on the RDS web site calling out DD. It's the first time I really see DD being taken to task in the francaphone media. http://www.rds.ca/hockey/canadiens/victoire-apaisante-pas-pour-desharnais-1.671735

Good morning everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. At the risk of beating a dead horse, I’d like to chime in on the Carey Price situation. Firstly, I’d like to say that I was always a Price backer. I had no problem with the Habs taking a goalie 5th overall nor did I have a problem with them keeping Price instead of Halak. But lately, my confidence has been starting to falter. Those who continue to strongly back him seem to point to three main points (at least from what I have seen). 1. He has not had a strong team in front of him. No doubt that this is true, but my concern is with the soft goals he consistently gives up that seem to take the air out of the tires of the team. These goals seem to have less to do with a weak defense in front of him than a lack of concentration. 2. He is still young. Again, no one can question this. However, he has been a starter in the NHL for several years. I think experience is more important that age. He should be playing at a level that would equate to an older age in the regular progression of a goalie. Moreover, I am really worried that his best moments as a player date back to Junior and the AHL. 3. Lately, people seem to be pointing to his invitation to the Canadian orientation camp as a vindication of his talent. If the Canadian brain trust chose him, he must be great, right? This is a weak argument in my opinion. Firstly, look at the other goalies invited. Would you seriously trade any valuable assets for any of them? I surely would not. Secondly, would Price have even been invited to the US camp? I am not so sure. Sorry for such a long-winded first post, but I’ve been holding back for a while.
