    Anyone know if the ceremony for Mr. Beliveau will be shown before blacking out those of us not in the viewing region? If not, anyone have a good streaming suggestion so we can watch?
  • Comment on Canadiens legend Jean BĂ©liveau dies at age 83 (2014-12-03 10:48:29)
    Far too young to have seen Jean play, but I always enjoyed the stories my dad told me of his brilliance as he watched as a kid. His legacy really resonated with me when my dad and I finally made our first trip to Mtl in the lockout season to see the Habs and bruins for his 60th birthday (Emelins ACL injury game). We took a tour of the rink that morning and were able to go to the alumni lounge. In the lounge there was one couch, Mr. Beliveau's couch. Anyone was allowed to sit on this couch unless Mr. Beliveau came in the room. It really sunk in that he must be one amazing man, if he was afforded that level of respect from all of the other alumni, many of which are hall of famers as well. One of my favourite pictures of that trip is one of me on Mr. Beliveau's couch, and the feeling of being in a rarified air. He will be greatly missed by all in the organization and his many fans.
  • Comment on Canadiens head to Calgary after shutout loss in Edmonton (2014-10-28 12:50:09)
    Was at the game last night. Dreaded going to work today and take my lumps. Quite surprised to hear many of the objective Oiler fans here found the hockey quite boring as well. Surprised to hear them admit that the Habs are so much better that the Oil had to play in that defensive shell all night and wait for their chances. The less objective fans just hoot and holler and let you know how great the game was. I damned near fell asleep in the 2nd and 3rd periods. Was really hoping for a high quality skating game. Alas ... it was not meant to be and another year goes by having to watch the Oilers beat my Habs and endure yet another walk of shame out of Rexall. All that being said it's great to see half a rink in Habs gear. Here's hoping the Habs fans in Calgary can get a better game and a win!
  • Comment on Habs will buy out Kaberle (2013-06-24 23:27:21)
    That collapse was one of the sweetest things that I have seen. I didn't think that there was a non-Habs thing that would bring me up out of my chair in such excitement!!

    When Gallagher scored that goal vs the Jets my first thought was all the bad mojo was finally gone. Finally got a bounce and there was some actual confidence after that. It definitely carried over tonight. Here's hoping the boys have turned the corner and we get a good run in the playoffs!!

    Took your advice and just did stubhub, I'm too impatient and didn't want to get skunked out on the day they go on sale. Sec 114 for not too much over the face value. If you only go once every 60 years you might as well get good seats!

    Now why would I shame myself by wearing Bruins gear??

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm sure we are going to have a blast. I just wish we had a week and not a weekend to take it all in.

    Looking for a little help from the people on the forum. I've been reading since the sites inception, but never really needed to comment. Both my Dad and I are life long Alberta Habs fans. He turns 60 this year and we're celebrating by finally going to see the Habs play in Montreal. The april 6th game vs the bruins. Flights are booked, just hoping I can get tickets when they become available this Sunday. Just looking for some advice about some hotels, restaurants, bars. Anything we must do/see? Can't wait to finally see a Habs home game, and if they can stick it to the bruins then even better!
