Thank you, good to hear from the horse's mouth. Just shows what can happen when you mix wild speculation with bored/anxious "reporters". The truth is always simpler and less vitriolic than we are usually led to believe.
- Comment on Subban wasn’t fazed by arbitration hearing with Habs (2014-08-06 01:33:20)
Damn reporters, stirring up shite for no good reason.
- Comment on National world junior development camp underway in Brossard (Video) (2014-08-05 11:32:15)
My take on that: The disparity in opinion on Michel Therrien, drawn along linguistic/cultural lines, has a lot to do with the team being forced to look among only French-speaking coaches as a possible hire. Quebecois may feel better about it, but I think many non-Francos resent that language has become part of the hiring process. That kind of thinking would pre-empt the signing of a Mike Babcock or Darryl Sutter one day. Still, I can't argue with the Coach's results.
- Comment on (AUDIO) Subban signs eight-year deal with Habs averaging $9 million a season (2014-08-02 22:10:18)
Sorry if I'm stating the obvious: Love it or hate it, the contract at least settles things down for a long time, and we can concentrate on what happens on the ice. PK is part of the team's long-term plans, and I would trust that Marc Bergevin had next year's payroll on his mind when agreeing to this contract. In other news, man marries woman in wedding ceremony.

Can the two sides still come to terms before the arbitrator rules on Sunday?
- Comment on Best wishes from HIO to young Habs fan battling meningitis (2014-07-29 13:37:22)
Lovely; all the best to the little guy and his family.
- Comment on Leaving Habs was ‘family decision’ for Brisebois (2014-07-23 21:57:56)
- Tell me, do you spend time with your family? - Sure I do. - Good. Because a man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man.
- Comment on Who will be the Habs’ first-round pick? (with Trevor Timmins audio) (2014-06-27 15:47:32)
Gino Odjick apparently diagnosed with something terminal. Saw this on the TV here at Pearson airport.
- Comment on ‘I feel like it’s my home,’ Habs’ Markov says about Montreal (2014-06-26 14:40:03)
That was best-case scenario. Personally, I'd give PK 7.5 :)
