- Comment on Habs will play eight preseason games in 13 days; Kovalev criticizes Subban (2014-08-19 16:12:39)
I just checked my GAFF about Kovalev's opinion and as I suspected, pinned at ZERO! What a tool....

Hey folks....haven't been on here for quite a while so no idea where conversations have been going with respect to seeing Habs games on TV. I'm hearing basically that if you don't live in Quebec, the chance of watching a game is pretty much zero, unless they are playing in Ottawa, Toronto or Winnipeg. Is there truth behind this?
- Comment on Habs’ Subban expects arbitrator to decide on his contract (2014-08-01 11:55:21)
PK's game went to the crapper with the Olympic announcement and it didn't recover during the regular season and barely recovered during the playoffs. If he and his agent are flashing the Norris around as a "look what I have so pay me" then somebody is waaaaaaaaaaaay out in left field

These are my thoughts exactly and have been all along. PK is an exciting player to watch and has a ton of potential, great thus far but still has some growing to do. Is he worth what his agent thinks he is? No, IMHO but what happens if we don't give him what he wants? Trade him? Let him walk?
- Comment on Mike & Max’s excellent adventure: Weaver’s dream summer with Pacioretty (2014-07-11 09:44:27)
I bought my daughter the DVD for her birthday :) Another tragic tale. I kind of stopped listening to Queen after the News of the World album because they became a bit too commercial for me as I was a huge fan of their earlier stuff. It wasn't until my daughter 'forced' me to listen to the rest of the collection that I became a monster fan again. A tattoo is forthcoming :)

DAMMIT!! Thanks Cal.... As a teen in the '70s, I was the only one in my peer group who listened to Queen and I never seemed to be in the right place at the right time to see them in concert. My daughter, bless her heart, has picked up the love I had for Queen so her and I are heading to Mtl. I feared it was going to be an Adam Lambert show but from all reviews, it's a rocking affair with a ton of old Queen songs being played and he's an absolute smash hit! One of the radio stations in Ottawa (CHEZ) was saying something about Deacon stating that when Freddie died, Queen was over and shouldn't try to be revived. This is the closest I'll ever get and I envy those who saw Freddie & Queen in their prime.

Is the development camp still going on in Brossard Monday/Tuesday? Is it still open to the public? Times? My daughter and I are heading to Mtl on Monday for the AL + Queen concert and will drive back home Tuesday.

Any news on Vrbata possibly becoming a Hab?

Wonder if MB is done or if there are still some moves left with key players. One thing I would love to see is to pick up Saku for a one game deal, give him the 'C' and have him present the torch to the new captain (Markov?). Let Saku retire as a Hab!

I'm sure Maholtra speaking French was at the top of somebody's list of important things to have on your resume :P
