- Comment on Who will be the Habs’ first-round pick? (with Trevor Timmins audio) (2014-06-27 11:06:34)
I wish Hab fans would STOP wishing for Kane to come from Winnipeg. The Canadiens DO NOT want this guy. Lacks character, puts himself ahead of the team, and is a whinny kid who gets under the skin of teammates (ask Jim Slater!) and angers the fans. Not a guy to go forward with. Hope he goes to Ottawa or New York where he will disappoint our rivals instead. signed Jets/Habs fan from Winnipeg

Saddened to hear of Gino's terminal condition. One of my fav hockey memories in of Gino's HAT TRICK with the Canucks at the old PNE arena in Vancouver. Had a devastating fight victory in that game, scored on a penalty shot! and was the game's first star. The fans were in a frenzy chanting Gino's name... that's how I want to remember the big guy. He's only 43... sad
- Comment on NHL, Habs release complete 2014-15 schedule (2014-06-23 11:52:14)
Henderson definitely deserves to be IN the HHOF. Remember, its the Hockey Hall of FAME, not the Hockey Hall of Statistics. Henderson decent NHL career notwithstanding, he scored the most famous goal in Cdn hockey history! He scored the winners in game 6,7 & 8 to win the Summit Series. He's getting on in age (and recent illness) means we are running out of time. Do it now before he's gone. Come on HHOF.
- Comment on Markov looking for three-year, $18-million deal: report (2014-06-16 11:57:25)
Hope we get a hometown discount here for Markov. Can we afford to sign PK at 8-9mil AND Markov at 6mil? Don't think so... Hard guy to replace, but at that asking price we got to let him go. Remember all the young talent on the blueline that is ready to play. Its that Phaneuf for 7mil contract that is messing things up. Again, the Laffs incompetence shines thru again and again and again. Hope MB can get us a better deal...
- Comment on ‘You’ll see tonight,’ Therrien says of possible lineup changes for Habs (with audio and video) (2014-05-22 13:49:12)
I'm a bit confused here. Is BUDAJ hurt? Is he injured in some way? He is dressed as the back-up, so he must be able to play. Why are we starting a 'little better than average' AHL goalie when we have one of the best backups in the league. I am dumbfounded. I don't have much confidence in the young Tokarski at this point; and he is playing against one of the top three goalies in the world. Wouldn't Budaj be our best chance to win???
- Comment on Bell Centre sells out for fans to watch Game 7 from Boston (2014-05-14 11:11:02)
Is anybody else a little miffed about Don Cherry's "don't poke the bear" comment? Why is it that Boston can hack, slash, splash, punch and wack the Habs, but we better be careful not to bother the Broons. Shows a lack of respect for the Canadiens! I say, don't just poke the bear > let's finish it off and mount it on our wall. Go Habs Go!
- Comment on Habs acquire defenceman Weaver from Panthers; Price back on ice (2014-03-05 11:07:46)
No, NOT Byfuglien! Will not help us. He hurts as much as he helps. We can do better...

Why is there no interest in Alex Burrows coming to the Habs? Seems like an opportunity to pick him up for a bit of a bargain (just a pick or two should do it). I know he has had a tough season, but it might be worth a pick to see if coming to Mtl could revive his career. Or would he just be another Franco player on the back end of his career who underachieves with the Habs (ie. Briere, Tanguay, ...) Worth it??
- Comment on About this afternoon … (2014-02-03 10:43:08)
The Habs played pretty well. Better than the Jets, after the first 5 min., but could not get any puck luck. The boys outchanced the Jets significantly and Montoya certainly outplayed Price. Can't recall a game this season that I would solely blame Price for the loss. Bottom line: you are NOT going to win many games in the NHL by scoring only ONE goal. Scoring please.
- Comment on Habs’ Therrien faces heat while Guy Boucher takes coaching job in Switzerland (2014-01-27 13:58:36)
No,no NOT the Gooch. Wildly inconsistent. Disappears for long stretches. Way over-rated. Been watching him here in Winnipeg all season. No wonder Minny got rid of him. Stay away.
