I think you can sum up the people who contribute to HIO with a famous quote by Willaim A. Ward; "The pessimist complains about the wind; The optimist expects it to change; The realist adjusts the sails."

"First step back towards the JM/Gauthier era. Good times ahead." Another quote from Timo, and I really do believe he is sincere in these feelings. He seems to be happiest, when the Habs are losing.

Yes, because I'm sure the main thing they're worried about is getting heat from a chronic, defeatist, internet arm chair quarterback from Albortia.

I think MB is looking at the big picture. Think about it, what happens if Kaberle does his knee in, or gets his bell rung and has concussion issues? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think a team can "Gomez" a player's contract while he's on the injury reserve list. That's 4.25 million, we can use towards the cap next year.

Pommenville was drafted in the second round, 55th overall, Clowe was drafted in the 6th round, 175th overall, so yes, it is very conceivable to get a player of more value, with a late first round pick, especially with Trevor Timmins at the wheel. Some examples of Timmins skills, Gallagher 147th, Pacioretty 22nd, Subban 43rd. I wouldn't worry about wheeling and dealing, if I was Ray Shero either, let's face it, he inherited a team that drafted first overall in 2003, 2005 and second overall 2004, 2006. Having said that, there has to be a thought in the Penguin collective that these players are not getting any younger, and it's a 'now or never' mentality, especially seeing how Gino and Syd have both been through long term injuries lately, Jordan Staal is gone, and Fleury has been hot and cold for a few years now. I think MB is on the right track. Stay the course, and let the chips fall where they may. This team has been consistently in the game all year, and can beat any team on any night. Anything can happen in the play-offs. I think the message he's sending the team is right message to this team. I trust you guys, go get it done.

Come on Booner, quit playing around on Facebook and give us some Tinordi information.
- Comment on Habs in first place at midway point (2013-03-09 14:18:13)
I think a player like Mike Fisher is a better player to compare Plekanec to. Both are two way centers, defensive specialists, who can also get some points when needed. Alfredsson is a first line winger and a Calder trophy winner, and that's not even mentioning the different responsibilities between the two positions. I think sometimes people miss what the coach's idea of what Plekanec's duties and assignments are. He usually see's a lot of time playing against other teams number one centers and killing penalties. Maybe because of our lack of talent up the center, in years past, he was regarded as the number one, or even number two centre. I think we would all agree that it is quite obvious that Pleky is not a number one centre, but with the emergence of DD, Eller and Galchenyuk, I think we will now see him excel at what is his real forte, in my opinion, which is shutting down number one lines while still being legitimate scoring threat. Fisher suffered the same fate in Ottawa, but there is not a coach in the league who doesn't appreciate the hard, honest work players of their calibre bring to the table on a third line. For now, MT has decided to play Galchenyuk on the wing, for the simple reason it's an easier position to play, but after he gets a more games and experience, he will be that big number one centre we've been praying for. Go Habs Go!

I'm sure he'll give his two cents on how to properly snot kick a 12 year old.
