Hobie, not that you care but I generally enjoy your posts. It just seems you have a very binary view of this. Is there not room for all of these opinions to be "right" on some level? If you are simply enjoying a bit of fun because you feel extra "right" then keep it up, but from where I sit, there are multiple valid perspectives here, and the comment about waiting until he's doing this in the AHL before getting too excited seems equally "right" to me. Where's Captain Pike with one of his standard binary responses when you need him?

Easy one. Yes. Brought back awesome memories of those seventies teams and the amazing Samedi soirs i spent with my family. Made me miss my Dad a little more than usual as he was a softie for any of these sorts of things...wonder where I get that from! (Truth be told he was also good for a misty eye at some of the Latter Day Saints commercials from back in the day..., but I digress...) Thanks for asking Mike, i hope that you are well.

Oh RDS , how I miss thee... And when did Jim Hughson become Alex Trebek? Pronouncing names as he thinks they should be pronounced...and that is the least offensive part of this entire broadcast!

Hi CJ, Your post brought me to a place where I believe this may the exact opposite of how I felt when Doug Gilmour joined the Habs. I went from deep seeded hatred and loathing to appreciating having him on our team to really loving what he brought at a time when his passion was desperately needed. Now i suspect that I will grow to hate young Ryan, the first time he pisses me off with some dirty move on one of our boys.
