- Comment on Liveblog: Canadiens run winning streak to five (2014-11-15 21:06:13)
Gallagher call was a turning point obviously..Too bad Galley and whomever is doing the play-by-play got into storytime mode..they missed a good period of hockey. Next up: follow the NBA"s lead and do interviews over the play with celebrities!
- Comment on Habs looking for fourth straight win in Tampa; Plekanec NHL’s first star of week (2014-10-13 17:35:16)
Errrr..never charged..complete lack of supporting evidence. He was no choir boy but they also have this thing called a justice system. They don't convict people on TMZ's say so...yet.
- Comment on Eller agrees to four-year, $14-million deal with Habs (2014-07-24 18:39:18)
He has 2 years are 2.5 mill. to show the Habs they made the right decision. No NTC is huge..backloaded money in the last 2 years. I think it's too much money for a 3rd line center which is all he is at this point, IMO..up to him to prove that statement incorrect. I like Lars....I can live with the contract if he plays it all out.
- Comment on Gionta, Gorges headed to Sabres; Habs sign Malhotra, Weaver and others (2014-07-01 21:05:44)
For the first time in years, I am confident in the GM of the Habs. He and his team clearly know the league and where the bargains are. They aren't overspending...(can you believe some of the mediocre players who got huge money today? Me either...lol) and have left themselves flexibility to sign, perhaps another forward if needed after getting Eller/Subban out of the way. This team is going places with a good Captain sailing the ship...good times

- Comment on Defenceman Lernout, forward Audette among Habs’ six draft picks (2014-06-28 21:05:36)
Derek was a good player..excellent faceoff man for starters. Good checker..it he didn't have an addiction problem, he would have had a nicer career. He got the big money in the WHA and just lost everything. Met him once at a golf tourney...very nice man with a wry sense of humour. He knows where he went wrong..and is glad to be alive.
- Comment on Who will be the Habs’ first-round pick? (with Trevor Timmins audio) (2014-06-27 15:39:10)
I like him..but agree with krob's comments in general. Doug Gilmour just loves the kid. I was fortunate to have a conversation with Doug when I was contemplating buying season tickets and he was/is very high on the player..I think we have bigger needs but if he's the best player available, I don't think we'd be drafting anything other than a very solid NHL'er...lots of good buzz about him from scouts as well.
- Comment on Canadiens will retire Guy Lapointe’s No. 5 (2014-06-18 17:19:06)
Lapointe was so good for so long...just amazing at how consistently he played great..along with Savard of course and later on, Mr. Robinson. This team needs to find 2 more just like him to help Subban in the years to come...:)
- Comment on Markov looking for three-year, $18-million deal: report (2014-06-16 15:34:23)
No, I do not. He's a spent force..and this league is rapidly evolving to to a point where speed is king.
- Comment on Habs trade Leblanc to Ducks; Therrien gets four-year contract extension (2014-06-15 14:38:28)
I never understood the pick from the beginning. He was an average player in every respect..the kind of guy who has a nice career in the AHL..jack of all trades, master of none etc. One of the larger busts in recent Canadiens drafting history, IMO..I tried to see what others did and I just kept thinking and seeing "Jason Ward"..
