- Comment on Liveblog: Desharnais scores in OT to beat Wings 2-1 (2014-10-21 22:34:53)
I am so glad the boys came back tonight, because I hate any team winning like the old NJ Devils. I thought Lemaire was behind the Wings bench. And Galchenyuk is becoming a beast! Quincy really thought he owned the kid!

Some people here are talking about the lack of crowd noise. Now I know some people don't have a choice of feeds, but the RDS feed has lots of noise, almost drowning out Pierre Houde at times. The Sportsnet feed is typical Sportsnet. They seem to lower the crowd noise so you can hear the play-by-play better. I'd rather hear the crowd, (and RDS doesn't have a ticker hiding part of the screen(.

He was gassed from one of his patented trips around 18 guys in the TB end, and then didn't get off the ice when he had the chance.

After last night it's hard to pick on one guy, but Tom Gilbert has been horrible from the start. And I don't think Beaulieu has been that bad at all. His partner, who I suppose is supposed to be a mentor and show him the ropes, is hanging him out to dry every chance he gets. Nate will learn nothing playing with Gilbert and it will probably hurt his confidence. At this rate Gilbert will mentor Beaulieu right back to Hamilton!

At least there's still no rule against wearing sunglasses and a cape!
- Comment on Martin Brodeur would take backup job with Habs if offered (2014-09-05 09:01:44)
It's hard to feel bad for a guy making $1.4 M a year to watch Habs games from the front row, but I DO feel bad for Budaj. He's been a great teammate and did his best when called upon. If the team feels he's not the guy to backup up Carey, then I'd rather see Tokarski in there than Brodeur.

Need some help here guys. We have some tickets here at our office for a raffle. We don't actually have them in our hands yet, but they are for Nov. 15 against Philly. They are in the Whites, that's all we know. What is the approximate face value of each ticket?
- Comment on (AUDIO) Subban signs eight-year deal with Habs averaging $9 million a season (2014-08-02 21:22:46)
A lot of talk about how PK is now the highest paid D-man, and now he has to be a Norris finalist every year. Now he may end up being the best d-man in the league, but all this contract means is that he is the best Dman whose contract had expired this year. The only way that the best guy gets the most money every year, is if everyone signs 1-year deals. both sides sign long-term contracts to protect themselves. By the time PK's 8th year rolls around he might be the best player in the NHL, but is only the 20th highest paid player.
