He's a gadfly for sure Matty. :-)

That was awesome. Phanoof looked totally shocked that Desharnais would wrap him for being a dickhead. The Habs have been a small team, but none of the players lack toughness or courage. They are not scared of anyone -- which is why they beat Boston. The Habs do have great leadership throughout that team.

Not one of my favorite prime ministers, but he did two good things. First, his government in 2004 made it illegal for businesses and unions to donate to federal political parties, and, second, he told George W. Bush to go f*ck himself.

Your comment about Therrien's oral communication skills reminds me of an old joke about former prime minister Jean Chretien. It was said Chretien was the first Canadian prime minister who could speak neither of Canada's official languages.

If any of the Habs's defence prospects can't beat Bouillon for a spot, the team is in big trouble.

UCe!!! Why did you need to point that out?

Nice reply Dipsy. PK was splendid during that period. He never lost his focus, and comported himself with class and dignity over an issue that literally forces people to the lowest common denominator -- either by actually being a racist or by using the issue to score public relations points against one's opponents.

I really like Subban, but I do not think he is quite ready yet for the captaincy. It seems to me Subban inevitably will assume that kind of leadership role at some point, but the dilemma now for the Habs' administration is whom to select -- and whoever will be captain is likely to have a long career in Montreal and hence captain for a lengthy period of time. I doubt, despite the article's statement, that Moen will be captain. He likely will not even be re-signed when his current contract ends. I have a sneaking suspicion that Pacioretty will get the most consideration by management: he will be a Hab for a long time, he is articulate, and there is little doubt about his toughness as a player (although he still angers me when he plays the perimeter game). Although it is also possible I am totally and thoroughly mistaken!
