The best though was Don Cherry defending us on Coach's Corner. I never thought I'd live to see the day!

Wow... Subban looks like he's having so much fun on the ice. What a goal. I can't wait until he's in the bigs, his enthusiam alone will make him our secret weapon in the dressing room!

You should be able to see the game on cbc.ca/sports assuming it hasn't been blacked out in the states...

Excellent article and idea. Unfortunately, with the state of the current NHL 'braintrust' it'll be 2050 by the time they get their act together and realize that we fans don't all live within the broadcast zones of their patchwork network or are willing to pay porno-priced per game prices to watch jerky, low-res streaming. I mean, even CBC-sports (for whom I rarely have a good word these days) got it right, streaming all of their telecasts for free. It's time for an English-language Habs.tv... Anyone have George Gillette's telephone number?

Yeah, looks like a possible reason Webber is going on the retreat...

My two (self-interested) cents on the Pac vs. Lats debate: 1) Pac has had an incredible pre-season, and he would have a place on many other teams straight out of camp. This is a team that stacked up pretty well against Detroit the last two games. If I'm not mistaken, their rookie, who also scored 2 goals last night is fighting for a roster spot and might end up in the minors. we are not the team that Lats made a few years ago. 2) Lats is a very different type of player than Pac. Both are big men with good hands who can score goals. If anything, I hope that Lats took a good look at a few of those big, hard to move Detroit forwards who plant themselves in front of the net and collect the garbage. That's how he's going to score lots of goals. He's not the fast, mobile skater that Pac is and never will be. 3) I think Pac will start in the Hammer for the simple reason that its between him, Lats, AK46 and Higgins for a spot on the top 3 lines. Unless the Habs brain-trust has decided to roll with 4 offensive lines, there isn't space for 4 offensive left wingers. But, injuries do happen (as do slumps) and the moment a spot opens up, Pac will be called up to the show. In the meantime, any Habs fans in the GTA into organizing a Habs Summit in Hamilton? I can't wait to cheer for Pac in a 'Dogs jersey. Do you think he's gonna keep 67? Gotta love him for choosing that number!
