You just made my Christmas!
- Comment on Pacioretty speaks to TSN's McKenzie
I'm glad that someone from the Habs organization finally said that they were disgusted by the fact the NHL didn't take any action against Chara; essentially saying what he did was within the rules and literally risking the neck of the next player in a similar situation.
I'm deeply saddened by the fact that it had to be the kid in his hospital bed who said it. I now believe that not only did the NHL fail him but so did the Canadiens as an organization. Is it too much to take the $10,000 fine from the league to speak out against the decision?
Would it have made a difference? Not to anyone other than Max.
There's so much more that could be said but it all comes down to this. Pierre Gauthier, Pierre Boivin, Geoff Molson; you should all be ashamed of yourselves.
Who knows if anyone out there will even read this. Maybe someone (hopefully someone) already posted similar sentiments. I just feel that we have to find a way of letting both the NHL and the Habs know that they've failed every player in this league.
- Comment on Habs win in shootout
First of all, welcome back Oleg. One of my favorite under appreciated mini wingers from the Habs past. I totally agree that the puck has been bouncing a lot on us, but it doesn't seem to effect our opponents as much. Perhaps expectations are making the guys grip the stick a little too tight?
- Comment on Update (audio): Captain misses practice
Love how classy Laraque is. This is no goon who spouts off for no reason like Thornton. His answers are well thought out and respectful. People love him already in Montreal for his fighting skill but wait until he scores his first goal for the Habs. His post goal celebrations in Edmonton were those of a man who loves to play and loves to score and it'll rub off on the rest of the team and the city.
