Out walking the dog. First attempt to comment from Blackberry. Testing, baby!

Babysitting the 10-month old granddaughter tonight. She already has Habs sleepers. Hopefully by the time she understands the game there will be something to cheer for. In any case, Grandpa isn't watching until Martin is gone. Tomorrow night, it's Richard Gwyn's biography of Sir John A. McDonald - Part 2. Part 1 was excellent.

Christmas party tomorrow night - I'll miss the Habs' goal.

Just read a post downstream where someone mentioned that Houle and Mario Tremblay 'ruined the team'. They were incompetent, but they didn't ever give away a 1st rounder for an over-the-hill guy making superstar dollars. Gainey ruined this team for the bettter part of a decade.

I'm basically at the point where I don't care to watch us score two goals or less a game. Until we get an management and coach who wants to use our speed and talent, it's pretty brutal to watch.

I was 6 rows behind the Penguins bench and saw things up close. Bylsma must have had 50 different little exchanges with his players - a word or two sometimes. I did not notice Martin interacting with his players once.

Sure looked like he was playing it very tight and restrictive. But I forgot to mention my brother and I won some Ford fan thing - padded seats, hats, $100 at the Habs store each and $25 each in food. Plus we were on the big screen. Too much excitement for this old guy.

Back at the hotel after seeing the game at Centre Bell. Long day - left Thunder Bay at 8 am. Last call was horrible. Couldn't believe that they showed all controversial replays on the scoreboard. Camalleri is basically ineffective in all areas of the game right now. Nokia looked very good in his limited role - don't know that he saw the ice much in the 3rd. PK and Eller are squeezing their sticks - they know they are just one screwup away from riding the pine - their names aren't Scott Gomez. Martin seems to want to impose himself on every game instead of providing all the support he can for his players' strengths and then allowing them to play. Cole seems to be saying on every shift - "Martin, I'm going to play this way - just go ahead and try to change me," Many of the others don't seem to be as brave. Very exciting game - great venue, but count on at least a half hour to pee, unless you want to miss some of the game.

Not even close. Dryden by a mile.

Really interesting to read the interview with Enqvist - makes you want the guy to succeed. Arrived in Edmonton last evening - here for a family wedding. I thought that I'd seen mosquitos in Nortwestern Ontario! They are unreal here - the kid who sold me a coffee this morning (it's 5 am here) says he wears bug spray indoors. Some of them are so big they have an in-flight movie on board.
