- Comment on Therrien: “We’ve got to make sure we go back to basics.” (2013-05-06 16:34:30)
There was an interesting article on last nights game in the G & M. It said that the Sens do a lot more hitting when playing at home. The obvious implication is that they can count on the refs helping them out at home.

It is hard to believe that Kaberle wouldn't be of some use. MB is so set on buying him out that he can't see that perhaps there are other candidates for a buyout. Some that have nore than one year left on their contract. And on draft day, no more smurfs.

Have to agree with you CF on all points. There has to be some onus on the checking player to not maim or cripple his opponent.

Any good quotes from Claude Blusterpuss ?
- Comment on Gomez sent home, he’ll be bought out (2013-01-13 13:01:59)
Sean Gordon of theglobeandmail.com explained it rather well. Gomez will be assigned to Hamilton (saving the Habs $900,0000 cap space and a roster spot). Gomez will not be reporting to Hamilton though.

Could someone explain how the roster numbers work. A couple (?) of years ago when the Habs told Laraque to stay home they had to finish the season short one roster spot. Any implications here?

Monkey see, monkey do. In case no one has mentioned this one, the Regina Pats defeated the Saskatoon Blades last night 1-0. The only goal was a shortie scored as Jordan Weal sped around defenceman Darren Dietz. Is Dietz trying to be Kaberle Light?

Well, the broons had their big day at the White House minus Tim Thomas of course. Maybe everyone is just being too critical of him. Perhaps he just has the hots for Sarah Palin. Although I can't see her being interested in a guy whose nickname is Mr. Floppy.

"Boston" Shanahan will probably suspend Tootoo because Toots is not a Bruin.

The NHL will be making an announcement shortly. They have come up with a way to add interest to the All-star break. During the All-star break they will officially announce the name of the team that they will support for the Stanley Cup unlike this year where their support was not publicly acknowledged.
