- Comment on Jacques Martin weighs in
Mc Guire = Matt Millen former manager of the Detroit Lions of early millenium that doomed the organization for a decade. It's really easy to get it right the day after a game or sitting on the sidelines. Just because you have the best seat in the rink during a game doesn't qualify you to be a good manager or coach. if you really want him in the organization then give him a scouting job and travel the back roads and find our next Guy LaFleur.

If and when you consider Mc Guire, think of Matt Millen of the Detroit Lions. all fluff and no idea on how to run or manage a club. the habs will be doomed for the next 10 years because of his actions.

locally, the word here is that Kenny H, will retire and Mr. Nill will be the man. that's why Stevie Y, split town no room for him.

Ugly game! Desharnais has been bitten with the gomer-initous syndrome skating up the ice making passes to his imaginary friends or half ass passes that do not get through. Darche, continues to suck wind and take space and of course Cammaleri is just missing in action. Felt sorry for Price again hung out to dry...

Ian, you are right about Scotty being great especially on scheming and motivating players but he is not the reason why the wings have fallen and he played a part with winning the Stanleys in Detroit. Jimmy Devellano was the architect who put this organization on the right track via, draft picks (Yzerman, Lidstrom, etc.,), trades (Vernon, Shanahan, etc) and coaches Murray and Demers. You could see the progression once Jimmy D, took over the organization back in the 80's and built it up from a pile of rubble to its pinnacle. That's when Mr. Bowman came in the fold at the winged wheel and made his magic that would eventual push them over the peak to win it all. He followed that same formula in Pittsburgh and somewhat in Montreal. In Buffalo he blew it, St. louis he didn't pursue the teams great potential and bailed. and of course he had nothing to do w/ Chicago's cup. this year will tell if he has the touch or not, because, he's been there for a couple of years now to implement his will. I respect Scotty a lot he taught Stevie Y, how to win but he also had a part in messing up talented players like Federov (Playing him on defense experiment) maybe send a memo to Mr. Martin. i definetly think Scotty's one of the best in the business but he also played his cards right wether it be luck or just pure hockey smarts when it came time to jump from one succesful program to another.
- Comment on Multimedia: Gallagher, Bournival returned to junior
did anyone else notice that raw footage of the habs practice. there must of been at least 8 or 9 shots put on Price and they all went wide! No wonder they can't score during a regular game, how do you expect them to score when usually they have at least 2 opposing defencemen between the shooter and the opposing goalie. in practice its just the goalie and they still shoot wide! OOhh, this is so going to be a long season. (LOL) just having fun folks!
- Comment on Canadiens practice, blow town
Offense is still a concern especially 5 on 5. Is, Campoli a tradeoff for Hamrlik or even an upgrade? he looked good at times, smooth skater didn't panic since logging only 1 game in pre-season.
