Hi Folks, I'm a die hard Hab fan here in Windsor, Ontario. Whenever they show up in Detroit, I try to catch the game live win or lose it's an incredible atmosphere that people in general should experience. I don't pretend to know or understand the French/English politics (antics) that goes on in Montreal but, I truly find it frustrating at times when it effects the Habs culture (gotta be French, gotta be English!). I go back to my days in grade school when my teacher at the time had us study this beautiful flag that represents Canada with it's bold red maple leaf standing tall and proud a symbol of hard work and unity achieved by many cultures for a better life. Funny thing, if you look closely you can actually see two (2) individuals facing each other and yelling or conversing with each other (Conversation unknown). I'm guessing one is French the other is English and they're bitching about too much of one's culture dictating the others life. Yet, if you stand back the bickering is lost and the flag itself is Art! I see that same scenario with Hab's hockey, I feel that Canadiens hockey truly represents the politics or antics of Canadian society and marvel how it continues to succeed with so much turmoil or blowhards who apparently know best. When the Hab's are on there game it's a thing of beauty especially for one who can't skate. It's art in motion and it doesn't matter if you're English, French or whatever mother tongue you are, just be proud that we can enjoy the freedom, success and ability to see our Hab's play. As I watch our juniors skate in motion donning that beautiful flag on there chests skating for a common goal, winning gold! The Fucale's, Mc David's and the Duclair's skating art in motion. The" CH", it's roster filled with players from different cultures around the world with one goal presently sits near the top of the standings looks pretty good right about now. Of course canvas half finished waiting for that Stanley another symbol standing tall donned by the bold CH. Happy New Year all!

Man, check out the stanchions behind Mr. Beliveau, can you imagine the damage done if a collision similar to Pacioretty & Chara occurred back then. RIP Mr. Beliveau ....

Steve, you nailed that dead nuts! Well done, now's the time to experiment not at the trading deadline or in the post season. Get the stud kid up from the minors, take the shackles off Subban and let them loose.
