- Comment on Tremblay and Roy haven't spoken since trade to Colorado
Perhaps I am looking at the Canadiens with blinkers on but I can't remember the Habs ever signing a cheap shot artist like Torres. He doesn't deserve to play in the NHL, let alone the most prestigious team in hockey.
- Comment on Canadiens sign two Swedish draft picks; Emelin has surgery
Many are commenting on signing UFAs over the summer. I think the real bargain will be with players bought out of their contracts as part of the amnesty agreement. Do you think Lecavalier might get bought out? At 7 million a year, it is a horrible contract. If he was bought out, I'd sign him to a 3-year, $12 million contract.
- Comment on Gionta, Pacioretty game-time decisions
I would play Pacioretty before Gionta. The last game demonstrated we need to play physical against Ottawa.
- Comment on Habs, Leafs get ready for regular-season finale
Why is everyone caring what someone who calls himself "Ace Magnum" thinks? He's most likely a Maple Leaf troll who has too much time on his hands. "We don't need more embarrassment"? I think the Habs did well this season and will make some waves in the playoffs, with a promising future.
- Comment on Habs head off on crucial final road trip before playoffs
"Those overpaid, under-performing, pukes demonstrate they can't win. Trade Price, Subban, Plecky, Gally, and two draft picks for Konopoka and a bag of pucks. As I have said before, the Habs are too small and soft to win on a consistent basis. If Molson listened to me more, we'd have 10 cups by now. P.S. Therrien ruins players."
- Comment on Budaj will start in goal against Penguins
Reading the posts, it is obvious many have jumped off the band wagon and are busy hurling Price, Therrien, and every "overpaid, under-motivated veteran" underneath it. Are we in panic mode? Is there anyone who is saying "Relax"? I am just happy to be in the playoffs and trying to see this as a growing experience for the team, not a reason to blow the team up.
- Comment on Price will be in goal against Maple Leafs
"In the intervening years, the Leafs have made the final four three times. The Canadiens just once. Just thought I should mention that." Is that how Maple Leaf fans live with the fact they haven't won a cup in 46 years? I hope "We're number 4!" doesn't replace the "Ole! Ole!" song anytime soon in Montreal. We are lucky to have a rich hockey history and I agree the fans should look to Beliveau and Richard as models for their actions. They are classy people.
