    I jus had to log in and comment after that one. All I will say is this: any Habs fan who *EVER* complains again about the refs being against them should immediately consult a doctor. In case you people here still denied that the Habs have always had a huge officiating advantage at the Bell Centre, this most recent example will surely cure your delusion. That is all.

    It's hockey my dear Habitants. It's unpredictable and emotional, and it's a lot of fun! Get your knickers untwisted and have a good laugh: http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-triangle/post/_/id/75402/that-escalated-quickly-your-guide-to-toronto-and-buffalos-crazy-nhl-preseason-brawl If you've been watching NHL hockey as long as I have, you've seen all of this before a hundred times... but it never gets old!

    I've not seen a more embarrassing playoff beat down in my life.

    Hockey is a man's game. Playoffs even more so. Sens are a young, hard working team. Not big, not tough, but industrious. Habs? For years they've relied on puck luck and cute play. I'd not want to be a Habs fan right now.

    Over the last 20 years the Leafs have actually won more playoff games than the Habs. Fact is, both teams have had some good years and some bad years the past couple decades, but neither have much to write home about. Neither Leaf fans, nor Habs fans should feel superior during the current "epoch". The rivalry has suffered because as it happens the teams have not been hot at the same time: in the 1990s and early 2000s when the Leafs were perennial contenders, the Habs sucked. Over the past 8/9 years when the Habs had some playoff runs, the Leafs sucked. But now it looks like the beginning of a new period where both teams could roll together for a few years and rekindle the playoff rivalry. We're both pretty fragile groups these days though, so I'll only believe it when I see it! It will be fun :) Check this funny bit from a Leaf fan's POV: http://www.downgoesbrown.com/2013/04/grantland-what-every-hockey-fan-needs.html?m=1

    Fighting has been a part of hockey from day one. As much as sticks, pucks, hits, and goals. You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but that's all it is. Players that choose not to fight don't. Those that do, risk going down from a hit on the chin. They are paid well for what they do. Every year computer using office workers suffer from lifestyle diseases, anxiety, obesity, stress, ulcers... This guy gets his bell wrung but is living the dream, heart on his sleeve, adrenal flowing, playing for glory, babes, and bucks every day. I don't feel sorry for him, I envy him. Modern day Spartans. Real men. Unlike some of the shrinking violets around here.

    Is my four year posting history still accessible? I remember one of my more cutting insults got one member so mad he posted my bio on the thread and then threatened to come to my home and beat me to a pulp. I think he got banned. I of course removed my bio. Now I am just Leafy.

    I don't recall being so gallantly insulted by the opposition on any other online hockey fan forums I've been to before. Impressive. Not that my opinion matters, but the truth is that this forum is the best hockey forum I've seen-- it's small but tight-knit and somehow relevant. All the others are either too niche or too mainstream. Being a Leafs fan in Montreal somehow makes me eligible to be a troll on this site. Hard to explain.

    What do they do to Leaf fans in this place?
