- Comment on Gorges stunned by Habs’ desire to trade him, now waiting for next move (2014-06-30 22:56:04)
What we don't know. Was it the Laffs, the Habs a Habs player or Gorges himself who leaked the story. We don't know what MB was offered, we don't know what PK is demanding we don't know what shape the cap is in. Seems terribly bizarre to me that a player is respected for demanding maximum dollars from a team but when the team has to move assets they get crapped on. Respect MB for doing what he has to do to put the best team on the ice next year. This is not a reflection on Gorges past play but a reflection of what the team needs to do to progress. Have personally moved worked from Montreal to Calgary to Madison to Florida and points in-between. Life sucks sometimes but you don't what you have to do to earn a living. Respect Gorges but I think the emotional hype is over the top.
- Comment on “This is the tightest group we’ve ever had,” Price says of Habs (Video) (2014-06-01 21:40:15)
Very similar to how I see the 2014/15 Habs if we are looking to make a bold move for the upcoming season. Alternatively, Bergevin takes the more conservative approach choosing not to move such significant pieces as Gionta and Pleks. Biggest challenge will be to maintain the chemistry that 2013/14 Habs had. When Price says this was the tightest group we have had that explains how they took down the Bruins when nobody thought they would. Glad I don't have Bergy's job this off-season.

So who are we ready to move / not resign in order to continue moving forward. Pleks ? Gionta? Moen? Markov possibly.... Murray and Parros I think are automatic, white is borderline, and then of course Price's good buddy Budaj appears to be on the outside looking in.

Warning light was on for an empty tank before the game started. Agree changes will be coming in the off-season but tonight I pay tribute to the Habs who exceeded their pre-season expectations by a wider margin than any other team. Tonight is time to pay tribute to all the boys who at different times (ie:Bourque) did deliver us to 2 wins shy of the Stanley cup finals. Well done boys.

Zebras got it right was not a pass was a swat. Hand Pass - A player shall be permitted to stop or “bat” a puck in the air with his open hand, or push it along the ice with his hand, and the play shall not be stopped unless, in the opinion of the Referee, he has directed the puck to a teammate.

And now he calls Gallagher that little boy.

I prefer colorful commentary and the facts. Half the time he doesn't call the players name and while he has the passion of a teenager he also has the vocabulary of a teenager.

Where is Danny Gallivan's heir apparent. Bless Bob Cole am certain he is a good man but his play-by-play is gawd awful.
