Awww... I just read that Martin Brodeur's father, Denis Brodeur, passed away today... My condolences to the Brodeur family, and any person who was influenced by Denis in any capacity. http://www.thescore.com/nhl/articles/1647588-famed-sports-photographer-denis-brodeur-father-of-star-hockey-goalie-dies

Just watched the link with the top 10 players you love to hate/disliked players, and well... How is Torres still allowed to play in this league? Seriously, getting suspended for the same shiite over and over again, I mean, it's not like I haven't known, but to see them all laid out one after the next... I know this has been said before as well, but, for a league that spews over and over again about the importance of player safety... phooey... I'm pretty sure banishment sounds about right for Torres... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JiVA7NqrsA (not my video, just a random youtube find.)

"Dominic Moore lost his wife, Katie, to liver cancer on Monday. She was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in April. Moore left the Sam [sic] Jose Sharks in the first round of the playoffs to be with her and missed the team's final two contests against St. Louis. He is currently an unrestricted free agent. We'd like to extend our deepest condolences to Dominic as well as Katie's friends and family for their loss. Source: Tampa Tribune" RIP Katie... Moore only played here for one year, but that still makes him a former Hab... Never read a bad thing about the guy (not that I can remember) Regardless... Sad news to happen to anyone...

Aids? Herpes? Syphilis? Gonorrhea? Hepatitis A B or C? All lovely gifts for that special douchebag on your list, either alone or in combination with any of the above...

How... Appropriate? Drafted 5th overall, in 2005, sits as the 5th overall goalie after his 5th NHL season... Dun dun dunnnnnn...

I don't know about the 'Yotes, but.... and much more lucrative... The LA Kings and Staples center are both up for sale as of yesterday... Anyone have a couple dollars to lend me? :P

Geo, you describe where I am at, really, and I do think that the pace of the NBA game, is what attracts me to it. Although, I really also have to agree with HabinBurlington, that a lot of players do seem to have a more of a primadonna kind of attitude, and that does affect the integrity of the league. Then again, there are athletes of that nature in all sports... I'll always think back to the Lindros fiasco in QC as an NHL example of a player's attitude having a great affect on a team. It's funny though, I've already crossed Miami off of my list of prospective teams, same as LA. You yourself pointed out how maligned El Heat is in the NBA, so I don't need to. :P I like a team that builds itself with good drafting and shrewd trades. I rarely believe that throwing money at star players, and forming an "all-star" team is the way to get a championship. I always laugh at those teams when they crumble before they get to their prize. Anyways... It will be a long season... Good luck to you all for getting through it... p.s. I wish Montreal had an AHL team right about now... I lived in Vancouver for a few years, and it was nice to be able to catch either The Giants of the WHA, or the Abbottsford Heat of the AHL... Great hockey at a fraction of the cost... p.p.s Does anyone think the NHL and NHLPA are really on strike to demonstrate their displeasure of the Gazette for "retiring" Boone?? :P

Hey folks! So, instead of trying to be angry, depressed, sad, or any other emotion describing the woe of a lockout, I'm trying desperately to find something to fill the void the NHL and NHLPA have left in my heart and TV schedule. I caught last nights episode of This Hour has 22 Minutes, and well, guess who they have guest hosting?? PK SUBBAN!! If ya'll want to watch the episode, it's the first of this, their 20th season! http://www.cbc.ca/22minutes/episodes/ I always enjoy PK's demeanor while answering hockey related questions and interviews, so, I was curious to see how animated he would be, scripted, and in a non-hockey environment. He did alright, but, even if he hadn't, I was watching the episode under the impression that this might be all of PK i'll get to see this year... Anyways... Everyone have a great day/week/month/year/lockout... p.s. Anyone else going to start watching NBA? I don't really know the ins and outs of the league, or all the technical plays of the sport, or all the teams; I've really always just been a hockey guy. I do know that they aren't locked out though... Anyone have a team to suggest? So far I am looking at Philly... :P

I always thought you were one of the better "posters" on here... I realize you didn't write this, but, wow is it ever lame duck sauce. More grieving, lamenting, and negativity from yet another individual who can't be happy when we win a game? If people aren't happy with the Canadiens, well, no one is forcing them to watch the games, go do something else if you can't be happy with a win. Remember, a goal is a goal; highlight goals dont happen all the time. A win is a win, some games are more boring or lopsided, but whether it's a 2-1 win or a 5-1 win, a win is a win. With all the praise heaped on AK, you'd think this was either written by him, or some hysterical, I-need-to-be-locked-up-before-I-do-something-stupid homicidal lunatic who still lives in their parent's basement... Furthermore, the lack of proper grammar and spelling was very evident...
