- Comment on Canadiens home after winless road trip
I rarely post, but read every day. Today I feel the need to say something... Vinny Damphousse said it best last night in between periods 2 and 3, Gomez needs to be bought out or sent to Hamilton starting next year. I have always liked him, but he's finished and dragging the team down. Young guys look at his salary and production and don't feel the need to work hard. Last night, they brought in Geoffrion and Staubitz, but sent Leblanc to Hamilton because they said he would play solid minutes there. Why not let him play solid minutes here? Everyone bashes Kaberle because he's a pilon... He leads our D-men in points and was brought in to help a struggling PP. He's helped, but Gomez PP minutes hurt. The problem is not Cunneyworth or even Pierre Gauthier, it's player attitude. Cammalleri was right, they practice like losers, then play and expect to lose. I say play the kids big minutes and correct their mistakes until the end of the year, and sit the dead weight, Gomez, Campoli, Bourque. And let Budaj play a little, the playoffs are not happening. These guys make me want to change the channel. A 1st, 2nd, or 3rd overall pick is a really good thing.

- Comment on Game 29: Hurricanes drub feeble Canadiens
I was at the game last night with my wife and some friends for my 30th birthday. Total cost of tickets and parking was for 2 people was over $500. What a disgrace to watch a team perform in front of its home crowd so poorly it made me wish I hadn't been there. In all the times I've been to the Bell Centre and Forum I've never seen such a gutless performance by the Habs and I hope I never see it again. In my opinion there were only 2 players that showed up for the Habs last night and they were Lapierre and Komisarek. The rest didn't wake up from their afternoon pre-game pampered nap. What a disgrace and a total waste of my hard earned money. Booooooooo!!!

I think Ryder will have a breakout week. He had something like 13 shots Saturday night. Let him play and trade him at the deadline. He's gonna score 30 goals again this year. Mark my words.
