My god, I can't stand that guy. Then he bring Berkshire on the radio and I wanna crash my car into a tree.

What really get's me is that web development technology has reached a place where creating a simple site like this one is almost plug and play. I wish they would put some dollars into re-vamping this site because the community here is wayyy better than EOTP where HIGH CORSI = GOOD PLAYER. We have some really passionate fans here who really do know their hockey and provide interesting discussions. I find it's doing a disservice to the community the Gazette has enabled to grow over the years to let the house get into such bad shape.

Just happened to me a minute ago. It's a bug. A very simple one to fix yet it's been like this for god knows how long.

The decline in the number of posts (and I can only assume page visits as well) is because this site user experience on this site is horrible. I've been a member here since the beginning but now the layout is so user unfriendly that I hardly bother coming here anymore. There are tons of bugs. At least 5 times I've come to the home page and the carousel of images to get to ABL or game blog just doesn't load, there are pictures at the bottom of this page that are of news stories from years ago. Komisarek is wearing a Leafs jersey for christ sakes. Don't even get me started on the mobile version/app. It's unfortunate because they had a good thing going here. I've had to move to a combination of Twitter/Reddit and unfortunately Habs EOTP.
- Comment on Habs make Jacob de la Rose their final cut before season opener (2014-10-07 17:46:19)
Nice sample size brah! 17 games. Remember when Ville Leino was the next big thing after a successful playoffs. Or Sean Bergenheim when he scored 9 goals in 16 games. Eller had 26 points in the regular season, then flipped a switch and had 13 in 17 playoff games. So you're conviced that that switch is on permanently? Me, not so much. Then you go on to slag DD as not able to control the puck in the offensive zone. Sorry but we must not be watching the same player. He had 4th most powerplay points last year at 15, only 2 behind Patch and scored 53 points overall, 3rd on the team...yeah what a plug.

Would you like some cheese with that whine?

LA Kings were led in fighting majors by Kyle Clifford, hardly a heavyweight. Add to that, the Canadiens were 5th in fighting majors last season while LA was 22nd. So according to your logic, they are not a "tough" team then, right.

What are you talking about? Did you watch the Habs last year? How did the Bruins impose their will if they lost the season series and then lost again in the playoffs? Chicago imposes their will with speed, skill and puck possession, not through fighting. LA does it with the same speed, a bit less skill and bit more checking.

Thank you! I've been coming here for what? 7 years? And every season we worry about "toughness" vs the bruins, leafs, flyers, etc. And every year the same arguments get re-hashed over and over again. Yet somehow, the habs make it out of the season well ahead of the leafs, we never struggle against the flyers and the bruins... how much did their "toughness" help them in the playoffs last year? Fighting in the NHL is on it's way out, these guys contribute nothing and they prevent nothing. Cheap shots happen whether there is a tough guy in the lineup or not. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good scrap as good as the next guy, but please don't have me believe having a heavyweight in the lineup will make the Canadiens a better team.
