    ... good job at producing a Habs show, gentlemen. Only one complaint I might have, is that it's a tad too long. But overall, I look forward to the next episode of 24C ... oops, I mean next episode of HIO Show definition of insanity: keep doing same thing expecting a different result

    ... so let's see now. Boone poses a hard one: who would you want, Staal or Subban? a robot or a stand-up comedian? For my money, I'll take the robot. definition of insanity: keep doing same thing expecting a different result

    You use the term 'draft dodger' as if to suggest to avoid military service in time of an unjust war is somehow ... a bad thing. Am I misreading your motives? definition of insanity: keep doing same thing expecting a different result

    ... the whole point of settling scores by players themselves has come about because the league over time has lost its ability to exert policing authority. And no, hockey not always been like this. There was a time when the referees had the authority to punish - immediately - penalties such as elbowing, or any other infractions against the rules. There was a time when the rules were clear. There was a time when players understood authority and respected it without having to be coached into doing so. There was a time when players like Mike Bossey would not fight, but the league saw more dollar signs in another direction. There was a time when the league put game officials on the ice and then stood back and let them officiate. There was a time certainly when fights would occur, but only due directly to what had just happened; there was never a time when the presence of referees was such a meaningless thing that scores had to be settled in a later game, for God's sake. ... there was a time when hockey was never like this. definition of insanity: keep doing same thing expecting a different result

    ... during last night's preamble to the game, TSN analysts made the astounding yet bewildering assertion that sometime during the game, Rene Bourque would have to engage in a fight with a player from the Capitols. "Have to ...!" As much as to suggest that the inevitability of the fight was due to some rule of the game; as if to say, "No one wants to do this but it MUST happen because of some dictate somewhere." ... the fight did happen as we all witnessed and I am at a complete loss to understand how that fight did anything at all to affect the outcome of the game. ... now I know many of you see no problem with this type of thing in the game today; that is your right and your opinion, and you're welcome to it. And I know like many others, I come across as some leftist pinko sissy because I see this kind of thing as a distraction at best and a direct flaunting of the game's ethos at worst. ... but no matter your views, I suspect there are many who will agree with me. In all my years as a hockey player and fan, I have never encountered such a ridiculous notion as that which seeks to defend the practice of fighting by claiming it cannot be avoided. I have of course witnessed and sometimes been involved in skirmishes which resulted from previous player interactions. But never has anything as upfront as a fight ever occurred BECAUSE it was required by some code as though both combatants were duty-bound to engage and unable to resist. ... is there any better reason to leave the current game behind, if it has devolved into this kind of mindless nonsense? definition of insanity: keep doing same thing expecting a different result

    ... ok, c'est tout pour moi, je ne serai pas un fan des Canadiens de plus longtemps - je vais laisser cette équipe derrière, après soixante ans et plus. Si les pouvoirs en place ne peut pas reconnaître l'importance de «l'équipe» au-dessus des petitesses de la «langue» et faire ce qu'il faut s'élever au-dessus de ces questions non-hockey et de mettre une vraie équipe en place, pourquoi devrais-je perdre mon temps et le trésor leur donner quelque chose de moi-même? ... il fut un temps où la langue parlée par tous les joueurs des Canadiens de Montréal, les entraîneurs, ou d'autres employés était simplement accessoire. Les choses ont changé à 180 degrés, et maintenant c'est la qualité de l'effort qui est accessoire, et la langue elle-même est maintenant le numéro un facette de l'équipe. C'est une honte! ... je suis quelque peu bilingue moi, bien que je ne peux pas tenir une conversation avec quelqu'un dont la langue première est le français. Mais peu importe, si M. Gauthier appelle pour me demander de prendre sur l'affectation comme entraîneur-chef, je vais devoir refuser poliment. ... enfin, j'ai toujours aimé la mousse Molson, malgré le fait que les propriétaires eux-mêmes ont obtenu dans le lit avec le diable (Anton Coors). Mais à partir de maintenant, je crains que «canadienne» laissera un goût amer dans ma bouche. définition de la folie: continuer à faire la même chose en espérant un résultat différent

    I wouldn't wish living in Alberta on my worst enemy, but in the case of this trade, it is the better of two locales. After last night's front office shenanigans, and this morning's ludicrous claim that the trade "has been in the works for a while", all that need be said is Mike Cammalleri is the winner. He didn't do anything but tell the truth and got sent to Coventry for his troubles. Reports suggest that when Mike encountered the GM last night in the corridors of the Garden, Mr. Gauthier glared at him. I've got a news flash for Mr. Gauthier; if you feel the need to glare at someone, hie thee to the nearest mirror. definition of insanity: keep doing same thing expecting a different result

    There must be something wrong with your keyboard. In many cases, except for the entry re Carey Price, when you tried to type 'expendable', it came out 'keeper'. You should get that fixed. Hope you have a good computer tech in your region. definition of insanity: keep doing same thing expecting a different result
