I'm pretty sure I saw him on the Live feed entering the church.... I saw him a year and a half ago out here in Vancouver and he seemed in good spirits, however was looking his age. :(

Having met Mr. Cournoyer just a few weeks ago and seeing what a wonderful, caring, happy and positve person he is, I hope he never loses his sense of humor and positive outlook on life even through these sad times.

Sorry dude. But hopefully things will change... one would think that a game with such signifigance will have the broadcasters rethink their restrictions. Other than that there is always the live streaming of the games...

Hey Luke, Actually if you live out west, Sportsnet Pacific is supposed to show the Habs game on next Tuesday (althought its not listed as that on the Habs schedule...). Its on SNP because they are showing the CANUCKS play the Habs (or so its listed on the Canucks shedule). I'm crossing my fingers that this is correct as I too would love to watch that game from out here in Vancouver.

Should be an interesting game against Boston if the Gonch is on the back end... I'll go by the whole wait and see before overreacting to the trade or not.... for now at least... lol On another note, I know I have posted this once before this year, however would love to have the support form you guys at HIO towards a very important cause (also hockey related), my wife and I are participating in and helping organize the Hockey for Alzheimer's Charity Tournament this weekend in Vancouver. Unfortunately Gordie Howe will not be making this year due to his health issues, but Yvan Cournoyer will be stepping in for him as well as several other NHL Alumni. The more funds we raise the more funds will be put towards awareness and research towards this horrible disease. This year my wife and I have dedicated all the funds our team raises to her grandmother who just this summer lost her fight with Alzheimer's and passed away. Every dollar counts guys and is very much appreciated! :) The donation window closes at 5pm PST today. Thanks Here is the link for donations: http://my.e2rm.com/PersonalPage.aspx?EventID=134789&LangPref=en-CA&RegistrationID=2239750 _______________________________________________ "I got to get the Swede, eh?" - Saku Koivu
- Comment on Canadiens head home from Vancouver with NHL’s best record; Canucks’ Burrows suspended three games (2014-10-31 14:09:36)
A couple of things having been at the game last night.... 1) "The Canadiens battled back from a 2-0 deficit in the third period Thursday night in Vancouver before losing 3-2 in a shootout." They lost in OT not shootout Mr. Cowan. :) 2) "“We played a good game,” coach Michel Therrien told reporters in Vancouver after the game" I'm not sure what game MT was watching, but it was very sloppy on both sides... yes the Habs turned it on in the last 7ish minutes, but overall it was rather hard to watch with all the lazy passes to nowhere and lack of net presence. 3) Eller and RB actually played a strong game all night, if they keep it up the points will come, I'm not worried. 3) (or 4 for those keeping count) The Canucks got a major upgrade in goal when they picked up Miller... had that been Bobby Loo in nets the Habs would have won it in regulation. With that said, the way they played last night they didn't even deserve the loser point from OT. All in all I'm glad they tied it up and made it a little more exciting in the end. As I said to all the other Habs fans I saw on the way home... we will get them next time. _______________________________________________ "I got to get the Swede, eh?" - Saku Koivu

The Habs game will be on SportsnetOne tonight but tomorrow nights game against Calgary will not be on in Vancouver unless they show it on Sportsnet Pacific as a westcoast broadcast.... So happy I'll be at the game against the Canucks on Thursday, should be a fun time. _______________________________________________ "I got to get the Swede, eh?" - Saku Koivu
- Comment on No lineup changes expected for Habs vs. Avalanche (2014-10-19 14:18:19)
Speaking from personal experience with him. He always thought of himself above and better than others because he had been on that show as a kid. I agree he was in some Oscar winning movies, but as I said..... the character he plays is always the same, and its just an annoying character. Yes that is my opinion of his characters, and other might disagree. I also said I give him credit for making a name for himself playing characters that are similar to his own personality. You know what they say, "first impressions are important as people carry that image with them". I hope his attitude has change from back in high school /cegep, as he really wasn't a down to earth guy. I will admit he has done right by MTL and Canada lately when he has done appearances. so maybe his attitude has improved. However I'm still not impressed by his acting abilities. lol

He is an annoying Montreal comedian who can only play one type of character and yet thinks he is an amazing actor ever since he was on Popular Mechanics for Kids back when he was in High school. I'll give him the fact that he has made quite a bit of money from being himself and making people think he is actually acting. lol _______________________________________________ "I got to get the Swede, eh?" - Saku Koivu
