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
- Comment on NHL players jump on board with ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (2014-08-13 13:36:06)
The whole ice bucket challenge is a wonderful way to have people at least become somewhat aware of ALS, however are the people soaking themselves also making donations towards research into the disease? For example, Bissonnette's "taking it to the next level" although quite impressive, must have cost a pretty penny to accomplish... would that money not have been put to better use by actually making a donation of that amount to a charity which funds research into the disease? My wife is heavily involved in several charities and sits on the steering committee of volunteers for an annual event which raises funds for Alzheimer's disease research towards a cure, to raise awareness of this degenerative disease and to help those afflicted with it. I know for a fact that that they make every effort to limit unnecessary costs so that the greatest amount of funds actually makes it towards the research and support. If anyone is interested in making a donation towards the event here in Vancouver, please let me know and I can provide you the link.
- Comment on Prust will be in Habs lineup for Game 1 (2014-04-16 15:55:54)
Everybody complaining about Franky Boo being in the lineup... ever think that it might be MT way of making sure he gets one game played in the Playoffs.... this way should they win the cup he would be able to get his name on the cup.... just a thought....

Ummm.... correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Czechs beat Slovakia and Sweden defeated Slovenia.... I'm just saying.... at least give Pleks's team props for taking out Chara's team... oh and to report things accurately.
- Comment on Prust set to return to Habs’ lineup (2013-11-13 13:09:19)
First, Glad to see Prust will be back, hopefully he is not coming back to early.... Secondly... Not really on topic, but sort of Hockey related… is regarding a Charity hockey tournament this coming weekend. My wife is involved in the Scotiabank Hockey for Alzheimer’s charity tournament on Nov. 15 – 17 at Canlan Ice Sports in North Vancouver. She is very excited about the opportunity to participate in a weekend tournament with NHL alumni and supporting a very important cause because this event will help the Alzheimer Society of B.C. continue their work to support families impacted by dementia and to fund research for a cure. This cause is very near and dear to her heart – She is hoping that one day, people like her grandmother can wake up and have the Alzheimer’s fog that has clouded her brain lifted. You too can be a part of this amazing experience. The easiest way to support her is by making a secure online donation to support the fundraising efforts of her team. The top fundraising team gets first pick at the NHL Alumni draft party. Simply click on the link to make a secure online donation using your credit card or contact me directly if you would like to make a donation in another way. https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/donate.aspx?eid=119390&langpref=en-CA&SPID=10776953&Referrer=direct%2fnone Funds raised through the 2013 Scotiabank Hockey for Alzheimer’s support the work of the Alzheimer Society, and helps to ensure that people in B.C. whose lives have been impacted by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia can connect to a province-wide network of information, education and support that helps them build the knowledge, skills and confidence to maintain quality of life. If I can get your help in distributing this message that would be great. Alzheimer’s is not only an “old person’s” disease – the youngest person diagnosed with Alzheimer’s was only 27 years of age. Every little bit helps to beat this disease. For more information about the Alzheimer Society of B.C., please visit http://www.alzheimerbc.org. Thank you for your support. Together let’s “put Alzheimer’s on ice”! The deadline for donations is TODAY November 13th, 5pm (PST). EVERY BIT COUNTS!
