  • 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 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.

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.

  • Comment on Brière will be in Habs lineup against Lightning (2013-11-12 16:13:24)
    Thanks! Her grandmother suffers from the disease and its a cause that is very close to her. This is the 2nd year she headed the team. Last year they took top spot in fundraising (and beat the Scotiabank teams). This year the corporate teams are trying to show them up and not have that happen again. Any amount helps from you guys.

  • Comment on 1993 Stanley Cup flashback: Habs win Game 2 thanks to McSorley’s stick (2013-06-03 12:00:10)
    I actually met Marty last year at a charity fundraiser here in Vancouver, and had a chance to chat with him (obviously once i mentioned I was a Habs fan the playoff series came up). He told me the reason why they knew which exact stick had an illegal curve on it was because they had dragged the entire Kings stick rack down the hall and measured each stick themselves during intermission, this was in itself not above board) as they had told the Forum security guard on duty to take a walk.... That same security guard came clean to Marty at a later date due to guilt of abandoning his post. So yes all may be fair game in the playoffs to win, but it still doesn't sit to well with my morals. _______________________________________________ "I got to get the Swede, eh?" - Saku Koivu
