First, there are players on every team that 'embellish' calls. On the Habs I would say PK and Pleks could fit into that category on occasion. But perhaps it's perceived as necessary by the players because of all the non-calls...might as well try something. Secondly, it is magnified in Montreal because of the pure hatred by the english national media outlets (tsn, SN, cbc) towards the Habs. Let's not even talk about the broons and John Stewart's masterpiece on their work. The Habs tied for 2nd with 50 minor penalties against so far. Versus 32 penalties for their opposition. I love it when Hab haters spew falseties about the Habs 'getting all the calls'.

Here's an idea for a name for our #1 line. The Pac'D Van Line (pronounced packed). Loaded for bear and ready to move into the playoffs and keep on rollin' to the final. GO HABS!

MB best tread cautiously. Don't pull an Houle. Recognize the real issue and can the coach, don't trade your best player (by a long shot, save Carey Price) for a pile of crap. This team's getting harder and harder to watch.

I know what you're getting at, but I think PK has the smarts to know that if he so chooses he will be here long after MT is gone.

Yep, he clearly ruined the chemistry that was well and alive when Canada beat SLOVENIA in overtime!

Doesn't matter that Canada hasn't exactly excelled in the tourny up to this point - they lose tomorrow and the Tronna media will tell the world it was PK's fault. Clearly was a cancer in the room, blah blah blah...

They like to fly in for some late nite BBQ.

I don't know much about him, but Thrower sounds like a great pick - more toughness on the back end.

Getting Frk at 51 would be a steal. Best draft I can recall in many years. Edit: Damn!

So according to the Masterton preamble, Alfie returned from near career ending back surgery, Lupul survived 2 back surgeries and a near fatal blood infection and Max "returned from an injury". Bettman's fingers are all over that statement.
