- Comment on Subban wasn’t fazed by arbitration hearing with Habs (2014-08-07 09:21:16)
I believe Scherbak is left off the team for political reasons. He has been very vocal of his displeasure with the way things are run in Russia, specifically with regards to treatment of the players. Sounds like Nikita has burned that bridge, but I'm not sure that's necessarily a bad thing. He won't be playing internationally for Russia unless he becomes a solid pro and makes an Olympic or WC squad.
- Comment on Budaj gets Wednesday start vs. Red Wings (with video) (2014-02-26 09:07:29)
I agree with those saying 1st round picks from contenders are overvalued because they're usually in the 20 to 30 range where prospects start to become longer term projects. I think trading for already-drafted players who are finishing up junior or showing progress in their first pro years is a better option because you're dealing with known quantities (to an extent). With that being said, Markov and a 3rd to Tampa for Vladislav Namestnikov and a 2nd? :)

Wow I never saw any of these originally. #leafsinsideout.com

Timo <3's DD
- Comment on Brière takes Desharnais’s spot at practice (2013-11-12 10:08:09)
Wow dude, really? So he just went from being an undrafted, undersized player who had to dominate at every level to prove himself and make it to the NHL with NO talent? That makes a lot of sense, I'm getting it now. Look, I don't believe DD is part of the next CH Stanley Cup, but he's a damn fine player to have made it this far. Show some respect for the kid.

Wow for real bro? Habs fans will complain about the most ridiculous things...

Wasn't Halak always trash in the shootouts for us? Funny what a good team does for a goalie's confidence in the skills competition. Lame game, two lame goals for the Blues. LUCKY goals at that.

Wow. Jaro's not gonna win an Oscar with that acting. Looks back to make the save "Oh it's in the net? OOHHH MY HEAD"
- Comment on Liveblog: Game 11: San Jose dominant in 2-0 win (2013-10-26 20:47:11)
Anyone else listening to San Jose's broadcast? Their color commentator is incredibly whiny. He CANNOT stop talking about Vlasic and is basically trying to say that he's better than Subban/should win the Norris. Downplaying any good play the Canadiens make and said the hit on Travis Moen should not have been a penalty. For real bro?

Diaz is just not ready to play tonight. He looks beyond awful. Someone needs to get in that kid's ear. PK definitely feeling it tonight...
