He needs to have a brain to be able to have a brain fart.

No fair. Boone and everyone up north gets the TSN Team. On NHL Center Ice in USA it's the Comcast Capitals feed. Almost as bad Homers as Broons announcers. On the Erat penalty their view was Markov tripped over Budaj and the goal was a lucky bounce. Oy!

Frankie the Bull's fight the other night was the spontaneous kind. To me that has always been part of the game, but at these point in my life I can live without it. The Parros fight was just stupid. Our guy was driving to the net when it happened.

Winning ugly, no?

Sight lines are probably still lousy in person.

Love the video clip. The kids' in their dads' jerseys is like golfers' kids in the Masters caddy jumpsuits for the Par 3 contest. LaRue hits the nail right on the head. There is tons of latent racism underlying the reaction to PK, be it opposing teams' fans, media, etc. How many other Norris candidates get cross-checked to the head with no call? There's a certain level of respect that superstars are entitled to, and PK isn't getting it.

Here's what I'd like to see -- Habs up by 3 or more goals and a whistle in the last 30 seconds so that MT can call a timeout. Think the Bell Centre will like that?

Sorry all. I hit submit too early. Kerry points out that the staffing of the situation room -- the people who make critical decisions on the interpreation of important rules -- ARE NOT TRAINED AS REFERRES!!! What a great system!! Here's Kerry's column: http://www.tsn.ca/blogs/kerry_fraser/?id=422689

I never liked it when Kerry Fraser was the ref for Habs games. He played too much of a role in the outcome of too many games (like the one when MT got the bench minor against Carolina). But I really like his "C'Mon Ref" blog on the TSN website. Below is the link to his column today, in which he explains why Ottawa's first goal should not have been allowed. Even more amazing to me than the missed analysis is the point of the last three paragprahs --
