- Comment on Liveblog: Game 78 – Canadiens fall behind 3-0, win a wild one 7-4 (2014-04-04 23:02:21)
I hate to admit it but MT out coached me again. I was ready to pull Budaj after it was 3-0 but what do I know. Great to see the players sticking up for each other. I read at least one comment that said Tinordi was bad tonight but I disagree. He made a couple of mistakes but other than Weaver all the dmen did. Tinordi nailed a couple of big hits and had a great fight with Gyrba after the big oaf has to try to hammer Briere. I can't believe how much better Patches is with Vanek on the line. It is awesome to have a top line in the league. Super to watch.
- Comment on Emelin will be in Habs lineup against Lightning (2014-04-01 14:42:43)
Firstly let me state that I am an Eller fan and I think he'd be in much less of a funk if MT hadn't played him with so many different line mates. So though I should be happy that he is back on the third line I really liked him playing with Bounival and White. That line was playing really well and I don't understand why Therrien would break them up. While I'm at it, give me Tinordi instead of Boullion please. Frankie makes at least as many mistakes as Tinordi and though he might move the puck better than him, Tinordi is bigger, stronger, tougher and a much better dman than Boullion.

You're right, and it would be pretty boring if we all thought the same thing. Imagine if we all liked the same sort of woman. (Oh yeah, we do.) Anyway, Briere is still not worth 4 million but I might like him better if he does well in the playoffs. Always liked Bergeron and still don't like Therrien. We have won the last two games but we could easily have lost them because we were very sloppy. There are some big games coming up, but Tampa will be a pretty good test. As for Vanek, I don't think you'll see MB offering a seven year deal and I don't think Vanek is the least bit interested in staying here. However, I have lost my GM licence a couple of times this year already. That's how we get it back, by keeping our big mouths shut for a couple of days.

Just three short weeks ago we were heading into the weekend 3 points behind the Leafs and during the game in Ottawa were being bashed and written off by the idiots on HNIC. Well, we all know what happened against the Sens and after we won the next day we were a point ahead of Toronto and now they are a full 11 points behind us. Leafland is in turmoil and the Canadiens are coming on. I love it! Now we need to get back to solid hockey and win in Florida.
- Comment on Liveblog: Game 73 – Budaj brilliant, Galchenyuk’s Shootout goal beats Bruins (2014-03-24 22:48:51)
Well I'm officially eating crow. I can't believe that Therrien knows this team better than I do. Next thing you know I'll lose my job as GM as well. Hats off to Montreal, Budaj, Weaver, Plekanec, Gionta, Murray and Markov. Hell of a game!
- Comment on Habs will start Budaj in goal against Bruins (2014-03-24 12:59:56)
All of a sudden I am not so excited about tonight's game. Maybe Therrien is playing a hunch, and just maybe we could still win tonight, but the odds of that happening just got exponentially smaller. I'm not even going to talk about the other line up changes. I guess it's better to focus on winning against the hapless Sabres, but I'd rather face the Bruins with our best players on the ice and not on the bench.
- Comment on Habs’ Prust out for rest of regular season; Galchenyuk moves to centre (2014-03-21 16:46:34)
Sorry to hear about Prust, especially after he played his best game of the season. The great thing about Prust is that he is actually the enforcer on the team. No one gets away with a cheap shot without Prust stepping up and letting them know that is unacceptable. He is a great team player and I guarantee everyone on the team loves him for it. It sounds as though he could play if he had too and he is being given a chance to heal. Others on the team will have to step up.

That's just it. Six shots on goal and he is dialling it in. Just imagine what he could be like. If he's playing hard then Galagher is out of this world!

Watching David Deharnais play now is so different from the way he started the season. His legs are moving all the time. This is unlike his line mates who have that stride where they pretend to be moving fast but are only going at about 70%. At least Patches increase that speed when he has a scoring chance. I said I was never a Vanek fan, but would be willing to become one. Unfortunately, Nilan was right and Vanek is just dialling it in, and that is not making me a fan. Considering that he will want a long term contract for 7 million a year I know that MB isn't interested.
- Comment on Liveblog: Game 68 – Frankie Boo wins a wild one (2014-03-15 22:48:59)
I'm watching the game with a buddy who is not really a hockey fan. When the score was 4-1 late in the the third he wanted to call it quits. (I actually did too.) But I told him tongue in cheek that Montreal was going to come back and force OT. Now he thinks I'm the greatest hockey mind ever. Me, I think I had one beer too many and when I wake up in the morning I'll be wondering if "The Comeback" actually happened.
