- Comment on Habs ink three-year deal with Sportsnet for regional TV coverage (2014-09-02 22:34:42)
When Rogers and the NHL signed the deal they guaranteed that there would be no more regional blackouts, which they lied about. However, this deal may actually be viewable coast to coast. Now I don't know the details but Rogers owns the national rights to all the NHL games in Canada. Because of this I believe they would be able to use the regional broadcast and have it still available nationally. The main reason RDS isn't able to show the Habs nationally anymore is because they don't have the national rights anymore. Rogers does. Keeping fingers crossed.

Love the NHL naming a division after Glen Metropolit. ;)

I hope Neil goes after him when Marchand gets back after his penalty

I'm watching a boston feed online. Wow their announcers are so bad, I'm hoping for Cole to cut in. :s

Quick question, shouldn't Vinny have gotten a penalty for winning the faceoff and shooting it directly over the glass?
- Comment on Habs return home after rookie dinner in Florida (2013-03-12 11:47:43)
They will not ban it because it is a useless move. Any decent goalie will know that they are unable to lift the puck and if the goalie just covers the net along the ice the player cannot score.
- Comment on Gomez sent home, he’ll be bought out (2013-01-13 12:20:27)
Under the old CBA and under the new CBA, Gomez still counts against the cap even if he is just staying at home not playing. The reason they are doing this now is because they don't want him to get hurt and then not be able to buy him out in the off season. Before this new CBA was done, they did not have the option to buy him out with no cap hit.

If I remember correctly, the NHL used its option to terminate the CBA early and that is why we are in the situation we are now.
- Comment on NHLPA considers labour laws to block Habs from locking out players (2012-09-09 23:58:20)
Naw, it just means Molson will be pissed because he will be the only one that has to pay his players.
- Comment on Canadiens draft Collberg, Thrower in second round; Bozon in third (2012-06-23 05:56:07)
Wow, I'm glad the AC isn't GM of this team. Staal wanted to play with his brother. If we traded for him, he would have played the final year of his contract and then signed with Carolina in the off season.
