    Hi Mavid, I did answer your last 2 emails but I don't think you saw it or maybe you didn't receive it.

    You are right re his popularity. It may be more like fame now than actual popularity for I, like Chris, now find him stale and almost annoying. He has however earned his fame. “Protest Rogers blackout of Habs game…sign at: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/no-habs-blackout-rds.

    I was surprised when he did not get that job also. But last week he spoke on TSN690 and very candidly talked about the rejection and how he came away from that experience. After earnestly praising the performance of Bartlett (the man who got the job), Derek Wills spoke about the disappointment and how he asked for and took to heart several evaluations of his style and presentation and made recommended adjustments in pitch and volume especially. It was a great example for anyone who has ever been turned down for a job to hear and emulate. He sounds like a great person and congratulations to him on the Calgary job and much success.

    What an awful game eh. I was a captive audience (on a stationary bike with no other good channel to watch) and still couldn't get distracted enough by the game to forget the boredom of the workout. “Protest Rogers blackout of Habs game…sign at: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/no-habs-blackout-rds.
  • Comment on Will 2015 be the year Habs end Stanley Cup drought? (2014-08-22 10:05:07)
    Somewhat true. But if the team loses (wouldnt really matter if they are playing badly although that may go hand in hand), then the fans will get on their own respective whipping boys. P.K of course will garner the most (he has always been the focus) and it would be tied into his contract moreso now... but Price, Pacs, DD, Bourque will all have their usual critics pointing them out. “Protest Rogers blackout of Habs game…sign at: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/no-habs-blackout-rds.

    I think the HABS are(were) as great as the Rangers by the time of the semifinals. And while Price may have bolstered the team a lot, goaltending was not the problem. Tokarski gave us good goaltending. I think the Bruins series let down was the problem (including under-estimating the Rangers)... and that the coaches could have had better preparation for the series. After the first game debacle, the coaches basically played into the Rangers hand with too conservative an approach. “Protest Rogers blackout of Habs game…sign at: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/no-habs-blackout-rds.

    If I may, I would like to join in on the discussion prompted by HabinBurlington's response to the question. I quote: "I still think the Boston series drained Montreal physically and mentally. That was a huge mountain climbed and conquered. Given the team is relatively young, it was hard to regain the poise and such required in the playoffs." Quite possibly the case. However I am with Chelios24, especially going forward. I quote Chelios24. "I agree, but in my view a Stanley Cup winning team needs to keep the motor running for four series, not two". On the surface the opinions above seem obvious and even unsubstantial answers to the question. But they provide probably the most difficult task for the coaches. And I repeat emphatically... the coaches. The HABS have as someone said, on paper, a team capable of going to the finals. The hurdles of injuries (there will be some); emotional drain (there definitely will be that) and playoff fatigue or depleting exuberance after any series will have to be overcome by the team. The coaches though will be responsible for providing the solutions. So both HabinBurlington and Chelios24 are right about what 'happened in the past' and therefore right in predicting what must be successfully mastered to win #25. It wont be talent at this point but management of talent that would be crucial. “Protest Rogers blackout of Habs game…sign at: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/no-habs-blackout-rds.
