    Thanks for the tip, Front, and indeed I used to vote for them. Then they formed a coalition with the equivalent of Harper, promising to be watchdogs. The only thing dog-like about it was them rolling over like a retriever when he finds a dead fish. So they're on the list. Maybe the Rhinoceros Party might consider expanding to Ireland....

    So did you. But you're still quite... sexy.

    Junior Seau?

    Brand is to English comedy what Marchand is to hockey: some gifts, but insufferable because void of class. That said, it was nice seeing someone as obnoxious as Brand laying waste to arrogant government policy. You're so right -- amazing that they listened, almost as amazing as the fact that the Irish population seem to have mobilized. My problem is that my list of Never-Again political parties has finally reached a length that might leave me with no one to vote for should the government fall.

    Thanks for posting, Lach. Really enjoyed seeing those again. Something I really like about them is that they are all (possible exception of Krejci) clean open-ice hits. Massive but clean. And it makes me wonder -- had other teams become complacent about entering the zone against Montreal and assumed that no one would hit them. In my book, you should understand that you face that possibility any time you cross the blueline. Those guys' heads are all up, but they don't seem to believe that anyone will be interested in hitting them. (I saw the Rat hit when it happened; have had to replace the Replay button about 6 times over the years since then). Ference is a puke. NESN is puke. I felt sorry for Larsson, but what a pop. I think PK has to sort some things out, maybe stop looking for the homerun and be content with some mid-size pops that inspire a little caution in oncoming opposing forwards. I also want more of those from Emelin, perhaps Allen, and Tinordi eventually. Cheers

    Hey Matty. The normally supine Irish public have actually forced a government u-turn on water charges. Whether you've been following the issue or not, you might be amused at how it grabbed Russell Brand's attention, and his version of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV7KojDB87o

    Ha Front. No one here would be surprised if I had forgotten not only what you tried to teach me, but the ensuing 49 hours as well!

    In the middle of trying to think up a witty and HILARIOUS riposte, it occurred to me that we need to organise some annual exchange trips between our schools.

    You're very sensitive to recent trauma, omitting names of former Habs whose dollars per goal was pretty spectacular.

    I'm not a DD hater, and I would generally defer to MT's judgement in most matters owing to the bigger he sees that we don't. But the fact that DD remains on the PP has me utterly gobsmacked. I was hoping you learned ones might pitch some plausible theories. - Like a delayed sneeze as you stand there with your eyes closed and your hands wide, is DD on the cusp of an offensive explosion on the PP? It's always just about to happen, so this would be the worst time to take him off? - Language? Anyone trying to sell me that one I will forever associate with sales cold-calls from the bank and utilities. Thank you but no. - Max can't score without him? (Even an infinitesimal wisp of truth to this should mean we train Max to score with other centres rather than albatross him with DD). (No, not now Timo! I'm being serious!) - MT is as irrational as he is stubborn? Nah - too good a way to wipe out any possibility of a new contract or extension. - No one else is ready? (No one could possibly believe that) - Embarrassing photos? - The mayor swung a backroom deal involving some protection-running bikers out of shame for his anti-DD assault last year? I mean, it doesn't take long before your possibilities start ranging into the absurd. Finding one really plausible explanation seems impossible to my small hockey mind. Help, please. We're in 1st place now -- can you imagine if we had a killer PP? Can you imagine if we had even a mediocre PP? We would be devastating.
