This team is mismanaged...........I have been generally critical of MT and Briere, then I ask myself how did they even get here???????? Well the buck stops with the GM and to this point after almost 2 seasons he has failed. Yes, I still want MT gone and the sooner the better but now I feel MB doesn't have the keen hockey sense to build a championship team. Clearly Patrick was a better choice for coach but perhaps MB would have been threatened by him. While I can appreciate the "press" boys would like to see an all Qubec player and managememnt team those days will not happen....it's called the "fair" draft leaving MB to pick up aging former star players who are cleraly past their prime. The only way to contend is to hire/select the best hockey people/players available. Until we do that we will get more of what we are seeing tonight.
- Comment on Habs get day off after loss to Bruins (2014-03-14 08:16:33)
Last week I made some less than complimentary comments concerning our Habs (just after the Western road trip). Basically I said they sucked and were just party boys out there and don't really care enough. Many posts said thats what happens when East teams go out West. I said I would recant my words if the Laffs did the same as us!!!!!!!!!!! Well.....my observations are unchanged, the Laffs are better coached (by a mile), the Laffs are younger, the Laffs are tougher, the Laffs out skate us, the Laffs out work us and most importantly they want to win more than we do. At this rate if we face them in the 1st round I find it hard to think we will win a game. It all starts at the top with MB afraid to select the best coach and go with a secondary selection to keep the press at bay. Then his great signing of Briere, again to keep the press excited. I could go on naming all the other players that would not survive on any challenging team and a lot of it has to do with lack of effort, just putting in the time and collecting a pay cheque. The question now becomes do we want to keep the press happy or do we want to make a serious attempt to win a Stanley Cup.

Poor coaching decision to go with a small line up...it's like Men against Boys! Our small guys can't get near the net. We're going nowhere thsi year and next year I hope we don't have MT, Briere, DD, Gionta and Boullion.

Disappointing western road swing. Quite frankly the team sucked, too much party, too much fun, too much time off, poor excuse for a coach. I will eat those words if the Laffs suffer the same fate on their western swing now underway. Let's see who wants it more!!

While I really like Markov we must look at any serious offers for him. He is at his highest value right now; we are not a contending team; he will not be part of a Habs Cup; his injury record and his age. It would have to be a "knock your socks off" deal to make the trade but you never know what's brewing in those GM's heads.

Big deal............/..No Gold and no Stanley Cup, the little weasel will score goals if he's left alone on the ice. Just like his cheerleader Cherry who also won nothing (oh sorry coach of the year way back when).

Well hopefully my 500 e-mail complaints to CBC about their on air staff constantly making referrals to the "Lafs" and "Kessel this and Kessal that" worked...not one freekin word. Now back to the "goon" show the Laff media love and "Kessel this and Kessel that", however, I will be there to remind them they (Laffs & Kessel) are losers. If anyone senses a massive dislike (hate is such a strong word) of the Laffs you're right. By the way....Congrats CANADA

I find myself cheering for Russia simply because of the "laff" biased CBC broadcasting crew. Simpson (Mr "cheatin man") and Healy (Mr "swiss cheese") are falling over each other trying to kiss (felate) Kessel. I hope their all gone next year when Sportsnet takes over, although being Toronto based I'm sure they will have their share of "laff butt kissers" waiting in that felatio line.

Only 2 games in and I'm sick of the "Sat Nite Laff Lovers Crew" Just their voices make me want to puke especially Healy!!!

Markov's value will increase up until the trade deadline....we should move him subjet to a great return. Gionta should be movd by the deadline as we have (or should not) no intention to resign him. Briere should be moved by the deadline as his value will only go down and he's not part of the future other than being on RDS. I've seen nothing that tells me we're going beyond the first round if we even make it that far.
