Thanks for the tip Timo... I used XBMC with Sportsdevil last season but found the NHL feeds hit and miss in quality. I'll give the NHL add-on a try.
- Comment on Cournoyer speaks about vacant Habs captaincy (2014-08-25 12:53:21)
I wish I could have seen him play but it was before my time.
- Comment on Markov as next Habs captain? (2014-08-19 08:51:52)
If you want to stick it to Rogers and not add money to their coffers... hook up an inexpensive PC to your tv, download and install XBMC and add the Sportdevil video add-on... whenever the Habs weren't on CBC in SOuthern Ontario.. I just fired this up and watched. One caveat is that depending on the feed, quality might be affected but in most cases I was able to find it in HD. Perhaps not for the the technologically challenged - but if you have any ability around a computer or a buddy who does, it works quite well.

Apparently not very physical... though neither was Gorges. Gilbert is billed as a bigger body with more offensive upside, and less shot blocking ability.

Maybe even bump Gilbert to 3rd pairing and slot in Beaulieu in the 2nd and sit Weaver.

Interesting article and poll for who should line up next to Subban... http://awinninghabit.com/2014/08/11/poll-will-p-k-subbans-defense-partner-montreal-canadiens-blue-line-next-season/ I'd say: Subban-Emelin Gilbert-Markov Weaver/Pateryn-Beaulieu/Tinordi PP: 1st: Subban-Markov 2nd: Gilbert-Beaulieu

I'm hoping he posts up next to Pleks and pots some goals... balance the line out a bit.
- Comment on Former Hab Ryan White signs with Flyers (2014-08-08 09:10:38)
People seem to forget White has had concussion issues.. his days as a fighter are probably limited or done.
- Comment on Subban wasn’t fazed by arbitration hearing with Habs (2014-08-07 10:12:00)
That bodes very well for Sekac and the Habs... if he can slot in nicely with Pleks - it could help both of them. Pleks can tutor him on the system and build some chemistry before the season even starts. I'll contemplate scooping Pleks in the hockey pool.
- Comment on Habs, Eller far apart heading into salary arbitration (2014-07-23 12:10:00)
I'm really shocked... I can only guess MB believes Eller does not have what it takes to become a core member of the team.
