So I jumped over to the London Knights page to see what's going on with Mike McCarron. I thought the guy was injured for another few weeks? He's played three games and has a goal and an assist. Looking forward to catching a few of his games on the super sports package!

I'm sure there are plenty of Canadiens players, past and present, that have done foolish things in bars. Unfortunately for Lucic, there was a cellphone camera rolling.

People in Vancouver dislike Lucic because his Bruins beat the Canucks and won the Stanley Cup. Lucic also made several strong comments about the city and the hockey fans there after his parents were harassed during the finals and people were trying to pick a fight with him in a nightclub. So the radio guy there already has it in for Lucic, as do the media and fans in Montreal. So everyone is piling on and saying things like his life is spiraling out of control. They are fabricating and exaggerating things. I hate Lucic too, because of when he beats up our players, because he and the Bruins knocked us out of the playoffs a few years ago and then won the Stanley cup. All this other off ice stuff is just stupid and people need to grow up in my opinion. Lets concentrate on beating the Boston Bruins on the ice and not lowering our standards by belittling him off the ice.

I disagree. It's still fresh enough and Lucic, Chara and Marchand were all big parts of that Cup winning team. The Bruins also made it back to the finals. We won two playoff rounds...

The one thing Jack Todd is wrong about in his article is his opinion that the Canadiens completely have the Bruins number. Yes we knocked them out of the playoffs last year, we have also won the majority of regular season games the last few years and historically have been the better team. However, them knocking us out in the 7th game in OT a few years ago and winning the Stanley Cup still trumps everything. Until the Habs win the Cup, Lucic and company are still ahead of the Canadiens. The Bruins have the bragging rights.

Tinordi had total control of the fight. He was is no danger and McLeod doesn't appear to be in the same weight class. I mentioned earlier, I still think Tinordi is going to be an absolute beast when he fully matures. Wait until he's 25-years-old and gets involved in a rivalry with a certain team or certain individuals. Can't wait!

Great fight by Tinordi last night BTW... It seems McLeod bit off a bit more than he could chew. Tinordi is getting stronger on his skates, more experienced and should be one of the toughest guys in the league in a couple years. He even let up on McLeod at the end because he's a good sport. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjT5HQKNV3k

I haven't seen a second of John Scott this season and am 100% behind the idea of having players on the 4th line with a combination of skills and toughness.

Subban...WOW. What an amazing talent. Such a treat having one of the best players in the world on our team. Watched the game with my pops last night who's an old school hockey guy who doesn't like too much hoopla and celebrating after a player scores. Even he was pumped up and loved both of Subban's goals :-). And what happened to Jarred Tinordi being 3rd on the depth chart behind Nate Beaulieu and Greg Pateryn? I guess not? I won't name any names of posters, most of them are the guys who prefer fancy/flashy players and are turned off by toughness, they all said Tinordi needs another year in Hamilton. Just goes to show how much they know about the game.
- Comment on No lineup changes expected for Habs vs. Avalanche (2014-10-18 08:58:51)
Although the seats in Montreal are also among the most expensive in the NHL we are lucky that we haven't lost a real hockey crowd like they have in Toronto. When you tune into a game in Toronto, it's dead quiet and tense as can be. The cameras pan across the Leafs bench, you hear no crowd noise and it's like the players are standing in a police line. As the 2nd and 3rd period start people are also missing from their seats for the first 5-10 minutes because they're drinking cocktails and eating sushi. The entire makeup in Toronto is just terrible. That building and all the corporate ding dongs that occupy it are the biggest buzz kill any hockey team could ever have. I've lived in the GTA, went to the pubs in Burlington, Oshawa and downtown. That's where you find the real Leafs fans that would be roaring if they could afford to be in the building on a regular basis. They would give the team that little extra push. Instead, you occasionally hear the most depressing and pathetic "Go Leafs Go" chant that probably lulls the players to sleep instead. You can hear a pin drop and the players are petrified to make a mistake.
