i unfortunately have to deal with the constant onslaught of what is the so called center of the hockey universe on a daily basis first hand. i live in burlington ontario. it is absolutely sickening. Our family moved up here in the early 70s from Montreal (my Dad was transferred) but i have never wavered from being a Habs fan. In my teenage yrs in HS i always had the last laugh with that Hab dynasty in the late 70s. l took an incredible amount of abuse from Laff fans-but in the end Lord Stanley would always end up being paraded down the streets of the greatest city in the world. At 50 yrs old and with a family full of Hab fans the tradition continues. i took my wife and son to Montreal this past weekend for the game vs buff,we make a few trips up every yr. this time around I took them up on Mount Royal to show them how great a city Montreal is. they loved it from up there and noted how much nicer it is than Toronto. Let it be known to all Habs inside/outers that not all west of the Quebec border are anti Montreal. there are many of us here in southern ontario who will continue to bleed red white and blue no matter how much the Toronto media continues to jam their Laff crap down our throats. Nothing but disdain for all things Toronto-loserville. i am coming to the summit next yr to meet you guys. i have lots of great Hab stories(have met many players over the yrs) i can share and also a bunch about the futile Laffs that some of you may be too young to remember!(we thought we had a rough decade of the 80s?) PureHabitry Forever!

Don't disagree with you,we have to have a few guys(like Picard) with a physical presence, but if we try to match them with any kind of goonery we have no chance. That was the mistake teams made in the mid 70s, then the Habs came along and reeled off 4 straight cups with the speed game Tonight will still be nasty.

Hissy fits?!A man that coached in the NHL and won over 500 games,and a Stanley Cup, not to mention managed the egos of todays pro athletes does not throw hissy fits. What a ridiculous comment.That was passion and the desire to win every time the bell rung.
