  • Comment on No morning skate before Habs face Penguins; White out with flu (2014-02-27 15:24:12)
    I haven't posted in a long time, but I had the unfortunate experience of watching the game last night and I have to hear what others think about the overtime. MT basically rolled Plekanec & Gionta and DD/Max as his forward pairs in OT even during 3on3. In a game where they were lucky to get a point and played absolutely awful, why not throw Galchenyuk and Eller out there for a shift of 3on3? I would have loved to have seen what Chucky could have done with all that open ice. I'm actually a fan of MT and his approach his second time around in Mtl, but last night had me second guessing his ability to develop our young players. Thoughts?

    You know it's bad when you watch American Idol instead of the Habs game ... glad I did though ... check out Brittany Kerr!... oh man I hope their lottery pick isn't as big a bust as hers.

    Question of the day: When the time comes for our lottery pick do we tote the company line and pick “the best player available”, or do we fill a need like a top line forward with size and finishing skill? There are a lot of d-men projected in the Top 10 of this year’s draft so do we pass up a guy like Dumba or Murray to take a forward? We do have Tinordi and Beaulieu coming up in the next couple years and Diaz and Emelin are coming along nicely now that they’re getting the ice time.
  • Comment on Audio: Blueline swap brings Kaberle in deal for Spacek (2011-12-09 13:47:18)
    I haven't posted in a long time, but I feel compelled to now. Possibly the worst deal in the cap-era history of the Habs. Did PG not know that Rutherford was shopping this bum around the entire league with no takers? The big reason was because it's a terrible contract for a washed up player. Now if Car had thrown in a couple picks or a prospect it would be much more palatable. Oh wait ... it's only the Habs that do that (ie. McDonagh). I'm shocked PG didn't throw in Beaulieu on this one. This moves wreaks of desperation ... Habs fans would have been much more accepting to suck up a terrible PP for the year and have the cap room for the next 2.5 years. Seems like common sense to me, but I'm not the GM. Moves like this give me hope that I could get a shot to run the team someday though!!!

  • Comment on Game 13: Higgy’s hat, Price’s shutout lift Habs (2008-11-12 09:36:20)
    Anyone know where I can buy one of the hats the players wear in the post game interviews? I particularly like the ones I've seen Gorges and Price wearing ... all black with a black Habs logo. Any help would be appreciated!

    http://en.fanballoting.nhl.com/ Koivu, Kovalev, Tanguay, Markov, Komi and Price are the early leaders in the East!! Price is the top vote getter so far. What a spectacle the All Star game is going to be this year!!!!!

    Man I love this site! Online shopping made personal at HI/O ... lol. That's not necessary though. I can always trouble my sister who also lives in Ottawa to pick one up for me. Thanks Don!!

    It appears as if Sports Experts is the official centennial merchandise carrier and the have the hat I want ... PROBLEM ... can't buy online and the closest Sports Experts store to Saint John NB is 5 hours away. Any other suggestions??? What is "Ex nihilo nihil fit" anyway?
  • Comment on Halak vs. Blue Jackets, Price vs. Maple Leafs (2008-11-06 14:30:06)
    Let's hope Carey doesn't make it. A lot of goalies come out of the all star game a little shell shocked and play like crap in the second half. Then again ... could be a huge confidence booster for the stretch run! That ESPN voting is hilarious ... I did it this morning and Markov was the only one in the starting lineup ... now all of them are!! lol I hope it works that way for the real voting. Then you might actually see the NHL change their methodology. Can you imagine not one of the NHL's shining stars like Crosby, Ovechkin and Malkin not being in the starting lineup!!
