"It was awesome," defenceman Andrei Markov said.

"He's a first-class player and he moves the puck so well," Price said.
"When we're breaking the puck out, he just has the confidence with it,
and it makes a big difference. He's a big boost for us and he's pretty irreplaceable."

    3. Just to be clear, if a player is traded because of lack of performance here I'm not interested in what they do elsewhere.

      Saku Koivu was my favorite player. IMO Gainey's biggest mistake was letting him walk and replacing him with Gomez. That's a tough one to swallow. Saku would have put up better numbers at a third or less of the cost.

      Shelly is eye candy, period. And the PP laser ain't too shabby either.

  8. Why am I suddenly seeing local mediots thinking that Patches isn't the Habs Masterton candidate? Absolute nonsense. Perseverance is all about Patches. Sportsmanship? Definitely. He's all class and a true sportsman. Dedication to hockey? You bet. A role model both on and off the ice. Plays through injuries (separated shoulder, torn abdomen, torn wrist, ribs, etc) unless he's in a fucking hospital with a broken neck.

    These same mediots didn't think he'd be the same player after he was lying motionless on the ice... now he scores 30 goals, leads the team in points, and suddenly they're hinting he's not the candidate? Going to give it to Desharnais for the "Marty St. Louis undrafted shorty" thing? Here's a hint: the little guy is good, and if you've followed him his whole career this isn't much of a surprise, but in the NHL without Cole and Patches I'm sorry but he just wouldn't be putting up the points...

    2. Bark. Classic. All Bark and no bite, or playoffs as the case may be. Wasn't it just a couple of months ago he was saying "we don't want to just get into the playoffs, we want to bloody some noses, make some noise and not be a one round and done team." Heh. Looks like they'll be bloodying each other's noses with golf clubs.

    3. They will regret the hand-pass in D-zone thing. It will be abused for whistles until some other idiot asks them to make it a fucking delay of game penalty or something because the game will be too slow...

  15. I have to flare up here as the voice of reason. When your political party elects Boris Yeltsin, you have to raise an eyebrow. So if the Habs brain management now make a quixotic run at the playoffs you have to see yourself has abused serfs.
    I no longer accept making the playoffs as success. Its a loser club and it demeans the passing of the torch. Its like a bad episode of the Dukes of Hazard. Yeah we outsmarted that dumb sheriff, but he is still in charge and we are paying his salary. We must tank now, we must tank well,and we must hope one dip in the tank leads to creditability, cause we do not have anything left in that tank.

    1. Steve, with respect, you can't ever ask professional athletes to "tank" and certainly not ones that wear the CH. Ever! We'll get the pick we get and hopefuly do great things with it. This isn't a stellar draft year anyway, so perhaps 1-5 is a crapshoot.

      Let's please put an end to this talk of tanking once and for all. Thanks

    Are you guys kidding me? Fly all day, lose 4 hours and face a red hot team on their home ice and Ryan Miller? Looks like a losing recipe to me. Cut the boys a little slack, not the end of the world if they lose this one. And, KmaXXX is correct. They'll pick wherever they do and get a good player regardless. Plus with all those second rounders they should be able to move up if they REALLY want to.

    1. Yup. No problem. Someone should tell Benoit Brunet about that.

  61. KmaXXX, You were great as usual, additionally, you possess the added hockey expertise/knowledge that I do not.
    As I was watching, I kept saying WTF does Kaberle get so much ice time?? Markov had few good shots and some good plays, let`s consider it `live` practice till he gets back in good form. Even thought we lost, the Sabres` win hurts the puking leaf-bonus.

  62. Patches got that hooking call only because we had the PP. No way they could let us play the man advantage `cause we may get the game.

  63. Still more games, Vodkov will get stronger and THEN BENCH KABERLE, PLEASE!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I didn't catch the game, but four things;

    1) TSN highlights start by mocking Habs fans. "They can't accept it, their season is over." Math class is fun! /Ralph Wiggum voice. Listen, I'm not delusional but is it that important to start off hockey highlights like that?

    2) "THE SABERS ARE STILL ALIVE IN THE EAST! THE SABERS ARE STILL ALIVE!" Ok, calm down there. Even if they lost in OT they'd be 3 points back with 12 games left. I know they're selling 'excitement', but when it's Christmas everyday, the egg nog starts to taste rancid.

    3) I wouldn't know about this dirty play you speak of because no one feels like highlighting it or talking about it. I can tell that it wasn't PK spitting on the same ice as a white man because I wasn't confronted with JFK conspiracy style slow motion replays and analysis of the issue with other screaming white men calling for his head on a spike.

    4) According to TSN, Buffalo needed to win this game to stay alive while the leaf are ever so close to playoffs despite being 6 back of them (oh, and only 3 ahead of the laughable Habs).
