Welcome back Moeman! Glad to see that your time away has not dulled your edge. A killer SF once again!I'm gonna wish you lot a very Happy Canada Day for Sunday. My flag will be flying all weekend just to annoy/confuse the neighbours ("Canada isn't playing in Euro 2012 - why the flag?") but my oldest turns 16 tomorrow so we are having a bit of a weekend celebration for him - so I'll follow the comments on my phone.Happy SF 4HFers! Happy Canada Day! Viva Italia and Go Habs Go !!
Great SF Moemen, wow your just like Clinton, finding stuff on the Beach.I will be flying my flag but upside down, Country in distress.GO HABS GOSign us a couple of beauties, dump a couple of bums.
Nokia is back!! well that answers the who is our 4th line center.
The good news is we finally have our “Fail for Nail” type slogan for 2012-13.Play Nokelainen for McKinnon.
I can't believe they took Nokia over Staubitz!What's wrong with these people?
Rusty is not dead yet! Nokia did not get a qualifying offer either.
I am sure Rusty will be back.
I'll pray to the Hockey Gods.
TGISF!Great pics, moeman. Also want to thank 29 for holding up the fort.KmaXXX, enjoy the festivities and happy 16th birthday to the offspring!
Poor kitty, all that waxing to get beach ready. OuCH!Moe, how was the vacay and was the weather nice?
The vacay was a short but an unexpected treat as I tagged up with some 'old' friends in the FLA Keys for two days and three days on a private boat to/from Cuba. Scrumptious food, fun and sun. The weather couldn't have been better. Mother Nature is simply spectacular. I'll add a beach bum pic that describes where my mind and bod was at.
Excellent! I live for vacays...
At 575K (just 25K above minimum), I'm hoping the plan is that Nokelainen is the 13th forward and we sign a real fourth line centre.
If we start the season with Nokia 4th center, Gomez 3rd and Lego on the wing, Kafka 5th D, we are playing for a lottery pick.
Which by the way I am perfectly fine with. Two years from now we should be awesome.
Gonna be gone for a while, up to three years, job for which I am uniquely qualified has come up.
Steve - be afraid...be very afraid...You know she's not gonna look even remotely like that picture. You do know that don't you?
I know but who can resist the challenge of fighting 3 guys at once.
Anyone notice that replacing 'pop-ups' are now annoying audible ads?
nope, silence here. When I am streaming video some sites do give audio ads.
I got one for Woolite while checking your potential employment.
Haper's watching, I got Woolite 'cause he knows who's female and who's not.
Brodeur, an unrestricted free agent on Sunday, has hired player agent Pat Brisson to represent him and might be ready to test his value on the open market.
Watch burke open his wallet. hahahah
Juce - I could see that happening! Wouldn't that be the saddest way possible for him to end his career. Didn't Cujo and a couple of others end up doing that? Mind you, the leaf have been a graveyard for a lot more players than just goalies. That should be their new recruitment slogan - "Come join the Leafs and watch your once glorious career end with a load of people laughing at you!"
Burkka written all over him. Now he does not have to sign LOO. He can pay 5 mill a year and still be ahead.
Not like going out with a bang. Would mean more games against the CH for Marty.
IF Kafka comes to camp stuffed like a Check hot dog, I would taser him.
She digs crazy guys, so I got a shot, Katie Holmes back on the market.
Wife #3 dumping Tom, Scientology is obviously a marriage killer. Up next....John Travolta.
Being gay is kinda hard on a heterosexual marriage as well NTTIAWWT.
All you need to know about L Ron Hubbard, his book Battlefield Earth is a great read, the movie not so much.
Rumor is price signs between 6 and 6.51
Just give him a blank check.
Its going to be so hot this weekend its going to be burning down the house.
DD, Pleks, Lego and Nokia are currently the Habs four centers. That'll strike fear into the hearts of the opposition. On the bright side, it looks like there's no room for Gomer. MaB must really be working the phones and calling in every favour he can to trade him to some cap floor team. GChuk is going back to Sarnia I'll bet, at least until somebody gets hurt.
I hope your wrong, I got a feeling that GCHuk is going to blow the doors off training camp. And by Novemember SuperPlek is supergone.
The torch burn brightly GCHuk, no pressure.
Huge rumour Patrick Kane to Montreal. He will have to work on his drinking but thinks he can handle it.
You know, this wouldn't surprise me with MaB's connections to the Blackhawks and they could be getting tired of 20 cents' act in Chi-town. Pleks could be on the move. Maybe Eller. Hjarmalson could be coming to the Habs as well. Hey, like Darche said, a last place team can expect some changes.
As a semi-Hawks fan, I don't really like Hjalphabet...
Moen gets 5 year contract.
Sorry that's 4 not 5.
moeNman!Love this signing. Pure team player. Well done DGMB and great to see you remain a Hab Travis."Veteran forward Travis Moen has elected to remain a Montreal Canadien for another four seasons.The 30-year-old potential free agent agreed to a US$7.2 million, four-year contract with the club on Friday. He is to earn $1.8 million per season after getting $1.5 million in each of the last three campaigns in Montreal."Travis brings tremendous leadership to our club and is very appreciated by his teammates," general manager Marc Bergevin said in a statement, adding he was glad to sign him before the free agent market opens on Sunday."He has a lot of experience and brings a physical presence to our group of forwards."
Great signing. Bring back Staubitz as well. They need a tough SOB D-man as well.
love it, and the man shows moves from time to time.
*happy dance* SASKATCHEPLOW!
Canadiens hire Jean-Jacques Daigneault as assistant-coach
Another one of my homies.Daigneault grew up in southwestern Montreal playing on minor hockey teams with new Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin and Pittsburgh Penguins owner and former star player Mario Lemieux.
This means no Big Bird.
Big Bird, if I am big bird do I step on a shit patty. All he can do in Montreal is fail. This team is not going to win the cup in the next two years, so what kind of Gomez shot to my face should he indure. Personaly I feel I could take five Gomez shots to the face before he broke any skin.
I would have preferred Big Bird, JJ's stats are actually horrible, as a Hab anyway.
From the Hockey News 2009, Getting to know JJ.Daigneault.Funniest Players Encountered: "Marc Bergevin."
Forgot the link, somme funny things.http://www.thehockeynews.com/articles/29877-Getting-To-Know-JJ-Daigneault.html
Now sign Staubitz.
Just read on Twitter that they're not offering him a contract. Crap, he's cute.
Too bad if true. Habs need some muscle off the bench.
Noooooooo. I hope it's not true.Hockey Gods, please don't beseech me.(he's cuter than cute)
One almost gets the feeling that DGMB is signing many Francophones to many positions on the CH staff to protect the team. Methinks there's a plan in place to keep the smarter ones off of the anti-CHamber and leave that stage to total blue-tongued fucking nutjobs like BR, bergie, Bluet et al.
I would like to see the coach give the anti chamber a new asshole weekly.
we all worked on teams, its not the brightest and the smartest guy in the room that succed, its a band of brothers, and I love bringing the esprit d corp back to Montreal. Is a mindset, yeah we could bring the American college shit here, fuck that, if we won a cup by being American, I would give one hand clapping.
MT2 is an ex-anti-CHamber member. I doubt he rips em.
and in the ying an yang maybe they give him and the team some space.
It is fucking ridiculous to pick the flyshit out of pepper on a team that is not a cup contender. When the season ends its over for me, why cant they take a break during the season. There are at least two tough years to go, take a pill, and wake up to the new Gloriux/
I thought it was picking pepper out of ant shit.
At least one more Steve, unless MaB pulls a rabbit out of his hat and I think he's going to this weekend. Stay tuned.Who is Bluet, BTW?
Bluet = Mario Tremblay
Just for the fun of it the Habs should hire Dave Keon. Make him the President of the anti-leaf club.
One of their greatest players and he scorns them to this day. Gotta love it.
okay i am totaled anybody else?
Yup, trying a Scottish beer, Belhaven's Best....got a good buzz going. GYFHG!!!!!!!!!!What? It's still summer? Drat.
In the Gazette.Some reports since Thursday, following the signing of Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick to a 10-year contract, have had Price almost with his pen on the dotted line of a six- or seven-year deal with an annual cap hit of $6-6.5 million.http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/Subban+Carey+Price+deals+works/6864414/story.html
MONTREAL - There was one snag in Travis Moen’s contract signing Friday: the document wouldn’t come through his broken fax machine.http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/Dave+Stubbs+Travis+Moen+happy+return/6864673/story.html
This is cool, Happy Canada Day!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBI68Il4Zsc
“Free agency only comes up once or twice in your career, and you’d like to see how other teams value you,” he said. “But Montreal made an offer, a great offer, that we couldn’t refuse.”In fact, Moen said the Habs’ proposal was on his plate for a couple of days.“We didn’t want to rush into anything,” he said. “Amy and I decided (Thursday) and I slept pretty good that night, better than I have the last couple of weeks. We have lots of good friends in Montreal, I play with a good group of guys on a great organization and I’m happy to be going back.”
mother fucking sister fucking hot out there folks, try and stay hydrated.
The Montreal Canadiens have agreed to a two-year contract extension with (Y). Bring on the big hit bitCHes!
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Glad for (Y)!I WANT STABITZ DAMNIT!!!!I remember the grinning nod of approval/pride one gave to the other from the bench while the other was taking down the opponent (not sure if it was Whitey to Staubitz or vice versa), they were truly brothers in arms, on the same plane, in sync, both in the same moment.It was magic!I believe in miracles.
Justin Smultz signs with Edmonton. I dont know what to say about this. Edmonton must be better in real life than I imagine.
Nothing to say. Just laugh about the leaf.
Just got in, helping my brother move.They got Gretzy & whatshisface to pressure him to sign.Better than going to the leaf.
Time for a Larry 'Big Bird' Robinson hit trophy;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU95er84Eo4http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRex6ts_XTEJust give it to (Y).
Q 4 da 4HFemmes, Souray worth bringing back or not?Steve, this one is for our luscious ladies.
Moey's all in.
Pretty, but not as pretty Staubitz.Haven't seen him play much in recent years, used to have a great shot. So if he's still up to the task and doesn't cost an arm and a leg, what the heck.
Best looking pylon out there. But meh.
Anna Galchenyuk @AgalchyJ'aime le CH:))))I want 29 to interview this A gal CH-y gal.
