Hey, idiotte fried man, CHeck out who is 'the class of the East'. Tenderize that bjstuck.
Hey moeman - I'm a reporter at the Toronto Star. Can I talk to you for a story? firstname.lastname@example.org
@Orangeman (to continue from previous post)Because it's the Sens, they were promised to not start earlier than Wednesday. Wednesday is Rihanna. So Thursday. Friday, Saturday, Sunday is fucking Marie-Mai (wtf) and apparently the NHL is like "lol what no we're not waiting for Monday for Game 2". So according to Ian Mendes it'll be Thursday-Friday (Marie-Mai moves a day) and Monday-Tuesday. If that's true FUCK YOU GARY.Fuck shit stupid NHL make the Saturday game in the afternoon or something. Double back-to-backs (even one back-to-back) is SHIT.And according to Bartlett: Game 1 Thursday, Game 2 Friday at Bell Centre. Game 3 on Sunday and Game 4 Tuesday in Ottawa. This looks to be the real schedule. STILL STUPID.
The sched is up now at NHL.com It's Game 1 ThursGame 2 FriGame 3 SunGame 4 TuesAfter realizing that the Sens just played back-to-back this weekend and a concert at the Bell Centre on Wed, I guess this makes sense. Good rest for our guys.
On the bright side, we get to hear everyone gush about Karlsson for THREE DAYS + game day. /barf
Better than a circle of jerks jerking off kadri.
Even worse! RDS now has Guimauve.........
Yeah but he is soft and white and mushy.
TSN year end power rankings.Bruins- (who lost 7/9 to end the season) #3Leafs- (who lost 4/6 to end the season)#7Habs - #fucking 10. So, TSN believes the team that finished 1st in the toughest division in hockey, 2nd in the East and 4th overall is barely in the top third of teams. A team that hasn't been able to beat the two worst teams in the East this month is 3rd best, and a team that couldn't even muster home ice is top 7. It's just hockey, it's just some meaningless rankings. But these assholes really should be ashamed of themselves. It's just embarrassing for their own dignity and reputation.
Sorry...what reputation is that exactly...?You mean the reputation they have as leafans? Nothing to be proud of! Never consider this to be a valid chart of any sort.
You're right of course. It's better to laugh at the lengths they go to justify this shit. On Boston #3:"L.A. won 15 of their last 31 games last season, Boston won eight of their last 18 in 2011 and Chicago won nine of their last 18 in 2010, so the last three Cup winners haven't been dominant late in the regular season."Toronto #7:"here's another team that gets outshot, but relies on winning the percentages."Then Anaheim #6 (who has done much better than either of them):" 8-9-2 in their last 19 games, the Ducks were winning big on the percentages early in the season, but it's not as easy to keep relying on above average goaltending and finishing while getting outshot."So, it's terrible to have a late season slump...unless you're Boston. And it's terrible to rely on 'percentages'...unless you're Toronto.Don't pull a muscle reaching so hard, guys.
Of course, on the other side of crack smoking, we have the Bleacher Report believing the Habs are coming out of the East to meet the BlackHawks in the Final. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1622216-stanley-cup-playoffs-2013-predicting-nhl-finals-matchupI mean, hey, I hope that happens too. But it seems like a lofty prediction. GO ISLE!
The common denominator in that equation is pretty obvious...DGMB
Let me just take a moment here to reflect. I remember watching the first DGMB presser where he talked about the pride he wanted to restore in wearing the CH on your chest. I agreed then that it was vital but never expected the results to come so fast. And I say "results" even though they haven't won anything yet. Still...1st place in the Northeast Division, 2nd in the Eastern Conference, and 4th in the league overall...no small numbers there. This is a team that has a lot of potential as we start the second season... Potential Norris Trophy Winner, Potential Calder Trophy Winner, Potential Masterton Trophy Winner, Potential Stanley Cup Winners! There - I said it. No excuses - Just Fuckin' win!Go Habs Go!!
@Orange - why even bother looking at those bullshit rankings, they mean absolutely nothing. Maybe I'm old and cynical but whoever holds the trophy at the end of the year is King of the Hill. That TSN/ESPN fantasy shit is just that; fanboys sitting around jacking off looking at hockey stats.I like the Habs chances against Ottawa, they should be able to out score them, but it won't be easy. I'll predict a 7 game series.
Offence wins you a lot of regular season games. Defence wins you games in the playoffs. Goaltending wins you the Stanley Cup! Now is when TFS has to start to live up to the handle!Go Habs Go!!
Let's not say bad things about Marie Mai, I have a thing for her. Marie-Mai Bouchard @MarieMaiReal 7hNous savions depuis le début qu'un changement de date était possible pour un de mes soirs au Centre Bell dû au Hockey.Marie-Mai Bouchard @MarieMaiReal 6hJe comprends la déception de mes fans et ça me brise le coeur égallement, croyez-moi. Soyons respectueux de la situation quand même.
The way I look at it, the HNIC dorks would be talking about the Laffs for the first round of the playoffs if they did not make it, so this is just the same thing except the Broons can humiliate the Laffs and this will create a great dilemma in the bullshit universe of HNIC because the the Broons are the second in line for their love-crush. Theyh wanted the Habs to play the Laffs in the first round so they would not have to choose between the Laffs and the Broons. In their minds they both could win. Now, one of their crushes will have to be beat out in the first round.It will be fun to watch this series, just to see their confusion....
Agreed. Wanna bet they yip about the leaf during the Habs vs. Sens games?
29's segment opens with some Zevon.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5puAN1PGQw
I think I may have said this last thread. I think Habs in 6. Win the first 2 at home, get lulled to sleep by the Sens' defense in games 3+4+5 (but win G4) and then take them out in G6. Yeah, Ottawa has played well defensively, but they simply can't score. Their leader has 12 goals. The Habs have 5 guys with more than that. As long as Price and our D are somewhat competent, I believe we can win 2-1 or 3-2 games. Sorry, but while defence is important you can't win a 7 game series with 4 guys who average a goal every 4-5 games as your firepower. It's not like the Habs are uncompetent on D either (well, until April anyway...I have faith it'll return).
Also want to add that this is the first series since probably '94 that I actually, genuinely, believe the Habs will win. Not that I didn't have faith before, but I would be surprised if they didn't win it (not being cocky, I wouldn't be shocked, I'd just be surprised). Even when they got 1st a few years ago I was still ambivalent about the broons, and the same with the Phlyers the next round. But this time, 4-5-6-7 games, I'm pretty sure the Habs will pull it off.
Which now means of course that they'll get blown out in four straight games. There now I jinxed it.
The Ottawa Senators are a fine and distinguished opponent whom I greatly admire. They have super character and tend to play with gracious sportsmanship. Lets not forget about the fine management team and coaches that put together this years version. I look forward to a spirited series, and while I hope Montreal wins, I will bear no malice to any victorious team in this well run and entirely fair league. Yes lets give some props to the leadership of Gary Bettman, and the unbiased judgement of Colin Campbell.
tsn, can't let it go; "It took a day longer than expected, but the NHL's playoff matchups finally are set. And fans of the Montreal Canadiens and (leaf) will have to wait a little longer to see those teams meet again in the post-season." Go Bruins.
Final NHL rankings, that actually make sense;http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=668283
Predictions mean sweet fuck all by whomever self proclaimed semi-reputable tv station or personality. Anyone can win on any night as its played on the ice instead of between some biased (I.e TSNlike declarations ). Go habs go
Well said and go broons.
Hard to believe you actually typed that.
Under the circumstances it was easy and fun.
The NHL rankings are quite spot on I'd say with a few tweaks here and there. But what the fuck's up with the "Super 16"? Must be a Bettman thing. Sounds American. Like the puck with the comet tail. Guess we'll then wait for the Great 8, Fantastic Fucking 4 and Terrific 2.Hope the Loafs/Broons beat the fuck out of each other with their awesome truculence. Habs/Sens will be a speedy, classic affair. Habs in 5.GyMFHG>!
Should be a good one. Sens barn in Kanata may tilt it for the Habs but a 6 game series wouldn't surprise me. Thanks for the home ice broons.
I wanna see a Shaved Ape/McLaren confrontation.CBC is also polishing up the kesseltracker.
I'd like to see a broon, any broon, wipe the smirk off of kadri's face.
Hey, did 29 do his media whore thing?
Yup and it was really good. I'll let him fill in the details if/when he wants. Suffice it to say that he laid it out there for us common folk and the Bro knows his foolscap §hit inside/out. Plus he likes Marie Mai, who is a cutie (never heard her sing though).
@moe, did you respond to the request above? Or is it a trick?
Its legit, 29 is on it for us.
Sens in 6!Book it.
Shouldn't that've been 'Jimmy says book it' ?
I'll wait 'till the third round to start the third person speak.Should be a good series. It might even end up being 2007 AHL Playoff MVP vs 2011 AHL Playoff MVP.GSG!
@Jimmy, enjoy all the Habs fans in your building.
Good luck and have fun.

I suspect kadri is going to be one hurtin' unit after the B's get done with him. I also suspect he'll be hearing lots about the "kiss".
This is some seriously fucking good shit kicking;http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-2xhg_vPP6s
I shouldn't care, but man, we NEVER get respect. When we're a low seed, nobody picks us. When we're a high seed, nobody picks us. Screw these pundits man.
You got it Chamby. The majority of the mediots are just there to show off their CotU hair, they are either clueless or biased or both. Fuck them and their Habs hate. Bonus for the upcoming series, they also weirdly hate the Sens because for some reason as leaf fans they feel the need to slag everything Ottawa. Sick fucks.
The more thay hate and ignore us the better. Where did their leaf lovefest ever get them? I will be cheering on the B's for that one (never thought I would say that)and I will relish watching the HNIT crew wiping each other's snotty noses from all the crying they're gonna do. Oh yeah, we should start a drinking game, take a shot for every time HNIT'ers make an excuse for their beloved leaf.
Well, you know the B's are their second favourite team, so even if the leaf get the boot they have a fallback position: cheering on Canada's team - the Boston Bruins.
Moey, we'll be drunk with 2 minutes.
True the M, when they peel off their leaf jersey the Bruins one will be underneath. moe,I realize that but it's the only way to get through it.
Where are they finding these new tranna leaf lovin' mediots, middle school? This Mark Masters kid looks like he doesn't even shave. I bet he even has leaf undies.Chamby is dead on, I haven't seen anybody pick the Habs to win in the CotU media, although McKenzie just said the Habs were a pretty good team all year. Still he says it's a pick'em series. But, the pundits are saying the B's are primed for an upset just 'cause they're playing a team of superstars who can fight like hell. Should be interesting tonight to see some of this mediot shit on display tonight.
There's a new one every year. Some slack jawed jackwad that 'grew up' a leaf fan.
Anyone know if CAL bumps itself up the lottery pick, does it affect their 2nd rounder?
Second rounder remains as is even if they win the lottery. Don't know if MB will package some of those high second rounders to move up in the first round, but unlikely. I'd like to see them pick one of two guys from the Q, 6-4 center Frederick Gauthier, who scored the winner for the gold medal winning U-18's or big winger Anthony Mantha.
Thx the M. The future goalie crew needs some beefing up. Any CHance that Zachary Fucale is available for the first (or 2nd) pick?
Yes Moeman, according to the site which has a credible facade and is aptly named 2013 NHL mock draft the Montreal Canadiens are two draft spots below his projected 25ft projected placement. Should all the parameters and expectations of this groups groupthink prove correct the rights to the gentleman in question would be acquired by the Flames organization, led by the brilliant unorthodoxy of Jay Feaster. A very clever man who recently made Pittsburgh a punters pick to win the Stanley Cup. Should we dare to enter into negotiations to acquire these rights, is a question I would leave with those who have a level of expertise I can only imagine.
According to the same website which by appearances and historical record should be given a large measure of creditably Jonathon Druion will fall with the Panthers sphere of control for a not insignificant time period. There he will join the ever coveted Master Huberdeau in a stable of unprecedented pure laine hockey players. This situation is not even close to being a dichotomy for Canada's only world class professional sports team. Respecting the integrity and professional guidance of the superlatative NHL team based in Manhatten allows only one outcome. The finest French Canadian Hockey players in the world should have a low expectation of playing in Quebec let alone Canada. It is blasphemy to give any credence to the economically correct but still tired talking point that the success of Canadian teams allows failing teams to keep the ice surface frozen.Its foolhardy to suggest that having more teams playing in areas where hockey is not part of the culture is a superior plan to expanding where hockey is a religion. Let us not be zealots.
Who the fuck is this articulate poster using Steve's name? If it's the "real" Steve, I suspect 29 has been coaching him in acceptable internet behaviour.
Ones expression is a portrait of oneself. There is no coaching, there is no behavioral modification there is only greater understanding. Unspeakable circumstance is a portal to un-examined circumspect. Upon forced reflection reading my old expressions I can rationalize that in the spirit of the moment the dynamic expression had undisputed humorous peaks. Nevertheless for the most part it was a valley filled with a river of self indulgent drivel.
tsn panel of picks is a fucking joke. For those of you that ever doubted my disgust for ol' blue and white haired dave hodge, he choose a couple of leaf, tried to make it a joke, he's the fucking joke and a leaf fan that has zero integrity and has become completely insignificant and will say/do anything to suck up to leaf fan.
Yeah, what a crock of shit, I don't know why I even bothered. Gag.
The media, both in Canada and south of the border, is full of guys who spent their childhoods watching their favourite team get manhandled by the Habs. There isn't just a dislike for the Canadiens out there, there is abject hatred and disrespect. Even when the Habs won the East a few years back they were saying there was no way they'd get past the broons. There's rooting for your own team, and then there's going out of your way to disrespect the fans of a certain team that your network is paid to cover.That's why I really didn't want a Habs-leaf series. I knew they could take the dopes, but the media onslaught would have just been too much. And I don't think the Habs themselves need that sort of hatred on an everyday level. Let the leaf and broons beat each other to death for the Romans who want blood as entertainment, the Sens and Habs are going to play hockey.GO HABS GO!
Agree totally, I couldn't handle listening to that bull crap for another four games.
To nite to celebrate living in this land with such a magnificent economic action plan and strong leadership that keeps the internet going, I will be watching GOT. I have signed up for the requisite package its a mere $600 a month, what a bargoon. I led by example on this and those of you who lack the moral fiber to follow, at least pay for the optical stuff.Can I just put in a good word for the tireless Mr Kenney, he has lived a chaste life for you people, no partner, no life aside from public sacrifice. A hat tip to the selfless Mr Kenney who at this moment is protecting us from phony marriages. As I understand it, this is not were a man might marry a girl to disguise his true sexuality. No this prevents a Canadian citizen from being used by a foreign national with the express purpose of fraudulently optioning a passport. For over two hundred years this has not been a priority and look where it has left us. Godspeed Mr Kenny keep those phony foreign nationals where they belong.
The Sens irk me. They're irksome.
What's all this splooging over Karlsson? Oh, he's the Norris trophy winner from last year. Well, the Habs have the Norris trophy winner from this year. Friendman on CBC "You come on and make these predictions and people are like, 'well, he really hates the Montreal Canadiens'." Yes, Elliot, that's exactly what we think. Actually, I have no idea if you personally hate the Habs, but I know in order to keep your job you have to play that game. That's why every single 'expert' at CBC has declared Ottawa the favourite. Because they want to keep their jobs.
And this is the point I am struggling with. How can the Habs not be favoured to win against a team that finished behind them in the standing? It defies logic. Morning O man!
Morning? Ha! I'm almost done work (345pm here). Tomorrow's a holiday and tonight's quiz night along with house doubles for $7. I'm gettin' THIRSTY! But 'morning to you, too, KmaXXX. Is May Day a holiday in Britain (IIRCC it was in the Netherlands...and I might not recall correctly...being the Netherlands). The party line over at CBC is hilarious. Odd that so many 'experts' differ on almost every other series but predict this one exactly the same way. I'm sorry, Karlsson isn't that much of a game changer. Anderson, maybe, but they can't win if they can't score. Even when Halak stole the Caps and Pens serieseseseses, the Habs had a few guys that could find the back of the net. Anyway, fuck it. Such a wait! I hope Prust is relaxing like a sloth on zoloft this week, he deserves it.
The Brits like to bookend the month of May with "Bank Holidays". So yeah - Monday is a holiday here - which is good as I'll be up late watching the Habs Sens game on Sunday night!!Good luck on the Quiz - You know my theory on these kind of affairs O-Man - "Always Double Down".
I refused to watch the CBC "panel" make their predictions mostly because I couldn't listen to bjstuck open his yap. So they all picked Ottawa to win, good, makes it all that much sweeter when they have to eat crow later.It's all such fucking bullshit anyway, who cares what those idiots predict they don't know anymore than we do. They are just filling airtime. I'm ashamed to admit I watched TSN's draft lottery, such drama, those poor bastards (the GM's) having to sit and watch Boy Wonder Bill Daley open fancy envelopes and some hot chick dressed to the 9's putting them on a board. Then I listened to Duthie's cast of clowns do their predictions of the Habs/Sens series. Same crap, the 7 seed is favoured over the No. 2 seed because of some puny Swede defenceman and a Price's perceived struggle. I liked what LEGO said after the leaf defeat, what happens on the weigh scale or in the gym means sweet fuck all on the ice.I'm not going to predict any winner, but I expect all the games will very close and the Habs will be playing tough defence in front of Price. I also expect that LEGO's line will be a factor in a positive way. He's been on a mission the last few games.
i actually watched it (slow night) and it was a split. bjsuck and elliot freakman pick the sens in 6/7. Weeks has the habs in 6 and friggin healy has em in 5. on a side note.. doesn't Stuck live in montreal? hope he has to pay triple cover a super sexxe
Pretty sure the danseuses refuse all of bjstuck's $10 (aka dix, which in English rhymes with dicks, which is what bjstuck walks into the club with in his hand).
If any of those bouncers watch HNIC, they shouldn't even let him in the fucking door with all the anti-Hab shit that spews out of his yap. Either that or let him in and then throw him out. Literally.
Just read the article in the Toronto Star about the Brian Burke lawsuit and our own HF29 is prominently featured. It even mentions he has a client. Go 29!!

I was tuning in the shine on the light night dial Doing anything my radio advised With every one of those late night stations Playing songs bringing tears to my eyes I was seriously thinking about hiding the receiver When the switch broke 'cause it's old They're saying things that I can hardly believe They really think we're getting out of control 29ontheRadio is a sound salvation 29ontheRadio is cleaning up the nation They say you better listen to the voice of reason But they don't give you any choice 'cause they think that it's treason So you had better do as you are told You better listen to the 29ontheRadio I wanna bite the hand that feeds me I wanna bite that hand so badly I want to make them wish they'd never seen me Some of my friends sit around every evening And they worry about the times ahead But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference And the promise of an early bed You either shut up or get cut up, they don't wanna hear about itIt's only inches on the reel-to-reel And the radio is in the hands of such a lot of fools Tryin' to anesthetize the way that you feel Wonderful 29ontheRadio Marvelous 29ontheRadio Wonderful 29ontheRadio 29ontheRadio, 29ontheRadio
Me too the M. I try to stick to my 'top 4'. Hawks/Kings in the west and Habs/Pens in the east. I truly believe the Habs will make the conference final. But playoff pools generally are decided on which position you draft. I may end up going with Caps/ABBOT* and Canucks/Blues. *ABBOT - Anybody But Boston Or Toronto.First pick and I'm taking Patrick Kane. That and a dime will get me a phone call 30 years ago.
When I get into a pool the first thing I do is cross out the Boston and wretched leaf stats. I'd rather pluck out my eye than cheer for those fuckers to score.
When I get into a pool I go submarining.
