  9. Now they're talking about what a fine young man PK is and how he's just going to get better and better. Seriously, it's like the complete opposite of CBC.

    Doesn't look like they are going to get anything by Niemi. Price better be perfect for at least 60 minutes to get at least a point.

  14. So if I've got this right, it's ok to pin players on the ice and also, throwing picks when the puck is dumped in is now OK...if you have a white sweater on at least. Just making sure I've got this right.

  34. No chance the habs are allowed to win this game. That said, considering their roster, I'm surprised and impressed how they're doing except for that 1st 10 minutes of the 2nd. Cold said "Desjardin missed a great opportunity" about the DDD chance off the back board. I'd still take Eric back in DDD's place.

      I caught that slip as well. Ol' Bob Cold was back in '93 for a minute there. It's a wonder he even knows where he is or what day it is.

  35. The Shark announcers, who have been pretty good so far (at least better than HNIC), on that tackle at the blue line "The refs know that you just have to let those battles happen!" Yeah, tell that to Cube.

    Funny how the Sharks or those other southern type teams have no problem bringing up a young defenceman or two and let them play regardless. But the Habs, oh no, can't have rookies playing and making mistakes, they'll be ruined. The Habs need size on the backend and have it in Tinordi and Pateryn but insist on small 38 year old Cube and marshmallow soft swiss mister III Diaz. Keep losing dumb asses.

    1. No one would talk about it anyway. Ask any hockey fan, they'll tell you how fucked up the refs are (across the league), yet no one in the league or media ever says a word. If you do, you're punished.

  45. There is a 15 foot circle in front of the Shark net that no Hab has touched all night. Even if we got a bounce like they did, no one would be there to pot it.

    Habs over matched against this team. Other than that brief flurry late in the second they've hardly threatened Niemi. I think they were fortunate to get two points against a flat, probably jet-lagged Ducks team.

  59. The positives: 2-0, but one on a bad bounce off the boards (and another on a possible offside and illegal knee-on-knee hit). Lots of injuries, terrible refs. Price looked good.

    There's something wrong with PK, though. He's not looking his normal self. Vodkov fumbled another easy pass at the blue line, I've seen that in the dying minutes many many times recently. DDD had too much ice time, in that he had any ice time at all. Gkid is made of steel. Hope Moen is okay.

  60. If it's any consolation to us, no matter how good the Sharks were tonight, they'll be out after 6 games into the playoffs.

  62. The refs didn't lose this game for the Habs, but it is interesting that once it was 2-0 they stopped calling what they called in the first 2 periods. Your league will never be taken seriously if a penalty in the 1st period is a hockey play in the 3rd. Of course, your league will never be taken seriously when attempted murder is considered a hockey play.

  66. Allow me minute here...I am taking exception to MT2. I have never been more uninspired by a Habs coach than I am with MT2 right now...except maybe Chocula...but I digress...he looked resigned to losing from the time I tuned in (end of 1st). He had his coaching ass handed to him by whoever it is tha coaches the sharks as well as by Larry Robinson, who is the person the Habs should have broken the fucking bank to convince to join the coaching squad years ago. Mt2 is becoming more and more useless. He plays his best players less and less and sticks with the fuckin useless French midgets because that way no one gives him shit when the Habs lose. Tonight's game was a complete fuckin embarrassment and he should be ripping strips off of the entire team...but he won't. He will say some bullshit about it being a bad bounce and

  67. Logan Couture was drafted 9th overall in 2007. You know what we needed tonight was a stud defenceman to defend against him. Too bad we didn't draft one 12th overall that same year.

  68. Just about what I said earlier about every fan knowing the officiating if fucked in this league, but the media refusing to talk about it: 690am right now denies the refs did anything wrong tonight right at the top of their show. Say anything about it, you're cut off from access. This league is pathetic.

      Orange, yeah the refs suck for the most part but that's not why Montreal lost tonight. San Jose owned them for the most part and the Habs had very little second effort tonight. Other than that flurry late in the second, they were one and done all night. Price kept them in it, he only gave up one, can't ask for much more than that. Nope, Montreal got beat by a better team tonight.

      KmaXXX caught something I noticed as well, Therrien is useless. I can't stand seeing that blank expression on his face... so Chokula-like.

  71. Boone over at HIO points this out:

    The last time the Habs got shut out at home was, like tonight, game #11 of the season last year (also a Sat night game). Remember that? 6-0 vs the leaf? And then they tore it up for the next month or two. History repeats?

  74. Just want to also add that it's been over 24 hours since the leaf beat the Pens and many more games have transpired in that time, not to mention the Vanek trade. Yet TSN still has Kadri making out with Reimer on their front page. We get it, the parade will be on Wednesday at noon.

    1. The Vanek trade proves Garth Snow is a traveler from another dimension. This is the kind of trade you make if you are the manager of the leaf, your job is on the line if you miss the playoffs or you are one player away from the cup.

    2. I must apologize, probably for the first time ever I commented without knowing all the facts. Vanek is a free agent at the end of the season and has made it known he wants to go to the wild. Wow Mr Snow, you make people happy.
