Gone for the day kidz. Be nice and listen to juce.
Everybody go read Saint Paddy's last comment on last night's thread before proceeding. That is all.
That's good CBC rantin'
SPOILER ALERT - Goose dies GYFHG!! I'd kill for a double win Fla weekend. 5 PM? Ugh. That's really gonna interfere with Bears-Packers
From TSN Fucale will get the start vs Slovakia : "Excited...it's a great challenge..."--Fucale Charles Hudon, formerly 13th forward, seems to have earned full-time job on Drouin's wing alongside Mantha; trio were good in Super Series
what is with Hudons back, he has like carpal tunnel back. I say take some time off and heal.
...and go Rangers.

Will we see phat timmy in nets today?
I really like Floridas utes, especially Bjstad he went 19th overall two places ahead of our own Tinordi. From the 2010 draft aside from Sequin and Hall our own Kid G is arguably the best player picked. Christian Tomas went pretty high at 40. Therein lines our SMURF problem. All of our top forward goal scorers prospective are little tiny smurfs Thomas, Renway. Then you move up to mama bear Smurfs like Hudon and Colberg, but none of these guys is a cant miss top six. Our defense is also showing signs of reality distortion field. Neither Tinordi or Belidau are burring up the AHL, in fact they are struggling. The best of the bunch Hamilton gave him migraines and he had to go back to Sweden. Going forward we have three studs, Price, Galyenchuk, and Subban. A semi dog in Patches and Kid G, and a bunch of interchangeable pecker commodities. If one of our smurfs does not become a Squid and one of two of our defence reach above Diaz level, we must land free agents to take us to the top. We are going to half to trade away half our smurf potential and half our defense potential to land at least one more star.
we should have tanked last year, got a top ten pick and only been one star away from a parade.
Tanking is never an option, when it comes down to it, the drafts are really a crap shoot.
tell Pittsburgh to give back all their cups
How's Edmonton doing with all those draft picks every year? Sidney Crosby is the best in the world and that crap shoot was a winner.
BTW I looked it up Renway who is the stud of the world jr so far is five ten 175. I he was like me the same height and nearly 2oo lbs he would go first overall.
So the princess is about to become a non tradeable 10% er. Thats a nice anchor for the leaf to tie up ten percent of thier cap space on. With all the other crazy contracts in leafland, the fail will continue into the next decade. For us it makes PFK a problem, he is easy a $8 to $10 on the free market. Phucktards wiill offfer sheet him, bet on it. Thats why we must get him signed now. I hope he takes a hometeam discount at $8. Or how about 8 and we fire MT today, sold.
If they get rid of MT, PFK will take it. Set PFK FREE!!!!
totally agree. Ottawa builds there offence around stick man Karlson, PFK rushes the puck and gets benched WTF
Just watched Lego's OT goal - right between the pads.
Juce predicts, comes true, are we going to win the cup?
I can certainly say WITHOUT A DOUBT that we will bring home the Cup long before the laffs can even remember what it looks like.
which reminds me both the hockey hall of fame and HQ should be in Montreal. WTF Toronto and NY
comes down to buttface hating Canada and ergo the Canadiens being the most storied franchise in history. What he seems to forget is that the Canadiens are the reason the NHL even exists.
Booty call tonight.Go Habs Go!!
Since the Habs didn't give me my birthday win last game, I know they'll make it up to me today and all will be forgiven.Go Habs Go!!!
It's time for Timmy to come up against kidG, it'll be fun.
I bet Timmy has a piece in his jock
...maybe even one where Smith keeps those 'winning pucks' hidden too.
Carnaval not in.
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!
I HATE THESE 5 PM GAMES I AM NOT SUFFICIENTLY DRUNKHi everyone.
I hope to catch some Habs action during Bears-Packers commercials
I don't advocate tanking for the Habs, but if it happened next year I wouldn't complain. Don't know how else to get the superstar player the Montreal Canadiens need and deserve. The league (Buttman) won't let Geoff Molson buy one, which he should be able to since he is supplying the league a huge amount of revenue sharing coin. Geoff should just walk up to the draft podium this June and tell Gary straight up: "We're pickin' first, so tell Buffalo to get over it." Or go over to Pittsburgh's table and tell Mario: "were takin' Crosby's contract off your hands. Here's Daniel Briere back. Thanks.
many upvotes for this comment, if we had upvotes here
DINNER THREADI am not yet eating dinner because THIS GAME FUCKING STARTS AT 5 O'CLOCK
I am, however, drinking. Ungava gin (from Quebec!) and tonic. Snacking on PC World of Flavours Poutine (from Quebec!) flavour CHips. It sounds gross, and they really don't taste like poutine, but they're delicious nonetheless
Baton Rouge ribs - 2 for 1 at IGA ($12.99) mmmmm. Too early yet but it only takes 15mins so if I get a hankering later it's dooable between periods.
OOOOHHHH. I didn't know they made Baton Rouge pre-packaged ribs. WANT.
....bring back some of those empties and it's almost free.
Bears up 7-0. Rooting for the Bears, because of Marc Trestman. Want to see him succeed
Just got rid of the in laws and their noisy kids so time for the game. I loves me a 10 pm start ona. Sunday! Go Habs go! Go Habs go!
I will suffer this 5 PM Eastern time start just for you KmaXXX
The question is of Orangeman's body has recalibrated to North American time or if it's still 5 AM for him and he's sleeping
*if, not of. maybe I am drunk enough already
Let's see some GOALS, lots and lots.
In our dreams
What the hell is "BB&T" anyway?
Kickoff! Errr, puck drop!
Love the 4th line starting. Sends a message
The message being SCORE SOME GOALS FFS
Let's go Budaj, go get your 1st victory vs FLA! Go Habs Go!
No Squid either?
Time to get those PPG's Cash it!
RBQ you're not helping
FFS Bourque cancelled that.
Still amazes me how often they can MISS the net.
Fuckin dd again - lazy back check!
It always makes me nervous when Budaj goes behind the net. Love him but still makes me nervous when he does.
Oh FFS!!!!!!!!!!! That was a beautiful goal.
Green Bay up 10-7
Steelers need to get in.
This team better get a good talking to during the intermission
What fucking garbage is Gagnon spreading - PatCHes is 'high maintenance' in the locker room? Says DGMB told him he has not offered up PatCHes to any teams but says what GM would admit it? Go Fuck Yourself.
4th line!!!! WOOOOOOOO
Strange...the guy on fox keeps referring to "big Lars Eller"...
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!

They've been sloppy for a month
I don't buy the 2 games in a row makes your legs heavy bullshit they sometimes spew...they just had a full week off...unless they walked from Tampa last night it's no fuckin excuse...skate you fuckin lazy bastards...
WAKE THE FUCK UP
kill me. again.
It's like we're mentally on the beach or something
EMpTy!! Call a fucking time out!
the Steve theory is we are not a championship team by at least 3 players, so its like skiiing when there is no snow
You can open up the big ski lifts and pack the pansies in a row. Still when they go down the hill there is no snow
the patheticness of that period can not be measured
That was as bad a period of hockey as I remember seeing in quite some time. Absolute load of shit!
FHFers, our team needs us, lets all put our positive energy together....ooooohm. They'll come out on fire for the 3rd.Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!
I am with you juice...go Habs go. Go Habs go!
Sorry about the spelling...fucking iPad
Spelling doesn't matter and I don't like to correct people because if they ever saw my math.....
Let's go Habs, you're better than FLA, show it and go get the 2 points.

Fucking refs, PleXXXe should NOT get a penalty. Go Fuck Yourselves.Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!
Hey kidz. Whatd'I miss?Drove my daughter back to Montreal and popped into Schwartz's for a smoked meat sammich. Waited 20 minutes in line but always worth it. Stopped for a couple dozen Fairmount bagels. Another line up.29 knows, those PC chips are tasty.My son works at IGA, so I gots me 2 slabs of those ribs. They're OK and taste better at the 2for1 price. A tad to hickory smoke for my taste but they're tender.
My daughter went to S. Viateur with her Father for 'brunch' (line-up) and brought some of those awesome bagels - I could eat them just like that.
Yup, did the St. Viateur last time down.
WTF F should not be capitalized on father, not at all.
Go Habs, you CAN score 2 and then go take it!Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!
Woooo FUCK REFUSED????????????????????????
GO FUCK OFF REFS YOU BASTARDS
gCHyuk was FUCKING PUSHED into the goalie - GOOD GOAL YOU FUCKER!
Go get JUSTICE and CASH IT!!!!!!!!!!Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!
About time MT2 shows some emotion and of course fucking Pollock the ref put his hands on his hips as a warning. Zero fucking accountability.
Cash it you lazy fuckin bunch of non skating sons of bitches!...who are playing shit hockey and should be ashamed of themselves! CASH IT GODDAMMIT,!
Why the fuck is Cube on the PP, fuck off MT with the favourites.
Time for a shortie. JUSTICEGo Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!
Packers just went up. This game is incredibleHabs game is a nightmare
Refs are a nightmare.
At the risk of sounding like a laff, THE REFS won the game. Habs would have been within 1 and (discounting the 1st refused goal) and could have come back.
Speaking of laffs, Go 'Canes and DIE you fuckers.
The only full game I get to watch here and not only do the Habs suck (no surprise) but the refs decide the game. This league is a joke. How much longer do we wait for someone who can actually score?
Fuck me...empty decides that with the goalie out he should have Daniel fucking useless ax Gomez piece of shit Briere on the ice...WTF! Empty is right...based on his play this season Briere should have been in Hamilton or at home fuckin empty's wife...he sure as shit had no business on the ice. FIRE THE FUCKING COACH. HE IS COMPLETELY OUT OF IDEAS. THAT WAS A FUCKING PITIFUL GAME. and if anyone says that they were tired they are a complete fuckin d ick
Well I think he hates Biere and puts him in situations where he knows he will fail. DGMB has to see what a useless piece of shit MT2.0 is. Any why does he put Budaj in when he has had a 6-0 vs the panthers? Why is Cube on the PP? Why is PatCHes? Why did he break up the very successful Lego line? - to give his homey DD a boost. Why has he broken up the best defence duo in the league - PFK and Vodkov? DO SOMETHING DGMB. This team was on fire last year and with TFS playing his 'A game" since this season began, there is no reason the team should be beat by a team such as the Panthers. Stay tuned.....
Perhaps the refs were confused with the name 'Campbell" on the back of the jersey.
sigh. that's all I can say
Go Canada with Fucale in net!
Go Canada Go!
Later guys and gals...I got nothin'...sorry
I couldn't bear to watch any more by the middle of the second period. Last night was bad enough but today was just painful. The sheer lack of scoring ability by this team is appalling. Or is it by design? Last year they seemed to play a more puck possession style of game with a good forecheck. The last few weeks have been more dump and chase only one man in. Almost Chokula-like, they have regressed into a boring, systems heavy team trying to play a New Jersey trap. It's unwatchable. Who would pay to watch this shite?They've scored 25 goals in the last 13 games. Do the math, if this keeps up they'll be on the outside looking in soon. What excuses will eMpTy come up with for this sorry lot next?
I am ready to make the net bigger the goalie smaller, four on four and eliminate the blue line. Instead of SO play hog the puck
so far all our utes are stars at WJC. Go fuc ale. A hattie for another of our Swedes whose name is not possible to spell in English, and Colberg got 3 points.
Like I said above, this team has regressed into a Chokula-like entity, devoid of any creativity on the attack. Therrien is playing a system to preserve a playoff position and keep his job for at least another season not to develop the youth. All he (MT) does is play his "favourites" and the veterans who will play defence first and benches any young player who makes a mistake.Going to watch two prospects today, Fucale and Reway for the Slovaks. Congrats to the German team on their big upset of the Czech Republic.
what Hudon chopped liver?
I am really excited about Renway, ready to drop him in for Gio next year
Hudon, meh, they already got LL, Dumont for that role. Reway (pronounced Ree-vye) may be smaller than Gio. Looks good as a junior but guys like Pretzel or Hartnell would have him for lunch twice over. The ones that will probably at some point have an impact are the two Swedes, Collberg and de la Rose. They are average to good size players.Canada ties it 1-1. Set up by Mantha, a 6-5 monster, reminds me of Eric Daze.
he is a inch taller than Gio, but still a super Smurf.
He's got some serious skills - 1G and 2A so far and dangerous every time he's on the ice.
Have to agree, MT plays his favourites and doesn't reward for good play. Kids make a mistake and they get benched or scratched but the favourites who constantly screw up still get to dress. I Hop DGMB is not blind to what is going on, though DDD and Biere was his mistake so not sure what he can/will do there. Last season they were a high scoring team, so what's the problem this season? With the way Price is playing this season they should be higher in the standings. Fire his ass!
I can't fault Sweet Fucale for the three Slovak goals so far, they basically had wide open looks at the net all three times. Not much he could do really. I'm not impressed with this edition of team Canada, they were obviously constructed to suit Brent Sutter - a north/south team with, other than Drouin maybe, not a lot of high end skill. The defence isn't that great either. They will be lucky to make the medal round.Moe doesn't like Ray Ferraro. I don't mind him, he knows his stuff and can pick out a lot of little details on the ice we would probably never notice. He has criticized the Habs on occasion but he's not a blue and white dick licker to my knowledge any way. He made a comment during the second period that I have long known to be true and we are witnessing it now with the Habs and likely with the other 29 NHL teams as well. He said: when these junior players get to the NHL all the creativity skills they possess are COACHED out of them. That, to me, is the biggest problem with the NHL now. Coaching, systems, video, scouting all contribute to a dull, crush the life out of them, fun destroying style of play that all teams practice. Can you imagine that shit happening in the hey day of Gretzky/Kurri or Lemieux/Jagr? The record book would look a lot different today I'd wager.Before the junior game I was half watching the Spengler Cup game between HC Davos and CSKA Moscow. Eight goals scored during that game, lots of mistakes, free flowing game on big ice. Actually fun to watch even though I had no vested interest in the game. Just guys playing hockey, not systems.OK, rant finished.
great rant totally agree Hockey MAN
Ugh. The Hangover - Day 2. I'm too friggin' old for this. Can't really get into watching the juniors. Probably watch the USA cream them tomorrow. And still...fuck u cbc.
Cash it, boys.
4-3 Canada!!!This is some kind of exciting hockey, unlike the Habs game
HANG ON BOYS
5-3 Oh Canada!!
just wow. Some kind of game
The kids are fun to watch although Sutter is doing his best to beat the creativity out of them. Give the Slovaks credit they hung in there pretty good. Should be a good one tomorrow against the Yanks. Steve will be waving his Go Harper placard.
Go Harper Go, there is lots of Canada left to sell out to the yanks and the chinks (if your offended I did not mean any offense, love China and welcome Chinese)
Love the WJComments.the M., my dislike for FerraRoar was in his earlier days where he thought he had to slag the Habs to get some CotU cred. He has come into his own and is more professional.Sutter is also 'coaching' out the freestyle skill these kids have. The guy is overrated.Nice comeback win. Reway looks PleXXXian. Nice to see Fucale on the national stage wearing our colours.
Agree, Ray is one of the better colour guys around. Unlike Hab haters Simpleton and Gallery.
Off to see 'Inside Llewyn Davis'.
Here (old sCHool theatre): http://www.bytowne.ca
Have a good CHoen
Inside DBMG, please correct me but aside from correcting TFS what has he done? Vampire Dan a total Bust, the DDD contract makes us lose trust. Crankshaft yet to be seen if the playoffs is were it pays off to be mean and stupid. Should have got Jagar, should have left DDD to in the AHL play. Maritimer is right this is Chocula's team with TFS taking the Jaro spot winning games when we did compete not.
Is there anyone of us that could not manage coach the Habs better? So lets crowd source this task. All decisions made by Habs fans vote. Of course you would have to be certificated to contribute, but how much worse could it be than the last twenty years?
Big TiTs is way better drunk than Bork no matter what he is on
I think that was TiTs problem, he liked the sauce. He looked (and played) like he was hung over a lot.
I lived well and did not even wear a helmet. So ironic a guy who risked death daily is brought to a mortal state by recreational skiing. I hope he recovers but if he goes down what chance to we have?
Should be two dandies tomorrow, Sweden vs. Russia and Canada vs. U.S.A. The Habs vs. Capt. Kirk's Hurricanes not so much.
I wanted to say something but in the end, whats the point
Dick Irvin, Colm Feore, Blue Rodeo receive the Order of Canada.http://fourhockeyfans.blogspot.ca/2013/12/get-your-vitamin-ch-here-habs-vs-fla.html?showComment=1388435753929#c5045454863817511589
Congrats to the long serving Mr. Irvin but never been big on all these Order of Canada's. So many mediot/journo-types get this 'award'.
