  2. Just as the game is starting, the UK will be welcoming in the New Year, so I might be a bit late to the Habs end of year party...but they better put in a better effort than they did in Florida because I don't want to waste my time if they can't be bothered.

    In case it gets past me...happy new year to all you 4Hfers! Thank you Moeman for a great year and here's to an even better 2014!

    Go Habs Go!

    What hockey! The Americans are a fast skilled team, they look better than the Canadian team.

    Now, this is fun to watch. NHL teams first priority is to not get scored on so you get a lot of boring left wing lock, neutral zone trap shit. Both these teams have put the pedal to the medal from the beginning and haven't let up. Big time entertaining.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Canada is not looking good right now. Or the Americans are just WAY better.

    Happy New Years FHFers! If there was one day wehre a 5 PM game would be helpful, it was today. Sometimes the NHL sched makers are confusing at best.

    and SCORE SOME GOALS FFS

  12. Happy New Year All. I think the NHL owners and the MAN should be watching exciting hockey and trying to figure out how to bring it back to the NHL. Another Idea make the PP three minutes and your on the PP for the full three no matter how many goals you score.

    3. quotes from the internets

      Committing to Phaneuf long-term means you're committing to this Leafs roster that gives up shots, doesn't take many, and wins games by hanging on to the skin of its teeth.

      Considering how much of a screw up he is, the Leafs should have let him go. Every time he's on the ice you can count on the other team scoring on the Leafs. Now we have to put up with him for another 7 years.

    3. Hi 29, I really liked it as well. It reminds me of one of my favs

      24. “Assignment: Earth” — For the first time, the Enterprise time-travels by slingshot-ing around the sun, something that would enable the events of the film Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. This time they travel to 1968 Earth, where a time-traveler named Gary Seven (Robert Lansing) has been perceived to be altering history. Roddenberry had hoped “Assignment: Earth” would be the pilot for a Trek spin-off starring Lansing. That didn’t happen. It is notable for featuring one of the earliest appearances of a young Teri Garr.

      Delete
    4. "What is that?"
      "That, Miss Lincoln, is my cat"

      "What do you expect me to type with, my nose?"

      LOVE Assignment Earth. Teri Garr just kills in it. I am embarrassed to admit I have never heard about this potential Gary Seven spinoff. Wow.

      Delete
    5. From Memory Alpha: "This episode was designed partly as a pilot for a new series featuring Gary Seven and his mission. Star Trek was teetering on the brink of cancellation late in its second year, and Roddenberry hoped to get a new show going for the fall season. The first draft pilot script (14 November 1966) had no mention of Star Trek or its characters"

      Just wow!

      Delete
    5. I skated next to him at the ChrisMoose skate last year. He was definitely 6'1" but he was "skin-nee." He needs to bulk up but who knows what that will do to his speed and flexibility. He handled the Baie Comeau goons well last year, but they ain't the Bastard Broons.

    Is it just me or does this hockey seem faster than the Habs games? I know it's a lot more wide open, but it seems quicker. That Habs/Panthers game was horrid, seemed like they were skating in quicksand.
