Hey Mediots, try being truly proud and patriotic for a change.
Congrats to Budy Call. Slovaks could be sneaky good
+1. Habs may end up with (up to) 9 Olympians. FHFun.
bonus Leaf have zero
TSN had to show a PFK turnover. again. for the 600th time
They're still trying to sway Yzerman right up to the last nano-second.
Well, they do get results with it. Here's a comment on the Habs/Panthers thread."Nice turnover by Subban, good example why he shouldn't be on team Canada"
Saint Paddy when you get to this thread just wanted to say I watched the game until the end and I felt for you buddy. SO close. Was a hell of a game though
GET TO THE FUCKING ANNOUNCEMENT ALREADY
Fucking TSN, their video section features 2 with PFK. One is about players on the bubble, and the other will he be able to adapt playing a lessor role.
can a black man skate on the big ice, Canada wants to know
So this "Announcement Special" is just an hour of talking heads until the actual announcement? Kill me
Ah, jon loo fears for the 'R' word in Montreal if PFK isn't chosen. In his mediot mind R=riot. Sick fuck.
That killed me. Like they don't riot in Vancouver or anywhere else
Some one refresh my memory, where did PFK go play when the habs were out of it?
out of the playoffs, I meant.
Babcock says speed and skating skill are top abilities. PFK is kinda fast on his feet. Discuss.tsn says Matt Duchene is in.
Oh NOOOOOOOOOO.gCHyuk is out about 6 weeks with a broken wrist.
(Y)emelin and Vodkov on team Russia.
moeman that Roadrunner 'stache Canada ♥Habs pic is fucking fantastic
Moeman, man, I don't believe that you have ever featured a Tom Cochrane song on this version of the blog - about time! Nicely done!
I've got those mitts, maybe I should do my nails like that.

I'm here! Just got home from quiz night! Go PK! Go Price! (listening on radio)
Can't say I liked the video.
Always thought bob nicholson looked and sounded slimy.
Dude is breathless after a 10 foot walk.
Complaints from idiots on Twitter about "too many Frenchies on stage" in 3,2,1...
Quoting harpo, too fucking funny. (I know, I should be more patriotic).
SPOILER ALERTPierre LeBrun @Real_ESPNLeBrun 2mPK Subban made Team Canada
Fuck off with the politico talk. Get to the TEAM!
yada yada yada....some of us have to work in the morning.
He's knitting a quilt of mosaics.
STFU MARCEL NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOU AND YOUR SPEECHES
Can't say I liked the speech.
http://www.tsn.ca/live/hockeycanada/ ITs FREE its LIVE
Nothing like dragging it out.
Its called 'The Game'. No 's'. Although he did bookend his fucking way too long speech.
Way too many suits!
Old White Men in Suits, ack the MAN is picking our team
/ commits seppuku rather than listen to more speeches
This is what's wrong with hockey in Canada. Too much pomp, not enough circumstance.
It ain't pomp, its pump, the government. Sick fucks.
comment of the day o'man
FFS! Stop you fucking jerk off politicians!
So, with all the bullshit threads with PFK's pic featured, will tsn do the same when he's announced?
Minister of Transport? You're kidding right?
If this was Russia, Putin would have poison darted these guys by now.
Its so cold Lisa Rats vagina is no longer the coldest place in the world
Man, WhereTF is Ken Dryden for some real hockey talk?This is a fucking joke.
Well, might as well get a few hours of sleep in. By the time my morning alarm goes off we should be on the penalty door keeper from Moose Jaw's speech by then.
Twitter is quite entertaining right now. Love this one:James Duthie @tsnjamesduthie 42sWe might have the rights back before this is done.
There were less speeches at Mandela's funeral.
2nd best comment of the day.
on a roll go for the hat trick
When a speaker says 'I won't be long', he will.
I thought the same thing, but still giggled.
Dave Stubbs @Dave_Stubbs 47sThis is longer than an Alex Kovalev shift
Fuck, I didn't expect to prep the ice cream thread.
Babcock wants speed and skill. So far no go.
Damn Stevie Y is a good looking Canadian dude.
You know, I watched a video of him recently and thought the exact same thing. NTTAWWT.
This went to WTF to frustrating to infuriating to funny, but it's rounding back again to WTF again. Seriously, I gotta get to bed.
Harper is going to write a hockey book about the Olympic Hockey team announcment
This joint is just as much FHFun sober.
This time I get to be the drunk one!
whose you callin sober
Seriously, I watched the FIFA Mandela tribute/group picks for the World Cup and it was faster than this.
At least Stevie is adding some original content
Howie Meeker is going to announce the anouncers
Bowie Meeker is still alive??.!!! I went to his hockey school back in the 70's. I gotta hand it to him - he taught me how to skate! He was a dick, don't get me wrong...but he did know his shit. Stick handling, skating and passing formed the key points of a two week course somewhere in the Eastern townships in the middle of July 197??
PFK!!!!!!!Eat it TSN
PFK PKF PFK
Love the real fans cheering for PFK! Says a lot!
Liking these picks. Benn and Bergeron. Nice.
Fuck Jeff Carter
So we can cancel the planned riot, right?
Don't be silly.
only if he plays both PK and PP
How long until we have a forward on our Olympic team
Hand it to TSN, PK is front and center on their page.
About time he gets respect - and in his Team Canada Jersey.
Fuck off Lisa Rat
Made in China?
at least there not blue like last time
Really, really like Nash. Really. But....no. No St. Louis?
I like Nash too. 4 years ago
Truth. Just don't want to bash the guy in general, but he's not what he used to be.
I'm telling you Rick Nash has pix of Stevie Y in an uncompromising position
Oddest pick for me. mclame won't shut up about him.
PFK and Tavares on tsn main page.Love how PFK got a louder cheer than Sid.
Now to older news (catching up), FUCK! gCHuck has a broken hand?!
Happened last night.
At least the good news is that 3 of the lost 6 weeks will be NHL hockey-free
Get well gCHuk.
no big deal he has been playing the last ten games with a broken winger
The complete Russian roster is as follows:Goalkeepers: Sergei Bobrovsky, Semyon Varlamov, Alexander Yeryomenko.Defenders: Anton Belov, Alexei Emelin, Andrei Markov, Evgeny Medvedev, Nikita Nikitin, Ilya Nikulin, Fedor Tyutin, Slava Voynov.Forwards: Artem Anisimov, Pavel Datsyuk, Denis Kokarev, Ilya Kovalchuk, Nikolai Kulemin, Evgeni Malkin, Valeri Nichushkin, Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Popov, Alexander Radulov, Sergei Soin, Vladimir Tarasenko, Alexei Tereshenko, Viktor Tikhonov.
leaf got an Olympian in Kulman
we should sign big and little tits and Radulov for the playoffs
ke$$eltracker & jvr
Jesus Christ, 130am. Time for bed. Jetlag is killing me. Night kids.
try medical marijuania
Ok, one last post. The only thing more boring than a hockey player interview is a former hockey player interview about hockey. Dudes, Stevies not going to give you anything but standard vanilla answers. Everyone's great, everyone's special. Let's move on now.
Re: PK Subban - limited minutes my ass. Eat shit and die mediots.
ALL OF THE EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!
Nice try with the Subban 'turn-over' video - didn't work now va chier!
NHL.com has DDD's goal last night on the highlight reel.
Wow maybe I have been selling DDD short! Seriously very glad happy to see him have success.
Jessica Rusnak is taller than DD, not that I have anything against short people. Just don't want them taking up valuable space on the Habs.
Never liked Bergeron. Besides being a fucking stoopid broon, the first time he played against the Habs a reporter asked him if he was a Habs fan growing up. PB replied, "No, I was a Dicks fan, I hated Montreal." Well, fuck you Patricia. They got him on SNet right now, I hit the mute button, he's got nothing I want to hear.
The Montreal Canadiens will have players representing Canada at the Olympics for the first time since Mark Recchi and Shayne Corson donned the Maple Leaf at the 1998 Games in Nagano. Reigning Norris Trophy winner P.K. Subban and three-time All-Star Carey Price both received calls from Team Canada’s brass on Tuesday morning informing them that they had been named to the 25-man roster heading to Sochi. Both have previously skated for Canada internationally;Subban won back-to-back gold medals at the World Juniors in 2008 and 2009 and participated in Canada’s final game at the 2013 World Championships last spring. Price is also the proud owner of a World Junior gold medal, having led Team Canada to the top of the podium in Sweden in 2007.Subban is third among all NHL defensemen in 2013-14 with 33 points in 44 games so far this year, also boasting a stellar plus-14 differential. The four-year NHL veteran is second in the league behind only Duncan Keith for power play points by a blue-liner, boasting three goals and 12 assists with the man advantage. Currently second behind only Pittsburgh’s Marc-Andre Fleury with 20 wins so far in 2013-14, Price has a .928 save percentage in 35 starts this season to go with two shutouts. His 988 saves to date are also second in the league to Mike Smith’s 1,002. Longtime Habs equipment manager Pierre Gervais and Canadiens director of media relations Dominick Saillant will also join the Canadian contingent at the Olympics in February.
So that answers my question where PK went after the playoffs.
Pierre Gervais and Canadiens director of media relations Dominick Saillan will now address other issues not covered so far at the press conference
Very important public service announcement.
Go Ducks, Go Islanders!Guess what well-rested team plays against a team that played the night before - again, that lost 7-1 last time?
JohnLuTSNMtl: #Habs Markov's classic one-liner form about his Team Russia selection: "I found out on the internet...It's not the same as you (Canadians)."
Budaj will start tomorrow.
Parros is a game time decision.
Heard a bit of Yzerman talking to Duthie, PK beat Seabrook, he said PK fit the role.
PK - was there any ever doubt? Not in this room.Sucks about gCHuk. Time to call up LeBrow?Those guys that missed the cut, I know exactly how you feel. Same as losing 50 bucks. I'm sure the guys that get 2 weeks off to go tan on the beach someplace south for at least half of it will get over it.
Saku Koivu declined his invitation to Sochi.
He Knows, Saudi;s are planning to use their Chechen puppets to strike a Putin over Syria.
How could there have been any doubtThe Toronto native has a solid international resume, having captured back-to-back gold medals at the 2008 and 2009 World Junior Championship, including a berth in the tournament All-Star Team in his second stint with three goals and nine points. He's also no stranger to playing on the larger ice surface that will be utilized in Sochi."I played on an Olympic-sized rink in junior for four years with Belleville," he explained. "It changes the game a little bit in terms of how much space and time you have out there."
yep, he spent his junior years on the big ice, I've been telling the haters on TSN for months - they all said he would be lost on international ice, but the jackasses kept repeating the same trash over and over.
That said, Subban had a message for his critics: carry on, you’re helping.“They’re the people who make me better, I hope they keep critiquing and finding things to talk about,” he said.Subban’s first phone call was to his parents – who emigrated to Canada from the Caribbean – although the avalanche of congratulatory texts and voicemails has been overwhelming.“I haven’t really had a chance to answer my phone . . . maybe I’ll just turn it off for now and savour the moment,” he said.The generally stoic Price - whose trademark is laconic calm - said that even if it's not outwardly obvious, he's thrilled to bits to be going to Sochi."I don't even know how to express it, how excited I am. I may not show it physically, but it's overwhelming, I'm just really honoured," he said.Price said his aim is to be Canada's starter, a goal he said is shared by Luongo and Smith."We all want to be the guy," he said.
And the beauty of it all - they're Montreal Canadiens. Go Canada Go!
Sickos on TSN 1st intermission of leaf game: 'now that PK is on the team can we move on? What's the news on his contract?'
Bernier had an assist - against himself lol.
that was a quality gaffe
Boy the Leaf are terrible
Got home from seeing 'The Wolf of Wall Street', turned on the TV which was still dialled into tsn from the AM. Couldn't stop laughing at the tsners praising Tim Gleason's game and showing 4 separate plays of him handling the puck in his own zone with slobbering kudos on each one.Love the movie BTW. I'd give it a solid 8.5. DiCaprio is awesome. Also, Margot Robbie is simply scrumptious. The entrance she makes into the first bedroom scene left a big portion of the theatre audience literally gasping.
the wolf not out in DVD quality yet. Ms Robbie is also a supporting actor in About Time. A nice Chick Flick.
Moeman you are to be stranded on a desert Island, but you can choose one of two companions based solely on physical attraction, no personality attributes considered.Jennifer Lawrence form American Hustle Margot Robbie from WolfI have not seen Wolf but Ms Robbie is an easy choice for me
Not a fair question but Ms. Robbie has revealed more of her assets and her real life accent is crazy sexy so;http://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/arts-video/video-margot-robbie-bares-all-for-wolf-of-wall-st/article16234450/
My better half is half pure Irish, and I can see the Irish in Ms Robbie. She is one of those women who will be better looking at forty than twenty as impossible as it seems
I was in OZ for a few weeks in the nineties, general consensus at that time was a women would be consider a man a real catCHif he did not puke on her some time during the first date.
I'd like to thank all FHFers for making this Go Canada Go thread pure Gold!
5-3 NYI NYI played last night, didn't get to their hotel in toronta till 3am. leaf had 5 pp to 1 for the Islanders.If Carolina wasn't postponed for weather and they won, the would have take the leaf wildcard spot.
Gleason was a -2. Prince$$ a -3.
Toews was the '13th' forward in 2010. He ended up on the top line and best scorer for Canada. Mediots can flap their fucking gums all they want, PFK is a Top 4 Dman.
Right on man!
TSN whining that the Isle guy should have had a penalty on a trip that led to a goal. If you look closely at the replay (or not closely at all, like me the first time) you see the Isle's stick is above his head with the leaf goes down. How could he have been tripping him with it? They start to whine about the trapazoid. Christ guys, give it up. Your leaf are bad. Very bad. Three pathetic goals against Bernier tonight. Yeah, he should have gone to Sochi....morons.
Good thing the leaf is in it's "soft" part of the schedule, according to heely and the rest of the cockroaches. That so-called "Winter Classic" might be the last win for "Canada's team" for a while. Go Captain Kirk!
TSN sucks, leaf suck, plain and simple. Even if the 'trip' was called, that doesn't erase Bernier giving the puck away for a goal, prince$$ scoring on his own net, having 5-1 PP, not being able to score with Bernier pulled. Will TSN ever tell the truth about the leaf? We all know the answer to that.
Pearl Harbour, Roswell, the Gulf of Tolkien, JFK assassination, Dessert Storm, 911 and the truth about the leaf. Some have and all will be revealed in time. Especially the leaf, hiding in plain sight is they have not had a competitive team in almost a half century. Thus proving its hard to tell the truth when your livelihood depends upon supporting lies.
Tampa won and passed us again, broons lost their game. Looking for a Habs win tonight.
Tough to win in Philthy.
maybe we can trade for the non Olympian Giroux at a discount.
So they just can't LEAVE PFK ALONE can those TSN hacks. Now they have a story going about his contract.Fuck off.
