    1. To me the NFB logo is a classic and (as it should be) iconic. So simple yet identifiable.

      So, um the 1970 TV Ontario logo. It would seem this is where a lot of the cockroaches likely got their start. Was Ben Dover the president of TVO?

      Delete
    2. The NHL logo sucks big time and I am sick of the dickey. If you want to see one of the best logo's not on the list, feast your eyes on the cosmic ZSRDF.

  2. Back to reality tonight. Gonna miss the game as it's monthly poker night (if she'll let me! Ba-dum-bump!) Maybe I'll catch the Express if it's not too late and worth watching.

    TSN Ice Chips for the Habs:

    Alex Galchenyuk (broken right hand) and Travis Moen (LBI) will play Wednesday against Detroit. Peter Budaj will start in goal. - TSN

    Meanwhile the Ice Chips for the wretched leaf is like reading fucking War & Peace. I was going to cut and paste it too, but don't want to soil the good pages of the FHForum.

  3. Screw being classy, If I could get it done in time for Saturday, I would get a slew of ribbons and fashion some knock-off gold medals, put 'em all together then get a small army to hand them out to all the Habs fans going into the game.
    Go Habs Go!

  5. Back to enhanced reality. Is TFS the best goaltender on the planet? Its like asking which is better Austria or Switzerland. Is PFK the best benchwarmer on the planet? Its like asking if Conan Obrien should have been given a better chance. Did Patches, Vodkov and (Y) show their true value at the Olympics? Its like asking if your Honda Civic will get you to work everyday for ten years if you change the oil on time. Yes it will.

    We have now seen that on the big ice with the best players in the world, we should expect a game as exciting as New Jersey VS Montreal. Every team in the NHL is on the bubble. A good coach can put them on the right side of the bubble. Montreal has a genuine shot at the cup this year. All they need to do is play good hockey.

    Back in the saddle.
    For me personally it will be a bit of a step down after watching Team Canada's D.
    I love our heart and soul, really do, but what I would give for a Doughty and Webber.
    His Flashyness doesn't do it for me, and he will certainly be on a personal mission tonight in front of The Babcock.
    I also think we give Vodkov his three years. He has looked good and we have young guys coming up.
    Good young guys. You need a Vodkov in the room for the kids. Don't fuck up now DGMB and don't be cheap with a guy who has done what Vodkov has done.
    K I'm all out of opinions.
    Go Habs.

  7. @mike_p_johnson: Uh oh, Carey Price takes one shot on a 5 on 0 pp warmup and gets up favouring his leg. He left the ice and has not returned for practice.

  13. And in order to discredit anything TFS may have done, the chinless wonder tweets about the cardboard cutout used in practice "@GMillerTSN that thing still may have won gold with Canada". Yeah, because Price did nothing. Douche Canoe.

    @JohnLuTSNMtl: #RedWings Babcock on where is his Gold Medal #McGill tie: "I got a little beer on it, rammed it into a bag (with my suit and shoes)."

    @GinoRedaTSN: Crosby says Carey Price was playing hurt at the Olympics - "I don't think it happened at the Olympics, he's been battling it for a while"

    To play like that while injured is phenomenal, CArey truly is the best goalie in the world.

    We (Hab fans) may just as well accept that anyone who is hired to work for the CBC or TSN are under orders to discredit anybody who is associated with the Montreal Canadiens. I question Sportsnet because one of their head guys (Scott ?) is a big Habs fan and they actually like PK. Moe will never give up the battle but I'm getting too old too fight with the simple minded leaf lovers who use social media to trash the Habs. I've chosen to just ignore them.

    1. Good stuff the M.

      scott moore, now of snet, previously at the cockroach network may claim to be a Habs fan but as an exec he did all he could to promote their leaf over all other Canadian teams and I doubt the Habs will ever have a decent voice at snet. Actually, I prefer the Habs not be shown on that POS excuse for a leaf network.

      Funny that it took TFS getting a Gold medal on an MVP performance and now a lower body injury for these sick fucks to even notice him when a disgusting piece of garbage like kadri is blown in public, swallowed and snowballed (urban dict it) into gaping leaf fan pinholes.

      Delete
    2. Makes one happy that Kadri's father refused to wear the blue and white during the father's trip. Boy did he stick out like a sore thumb.

  17. Team Canada coach Babcock says there's no better feeling than singing our national in the hockey arena in Canada. Will RDS go to commercial and not show it for the umpteenth time? Time for RDS to really pull itself away from the séparatistes at tva and show the fucking anthem, all of it.
