Well-known Habs fan Srrombo to take mclame's spot?
I would have prefered a pretty girl who was a Habs fan. Fuck Rodgter they are going to put hockey behind a paywall.
And bettman screws Canadians once again.
Fuck and Yes!Finally, after years of leaf blowing HNIC gets a true Habs fan as the main host. My guess is Strombo will be much more professional than leaf cheerleader mclame and actually show an unbiased attitude. Cherry and his puppet can have their 7 minute segment and I can hit the mute button.Finally, shove moron bjsuck into one of those irrelevant strategy rooms that no one watches with the equally irrelevent Jeff Marek and send David "here are YOUR toronto maple leafs" Amber there too, and they can all suck leaf dick together in private.
do not get your hopes up, he he holds the gold makes the rules, not Strombo
Habs fan Scott Moore (I know moe) probably had something to do with this hire. He wanted some back-up.
At least I get the games an hour earlier for a couple of weeks!
SPOILER ALERT - COACH RANT - SO I have a had a (non-rain filled) weekend to think about a couple of things. You guys must be sick to death of me banging on about the coach...but I can't help myself - he is seriously one big obstacle on the road to success. And he's curdling players who should be rising to the top right about now. Lego started the year with a fresh approach - now he smells of old cheese and feet. Part of that is his own fault - the rest is down to the coach. A decent coach would have recognised that he needed (A, B, C +) and sorted hi out in order to get the best out of him. The coach has spent too much time worrying about who isn't scoring and ignored the guys who are scoring. I know that the coach can't get out there and skate for them all - and when they don't skate they are doomed - but he can motivate them to skate - and he doesn't do that. Gally busts his ass every night and is getting his rewards in spite of the coach. But he still only gets - what - 15 minutes a night - Patches leads the team in goals but rarely breaks 20 minutes night. 8, 9, 10, 12 goal scores are logging way more minutes - and to what end?...The power play is easy to defend against because it is set up by the coach with the same people every game - I love PFK but his shot is worth shit if it doesn't get through - and mre often than not it doesn't because the teams are wise to what comes next. A 4th forward on the PP is not always a liability. It's safer to have 3 +2 but given that almost no one scores less on 5on 5 than the Habs, they should be looking for every advantage they can get.The coach is eating his young and when contract time comes 'round, his young will flee to the hills - where they can roam and play and score goals - sometimes that will let someone past them, but in general they won't fear being nailed to the bench for playing the game they love the way they know best .Something has got to change...and quickly!!
Righteous rant, KmaXXX.
you rant so we do not have to. eMTy is killing this team. He is not bad enough to fire and not good enough to win. So DBMB has to do the righteous thing. Fire his ass, take a chance on Boucher. If we are going to lose games, lets lose with our balls to the walls.
eMTy is old school, just like Chokula was. Patrick Roy is playing Nathan MacKinnon at center as is Bob Hartley with Sean Monahan and they are doing OK, in MacKinnon's case he is thriving. Where does eMTy have Galchenyuk playing? Left wing....nooooo, he's not good enough to play center in the NHL yet, he might make a mistake and I may miss the playoffs and cost Mr. Molson two home gates. Nope, it's all about Davey and me, Eller and Galchenyuk can rot.
Fuckin ay. Nice rant.After watching The Limpicks I would like the Habs to hire Babcock.I find us to be so predictable.Dump and chase, back and forth on the boards.Nobody in front. Tra la la.Nothing fresh, nothing different.Go Habs
And any chance of re-signing Von T will be gone as "we give him time to find a comfort level with PleXXXe and Gionta." Or, hey you could fucking play him will young studs Eller and Galchenyuk and see how that works! You know, fucking offensive minded players. For your newly acquired top fucking scorer to play with. jeezus!
All the HR departments in the world will tell you the same thing, very hard to sign someone invisible. That has to be the worst debut since Tom Green exposed his talent to Drew Barrymore.
Regarding the Strombo deal, it's fucking hilarious (and yet sad because they don't see the irony) the hand wringing and absolute horror that there might be a Habs fan leading HNIC. It's just not right! Fucking kill me now. Did I read somewhere that the head of Rogers is actually a Habs fan?
It's now official that Strombo will host hnic. http://www.bramptonguardian.com/news-story/4405120-stroumboulopoulos-to-host-hnic-/suck it leafs.
Montreal Canadiens defenceman Josh Gorges underwent successful surgery Monday morning to repair a fracture in his left hand.Gorges is expected to miss the next four weeks of action.
Sports Net kept McLaime and The National Embarrassment.They were slobbering all over them.I ... sigh ... dared to hope.Go Habs.
Hey! If Mr. Peladeau along with the PQ succeeds in creating the new country of Quebec, how is he going to pay Gary and the owners for his new Nor-dicks? Made in Quebec francs? Or, maybe they will become the 51st state? Sacre bleu! What a scheme!
The book on Karl as I see it is he was born on third base. He is running for a pop up fly and falls on his face. This guy is so out of touch with reality it will be super to watch. He is Rob Ford without crack or peeing in the park. Believe me now and I tell you later his character is going to be explosive.There is no way Quebcor or any of its arms should get one ore cent of Federalist Government Money for advertising, hockey teams, etc as long as it lines Karls pockets. In a real sense that is funding the separation of Canada.Has anyone considered this is a billionaire tired of lashing out at hired help and just want to take it to the next level? He is logical thinking, because the electorate puts up with way more than a hired employee. Bottom line Dear Leader, this is your Guy, fetted felt and not quite there for the Orgasam of a New Norquie in Quebec city.So the conservatives are in bed with the separatist cause they have written off Quebec. Thats a national unity platform only Preston Manning could love.I cant speak French, I have had no relations with Quebec since I kicked the glass out ofthe old fourm before an English concert of David Bowie,What the spinmasters want you to see is howyour tribe is relevant with the QuebecosyEven if you ask this question your stupid.Diversity, some other viewsome look at lifethat is not anglo saxonbelief in good govermentby individualsMany flaw in QuebecMany flaw in CanadaBind these flaws to create some kind ofEuropean synergyAre our kids to stupidto speak bilingualyIn Europe every kidspeaks English and likely a third laungueaperfectlyI hope Quebec never leavesbut now I have to admitwith rednecks in the leadits a possiblity.And will they not be so proudat taking what used to be oneof the greatest nations in the worlddown/
Some great comments and rants today.Get well Josh.Go Strombo!
Who is this hack Dave Bidini??'Ho hum, Strombo's not really the guy, he won't ask the 'pertinent' questions, I know him, so I'm not really the one to critique'They why are you, you hack? I loved it when Melnick said 'oh, I get it, he's a Habs fan'. RIGHTMelnick also spoke the truth when he said post interview with this hack is that hnic is know to be biased and pro leaf.
Ex of the Rheostatics. Tranna-area leaf fan. Thinks he knows hockey. He doesn't, he's a leaf fan.
I dont know Strombo. I know he is best buddies with Jim Richards of CFRB. This speaks to his character. At the end of the day I expect it was a decision between him and Ben Mulroney. They are going to ask the consumer to take a fee up the asp for better service. In reality we just wanted to see hockey. We turn off the volume and put on Itunes to escape Bob Cold. When Hockey Night in Canada goes behind a pay wall as cool as George is, he will just be a well paid face on the new fascist wall.
hashtag get angry you motherfuckers
People need to realize that 4 of the 5 snet hockey media announced are leaf fans. The same four have been in the 'industry' for many decades. Strombo has as much professional, integrity-based hockey creed going in as these leaf suckers have combined. I am enjoying all the hate Strombo has received from the known idiots, namely leaf fan fearing and freaking because their mouthpieces are being somewhat shut. Imagine sticking up for xenophobia and racism and bigotry and bias and well you get my point.Good luck Strombo!
I predict your going to be as dissapointed as a porn star who self converts meters to inches.
The 20% of Habs integrity we get from George will be a welcome relief. I just hope they hire somebody with knowledge of the Habs and their history to call the Canadiens games. Bob Cold needs to be exiled back to Newfoundland where he can watch his beloved leaf a safe distance from the Bell Centre.
Hughson, Simpson, Amber and Heely are unabashed leaf fans, it's all they talk about during the game with all eyes on Kessel, followed by caveman Princess Pylon and Bernier. When they open the show, the first words out of their mouths are what the leaf has to do to win. bjsuck calls them the "boys". Does the CBC not realize there are fans of other teams across this great nation outside the GTA? The producers of HNIC should read this blog just for a reality check.There, I said that in the nicest way possible.
Thx for the compliment the M.For all the whining and Depends-wrteching by stupid leaf fans, do they realize Strombo will not be hosting many Habs games? Its still going to be all leaf all the time with less/no cheerleading from the ost. How they defend a leeching moron like mclame and a POS like cherry is beyond me, oh wait, they've been fed this shit for decades on end and they love it. Hughson I can handle as he is a by the book/contract dweep, the others are just sick fuck cockroaches and they know it.
Always had time for Hughson - the rest are leaf lovers - fuck 'em! Don't know Strombo but any Habs dan gets my support.
He and PFK get along great.
juce, who doesn't PFK get along with? <-- loaded question!!!
Bettman and for some reason THE WHOLE HOCKEY UNIVERSE. Off ice though, Everybody Loves Pk.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fK92hdp6u18
I don't who this is, but I don't see any Habs here.https://twitter.com/TravisHeHateMe/status/443105356340682752/photo/1
No surprise intent-to-injure kadri is there.
Despte being an ex-Hab, so fucking tired of seeing fuckface bettman puppet glen sather talking about changing or not changing the game.
Heh, as the smug-faced insidredger yipped more fucking inanities a bunch of black crows hovered as even they smelled his constantly wavering bullshit.
Well the tsn scumbags prove their worth, again. Their biggest concern about Josh's hand injury/surgery is that it happened vs. their leaf. They gave it 30 seconds, half of it was yipping and showing leaf video.
Gee and I missed it. I feel so bad. Not.
Just got in but WTH? TH? 3-1 leafs officialy take 2nd in the division? HOW IS IT POSSIBLE - IT'S NOT OVER? IT'S ONLY END OF 2ND - Oh, yeah, it's ToronotSuckleanfnutsNetwork!
Premature leaf ejaculation....
Ugh, I got myself started up-thread and am totally into ELP and re-living the days. BTW Is Toker starting vs broons? lol
Yet again the leaf are being completely outplayed and outshot but somehow leading the game. It's not over yet, but they'll get slaughtered in the rest of their road trip. Wonder if the media will say the Ducks were tired or uninterested, as they said about them losing to the Habs both times this year.
Anyway, hope Peverley is ok. From reports, it seems like he's in stable condition now, but I hope it's not going to end his career. As for Strombo, it's amazing the outrage and shock the GTA media have over a Habs fan having a role in HNIC. The Toronto Sun ran contrasting profiles of him and McLean, listing Strombo as a Hab fan, while Ronnie's favourite team was "Unknown". Are you serious? It's the same when a call on the ice (or god forbid the War Room) doesn't go their way. They're so used to things being handed to them they honestly don't understand what "fair" means.
Whoa, the Islanders score seven (7!) goals in the third against the Nucks (who also scored one).
Wishing all the best to Peverly, Scary thing to happen.
Bad news from the practice, it ended in a shutout for both sides.
some good stuff herehttp://www.habseyesontheprize.com/2014/3/11/5490746/gallys-grin-bruins-senators-sabres-suck
Practice is over, eMTy in a true to form move created this great line VonT Superplexxxe and Giant Only eMTy would take a pure goalscorer and put him on the shutdown line, no one else would think of doing that.
Are you kidding? Chokula would do that in an instant. In fact, I'm not sure that's not the Count behind the bench disguised as eMTy.
If that is what the coach us thinking...putting a trade deadline sniper on a PK line...THEN I REST MY FUCKING CASE!
Looks like Cube will play tomorrow.
I don't think that anything short of a deep playoff run with save MT2.0.I know he speaks French and everything but ....There is a little more to it than just depending on luck.Go Habs
If anything DGMB has said since he was hired is to believed ever again, then he absolutely must get rid of the coach he hired. Slowly but surely the team has morphed back to what is was before he took over. The coach doesn't answer any difficult presser questions, no one tells you what injuries the players actually have and the Habs are playing the worst kind of fucking shit hockey - no imagination, no creativity and the best players being mismanaged by a coach using an out of date formula that bears no resemblance to the modern game.he should have gone during the Olympics because nothing has really changed
The rescheduled game for DAL / CBJ will leave the score as it was 1-0.
Since winter won't fuck off and go away, I worked on a little project this afternoon - I created a file of all the Habs games I attended over the years beginning in 1985 up to my last one in Oct. 2012. My record: 7W 7L 1T. Gotta work on that.
Terry Trafford of Toronto, a centre for the OHL club, was last seen leaving Wendler Arena in Saginaw, Mich., around 9:30 a.m. on March 3@tsnscottcullen: RT @sunayas: Michigan State Police confirm car matching Terry Trafford's containing an unidentified male body has been found in Saginaw toPrayers to all..

RBQ will be in the press box tomorrow.
Very sad, R.I.P.Global News Toronto tweeted that Trafford’s father confirmed the body of his son had been found.
Sad indeed. RIP.
PJ Stuck says the reason VonT was so cheap is because he's not a skater, the other teams went for Moulson etc.. STFU! 1 on the panel told him you say that because your team in Toronto didn't get him.
Just catching some hilites before hitting the hay. 2-1 Sharks plus 2 Shark goals called back. That's all.Also saw Von T interview after his practice sounding oh so thrilled about playing on the shutdown line "because I'm such a defensive specialist" he said, with a brialliant sarcastic tone.
