Martin St. Louis has landed in NYC. Get a hattie Marty.
Fans meet Viagra, or I was thinking Viagra pills are blue, so how about Bleue, because I think FHF may be in the language police crosshairs for not having enough french nicknames.
hate to be a downer but lets send our best wishes to Tim Bozonhttp://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatoon/whl-star-tim-bozon-critically-ill-with-meningitis-family-says-1.2561373
I read about that yesterday, I'll say a prayer for him.
Prayers to Bozon and wish you get well.
Get well kid.
Vanek is a broons killer.
I hope she is good looking because Bleue's wife is from Minny and thus his desire to move there. But we have 29, So all he has to do is seduce the wife, she want to stay in Montreal, its a win win.
Vanek will love the European flavour of Montreal. Bievenue a Montreal, Thomas! GHG!!
I've never heard of him but yay! Seriously I haven't. *goes back into cave*
Kate meant *goes back into cellar*
Seriously Moey? I've seen Vanek score lots of nifty goals against the Habs and wish we had somebody with hands like that. Actually, now that I think of it, Vanek may be like l'Artiste from the faceoff circle in, deadly.I sure hope he considers signing with Montreal in the off season, he'd be dynamite with gCHuk feeding him passes. He's got to like some of the talent he's going to playing with and with PK and Price on the backend not to mention Vodkov what's not to like. Can Minnesota even afford him with what they are paying Suter and Parise?
Having Trevor Timmins, one of the best amateur scouting Directors, makes this deal happen.
Burnside http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/id/29467/how-about-those-canadiens-getting-vanek :"The presence of Vanek in the Canadiens lineup has the potential to change the balance of power in the Atlantic Division."Am I excited? Am I getting too high hopes? yes and yes
We got a real shot, if Beledau can make our second unit PP work, plan the parade
So, the Biggest Loser of the day is insidredger, yet that POS just said he'd pick at the carcass of the Vancouver Canucks until Draft day. Stay classy you sick fuck mediot.
Also, second biggest loser of the day = Nonis, the fucking leaf will be lucky if they make the playoffs. He and insidredger can share a crying towel.
I think Vanek will like Montreal...what's not to like!!??
well you can like it TOO much. ask Big and Little Tits
He did break curfew in Sochi, partied till 2:00am.
I spoke with two NHL executives this weekend about Thomas Vanek and whether his blown curfew scandal with Team Austria would impact the Islanders’ plans to move him before the trade deadline. Both said that the episode wouldn’t sour them on the player, but that they would try to use the incident to lighten the pot a bit. New York GM Garth Snow is said to be looking for a first rounder and a second rounder/high-profile prospect in return for the pending UFA winger. If he gets less than that, Vanek’s curfew shenanigans will be one of the reasons why.http://nhl.si.com/2014/02/24/takeaways-from-the-sochi-olympics/
Imagine if the Habs meet the Caps with Jaro in the playoffs. Have they even scored a fucking goal on him since he left? I'm scared!
Boston Killer loose in Montreal
Maritimer, I have a feeling the Caps won't make the playoffs. No worries.Vanek was drafted 5th overall in 2003. Does this make up for the Tits debacle being picked 10th overall ahead of all those big names?
I like this comment by a fellow Maritimer over at HI/O >TSN is hilariousThey will not deal with their favorite team doing nothing to address one of the worst 6 man D units in the NHL, and almost refuse to acknowledge the Habs steal of the day for Vanek.I noticed that at well when the insiders were announcing it, the Habs scooped up the biggest fish in the pond and all the fucking leaf fans/mediots were in disbelief. Sick fucks. The only one who thought it was a big deal was Ferraro.
Lebrun was good. blob and his fat tongue couldn't decide.
Yes, I forgot about LeBrun, he thought it was a coup by Bergevin and may have changed the balance of power in the east. Blob and dredger were choking on their blue and white spit.
The funniest part was seeing how angered insidredger was being caught in his web of lies and doubling down on attacking the Canuck 'carcass'. Sick fuck slime ball.
Saw Vanek's interview. He 'said' he was excited, but he sure didn't sound excited. But maybe he's just not an excitable boy (Warren Zevon ref.)As for a nick name, he's Austrian and the only Austrians I know are Arnie and Hitler...and the Sound of Music bunch. eMpTy will have him playing the von Trap system in no time. nic options... von Trap. TeeVee. Mark Langston.
I guess Boston fans are freaking over the Vanek deal, saying Charelli dropped the ball. Sweet!
I like Von Trap which made me think of lartiste, so another option is to call him KlimtIn defence of Austria which I consider to be the greatest country in the world, and my second favorite country, when Hitler was in Austria he was only a bad painter.
I hope the Toker doesn't get lit up by the Ducks tonight. I going to try and watch the first period and pvr the rest.
I got a feeling the team is going to be on fire tonite. Danny Beer sees his chance to cement himself as third line center. That would be a huge mistake because he can play wing whereas Lego is hopeless there. Hopefullly a night in the pressbox can get Lego head out of his ass.
I cant believe we won trade deadline day. I can never remember such an event. Even if Von Trap ends up being a rental its still a great move by DGMB and he deserves a big golf clap.
Clap...clap...clap....Well done MB, you fucked over Boston and the leaf stood around looking stoopid.
a picture is worth a thousand words, Dobbie Dobbie Do!http://allhabs.net/devan-dubnyk-acquired-by-habs-from-nashville-assigned-to-hamilton/
So, ... descriptive, short, FHFun, easy to type = Von, VonT, TV, Hans ?What say you FHFers?Bonus will be typing Vee Von!
Could someone poke me in a couple of hours? Just drifting off on the couch now. thx.
Put your iPhone on vibrate.
I like this trade! I was secretly hoping the Habs would scoop up Vanek somehow. Habs need scoring, Vanek is a scorer. Didn't give up too much, either. I'm not used to this feeling. Is it...is it "optimism"? No, not that far. Less pessimism? Yes. That's it. Less pessimism.
Also love these West coast starts! The games start around my lunch time at work, and my afternoons are usually less busy than mornings so I can watch it more closely. Of course I have that gamecenter thing now, so I can watch the games any time! Like last Sunday, not having to wake up at 8am is so nice. So so nice.
Wow, just reading through the trades. Lots of action today, much more than years past. St Louis to the Rangers? Is there bad blood between him and Stevie Y now? I'm actually pretty busy at work today/this week/this month (something about taking 2 months holidays), but this is all very intriguing.
I'm dying with laughter......here's a post from the leaf network."I think I will personally blow him so he resigns here"
GO HABS GO!!!!!!!!!!
NYR are playing like the leaf ugh.
Kicked in by prince$$ lol.
NYR SHG!!!! tied at 2.
i am awake and i just watched the Leaf blow a 2-0 lead to the Rangers. giidyup
Is it to early to start worrying about playing Bishop in the playoffs, its impossible to score on him.
I thought we were worrying about Jaro in the playoffs?
We might as well just tank
Fuckin leaf, kings of the loser point
loser point has to go, maybe it should be a half point?
ack Leaf win
Crap. If lumberjack was penalized for tucking is shirt, surely NYR would have had another SHG. ORA
eMTy says no VonT on the pp until he proves himself to be a good teamate. I am not worried about that cause if its one thing I do its make good teamates. Mostly its players that are so glad to play for another team that I am not coaching.
JESUS FUCKING CHRISTFire eMpTy already. that's pathetic. HE'S YOUR LEADING GOAL SCORER
Let's really hope that's next on DGMB's list.
one of my favourite tweets today was from Ted Bird. He said something like "Therrien is happy to have Vanek here, looking forward to making him the Selke trophy winner"
29 do not blow a gasket, consider the source:)
GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!!
Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker!
Okay, so I don't know every fucking player in the NHL but I'm still happy because y'all are. So here we go...
meh Moey not to worry I can barely keep track of who's on our own team FFS. Weise? He's a Hab? Sounds like a nice Jewish cousin of mine
And not to mention now I'm faced with a dilemma, if we're going to be as good as they say we are does that mean a Duck vs Habs final? Noooooo! My tortured soul, excuse me while I go and find a tree with a sturdy branch.
I'm a pickerI'm a grinnerI'm a loverI'm a sinnerI play my music in the Suuuuunnn....I'm a JokerI'm a smokerI'm a midnight TOKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!C'mon midnight TOKER!!!!!!
I'm really confused. You go out and get a backup goalie, and then send him to Hamilton and start your young goalie anyway? The fuck?
Puck drop! C'mon boys I don't know how long I can stay awake!
Hang on boys! I'll try to make it through the first.C'mon Toker, smoke some duck.
He's hot in the box/ these Toker jokes write themselves
That's not nice George, beating up on your old teammates
I hold my breath for Parros. Fucking refs give him an instigator.
For years the Habs got pummeled by thug teams with no calls. They get a fighter and now suddenly the instigator penalty gets handed out all the time.
They just changed it to 'unsportman'
Every time Marchand is sent on the ice there should be an unsportsman call.
Toker looks nervous in there. He should smoke a bowl
Would you like some mustard with that hot dog?
GIant and the run to the cup is on
Shots 7-0, let's keep it that way.GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!!
"#76 for having the audacity for being black in the NHL."Seriously, I haven't seen the replay, but does any former Norris winner get as much hassle? Actually, never mind Norris winner.
That was bogus even on the replay.
Toker is toking!!!!
Man that DDD can dish the puck
And who's there falling over the goalie? Gkid, that's who.
Cash it, boys!!
eMpTy's thoughts: "VonT will hurt this chemistry. I'll just put him on the 4th line, give him 6 minutes of ice time"
How Vanek is treated will be a big test for eMpTy. Unfortunately, as long as the Habs are in the playoffs his job is likely safe.
Toker is both in the groove and grooving
pad save Toker! as steve says, he's totally grooving
Nice ovation for Parros.
VonT can play either wing, so why not put him with DDD and Patches and reunite the EGG line. Then you could have the GiantBeerPlex line and the WMW line. Why not? OH yeah, coachless eMpTy.
he's going to ruin VonT before he even plays
Gio doesn't want to give up his top 6 status so easy
oh Danny B, you can't shove your stick up a guy's crotCH
Toker's wife and baby travelled with the club and are waiting in the dressing room
You kill me!
I'm here all night! Wait...no...actually I'm sadly off to bed as midnight approaches. Stupid work.
2-0 after 1. the VonT era is off to a good start and he's not even playing!
That was Perry's 2nd slash, refs did nothing the first time - he's white.
Toker the only goalie in the NHL with headphones built into his mask
PFK will hook him up beats custom fitted under his helmet.
GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!! GYMFHG!!Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker!
Some people call him Maurice.
2 things. I should be in bed. Parros (god love him) should be too.
That's gonna harsh Maurrrice's mellow. g'night.
Should we make it to 200 comments, there's heavenly hash for everyone.
WTF is with the penalties, that's 5 now.
Ok, relax refs. The Ducks don't need that much help.
Palmeri hooks PatCHes and no fucking call.
And they stop us from a possible (likely) SHG and now it costs us a goal against. FUCK OFF REFS
Again no call, we lost our stick FFS!! This is so blatant,.
There's something about the California/Florida sun that makes the refs see funny. Or it's Buttman's continued desperate attempt to create a strong hockey market in the south.
And with the leaf win, even more important to hold the habs back.
Rooney born in Boston, surprise?
Ducks are bogarting the goals.
Gkid!! and the fucking refs will rob him of it.
Do it again KidG we'll still call it a hattie anyway.
Ok, it's over his shoulders. But gKid is also only 4'5".
Ok Habs, put it in the bank.
I'm sure that was in, 2 habs celeb and the ref says no?
I literally don't understand how that didn't go in. Thrice.
I want to see the replay.
Ok it didn't go in.
No replay on the close call(s)
Ducks completely allowed to hold onto sticks. But Habs better not get too close to any of them.
Perry hold Tinordi's stick and no call. Didn't see what RBQ did yet, but if a Hab breaths to hard, they get slapped with a penalty. Enough already.
A penalty on the Habs.....but it was the Hab that fell and didn't get the puck. Oh, refs. You're not even trying anymore, are you?
Zebras are really dictating the game.
Jesus, it's even more ridiculous on replay. No lifting sticks now.
TSN: "I'm surprised we didn't get more backlash from Therrien on that call". Welcome to our hell.
So I find it kind of hilarious that "Fowler" plays for the "Ducks".
PleXXXE almost cashed that on an impossible angle, seen him do that before.
OT, Gio almost ended it in reg.
This is new, gCHyuk and KidG in OT.
SO, big one for Toker.Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker! Go Toker!
I haven't seen that much unpunished hooking since my last walk through St. Laurent/St. Catherines.
You're killing me.
First SO in the NHL for Toker.
Doesn't seem to cross the line, well it's up to Toronto now.
It seems to pivot along the line, then Toker clears it.
Do it PleXXXE GO!!
Hugh kudos to Toker!
Vodkov! First star Toker!
There's a Habs fan where they exit just tugging his logo like a madman.
What a first game in the NHL. 6 round shootout win over the best team in the league. One to tell the grandkids. If his short term memory serves him right, anyway.
Bonsoir kidz. Gotta get up in less than 5 hours!
Tokka was a monster for us tonight.http://content6.flixster.com/photo/10/68/83/10688356_gal.jpg
Habs beat the top team in the NHL with their AHL goalie in spite of the refs. Hats off to you boys!
Also nice to see coachless use some different kids in the shootout and in OT. Maybe he's celebrating the Vanek trade.
Thanks moeman and goodnight everyone.
Good night guys. Almost done work! Or should I say "work". Ah, it'll all get done eventually.
Habs game ends hours after the leaf, yet it still plays second fiddle (actually third behind "trade day" stuff). Do we need to wonder what would be the order if the leaf lost? It'd be buried on the MLS page.
A 3 am start meant I was never going to watch this one live...but now I will have to check it out on Gamecentre. Sounds like the Habs played a decent game...the refs screwed the Habs over ONCE AGAIN! and that until further notice Vanek shall be known as VonT. I will report back later!
And Toker gets his first win! What a great nickname. Overall I think the Habs are in a great position when it comes to goalies.
And lastly...for now at least...when did the NHL move to this ridiculous method of describing an injury "Upper Body" or "Lower Body" injury? WTF is wrong with saying "He broke his arm" or "he pulled a groin muscle"...Because I still don't have a fucking clue what is wrong with TFS. Did he blow his knee out? Is his hamstring torn? Sore foot? WTF?? Why can't they just say what is wrong? Is that a state secret now?
Where's my heavenly hash Moeman?? I took us over the line Goddammit! Don't you go bogarting the Heavenly Hash dude!!
so what'd I miss?
Must find coffee now:http://fourhockeyfans.blogspot.ca/2014/03/technically-it-counts-over-200-comments.html
