  4. Polls show PLQ @ 40%, PQ@ 33%. Dr. Phil challenges party leaders to make public their & their spouses tax return and (financial) assets, he will do so for both him and Mrs. Coulliard.
    Marois says she already provided it to (I forget which gov't body, but that is not public) and it's not necessary. Legeault says he will if the other leaders do.

    1. PLQ will pick up a bunch of CAQ seats in the QC region, snag all of Laval, maybe spear the PQ in the balls in St.Jérome and hopefully solidify a majority. Fist-in-the-air Canada hater pkp might have to go back to work for a living.

    At least try to seem somewhat objective guys. Put effort into it. Not in picking the leaf (though he was quick to poo-poo their remaining opponents while waving off the BJ's schedule which has many of the same teams). But dude, you're supposed to be a professional.

  65. PRESS RELEASE

    MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced Wednesday the signing of defenseman Mac Bennett to a two-year, entry level contract (2014-15 and 2015-16).

    In 31 games with the NCAA Big Ten’s University of Michigan in 2013-14, Bennett recorded 14 points (2 goals, 12 assists). He led his team’s defensemen in assists and points. The Wolverines captain served 10 penalty minutes, displayed a +12 differential and was named to the All-Big Ten second team.

    Bennett, 23, accumulated 65 points (14 goals, 51 assists) in 136 games since making his college debut with the Wolverines in 2010-11. The 6’00’’ and 195 lbs defenseman totaled 53 penalty minutes. A product of the USHL’s Cedar Rapids RoughRiders, he was named to the USHL All-Rookie Team in 2009-10.

    A native of Narragansett, Rhode Island, Bennett was selected in the third round, 79th overall by the Canadiens at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

      Seven more years of Princess Pylon eating up $7mil of cap space is a great thing for the rest of the league. That player/contract will be an excellent boat anchor around Nonis' neck along with wendel Clark$on.

      Did insidredger provide any insight into this latest leaf collapse? Of course not, he knows sfa about it. Their fall back position though is to look for "bigger crisis" on other teams like Vancouver and Edmonton. Aaron Ward correctly pointed out that the leaf free fall was indeed the winner. Oh the angst...it's so sweet to see it.

      They did at least mention Montreal in passing as a playoff bound team. Must have been painful.

  74. "We track scoring chances – our team does – and we're out-chancing teams every night" -Joffrey Lupul

    This is the delusion that drives me crazy. From the leaf fans, media, front office and players. This was in particular reference to last night's game against the Blues. They got outshot 49-23, and they actually believe they "outchanced" them. They have the largest shot deficit in the league, they've allowed 50+ shots more than any other team, and they actually believe they are consistently the better team. That's why they always complain about the refs, or blame a goalie for only making 48 saves. They've drank the kool-aid.

The man is hockey smart. He speaks well and his hockey commentary is informed, mostly unbiased and very entertaining. To think douchebag morons like cherry and stock are on the airwaves adds to the sick fuck mentality of the mediots. Thanks Chris.

I don't know if it would do any good, but there should be an organized communication from hockey fans to Rogers that the same shit reporting/play by play/colour isn't acceptable if they're going to televise Habs games. As we've said, we don't need homers to call the games, but we don't want leaf loving Habs haters either ffs. And I for one, think Knuckles would be an excellent colour guy for Habs games, because I agree moe. I've listened to his program 5 or 6 times now and am never disappointed.
