  5. "As if the hiring of Chris Pronger wasn't enough, the league has reached out to former New Jersey Devils defenseman Scott Stevens about a job as part of Stephane Quintal's disciplinary team, according Bob McKenzie of TSN."

  17. I just wanted to say the Hockey Game TV channel game that Steve posted yesterday was hilarious. What really brought home the "But it's in Punjabi!" line was Rick Mercer's delivery. The guy's hilarious. "It really is a musical language..."

    Hilarious.

  19. Mmmmmmmm...that prime rib melt from Subway looks good. Hope we get to try it over here. They just got egg salad and I watched in horror the last time I went as Korean after Korean got it all dressed. Yes, jalopenos, olives, BBQ sauce and honey mustard on egg salad. They have no idea what good food is here.

    God I'm hungry. Been going on candy all day.

  23. They seem very hesitant to shoot the puck at the net and sometimes even not sure who to pass it to.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's like they've been told they will be docked pay for each shot they take on the PP. They look absolutely scared to shoot it. And then they're so out of practice when they do take a shot they either flub it or miss the net by 10 feet.

  27. They just won't shoot it.

  28. Best bet would be to decline any future PPs. At this point, there's a better chance they'll score when on the PK.

    ReplyDelete

    1. They do have more SH goals in the last 3 games than PP goals. That is actually true.

  59. Wow. Just wow. SN is worse than HNIC. For those not watching:

    After talking about how the Nuck goal was the best of the season, with an aside, "Where was the defence?!" because they're fucking idiots, this exchange happened.

    "Well, the problem with two Canadian teams playing is that in Vancouver the headline will be 'Great Goal' but the headline in Montreal will be, "Where was the penalty?"

    "Well, it was close. It's hard to say if it was shoulder to chest or shoulder to the head,"

    "Even then, was it a late hit? If so it should have been a penalty"

    "Yeah, it's hard to say,"

    "Well, I think it was a la-----"

    Music plays, cuts to commercial.

  61. Not sure what pisses me off more, the fact that the play wasn't called dead, or the fact that no Hab stepped up to Burrows. Listen guys, the refs are never going to do you any favours. If you don't at least stand up for your teammates you'll continue to get walked all over.

    1. It's very frustrating. Wings got fucking robbed, Holtby fell with absolutely no one remotely near him, they score, the fucking ref calls a penalty for goalie interference, teh goal waved off by another zebra.

    1. That's when I knew they lost. Refs weren't going to let the Habs win. I know that sounds like crazy homer BS, but we've seen enough proof on this trip. It's not just one or two calls. It's almost every call, and it's only going one way. Just frustrated as a fan. What's the point of watching?

      Fuck Bettman and his league.

      Delete
  115. Every Eastern team fan knows their team has to overcome the refs when playing a Western opponent, especially in the West. It's been pretty much general knowledge for the last few years. For some reason the NHL is pushing the West, which is weird since they're much stronger without the help. The officiating on this trip is the worst I've seen over several games in years. Which is saying quite a bit in the NHL.

  118. Happy Halloween everyone - I will take solace in a 3 point Western swing but worrying trends continue clearly. I must watch the game later today before commenting fully - might leave it fro SF...but not having a powerplay is going to come back to haunt them sooner rather than later. From the comments Iread (Thanks O-Man, Juce, Moeman, and a drunk 29!) - the Habs are still spending all their time passing around the puck but not shooting the puck...Someone tell me why!!?? We've all said it a lot - you can't score if you don't shoot. The only perfect shot is the one that goes into the net. So stop trying to find the perfect shot - AND TAKE THE FUCKING SHOT! That's all for now.

    Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!

    OK, I'd like to chime in here despite not watching the game and point out something to my fellow Habs and FHF fans. Reading through the comments it was obvious that some things will never change, the refs will fuck them every chance they get or are completely incompetent and Sportnet's Habs hating broadcast crew will trash them at every opportunity. All that being said, guess who is No. 1 in the whole 30 team bettmanNHL? That's right, our Montreal Canadiens. Read'em and weep mediots, cockroaches and various other vermin who "report" on hockey. Side note: broons No. 16 and leaf No. 24. IAIG.

  120. "We all saw the hit to the head on Emelin and instead of having a power play of five minutes the puck is in your own net," said the coach. "That was a dirty hit to the head."

    He certainly didn't mince words. Good.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Blob Mackenzie says replays weren't very good, he had to view one that he found from RDS which had an ice view which shows there was definitely intitial contact to the head and believes a suspension will be handed out. Good on RDS.
    Cover up from other cockroach broadcasts.
