I love me some cakes!GYMFHG!
in the tournament only I care about, HC Davos was just upset 4-3(SO) in semi #1. Canada goes in semi #2 at 2 pm
Not true. I care about this tournament, I've watched it for years, love the wacky ad covered uniforms, ice surface and the wide open mistake prone game. Unlike the ultra structured, rigid, coaching systems buttman NHL. If it wasn't for my love of the Habs I probably wouldn't watch NHL hockey, sticking to the junior game.
Cakes we bought cheap at the free agent Bake Sale! You have to be good to be lucky, but Cakes is one of those historic free agent signings.
GO CANADA GO SPENGLER CUP WOOOOOOO!!!!!!/crickets
GO CANADA GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
that's the spirit juce!
Tommy Pyatt!!! he was a good Habs soldier
p.s. he plays for Geneva not Canada
ack 1-0 Geneva
double ack 2-0
"double ack" sounds like the name for some cheese.
Cube de fromage is Swiss now?
this game s outta control. ugh. at least i don't think i will have to be up at 6 AM tomorrow to watch the final
I can't even keep track any more! 6-5
Sigh. 6-5 final. sorry Canada
See. Crazy stuff, too bad Canada couldn't advance. Geneva has a shit load of Canadian players and the coach as well.
Half the teams in the tourney were loaded with Canadian coaches and players
WTF is going on? tonight we get timmythefuckingpeeler.
Toker gets the start and Carnaval will return to the lineup
All's well in leafool land. Mirtle is trashing them in the G&M today. Love me some leaf schadenfreude.
"It'll be good," Gallant said after the Panthers' optional morning skate. "The coaching staff and the staff over there, I know them real well, and some of the players. Obviously it's nice to see those people back, good people I had a great time with."Classy man.I guess that gives him an advantage.
I'm glad to see "Turk" doing well with the Panthers. Three time QMJHL champion and Memorial Cup winning coach for my Saint John Sea Dogs and a fellow maritimer. If he beats my Habs tonight I won't be holding any grudges.
I am hearing lots of chatter about an obvious trade. Flordia has way to many young skilled centers over 6'5". They need a vetren who is good down low. DDD for Huberdeau straight up. DGMB make it so!
Huberdeau is a left wing. Hey! DDD is now a left wing, that can't be a coincidence.
DINNER THREADStanding at the stove simmering some spicy chili. Drinking Moosehead / pouring Moosehead in the chili
Trying maritime recipes I see.
:)in 1985 as a 16 year old, I spent a week in Saint John for the national finals of Reach for the Top (no seriously, I was on that). The entire week we drank Moosehead as underage drunken high school students, and I've been in love with it ever since.
wait, maybe it was Moncton. It was in NB. I was drunk, it's hard to remember
Cheese, foie gras and baguette. Gin & tonic to go with it.
I am watching the Belk Bowl. If someone can tell me what Belk is, I will come to your house and cook chili
Prosecco and a midnight fire with Mrs. Kmaxxx...might not watch too much hockey tonight...
Chicken wings, ribs.29, I was a sub (aka the 5th) at Genies en Herbes 1978, the Franco-Ontarian version go Geniuses with Herbs, er, Reach for the Top. I met a nice gal named Amicale (from Sudbury), maybe the coolest name I ever heard. She was a spectacular long distance friend and pen pal cuz there wasn't no interwebs then.
Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!!
So now I hear that Manny is in the press box for Bournival (sorry I sometimes can't keep up with nicknames) why the fuck would you remove the league's best face off man for an unproven youngster - albeit one with great potential - the Habs are hardly getting 20 shots a game and ar being out hit every game they play. They need all the possession they can muster. The only pice of the puzzle missing to make the Habs a legit cup contender is a proper coach!
According to Renaud LavoieDon't be surprised by Malhotra being a scratch.Habs coach was thinking about putting him in the stands last week but give him another chance
Coach probably watch AC, they've been pushing for this to get DD to take his place.
I know dd was double shifted a few times last week...makes no sense but thn again this is Therrien we are talking about...fuck!
Good morning! Oh good, Tim Peel.
The crowd CHants Go Habs Go!
CASH IT please
Quick...get DDD on the ice! He isn't getting a look in tonight! We all know this is where he shines!
Wonder what conversation the ref is having with PleXXXe.
PK can't defend WHAT?!
Too lazy to dig out the laptop tonight and the game is blacked out in the UK on game centre - go figure - some am listening to the radio broadcast - haven't listened to the radio for a hockey game in years...I used to listen to dick Irvin years and years ago...no idea who I am listening to...Sergio Mommesso maybe?
Yeah, I think he usually does it now.
Yeah, Momesso and the new guy who replaced Bartlett.
At leastvthey didn't give up a first period goal!
Well, that was a fast paced period.
I don't know who listened to MT's comments after the game yesterday, but he said gCHuck had a 'though game' and when asked about cakeS goal, he said something to the effect of, "Glad to see him break out of his funk". The guy just can't say anything nice about the young guys. Remember after gChuck's hattie? "Glad to see him finally concentrating on the parts of the games I've been teaching him!" Ugh.
Right, he's also the reason PFK was so great and it's because of him that PFK made it to Sochi too.
Why am I not surprised...God help us everyone!
Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!!Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!!
Go Habs go! Go habs go!
You knew the Habs were going to get a penalty after that non-goal.
Vodkov, hope he's OK.
Holding my ass, fuck you.
Too many passes.
Wow. Unbelievable. Tim fucking Peel!
I would swear Chokula is coaching one of these teams tonight. Maybe both of them. At the same time.
I blame it on that fucking CORSI bullshit
Well, I'm not complaining but...
Cash it! Cash it! Cash it!
Vodkov is back!
I know we're going to have to wait another 2 and a half years to see this, but it's be nice if cakeS and Lego could get some PP time.
Toker makes me nervous when he's out of the net.
The crowd CHanting it got me into it, like we were one.
I'm no expert, but I'd say those weak shots from the point aren't working. Maybe, and again I'm not an expert, try something different?
Gallant giving them shit at the bench and MT pats PatCHes on the back.
Listen to that crowd. To think the mediots say only their leaf has fans outside of their home arena.
I always love it how they go out of their way to show the leaf fans in other arenas, often completely overstating their presence, yet completely ignore it for the Habs. Every game in MTL is "Half leaf fans!" which it most certainly is not, but in TOR no mention is made.
#11 scores his 11th
Radio feed is slow...KidG!
Had to wait a second to make sure they weren't going to call it back for some reason. Because KidG
And the building goes nuts!
A FHFun period.
FLA leads in face-offs 28-18. Hasn't hurt, yet as they've been cleaning up post the drop.
In this game...against this team - maybe...but against better teams...it's not like they are getting massive minutes on the 4th line...and that is what a 4th line player does - plays a role and gets limited minutes - any goals they contribute are gravy...or did they not teach that to him...fuckwit!
The Chokula playbook will be in full force now. Five Habs lined up at the blueline and no forechecking past the faceoff dot.
I've been in that building when the Habs are playing there. FHFucking fun!!
Wow, so Denmark gets their first WJHC win ever. In 16 years. Maybe that'll spark Lego?
3 Canadian teams play tonight and tsn features the winter classic problems with glare as main story on the nhl page. Can only mean the leaf aren't playing.
It could only be a winter classic if Habs/Bruins were playing. THAT would be epic. Surprised nobody has thought of that. *rolls eyes*
and that is a glaring problem.
Hey Kate. Rumour has it at Fenway next year. Funny how, of all the outdoor games, the ones featuring the Habs have become the true (modern) classics. Wheres my JTuque!?
I'll knit you one and we can go together. Road trip!
Deal! Will you wear your mink?
I might go with the Russian sable.
Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!!Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!!Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!!
All these mentions of the Barrie Colts. I used to work in that arena when I was in high school. There was a nice restaurant in there (The HorsePower Grill) where I worked in the kitchen for several years. They were pretty good in the 90s, but I haven't seen a game in years. Apparently they're good again.
Ice-level audio is great. Lots of fucking swearing.
Holy fuck! Just checked the box score - the Habs actually had 20 shots in the 2nd period. 20 shots is more than they had in the entire game against the panthers. I am definitely going to listen on the radio more often!
Been searching Kodi in vain for a live stream. Sigh!
Ah shit PAPS, kill it.
Buttman call, Jebus!!
Nice one PAP, you moron. What has he even done in the last 20 games?
Hang on boys!
Nice Kill, Denny Potvin is doing the commentary for Fox and he just put the shutout jinx on Toker.
Seriously...hang on boys!
Shut the Olé up!
I felt they were gonna get one - that fucking ole.
WHY THE FUCK WAS THAT GUY ALL ALONE IN FRONT I SAW THAT A MILE AWAY!!!!!
Are they trying to lose?
Oh for fuck sakes!
No matter how hard the goalies work, the defence never lets them get a SO.
Over fucking time bit he!
Ok, I have to go to work, let's get this over with.
Put DDD on the fucking bench fffs.
And in the third period the Habs get 4 FUCKING SHOTS! I swear to God...someone fucking explain wtf is going on? 20 shots in one period athen 4 with the game in the line! This "system" makes no fucking sense!
Why is DDD in the fucking ice!?
Lets not play Cakes four on 4 Ok!
LOLZ, Patches and DDD are back together. MT just can't help himself.
I saw that...not surprised...
Toker just about gave me heart failure, good thing FLA missed the empty net.
Chilll all part of the plan!
were fucked now
It took over 2 years, but DDD was finally taken off the 1st line. It benefited not only gCHuck, Patches and KidG, but also DDD who scored a 5on5 goal for the first time in 51 games. So what does our genius coach do 5 games late? He puts DDD back with Patches! Of course!
Go Toker Go!
If only DDD could raise the puck
Y E A H !!!!
Toker, Toker, Toker
PAP proving his worth again.
Toker with the arrow move. Eat that don cherry!
Ok, great. Took longer than need be, but we'll take it.
FHFun thread today/tonight my FHFriends!!!
The remain perfect when scoring first. Only team in the league!
Alright, off to work then PARTY TIME! Happy New Years all. Get some rest so you can ben FHFestive tomorrow! I'm already eyeing my giant bottle of spice rum. Hey, it's after noon here.
Happy New Year, Orangeman.
Bonne Année O-man.
Happy new year O-Man!
Nice one PA. The Habs win another one in spite of Therrien. DDD on the shootout! FFS the sooner DGMB gets him shopped to Chicago the better!
Excellent game!I wonder what poor old MacT out in Edmonton would cough up for a legit number 1 goalie like the Toker? Maybe throw in Lego or KidG and swipe that No. 1 pick out of them. They could probably use a couple of veteran defencemen out there as well, I think MB has a couple of them laying around as well.50 points for the Habs, sure looks like they are struggling for a playoff spot like some fucking moron in the Tranna media suggested today.
Yeah I would like to see DBMB force MT to showcase Toker. We have fuckme in the wings and Toker deserves a shot at number one. He may be better than Jaro 2..0
3rd overall behind ANA and CHI. The envious and jealous CotU mediots can eat it as the Habs and Habs' players have had an excellent 2014. Their team, not so much.
RDS said Gallant said pre-game he would like to win in OT because he has friends with the team.Classy.
3 for 3 on the road so far.
A great night! Thanks folks and bon soir.
The added bonus of the FLA point they snagged tonight is it could determine their playoff positioning. Imagine if they up the leaf by a single point to make it. Pure, fucking, icing!
Good night, all.
Bjugstad was extra motivated inking a contract extension during the intermission and celebrated with a goal..
During the intermission...? That is actually pretty cool! Good for him.
According to this guy. Follow George RichardsVerified account@GeorgeRichardsDale Tallon finalized Nick Bjugstad's new six-year deal with agent during first intermission tonight in Sunrise.
Go broons Go Sabres.
Happy New Year to you all, may the new year bring you health, happiness and prosperity!
In case I don't get an opportunity before midnight in the UK, I would like to wish all the FHF regulars a very happy and prosperous new year. Moeman (and 29) huge kudos to you for keeping this blog alive and kicking. Juce - your cheerleading is infectious (vs. Steve - who is just infectious). The M and O Man (whom is already enjoying 2015) who bring sensible discussions to the forefront, Moey for her recipes and love of all things feline (and Saku) and to every one else who pops in here from time to time to cheer, bitch, moan, and generally love the Habs...I WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
