      Unfortunately the leafools won't take the time to read this, they are still cheering the fact their genius GM swapped a non producing, washed up cap eating winger for a crippled one that ml$e can spend $26 million on the next 5 years but hide in their "debit" column. That pile of dog shit shown above epitomizes the leaf organization to a "tee".

    3. When 90% of the mediots give the 'genius trade' credit to the pinheaded nonis and the leafools eat that shitpile like a gourmet meal you know they live in a bizarro world. They'll just re-shit it or puke it out and re-eat it.

    I know I shouldn't admit this but since I can't listen to the two idiots Kypreos and Maclean anymore, for my afternoon leaf shadenfreude entertainment I started watching leaf lunch on tsn with some nobody named Brian Hayes, the annoying as fuck Jamie McLennan and the somewhat likeable, funny O-Dog, Jeff O'Neil. O'Neil is an unabashed leaf fan and I'm okay with that as he grew up there and played for them. He tells some funny stories and he's been trashing the leafs a lot lately, specifically phat Phil. Anyway, what they have been talking about the last week is what all the leafools are looking forward to which is a very, very slight chance to draft Conner McDavid, which according to Hayes would be the greatest sporting event of his life living in the city of Toronto. Wow, that's setting the bar pretty low in my estimation. That's what these people have to look forward to these days. Makes Habs fans problems like eMpTy and wee Davey pretty insignificant I'd say.

    Just as an aside I know I was pumped at the chance Montreal had to get Sidney Crosby after the lockout so things were bad for us one time as well. Unfortunately, I should have known there was no fucking way Buttman was going to let that happen. That draft had to be rigged to insure an American team would get Sid, just like there's no way McDavid is going to Edmonton. I'd call Buttman's pet project Arizona as McDavid's most likely destination.

    I may go to the Sea Dogs game tonight, so I might go dark on the blog tonight. Speaking of dark, Steve is among the missing, is his new job with the Man and he can't talk on the internet anymore?

    From the Gazette:

    "For Smith-Pelly it was nice to see some familiar faces in the locker room when he joined the Canadiens this week. And his first game at the Bell Centre in a bleu-blanc-rouge uniform Saturday night against Toronto will be a special one. He grew up in Toronto with a family full of Maple Leafs fans.

    “I heard from my parents and they’re super excited that I’m playing for a Canadian team and close to home and my grandparents are just as excited,” Smith-Pelly said during a conference call after Tuesday’s trade. “They’re now all Montreal Canadiens fans … and I don’t think they have a problem with that.”"

    I wonder if this will get mentioned tonight on hnic or by the old crotch? Naaaaahhhhhhh.......

    Good Morning mes amis! I went to the Sea Dogs game last night and watched moe's Gatineau Olympiques pummel the home team 6-2. Gatineau is a well coached team by none other than WJC gold medal winning coach Benoit Groulx. The one positive, as I was standing in line to get my ticket, a gentleman walked up to me and asked "do you need a ticket?" I replied yes and he handed one to me so I got in free of charge!

    On to the Habs --- Aaahhhh, Sweet Victory! I watched this game on PVR delay, I think I'll save it for a while just to listen again to a) all the hnic blowing of Carey price who they finally recognize as a star player and b) all the begrudging dialogue on admitting the Habs are a fucking good team.

    And K3X, yes, you heard correctly when Heely said this was a clash between the Canadiens and the Marlies, a not so subtle dig at the inept Toronto hockey organization. Gotta love that.

    Up next, the so called Death March through California that derailed the leaf season, I'm betting the Habs will pick up a few points on the trip.

    Go Habs Go!!!

  68. Now the blue-and white-haired hodge's excuse for the Habs success is because their healthy, they probably can't hold first place if they get injuries - wow, what a fucking genious. Go fuck yourself for wishing harm befalls the Habs.

    ReplyDelete
  69. More scoring would be nice but let's put that into perspective, the goal differential for the top 10 teams in the league - in descending order from #1 is:

    Preds goal differential is +40, Habs +36, Ducks +10, Blues +39, Islanders +26, Rangers and Tampa +40, Detroit +21, Pens +24 and Chicago is +33.

    So the largest gap for the Habs and the teams in the top 10 in the league is the difference between 40-36 = a difference of 4 goals

    I'm not a stats person but this doesn't seem so bad to me and must mean the team in front of TFS is doing their jobs too?

Nobody with a smidgen of intelligence ever bought what they were selling about their putrid leaf anyway but now they realize there's no point in even trying. That's until next season of course after the leaf first win then cue the parade planners. But for the rest of this season we're spared, thank the Lord. It was a sploogefest over Carey last night.

  75. Regarding the game and the coverage of said game. I must get some perverted pleasure out of listening to those sick mediot fucks. It's fucking terrible the way they suck off everything leaf and choke while trying to say something positive about the Habs, especially anything beyond Price. I'll give Kypreos some credit as he called out people that were praising Nonis for the Clarkson trade (noting he is the same guy that signed him to that ludicrous deal). Bottom line is that all of these on air personalities are just fucking leeches...the TMZ of the hockey world. They have no more fucking inside information than you or I. Their predictions are guesses just like you or I would make and usually less accurate. So I take them for what they're worth. Nothing. Sometimes entertaining, if even just in how they try to make everything about the wretched leaf. Connor McDavid is a supposed generational talent - dog help him if he ends up in that shithole. Of course, according to Crotch, they're gonna be gold in 3 years. "Remember 3 years ago - nobody was laughing at the leafs then!" - Anybody hear that? WTF is he talking about...we've been laughing for 48 years and counting. We should embrace the leaf for bringing such joy to our meager lives.

    I got a feeling if MB makes another trade, it's gonna be a biggy and be with the Oil. But as we all know, nobody knows what MB is thinking, except MB. If he's not GM of the year this year, the league is truly a piece of crap. Yeah, it'll probably go to Nonis for 'that' trade.

    SECOND STAR – CAREY PRICE, G, MONTREAL CANADIENS


    Carey Price

    CAREY PRICE
    GOALIE - MTL
    RECORD: 36-11-3
    GAA: 1.88 | SVP: .936
    Price went 9-1-1 with a 1.34 goals-against average, .949 save percentage and two shutouts in 11 appearances to backstop the Canadiens (41-16-5, 87 points) to a 9-3-2 February and first place in the Eastern Conference. He yielded two or fewer goals in each of his last 10 starts of the month, highlighted by shutout wins over the Detroit Red Wings Feb. 16 (25 SV) and Toronto Maple Leafs Feb. 28 (30 SV). Price also extended his franchise-record road winning streak to 10 games, becoming the first goaltender to achieve that feat for any team since Evgeni Nabokov in 2009-10 (11-0-0 w/ SJS). The 27-year-old Anahim Lake, B.C., native has appeared in 50 games this season, leading the NHL in wins (36), goals-against average (1.88) and save percentage (.936) while sharing second in shutouts (6). Price’s 36 victories are two shy of his career high, established in 72 games in 2010-11.

    1. WatCHed it last night. Our Habs have so many well-spoken and high IQ players. Be it the younger like DLR, the Gallys or savvy still young Hab vets like PatCHes, TFS™ and PFK! to grizzled hockey men like PleXXXe, M&M, GonCH and Vodkov (amongst others). We are blessed FHFers and I never use the proverbial 'We'. There is a new generation of CH leaders to enjoy. They are classy, intelligent and respectful on (and off) air, on and off-ice. I believe it comes from top down, as high up as the clouds that are home to the Rockets and Beliveaus and Pollacks and all the great Habs, to Trevor Timmins who I believe is the arCHitect when it comes to drafting Character people/players, to, of course DGMB and his team. Something happened when Mr. Geoff Molson took over our team and I rarely use the proverbial 'our'. Nothing is guaranteed but we are experiencing a resurgence of what is good about hockey and great about the Montreal Canadiens. It is fucking FHFun!

  83. the Maritimer8:05 PM

    Just thought I'd chime in here and point out a few things:

    1) The reason the old Crotch said nobody was laffing at the laffs two years go was 'cuz they had Colton Orr and Frazer McLaren running around intimidating people. Truculence, don't you know, wins games.

    2) It was hugeshit that called Princess Pylon a pinata, because people like to beat on him. Heely referred to the leaf as the Marlies.

    3) The effusive praise heaped on the Habs last night by the hnic crew was a bit unsettling, I actually didn't like it because it sounded so phoney and bizarro world.

    Lots of trades today, the latest is our old pal Eric Cole off to Detroit. I'm undecided if GMMB will pull the trigger on a deal or not. I think he'd like to get another scorer but I don't think he wants to trade his 1st round pick. The Rags and Hawks are definitely going all in, neither has a 1st round pick for 2015 or 2016 and their 2nd rounders may be gone as well. That's not MB's game. I don't think he needs to do a thing, he's got a hot goaltender and enough depth on D to take a run as is.

    Oh, I agree with moe, this team is special, there's something in the air right now about them.
