  4. Funny that anytime the Habs were 1st in the league they were never referred to as 'NHL Best' or "League-Leading"

    1. Speaking of lame mediots, you'd think this type of garbage would get you are warning. Lucky for the bad cox the company he works for owns the leaf, sick fuck;

      "DAMIEN COX MARCH 16, 2015, 12:26 PM
      BOCA RATON—Fix the draft lottery? Of course not.

      But if you could…well of course you’d give Connor McDavid to the Maple Leafs.

      It’s tough sometimes to discern whether the NHL is a sports league or a business, but if it were pure business, putting the game’s next attraction in its biggest market would naturally provide the biggest boost possible.

      This isn’t 1985 where everybody could just sit back and laugh at Harold Ballard and the Laffs. The way the NHL’s business is set up now it benefits the owners AND players to have Toronto maximizing it’s revenue potential, which clearly isn’t the case right now.

      If the Leafs make more, the pie gets bigger, and both the league and the players get half of that. With Toronto out of the playoffs again this spring, TV ratings, for starters, will take a significant hit, which hurts the Leafs, the league and hits the players in their wallets as well.

      Fix the draft? Of course not. But the league’s GMs will be discussing ways to present this year’s draft lottery in a different way over the next few days, and if one of the mock scenarios were to have McDavid land in a Leaf uniform, you can bet that Dave Nonis won’t be the only executive in the room thinking that would be good for business.

      What a fucking crock of shit. I suppose the mediots have to give leafools something to read other than another "woe is us" piece like DiManno wrote today.

      As for the two goalies mentioned, why sure, give the trophies to two johnny-come-latelies who've played less than half a season, in one case a few weeks. What a fucking moron. Who hires these idiots anyway?

  8. After the game Saturday I was worried about the lway the Habs won. I realise now that they play a system that has, for the most part, worked this season. Not always but mostly. And at this point I suppose it is too late to change that season for this season, so I have to roll with it, cross my fingers and hope for the best. As for tonight, ditto! Go Habs go! Go Habs go!

  11. Notice that since their media can no longer camoulfage how putrid, lazy, talentless and self-entitled their team is that they rarely have pre-games threads for other teams on their network any more? What hasn't changed is trying to get a comment on the post-game threads if you want to counter the laff trolls and say go negative in response.

  17. With GM's also looking at diving, Savard says the fines do nothing, they should start by giving the divers 10mins. I don't agree with that, we've seen how some players get called when they did nothing and weren't diving at all.

    Maybe the refs need clean up their officiating and do their jobs properly and focus on the game instead of their lists and searching for divers.

  20. So frustrating watching the Habs pass pass pass pass pass pass while the other team puts it on net right away and gets a good scoring chance.

    SHOOT THE FUCKING PUCK!

    Interesting, the NYI are top 5 in GF, while MTL is 22nd. Yet they have identical 9% shooting percentages.

  47. I think what's most sad on that give away goal is that it was 4on4 and a TB player (Stamkos) wasn't in the play, yet PatCHes still had no play in the neutral zone.

    ReplyDelete
  48. What? Damphouse says the pass was a mistake but says stamkos is intelligent and know that the D rotate and maybe it was him that said 'hey patch" and he passed it
    Can't really hear on ice when it's RDS so I can't say if anyone even called him for the pass.

  49. Maybe Plaid is in the doghouse because they scored on his high-stick penalty.

    Has there been a one goal game where Eller didn't take a penalty in the last 2 minutes this season? I actually went back to check, but lost count after six. It's pretty incredible. Having said that, it was all Gilbert's fault. Habs pressing, and breaks his stick YET A-FUCKING-GAIN. Can we agree Gilbert is a waste of time back there, at least offensively?

  95. Having said all that, they had their chances but couldn't bury them. Good thing we have 6 4th liners playing instead of someone who can score. Nice moves, MB. Lots of CHaracter! It'll look good on the golf course.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Summary, no hooking call when Patches was going to score, gCHyuk gets a high stick on Bishop which was actually a high stick by strallman, CHarger gets 5 when he didn't drop the gloves and Angelidis cleary came from behind to get in front of him and start a fight CHarger didn't want drawn into and Angelides should have had an instigator (which the refs rarely call anymore and actually look at the roster pre-games and check if any players have previous instigators on them), a knee on knee at the beginning of the game that wasn't called and a shit bogus call on Lego with about 2.5 mins to go and I'm not even sure about an 'interference' on CHarger when Bishop was behind the net. Oh, and an intentional stick to kidG by Namestinky which had nothing to do with the play that he didn't like and let him know about and since kidG knows they won't call it, he has to stick up for himself.

    It's not all on the refs but it sure doesn't fucking help matters either.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Well the boys didn't help themselves. That first 4 minute power play and nobody would shoot the fucking puck. Statrted slow and sluggish again. I try not to blame the refs too often for eMTy's failings, but they were horrible tonight. Starting with the first goal. It wasn't vicious, but Filpula crosschecks Markov into the boards before eventually getting the puck back. It's why Markov wasn't in the correct position for a proper block attempt. Not to mention it should have been a penalty.
    Patches' breakaway - the original stick check was good but then clearly hooked him in the hands. There was a great camera angle right over the refs shoulder that showed it, so he saw it.
    Lego had position on that late play. The bolt player put his arm across Lego's midsection and grabbed on.

    But in the end, they had their chances. They learned they CAN beat the freak of nature in goal. And don't pass to Stamkos. Should be good if they need to meet in the playoffs.
