Another wonderful SF, moeman. Happy Spring? everyone!
Some Whyno guy wrote about how we don't give a shit about shots on net cause we have TFS.What is it with these people.We have a great goalie.He isn't the only reason we are where we are.People are just fundamentally a bunch of fuckwits.Cept for us Habbies of course.Go Habs
It was laughable last night on the godawful intermission segments last night to listen to two particular GTA fuckwits, doug maclean and cox yak about how terrible the Habs play defence and how they are only 26th overall offensively in the league. Yet today, they are 1st overall in the entire league with a mere 10 games to play in the season. Can you fucking imagine the hoopla and trumpet-blowing if their putrid fucking leaf were in that position?Speaking of those beauties, phat phil and his linemates are a collective -90 this season, with phat leading the entire league at -35. I remember those GTA dullards just ripping Ovechkin last year for similar numbers, but is anybody mentioning how their superstar is pure shit in that department? Not fucking likely. That fucking loser has bailed on his team and is playing out the string trying to not get hurt. Disgraceful.That -90 number? Max would wipe out nearly 50% of it on his own and a 35 goal scorer to boot. Does he get any accolades from the mediots? None. Fuck all of you.
I should have said: "Fuck all of THEM (mediots).
That is an amazing letter. Everyone - I know you all don't always click on links in comments but this one is worth the effort - Go read it now!! What a great letter!!!
Nice, like Price.
Moeman - The sun is shining in the UK, it's the first day of spring, there was a solar eclipse this morning and the Habs, sitting at the very top of the table, are coming off another Shuttie - All is very good! And you, once again, have out done yourself! Nice ones all round!!!
Un-fucking believable, PFK got fined for embellishment again for 'something' during the Sens game. What about Ryan and his fucking Oscar performance on the high stick given to Gilbert?
I just watched the 'embellishment' on NHL's site, what a fucking farce, he simply fell, end of story, no penalty, nothing. Is it just me? am I looking through coloured glasses? or what the fuck is going on with the NHL?
No, it's not just you juce. 'The Man' is out to put PK down, plain and simple. On a non-call ffs! And yes, I remember the Bobby "I've just been shot a la JFK" Ryan headsnap very well. Not only was he not penalized for embellishment, not one mediot even made mention of it. They can all fucking burn as the Habs stroll down St Catherine's Street with the cup this June.
Fodder for the mediots, who I also call the SFU, as in Sick Fucks United that know Sweet Fuck All.The Habs are on top of the league standings, did very well last year in the playoffs, are a serious contender again and into the future, ice three of the league's best positional players and may just win the silver mug, soon. SFU is getting a collective ulcer and I love it. Keep proving how useless and clueless you CotU pinheads are.
I do agree with you on that, but what has me seething right now is how the League reviewed game video on this game and felt PFK was embellishing anything at all? This comes from the NHL but of course, the SFU will run with it full throttle because IATG.
This Subban fine really irks me. I've sent the following to the NHL. I'll let you know what I find out.I'm confused by the decision to fine PK Subban for that play from the March 12th game. He fell or tripped or whatever, slid, got up, kept going. No call. No penalty. No issue. Then he gets fined. He's obviously got a target, so whatever. It is what it is.The question is from that same game, did Bobby Ryan get cited for his (MUCH MORE CLEAR) embellishment of Tom Gilbert's high sticking penalty at 12:14 of the first period. You can check it out around the 21 or 22 minute mark of your online video of the game. Seconds after Gilbert's stick glances off his helmet, Ryan goes down, head snapping back like JFK on a warm, sunny November day and crumples to the ice. I'm just curious if this clearly more obvious embellishment was added to Ryan's list of other similar infractions.Thank you for your time.
I think it was after the whistle (a few seconds at least) during the last game he fell on his own, again just simply fell on his own - no play was going on - will the NHL give him a fine for that too? afterall, he fell didn't he? I hope DGMB can do something because this will only get worse in the playoffs if the League fines him for nothing now, he'll be under more scrutiny then because of this stupid, fucking, totally undeserved, totally fabricated embellishment fine.
So on the PFK fine, someone had to ask the league to review his play, on a non-penalized call. Was it the Sens? A ref? The war room idiots? Who complained? Does the league review every minute of every game PFK plays? Jacobs afraid of something?
I have watched that play over and over - I can't believe he was fined for it! Unbelievable! Not embellished anything and it had no impact on the play whatsoever. No one paid it any attention and the commentators didn't even say a word about it - a non play draws a fine...fuck you! But you know what - the Habs won't say a thing because they will get fined and blacklisted even more than they already are...absolutely fuckin'g bullshit. They really just need to win the cup and then let the fucking league have it between the eyes! Fuck you!
I really want someone to interview PFK before the game Saturday night and ask him for his comment...except that PFK is media savy and won't say a thing...which is what is wrong with pro sports these days! You can't call out people for being assholes or dickwads...cause they retaliate with non-calls or bullshit calls...
The SaTURDay night SFU will have a shitiest over it.
Can't wait for them to start defending the call to fine them...there is no way! Not one commentator made even the slightest reference to it during the game. Not one! A complete joke!
Fuck that shit, I will not watch that fucking media outlet unless I have no CHoice, that being said, I will tune in for part of the 2nd intermission only to see Strombo who will be sitting with a few GM's. I saw a promo on it and hear Tallon say how he and DGMB get along..... but that's it, once I see it, I'm outta that fuckwad, IATG piece of shit palace.
I wonder, if the NHLPA can do anything when a player is treated as blatantly and obviously without basis. Afterall, a player is having his reputation tarnished for no reason. Has he embellished? at times, but no where near what he gets call for. This all stems from previous bogus embellishments against him - refusing to fight Kreider, speared in the jewels by Marchand come to mind.
Re: The Fine.As noted, it's complete utter bullshit, and coupled with Tremblay's comments in January show the old boys network that runs this league still has a 1950s Alabama attitude.This hysteria over diving is borne from guys like Cherry, Milbury, the entire bruins organization, etc, that want to keep the game slow. They want 4th line grinders to have equal footing to the superstars in the league. If the refs called the game properly, there would be much less diving in the NHL. But as it is, players have to embellish just to get the ref's attention. If you're being held, hooked, interfered with, there is no incentive to fight through it because then nothing will be called. Only if you go down dramatically will the ref think about raising his hand. Even then, it depends who you are, who the other guy is, what logos you each have on your chests, what the score is, what time it is, what building you're in and who got the last penalty. Tell me any other sport where it is accepted that all those things come into play? The league is so concerned about PK "diving" yet they're totally fine with thugs running superstar goalies in the playoffs and injuring them. They say they want the game's market to grow, but then they protect the nobodies and punish the superstars. Cause you know fans pay to see Kreider, not Price and PK.
I suggest the following...tonight, at the puck drop to start the game, all six Habs on the ice drop to the ice (including TFS). Then they get back up and continue as if nothing happened. Fuck you!
