Yay, I made the front page! And 69 related, no less. Coincidentally (or is it?) the year I was born.Regarding the Outdoor Alumni game from the previous thread:moeman 8:06 PMHal Gill should switch teams at the half way point.Fantastic idea! Even better idea though would be a trade - Gill for Quintal. That would be hilarious. I'm going to pitch the idea to the teams.
Maybe a trade for Petrov.
I left this comment after the fact on the last thread about the alumni game...Derek Sanderson is still alive?
An I agree Moeman - Kerry Fraser is an asshole!
Meanwhile in COTU they're butt hurt that the Laffs have been eclipsed by the Rags and Habs as the NHL's most valuable teams.http://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/2015/11/24/maple-leafs-no-longer-nhls-most-valuable-franchise-according-to-forbes.htmlRichard Peddie, former chief executive officer of Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment, said he believes the Rangers advanced on the strength of the U.S. dollar and a recent $1 billion investment by the corporation that owns them in refurbishing Madison Square Garden.“Montreal, I don’t believe (the ranking) for a second,” said Peddie, who believes the Leafs will be back at No. 1 in time, “with an improved team and a new CEO that worries about increasing the bottom line.”...“Although Montreal is a much smaller market than Toronto, the Canadiens’ television audience is often 20 per cent greater than the Leafs, when you include both the English and French language channels,” Forbes wrote.Now imagine if the Leafs weren't gifted the first game of the Saturday night double header...every...fucking...week. Oh and fuck you Richard Peddie (and Kerry Fraser)
SFU is beside themselves and I love every moment of it.
Four decades of hyping their leaf over every other Canadian team and they still can't get the popularity and appreciation of the classier teams.
Apparently, Ottawa mayor suggested that losing Grey Cup city mayor should wear a laffs jersey for a day. Unfortunately it didn't come to fruition. The SFU reaction would have been priceless
BREAKING: DGMB's contract extended to 2021-2022 season.
Nothing like stability. Congrats DGMB.
Proof that tsn has lost it's last marble.Habs vs. Rangers. NHL's top 2 teams. One Canadian. They lead off with 7 minutes of raptors then go straight to the supposedly injured goalie of their putrid yet structured leaf. Top 2 NHL teams. One of them the Habs. SFUckers.
toronto sports network. Don't ever, ever believe for a second that they are, as they proclaim, Canada's sports network. They are fucking liars. But I don't have to tell you that.
True but they never fail to be anti-Hab. This, to me, is an obvious production/direction decision by them. SFUckers.
Roasted a smallish turkey, smashed taters, buttered broccoli and fresh cranberry in OJ sauce. Butter tarts and a bottle of Hungaria (bday gift).
Just a pumpernickle bagel with strong chedder and a tomatoe & feta salad on the side.
Mario and Sid having issues? Mario says that's silly, Sid hasn't said anything.
Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!
Garou's family name is Garant. His grandfather and my Mom's grandfather were cousins.
Wow! that's awesome.
I have another free night to watch hockey!!! Out here in the central plains I get the pleasure of watching the 2 powerhouse teams battle it out on Sportsnet west....Carolina vs Edmonton...WTF...Fuck you Rogers
I hope the boys can get a couple of quick ones on King Lunkhead. GYFHG!!
CHicken parmesan, HASH browns, corn. And the rest of the Silk Tassel
Russian ref, Vodkov will sweet-talk him.
Ghetto has half the goals kadri does on 83 fewer shots!
Lundqvist is yummy.
'Tis I :)
Holy mother of God, the game is not blacked out here!!!
shh, don't let Buttman hear you.
Ooooh, so close!
I forget but didn't someone do an parody on "In The Ghetto" and his nick was Elvis?
Meh, Henry oversold that save.
Lots of dirty stick work by NYRs.
SN doesn't think it's a penalty. SHOCK!
snet doesn't deserve to broadcast great hockey games.
Well, Habs dominated so I can't wait for the intermission report trying to convince us that the Rags are amazing and MTL can barely keep up.
Lunkhead was busy that period. Habs peppered AV's team.
Could be 3-0.
Sportsnet must have fucked up.. I have 4 games to watch here. Of course there is only 1 that's worthwhile
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!!!!!!!
Haha Rags crashing their own goalie.
Welp, looks like we're all set on right wing!
CASH IT !
They said TFS had some difficulty there and then skated around a bit to fight it off, hope he's ok.
He's fine he was off-balance.
TFS is 'labouring'
My stomach churns every time Pierre Houde mentions it.
Price looks fine to me.
Gary Gally is seriously living in another dimension. Apparently the Rangers dominated on that PP and now have all the momentum. The Habs literally had more shots in those 2 minutes, and attacking zone time wasn't that much more for the Rangers. I guess Gally has to scream about something, to cover up the sound of his fapping to the thought of the Rangers catching up.
ugh Kill it.
Great game by DSP.
That was some good work by Semin from his bum.
Oh piss off, tell the Rag to hold on to his stick.
fuckface bettman made a call.
Didn't even cost him long distance.
Fuck, on a bogus penalty.
There you go refs, all your hard work finally paid off.
Three fucking penalties in a row buttman must be in the building trying to get his Rags a win.
You know what's funny. In games like this, where one team is given every chance to win by the officials, it's always interesting how the penalties suddenly stop when they score. So suddenly the Habs are playing disciplined hockey, when every time they were within 5 feet of a Rag was a penalty up to that goal?
Rags were cheapshotting all game. Squat in penalties.
Interesting rumours on the internet regarding Sid being unhappy. It's not unheard of for players of certain stature to force a trade to where they want to go. Rick Nash, Martin St. Louis come to mind recently and of course who could forget Saint Patrick's big Fuck You to Tremblay and Corey with poor Peanut Houle getting literally peanuts for him. Food for thought. MB's got the balls to do it too.
... and it wouldn't be some Ray Bourque parade in Boston via Colorado. I think PIT's problem is their coach.
Phat Phil...poison follows him everywhere.
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!!!!!!!
No TFS™ in the 3rd.
Sheik in nets.
Ah fuck. Price injured.
Like I said, all set on right wing. Kinda iffy in nets. *facepalm*
That should shut up the SFUckers.
31+39 is almost = 69
Good a PP, CASH THE PUCKER
So long Lunkhead
Great pass by CHucky.
Fuck you Gary
Honestly, not getting cocky, but the Rangers don't look that good. It's sort of like the Habs from a couple of years ago. Without Henry they'd be a bubble team. Except on paper, they should be much better.
Let me just say: I love that this game was hyped as the most important of the season to date and the Habs brought their A game. Sans kid A and TFS, no less.
Gawlley can't make enough excuses for Lunkhead, right down to blaming his new skates. Hilarious.
SFU is blaming King's skates. Yeah, sure. STFU!
Apparently Semin is injured, too? Holy moly, what's going on?
Jizz sitting. We may see Bud Holloway soon. He'll need a nickname.
Semin, lower body injury.
Congrats boys. They played a very good game in spite of the refs and Buttman.
No. 1 baby. Eat shit SFUckers.
Hopefully, TFS stayed out as preventative measure.
I've been saying it, Rangers' record was deceiving. They were playing mediocre teams mostly at home, and were still getting outplayed.
Blob M referred to either Dallas or the Rags as an 'offensive juggernaut' yesterday? even though the Canadiens had more goals wirh 78GF, Dallas with 74GF and Rags with 66GF. I know I'm a bit mathematically challenged, but even I can cipher that, how do the SFU have no shame?
You know, lots of Hab fans lament the Gomez trade that gave the Rangers McDonagh and rightly so. But he usually looks like crap every time he plays MTL. Another -2 tonight.
Terrible post game show on TSN690. Eesh.
I listened to it, too and thought it was just because it had been a while.
My first reaction is that time moved and I did not, I hope this cylce does not reapeat itself unless it is in victory, then I will say the usal GYFHG
That game last night... two words come to mind about the Habs from start to finish: "business like". No over the top goal celebrations, just a quick gathering - good job fellas - then back to the dot and lets go. Other than a little flurry at the end of the first and when the refs tried like hell to get the Rags back in it in the second the Habs dominated. End of story. I feel they are on a mission. The young core of Price Patches Subban Petry and the indefatigable kidG(A) know they are good enough to win. They are out to prove it.
Here's the NHL's stats for attendance this year:http://espn.go.com/nhl/attendanceHabs are second yet again behind "109.7%" Chicago. I'm sorry, but if your building has had 110% capacity for 20 years then I think it's time to just say that's just 100%. We see what you're doing, Blackhawks. And those stands will be empty again in 3 years when your core is completely gone and/or old. It's also laughable that Toronto is at 102% when you watch any of their games and the lower bowl is half empty the entire time. Anyway, the interesting point is that when the Habs are the road team attendance is at 99.5%, significantly higher than "Canada's Team" the leaf. Total attendance is 4th, just behind The Cup Champs and their inflated %, the Rangers (New Yorker assholes are everywhere) and Sidney Crosby.
From "Habs Hater" Puck Daddy:The 10 Most Pleasant Surprises of the NHL Season:"7. Tryouts Work OutFor many veteran players in a capped league, a professional tryout contract is their best last resort. And for Scott Gomez, Martin Havlat, Brad Boyes, Lee Stempniak, Dainius Zubrus and others, it’s been a banner year for familiar faces getting another chance on the cheap."No mention of Yeast (is that what we're calling him? Flash?) who has the same amount of goals as all the other guys combined. Not to mention a couple of those guys were total busts and only played a couple of games. "3. The Dallas OffenseWhile the rest of the league contemplates smaller goalies and bigger nets, the Stars just keep scoring. Jamie Benn has 16 goals, Tyler Seguin has 12 and Patrick Sharp and Jason Spezza have eight each. Jordie Benn is the only Dallas player to have played at least 10 games and not have a goal. We love this team."Right, so the playoff team that had the least amount of goals last year and now has the most in the league this season is not a 'surprise'. Oh, wait, I get it. He said 'pleasant surprise'. Nothing about the Montreal doing well is pleasant to this Hab hating idiot.
Haven't visited that dump in almost two years. The other leafool is mcindoe and his departure is the only positive of Grantland shutting down.
Before you even bother reading the "article"...start with the fact it is Fuck Daddy - then stop and make some toast or something. Not worthy of anyone's time.
The PFuck balloon has been in the sidebar since day one.
Hilarious to see all the SFUckers offering optimus reims to the Habs. Um, we don't need him. Now fuck off.
Still no internet for me as the house repairs are still going - hoping to have it back by the weekend. From what I have seen and read, the Habs looked good last night. Rangers - not so much! Tough news on TFS - maybe he came back too soon after Condom played like a rookie all of the sudden. Hope it was just a precaution. I'm reading about possible trades for another veteran goalie if TFS goes out long term...don't know about that - anyone good would cost too much I would have thought. I watched some highlights earlier and Lego looked really strong on a couple of plays. Hard to get a true feel on those clips however. And DSP looks like a machine! I loved his quote about replacing KidA - something about standing in front of the opponent's net, getting hit all over the place and just smiling and waving! Over all I think that this team is for real. GO You Fucking Habs Go!
TFS placed on IR, out a least a week.
Tinordi sent down for conditioning, Bud Holloway makes his debut Friday.
Semin also placed on IR.
“My babysitter started calling me Bud when I was one or 2,” Holloway said following Sunday’s morning skate in Brossard as the Canadiens prepared to face the New York Islanders at the Bell Centre. “I’m George III, so it makes it easy to call someone Bud and less confusing around the house.”We need a nick, for Holloway, 'bud' is too leafish. How about G3? or just George?
Let's see if he is worthy of a FHF nickname before giving it to him. G3 is my choice however. For now - bud it is
Spud... think Stompin' Tom Connors
Yeesh, as if refs aren't enough of a problem already...they cause injury to players. Matt MacPherson. takes down Yakupov and is now out 2-4 weeks.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llpRC8e0bT4
OK so here's a fun little article from our SFUcker friends at snet, the top 5 scorers from the 2012 draft.5. Morgan Reilly the next Bobby Orr...1. Alex Galchenyuk who is, and I quote: "a useful forward" Does that make him almost as good as Dive Artist Supreme Kadri?Where do they find these asshole writers up there in t.o.?
Regarding Bud's nickname the Buddy Holly angle is good. Holly? Spud is ok, but he's not an islander. G3 might be bad mojo considering RG3 (for those that follow nfl). There's the fact that the movie/play The Madness of King George is based on George III. Madman? or what about just III? If he scores it could be III!!! Anyway, get to 100% TFS. No rush - lots of points in the bank.
Just to go back to moe's comment about Reimer. I agree the Habs don't need him. However, Reimer is actually not a bad goalie. He's like Luongo, although not nearly as talented. I mean, he just can't perform in big games and often lets in a goal at the worst time. But in general he's an okay goalie. Serviceable, if you will. Which makes Babs and the leaf look like bigger fools for consistently choosing Bernier over him. Bernier is not a good goalie. Like...at all. Perhaps as a back up to an all start who will see 10-15 games against weak opponent per year. So what he was doing in LA. But as usual, the leaf overpaid for him and now feel the need to force his square peg into a round hole. What boggles my mind is why Reimer has agreed to stay in Toronto with the fans, management, coaching staff and teammates constantly throwing him under the bus. He's still probably just a back up, but could play around 30 good games per year. Maybe even a starter on a bad team (like the leaf). He carried them on his back for most of the last few seasons, even getting them to G7 against the broons. Yeah, he will never get a team much farther but he's still eons ahead of Bernier. Anyway, my two cents. Still, Habs don't need him. Get a right winger if you're going to get anybody.
MB would never allow leaf stench into Habs dressing room. Besides, not enough CHaracter on any of those stiffs.Back to back Devils games? Ugh, thanks Gary, fire your schedule maker please.
