Did eMTy find a power forward or a big, scoring No. 1 center under his tree yesterday? No? Carry on then. Lots of CHoices for sports viewing today - WJC marner! marner! marber!, Spengler Cup Go You Fucking Minor leaguers Go! with Guy Boucher (Habs coaCH in waiting) and the Eagles/Redskins game tonight. Did I miss anything? Oh Yeah, Habs will be trying to slow Ovie down! Go Habs Wake The Fuck Up!!
Just fuckin' win!
Caught the last 20 minutes or so of the SFU plays of the year on SNET. The only Habs related play was the illegal, unpenalized head check by Karlsson on N8 from the playoffs with Mike Johnson climaxing to the hit. Fuckemall I say. BTW how many dunks by mutant basketball players to you need in the POTY? It happens about 14 times every game FFS.Anyway, go habs go. I expect nothing but more heartbreak. But give 'er.Daughter 1 got the Hobbit trilogy so started watching that last night. Got a Star Wars marathon planned for Monday before we see the latest installment.Then there's all that Netflix stuff I haven't binged yet. So if the boys aren't going to pick up the pace, they might end up on my back burner.
Happy Boxing Day everyone.Hope the Habs had enough rest(?) to get out of their funk. Read that KidA is skating in a non-contact jersey with his mates and Kassian asked not to report to the Ice Dogs.
John LuVerified account@JohnLuTSNMtl#Habs say that after speaking with Zack Kassian's agent he has been asked by the team to not report to the AHL IceCaps until further notice.Renaud Lavoie @renlavoietvaRemember their is a roster freeze in the NHL. A trade involving Zack Kassian is still possible. We'll know more in the next few days.10:24 AM - 26 Dec 2015Anyone think he'll be traded? What team would be willing to give him a go?
Hookers and Blow (aka Las Vegas) will give a first round pick and a bag of soon to be legal weed for him,.
Merry Holidays everyone, I hope it was pleasant for everybody. I got a bit of cheer in me and even starting thinking optimistically about our team. Then I checked the lines and scratches before going to bed tonight. That didn't last long. Oh well. The 'freeze' on moves ends on the 28th. Because of this ridiculous schedule, that means two or three more games until anything, if anything is indeed being worked on. Speaking of the schedule, what is up with piling on game for this road trip? Habs have already played more than everyone else, up to 3 games more than many teams. But they need to have another 3/4 night combo? What's the rush here?
He"ll be traded to Philly for some prospects along with Andrighetto, Kassian will then play with Giroux and turn into LeClair 2.0 and torment us for the next 10 years, just watch
Matt your a fucking genius, fear the fucking collapse, no, we are in it already
DDD needs a bit more PP and icetime, that will turn this Titanic billion dollar enterprise around like a Mini 3am on St Caths street.Go you Fucking Habs Go, Steve should be in attendance, he told me he was
I think they should double shift DDD like Bowman used to with Lafleur. He'll have to smoke 3 packs a day like Guy did.
OK, so the Caps are scoring an average of 3 goals a game and over the last month the Habs are averaging 1.58 GPG. Sounds like a winning recipe to me.I wonder if 29 could wear his half and half jersey to try and break the losing streak?
Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!
CHinese food. Leffe.
Might have a sip from a Xmas gift;http://www.jackdaniels.com/whiskey/jack-daniels-single-barrel
Habs arrived around 4 before their equipment.
I wonder if Holtby will lose his helmet yet again, I don't think I've ever seen a game where he doesn't.
Yup. Deja vu all over again.
Kill another one.
DDD never shoots. Shoot the fucking thing.
He shot it when he was on the 3rd line.
Exactly, now he's back on the top line and back to his old ways, thanks eMpTy.
Cash it!hahahahahahaha. I couldn't type that without breaking out laughing.
Left over CHicken dinner, with mashed potatoes, squash, homemade dressing and cranberries. Smithwick's ale.Man are they ever snakebit. Couldn't put the puck in the Bay of Fundy standing on the end of a wharf.Is Wayne Simmonds coming soon?
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!!!!!!!
Now get out there and score.
Now the rest of you, pay attention to Auto and do what he does.
Is it kind of sad that I have no faith that they're going to win, but I'm still happy because they scored? Small victories.
DDD, SHOOT THE FUCKING THING.
He won't. But he'll be double shifted until we're in our graves.
That's twice he's all alone in front of the net and he passes the puck. yeesh
Sheik is saving their asses. I wish Pleks and Max would get off theirs.
Condon's the only reason they're in this game.
Sheik was on top of his game during that onslaught.
just got in and seems like nothing important has changed
Can you imagine KidA and Auto on the same line?
No. I literally can't. It's so outside of my viewing experience of this team.
eMTy would never figure that out.
DDD sucked up like a pebble facing a DYSON animmal vacuum
Ovie told the refs PFK was diving, but the replay was clear that he got a stick in the face, so fuck off Ovie. Go CaCHe it!
The irony is that the Caps have been diving all over the ice all night.
looks like TinTin won his fight with a tough customer
C'mon Holtby, let one in.
well at least our draft position is improving
They are playing a half decent game tonight but Max is useless...
nylander gets nailed heh heh
marner didn't impress me today
It appears Kassian will be on the move ... maybe San Jose ... a bag of pucks and 7th rounder?
bag of something
i am not one to comment on satorial splender , but you can have pants too tight
yeah, George's undies have to be up the crack of his ass. And he'll never have kids keeping his balls tucked up that tight.
he has the adomen of a Ken Doll
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!!!!!!!
Ovie cross-checked PFK in the back, no call.
PK got his call for the...month.
Ovie's whining that embellished and then their coach complaining to the refs.
God, DD is a blackhole.
Caps dive = no problem!MTL actually gets interfered with = EMBELLISHMENT!
Oh fuck off, Lb got a penalty for that? Ref's offsetting penalty is what that was.
To follow up what O-Man said... DDD is a black hole where pucks go to die.
Oh man, just when I was thinking...1 goal, just 1 more goal...
Ok, that's it folks.
That's it. Over to the football game. But hey, maybe another nail in eMTy's coffin.
we have just about worn them out from our continual 5 on 5 pp for them
broons lose. so, there's, like, that.
Good to know,I was just going to check.
I'm just glad Weise and DDD were out there for the last minute again. Because when I think of guys who just haven't gotten enough opportunities to perform, I think of them.
PFK had a good game, 3 hits, 1 give away and one take away, so that evens out I guess.
Alright, back to work. Night, kids.
According to Fried man, a few teams on doing some leg work on acquiring Kassian, mentioned the Sharks.HA, would love to get Brent Burns, I know, I know, it won't happen, but I need comic relief right now.
Man this stuff is hard to watch. Lots of trade rumours out there. Whatever it is, I don't expect any sort of saviour coming our way. But regardless of what the trade is, I'm gonna cross my fingers that (Y) is heading out of town. Slow and useless. The nice hit every 5 games or so isn't worth it. On the ice, slow and beaten for goals 2 & 3 tonight, the latter by a 36 year old grinder in Chimera. I'd take a 5th round pick any day of the week.Oh well, go Skins!
Last time the Montreal Canadiens lost 10 of 11 games, they fired Alain Vigneault and gave Michel Therrien his first NHL coaching job (2000).
Well, at least there's one guy who is still winning. Congratulations, TFS."MONTREAL - Carey Price is Canada's male athlete of the year.The Montreal Canadiens goaltender won the Lionel Conacher Award in a landslide.The 28-year-old took 53 per cent of the vote in a Canadian Press poll of sports editors and broadcasters across the country.Sprinter Andre de Grasse was second with 28 per cent.Price had a dominant season in goal. He led the National Hockey League in goals-against average and save percentage while leading Montreal to second place overall.He won the Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player and the Vezina Trophy as top goaltender as well as two other NHL awards.Price is the first hockey player to be named male athlete of the year since Sidney Crosby in 2010 and the first goalie to ever take home the honour."
What? Lb's penalty was for diving? I thought it was because he gave that little elbow to Laich. I guess I missed the the replay.
If gCHuck and N8 are traded and we do not win the cup, there will be a second Richard Riot. Either EMty or DDD has to go, together they are two pair that cant beat one of a kind.
I got a mechanical keyboard for Christmas, man can I ever comment now. I feel like Elmore Lenord.
I'm getting caught up on the games I pvred yesterday, Spengler Cup - Team Canada has a bunch of ex-Habs playing for them. Manny Malholtra, Matt D'Agostini, Tom Pyatt and last but not least, old favourite and PP Specialist (Urologist) .... MAB!!! All coaCHed by future pure wool Habs coaCH Guy Boucher! eMTy doesn't know it yet but he's about to be working for Rick Dudley as a pro scout, I'd say about Jan. 6 after they have lost 10 in a row. Upcoming defeats to TB, Fla, Bos and Philthy should seal his fate.
Sadly...that is what it is going to take for a change...
Siging EMpty to a long term deal is good biz. It will keep the Anti Chamber from foaming at the mouth when he is fired, and it sends a signal to the league CH is willing to spend to improve. It was a good investment so he can honourably be discharged.

Comment of the day "throw DDD into the Sun"
Are we still crap? Oh wait, yup.
The ONLY trophy Carey is missing is the coveted Stanley Cup which he will win as soon as MT gets the fuck out of here.
Worst part of this season is similar it is to many previous leaf seasons. Have a great October, get a bunch of idiots on the web planning the parade, even have the mediots thinking the team might be for real, then BAM! Reality sets in and it's clear there are many missing parts and eMTy, the helmsman, to spite himself will not steer away from that iceberg and he'll keep playing DDD in big important minutes.
Congrats to TFS™ on the Canadian Athlete of the year award! .
TFS get well soon!!
Just came back from Star Wars, still high. Right now I say its the best movie going experience ever.The force is strong in JJ Abrams.
I just saw it tonight as well. Almost as good as Episode IV, A New Hope. Lots of tributes to that movie by JJ Abrams. I must say I liked his Star Wars better than his Star Trek reboot.
Ghetto gets back into the lineup, Sheik will get the start in Florida and Mark Barberio called up from St. John's.
I figure MB is showcasing Lord Byron, and Tin Tin thats why Ghetto was sitting.
'Twas the night after Christmas, when all over the iceNot a player was scoring, just one would be niceThe sticks were all stacked behind the benches with care,In hopes that a magic one would be there;The boxing day hangover cured with pure legal meds;While visions of being traded danced in their heads;Then with MT's thinning hair, I watched the caps,Take it to the Habs, save a few little scraps,When out on the rink, they cut the Caps lead in half,It was Otto again, you just gotta laugh.The Sheik kept them in it, shooting his pads like a flash,While getting peppered, still cleaning up the trash,But how it was to end I think we all know,Not enough goals for one team to showSo they're off to Tampa and F.L.A.I can't imagine what eMTy might say,Is MB working on his own magic trickPerhaps it's (Y) for a 3rd round pick,Nobody's safe and all are to blame,And MT whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:"Now, Patches! now, PK! now Markie and Eller!On, Chucky! on, Petry! on, Condan and that other feller!To be continued...or not.
Great job Saint Paddy. MB better not trade my Sea Dog Buddy N8 for some washed up former scorer like Chelios for Savard or I might have to give up watching the Habs. There better be nothing less than Crosby or Stamkos coming back.
continue, be sure to add in a red nose on reHAB
BREAKING: Kassian to Edmonton for Scrivens.
Edmonton Oilers @EdmontonOilers 2m2 minutes agoThe #Oilers have acquired forward Zack Kassian from @CanadiensMTL in exchange for goaltender Ben Scrivens.
I hope this doesn't mean they expect Price to be out longer than expected.
Oh man, I nicked him Sievens when he was a leaf.
We're almost out of the playoff spot, with a combined .885 sVp, MB had to do something
On an un-related but still a bad boy subject, the other Kane is being investigated for a sexual assault incident in Buffalo.
Meh. MB had to do something with Zack. Guess the Toker is finished with the Habs.
Scrivens' cap is $2.3 which will be pro-rated of course. Stephan Waite is sure earning his salary this season.
I'm indifferent to extremely cautiously optimistic about the trade. Kassian was worthless as is to us, might as well give another goalie a shot. It's hard to imagine it getting much worse back there. Who knows, maybe Scrivens will go on a hot streak. I was kind of hoping for Reimer (I know, I know, but he's actually not a bad goalie. Not great, but could hold down the fort for a while). I guess they've got a few smarter guys in Toronto these days, though.
Oilers retain 24 percent of Scrivens salary or $552,000.
