Kudos to you moeman for bothering after the clusterfuck that was last night - I am really feeling completely deflated and have ZERO expectations of anything other than a close loss again tonight. I don't want to bring othewrs down with my negative feelings so I won't be commenting until there is something positive to say. Sorry guys but last night just killed something inside of me.
Dark cloud - very apropos of you, moeman.
Now that I've calmed down, here's how I see it. MB wanted to have a choice in where to send Tinordi rather than lose him on the waiver wire, the Coyotes inquired about him beginning of the season but made no firm offer and the longer Tinordi sat, the more his value dropped. (thanks Therrien - you killed another one) I think MB wanted to find a home for Tinordi where he would actually play and not sit in the press-box, the Coyotes wanted to get rid of Scott instead of paying him to be in the AHL knowing the Habs could afford to do so since they were paying Tinordi to sit anyway. They basically traded a D for a D and Scott had to go with him. At first I was livid but now that I calmed down, I can see the logic behind it and MB gets some cap.The more Tinordi was left to sit by Therrien, the lower his value got and the Yotes moved in this time insisting John Scott go along because they didn't want to pay him to play in the AHL AND because he refused their request not to attend the AS game It gave MB more control of his destination rather than putting him on waivers would have done where he would lose him for nothing and could have been picked up by a bottom feeder like the leafs for only minimal salary that he was earning. Though they would have had to let him play on the team if they did but he could have replaced Phaneuf. I wish Scott wasn't a Hab and I hope Therrien NEVER gets a say about calling him up EVER.The sad part is, even if it's John Scott, and this was a way to keep him out, it is dirty and underhanded to try to block him from attending and a slap in the face to the fans who did vote. All this tells fans - once again - that the league only views us fans as a nuisance they have to deal with all the time - the same fans who pay the salaries are are the reason the league even exists.
I am just a little concerned with what the presence of a pissed off John Scott will do to the young impressionable guys in St. John's. Ghetto - and particularly Auto - will probably bring a bit of bitterness into the room right now too. Happy for Tin Tin, however, and hopefully he can restart his career there. One hopes (prays) there is more to come on the trade front today from MB. Meanwhile, St. Louis is racked with injuries right now and might just be ripe for a home loss tonight. Weiss is looking likely to return and then tomorrow, Chicago will be playing their first home game after a road trip, which is typically the best time to catch a team, win streak or not. So there is an opportunity for 4 points here, and the Kool-Aid is mighty tasty, I must say.
R.I.P. Dan Haggerty
Heard yesterday or last night but completely forgot with the trade.R.I.P. Grizzly Adams.
lets build the team around DDD. I think DLR is showcasing as part of drioun deal. Emilin is moving up to showcase with Petry. DGMB is trying to make a deal without losing big mac
GO PATS!!! 14-6 at the half. I'll take it considering my uncertainty about the Pats ability to stick with the red hot Chiefs. Long way to go yet though.And go Habs...I guess. Over at SFU HQ, one of the headlines reads Maple Leafs chasing No. 1 overall pick while maintaining dignity. Really? You're going to actually put that as a headline and just say fuck it, everybody knows we bleed blue and white, so yeah, fuck it? Meanwhile, MB says dignity, schmignity. Give me John Scott...and that Matthews kid.
I see eMTy is putting gCHuk on his pet's wing. Fine, keep digging that hole you smugfuck!
Sens win vs LA, now they are 1 pt behind the Habs.
Spaghetti bolognese, a bit of CHard, strawberry upside down cake all in the M.oderation.
Softened brie CHeese with pecans on top with drizzled honey on top with Breton crackers and some Voga.. Got too late too cook.
Very nice juce!
I love warmed Brie with homemade cranberry sauce.
Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!
GYFHG! DUTCH GRETZ HATTIE TONIGHT?
I thought the anthems were well done.
For sure, replay clearly shows Blues player with his skate and part of his leg under Sheik's arm. To me it looks good.
Oh fuck off.
What is this, butter-stick night?
Tarasenko looks a bit like little tits.
CaCHe it pucks sake.
Grrr. They stink. Didn't miss a thing while I was gone, didn't miss watching them lose every frigging game. I HATE LOSING!So how is everyone?
Feeling about the same. How was the trip?
Hi Kate! How's the tan?
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!!!!!!!

Scores even while laying flat on the ice!
OK, not completely flat, but still.
Did anyone see Vodkov celebrate PFK?
uh oh, Kill it.
Oh fuck off, that all started because KidA was PUSHED FFS.
Guy Smiley aka KidA keeps on going like a the energizer bunny!
Legal hit by (y)!
CaCHe the fucker ffs.
KidA deserves a justice goal tonight.
PleXXXe did fuck all and gets punCHed in the face.
another 5 on 3 for 15 secs then 2mins
39-16 SOG after 2. 8 power plays. And the game is tied. This team needs help.And just wait for the conspiracy theorists - you take John Scott off the NHL's hands, you get 10 PPs every game for the rest of the season.
That all ready happened yesterday by the fucking laff fans.
*already* Typing is not in sync with my brain. Is this what getting old is?
I feel like I'm watCHing the fucking broons.
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!!!!!!!
Imagine if they actually had a good power play? Remember a few years ago, you knew if they got one you were going to pay.
'belle chance ratter par Desharnai' ....where have I hear that before?
shit, kill it.
FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Shiek, stop handling the puck ffs.
He always ends up passing to the opponent along the boards.
I would love to see KidA score....it would be payback for all his abuse.
Well, at least 1 pt for their efforts, wonder how MT will fuck this up....
1 pt for the efforts, *for now*
Fuck, Vodkov turns it over. FUCK OFF MT!
BrianWilde @BWildeCTV 16s16 seconds agoMarkov made the error in the previous overtime if I recall correctly. Petry and Beaulieu are the guys with the OT 3 on 3 wheels.
Another game they did dominate....stick you dominations in a sack as George Costanza would say. FIRE MT FFFS, he has not fucking clue.
Old man Vodkov...terrible play. Then young Chucky misses his check. And not a chance Condon was stopping that. Not a tough shot - you just knew how this was going to end. Can't wait to hear MT tell us how great they played and just didn't have the luck. MB's fuse must be getting short. If i isn't then he's not the right man for the job after all.
Sheik saved some sure goals SH....then screws up for the tying goal. Nothing seems to be cohesive anymore.
Fuck off, Bergy and Bossy, dissing Vodkov showing PFK some love after he scored. WTF is wrong with it? Is it because they want to feed PJ Cock's fantasy that PFK is hated by his teammates? Go fuck yourselves. I loved it and I love Vodkov's kiss planted on PFK during the playoffs vs the Sens when he scored too.
Vodkov is not an emotional guy by nature, I love that side of him and I love the 'mad Vodkov' too.
BrianWilde @BWildeCTV 6m6 minutes agoFatigue causes errors. Therrien said he had to manage Markov's minutes because it's a marathon. Beaulieu 14Petry 20Markov 26 minutes.BrianWilde @BWildeCTV 4m4 minutes agoIt feels not like the players have lost confidence in their coach but that he has lost confidence to execute his own plan.
Wow. Without exaggeration, it actually looked like the Habs tried to lose that game in the end. They score late to go up, go out of their way to allow the tying goal. Then they're in the attacking zone, back out, give the Blues the puck and stand and watch as they win. I don't even know what to say anymore.
