Orangeman6:37 AMDrouin seems to be a desperation hail mary play for MB to keep his (and by extension) MT's job. It's worrying because in that case he may play loose with the future of the franchise to make something happen now. Which is even more ridiculous when you consider the fact that Drouin is still too young and too untested to even be considered a game changer. People, including MB, may say that big pieces don't get moved that much but there have been some big trades so far this year, and a few big names were available this past summer (i.e. Sharp). The problems were very obvious back then, as I and others have said Price may have masked them but anyone paying attention could see them clear as day. The irony being the team is actually playing better this year. In other news, Fargo still sucks. One more episode to 'watch' as I surf in other windows, do laundry or stare blankly at a wall. Hey, I'm on break.RepliesSteve7:14 AMSt louis has already offered Shattenkirk as part of a package, that would mean Petry for usScott in Montreal8:16 AMI consider Petry a crown jewel. I hope MB does too. Drouin is not worth that with Carr available.K3X8:37 AMAllow me to wade in on the Drouin issue...why would you give up a roster player for someone not able to crack the bolts lineup? if he was the next big thing he would be playing and setting the league on fire. Just because he's french does not warrant unloading a proper full time player...unless it's ddd in which case straight up make that deal...but I digress. if he was the answer to what ails the Habs - or any other team for that matter - he'd be gone already...but he isn't so move on...DGMB needs to make a proper trade involving proper players...oh yeah - and he needs a new coach...
My D line-up;PFK+(Y)Dish+N8Vodkov+Barb or whoever isn't sitting
Allow me to chime in on the D pairings, I agree that Vodkov needs to drop back to the 3rd pairing, he doesn't have the legs or speed anymore to be on the top pairing. Also, eMTy needs to start incorporating N8 into the first PP unit with PFK. When he was with the Sea Dogs during the Memorial Cup run in 2011 he ran the PP. Now he is very hesitant to shoot or make a mistake for fear of an eMTy benching. Gallant used him a lot differently ... he would probably love to have him back with Huberdeau on the Panthers.Speaking of said Panthers, I'm probably going to the game this Friday against the Blackhawks. Go You Fucking Cats Go!!! *Hangs head in shame*
Oh yes, the Gong Show, with it's occasional Montreal guest star, the Unknown Comic! An apt description. JT, it would seem, concurs: http://habsloyalist.blogspot.com/2016/01/conspiracies-and-cold-hearts.html
Thx SinM, great to see JT writing her smart, in-depth and professional articles.
Die Bruins. Fact is we are stuck with this team and coach. When the TFS returns all will be in ordung. But the fact will remain a two year old couch could win during the regular season with TFS in net. My beef is why can the coach not recognize that and play a little looser letter Carey make things less hairy?
Is it any coincidence that the X files will be back on tv after the week we have witnessed. I know in my head hockey is a business, a really slimey biz, but in my heart I always thought the CH was better.
Just fucking win...at this point that's all I got kids!...
I'll admit to not being fully aware of Drouin's real value, he was a high pick after all but I don't want to see gCHuck as part of any deal. MT2 has trouble managing young players, so why would he be any better making good use of Drouin? I hope DGMB doesn't panic and acquire him for too muCH.
Why is there always some asshat, some master of the universe who wants to turn down the volume in the midde of a party? The universe is a big place, exert your control on another planet.
"Get off my fucking lawn". ;-)
I see you read widly M :)
John Scott will play at the ASG representing the Pacific as their captain.
thats making rubarb crisp out of rubarb. In the end they did the right thing, but how about his preggers wife? If the CH has any class left they will attend to that.
Indeed. The onus is on MB to remove all distractions from the task at hand: winning hockey games.
the worst player to play in the NHL still played in the NHL if you catch my we are all little fucks drift
Afternoon kids! Anything new in the world?
the M. is tanning in FLA but no reports on his knees.
One of my fave Eagles performances - live Seven Bridges Road - the harmony is incredible. https://youtu.be/t7Li1ez-iQ4 . RIP Glenn
2 of my faves, Tequila Sunrise and Hotel California among so many more, so many faves to CHoose from.
Has MT2 been fired yet?
Is Johns Scott up to face the broons? No? Too bad - could be that right winger gCHuk needs.
I'm sure you guys have all been reading the same crap as I have, one thing that caught my eye ... since Dec. 02 shortly after Carey went down, the Habs have accumulated nine (9), count'em 9 points. The next worse team was Buffalo with 17 points gained over the same time period. Holy fuck and excuse me, but what does that say about this Montreal team? Even with a veteran average goalie would they have been much better? I would say MB better re-think where his "rebuild" is actually at. A season of tanking probably wouldn't be a bad thing. This team needs a serious injection of talent up front.I am happy to report my knees are good, I found a nice municipal golf course to play and should be hitting the links tomorrow. Tan? What tan? Mrs. Maritimer and I went for a nice walk down to the Marina this morning and did a little exploring of our area. I'll keep you posted. GYFHG!!!
Golfer's tan. Enjoy life the M.!
Pad Thai, CHard. Belgian CHocolate(s) in moderation.
homemade pizza on baguette. Forty creek Canadian whiskey not in moderation
Glad to see you're still watCHing the waistline. ;-)
Heh, good shot there the M. On net too!
If we lose like 4-1 tonight, then get embarrassed say 6-1 to the Laff, is that enough to get MT2 fired? I need to know what to root for here
I am in full tank mode. Go for the loss, get rid of EMty and develop some talent. The only thing I wish for is Y destroying Rimjob Rinaldo
I have tix for next Tuesday against the BJs. Maybe I'll be rooting for a new coaCH. Fingers crossed!
oooh, hello CHerylyn with 2 Y's
I think she winked at you!
she winks at a lot of people. at least 21,273
I've got a feeling if this continues to go south, MB will ride it out with eMTy just like the Goat did with Cunneyworth. Probably make a move in the off season. Sorry 29.
NOOOO!!! I believe!!!!
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!! Tank for Therrien!!
Quick fucking whistle.
well we don't look bad, that's something i guess
There is so much wierdness in my world I do not know where to start. But right now I lost Phoniex, had to re insall how is that possible?
Rask never had control of the puck, ever.
Ref was wearing his shit-stained glasses.
gCHuck on the wing with DDD MERDE
Tank for Therrien!
0-1 Tank for Therrien!
No, tanking is the leaf way.
Fucking turnover, again.
how mnany times does our d have to pass to a broon in the slot before they score?
Oh fuck off, the signal that the puck was deflected, then they huddle and decide to call a penalty.KILL IT
broons get the call . quell surpise
Kassian scored for the Oilers.
CaCHe the fucker!!!!!!!!
only down by one. cmon boys you can Tank for Therrien better than that!
ps I really dont think they are tanking. too proud for that. but "subtly not playing well enough for Therrien" doesn't have the same ring
That sounds, lawyerly.
Wow, I don't know what to say about Markov. So many years of greatness and suddenly he's the king of turnovers. Should we rename him Doughboy? Cuz he ain't very Vodkovian these days.
The General ...Malaise
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!!!!!!!
N8 may not return.
Confirmed, N8 won't be back.
Oh well, if he's out long term they can always insert Tinordi...oh wait...
Fuck, Vodkov for elbowing. I was about to say that MT would give him extra ice time now that N8 is out.KILL IT.
Twice tonight PK has had excellent looks from the slot and passed it off to the corner. I think 29 may be onto something. Tank for Therrien may be a thing. T.F.T., (oi, oi, oi)T.F.T., (oi, oi, oi)T.F.T., (oi, oi, oi)T.F.T., (oi, oi, oi)*note - this is not a season tanking mission, just long enough to make sure eMTy has the door hit him in the ass on the way out.
They're all stripped of confidence, fragile psyCHes.
I approve this message.Also, someone call Larry Robinson and Kirk Muller.
And I approve your message moeman.
This is Barberio's 10th game, he'll have to go on waivers if he gets sent down.
He belongs in the top 5-6.
Yep, but you know MT. Now that he scored...he'll consider it.
Spooer tripped PFK then on his knees he passed it to Barberio. No penalty, of course.
Cash it !!
PFK was on the ice for over 3mins.
I just FUCKING knew it, when Sheik gets out to play the puck, it ends up with the opponent. STAY IN YOUR FUCKING CREASE.
Do they go to a dark move theatre?
Here's how the bids are going for the game worn jerseys tonight.http://auctions.nhl.com/iSynApp/showPage.action?sid=1100803&pageName=profilePage&selectedCatId=-1&query=&pgmode3=curbid_desc&qMode=&rc=20&layout=&pgmode1=dennaLaingFund&&rs=40

If Habs don't win, NJ just passed them for a playoff spot.
oh fuck me
Lb out, LBI.
Your move DGMB.
T4T! T4T! T4T!
I just figured it out. General Vodkov must be the Tank Commander - he couldn't actually play as poorly as he has the past few games. Heh, as I'm typing I hear John Bartlett say "Markov turns it over to Vetrano..."
Please cash it.
1:43 left Sheik pulled.
EN by ratface, of all the shit-stained fucks.
HabsFan297:27 PMIf we lose like 4-1 tonight, then get embarrassed say 6-1 to the Laff, is that enough to get MT2 fired? I need to know what to root for herehalfway there! TFT!
Bonsoir les ami(e)s.
Sure, now they call a penalty but let so many go by earlier with 6 secs left. nice knee on knee on Sheik, you fuck.
I guess Vitrano figures Price is out, he should try to injure Sheik before the end of the game.

I see ZK scored for the Oil tonight. Too bad he didn't pass MB's integrity test.
I'm just getting too old to fret over them anymore. With the coaching and GM limitations because of the language issues, it ain't gonna change. I wish Marinaro or us Anglos started screaming about that, because there lies the real truth. Who's in?

I watched a period and a half last night - the game was lost by then - maybe not on the scoreboard but you could see it in the players eyes. Lego was skating and looked good - give him that - Plex...not so much...Congrats to Conan on his first Habs goal- I told you he's not going anywhere and should have made the team out of training camp. Explain something to me please - I'm no MT after all so I probably don't know this...Why would you send down the one player who was consistently scoring for the Habs in December (Carr), replace him with JDLR for one game then sit JDLR in favour of DSP? That is a coaching call I don't understand. And not the first...So the Habs are of until the weekend when they take on the leaf in tranna - that should be a fucking lot of fun...so that gives DGMB 3 games to get his new coach in place and MT a chance to have a sort of a farewell tour of tranna and Columbus - because this is unsustainable people - unless DGMB has no interest in his own job - Therrien has forced his hand. - A head must roll...But for who? And I don't honstly thing that Guy Boucher is the saviour. If he was, I suspect he'd already be coaching somewhere...should be an interesting few days...
MT likes guys who never shoot on net
Fire EMTY today. Hire Cpt Kirk as interm coach with the goal of developing a Stanley CUp winning team. Get a Iphone app to do the French.
lets review. gCHuk cant handle responsiblity, so let DDD get mauled as a first line center instead.Defence first, so design a breakout that has the D pass the puck to the opposing team in the slot.
