In my Top 10 all time favourite artists I’d list David Bowie at number 5. Lucky him. Seriously and in respect to his artistry, Bowie was nonpareil, especially live. He was glamorous, gorgeous, had a seriously sexy voice, changed the music scene more than once and influenced many a punk, funk, hip hopper and rock n’ roller. Few can lay that claim. He had a Hendrix-Marley-Morrison-Strummer cool vibe but he was unique above all.A sexy music memory - I dated a fabulously fine frisky feline a couple of years back. She knew her music, especially all things UK. We were about the same age, she was maybe two years older but like me, did not look or act her age at all (why should we?). One fantastically fun wintry weekend, my gorgeous gal pal decided to cook up a storm. Dressed in a cute cotton girly thing (sometimes I’m lost for words and breathe) she danced in the kitchen whilst whipping up breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Lots of Bowie was played. It was golden. Thanks David.~~~The letter above is from Brian Eno.
Outstanding Moeman! Like the man himself - beyond words! RIP
I can be a Hero if just for one day, thank you Moeman for your perspective
In High School where it seems with the advent of facebook life ends these days I was a bit of a wild lad. One day me and my grade nine mates spot this Dude with Orange hair and platform glam. This was in northern Ontario 1972. Most people in the school thought he was a freak, he ended up being best man at my wedding ten years later.
Back to hockey - I read this tweet by Brian Wilde - A lot of what he says make some sense...Top 10 Solutions For The Habs Problems. dlvr.it/DHJfrJ Essentially 7 points that re-iterate that Michel Therrien is a fucking moron and needs to be replaced as soon as possible, two saying that DGMB needs to up his game and 1 recommending a bit of prayer and patience.
K3x there are no simple solutions. The CH are a metephor for the world. Its hard to be a great power anymore
Hockey is a very simple game. Pass the puck between team mates, shoot the puck at the goal and don't let the goalie catch the puck. Get the best guys you can to do that over and over again and you win, as long as you don't let the other team do it more than you do
I read that also, Wilde knows his stuff and I like listening to him on the radio because he says more than he can on TV where he has to be somewhat neutral. He also strikes me as a genuine good person. Before the Chanel incident broke, he was aware of it but never revealed it. On a previous segment discussing Drouin and who would have to go the other way, he said something like 'I know the organisation may have somewhat soured on Galchenyuk but it would be crazy to trade him for 'potentiel', when asked it he meant his play, he just said, no...you've seen him play. When asked about it after the news broke, he said he would not betray a confidence and he yes, it would be a breaking story, but I won't be that guy just to make a headline. Just an example, but there have been many examples where his human side clearly comes out. He's also been a big Lego supporter.
men like to fuck women, sorry its not an issue on the ice
Wilde is pretty on-the-mark in his assessment. I think MB is simply not finding that RW anywhere to plug in. And as Boone wrote, none of the seats reserved for pro scouts were filled at last night's game. The people MB has floated as possible to get are not on anyone else's wish list right now.But don't worry, DeLaRose will fix everything!
DLR can skate and hit, in todays NHL you cant wish for much more
Just heard that Carr has been sent to St. John's for JDLR - What the fuck is going on? Who's gonna score our goals now that he's gone? (...checks stats...) Oh look - 24 games, 2 goals and 7 assists - setting Newfoundland on fucking fire! Our problems are solved!!! Jesus Christ! You can't make this shit up any more boys and girls!!
May MT forgets which market he coaches in, maybe he thinks he's in Toronto where any move a coach makes is just sunshine and lollipops because those fans don't know their hockey.
speaking of Wilde, he's on now.
Says he's a little baffled about Auto, you bring up a guy who has less goals in a lower league and send down a guy who has more goals in a higher league.
Looking at the stats on the Habs site, only 3 players have a higher S% than Carr. He has only played 17 games. OK - he is -2 but still - his line and his effort has been one of the very few highlights of the past month and half. Makes no sense to me...JDLR is -7. Carr has taken more SOG in 17 NHL ga,es than JDLR has taken in 30 AHL games...So unless there is a trade a foot, the Habs don't actually need a non producing 4th line centreman
Emty is obiously assembling a team for the Zombie Apoclyse which I fear is at our doorstep. You think all the rich fucks in this world will let us live when robots can servve the basic needs, and we are are unsustanalbe on a footprint printed by google maps.
Opposing teams have got to stop coming in here all excited to play in front of such a great crowd. Homeboys (Fleury, Crawford, for example) have to stop coming in here and putting it all out like it's the fourth round of the playoffs.And our veterans are not the sort who have the experience to grab a team that forgot how to win and show them The Way. Pleks? Patches? Vodkov? Nyet. They know what they have seen in the past. When the wheels fall off, keep puttering around without making too much noise. Wait until the coach is changed or the GM panics and sends you somewhere less stressful to play and then the game will be fun again.That is what happened with teams under Carbo, Martin -- shit, even Vigneault and MT1.0Losing is our Way. Not quite being good enough. Agent 86: "Missed it by that much."Control, meet CHAOS
we need agent 99 so much
Very beautiful SF, moe.
Now for the ugly.After today's announcements, I don't know how anyone can defend MT or MB as competent. This team is in a mess again. I thought we were over that. Sad.
So Galchenyuk will go back to wing playing with DDD. That's what happens with so many questioning him why DDD gets more ice time than Galchenyuk.
Wow, Dave Stubbs no longer with the Montreal Gazette, he will be an historian for the NHL. Congrats to you Dave, keep the bowties front and centre.
BREAKING per 98.5 Tinordi traded to Coyotes.

Are YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??????? JOHN SCOTT ????????????? I HOPE THIS IS JUST A RUMOUR

Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie 1m1 minute agoARI-MTL trade call is in works. Tinordi to ARI and return expected to be John Scott and Stefan Elliott.Another Dman??? This makes no fucking sense at all.
Seems now that Eliott already flipped?
Are you fucking kidding...but of course - it's all about defenceman for dgmb...shakes head, downs another ale...
John Scott???!???Does that mean he takes PK's spot for the All Star game??
He'll be his captain...lol
Isn't TB looking for help on D? Maybe Stefan Elliott is for Drouin.
Pending trade call, NSH sending Victor Bartley to MTL for Stefan Elliott. But not a done deal yet.Another Dman???
BrianWilde @BWildeCTV 1m1 minute agoThis is too funny. So you hate the Elliott kid? Don't worry. They're flipping him for another kid you won't care for either. #GoodTimes
Did "The Goat" just come back to the Habs to make this trade??
Umm, does MB know that John Scott isn't an actual All-Star? I will wait to see what transpires before commenting again.
Shit. It's official http://canadiens.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=797849
John Scott: 12/18/2015 Placed on waivers by the Arizona Coyotes.Stefan Elliott: 1/14/2016 Placed on waivers by the Arizona Coyotes.Victor Bartley: 11/29/2015 Placed on waivers by the Nashville Predators.And this took weeks to engineer, per Darren Dreger???????
Dreger is a pud..
I honestly thought Scott was a D-man. Now this trade makes perfect sense. Fucking DGMB is a genius! The Habs have been screaming out for a part time useless piece of shit joke of an "all star" since Gomez left but one with more size - enter John Scott. Watch out mutherfucker we're coming to q city near you! At least pfk gets th all star break to rest up now
FEAR THE COLLAPSE PEOPLE!what kills me is that this deal took "weeks" to put together. Weeks! For this!
Getting two bags of pucks to weigh out the same takes some doing...
oh and bon vendredi sexxxy mes ami(e)s! moe your work is (allad)insane
Thanks and nice one!
Finds bottle of bourbon ...
Thanks for your time as a Hab Tintin. Have a great career but please don't become a stuD-man, ah fuck it, win a Norris.
So long Tinner...we hardly knew ya...
less than a bag of pucks for a traded up 22 overall first pick OMGhttp://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/hockey/canadiens-send-tinordi-to-coyotes-for-tough-guy-scott-in-three-team-deal/article28225066/
I've got to wonder what/if Rick Dudley thinks this is a one-sided deal. Totally fucking weird.
I am so confused right now. I'm sure before the weekend is over, other shit will happen that makes us say "OH, that makes sense." Because right now I am at a total loss. How is a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th round pick for Tinordi not better than this, which I imagine a team like Edmonton would be happy to give. Rrrr,salary cap,mmmm yeah. Fuck.
I agree Pad...everyone ends up in the minors. Habs gain a contract space - whatever that means- but no scoring - which is what they need. I am fast losing patience with DGMB. Every move he makes sends us further from the cup. And they have sent all their goal scores down to St. John's. Does Scott still play in the all star exhibition? Something else needs to happen but everyone in the NHL has to stop laughing long enough to pick up the phone if DGMB calls...
Nickname suggestion for Scott.kessel once tried to CHop him down + he's really big*lumberjack big + we don't care = Python or Monty
monty works for me cause this trade was a joke
Imagine being Timmins and drafting Tinordi and McDonaugh, because 'big skilled D-men'.
MT is a fucking 'player killer'. If any kid has any hopes of making the NHL DO NOT REPORT TO THE HABS IF THEY DRAFT YOU.There just has to be something else to this, there HAS to be. Could it be that DGMB just wanted to give Tinordi a chance to play? Now they recalled Bartley has been called up....is there another move?
This team has more moves than James Brown. The hardest working team in the NHL
Greg Wyshynski ✔ @wyshynskiWho's going to break the news to Subban that he's out of the All-Star Game because John Scott is a Hab? #Canadiens #NHLGO FUCK YOURSELF YOU LEAF SUCKING PRICK
Well said. That POS made me coin PFUCK YOU!
I am hearing that the NHL and Yotes both asked Scott not to attend the ASG .he told them to fuck off so the Yotes sent him to the minors. If the HAbs keep him on the rock he won't be at the game. Buttman owes us big time!
You're right, but good luck collecting that debt.
Renaud Lavoie @renlavoietva 13m13 minutes ago#canadiens recall Victor Bartley. They want to see what he can do. Told he's a D who's playing like Francis Bouillon. #tvasports
Renaud Lavoie @renlavoietva 2m2 minutes agoJohn Scott won't play in MTL at all. It's really the Coyotes who insisted to include him in a trade. They didn't want to pay him in the AHL.BrianWilde @BWildeCTV 2m2 minutes agoThe Habs remain committed to acquiring a right winger but this is the end of that deal. It's not a precursor to more. ....................So much for me thinking there was more to it. BrianWilde @BWildeCTV 4m4 minutes agoThis is hard to hear for Habs fans but this was the market for Tinordi. They got a player for the AHL instead of losing in waivers.
All the best to you TinTin, hope you make a name for yourself - in a good way, of course.
Paddy was asking about 69 and we loose a six foot nine d man. Maybe if he questioned 52 we could lose DDD.
Hey sportsfans, just when you thought all was lost, there are two new episodes of THe Exapanse on line.

Y and Ghetto
MT blames losing streak on goaltending, MB immediately makes trade for goaltender. MT says Habs intimidated by Pens, two youngsters sent down to minors and big idiot traded for one game later. I think we're learning who's really calling the shots here. Only positive is that Tinner might finally get a chance. Good for him, and all the best. As a fan you go through the ups and downs. But I'm finding it increasingly difficult to give a shit anymore. What a mess this once proud organization has become.
What NHL 2016 thinks of this trade:http://imgur.com/ZCsHxqd"This proposal in front of me is almost insulting." And this was before those two guys were waived by ARI.
Morning all...didn't sleep well last night - dreamt thet DGMB started trading away prospects for bags of pucks and sending the goal scorers on the team to the minors, Then I woke up with a fright...checks papers....OH MY GOD IT WASNT A DREAM. IT REALLY DID HAPPEN!
Well, the Habs now occupy the last wilcard spot with 49 pts the Canes lagging by 1 pts with 48 pts. Broons hold the 1st wildcard spot tied @ 46 with a game in hand and play the leaf next.
DGMB should've put the CH's class ahead of accepting Scott. Optics are out of whack.
