I'll start off positive...Go Habs Go! Just fucking Win!!
Mercifully, it is poker night so I won't be tempted to watch the DC Massacre.Just show a bit of pride fellas and try not to get embarrassed.ghg.
I wonder if the BBJ's movie will provide the answer MB won't give us so we can all finally 'understand'.http://deadline.com/2016/02/john-scott-hockey-movie-deal-nhl-all-star-mvp-mitch-albom-mandalay-sports-media-1201707795/
That's actually a pretty decent article about the whole thing. I can see how it can be a movie. My question is...who do they get to play the cameo of DGMB - that slimy, underhanded backwater shylock GM - sitting alone in his office realising he is in a job that's way way too big for him - suddenly the phone rings and it's Buttman - played by Danny DeVito who plays "let's make a deal" with him. H gets him to make a deal by offering him something so amazing you'd only believe it if he told you about it...but he won't tell you about it because he can't...but if he could - for sure you'd understand what it was all about and you'd know how amazing a deal it was...to shaft the hero and bury him on the Rock where he will never see his wife and new born kids ever again? Maybe Bill Murray?
K3X I was thinking they could use cast from the Game of Thrones. Peter Dinklage would obviously play Buttman. The Mountain could play Scott and his beautiful wife by the dragon queen whathername. MB would be played by Littlefinger. eMTY? Maybe Theon Greyjoy. If we need a DDD cameo, maybe the crippled kid Bran. Wait I looked him up - he's 5'11" now. No good. And how the fuck did that happen? Time. Pfff.And they should play as the GoT characters playing these other characters. Artistic licencing should have the movie ending with The Mountain literally crushing Tyrian Lannister.Enjoy the game kids.
Another 20-games for abuse of an official? lolhttps://vine.co/v/irlUxllZ6D7
Because I think their gonna get creamed tonight they will probably win. Might be worth a watch.
I'll have some of what you're having!JK!!
I post a pic of a guy ramming his head into a wall as others look on.J.T. pens a nice long well thought article;http://habsloyalist.blogspot.ca/2016/02/maledictus-anno.html
We all have our own strengths.
Shiek and CHip in.
c f lee!
I was on the phone and that's exactly what I said.
Go Habs Go!!
Cash it.Wilson again.
Habs playing a good game so far.
Juce, we are in sync tonight.
Nice play by Lb in the blue paint.
Yeah, right c f lee.
Penalty shot for KidA.
Kill it, but the Caps should get a retaliatory.
4 on 4
First day back at work (only put in 3 hrs) and a nice big bag of Jelly Belly beans was waiting for me. Dessert.
That's great, means there's some progress. Not sure about the weather where you are but if you were getting freezing rain like here, watch your step.
Its raining here but it isn't freezing.
Sheik is Pricean tonight.
BrianWilde @BWildeCTV 7 mins7 minutes agoSo here are the Habs being shopped that we know of: Galchenyuk Eller Weise Fleischmann.How are they doing? What message are they sending?"I think it's a damn shame that they want to get rid of some of the above...what they hell is going on? I know I'm no hockey genius but I don't understand at all. Where CHip is concerned, I've heard they probably don't want to pay him and he may get paid as a UFA.
I just walked in from the pouring freezing rain and I was drinking heavily. The TV says it's 4-1 Habs. Must be the heavy drinking, that can't be right
The heavy drinking or the score?
The box score indicates gCHuk has 2 goals. MT2 must have done something wrong, or had a stroke, or something
Lego+gCHuk+CHip have played well. Not much dumping and chasing.
So how many of this CHip-Lego-gCHuk line are getting traded?
Well they are putting themselves on display.I hope none of them do but can see CHip being dealt.
All of the above?
So WAS is 1st place in the East. We beat them that means by the transitive property we are 1st place in the East. That's how that works, right?
sorry obviously it's my fault for turning on the TV with the lead
ack. I have jinxed this whole thing
Moey called it.I should never doubt a woman's intuition.
Nice for them to win but that top 3 pick is starting to drift away...
It makes me happy that KidA will be happy, he is so dejected it breaks my heart.
I like her sense of humour.https://twitter.com/myregularface/status/702681142672150528
nice win but same as the M. Could we make up our fucking minds
I am reading the fourth line played more than the Lego line, and eMTy does not put gCHuck out for the hattie on the empty net ffs
Hey! The M, what did I say?
If PatCHes wants to prove he is a great Captian he must break DDD's other foot.
It is now clear that the Habs have found the cure to their slide...DDD must never play another game for the Habs! He's gone and suddenly the PP works again. Lego and GCHuk work well together. The Habs all work well together. Get rid of DDD or just keep him on the IR. Make it happen!!
I'll also go with a hit on MT during practice a la Bourque.
OK, the only explanation I have for last night's win is the Caps took this game against a bottom feeder for granted. All they had to do was show up. Wrong. Overconfidence will bite you in the ass every time.Why all these foolish rumours that gCHuk will be traded? I can't believe that MB would be dumb enough to trade this kid just because fuckhead doesn't like him or won't play him enough. And Lego should also not be traded IMO. Turtleplex yes.
hear hear, tell me plaid should not have had Tom Pettys minutes all season long. The Club du Montreal has become the Office on ice.
Just listening to Bobby Dollas on 690. He is apoplexxanic about gCHuk getting 13 mins. He scores two fucking goals, and gets 3rd line ice time. If this were Columbia some drug lord would have a contract on eMTy.
@Steve upthread, MT doesn't want gCHyuk to shine. Post game reporter commented that Galchenyuk played a good game and MT's answer? 'yes, it was good to have Weise back, they did a good job.' As usual, he refuses to praise a player when the question is directed specifically to said player just as he has done with PFK and Lego and avoids the subject and deflects the question. Galchenyuk played 13.5mons and had 2 goals, but let's mention that Weise was back. Wilde once asked him specifically about Lego and how he shut his opponent down and he went on about how DDD is good defensively and avoided Lego. This guy is joke, nothing but a joke.
as far as I know the Russians never invaded France, so what is the eMTy historical problesm
Follow BrianWilde@BWildeCTV BrianWilde Retweeted Conor McKennaSome will say I am piling on here but wouldn't it have been appreciated to let him see that EN for a hat trick? BrianWilde added,Conor McKenna @mckennaconorAlex Galchenyuk had two goals and 5 shots vs WSH last night. He played 13:31. What a joke.
I watched the game. When this team wins, it does so despite its coach. As I've said before, it's the 1981 Expos Jim Fanning disease.
So, anyone else completely scared shitless of the potential of trade deadline? My brain says nothing will happen (aka "The MB standstill") but part of me fears him doing something really stupid.
What he should do:- replace eMTy and all assistants save Waite, and get anything possible for DSP/Yeast/Vodkov/DDWhat he will do:- get nothing much for Lego and gCHuck and CHip, and declare that trading is hard
Scott - that is exactly what I think will happen. I hear all this talk about Weise and GCHuk and Lego and I keep asking "Why? The Habs suck right now. He'll get 3 bags of pucks" I know that Weise is a UFA but is he really going to get that much more elsewhere? If they made him an offer, throw in some of Dish's poutine, I'm pretty sure he'd take it - as long as they promise to ship that fucking waste of space DDD off on an around the world cockfight with his main man MT
K3X just read your comment and got beer up my nose
Scott, I would keep Vodkov, he just needs a coach who can use him properly. According to the stats, he has ranks 10th among Dmen over the last 4 seasons. Even though he's slowed a bit, he still has the smarts. It isn't right to expect him to keep put up the same ice time as PFK at age 37.http://www.tsn.ca/statistically-speaking-habs-markov-still-productive-1.443359
WSH did exactly what every other top team does. Takes a bottom feeder team lightly. Exactly like the CH does with Buffalo about 100% of the time (when the CH is good, that is).Also, I agree with whoever commented that Lego should stay, he's good in a 3rd line role at CENTER. What's this crazy talk about trading gCHuk?
With fuckhead Empty at the helm, it's like the End of Days.
The really big challenge that lies ahead people is Saturday night. Nothing else matters from here until September...they must beat the leaf! I pray to God, Allah and anyone else worthwhile - let DDD remain out indefintely...
Bab$ denies to the world that the leaf aren't tanking. "Mike Babcock wants to make one thing clear: the Toronto Maple Leafs aren't intentionally losing games.“If you think that I’m not trying to get these guys to play as hard as they can possibly play, you’re missing the boat”
I am sorry to indulge but eMTy actions at the top of the pyramid got me gettimg out the old oven mitts and thinkingaboot how the MAN is jerking the world off.
I know the Habs are/should be sellers but...Remember Yakupov? Isn't he the one who had a lot of success with gCHuk? Just throwing it out there...
on that for a time, likely Lego for Yak, and then eMTY can bench him and trade him away for a bag of pucks
I mentioned the other day Mr. Turd would absolutely HATE the Nail. Has no clue how to play defence, even McLellan couldn't fix him.
I say again and I say again. In the NFL and I am not being cultrual, but the boys cant be trained. So you coach to what you got and win. In the NHL you got to break down the slave and make him obey the system
Not a chance. Eklund has the Habs as odds on favourites to get Yak, so you can take it to the bank that it ain't happening.
I've read this : http://www.tsn.ca/talent/10-non-rentals-who-could-be-on-the-move-1.442936Looking at the price tag and points produced by Lego. He's way behind anyone else on this list. I know it's not only about points production but...
IDK when Lego and big TiTs played well they were the best duo in the NHL
I'd be pissed if they trade Lego.
Me too juce but word on the street is he's the most likely candidate. Ah, how I miss the TiTs...those were the days man!
are we all insane or is eMTy a highly skilled professional one of 30 people on this planet who can coach a billion dollar enterprise. Are we all stupid and will Donald Trump become president. So maybe eMTY was just a harbinger for Trump. Being coached by eMTy is like being in love with a prostitue.So I gotta ask how are things at home for DGMG
At least a working girl can give you the desired result.
Thanks Moeman - looks accurate too
Petry (what's his nickname?) out for the season. Oh well...on to the Bartman!
This probably got asked here but...Anyone of you think that the CH should get Drouin?
For a bag of pucks sure - otherwise he'll be too expensive for an unproven pain in the ass.
For DDD straight up.
Agreed! In fact just give 'em DDD for fuck all
Ok, so I'm not alone. I read RDS comments section here and there and most of "them" want to empty (no pun intended) the team for Drouin. WTF...no. I'd go for DDD - Drouin trade. But then, we'd have to call him either DDDD or 4D.
Intriguing. TAM has no cap space.
Asking price will be way higher than DDD for sure.
My tongue was in my cheek when I typed that btw.Seriously, since Drouin is at this time only a prospect ( I don't give a fuck where he was drafted) and a tainted one at that, I only offer prospects back. If Stevie Y doesn't like what's in NFLD offer one of the Europeans, Reway or Lekhonen.
I know, I was fantasizing (however you write that, if it's even a word, Frenchmen over here as if it wasn't obvious already!).
Yes for sure. The CH needs a pure wool scarf like a hoser needs a beer. This is a once in a lifetime oppourtunity to get a real player not a DDD.
As Hadulf reported, Dish out for the season. Sports hernia. Word is he's been playing with it for weeks. Which again goes to the credibility of the medical staff/management on this team. It's time to face facts. This whole organization is fucked up. Like, really fucked up. It's not just the losing. What's going on with Price? I fear this collapse is just the tip of the iceberg. I fear years of misery. But not the misery we're used to as Habs fans. Really, really bad misery. Like PK demanding a trade, Price never coming back, MT staying till 2022 misery.
why be so optimistic that may be the best case senario
I gotta laugh, I am listen to TSN and the Gm is threatening to move players, What is the threat, pack my suitcase for me I am gone.
For those who may find this interesting.https://www.mangameslost.com/nhl-man-games-lost-february-24-2016/
DDD = Dhttp://www.tsn.ca/montreal-subban-gallagher-brighten-a-subpar-season-1.443424
Sheik deserves a 'C'.
SFU just trying not to make Mandela and Reimer look as bad as they are. Giving a higher grade to a goalie who has never played in the NHL and thrown into a starting role just wouldn't bode well at all.
Fuck the Drouin idea. He was a holdout before finally agreeing 3 months into the season to report to the Mooseheads here in Halifax when he was 16. Now this. I don't know who is behind his decision making process, whether it's overbearing parents or a terrible agent, but who wants that attitude on their team when they've proven nothing. Not me. No thanks. But hey if it happened and he changed and became a solid offensive player, I'd forgive his indiscretions.With all these dmen falling, too bad we don't have a young stud in the organization we can pop into the lineup. Still pissed at the Tinordi handling...
Joe Jackson! RHCP! http://www.ottawabluesfest.ca/
I'm the Man was the first song I learned to play and sing at the same time.
Sweet. Its my fave Jackson tune.
Hawks get Ladd for 1st and Dano.
I like Chip and if we want him back sign him in the summer, doing a deal now is crazy. We will get a least a second if not a first.
And this was the second (although I was really unwittingly only playing the bass line) http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/watch-violent-femmes-scatting-colbert-perform-blister-in-the-sun-20160224
love that song, I only "discovered" it a couple of years ago. And a bookend Lumphttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sj_U6vObUA
By 3 pm Monday we will have another couple of 5/6 Dman and a whole new CHarater fourth line in reserve.
