    Just show a bit of pride fellas and try not to get embarrassed.

  3. I wonder if the BBJ's movie will provide the answer MB won't give us so we can all finally 'understand'.

    1. 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?

    2. 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.

    So 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.

  20. 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

  30. nice win but same as the M. Could we make up our fucking minds

  31. 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

  32. Hey! The M, what did I say?

  33. If PatCHes wants to prove he is a great Captian he must break DDD's other foot.

    ReplyDelete
  34. 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!!

  35. the Maritimer7:09 AM

    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.

  36. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  37. @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.

  39. 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.

  40. 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.

    1. What he should do:
      - replace eMTy and all assistants save Waite, and get anything possible for DSP/Yeast/Vodkov/DD
      What he will do:
      - get nothing much for Lego and gCHuck and CHip, and declare that trading is hard

      Delete
    2. 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

    3. K3X just read your comment and got beer up my nose

    4. 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.

  41. 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?

    3. 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

    4. 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.

  47. 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.

      I'd go for DDD - Drouin trade. But then, we'd have to call him either DDDD or 4D.

      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.

    9. 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.

  51. 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.

  55. 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...
