@ArponBasuMan @HunterZThompson just went right after Bergevin on Galchenyuk playing LW. Bergevin said he's there because he's having success there.I heard him with Melnick, but you need to listen to it.
Mitch asked him if there is anything wrong between Max and PK and he said no. Mitch said is it possible that there is and you just don't know it? DGMB said, no because he definitely would know about it.
Cuz MT2 would tell him?
I just watched the "highlights" from TSN Tradecenre. Jennifer Hedger getting hit in the, uh, chestal region with a T-shirt cannon is the highlight of the month
speaking of chestal regions, Charlize looked spectacular last night, thanks for the pic moe!
She is fetCHing ( and know I never even considered to make the song of the day this; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FC1C4g8YOA4 ). Easily one of the worst songs ever.
Just fucking win...no matter how - Just fucking win!
K3X, are you getting up early to watch the games this week?
Margot Robbie I an pass without reason now
I also want to thank you, DSP. Hope you find a home.
Yes! Thank you DSP. I just saw his presser for the first time, and he seemed truly upset, with tears even.

Coincidences?CHip scores, traded.DSP scores, traded.
I just saw DGMB on TV. Holy fuck Batman I guess I have not seen him in a while, as he is now looking like Tom Hanks in Cast Away. Or a really religious Jew. SHAVE FFS. or at least trim that thing. You're a professional
Bad as Burkie's haircut.
He can't shave, he's sitting shiva for this season.
Works like a charm (needs Chrome);https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/drumpfinator/hcimhbfpiofdihhdnofbdlhjcmjopilp
It really works!! I love it. Now we just need an eMTy-nator!
Meh, whatever. I'm indifferent to all the moves, but I guess they do open up cap space this summer. Think of all the useless 4th line plugs that money can buy!The comments that bothered me at the press conferences (after reading some) are the ones regarding Galchenyuk staying at wing and needing the draft to build the team. Tells me MB still doesn't understand what's going on. I mean, sure good draft picks are great. But you're really going to throw away a prime year or two of your core players to get a slightly better pick? Anyway, I should know better than to get my hopes up but the Sharks played last night and a win combined with a Philthy loss would put the Habs in a tie for 9th, 3/5 points out of 8th depending on whether the Pens win. I'm not saying it's going to happen, just stating the facts. Knowing them they'll get swept in California now that they teased us sufficiently. I should be able to join live since I'm done class at 11pm EST, but I'm often dragged out to long lunches with the young Chinese lady students. No one looks sexy slurping noodles, though.
Order a burger.
leaf are giving the Bolts all they can handle, so far.
Regarding MB looking like Tom Hanks, I happened to tune in to catch the highlights just as the MB presser was being shown. The guys at TSN (or was it SN who the fuck knows) wondered if he consulted Wilson before making his moves. Would explain a few things actually.
I'm sticking to my alien brain takeover theory myself.
Oh and moe,+34C for the sideboob.
Bonus tan line because, California.
Ahem.When you have a chance, bookmark this, grab a coffee or a fave beverage, think about it/this and help a very good friend;http://allenmendelsohn.com/2016/02/do-we-have-internet-freedom-in-canada/I hear that for the best comment, there may be a raffle for one of those neato half+half jerseys (pre-worn, NTTIAWWT!).
yes! or if you decline the half-half jersey, I have meth
that idiot Steve is still free so I guess we are good.
2-0 TAM. They are playing their back-up goalie. All teams do vs. the leaf. Helps their (s)tank.
OK had a quick nap so I can maybe watch a period of the ALL NEW HABS!!! (same as the old Habs...)
R.I.P. George Kennedy.
God was he awesome in various Naked Guns. Love when great dramatic actors do comedy. RIP.
Also, Airport.Loved 'Cool Hand Luke' great performance opposite Paul Newman.
The edgar sanction with clint was also tops
Nothing against Mike Brown as a person but I never liked this style-type of hockey. Having said that he remains a soup can, so nickname him either Soup or Can but I'll be surprised he gets a point.
Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!
Bergevin needs to remember that if you can’t accept that you have a bad employee then you yourself become the bad employee. http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/call-of-the-wilde-state-of-the-union-address-1.2798369
Does he follow the Habs somehow???
GYFHG! I believe! kinda sorta maybe
FWIW, I attended a Shark vs. Oilers game just after the SJ arena first opened, 1994. One of the first spectacularly modern venues. Weirdest thing were the game rule descriptions during timeouts (e.g., this is an icing, ref call, etc.) Also took in a game at the very old Cow Palace before the team moved.
Kinda had to 'work' a bit between periods in the concourse. We were demoing QTVR hockey cards.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QuickTime_VR
I like the Sharks black shorts. Good look
Sure, just leave Joe Thornton alone in front of the net. He had time for a coffee before he scored that
How many years will it take McM to have a Thornton/DGMB hipster beard?
If Vlasic was a Hab he'd be nicked 'Dill'.
!!!!No idea how that went in
Love it when goals aren't waived off!
Superplexxxe, and Thorton and DGMB both are extra's in the Revanant sequel.
Hopefully O-man is having FHFun slurping noodles*.
KidA gets the goal.
Left-over roast pork sandwiches.
Pea soup. Bretons. Tea. Advil.
Sheik doing the protecting
SJ does not dump and chase.
could see that coming, they are skating rings around us
ESPN.com has the shots 12-6 SJ. I think that's an understatement
SO MANY GIVEAWAYS
Better Call Saul is up going to exercise some freedom. gCHuck is a threat to score every second he is on the ice, lets keep him under 12 min okay?
OK kids I gotta be up early to protect the internet. I turn over commenting duties to Oman once he returns from the slurping Asian ladies
Wear some briefs.
Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!
Barely hanging on kidz.
Well, it's close, I guess.
why does it look like you spilled noodles on you
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!!
3-2 going into the 3rd, now 5-2 less than 4 mins in.
And that's that. I don't know why I get my hopes up anymore.
I can't fucking stand the new gamecenter. Watching on delay or live, the 3rd period is just one big freeze. Last half of second and intermission went off without a hitch, literally 10 seconds into the 3rd it freezes, need to refresh everything (which takes forever) and here we go again.
Just to give an idea, just got it sort of working. aaaaaaaaaaaaand just as I type that it freezes again. Great way to waste money.
6-3, 5:10 left in the game.
That's it for me, I have to do robot puzzles now, no patience for it. G'night Oman.
I've seen a total of about 37 seconds of this period, which I guess is a good thing. Gamecenter is as competent as our Montreal Canadiens. I wonder if these guys actually feel anything after shitting the bed like this? Or do they just collect their 6/7 figure paycheques and go blow coke on the beach? Please Price, stay away from this mess.
tanks for tankinghttp://www.msn.com/en-ca/lifestyle/relationships/the-complete-history-of-leonardo-dicaprios-model-filled-love-life/ss-BBq9Pal?ocid=iehp#image=19
I mentioned on the last thread that during Bergevin's interview one of the reporters asked him what direction the team was going. His reply: "The right one."Good to know.I haven't had any expectations for this bunch after Price went down and that fucking buffoon still behind the bench. Management has been tanking for a while, unlike the leaf the Habs are pretending not to, to save some dignity.As Brian Wilde has mentioned several times, in 4 years Bergevin has done nothing to improve the top 6 but has accumulated 12 3rd and 4th line plugs. C'mon Bergy, get out of the dumpster and give Peter Chiarelli a call. You both have lots of what each other needs.
why worry but its still so fucked up that the potenial franchise player gets 10 to 12 min a night despite the fact he is consistantly the best skater on the ice
Looks like the M has been double dippingThe_Rocket_ReturnsMARCH 1, 2016 AT 8:09 AMPaul Byron, waving at his backchecks like a Wal-Mart greeter to the tune of two goals against, newly signed to a three-year contract.Mike Brown, who couldn’t hack it in Vancouver, Toronto or Edmonton, chasing the puck like a St. Bernard running after cars.Jacob De La Rose, who can probably find ways to turn a 3-on-1 into a 1-on-3, playing so badly that Therrien — who has “JDLR” tattooed in Gothic script just above his DD-in-a-heart tattoo — actually demoted him.Philip Danault … wait, he played? Funny, couldn’t tell.Victor Bartley and Mark Barberio getting turned into turnstiles.This, my friends, is the glory of Marc Bergevin. Look upon it and despair …… and yet some people, despite the fact that the Habs have six or maybe eight decent players, will blame those guys rather than the collection of concrete blocks they have to drag around. Let’s trade Plekanec! Eller! Pacioretty! Because then we can have a team composed entirely of fourth-liners and rejects.
Twasn't me but I like it!!I couldn't stay awake that late anyway...
I suppose it was because of how bad the Goat was that when DGMB came on board I was incredibly gung ho in favour of him He joined from Chicago so he obviously knew what he was doing - they had won the Cup and would again since. But alas I now fear I am wrong. I watched his presser yesterday and I had horrible deja vu of the Goat - only wit a better beard. Mr "It's on me" is going to talk himself out of a job pretty soon. He takes great pride in talking about signing someone who coldn't cut it in NJ an to picking up SJ's reject because he's a better skater than the last reject he's buried on the Rock. Anyone with a burning passion for the CH is doomed to be shipped away before long - and that includes PFK. The Habs kept it close for 2 periods last night but then ran out of gas. "No Excuses" is the slogan over the dressing room door...WTF happened to that? How could they be so lifeless? Someone pointed out on the thread here somewhere that the Sharks don't dump and chase...Clearly for good reason. There was no excuse for playing like that last night. Habs can't afford to go 0-California - DGMB still thinks that there is a shot at the post season. He should be fucking sacked just for that statement alone - shows he's as fucking delusional as the fucking useless coach he's backing. There is no doubt that Geoff Molson needs to wake the fuck up and do something...this season is fucked - but just do something before we go through another summer of discontent...please...
Did we win?
NOTE FOR JUCEJuce I have looked in to the settings for the comments on the blog. You should not be getting the word puzzles or whatever to post a comment. I am not sure what's going on, I will continue to look into it.Really sorry about that
No worries, HF29 it's not your fault.
I looked also, nothing there to change/update.juce, are you using a VPN?
No, I'm not using a VPN either.
I most always have to solve a puzzle before blogger will let me post a reply. I assumed since I don't have a fancy avatar and reply under "Name/URL" it thinks I'm a troll of some kind.I do have a Google account can I post under that ID somehow?
Yup, I use one of my Google accounts for our blog. No issues.
I use google also. I was thinking that maybe since some of my posts are 'repetitive' - my CHeering - it thinks I'm a 'robot' and blogger must have been invented by a leaf. However, that is not the case for the Maritimer.
I guess excuses are all the craze because that seems to be all that DGMB and his sidekick repeat as rote this season. MT's latest? "we are a young team" That must really eat him to the core since he has no clue on how to use / treat young players. Always passing the blame and using excuses when he should look in the fucking mirror and admit he's nothing but a failure and a re-tread. Obviously the players on the bench must be looking at his player selections / favouritism and shake their heads. As for DGMB supporting MT for playing gCHyuk at wing, well the stats prove otherwise.According to tweets by Andrew Berkshire:Galchenyuk was producing 2.1 points/60, and a 54.3% Corsi at centre.On the wing, he's producing 1.5 points/60, and a 51.8% Corsi.There just isn't ANY basis whatsoever for Bergevin's excuse for keeping Galchenyuk on the wing.The extra production Galchenyuk is seeing now has come from more time on the PP, where he's played wing all year. At ES, he's better at C.Galchenyuk's penalty differential was also three times better at centre than on the wing.Just to clarify, the idea that Bergevin pushed to @HunterZThompson that Galchenyuk is having success now and wasn't at centre is grade A BS.What happened to DGMB's 'you build from the draft' and 'big centres aren't available, you can only get them if you draft them because the teams that have them, keep them'? Well he drafted him as a centre didn't he? The only reason possible is the name on the back of the jersey and gCHyuk's doesn't start with 'D'. And don't tell me that they don't know about the stats, didn't they hire a stats guy?
Once gCHuk blows a backcheck assignment at center, Therrien sees red and immediately puts him back on the wing. Desharnais can blow them all night long and Empty will just pat his little DD heart tattoo and under his breath whisper "mon cher".
Hey! It works! Now you know who I am. I'll have to be careful what I say...
Oh well, moe outed me years ago when he linked the story about me in the Gazette when I did my last road trip to the Bell Center.
De nada!! ;-)
"...Desharnais can blow them all night long" I could go there but I'm a lady.
You'll aways be "The Maritimer" to me Glenn!
M you should get a clever nom du plume like me. Steve, even Burka could not get under my viel. Call yourself Glenn>)
RTe-watched the DGMB presser on H I/O - I got nothing...He doesn't even talk a good game any more. And the thing that I'm getting - the feeling I can't shake - and it really upsets me - is that I don't believe a word he is saying. Mrs. K3X and I have raised 4 kids - 2 are late teens and 2 are early teens - and I think I'm a pretty decent judge of when someone is lying to me - thankfully my kids have not done very much of it - but I will never forget the feelings I have had inside me when I knew that they were telling me a lie - it hurts and it makes me very angry. You feel disappointment that they don't respect me enough and value my importance in their being enough to tell me the truth. How dare they! Without me they wouldn't be here and now they think they can tell me a lie...I don't think so! You lose a little bit ofrespect for your own child when/if they lie to you. There is a sense that you have to question everything they say to you - and that lasts a long time. You watch them and test them and they have to prove themselves to you. When they do - you are happy but you remain wary that it can happen again. You hope it doesn't... When I look at DGMB when he is talking and I feel exactly the same way. He's been dishonest. He's lied. He's not told me the truth. I do not trust him. How dare he!
it the unessecary lies that upset me. Tell us why gCHuck is getting 12 min, and not playing center? Tell us what makes eMTy good in a foxhole? Tell us your best friend is not a volleyball.
whew, I thought maybe he had been caught with three strippers. We know that two will not get you suspended.
You know what I hate about Sports 690. All the goofy talk about food and non sports crap. We are not 12 year old valley girls FFS. You know what I hate about Les Habs, le eMTy. I blame Harper, its the old ying and yang, there is always going to be some high profile asshole in charge.
Vodkov named to Team Russia roster but no mention of it on featured article on tsn.
Speculation yesterday on 690 that Bargain Bergy traded away CHip and DSP because they were two of PFK's best buds. The old divide, isolate and conquer method.
I was listening too. Strange that all this 'trouble' in the room arises just before the meaningless WC rosters are to be set - it's all in the timing I guess. RDS does not have him on their projected roster either and we all know how $Babs feels about him and with DGMB part of the management I think that will also work against him. I also can't help but feel that DGMB and MT are none too please about being excluded and totally in the dark when PFK held a press conference, made the donation to the Children's hospital and were totally blind-sided and felt slighted and upstaged. Remember also, that DGMB had all individual current player pictures - even those of TFS - removed and replaced but they have absolutely no control over such external activities which they probably feel made him 'bigger' than the team. He did something positive, he didn't party or embarrass them by crashing his truck or caught on film partying in any way so they can't scold him or suspend him for it. So much for all the 'character' preaching they do because PFK has just that.
I also think if they could find a way to pin THEIR epic collapse of this team on PFK, they would.
Becuase it looks like no Canadian team will make the playoffs, there will be huge focus on this tranna pissing contest. Dickwad from tranna hates PFK so he won't be selecte first. he'll be a mercy piuck but critiqued because of his defensive weakness. The two fucking clods who run the Habs won't say fuck all because they hate him for being black and better than any other player on their team, and all anyone will want to talk about is how overrated one of the best defencemen in the game today is. TFS shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath as team Canada - but he will - and to be honest - it's a fucking made up tourney created by the SFU and Buttman and it has absolutely no credibility. Anyone remember anything about the last one? When was that again (without looking it up!...) I thought so!
Nylander got 19 minutes playing for Babkook against the Lightning. I hope he doesn't ruin the kid.
As far as gCHuk only getting 12 minutes a game well, Empty is saving those minutes for DDD when he comes back so he can double shift him.
Final comment (for now) looks like the AHL team will miss the playoffs for the 4th straight year in a row. How bad a coach is LeEmptier? Is there no talent down there either? Looks like it's going to take a lot longer than 5 years to to turn this ship around.
Wilde is sitting in for Marinaro today, should be interesting.
I'd like to see him call out Murphy for his 'insight' about the goings on in the Habs room when he's on today.
Oops, make that Thursday, I lost a day somewhere.
More bad Karma. The US will be led by either Trump or Clinton. Ratface already has 32 goals this year.
PFK with Snoop! That will brighten the moodhttps://twitter.com/SnoopDogg/status/704852470460248064Of course the haters will say... a lot of shit
Yep, that's the topic on 690, said it's the 'old school, ,stay humble guard' that exists in the NHL.
Another moan - DGMB calls up Ellis and MT sits him. Why? WTF?
There were rumors of a rift in the Montreal dressing room between Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban."No, there's nothing like that going on. Fans there and people from the outside are just looking for maybe a reason why that slumps was going on. That was one of the closest rooms I've ever been in. There's nothing like that going on."http://www.nj.com/devils/index.ssf/2016/03/devante_smith-pelly_says_hes_happy_to_be_with_the.html
The Mexicant is now a Senaturd.
He'll soon have all 30 NHL sweaters in his closet.
