Well tonight i'll give FTWD another go. I wasn't too impressed with season 1.29 - I knew there was a reason I wasn't supposed to like Dustin. A little coke? Pff. Didn't Grant Fuhr help Gretzky win at least a couple of those cups with the aid of a little bit o' powder? A light 'dust'ing of snow perhaps? Anyway, happy for this Willett fella - never heard of him but seems legitimately like a nice guy. Spieth doesn't come off that way, but i think it's just because he's so damned focused on his game.Well soon time to pick my playoff bracket...tough as that will be. Good thing is i won't be tempted to pick the Habs to go all the way.
I am with you Paddy on FTWD. TWD for the ladies.
I love that cartoon of the frog. Takes me back years and years! "Hello my baby, Hello my honey, Hello my rag time gal, send me a kiss by wire. Baby my heart's on fire..." I can hear the song in my head as I type this...sure beats the feeling of doom I have thinking about today's presser. I fear it will be a lot of excuses. The over/under on use of the word Inury/injuries is 11. I'm going to go over...anyone know what time this shitshow starts?
Found the answer - looks like a 1.30 pm start for the presser - 18:30 BST Jack Todd has a pretty interesting take on the season in today's paper...http://dld.bz/eyQcr
RIP Mr. Nice - Howard Marks - Fuck Cancer
And this...RIP Lady Melinda Rose Woodward - Wife of Sir Tom Jones - Fuck Cancer!
R.I.P. Ed Snider.
R.I.P. to all.
I wouldn't waste 5 seconds listening to BBB today. It's predictable what will be said: "Too many injuries and my coach will be back." I don't want to hear it. I'm sure he and Molson have anticipated all the questions (actually, they may have been sent in advance by the press) and have all the scripted replies ready.
I'm not expecting much we haven't heard already.
I want to see him say it all with a straight face! We all know that no media journalist interested in covering the Habs next season will call him out on anything. It will all be a lot of politely worded, open ended questions that give him a lot of wiggle room in order to not have to answer anything tough...
second guessing not allowed
So GCHYUK played the last 10 games with a broken finger on his right hand. I am even more impressed with him. Now I know why his TOI was kept down. MT was saving him!
Yep, gave him more time with the broken finger than without. Only thing MT saving was himself. Post game he claimed gCHyuk wasn't ready, they brought him along in a way that wouldn't ruin his confidence because you have to be careful with a young player, it's a process...yada, yada, yada.No one believes that crap, even when asked on AC, Carbonneau disagreed with that statement.
I think every player in the organization should be spending two hours a day practicing the one time snap shot at a plywood goalies. The squid practice.
"Molson Bergevin Therrien all at the same time at 1:30 today." Is this supposed to show us their united?
Basu " That's unusual. And potentially awkward."
??? I suppose they were going to bring PleXXX and DDD and Mateau too but the table only sits three.
All three of them together tell me what we already know, MT will be back with full management support and we are fucked next season again.
Maybe they will surprise us all and announce that MT is getting a kick upstairs in recognition of his outstanding work with the youngsters. New director in charge of player development...bwahahahahahahah!!
"Аrpon Basu @ArponBasu 2m2 minutes agoMax Pacioretty says he voted for Subban for the King Clancy. I can't believe I'm tweeting this."PFK also said he voted for PatCHes.
Bravo moeman - one of the best animated shorts of all time. Quite a contrast with the 2015-16 Canadiens.
One of my faves.
Gallagher says he's heard all the speculation regarding relationships with Subban and says he's very important to the team and not to buy it
Seriously, Geoff should announce he is selling the team ...to somebody with standards.
On second thought, have you tasted a Molson beer product recently? Why should I be surprised.
Pacioretty: "We're not a team that's gonna to win with skill" ...hey Cap, why not exactly? Or is this just more evidence of how much he has bought in with the eMTy philosophy?
Yotes bag their GM.
Condon to play for USA at the worlds in Russia
Eric Engels @EricEngels 33m33 minutes agoPacioretty says he has come out before and said specuation about supposed feud with Subban was ridiculous but somehow it wasn't published...“It doesn’t matter what I say. Someone’s going to have an opinion on what’s true or what’s not...It’s a lose-lose situation."-Pacioretty
Molson, BBB and Empty all together eh?Fine. GET SOME FUCKING PLAYERS THEN!!!!! MOST OF YOUR TEAM IS SHIT!!!!!
BrianWilde @BWildeCTV 3m3 minutes agoYou know what is happening at 1:30. We all know it. The entire season is on Price's knee. That's all they'll repeat no matter what.
"Dear fans,It has been a tough year. As a fan, I find that the results of our team were disappointing. There are likely many reasons that explain what happened, but I am not interested in excuses. I am interested in making our team better.As far as what to expect in the off-season, I will let our hockey operations team, led by Marc Bergevin and Michel Therrien, detail these in due time. When you have a disappointing season like the one we just had, no stone can be left unturned in looking for ways to improve. You have my full commitment that we will do everything possible to improve our team.This being said, despite subpar results this season, stability in our approach remains the focus. The mark of all good organizations in sports is stability and long-term vision. I remain convinced that we have a strong foundation of core players and veterans, as well as younger players with promising futures.Like you, I am a fan of this legendary organization. I hear your frustrations and I read your tweets after a loss. I share your elation and feel the same thrills when we succeed. I know how important it is to have a winning team in this city. You demand and deserve better. I guarantee that we will do everything in our power to honour this and continue building the great heritage of the Montreal Canadiens.This year we hit a bump in the road. I see this as an opportunity to become stronger, better, and more prepared for the future.On behalf of our entire organization, I wish to thank you for your continued support, your loyalty, your passion and for being the best fans in the world. See you next season!"
So, Molson sets the tone in advance of the presser that he will go with the status quo. Does he really believe that a 'heads-up' that he supports MB and the return of MT will pacify one of the most hockey-knowledgeable fan basis in the league who see as plain as the nose on their faces that MT has to go? "...your passion and for being the best fans in the world. See you next season!" That to me, sounds just like Bettman when he said during the lockout "we have the most passionate fans in the world" aka, see you next year 'suckers'
And we will continue to brew bland, high-on-calorie, low-on-flavour beer as well!
15 years after 911 the Mericans say the same thing.
You can watch the presser live here http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/video?playlistId=1.2854062
I don't give a damn what they will say, I believe that there is absolutely no reason, given the talent of this team, that would have lead them to such a collapse without TFS other than coaching. The coach is entirely responsible and any other franchise would not have tolerated it by brining that same coach back the next season. Yes, the absence of TFS masked some flaws but they are not as bad as the record shows. Pride used to be the mantra the CH, now it is shame...shame on the entire organization for trying to bamboozle the fans and shame for taking us to be lemmings, this is not the leafs and just because it worked for them since 1967 doesn't mean you should bring the CH down to their level.
Presser so far. Making trades is hard. Check.
Clean shaven. CHeck.
Same coaching staff minus Ramsay. Yuck.
DGMB's PFK answer is soft. Molson backs up the softness.
Marinaro CHallenges MT2 on the PP question. Waffling.
Marinaro CHallenges MT2 on the gCHuk ice time question. Waffling.
My phone rang so I missed some stuff. Now a lame answer by MT about gCHuk. Protecking Alex. Bullshit.
Hey, MT2, we don't play vs. Weber that often yet we played vs. Phaneuf. Nice try.
DGMB says MT2 dishes 'tough love' and suggests that PFK has progressed because of MT2. I guess we are experiencing this 'tough love' too.
Thanks for the last 23 years of tough love, guys! I don't know how much more I need?
this season of tough love has made me a better person. I get to watch more TV with my wife.
PFK would have done all that if I was the coach. MT had piss all to do with it.
Fuck off with the gretzky trade. Circumstances were totally fuck there and then.
This is really hard to listen to. I'm glad my computer doesn't have smell-o-vision, otherwise my office right now would smell like a pig barn the day after the hogs all went on a Mexican food and donair binge followed by a night of drinking tequila and grape Kool-Aid.
Molson is 100% behind DGMB.
he who has the gold makes the rules. Fact is coach makes according to paretos law, 80% of the diffferance or 20%. It goes both ways. I believe its the 80%. A team is built by the coach. Its a Mcyver project, take the things lying around and build a fucking weapon that will not hurt anyone but will win.
Any coach that hangs his players out to dry in public is a puke. A puke a fuckning puke.
Is it just me or do each one of those journalists look like they don't believe a word of what is being uttered from the foxhole?
They've bought into the vanilla.
Some reactionson MT and coaching staff "Geoff Molson justifies decision to make no changes by saying Marc Bergevin is an excellent GM, and these decisions are his to make."'Carey Price keeps more people in their jobs than a federal bailout.''Really glad the Habs found out that the part time guy who works 1 weekend a month was to blame for the biggest collapse in franchise history'
Lets sell the team to GWB and make Dick Cheny the GM.
Stabilty my ass. There is no stablity. How do Olypic teams win without stablity?
Now we know why we need a French speaking coach, cause in English its all bullshit translation
AHL coaching staff is safe because due to injuries, the team was split and many players played in the NHL. Umm, it's been 4 years. Pigshit.
Now we have to burn down the villiage to save it metaphore. We have to lose to win.
Lost because of Carey Price injury. Check.
Fuck off with the gretzky trade. Circumstances were totally fucked there and then.
Last year was a disastor for playoffs. Lets not bring up the regular season ever again.
we play well when losing , holy fuck batmann the leaf measure
DGMB is this is all you got leave the stage now before you embarrss yuour self beyond repair
Wow, DGMB says team leaders were lacking in leadership.
I'm out. Cannot listen to anymore of this PS! They might as well have George Michael in the background singing to us that we just "gotta have faith faith faith" over and over. FTS.
They might as well have George Michael in the background singing to us that we just "gotta have dep dep dep" over and over. FTS.
Hey please listen wihtout prejucdice
for us Anglos its hard, but I believe he was just asked why PA is top scorer in leaf
Heh, DGMB says Vanek was well coached by MT2.Who fucking cares.
Yeah eMTy was making bets
He also said Vanek helped get them to the playoffs. If memory serves, weren't they already in a position to make the playofffs?
Captian Queeg, mutiny on the bounty, Mr Roberts all this cinema comes to my mind right now. Even Moby Dick. Blame the whale, not the harpoon
This is all a trememdous and damaging waste of time. Nothing is changing, the medium is the messageand lets if we make the playoffs the holi polie will celebrate.
San Francicos Cock Suckers, stab them in the cock
Now he throws Patches under the bus. wtf
'we always judge on results' - MT2Except you.
I am watching 11.23.63 and if I went back in time it would not be to prevent JFK's cranium from going into the trunk of a linchon, no it would be to encourage DDD's parents to push him towards basketball.
STOP IT! YOU GUYS ARE FUCKING KILLING ME!!I haven't laughed this hard in months! Saint Paddy, Steve and moe are way fucking better comedians than the troika at the mike. They lie like a fucking rug.
I am not a Habs fan, I am listening to a press conferance in a languae I do not comprehend. I am a bad person cause I could have used this valuable time to help myself.
Wonder if 'Less than zero' is on Netflix.
Holy fuck I gotta go change my underwear....
Nutshell=DGMB caps off the presser with full praise for MT2, who then drops the mic with a 'Marci'.Its Merci BTW.
Go fuck yourself empty nobody cares what you think. And Bergy, I hope you realize you just tied a big fat anchor around your own neck. If Geoff shoves that prick overboeard you're going with him.
That was exactly what I was thinking as I watched. If the Habs have another disaster next season they are both gone. And it won't be a second too soon.
OK Geoff, you just guaranteed a 24th year of no Cup in Montreal, you're half way to leaf territory. Congratulations and enjoy all the empty seats in the reds next year.
In perspective every team in the leauge would like a blog like this. I have seen every blog in the world and commented on it once. I have also found there is no muff to tough. I am not saying I am offically froggy but I have watched lone survior enough time to take out any imaginable threat.So we are the envy of the hockey blogs, or maybe sports blogs or maybe anywhere you can just be a fan. Thats Moeman, thats a coach, thats a GM. Take all the players and bring them to the same place. Get froggy is not a anti frech ref. It refers to the geisis of Navy Seals who we are taught to think are all superman. I have fought a navy seal and won. Yeah I doused him with tegula first and his only hurt was a mindfuck.
words to live and die by
That deal with the fans was the same as the brother of the protagosit of the Kite Runner thinkinghe could make Kite rape positive.
Hope they don't also livestream the Molson/Bergevin/Therrien/Desharnais circle jerk. Some things you cannot unsee. It's even tough now that the image is in your mind. Am I right?!
Heh, Melnicks show starts with 'Running on empty' by Jackson Browne.I'm a genius.
I caught that too.
Got that right
I think I have idendifed next to Tony Robbins evey elemet needed for succecss. This crew seems to have completely foucusd on the bullshit. There is truth in every measure, that does not mean the whole lie is a truth just because they got the simple part.
every instiatusion we have always lived with like oxgen has tuned out noxius. Fear for breath in this new day.
The excuse for keeping MT is TFS's injury and look the pts they had since MT was here. Well, to that I say if you credit the collapse to TFS's injury, then the same holds true for for being the reason MT had success, it's not his success, it's TFS's.
So, as Archie Bunker would say "Ipso Fatso, TFS should be the coach." But wait! He doesn't speak French. We should ship his ass outta here.
Archie also mouthed: "My doctor tells me I got a communications disease."
When speaking about a coach losing his job, I don't really get it when someone says they don't really want someone to get fired. Even if a coach does get fired, isn't he still under contract and gets paid anyway?
Not a lot of hard hitting questions in that presser. Well, certainly no follow-ups calling their bullshit at the very least. I do get that sense that it's roll over or be excluded from the party. My biggest fear is that there won't be a significant change at the top until another catastophic event which sets us back another 2 decades. You know of which I speak.Growing up, the Hawks were always a close 2nd as my favourite team (and those were some lean years). I wish I could click my heels and make it so I could cheer for them as if they were the Habs, but there is something in the blood that makes it impossible. I guess that's the case with any real sports fan. But it sucks especially when the future looks so bleak. And as is the case with sports, maybe we'll be here next year spouting what a genious MB is for making all the right moves and giving the Habs a good shot at taking a run for the cup. Just maybe.
All players crash TFS and target him even if they don't know the injury, that's often on record as being part of the game plan. UBI or LBI won't change that so protecting the player where TFS is concerned is just plain BS.
This is The Montreal Canadiens. MT2 should not have been on that presser stage and fired yesterday.
welcome to the suck, you where always there, now the realization
i was a side gunner in NAM and we never missed our targets but sadley lost the war to people in payjames
Thank god I was busy today and could not watch that crap
I mentioned this once before, I believe St. Patrick put a curse on the Habs when he was traded over 20 years ago. Not even his jersey retirement ceremony has caused him to lift it. I know moe is not in favor of it, but when empty is eventually turfed maybe bring him in to coach?I think I'm going to be sending a letter to Geoff Molson that he has lost this fan, for a while anyway. Keeping this staff of losers all the way down to the AHL is just wrong and a slap in the face to the fan base. I'm assuming social media is going nuts about this.
I have no problem with Patrick Roy back in any capacity with the Habs.
Good, maybe it was someone else who wasn't keen on the idea.
the M., I named my son after him. See the last game parody.
Time for the power machine to rip DGMB's bad french. MT2's pathetic english is a moot point.
So he's saying next year he will work on the 3rd and 4th lines and ride price again.Great GM we have!
And the whole debacle is Craig Ramsay's fault apparently. I never really understood what he did anyway...
One of BBB's statements regarding why no changes: "I have the information. They (the fans) don't.DD 32 straight games on the PP with 0 points…I guess BBB didn’t have that info.Let's face it guys and gals, the Habs may just not be very good. Even with a healthy Price they don't win anything. Not enough talent up front. Once the opposition shuts down Max and gCHuk (which is relatively easy) that's it.The best thing that could happen this fall is a 0-10 start. Even BBB would have to kick empty out of the foxhole for that. It only took 0-4-0 to get Demers and Savard fired back in '95.
Watched the full pressed and now I have this to say...DGMB is dead to me. He us gutless and not nearly as bright as we gave been giving him credit for. While it is admirable to stand by your decisions, a smart manager knows when to cut his losses. They need to take the No Excuses banner down because that was all I heard today. Repeating what they did this year with the same staff and hoping they have a healthy TFS is the definition of insanity. DGMB clearly has no idea what to do next. He might trade the whole team if someone offers up enough 4th liners...I don't really know...it is going to be a long summer friends...and if Geoff Molson really does read these blogs ...I have never felt so embarrassed to be a Habs fan than I do today
old girlriends make contact and that is why love will never win the stanly cup
I don't have time to read through all your lovely comments right now, but a peruse of the press conference confirms all we suspected of this team. We should accept that this is the end of the Cup window this team had with such a strong core. It's over, folks. On MT: "Not his fault! I guarantee he'll be back next season!"On PK: "I don't intend to trade him...."It's like Roy's trade dragged out for several years. I can't take it anymore. I think I need to pick a Western team for next year to cheer for instead. Go Minny!
The picture over at HI/O of the Habs troika says a lot:MB - Everybody calm down, I got a plan, I'd tell you but you wouldn't understand.GM - How am I going to get rid of these two clowns and still look good?MT - I wonder how I can get Davey more minutes and PP time?
OK, I just finished reading Stu Cowan's transcript of Bargain Bin's damage control spin and all I can say is wow, he's just as disingenuous as Geoff Molson in his letter to the fans. I'll just comment on two things 1)He kept saying with Carey Price they make the playoffs. Well, you better have a contingency plan because Carey is a china doll with bad knees. 2)This is the one I find ridiculous: You can't get scorers because nobody trades those guys. All you can do is get 3rd an 4th line guys to help out the ones you have. Bullshit. Give Jim Nill a call BB, maybe he can tell you how it's done. He got Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza for fuck-all. In the meantime you keep scrounging in everybody's dumpster to get your Matteaus and Danaults.Oh yeah, when all else fails, fire the anglo.The Habs are going nowhere with these two fools. They are worse than Gauthier and Martin.
I'm done commiserating for this year. Time to get the clubs re-gripped (I'm sure that will improve my game) and start planning some spring golf. FORE! When's draft lottery day? April 30th I think. Maybe I'll stop by May 1st to discuss who the Habs should pick 9th overall.
I'm still angry over Geoff Molson and Marc Bergevin's decision to keep the status quo. After a disastrous season like 2015-16 there has to be some accountability besides firing a part-time PP consultant, who was probably ignored and overruled by the bully Therrien anyway. Like Saint Paddy I am going to let it go but I would like to copy and paste a comment posted over at HI/O that I thought summed up the situation far better than I ever could. I hope that's OK just in case some of our fellow FHFers missed it. It was too good to be lost:Peter YoungApril 12, 2016 at 12:26 am During my 50 years in law, one thing I learned was to beware of the judgment of anyone who refers to themselves in the third person, as Marc Bergevin is quoted as doing in the story above. It’s not merely that it’s pompous and narcissistic, but it indicates the person thinks that his name carries more authority than a simple “I” or “me,” that he is bigger and more important than he actually is–in short, it demonstrates self-conceit on a large scale.Nor do I trust the judgment of people who say they have the information that the common people don’t have and therefore that their judgment should be trusted when, in fact, they withhold the crucial information from the people. That is the way a lot of dodgy politicians operate, even in an alleged democracy.For sure there is some need to keep some information secret in the hockey world, but the Canadiens management withholds transparency when there is no need to. There was, for example, no need to string the fans along for an entire season without giving them the information on Carey Price’s injury, condition and recovery until only a game or two remained in the season. This kind of management behavior is counter-productive because it breeds rumors and distrust.And to those people who say that the Canadiens’ management and ownership acts as any businessmen would to maximize profit, the Canadiens hockey club is much more than a business and the management and owner of that business have much more responsibility than that of a mere business owner.For an example of how businessmen who treat great sports clubs as purely a business investment, who put in charge unqualified staff and who in the process begin to destroy a grand sporting institution, see what happened to Liverpool F.C., which now appears to be recovering, and what is now happening to Manchester United F.C., the other sports club I support, which is headed for ruin unless things radically change.This comes from one who has not urged the firing of anyone from the club, not Bergevin, not Therrien, although I have agreed with a lot of the criticisms aimed at them. But there comes a point where there has to be accountability, and a season like the one the Canadiens have endured reaches that point. To say, after that ghastly season, trust us to do the right thing while scapegoating a peripheral member of the coaching staff is simply not enough, particularly not in the wake of the bewildering coaching and management decisions that were made throughout that season.That says it all folks. I await J.T.'s season review.
Hmm, the Maritimer's right, amidst getting caught in the obvious of maintaining status quo, I didn't even realize they fired the anglo. Headlines "Bergeviin addresses Subban's future", "Is Subban safe or will Canadiens trade him?" I haven't listened to or read them but how is it even possible that those words are ever grouped into a sentence? I mean, this is one of the top D in the league over a few seasons and one of the best players on the team, a Norris trophy holder, a guy who gets fans out of their seats and generates revenue for the team selling merchandise, plays with a passion while his coach treats him like a piece of crap and still comes back with a smile to play the next game for the team he loves? a guy who went over and above for the community and made “the biggest philanthropic commitment by a sports figure in Canadian history” and not only raises money but also gives his time and sits on the board of directors and visits kids every week? How is it possible that these words I write can even be written?Orangeman is right, it's like the Roy trade is being dragged out over several years.
I read somewhere the best thing about the PFK vs. MT2 garbage. DGMB is 100% behind his coach but could not say 100% that he wouldn't trade PFK.
Team is too tall for both Lego and DDD to stand up. Bye Lego, I will never
MB "...if Gretzy can be traded..."I read this somewhere yesterday "Well, if Scotty Bowman can be fired"
Gretzky was traded AFTER he had won the Stanley Cup...and after he had set all kinds of records . Not as he was coming into his prime. DGMB is a fucking pompous asshole and if I was doubting his cred as a GM before this, I have now completely lost any respect for him. He has zero credibility and as the saying goes "he's writing cheques his fucking cheap suits can't cash anymore..."
Sens fire Cameron and all his assistants.
I am so jealous of Sens fans right now!
Amen brother. That GM obviously has a clue.
our stick boy got a talking to
we will probably trade Eller to trade up and get Julien Gauther with 5th overall, meanwhile he is out of the top ten on every body eleses list
Norman Flynn was actually laughing that MT is still here and gCHyuk was being 'protected' by the coach in his 4th year and they better pray that TFS stays healthy next year.
♫ There's a lawyer who's sure all that glitters is gold and he's suing a Stairway To Heaven ♫(no offense to 29)
Sportsnet’s “Hometown Hockey” is down 42 per cent season-to-season.Told ya. (and scumnet loaded those games with leaf)
Bwahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahaahhaaha! It's called karma...and it's spelled F U C K Y O U...
From:http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/hockey/rogers-feeling-the-sting-of-canadian-teams-missing-nhl-playoffs/article29608707/Also,"“Whether we like it or not in other parts of the country, the Toronto Maple Leafs drive the value of the hockey broadcast ecosystem,” said Moore."and"If Toronto and Edmonton, two Canadian teams rebuilding for the future with high draft picks, meet in the Stanley Cup final two years from now, “the tenor of the press reporting will be very, very different, I expect,” Moore said.Complete utter fucking putrid crap.
So Moore visits with sham-a-plan regularly. No bias there.
It's what Wilde refers to as the 'powerful machine'.
3-1 Olympique after two 👍
So much secon' guessing! Quit da secon' guessing. Mark an' me know what we need to do to protec Alex and Davey. Don't worry. We ave a plan. We got information and you don't. Price will Carey us to da finals nex year. So relax like me an enjoy a nice long summer wit no worries. An remember don't question us. We know. You don't.
HEY! Who let eMTy in here?
This is excellent
Game over Gatineau 7 Moncton 1 😎👍
Someone postulated earlier, I can't remember where, that Therrien may actually be pulling the strings for the Habs not Bergevin. Makes sense. All they seem to acquire are grinders who can dump and chase and not score. Semin, Sekac any skilled players come to wither and die under eMTy's tutoring. Or we could blame Price's Knee. ;-)
Can the Habs sink any lower than that?
I am going to echo Brian Wilde, Stu Cowan and a load of others here. The arrogance of DGMB, and MT is absolutely stunning. They do not have a Plan B. If TFS was not injured, the Habs would have won the Stanley Cup - end of conversation! Everything began and ended with the injury to TFS. More goals were scored so they would have won more games if TFS was in nets. Do they actually watch any of the games? Condon let in more goals than TFS would have - yes - but the Habs left him hung out to dry more times than I care to even think about. Price isn't going to stop PFK from blowing a tire in the game where MT hung him out to dry. TFS isn't going to make Patches actually pick the right man to check on that same play either. TFS wasn't going to help DDD score even 1 goal in 33 PP attempts, but somehow there is nothing their that needs addressing. I'm going to spell something out here in case Geoff Molson actually does read blogs such as this one. I'll do it slowly...AND IN CAPS...THIS PAST SEASON SAW THE MONTREAL CANADIENS ACHIEVE WHAT NO OTHER TEAM IN THE HISTORY OF THE NHL HAS EVER DONE BEFORE. INSIDE OF 60 GAMES THEY WENT FROM BEING THE BEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE TO THE WORST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE. THIS HAS NEVER EVER BEEN DONE BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF THE NHL. THE MONTREAL CANADIENS MANAGEMENT BELIEVE THAT THERE IS NOTHING THAT THE COACHES COULD HAVE DONE TO PREVENT THIS. THERE IS NO BLAME TO ATTRIBUTED AND NO ONE SHOULD LOSE THEIR JOB BECAUSE IT WOULDN'T BE FAIR ON THEM BECAUSE IF NOT FOR THE INJURY TO CAREY PRICE THE HABS WOULD HAVE WON THE STANLEY CUP. NEXT SEASON EVERYTHING WILL BE BETTER BECAUSE CAREY PRICE WILL BE HEALTHY...That is the message the team has now put out to the world. Is it any wonder that when Bergevin (no longer worthy of a 4HF nickname!) goes looking to sign a top free agent or a top 6 forward who have 29 other teams to choose from, they don't choose the Habs! Right before our eyes, the Montreal Canadiens have morphed into the toronto maple leafs...
no the leaf know how to tank
I agree with you K3X but it'll fall on Geoff's deaf ears.
no excuses in the dressing room, in the foxhole fill yur boots.
So Davey an' me, we were in da foxhole playing hide da sausage. This is why Davey is so good at avoiding contact in a match. Anyway, dere we were playing hide da sausage...Davey being his usual sneaky self, when into the foxhole jumps my good friend Mark. I say "Mark, dis is normally a two player game, but we could try for a tree way sausage link." Mark said dere was no time - it was almost time to go tell da press to mind there fucking business. As you know, they don't know. We know. He says we need a scapegoat. I say da Habs got rid of da goat before dey hire you. We laughed you know. So anyway, I put on my serious face. You know it. I say to Mark it's got to be JJ or Ramsay. Mark says "Daigneault?!" I say (still with my serious face), "Oui." He looked at me so puzzled, but I could not hold it - I crack my creepy smile and burst out laughing. Then he starts laughing too. At da same time we look at each other and say "Ramsay?" We laugh so hard, Davey sitting on my lap joined in. He didn't even know why. Jus so happy to be playing with Daddy and other Daddy. Oh, my sweet, wee Davey. Question nothing.

Didn't really need Wilde to tell us what we already knew. He's preaching to the choir. GM and MB basically told Habs fans and media to kiss off. Like Arrogant Fuckface sez: We know. You don't. Take a hike.
The truth is out! MB wants to trade PFK because he tried using PFK's tailor thinking he could look better but he just couldn't 'measure up'.http://montrealgazette.com/business/the-business-of-being-p-k-subban?__lsa=8cf4-24ae
Colon originally went on a mission to have ref Dean Warren fired because he called penalties on his son. A few years ago I read an article somewhere which had redacted Colon emails but it was evident by the game dates and boxscore which players were and weren't given penalties and it was clear why he went on campaign to get him fired. Give the guy his severance, Colon and get over yourself.
Rumour that Cube had talks with Habs brass according to Bergeron. Yeah, he'd love that. Francis Bouillon pourrait-il revenir dans le giron du Canadien de Montréal?Selon l’analyste et ancien entraîneur de la Ligue nationale de hockey (LNH) Michel Bergeron, l’ex-défenseur s’est récemment entretenu avec l’état-major du Tricolore dans le but d’effectuer un retour avec l’organisation dont il a porté le chandail pendant 581 rencontres.«On sait que dans les hommes de hockey du Canadien, il n’y a pas beaucoup de Québécois, a d’abord expliqué Bergeron jeudi soir sur les ondes de TVA Sports. On m’a soufflé à l’oreille que Francis avait rencontré la direction du Canadien... Je ne sais pas à quelle position, mais il y aurait une possibilité.»
