The song o' da day vid is actually quite sexy.
the Maritimer said " If MB trades PK and keeps eMpTy I am done."You can count me in on that, the Maritimer, whether MT stays or not. PK and Price are the best thing to happen to this organization in decades and if they can't see that and piss away elite talent that other teams would kill to have then they don't deserve to have any fans.I heard on the radio today that a scalper said he put 4 Habs tickets on his windshield then went to the game, when he came out there were 14 tickets on his windshield.
There's a reason this blog's (mast)header has both TFS™ and PFK placed next to the centered CH logo. Don't fuck with it.
Also, what he does for this community and the CHildren's hospital. PK sells the game like only a handful of players in the league can and he does with flair and passion which is unsurpassed. Some don't like that, some think he should be a cardboard cut-out and make the usual dull, robotic post-game interviews but why should he? His father always told him, be yourself, don't try to be someone else because that job is taken.
Bonus is why he CHose #76 and promised to parade the Stanley Cup in the middle of the centre of the universe.
Amen to that. I was off the bandwagon from the time Roy left town til the end of the Houle era (In Bob We Trust), and if PK were traded away, it would be equally devastating. I don't think Geoff will allow it.
@moeman:Thank you! I did not know this: “I was drafted in the sixth round in junior, which is why I originally wore the number 6, so I kept part of that in my number here,” Subban says. “The 7 is because I was drafted in 2007. There are a lot of different reasons why I wear it, but my dad’s main reason is that if you flip the 6, it’s a 9 like Markov. It’s funny, of all the Habs players in the team’s history, other than Ken Dryden, Andrei Markov is probably my dad’s favourite player. He’s a huge Markov fan. He gave Marky a huge hug the last time he saw him after a game. I wish I could have seen that with my own eyes!”source: http://montrealgazette.com/sports/p-k-subbans-father-is-a-big-andrei-markov-fan
Another great link/read, because of the linked videos;http://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/the-history-of-aretha-in-ten-videos
I could do a new thread tomorrow but I'll let the M. decide. (Regardless I'll add some Big John pics).
This one is fine with me!Slurp!!
Rock never gets old.
My all time favourite live concert moment was 1994 Pink Floyd Pulse live in Toronto - playing Wish you were and the entire crowd (60k+) singing this song without a prompt from Mr. Gilmour! I'm listening to it as I type and it still gives me shivers!
The Rags clinched.
Hope da broons die and just miss.
Final buzzer ending at March Madness.
Sorry to sound out of touch...TWD?
The Walking Dead, I think.
Yes The Walking Dead - the show is so great because so much of the cast is comprised of amazing British actors (that have obviously taken jobs from good hard working merricans).
Used to buy the books for my son years ago, that's why I thought it was that.
Walking dead number one is worth over a thousand

He really should tell Canada AM to post his clips immediately.
The C in CH now stands for conspiricy
we now get our guy, we did not move, but the players havehttp://www.mynhldraft.com/NHL-Mock-Draft/
Let's hope Dubois doesn't turn out to be another Eric Chouinard or Louis Leblanc.I want one of those Finns, maybe a bigger version of Saku.Now that I think of it, all those names I listed last night that got traded away, letting Saku walk away was another colossal blunder by the CH in my opinion.
Good Morning all! Hopefully this time next week MB will be telling us all that eMpTy has been relieved of his duties and we will all be relieved.
Well now, I guess I'll be able to scout Mssr. Dubois personally as his Cape Breton Screaming Eagles will be playing the Saint John Sea Dogs in the QMJHL quarter finals starting this Thursday. I hope he doesn't hit Luke Green from behind again. I'm sure Luke has that logged in his memory banks. Should be a fun series.
if I am picking I take the russky d man or Mcloud the fastest skater in the draft
According 25stanley, a source reported that PFK has re-arranged his schedule to he can have an MRI. They also cite Fried Man as saying that last week PFK was wearing a knee brace.
listining to Mariono and he would poo poo that. PFK practicing full contact and rock star. Next time he plays it will be for EDM.
Yeah, he's also complaining how the optics are bad for PFK to be out late enjoying himself, 'cause you know, you're not playing in hockey for you team, so you should roll over and die.
Its a trap RIPhttp://www.businessinsider.com/the-admiral-ackbar-voice-actor-from-star-wars-is-dead-at-93-2016-4
Oh give it a rest. 690 reports 'a good source' PK was out till the wee hours of the night when the Habs lost 5-0 in Ottawa. SO WHAT IF HE WAS? If you can't play hockey does that mean you can't sit somewhere and enjoy yourself? Do you have to be confined to house? He skates like a devil in practice but he can't go out? Marino likes to feed the fire and give his counterparts on AC something else to trash him about.
Much ado about nothing. Norman Flynn thinks PK is being 'punished'. For what? Being PK?
as long as he was not banging the presidents wife, should be nothing
Tony Marinaro @TonyMarinaro 34m34 minutes agoTQsOD: How does the John Scott story play out? And, how does ''L'affaire Subban'' end? 514-790-1690 #TSN690Now he deleted it.
Someone called him the 'r' word, he ended the subject of PFK and changed his twitter question.
OK - hang on a second - WTF is l'affaire Subban"? Is his fucking neck sore or not? Has he fucked his knee up? Because that's a LBI instead of an UBI (neck) So I will say again...WTF?
l'affaire Subban is Marinaro's label for what some of the conspiracy theories are and he insists something is fishy. Fried Man is cited for the knee thing. Here's what he wrote on 30 thoughts March 29."20. Expect Team Canada to start pursuing players for the world championships. First priority will be to those on the World Cup “watch list,” which is why, as John Shannon reported Saturday, Taylor Hall should be one of the first announced. (Connor McDavid, too, but he’s playing for the Team North America in September.) P.K. Subban told intrepid Montreal correspondent Eric Engels he’d like to go, too. I mentioned this to another player, who pointed out that he and his teammates noticed the defenceman wore a knee brace for a few games prior to his neck injury. Interesting. Let’s see if that prevents Subban from attending."I wouldn't put too much into it hey way PFK's been skating at practices, knee seems fine to me.
Thanks Juce - much appreciated. PFK needs the trannaworld cup like he needs a token for the bus...
Wonder if this will be legit or if IGA will raise the original prices one the reduced prices time has expired. Another report says they are reducing prices on meat in the west.http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/cnw/release.html?rkey=20160405C3148&filter=5611
my first RPG, I played with my wife, she went out and bought the clue book and never played another game.
I suck as much today as I did way back then. I still have the original Nintendo.
Or maybe it's the super Nintendo.
The Zelda music used to get annoying after listening to the kids playing it after about a 30 mins. Gameboys were good on long drives in the car, got them a wire they would attached and play against each other.
Dating myself here but I remember Coleco Vision.

FFS please lose the last 3 games. Julien Gathier seems like a risky pick, anything past 10 is big gamble. but 1 to 10 are all potential franchise players
If I am Mr Molsons Viagia I am doing a total cleanse. This season needs vagisal. Fire everyone and start over because the fish rots at the head. And we have nothing left but rotten fish.
So Sideshow doesn't want a salary cap. Took him almost 15 years to figure that out. Wonder why now.
What would a clown know about a salary cap? ;-)
"“The whole league is set up to help the bottom feeders,” Babcock said. “We have a salary cap, do we not? So, if there was no salary cap, the Toronto Maple Leafs could go out and spend as much money as they wanted, could they not? And as long as you made the money you could spend it. Now, I like that. That’s my political background. That’s what I believe in in life, but that’s not the way the league is run. So let’s fix that first and then we can get into the draft.”There ya go Babsy, you fucking lucky Olympic/Lidstrom SOB. What a POS thing to say but maybe all this losing is getting to you.
the laffs could spend a billion dollars and stil not win look at the Yankees
HA. What does that say about his faith in the 'abilities' of his organization? Whatever happened to the 'dream team'? Oh and of course, the fact that he's a sell-out and can spend as much money as he wants - he likes that, I'll bet.
Wilde tweet.'Last week seats were 6 bucks US to get into the Habs game. At 17:38, 40 US.'Someone replied that you wouldn't see that in tranna and Wilde replies '32 US tomorrow Leafs CBJ.'
BBJ has some awesome pulling power...
Just wait till the movie comes out.
GoMonkey Lou says more pain is coming. How many years do you think that line will work?
Evening kidz!So who is this John Scott kid everyone's talking about? must an important callup!
I came here for the John Scott fun and I get l'Affaire Subban. Kill me.(just to be clear, not your guys fault, this city is insane)
Really upset I missed the TWD discussion in the last thread. That finale was... terrible
ps no comic spoilers! I don't want to know who Negan killed in the comic. Unless you _really_ want to tell me...
29! Howèd the TV gig go? I looked for it this morning but couldn't find it.
Gremlins go to my keyboard.
went great thanks! (at least according to mom of 29). though it was very short. My time was cut due to all the excitement with the Panama Papers I think. Like a 3 minute segment. I have the feeling that's why it has not made it online, it was too brief
French keyboard shift, I can tell! apostrophe becomes è
Vegetable curry and a Boreale mixed pack I'm working through. The Boreale mixed pack is a case of 16 (4 x 4 types). 16! what a time to be alive

Scott in the starting lineup.
In moe's absence - Sara!
dammit should have refreshed
Carnivore pizza. Proseco.
oh nice start you idiots
Crap, that only took 10 secs.
T4T is alive!
The pizzas are mostly for my son's World of Warlocks board game party.
Park Scott in front of the net.
That requires coaching. Also, Big McM was barely made use of.
Best job next year is whoever takes over the Habs PP. Instant bonus.
well some good chances there
we have a lot of shots, that's not tanking!
@juce - the best I can do is this. use this link:http://canadaam.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=839936&playlistId=1.2845989&binId=1.815908&playlistPageNum=1&binPageNum=1and jump to 1:02:30
Thanks 29, I'll try it at intermission.
Got it. Good job, 29.
do you all remember when Jagr wanted to play with us but he was "too old". Like 3 years later he's skating circles around us in out neutral zone
*ouR OWN zone. Boreales kicking in
Yup. Pretty sure all the hot and beautiful Montreal women join us in our unhappiness.
Too bad he was 'washed up'.
well that was... a period of hockey. we had some shots
Lots of shots.

Cash it. Park Scott in front of the net, certainly can't hurt the PP in any way.
If itès knee on knee why do they call a tripping?
C'mon guys, cash the damn thing.
tank, dammit, tank ffs
Would like to see him and PatCHes both get 30 goals.
Season is almost over, add this to your bookmarks;http://mentalfloss.com/article/78175/watch-10-seasons-joy-painting-youtube-free
Thanks! Best naps ever listening to Bob paint!
Was hoping for a penalty shot.
Shots are 29-4 for the Habs. Bobby Loo is keeping them in it.
Cash it boys.
Bogus penalty on kidA.
Kindl should have been called immediately prior for interference. MT yapping at the ref.
Lego told Furlatt too and he gave him a warning. Do your fucking job instead of calling bogus penalties, idiot.
@29 --- if you really, really want to know who Negan kills in TWD comics I will tell you. It's no secret, it happened 4 years ago so...Besides, the TV show does not follow the books exactly so it could be anyone, except Rick and Carl just because of what Negan said during that scene. I was thinking Daryl but a friend of mine who is part owner of a comic book shop said he doubts it because Daryl Dixon merchandise outsells Rick Grimes. Wouldn't that be killing that fabled goose...?
I'm not watching the game it's more fun reading the comments here.
I got tired of watching crap eMpTy hockey early...
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!! Go Habs Go!!Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!
@the M - I want to know, but I don't want to know. I'll think about it. I'll do more thinking on this issue than eMpTy has done all year
I'd like to announce I am know more interested in watching the Raptors game than the Habs game. Kill meReally I'm just killing time until the season finale of the People vs. OJ Simpson. Now that's entertainment!
Try 'Billions'... awesome acting by Paul Giamatti.As for the death just Google it, it won't be hard to find and I think it's someone else on the show.
I watch a lot of Billions. Great performances by a lot of them. Even Mrs Jax Teler. Problem is I hate every character on the show. Not a redeeming quality in anyone
True, although I like Chuck's wife Wendy, she's hot.Pretty much a microcosm of Wall Street and the U.S. justice system.
This. Best show of the past year
Intense and intelligent. Can't wait for season 2
CBJ 3-1 over Devils just passed us if we donèt win.
@29, you thought TWD finale was terrible, I have to disagree. That was a strong episode where Rick goes from being supremely confident in being able to handle Negan's Saviours to being utterly helpless.Kind of like how Habs fans are feeling these days... helpless I mean.
"let's go this way"/blocked"let's go this way"/blocked"let's go this way"/blocked/random cut to Morgan and Carol and horses story that makes no sense"let's go this way"/blockedoh look, the Saviours are all of a sudden a potent military machine after being pathetic for 6 episodesmehNegan and his bat were good
You forgot: "Let's take a shortcut through the woods and send Eugene in the RV as a decoy" RATS! We're fucked...
Ha! Yes, having Eugene as the center of your plan was always a good move!
Cans 2-1 over broons in the SO.
Late breaking news; MT2's name is revealed in the Panama Papers. Looks like he offshore his winnings right after his contract extension.
PP + EN = ?
4-1, they won"t come back. Better draft position, I guess.
OK I'm outta here, thanks for the conversation tonight!
I FHFeel empty.
Raptors win, just in time for OJ
Gallant must be so glad he got away from MT, 2 teams making history at opposite ends of the spectrum.
Bonsoir mes ami(e)s.(the M. I have tickets to the Piques game on Friday night.)
Night moe, it was FHFun.
With the broons loss, the Bolts clinch. I guess that means Julie will get fired and come to Montreal like the media are compaining for if MT gets the boot.
PatCHes congratulating the winner.https://twitter.com/antichambre/status/717532913483563008
Habs gave him the option and John Scott is heading home to Michigan. His season is over.
cid eel cid drZft drift wawayyy goes now
So long, BBJ, better bring some water with you.
John Scott was pretty emotional about the possibility of this being his final NHL game. Requested his Habs No 22 jersey to take with him. Thank your lucky stars the Goat is gone. On a humane side of things, I feel bad for him.
First my final note on TWD. 29 summed it up perfectly in my mind... the /blocked sequence.Now, too bad BBJ didn't get the perfect fairytale ending. That said - why the fuck was it written in stone that he would only play one game? Why not let him finish the season? Is he any worse than the other 4th line plugs you have available? Is he the most popular player on the planet? This is the only 'yes' answer...ok maybe a stretch, but did you hear the fans? I've lost all understanding regarding management of this club. Are they fucking blind and deaf? And stupid? Is it that important to play fucking Stefan Matteau or somebody for the last 2 games? Bah, like i've said before they fucked the pooch when they didn't call him up before the All-Star game so he could wear a NHL sweater to the game and they again when they didn't call him up after his success at the game. Would have been a fucking license to print money the jerseys alone you could have sold. Meh, i'm tired and cranky again. So fucking pissed off at management.
Word!however, these were mostly Buttman's calls I would guess. We'll know for sure if the Habs win the draft lottery
I'm not mad or angry any more. I don't really care about the on-ice product these days. I'm more interested in what happens after the season finishes. I still have utter contempt for empty and his useless staff. MB I'm still waiting on... but not for much longer.
The broons are now in the lottery with a 1% chance, Jacobs will certainly be calling Bettman.
Canadiens Montréal @CanadiensMTL 3m3 minutes agoMedical update - Carey Price and P.K. Subban not to return to action this season. DETAILS -> http://goha.bs/1SApOL7
Montreal CanadiensCommentPrintE-mailPRESS RELEASEMONTREAL – Canadiens’ general manager Marc Bergevin announced Tuesday that goaltender Carey Price will not return to action this season. The decision was made last night by the Canadiens’ medical staff, head team physician Vincent Lacroix, head orthopedic surgeon Paul Martineau, with Marc Bergevin and Carey Price.“Now that Carey Price’s season has officially ended, here is a detailed description of his injury: Carey sustained a medial collateral ligament injury (MCL sprain) to his right knee on November 25th, 2015 in a game against the NY Rangers. The MCL provides support to the inside of the knee and is essential for stability and knee function. Acute, isolated MCL injuries are managed without surgery. Rehabilitation treatments lead to full functional recovery. The recovery process can be long in the case of an elite netminder such as Carey, due to the high demand placed on this anatomical structure by modern goaltending techniques. Although Carey has made excellent progress and is very close to being able to return to competition, he has not presently been cleared to do so. He is expected to make a full recovery over the off-season. This injury was not the same as the one he suffered earlier this season (October 29th at Edmonton), nor in previous years,” said the Canadiens’ head physician, Dr. Vincent Lacroix.The Canadiens also announced that the following players will also be out for the remainder of the season due to injuries: P.K. Subban (neck), Mark Barberio (concussion), Victor Bartley (groin/broken foot) and Lucas Lessio (right knee).My question to the Habs' brass: Now was that so hard?
So they also want to point out that this isn't a recurring injury while not divulging what the previous injuries were.
Now they should come clean and clear up the cloud of mystery surrounding PFK.
I think PFK has been black balled
Scott asked the Canadiens if he could take his jersey home with him."I wanted to have it," he said. "It'll go up in my basement, it's one of the special ones. (Being the) Canadiens, obviously, it's got a lot of pull behind it. It'll be a good jersey to look up at when I hang it up."
Patches gets nod for King Clancy, PFK's $10 million not so much. Wow there is something wrong in the room,
Marinaro, once again trying to whip PFK's ass.
its ridiculous that PFK is not nominated and should be clear winner of King Clancy. No other athele in North America has done anything close to the Childrens Hospital
Of course its great tanking to keep PFK and TFS out of the lineup. We got a lock on number 8 and if AZ can win just one we drop to 7. Peirre is ours.
Watched the 29 clip, nice defense of freedom. Man goverments can be total asshats at times. I am pretty sure Harper was blocking millions of Canadians from going to my site. I'm sure when JT gets around to removing the blocks I will get the audience I deserve.
'Price confirmed that he also hurt his MCL when Kreider ran him in the playoffs.' No surprise there, Kreider was the root of all evil. Nothing gave me more pleasure when TFS planted him to the ice behind the net and gave him the stare-down.
Funny how Blob's poll of top NHL coach has no mention of how many votes Sideshow got.
Just make a Sideshow special trophy.I predicted Sideshow would last three futile years. One down.
Bargain Bin Bergy and empty manage to make themselves look and sound worse every day with lies and damned lies.R.I.P. Merle Haggard. Not a country fan but he was one of the good ones.

He's just an Okee from Muskogee! Real talent - I enjoy some of the old country from likes of him, George Jones and Marty Robbins. RIP.
It'll get worse before it gets worse, SFUckers Edition #infinity:- can the leaf make next's year's playoffs- how can the leaf bag Matthews- is Sideshow Jack Adams worthy- subdued kadri enjoys basketball - no NHL team in history has recalled players like the leaf- reimer could win a Cup- the jays was robbed
