Moeman, you are a star and I don't blame you for being board. Very nice touch to include a pictorial tribute to Jo Cox - most SF'ers won't know her, and indeed I didn't even know here until the tragredy unfolded yesterday - she is an MP from Yorkshire for the Labour party and I live southeast of London so no reason I should have. What the killing did was highlight how petty and narrow things have become over here, especially with all the vitriol being spewed about the referendum. End of the day she was a lovely woman doing a job she loved and beause someone became unhinged and disagreed with her, she is no longer amongst us. So terribly sad! As a long time 4 HFer living abroad, this blog is invaluable to me and I look forward to each and every installment. That being said - fuck all is going to happen between here and draft day (except for maybe another midget Free Agency signing by the fuckwits running the Habs these days) so why not rest and re-charge? We can always comment on this link until such time as there is something worth blogging about. Just want to help as I don't ever want this blog to end!!
k3X, I was kind of being sarcastic with the 'board' (see header pic) but I will say that the last few weeks have been boring when it comes to hockey.Thanks for the info. on the young Mme. Jo Cox. What a disgusting shame to lose such a beautiful and caring person.
By the manner in which the word was spelled out I knew where you were going...however I also detected (and felt) the sentiment that we are all probably feeling. Hockey season ended months ago it seems and there is nothing new under the sun until...?? Here's a good link to the horror that unfolded in Yorkshire yesterday...http://dld.bz/eCmpS
Ballots show Crosby edged Kessel in tight Conn Smythe voteBy Frank SeravalliEverybody outside of the GTA - Yell it - "Who puts the 'S' in SFU?!"TSN/SPRORTSNET/CBC - "WE DO! WE DO!"The Kessel tracker was replaced with the Kessel Conn Smythe tracker which has since been replaced by the KesselCup to T.O. tracker. "S" indeed.Great SF as usual. Phew. Glad to see we got Barberio locked up for 2 years. BBB at his finest - locking up the 6/7 D-man is equivalent to the usual 4th line/extra body forward we usually see. If he doesn't surprise the hell out of us over the next 3 weeks...then God...er rather, then Carey's knee help us all.
St. Pad. Thnx. Funny how those media votes aren't revealed.
Happy Sexy Friday everyone, thanks Moeman for being the last institution on earth that can be trusted to deliver without fear or favour.In the words of Rodney King, why cant we all just get along. I went to my daughters Grad in the beautiful U of T convecation hall yesterday. The key note speaker was a Dr Schindler, the guy responsible for getting half the phosphate out of waste which saved the great lakes and many others, and for stopping acid rain. He did this using a lake in northern ontario as a lab. Harper tried to shut down this lab. He told the grads they faced the greatest challanges mankind has every faced, but felt they were up to it. The next speaker had the same messge but told a joke which clearly describes the problem. Its the false logic that got that beautiful MP murdered. On a dessert Island are a scientest, a lawyer and a economist. All the food they have is one can of beans and no opener. The scientest says lets work to create one, the lawyer says first we need to create a contract to divide up the beans, the econoist says your both nuts, all we have to do is assume the opener.
New Hip album; Listen to Man Machine Poem by The Tragically Hip on @AppleMusic.https://itun.es/ca/PLVHbb
Four listens of the album. No shuffling. Hearing Bowie influences. 'Tired as fuck' a fave tune. Best lyric 'I love you so much it distorts my thoughts '. We've all felt that.
Good day folks! Yeah, not too much going on in the hockey world. Only things I've noticed are Carolina trying to get better (but trading is hard), Phat Phil won a Cup once he escaped the toilet bowl he was playing in (again, trading for help is SO hard) and the NHL is expanding into more desert areas. Meanwhile, Molson, Bergevin and Therrien are out turning over rocks looking for help (remember that wretched press conference?). The only thing they'll find now are June bugs. These three no longer inspire me, my expectations are low and getting lower.
expanding to the dessertm, so 21st century
How is the golf gaMe?See what I did there?
More bad days than good lately, I found out I will be having spine fusion to cure a wonky back that is deteriorating weekly, I notice it more and more all the time. Hopefully I'll be relatively pain free in the near future. In the meantime I'll carry on and get my rounds in.Yep, I caught your little greeting, nice!
My Uncle, an avid golfer now in his early 70s, had that surgery 5 years ago and he is back to 4 games a week.
I met with the surgeon last week, a fellow golfer sympathetic to my cause, if he does me this fall he said he'll have me back on the course by next June or July. Here's crossing my fingers.
I know what will happen. We will trade our number 9 for Druid. Then you can worship me like a treethat bleeds.
The oilers do not trade their draft pick. Draft picks there like the PEg are the only players who stay willingly.
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzy dont think winner said trade me please please please, I sold al lot oused carsnow re paint me
the only way the NHL does not face extinction is robot refs, who call every interferance.
Somebody will be getting the Oilers #4 pick but it won't be Montreal. I'll bet Vinnie has already told Drouin to put the Habs on his no trade list.
Happy belated SF y'all. I left Thursday, spent a few nights at a relative's place and just got home today. R.I.P. Jo Cox, sick fucks roaming amongst a population of unsuspecting innocents.
I thought I would come back and have to throw away my lettuce experiment since I wasn't here to change the water daily, but to my surprise, a new lettuce is actually growing. woohoo, finally something even I can't kill.
Funny how teams can find loopholes to circumvent the cap. Sort of defeats the purpose of having one.
Stamkos isn't a leaf yet?
he saw what they did to Kessel and does not want to be a Pengui
stand pat, easy for MB. PB is not worth trading up for, we could get just as good a player in the second round, long odds but very possible.
Good article in today's Star by Bruce Arthur pointing out how boring Gary's league has become. No goals = no excitement. Some good quotes by Ray Ferraro. There's an easy cure as I see it, first, get rid of all the old, dinosaur, defence first coaches including the likes of the brain dead eMpTy. Second, make the rinks bigger, give the skilled players some room to work. Good hockey players know how to score goals and create openings. The first thing these asshole coaches do is beat any creativity out of them when they come out of junior or college. All the whole damn fraternity thinks about is goal prevention not goal scoring. Next, the cheatin' goalies. Shrink down that equipment so there is something to see and shoot at. Remember when guys like Lafleur, Cournoyer, Mahovlich or Bobby Hull could come down the wing and rifle one to the far side? You never see that anymore. It was beautiful. Back then goalies would hug the post to protect the short (or AHL) side and if they got beat to the far post so be it. They tipped their hat to the shooter and moved on.More and more I am drawn to watching the kids play in junior, lots of mistakes but lots of dangling, goals and excitement. Basically the only reason I watch the NHL anymore is I am drawn to the Habs jersey but with each passing losing season I am losing interest. Let's face it, the club is living off their past glory, but I figure sooner or later savvy Habs fans will not fall for this ploy any more.Next Friday will be interesting to see if Bergevin makes a move to try and recover from the mess of last season and his "Fuck you we know and you don't" shite press conference. If I was to give him a grade for his performance last season he would get a big fat F as he watched his first place team go down faster than the Andrea Gail. I don't believe for one fucking minute they didn't know Price was done for the year. It was all a big lie. His coaches and their "System" or "Process" are shit but he wouldn't admit it.OK, that's my rant for the day. Cheers! More Black Grouse and ginger ale coming up!
If I have to play, its alright, unless its not play then I quit. The goose that laid the golden eggs is on life support, cause of some buttman on the face.
It's kinda fun to read all the back and forth on the different forums, oh hell, HI/O, the various trade scenarios people come up with. One thing I've noticed is the sheer horror of some people if this player or that player gets traded. I'm probably guilty of it too but when it comes down to it there are only two players on the Habs I would not trade, PK and Price and I'm not 100% on Price. I might miss kidG but if the package was good enough I'd move him too. Maybe I'm too drunk to think about this. This U.S. Open is good, Oakmont is a tough course, I'd probably shoot 120 at that joint even from the forward tees. "Hic".
I would be 4 putting a lot of those greens.
Here's another thought: Funny how these NHL coaches can transform a 100+ point season junior superstar into a 30 point player in the NHL.
Happy 4HFathers Day everyone!
Happy Father's day to all the dads, enjoy your day!
Bonne Fête des Pères

its all pretty well butman these days, we need a plug for the future
Well DJ Cokehead tamed Oakmont like nobody else could. Who knows - maybe he's cleaned up his act, hard to imagine the Great One would have let him hang onto Paulina otherwise. Speaking of said fox, and god bless you for flauntin' it if you got it...but if your lovely white mini-dress is so short that you need to keep tugging on the hem of it as you walk...maybe add a few inches. Just a thought - but i'm good as is.Final thought about the golf...as DJ heads up to the 18th tee, the crowd is chanting U-S-A! U-S-A! WTF is with Americans and their chanting of those letters. I've heard it in some very inane environments. Those people chanting that probably also have a loaded revolver in the glove box because it's their right to protect themselves...Anyway, had a very busy Father's Day working on the landscaping in the back yard. Did stop for a nice steak on the bbq and a nice Garrison Nut Brown. A bit late, but about to have a slice of spice cake with peanut butter icing and a side of butterscotch ice cream.
Yeah, Paulina, that was quite the outfit but you wear it well. And, it wasn't as trashy as Ricky Fowler's GF at a tournament he won a couple years ago. Still, congrats to Dustin Johnson for winning after that major fuck up at last year's U.S. Open when he 3 putted #18 to hand the win to Jordan Spieth.As for our American neighbours nobody can accuse them of not being patriotic, although they get lost in their enthusiasm from time to time. They do tend to be the most inward looking nation in the world though. All those "patrons" who like to yell and scream to hear themselves on TV later should take note of the European crowd who tend to politely clap after a good shot or putt.Today's Father's day feast was BBQ chicken, baked potato with melted cheese and bacon bits, green beans, cucumber and fresh rolls. Dessert was strawberry-rhubarb pie.
BBQ'd chicken and steak fajitas. Strawberry shortcakes.Dad Day gift was a bottle of the Tragically Hip Chardonnay!
McLame will replace his replacement? While some might not like Strombo, he is not to blame for the SFU sick fest which goes on and on and on. Viewers tuned out because they are pathetic leafers, plain and simple. The country is sick and tired of having the leaf forced on them ad nauseam.
They are cratering to the CotU leafools.I have no issues with Strombo. Compare his first season to what mclame pulled off. Pathetic that the complainers suggest his 'skinny jeans' turn them off the game. Yeah. Sure. Go back to your fucking clown show.Also, Strombo, an avowed Habs fan, barely mentioned his favourite team, because he knew he'd get ripped. The rest of the SFUckers are a cage full of organ monkeys for ml$e.
I'm happy for George. GTFO now. Best for his career not to be associated with that shitshow and I doubt he's too beat up about it. Leaving the SFU leafoolery aside and just look at the production...if none of the so-called on air 'talent' are able to (or don't have the balls to) convince their producers just how dumb the whole setup is with the idiots playing with their sticks in the studio and the whole 'magic puck' or whatever the hell it is and the fact that a good 50% of the staff are just not good hockey analysts, period, then Rogers is going to see a lot of lean years. Oh wait, McLame will save them. Never mind.
I don't care any more. Strombo couldn't save that mess anyway. Kypreos and pjsuck ruined it for me, oh, and still using the nearly blind and getting senile Bob Cole for Habs games? I said this before, Strombo wasn't really suited for that role anyway, he needs to go back to his roots and take over "Q" from Shad, who doesn't bring much to the table.HNIT became a leafool gong show long ago and like climate change it is here to stay.

Kind of ironic reading an article today on the NHL not choosing Quebec, Nordiques' fans, according to the article seems to say about Montreal what we are saying about the SFU. (though I think it goes deeper than that)Agree about the 'skiny jeans' moeman. Every single time I ever read any comments about SFU viewership being down, the jeans were mentioned."The anger or hatred toward Quebec's biggest city comes from the fact the media, TV shows and other cultural content seem to be from Montreal or about Montreal, he said."It's that big city you always hear about," Cauchon said. "We're sick of it. The people of Quebec City hate that everything they consume almost all comes from Montreal."http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/quebec-city-nordiques-fans-1.3643040
Montreal led the NHL in goals overturned by coach's challenges. MT also initiated among the least challengeshttps://twitter.com/AndrewBerkshire/status/744916645349572608
Hab's home opener will be vs the Pens Oct 18th. The Toronto cup now sucks even more by delaying the entire NHL season, which starts on Oct 12, by a week. Soon the regular season will be ending when the post-season usually does.
The full season schedule comes out tomorrow.
'Canning Strombo is like trading a good young centre with upside because his linemates drag his performance down.'According to Craig Custance:"Chicago traded Brandon Saad to Columbus, according to an NHL source, in part because of the possibility of an offer sheet from the Montreal Canadiens."I don't know if BBB has the gonads to make an offer sheet, seems to be an unwritten taboo.http://insider.espn.go.com/blog/craig-custance/insider/post?id=7934
Too radical a move for the dumpster diver.
Leaf get Viking goalie. When they sign Stinky and Tavers contenders. Oh Versey as well.
Andersen = Toskala redux. Stinky is going to Detroit Rock City. leaf are getting their franchise center this Friday. eMpTy has hired a personal trainer for Davey so he can play top line minutes and all two minutes of every PP.
Geoff wants to know what we fans are thinking going into the 'big' week?https://twitter.com/GMolsonCHC/status/745055144404910080

While I understand why he wants to play, I wish he was only ready for the Habs' season, not the torontocup.Gino RedaVerified account@GinoRedaTSNJust spoke with @CanadiensMTL @CP0031 ,says he's 100% ready to go. Good to go for World Cup and regular season. Full interview on TH at 7et
I hope Timmins doesn't draft Logan Brown, the Habs don't need a third line checking center like Bryan Boyle. Get some offense for fucks sake.
I agreee, I want the Rusky D man.
If Buffalo doesn't snag him first that's who Timmins will take. Either him or the Nylander kid.
Everybody ready to welcome the Las Vegas Desert Pimps?
Another bettman flop that Geoff Molson will have to help prop up.
Hookers and Blow is another fav.
TFS in the tranna cup is annoying but as long as he uses it like preseason training I am OK with it.
Looks like Liv kept TFS up all night long in that video, seemed so tired he struggled on a few words. Ah, fatherhood.
The UK is having a referendum tomorrow about being a part of Europe or not. So there has been a countdown of sorts until 23 June running for some time now. Frankly I am more worried about the countdown to Canada Day. With that fuckwit having his hand on the PFK trade button I am really worked up about him hitting it over the weekend. But like Juce if it is done the Habs will be dead to me for a long time...8 days and counting...
I keep telling myself it won't happen but after all the BS since MT pulled on PFK since he became his coach, I question their sanity.I'm hoping Molson can see the stupidity of even consider trading PFK and smack down the hammer on BBB's trigger finger. I also think Muller would have some input now as associate coach and he likes PFK - finally an ally in the organisation who recognises talent, woohoo! (according to his answer to a about which non-blues player is his favourite to watch, hehe, bet MT didn't know about that before he was hired)
Billy Bragg is on the Remain side. I am always on Billy Bragg's side.

Good luck. SinM knows.
good luck on the vote, I see it like the US election, two bad choices.
The staus quo is bollocks so I would voter Brexit and Trump and let the chips fall.

So...ahh...where is dat Arrogant Fuckface guy eh? I like him. He knows stuff. Like I'm not him. I bet if he were here he'd tell you to not worry because he knows and you, I mean we all don't. He's probably right and knows best like how it's in the best interest of the team to pick the best available Quebecois player. Is probably wat he tinks, right? Frogs right...pfff. Doze guys man dey know hockey. Dey know dat PK is too flashy for ol' AF so should probly go. Bet we could get Vinnie AND Fleury in a tree way deal for Price and Subban. Might even get a 5th round pick. Trus doze guys AF GQ. Dey know. You...we don't.
I understood all of that because I'm tri-lingual.
Molson will not allow the dumpster diver to trade PFK no matter how much Arrogant Fuckface hates him. Captain Kirk will be coaching the team by Christmas and even Rejean Tremblay will welcome him. Now, if BBB can get off his arse and somehow get that #4 and snag Dubois the world will look a little brighter.
Would it kill this damn organisation to at least PERSONALLY wish PFK good luck? Why can't they ever endorse him publicly? is it against the rules? Screw 'em, I'm rooting for you, PFK!https://twitter.com/GMolsonCHC

Andrew Berkshire @AndrewBerkshire 1hYou can tell insiders want clicks when they float Subban trade rumors. Been 4 straight summers of this BS.
Love it. Beats the constant SFU leaf drone.
PFK is the most vociferously devoted Hab today and tomorrow and on July 2nd.
The SFUckers want PFK gone from Montreal because they are, and always have been, jealous of his abilities, skills and larger than life personality. The would love to see him gone from the leaf's division so that he doesn't detract from their glorious plan to put Auston Matthews and possibly Stamkos on the tsn/snet/hnit pedestal for all of Canada to worship at. Banish him to the hinterlands of western Canada so that easterners will be forced to stay up to the wee hours of the morning to watch him play with McSaviour.Geoff Molson didn't step in and sign PFK to an 8 year deal to allow some fucking has-been or hater to trade him away two years later. Not gonna happen. I don't like the arrogant know-it-all berkshire but he is right about the click bait and I am guilty of it myself. tsn is just trying to generate revenue with all their bullshit trade/draft hype. IATG.Also, I don't think Carey Price would allow PFK to be traded and I bet he would tell BBB: you trade him and I'm gone in two years.
The SFUckers have already begun the post-rebuild throat cramming. I thought tsn would calm down a bit but they are up against some seriously sick fucks at snet. I've said it before, it'll get worse before it gets better and it'll never get better. The SFU are desperate and they will flamethrow the other 6 Canadian teams to prop up their leaf.

HabsLaughs @HabsLaughs 1h1 hour agoCongrats to Marc Bergevin who almost signed the guy who just won the Calder. Not bad!
HabsLaughs @HabsLaughs 4h4 hours agoCan the Habs leave Michel Therrien unprotected in the expansion draft? Not that anyone would claim him...I just want to have the option.
I do not want to see PFK traded. Even working with the yoke of EMty on him he soars. If he was let free we would win the cup this year. He says a lot of stuff that is good, and a lot of stuff I will put in the immature catagory. His relentles self promotion is jarring to the crotch corrner people and likey his teamates. It would be to me if he had not already proved over and over his heart is in his chest.
If I can paraphrase Moses: "Set my PK free!!!"
Or even Donny Osmond "Let people go"
"let *my* people go"
It's great what Giordano's doing for his community and we ought not belittle that...but really? Is the fucking Mob running the league now? Let's not pretend race has nothing to do with the way PK is treated. But a name like Giordano. Uncle Sal maybe 'convinced' the league (or whomever votes on this award) to go with the 'obvious' choice. *No offence intended to any Italian FHFers. Fucking league.And BBB could have gained a bit of credit back by simply stating "WE ARE NOT TRADING PK....trades are hard."
BBB would never say that, it would be too much like he was supporting him or something and when did BBB or MT ever support or endorse PFK for anything, anything at all? Yet, even with the way they always paint him in a negative light publicly, teams are still calling BBB about a possible trade.
"There's no question, if we are going to win a championship, we need [Price] there," said Subban, who had 51 points in 68 games. "But we can't forget that we didn't get enough from everyone else this year. We can talk about Carey, but I don't think we had enough guys that performed well enough for us to make the playoffs. It comes down to that. I don't think we did enough as an organization to make ourselves a playoff team regardless of whether we had Carey Price or not."There is no question that if Carey Price comes back we are instantly a better team but if we think that we are just going to walk into next year and make the playoffs because Carey is back, this League is too good. You saw it this year and through the playoffs, it's too good and we need everybody to be better from the top of the organization down."Everything he said is true, right down to those last 7 words which will be held against him by those at the 'top of the organization' until they fade into the past and he probably knows it.
That is just a fucking awesome statement by the team's best player. He's almost daring them to react..."come on you fucking pussies..trade me. I double dog dare ya you fucking knobs"...
I dare Molson to put out another tweet asking what we fans think about that.
That is a leader quote. He's earned the right to call out all in the organization. PK has always held up his part of the bargain, from the day he was selected in the draft. Love it.
who is he calling out? If you want to kill the King wounds dont count.
Maybe the truck company ought to be sued for short sightedness and dimwittedness by thinking ZK was the guy you want to attach your name to, considering his background issues...The Journal de Montreal says in it's lawsuit the company claims it had loaned the Ford F-350 to Kassian in the hopes of establishing a business relationship with a well known sports personality.
I always thought the "my girlfriend was at the wheel, not me" part of the story deserved further scrutiny. If this doesn't get settled out of court,...
The democrats overtaking the floor trying to get action on gun control policy need to have someone pull a Frank Underwood.
insidredger raking shit again.
The only thing he said that was true is that PK is a huge component of the Montreal Canadiens and the fabric of the community. Otherwise it was complete and utter nonsense.Fuck MB. Fuck MT. PK ain't goin' nowhere.
I saw that quote about PK too Called it for what it is - traffic driving bullshit. Dredger has as much "inside" info as I do - fuck him!
What did he say?
Here's what I saw...Les Canucks et les Oilers sont très agressifs pour faire l'acquisition de Subban.(Darren Dreger de TSN)

Is he at the hotel bar?
At the end of the day, only the shadow knows.
I've never been a big talker when it comes to trade rumours but I love how PFK is stealing the show from the SFUckers.
Seems like the entire 'hockey world' is buzzing about PFK, now speculation because his presser moved from 5:30 to 6:45.No, I don't have a gun.
It's more FHFun than the SFU auston potential points tracker.
Andrew Berkshire @AndrewBerkshire 5m5 minutes agoSo media with a vested interest in generating hype and other markets are all in on a Subban trade, Montreal media seems highly skeptical.

I love Sara Diamond!
sarah hammer is great as well
"John ShannonVerified account@JSportsnetMe: Jim, you caused a bit of a storm today..Benning: About PK? I called. And so did 20 other teams."So much for that 'defensive liability' label.
You think DGMB was taught a lesson today?
Canadiens Montréal @CanadiensMTL 43s43 seconds ago Buffalo, NY"When teams call about P.K., I listen, but I say no." - Marc Bergevin on the numerous rumours surrounding a trade involving SubbanAll he has to do is say PFK is NOT for sale, he won't get calls and there won't be rumours, but he won't do that, he won't give PFK a foxhole. I guess he'd rather waste his time answering the phone to say 'no' instead of putting his efforts to good use - no wonder it's hard to make trades FFS.
So what was the press con for?
Other than pre-draft GM media availability I have no friggin idea.
The lesson he should have learned is how the majority of other teams see the value of PFK that he and his empty side-kick refuse to see.
Finally, Bargain Bergy sticks his head out of his foxhole long enough to throw cold water on all the SFUcker speculation. About time. Anybody with half a brain knows if you trade a stud D like PFK away you spend the next 10 years trying to draft another one. PFK is going nowhere. Karlsson is going nowhere. Doughty is going nowhere. You can't trade for those guys until the very end of their careers.You can't put any blame on PK for last season's fucking fiasco. That falls on 1. BBB for not addressing his goalie problem soon enough. 2. Clueless empty not being able to figure out what to do besides throw Davey out there to accomplish zilch. 3. Max floating around for 3 months scratching his head trying to figure out what was wrong and doing SFA in the meantime. Finally, when the carnage was over Habs management did the only thing it could: Blame the anglo (Ramsey).
Its a culture clash. PFK is NBA and Emty is Eddie Shore french. PFK does not have a chip on his shoulder he has a well earned brick. It dont matter a motherfuck cause he sets the ice on fire. And thats a venn diagram that DGMB should appreciate, fire on ice is what we are all aboot.
I got drunk for the Brexit cause no matter who wins its the end of world
when your moving around all the time, you cant fermet beer. On the bright side no more drunk drivers.
Holy Pernell Fucking Karl, Batman! I can't believe my ears! Finally, BBB actually spoke well of PFK even saying what he does on his own time, off ice is good as long as he comes in fit and ready to work.
What the duck is insidredger smoking anyway? Why would BBB give up the 9th pick for Cam Fowler?
UK voted to leave EU, Cameron resigns. Pound drops to lowest level since 1985BBC also reporting it plummeted faster than financial crisis of 08 - wow #Brexit "@NahlahAyed: Pound drops to lowest level since 1985 #cbc”
This opens a whole new can of worms.https://constitution-unit.com/2016/06/20/the-road-to-brexit-16-things-you-need-to-know-about-what-will-happen-if-we-vote-to-leave-the-eu/
I remember feeling terrified in '95, 1% the other way and what would today be?
Without getting too political - it's a right shit storm over here now. Cameron has resigned, A vote of Non-confidence in the labour leader has been called for, the EU is pissed, Scotland is pissed, London is pissed and yet nothing is going to happen about Brexit itself for at least 6 months. So it's going to be fun to say the least!
I cant decide if the MAN won or lost. England is about to get a lot smaller, N Ireland and Scotland are saying hey, refurendums are real.
Back to hockey, here's hoping BBB strikes gold.
Based upon the Brexit PFK gets traded.
there is sure to be a franchise player available at 9. Is it Logan Brown, Keller, Jost, or even Gauthier, Bean?
