    I never get tired of that picture of the young lady shoveling the sidewalk. Is that outside of Chez Paris or somewhere else.

    Went bar hopping last night, Picaroons, Big Tide Brewing Company, Hop Scotch Whisky Bar (my fave), The Eightys Arcade Bar, Five and Dime and finished up at Callahans. Haven't done that in years, probably going to need a nap later.

    1. I like re-using it in à propos situations. I think it might be Chez Parée. Maybe 29 can take a quick visit to confirm.

      Shovelling out more snow on a sunny Saturday. Today its the flower garden area. Got to give then some breathing room and open up the beds to the sunshine.

      theM., you know its another afternoon game right?! CatCH a few ZZZs early.

    2. It's not Chez Paree. There are no residential houses like that across from Chez Paree. I am in full examination mode, I will look for, um, more clues

  3. Teams that have changed their coaches have been winning, teams coming back from the bye-week have not. Habs fall under both a new coach and first game back, so I'm hoping they strike positive under both categories. GYMFHG!

    1. Wait, I think they are the only team coming out of the buy-week to play under a new coach, so I think that gives them an advantage to buck the bye-week trend.

  4. Plaid said he used to feel like he had “someone breathing down my neck all the time” Not the fist time he's said something like that, I think the poor guy sometimes got scratched or sent down even when he played well. Let's hope he gains some confidence.

  5. I had to know. The woman shovelling the snow is Erica Simone, a New York artist. She has a series of Nue York photos (as in Nude York I guess). http://ericasimone.com/gallery/nue-york/

    The boys all sound relieved with the change. I just heard he has a 5 year contract, so we'll have him for at least 3 years so let's give him some rope and hope he doesn't choose to hang himself with it.

      Squid is a shooter. He needs somebody to set up those one-timers of his. I nominate CHe. Max and gCHuk are both shooters as well. Let them sort it out.

  9. Lot of talk about the Senaturds being 4pts behind the Habs with 3 games in hand but FLA 4pts behind the sens with 1 game in hand so things could change. A leaf win may be a good thing.

  39. last yr, and this yr when they took that barnstorming CHarge outta gate, all i wanted was for them to go 3-2-1 rest of season. since then, they went 18-18-7. i am uneasy with firing somebody who is in first place like juice said, but it is what it is. there was/is plenty of blame to share with the primary reason: soft play.

    Clod wont allow that, so i guess thats a good thing. if he can manage this team into a favourable first round match-up, anything is possible at that point b/c carey will finally have a playoff round victory.

      Nobody and I mean nobody on this team is untouchable, Price included. If, by the deadline, this bunch has dropped to wild card status and are still falling, I would field calls on anybody. Good high-end prospects, 1st round picks for the likes of Weber, Price, Pacioretty -- bring it on. Time to tear this sucker down and get a true franchise player like McDavid or Matthews. Who's with me?

    I'm watching some golf and ironically just read this amusing analogy: "Bargain Bergy keeps dredging the pond for Titleists and only comes up with old range balls aka 5th line puds. Too Funny!!

    One poster listed off a ton of elite high-end centers (Seguin, e.g.) and scoring wingers (Hall, e.g.) who have been traded recently yet the estimable GM keeps saying "they are not available". Bullshit Marc. I hope your next 5 year plan works out for you. It starts next year btw.

      Jack should stick to baseball or get some new glasses. I'm not buying any of those lame excuses. I watched a supposedly weak defensively but big, fast Jets team run the Habs out of their own building. Connor Hellebucyk could have had a ham sandwich during that game and still hold the puny Habs off. I remember when there were 6 minutes left in the 2nd period Montreal only had 11, count'em -- 11 -- shots on goal. If Price hadn't brought his A game (finally) CJv2 would have been supremely embarrassed in his not so triumphant return.

      I highly doubt they can beat the Rangers in New York and the Islanders are red hot lately so that leaves the SFU-loved leaf this Saturday night to maybe get Claude a win.

      One good thing, I guess, the Sens lost Hoffman and Stone today and Bobby Ryan is gone as well. That will probably slow them down. Maybe the Habs can back into the playoffs.

      You keep living in your fantasy world Jack.

  49. I mercifully missed CJ2's second first game. I dvr'd it but it sounded like such a dud i didn't bother watching past the first. Didn't like what I was seeing. The one thing I will say about BBB and his 'trading for a top centre' is hard thing. He hasn't failed to pull surprise moves, so I expect he has something up his sleeve and if so, it's probably not something any of the so-called experts have talked about to date. So I wouldn't even venture a guess, but I can't see him leaving this team as is. That's my 2¢.
