Steve Ott? Really?Easiest nickname ever will be 'So'.
The day where the SFU gets caught proving they know absolutely nothing about 29 teams.Also, since when has the league started counting a player's first goals in the game. Oh, wait.
OK try this one. Dumpster DivingSomeday i'll figure out how to link to an image properly.
That one worked.
I have to hit the zoom button on that page to see the pic. I think it's worth it.
We can all admit that Feb. was a shit month but since when do wins in OT and SO all of a sudden become suspect? They are won, after regulation. FHFun to see the SFU squeeze as many lame insults as they can find. Bonus, their leaf is 5 'regulation' wins in their last 15. Report that.
Decisions decisions. Which branch of the SFU to tune into? Fat Blob and Inside Dredger or....never mind my mind is made up. That's all I needed to hear.

Biron, Reid and Ferraro balance out the crud and tools.
Its on the table, N8, Jewelson, McD for DooCH. Get on the table mable the money is not for a haircut.
I am okay with SO, we need a car with some push
S8 from Ronin https://youtu.be/OedEEcjqMr0
It seems that for the first time in decades, our system actually has a system behind it.
DGMB tells N8, your not going to be traded. Pack your bags Nate!
Habs fan Jay Baruchel will join the TSN panel. Do they know?
Which reminds me I have yet to see Goon. And I suspect he is on TSN to press the sequel comign out soon.
I got Goon as a Xmas gift a few years ago but haven't watched it yet. Not sure what I'm waiting for. Maybe I knew there would be a sequel.
Actually, Jay Baruchel pretty much said what most Habs fans feel:1. The organization has been too conservative for too long.2. Most of us hated the PK trade.3. Go get Duchene regardless of cost aka Damn the torpedos full speed ahead!!
I missed BaruCHel. I just turned on SNOT and they were talking leaf so I go to TSN and they were talking leaf.
I feel as though the eMTy stench has finally been cleansed from the locker room with the trade of DDD. Bergevin finally saw the light with those two boat anchors.
He corrected 2 mistakes but he'll never be able to fix the PK debacle.
Poor KidA was on the air and a cop pulled him over while talking on the phone.
He just called back, said he got off with a lecture but he's worried about what his mom will say.
I'm like Moey, after they let Saku walk there is no one on this team I'm particularly attached to. The one guy I thought was worthy is gone so I don't care who they trade now, they can blow the whole thing up for all I care. Saku was a really good player who never got the proper help during his career in Montreal and I liked him but the last player I truly admired was Kirk Muller. I was devastated when they traded him.Maybe because I'm so much older now, I can't feel the same about the young players today as when I was a kid looking up to guys like Cournoyer, Lafleur, Robinson and Dryden.Funny, to my kids and grandkids I'm the hero!
I've had the tsn SFU on all morning, I like O'Niell, an admitted leafool but he tells it like it is. Ray Ferraro and Aaron Ward also. Marty Biron is too whiny and Dave Poulin is meh. The rest of them can go into the leaf toilet bowl. Fuck'em.I don't know if any of you saw it, when they were interviewing Pierre Doiron in Ottawa he told Duthie he wanted to trade Brent Wallace (who covers the Turds) for Sarah Orlesky in Winnipeg. That was funny!
Hi-lite of the day so far the M. I'd make that trade all day too! Sarah is a cutie and not a leaffool. Big news on TSN. Jay and Dan are coming back.Hey did you click on my Dumpster Diver link above? I was thinking of you when I made that.
Yeah, on in the background. Biron is knowledgeable but a bit hokey. Lots of pinheads but not as many as snet (will not click on that cesspool). Craig button is another waste of air. Sara is spectacular.
... and now the have the Ottawa lump/rumourmonger garrioch telling Guy Boucher how to coach.
Someone spotted at the Children's wearing a 76 half-half jersey. (Habs/Preds)
heh I think 29's taller. PK signed both halves.
Error above as I thought Dave Reid was on the panel. It is Poulin. A pud.
@Saint Paddy, yes I clicked on the Dumpster Diver, he is hard at work as usual!I hate snet as well, it is a stinkier leaf cesspool than the tranna sports network. I haven't watched a game through the week for sometime, mostly 'cause they've sucked but also I can't stand the snet blowhards. I can barely tolerate hnic.Side note: that win last night was the only home victory for the month of February. Talk about cutting it close.
Canadiens acquire forward Dwight King from the Los Angeles Kings, in return for a conditional 4th round pick in 2018.
'The Habs have used over half of their available cap space on Steve Ott and Dwight King.'
SCREW U GUYS. I HATE U ALL (sans steve et le maritimer)DDD for another sac of dicks! thanks a lot u stupid GQGM! u are trying way too hard to one up Goat and SS. i wanna puke! like somebody else said... what? are they trying to load up with d-bags to take down our opponent with us in the first round?! g-dammit!DDD is exactly our d.briere this yr! he had post-season redemption written all over him like bbd-b.to is.'sigh' m. d'agostini, c. huet, j.halak, e. cole, squid, CHip, blanCHe, TiTs, sekac, thomas jr, diaZZling, weber1.0, and in reverse: davis drewiski, n. dawes, d. smith-pelly, d. dubnyk, son of jon davidson, steve 'even cheapshotter than shaw' ott, some guy named dwight...please please please git yer hands off that telephone. do not eject N8! gawd... this is worse than mr president knowing that big red button does what?!

Canadiens acquire forward Andreas Martinsen from the Colorado Avalanche, in return for forward Sven Andrighetto.
i was just gonna add to my tirade, b/c i totally forgot about how Goat almost got the scumbag who ruined zednik's career and the time we picked up kassian for CHarger!and now this omg! another one! mr GM, if u dont KO the bruins this year, im gonna knock u out! how did this team go from a 1st place club to one re-building for the playoffs!?
Surely there must be gold at the end of the rainbow??
Guy from Avs is a total Viking, we should call him Rollo or Floki
tick tock, tick tock
Maybe he'll be wheeling and dealing with Vegas.
Methinks CJv2 had a lot of influence on the CHanges. Plus, DGMB said he wouldn't move the top prospects and he didn't. Now time to firm up the lines.
Oh well, let's just wait and see.
OK...so if nothing else the team has gotten larger...but this last trade has me shaking my head. Ghetto wasn't part of the problem...Alas he is gone and we have some 8 minute a game wonder to complement the other 8 minute a game wonders...Meaning that the top 2 lines will play 18-20 minutes a game each...Mind you only 4 of them are scoring any goals so I guess that's ok.On a really positive "I'm not worthy" note - Moeman - your attention to detail with this blog is outstanding. I jumped with joy when I opened the laptop and saw that jar of Map-o-spread in that hallowed prime position. Merci beaucoup!!Loved PFK's presser this afternoon too. Fucking class! What I want tomorrow is for the Habs to win by two goals with PFK getting an empty netter with 1 minute 16 seconds left as the 'Canes try to mount a comeback. PFK 1st Star, TFS second Star, BBQ 3rd StarGo you fucking Habs Go!!
Forsberg has been ripping it up. 10 goals in 5 games with consecutive hat-tricks.
Its the little things that are FHFun and easy. : )
Your going to love Rollo. he may be a little mixed up, but he loves to battle for whatever side he is on.
N8 can beathe a little easier now.
With a new Viking in the ranks, this team Ott to be King of the East.
Merci Ghetto! You never really got a shot but thanks for being the best Hab you could.
Habs can't win with the SFU. They've always been "too small" in their minds. Traded for bigger guys today and I'm hearing them question if this is the way to go in a league that's going more towards smaller and speedier players...
MB says the trade for a scorer just wasn't there. And it appears to be so as nobody big moved. So he says instead of scoring more, get bigger, defend better. But scoring is still an issue.So you trade a 4th to the Kings for Dwight King, a 10-15/yr goal scorer. But, even though he's pushing 40, the Kings turn right around and trade a 4th for Jarome Iginla, who still put up 22-30 goals over the past 3 years. So if scoring was your #1 target, if you couldn't afford the big guns, why not add that experience to your team? He still plays a pretty strong game.King is still shocked - doesn't sound thrilled about the move.
With all due respect to fhfriend oleg, the biggest improvement BBB made was ridding the team of two smurfs and the arrogant bully. I'm underwhelmed by all the Dumpster Diving today but that's what he does, in season anyway. If he pulls the trigger on a big trade it will be off-season like PFKBBQ. I could see a gCHuk/N8 for Duchene/Barrie move or something similar.In the meantime, it will be different having all these whack-jobs playing for the Habs. At least they shouldn't get run out of their own building like Winnipeg did recently.
GMGQ: there better be
I'm actually good that MB didn't sell the farm (specifically CHevy) for a Duchene. The Patches/Dano/Che line is working (though Dano's offensive numbers have dried up). gCHuk I think is just starting to get his knee back to normal. I'm not sure kidA's hand is 100%. If those two and Leko (who was scoring at a decent pace to start the season) can form a solid second line that scores regularly over the next few weeks, then this team could actually compete in the east. Go Habs Go.
Unless the secondary scoring is revived, the Habs are probably toast. Once that top line is shut down, there's nothing else. Should be some fighting though.
Our top line is unstoppable, we are the Exxon Valdez headinf for the reef, we are waterworld.Our historical model is Stalingrad. Which BTW was only won after Nikia Krushchov shot the previous commander and took control, before the playoffs everyone has to watch Enimies at the Gate. Plan the parade people, the chances of us not winning the cup are now the same as it being 70 degrees in Feburary.
(that previous comment was supposed to be in reference to juice's rainbow)maritimer...smurf 1 : DDDbully : AF?smurf 2: ghetto?i hope they DONT do that CHucky-N8 trade for dutCH-barrie, but stupid gms do stupid things.all u guys can laugh and snicker, but im old enuf to be afraid of the smurfs. im still haunted by TF making bad history vs us, DB ruining halaks run before he came to help us, and MSL making TFS look TFS (totallyfxxxstupid) after that.im cheering for DDD-lucic-CHicken to run all the way to face (us?)
oleg, you got it.
The DDD, Pretzel logic, Chicken line is frightening
I am happy with what we got, I would have liked to seen Vanish but that is hard man to see. We are MOAR bigger, Rollo will not let anyone run TFS without executing the blood eagle at center ice. We had way to many smurfs. GHetto was another player who never got a full shot, but lets up we now can bring up CH who at the AHL level anyway is a superstar. Our game plan as always is to win one nothing, and as I have said many times if you ever played civilization it is way easier to prevent goals than score them. So we have a team of punishers, nasty, mean dirty, who open up little gunports for our three snipers to fire through. Its a valid plan to win the cup.
Our five new players have 16 goals between them, but they could conquer France in a weekend.
I am very glad to see DDD gone, but I admire what he did with so little. Everyone who has everplayed hockey dreams of playing in the NHL, and to do that and contribute to the Montreal Canadiens is a monumental achievement. DDD I salute you.
Thursday we should not play hockey. Cage match BBQ vs PFK for the two points.
Its like Highlander, there can only be one number one defenceman of the Montreal Canadiens playing hockey at one time.
but steve...that kind of play is exactly why everybody here was calling for CHockula's head then eMpTy's and soon CJ2's!im perfectly happy playing that style, but you better have your m.kean's, c.ludwig's, b.skruddland's, m.mcphee's, bigbird, petr, b. smith, CH24, and not softies like CHe, plexxx, and heck, (sometimes cpt patCHes!)in the new nhl... coaches like cpt21, and that guy in otw are supposed to rule. thats why i too was hoping to get vanish2.0 did he move? i bet he woulda come cheap like last time if GMGQ wasnt so focused on collecting garbage.oh... and in regards to the viking and this rollo guy... dont forget what i said earlier about character guys, clutch players, stay-at-home defensemen, defensively reliable guys like davis drewiski. omg... i hate myself. i wanna barf.
Defence first seems to be an organizational thing. Been that way for decades. Have they drafted a top 6 forward since Lafleur and Shutt? I don't think so. Maybe Saku.
Oleg Rangor could never kill Rollo and vice versa, thats what we have to live with now
Vanish went to Florida. He will do well there because he does not need sunscreen, when your invisible the Sun is just a big bright light in the sky
I just have to make a Taboo ref " I got a use for you" Today DGMB confirmed he will eat human flesh to win the Stanley cup.
we have gone from being an Olive of Olay team to a bad case of herpes
Did we win?
yes, we are like Braveheart before he was betrayed drawen and quartered
moeman!! kill this thread! start the game day. omg u guys! none of u told me. tm is The Return! WHY DIDNT ANYBODY TELL ME INSTEAD OF WASTING OUR TIME ON ALL THIS GARBAGE PICK UP?!wake up u guys!! tm is The Return of the last Jedi!(steve: that was so fxxxxing gross)
