Other Canadian teams know /see it like it is outside the gta. Nice shot taken."We've had players come in that didn't get here because they have those great sticks, great reads naturally. That has to be developed, and it's going to take time to develop that," Maurice told reporters. "The mistakes that I made, I did just a horrible job in relation to my colleague (Toronto Maple Leafs coach) Mike Babcock in selling our age and the mistakes."When (the Maple Leafs) have lost a game, it's just a wonderful learning experience, and they win and it's a triumph of character. We have the opposite thing going on here. But that's my choice, because I don't ever want to walk into a season and say we're not here to win the Stanley Cup."According to NHLNumbers.com, the Maple Leafs are the league's eighth-youngest club (26.8 years old on average), while the Jets are the second-youngest, at 25.8.
Good stuff from the Jets coach. Should be some good fodder for ol' crotch. Wonder who's side he'll take?
I always liked Maurice's candor...except when he was a leaf.The big question will be how much of the 22 minute pre-game show will be spent talking leaf even when they don't play for another 3 days?
I'll keep you posted.
Get out your stop watch.
Great theme on the thread today btw. Love that old school poster, especially the little "professional" dig.
I was inspired.
Wow. Simply beautiful. Hopefully the rest of Canada will see this tonight on the nationally televised game.
SFU loves TFS because they can use him as ammo to shit on the Habs.
Unfortunately, I don't think the rest of Canada matters much to the inwardly looking gta. I think they might acknowledge there is another country of 300 million or so just south of them that they sell stuff to.
No doubt the SFU has had a hate on for the ROC for many decades. Being supporters of losers raises their bias level to sickening heights. I've predicted, many times, that it will get worse, way worse, before it never gets better. These sick fucks double down every Saturday on their hate for the 6 Canadian teams. They don't give a fuck.e.g..VAN - they cheered on the broons over the Canucks in the SC Finals, their glee at the treatment of the Sedans was putridEDM - they feel justified in slagging the Oilers restructuring, no mirrors in the GTACAL - they prop up Lanny and Dougie as great leaf, Flames Cup winnersWPG - imagine if Laine got a tenth of the coverage, they will shill in Matthews regardlessOTT - the 'battle of Ontario' where the Sens have been far better, including a SC Finals, never mentioned, cue 1967MTL - I'll leave it at the Boom Boom Geoffrion tribute ceremony disgustingly not covered, in order to spend 100% of their show covering tie fucking domi
Sedans = Sedins
Not to mention they were cheering for Team USA and phat Phil in Sochi as one of "their boys". Fucking pukes.
Sochi, yeah, I remember that scumbag Heely kept chanting 'Kessel just needs 1 to tie it up" . Sick POS. They didn't care one iota about Canada or TFS making Olympic history - he didn't serve their anti=Hab purpose then. Then consesus was any goalie could have won gold with the team in front of him. Only when it suits their self-fellating modus-operandi.
The score was 1-0 Canada at the time. What a mathematical geniass.
The SFU wanted Bernier on the Olympic team. Bernier. You'd think theyd've learned their lesson with the(Ir) Cujo fiasco, where it took Jacques Martin to tell Pat Quinn he erred in shilling his leaf goalie over the patriotic and non-traitorous thing to do and play Brodeur, the second best goalie in the world, at the time. (waynEgo fucking over Patrick Roy was also traitorous but waynEgo had become an American by then, so to me, he did not represent my country).
Speaking of the gta, I watched a piece on the National last night about how, pretty soon, nobody but the filthy rich will be able to afford to live in Toronto because of skyrocketing housing prices and rents. You could buy 4 or 5 nice properties in New Brunswick for what you pay for a single family there. Maybe the millenials will find out other places exist outside Hogtown. We need young skilled people down here, check it out!
Che out with LBI. Ott, Andreas Martinsen (Thor?) in.
Shit.Oh well, both Thor and So are in. (see what I did there?)
Sounds like it's going to be a tough and tumble kind of game tonight...just fucking win! I don't care how...just fucking win! I M hiding my ass and streaming the cbc again tonight sonlets hope they go easy on the leaf Bull shit love. And I agree completely with earlier comments - fucking leaf never even expect to win...when they don't it is a learning process for a young team...when they actually win they are fucking world bearers. The most deluded fucking bunch of losers ever. Babs is onto a beauty winner too...he has an answer for everything and he is an absolute representation of everything that is wrong with the city of Toronto. Deluded bunch of fucks...
When you called the Sedins the Sedans, I thought yeah they should just be called Volvos. The Canucks have got a lot of mileage out of them and they tend to play pretty safe hockey. Actually Volvo could name a couple of vehicles after them, the H22 and D33 (I think, not sure which one is which number).
Agree, which is why I corrected myself and did not remove/replace my post because Sedans just seemed fitting.
I want Cryder to meet the God of ThunderGYFHG but not to hard we dont want first place
Working on a seafood mushroom Israeli couscous risotto. I'm kind of drunk already so I don't know what I'm drinking anymore. Will KYP
I like to drink while I cook. Risottos take a while. These facts are problematic
I use to cook bacon shirtless. Happened once.
The risotto creaminess is happening. It's a miracle of science!
One ladle of broth at a time. It is broth right?
Gonna need nick help on some of these players tonight according to juce's lineup
King = HRHOtt = SoMartinsen = ThorBenn = J&B
Great pic of The Flower celebrating his 1000th 36 years ago, with a 15 year old Mario (nice seats) right behind him.
listening to 690 CJ2 is talking like this team was a pee wee team who had never played organized hockey before. In retospect eMTy should not have been allowed to pass out more than water bottles behind the bench.
In honour of Thor. https://youtu.be/SYjlisHj6EM
Now the panel is sucking Torts' cock? Give me a break
Better than Bab'cock'?
I love you guys.
- not a single leaf logo in the intro vid- a DDD sighting though- mclame worried about CHé- snet has some new howdy doody guy on Habs games- kypreosuck should never comment about contribution- friedman tries to be funny, funniest thing, his hair colour- during TDD the snet crew said HRH didn’t want to be a Hab (zero proof)- kypreosuck ‘no question about that’ line is lame, mclame-ish lame- hahahrudey seems totally lost to make an informed comment, about the Habs- howdy doody is taller than KidA, two things, gel and a very long forehead- media capital of the world and no ref-cam, 4k or 360ºVR- why do these wads always talk about ‘swagger’?- mclame calls the CH tonight’s anchor (um, try the last 50 years pud)- man I love Mario Lemieux, best player ever, move to Montréal Mario!- the pic of Mario behind the CH bench with The Flower being ovation’d, cool- kypreosuck, when asked about the Jets, talks leaf- side note: how great were Paul Maurice’s comments about the whining excuse maker Blabs?- oops, my mistake EDM game will be in 360ºVR- never thought I’d see an hnit Burrows love-in (considering the shit the SFUs have spewed about him)- Torts piece, (by the horrible christine ‘nepotism’ simpleton)- Could anyone imagine Torts as a Habs coach? I’d just love to see him tell mario tremblay to fuck off- mclame, aka mouth-full-of-ol-crotch-jizz drops in a ‘never wrong’ about his partner in slime- so, to answer the earlier Q today, hnit dropped the ’t’ in hnit tonight, so far
juce posted this earlier today, it is FHFantastic;http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/carey-price-makes-young-mali-s-dream-come-true-1.3311036
CHicken breast stuffed with asparagus and havarti. Proseco (which turns into Negroni, depending on the score).
My God is mclame ever fucking annoying.I have CHeese graters that grate less than this arrogant moron.
Mclean says F em aral, I always thought it was e fem eral.
OK, songs for all the new guys. We nic them all. Maybe each player needs a theme song to go along with it...Martinsen=Thor - KISS - God of ThunderKing=HRH - Lorde - RoyalsOtt=So - Peter Gabriel - Don't Give Up (feat. Kate Bush) or Sledgehammer - From the So Album.Benn=J&B - so many Whiskey song options, but I'm going off the chart with Irish Rovers - Wasn't That a Party!? Coulda Benn the Whiskey, mighta Benn the gin. Coulda Benn the 3 or 4 six packs..
I may have to give this over to blog St. Pad. Maybe in exchange for the secret stash he 'found'.
Anytime someone mentions the Winnipeg Jets, first thing I think of is Sara Orlesky. Is it me?
I always have images of the refs allowing the Jets playing pinball with KidA.
Sara has been exiled to Portage and Main for some unseemly TSN reason we don't know. She deserves much better
Everything bounces off of Big Buff.
Sara Sara Sara
It IS you. But not ONLY you. Guess what I'm saying is that you're normal insofar as the rest of us are normal. Not sure how normal that is.
29, agree 100%, every report she makes is reasoned, well written and professional. She's like a Manitoban CHantale Macabée.
I knew it was me!
I was thinking of the singer, never heard of the reporter
(un)fortunately, like moi, she is from here
Say hello to her, in person. (kiss on both cheeks)
CAF in NYC. Nicely done MSG.
Boy the Rags have some pretty pathetic banners in their rafters
The CBC golden stream is breaking up over his anthem
I thought we get Bob Cold.
Another mistake, there's some lame ref-cam happening.OK, too funny, Romanuk actually introduced himself.
The CBC stream actualy sucks tonite, first time ever.
Shooting gallery. Hit the net FFS.
Great chance by the MOM line. But Thor didn't drop the hammer.
oof Dish. it's ok, we have D depth!
Should have been a high-stick penalty against the Rags.
I hate the mandate that refs shouldn`t pick up the sticks.
Never Forget This
A thing of beauty that was and still is.
The TFS original stare-down.
Thor drops the hammer
At least Romanuk gets n8's name right.Bob Cold would've given us a Bo-loo.
Thanks. I just snorted Coke Zero through my nose. Was taking it easy on the drink, but might have to hit something harder now.
How many lives does the snake that bites PleXXXe have?
Habs benCH looks rather big(ger).
S.o on the F.o!
He's a SoFo MoFo.
St. Pad, U R on FHFire!
Nope. Looks like BBQ.
Too funny on how none of us got the scorer.BBQ!
Credited to BBQ (off of Glendining but we`ll take it)
Ever since we dumped eMTy and DDD the Hockey Gods have blessed us for the sacrifice
Dish is clogged up.
Dish better lay off the coke
nice quick whistle
Yes and I'd suggest intentionally so.
OK, I'm gonna be touCH rude here but when Grant Fuhr got a shutout was it called a 'Coke Zero'. (see upthread for what inspired me).
That was in, Refs pull the intent to whistle crap.
Image if we had Thor and Lego, we could have made a little shield wall to shut down
Imagine if we had a puck-moving Dman!
juce, we do but SerCHY isn't ready yet.
he cries more than John Bohner
Heh, they show ol' crotch prepping his mclame puppet.
McDonut is a decent D man. Where did the Rags find that stuD?
We are playing like we are 462 lbs heavier
gary gawling, a horrible NHLer, splooges all over McDonut.
two crap plays by patches, sorry McGomez
Just realized I forgot we had another new guy.Brandon Davidson = Harley - Gotta go with some CanCon - Steppenwolf - Born to Be Wild
mitCH took a walnut crunch for the team.Speaking of McDonut's, St. Pad, how were the CHurro(s) the other day/
Here's hoping 29 is enjoying a really creamy risotto.
Not a bad first...and i haven't heard the word "leaf" mentioned once. Not in the preface or the play by play...and what has happened to chrisfuckinglee...not a single penalty so far...but her comes crotch so leaf love is back
mclame 'gilly' Gilbert. No one ever called him that except ol' crotch, pud.K3X -->. crotch, lead by mclame mentions the lame Boyle to the lame leaf 'deal'. All part of their lame 'rebuild'.
Yep...he really is a bit. First time I have watched him.in ages...
...he really is shit...
I think 20 is timfuckingpeel
I have to admit that was interesting how Laine uses the toe, I always shot from the heel, now I know why I never made the show
moeman, the churro was disappointing in that it was billed as 'caramel filled'. Basically a cinnamon sugar cruller, which is fine. But there was about 1/2 teaspoon of caramel in one bite of it in total. So it was OK but I wouldn't go out of my way to get one.
The Tims here had CHurro bits (no caramel). Tasty morsels.
Birbig's latest on Netflix is very funny and smart.https://www.netflix.com/ca/watch/80133550
HANG ON BOYS
Romanuk is slipping as it is now 'bowl-you'.
Heh, gawling mentions a leaf. STFU SFU.
Leko LeKo LekOooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!
What a fucking gorgeous goal!
Wouldn't be too difficult to give Leko a few Calder votes.
Leko... and a great couple of passes
if Pirri does not keep his head up it will be a funeral pirri
That better be a penalty.
This is playoff hockey.
Forgot to mention (blame the Negroni);Here's how you know the SFU are leaf-only-leaf-always.They show a few seconds of ol' crotch showing mclame how the strings will be pulled (note mclame had no jacket on so as to better tie the strings to his blue leaf-tattooed balls).So their show and tell comes up and mclame leads ol' crotch with 'what trade did you like?’. mclame does one of his lame eye rolls and says ‘wait, we’ll get to you Habs fans’. Like he knows the clown show duo will find a way to rub hockey fans but come back with a little something, because them. What pure fucking douchebags.Back to the game…
Justice demands a sacrifice, send in judge Thor
I think TFS was well outside the crease so probably not
Pretty sure Gawley says Price threw a pretty good check on Nash on that play.
I`m sorry but justifying no penalty that TFS was outside his crease is just calling open-season on goalies. Fuck off. Apparently ref spoke to Nash.
Shaw taking a penalty for TFS wouldd be justified and right.
Maybe this would be a job for So too.
SSR had a CHat with CJv2. He might be thinking more on the ice.
We've seen a lot of broons games coached by CJv2. Games where his three forwards skated in unison across centre and into the opponent's zone. Seeing some of that now.
I'm going to give MB some credit. For a long time, this team wasn't fun to watch. Not sure how far they'll go in the playoffs, but the current squad has been playing so much better since he broke up with AF on Valentine's Day.
this is the best team we have had in modern history.
AF can buy lots of bonbons from the blue armchair in front of his TV to feel better.
Yep. CHanges can't happen overnight but so far the improvement is noticeable.... JJD just about cost us a goal by calling the D off early.
With that bit of So intelligence from Kapt Kirk, we could have called Ott CHeckov
Buchnivich I call Putin cause he is a scrary bitch
Leclair scoring on the babybluebandana'd hahahrudey never, ever, gets old. #kerryfrasershelmethair
some one tell them the Rags are not on the PP
gawling is getting excited.
Though the Roy trade sealed our fate for the last 20 years, the Leclair/Desjardin trade for Dr Recchi was the beginning of the end. I never understood why that happened.
he was not only a hockey player but a medical man as well
Yep, that was a weird trade.
Putin was a 3rd round pick
SSR getting end of season redemption
SSR, just after gawling said 'this is Rangers hockey'.
Put out Thor and let him make Ranger dust with his hammer
Prior to this game, the Habs have beat Hank 5 in a row. Gawley says wouldn't want to finish first in the Atlantic and end up playing the Rangers. That matchup is looking ok at the moment.
Come on now St. Pad, doncha know gawling knows 'Rangers hockey'?
If BBQ is Gledfidich, J&B is a poor mans premium single malt
Panel 'discussion' coming up.Note that Paul Maurice's genuinely beautiful Lainesque shot at Blabs has yet to be mentioned this evening. Word from up top to not hurt Blabs' feefees?
Actually they mentioned it and played the clip before the game
the Shanaban plan's motto, only excuses
Didn't see it.
That was bloody good - 20 minutes of hockey...in fact it has been a pretty good 40 minutes...
That milk commerical has the theme music from the Leftovers, the same guy who does the GaME OF tHRONES, also did West World and the Strain, thats talent
Winnipeg makes Edmonton look like Honolulu
c'mon..it's beautiful here :)
Nice but how often can you get lei'd out there? ; )
I've given up after the first 2 wives
nice Tarlick suit Friedman
Probably uses Herbalesence shampoo.
I used to use Herbalesence on both my hair and my steak
Ha ha ha, kypreosuck says Habs coulda/shoulda/woulda and 'will regret' not getting Burrows.They talk Paul Maurice (just rumours and lies) but completely avoid the elephant in the room shitting on their leaf rug. Cone of silence to protect Blabs.Wow, kypreosuck suggesting that TFS™ has maybe been faking when run into and now 'gets up fast'. Wow.
George McPhee the guy who traded Flip Forsberg for a bag of pucks, I would rather have Mcsplooge
Imagine if that team had Filip Forsberg too!
they call him Philp in Nashville,
The correalation between AF's termination and TFS expodation is just a co inky dink
Leko is a very well-spoken young man. Proud of him and his Calder-worthy season.
No chance with the leaf super duo of M&M.
Hoping Laine bags it but the odds are he will not get SFU votes.
29 In between tv talk, The Expanse ep 3. This show just keeps getting better, did the guy who invented the Epstien drive die, heh guess he was not that smart after all.
HANG ON BOYS
the Chocula like cone has been retired to the HHF
we have become the St Catharine Street bullies
