    Great job moe, nice to have a fresh thread. Should be an interesting final with Sid vs PK. My Sea Dogs are still alive and playing tonight against the team that spanked them in the round robin game, the Erie Otters. I believe Saint John will give them a better game tonight, they won't take the Otters lightly and play better defence.

    Go You Fucking Dogs Go!!

  4. Hey moeman, excellent SF! Listened to pere Subban on Finnnerty's Daybreak this a.m. great interview. I sure hope PK and his Preds take the Cup. It almost brings tears to my eyes thinking of the joy it would bring the kids at the Children's Hospital if he can bring them the Cup. This city will go ballistic.

  6. Great sexy friday it reminded me of Bottoms Up. I was at the original once as I am sure was Agent 29.

    Well well well we have a clash of ideology. A team built upon centers facing a team built out from the goalie. We will know soon which hand holds the most power.

  8. We cant be hiring guys like this with thin resumes just because they once played for Montreal.

    "Okay, so Larry Robinson is looking for a player development job. Here are the facts:
    – He is one of the all-time great Habs
    – He won the Norris twice and the Conn Symthe once
    – His career +/- is +730, including an incredible +120 in one season, 2nd only to Bobby Orr for the best single season +/-.
    – He has won a Stanley Cup as a Coach
    – He is in his third decade as an NHL coach
    – The Habs have a boat load of young defensemen on the Habs and in the system. Most of their best prospects are defensemen
    – He has coached some of the game’s great defensemen like Scott Stevens, Scott Neidermeyer, and most recently Brent Burns
    – The hiring of an all-time great player would be exciting for a lot of fans
    – spending money on player development is a way to gain a competitive advantage in a parity league

    Given the above and how much the Habs have riding on their dman prospects, isn’t offering Robinson a job with the Habs a bit of a no-brainer?"

    We are developing players like there is no tomorrow so why Change now?

    Thank you Sea Dogs for a great season. The teams from Ontario this year were just a bit better. See (some of) you guys in August for training camp. Going to be a rebuilding year but Joe Veleno from Kirkland will be a star and fun to watch.

  12. A great SF Moeman. NOAR! I too would love to see Robinson back working with the Habs...but can't see BBB being brave enough to bring One one with his talent into the organisation. I really would like the Preds to win it. PFK won't win the Connie unless he scores a shit load of goals but seeing him lift the Cup would be sweet.

  18. Todd defending BBB to the bitter end and calling those who attribute any modicum of the Preds acquiring PK as helping them succeed this year 'the same crowd that elected Donald Trump in the U.S., in other words' Wow, what a POS. You can be damned sure if the Habs were where the Preds are now that everyone would be saying BBB was a genius for making the trade.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Meh. Scott is just working any angle he can to try to stay relevant. So when a SFU shows up at your door and asks you to throw a negative quote about PK down, he would oblige, keeping his name in print as he works to get his movie deal done before everybody forgets about him.

  20. PC vs talent matrix winning the cup. For a team that has 24 cups this may be an answer. We do not need no stinking cabbages to win the cup. The management group think is strong, the performance on the ice is weak. Yet its historical.

  21. Scott says he made that comment about 2 1/2 years ago. Says he didn't know him then and likes him as a person but sticks by the 'garbage' comment, didn't like that he celly'd vs opponents when he scored even if the Habs were losing.

    I am PFKed out. I'm done talking about him and I quit reading articles about him. Nothing personal, I'm just tired of all the debating.

    The only time I cheer against Sid is when he plays the Habs. I will never wish ill of such a great player and fellow Maritimer. Even though I'm a New Brunswicker now, I'm a Nova Scotian by birth like Sid. He never got the protection Gretzky got.

    1. Yeah, Sid's family home is just a stone's throw from me. Well an Aaron Rodgers stone's throw anyway. Nate MacKinnon literally grew up just around the corner. OK, a couple of corners and a small hill. But across the street from my daughter's best friend. Says he was always a bit of a dick. But then again, I think Sid is an exceptional person and extremely well grounded. Mind you i thought that about Tiger once...

      Delete
    2. the Maritimer7:41 PM

      I don't know anything and have heard nothing about MacKinnon, unlike Ratface Marchand who is apparently a big feeling prick just like his father was. Ratface is one Bluenoser I have no trouble detesting even if he wasn't a shit-stained broon. Sid is a well grounded humble person. Tiger? He was always an entitled punk. His fall from grace is well earned. He thought he could swing his dick anywhere and get away with it. Wrong. I hope he gets jail time.

    3. Strangely enough when he was flinging his bits and pieces here and there he was on his game. Getting caught by his wife started the collapse. He!s never recovered.

    4. Entitled punk I disagree with. He was on the Tonight show at 5 or 6 yrs old putting. He was daddy's puppet, not much of a childhood I'm sure. Actually after daddy dearest passed also coincided with his descent.

    5. I don't even recognize Ratface as being from this area. If I see him driving his 'Lambo' around Halifax i'll be sure to give him the double-middle salute on behalf of all FHF's. And I think Nate is actually OK, just tough being compared to Sid.

    6. the Maritimer7:45 AM

      I don't deny Tiger's skills. I never liked his attitude on the golf course, cursing and swearing after every bad shot, throwing clubs, et al. He hated doing interviews especially if he lost. His father may be the root of his problems but that's no excuse for rude behaviour.

      Interesting analogy of his decline due to his (lack of?) sexual activities. Testosterone overload? (Insert weird emoji here).

  28. So Pens go up 3-0 then get no shots on goal in the 2nd period but still win 5-3. This is going to be an interesting series...maybe...

    ReplyDelete
  29. The score was not indicative of the game.

    Mike Sullivan: "None of us in the dressing room are fooled by the score tonight."

    "I thought our guys played well. From start to finish, they played well. … We hate the score. We hate the result, but we move forward." -- Laviolette

    Preds dominated the Pens who didn't even have a shot on goal for 37 minutes, the first team to hold an opponent to 0 shots in a period in a Stanley Cup Final since NHL began tracking SOG in 1957-58.

    Preds came out flying PK opened the scoring but they challenged for offside and overturned the goal. I don't know what's offside anymore. Crosby should have gotten a penalty immediately prior to the Pens scoring a goal but no call, he got away with interference on Ekholm behind the net.

    The Pens scored a goal during I think the last 20secs of a 5 on 3 PP.
    Rinne stopped a puck with his stick that then went into Elkholm's knee and right into his own net. Preds came back from being down 3-0 and tied the game.

    Not a good night for Rinne either allowing 3 goals in the 1st on something like 7 or 8 shots, though 1 goal being the end of a 5 on 3 PP.

  32. The Tragically Hip says it’s partnering with a medicinal marijuana producer to contribute “creatively to their efforts.”

    The iconic Canadian rock band says it’s teaming up with the company Newstrike, which it calls “a perfect fit” for the band.

    In a statement on social media, the group calls the federal government’s marijuana legalization plans “common-sense-policy” and says it likes Newstrike because “they’ve hired pre-eminent scientists and growers, developed large, well-structured sites and have the wherewithal and expertise to take this on.”

    It didn’t take long for fans to start dreaming up names for a Hip-related marijuana product.

    Some suggested “Tragically Hemp,” “Chronically Hip” or “Tragically High.”

    Others used song titles as inspiration, suggesting “Budcaygeon,” “Weed Kings” and “Twist My Joint.”

Yes, let's set child-molesting murderers free amongst our children. Yes, her kids have a right to live THEIR lives, but she deserves to be scrutinized and shunned by society. If it wasn't for her lawyer hiding those tapes, she wouldn't have cut a deal and would still be in prison. WTF is wrong with people?

    2. What also burns me is, as a parent and if my child was at that school, I am outraged that the school decided that their decision to expose my child to a child killer overrode MY right to choose not to and my ability to do all in my power I can to keep MY child safe. One parent at the school said her kids were there and she had no idea that Holmolka was, some who knew say they spoke to the school and they did nothing.

      Delete
    3. Thing is,... if this woman expects to mingle with society and such, she owes all to know exactly who she is. And the school has a duty to inform the other parents. Her kids though. Tough for them no matter what.

      Delete
    4. I will take this debate slightly further. That piece of shit Homolka should have any kids she had taken away at birth. She gave up all her rights to privacy and to be around any child when she did what she did. Yes she cut a deal but that should never override whether she is a fit parent - which she certainly is not. Not now - not ever!

      Shea Weber is good but not a superstar like Ovie or JT. Other than Price, Montreal has nothing to offer for players of that stature. Montreal fans tend to over value or rate Habs players immensely. gCHuk or N8 or whoever will get you squat. Pacioretty has some value but it would take a huge package with him to get what the Habs need. That's why I've lowered my expectations so much. The only way to get where they need to be is the scorched earth method but nobody wants to go that route. I expect mediocrity to rule for years to come.

  46. So I went and started watching last night just as the third period got underway. What I saw was our PK on the bench every time the Pens scored, and the Preds playing piss-porous team D in front of a guy who was nowhere near the planet the usual Rinne is on. Difficult days ahead for the Preds. The Pens really look like they want to be back-to-back winners bad. I hope the Habs get PK back somehow, someway, someday. He is the Preds' true leader on the ice - going right in Crosby's and Malkin's faces and giving no quarter whatsoever. No question. Fisher looked helpless and out of his depth out there. Josi looked like a lost puppy who tried to jump on a stair and misjudged it badly.

    1. 'But the point is, Subban stood up for a teammate and made a little statement in the process. That he’s not going to take it, that he’s not just happy to be here. Then he was defiant afterward about the Predators’ chances of turning this thing.

      Subban overkill was guaranteed – with a capital “G” -- in the Cup Final. Predators beat writer Adam Vingan and I resolved to do anything different while the rest of the media throng churned out a thousand pre-series Subban pieces and followed him around as he asked goofy questions of his teammates.

      There’s no doubt in my mind that trading Shea Weber for Subban was a good move. I also have little doubt the Predators could be here right now with Weber. Subban is one of many good players on this team. But this week we’re seeing him become something more.'
