London Grammar Eh! Never heard them before very sexy!
Hookers & Blow WhiCH answers the question, is Vegas more stripperific than Montreal?
McPhee was heard saying 'See Marc, a #1 C not so hard to find, I got one and didn't have to sell the farm I don't even have yet.'
Bozo the GM is too busy buying a new wardrobe to worry about such matters.
Another great SF moeman.Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone.
Hey moe! Hope you are OK, lot of water in your area?
Hey.I'm OK but neighbours and others not so much.I live approx. ½ a Km from the river, up hill.Lots of road closures and the water is at it's highest in 25+ years.I've been in my digs since 1990.Drove to a store near the NW side and the river was at road level on a busy street.3+ days of rain will not help.
"P.K. is a very dynamic player," Housley said. "I don't think people give him enough credit for how well he plays in the defensive zone. He's a strong player down low, he can protect the puck and he uses his offensive instincts differently than Matthias or Roman or Ryan."His escapability is his strength, being able to spin off guys. But it just took some time for them to jell."That process is now complete, with Subban and Ekholm handling the bulk of the ****difficult defensive assignments against the Blues and Josi and Ellis making the bigger offensive contributions.**** But those roles can flip at any moment, and likely will in Game 5 because the Blues will have the final change.But the Predators don't really care because they don't have one true top pair. They have two."I just thought [Ekholm] and P.K. have done a terrific job ***defending on better players**** and we could get Roman and [Ellis] more involved offensively because I thought they were ****defending more,"**** Housley said. "But you're not going to get the matchups you want, so you're going to have to count and trust the players you put out there."https://www.nhl.com/news/coach-phil-housley-shaped-nashville-predators-defense/c-289275342
I said at the time of the trade this would eventually be the best thing for PK because he was never going to be given any credit wearing the CH, especially with the current regime in charge.
New Blondie and new Diana Krall albums out.Played the Pollinator album from Blondie. Very good after one listen.
Moeman you are an awesome dude! Happy cinco de mayo and apologies for being silent on Star Wars Day. GreaT great great Sent Friday! Nice ones all 'round! As for the whole PK stuff...i do hope the Preds win it all. Then I want PK to come to MontreL with the Cup and do what he does best. Share it with the kids he loves. Share it with the fans. He told us he would bring a cup to the city. Not his fault it won't be a Habs one ... then he needs to go visit Geoff Molson...ask him how that 5 year plan he's paying for has worked out...then go spending more time with the kids in his hospital. FUCK YOU BBB!
Auto correct sucks!...great great great sexy Friday...Then I want PK to come to Montreal...
NOAR! doesn't get autocorrected!!! (cuz of da CAPS!)
Diana's new album 'Turn up the quiet' is a collection of jazz hits.

Opening night for the President's Cup Finals at Harbour Station in Saint John, NB. The Saint John Sea Dogs vs the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada. Game 2 tomorrow night will be on the main snot network if anyone is interested. A historical tidbit: the coach of the Armada is Joel Bouchard, who played for the Saint John Flames of the AHL back in the 90's. Anyway, this is fun hockey to watch if you are interested. I like to shamelessly promote my hometown as well.
My Saint John Sea Dogs prevailed 6-3 last night. Apparently it was broadcast by TVA Sports, I watched it on the local Rogers channel and the local guys were talking about how all the TV timeouts were slowing the pace of the game down. No matter. Sportsnet 360 is carrying tonight's game but I think I'll head down to the rink tonight to catch this one. Rumour has it that the Armada coach, Joel Bouchard, who is heavily involved in Hockey Canada, will be the coach of the Laval Rocket next season. I hope it's true so that the Habs young players can continue to be de-Therrienized. Bouchard likes to unleash the hounds and play some offence, maybe he can replace Clod after a couple more years of defence-first trap hockey. First things first, they need to find a couple of players who actually know how to score goals.
He used to be the on ice guy for RDS before Marc Denis, he left to be GM of the Armada.
Yes, I was going to mention that he worked for RDS as an analyst. I think he could be a fresh, young mind in the Habs organization.I should also mention that recently signed Habs prospect Defenceman Simon Bourque plays for the Sea Dogs, a mercenary picked up from Rimouski at the trade window at Christmas. Could be a future Hab from what I've seen, he will be in Laval for sure next year.
I wouldn't mind seeing him coach the Rockets, Lefebvre needs to go but wouldn't the Habs make him play the same 'system' ?
I have been wondering about something recently. We all complain that's BBB can't get a forward case that's hard and the M talks about de-therrienising the rockets...but BBB was a d man for 20 years in the nhl...can anyone tell me if he ever won a thing? Any cups? I honestly don't know and in the immortal words of HF29 "I couldn't be bothered to look it up" - so just maybe we need to de-bbb the rockets before the Habs can be contenders again...
K3X I'm pretty sure BBB never won anything other than best dressed GM in 2014. But I also refuse to look it up. I don't even know which teams he played for. Presumably the Hawks. I'm thinking the original Jets? No idea. I do know he played over 1000 games, just because I remember hearing that earlier this year.
Bargain Bin never won the Cup to my knowledge as a player but was an executive with the BlackHawks when they won once or twice.I've lost faith in the guy. He collects defencemen and 5th liners like pokemon cards. In 5 years I've seen no improvement in the Canadiens. He admits there is nobody in the organization that can help with the scoring woes, yet continues to "build" through the draft, well that may be a lie as well since he trades away draft picks to acquire "character" players or players who have won previously with much more talented teammates but turn out to be duds when they get to Montreal. He thinks he has a contender with Carey Price in net but that's just smoke and mirrors. The Habs are not a playoff team. They get shut down very easily when it gets serious.Bergevin says it's hard to trade, hard to draft and hard to score goals. I wish he would get out of the way and let someone who is capable of solving those problems take over.Finally, what GM or coach in his right mind takes one of his truly talented players, drafted 3rd overall, and puts him on the wing on the 4th line? Seriously? I don't care how many mistakes he makes defensively you are just neutering yourself out of spite. Philip Danault couldn't carry Galchenyuk's jock strap skill-wise. If you are going to lose, go out at least trying to score a goal or two. Pacioretty let his teammates down by disappearing but Galchenyuk wasn't even given a chance to fail. If I can quote moe, "It's going to get worse before it gets better."
I like being quoted!DGMB played for quite a few teams but no major awards/championships.
We have two winners KidA and Leko. gCHuck is just a hot mess. So if its one failure to develop, okay but everyplayer thats a systematic disaster.WE could not land the Shipwreck? We have 3 3rd liners at center and the best center in the KHL signs for two years at $4.5. Either CHe said to him dont bother, or Che said to BBB dont bother.
Brutal non-goalie interference call last night to give Buttman's ducks a lead in the series. Let's face it, ever since that goal the Rangers scored earlier in the year, where Price was dragged halfway to Gatineau and the goal stood, there is no point in even hoping for a call to go your way if you're on this side of the border.
Hey! I saw what you did there!Also, I agree 100%.
Don't forget the Sea Dogs are on Sportsnet 360 at 6:00p EST tonight. Look for me in the crowd, I'll wave!!
A 4-0 win and a 2-0 series lead. Go Dogs Go!!
Thanks man! The joint was rockin' last night, I would put Harbour Station up against any other venue in the CHL. It has great sight lines from any seat and the concessions are reasonable. I know one thing, they sold a ton of beer last night. The folks at Moosehead Brewery are happy this morning!
Anybody a fan of Netflix's Sense8? Must see tv if you're into writhing orgies.Seriously, excellently written tv that tackles tonnes of social issues and has an amazing soundtrack and terrific acting. And yes, there also happens to be the odd T&A and a bit of full frontal here or there...
On the wish list. Thx for the update!
its been on my Prime Wire Fave list for some time, it and black mirror yet to watch
Phew!BREAKING: French prime minister says Emmanuel Macron has won the French presidential election.
evil incarnate wins over the devil, its been that kind of leadership worldwide (except Canada)
Seems like Wash has found a playoff number one center, some Lego CHaracter
Marc Bergevin and Trevor Timmins have no idea what a number one center looks like. To them they are enigmas wrapped in mystery hidden in puzzles.Good ol' Bergy the D-man spends millions and millions on peers like Weber, Markov and Petry to defend but forgets you need someone who is allowed into the offensive zone. Then you have the Invisible Man who is playing for chump change waiting for his UFA day to arrive so he can sign with his boyhood faves the Rangers.
Nicely done Preds!
Yep, congrats to PK for going to the Conference Finals. Irony indeed.
I've been bashing Bargain Bin a lot lately, so I'm going to see if I can help him out instead. OK, so Montreal needs a number one center and has for a long, long time. BB says you can't trade for one since other teams will take advantage of you. I get that. You can't draft one when you are picking in the 20's, fair enough I guess. There is a 3rd option if one has the balls to do it. Offer sheets. I read somewhere else today there are several number one centers who are RFAs this summer, Leon Draisaitl from Edm and Ryan Johansen in Nashville. I don't know if Jonathan Drouin is a center but he's an RFA as well. So sign one or threaten to, like Burke did with Kessel. My preference would be Johansen but, whatever. So what if it costs you three draft picks, they are no good to you anyway and you're not developing the ones you have so why not? Get rid of some of your crap players to create cap space. C'mon Bergy, stop trying to be a nice guy and play hardball. Money is no object to the 2nd richest team in the league. Do it or you're out of a job anyway.You're welcome.
excellent thinking, if the NHL was a sports league instead of an ATM for Americans it would happen
Congratulations to the Preds for making history in going to their first ever conference final! Keep on dancing all the way PFK!
Meanwhile, Todd tries to discount any contributions by PK because he didn't have his best game yesterday and continues to beat the drum for the trade. Let's ignore that if PK had a 3pt game vs Rangers like he did for the Preds that the Habs may have moved on instead of going golfing.
I watched the last 7 or 8 minutes of that game and noticed Laviolette had PK out in the last minute defending a 1 goal lead. Good on both of them.
He had the most TOI for both teams yesterday.
They are keeping people off the bridges today.Did some sand bagging yesterday and cooking some turkeys at the community centre later this aft.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6FI7yAvMCw
Major arteries and part of the HWY into Ottawa now commandeered by the Canadian military.
Hats off to you moe, hope for all to be safe. The army is here too.
are you sure Trump has not invaded:) All part of the new normal, a months rain in three days, who aside form Al Gore could have predicted that. A Hard Rain is going to fall.
This is why Todd beats that Habs drum on the trade, he feels just like they do about PK. Gets called out for his tweet then sends the article in the Gazette.'Fans think it's cute when P.K. grabs a tape recorder to interview a teammate. But really, it's P.K. needing to be the centre of attention.'
I read the article. Todd is full of shit on this one. Seems like he's trying to defend Habs management and Bergevin in particular. The Habs are no farther ahead with the Trade and will increasingly get burned over time. In 5 years with Bergevin at the helm they have accomplished... nothing. I guess he needs 5 more years to get something done. Good luck.Hats off to moe for contributing to his community. We got lucky in southwestern New Brunswick and didn't get the amounts of rain predicted. Only a few minor road closures. Stay safe mes amies.
The PFK for BBQ trade is not yet fully accounted for. Smoke and Smoke and more smoke forced PFK to leave the Stanley Tent. When TFS comes out and nails the lid on his coffin you know, it was something more than something.Hopefully like many bad boys they clean up in a new city, and PFK seems to have done this well, as die CHelios, Roy and a list to long to mention.Had we had Phil Housley as D man coach would things be differant even if he could not speak French. Ocams razer has cut the playoff beard from the club for decades and the conclusion is inescapable. The management does not yield. We have so many pegs and we will take all the round players, square ones we will have to sand down. So we get a team that is full of sand and grit but lacking in performance. Its like the engine of a BMW, take away all the frictional loss and its a FORD. Fix or Repair Daily.I sure hope DBMB can pull of something in the offseason, but I am really bugged that the Shipwreck did not wash up on our shore, considering we dont even have a beach.
My heart is out to all the flood victims. This has the potential to be the greatest natural disaster in Canadian History. IMHO it was not a natural disaster, that is the old incompetence vs political theater co out. We have 100 year floods ever two weeks people. People of Montreal still flush thier poop straight to the sea in 2017. WaKE UP zOMBIES.i HAD a home that I lost. My basement flooded 2 inches and it made my bride cry. So the tramu of what is happening now makes me cry in fury that the people of this land can not plan.
Ontario's been pumping poop for years, difference is they kept it hush, hush while Montreal's Mayor announced to the public ahead of the dump.
juce we actually process our poop to some degree. I just wonder about the environmental harm of shitting constantly into the gaspe bay.
Down here in the Maritimes there is no longer any poop going out to sea. St. John's, Halifax and Saint John treat everything. Hey! We have to eat those fish!
6 hours of filling sand bags and loading up palettes with 1200 neighbours.At the end of the day I was interviewed by Evan Solomon on CFRA Ottawa;https://www.facebook.com/580CFRA/
Almost n o blinking!
Congrats Genie!MADRID — Motivated more than usual, Eugenie Bouchard used her game to send a message to Maria Sharapova by defeating the Russian 7-5, 2-6, 6-4 in a thrilling second-round match at the Madrid Open on Monday.
R.I.P. David Molson
RIP but was he not responsible for having a bowling alley manager run the Habs?
The league is like dumb and dumber, stupid is as stupid does. Sid doesn't get pulled after crashing head first into the boards just 4 days after his coach said he had a concussion?"The protocol has been interpreted literally to mandate a removal. 'Ice' as compared to 'boards' is in there for a reason. It's the result of a study on our actual experiences over a number of years. 'Ice' has been found to be a predictor of concussions - 'boards' has not been."Yeah right, and Patches was almost killed by a stancion too.
stay dry everyone, based upon my experience with the man. My house floods, the insurance company says "act of god" oh and by the way your premium just went up to cover flood insurance claims. I had a similar situation during the famous Oct surprise Ice storm when a tree fell on my house. Oh act of God sorry, maybe you dont prey enough.I figured out what BBB is doing. He is driving down the price for N8 and gCHuck. He wants to sign them long term under $5 mil. Do not play mubly peg with this man you will lose your leg. We did not get Shipwreck because he is going to offer sheet Dristial. The owner of the Oilers is a greasy C. So its okay to attack him with offer sheets. BTW I am hoping for a Wash VS Oilers final. Watching the first line center of Wash go head to head with McJesus. Lego joins the list of worst trades ever for a team that has no centers, WTF where they thinking
Calgary took a hail mary flyer on this kid in the first round and its paid off.Mark Jankowski is a player I’ve been following since I saw him at Stanstead College. In grade 10 and 11 he grew 6 inches and went from a talented 5’10 centreman, to a 6’4 NHL prospect. Drafted 1st round by Calgary’s previous management team, the 22 year old has just finished a terrific first season playing in the AHL, leading his team in points.
our first round draft picks are picking up strippers successfully. Not that I have ever tried or even been to a strip joint, but picking up a stripper is a mans game.
everhting in the NHL is on the bubble. Its elite fidelity playing on a turntable. I you hit a scratCHit may sound terrible. But maybe it was not the bands fault, just your care and handling.
I dont believe in fairy talesI believe in best practiceswho will be our Champion?
Rags or Turds. It's like choosing between gonorrhea or syphilis. In the end, I'll have to take the Canadian team even though i picked the Rags in 6 in my pool. Still get points for the number of games regardless. Last minute of play. Turds hanging on like a true Cling-on. One thing I noticed different between the 2 series. Nash looked like a Conn Smythe candidate against the Habs and has been pretty much invisible against the Sens. Game over. Congrats to the Sens.Now go Oil. BTW I picked the Oil and Pens in 7 and the Preds in 5.
Ticker on tva last night read that AF is one of two finalists to coach FLA.
If the aim in FLA is to win more than they lose, I can see AF in FLA. If they ever want to win anything, then Bwahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahaha!
The other guy Jim Montgomery who coaches at University of Denver already had his 2nd interview.
thats a fantastic tanking strategy
Congrats to Ottawa and Guy Boucher for advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals.My Sea Dogs are now 1 win away from claiming their 4th Presidents Cup in their 12th year of existence and playing in their 3rd Memorial Cup tournament. I can count on this team being good every 5 years or so, unlike the Habs who are now thinking in quarter century terms.
Stars acquire goaltender Ben Bishop from the Kings in exchange for Montreal's fourth round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft.
That was the pick used to get J&B.
Go Oilers. Go Pens.
Congrats Greens, now its to bad we did not have a Federal solution to first past the post.https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2017/05/10/greens-hold-balance-of-power-in-stunning-bc-election.html
Apparently interviews are underway for Lefebvre's replacement. Think BBB finally sees that coaching matters? Apparently the Habs have the worst record of drafting and developing since BBB took over.
Translated from an article in La PresseA glance at the statistics of the match surely did not comfort the president of the CH. PK Subban was the most used player of both teams, being on the ice for almost half (27 min 19 s) of this key encounter.Since the beginning of the series, Subban's solid, effective and inspired game has been unanimous. By getting his services, David Poile, the CEO of the Predators, called 76 a "modern defender," tailored to the speed of today's NHL. Geoff Molson must now understand the meaning of this.Subban's successes break a tenacious myth that he is an unreliable player, too often willing to take crazy risks in the hope of shining in front of the fans.and Leaving Montreal is unfortunately the best thing that has happened to Subban. Impossible to offer good performances without the full support of his bosses. Yet if one can draw a conclusion from the last few weeks, it is because Subban is a "manageable" player if the management knows how to deal with his strong personality. http://plus.lapresse.ca/screens/580e514c-2b52-4ee0-ab9c-e460dc4f9e85%7C_0.html
Exactly what I thought of the trade, but put much more eloquently even through translation. It will probably never stop hurting for CH fans of PK like myself, even if the Habs miraculously land #25 in the next few years. I've stopped trying to get into the foxhole minds to figure out how the decision was made to trade the most entertaining player in the game. Go PK Go!
I was going to comment that someone thought that about the trade but I couldn't remember who. Sorry for forgetting and sorry that you're right.
PK has been put into a position to succeed, but also his failure in Montreal surely has made him more open in input. Housley as a coach compared to JJ, no comparison. If we had hired Frankinstien, kept PFK and Lego, we would still be in the playoffs. Franky takes square pegs and makes a game plan highlighing their skills. Both MT an CV2 take square pegs and ask them to be round. If you can make the Princess Plyon a playoff star, you are coach of the year.
Speaking of PK, he was fined for embellishment. Bogus.
Gotta fine PK after getting a stick in the face and then hit in the head but Bonino was quite theatrical over a stick that never touched his face at all and the league says well, I guess he might have had a his shoulder pad move up. BS NHL.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gdUg9tsyxg
Its the white way. Sickening but Collie got his jollies, again.
I've been all bitter and twisted since the Habs folded like a cheap tent. I've been ignoring hockey but I I may watch the Pens/Caps tonight, rooting for the Pens of course. GYFPG!!!!!
Exactly!Except Im rooting for the Caps
C'mon! At least check out the Sea Dogs game on SportsNet 360!! Pretty please?!?
I am also rooting and tootin for the caps, after all the Russian saved America from Hillary.Leaving a Broken Arrow in CHarge, if we are all going to die, at least its going to be entertaining.
Hi kids! Just stopped in to say hi kids!
Salut mon CHum.
BCS S3E4 was very lawyerly, brother v. brother.
BCS is so subtle its divine.
Fearless Prediction, the Preds will not protect PFK.
I've been reading lots of articles/comments at various locations on the internet regarding what Bergevin should/could do. That stuff used to keep me entertained after the Habs bombed out of the PO's, however I find myself strangely disinterested this year. I don't really care who they pick at #24 or even if they pick at all. I don't trust Bergevin to make a trade to help his woe begotten team. Like Moey, I've distanced myself from NHL hockey, except for a very few minutes of the last Predators game. Even the World Championships haven't caught my attention yet. The Sea Dogs and the Memorial Cup are all I have left. Soon it will be all golf for me since MLB can go fuck themselves. Nah, I'm not bitter. Not much.
Nice rant bro.Similarly not into the game but hope Sid wins it all again v. Oilers. Have zero interest in WHC and no sn360 in my 'package'.
And the Habs can still fuck off.
I'm torn between Caps and Pens. On the one hand, I have 4 Caps in my hockey pool. On the other, I picked the Pens in 7 in another pool. On the third hand, I don't want another fucking Sid parade to deal with this summer. So, go Caps! Trailing 1-0 just as I finish typing this.Also, I've tuned into the M's Seadogs here and there. They look quite unbeatable.
Putin scores 7 goals today at a Russian "fun" game. Bergevin should look at signing this guy.
Yeah! Oh what a big surprise. NOT.
Wow, having Chocula behind the bench is how you lock down a 2-0 lead in the third. No room whatsoever for the Caps in the final frame. Can't imagine the Sens beating this team, but then I didn't think they were going to beat the broons or rags so what do I know.
Now, Go Oilers! Not that I'm staying up for that one.
That's it. Saint John sweeps the finals 4-0. They only lost two games to Chicoutimi all playoffs one in double OT. Powerhouse team Memorial Cup bound. Sweet!
Thomas Chabot wins the MVP trophy... the Guy LaFleur trophy. Cool!!
Habs prospect Simon Bourque scored a nice goal tonight, hopefully when he gets to Laval, Lefebvre will be long gone so Bourque won't get "therrienized".
So it's Pens v Turds and Preds v. Ducks...personally I would love to see a Pens Preds final but methinks the Ducks will get 'er done in 6. Pens in 6 as well
we pick 25th. all good centers are gone, we will likely take project pure wool lw comatose.
Or another 6 ft. Dman...because ytou never can have too many defencemen. Besides, getting a center is hard...very hard.
There could be a Strome brother available, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the Yotes take him at 23. The Habs will take 'the best player available', which in their minds will be skinny defenseman Pierre-Olivier Joseph from the Charlottetown Islanders.
I wish they could get his brother Mathieu from Tampa. Guy's got some serious skillz. It would be nice for another Sea Dog to become a Hab since N8 will be heading out the fucking door shortly.
