WOW! Wonderful indeed! Do NOT ask me to choose. Lynda Carter still looks great at 65. I'll take an Amazon sandwich please. This movie is definitely on my must see list. It would really help everybody move on from PK if WW would lasso BBB and finally get the truth about the trade.Saw the pic of Robinson and got excited. I haven't been following the sports news lately and thought maybe there was a hiring I missed! Nope. Just a great pic of a great man. NOAR moeman!Happy Wonderfully Sexy Friday.
Outstanding SF. Lynda Carter was drop dead gorgeous. Gal Gadot is cute in an Amazon way.
I remember watching the Wonder Woman series on tv back in the day.
Nilan likes to get the BBB supporters. Yesterday Burke, now he's got Tremblay singing BBB's praises. This morning Marinaro had Wilde to get his opinion and he also defended him citing the teams record when he took over and their record since then saying it was among the top in the league though they still need a centre.
So what does it tell us that gCHyuk is willing to take a 1-yr deal?http://www.habseyesontheprize.com/analysis/2017/6/2/15726316/alex-galchenyuk-contract-extension-cost-rfa-comparables-marc-bergevin-tarasenko-forsberg-kadri
I don't necessarily want Bargain Bin fired. If he fails to address the center issue and runs gChuk out of town then fuck him.
Great SF Moeman.NOAR. I want Larry back!
Wonderful SF we now have a new Ginger of Maryanne question. I go with new wonder.I wonder if Trump has finaly jumped the shark with his climate denail
After his performance in Bruxelles, I call him President Bean.
Another bridge incident in London tonight. I work in the area. Glad I am home.
WTF is wrong with these people???Glad you're home and safe, K3X.
the problem with normal is it always gets worse = Bruce Cockburnget some Kevlar underwear Kmax
Thanks...going to work from home Monday to avoid the area. no sense pushing my luck
I watched the first and secondNashville fans are great and annoying as hell. Would love to be either in the rink or outside.Nashville sweaters are worse in the stands than on the ice. I found watching the game claustrophobic.Hockey intense but all 3rd lines.Nashville D the big four.Syd and Malkian not dangerousPreds dominatedPFK played big
Watching Milos at the French Open. He doesn't make it easy on himself with about 3000 unforced errors. Seems to be the same story every time i see him play. The camera keeps focusing on 3 beauties in the stands right behind where Milos sits for his breaks. Not sure if one or all of them are his girl. He's good either way.Word out of Mtl seems to be that N8 is likely to be left off the protected list, so he'll probably end up in Vegas.
Dropping N8 is on par with developing DDD as first line center.
After Bozo the GM got rid of whipping boys Lego and PFK he had to find some new ones to blame for his failures. Enter N8 and gCHuk. Therefore, exit, stage left N8 and gCHuk. I'll bet they both love Vegas. Maybe they should both watch "Showgirls" before they get there...
Flipped over to check out the FTWD marathon only to realize I have not watched the 2nd half of the last season. In fact I didn't know there was one. I was so confused - how the hell did they get to this hotel? Steve you're a FTWD fan right? Should I watch that 2nd half or just skip right to the new season?
Watch it, FTWD is a period zombie.I am just hoping the Leftovers does not become Lost 2.0.
WAtched the first episode of the 2nd half of the 2nd season last night. Nick's journey. That was a real baseball bat bashing, piss drinking, dog eating episode!
FTWD has moved up and TWD has moved down and now they are both just Zombie soap. What is interesting about the FTWD is how the characters are not all stoic and heroic like TWD but actually off the wall like Nick and his dear departed step brother.Have not watched Leftovers yet, but the reviews say LOST 2.0 done by the Beatles.House of Cards is IMHO spot on again, which likely means there will be no season 6.We may have some interesting CHoices at number 25, the rags pick at 21? We can go with two stratagies, pick the best pure wool Comatos, or take our second choice at 25, our first choice at 25 seems to be always wrong.
Thor signed one year, $675,000
Getting players is hard...understanding signings is even harder sometimes...but hey, according to Brian Wilde BBB is the 3rd best GM in the world so who the fuck am I to argue...
CHeap. Do they protect him?
I really liked Thor's game, thats why he played 10min in the playoffs WTF. What is it with coaches and players like DDD, Mexicant, and HRH. Useless but play when players that at least show some mojo watch from the press box.Watching Yannick Weber shutdown Cindy also busts my balls.It burns my buns when all the unsigned pure wool become clutCH players in the playoffs.
Not watching much if any of the SCF. snet is horrible.What year of their $5.2BUS deal are they in? Can't believe the NHL is happy with the amateur level and the sycophantic insiders that lives there. What a bunch of arrogant, self-admiring fools. Why aren't they broadcasting in 4K? Oh, only at there ACC is it available. Pure, fucking schlock.
what is sCHocking is that the "free streams" were bullshit quality. The same stream on Kodi golden. Am I just incredibly naive or been recurted by piraates.
HofCS5 was very good. Not great but worth the watch. I'd like it if they did some add-on episodes to track the dumpster fire in Washington.Fargo S3 is really good, as is BCS S3.
After 3 eps of HofC I was ready for a series finale. However when they introduced foreign skullduggery and the deep state to the equation, there is so much more to explore.Particularly how the plumbing was intricately constructed made it one of the best tactical seasons yet. Leftovers not as lousy as lost but still missing a great conclusion. I liked the ying and yang balance but why, who how still a mystery. Love is real, faith is an illusion.
Basu:So before heading home to Winnipeg, Nolan Patrick is visiting with the Devils, Flyers and...Habs. One of these things is not like the others
So we are trading up for the number two pick ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
One thing Bozo the GM is good at is accumulating dep. I'll bet his AHL players aren't too enamored of all his dumpster diving. He's pretty much written them all off.
According to the toronto sports network: The Wayne Gretzky-led 1984-85 Edmonton Oilers have been chosen by fans as the greatest NHL team of all time, the league announced Monday.I call fucking bullshit on that. 1976-77 Habs greatest team of all time bar none. Go fuck yourself leafools.
in the future we will see them play each other.
They'll do and say anything to slag the Habs.
No, no that Habs team is obviously a solid 3rd best of all time behind the 91-92 Pens...
Preds win the cup in six
That's what I picked in my (wife's) pool.
You just have to wonder? Why does DGMB sign a thousand fourth liners before he give some of our daft picks a CHance?
See my post above. Bozo thinks all his AHL guys are crap.On another note, saw Wonder Woman last night, I liked the story line and the battle scenes were excellent, reminiscent of "300". The ending was a little iffy but I enjoyed it overall.
I am in wonder of wonder women
Saw a segment on the news last night about Scott Oak and his wife losing their son who OD'd on heroine. Talked about his detox and rehabs (when he would go, usually thought just detox would do) the costs etc... and now along with their other son, who puts on magic shows, are raising money for a rehab centre in Winnipeg where addicts can go even if they can't pay. While like moeman, I don't like his hockey coverage, I really feel for their them. No one should lose a child and at least they can use their 'fame' for something worthwhile.
Darcy Oak is a great magician. Wonder if he could make his father disappear? Sorry, obligatory anti-thickasanoak joke.Seriously, I agree juce - I can't imagine as a parent losing one of my girls, and if they're able to use their quasi-celebrity status to help improve the lives of others, then that indeed is a great thing.
Good one, Saint Paddy. Yeah, he's really good, here he is on Britain's Got Talent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gO_KyTtJg10
I love drugs but I have never touched anything addictive except for tabak and alcool. Maybe if we had a real world where the truth was told people would not die in a world were pot and herion are the same evil.The fact is the kids today know the parents fucked their world.
Well said juce.
Google translated-Mr. Bronfman is very tough on Carter. He calls his pay demand of the early 1980s "off-putting". In his mind, the number 8 did not shine under pressure. He adds that "his status as a star" made him "an egocentric player".http://plus.lapresse.ca/screens/d99b5190-71d8-4807-8053-22afb7c75b20%7C_0.html
Disclosure, the article contains a PF comparison.
I find the Comey's testimony fascinating. Comey, to me anyway, comes across as honest and not a nut they're gonna crack.
The rest of the world is standing back and watching this tragicomedy unfold in the USA. What a mess. Sure am glad I live where I do. I'm not sure I even want to visit there anymore.
FIve to zero Pens at the half. We won the trade again:)
24 years ago today the Habs won their last Stanley Cup. A year and a half later, Ron Corey, Reggie Houle and Mario Tremblay traded away Saint Patrick and the Habs never recovered. A succession of management teams have failed to make the team contenders again. Sad days for Habs fans.@Saint Paddy, I shot 85 and 83 my last 2 rounds. It's putting that saves you strokes and I was draining them like crazy the last two days.
Sid pushing PK's head into the ice at least 6 times lying on top of him while Brad Meier just watches until PK gets up THEN he blows the whistle and gives them each 2 for holding? With all his concussions Crosby knows exactly what could happen there. If you watch the replay you even see that Crosby is also holding the butt of his stick in the same hand he's shoving PK's head into the ice with. Damn sure if PK was doing that to Crosby he'd be suspended. Of course Milbury says PK had it coming.Crosby later tosses a water bottle on the ice during the play and not even a penalty. He later claims oops, it was an accident, musta slipped from my hand? 'Letting them play' is one thing but this was not letting them play, it was letting Crosby do as he pleases while throwing a temper tantrums.
"I was trying to get out of there. He had lost his stick, he (was) just trying to hold me down. I don't know what he was trying to do with my ankle."Crosby was asked if that's why he resorted to hitting Subban's head several times."Yeah," he replied. "I was in some kind of lock he had going on there. I don't know what it was."
Colon's boy hired as asst player development coach. Told Colombus, I'm a good hire, we'll have the refs on our side.
R.I.P. Rest easy Caped Crusader...
So sad...RIP Adam West. You were the best
So one week on from the terror attacks on London Bridge I have taken my family to London 's West End to see a show - School of Rock - great show! Oh yeah...And fuck you Isis. The streets were packed this afternoon. You won't win cocksuckers!
Good for you, K3X. I saw on the late news that it could have been much worse, they showed the truck used contained molotov cocktails and more arrests have been made. Fucking cowards.
The only real shame is that the bridges are now all lined with barriers to prevent people repeating it. Crossing London Bridge isn't nearly as enjoyable now.
Good Game, I hate the "its your fault" cheer.
one thing for sure Buttman wants a game seven, refs are only seeing tuxes
Heartbreaker goal by Tuxes. I am ambivalent. At least it save everyone all round from the indignity of PFK touring Montreal cup in hand.
Season on the line and PFK is walking the line.
oops PFK lost his man and its an empty netter
Congrats to Pittsburg, great playoff by PFK and the Preds.
Congrats to the Flightless Swimming Birds. Will Bargain Bin emerge into the sunlight now?I remember watching an interview with Adam West not long ago. He was talking about how all the movie Batmen wore the sculpted costumes with the pecs and abs and in George Clooney's case, nipples. Adam said when he was Batman what the viewer saw was "pure West". I remember the first time I saw the TV show back in '66 that I was puzzled by the fact that Batman didn't really look like a superhero. Still, as a 12 year old I loved the big fight scenes and the POW, BIFF and WHAM sound effects on the screen. Great memories!I finally got around to watching season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix, brutal, bloody fight scenes by comparison. I like the actors though, especially Jon Bernthal as The Punisher.
West was the best Batman, sad that like Star Trek it only got three seasons.Well well well strength down the middle beats power from the goalie out. If Preds had their number one center they might have won. If I am Cosby I am crying at all my brilliant work going to waste, man he would look good with CHe. I noticed it in the Ranger series, we pinch like shit. The Rags rarely let a up the boards out and we rarely trapped them in their own end. The Preds have a Maginot line, we have a wall of sand.I predict both gCHuck and N8 will stay signed to nice cap friendly long term contracts. $3.5 for N8 and $6 for gCHuck.
Someone on Twitter suggested erecting a bronze statue of Sid outside the Bell Centre. I'm actually okay with that.
Really? Didn't you repeatedly point out that PK no longer wears a Habs sweater ? So did I miss something or did our incompetent GM acquire Crosby? Quite hypocritical to pick and choose only when that suits you.
T'was lost on you my dear...enjoy the summer now that it's finally here!
Few days ago at Palais du Congres Molson was asked who he was rooting for, with a pained look on his face he says 'you mean in the final? reporter says yes, Molson says I root for the Canadiens.Now he tweets 'Félicitations...congratulations Pittsburgh!' You can bet your last nickle he was rooting for the Pens and probably got on his knees every night and prayed the Preds wouldn't win to avoid a worse PR nightmare. He probably had many sleepless nights.Too bad that Rinne couldn't stop a beachball in Pittsburgh. Reminds me of how Lunqist and Rask were at the Bell Centre.You would think the NHL would be able to find competent officiating, 2 non-calls or offsetting for Crosby last game (that's just the latest few) and a ref out of position prematurely blows cancelling Sissons' opening the score in an ELIMINATION game of the Cup Final. Sounds like sour grapes but if you watched all the games this has been an issue. Anaheim officials were simply atrocious too.NBC rep was strolling the concourse offering Preds fans free hats in exchange for their anit-Milbury signs so they wouldn't be seen on TV. Hats? Seriously? Fire the loser's ass.Congrats to the Pens and congrats to the Preds coming within 2 wins while missing their top centre and losing Fiala vs Blues. PK can hold his head high, he played great during the playoffs and only a hater would say otherwise.
“What’s the Pittsburgh model? They got a lottery. They won a goddamn lottery and they got the best player in the game (Sidney Crosby). Is that available to me? Should we do that? Should we ask the league to have a lottery this year, and maybe we pick first? Pittsburgh model, my ass. I mean, they got the best player in the game in the lottery. Ray Shero’s done a good job. He’s an excellent GM and he’s a friend of mine. But I love when people talk about the Pittsburgh model. The simple fact is, they got the best player in the draft. We came in second that year in Anaheim. We got Bobby Ryan out of that — impact player, good player. They got Sidney Crosby in the lottery.”–Brian Burke
The Habs would have traded him.
The jury is still out on PFK. On the ice he is a great player, its the off ice stuff that continues to set him apart. In the NFL and NBA all good, in the NHL against the code.
The jury is the beating-drum-Montreal media who won't accept that PK is just a great player and tey will side with the Habs GM and beat their drum no matter what the script is.
Glad that's over with. Nothing against Crosby, but too bad i'll need to endure another damn parade in his honour. What's next? The expansion draft. I'm actually kind of looking forward to that - it would be fun to try to piece together a competent team from everybody's leftovers. I wonder if there are players on the Habs (and other teams) that secretly hope to be left off the protected list and would rather a fresh start in Vegas? I would think so considering the level of talent going to a new club means a player playing 10 minutes on his current team could be playing 15 or more on a brand new squad.
It would be like the leafs, no pressure because there is no expectation of winning and players not having a tight leash around their necks.
Maybe this summer Sid will approach Mario and say: "Boss, I've done all I can do here, how about I get traded to my childhood favourites, the Habs and win a Cup up there so The Maritimer can die happy."
Hey FHFriends, was down in, wait for it, Toronto for biz and hung out in my hometown of Cambridge for a few days. Ate well, saw some family and friends and even too in a classic car show.Congrats to Sid and the Pens.
Congrats to the Pens. I agree with Steve for the Pittsburgh model. It's a tanking model and, luck would have it, a lockout. Anyway, no need to dwell!Looking forward to the expansion, interesting stuff coming up!Have a good summer FHFs!!!moe: what kind of rhum?
Hey Had.I'm partial to 5 year old +. My faves are Mount Gay 1703; http://www.mountgayrum.com and Plantation; https://www.plantationrum.com/rums-plantation#our-signature-blendsI'm also good with Brugal Anejo Sup; https://www.brugal-rum.com/our-rum/anejo/
All brands I do not know and eager to discover. I'll drop you a line in here sometime in the summer and we can set it up!
Ten Questions from Steve just because I can ask themcorrupt third world regimes, do you agree?2) The leftovers was not brilliant but left an important message. Love is greater than faith. Do you agree?3)The Saudi war on Qatar is more than arguing about who has the best Hard Rock Cafe featuring a George Harrison Guitar. Seriously how many people in the world can pronounce Qatar successfully and after that care enough about its Quebec city lite population to care. The war on terrorism goes full Monty Python's IMHO.4) Have you heard any of the remixed Sgt Peppers? If you have can you say its better than the first release CD. No matter what it all sounds fantastic to me.6) Will Andrew Scheer ever be found texting somethingwith an alter boy? IMHO the whole Can Con and US Republican party is full of self hating gays, can you say Barry Trost?7) They put the muzzle on PFK in Nashville. Can White people ever get used to Black athletes using the man for their own purposes?8) If you could make Wonder Women fall in love with you would it be for a long or short time. I like strong womenbut I would always worry that someone would make a bullet that defeated her bracelets, and I would tell her to stayat home and she would beat the crap out of me and leave.9) Would you go to Mars as Stanley Robinson colonistas governor of internet thought? I would go to Mars right now because I have lived everything in this earth possibleand working at a call station I do not see anything earth changing in my future. All humans who are not greybacksseek earthshaking change.10) Lawyers are always people of exceptional intelligenceeven when it comes from the mailroom. Their job is at the truth level mostly pedestrian. In reality good lawyers combine hollywood with the manhattan project to destroyeverything. Do you think lawyers will be replaced by AIbecause its the lowest hanging fruit?
Welcome back moe! See any nice classic Mustangs? My all time fave would be the 1969 Boss 429.
There were a few but nothing extraordinary. The highlights were some Falcons and some really nice Buicks. A sweet light green 68 Valiant caught my eye. My nephew took some pics. Send/post them later.
Looks like TrannaSportsNetwork is now the Habs' English regional broadcaster. 690 gets a 5-yr extension.
TSN gets rewarded for being good little drum-beaters.
Love Bell the sound makes me tinkle like pavlovs dog.gChuck is a party mister and we cant have that. Jesus CHrist on a cross can we not accept that people who are rich will party. If its an on the ice issue then deal, otherwise just accept the talent as it is.
Post Sid hoisting the Cup, nothing but leaf. Nothing. Fucking putrid SFU.
OK Bergevin. How about you do your job and find one fucking talented player. Just one.
Probably go for Dan Girardi now that the Rags bought him out. He'll be 34 when the season starts and you can never have enough Dmen.
McSplooge says gCHyuk and a 1st is on the table but didn't say who the player they offered him for is.
This comment has been removed by the author.
Anything on the Galchenyuk front?According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the Montreal Canadiens are "most certainly listening" to trade talks when it comes to sniper Alex Galchenyuk, but are not actively trying to deal the American.Well there it is. See ya CHucky.
You beat me to it. Alas, poor gCHuk, we knew you well.
Basu: 'Random fact: Alex Galchenyuk was tied for 11th in NHL scoring and capably playing center when he injured his knee in December. Carry on.'Dano replaced DDD as the new chou-chou because BBB drafted him in Chicago. Question now is who takes over gCHyuk's spot as scacpegoat next season.
Someone else tweeted " Habs management = Masters of confusion. From it's all on me, to all on them. From building through the draft to drafting is hard."
Someone on 690 points out his defensive issues and the willingness to improve and throws in that he wasn't selected for team USA. hahahahaBeat that Habs drum boys.
Hey BBB, Chris Neil's available. #grit
@mckennaconor Hearing a lot of rumblings that a Drouin/Galchenyuk swap is coming...I'm no tradebreaker, so take it for what it's worthReplying to @mckennaconoragain, nothing definitive, but sounds like the Habs would be packaging a first with Galchenyuk in the deal.
Gchuyk for Droiun I could live with...but not + a first rounder
It's all in a name.
Cooper didn't like him so he sat out in Tampa asking to be traded and they have a problem with gCHyuk having going out at night? AF didn't like PFK, if Drouin has issues with Julien what makes them think they can do better than Tampa did?
Forgot to finish my thought. So, if they have problems with Drouin and end up trading him, then they lose both players in the end.
What a stupid fucking trade that would be especially if the Habs cough up extra. Bozo the GM is capable of it. Another sideways move where it looks like he's doing something but accomplishing nothing. Fuck.
R.I.P. Don Matthews
As trade season and this draft approaches it is vital to remember one very important thing... Marc Bergevin will stare you straight in the face and tell you lies without blinking an eye. Some people think that is an admirable quality in a gm...i do not!
gCHuck for Druid straight up, yes. Since we have no use for first round picks, why not throw it in.TFS over $9mill, we will make the playoffs forever if he is healthy. We will never win unless God wants us too. I want him back but I dont think Che is going to be here. Single Russian male seeking Tiger girls, its Vegas.
Did the Rolling Stones exile Keith Richards on Mainstreet for mainlining?
Read an article on DLC where Mrs. Radulov posted an instagram on June 2 to clarify that she broke it off and while she said he is a generous and a good father he really hasn't changed.Another article said the reason he was toothless away from the rink as well as on it for a few months was because he lost his partial during a Christmas dinner at Patches' house. Another said when the Habs reported he was out with flu-like symptoms, he was see in a resto-bar in Villeray eating tar-tar and a couple of drinks.Another as per a source in he was partying in with a couple Tampa players (translated to English) : "Alexander Radulov did not really change, he changed his marketing. I talked to a guy who was in Tampa Bay during the season then he said that Alexander Radulov was on the fucking big party. It has not really changed. You're an animal party, you're an animal party! You change a little ... But it's still in you! "So, is gCHyuk's nightlife worse than what is reported about Radulov or is management trying to keep one issue under wraps more than the other because one is now the supposedly matured/changed veteran who has a family?
Hey look BBB, 37 yr-old Dman Beauchemin was bought out so he's available.
If you thought the Sabres always gave the Habs trouble before, it's going get worse now that they hired Phil Housley as head coach. Preds are going to miss him for sure.
The Canadiens acquire Jonathan Drouin + a cond. 6th-round pick (2018) from TBL, in return for M. Sergachev + a cond. 2nd-round pick (2018).
I'm glad they didn't get rid of gCHyuk but didn't BBB say he wouldn't trade Sergachev?
Wow, Sergachev? I'm kind of shocked.
I will take that trade. Sergachev is not a proven commodity yet so why not. Keeping gCHuyk is probably a good move. Trades are hard. Hope Droiun does choke with the hometown pressure
So much for the 'building from the draft' BBB always preaches. Agree he's not a proven commodity but wasn't he touted prospect? Well, they got a good asset and the local media will love it.
Yeah, home boy pressure. I hope he's ready!
If they don't trade Galchenyuk I guess Drouin gives up #27.We need a nick.
Condition on the picks in Tampa-Montreal trade is that if Sergachev plays 40 games for Bolts next season, there are no picks exchanged.
Told his agent Allan Walsh 'This is my childhood dream come true.'
Kids's got talent, hope he doesn't get stifled. Going to be media lots of pressure on him.
*lots of media pressure*
We need a new thread...
Bob McKenzie: 'It is believed MTL GM Marc Bergevin and Drouin's agent Allan Walsh have already commenced negotiations on a contract extension.Just opinion on my part, but if anything, I think this Drouin trade could make it more likely that Alex Galchenyuk will be traded.'
More Bob: Drouin is RFA. Potential stars coming off ELC usually get 5 or 6 x $6M, give or take $500K. So a range of $5.5M to $6.5M. No prob for MTL.TB, on other hand, couldn't handle that type of Drouin contract. Helps their cap; allows them to protect an extra F in expansion......and TB gets the young defenceman it has been looking for. Trading Tyler Johnson wouldn't get them a Sergachev. It had to be Drouin.
I can live with this. Bargain Bin and TT will probably trade up in the draft to get another high-end prospect D. I really, really hope they hang on to AG27 but I think BBB has more irons in the fire.BBB trading away all these prospects is fucking up my hockey card collection of Habs rookies. I had Sergachev... now he's a fucking Dolt.
Mayor Coderre stirring the pot?Jonathan Drouin portait le #27 avec TampaBay portera-t-il le même numéro avec le Canadien? Donc? ;)
