Oh DGMB it don't FHFeel like heaven right now
Don't it FHFeel like something from a dream
Yeah I've never known nothing quite like this
Don't it FHFeel like tonight might never be again
We know better than to try and pretend
DGMB no one could'a ever told me 'bout this
I said yeah yeah

[CHorus:]

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you trade for one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

Well yeah you might have CHased a couple puds around
All it ever got us was down
Then there were those that made us FHFeel good
But never as good as I'm FHFeeling right now
DGMB you're the only one that's never known how
To make me wanna live like I wanna live now
I said yeah yeah

[CHorus:]

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you get one less yard
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

Oh don't let it kill you DGMB, don't let it get to you
Don't let it kill you DGMB, don't let it get to you
It'll be your bleedin' heart, It'll be you cryin' FHFool
Don't let this go too far
Don't let it get to you

  3. Great Cover Cover Moeman. I expect victory tonite.
    Some players slow the game down and some are just slow. LZ moves are well deliberate. His second period moves you can see in the first period.
    Dont forget, Yeti, Jumpin Jack Hab JJCH, and Chrome? Jewelson have yet to lace up.

  42. Unless Buttman rigs the draft, and that would never happen right? We are going to need a nic
    Rasmus Dahlin. Rammer is the obvious CHoice. RaDahLov. Dont worry we can also start looking at the 2019 draft as well. Its three years in the tank before the body can emerge strong and healthy.

  43. Quote from PFK in the Gazette Nov 18....

    “When you think about it, I think it was two years before, we had a great team, put on a great run (in the 2014 playoffs) and I thought a lot of those pieces were still there for us to do it again. But for whatever reason, that was not just part of the plan any more."

    Exactly what I brought up here a couple of weeks ago. We had the pieces, but BBB has fucked up this organization as bad or worse than Grundman, or the Houle/Tremblay fiasco.

    We have SOME talent, but only 2 or 3 players show up consistently, night after night.
    Gallagher and Mete and I am having trouble thinking of a 3rd off the top of my head. Maybe Weber, though his play has been questionable at best on quite a few occasions. I will put Plecanek in as a 3rd guy that gives it all every night. He has been a pleasant surprise this year,for a guy we thought was finished.

    Speaking of finished, Pacioretty! Lazy as fuck most nights,and he is not what he used to be. WTF happened to Petry? He has forgotten how to play defence. Alzner has been a colossal waste of money.

    I don't care to get into the absolutely useless display by the forwards. None of these guys can score. Sure, we plaster the net with shots, night after night. On pace for lowest scoring percent in history. I may have made that part up, but without looking, I would wager we are not far off

    1. all true, but the biggest reason we suck is our development pipeline seems to be run like the Keystone XL. All politics, no practical. TinTin, we traded up, N8 we traded up, two blown calls. Other than TFS and gCHuck do we have one first round draft pick thats worth a fuck this century. Patches is a complementary player, but he needs players to complement.

      There is nothing in the room, there is nothing in the farm, only one CHoice. Dive Dive Dive for 3 seasons. Our core of good young players will just be hitting their prime and we should have a great crop of 20 year olds to put us into contention in the 2020 to 2023 window. Thats a five year plane that even Stalin could not refuse.

    2. Read the PK article earlier this morning and was going to post it then thought nah. PK won the trade and the classless organisation that now exists and their push-the-organisation-narrative media don't give a shit about the kids at the hospital robbing their ray of light PK's visits brought them during his visits. If BBB thinks he has any loyalty among the fans, he should by a dog instead. The way he treated Vodkov is shameful and classless and I say BBB's ego is bigger than PK's. I guess the room is soooo much better with all that 'character', 'leadership' and guys who `hate to lose`. AS PK once said, leadership starts from the top and we all see how that worked/works.

      Delete
    3. PK was traded because of a bad contract. In addition he had a ego the size of CHirchill falls and it produced a lot of energy. However in the end he was all DC and the team was
      AC.

  44. Like most of the team, I tuned out at 3-0.

    Despite the white stuff outside, we are living through some dark days. Question is will it be dark weeks, months, season, seasons?

    In my mind DGMB is done. He cannot be permitted to make any drastic changes. Molson needs to put the CH before the $ign and he's going to lose a lot of $s going forward. Expensive and guaranteed contracts to coaches, ex-coaches, star players and himself will be the end of DGMB.

    The bigger question is who comes in to clean things up and re-lay a foundation for the future. I've/we've made mention of Roy, Brisebois, Robinson, re-Carbo and even Ray Bourque.

    We live in interesting times but not the right kind of interesting.

    I'd start with an

    to Scotty Bowman as an overseer.

    1. Confucius say in every crisis there is an opportunity 危機; This is likely a myth invented by motivational speakers but given the truth or a myth, who you gonna believe.

      The overwhelming glaring fact is that Montreal has not had a cup contending team since 1993.
      We had some pinball teams that might have won if every bounce went our way, but real competive Stanley cup contenders, we are, and have been naught.

      This is where the intersection of biz and sports T bones us. In today's vanilla league you need a game breaker, and absolute stud to win the cup. If you have Knights of the round table better still. The only way to get these CHampions is through the draft. You can add
      better accouterments to get good housekeeping approval, but you need one Colenel Kurtz and a couple of good psychopaths to be victories against the tribes that are very competitive no matter how many 50 cal you possess.

      CHampions are making shots even ten million dollar a year goalies cant stop. In this era of warfare a goalie is like an aircraft carrier, a 20 billion dollar investment that can be rendered useless by a 5 million dollar missle, you do the math.

      I am not sure DGMB needs to walk the plank. He was a rookie and he made some mistakes
      but he never had beef on his plate.

    2. being a whiny bitch is a hundred year habs tradition. thats why we are the only team in the league where the broadcasters actually criticize the team, name names and take no prisoners. Knuckles and Marino would last ten minutes on Toronto Radio. We booded the Rocket, Plante, Beliviau, Dryden. Unfortunately employing Dumb and Dumber is also a Habs tradition. Who thought a bowling alley mestro was going to bring us the cup? FFS I dont think Grundman was even French. This idea of it must be a French guy, Scotty Bowman.

      Habs Fans are sophisticated, critical thinkers, this is what makes the FranChise special. Please keep in the Pinkman tradition being a bitCH M. Its what makes us great.
      We are going to have 3 or 4 years with nothing to entertain us but snark.

  46. Regarding the whiny bitches - that too is on MB. Making FHFers turn on each other...you just know if he's lost this room, he's lost the one that actually matters. I just can't imagine how Geoff can continue to let him make important roster decisions. But who knows? Not me.

Bottom line we may all disagree but this is a great dressing room and no one should be upset at any opinion because we are all FHF, and its a Moetardership, lets just keep on sailing as one institution that can not be abandoned because of failure.

  50. Fantastic read and very good points. As a Haligonian (yep, that's what they call us), I think Bobby Smith is a fantastic idea for president. And separating Molson from hockey operations is the smartest move he could make for his brand and his team.
