FIFYMolson checks bank balance. Habs are profiting. MB is good in/for Molson's books.
I will never outwardly hope for the Habs to tank. There is just no guarantee that it will produce results. It can work, but a team has to be terrible, like bottom 5 terrible for a long time for it to work out. The Hawks are a prime example. They were horrible for a long time before grabbing Kane at #1 (2007) and Toews at #3 (2006). Pens got Malkin at #2 (2004) and 'won' the Crosby lottery in 2005. Took Jordan Staal at #2 ahead of Toews in 2006. Imagine had they taken JT! They have won 5 cups in the past dozen years or so. On the flip side, the Oilers have had top 5 picks for the past 237 years or so and are still struggling to stay out of the basement. The Caps selected OV at #1 in 2004 and Backstrom at #4 in 2006. They are now 32 and 30 respectively and the Caps' window is closing faster than a rocket full of monkeys. It's undermined what the leaf will do with their suckage, having picked Nylander, Marner and Mattews at #8,4,1 respectively from '14 to '16. Again, time is an issue, but the cap is going up another 3 million, so maybe they retain that core long enough to garner success (god help us all).Point is to get good enough to win and stay competitive via the draft route, first off a team has to completely suck (not just sort of suck like the Habs) for a long time. And then, the team needs competent management in place to be able to fill in the spaces among those high draft picks that were achieved. I think the Hawks mastered this beyond compare. Sadly the Habs don't have the Bowman blood guiding the ship and until it has somebody of equal calibre, I fear the wheel will be tied to the port side and the Habs will continue to sail in circles, like they're screwing in a canoe. I hope I'm wrong.
St Paddy you missed a saliet point. The ability to get along with others. Miliseconds of speed can you handle that. I play games, PC games, single shooter, no multiplayer. I am not a millisecond escort to orgasam. However through repeated actions I score. DUh train the mind to hit the net and conquer.
You're not wrong.
, I have never consumed a magic mushroom. I have heard stories. I have heard all kinds of truth. The besAs a good standing citizen who never sits down and crosses borders with regularity I can say with Trump like trutht recollection I have is of my friend not even of legal drinking age, a guy who did not drink, getting magic mushrooms in his spaghetti. I may or may not have put them there.He was dead at sundown, and I was on the run. Thats were it all started for my friend, magic mushrooms. Some people gamble, some people drink to much, some people think the skygod will be there when they desperately need a touch or a hug from above. My friend chose mushroom because when he was consuming that power he walked on the fifth or maybe even the sixth astaral plane.Now I do not need to educate anyone about the way the planes of existance work. Thats why manyexperts think that UFO are just from a parell universe and then the fight is all white tuplip.What I am saying today, is that we have so many dimensions we dont know to conquer. The one true thing is that water becomes ice a zero celiuous and some other ridiculous anglo measuere,So scientificly we should measure everyone for the potential to be fire on ice. For FUCKS sakeis Galchenyk a face that would cause the Flower embarassement?The NHL started as a six team leuge owned by four partners. You do the math. Its all bizall the time. If you love hockey, as I do, put a goalie net in your garage, and shoot pucksat the corners.
Firstly let me say this...NOAR! Secondly let me make a couple of points then I shall leave well enough alone...The Habs are in a pretty bad way. They have a GM who is trying his best but, much like throughout his completely non illustrious playing career, he doesn't possess the skillset to make it to the top. He hired his mate Therrien and kept him too long. In doing so he enabed the destruction of the city's next superstar - PK Subban. Finally when it was either Therrien or him, he sacked him and hired the next best thing he could find in CJ. Julien has drinken the coolaid and now they are working together to ruin the next superstar on the team - Alex Galchenuk - by trying to make him a defenceman. And he clearly is not. He is an offensive threat almost every time he is on the ice - except when he is in his own playing defence with that bastion of the blue line JJD looking at him with scorn from the bench. The Habs needed to core a goal to win last night - and he played 1 minute in the third period. Offensive threats like JDLR and Brian Froese got loads of icetime while Alex sat on the bench because he might have made a bad pass in the neutral zone or something like that. Probably didn't backcheck hard enough for JJD. So now we hve CJ doing the same as Therrien. He is punishing the wrong people and rewarding the wrong people...and the Habs look lost again. Patches plays like he has somewhere else to be and yet he still gets the main minutes he doesn't deserve. They are still on the road to ruin but sadly they will end up trading away decent players for more pluggers before it finally happens. You only get once chance to trade a player so hopefully someone slaps Geoff Molson in the back o the ehad, tells hm to wake up and make a change before it's too late. Otherwise the GM will deal Alex to a team where he will end up being a 50 goal scorer and we'll get a 33 year old past his prime dman and a 4th line plugger. I have no expectations of making the playoffs either this season but I am sure that they will keep us guessing for a few weeks into January...provided the December road trip doesn't kill them off once and for all...but let's see. I did star this season saying I would be positive - it's just that nothing much has changed and we all know the definition of insanity is repeating the same things over and over and expecting a different result.
First, we used to deride Reggie Houle for being a beer salesman disguised as an NHL GM. Well, now you have Geoff Molson, a beer salesman disguised as an NHL owner and bergevin, a used car salesman pretending to be a GM.Second, I was unaware that the numbskull coach threw 27 back on defence and benched him in the 3rd period. If that's true, then Jabba is an even bigger fool than eMpTy.
Sorry the M...hebdid thrown him under the bus buf he didn't actually make him play as a defenceman.... He benched him for the 3rd period for some defensive lapse...
No worries K3X. I've been reading some of the media types who cover the Habs Twitter accounts and some of the comments. The majority are saying trade 27 instead of treating him like shit. You won't get much for him now but Jesus give the kid a chance somewhere else. I'll bet PK is enjoying his time in Nashville now. Also, Julien is no different than Therrien who is no different than Martin. They get a lead and then play not to lose. From my understanding they didn't even try to score in the 3rd period and julien double shifted the defensive players. He started his 2 slowest players in the OT, Weber and Plekanec, there's another old school trait... play the veterans.The teacher's pets are never criticized for fuck ups but he doesn't hesitate to throw players like 27 under the bus. He was the same in Boston, hence Tyler Seguin is in Dallas... and a star. Lou Lamoriello fired him 3 games from the end of the season... because Martin Brodeur asked him to. bergevin threw away another $25 million of Molson's money hiring this jerk.
what to do when you are in a nuclear war? The answer never changes. Grab both ankles, bend over and kiss your ass goodbye
Speaking of the surrealistic pillows upon which we all get a good nights sleep despite the chaos that surrounds you I would like to give some kind of awake recognition to a FHF founder who walks the talk. Internet Freedom. This is bigger than the slave trade. is part of the party struggling to keep it free, without people like him we will all look like Facebook.
