  1. Very apropos. Max was frustrating because he always messed up and was always bailed out by '99' just like BBB and TFS.

  4. Freezing rain continuing all day and all the schools are closed. Should be record-breaking low attendance tonight. Is Agent 86 there as homage to the '86 Cup winning Habs remembered fondly today?

  5. I re-send the Red Fisher column and I remember why he was as fevered as he was. A master storyteller. As for this bunch, ...meh! Just fucking score a few is all I got...

  7. When I think about it, our Max wears #67. '67 should be remembered for one thing and one thing only and it ain't the Centennial, but rather the last time a certain not to be named team won the cup. Maybe he should start sporting 86 or 93. It's great to have him on the team when he decides he wants to score goals, but if he can fetch a decent price, so be it. Problem being the guy we got trying to fetch that price...as we know trades are hard and you can't get a #1C.

    1. My read on PatChes is he scores goals, but he is not a playoff guy. Correct me if I am wrong but Superplexxe has outscored him CHecking the best players in the world in the playoffs. FUCK regular season players. I only want CHampions.

  8. The best place for your cell phone in under your foot being crusCHed. The cell phone, search engines, online shopping and social media are all euphemisms for Big Brother. I give you a penny and take a dollar and you elect Trump, Gold Jerry pure Gold.

    I loved Get Smart, it was so Smart, and 99 remains a dream girl up there with Jennie and Mary Tyler Moore. There are a lot of female Characters on the small screen today. I cant think of one that would push those femmes of my fantasy list. Starbuck maybe, a couple of Star Trek girls for sure, in a very short exposure I still have to put Diadaio from True Crimes in the bucket.

  20. Only caught the last 5 minutes. Sounds like a good team win.

  21. A win is a win. Avs were the hottest team in the league...Habs not so much...but a good pp, nice face off percentage win and some good work by all.

  22. that win moved us from 4th to fifth pick.

  23. I've never been a fan of cheering against another team, like so many do. I know so many people that just love sticking it to me that the Habs are sucking this year (and most of them cheer for a team that has sucked for 50 years and counting). But I blame the media (as moe's addition to this page proves) for my disdain for the leafs. They're probably a fun young team to watch, but I'll never know and will always cheer against any team playing against them.

    That said, if they run into a 5 game skid and the Habs or Wings can somehow manage a 5 game win streak, the leafs are on the brink of being on the outside looking in. I don't expect our Habs to make the playoffs and there's probably no point to it anyway, but whether it's the Habs or Wings, having the leafs bumped out of the playoff picture might be the only thing that can save this season for me. And I feel bad about that, because I used to hate those people. But I get it. Same way I get the hate for the Patriots. Their coverage is nearly as bad as the leafs. Difference being they deserve the coverage they get. Anyway that's my new goal. Maybe the Habs will turn it on, mixed with a leafy losing streak. Got 4 weeks for this to happen. It's highly unlikely but I'm going to go wild and cross my fingers on this one. Fuck the draft picks, they'll fuck it up anyway.

      I think it's human nature to dislike a sporting franchise that's successful over a long period of time, like the Pats or Cowboys or Habs or Man U. Eventually their followers become entitled or arrogant which rubs people the wrong way.

      There's no excuse for leafools to feel entitled but isn't that the whole Toronto mentality, we are better than everybody else?

  25. I have never dumpster dived, but understand that its a concept for living off the grid.
    With fiver, dutch gretzky, and LB DBMB has proven he can find diamonds in the sidewalk. Now he has to move from a playstation to a pc platform to win the cup. We break down when the teams come on heavy. So lets rotate, small drones hitting aircraft carriers.

  26. I also like how the 4 mentions about the Habs on moe's SFU cut'n'paste isn't actually about the Habs. 2 are about the trade deadline, one is about Druid talking about MacKinnon and the other is about Markov not playing for Russia (is it because he's coming back to Montreal?)

  27. Vodkov was ineligible by dint of being a relative late-comer to the K and not getting the requisite forms in order or something. I think there is bad blood there with BBB now; otherwise he wouldn't have signed in the K in the first place.

    BBB put his team second to his ego. Dogs and loyalty and all that, no wonder BBB lost the bulk of the fans.

    It's ironic that Habs fans have been complaining for decades now that Montreal does not have and can't win without a No. 1 center. Edmonton has arguably THREE of them and they suck even worse.

    At one time I was as big a Habs fan as there was and would hardly ever miss a game. I'll bet I haven't watched 5 games this whole season and upon refection, I haven't been watching much the last three years. The trading of PK and bargain bin's shoddy treatment of Vodkov really soured my opinion of Geoff Molson's plaything. How is everyone else feeling these days? 29 laid bare his soul so we know where he stands.

    1. I'm with you the M. There was a time not long ago (pre trade) I wouldn't miss more than a handful of games each year. I was excited last year with the additiin of Radulov and he kept me watching. This year I had faint hopes that Drouin would help in that vein, but alas the total dismantling of a promising young puck moving defence corp combined with the inability to do ANYTHING with cap space has left me too weary to tune in to more than a few minutes of most games. I'll keep trying to watch and hope for improvements but as long as BBB is in charge, my expectations will remain next to nil. But I'm still keeping an eye out for that inevitable leaf slide and whether the Habs will take advantage.

    2. I remember fondly the day Bob Gainey came in as GM and thought: YAY! Finally, I can again follow this team with a little hope and excitement again! The team is again in a misguided, directionless funk that preceded Bob's return. Like that time, the CH needs a new GM to get out of it - and to get me excited about them again.

    3. Living in the UK has made following the Habs a true labour of love and they have been trying with my loyalty quite a lot lately. They became secretive with the Goat and I hated that. I hoped it would change with bbb but he has proven to be arrogant and even more secretive. So I watch when I can but not that often. I follow as best I can and would never support anyone else...but as I have said previously as I get older I get more precious with my time.
