we opened the vault for Pretzel Lurchic, but for CHE no love????Six years 6 million would have been a bargain. Of course we would have made the playoffs this year and not won the cup, so maybe its a blessing in disguise.
RADUUUUULLLLLOOOOOVVVV! CHé it ain't so!I watched the song of the day video. I may now need professional counselling. But it's amazing that there is a song title that literally wraps up our season with a neat little bow.
When CHe bolted, Habs fans felt like a jilted lover. Fuckface bergevin made so many errors last summer, he would have been sent to the ECHL by anybody else. It was criminal. Or blindly stupid.
First come, first served eh? BBB got served his just desserts - a huge dish of nothing.
"If you want desserts - get Ice Cream!"
Well said PK.https://www.sportsnet.ca/shows/tim-and-sid-show/subban-talks-predators-season-personality-nhl/
Just fucking score...
More damning evidence...https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/canadiens-fans-contempt-alex-radulov-misguided/
I blame the media. Case in point, Marino had BBB on the radio and he asked him leading questions which the answers would have been in BBB's favour. Marinaro said CHe would earn more in Dallas even though BBB matched Dallas's offer because of the taxes. So what? If you really want a player you up the offer not just match it to compensate for the tax, when you know full well what the situation is. After that, all the media ran with the tax excuse. That's why it's so hard to sign player. I don't blame Che at all. He was disrespected by BBB's public comments about the contracts to him and Vodkov. The media was beating the drum and and towing the company narrative. A lot of fans eat whatever their fed repeatedly.I'm not saying how much or how long BBB's offer should be and I'm certainly not a fiscal expert but don't throw the tax excuse around as justification why you lost a player to another team.
Essentially, that's what Engels is saying. If you want to keep a player you have to pay them. Even Hitchcock said if you have to eat a few million at the end that's what you have to do. The loyalty quip is bullshit.
Hmmm, decisions, decisions. TVA has Jets vs Preds, RDS has Stars vs Habs. Normally I would probably pvr one and watch the other live and switch back and forth during intermissions but my pvr is recording something else and overlapping the games by an hour.
Not bad so far...why Froese instead of Auto?
Busy day tomorrow so I am gone. Go Habs go!
Well shit! Power was out for a couple hours and when it came back on, pretty sure it fucked up the fridge. Humming like crazy...one thing I've learned over the years it's never worth fixing them anymore. And of course it's a Kenmore anyway...bought from the bargain basement about 5 years ago.
we are running away why why why whygood for Leko and Kid A but a tank killer
Well what a great looking PP. Yoo bad it's only about 60 games too late.
Claude is trying hard to tank but just cant get a break.
lou grant using his skill set, standing in one place and getting pounded. Have to love his standing up for Gem.
did fiver get replaced by some minority women?
no he is there, have not heard his name, but with any luck Mr RitCHe will me seeing his knuckle sandwhiCH.
Beauty of a goal by LHN, but where's the tank?
welcome to 6th pick
I am not a tank driver so a win is a win is a win. I want KidA to get 30 this season...
RIP Stephen Hawkin
RIP indeed. A great man. A great mind.
RIP no smart people left
Missed part of the game. I confess pvr was recording the season finale of This Is Us. Love that show since the first episode. I'm with K3X, I'd like to see KidA get 30. Hope Shaw's injury isn't serious. Only saw the reply but that didn't look good at all.Preds move to 1st overall.
I only saw the 1st period - they looked decent enough in places...but man oh man - Benn is bad. The Blue Jackets were waiting for himti get the puck then pressing as soon as he got it - sure enough he turned it over. Same thing last night and Che absolutely floored him with one of those "hold my beer" type checks - just as they were going to the corner to battle for the puck he stops short and absolutely drills Benn to the ice. Clean, fair and something we all loved watching last yer - this season - not so much! But it brings me to why was Benn saved from going to Vegas instead of (Y)? I know (Y) is in Nashville now but what was it about his game we all loved? Whatever it is, it's well gone! Habs definitely have the Wrong Benn
I too wish to for kidA to get 30. I think I predicted he would lead the team in goals and points (but i'd have to get in the way back machine to confirm that).In reality I also can't cheer for the tank. I enjoyed watching them playing decent hockey and winning last night. I don't think a defenceman is what they need to rebuild around anyway. I'd be perfectly happy with Tkachuk or Zadina. Probably still need a top 4 pick to get one of those guys though. Currently sitting in 6th. And I just can't imaging the bingo ball dropping their way.
Looks like Noah Dobson will be the pick unless they go completely off the board. Good Maritimes kid from PEI playing for the Acadie-Bathurst Titan here in NB. I got a chance to see him play live in the only Sea Dogs game I made it to this year a week ago. Really good skater and puck handler.
if we are 7 or 8 and dont take Joey Velcro, we have a bad GM.
I'll just go with every word after the comma.
Joey's stock keeps dropping. Could trade down quite a few spots and pick him up.He's played wing and Centre, I still say Tkachuk is the right pick for the team if he's available.In the end, because we have a dysfunctional bunch of morons running the team that don't know how to properly grow young talent. Of course by the time this years' draft pick is ready for the big leagues, one can hope we're not still staring at MB and CJ's mugs.
entering the 10th anniversary of the 20th rebuild. You need to take out a loan to buy a beer at the Fourm.
