In the middle of the second period of last night’s game, I took out my cell phone and sent HF29 a message: “So what do you think? Is this team for real? I’m confused.”
In wanting to shed some more light on this hesitation I decided to poll the leaders of the world, since they are obviously all Habs fans and all watched the Habs beat up on the Buffalo Buffalos by a score of 6-2.
You know, this Thomas Plekanec iz fool of imagination and creativity. He is magnetic to vatch and vunderfool to follow. I can’t believe how he can recover from the abysmal dread of a 7-game slump, stuck in terminal agony and dream monsters haunting his nights. The trick in his hat proved the most incredible repellant of dark angels infesting his cavernous soul. Also, depression is inescapable and drapes a somber coat of macabre colors in the infested craters of your mind.

Komrad Kovalev has done well to represent his kountry and has avoided his family being subjected to repeated “korrections” at home in kase of ANY misrepresentations of our homeland’s superiority at the game of hockey that we have invented for the world. Lenin looks on from the korner of his embalmed pupil and nods a kreaky acknowledgment of approval. These four 4 kontributions to goal klearly symbolize Kovalev’s fondness of the four pillars of our identity: Trotsky, Stalin, Lenin and the website Ass-Cysts.com, a Russian favorite. We would also wish to take the time to send a message to our brothers KGB to find one Khabibulin and return him “unharmed”, we wish to speak with him.

I can hhonesly say dat we did not hhheggspect le Club de Hockey Canadien to go in Buffalo hhand win dat game de way dey did.

Tree for tree. Iss incredible. Dey don’t play soff like Buffalo. Tonight, it was mens against boys. Firss place, really, h’immm so pride to be a Quebecer today until Pitsburgh beat Ottawa and we become in fif place again and I hasshamed.

Whoa this team! Just incrrredible. I watch the game via satellite from Roma. My satellite hooked up to the feed to Tv on restaurant on Dante in Montreal. This tv in restaurant have the hook-up to il Centro Bello (the beautiful Centre). Oh! They play so good. These two breast brothers, hoh! They look so good! Ah, big and plump One, he put a goal and wop! The other do it too. Like they are jealous of each other! Hoh! Look ma, I score a goal! Hey mama, look me too!! Ho! I just wanna make love to the screen! Hoh my! Maybe I canna buy this team and embezzle the country’s public funds into their payroll and use a little extra change that I skimmed of the top to pay off this Marouelli referee, he sounds like a good Italian man who can be bought cheap. Wow! This team! Oh ma Gad!

Gosh, darnit, this is the best American team we’ve got.

And the little player, who was sick and became captain, and almost lost an eye, and came back with career numbers, and willed his team to first place, …YES, he can.
And the sniper, with back to back 30-goal campaigns, and a trade hanging over his head, and stuck in a fowl slump, trying to revive his scoring touch,…YES, he can.
And this Francis Bouillon, our American son, who’s skin is so dark, and who deep inside, may want to be black, and be known as a brother,… YES, he can.
And the goalie, who’s just a kid, who’s never played a single playoff game, who’s taken on the hopes of an entire city, YES,… he can.
And this team, mediocre, for so long, with its frustrated fans, and a beautiful legacy…YES, it can.
And these fans, with their ambitions and their dreams, and their longing for a 25th Stanley Cup,
YES!!! They can!

Well, no need for HF29’s insight, I guess. The world has spoken and it is firmly behind the Habs. Kofi-gure.
