Play Your Tits Off Preview - A Video Break with The Mullet

While we await our goalie and forward previews, we thought we'd check out what others have to say about the series. In my search of the internet, I have yet to find one person picking the Bruins. Even the Boston Globe has the Habs in 6. To me, this is a bad sign. Of course, everything to me is a bad sign. Enjoy Barry Melrose.

It IS bad! 11 of us guys got together for a hockey pool. Pack of smokes and a hit of meth to enter. I kid - it's cash ($50) winner take all. It's not that kind of joint (pardon the horrible, unintended pun).

Anyway, of the 110 players drafted, one Bruin (Savard) and 10 Habs were picked. 3 of us are Habs fans, 2 Bruins and the rest won't say (read Leafs fans). One of the Bruin fans took Kovy with his 1st pick. Pleks went 2nd to the other guy!

I fear we're the NE Patriots of the NHL this year.

But I believe. I ended up with Streit, liltits and took a risk on Ryder. Hmm, I wonder if he has ties to the moving company of the same name and will relocate for free this summer...

I wouldn't fret that the Bruins will pin up series predictions on their bulletin board. Frankly, if they're not pissed that they lost the season series 8-0, then those players have some series problems.

No matter what, you know that Boston's going to be playing hard. But you also know that even when they do play hard, they aren't a match for the Habs at the top of their game.

It's Montreal's series to lose, as simple as that.

typo:

"then those players have some series problems"

should be:

"then those players have some serious problems."

And they will have series problems.

@fezworth - it still made sense the old way!

yeah fez, there's like 12 ppl already. plus the bartender. i'll be the one in the hand-knit canadiens jersey replica. it's gonna blow your mind!

do you have facebook? there is a group called Habs Fans In Calgary and all the events are planned through there. I imagine we'll be doing Rose and Crown for the first round and perhaps look at moving elsewhere later depending on how it goes.

I believe that it's meant to be
and it Feels a little like '93
With failing hands we hold it high
And raise number 25 to the sky

I believe we're right in the mix and it
Feels a little like '86
With failing hands we hold it high
And raise number 25 to the sky

Here's a rap from the cradle of organized sports
Where we come together for a common cause
I remember number 24
Cheers busting out every house, every home

Hard to believe it was so long ago
And I know we got a long, long way to go
But I believe this city's got a chance to cop it
So I bust my Komisarek shirt and rock it
Spoke to the ghost of the Rocket
Told me once the wheels are in motion can't stop it

Yeah, I thought back to that ten minute O
When his tear drops blessed the Bell Centre floor
Put a lot of thought to what I'd rhyme about
How can I wrap my mind around?

Locking number 25 down
There has never been a better time than now

I believe that it's meant to be
and it Feels a little like '93
With failing hands we hold it high
And raise number 25 to the sky
I believe we're right in the mix and it
Feels a little like '86
With failing hands we hold it high
And raise number 25 to the sky

Let's party all night for the red, blue and white
And shine bright like the Place Ville Marie lights
It's been a hundred years, 1909
And in a quarter of that time we've paraded with pride
And if this year we win number 25
You can bet there'll be elated celebrating city-wide

Yeah, once in a while I pass by the Big O
And think since we lost our team we haven't been exposed
So I climb the tower, raise a glass up to the 'Spos
Then I snatch the torch and pass it to the ghosts
I know this 25th crusade won't fail
And we'll be sipping from the holiest of grails,
yeah

Sometimes it's by the numbers we're defined
23, 11, 27, 10 and 9
And maybe number one if you're seeing the signs
Because this year I'm seeing and believing twenty-five

Bryan I swear I never heard it. I get all my Hbas news and media from this site. If it's not on it, I've never heard of it
