Habs retreat to Upper Canada - York Leaves Open Thread

If the old-timey references in the title have you asking "WTF, 29?", scroll down to read Panger's historical epic recap of last night's Columbus mess. Here's your "preview" - Habs suck, TFS tries to right Jaro's ship tonight at 7 PM at the ACC. Pension Plan Puppets is your go-to blog for Leafs info, and The Brass Rail will be packed with horny Torontonians after the game. Make sure to boo Grabs when he scores that winning goal.

Let's all be polite in the comments, eh?

you know i just realized that the Maple Leaf flag was only invented in the 60's so the photo really doesn't fit in with the whole history thing. ah well, nice ass

With all due respect for my flag-on-ass waving compatriots here at 4HF, the Brass Rail? Really?

Whilst in the Big Smoke, head here for some elite entertainment (yes most of the talent is bused in from Montreal, oh wait, I'm making my point).

Where's the ATM?

Also, if the game gets boring, read the menu.

@moeman - no question, the Landing Strip is better than the Rail. the issue is having to go out to the fucking airport

moeman said...

hf29, the Toronto taxi service is quite good and its a bee-line to the beauties. Montreal is sans-pareil but if one has the time (to get there), one will enjoy the class and quality of the Strip. I recommend the combo plate.

moeman said...

Congrats to Glenn Anderson. Its about freakin time he gets in (pun semi-intended).

moeman said...

... and classy guys like Larionov and yes, Scapinello, one of the few respectable refs/linesmen.

van ryn set himself up for that one

Rips it, scores! said...

Tom K. with a game misconduct.....5 minutes Leaf PP.

It was a bad hit, what was he thinking?


And as I type, Leafs score.

Rips it, scores! said...

@ james gillis: Kostopolos had more than enough time to pull out of the hit. Awful positioning by the leaf player on the boards or not, Kost. should have just left it go.

James Gillis said...

van ryn was about to circle the net and all of a sudden he decides to ditch that idea and go the other. meanwhile he sticks his head between him and the boards. Did you see tom k's reaction? im sure if he had more time to react he would never have done. he stayed in a straight line the whole time

James Gillis said...

usually its the very young players that do that but hes been playin for almost 10 years.

and have you ever seen somebody pull out of a situation like that in a space of less than one second?

what is he supposed to do?
(this is not a rhetorical question?

James Gillis said...

lang finally hits the open net

Flying Toaster said...

boarding call on Markov? What the hell man?

lawyergirl77 said...

Fuck.

What sucks more? The Habs' defence sans Hamrlik or the fact that I will have billed close to 30 hours by the time this weekend is over? Discuss...

(It's a tossup for me - both make me want to toss my cookies)

Number31 said...

Grabs is a bitch. I can see Sergei punching him in the face next game.

Anonymous said...

fuck me is grabs a pussy or what...cant wait till the next time they play in montreal...

i will call it now he will miss the game with a yeast infection

HabsFan4 said...

@LG: if the 30 hours fast track you to partnership, then Hamrless Habs.

Otherwise, 30 more hours in The Man's pockets and the Leafs beating the Habs soundly makes for an all 'round shitty weekend.

matt - the collapse is here said...

Okay...lets just put it out there....the Habs are OVERRATED!! Their D, rank fifth in the league?? BULLSHIT - they looked aweful tonight - and their offense?? Do they need some sort of alarm clock to wake up on the bench? Evertime I watch them this season is looks like they sleep through half the game!!!

Number31 said...

At least the Bulldogs beat the Marlies. YAY CHIPS!
