Canadiens 6, Thrashers 3?


Yeah, right. The Montreal Canadiens? Someone read that score incorrectly.

hockeyzombie said...

Hey give some f'n credit where credit is due.

You guys give up on this team too easily.

Pisses me off.

Tom said...

After watching every game of the Bob Gainey era, this is the first game I missed.

Can someone fill me in on the game. From the highlights, it looked like we benefited from some lucky bounces, but we onlt took about 20 shots.

Was it just a fluke?

HabsFan29 said...

@Tom - not a fluke. we actually played pretty well, took advantage of our chances. the TKK line was all over the place creating chances. Defense played reasonably well (Breezer excepted as always)

@hockeyzombie:

Let's see them do this more than once every six months (and against a team that isn't fucking terrible) before giving them too much credit.

Besides, we've kinda been on the "Habs Suck" bandwagon since day one of the blog. It's what we do.

James said...

No more 'fucking' in front of the team name? Are they already absolved of this entire damn mess??

Kmaxx said...

I watched and even though they scored 6 goals - WTF!!! - they only took about 20 shots. Only 4 in the 1st and 10 in the 2nd - most of those on the PP - so hardly convincing - and this was the Thrashers we're talking about too! TFS did ok so it should help his confidence - for a day or so - let's see what happens when he faces a proper team! Still a win is a win at this point.

Word verification: Zesse.

Like, "Tampa Bay is clearly a 'real' team, zesse". This is, of course, while I hold you up and rob you at knifepoint. Context is important.

First off, in today's NHL, any team could go toe to toe when it comes to 5on5 hockey. The PP and PK make the biggest difference in the 'NEW' NHL. Anyway, what pissed me off the most yesterday was hearing Kovy Chants ringing in the Phone Booth instead of Tanguay. Makes me sick to my stomach.

What ever, bring on Lecavalier and St Louis. Lets here them fans chant Lecavalier's name until they dry their throats where they cant even drink anymore. maybe that will help him think of coming here to play with Tanguay.

Boob Gainey said...

Top line next year:

Tanguay - Lecavalier - Kovalev.

2nd line

Sedin - Koivu - Sedin

3rd line

Hossa - Lang - Higgins

4th line

Max Pac - Mad Max - Tenderness

Habsfan10 said...

No fucking Sedins! We've already got a brother act that won't ask for $7 million a year each.

No Kovy either, if I get my way.

Yeah, I said it. I want Kovy out.

moeman said...

@hf29, TKK is too simple, I was gonna label them the not-lemonparty.org line.

Word Verif = forne

James said...

Get Kovy the fuck out of here ASAFP.

The Sedins are Swedish. Koivu is a Finn. This line would skulk like a retarded kid with no chocolate.

Jaybird said...

Fuck anyone who wants Kovy gone.

There I said it.

Obviously no one remembers the ten years we had NO one interesting to watch and relied on Oleg Petrov for scoring. You take the ups with the downs people. He has been and will be our best playoff performer. I know all the habs fans who are secret self masochists want us to miss the playoffs but were back and I see bright things on the horizon. Montreal beats Boston in six games in the first round. Run it.

Montréaliste1 said...

I agree with meoman. You guys can do better than TKK.

lame propositions:

FCKK: french connection-Koivu -Kovalev

Russian-Guay-Saks

SAK-AT-AK - sak atak

HabsFan29 said...

trust me everyone. TKK was just a shorthand, i never meant it to be a nickname. stand by for the unveiling of the super brilliant sexually suggestive line name in tomorrow's preview

/ as soon as i come up with it

I like MSOG (and FFF cuz it rhymes with 4HF).

Holy Flannel said...

That sound you hear?

The entire city of montreal collectively breathing a sigh of relief.

I promised myself that, no matter what, I would not jump back on the band wagon if they won, but fuck it. After an incredible performance by our three offensive leaders, I couldn't help but welcome the (Fucking) Habs back into my heart.

Also, everyone's mentionning how good the first line was, how about some love for our D-men? 3 assists for Markov, DOOM looking good and Gorges blocking that shot and staying on the ice, fighting for position in front of Price... it doesn't get much better than that.

Robert L said...

I named the trio, the FA-FU line!

Here's an FHF special. You boys shouldn't have missed this one!

PLAN THE PARADE!

Ian Vitro said...

@HF10, James: Can I get a hallelujah?! Fuck Kovy!

I don't want anything to do with his brooding ass. If I hear his name with "enigma" in the same sentence I'm going to fucking throttle someone. I want someone to pour pucks in the net, not some fucking Japanese puzzle about one hand clapping.

If he had Lapierre's work ethic I'd be all over him. He doesn't. I'll take Koivu in the playoffs over Kovy any day of the week.

Anonymous said...

@ Jaybird - I'm with you on Kovy. Thanks for putting it out there.

South Shore Habs Fan said...

I'm surprised "Danse Privé" or "Danse Contact" haven't been mentioned yet. What gives?!

As for Kovy - depends what's available this summer. If we can get a better/more reliable sniper via trade or UFA, then either Kovy goes or takes a pay- and icetime-cut. If there's nothing better out there... well, I'd rather have him on my team than against me.

Boob Gainey said...

Kovy pour toujours!

moeman said...

Did hf29 see any of these ?

lawyergirl77 said...

I'm kind of schizo when it comes to Kovy. There are times when I want to throw him under a bus, and others when I like how kooky and generally messed up the guy is.

But I think I'm with SSHF on this - I would rather have him on my team than against my team... unless the bullshit continues throughout the playoffs. He hurts the team when he becomes a distraction, and that,s the part that worries me.

Koivu's drama is all manufactured by the French media in order to sell papers/advertising space. Kovy's is all him, which is also why he's a media darling.

That being said, I've always said that Kovy is good to have in the playoffs 'cause that's usually when he really shines. If he stinks the joint out again this year, then I might be lining up to throw him under the bus...

*sigh* I think I'm getting splinters in my ass from sitting on the fence. Le sigh.

cetterobidas said...

Wow. Kovy had a good game. About fuckin' time. I hope this douche gets his walking papers after this season. Sorry, but if I'm boss, my numero un offensive gar shouldn't need a stress leave to perform. Also Kirk Muller should be social co-ordinator after this season and take his leave from behind the pines. Or go coach for the blue team.

punkster said...

Damn...I thought there was something odd about that bowling trip they took...and here's the proof.

Word of the day: thempins (as in "Man, thempins sure look firm")

South Shore Habs Fan said...

cetterobidas - Should we really be counting on him to be the go-to guy, though? Kovy has been an excellent second-line winger and PP specialist his whole career, but he's no Jagr or Bure. I know he's getting the dollars and the icetime, but that's more management's fault than his own.

Not saying that he doesn't frustrate the hell out of me, but I would have no problem whatsoever if he were to take a modest pay cut, and stick around in Montreal scoring 25 goals, 60 pts a season, teaching the young guns some tricks, and wowing us with the occasional dangle (occasional, I said occasional, Kovy!) until he's 50, like he said he wanted.


I'll still enjoy watching him this season, though.

Number31 said...

Kovy for life. This team was terrible without him. Like even worse when he does nothing because at least he's amusing. And boy do I love it when he gets angry. No more Revenge Elbow(tm) though, 'cause he may get suspended but the angry puck shooting is just as good.

Moey said...

I want Kovy to stay, the team would be boring without him. What would be ideal is finally getting that big first line talented center with Kovy on the wing.
