Crank up the quote machine for the next 3 years

I think we can all agree that the Habs signing The Subbanator to a 3-year deal may be the highlight of the off-season.

Habs get +5 modifier to FUN.

Off season now deemed roaring success. All potential UFAs now free to go. PK F'IN SUBBAN!

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

Lucky bastards. He looked pretty awesomely hilarious at the world juniors.

Ok, done liking him now.
MUST HATE SUBBAN.

Pernell Karl, oh yeah!
That just made my day...

This picture kills me.Hopefully he doesn't start the season with Hamilton (although he probably will). That would be a major letdown.

(salute) Major Letdown.

YYEEESSS!!!

Speaking of Subban quotes, my cousin, Ryan Veitch did an interview with him when he was in the czech republic for the WJC, I'll see if he can dig it out.

VW: "cation" - that reminds me, i need to study for chem

Please, Lord, don't fuck up his development too.

The Subbanator make may us forget KRex and/or be put on a line with the same KRex and really make it fun.

WV = baurn, as in P.K. was baurn to be a Hab. When he was drafted he heartily laughed at the loser leaf (and it's fan) and said he hoped to one day parade the Stanley Cup for the Centre of the Universe kids to see.

I am openly jealous. The Subbanator looks like the real deal.

Shutdown said...

am i the only one who wants Subban in the AHL for a full season?

Daniel Plainview said...

Yes, AHL for at least a year. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this guy turns out. I think the Habs defense prospects are pretty awesome overall.

Shutdown said...

Yup. D prospects are awesome.
Subban McDonagh
Weber Fischer

Hell, throw O'Byrne in there, and we're still looking pretty good.


By the way, anyone else want Bob to throw an offer sheet at Travis Zajac?

Daniel Plainview said...

if the defense prospects pan out decently and Price continues to progress and we hire the right coach I imagine Montreal will be very difficult to play against in a few more years.

Daniel Plainview said...

Caps shit the bed big time. Wow.

Number31 said...

Woo! Subban!

Habs powerplay 2010: Weber and Subban trading rocket bombs fromt he point.

Any kid who says he wakes up every morning and waves to his Habs flag hanging on his wall BETTER NOT be traded for Vinny LeDouche.

<3 PK

@ Shutdown
If we're going to be asswipes with the offer sheets, why not also try to steal Krejci out of Boston, or Bolland or Versteeg out of Chicago?

@ Number31
Add Markov to that equation and we're back to the #1 powerplay in the league. Hell yes.


Man, did Alex Spooge suck tonight or what? I half-expected Ovie to just stop skating and stare at him with a "wtf?" look on his face.

I saw Subban play in the OHL this year. We're going to absolutely love him, ad he's going to drive us absolutely crazy: he was by far the best player on the ice (probably the best skater I've ever seen in Junior, and an amazing passer), but he was also a turnover machine, and was really afraid of contact.

Don't get me wrong, I love him and he's going to be tons 'o fun. But we're for every dozen highlight-reel plays, we're getting a half-dozen heart attacks.

And as for offer sheets, how's about Brandon Dubinsky? I think Krejci (and lots of Bruins) are due for a disappointing year next year. Everything went well for them this year-- they're like last year's Habs, and Krejci is this year's Pleks.

ZombieKrejci, coming to a rink near you.

versteeg is offer sheet worthy for sure. and so is scottie upshall -- he was stellar in the iihf tourney.

before i go on, broken keyboard with the key between a and d not working. zo i uze the z and zpeak with a phony nazi accent.
another offer zheet worthy guy, ezpecially conzidering the fact that we'll mozt likely be zaying goodbye to komo, iz atlanta'z valabik. zimilar type player, maybe even bigger, and meaner to boot. more of an upzide, younger, and can't be any worze on offenze.
