Lots of people may want to buy them, but apparently no one wants to work for them.
First Mats, then Pavel, most recently Alexei, now Francois. Which one of those names doesn't belong? Well, apparently it belongs in Toronto because Brian Burke just hired Francois Allaire to be Toronto's new goaltending coach. Guess Habs fans better get used to hearing that Allaire is going to turn Justin Pogge into a better tender than TFS(tm)...which we'll be hearing at least until Pogge gets into his first exhibition game.
I was only half joking when I said a couple of days ago that yEmelin's (I've seen it spelled both ways so this about covers it) rejection of the Habs cast a pale over Bob's anicipated UFA efforts come July 1st. Well I'm not joking anymore. This team is fucked if even hometown guys don't want to come back home.
p.s. Dave Stubbs: please don't steal our headlines again. It took us all of 15 seconds to come up with.
HF29 UPDATE - If anyone cares, I'll be on CBC Radio today at 3:35 PM. Here's a link to listen live. I'm sure, you know, that no one cares, you know, so carry on.
