Regarding B. Raymond, how long do you thin kit will be before Francophones completely disown the Habs?

I'm really suprised Quebec hasn't produced a Balsillie-like character looking to drum up local support for relocating a team to Quebec and stocking it entirely with gars de chez nous.

In fact, they'll sell shares in it so every ticket buyer will be an owner.

Won't happen.

@29 - why is red fisher an idiot?

J.T. said...

I think Red Fisher died in 1987 and the Gazette's just been recycling his old stuff for the last 22 years. I swear to god I've read the same "Patrick Roy's scum" article at least five times.

Markov can't be captain. The players have said it themselves, he's the quietest guy in the room. I think they need someone who can really rally the troops after their 10th straight loss.

I'm thinking of starting a blog whose express and sole purpose will be to take on the Montreal sports media.

How much work is it?

@J.T.
It's the Charles Schultz phenomenon. Tomorrow Red will talk about his good friend Glen Sather as he attempts to kick a football held by Linus's sneaky sister Lucy. Good Grief!

I agree on Red Fisher... He lost it years ago. All his articles are like autobiographies. He always writes about how he saved the day by talking to Bob, Patrick, the Rocket, Doug Harvey etc..

He is the reason that everything happens with the Habs. I'm sure he told Bob to clean house. He'll write about it if the season is a success.

How long until training camp?

Shutdown said...

Tom-
Rookie camp has got to be creeping up. Training camp HAS to be in the next 12 days, because the first exhibition game is in 16 days.

Did I mention the 5 exhibition games in 5 nights from the 17th to 21st? Then two more on the 24 and 26th. I don't know which ones will be televised (hopefully all of them), but we're finally going to get our hockey fix.

Shutdown - the games on the 18th, 20th, 21st and 24th will be televised.

I know it's the exhibition season and that we'll be playing with two squads, but that sked really REALLY sucks.

@Boob, I'll help ya, with pleasure.

I don't think Red is that bad, he's in his eighties for God's sake. He's just old school, that's all. He's still living in the past, the glory years (wait, so am I) and the team has pretty much sucked since 1979. You can't really blame the guy.

Maybe Monsieur Red needs new glasses. I keed, I keed.
