Ladies and gentlemen, it's our 24.39% season evaluations (and a Canes open thread)

7:30 tonight at the Phone Booth, Habs get one chance to win this week before they get crushed by the Caps and Wings this weekend. Gionta is out, Rhino not quite ready. Consider that your preview. Now on to the reason you're all here. Boredom at work.

Yes, it's the one-quarter season player review! Of course, it's not quite one-quarter, more like, oh, I don't know, 24.39% (rounded). We all said we'd give this team 20 games before really evaluating them. Well, those 20 games have come and gone, so it's time to bring on the fucking expletives. We're using our FHF-trademarked scale of zero to 5 Bertrand Raymonds, representing how well the player is living up to the past of nos glorieux. On to the ratings!



Pleks - RIP ZombiePleks? The only player that belongs here. The only player that shows up and scores game in, game out. Leads the team in scoring despite having NO WINGERS. I repeat, NO WINGERS. It's like last year didn't happen. I'm still freaked out by the whole thing.



Squid - just behind Pleks in scoring. Leads the team in goals with 8, but I feel he hasn't really exploded, know what I mean? (Not a sexual euphemism. Or is it?)

Gionta - right there with Pleks in the "show up for every game" department. Just make him captain already.

Métro - 10 points for a supposed 3rd / 4th liner is fucking top notch. Time on the PP, and making the most of it.

Please Hamr don't hurt 'em - in case you hadn't noticed (and you hadn't, which is the sign of a solid D), he's our #1 D now. Putting in major minutes in Vodkov's absence, and playing his heart out. Mostly.



MOEmaN - a pleasant surprise. Maybe slowed down recently, but still working. Unlike some people.

The goalies - I think this seems reasonable. TFS may have had a struggle or two and some bad luck, but overall (especially after facing 55 shots Saturday), he seems alright. Jaro pley weel. All in all, seems like a serviceable tandem.


The M in GMS - six or seven games ago he would have been 3 or even 4 BR's, but lately, ugh. Well not really ugh, more like invisible. Turning into a waste of $8 mill in cap space?

USS Hal Gill - I have no fucking clue what to make of him. Some games he seems like a functional D, other games, well, less so.

The Urologist - got half a BR for a good nickname. Some whacky passes and defensive gaffes have him as the prime candidate for Panger's trunk.

Other 2 BRs - Jaro 2.0 (maybe 2.5 BRs), PatCHes, Gorges


Mad Max - Bertrand's wet dream is a fucking nightmare.

Our boy CHips - Zero points and -8. Yet there was a stretch there when I thought he played well, and might deserve 2 BRs, and was getting screwed with the lineup as usual.

Tits - Oh Andrei, we're rooting for you, we really are. But you're not making it easy.

Other 1 BRs - Dagger, Mara


Gui:( - 'STIE CALICE WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU? Every chance in the world and you have 3 points in 20 games. On pace for a 12.3 point season. Well done.

Incompletes - Markov, Rhino. BGL, Leach, Stewie, Carle, Pyatt, White, Belle, Weber. Is that everyone?

Please disagree with my ratings in the comments. Personally, I trust Panger's hockey analysis more than my own. Either way, which Hab will bump up his BR rating for the half season review? I'm sure a WhalerCanes game will clear it all up.

I think you're underestimating Mara.
he deserves to be higher. at least on par with Gorges (who has been playing well for a small guy - well except for his foray in goal when Price is in).

any time the D is invisible (ie does not get noticed) is agood thing.

Robbie said...

Pretty much bang on 29. Loved the BRwindbag heads, brilliant! My only disagreement is Tits, he needs to be in the same category as Tenderness that fucker is like Kovy without the talent (yes, yes i know he does have some but we certainly have not seen it). The lack of any true leader on this team is so obvious its sick.

My other comment is Coaching, I was not happy about Martin as the choice and i am unfortunately proving myself right. You can't keep switching up lines like your coaching a midget A team. Sometimes i get the feeling he is like the ''Senator'' and can't read or write so just mistakingly fucks up his lines. As for the, ''let me be the prick boss'' and drill you into the ground after games like Nashville and Van that just does not fucking work. Also whats up with all the fucking assistants behind the bench? Fuck it looks like a metro car at 7:30am back there.

In closing you can't get a stone to bleed. I also find it interesting that the lack of production is simply a cut and paste of Carbo's dilema last year. Yet surprisingly with all of uncle Bob's spending the problem still remains. Why is Martin getting a pass? His taking on a new team regardless of its makeup is still his responsibility and currently he isn't taking much.

lawyergirl77 said...

I'm with Bea.
Mara has been a solid defenceman. Have you noticed him? No? Well, that's a GOOD thing for a D-man.

He and Gorges have been playing as well as can be expected of them.

And Gorges deserves a half-BR due to the fact that he was still playing okay, in spite of being saddled with the HMCS (we're in Canada, peeps) Hal Gill.

Speaking of everyone's favourite useless battleship in a nation that is only fighting a "war" in the desert... Why the fuck does he have an A?

Mr. LG77 has a theory that Gomez started disappearing when he realized that there was no chance that he would get an A on his jersey. I don't totally agree, but it's a interesting theory...

lawyergirl77 said...

Oh, and I clearly missed something but what is the commentroversy over at I/O about re: Gui sleeping in or something? I must have missed that one... Did he miss a practice?

And they're reporting that Métro is on the top line tonight. Interesting. Martin is looking more and more like Carbo every day, minus the thermonuclear explosions on the refs when they blow a call.

Boob Gainey said...

Gui was sleeping before the game at 6:30pm when they called his room to tell him he was playing after all.

I don't see what the big deal is.

Moey said...

LG,

The whole Gui thing is nothing short of ridiculous. They've been blabbing about it on the Team 990 since yesterday afternoon. Gui was a healthy scratch for the Preds game when they realized Gionta couldn't play. They called him at his hotel room at 6:30 PM to tell him to come to the arena to get dressed for the game. He was sleeping. So the whole discussion started, why wasn't he at the rink, why were they only skating 20 guys......apparantly the team policy is not to have the scratches show up at the rink until after seven. They don't want them in the dressing room before the game. That's all it is. Cheese and rice, they could make a controversy out of a pimple on someone's arse.

VW - mishes, I mishes Saku.

Robbie said...

@moey, well so far this year this team has amounted to nothing more then a pimple (or an arse) so don't expect anything less from the talking heads.

lawyergirl77 said...

@ Boob and Moey - You're shitting me.

I fucking give up. Even the Anglo media has lost its collective marbles.

moeman said...

@HF29, good ANALysis of our playing-like-ass team.

Wondering if FHFers think Gainey deserves a couple of assfaced BR noggins, or is it too soon in these 20 games to start purewooling him à la Presse de la Rue.

I found another pic of BR .

WV = worea, as in What me worea?

Moey said...

I had to snicker this morning listening to Francois Gagnon on the Team 990. He has some translation issues.

Instead of saying "sharing a room" he said "Gui is sleeping with Maxime Lapierre."

Boob Gainey said...

Tonight's game is game 1 of the Taylor Hall sweepstakes.

HabsFan29 said...

@moeman - heh on the pic. they don't make comedies like that anymore

i left management and coaching out of the review. saving tghem for the 50%.; or maybe the 33%

Habsfan10 said...

Gomez: 2 goals, 9 assists in 20 games. That's a 45 point season. $8 million dollars. The Rangers used that extra $8 million to sign:

Marian Gabork: 13 goals, 12 assists for 25 points in 18 games. That's a 57 goal 53 assist season. Even if he misses his customary 20 games, he's gonna outscore Gomez and Gionta at that pace.

So Gainey screwed up the cap, allowed the Rangers out of cap jail, and now has a lazy, 50 point guy as his number 1, and a midget 50 point guy as his sidekick instead of a game-breaking 50 goal threat and whatever else he could have got with Gionta's $5 million a year. Oh, and he handed off two of our best d-prospects too.

Based on the first 20 games, Gainey gets fucking fired. This chemistry experiment is no better than last year, Markov or no Markov.

Chester said...

OK except for Mara. He is solid D and is mostly the only one who squishes. Sad statement when you got only one guy squishing.

blaz said...

BR's floating head never served a better purpose.

I also feel like I'm one of the few that doesn't highly dislike the M in GMS. If he was on any other team I'd still want to punch his lights out just for that smirk, but I'm genuinely pulling for him.

Robbie said...

Gainey should have been gone last year when he started that shit with the walk in the snow with Kovy. Its funny this year with the french media i don't hear the over the top rabid chants for Martin's head (lets face it folks he is the guy piloting the ship even though he doesn't know what airport to land at). Even Uncle Bobby is getting less then the normal overkill. I'm starting to doubt the true pure laine affection for the Habs...with all that money spent and the results to date you would think they would have called for a general strike in MTL by now.

Its funny too how the patience factor is in place. Its not like Bobby came out at the end of last year and said, ''ok people we fucked up time to clean house and start over, get ready for 3 or 4 more years of heartache'' (maybe throw in the grow some french talent card thing). No what we got was a spending spree a la NY Rangers, Canucks and Senators of old. It kills me that it just seems to carry this year and i have no fucking idea why.

lawyergirl77 said...

Honestly, I was all up on the new team (as many of you know). I'm still pulling for GMS, and I absolutely agree with people when they say that it's an upgrade over Koivu-Kovy-Tangy last year.

But seeing Saku in a Habs jersey last night once again made me incredibly sad. And then angry. 'Cause it now feels as though BG blew up my team and sent one of the classiest guys to put on the jersey since Béliveau away for Sweet. Fuck. All.

And that's the part that gets me the most.
I had forgotten about it until last night.

If somehow, miraculously, this team can turn it around and prove to me that this "experiment" was worth it, then I'll be satisfied (albeit still stinging from the loss of Saku).
But for now?
Consider this shite a failure.
Blow it up and send in the Bulldogs. At least PK is fun to watch.

Robbie said...

@77, you know what the worst part is? How the fans just stood by and let this pass. How the media who claims to know the depths of the team beyond the surface said hardly a peep. It was a disgrace to the team, the city and the fans (the true fans) who understood that while Koivu never brought us a Cup he brought this franchise what it so desperately needed. An attachment to past glory, conduct on and off the ice without reproach and sportsmanship without compromise.

No he wasn't perfect but he is leaps ahead of the yo-yo's skating around with A's on their sweaters this year. Was he still a first liner? No, those days were past him. But had this Team, Ownership and Uncle Bob demonstarted 5% of what Koivu did during his time here they would have found a way to let him play out the balance of his career here. With that i'm sure he would have been content. But then what the fuck do i know i'm a Finn so i'm bias!

Looking forward to seeing the movie.

Sleepy said...

I mostly agree, except Mara. IMO he should have at least 3 BR's. He goes about his business fairly solidly, and except for trying to decapitate TFS he reminds me of Craig Rivet.

Matt D said...

It's true, Mara is a bit Rivet-like. So: can we run Mara out of town at the deadline in exchange for a better D-man and a 1st round pick?

So long as the pick isn't the 2010 version of Max Pack, that'd be sweet.

J.T. said...

I like your ratings, except for Mara and Gorges. Both of them have been working their tails off and (mostly) not screwing up. They've even contributed to the offence, pathetic as it is. I'd give them each 3 BRs, just for doing a credible job at playing over their heads. They also seem to be well-liked by everyone, which isn't a bad thing.

About the Lats thing...the reason people are making such a big deal about it is because the lout has been doing dick-all all season, and he was supposed to be scratched to teach him a lesson. Instead, he took the opportunity to have a nice snooze after he scarfed down the hotel's entire all-you-can-eat chicken wing buffet and got caught napping when the team needed him. You'd think a guy who was interested in proving he's not a big, lazy good-for-nothing would be seen in the pressbox early...not showing up with his fly open and bed head, picking the sleep out of his eyes. Fine for the team to say scratches don't go in the room before the game (which I think is a silly, divisive policy anyway), but Gui had a chance to show he's bothered about being scratched...maybe a little mad, even...and he decided to catch some z's instead. I think that's what has people talking about it.

@10: Gomez has to go, if the team is going to get any better than the glorious squad we're seeing out there now anytime in the next four years.

dwgs said...

What J.T. said regarding Gui LaT. My first reaction was "Who the fuck naps at 6:30 pm?" Unless he's a junkie, then I could understand.
And it is unprofessional, both on Lats' and the teams part, not to be at least half way prepared when they had known for a long time that Gionta was on the limp.

lawyergirl77 said...

I understand the arguments re: professionalism... but the team has far greater problems than having a healthy scratch taking a nap right before a game.

The entire offence basically took a nap DURING the last game.

I'd say that the D were sleeping but I really think that they're playing up to (and in some cases, above) their potential. They just plain suck - nothing to be done about it.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@JT
Napping!! I thought they said crapping. I was going to say give the guy a break but sheesh, napping. Just congers up images of laziness in general. He probably grabbed an oatmeal bar and ran out if the house in his pjs with his naked date whining after him "can I come too???" Oh Gui. Poor, sweet, lazy ass, fucktard Gui.

HabsFan29 said...

whoa whoa everyone, lay off Gui for taking a nap. I'm sure he was just tired from eating and masturbating

J.T. said...

@LG77: Maybe the napping at game time is indicative of the come-day, go-day, God-send-Sunday attitude of a whole bunch of them. Maybe it's even a little window into why nobody seems too worked up about all the losing, generally. Because, in case most of the guys on the team haven't noticed, there's been a LOT of losing.

lawyergirl77 said...

@JT - you're right about the attitude. But I think that they're noticing that they're losing. It's bound to have an impact on the number of chicks they can score (or at least on their hotness) at some point...

GoldenGirl11 said...

I say we throw them a party. A hundred parties! Lots and lots of parties with guests and movies and speeches and dip. Lots and lots of dip. Pehaps they need herring at those parties. It's a real crowd pleaser. Just a thought.

J.T. said...

@LG77: Oh no! Is Gui going to have to nail a "7"?! With her OWN boobs and her real hair colour? Let the madness stop now!

@GG11: Yes, let's all have a party. Maybe the toasts to suckage will be enough to make us forget the actual suckage.

Moey said...

The thing that bugs me about the Gui sleep saga is the sports radio can talk about it for a solid 36 hours and counting.

Moey said...

Aaarrgghh....THAT sports radio. Gotta stop this speed typing and proofing.

Anonymous said...

@29
Long time reader first time writer. Love the rating system. I also love Kelly and the washing machines. Is that because you're airing out the laundry of the team? That makes so much sense. I laughed and laughed.

bea.habs.fan said...

are we throwing them a party to forget with them the sucking or to show then the kind of non-existing pull they'll have with only hot "older" women from FHF who can't be bothered with sucky Habs.
...
got distracted by all that potential muscular ...

what lesson are we teaching them again by throwing a party?

GoldenGirl11 said...

@JT
At this point I don't even care about the hockey. I would feel a certain amount of satisfaction if they cut the celebrating and just focused on what's wrong on the ice other than the scotch.

moeman said...

The kids aren't all right

We'll be fighting in the streets
Some of us with children at our feet
And the morons that we worship will be gone
And Molson men who spur us on
Will sit in judgment of what's wrong
They decide and the Habs fans sings the song

I tipped my hat to Bob's new CHonstitution
Said oh wow for the GMS™ revolution
Smile and grin at the CHange all around me
Pick on Gu:(tar's fucking play
He's still the same as yesterday
I'll get on my lapsed knees and pray
We don't get fou'rred again
Don't get fou'rred again

CHange it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from UFAs that's all
But the team looks just the same
And history ain't CHanged
'Cause the banners, they all flown in the Forum

I tipped my hat to Bob's new CHonstitution
Said hey now for the coaCHing solution
Smile and grin at the CHange on my team
Pick on every Big Tits' play
He's not like yesterday
With Sergei back he would sway
They won't get 4th lined again
Don't get 4th lined again
Non, non!

I won't move my shelf of Habs stuff aside
If we happen to be bereft of a playoff drive
I'll save all my parodies and smile at the sky
For I know Trevor's 1st round Draft picks never die

Do they?

There'll be no parade in the streets?
Wish that it looked different to me!
Hope the groans are all replaced, with OLÉs!
Cuz there'll be partying on the left
And there'll partying on the right
Playoff beards will all grow longer what a sight

I tipped my hat to Bob's new CHonstitution
Now 62 games for some kind of evolution
Smile and grin at the CHange with Vodkov in
Pick on The Urologist's fucking D play
Just like Breezer in his day
In Panger's trunk is where he'll stay
Hope we don't get sCHooled again
Don't get sCHooled again
No, no!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Meet the new Bob
Same as the old Bob

J.T. said...

@GG11: How are they supposed to focus on what's wrong other than the scotch, when there's scotch? There's the problem, right there!

lawyergirl77 said...

I'm with J.T. on this one. Gui won't even notice that he's banging a 7 (or, heaven forbid, a 6) if he has enough Balvenie double wood... mmm... Balvenie...

GoldenGirl11 said...

@bea
I didn't mean that WE should have a party, I meant that the team should keep throwing parties even though we're losing. Sarcasm.

@JT
That's exactly what I was trying to say only you said it a lot better. Tired today.

HabsFan29 said...

@anon - thx. and that's exactly what i meant by the washing machine. very perceptive

@GG - no no, we DO need a party. Balvenie Double Wood on me if we hit 200 comments tonight!

@moeman. OUT FUCKING STANDING. opne of your best. "meet the new Bob" finish killed me. that is one of my staples on guitar (though i play a Pete solo version, I sang the original with your lyrics). my only quibble is that the kidz may not know that Won't Get Fooled Again doesn't have much to do with The Kids are Alright.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
Love that!!! Amazing.

@anon
Exactly. So perceptive. I swear it's like you were in my head when I put that together as per 29's specs.

@29
200 before the third.

moeman said...

@HF29, I'll take your quibble and raise the comment count but despite the much ado, the fitting title came to me after I finished parodying. Bonus is that The Who songs'll make the kidz think the Habs need to be CSI'd.

lawyergirl77 said...

Moe - just had a chance to read your parody in its entirety and I'm still humming along... The Who FTW!!

Moey said...

moeman,

You never disappoint.

Just listening to McSplooge doing his daily dump on the Habs.

lawyergirl77 said...

Moey - why listen to that shite? You know what he's going to say - no point in hearing the same rant ad nauseam, ad infinitum...

HabsFan29 said...

my fave Pete version of Won't get Fooled

moeman said...

@HF29, nice. Also, eel pie! Google it.

Moey said...

@LG,

It's therapy, after dealing with a psycho at work day in and day out I yell all my expletives at McSplooge.

Moey said...

@moeman,

Thought you were sharing a new recipe. Never mind, carry on.

Boob Gainey said...

I kind of like Gomez, but I'd prefer Gaborik.

HabsFan29 said...

@moeman - i do not have to Google Eel Pie, Eel Pie Island, the Eel Pie hotel, or the fact that Pete's companies are named Eel Pie. this stuff ia right in my rock knowledge wheelhouse

moeman said...

@HF29, I figured as much but wanted to lead our fellow and feline Habs fans in a fun direction. Moey almost bit.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@29
My knowledge of jockey is only exceeded by my knowledge of music. I challenge you anytime to a rock off. Back to you Moe for an inappropriate interpretation of that sentence.

moeman said...

@GG11, heh.

For da FHF kidz out there, McSplooging is kinda like getting one's gender-specific rocks off but without the fun.

moeman said...

Also, GG11 typed 'jockey', rocks off worthy typo.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
Just saw that. Tough to type in the car while drive stick...

Take it away, we have to get to 200. I'll make this as easy as I can for you tonight (now you have 2, feel free to split it up).

moeman said...

heh, my middle name is Manuel.

200 here we, rock, off!

dwgs said...

Mmmmm, Balvenie.
Next week could we have some Laphroig please sir? Like sucking on a a wool mitten beside the fire...

lehab said...

@moe...another awesome parody and song. where do you find the time?

@fhf...this blog should have 200 comments easily every day! by far the most entertaining and informative piece of work out there. Cannot start my day without reading this.

@habsfan10...exactly what i was thinking in regards to gainey's fuck-ups

HabsFan29 said...

K leaving class soon. see you after 1

moeman said...

@lehab, no reason but a bit of rhyme to the parodies, jest fun with words. I read this AM that The Who was headlining (E Z GG) the SuperBowl half-time show and went with it (unbeknownst that HF29 could windmill like a MOFO). FWIW, I had originally thought of ripping The English Beat's (cuz there's few Francos on Les Habs) Mirror in Gu:('s Bathroom. I'm here all week.

Moey said...

Go Sucktards!

lehab said...

and that is another great tune

GoldenGirl11 said...

OMG we suck!.. Oh sorry, premature esuckulation.

@Moey, no comment padding.

Also, get your yayas out and it'll be sticky fingers.

Moey said...

Is it just me or does Jean Beliveau look older than last week? Watching this pathetic display is sucking the life out of him. Christ, they could at least make an effort for him.

And with both Carle and Rhino available, why is the Urologist even playing?!

200 seems so far away.

HabsFan29 said...

just got in. I'll assume that when Ronan wrote "Pleks feeds Max with AK46 screening" it was a typo

HabsFan29 said...

@moeman - at this rate, maybe you guys will get a J&B

moeman said...

Ronan could've added NTTIAWWT but it was a sweet sausage slide that found its man.

Jimmy G said...

How many interviews have you seen Lats talking about going to the net? Enough with that fucking wrap around you slow fuck!

moeman said...

@HF29, so long as its not JD. I'd settle for Knob Creek.

HabsFan29 said...

if anyone's channel surfing, head to TSN. they're showing ESPN's 30 for 30 doc on Len Bias. excellent

lehab said...

i'd settle for baby duck

Mateus!

HabsFan29 said...

hey that was a nice czech sausage from Pleks

I don't like Scotch, I'll settle for a Grand Marnier, straight up of course.

tied is good if we get to overtime

Moey said...

@moeman, that's Rye, isn't it?

Nah, Grand Marnier.

HabsFan29 said...

blech

I was fooled, again. Shoot. Me. Now.

@Moey, its good Bourbon.

HabsFan29 said...

maybe i'll go back to class. more fun

kevincrumbs said...

Typical Habs hockey. Look good in the other team's zone, can't cash in on chances and then give up a goal the other way.

Gui actually looks good tonight and we should turn down all PPs in favour of 4 on 4s going forward

GoldenGirl11 said...

Can they all fit in Pangers trunk?

kevincrumbs said...

I must've missed something... is Legace in because Leighton is injured?

Moey said...

@lehab, moeman,

Sorry guys, bit of a mix up. The Habs can have that effect.

For the love of God, Bob has to do something, this totally sucks.

moeman said...

Will McSplooge rip on Aaron Ward for not fighting? Stay tuned kidz.

HabsFan29 said...

DO SOMETHING WITH THIS ONE FOR FUCKS SAKE

GoldenGirl11 said...

I've yawned 200 times does that count? Anyone?

moeman said...

Monkey see, monkey do! We are now over 400 comments. Oh look, a PP, back to yawning...

lehab said...

yawn quietly...you might wake up Gui:(

lawyergirl77 said...

I think I understand Martin's system now.
No hitting.
No rebounding.

Makes sense given all of our "skill".

*hysterical laughter*

+1 to GG11 re: "Can they all fit into Panger's trunk?"

moeman said...

In honour of Max Laps' 200th game we should try to hit 200, non?

GoldenGirl11 said...

Better yet, can I just get into Panger's trunk? It's Calgary, how loud can it be in there? Gotta be quieter than my house and more exciting than watching the game.

Jaysus.

I like to have Habs games on as a distraction from studying, but lately I've been using studying as a distraction from the Habs game.

Where the fuck did the plucky team from a few weeks ago go?

Moey said...

These guys can't beat the worse team in the league.

lehab said...

i think you mean the whalercanes are beating the worst team in the league

moeman said...

@Moey, they beat the leaf, twice.

I'm em-bare-assed I typed dat.

moeman said...

I miss Kovy. There, I said it.

Moey said...

lehab, moeman,

No joke, the leafs will pass us.

Moey said...

And we thought last year sucked...

moeman said...

joel bouchaird, when prompted by benoit, says Gu:( is the only player with enthusiasm (in his eyes) on the benCH. She's wrote kidz, no scotCH for us.

Moey said...

Joel Douchetard.

moeman said...

The CH needs some kinda leadership spark. I suggest we no longer remain Captainless and that Gionta gets the 'C' sewn, soon!

Moey said...

What happened to the "they don't quit" crap? They'll come back in the third. I have no confidence left in this team.

Moey said...

I'm bored, tired and fed up with this shite.

HabsFan29 said...

hey ive been watching V on the pvr. did i miss anything? no? ok then.

@haduff - sorry about that. to my knowledge, nothing's changed. blogger blows, i know

oh look, more booing

lehab said...

a few weeks ago i mentioned all we needed was 2 quality defencemen. WTF was I on? I forgot about the dozen or so goal scorers we could use

HabsFan29 said...

season saved!

HabsFan29 said...

by tits no less

moeman said...

A glimpse of Tit is always nice.

moeman said...

leaf loses, we suck less! Even the Oléers know, fuckers.

lawyergirl77 said...

People are going ape shit in here.

Perspective, people. OT in the cellar bowl. Woo. Hoo.

moeman said...

There's still hope kidz. Shift in shootout gear and burn some fucking rubber.

GoldenGirl11 said...

15 year old just yelled PLEK-A-GOD

HabsFan29 said...

jebus who's left now? metro?

HabsFan29 said...

moeman said...

WOW! that is worth 50 comments!!!

HabsFan29 said...

miracle save

GoldenGirl11 said...

Next after Gui? Gill on crutches?

lehab said...

1993!

HabsFan29 said...

well it's a W, that's something i guess

kevincrumbs said...

I can't believe that it was Max of all people who figured out that they needed to shoot high.

Watching Carey when he's angry is great fun. Can we bury this fucking goaltending "controversy" yet?

boob gainey said...

Nashville beat the Sharks tonight. Seems we're a good team to start a winning streak with.

Number31 said...

I was yelling on twitter "For the love of god Lapierre, SHOOT CORNER" and he did. Huzzah! Epic win if only 'cause Price was fucking epic in that shootout. He just stared the puck down to stop! (Yea, with help from his toe).

Jaybird said...

Price is back. This time it has staying power you can tell he's sick and tired of being the goat and playing like ass. I think I saw the largest smile of all time on AK's face after he scored. Could be his turnaround game also, just feels like a few wins are coming (well maybe not against Washington).

Anyways I know its just the Canes but its a start. I like Patch - Pleks - Tits for a while.

And finally who else thinks Metropolit was by far Gainey's best move?

WV: hangsons

Maybe we can hang sons? Just for a few games anyways.

gillis said...

Why is price so god damn sexy? I mean seriously. fuck

I give price 50 style points for that glove save, and 65 points for the toe save.

gillis said...

From shooter #1 i was yelling at the habs to shoot top cheese on legace, none of them did until Lapierre. Thanks for listening max.

PS. The first line on antichambre tonight was: "Les Canadiens gagne en fusillade trois a deux. Maxim Lapierre est l'hero". STANDBY! REWIND! voice over: Habs got lucky, price stood on his head in shootout while habs couldn't lift the puck.

Then they all jerkin it to the clip of Gui! the Tender Bear's missed wrap around.

kevincrumbs said...

@Jaybird: I agree with your assessment of Price. I feel like he's had an actual sequence of games where he's stood on his head. I also get the sense that he's finally pissed off and channeling that in the correct direction.

I was really happy for AK tonight. I don't think anyone wants to see him do poorly. As much as this team sort of completely sucks, I still think there are decent things to come down the road, as long as we don't spend too much time thinking about the cap.

Last but not least, THE FUCKING CENTENNIAL IS ALMOST OVER. YAY!

chris nilan said...

First i would like to personally thank Jaros agent for lighting a fire under Price via twitter.

second, (save pleks), can the rest of this team WAKE UP? if the never say die team from a couple weeks ago was paired with this goaltending we'd be in a much better spot.
