FHF shakes up its lineup: and then there were five (er, three sir!) three

Montreal (AP/CP) - In a move destined to stun the blogging world, today the popular "weblog" Four Habs Fans announced via press release that it had traded away the rights to Habs "Le gros Bill" Fan4 to Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the Kontinental Hockey Legaue. In exchange, the FHF receives the rights to moe "The Rocket" man, the long-time minor leaguer who has finally earned a spot with the big club.

"This is both a sad day and an exciting one," said Habs "TMS" Fan29. "While we are disappointed in having to lose a blogger with the skills of HF4, the grit and work ethic that moeman has brought to the blog over the years deserved to be rewarded. We felt he could bring a lot to the table for the important blogging stretch drive."

moeman has brought his wit and steady presence to the comments for almost the entire run of FHF. Recently, he was offered a guest spot bringing his humourous parodies to the front page. In this role he has excelled, and FHF management felt that as a full time member he would be able to help keep FHF at or near the top of the Habosphere's tough Northeast division.

"I know the fans will be sad to see HF4 go, but you have to give up something to get something," said Mr. Fan29. "I'm sure the great and loyal fans of FHF will come to recognize the importance of this deal for the long-term health of the franchise."

When asked to comment on the shakeup, long-time FHF commentor gillis said "meh."

Ed.'s (well, mine) note - in all seriousness (ha!), it is no joke that HabsFan4 has decided to move on and moeman is stepping up to do his best to fill the void. No one blogs at the same place forever (just ask the MYFO guys) so it's actually pretty impressive the original four of us have stayed together so long. We thank 4 for his years of service and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.

Anyone want to start a pool on when Gomez will get his next point? I will take the second period of Saturday's game against the Canes.

Wow, Moe! You are an inspiration to all young bloggers sitting by the frozen pond with their laptops and snot-covered mittens.

My only concern is that FHF is still a tool of the anglo-establishment! Where are the francophone bloggers? You need to go and get a star like Bertrand P
Raymond.

soperman said...

the "P" was a typo

Habsfan10 said...

@ soperman: Tell 'em the P stands for Pur Laine.

B B said...

I'm not sure how to move beyond this, nothing seems important anymore, I'm at a total loss, I didn't see it coming,...

What's doing for lunch?

moeman said...

@sope

Je suis né au Québec, moved to Ontario, moved back to Québec. Let the pure woolers come after me. Too bad for them they can't denigrate me for being Franco-Ontarian.

bea.habs.fan said...

an official welcome to Moeman.
and several tears for FH4.

(love the Gazette headlines)

as for the lack of francophones ..., I'm one so i coudl try contributing more.
ijsut do nto have the knack for witty repartees (French word, don't you know)

Kmaxx said...

Wow...didn't see that coming...gonna take bit to sink in...

@Moeman - Fuckin' Eh buddy! You made the show! Fitting that your entrance is heralded by one of the nicest set of Mexican Tits I've ever seen. A good omen for the future methinks. (mexican hat dance to GG11 for her awesomeness once again!

Now let's kick some shit out of the B's tonight and it'll really be a day to remember.


wv: gione - as in - when gioneta scores tonight we'll all breathe a sigh of relief

iRiRi said...

Dammit! I knew I shouldn't have sold those shares.

I'm gonna miss those Jaro posts. You too, 4.

Congrats moe!

Great Photoshop, GG!

Oh and GYFHG and all that jazz...

iRiRi said...

STOP THE PRESSES! Big Sexy traded to Colorado. Who's Michael Bournival?

GoldenGirl11 said...

Obyrne traded to khl too! Oh wait, Colorado.

Anonymous said...

so where is hf4 going? writing somewhere else?

Oleg Petrov said...

Bournival - straight outta Shawinigan. Offensive centre putting up great numbers...in the Q.

Good move for O'Byrne. Weber (Swiss Miss 2/Urologist 2 = Uroloswisst) was more likely to be thrown in on a steady basis in case of injury anyway. O'Byrne was rotting on the bench anyway, and this takes him off the cap.

Steve said...

Lets feed the Bruins balls to the Chinese and make medicine balls with them.

Habs 4 Bruins two less.

Squid, Lego, Mex and PFK score.

Smurfs downsize again.

@moemen we will always have the bronze.

Moey said...

Congrats moe!

Don't forget us little people down here in the comments.

Bill 101 said...

@4: We Remember - in english anyway

E said...

Does anyone else find it funny that if we called up this Bournival kid right now he would be our tallest center at 6"?

Chester said...

You know Chocula never gave Rhino a chance. I hope he fares better with the Avs. I always thought he had an upside.

Steve said...

@e - can we call him frenchy, is according to Yahoo Sports only 5-11 and 178 lbs, what the Habs call a power forward, and plays left wing. But it seems to me the Goat has hit a home run.

Chester said...

Big English guy traded for a little French guy ...

Hmmmmm

Le Douze said...

WTF HF4? R U KRZY?

Anyway, please send back a report on the strippers in KHL-land, and do your best to get them conditioned for moving up to the big leagues.

Congrats, moe, and where the fuck is your funny bio?

Is there an archive of the banners?

moeman said...

Thx kidz. Bio and gameday preview up soon.

SkyKing said...

Leafs REALLY Suck!!

Sorry to lose one of your original 4...good luck to you HabsFan4


The Leafs REALLY do Suck!!!

Caduceus said...

Congrats, Moe! Or is it HF9, now?

4, you will be missed.

GYFHG!

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Le12
There are so many banners there isn't enough free space on the Internet to archive them all.

HabsFan4 said...

Thanks to my FHF gang. Thanks to the FHF readers, and thank you to the players for making this extra special and not bringing a 25th cup to Montreal during my tenure.

Most of all, thank you the children.

GoldenGirl11 said...

HE'S ALIVE!!! AHHHHHHH!!! 29!!! you said he was dead!!! There is a god! ב״ה

Rookie said...

Thanks HF9!!

Um, why did Bournival's parents stick an umlaut in "Michael"? That's his new name, is where the fuck does that umlaut come in.

Flying Toaster said...

I have a question though: If HF4 is moving away from the blog, will he still be coming over to comment sometimes? Yes? Please?
