  1. I didn't even think about the bold part above. This is sweet icing on an already very good cake

    And really, it's all on Feaster; he's such an amateur. He should have reconfirmed with Iginla that he was good to go to the Bruins before telling the Bruins anything.

    Feaster's follow-up to the O'Reilly offer sheet (near) debacle. :rolleyes:

  2. Poor Gooins had a bad day,they pick up a guy off waivers who they were all hating on last week, their captain get us the tying goal,they get beaten by a 20 year old rookie in the shootout to give us the game,Then they don't get Iggy when every one said they would.

    I feel for you poor poor Gooins.


    GO HABS GO :lol::lol::lol: + a million

    Calgary told the Bruins they were getting Iggy. The deal was done. The Bruins did win the sweepstakes competition, and let two prospects basically know they were not part of the Bruins' future; that they thought so little of them that they were willing to give them and a first round pick away to rent a 38 year-old for a few months. Not what you want to tell your prospects.... unless they are leaving. (Mulligan!! We take that back! You are guys are great! We want you two to stick around.)

    It was Iginla that refused to go to Boston. ("I'm not going to play for no stinkin' Booins!!")

    I can't tell a lie. Honestly, all that just made my day.

  3. Jay Feaster impresses as decidedly amateur.

    First there was the offer sheet debacle with the Avs' O'Reilly. Now, the Iginla sweepstakes muck-up.

    How in the world did Feaster think the next step after 'liking' the Bruins offer the best was to phone up Boston and tell them they won?!? Isn't the next step Iggy? ("Hey, Jerome, the Bruins have presented us with the best offer for you; the most beneficial for this organization that you have been integral to for so long. Are we all good? You'll go to Boston? If you need to, you can talk to them about it all.")

    I suppose it never occurred to Feaster that Jerome gave him a list of 4 teams expressly so that he'd have some competition going? Leverage to create the best possible deal? That Jerome really just wanted to go to Pitt and play with Crosby again, and maximize his chances of winning the Cup (finally)? Did Iggy have to spell that out to him? Or did Feaster miss Iggy's wink-wink?

    A 10-second phone call to Iggy, but Feaster doesn't bother. He's so excited to phone Chiarelli and tell him he won.


    Calgary is going to rebuild squat with this guy as their GM.

  4. Same with Shaw direct (formerly Star Choice). All habs games are on RDS & CBC Montreal Channel 201.

    And Shaw is $5/mth; Bell, where you have to contract the whole slate of French language channels, $15. Still worth if of course, Best part of RDS is the play-by-play and commentary. It bears both CBC and TSN.

  5. I think Webber is expendable and I don't see Therien changing the line up as long as we keep playing this well. Ithink Kaberle is out so they don;t risk injury and mess up a trade or the opportunity to buy him out. If he is on IR he cannot be bought out.

    Edited for correctness by ........ :P (one's happening; the other not)

  6. Worse when you consider we have a healthy Kaberle in the pressbox. Im not a huge fan of the 7 defensman thing but this team is clearly a "top 9" team (ie we can roll 3 lines very well) so why not dress Kabs & put him out there on the PP & limited 5 on 5?

    Diaz definitely gave us some flexibility back there. At very least lets hope he's ready for the playoffs.

    Ahhh ... the old Weber thing .... part-time 4th line winger, 7th D-man for the PP. I dunno; can't see Therrien going there. He'll wait for Diaz.

  7. From the Globe and Mail:

    Kris Letang’s comeback didn’t last long.

    The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed their star defenceman back on injured reserve with a lower body injury and recalled rookie Simon Despres from the AHL.

    Letang returned from the IR on Tuesday night after missing three games due to the injury. He appeared in some discomfort following his first shift but played more than 24 minutes in a 1-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens

    Further,,,,from TSN:

    The streaking Pittsburgh Penguins could get Evgeni Malkin back soon but could lose Kris Letang again.

    Malkin who was placed on injured reserve Sunday, retroactive to March 10, with an upper body injury, is expected to be back in the lineup soon.

    However, defenceman Kris Letang has suffered a broken toe, and was placed on the injured reserve Wednesday.

    Letang was placed on injured reserve on Monday but activated in time for Tuesday's game against the Montreal Canadiens, prompting the demotion of defenceman Simon Depres.

    With Letang being placed back on injured reserve, Depres has been called back up.

    Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, meanwhile, is battling a sore neck. Details should emerge later on Wednesday whether or not the injury will force him to miss any time.

    Letang: Hmmm .... broken toe. Is that 'new', or was it a broken toe before?

    It looked groin to me before. Maybe it was toe all along.

    A new injury makes more sense to me than the same one ... Pens did not need to be rushing Letang back in the way they were going, and the standings place they were in.

    Fleury -- well, "sore neck" made me think immediately of Reimer (oops, Gionta was around for that one too, wasn't he?). Reimer's was a "sore neck" until it was a multi-week concussion.

    Morrow: I expect he gets better than he showed last night against the Habs (I didn't notice him at all; and he had 0 shots on goal). I understand that's the way he has shown in Dallas this season too.

    Murray: going to Pitt, I'm not concerned overly about. "Big and slow" are the defensemen the Habs forwards are having the most success against.

    Crosby: Huh. That's why he's called the best player in the world. One play, and he wins the game (well, yes, Fleury/Vokoun were great too.)

  8. Exactly, ref don't like getting lip from players. Often when they do, they wait for an opportunity to nail said player. Which is what happened to Subban and use to happen to Laps all the time.

    There are calls you can't control. Sticks will clip players when fighting in the corners or trying to lift an opposing players sticks.

    Leafs don't like taking responsibility, they prefer to blame the refs.

    I was glad, even impressed, to see Subban acknowledge the matter publicly. One of bigger signs of maturity I've seen from the guy, his whole career. He actually said something like "I didn't give myself any help giving the refs lip during the game". He's listening (to Therrien), it appears, and things are registering. And PK has the confidence in his abilities to say things like this about himself publicly. The ego is going (even if just a little). Great to see.

    Subban has just got to keep working on containing his game. He left his post at the blue-line twice in the last 1.5 minutes last night against the Sabres, with Price pulled. The puck exited the Sabre zone both times because of it. He had 4 experienced Hab forwards in front of him. he didn't need to join them to help them with their job. He needed to stay at the point and do his, even though the puck wasn't there yet. The puck was coming.

  9. For those who have not read Lupul's tweet,,,,here it is.

    "Lupul tweeted in response, "If someone can explain the decisions on what warrants a suspension and what doesn't, please let me and the rest of guys know."

    And he is absolutely right.

    And a major difference between the Leafs and "Therrien's Habs".

    Therrien has his players focused on addressing what they can control. Example, Subban taking a penalty in OT against Buffalo. Therrien did not want to hear that Subban's stick missed the guy's helmet. Subban got nailed with a penalty at an inopportune (4 on 3) time and he was take responsibility for it. Ergo, there was no need to go for big reckless hit when the Habs had all the momentum already. Also, mouthing off at the refs during the game doesn't help when a call opportunity like that comes up for the ref who's been listening to you.

    Subban stepped up to the mike after the game and acknowledged such.

    The Leafs and Lupul can spend their time wistfully expressing "why me"? instead of addressing what they can control.

  10. Tonight will be Travis Moen's 600th game in the NHL.

    Hmmmm .. not sure there's that many more left.

    I don't know about others, but it seems his game is going away from him.

    Habs claimed Jeff Halpern off waivers today according to Darren Dreger...great veteran presence

    Welcome back, Jeff.

    Can't say I'd object to this spare wheel, that already 'been here; done that'. Smart-ish move by Bergevins.

    Great job '93!

    Buffalo may be on the way down but I don't have a particularly good feeling about this. I don't think I ever feel good about it when we play Buffalo =/

    Similar here.

    But then, I've seen how this Habs team does not 'repeat' itself on the downs. Not since that 6-0 Leaf pasting; the turning point for this club.

    That Sabres OT loss was a short time ago, in the same building. I'm expecting first period shot attempts to be somethign like 25-5 for the Habs.

  11. They came to Miller's defense. Didn't amount to much. but they went right for him. Also Chara got into it, whatcha gonna do with that big ape on the ice.

    Apparently, the Sabres had a team meeting after the game, and it doesn't sound like it was fun. They got a dressing down by Ruff for not doing something.

    (Big) Tyler Myers was on the ice at the time. He was in the press box next game, just for one game.


    Lucic is like Avery -- while 99% of the players in the NHL have some common sense, these two have absolutely none.

    NHL will continue to be tasked with introducing new regulations to address what everyone else terms common sense, but that these two don't get.

  12. Just got fired.

    JoePa's legacy is destroyed .... minced.

    There'll be a number by his name alright, but it won't be 408 wins, or the number of bowl wins, or the number of seasons coached in Division I. It'll be the number of different child sexual assault victims introduced to Sandusky after Paterno (et al) covered it all up (1998, or more expressly 2002). Some decisions are so important in life, and seemingly so tough, but they gotta be made. It's called moral duty; legally 'moral turpitude'.

    Sandusky's case still has to go to court, but have a read of the grand jury indictment: Sandusky indictment . One can see why the Trustees had to fire Paterno after reading it. I can't imagine McQueery survives 'till Saturday's game even. I expect he'll resign beforehand; there'll be a lot of pressure, including from Paterno's fans ("McQueery's fault for not going to the police himself, and getting Paterno in this boil").

    These guys (no women so far) were all adults. I mean, someone's gotta stand up and say, "I'm not just gonna pass the buck in the circle here; this has got to stop." Well, apparently not at Penn State.

    It's gonna cost PSU millions in lost donors.

  13. Stewardesses is the longest word typed with only the left hand.

    Sorry, for a moment there, I thought you were trying to be crude. Then I looked down at my keyboard, and typed 'stewardesses'. Huh -- all with the fingers of my left hand. Cool!
