Hey I'm Kristopher7.
My real name is Kristopher, Montreal born and raised. Go to Cegep and live in the east end of Montreal (currently living near Anjou). Grew up and played hockey during my youth in Rosemont.
Habs fan since I was a baby, born in '84 - 23 years old.
I remember watching the playoffs in 92'93 with my parents, precious memories.
Some of my fav Habs players are Patrick Roy, Kirk Muller, Mathieu Schneider, Patrice Brisebois, John LeClair, Vincent Damphousse. (I really liked the roster from 92-93).
Some of my fav current Habs are Kovalev, Koivu, Hamrlik, Komisarek, Streit, Plekanec, Andrei Kostitsyn and Carey Price.
I love watching Kovalev, he does magic with the puck and his stickhandling. Koivu is a smaller guy but I love watching him work - so much passion, Andrei Kostitsyn is a pro - he's young but he's damn good, Plekanec always looks so serious but I love his style.
As for the men on the blue line, gotta love 'em all. Brisebois is a king (still uses wood sticks!) and love that he was back for 2007-08, Hamrlik is really amazing and such a strong player, Komisarek is a beast and such a great defensive player (why do people assume defensemen have to score 40 goals a season?) he is great at blocking shots, and Streit is a great all around player and has so much potential.
And then there's Carey. I have to admit I was scared myself like most everyone else when Gainey traded Huet but wow man Carey delivers, can't wait to see how he does in the coming season and beyond between the posts.
I also really have faith in the Habs staff; Bob Gainey, Guy Carbonneau, Kirk Muller and Doug Jarvis!
I played hockey since as far back as I can remember, played until mid-high school when I got cut from AAA tryouts for being too aggressive (I played pretty rough defense). So I ended up turning to basketball (since I'm 6'3") and played starting centre for 4 seasons winning many MVPs.
Love the Habs and I visit the website every morning for any news on the team ;P
Hadn't ever noticed the forum section but now that I noticed it I decided to sign up and discuss the greatest hockey team on earth with other Montrealers and Habs enthusiasts
So Hello to you all and here's to a great 2007-08 we just had and a great 2008-09 and beyond!
GO HABS GO!
