  1. Since I don't see the rumours thread here anymore, I thought I would start this again, because there will be some. Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet mentioned some extremely interesting information over the last few days as the insider believes Bergevin will try to land Duchene through free agency this summer. Friedman said the Canadiens were in the running for Duchene at the deadline and believes Montreal will be in the running for Duchene on July 1st. Matt Duchene had a great season with 70 points in 73 games and a was a key part of Columbus' great run against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round. The 28-year-old forward will cash in big time on a long term deal and Bergevin has plenty of salary cap room to play with.
  2. I thought since the summer is slow here, I thought I'd resurrect Clues thread from a few years ago. It was fun then and it should be fun for our members new and old(er). Here's how this works: A poster types out 4 things, 1 is a deliberate lie, and the rest are true. The rest of us try to figure out which is the lie. he winner gets to post their 1 lie and 3 truisms. Here's mine: 1, I've been onboard a WW1 Battleship. 2. I've been onboard a WW2 Submarine. 3. I've been onboard a WW2 Aircraft Carrier. 4. I've been onboard a Vietnam war Destroyer. Only one of these is a lie.

  4. ^^^^ All hilarious, 52
  5. Trudeau's nose just got longer.
  6. It's a wonder that Trudeau isn't linked to Jerry Epstein,,,,,, then again, maybe he isn't important enough.
  7. Not too smart.
  8. ^^^^ This girl is a keeper!!!! It happened at a New York Airport. This is hilarious. I wish I had the guts of this girl. An award should go to the United Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo. For all of you out there who have had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you. A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers. Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS." The agent replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks first; and then I'm sure we'll be able to work something out." The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?" Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. "May I have your attention, please?", she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14". With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, "Edited" Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry sir, you'll have to get in line for that, too."
  9. Yup,,,,, buyers remorse.
  10. CYA 'bout time you figured it out.

  13. Canadiens Stanley Cup champion Tom Kurvers was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. He’s decided to run a 10K marathon to raise money for lung cancer research. [
  14. I see tonight that the Yotes played the Kings. Chuckie got 2 goals. He played 17::47, almost 4 mins. of PP time and 1:55 of time shorthanded. .
  15. Ya know, all of us have things that tick us off. This is not a thread for politics (there's another thread for that ) . This is for "other stuff". This for the other stuff that ticks you off in other everyday living. Things like drivers cutting you of, or not signalling ,,, people taking up space in the grocery aisle talking, etc So, my rant of the day (and I have many), more to come about charities. I see a commercial for donating to the "poor, unfortunate people" of (insert country here), often. Tell ya what,,, where are the fathers? Little XXX travels 5-10- or more miles to get water. Ummmm, here's what you do. Move to where the water is. Ya got nothing anyways, what have you got to lose.?
  16. Instead of putting these signings in the Rumours thread, please put them here. Myers signs with Van Duch signs with the Preds Mike Smith signs 1 year with the Oilers Breadman signs with the Rags Zuccarello signs with Minny Laffs sign Spezza Wings sign Calvin Pickard
  17. OK, I stumbled across this quiz and thought it might be fun to see how much Habs history do we know. There are 30 questions and they immediately give you the answer, but try not to cheat. Some are real easy but others sure stumped me. Hint, our older members should do pretty good. I missed out on 12.
  18. From Wikipedia: "As of May 5, 2019, 83 goaltenders and 777 skaters (forwards and defencemen) have appeared in at least one regular-season and/or playoff game with the Montreal Canadiens since the formation of the league in the 1917–18 NHL season."
  19. Hey, I can do that,, NP.
  20. Wrong,,,,,,,, U.S.S. Battleship Texas (Google is your friend), was actually in the 1st World War, as well as the 2nd World war.. It is based in Houston. On edit, there is 1 there is one battleship that is older in Japan, built in 1890's something. Note, it only has 2 gun barrel turrets, 2 turrets on the bow and one on the stern, WW2 Battleships had 3 barrels per turret.
  21. OK, how many players have suited up for the Habs since 1917-18? Remember, no cheating. Give or take 10-20. This ought to be good.
  22. "Quit rowing and start rocking the boat", that's my motto.
