THE NEWEST CAPTAIN

Last nights game was mediocre to begin, finished OK. Price was great, monkey off back, blah blah blah…I have nothing to add over what has been said, and I I have more important things to talk about this morning in any case.

Yesterday I logged in to the Official Montreal Canadiens Fan Forum and found a message from the moderators. I realised that the dream is over…the moderating team has finally caught on to me and I’m being banned.

As I read through the official message in official language waiting for the impending “we regretfully inform you that you have been banned”. To my surprise it never came. Instead I realised that the moderating team was offering me a “C” on my jersey. After a short description of what had earned me the privilege to sport the “C” and a short description of the role of a user with a captain title should do around here, I thought to my self if they were talking to the right guy. Did they really want this yapping, hallucinating, satirical, Maple Leaf hating guy to sport such a unique and honourable title? And thus I reverted to one of my golden rules: Never point out someone’s mistake if it benefits you.

As you can tell by my title under the avatar, I have humbly accepted my role as a Captain in these waters (I won’t step on your toes Admiral ;)). As such, I wanted to begin my official “role modelling” with a bang. And as you can tell by the fact that I’m stalling I have no idea what to do and how to do it.

I figure one of the roles of a captain in a locker room is to keep team moral up. Short of Fed-Exing all users 24s (all those over 16 of course) I figured the next best thing would be to share my years of wisdom on how to remain happy and positive, no matter what life and the HABS throw at you.

The tools and techniques used by modern man emulate what we’ve been doing for thousands of year. When you’re down there are many things one can do. Whether it’s the bottle, your local official Pharmacist, your local unofficial pharmacist, playing a bongo in the nude or exercising, it’s simply a matter f finding what works for you. I personally don’t discriminate and have indulged in all of the above at one time or another….well maybe with the exception of one. I’ve never been too big of a fan of exercising, unless we’re talking about working on the Canadian one-pack.

However I would be lying if I said either of those was my main source of positive energy. I have found and located my holy grail and made sure to keep it near me for a long long time. I figure as a captain I would be holding back if I didn’t share this secret weapon with the rest of you. So the next time the HABS loose to the Leafs (god forbid) or we go on a loosing streak, remember there are greater things in life:

Congratulations on the "C", Cap'n (Admiral beats Cap'n in the gold braid stakes, but the Cap'n runs the ship).

And my dreams have finally come true in picture perfect form...

...

The right teams are in the top 8 and the others (southerners and detritus) are in the bottom eight. :P

But I think your positive motivation looks lovely, too. :D

Here's a Leaf fan who flunked math....but i like his way of thinking. :lol:

"""If the Leafs lose tonight, they'll be 5 regulation losses away from mathematical elimination."""

24 games remaining = possible 48 points and they're currently 8 points from a playoff spot.

Must have gone to the same school as Belak. "20-30 goals and about 40-50 assists for 100 points" :lo:

CUE THE DOUBLE MINT TWINS

Anyone else remember the twins? Am I the only one who began to buy truck loads of Double-Mint Gum when that advertising campaign was launched? I suppose I’m the only sucker who bought something because a pretty girl sold it to me.

The upcoming weekend can be a great momentum builder to get back on the horse and charge towards the post-season and (dare I say) challenge once more for the top seat. Conversely it can be disastrous if we come out with adverse results.

The Flyers are weak, injured and on one heck of a loosing streak. The HABS are full of young blood and depth that can keep legs moving even in the third periode on Sunday following the home and home in 24 hours. Everything seems to be on our side so logic would dictate that we come out with four points following the weekend.

However, we’ve all heard this song and dance (too recently with Toronto and Tampa) and when it seems too easy we drop the ball. Unfortunately recent history would suggest that we’re more likely to come out with one or no points than we are to dominate.

Personally I believe that we will come out will full marks for the following two reasons. First off we’ve lost four of our last six games, two of which were against the two worse teams in the East. Furthermore, one of our wins (against a lower tier team in the East) didn’t come until a lucky penalty call in overtime. This level of underperformance is due to light a fire in the belly of the beast, and keep the boys focused on the task at hand.

Furthermore, the Briere dossier is still in the minds and hearts of locker room. No one likes to be called losers. By publicly stating that last years last place team has a better chance at the cup than the HABS is an indirect claim that the Montreal Canadiens are exactly that: losers. I’m almost certain there is more than a few in the locker room who will be extra motivated against Briere for the rest of their careers. As far as this year is concerned, the whole locker room should be more than hungry to hand the diving pansy a loss every time we hit the ice.

There is too much motivation there not to win it. HLD calls ¾ points a minimum lock, but am leaning towards and hoping for the whole four.
