You mean me?! I'm from Surrey! Welcome to the family. :) Watch out for kinot-1, though, he bites...

Only if he has his teeth in. :P

Hi,

John from Windsor Ontario.

30yrs old.

It's hard being a Habs fan down here in the Leafs/Red Wings belt, but I have stayed tried and true. I think there is a good team this year. Definitely a lot of speed, and I hope our boys will use it to their advantage. Hoping Kovy and Captain K can get it going. Sammy provides some good depth scoring, and I hope Begin keep working his butt off. Good to met you habsfans, and Maybe I'll see you at a game. I am an opera singer, and got a call about maybe even singing anthems for some Habs home games this year. Fingers crossed!

favourite habs of all time: Carbonneau, Muller

favourite Current Hab: Koivu, Kovalev, Souray

Hi John, i'm new to this forum. I lived in Windsor/St. Clair Beach basically till I was 24(1975). Always hated Leafs(born in Windsor, moved to Dartmouth, NS-where I became a Habs fan-and then back to Windsor)and since Wings did 50 mile radius blackout couldn't like them.

Once went to a game at Olympia when Marcel Dionne played for Wings. The rail on the mezzanine was all HABS banners except one. When HABS came on ice HAB fans stood and cheered and then booed the Wings. It was basically a home game for HABS. I mention this because you are not alone. What I remember most was Robinson pummelling Nick Libbet, a Wing fan telling me HABS wanted to trade Lafleur and Robinson for Dionne(lol) and the final score was HABS 3 Dionne 3.

Been on here for a couple months now and thought I should introduce myself. Jesse, 24 but only for a little over a month as I was born the exact same day as Crosby, hence the 8787. I live as grew up in St. Thomas, ON home of Joe Thornton and just 20mins south of London. Been a Habs fan as long as I can remember, growing up in leafs land has been different but I've always embraced it. I've been playing myself for about 18 years, nothing too competitive, had some opportunities but chose not to do so and kick myself from time to time. I have a couple Habs fans friends but nothing close to what I've found here and it amazing being able to come here and talk hockey without looking like some kind of hockey nerd or something. I have. Ever been more excited about a season and I thank you all for it.

I look forward to discussing and learning from the very knowledgeable members I've found here and heres to a new beginning for the Habs

It seems like you've been here a long time already. I didn't consider you a newbie.

Belated welcome to the forum. Looking forward to your continued input and opinions. ;)

Yeah I'm with you about visiting the site. Usually visit am, afternoon and evening. Really enjoyed how fast things went on Draft Day. It is great to talk with HAB fans. With other people you have to talk their team and most of the time they won't talk your team. Should be give and go but usually isn't.

Welcome to the forums, Jb. We're almost neighbours,,,I live in London (home of Jeff Carter, in fact his parents live about 4 blocks away). This is a great forum with something for everyone. You will fit right in. :) . There always seem to be something going on.

Good point, alot of friends of mine that are considered hockey fans I find don't keep up with hockey or even their teams to a tenth of what people on here do. I find I know twice as much about their teams as they do and the majority are just "recreational fans" especially the amount of bandwagon members of leaf nation around here. If I tried talking the draft for example it'd be news to most that there was a draft this weekend, I'd soon rather not talk about hockey and come on here instead, it's been great

Thanks, I had a feeling you were from around here with your support of the knights in the Mem cup thread. I consider London basically home, I lived there briefly as well and work there. The area has been turning out great hockey players for a long time and the Hunters have turned it into a great junior hockey city. I'd have no doubt we would fair better than alot of cities for an NHL team but that's for another time, either way I would never switch my loyalties but it would be awesome...maybe some day

Welcome Jbaker! Really happy that you like this forum. My story is a little different though..When I joined this forum my hockey IQ was at 1, I knew nothing...(Hey, I was only 10) But ever since I came...I know more than most people where I live(Mississauga, Laff nation). And now I feel like you guys, that I can't talk to people about hockey without looking like a hockey nerd. I should get the award for most improved poster. :D

I've been meaning to do this for a bit but the Draft was way more important. Fit it in before free agent frenzy.

Been a HAB fan since 1960. Just love talking HABS almost to distraction. If I see someone with cap or something, I always say "nice hat' and hope for Hab talk. Collect Hab stuff, but mostly from flea mkts, garage sales & thrift shops. Got the HoF book Honoured Canadiens for 25 cents a few weeks back. Already had two copies but heh, 25 cents. Give them to others. Hab fans of course.

Live between Brent Gilchrist's town, Vernon, BC and Josh Gorges' town, Kelowna, BC.

I would like to thank Habs1952, BigTed3, Kinot-1, BHFE123 and others who have helped me in my struggles to get forum literate. These forums are so friendly, informative, organized and well run. To whoever deserves credit GOOD JOB!!!!

I would like to thank a person named James who I went to school with in grades 4 & 5. I had moved from NS(to Windsor, Ont) and was a Habs fan because my big brother was. When I met James at A. Mason Elementary he showed me a whole new level of being a fan. He was so smart that he won a book award and naturally selected a book on the Rocket. James if you are out there, hi & thanks. Who knows maybe my mind might have been corrupted and I might have been a Wing or Leaf fan. I wouldn't be surprised if 123 was his grandson.

Enough for now. You're a great crew!!!

Evening all,

Big Habs fan from Edinburgh, Scotland here (although I actually live in London, England). Been a fan since the 1993 Stanley Cup final win - it was the first time I'd seen NHL hockey televised in the UK and Montreal happened to wear the same colours as my now defunct local side, the Murrayfield Racers.

Try and watch most of the games on Game Centre Live - it certainly helps living close to work as it means I can get 6 hours kip in before I saunter in. I've also been over to watch a few games in the 2007/08 season - it was magic to experience the Bell Centre for real.

Anyway, I'm rambling on.

Cheers,

David

Welcome to our family, Greny12. Have a look around and if you have any problems, ask them in the Questions, Comments, and Concerns thread. We're a helpful bunch. :) . Hope to read your posts soon.

Cheers,

Not sure how much I'll post, mainly because I spend far too much time on my football team's forum and I know how it can take over your life! :ph34r:

Welcome to Hab's forum, always B) B) B) B) to hear from Hab fans from around the world. Since your football team is defunct, who is your team?

My grandparents were from Scotland and the Rangers was my grandfathers team, so that is my team. Actually saw them in 1972 in Barcelona defeating Moscow Dynamo for Cup Winners Cup. Rangers banned from international play for 2 years for fans behaviour.
