  1. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    Huh. I would have sworn Vesey announced it even earlier than Butcher. Well, glad to hear the few rumblings out there have been positive. Would have loved to have seen Anders Bjork stick around for his senior year - Notre Dame would have even better this year. Though from Montreal's perspective, I'm sure they liked getting to see Evans be "the guy" this year.

    Usually the top seniors like this have given some indication as to if they plan on signing or not, i.e. Vesey several years ago and Butcher last year.
  3. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    I know, but that doesn't have anything to do with whether or not he is planning to sign with Montreal or go to free agency.

    I haven't been able to find much about the likelihood of Jake Evans signing with Montreal or going the free agent route. Anyone hearing anything about which way he is leaning?
  5. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Post all Habs related rumors from other sites (like Eklund) in this thread. Any new threads started based on rumor will be merged with this one.

    Would going to the game next Monday and rooting for the Jackets make me a bad Have fan?

    So glad I'm not the only one who went there!
  8. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    I think ESPN is going to go after the NHL in 2021. Since they bought into the company involved in NHL.tv, they've actually advertised the service all season. Now yesterday they simulcast TSN's trade deadline coverage.

    Hell of an effort by the German men's hockey team. RAISE GOC'S CEILING!

    John Shuster, I lost faith in your ability to win at the highest level years ago. Thank you for sticking with it and not giving up. GOLD BABY!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    Holy crap! US men will be curling for gold!!!!! OOOOOOOHHHHH YEAH! Also great to finally beat the Canadian women in hockey after 20 years!
  12. The D in general in near AHL level, so I don't get not giving him more of a chance. Sure, he's not a young rookie, but still a North American and NHL rookie. Not that I trust us to develop anyone...
  13. I down vote the whole discussion of down voting.
  14. Because our D is so good we can give up on a guy in his first season in North America and get nothing back for him. It's so hard to care about this team.
  15. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    Everything is available live online, but it's just the international video feed and doesn't always have commentary. Hockey, alpine, and figure skating are the only thing the are consistently airing live on TV. Only a couple other events are live each day.
  16. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    I hate NBC's coverage. Even worse live coverage than usual. And if they hold off on showing something in the afternoon, you can be sure they are saving an American medal for primetime. Meaning if they show an event in the afternoon, you can bet an American is not going to medal. Curling coverage is especially bad. They aired the 2nd semi on a 13 hour delay and are showing it again 3 hours after that rather than airing the bronze match live. Gold medal will also be a 13 hour delay, I believe. Have to stream to watch anything in a timely manner.

    And thus begins two weeks of half days of work so I can binge on Olympics! Already another rough start for USA curling, dropping to 1-3 this morning.
  18. Best rivalries in hockey?

    It's got potential, but I don't think it will be a true rivalry till the Jackets beat them in a playoff series. Which hopefully will happen in a few months.
  19. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    For many years I wondered what it was about hockey that drew such a high percentage of lefties to the sport before I finally learned that, haha.
  20. Combat Sports Thread

    So good to see GSP back. Beating Bisping made it even better. His first finish since 2009 made it even better.
  21. Combat Sports Thread

    We have a thread for most everything else, so I figured I'd start this one. I really only starting getting into MMA when Brock Lesnar started fighting. I'd never cared for boxing and had never watched an MMA fight, but I wanted to see how a WWE wrestler would fair with real fighting. Since then, I haven't been able to get enough of it. I love how complex the fights can be, I find it a ton more interesting than boxing. Anyways, finally decided to start the thread because I'm pumped about all the good matchups coming up this spring. I really need to find a good bar to watch these fights at. - Starting off in March, the WEC comes to Columbus with a Bantamweight title fight between Brian Bowles and Dominick Cruz, and also features Joe Benevides vs. former champ Miguel Torres. - Also in March, the UFC debuts on Versus with a solid card including Brandon Vera vs. Jon Jones, Junior Dos Santos vs. Gabriel Gonzaga, Cheick Kongo vs. Paul Buentello, and Anthony Johnson vs. John Howard. That's solid for a free telecast. - Also in March is UFC 111, featuring GSP's title defense against Dan Hardy and the interim heavyweight title fight between Frank Mir and Shane Carwin. - A third UFC even in March will kick off Season 11 of the Ultimate Fighter and is expected to include fights involving Kenny Florian and season 10 winner Roy Nelson. - In April it's UFC 112 featuring Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort for the Middleweight belt and BJ Penn vs. Frankie Edgar for the lightwight belt. - Also in April, Strikeforce will feature Fedor Emilianenko vs. Fabricio Werdum. Hopefully this will be a CBS card and not a Showtime card. - In May, UFC 113 will feature the Lyoto Machida vs. Mauricio Rua title rematch, Rashad Evans vs. Rampage Jackson, and a matchup of Ultimate Fighter 10 contestants, Kimbo Slice vs. Matt Mitrione.
  22. The Habs Need a Better Backup

    Montoya is perfectly adequate backup goalie.

    I definitely like what I've seen from him. I'll be seeing him in person next weekend and am planning on hitting up another game in South Bend this winter.
  24. HW Soccer Fanatics

    Screw Anthony Precourt! Intentionally made poor decisions to hurt the fan base so he could use it as an excuse to move the team. Also disappointed in the Hunt family who let him have an out clause in his agreement to keep the team in Columbus, something he obviously never intended to do. Absolute joke to blame poor attendance and then move the team to Texas, which already has two MLS teams. One team draws worse than Columbus and the other not significantly better. Yeah, that makes sense.
  25. Combat Sports Thread

    Thought it was a hell of an effort by Conor. Heard multiple boxing analysts saying he wouldn't even be able to land a punch and he landed in 10 rounds more Manny could land in 12. I kept hoping that Conor could keep up the pace, but he did and the end was inevitable. I think it was a bit of an early stoppage, but the end was imminent and giving him more time wouldn't have changed anything. Very entertaining and I don't feel ripped off. But the fight did nothing to make me think boxing judging isn't terrible. The official scorecards were ridiculous! At the very minimum, Conor won four rounds and two of the judges only gave him one. And the ref was constantly getting on McGregor for the hammerfists, but never said anything about Floyd turning his back until like the 10th time he did it. The boxing folks weren't taking any chances.
