  1. These refs sure suck. Blatent interference and no call, yet they were sticklers earlier....
  2. the Habs have been terrible 5-3 all season. With the amount of talent down low (Koivu, Ribs, Ryder, Kovalev), why they waste most of the time passing it back and forth between the D is beyond me. Worse, the D are so close together that one guy successfully covers them both....
  3. while they are stitching up the ref, perhaps they can fix him with some new glasses too...
  4. And another penalty taken in the offensive zone.... Not sure how Gainey fixes that, but he has to do something. This team takes so many dumb penalties...
  5. Wow, Zed is actually skating tonight... The real reason for that goal is that he put both hands on his stick for a change, hence the great backhand shot to Mr. Finish. (wow, never thought I would be calling Bulis that)
  6. Another offensive zone penalty. come on guys, show some discipline. Huet is going to have to be sharp tonight....
  7. Koivu takes another bad penalty...what is wrong with him...stupid hook again...
  8. The biggest worry I have about this signing is that it indicates to me that Gainey thinks Koivu is our number one center for the next three years. Hence he doesn't plan to get a better center then Koivu. I just don't get it. He is getting less then a point a game, but even if he did get a point a game his max is about 80 points. Factor in injuries and he typically gets 60. He looks like he is slowing down as well. My concern is that he is not a top ten first line center now, and i don't see why he would suddenly become one at his age. Too much for too long if you ask me.
  9. I am dissappointed as that is first center money. I just don't see Koivu being our number one center if this team is going to become a cup contender. I could see him as a key member of the team and a number two center, but our hands will be tied. If Koivu wanted that much money I would have let him go and signed a better number one center as a free agent. Worse, he got a no trade clause. In other words we just tied up about 10 percent of the team's salary for a guy who will probably average less then 60 points a season. If you are dissapointed in Theo's salary and how it handicaps the team, wait a year and see what you think if Koivu's decline continues. I hope I am wrong about him. Maybe he will get better, but I doubt it. He is a small, frisky center with pretty good skills, but has never really broken out of that average "number one center" level. Saku is going to have to play much better then he has this year to warrent that contract, imo. People complain about ribs who makes peanuts compared with Saku and is only a few points behind.... Ah well, i wish the best for Koivu, but from a team perspective i think this was a mistake that will ensure we stay at the level we are now for another few years.
  10. Propecia does not mask any steriod, it masks a particular steroid. That steroid is used to add bulk and does not help reflexes, etc. I think the doctor said it best... He sees Theo undressed and trust him, Theo is not on steroids.
  11. Damn I love that line of Ribs and Kovalev. I just saw how to make it better.... Markov at the point. Damn that was nice work by everyone on that goal.
  12. crap All we had to do was win one faceoff and they put out Koivu, the guy who is puking
  13. Yeah. I think he and Ribs make a good pair. Ribs is a great passer and is always looking to pass. It leaves no doubt in Kovalev's mind that he is the shooter. Would love to see a line of Ribs, Ryder and Kovalev....
  14. Well, he is not helping the team, just wasting ice time. Hopefully they keep his time down so he doesn't end up costing us from being too tired. Flu sucks. Wow, great hustle by Bulis... damn that boy can skate.
  15. I think Koivu is sick.. he looks it anyway, he is just not sharp. He seems to be fighting the puck a lot.
  16. Rofl.. did I call it or what..... Sweet... and it was bonk!
  17. See, pleks did less and gets a penalty..... bah... Time for SH goal.
  18. come on refs...Komi was clearly hooked from behind.. he goes down, the buffalo player gets the puck and a great scoring chance. If Koivu made that move he would be in the box.
  19. Nice play Ribs, real nice shot Kovalev... all tied up.
  20. I have seen numerous opportunities for penalties to be called against Buffalo, but once again the calls only seem to go one way. The call on Boullion was bogus, and it even looked like he was tripped on the way in to get in that situation. sigh
  21. There you go. total rip off if you ask me. the one that gets me is the Koivu penalty. Marginal at best and after a game where I saw him hooked twice, his stick held, and then interfered with.. .all with no calls. Well, at least we got a point, but I hope the habs win the next one and get some sweet revenge.
  22. We lose in overtime..... on a two man advantage... You read it here first.
  23. Funny, I see goals like that count all the time..... well, when the leafs put it in. Let me guess, he made a 'standing up straight motion"....
  24. The one I was refering to was the shot that ribs screened. But in general i agree with you. Woot.. nice goal Kovalev!!!!!!!1
  25. Well Ribs was parked right in front on his shift. I wish Ryder would, but he always stays to the side waiting to shoot. We need a big guy in front. The goalie can look over Koivu and right through Ribs.
