  1. Official HW Beer Thread

    In my fridge right now, on top of my head. 1x Great Lakes Brewery - Octopus Wants to Fight IPA 1x Collective Arts Brewing - Rhyme & Reason 1x Collective Arts Brewing - Prophets & Nomads 1x Flying Monkeys - Juicy Ass IPA (was in Hawkesbury 2 weekends ago, bought some at LCBO) Next ones are from Québec breweries 4x Dieu du Ciel - Solstice d'été Framboise (Raspberry sour beer, classic from Dieu du Ciel) 1x Dieu du Ciel - Symbiose #8 (An awesome blend of Solstice d'été and a beer called Dernière Volonté Brett, with Brettanomyces yeast) 1x 750ml Dunham - La Quench du Soif (Collaboration with Twin Sails Brewing, American IPA) 1x 750ml Dunham - Jane Doe #6 (blend of barrel-aged fruited beer) 1x 750ml Trou du Diable - La Bretteuse (Zinfandel and Pinot noir barrel-aged IPA with brettanomyces yeast) 1x 500ml Bièrerie Shelton - Shelton NEIPA (not really a New England IPA IMHO. Tropical fruits aromas) 1x 600ml Le Castor - Abricot (blend of barrel-aged beer (70%) and young sour beer (30%). The blend was then aged on organic dried apricots for several months with Brettanomyces yeasts) 1x 600ml Le Castor - Kleine Weisse (Berliner Weisse. Acidified with Lactobacillus and fermented with Saccharomyces & Brettanomyces) Now, the real good stuff. 2 weeks ago, Myself and 5 friends all registered for a draw. The famous Belgian brewery Cantillon is importing beers in Québec. This is only 6 packs of 750ml beers. Among our group of 6, 3 of us have been selected and will have the opportunity to buy a 6 pack and split them all. We got Cuvée Fou'Foune, Rosée de Gambrinus and Vigneronne. Can't wait for this shit to arrive in Montréal. Oh, and I still have 2 cans of Labbatt 50 that I brought back from our golf tournament a few weeks ago.

    So Duclair is not good. Athanasiou is not good. How many top 6 players do you count around the league Brian ? 80 ? 90 ?

    Holy cow !!! What an evolution between 2007 and 2017. None of the beers I listed in 2007 would even come close to my top 100 now. Bleue and Molson is just disgusting to me nowadays. Even if I still buy some McAuslan Griffon and St-Ambroise, I realize that within the last 5 years or so, I turned into a beer geek. Molson and Labatt have been replaced by Dieu du Ciel, Trou du Diable, Dunham, Vox Populi, le Castor, etc. In 2010, looks like I was spending 800$ to 1000$ a year in beer. No joke, right now, in my fridge, there is over 150$ to 200$ of beer. I clearly bought for more than 1000$ of beer between May and August alone. At least, my salary is now closer to 65k than the 26k I was making in 2007
  4. HW Tennis Fanatics

    It was EPIC. Shapovalov was playing like a top 20 player, period. Nadal did not choke at all. He played great. Many good shots along the lines, not so many mistakes. Shapovalov was just unreal.
  5. 2017-18 Line-up

    I'm with you on this one. Pax - Gachenyuk - Hemsky Lehkonen - Drouin - Gallagher Danault - Plekanek - Byron Hudon - McCarron or Mitchell - Shaw Martinsen/McCarron or Mitchell/DLR I don't want Danault in the top 6. Having him with Pleks and Byron gives us one of the best shutdown line in the entire league, IMO. At least at home.

    I think you're mixing up Hemsky and Jagr...
  7. 2017 HW NFL Pool

    Since I joined in 2014, I finished 5th, 3rd and 4th. Gotta take the next step...
  8. 2017 HW NFL Pool

    I see.
  9. 2017 HW NFL Pool

    Was I part of this last year ?
  10. Habs Facebook feed announced that he was not coming back a few minutes ago. Great Habs throughout his carreer. Tied for 2nd in the History for points and 3rd for goals scored. 10 games short from 1000gp. All the best Andrei.

    'I'm staying at Barcelona' - Neymar, July 19th.
  12. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    Molson are moving their factory. They've been in the same historic building for 231 years now and it was announced early July that they chose to move to a new location instead of investing money in the actual building. Now, I'm not sure that both budgets are related though.
  13. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Yeah. Year after year, we were developping great players and trading them away because we couldn't pay them. The support dropped quickly. At the end, they were lucky to get 7000 fans to the games. And that was one of the reason why we couldn't pay them. A game at the Olympic Stadium is boring compared to a game in an outside park like Fenway. The location is indeed a bit shitty. Not tourist friendly to begin with.

    I would give a shot at : Pax - Gachenyuk - Hemsky Lehkonen - Drouin - Gallagher Danault - Plekanek - Byron Hudon - McCarron/Mitchell - Shaw Martinsen/McCarron/Mitchell/DLR
  18. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    Well, let's say 15th to 20th... We're not beating all of the middle section teams for sure.
  19. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    Commandant's post was more about how many top pair dmen whe have rather than how many top pair LD we have. Having 1 top pair, 2 second pair and 4-5 third pair dmen doesn't make our defense average. i would rank our defence between 18th and 22nd in the league, personally.
  20. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    Do you guys believe that Markov is quietly retiring or is signing elsewhere ?
  21. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    Anyway, after that, I'm not sure if I really wanted him back. https://www.facebook.com/CompleteHockeyNews/videos/1289050797888447/
  22. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    My point is not about puck moving dmen or positions at all, it's about how Team Canada is a terrible example to compare player's worth to a team. Teams like Slovakia or Czech Republic are much more built like real NHL teams.
  23. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Personally, I would not use players' value to Team Canada in order to compare them. It doesn't represent NHL teams at all. For example, Team Canada is build in a way that it doesn't require you to dress that many puck moving dmen as pretty much 75% of forwards are good/awesome/stupid good at it. Same with the usage of Subban. Doesn't reaaaaally need him when every pair already include a puck moving dmen. Put Subban on USA's roster and see if they keep Erik Johnson or Matt Niskanen.
  24. Habs sign Mark Streit, 1 year, $700,000

    Were they doing this with or without Markov or does it mean that Markov is not coming back now ?
  25. This. Also, I'd like to add something as a season ticket owner. The box we receive is not only 82 regular size paper tickets like they print for music shows on Admission or TicketMaster. They are huge, with elaborated pictures of hockey players/legends (you've seen those). It also includes paper tickets for all playoffs games even though they're not garanteed. AND, it's all wrapped up in a plastic box the size of a World Atlas. To be honest, I really think that all this stuff is worth close to 150$ alone. Now, if they were to charge 150$ for 82 regular size white paper tickets, I'd be against it as well.
