Well, REV-G, like Torontohab I'm a (pretty liberal) Roman Catholic with some awareness of theological and scriptural issues. I also do some scholarly writing (not at all on religious matters) which attunes one a little bit to linguistic/etymological questions, such as the origins of turns of phrase. And finally, I like Americana music, which means that Johnny Cash's 'Belshazzar' is not unknown to me. ;) Didn't mean to cause a kerfuffle! Cool that you're a Pastor, though - I didn't realize your Habsworld handle could be taken literally!

 

 

Thanks for the reply CC. Always interesting to hear a little about people's backgrounds and interests. I'm not surprised to hear you are a writer. You can pick up a few clues here and there in your posts.

Freidman talked about the Habs heavily scouting Europe. 

 

Who is worth scouting?

Good article.  If I'm not mistaken the pick the Islanders used on Sundstrom was originally Montreal's pick.  The Wisniewski deal perhaps?

And as we all know beyond any shadow of a doubt, God is the biggest (metaphysical univocity alert!) Habs fan! By a bit of a coincidence, today I came across a brief article about  a priest who helped to found Montreal.  I thought about my ancestor who was a marine of the French king and who came to save Montreal from being wiped out by the Iroquois after Montreal was founded as a religious mission to the new world. Neat stuff. My ancestor.. Nicholas de Boheur probably knew some of the folks I read about who knew Francis de Sales..  Way cool. I'm also wondering if the nuns had a good hockey team with a winning habit and whether they continue to inspire from that great arena in the sky.. :rolleyes:

Wasn't there a suggestion afoot to put MB out to pastor? :wacko:

I'm impressed when people actually know the source of commonly quoted phrases like this.... 

One of my favorite etymological voyages was on the good ship "flabberghasted". I've had my flabber gasted many a time. 

 

Aghast me hearties!

The Hockey News reports that Jason Spezza's name has surfaced in trade rumors lately in their rumor roundup column.  Could be another trade option for the Habs if it's true.  He's got a big cap hit, and hasn't had the greatest season.

When Spezza was in Ottawa, his NTC was every other Canadian team.  He still has a NTC where he submits his teams every year.

My stream crapped out partway through the segment so this isn't a complete report, but Nick Kypreos is reporting that there has been a 'meeting of the minds' between ownership and Bergevin on the direction the Habs are going, with the words "retool, reset, rebuild" being thrown around.

 

Elliotte responded that while he's not privy to specifics of Bergevin's trade talks, Marc hasn't been looking for futures in his current discussions, so this would be a drastic shift in organization philosophy.

Yeah, I noted this in the game thread. Predictably, they zeroed in on Patches as the most likely to be moved, and weren't wrong in noting that a far inferior player - Matt Duchene - commanded a damned nice return.

 

I'm OK with a dismantling because this core is clearly not going to win a frigging thing. What I'm not OK with is empowering the dribbling dumb-ass who mismanaged us into this position in charge of the re-tool/re-boot/re-build or whatever the hell the dummies running this sinking ship want to call it.
