  1. Don't get me wrong, I'm a Habs fan first and foremost! But living in Ottawa I have to say I do cheer for the Sens (when they aren't playing the Habs) and I have to admit what I'm seeing tonight is a disgrace! How many times must Heatley flop on the ice to try and draw a penalty? Markov barely touched him and he did a super dramatic spin to the ice to get the call. I understand the team is laying bricks right now, but this isn't the way you want to start winning.... I hope Colin Campbell takes a look at some of this video.
  2. Something happen in the QMJHL last year maybe? http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=183441&hubname=
  3. Anyone hear anything on their status after last night's injuries?
  4. Well, I will be at the game on Saturday! I'm so pumped! It's gonna be great!
  5. Now that was a refreshing post! I agree completely! Even though we lost, we were able to keep up with what everyone's calling the fastest team in the NHL. That will probably be one of the best games we see all year. End to end action, non stop speed, back and forth hockey. There's alot of teams in the league that won't be able to handle our speed. I hope we prove that tonight against the slow leafs defense.
  6. I don't know about you, but I'm willing to give him a little more than 1 game before I start criticizing. We got him after the pre-season was over, and hell, he probably had the chance to take part in 2 practices maybe?
  7. I think their biggest problem with the Habs is the fact that they are a very small team. They must have repeated themselves like a dozen times.
  8. If anyone on here is in the Ottawa region, you can see the game on channel 22, the local Rogers station. Back to the game!
  9. Not really sure what thread to post this in, so here's as good aplace as any I guess. After watching last night's game I was really impressed with Johnson! Now I don't know if it was because he was one of the only guys who looked like he was giving 100%, but he's starting to look like a very good acquisision. Should make the 3rd line very interesting to watch. Hell, who knows, maybe he can start playing centre on our second line.
  10. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=178047&hubname= *sigh* And you though TSN was Leaf biased before? Can't wait to hear his "expert" analysis...
  11. Well, I did manage to get 4 seats in Sec 305 for the home opener!! I'm so pumped!!
  12. Anyone else online right now waiting to buy tickets?
  13. I was just watching Off The Record on TSN and they has Alexander Ovechkin as the guest. In his "next question" segment, Landsberg asks him who he feels is the best russian player currently in the NHL. His answer: Andrei Markov. I just thought this was interesting ans would pass along.
  14. Well, I might as well add to the "Sudbury" option! Actually, to be specific, it's Chelmsford . I've been living in Ottawa for the past 2 years now though. Which isn't bad cause I'm only a few hours from the Bell Centre now
  15. That's the good attitude to have. Let's support him and hopefully he'll work hard to give us one hell of a year. It can happen.... right?
  16. I think you missed the sarcasm in his post...
  17. In all honestly, the Habs don't have anything to worry regarding the CBA cap. As far as the CBA cap is concerned, they could afford to pay Arnott, or any other UFA 5 mil a year. The decision lies with George Gillette and how much he is willing to pay for the players. I'm sure he's gone up to Gainey and gave him a "cap" on how much he's willing to pay in salaries. I would love to know how many owners in the league have given the go ahead to their GMs to spend the full 44 million.
  18. And now there are reports that Luongo will be signing for close to 7mil per season with Vancouver. Sure he's good, but if Huet plays up to his potential the next few season, at 2.75mil he'll look like a complete steal.
  19. I don't really have a problem with this scenario at all. If you think of the amount of extra games we could have won last year had Huet been in net all year, we could probably have finished 2 or 3 spots higher in the conference, maybe even more.
  20. I tend to like this. Bonk hs been playing better. And let's face it, with Saku out, we'll need Bonk on the ice alot more to win some face-offs. Not to mention that Zhog-Plek-Zed have been working hard all series and it would be a shame to split them up.
  21. LOL! "the holy grail"? Sheldon may want to thing about hiring you to be his publicist.
  22. 30+ pages?!? We might have to go into quadruple overtime for that
  23. I've been at both, and let me tell you, you're in for a treat. Corel/Scotiabank Centre is nothing compared to the Bell Centre. Enjoy the game, I wish I could be there too!
  24. I don't know where he got his info, or if this was a typo, but Jacques Demers says Sheldon injured his wrist last night. "Il sera intéressant d’avoir des nouvelles de Sheldon Souray, qui a quitté en première période blessé au poignet. Sheldon est tellement important pour cette équipe. On a vu que son absence a créé un vide, mais chapeau aux cinq autres défenseurs." http://www.rds.ca/canadien/chroniques/202952.html
