  1. No. It's the nuts in his pocket. You know, the nuts that Phil always has in his cheeks? Seriously, he's related to squirrels, right?
  2. Categorize in the "Scary" rumours: Emelin, Bournival, pick for Thornton. NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooo...................______
  3. There was talk somewhere (can't remember where) that Petry could remain longer-term if the Habs could manage to trade Gilbert. He's stated an interest in checking the market, but that doesn't mean his mind will change since he's no longer playing for an AHL team. Time will tell there.
  4. Doesn't matter. If they play their game rather than dropping to their opponents level, Montreal moves to round two. Period. Thank gawd Buffalo can't make it.
  5. TVA reporting now that Bournival no longer in Habs long-term plans. Between the lines that tells me he could be gone today. Again, just reporting rumours. This isn't me.
  6. New rumours focussed on Eberle and Simmonds - linked to Flynn's acquisition making perhaps Eller redundant. Also Parenteau has popped up a lot. Seems pretty clear, to me at least, that MB is working hard to bring in a top-6 forward.
  7. Apparently as late as possible today (cap reasons) the Habs will consummate a deal for Wayne Simmonds (McCarron +young D) Just a twitter rumour, though. And IMO, that's too high a price especially when you consider the rumours that Tonordi is in play today.
  8. Last night the price of players this year was so ridiculously high, I figured MB would stand pat. No, he went and somehow convinced the Oil to part with Petry for, what seems like today, a drastic discount price. Wow.
  9. And yet... didn't the same scandal tear apart Montreal long ago? I agree - dicey rumour. However.....
  10. Habs lose 5-1 because they can't beat teams who suck.
  11. Patrick Kane's girlfriend and Duncan Keith's wife. It's a Twitter rumour (so take what you will of that), and directly after hearing it TSN starts talking about Sharp being on the block where previously the vast majority of people were saying there was no way he'd be dealt. Again, take it or leave it; the interesting point to me is that he's mentioned by TSN as potentially being on the block after this news was tweeted. I suspect it's all bunk, but it's a rumour nonetheless. As Habs fans we should all be aware of this kind of thing happening. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/blackhawks-divided-over-locker-room-fight--personal-issues--reports-195228660.html
  12. Apparently - and take this with a grain of salt - one Mr Patrick Sharp has been sleeping around with teammates wives and girlfriends... including that of one Mr Kane. Which is the reason he's being shopped despite the latter going down with significant injury. Which I find most amusing.
  13. I think I read somewhere that LA will potentially be tight to the cap and a guy like Tiffoli may be troublesome to resign. Now, I don't even know if he's RFA this coming year, but there you have it.
  14. Now that he's out of TO, I'd like to see him get to 30/season regularly.
  15. Is it possible the McCarron for Michalek offer had nothing to do with the one in Arizona but was perhaps for the one in Ottawa?
  16. Go back and watch the replay of DLR's first goal. Watch the camera that follows Eller after the goal. The one where Eller turns away with an almost disgusted look on his face - while the rest of the team goes bananas for DLR (which was pretty awesome to see). Eller had been demoted to the third line after starting on the second line. There are countless rumours about him leaving town. Therrien obviously has little confidence in him - and Eller has very little confidence in himself. Honestly, it looked the reaction of a player who perhaps resents the person who scored and who has usurped his place, and possibly the reaction of a player who may very well know he's in his last days in Montreal. I know, I know, complete speculation. However...
  17. Reports (laughable IMO) that Montreal offered a 1st rounder and McCarron for Michalek. I could see that more for Yandle, but not Michalek.
  18. I'll be honest here, moving McCarron makes me squeamish at this point. Big guys take longer, and he's a big big guy. I'd be very hesitant to move him until he's been in the AHL for a year at least. As for Yakupov, I think he could be a good fit, but I don't see us able to pay the price without doing what Bergevin has said himself he's reluctant to do - deplete his coffers - and yes, I know Yak is young enough to make that kind of call with less impact because of his age. From the other side of the equation, I'm not pulling the trigger on that trade as the Oil unless there's a high quality defensive player involved (or a goalie). Perhaps Tinordi with Eller and something else. Maybe Fucale. Pateryn, though is 24 and, let's be honest, could be very close to his ceiling. A reasonable 3rd pairing fellow (yes, I know he can still mature into something more, but watching him play has me feeling pretty solid about this being near his ceiling).
  19. Interesting. Please elaborate on why you don't think you need to elaborate.
  20. Overtime? Overtime? Bad example. Habs wrapped this up in the second and the final was 9-2. Gonchar plays 10 minutes of the third to rest our horses for the next game.
  21. That's no terrorist tunnel dug in Toronto. Just a hiding place for the Leafs.
  22. Smith did step it up in the playoffs last year. 5 goals. Had to count for something with MB - a playoff performer, more grit when it's needed most.
