  1. Anyone out there remember Allan Bester...What a Jabroni!! God, the Laffs sucked in the 80's...
  2. I have this feeling Montreal is gonna squash Ottawa tonite. Montreal is due to breakout, and Ottawa is gonna let down, plus Emery is due to choke... Fearless prediction... Montreal 6 Ottawa 1 :hlogo: Anyone else agree??
  3. The "Maple Leafs fans rejoice" was a sarcastic comment. I just wanted everyone to know that Montreal will infact be the team which brings the cup back to Canada...(to the dismay of leaf fans everywhere..) I know that this might just be a response to an unimportant email sent by a fan towards some reporter, but the thing that intruiges me is that amongst all the teams he could have mentioned during that split second he had to determine which would be the team that would face Ottawa in the Conference Finals, he chose Montreal. Does that sound right to the rest of you? I'd love to hear your input.
  4. As avid Habs fans, I'm sure that all of you, just like myself, love scavenging through the net to find interesting tidbits about our favorite team. I came across this interesting bit while reading John Buccigross's "Mother of all Mailbags" this morning. "Bucci, Can I get your opinion on the Red Wings? I think they are the most overrated team in hockey right now. They are simply the beneficiaries of a lopsided, easy early schedule. You heard it here first. They will make the playoffs because they are in such a weak division, but they will likely be out in the first round. Ottawa is clearly the best team in the NHL right now. Jeff Hall Boston I saw the Red Wings play in person in Columbus and I came away very impressed. They looked like the Minnesota Wild from the spring of 2003. Skating, surrounding the puck carrier and difficult to tell one line from the next. Also, their two best players, Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk, played hard every shift. This backbone of character will carry them a long way. I agree they are not as lethal as Ottawa, but they are in the ballpark. Ottawa is the best, but I still have goaltender concerns. The Senators may be so good that my girlfriend Kelly Monaco could play net, but is Hasek still Hasek come May? What if his groin explodes? Will Ray Emory play well in a Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals against Montreal?" This shows that Montreal is starting to turns some serious heads amongst knowledgeble hockey people. Can't you just feel it!! Maple Leafs fans rejoice! The cup is cometh back to Canada.... Helmethead...
  5. If I'm not mistaken, we lost to New Jersey in Round 2 1998 playoffs. (Series was 4-1 for New Jersey), our only win coming from Theodore's inaugural palyoff game in Game 4. That night he gave everyone a peek into what a great goalie he was going to be.
  6. If you guys think that you are deprived as Habs fans living in Holland or Austarlia you should come to Greece to see what it is really like. I've become an internet junkie, dependant on TSN, RDS, ESPN, CNNSI, Sporting News, Sportsnet, CBS Sportsline, Fourthperiod..and many more. Thank God that I accidentally fell upon HabsWorld a couple of months ago. To top it all off, I try to listen to the games on CJAD (Game Time 2:30am) but my ******internet connection is at 40,000k!!! Not very effective. In any event, I'd love to tell all fans what being a Habs fan outside of the US and Canada is all about. Count me in. I have plenty of stories concerning my experiences for everyone. (One that comes to mind is the night in 1997 when I ended up drinking at Sessions on Cresent with Darcy Tucker, Chris Murray and Shane Corson!!) There are many more like that...Anyone interested?
  7. My belief is that Robinson, Roy and Gainey will most definitely be retired. Roy without a doubt is the only member of the Habs since he came into the league in 196 that help the torch up high. Cocky, confident and perserverant he undoubtedly deserves to have his number hanging from the rafters. Robinson was only the "greatest and most consistent" defenceman of his era. Dominating offensively, responsible defensively, and the fear of every hockey player in the 70's and early 80's. He is the reason why Chris Chelios will be in the hall of fame once he retires. Now Gainey might never had scored 50 goals, he might never been the type of player that got people on their feet, but just remember that this is the man that played with two separated shoulders in 1979, leading the Habs to the Stanley Cup and being honored the Conn Smythe Trophy.... Enough Said.....
  8. Forgot to include the links... http://nhl.speedera.net/nhlp/images/wmu/19...CON%20SMYTH.wmv http://nhl.speedera.net/nhlp/images/wmu/19...%20IN%20MTL.wmv If anyone has any interesting links from the 80's i'd love to know. I'm especially looking for Claude Lemieux's Game 7 overtime winner against Hartford. Mike Liut is still having nightmares about it!!
  9. I ran across these clips as I was on the "job". I'm sure all real genuine Habs fans will enjoy them. Roy sure as heck looks puney... When I see him like that, it baffles my mind how this kid carried a team on his back. I was at game 5 Wales Conferance Finals in the Forum against the Rangers. What a game. First game my old man ever took me to. After the game all the players were throwing their equipment to the fans. Ste-Catherine's was just like it is when they win the cup!! Text Tell me what u guys think...
  10. have followed and believed in Theodore since that magnificent game against New Jersey when as an inexperienced keeper he took over for Thibault. But trust me on this, he didn't play to his potential in the 2004 playoffs. Sure the team came back from a 1-3 deficit, but had Theo played up to his billing, we would have been up 3-1! He also sold his team in the Tampa series. Most notably that overtime goal scored by Dan Boyle (or was it Richards?) after Lecavalier had tied it with 17seconds left. I don't even want to remember that. Anyway, this is most probably just a rumor, and nothing more. But, if for any reason there is some validity to it I'm sure that Gainey will look into it. It makes sense for Montreal, but Ryder might be a bit too much to pay. If we could get a prospect in return it might make more sense, but all that talk about the Habs asking for Boumeester in return is just crazy. There is no way in hell that Florida will give up on a player of that stature, unless Keenan is on some serious Prozzak...
