    I clearly really really want him as our next coach ! No Doubt... I'm trying to stay positive and looking at these lines as " He is under contract... Pay us and we will see " 

    With the type of players we got, he is the perfect guy ! 

    Imagine just for an exercise that i knew nothing about the guy, how would you describe him and what he could bring.

    i actually know nothing about the guy.


  2. So now. living in habs land. All im hearing from the media and fans is that the league is against them and trying to change the rules because of Price... claiming that teams are scared to play against him in the playoffs... 

    Now that the Pens apparently voted no to the playoffs format out of fear of playing against Price etc etc

    I fvcking hate that fanbase and their media so so bad.

    I came here to report on this as well - I didn't see any articles, but a good friend of mine that works for the Blue Jackets said it's a done deal and will be announced officially sometime early next week. The Eastern Conference will either be in Columbus, Sunrise, or Toronto.  Columbus is playing Toronto, and the Lightning get a bye.  Not sure how the rest is worked out but if I hear more I'll let everyone know.

    there's a lot of details out already

    Holy sh!t did l HATE the final season of dexter. All that buildup for him to completely abandon the code, absolutely horrendous.

    GoT was frustrating but man did Dexter actually make me mad.

    yeahh... i mean... how GOT ended... What happened... all made sense in a way... it was rushed and not well executed i feel but still.. i think it's mostly a case of people not getting what they wanted. Like i can understand all the decisions mostly. 

    But Dexter... that's really a... why in hell would you end it like this? Not gonna spoil anything but one person really never deserved what happened to her. Terrible terrible decision.

    My favorite Doc call will always be “THEY SCORE! HENRIQUE! IT’S OVER!” but a close second has to be this hilarious voice cracking call on Parise’s OT goal vs MTL

     

    I remember that was a saturday and i was at a party with a bunch of habs fans. After the game i went home and grabbed my parise jersey and went to every single bar in 2 different town to rub it in

    I know ratings aren’t everything, but the GoT series finale actually has a lower rating on IMDb (4.1) than Dexter’s (4.6). Ouch lol

    Ok  then i'm gonna start over.

    I guess once you've seen the finale for Alf... is sets the bar pretty damn low for everything else.

    edit: just checked... the rating on imdb for that one is over 7.... screw this. you have to be a maniac to appreciate the last episode of Alf. He got captured by the government, we know they were going to kill him and run a bunch of experimentations on him.

  7. i was not a huge fan of how things ended for many many characters in GOT and i felt there was a lot of missed opportunities but it didn't make me hate it. I'm always trying to differentiate not getting exactly what i expected or wanted and what is actually a flaw. These days there's quite a bit of people who cannot make the difference when they are watching something.

    If anything the pacing was either too stretched or too rushed once the big battle happened. That episode was actually amazing IMO.

    I don’t think a lot of people realize how rare a talent a Crosby or a McDavid are. Now the expectation is that an undersized 18 year old is going to just drop right into an NHL roster and have an immediate impact. 

    I still believe he would have benefitted from a season in the AHL. Not that he would have gotten a full season to do it because of the virus, but he definitely could have used a year of development before making his NHL debut. 

    I used to feel the same about Pavel Zacha, although I now think no amount of time in the AHL would have benefitted him.

    Well i mean, that's not to say he won't develop into an amazing player. But there's just so many factors as to why he didn't produce as much as most first overall (and that's kind of an unfair comparison in a way)

    We just have to be patient. We could say it's just his size... but then other small players like pat kane didnt struggle because of his age / size etc

    Every player has a different path. Kucherov wasn't even  a first overall but he's been playing like one and didnt make the league in the first few years so who knows. we just have to be patient

    No worries, just messing around - it's been so long since I have teased you. :P

    I think it's silly to be down on him - the team as a whole stunk but more specific to Hughes there's clear evidence of bad shooting luck (to some degree) and I don't think the fact he was literally the youngest player in the NHL last season should be overlooked.

    yes but it also shouldn't be that much of an excuse. Every year the first overall making the NHL is always the youngest player in the nhl and it was never used as an excuse before


  10. i wish we would have seen this much desperation from the NHL and players to get a season going when they were having a money tug war and seasons were cancelled for a lockout.

  11. I mean let's be honest. If it wasn't that I have my own business. I could easily get fired if some stuff i say privately to some of my pals leaked publicly and out of context lol

    And i'm ceeeeertainly not the only one. So i'm not excusing what he said, but i'm not going to condone something said between friends in private.

    Hell, imagine if MB3 was running for president and someone in the media found this website and all the things he said he would have done to Taylor Hall hahahaha as Doc said best "IT'S OVER!".

  12. Getting 2 top 10 picks on top of our recent first overall picks, getting a new coach (hopefully Gallant) and getting a GM we're all happy with... plus well just getting hockey at some point should be a nice little positive push.

    Getting Gillis would not be fun at all though... There's just nothing he did at all, trade, signings, results... absolutely NOTHING that makes me go. Yeah cool i like his vision or what he does.

  13. yeah there was rumours with the Rangers and MTL too. So if we can land him... thats a bonus that they didnt

    MTL do have a lot of Finish players so that might convince him.

    Yeah definitely understand. Hell in my rant I went back and forth on the subject too. I’m also incredibly selfish and want something back to break up the routine of one week work the other off. But that quote definitely struck a nerve cause there are plenty of people out there sacrificing more than playing a sport for the timeframe.

    again, a good deal of selfishness on my end but oh well.

    My hot take on this is that... that's their job and shouldn't take it for granted. Obviously i understand it's important to spend time with your family and all. But those kids dreamed of playing in the NHL, their whole life they trained, made sacrifices and dreamed of one day playing in the big league. Their parents sacrificed everything to help them. Now they made it and they want to put that aside cause they won't sacrifice spending a bit of time away from their families? How many people are FORCED to spend time away for their families for sh!tty work just to pay the bills and provide.

    Now i'm not saying this to rub people the wrong way or anything... I doubt any of them dreamed of... having kids and having BBQs with your family by the pool... Almost anyone in the world can accomplish that and its basically a given that it's what you'll do. Hell some does it by accident lol Playing in the NHL is SO rare, about 700 people in the world are living that dream now.

    I'd also be pissed if i was super driven, have a chance at a cup finally after dreaming about it my whole life and being in a position to make that happen.. but then some of my teammates doesn't want to comeback cause they'd miss their families... Plus the business paying them their luxurious life iand who gave them everything they have is currently taking a HUGE HIT and bleeding. So i also feel it's selfish to not do what's best for everyone involved. 

    That's just my personal opinion, at my core i'm personally not a "family first" person im a goal driven person, which is why i see it that way. Obviously most people are family first so right from the get-go we won't agree on this... core values are not aligning so no need to argue about this all day lol

    Edit: all of that being said. That's my stance say the league resumed this season. For the record if it was my decision, i'd be cancelling the season and prepping for the next season. It's way too much of a mess, players wont be in game shape, it will be weird. And next season will also suffer if they play too late in the summer. Just bring on the damn draft
