Playoff time in Detroit

Hasek got hit with a puck the other night and it made him go ouchie so he might be out tonight.

I thought it was the goalie's job to get hit with pucks.

you would think right? No, not the Leafs, instead we pay top dollar for old guys who get injured half way through the season, defensemen who stand around with their thumbs up their asses and goalies made of swiss cheese

7 to 1 last night... 7 to fucking 1!!!

A score of 7-1 in today's NHL is practically unheard of.

You might be better off to switch allegiance now, elfa. :console:

Win or lose the Air Canada Centre (and the Bell Centre here in Montreal, for that matter) will be filled to capacity and the waiting list for season tickets a mile long. If someone decides they're fed up with the direction of the team and drop out, there's always someone willing to take their place.

So, while management will not admit it, my theory is that there's no real incentive to go all out and field a winning team. Why should you spend money on players when the arena is full anyway and the money is coming in by the truckload? If fans stay away, then that would force upper management to do something to attract big-name players to the team.

This is true, as long as people keep buying up the tickets there will not be any drastic changes

Yeah indeed!

Did Price really deserve first star, as granted by RDS (I missed a lot of the game as I was switching between that and the Ontario election results) or were they being their usual biaised selves?

One game does not a career make but I was mighty impressed with Price's poise. He never gets too high nor too low. I hope he's as good as everyone says he's going to be.

That 2005 draft may turn out to be one of the best in quite a while. Sidney Crosby, Bobby Ryan, Jack Johnson, Price, Gilbert Brulé and Anze Kopitar, to name a few. I still remember Pierre McGuire's reaction when Montreal chose Price with the 5th overall pick. He couldn't understand the logic behind it. I wonder what he thinks about that pick now.

It's about time that the Habs luck out in the draft after some God-awful selections in the 1990s (Brent Bilodeau, Terry Ryan, Terry Higgins, anyone?). Montreal's future looks bright with Chris Higgins, Mike Komisarek, Michael Ryder ( an unrestricted free agent after the season), Andrei Markov, Kyle Chipchura, Ryan O'Byrne, Tomas Plekanec and Price.

Go Habs Go!

I'm glad I didn't see the game tonight. Canucks lost 8-2. Ouch.

Don't ask me how, or why. It's sick, but I keep coming back.

Flyers win 8-2

Jesse Boulerice

I seem to recall a stick-swinging incident with Boulerice, either in juniors or maybe as a rookie in the AHL...and now this pretty ugly crosscheck. I wonder if he'll get suspended.
