Nice caveat re: TVA......... I would not trust Renaud Lavoie to tell me the time

Re: Pacs

I'm of two minds.  I like the guy when he's producing (like right this moment), but when he's not he's hard to watch (if you can spot him at all). I must add he's a terrible passer.  He really is a two-dimensional player - a sniper and good defensively.  Anything else he's not so hot at, and many ni...

Probably the last of that old-style gumshoe reporter.  And a damn fine writer.

Re: Favorite Hab

My idol on the Habs, in hockey, in sports, in life.................... the one and only Jean Beliveau.  I was born in 1956 and remember roughly the last third of his career.  The way he comported himself on and off the ice is an ideal that thousands of others after him could only aspire to. I rememb...

Funny one for a slow news day.............

I saw a Habs game about 25 years ago on TV, and there was this play where Benoit Brunet was going down the ice with the puck, and Stephan Lebeau was behind him.  The announcer goes “…. et c’est Benoit Brunet, avec Lebeau derrière….

Open letter to Habs Defensive corps

Dear Karl, Jeff, Jordie, David (and to a lesser extent Jakub & Victor):

Just a friendly reminder that Christmas was last month.... enough with the gifts already!

You have already set a new NHL record for giveaways in a year.  You can stop now.

Sincerely,

Open letter to Jonathan Drouin

Dear Jonathan:

Two quick suggestions for you:

1.  Shoot the puck!  You have a good shot; use it.

2.  When you feel like passing, please see #1.

Thank you for your consideration.
