Re: RIP Canadiens beat writer Red Fisher

What an incredible life!  His first night covering the Habs was the Richard Riot and he covered 17 of 24 Montreal cups.  Is there any non-player who garners as much respect amongst the Montreal Canadiens community?  Thank you Red for a life well lived and sharing it with the world in newsprint.

Re: Garbage

With regards to CJ....

Gordon Ramsey and I could both cook KD and it would taste identical.  A chef needs ingredients to work with.  CJ is definitely working with tube noodles and cheese powder here.

Johab is doing well.  He recently worked the broadcast of the WJHC in Buffalo.  His dreams are coming true.

With the season lost...

Should we not put Chucky at Center with Drouin on his wing for a good long look?  This team has nothing to lose by doing this, and everything to gain if Chucky can be given an honest opportunity to truly develop.  Make it Kirk Muller's personal mission to work with the kid and see if we can salvage ...

Speaking of battle plans, MB’s plan was about as effective as the Maginot Line.

Re: Sadly here to announce

Habtastic last posted in August.  There was no mention of health.  I know Nil-D met Randy in 2016, do you keep in touch Nil?

Re: Habs injuries will secure Bergevin's job

I believe the plan was to conserve the cap money, be serious buyers at the deadline for a run in the playoffs.  Very few battle plans survive contact with the enemy.  When they were losing game after game early on, he needed to do something, but he chose to believe the answers were there in the room...

Re: Habs injuries will secure Bergevin's job

I disagree.  Sitting on all that cap space while the team wallowed early in the season has probably doomed him.  He stated that the solution to the problems was in the room.  He may be right, he just wasn’t talking about our dressing room.  I think he’s toast on locker clean out day.

Age, dates, location and occupation match.  I knew he was from Guelph and now lived in the London area.  It is a sad day.

I believe this is his obituary.  He and I have exchanged some PM's over the last while.

Re: It has come to this

I hope Kassian got an extra two.  Let's remember why MB picked up Kassian, he's got "character".
