The Habs

the montreal Canadiens are perhaps the most talented team is the NHL. They are faster and more graceful than any other playoff team. Yet they still struggle against teams they are much better than (Bruins, Flyers a combined 16-0 against them in the regular season). This brings me to believe the Habs lack heart. Players such as Kovalev, Higgins and Plekanec have not steped their games up, they arent playing bad just not what i expect in the playoffs. These Younger players like the Kostysyns and Lapierre have worked their buts off while Higgins misses open nets and Michael Ryser sits on the bench. This lack of heart among the Assistant captains (Kovalev, Higgins, and Markov not Koivu as Koivu is all heart) is what IMO the reason we are not winning.

The next issue is Goaltending. Carey Price is amazing. He is the future of the Habs and maybe the best goalie prospect of all time. These playoffs he has not been consistant, he was amazing in 4 games against the bruins and he was less than stellar the other 3. Last night he was absolutely disgusting. That shorthanded goal was dispicable and even the other two were weak. We really need for him to show up tommorow night because when he is on his game we win plain and simple. I for one think it would be a shame if Halak started, not be cause Price has sucked, but because Price needs his confidence up and he is the reason we have made it this far to doubt him now is exactly what he doesnt need it could ruin him. See. Raycroft for the leafs (amazing now he sucks). We need to Start Carey and give him some defense and get the early lead which is key.

By the way next year gives me the shivers especially if we could lure a sniper to replace Ryder that could score 30 goals a season.

Go Habs, in no time they will have me singing OLE OLE and P.S if we make it o the finals me and my buds are driving up to Montreal to party and watch the games (In a bar because i would have to sell my kidneys to get tickets) and hopefully we could join in the rioting when they win.

"all i know is he clipped Kovalevs  knee which is a penalty"

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO ................ NO ITS NOT YOU FREAKIN NERD.  For the last time (I Promise) on second thought. this brings up a VERY valid point about how little you REALLY know about hockey.

According to your rules, everytime someone gets checked and their knee hits the other guys knee....WHAMMO A penalty !!!

What's really funny and what keeps me coming back for more, Is I can't wait to see how your going to embarass yourself the next time.

Tell you what. You keep making up phantom rules and me and Harrison will keep shooting them down. This is bordering on comical. Here's another... When the Big Bad Montreal Fans are screaming Ole, Ole Ol............(Crickets Chirping)  We'll just score again like last time.

And hell yeah, I'm sure glad Carboneau is confident, LMFAO......... Cause Your goalies and the rest of the team sure aren't. LOL

Can't wait for your next brainstorm of a post.

I got nothing wrong with Dago's considering i myself am one.

Im dont know if Richards was trying to hit with his shoulder all i know is he clipped Kovalevs  knee which is a penalty i dont care how much of a bias view that is if that happened to richards u would be saying the exact same thing. And we wont be golfing, you dont know this but Carboneau is very confident going into these games if we play the way we have 4 all the games left i have no doubt we can win this series. Biron wont be able to handle the pressure in Montreal because know the fans are going to Scream any time the puck goes near the net.

Oh and i heard that Marvin Harrison is shooting up Philly. I dont care how much they riot up in MTL they dont go around shooting up places and people like they do in any U.S big cities. So stay away from North Philly or you might get shot by the least intimidating person on earth (Harrison)

Whatever... your a waste case afraid to admit his teams fate. NOW your saying his shoulder missed. Anything else we can help you with?

AND obviously You can't read either (along with following hockey) because I clearly stated that I watch and follow the entire NHL.

Something which you can't physically do with your one track mind. And guess what? I can talk all the crap I want  because THE FLYERS are up 3-1. So until your team shows some balls and can score a few, instead of throwin back a few. You can't say squat! Your wrong about the penalty and you know it.

Unless your blind which, in your case I might understand. Since most Canadiens fans are spouting the same crap. Have fun on the greens Jackass.  

Hey Next year in the NHL I heard they'll be awarding 1/2 a goal for every shot taken. But only for the Canadian teams. Us rednecks and dagos don't need no help.

If u miss a hit and then stick out our knee and hit someone it is Knee to Knee.  IF kovalev dangles some trying to hit him (which he did) and they instead stick their knee out and clip him low it is a penalty. I dont care what you say if you knew anything about hockey you could not disagree. But being the an American who probably has never played hockey in his life and are only a Flyer fan because they are in the playoffs i could see how you not realize this.

Rule 50 - Kneeing

50.1 Kneeing - Kneeing is the act of a player or goalkeeper leading with

his knee and in some cases extending his leg outwards to make

contact with his opponent.

Mancini.... Are really as stupid as you sound? This is what you said  "You dont have to lead with your knee"

YOU DO HAVE TO LEAD WITH YOUR KNEE for it to be called KNEEING.

Oh MY God, Dude READ THE RULE ABOVE IS WAS CUT AND PASTED RIGHT FROM THE RULEBOOK. He lead with his shoulder you fart. Kovalev Got hit Initially by his SHOULDER. WATCH THE REPLAY, you can find it on youtube, But do yourself a favor and turn the sound off. Just so you dont get confused again by the homeboy annoucers, who by the way retracted what they said in that telecast. Yes I DO know what goes on in Canada From way down here, Its called TV, Radio, and the Internet. I've tried to be fair with you, as I said Its fine to be a homer, I am too I loved Richards hit on Price But also knew it should have been a penalty. Thats the difference between you and I. You can' t OR won't admit when your wrong.

BTW, American Beer does not taste like piss Only Coors Light, Miller Lite And Bud do. Do they still make Grizzly Beer? Used to love that stuff.

You dont have to lead with your knee. If he didnt get dangled by kovalev it would have been a god hit but he did get dangled and he was caught out of position and clipped Kovalev therefore it was a penalty. He was caught out of position and clipped kovalev which equals a penalty.

Why would i want to taste an american beer, it tastes like piss.

Mr. Mancini,

KEYWORD IN THE RULE IN LAST POST I WANTED TO POINT OUT.

"LEADING"  &nbs
p; GET IT    "LEADING" ITS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WORD, because Richards LED with his shoulder. Maybe you Should run your self into a wall to knock some of the icesicles that are left over from winter. Clear your mind and you body try an amreican beer. instead of the foggy ales you have up there.

Ok Mr. Hockey,

Here's the rule :

Rule 50 - Kneeing

50.1 Kneeing - Kneeing is the act of a player or goalkeeper leading with

his knee and in some cases extending his leg outwards to make

contact with his opponent

NOW Mr. Smarty pants, And I also have to throw in Mr. Homer cause it fits you so well, WATCH THE PLAY AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. If you watch it 10 times you will NEVER NEVER See Richards Lead with his knee you assclown NEVER If their Knees make contact in the process IT DOESNT MATTER. Are you that thickheaded?

Dude...Your Team is losing, it doesnt matter how. If they were as great as you make them out to be, they would find a way to win at least one game (Without Help) Game 1 is Null and VOID.

Again GREAT teams find a way to overcome great goaltending in the playoffs, You barely made it past the 8 seed in Boston . Now your crying because your team can't beat the 6 seed. Grow a set will ya. Own up, your team is NOT winning and it aint all because of our Goalie. See you on the greens, where I'll be happy to slap you around with a 5 iron just for bein stupid. Enjoy the games and its ok to be a homer. But you need to stop the whining.

LOL no, I'm pretty sure everyone that seen the play and wasn't a Habs fan said it wasn't a penalty.  And the hit on Umberger was 10x worse and more blatant then Richards.  Richards knee never hit Kovalev, when will you get that through your head, look at the replay and say that hit his knee, and you're a complete moron.  I'm an Italian Philly guy, I know that wasn't directed towards me, just saying I'm Italian too.  And I'm not so sure Price would've stopped any of those, he was just as bad in the first 3 games.  BIRON BIRON BIRON!!! Story of the series, he's just unbelievable right now, and you have 2 days to figure him out or you're beloved Habs are done.

How the F do you know what they were saying in Canada u idiot. They actually debated it on TSN and even the Bias Leaf fans (our rival) said it was a penalty. He may have led with his shoulder but hit kovalev knee to knee.

They have outplayed the flyers not because of only the shots but because they have controlled the games and they have had double the scoring chances. And Begin hit was a little cheap but it wasnt against the rules, it wasnt charging.

Maxim Lapierres hit was not interference as the flyer hit the puck with his hand.

Oh and the 1st 2 goals were soft as cottonelle. The fist somehow went in (Price wouldve stopped it) the second should have been gloved before it hit the crossbar but Halak misplayed it.

Move to Italy.What are u a racist, i thought Philly was filled with italians and you want to get racial on me. What abused by some dagos while you were younger.

And I wouldnt count the series over just yet.
