Laughter is the best medicine.......


Knee slapping, belly aching, bordering on hysteria laughter.  Okay, I've regained my composure now, I'm not ready to jump off the Champlain Bridge just yet.  Don't get me wrong, the loss of Markov is the worst possible scenario for our Habs, but keep in mind it's not the same team that went 0-8 last season when Markov went down.  We also have a new coach, one with experience in handling adversity.  With Markov on the IR list, maybe Bob will make a move.  It will all depend on how the team performs in the coming weeks, this is a huge test to see what these guys are made of.  It is what it is and one small consolation is that it happened now and not in March.  The Pens were struggling last season without Gonchar but after he returned to the lineup they got on a roll all the way to the Stanley Cup.  Anything is possible, hope springs eternal at Chez Moey's.

I enjoyed the game last night, even though our boys were running around like headless chickens for most of the night.

The only point that Komo proved was that he is a complete idiot,  I guess that just happens automatically when you put on a leafs' jersey.  

I would like to see the Habs offer Glen Metropolit the "A" now that Markov is gone.  He's a good solid player and a role model for kids everywhere. 

Price played a brilliant game, I 'm hoping for more of the same tomorrow night against Buffalo.  He has all the talent in the world, he just needs to be more consistant.

I thought the  USS Hal Gill was more comparable to a tugboat than a freighter, the whipping boy position is now vacant with Breezer's retirement. Poor Gill will be a suitable replacement, the ragging has already started.

How close did I come with my predicton in my last post about the gloves coming off at the 2 minute mark of the first period?  Laraque dopped the gloves at 1:51.

Andre Kostitsyn is as useless as ____________(insert you favorite expression here).


On to Buffalo.

".....a couple of guys I used to work with."
Everything's going to be fine with Markov out. All they have to do is steal the odd game, like last night.
And I'll bet Hal Gill was really, really nervous.

Metro pinned himself with a makeshift C while at the ranch :D But yea, he deserves an A too.

Andre Kostitsyn is as useless as "hoping to see refs with the balls to call every single one of Komisarek's acts of stupidity". We would have had maybe 10 goals and a big laugh. On the serious side, I noticed AK46 always takes a good few weeks to warm up...

My brother thinks Hal Gill is actually a Treant.

Dennis,

I think people are freaking out thinking of last year. It's not the same team and it's a different mentality, we can weather this storm. Gill is going to be fine but you know what some "fans" are like, they need someone to blame.

Number31,

I had to look up Treant on Wiki,

"Treants resemble large moving trees with faces."

Very apt description and I hope you're right about AK46.
