The Good, Bad and Ugly - Grabovski, Be a man, drop your gloves and stand up for yourself

Feb. 10, 2013: Montreal Canadiens Josh Gorges fought a guy twice his size with his team trailing 6-0 and it's best player nearly taken out by a 4th line fighter, who was Gorge's actual target. Doesn't matter how many punches he landed or took. Better yet was his post - game media session when he said what had to be said about Toronto Maple Leafs Mikhail Grabovski and Colton Orr.

In defence of Erik Cole

Feb. 9, 2013: Quickie blog prior to Leafs - Habs to point something out in response to growing number of fans/media who think Erik Cole is on his last legs, 10 months removed from a 35 goal season. I remember discussing the same subject early last season as a number of NHL watchers including media, fans and former players wondered where his speed had gone. Some of us tried to point out that Cole traditionally starts slowly. FULL STORY

The Good, Bad and Ugly - Canadiens are making a habit of coming out flying in their own building

Feb. 3, 2013: There was a giddiness to the crowd at the Bell Centre which seemed apropos with so many kids in the seats, so many impressive young players on the Habs roster and a second period explosion that sent Buffalo SabresRyan Miller to the bench for the first time in nearly 40 career starts against the Montreal Canadiens.

The Good, Bad and Ugly - Habs opener wasn't half bad, for an exhibition game

Jan. 20, 2013: Well that wasn't half bad. For an exhibition game. Good to be in the Bell Centre again for the opener between the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. But I still miss the Forum. Brandon Prust couldn't ask for a better Montreal debut. Beating Mike Brown in a fight and putting the puck in the net. Before the goal was called off. FULL STORY

Now that Habs have fired Pierre Gauthier, it is time to bring Pierre McGuire home to Montreal

Mar. 29, 2012: This one is overdue. I'm not going to step aside over some supposed professional code. I sincerely believe that Pierre McGuire would do a terrific job as an NHL General Manager. And I think it's about bloody time somebody in this town talked to him about the GM post of the Montreal Canadiens. FULL STORY

It seemed like the Canadiens were making it interesting again, until Eric Staal took control

Feb. 14, 2012: It seemed like the Montreal Canadiens were making it interesting again. Until Eric Staal took control in the third period Monday night, with some help from a former teammate. Kaberle's most embarrassing moment as a Hab. Two more years. 8.5 million dollars. FULL STORY

Bring Pierre McGuire home to Montreal

Feb. 1, 2012: This one is overdue. I'm not going to step aside over some supposed professional code. I sincerely believe that Pierre McGuire would do a terrific job as an NHL General Manager. And I think it's about bloody time somebody in this town talked to him about the GM post of the Montreal Canadiens. FULL STORY

The idiocy of the trade Subban brigade embarrasses the Montreal market more than Gauthier does

Jan. 21, 2012: All of this drama giving more ammunition to those who believe PK Subban is too self centered to develop into a top flight defenseman is ugly. The idiocy of the "let's trade PK (and Price) brigade embarrasses this market more than Pierre Gauthier does. FULL STORY

The 2011-2012 edition of the Canadiens already has me looking elsewhere

Jan. 19, 2012: I'm restless by nature. But the 2011-2012 edition of the Montreal Canadiens already has me looking elsewhere. I can only hope Geoff Molson feels the same way. I cannot remember a Canadiens team with a power play percentage as low as under 13%. Can't pin this on Mike Cammalleri. FULL STORY

Who'd have thought the Habs would lose to the Sens, but beat the Rangers

Jan. 16, 2012: Just like you figured. The Habs would lose to Ottawa and then beat the top team in the conference. Following a near perfect victory in Toronto Saturday night the Rangers didn't seem prepared to deal with the Canadiens' top line. FULL STORY
