Hamrlik in awe of Montreal

http://www.habsinsideout.com/main/5375


Habs fans in awe of Hamrlik One of the guys that show up every night, he's a rock.


Quote:
In today's Journal de Montréal, Marc de Foy writes that Canadiens defenceman Roman Hamrlik is in paradise playing in Montreal. While he is surprised by his team's performance this season, Hamrlik is even more impressed with the fans that have the Bell Centre rocking on a nightly basis. As the article says, he hasn't seen anything yet. Wait until the playoffs.

Hammer, in my opinion, has been our best defenseman all year.

Markov has had better games. Komisarek too. But Hamrlik never makes a mistake. I love him.

hmmm...I think Markov is our best d-man this year just because hes one of the 2 keys of our PP with Kovalev which gave us a lot of victory.
But hamrlik is not a bad choice.

I want to put an word + an emoticon but instead, I'll try to express an opinion.

Hamrlik is a stud on defense and, notwithstanding the fact he might be overpaid according to some experts, he plays efficiently every games, which is what Montreal fans want.

As long as he's playing good, he's not overpaid! Go Hammer!

No wonder free agents never want to come play in Montréal.

He picked the perfect time to come here to play and he has been a rock on the blue line paired most nights with BriseBois or a rookie. Without him, I don't even want to think about it.

I love this guy.

He is definitely an upgrade over Souray.

Talk about a great management!

I never wanted Souray back and now I know it was smart to think that way. I can't say I also said sign hamrlik but when I saw we did, I was pretty happy. Lord knows Calgary is missing him now

Calgary would have the best D in the NHL right now if they still had hammer.

Anyway, it's so true that once we are in the playoffs, the Bell Centre will be WAY louder!

Big time.I couldn't care less about Souray's slapshot.Hamrlik is a monster and he makes it all look easy when he's on the ice.He also deserve's a bonus for playing with Patrice...

The only real time we struggled this year is when Roman was out of the lineup..

Indeed. It's just not worth risking permanent hearing damage.

he replaced Rivet actually...the fact that he is left handed and wears number 44 is a crazy coincidence but his role is more of a rivet role

Last Thursday, after the 3-0 lost against the Sens, I saw Hamrlik with 2 girls come to Barraca Bar on Plateau Mont-Royal...

Hamrlik has played exceedingly well this season. He has been the most consistent d man we have. The only bad game he has had was the one in New York when we lost 4-3 to a Chris Drury breakaway in OT. Hamr finished -4 in that game, or something like that. Other than this, he has been a rock. Indeed, he gives the Habs a great top-three on the back end. The Habs, furthermore, made a great decision in signing him last offseason. I think it is one of the best signings of the offseason.

I know Hamrlik is happy about his decision to come to a madhouse for hockey. If he is impressed with this than a long playoff run will send him away for a hearing aid. I live 5000 km away and can feel the atmosphere at the Bell Centre through the television. Certainly, many times that I am watching I see the camera shaking quite violently. It must by an incredible experience to watch a game in such a rockin building. To the players, it must feel very special. It should make them realize that there is no better place to play hockey than in Montreal. If they happen to win a Cup than they will be treated with the greatest of respect in Montreal and by Habfans living around NA.

Gainey signed both Hamrlik and Kovalev as UFAs. IMO, without those two habs don't make the playoffs. Makes all his other UFA signings look like what they were - minor.

Kovalev re-signed as a UFA in august of 2005 following the lockout.
