Exactly! I really like reading other teams forums because it isn't often that you get other peoples opinions on the team. Sure sometimes what they say is just on the heat of the moment and I try to ignore those posts but when someone presents a good argument, well, it gets interesting.

Yep, there is a good way to engage a conversation in enemy territory and a bad way. Sometimes they are both met with hostility however...but whatever.

I don't agree with staying out of other teams forums completely, but when you see a thread that's a vent-fest, discretion is the better part of valour. Though people on all sides have gotta remember that this is just a game, and that the sun still comes up in the morning, win or lose.

I normally come to read threads from other team boards without posting. In the series against the Bruins, several Bruins posters said that Habs fans are a$$holes, or ******* the Habs fans, and the mods do nothing about it. I feel that I have to response because I am a Habs fans and the comments are directing at me. Does it make me a troll? In my opinion, any person posting thing like that should be banned permanently.

The comments would probably only be directed at you if you were one of the fans that was posting on their board to begin with? Most Bruins fans love discussing hockey and can do with the occasional opinion from outside to "broaden our horizons". The problem is that I feel like on our board I should be able to make a comment without worrying about a boatload of Habs fans getting their knickers in a bunch.

The other problem is one that several posters were joking about earlier. For some reason, some Habs fans feel like they need to get everybody elses fans to love the Canadiens. While that's an admirable goal, it's probably not a realistic one, and it's also pretty freaking annoying to have to hear about how great the Habs are after they just beat you in a seven game series.

I am not as militant as some regarding my Hab hatred, but I can see how people could get upset. A little common sense goes a long way.

I go to some of the other boards just to get the temperature reading every now and then. Most of the time I post nothing. If I see something factual I might reply, but for the most part if the threads are negative that you read, posting anything does not get readily accepted. So why bother unless you like trading insults and getting banned

Most boards are not too bad at all. I find the Sens and Bruins boards to be the most negative. We don't like them much either, so no great loss

Thanks for give me perspective from the Bruins fans. I guess in the heat of the battle, you may say a lot of thing you regret later on. What bother me is that I did not see other Bruins fans denounce these behaviour. Instead, quite a few seemed to support it. If my fellow Habs fans is behaving this way, you can be certain that I will criticize them.

I regularly read other boards, but don't post much other than to ask a question about a player or to correct a factual error. No point in giving a negative opinion about a certain aspect of a team since it won't be received well.

Fair enough, but here you are posting and I don't exactly see any folks acting half as poorly as you describe. Something tells me a lot of folks expect, or possibly even want the worst kind of response.

Anyway, I have no problem with Bruins fans visiting and exchanging a few barbs. It is usually all in fun. Unfortunately some folks just have to say some downright ignorant stuff and that is unfortunate.

For example: "Some" Bruins fans were commenting about being "surprised" that there was a power play at the end of the first Habs / Philly game. If they actually saw the penalty and wanted to discuss it that would be cool. Unfortunately "they" didn't sound like they really wanted to talk about that at all. But I guess you'd say it would just be venting instead of discussing facts

You make a good point. I enjoy the B's board, but then I have no need to make you love the Kostitsyn brothers, though we both know you should.

In return, we should adopt Lucic. I really like him as a player.

I hate the Bruins, Leafs, Flyers and Rangers. But I still respect their players for what they are. What gets my goat is the lack of respect shown for Hab players. Sure hate the team, but at least respect the players for what they are.

Exactly. Insulting Lucic for doing a really good job is just as stupid as calling Komi a gutless coward. You know it is not true so why say it.

Liking a player and respecting a player are two different things

Same thing with after the Boston series, there seemed to be almost as many Habs fans over there as there were here.

Let them do their trash talking on their own boards, that's what they are there for. We should just stay here and let the habs do the talking on the scoreboard.

Just an opinion.....
How about *you* stay off other teams boards and everybody else can do what they please?

Does that work?

The problem is the number of habs fan. However, it's not any of us' individual fault if habs fan are numerous.

I was there. Flyers fan started complaining against the number of habs fans, but every one I read was quite polite. I didN't see any trolling.
Actually, the first Flyers fan to complain even took issue at a thread started by a habs fan that was meant to say good luck and show some respect in total sportsmanship...

Where is the world at if you can't say good luck to your opponents? It's just a common way to be polite and show some respect.

I don't mean to criticize too much with this but I think that part of the rules could be enforced more severely.

Montreal is the oddity in the league for numerous reasons (language, passion of their fans, the media, etc.). Therefore, its fan base is often the subject of harsh comments. I've read on these boards a lot of BS and trash talks against habs fans, Quebec province, french people, Montreal, etc.

I understand that ignorance and cultural misunderstandings lead to these kind of things, but Quebecers are rather touchy regarding ignorant and prejudiced comments against them.

It is normal that if this rule is not enforced properly many of us will find it quite hard to refrain from explaining, informing and ultimately defending ourselves against these attacks.

that post was great.. mostly because my dog did that once, to her vet.. she was a pup. she didnt like him at all, so she also bit him on the nose. he said she should be put to sleep, my mom came home and told me the story, i said he should be put to sleep and we got a new vet, after much thought, he was probably a bruins fan. (im obviously kidding with the last part)

as for the subject at hand, what i would like to know (and ive wondered for quite some time) how could we (as habs fans) dispel the notion that the habs are "small and soft" (or that we're smurfs) or whatever effectively and "safely" (as in, within the rules) when others just dont want to listen? (i obviously dont mean im going to go in after a tough series and say "man.. who's soft now you jerks?" or some idiotic crap like that) but i mean, reading various posts both here and elsewhere you'd think we still were icing the koivu, val bure and oleg petrov line from way back when as all 4 lines and all 6 d-men lol.. its almost comical

WHAT is that guy smoking?

Where did they make Price look Vilnerable? One goal was put in by US and another was pure BS, couldnt get any luckier then that.

They dominated the game? what game was he watching?
they dominated parts of the game, just as much as we dominated parts of it.

my jaw dropped when I saw that post, lol

People who call the Habs a soft team obviously haven't seen many Hab games, I wouldn't worry about them. They'll change their tune when they watch us in the Cup final(yes, we'll be there). The only people who repeatedly call us soft are some Bruin fans, but that's because they refuse to accept the fact that we outhit them in round 1

You forgot to add:
- Dowd allowed Kostopoulos not 1 but 2 rebounds of his own shot in OT--unforgivable
- Bison wasn't exactly a solid wall
- 2 Flyer goals were sheer gifts and are unlikely to be repeated
