I used to love going to Toe's. You can keep the nice clubs, give m and old tavern any day. ahh, the 20 cent draft. Of course you actually get good beer on tap these days, but I loved taverns.

If we fans know anything about hockey it's that anyone can be moved for the right price. In terms of what goes on in the room and/or at practice, I have to believe that with the media coverage in Montréal anything out of the ordinary would be in the public domain.

I know this is probably all bullcrap, but who would you choose between those two?
here we go again... same story different day for François Gagnon. in any given team the 2 best player MUST hate eacher even if he didn't say the word HATE in his article. i dont understand why kovy was given the "C" first place. yes sure he was great during the regular season and all but so many other team had their captain injured, and they didn't give it away to the next best player or the best player on the team.

I had no clue this was the case until I went to a game in March and the Get to know your Habs question in the second period was Who don't you want to room with on the road? Most of the guys said Koivu, with Higgins saying Koivu had his own room on the road because nobody wanted to room with him. They were saying it in a joking manner, citing that Koivu is very neat and Ryder said he goes to sleep very early (10pm he said) on non-game nights, etc..

I know its a dumb question, but it was a little detail that got me thinking. Does Koivu really fit with the team? Most of the young players (The Kostitsyns, Grabs, Plekanec) look up to Kovy and guys like Lapierre, Latendresse, etc.. aren't Koivu followers either.
as far as i can remember ( i could be wrong ) there was only one person who said saku in a joking way that hes very neat, and stuff. there wasn't alot of them. most said it was the goalie and lats cause he talks to much lol.

I wonder if puck bunnies were as dirty in the 50's as they are today?

No. Most of what they do these days hadn't even been invented yet back then.

You know, breast implants, nose jobs, fake tans, butt lifts, blonde highlights etc. The gift from the parents at your sweet sixteen used to be a pretty dress and a new pair of shoes . My, how times have changed.

If that's the case, the next 3-4 years are going to suck.

Butt lifts ? I'd get a friggin' hernia , what happened to doing weights ?

Yup, I remember the frock dear old Dad gave me at 16, those were the days, chiffon, I believe.

Oh, you were talking about what they do to themselves.

But I know what you mean. Used to be our ******* (female dogs) got a trim at home once a season and that was that. Now, they have these clothing accesories, tail enhancements, buffed up poddle hair. Sad, really.

Please, let's keep Gagnon. At least he gives us something to discuss.

The place didn't close in the 50's. Last time I was there, probably early 80's ? It was closed a long time ago. It just sounded cool to go to Toe Blake's tavern.

I wrote an entertaining limerick with Vezina's name, but when I found out it wasn't the hard I sound, it didn't make much sense.
