With Price in net, we don't need defensive minded players. Actually come to think of it, we should put an extra forward between the pipes!

One more fan of the Montreal Canadiens died yesterday of a severe stroke. Again, like those that claimed the lives of close to a thousand during the year, it was caused by his favorite team, and Québec's foremost Sports Restaurant franchise, La Cage aux Sports.

After the Montréal Canadiens disposed of the Islanders 7-2 in another lopsided win, Maurice Gingras, of Sorel, went to feast on delicious Chicken Wings with 7 of his friends. However, since it was the 24th time in the last 6 months he participated in the Cage's promotion (which, most likely, will be upped to 8 goals next year, the company having posted a spectacular deficit this year), the excitation, alcohol and cholesterol caused an intense stroke during the celebration. The ambulance was unable to arrive on time, as they, too, were busy eating chicken wings in another Cage.

The government is getting ready to issue a statement to promote healthy eating habits, as some called for a provincewide ban on chicken wings. However, as Police chief Dubé said last week, Habs fans are so darn fat now there is no way they'll cause a riot when the Habs win the cup. They'll be in bed at 11.

Mr. Gingras' wife, Ginette, showed little regret. "Now he'll stop talking about those darned Kostitsyn brothers. He even asked me to shave my head so I look almost bald".

As the Montreal Canadiens attempt to acquire their 63rd win against Toronto tomorrow night, we can only hope this will be the last death this year.

Great job!

I actually don't usually find that these types of posts are very funny since most people take them too far. But this, my friend, was very well done!

Tanguay - Sundin -Kovalev
Higgins - Plekanec - A. Kostitsyn
S. Kostistyn - Koivu - G. Latendresse
MaxPac - Lang - Laraque/Lapierre/Kostopoulos

This line up would be crazy! 4 offensive lines with really good center depth.

Sundin salary = Dandeneault + Kostopoulos + Bégin + Lapierre + Bouillon salaries ( Weber takes his spot )

Well it would be great but at some point already having 3 offensive lines will create conflicts.. image 4 lines.


lol. also most likely gainey wouldnt do it, and imo its a good thing. I would love 2 strong lines with vivid imagination and 3 th line with tremendous work ethic and 40pts potential on each of the players and a 4th line more physical with size..

pretty much what we have now.. its the defense that worries me.

How Gainey's answering ? by going with 3 offensive line ? nah nah ...that's ridiculous !

I want my Habs to go with 4 offensive lines and i want them to score 5 average goals per game , so that they will all get a big fat stanley cup ring ....

Kovalev Plekanec Akost
Tanguay Koivu Higgins
Skost Lang Latendresse
Maxpac Maxwell D'Agostini

Chipchura

would you like some fries with that COKE?

Even if they could produce like that, wide open hockey won't win championships anymore. By now you should know that the stanley cup finals is all about shutting the other team down, not scoring as much as you can.

Montreal showed they needed more firepower last year. They got shut down well by Boston's tight defensive system, and then by a hot goalie. How would more shutdown players have helped in those 2 series? What they showed was that the Habs needed more gamebreaker forwards who could score the big goals needed when an all star dman (Chara) has you in a headlock, or a hot goalie (Biron) won't give you a break. This is what Tanguay and Lang will help with.

I like the Tanguay and Lang acquisitions, and I'll like them even more once Tanguay is placed on LW, which is bound to happen sooner or later. Hopefully soon, MaxPac and Ben Maxwell can add even more offensive talent to the forward group.

However, there is something to be said for having a few guys who are strong on the boards in their own end and intelligent enough to read the play, break things up and get the puck out of the defensive zone so that the gamebreaker forwards can do their thing. That's how a Chipchura could be very useful for a team. Of course, faceoff improvement by him would be welcome, too.
