I just had this very disturbing thought of you donning 1 of her dresses and racing down the 138 to wrestle around in a parking lot with a woman.

Thankfully I have the weekend to recover.

You nuts ? What if the old broad [sorry smack66] got some shots in ? The old lady can fight her own battles.

But you could do like the WWE and hide a garbage can lid or some such weaponry under those big granny dresses. Or take a handful of shopping coupons & drop them. When she bends to pick them up you sucker her & get the h#@@ out of Dodge.

Yeah, I'm assuming we're talking about someone older than me, but, maybe that's not the case. Oh well, acting childish is the only young I've got left.

Your mom is definetely rough and tough....

Now can we talk about something other than her beard

Note: joke was too good to resist... I've never met your mom and I wouldn't actually say those things about your mom. Mostly cause she'd kick my ass.

There's nothing wrong with that, but making it out like winning those physical battles doesn't mean "anything" is just plain silly. Yes winning the game is what really matters, but no one wants to get walked over whether they win or lose.
I never commented on the BGL signing, but thanks for asking.

Yeah, you guys have sure walked all over the Habs with the physical play, not just the last 4 years but throughout history. Boston has always been big and bad while the Habs have always been the high flying skilled team.

Not until you drones over there do away with this ridiculous notion that toughness will get you anywhere in the long run, you will never get anywhere. All it will get you is stupidity on message boards. Yes, you win at arguing on a message board with your moral victories. Good for you. In the meantime, I will look for the next championship team that wears the CH.

I know it was posted but I just wanted to make note of it for future reference.

Honestly, all childish comments aside (work with me here, acting like an adult is easy right) I never said, nor even alluded to Montreal being the fast skilled guys through all times. I don't know if it's little man syndrome or what, but don't worry I'm well aware of the history of tough Montreal players and teams. I hated the teams, but I respect them more then enough.

My comment was pretty self explanatory, and I think the monstrous thread on the BGL signing compared to the smaller Tanguay signing thread tells much. One only need to have been awake during the introductions the other night to know that most Habs fans are fairly excited at the prospect of getting some "moral victories" of their own, and for good reason. You may not be part of the majority, I don't care either way. No one likes to be walked all over, and lets face it, last year they lacked that guy that could hold the other team accountable for their actions (unless Kostopolous, or Sergei Kostitsyn are now legit concerns on the other bench). Now they have it, and good on them.

Well yeah, you are right, we're all very happy that Laraque will prevent us from being pushed around too much. Since the Houle era until recently, we've been way too soft. But you are kind of off point. The thing is that we're expecting a lot more than moral victories for the centennial year of our franchise, we want the moon. Laraque is one piece of that puzzle. But yeah, good for us, Laraque will fight and protect our smaller guys.

the fight if anything was a draw.

But i suppose some unbiased and non-homer hab fans wants to give it Laraque for noogies to the back of the head.....

should help to light a fire under the rivalry the might actually draw some recognition back from the rest of the league finally.
Maybe the noogies were because Thornton had a headlock on him.

If Carbo is bright, he's gonna realise that's why we got BGL: to be respected. A big turning point in the series two years ago when Pittsburgh met Ottawa was Neil hitting everything that move, hitting all the best Penguins players and Michel Therrien never sending Laraque to set things straight. Well not long after a few Neil hits, guys like Malkin completly disappeared. I felt it was a really stubborn way to do things by Therrien and it cost them the series. I will believe till the day I die that this was the most important moment of those series.

It remain to be seen if Carbo will use Laraque well. And if along the way, having a guy like him in the club, Carbo will understand how to use him better. It's not Aron Downey.
