Now that the Pens have won - the truth has to be said.

Seems I did not push enough. The scary part is that people believing me means it is possible we see this kind of stuff for real.

I was hoping that claiming we should have drafted Croby, putting three non-Russian names in a Russian issue, making a Lafleur's son hint and the Balsilie stuff at the end would be enough. Wasn't.
Hahaha, don't worry. The few of us who are smart enough to get it on the first read will continue to chuckle at those dumb enough to miss the sarcasm.
By the way, the Lafleur joke is 11/10!

- If we-re going to draft Russians, at least draft good ones like Malkin not lousy Kostytsyns, Grabovski's and Plekanec.

- Team ownership should belong to ex stars. There are plenty of ex Habs great names that would be willing to be our own Mario Lemieux. Think about Lafleur or Beliveau or Patrick Roy.

- Our young superstars should be asked to live with great ex players. Imagine Price living with Guy Lafleur who would treat him like a son and teach him the basic values needed to be a proud Hab player.

- We should try and have Balsilie offer to buy and move us too. This will bring Bettman to do his best so we get good players and favorable refs so that we can build us a fanbase. Worked for the Pens...

I wasn't sure if you were serious, until I read the bolded part....


I haven't checked, but did many people bite?




But hey, you never know, you might not be kidding, and in that case, all over.

I resent this - People who missed the sarcasm were not dumb - they were just expecting the worst from the HFBoards. Stuff like this happens right now under our eyes in the media and on these boards.

That's why I tried to plant some "joke warnings" more or less visible.
- claiming we should have drafted Crosby and Malkin
- using three non Russian names (Plekanec?!!)
- reference to "Talbot's great hands"
- reference to Lafleur's son
- The whole Balsilie thingie was an extra over the top. Was supposed to work better.

Now it is probable that some people did not really read what they were reacting to and I can't really blame them.

I agree! And why not use this thread as an admission test for a new board, HfboardsL33T.com maybe, in which only the Few-of-you-smart-enough-to-get-it-on-the-first-read would be able to participate?

This thread is a waste of space. Can it be locked now?

Sorry dude, you might want to hang out on the Canadiens official message board for that. They locked great threads for no reason all the time over there. Worst mods of all-time.

No wonder its a wasteland.

Can we please let this thread die? Lot's of more nonsensical stuff have already been said in other threads.

You won't get those players for a grabbag of middle of the pack rookies, not even if they number 10 in all. And even if you did, there would be no guarantee of success. The Sens didn't make the playoffs with Heatley, Spezza, and Alfredsson.

No, the Habs wouldn't have done better than the Flyers against the Penguins last year. The Penguins had Hossa and Staal to go along with Crosby and Malkin and Price wouldn't have been able to stand up to them. On the reverse side, all the Penguins would have had to do was check Kovalev.

The Habs have drafted Quebecers but most of the ones they drafted were not very good. The Russians on the Habs are among the team's best players. Where's the francophone Markov?
