On another note

Read at HIO, Pat Hickeys column, that scalpers were saying there were tonnes of tickets left for the game. A home opener? Premium game?

Have we finally hit the wall? Are fans of Montreal finally going to say "PRICES are too high!!!"

"Ice a boring little team that gets pushed around and we won't watch"

Good on you Montreal people.....Good on you.


I live in Nashville and can only see the Habs once every two years. I bought tickets a few seasons ago for myself and a bunch of friends in hopes to get them into hockey a bit. $125.00 a ticket a row back from the glass. 2-0 Preds win and the most boring effort from the Habs I'd ever seen.

Home opener 2012 and that's what they bring? 400.00? Hopefully there will be changes. This team needs help.

It's been more then 3 games. It's been years......and don't bring up last two, three year play-offs. It's not much fun watching your team score one or two goals and then weather the storm blocking shots for 45 minutes.

Maby it's the new NHL, but I'd rather have a team that hits, protects each other scores goals and is fun to watch even if results are the same ore a little worse.

This kind of play has been going on for far too long.

Looked like a legit penalty to me. He tripped the guy with his stick.

I sincerely hope so. This is the only act that will change the culture of this organization.

I'll give the team ten games before I make any wild evaluations of the roster. I will say though Cole needs to step it up.
Agreed. I've been watching Gionta as well and the play often seems to fizzle out as soon as he gets the puck.

He clearly knocked the puck back to the defense first.

Well, if Scalpers had tickets, then that means the Bell Center sold them right?
If the Scalpers didn't re-sell them, maybe they're boosting prices up as well. You think they're selling it at the same cost?
The 400$ ticket is for some of the best in the house. The ticket prices went up, but it isn't that bad, it's only a couple more bucks unless I'm mistaken.

The game didn't sell out because the team lacks enforcers.

The club tweeted the day before that there were still some tickets available

The difference this year, between a regular game and a premium game are way out to lunch, looks like around 35% higher for a premium game, which is a real slap to most fans...a cash grab by the organization, and if people pay, then they will continue the practice, if the people don't pay, then they will stop the practice...at the end of the day though, the team cannot put forth a brutal effort like last night, and not expect to be taken to task for it...if the team plays well, ticket prices are a moot point...

yup thats what I like about our fanbase...were not mindless drones like Leafs fans. If the product on the ice is garbage and we suck, people will stop going to the games until something is done about it.

No they won't, the fans still turned out when we were icing Bulis, Dackell, Audette and Kilger... and other garbage teams. Stop trashing other teams, and their fans, like we are somehow above being annoying, classless and morons.

I mean, trashing Leaf fans for turning out, when they haven't had a successful season in years, doesn't even make sense.. it proves the opposite.

During the Dackell's and Bulis type of years, the Habs had 19,000 or so show up, not 21,273 As for the Leafs fans you have to give them alot of credit for showing up!

I got my season tickets right after the lock out and ive seen a change as far as excitement goes. Just not as fun going to the Bell Centre. I noticed a change as soon as Molson bought,seems more subdued...music, they dont announce the sell out crowd anymore, etc.

Last night was an average performance. We are going to be hovering at .500 until we get cammalleri back, and spacek, and campoli, and that other guy who might be a little bit important. But we can play better than we did tonight, and those early penalties just ****ed us. We'll be better against colorado.

Honestly, my biggest concern is with Gionta right now. Could've scored at least 3 goals as of now, but no. He helped the opposing teams score about 3. Wake the efff up Capinato Gionta! Wake the efff up!


Wake Up for ****'s sake!

That's really sad. To me, it seems like this regime is much more bottom line oriented than Gillette was.

Is Mark Cuban interested in owning a hockey team?

I'm not worried about Cole longer term, but man, if he is out of shape, he's gonna learn fast in MTL that it won't wash. This ain't Carolina baby. Maybe he cruised the the first ten games all the time. Not here.

He's getting a wake up call. Be interesting to see how he reacts. Bet he has tons of pride, and he'll start getting in shape alright. Hope he feels a bit like a rookie. That would be good for him.

He's being challenged, and good athletes will step up to that. I bet he will.
