I know. But I guessed there was a difference between tweaking the facts to make it look as neutral as possible and then qualify the goal as "heroic".

It's a bit far stretched because obviously I'm stilled pissed, but they make it look as if price was dumb by stating he "believed" he covered the puck, as we know for a fact he "knew" he had the puck covered.

Anyway I know it's useless ranting. Let's say it was good to see Price break his stick.

We need a trade. I believe we should trade Cammalleri for another winger who's much stronger with the puck and a better physical presence. Any suggestion?

i don't want to see cammy go, but:

so the short straw is cammy

The Habs are the #1 most hated team in Boston across all sports now. But where else in the U.S. are we hated so much (maybe not on Boston's level) that it could compare to anything remotely resembling even a Toronto-level of hatred? (I don't think Toronto hates us that much anymore)

Let's face it, Habs didn't deserve to win this one, but with a little luck and more effort, it could've been ours. Price with the fit is gawld.
Also, Cammalleri needs to have a little pep talk in a dark parking lot involving baseball bats and large italians.

Is there a more one-sided "rivalry" in the game than Montreal-Pittsburgh?

You mean like a pick-up baseball game with some country-men? Yeah that sounds really good for his morale.

Yeah the Pens' fans really like to hate on Subban and Price way too much.

I didn't notice. Somehow it's less frustrating to know that it was written by someone who knows the habs, and not by a random dude who couldn't care less about making the habs look bad.

Pittsburgh hates us but we don't hate Pittsburgh that much.

As for one-sided rivalries, I can name 2 more that equally one-sided as Montreal-Pittsburgh:

Senators-Wild
Canucks-Leafs

We beat the pens when they were the defending champs. We beat the Caps when they were the best team in the season. We were one goal away from beating the Bruins last year despite being heavily crippled. I don't see anybody, not even habs fans, saying we are a top tier team.

The pens are good, top tier without both Crosby and Malkin? I disagree.

Adding Michalek and Martin was good for their defensive depth. Trading for Neal was great as well for the wing.
But they take a huge step down without both these superstars.
I think they would remain above average, but not top tier.

Otherwise you could say we have a top tier team with a healthy roster.


Btw, find me one top tier team without any sexy names on it.

With Cammalleri out of the line-up, we win this game.. Directly responsible on the second goal blowing his defensive coverage, coasting and cheating all game long.

not surprised by NHL's coverage of the game. Shows yet again why NHL is and will always remain a second tire league in terms of professionalism. When umpires blow calls in MLB, the league and the umpires will come out and admit it. This does not happen nearly enough in hockey. I would like to see NHL release a statement admitting that the ref blew the call.

Do you have any idea how much heat NHL refs get game by game?

From the NHL? I've never heard of them facing any disciplinary action for bad calls. What did Tim Peel get after the Mon-NYR game?

so he was responsible for one goal according to you and thus is responsible for the loss despite Montreal still leading.

So why wasnt it Weber's fault he let Staal walk right around him and his fault they lost? Why wasnt it Gill's fault for allowing Neal to whack away at Price when he has the puck covered? Thus the game is his fault?

So much fail with what you write

And I think that the French-language version will also be like that if Basu wrote the French-language version as well.

Our sexy names are Markov (one of the most underrated yet a true #1 when Subban is borderline #1) and Price; with both we can hold our own in the playoffs. Without Markov it's more questionable but this team (with Spacek) was 1 goal away from eliminating the eventual Cup winners.

No, because there's a difference between a team sneaking into a bottom playoff berth on the strength of a couple of key players, and a team solidifying a top playoff berth early and maintaining it to the end on the strength of basically the entire roster in the absence of key players. I'm sure you can guess which one is the Habs and which one is the Penguins.

But if you want an example of a top tier Habs roster, look at 2007-08, and the number of players that went on to fill important roles on their new teams (some continue to do so). That was a "top-tier" roster in the making that year, no doubt. Basically, imo "top-tier" is defined as much by the guys occupying the "bottom" 3 lines as those on the top one.

Sexy is in the eye of the beholder, I guess you could say. And it's obvious that many (if not most) people's eyes here have not beheld much that occurs outside the Bell Centre, so they don't recognize a really good roster unless there are names they're familiar with from Sportscentre clips.

I come in peace and I am by no means a Habs fan, in fact I hate the Habs since I am a Sharks fan as well as a Leafs fan and I am not here to start any crap with you guys, I'm here in your defense, lol. But man, you guys shouldn't have lost that game. Well, not off of Letangs goal anyways. I think this for two reasons.

1. I think most of us know and can agree that Price had the puck covered. I watched the replay and the puck wasn't behind his glove or pushing it against his pad with his glove. He CLEARLY had his glove COVERING the puck. So in my opinion, that was BS.

2. The rule clearly states that a player cannot be on the ice with any blood on any of their equipment. Letang CLEARLY had blood on his jersey. Apparently the Pens' equipment manager tried to clean the blood out/off of his jersey but he obviously didn't finish the job anyways so, that's also BS.

This one I guess I have to give a pass on, as apparently they checked with the officials first to see if it was acceptable enough to wear. Should the officials have let it "pass inspection"? Well, I guess that's the debate. It's a stupid rule anyway, and just one of those things the league has seemingly implemented to avoid portraying hockey as a contact sport where noses, lips, and teeth are occasionally bloodied.

No. The NY Yankees are because far more Boston fans follow baseball than hockey. The reasons for the hatred are identical and they go back to the early 1920s, when the Sox made the supreme blunder of trading Babe Ruth to the Yankees. It took the Sox 86 years to win their next World Series.
