Habs get landmark Zamboni

Hi all. I found this today when I was poking around online. Turns out, the Habs just took delivery of the world's 10-thousandth Zamboni. Funny, I would have thought there were more of them made since the 50s.

As it says, the Canadiens were the first team to receive a zamboni. There's plenty of reasons this historical landmark would go to the Habs, cry about last season elsewhere.

To build a great team you need to build from the ice out.

I'm just saying how the team seems to put efforts in everything else except for establishing good management and icing a good hockey team but I'll take it elsewhere Mr. Internet policeman sir.

I just think it's a stretch to think this is some sort of conspiracy by Molson to avoid putting effort into building a good team. The Habs are one of the most historically important teams in any sport, and easily the most in hockey, the organization will be associated with moments like this regardless of how much of a disgrace the season was.

This doesn't excuse what happened, but it would be pointless to turn down a landmark occasion just because the team is a disappointment.

Yes I agree with you, companies cannot have different employees working in different departments, let alone having said employees working on different projects.

Everyone knows that only Pierre Gauthier worked for the Habs last year, and the idiot was too busy buying a zambony at the right time. That screwed up the entire season.

I really thought we got a new player from Switzerland for a second.

Hab fans have some of the biggest babies of all sports in the world. What do you expect. People could be discussing provincial politics and someone will cry about the Habs at some point. waa waa, its a game, get over it.

No, he's the consultant in charge of finding the right guy for the job. Apparently, the driver must be bilingual.
