Yuppies and hipsters. The train station has a bit of a sketch element since there's direct trains to some dangerous areas but beyond that you are talking rents comparable to Manhattan and a young professional population. Nearby Brooklyn Heights reminds me a lot of Montreal actually (it's filled with hipsters).

Sounds ****in awful. 'Hipsters.' Americans since 1980 are not in any way hip, at all, ever.

Hey, it beats the "hipsters" here in DC, the city that tries too hard at being cool. At least in NY they've been established since gentrifying Brooklyn in the late '90's.

Kane was just fired from the Dynamo.

Can't find other sources for now... If that's true I sure am glad new management stayed far from any trades involving him.

I'd take Kane easily but he doesn't have a very good worth ethic and would probably be a disaster in Montreal. Worth the risk except what we'd have to give up for him would be absurd.

Work ethic just spoils the hole package.

I wouldn't. The stories about him scare me.

Some players don't workout too well overseas.

If I'm not mistaken, Spacek didn't have a contract right?

Still remember that the last thing we loved about Spacek was to see his contract end....and then we got Kaberle.

Thanks Jaro for all the great services. We almost had the chance to love you till the end. But hey, people are still trying to convince you that we got an amazing d-man for you so we never know...one day I might like you even more.

Kaberle hits 40 points and is hated but Spacek can't even string a pass together but is missed? Hfboards at its finest.

Spacek was largely useless for us except for one playoffs and the rest of the time injured because he was fragile. At least Kaberle gives us a deadly PP weapon but I hope Therrien doesn't use him a lot on ES (yikes.. don't know how that's going to work).

I don't know man. Somehow, I feel that for everybody who thinks DD's only reason to have been so succesful last year was because we sucked so much. Yet, that principle doesn't apply to Kaberle? The same Kaberle who was a liability on a Stanley Cup winning team? The same Kaberle who was called "one of my biggest mistake" by a GM?

I couldn't care less about Spacek the player. But would have gladly take his salary to improve my team and try to diversify it a little more as in getting some tougher d-man on the back end.

And for Kaberle...it's 31 points and -18. But I guess he had ALL the toughest matchups.
