Jacques Demers was "thinking of Mr. Beliveau" that night!

LOL.

Jacques Demers, god bless his heart, is a really kind man, but he's so prone to hyperbole it's unbelievable.

I think the RDS crew believed it would come out that the Kostitsyns & Hamrlik (remember he was involved in this?) were really involved deeply with organised crime, and that would have been a real disgrace. But what came out was nothing really.

Turns out they were Marcel's gloves.

Sorry, I could have explained this better but I didn't.

We would have sent them O'Byrne, Lapierre, Grabovski and a 2nd round pick. They wanted Higgins at the last second. We said no.

Turns out what we would've given them would have been better. A solid 3rd pairing D man with size. A 3rd line agitator who can chip in points. A legitimate second line center.

We could have gotten rid of Higgins. It would have made the Gomez trade impossible and we'd still have McDonagh.

Without Gomez they wouldn't have signed Gionta or Cammalleri.

Gomez, Gionta & Bourque vs McDonagh & Higgins. Right now everyone would take McDonagh but Gionta & Cammy made the Habs competitive.

If Glen Sather came up to me and told me if I ate a 5lbs fresh pile of steaming cow dung he'd do a return trade, I would do that for this team.

That's how bad that trade was, I couldn't care that Gionta and Cammalleri made the Habs competitive. McDonagh-Subban could have been dominant for 10+ years.

Was there anyone around here 2002 or before, or am I the only one left? Those were some pretty dark yet humorous days on HF.

Remember when I was a regular?

Oh yeah the everywhere cocaine thread was hilarious.

The summer when we signed all those free agents and the months prior when Vinny was "a lock" in everyone's lineup, that was gold.

A personal favourite is when I met "Coldplay" in real life and we had a full conversation about HF before realizing we knew each other from here
Also, what happened to H10H? Why was he banned? He was one of my favourites. Someone can PM me or something. Curious if anyone remembers me.
