If the Habs play like this all year I think it'll actually do some damage to the brand. We might be passionate here in Montreal, but we're not exactly known as the most patient fans in the world... they need to show us good things quickly. Basically, with the team they have, they need to be major overachievers.
Good news is the lockout is over. Bad news is our team is not very good.
It is great news. I can't imagine being that bad and yet because there would not have been a season, we would have less chances to win the 1st pick than tons of teams in this league. Now...we will have the chances we deserve...
This is not NHL level hockey not even AHL level. The habs are just more mediocre. This is what you get with 9 months off, the guys that didn't play in Europe don't know what to do and have forgotten how to play hockey. Wished the NHL could have stuck 3 or 4 pre-season games before this.
Hyperbole is overstatement or exaggerated language that distorts facts by making them much bigger than they are if looked at objectively. The media use it a lot to make stories seem more important or interesting than they really are (an apparently unfair boxing decision was described as the 'crime of the century' by one newspaper which seems excessive when compared to murder). It may be used to entertain or more seriously.
He has done it from waaayyy above the circles alot though. He just did it in the 2nd.
Anyone booing this team after 2 periods into the 1st game after a 1 week “training camp” is pathetic.
First, there's absolutely NOTHING to be thrilled about. We could lose 6-4 for all I care but at least, would be great to have 2 good plays in a row which we don't have. Then, people are just seeing the rest of what last year's was all about. And then, it's again, a terrible Leafs team. Do the math.
