Well, Canada's team looks good so far.

'Montreal typical' and 'playoffs referee fund' will be great for next year.

Saying "Lecavalier would've had that" on their missed chances.

Or St.Louis. Or Richards. Time flies! I think it would be fun if Habs fans just didn't show up for any rhetoric, banter, etc after some game. Crickets. Ghost town. Tumbleweeds blowing through all those threads on the other forums. Where'd they all go? (where in tarnation?) </ulterior motives>

I disagree on two grounds:

1) Some fans would still post, and then be overwhelemed by anti-habs posters and in turn make us lose that battle.
2) How it works on HF (and, in many ways, the world) is to always be on the offensive.

Tampa's down and out, win or lose tonight, we have to go for the jugular.

I was thinking of coming up with specific talking points for tonight's game but it's best to let it happen organically and to really come out strong against Boston. If we face Detroit, we won't need so much banter - they're cool.

Chris Lee is officiating, so we have a potential out if we lose. But would suggest NOT trying to capitalize on that if it happens. Instead, if something happens with the officiating against the habs, we can simply take the high road and say that such is sport and real fans understand that officiating is sometimes flawed. This would contrast nicely with the Bolts behavior following the canceled goal in game 3.

Hmmmm... yes, good luck with that!

Handshakes all around, we did it boys. If it weren't for our efforts, who knows how the series would've turned out.

So is it too early to prepare our Bruins banter?

Some Classic Embellishment City videos to get us going.

Banter 2014: This time it's still not personal
Pro-Habs talking points (repeat these until they're true)
  1. The Habs are the ONLY Canadian team in the playoffs. A true patriot would root for Canada.
  2. Team Canada's *STAR* Player, Carey Price, is a Hab. If you supported Team Canada in the Olympics, you'd support the Habs.
  3. One of the most underrated coaches in the league, Michel Therrien, preaches respect to all his players and gets them to play an attractive, no-frills kinda game.
  4. Great young players like Subban, Gallagher, Eller, Bournival, Beaulieu, Tinordi and Galchenyuk are relied upon for important duties at all times.
  5. Wily vets like Briere, Bourque, Bouillon and Murray bring stability to the lineup with their consistent play.
  6. Deadline acquisitions Weaver and Vanek go to show that we're truly Stanley Cup contenders
  7. Physical players like Parros, Moen, White, Emelin, Murray keep the other team on their toes and honest.
  8. Stars like Desharnais, Pacioretty, Vanek and 40goal man, Brian Gionta, can pretty much score at will. If you want high-octane hockey, you'd support the Habs

Anti-Bolts talking points (these are actually true)
  1. Steven Stamkos couldn't even make it to Team Canada, goes to show how overrated he is.
  2. Their star player and captain, Martin St-Louis, begged to be traded midway through the season. Tampa's a sinking ship.
  3. Does it even snow in Tampa Bay? Do they even have electricity in Tampa Bay? What's a Tampa, even?
  4. Overrated goalies - Ben who? Andres whom? Neither are half as experienced as our backup Peter Budaj.
  5. What kind of name is Teddy Purcell anyway??
  6. Sami Salo's going to have another hilariously inopportune injury.
  7. Ryan Malone. He just likes to swerve while he drives and carries cocaine on his person because he likes to prank the local police!
  8. John Cooper's overrated, he's only good compared to Barry Melrose. Also, he looks like a Llama apparently.

If you're ever caught in a debate, just fall back on the previous points and refuse to concede any points. Always remember the following:
  1. Every hit by the Lightning is dirty and had intent to injure
  2. Every hit by the Habs was clean and old school hockey
  3. The refs are CLEARLY biased against the Habs
  4. Bettman wants Tampa to win
  5. The Habs are obviously playing injured
  6. Stamkos' recovery was dubious, and cause for concern. The league turns a blind eye on steroid abuse.
  7. Every win by the Habs was a dominant win and it wasn't even close
  8. Every win by Tampa (yuck!) was by the skin of their teeth and the Habs woulda won if some of those bounces went our way
  9. HFBoards is against the Habs.
  10. We're the underdogs. We're always the underdogs.

The playoffs may only last a couple of weeks, we have to make the most of it. Happy posting!
Hilarious and evil all in a very tasteful way to real life hockey fans like us, just one thing the Stanley Cup parade doesn't come through Montreal in two weeks, another six weeks for that! I just had a conversation with the man upstairs and he assures me the Habs will make it through but he says the Bruins are pretty much screwed.lol Brave hearts like our Habs always persevere through, take that Bruins.
