The media is sometimes too much, but it sure makes it entertaining even in dark time like this for our Hockey club.

Actually MAG and Eric Engels get appreciated quite a bit. If you're waiting for a sane person to come on here with accolades about how great Rejean Tremblay is then you're going to wait a long long time.

I will always recognize the guy for the lance et compte series he wrote (the old ones), what was pure masterpiece.. But other than that, he is just an old frustrated guy ranting about the org. as soon as he has the chance to.. He thought he was over everything but Im happy he is no more working around of this team.. Thx to Gainey to have put some order in the house..

did someone catch this turd tonight on le match? please correct me if i'm wrong but did he just say (speaking about Gary Carter) that teammates were so jealous of Carter that they would be 'soulager' to hear that he's dying right now? if so, it's one of the most incomprehensible, callous, imbecilic assumptions i have ever heard anyone make

You mean he'll say all kinds of garbage to get his articles read. He is a tabloid journalist who uses big words to try and make himself look smart.

Oh noes! Somebody on the internet has a different opinion! Clearly he must be Hitler/stupid/trolling! Because no other way would anyone ever think an opinion different of mine!!!!

I used to like Tremblay's chroniques on Paul Arcand and used to listen to it religiously. But it grew tired of it as of late. When it grew into more insides jokes or personal anecdote over talking hockey, I just decided it wasn't worth catching at all cost.

But I used to be quite entertained by him. Kinda like how someone is entertained by Cherry or Edward. He voices an opinion that is worth hearing and considering, even if you weight it wrong most of the time.

The best way to promote stupidity and dogmatism is to refuse to listen to other opinions and quiet diverging voiced. Better listen to all and make your own idea in the end.

I have no problem with diverging opinions but he is always barking the same tune with separatist or political undertones.

I can't comment on Réjean as I haven't read him in years. I can only imagine that he is still whining about everything.

Pierre Cantin is even worst. I just can't stand him. Not only is he as whinny as Réjean, he is a populist whiner. He is also a pretentious *****, pretending to be this great sports connaisseur because he writes about tennis or ski twice a month. He is terrible, worst than Gagnon.

Long live Mathias Brunet, the lone professional at LaPresse!

I came to post this. He's probably the most insightful and interesting sports journalist in Montreal. And he covers the NHL, not just the Habs. I love reading him. I don't know if he qualifies as a columnist though, he's more of a reporter.

For all the hate Réjean gets (and I'm part of those people), you have to admit he can write very well. As for as substance goes, he has very little and most of his article are feces. But he's no worse than a lot of these guys on l'Antichambre or (RIP) CKAC. At least, unlike all these guys, he masters the style. He's just trolling big time and people fall for it.

As for those saying they like to read the opinion of the posters here.... Wow... Seriously? Don't get me wrong, I come here because I enjoy the discussion, but 75% of the content in the Habs section is overreacting drama queens that have the EXACT same kind of line of thinking as those journalist, but unlike them, they're not even paid to say those things! Worrisome.

There are some very good posters though. Whom I enjoy exchanging ideas with. But to say that it's overall better than the crap you read in sports media, eh... The ratio good/bad is probably worse here.

I don't think I'd be mistaken if I said you have yet to earn Rejean Tremblay's annual income in your lifetime.

If someone has a different opinion from yours on the internet, it doesn't automatically make him a "troll" even if it might seem marginal from what you're used to. Don't get fooled into thinking that what you perceive there necessarily applies to real life. Ron Paul is popular on the internet, yet even in the republican primaries it doesn't translate too well.

I will end this post with a quote from the great Chael Sonnen :
"I still admire Steven Seagal. Anyone that can be that self-possessed without doing a damn thing to earn it, knows something that I don't."
Rejean Tremblay is an idiot. As simple as that. What makes him an idiot? The opinions he constantly brings forth. His clear agenda against the Habs since he was refused an interview. If you followed him long and read him long enough, you know he's still bitter about that and his opinions are clearly influenced by it.

There is never a positive thing to say about the Habs. We could win a cup and he'd still crap on some things.

HarryI, if I remember correctly, is a doctor. So, not only, I'm assuming, is he doing pretty well, but his contributions to society far exceeds those of RT. If he's not a doctor, then I'm out to lunch.

You mean nationalist. And yes, he's political in many of his commentaries, but it's not an opinion that is considered even marginal. A great deal of people actually think politically when they think of the Habs, and Tremblay's opinion reflect a strong undercurrent in our society.

Covering your ears and shouting won't make these disappear. And just because you disagree with them, in itself, doesnt mean there is nothing worth hearing or at least considering in your tought process, even if it's to be rejected. But you will have heard a new side to the argument.

Listening only to commentators who say things you wanna hear breed weird mentalities. Just look at Edward or Fox News.

He is right up there with Tony Marinaro imo.

There are plenty of good sports writers/analysts in Québec (Dubé, Mathias Brunet, Gagnon, Ladouceur, Lavoie…) but R. Tremblay and Marinaro are amongst the worst imo: biased (one against English; the other against French), sour and very large egos. That being mentioned, both are Habs fans so I won't demonize them!

If you don't want to read what certain posters have to say, put them on your ignore list.

If you don't want to read the content of a particular thread, ignore it.

Posting in a thread solely to complain about "the trolls" will only earn you an infraction. If you think a post is trolling, report it.

In addition, calling someone a troll is considered flaming and is grounds for an infraction, so don't say you weren't warned.

Now, back to the topic at hand, if you please.

Engels also blogs for CTV Montreal's Habs Hub, but he primarily updates on Hockeybuzz. Honestly, as bad as Eklund's "rumours" are, he's got a strong stable of Habs Bloggers. Only reason I visit the site.

The problem with Rejean Tremblay is that he's a bitter old man. I like to read him when he's not talking about the Habs/the French issue. He published articles on amateur sports that won multiple awards and rightfully so. The guy is a great writer, however he lets his personal biases and frustrations run rampant in his articles and it's sad.

Since he was banned from the Habs' team plane by Bob Gainey, he's been on an anti-Habs crusade and jumps on the bash-wagon every chance he has. "Fefan this, lack of respect for French culture that," it's always the same thing.

Actually it got me thinking that we should start a thread to boycott any shows or papers that have Rejean Temblay or Bertrand Raymond to appears on. I would love this to actually make an impact on those 2 bozo's
