My friend who plays for Le Vézinet just came back for the holidays, it was nice to learn about how the league works, that parisian girls are b!tches and that you have to watch where you walk in Paris.

Please keep it in English please (though I would prefer a French topic :p)
I'm fortunate enough to live in Tours and I can watch Perna and Subrani play in every home game...
Both are very good this season. Perna even was invited by Berlin for the Spengler cup, though he didn't play. He's our captain and shows tremendous speed and a lot of passing skills. He can finish and plays a lot for us, more than 30 minutes, on PP and PK.
Subrani plays a little less but he's also a huge part of our team. He can score, steal pucks, battle along the boards...
I'm pretty sure both of them will lead Tours to the Magnus for next season and hopefully stay with us.

We have just play against Tours this evening and Perna recorded 2 points (1 G, 1 A). Montpellier Vipers loose 2-3. But it's a very rough player. The game was also very rough with 2 expulsions and a general fight.

I'll be going to the Rouen - Mont Blanc game on Feb. 17 in Rouen.
I'm pretty excited to see what hockey out here is like.

Just watched Caen lose to Briancon by a score of 2-3. It was my first exposure to French hockey since I moved here and admit that I was surprised by the number of players that are from France on each roster. The game had a definite "European' influence (more East-West play and less hitting) compared to the hockey I am used to watching in Western Canada. Overall, it was a fun time and you cannot beat the price of only 6 Euro.

I attended Rouen's 7-2 victory over Mont Blanc last night here in Rouen. Clearly, the level of play is no NHL hockey, but it was a fun and fast-paced game and enjoyable to watch. The lack of TV time-outs really does a lot for the flow of the game. Also the crowd was amazing. Sold out, and very into the action. The 8 of us that went as a group all seemed to have a good time.

I have a question. How exactly do playoffs work in Ligue Magnus? Is it NHL-style but with a single conference (ie. 8 teams make it, 1v8, 2v7...etc.)? How long are the serieses? Best of 3? I know that Rouen plays 2 home games the first weekend of March to kick off the quarterfinals, but we're busy that weekend. We'd like to go see a game again if they make it deeper though, so I was wondering how the format worked.

Hoping I can get an answer over on this board.

Anyone know of any bar(s) or elsewhere where I can watch NHL playoff games live in Paris or the surrounding areas? Any help would be much appreciated.

It's impossible for you to watch a NHL playoff game in France. Because with the time difference, when the game starts in north america, here it's 1 AM and bars must close in this hour.
Try to find a friend that owns the channel "Canal Plus" or the satellite channel "NASN".

There was a bar called "The Moose Head" in Paris, in 2003/2004. Don't know if it's still open. As you can guess it's a Canadian sports bar, I use to go there after games with several guys on the team I played for. It was great to have a few cold ones and snack on chicken wings, especialty when you get home sick. They played recorded NHL games. Not live , but better than nothing.

A few months ago, I met a friend in Paris over the weekend and we watched a live HNIC Leafs-Habs game, which started at 1AM, at a bar near Notre Dame Cathedral. I believe it was called 'The Great Canadian Bar' or something similar. They showed the whole game and we met a bunch of other Canadians watching the game there too. It was on NASN because they have the rights to broadcast NHL games in France, but one needs a satellite dish to receive that channel.

I played for Toulouse in the late 70's. Anybody out there from that team? How about guys like Claude LeMarchand, Toubib Dunglas, Jacou Pujol, Denis Sero, Phillipe or Jean Michelle Benezeth and Pete Noiseux?

Unfortunatley I can't help you, wasn't born and never went to Toulouse
Maybe more chances on a french forum, passionhockey.com
As we're trying to publish a book on the history of french hockey, your experience could be interesting...
Log on hockeyarchives.info and you'll have an interesting discussion with the webmaster.

The rest of the country must hate Brest being in their division

Are Div 1 and Div 2 divided into North and South divisions?

The team of Anglet Hormadi is too far away, at the border with the Pays Basque. but they have a arena facing the beach; very awesome

Right, The division 1 and 2 are divided into geographic division (North and South) but for the next season the division 1 will go back into a single division with 14 clubs.

For the level of french Ligue Magnus, it's near the ECHL level with good formatives teams like Grenoble (the former team of Christo Huet) or Rouen. Unfortunaly, best french players go away to best championships like Swiss LNA and Swedish Allsvenkan
