Wow, with this many excuses for losing I guess there's no blame to be put on the Canadiens? You sound like a whiner, a sore loser.
The way I see it, it's more reasons to beat the crap out of their palyers. A good old fight to clean everything.
Yeah, and the Monteral fanbase is just so classy, isn't it? Boo'd Roy out of Montreal, Boo the U.S National Anthem .. , a nice Riot in 93, ah the list is long and distinguished when speaking of the Montreal faithful.
Canadian National Anthem have been booed b4. Riot = Passionnate. We boo players who play like crap, I don'T care if they do good elsewhere. Are you ashamed to be a canadiens fan? I'm not.
People in Detroit, Vancouver, Minnesota, Boston etc would disagree.
They can disagree all they want. We all know what matters in the end. Stanley Cups and fan base.
If they do anything remotely silly, I wonder if Ribs will give them a scolding, as he zips off on a linechange? Mumble a few mean words under his breathe, while hiding behind Souray?
Call me intolerant, call me over-reactive, call me upset over 3 consecutive losses; I don't care.
I hate Carolina.
When I see Eric Staal's face, it makes me want to puke. When I see referees trying to give game 3 to Carolina with non-calls or weak calls in overtime, it makes me want to punch a hole in the wall. When I hear the annoying goal buzzer in Carolina it makes me violently lunge and reach for the nearest mute button. When I see Justin Williams high-sticking two of our best players or Brind'amour constantly running into our goaltender, regardless of whether a penalty is called on the play, I want to see one of our players throw a few dozen punches in their direction. When I see the Adams' or any other Carolina player pesting around and feeling right at home on OUR ice, it makes me wish someone would just step up and welcome them to Montreal with a shoulder-to-face concussion. When I see Erik Cole making the trip to Montreal to encourage his teammates, it makes me want to walk up to the Bell Centre and scream at him that he ain't welcome here.
And you know what I hate most about Carolina? Their fanbase. I know it's not nearly as bad as it was last time around, but I'm sick of the media-glorified "little fanbase that could" crap. Screw them, this is Montreal, don't come telling us Carolina fans are this or that. I don't care. I don't want to see or hear anyone defending that pathetic fanbase.
This is our city. This is the hockey capital of the worldifToronto didn't exist , regardless of what anyone would have you believe. We are proud hockey fans. We eat, sleep, bleed hockey.
I dare any Carolina player to try to finish his play when he hears Bégin's, Komisarek's, Bouillon's, Murray's footsteps tonight... I dare any Carolina fan to even so much as lift his eyes up from the ground when he walks downtown...
