Habs dressing room to be decontaminated tomorrow

Carbo just said it's the worst case of FLU he has EVER seen.
At least half the team has it and it's getting worse.

The team rooms and all equipment and water bottles and towels, in fact everything, will be decontaminated tomorrow, entire team to stay home tomorrow.

For Carbo to have openly talked about it on camera it MUST BE VERY BAD. Lets hope it's not one of those "new bad bugs" that takes a month to get over.

Bye the way Grabo still looks good, seemed to take good faceoffs and is very creative. SO far looks more dangerous then Pleks.

Good face-offs? He was something like 28% out there.

In fact I remember one shift where they had Kovalev take the faceoff instead of Grabovski, who played on the wing and then shifted center after the draw.

Sucks to hear about the severity of the bug though...I was hoping with just one player (Plekanec) out today because of it that it would be going away, although I think it was pretty obvious there were some sick players on the ice for the Habs. I guess we'll wait and see.

I hope people cut the team a little slack with the recent slump. Playing that sick is not an easy thing to do and I can't imagine playing that the NHL level being that sick.

We should put our used towels/bottles in the visitor's dressing room. Hopefully it'll spread around the league while the habs become immune from fighting it.

Ryder and Rivet looked almost transparent out there. I thought they should have initiated scrums and hugged the opposition as much as possible.

Man, I can't wait until this flu thing is over. Hopefully the slump follows it.

True.


Rivet was almost dead. On one shift I remember him in his zone didn't able to take the puck 1 feet in front of him, it take him like 3 seconds, look horrible this year, so when he's sick, its damn brutal.

Why? Was Paris Hilton in the locker room?

The positive is we probably infected Washington, New York and New Jersey during the games, and they will in turn give the flu to all the teams they play and so on. So once we're done with this we'll always face teams with the flu for the next month...

A new method, or methods, for the Habs at this juncture in the season, to anger the opposition and reduce their future chances of success :

1. Cough in their faces, especially their goalie's.

2. Do not wash hands after a trip to the loo. When you are out on the next shift, face wash the opposition with your bare hand.

3. Offer the opposition your locker room.

4. Give them contaminated towels and water bottles.

5. Do not filter the air into the opposition's dressing room.

In all seriousness, I never imagined it was this bad. I think Johnson said to Healy that this was the worst case of the stomach flu he has seen within a single team in all the years he has been in the league. Therefore, I will cut the team some slack as many players appear to be catatonic out on the ice.

Each player has their own water bottle with name printed on it? Is this how it works?

This is how it should work.

That's how it works (their number, not their name), but I think they're just taking extra precaution.

Yeah, I hope he's OK. That guy takes so many shots to the face you'd think his name was 50 cent or Jenna.

The Canadiens were also missing centre Radek Bonk, who was hit in the face by a puck on Saturday. Carbonneau said it does not appear to be a long-term injury.

I sympathize with the players. I had the GI bug about a month ago and just walking upstairs in my house made me super nauseous. I couldn't even watch TV...just laid in bed in agony for almost 48 hours. I can't imagine them playing 60 minutes of hockey. It took me at least a full week after I had it to get my legs back in my beer league hockey. It's a very nasty bug so we should cut the players some slack.

no doubt

I'd like to know how many players are playing through this thing.

I know alot of teams battle the flubug each year but I've never seen it make such an impact.
