Fire the stick-boy!

This kid's had 5 solid years to learn how to properly tape sticks for us and clearly hasn't progressed enough, its time for him to go! No wonder this team can't score! If it wasn't for the french media insisting we hire only french-canadien stick-boys maybe we could bring in an experienced anglo stick-boy who knows what he's doing. I'm tired of this franchise being a testing ground for rookie stick-boys! This franchise has been mediocre for too long, and its become increasingly clear that the stick-boy is the REAL problem. Until he's gone, we won't get better.

+1 and I really think you hit the nail on the head with that comment. That french stick boy has to go and be replaced by a Russian stick boy. I mean geeze, everyone knows that Russian sticks are taped left over right and not right over left, no wonder Kovy, Sammy, Perez and Kosty can't score. Unbeleiveable, I say fired Gainey too

And don't get me started on the kids holding the Habs flags at the beginning of the game.

seriously, I think the cleaner is more at fault. Who wants to play with that not-so-fresh feeling anyway?

Great point. The way they wave their flags is indicative of the way we'll be playing after, sloppy and uninterested with no rhythm...

And do you see how soft they are? Some players hit then with their stick when they come in and then those babies move as if they were surprised or hurt by it.....just pathetic.....Here we go, we found the problem!!!!

I think that's what Ribeiro meant when he said he was unfairly treated...he wanted to hold the flags and they didn't let him....

Players tape their own sticks, but I got the joke.

Personally I blame this season on the old secruity guard that chills beside the benches at the Bell Center.

Hmm, but that wouldn't explain on the road... unless all the security guards are in on it... my god, what have we uncovered here? It's a conspiracy, quick, someone call Mel Gibson!

The real root of the problem is the parking attendant. He's obviously not gaining the players trust when he parks their cars and it shows on the ice. I think he's lost the entire room, fire him first, then work your way the organizational ladder.

He's certainly well known. I can see how he could get on someone's bad side though.
