Habs fans in awe of Hamrlik One of the guys that show up every night, he's a rock.
In today's Journal de Montréal, Marc de Foy writes that Canadiens defenceman Roman Hamrlik is in paradise playing in Montreal. While he is surprised by his team's performance this season, Hamrlik is even more impressed with the fans that have the Bell Centre rocking on a nightly basis. As the article says, he hasn't seen anything yet. Wait until the playoffs.
Hamrlik has played exceedingly well this season. He has been the most consistent d man we have. The only bad game he has had was the one in New York when we lost 4-3 to a Chris Drury breakaway in OT. Hamr finished -4 in that game, or something like that. Other than this, he has been a rock. Indeed, he gives the Habs a great top-three on the back end. The Habs, furthermore, made a great decision in signing him last offseason. I think it is one of the best signings of the offseason.
I know Hamrlik is happy about his decision to come to a madhouse for hockey. If he is impressed with this than a long playoff run will send him away for a hearing aid. I live 5000 km away and can feel the atmosphere at the Bell Centre through the television. Certainly, many times that I am watching I see the camera shaking quite violently. It must by an incredible experience to watch a game in such a rockin building. To the players, it must feel very special. It should make them realize that there is no better place to play hockey than in Montreal. If they happen to win a Cup than they will be treated with the greatest of respect in Montreal and by Habfans living around NA.
