For you the only definitions of "better effort" is a win Man I know youre type. You ain't there for the losses you shouldn't be there for the wins. Go watch some curling. I'm done.



Yayyyyy we had more shots and hits than them! Whoope! Hey, they were missing a few keys in order to win the game such as... actually scoring on the PP, some heart, some passion and some intensity. Good luck winning without those things. I support the team no matter what, but they deserved to get booed tonight. That's fact. And apparently for you, anybody who thinks that, sucks as a fan.

I think Columbus just outplayed us. Simple as that.

They got bodies in front of every puck and played a perfect defensive trapping style game. Plus, their goalie was great. You can't win 'em all.

Nothing to panic about, we just need to rebound next game.

Well, if you think about it... no goals on Bob Gainey night could be seen as kind of a tribute couldn't it?

The ceremony was pretty good but you always expect it from the Habs organization.They always seem to get these ceremonies right.I did get a chuckle though from one of the comments on the Gainey thread over at the Bruins board where one Bruins fan that Gainey was only a "average" player.I guess he missed the part where the Russians once said that Gainey was the most complete player in the world.Just another bitter Bruins fan.....

CBC's after hours got Chelios on right now and he just congratulated Gainey on getting his number retired tonight and thanked him for showing him what leadership was all about. Trading Chelios was one of the biggest mistakes Habs management ever did.Also...The just showed that it as been 6 years already (Feb 24) since Team Canada won the Olympic Gold medal in Salt Lake City.

You make it sound they're lying on their ass sipping margaritas. They tried, they just got beaten by the better team. It's never a guarantee win so if you're team looses, you don't show a lack of support and respect for athletes sacrificing their bodies for your entertainment.

As for the booing, watching you're team loose is frustrating for anybody. But way to kick them while they're down by letting them know you think they suck. True fans support the team through wins and losses. Get that in your head.
From a CBJ fan...I have to agree. I watched the game and was so surprised to hear the fans booing to that extent. Come to Columbus and watch a team that after 7 years is still not making the playoffs. Yes, you will hear some booing during a lackluster game near the end of the season, when the guys are not working hard, but even with the disappointments we've had year after year, we recognize our team for their hard work and efforts the majority of the time.
