I tried that (not the closet thing) but intentionally leaving the room. They don't score every time I'm not there, it's that I'm not there every time they score. I'm just bad luck. I've gone to see the Habs play live 3 times in my life. They were outscored by a combined 15-3.
a question for Qui Gon Dave: How would you qualify D'agostini's work ethic on a long period? his he the type of player to give a good effort day in day out?
For the most part, his work ethic is fine. There are times when he goes to sleep in the defensive zone and sometimes he goes through patches where his play could use a kick up the rear, but for the most part, I don't have a problem with how hard he works. Most people probably know by now how awful his start to last year was, that was part effort, part playing through injury and he got some deserved stick for it. But he deserves credit for his end of season performance when half the Dogs roster gave up (perhaps wondering what to do the following season) but Matt was one of the ones who kept on playing. And he learned from his mistakes last season going into the start of this year. Last year when he was sent down, he got a bit grumpy and off his game, this year, well, look at his start: was 2nd in AHL scoring at one point I think, leads the Dogs in scoring, gives a good effort and has got a shot in the NHL.
His work rate over the start of this season has been good and I expect that to continue whether he sticks in the NHL or gets sent back down when people are healthy/pick up their games - he seems to have learned that lesson. For this year, I wouldn't worry but it will be interesting to see how he handles next year. Should be fine though, although he will have a learning curve to follow so it'll be important for some folks to remember the difference between production and effort.
lol im out of the loop a couple days and DANDOUILLON IS BACK??
i NEVER thoguht id see the day LOL! , i thought for SURE it was dead 2 years ago, AT LEAST OFFICIALY DEAD last year and sure enough, the beast makes an appearance on the last possible year it can be shown again, lol
i find it funny WTK never took the dandouillon avatar off and it looks like that paid off
EDIT : important note, i am not KNOCKING the pair, or either ones playing as of late or during tonights game, this is merely a joke for those who were there when dandouillion first made its appearance
Aw great, Pierre praising our former prospect Hollywood Hainsey on that play. Oh well, he deserves it. Would he be top 4 on today's team? Probably not, but he'd make our 3rd pairing solid and he's a decent QB on the PP.
