what, pink then ?

the idea is to create something that will stand out.

black despite meening death also means emptiness. Since we all feel gutted today, I feel it's a rather fitting choice

I can't believe people here actually want the team to sink down to the Bruins' level. It's not the team's style and I hope it never will be. Beat them on the scoreboard, where it counts.

I'd much rather have people wearing Pacioretty shirts. Much cooler.

I'm all for honouring your own but black is known for honouring the dead and Patches isn't dead, thankfully.

I would hope that Hab fans would at the very least ban going to the NHL.com website. Its not much but I don't want to have my "click" generate any profits to the league until they show they are serious with discipline.

Habs should play the game how they play, by beating the Bruins.

Payback is a beatch, and it will happen some way to the Bruins again, trust me. And it doesn't mean it is coming from the Habs.

Campaign: Three Building Blocks

Thanks I have already received some feedback. Can I make some suggestions? Build a campaign with the following.

1) Message and Demands: This can't be vague (e.g. "We're angry and want something done"). It must be clear and concise (e.g. "NHL has insufficiently punished violent offenders and so tacitly approved this sort of play") This followed by a demand (e.g. "Habs management forfeit the March 24 game", "NHL institute a specific rule change", "Bettman/Campbell removed" etc.)

2) Supporters: Who supports the message and demand. (Some would say that quality is better than quantity, easy to rack up thousands of unverifiable online signatures but if, say, Bobby Orr or Steve Moore or even a non-hockey respected public figure were to get on board it would garner greater attention)

3) Target and Delivery: Simple ways grassroots supporters can target and deliver their message and demands to create exposure and pressure. This can is what some have been discussing. (e.g. could be wearing black at a game). This is where the creativity comes in. Also, NHL cares about revenue, target that.

All three of the above should be integrated into the campaign. So for example: Message (1) is "The NHL is too lenient on violence causing serious injuries, the demand is "Colin Campbell be removed"; and (2) the supporters are "Reclaim the Game" including some hockey alumni, health professionals and public figures; the (3) the target is Official Beer of the NHL, Molsons (yes I see the irony that the Molson family owns the Habs, all the more reason to involve them from an exposure POV -- why are we paying a fortune for Bell Centre suds that sponsor a league which lets animals break our players' necks?). Naturally, the delivery is a boycott, easy to buy something else at the bar or depanneur. Maybe it spreads across NA to include Coors etc.

Give this a few months and when summer rolls around and Molsons sales are flat you better believe the campaign message would be out there and demands would be addressed.

The above is purely hypothetical for discussion purposes only regarding how concerned Montreal Canadiens fans might address the issue of safety in hockey in the wake of the serious injury to Max Pacioretty.

Demanding Colin Campbells and Mike Murphys resignation - Please Don't Merge

There has been alot of talk as to what exactly us as fans can do. Now that Pacioretty has spoken out, and the media tide has taken a turn, I think it is time we band together and call for the resignation of Colin Campbell and Mike Murphy. I think this to be a realistic goal, and an attempt to reach it will at the very least shed alot of light on the, at best, incompetence of these two.

If someone could put together some sort of petition together I think we could maybe actually get something done here.

add Gary Bettman to this list please............

The old boy culture must change in the NHL. A player will literally get killed during a game - soon.
