A monkey post

January 23, 2010

I’ve been so bad with this blog that wordpress had logged me out, and when I tried to log back in it called me names. Like “Maxim Lapierre.” The Habs were so bad last week that I decided I’d rather drink bleach thank think about them, much less write about them.

But lots of things have been going on.

Jean Beliveau is a great man. “A king among men” is not enough and “a god among men” is no exaggeration. And if you disagree with me I’ll come find you and fight you. Get well soon, Le Gros Bill.

The Habs have parted ways with Laraque after discovering that Carey can be their enforcer. Laraque is known as a nice guy, so this sucks for him, but it really doesn’t suck for the Habs. I don’t know what Gainey and Martin meant when they said he was a distraction, and I don’t care. This doesn’t make the team one bit softer than they already were.

Mike Cammalleri and Maxim Lapierre got into a confrontation of sorts at practice. Good for them, somebody needed to clear the air. In a related story, Senator (!!!) Jacques Demers is still wiping his eyes.

The Habs beat New Jersey. In New Jersey. Really. I swear.

Even with their depleted line-up, New Jersey is in a whole other league than the three monkey teams that most recently beat the Habs. But the Habs worked hard for 60 minutes (I’m going to call it the Darche Effect) and were patient and, most importantly, DISCIPLINED.

Still… it’s kind of disheartening to see that Fat Brodeur has the liberty to leave a net wide open when the Habs (or any opponents) are in the O-Zone because his team will just take care of the situation and clear the puck right out without even blinking.

How cute is Brian Gionta pushing around guys bigger than him? He almost went to the NJ bench a couple of times, if you noticed. Also, his presence or lack thereof on the top two lines makes a huge difference.  GIONTA FOR CAPTAIN.

Speaking of which, I think it’s time the Habs got themselves a captain, and not just because those clowns on l’Antichambre said so. I feel like a real captain would have made a difference in the Ottawa and New York disasters.

And finally…

Fuck you, Fat Gui, you fucking fatass. Nothing more than a glorified couch cushion in Montreal and magically you’ve learned how to work hard?

I guess it’s hard to be too mad when the Habs got superstar potential in return. Pouliot is the kind of player the Habs can’t usually even dream of getting. He gon be good.

    I had some big, earth-shattering retort but fuck it.

    Fat Gui shat the bed, and the Habs turned him into a great top 6 guy.

    I hope the Habs can get the Boogeyman out of Minny, now that they’re familiar with each other.

    chemistry wasn’t right, that is all. i think people need to get over it.

    and yes, we got Pouliot. seriously, he’s a quiet superstar in the making and a hard worker.

    which means yay.

    HAHAHA!!! Chemistry?? Such an overused excuse. That fat fuck couldn’t even skate. Unless you were going to use chemistry to start a fire under his lazy FAT ass.

    maybe, but there’s a reason he wasn’t doing well in montreal and is lighting it up with the Wild.

    laziness, complacency, i don’t know what… but clearly, it wasn’t working with Montreal, and we need to get over it.

    Gionta for C! Though…I’m still pretty starry eyed hooked on seeing Cammy with the C… Maybe they can share captaincy like Chelibot and Carbo did.

    Hell I’d settle for a rotating C for now until they decide to pick one (like Minny did).

    Or maybe they’re holding the C for Subban to inject that “young captain” thing a lot of teams are doing these day ;D He’d love that.
