Now, just a word about tonight. It’s the Maple Leafs. They got shutout by Miller and the Sabres yesterday, so we can assume they’ll be motivated tonight (as they always are against Montreal anyway). But maybe they’ll be a little tired in the third period too.

On the Habs side, there is hope that some players will be returning into the lineup. Gomez and D’Agostini could start the game. That’s very good news. The habs have been doing ok recently in spite of missing key players, but I’m not sure how long this would have lasted. Hopefully, Gomez starts getting some points now.

Just a thought about him, by the way: I think it’s stupid to hope that he’ll suddenly produce enough points to justify his salary. Of course he’s overpaid. That’s the reason why we could get him: Sather wanted to get rid of his salary. Now the  habs are not expecting him to produce Crosby-like numbers just because he’s getting the same kind of money. But they’re expecting him to be a good first line center. It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be worried because of his play. But we should just accept the fact that he’s overpaid. That’s the way it is, and the habs knew that right from the start. We all knew what we were getting. I hope he does better than in NYC, but he’s not going to magically turn into Joe Thornton.

And a last word, about Chipchura. It’s no secret I like him, and I’m hoping for him to have more success. He played a little bit on the PP during the last game, but his 4th line duties were very minimal, and he was on the ice for just 5’09 during the game. Tonight, he could play along Metro and D’Agostini on the fourth line. I was hoping for him to get some time with Metropolit, and I think it could really help him. Now I hope he does good tonight. Because once Gionta, Kostitsyn, Pouliot and Laraque return, it’s going to be very hard for him to keep a spot. I know the likeliest scenario is that he’ll get waived because he only has a one-way contract, and Martin seems to like White and Pyatt better (one of them will probably be sent back to Hamilton too). But I’m still hoping he can somehow turn things around. If he does get waived, I will be torn. It would be good for Hamilton to get him back, and I wouldn’t like to see the habs losing him for good. But at the same time, I still hope he can be a NHLer, even if it’s not in Montreal… Come on Chips, hang in there!

Exclusive fake pics of the Habs retreat!

Ok, now let’s get back to business. The habs season is about to begin, and rather than boring you with stupid predictions which will just be really embarrassing in a few months, I’ve decided to do a little investigation on the Teen Ranch where the habs are currently locked to do some team building before the start of the season.

There have been rumors that the habs are sleeping in dorm rooms furnished with bunk beds. Well, guess what? I’m about to release some exclusive pictures of those dorm rooms. And as you’ll see, it’s very cosy.

To begin, here’s a picture of Paul Mara, confortably laying in bed.

As you can see, Paul can kill people with his stare. Even when he’s in a ridiculous position.

Now let’s turn to another room. Oh look, this is Ryan O’Byrne!

Hmm, ok Ryan, I’m not gonna ask you anything about this little kid, I’m sure there’s a perfectly valid reason why he’s here. That’s a little creepy though. But I’m glad you brought your habs vintage pyjamas!

Ok, let’s move on to the next room.

Eh look, Gio is being all friendly with Carey! Nice!

Price Gio– Hey Carey! What are you reading? Goaltending for dummies? Ahahahahahaa!

– Jerk!

Ok, well, let’s just leave those two… uh… bond together.

I think there’s a last room. Yeah, it’s for the “special” habs. Hmm, nice, they have really cool beds!

Hey Scott, I heard you like fishing, so how do you like this fish-themed bed?

Uh… yeah. Ok, well thanks Scott.

Well, this ends our little tour of the habs Teen Ranch. I’m relieved to see that Gainey and Martin are doing everything they can to ensure that the players find some chemistry on and off the ice. I think this bodes really well for the upcoming season!
