By the time this week-long break in the Habs’ schedule finishes, Scott Gomez will look like Pancho Villa, Max Pacioretty like Marcello Mastroianni, P.K. Subban like Sidney Poitier, and Carey Price like Burt Reynolds.
By the time it finishes, I might not remember who’s on the team.
In the meantime:
A fine piece from The Hockey Writers about Nail Yakupov, very possibly the first pick in the 2012 Entry Draft, and who is being compared to Pavel Bure, only with more edge to his game. (which is a nice combination to be sure).
Alex Ovechkin calling Bruce Boudreau a fat fuck after the coach didn’t put him on the ice in the last minute of the game. (You have to read his lips but you can make it out clearly). And while we’re speaking of Ovechkin, I just have to say that I hate his TV commericals. All of them.
Canadiens sign Jarred Tinordi, now playing for the London Knights of the OHL, to a three-year contract. The great thing about Tinordi is his nice size. This blueliner stands 6’6 and weighs 215. It’s here at Canadien.com Jarred Tinordi
Interesting story from the Trail Daily Times, with Jean Beliveau reminiscing about the night he and the Habs played an exhibition game in Trail, BC, fifty years ago. Legend Recalls Time In Trail
