Mikhail Grabovsky is a loser and deserves to get his ass kicked. The stunts he keeps pulling against his former team are ridiculous. If it was not for the linesmen, Kostistyn would have kicked his ass, sooner or later big mouth is getting his.

On another another, it is pretty easy for Deveaux to act like the big man when there is no George Laraque in Montreal’s lineup. The Leafs were pathetic tonight, they could not even “out-tough” a team full of more talented players than meatheads. Montreal answered every challenge and the Leafs ran from more too.

Hurry up Kaberle, tell Burkey you want a trade and hopefully we will see you soon in a Habs uniform.

Ultimately, a great 6-2 win. Can’t wait until we wrap the season series up and help the Maple Leafs move higher in the Tavares sweepstakes.

For the love of God, could all you hockey fans throwing hissy fits about the potential of six Habs starting at the all star find something to really worry and crow about.

It has been at least a decade or even longer since the NHL all-star game actually meant something or was interesting to watch. In my humble opinion, it stopped being interesting after they stopped calling the teams by the Wales and Campbell conference monikers.

Who cares if six Habs start, did anyone really expect the fans in hockey-mad Montreal NOT to stuff the ballot box on the year of the team’s 100th anniversary? The game is being held in Montreal, if this game were being held in Toronto and Toronto ever had six players possible of starting the game, the Make Me Laugh fans would surely vote all them in. Hell, they would vote in Tie Domi, Wade Belak and Andrew Raycroft.

The game means nothing and by far, the most interesting element is the skills competition. Relax, no one is saying the starting six, if they are Habs, are the six best in the league. Also, spare us the comparison to the great Oiler teams and how many of them all started in an all-star game. If the technology existed back then and the game was in Edmonton, the ballot box would have been stuffed too.

I know, i know, the bloody Leafs doubled the Habs. We looked flat and deserved the loss. Carbo will get our boys going again for sure, the season is early.

In the meantime, here are some great jokes….yes…at the Leafs expense:

The O.P.P. are cracking down on speeders heading into Toronto.
For the first offense, they give you two Toronto Maple Leaf tickets.
If you get stopped a second time, they make you use them.


Q. What do you call 30 millionaires around a TV watching the Stanley Cup Playoffs?

Q. What do the Toronto Maple Leafs and Billy Graham have in common?

Q. How do you keep the Toronto Maple Leafs out of your yard?

A. Put up a goal net.

  

Q. What do you call a Toronto Maple Leaf with a Stanley Cup ring?

A. A thief.

A. Nobody knows and we may never find out.

  

Q. What do the Toronto Maple Leafs and possums have in common?

A. Both play dead at home and get killed on the road.

More Leaf fans will be resigned to this fans fate as the Leafs prepare for more losing.

More Leaf fans will be resigned to this fan's fate-more losing.

To no one’s surprise media in Leaf Nation have jumped all over Ron Wilson’s comments that wins and losses and won’t matter to him this season. This only adds to Cliff Fletcher’s earlier assertions that low expectations are the best expectations.

Ahh do you all remember Grabovski pitter pattering down the halls of the Bell Centre...no??..ya, i figured, nor do I.

As just a hockey fan in Maple Laugh-land, management’s approach makes sense. You look at the Leaf roster and for the first time decades, they are actually trying to rebuild for the future. They have kids, they may not all be top notch prospects, but there is a sense of rebuilding. Heck, they have our throw-away Grabovski.  This process won’t deliver a cup anytime soon, but at least they are trying and Wilson is a good coach to have at the helm.

The moment the Hab world stood still and King Roy left the throne for good. Thanks Mario and Reggie- two of the biggest management mistakes in Habs history, enough to overshadow their on-ice contributions.

This rebuilding of the Leafs reminds me of the recent Hab dark days when were saddled with Rejean Houle at GM and Tremblay behind the bench. Things just went from bad to worse. We lost Patrick, had dead wood veterans and not enough kids playing. With some patience, shrewd scouting and Gainey at the helm, we have steered things around.

Leafs have now gone on a youth movement to help counter the increase Depends costs from the past years.

The Habs have never dabbled in the big free agent market as the Leafs for “quick fix” additions, so some serious foundation was set for our current turnaround and success. Leaf fans, prepare yourselves to see losses mount but at least the light at the tunnel is not a train anymore…from what we can tell!

Habs Rock, Leafs Suck, say Cherry & Milbury.

 

Just say it out loud, nice and slow or shout it out, shout it out loud;

 

“HABS ROCK- LEAFS SUCK!”

Need we say more?

Need we say more?

After a pretty high-tempo exhibition game against the Red Wings, which the Canadiens prevailed in via shootout, Don Cherry has given his stamp of approval to the Canadiens for this year.

Dapper Don gives his thumb to the Habs. Blue is blue because the Leafs..well..the Leafs are not going anywhere..again.

For Cherry to do that and he is a die-hard Leaf boy despite his obvious love of the Bruins, that is a big deal here in the Big Smoke. The fact Mike Milbury essentially said the Leafs will suck this year, only made a good day better! Let’s remember, even Macleans has weighed into why the Leafs stink.
