Goodbye Mick (Foley)
By Guido | |
So, maybe Mick Foley will read this and maybe he won't, but it's what came out out of my pen all those years ago. Enjoy, if you can...I thought it was all pretend – you couldn’t have done all those things. And if you had, what kind of hell, I thought, was in this man for what he did?
Wings & Senators In A Wild Card Battle Worth Seeing Live
By Guido | |
It will be interesting to see which of these two teams comes out ahead and if their head-to-head battle proves to be a playoff bound turning point!
Ice Birds Chirping In Home Opener
By Guido | |
The HABS late third period 4-3 surprise win left fans on both teams shaking their heads for different reasons and in different directions
Guy Lafleur’s Last Game, La Première Étoile
By Guido | |
"My story, at least this one about Guy Lafleur, remains on the spine of a TDK VHS tape, in the hands of a fellow fan who I connected with fifteen years apart..."
HABS Look for Help from A Saint
By Guido | |
"There is no doubt that St. Louis had a great career. There is also no doubt that he is coming in with ideas on paper that haven’t been tested as a coach behind the bench in the NHL."
Is it Time to Trade Brendan Gallagher?
By Guido | |
"He’s the type of player you hate to play against but love to have on your team because you’ll find him in the corners, in front of the net, creating space for other players on the team, drawing the opponents into penalties, and taking it on the chin every single night."
NHL and Bettman – Antiquated Response Signals Time For Overdue Change
By Guido | |
"The game has a lot of inconsistencies, but this isn’t one that should wait until a General Manager’s meeting by the ocean sands, or a trial mid-season rule change; If there was ever an event in the NHL where fans and owners should demand change, this is it."
Panic or Patience: HABS at Crossroads
By Guido | |
"Canadiens’ fans demand performance and results with often little patience while their finger is always gently pressed against the panic button..Leadership is often recognized through titles and hierarchy, but the reality is that leadership isn’t who you say you are, but rather what you show you are..."
Kotkaniemi, The Hurricane, and The Torch
By Guido | |
The 18-year-old smiling kid who was once a beacon of hope for the Canadiens centre woes is smiling bigger than ever now, but not because he’s trying to carry a historic torch that we know was too heavy for him, but because he’s got a pocket full of (short-term) cash and a feeling that he got the upper hand on his former employer, albeit by participating in childish behaviour with an owner in Dundon who could just be using him for his own entertainment.
Be In The Moment: Are We Still The North?
By Guido | |
Be in your moments. Be in each other’s moments. Enjoy them, today because well, we just don’t know what opportunity there will be to enjoy them tomorrow.
HABS Roll The Dice on Expansion
By Guido | |
"If the HABS do lose Price ($10.5) to the draft and Weber to Long Term Injury Reserve ($7.8) and they add that to their current $14 million, that gives them $32.3 million. Surely, with or without that additional space the Canadiens are poised to make some moves.."
Warriors, Generals, Soldiers, and Heroes
By Guido | |
"A few days after the loss I was on a phone call with former Montreal Canadien’s Stanley Cup champion Ryan Walter as we were discussing a future leadership session and he asked me what I thought about the finals...I just really enjoyed how they made me believe they were always in it.” I paused. “Or maybe that’s just what you say after your team loses”
Italy Dominates Euro Cup, Cornicello Helps in Penalty Kicks!
By Guido | |
Their efforts led them to a second consecutive game in penalty kicks as Italians everywhere must have been rubbing their cornicello(s)! A cornicello is an Italian horn (a talisman of sorts) that is believed to bring good luck to its wearer and sometimes when pointed at the opposition, bad luck to them.
The Thunder Behind The Lightning’s Stanley Cup Championship
By Guido | |
The Thunder behind the Lightning’s win can arguably be identified as advantages through a salary cap loophole, timely officiating that impacted the flow of the games, and being able to assemble a very talented team
Knights Rise, HABS Fall
By Guido | |
So, are all the analysts jumping back on the Canadiens are done bandwagon? Probably a few of them because they all want to be right, they want to be first, and they’re going with the odds, on paper.
Get It Right NHL & NHLPA: Scheifele-Evans Hit
By Guido | |
If the NHL doesn’t suspend Scheifele for at least the duration of this series, if not longer, then the league isn’t just broken, it’s irreparable when it comes to its ability to translate these types of on-ice indiscretions into fair and actionable consequences.
Time To Burn It Down
By Guido | |
For the Canadiens, The Torch may have been passed from failing hands, but for now, unfortunately, to failing hands.
Carey Price Can’t Score
By Guido | |
The only thing the HABS had going for them was Carey Price and the transition pass up ice that died on the boards or was broken up by the Leafs.
In The Penalty Box
By Guido | |
On the perimeter a score like 5-1 suggests a dominant win, or that’s what the pendulum-fans will have you believe on social media. When you pick this game apart though, the score wasn’t reflective of all the micro moments that contributed to it.
