The Maple Leafs Song: A Video Tribute

Last week, I shared with you The Maple Leafs Song, my homage to Adam Sandler and truculence. In honour of the commencement of the 2010-2011 NHL Regular Season tonight, I give you once again, The Maple Leafs Song – now with BRAND NEW VIDEO GOODNESS! (I learned that last bit from a marketing guy). Spouse […]

Artist’s Conception

As you may know, an inventory of the benefits accruing to the Canadiens as a result of their recent makeover is being compiled on an ongoing basis.  Contributions to the collection continue to be accepted (leave ’em in the comments below, if’n you feel moved to pitch in). HiR:tb has obtained exclusive photographic evidence of […]

Breaking News: Habs Announce New Logo

HiR:tb’s sources have provided a first look at the Montreal Canadiens’ expected new logo, effective immediately:

Message in a Bottle: Project C’est Something Nice Continues…

Ladies and gentlemen, Mirinov’s nose has been at it again.  I have not yet updated the Project C’est Something NIce main page, but do yourself a favour and click through to learn the secret truth underlying the Canadiens’ offensive strategy. Thanks everybody for all your submissions – I think we’ve got to be getting close to 40 […]

I Feel Like Sally Struthers…

…only instead of dollars, I’m begging for jokes. Oh, and I’m not trying to feed starving African children, I’m trying to ensure that we take the piss out of Habs fans.  This shouldn’t be hard;  it’s not like Gainey hasn’t given us material to work with. Here’s where we’re at: 1/3 of the way there. […]

Project “C’est Something Nice”: Talking to Habs Fans

There has been much joy and mirth not only in these virtual parts but also elsewhere in the Barilkosphere of late.  Brian Burke’s succesful efforts to assemble a Brobdingnagian blueline and to complement it with a Colossus in the crease have been largely responsible for the festive atmosphere in Leafdom. But it has to be […]

Setting the Market: Brian Burke and the NHL Trade Deadline 2009

Nb:  I am cross-posting this article to both my own site and Pension Plan Puppets;  I spent a lot of time working on this, and it occurred to me that if Jammies or Sexypants accidentally pushed the wrong “deletify” button over there at PPP, I might lose the whole thing.  So here ’tis: Here’s the […]

The Day I Bought the Leafs.

I bought the Toronto Maple Leafs today. No, really, and although the Maple Leafs I own will never win the Stanley Cup, I’m just as happy as can be. Just to fit in with the previous owners, I told the first guy I met on the street today, “you’re fired.” I also raised the price […]

When Good Coaches do Bad Things.

Quickly:  I can’t believe Montreal coach Guy Carbonneau started Jaroslav Halak in place of Carey Price at goaltender in last night’s Game 4 matchup with Philly.  Bonehead move.  I do not understand the thinking behind that;  Price had not played poorly in game 3, despite what the sportscasters are blathering about in their 30-second soundbites, […]

Gr8 Game Seven Coming

Watching Game 6 of the Caps/Flyers series tonight, I was struck by how great a game Mike Green was having. From the hit he laid on Sami Kapanen (the one where they had to get the Philly Fire Department to pick l’il Sami out of the rigging up in the rafters) to his rapid and […]
