    Great story I saw on Facebook:

    The Good Friday Massacre, Van Halen and six beers in 15 minutes:

    ”Everybody in Quebec was watching the game. Van Halen was in Quebec City, playing a concert in our arena the following day. So these guys were at the bars, and the game was on every TV, so they’re watching it going, “Holy Christ, what’s going on here?” They weren’t really into hockey and just couldn’t believe it.
    So as we’re clearing out our lockers, having an end-of-the-year beer and pizza, hanging around, they’re setting up for a soundcheck. It was the 1984 “Jump” tour. So we’re down in the same area as them, they’re using three or four locker rooms for the band and the crew. Except for David Lee Roth. He had his own room away from everybody.”

    ”Alex [Van Halen is] in the locker room with us, and he drinks six beers in 15 minutes. Eddie comes in and says, “Look guys, would you mind? Get my brother out of here. We have a soundcheck to do and a concert to play tonight.” But Alex drank six beers on the spot; I’ve never seen anything like that. Remember the old-style stubbies? Well, he was tipping them back with no hands. He drains three of those—glug, glug, glug, glug, glug—with no hands!

    In Michael Anthony’s rider he specified that he was to be provided a case of Jack Daniels at each gig—he actually had a guitar in the shape of a Jack Daniels bottle. So he’s in the room with us, too, and he takes a couple of shots and says, “Eh, I’m tired of this,” and he gave us all the Jack Daniels. So 25 of us went through that in no time at all. Nice guys. They were just mesmerized from what they saw the night before with the brawl. They’d never seen anything like it. They’re sitting around with the road crew as this game heightened and it drew everybody to it. I remember them asking us, “How do you guys do this? Is this what you do every game?” We’re sitting there with black eyes. They thought we were crazy.

    Yeah but he’s still paid to stop the puck, eh?

    MAF has benefited his entire career from having solid - All Star defense cores in front of him.


    Most overrated ‘good’ goalie in the last 25 years.

    But based on what went down last year....which was blatant and deliberate circumvention of the cap and the fact that the same player now has another injury on a play that seemed harmless and the fact that the team is already leaking, through insiders, that he might need surgery....it’s pretty funny.

    Is Brisbois brazen enough to try this again? I think he’d have to be stupid to.


    But time will tell. All eyes will be on him and the Bolts. Let’s see how long this guy’s going to miss this time around.....
    Several rumors going around that KUCH will be back earlier. Especially considering the Olympics coming up in FEB 2022. Most think KUCH is going to do everything possible to be back before then.

    Looks to be a Groin injury. If rehab he could be back in month or so. Surgery would be a longer for sure (3 months?). That will be the big factor.

    They certainly wasted no time in putting him on the LTIR.

    I’d bet they announce he’s gonna need surgery and he won’t be back until mid April - May.

    Hell, last year the recovery time for his surgery was 4 months but they wanted to make sure he had that extra month and change to be ready for the playoffs....

    It's a shame the Canadiens lost KK.

    The Hurricanes are trying to create a rivalry that doesn't exist though. Hab fans hate the Leafs and Bruins, not Carolina.

    Flames had a big win today, and another big test on Monday night against NYR. Not sold on Sutter or his player deployment, but so far the results are acceptable.
