Habs Lose again 3-1 to Rangers – Stick a fork in her Scotty

Golf anyone?  It looks like the Habs may have enough to squeak into the play offs, but there is just about zero hope of going anywhere. The AK 27 line was silent and the defense was ugly.    The Habs were back to being outshot again too. In other news SERGE SAVARD is part of a […]

Claude McIntosh and I agree on something!

L I N K I knew it could happen.  Claude and I agree on Guy Lauzon burning taxpayer money on his shameless plugs and mailinigs. And while we’re on the subject, would Guy Lauzon and other MPs stop wasting good tax dollars on those all too frequent mailouts to constituents. They are useless pieces of […]
