I’d Rather Winnipeg

A lot of talk in the past couple days about Quebec City, their attempts at getting funds for a new arena, and the desire for an NHL team to follow. If you build it, they will come…but in this case, I kinda hope they don’t.

Before I get on Pauline Marois’s shit-list, let me explain why, if a seventh team comes to Canada, I’d rather it be Winnipeg over Quebec city.

Jeff-wha? Halpa-who?

It’s true – yesterday the Habs signed yet another forward where I had to get on Google to find out who he is. It’s not that I don’t follow players outside of the Habs, it’s just that there are anywhere between 600 and 700 active players, and Jeff Halpern just happens to be one of them.

So I did my research, watched the YouTube videos, read other bloggers comments, and this is my conclusion: Why not Metro? Was Metropolit looking for more than Halpern’s $600,000? Maybe. Swiss league salaries aren’t disclosed so I can’t compare the Halpern contract to Metropolit’s Swiss League contract.

First Post Catch-Up

It really was only a matter of time before I started this blog. And really, the only thing stopping me was the fact that the world really truly didn’t need yet ANOTHER hockey blog, yet alone a Habs blog.
The decision came down to two things:

1- When the CBC calls me, I want to something to promote. I never get to promote anything, all the other regular “fan experts” are all over self-promotion, it’s time I get on the bandwagon!
2- I have a lot to say on the matter and my wife is tired of hearing it.

A lot has happened over the summer, and with Training Camp around the corner, this is the perfect time to start blogging. Let me just start by re-capping my thoughts on a few important topics.
