Enough is Enough – PROUD CANADIAN!

We live in a society of easily offended. It’s a population of ungratefulness with no regards for anything or anyone else but themselves. Who cares what others think or how they feel? A society of “go big or go home”, where it’s all or nothing. Too little is done rationally, as political correctness prevails against common sense. People are so used to having everything they want at the tip of their fingers that they live with a sense of entitlement. Participation trophies not to hurt feelings. Blaming police when criminals are being roughed up a bit. In fact, this text will surely offend many. No wait… that’s not fair. To borrow a phrase from Country Star Luke Bryan, “I believe most people are good.” It’s just that the Snowflakes are loud and… get away with their non-sense.

When The Canadiens’ Playoffs’ Turn Political

They’re baaaaaacck! The Montreal Canadiens have reached the NHL playoffs’ semi-finals for the first time since 2014. Considering that they were the last team to qualify for this year’s playoffs, it’s a huge accomplishment. They not only eliminated arch rivals Toronto Maple Leafs, but they erased a 3-1 deficit in that series, and swept the Winnipeg Jets in four consecutive games! Yet, the focus for some members of the media and politically driven individuals is not on hockey. Yes, the language police decided to make a comeback during the Stanley Cup playoffs… as sad and pathetic it might be.

Stop, You Have Found Your Anthem Singer!

Ever since Roger Doucet has passed, the Montreal Canadiens have been searching for their next National Anthem singer. Some sang too fast, some too slow. I’ve seen some putting the crowd to sleep instead of pumping the crowd. Others reminded me of nails scratching on a blackboard. Some were okay, some were pretty bad. Fans took on to Ginette Reno… personally, she left me somewhat indifferent. In these playoffs however, I think that one singer rose to the occasion to take the job on regularly.

Habs Never Allowed The Jets To Take Off

You know when they say that hockey is played on the ice? If we went by the standings and the regular season, why play the game, right? Few took the Montreal Canadiens to eliminate the Toronto Maple Leafs. All of them were pretty proud of their prediction when Toronto took a 3-1 series lead. Moving onto a series against a well rested Winnipeg Jets team, the Habs didn’t stand a chance once again, according to hockey “expert”. To borrow a line from late Rodney Dangerfield, “They get no respect”. But since game 5 of the Toronto series, the Canadiens have been dominant. In fact, they have yet to trail at any point in a game since game 4 or that series.

Habs’ Fourth Line: Built For The Grind

More Than Experience, It’s The Type of Experience

What a comeback! Or what a horrible choking job! If you listen to the announcers and panelists on Sportsnet and CBC, the Leafs’ lost that series. While they aren’t completely off, they fail miserably as pointing the finger to the true reason: the Montreal Canadiens. Ted Nolan once said that sometimes, we tend to look too deep into what we did wrong instead of looking at what the opponent did right. The Habs had a strategy and they executed it. They made adjustments for game five, six and seven and it paid off. The experience paid off.
