Florida Fun

36 Comments
  1. The Lighting play out of St.Petersburg. Why is the team called Tampbay Lighting?

    Where does The Panthers play out of?

  2. Sunrise, Florida. I think.

  3. Well well,I see the Habs are in Florida”suntanning,swimming,beachbumming,cheaking out the curves”relaxing like they do while playing HOCKEY!!!!And what’s with Carbo sitting Chipcura and playing Ryder”coach has taken way too many pucks in the head” ,what kind of system is it that when you SUCK you get to play and when your a first year,+1 forward who is playing well then you get the press box???That is so GOOFEY CARBO!!!!YOU NEED ONE OF THOSE COACHING FOR IDIOTS BOOKS BUDs!!!lol

  4. Your silly if you think Ryder is in any new plans…he’s got to be shipped and that means displaying whatever gifts he has…right now that’s not too good.

    Besides, the team has to clobber Tampa Bay as they have either Vinny or Richards or St. Louis and the Canadiens could/should be exploring any potential trades with them. Could see Ryder Huet combo for a Lecavalier or St. Louis and a throw-in (maybe backup goalie)…in the near future. Hope so anyways. Go Habs Go!

  5. How about displaying Ryder at the edge of the Grand Canyon and then give him a push,lol

    I like that one, xtrahabsfan. Ha ha ha! good one. yes, Ryder only playing to be displayed for a trade to any team for a bag of pucks, because that’s all he’s worth.

  7. They were on fire tonight and Ryder still managed to end up a -2. Ryder, Huet and that sloppy O’Byrne to Tampa for Lecavier!

    You guys are smoking some bad dope if you think Tampa Bay is ever going
    to trade Vinny for a couple minor leaguers, even if Huet is included that
    is not going to make the trade happen. You can dream, but it is quite unrealistic.

    O’Byrne has got to use his size and weight out there!!!!! He looks lost a lot out there. Ryder still can’t do anything..other then them I think they played pretty well. Not a perfect game (last few min.) but over all they played a pretty good road game..Look out for a collapse in the Florida game tomorrow(HOPE NOT)…GO HABS GO

  10. Your a SICK ASS to even joke about pushing someone over a cliff.

    The Habs will have to give up a lot for that to happen. Habs do not have what TB would be looking to get for Vinny. The only one I could see the Habs get would be Richards. But still is not what the fans want. There probably will be a trade soon but not what we all want and if it is for any of the players that Habs fans are after don’t get mad at what BG. has to give up for him…
    (WE PRETTY MUCH ALL HAVE BEEN CALLING FOR A TOP CENTER AND WE WILL HAVE TO GIVE UP A BLUE CHIP OR TWO TO GET IT).

    once and for all: ANYONE WHO THINKS WE WOULD EVER GET LECAVALIER IS A TOTAL IDIOT! IT’S NEVER EVER EVER GOING TO HAPPEN! GIVE IT UP!

    Like I said we do not have what they want…. The only way to get Vinny is when his contract is up and even then it wont happen…..

  14. DTD ,how do you know he didn’t have a lanyard on”bundge”,lol.Anywho you have made your despleasure known,NOW GO GET LAYED and SMOKE A FATTY !!!LOL

  15. I’d be willing to throw Koivu and Huet to Tampa along with Ryder for Lecavier – that sounds like a realistic offer to me. Tampa needs a number one man in nets and Koivu fills the hole that Vinny would leave better then most. Saku is having a tough time really getting going this year and, while Price still needs some work, he would more then do as our number one.

    why can’t they put ryder on the powerplay since we know he can’t play defence, or play and up and down system where he has a player play defense for him, maybe then he’ll get going

    Ryder is playing well tonight.. Maybe a boost of confidence will do him good..

    Reminds me of the clamor to trade the “Slow” Portuguese guys.. Maybe the decision makers are the slow ones.. Yes Ryder has his defensive struggles.. Maybe some real coaching would help.. And a little confidence..

    Sorry I like the guy..

  18. huet is #1.The guys play with more confidence with huet in nets.

    Yeah I agree, but with only a one year contract maybe the writings been on the wall from the beginning of the season. He’s been a streaky player, but the fair trade value on him (considering the contract situation) is a low first round pick. To achieve that we have to play him, get him some stats, he needs pp time.

  20. Kovalev sucks on the PP lately. He gave up the puck 3 times on the 4 min PP tonight..

  21. It has been fun in florida.go habs go.

  22. Two wins in Florida and 7 out of a possible 10 points on the christmas road trip……………………….and Ryder scored a goal! Ladies and Gentlemen hell has indeed frozen over. Although I loved that “I’m so smart” self-satisfied look on Carbo’s face after Koustopolous scored the fourth goal. Kinda funny

  23. A great holiday present for all Habs fans,hell even Ryder scored”that won’t happen for another 15 games”Gooooo Habs!

    They were out shot AGAIN but all in all a good road trip thus far. O’Byrne starting to use he size a bit more tonight GOOD TO SEE .Maybe the turning point of the season and for Ryder…. lets hope so. GO HABS GO

  25. Ryder looked very good today, hopefully that sticks. 3-1-1 now on this road trip with a planned tromping in New York on Sunday :)

    Trade Price, Ryder and someone else.(fill in blank)O for Lecavalier or Ovechkin..that’s right I said it>? Why ? Cause Huet is a freakin superstar and would be twice as good if he played ALL the games..his save percentage is nearly tops in the leage..that is the only true stat which tells you how good your goalie is…he is outshot everygame and he rarely if ever lets in more than 2 goals and his % is always 930 or over…he;s another allstar, who is 31..not 40 which means he is in his prime and could be a star for another 5-6 years!..we don;t need Price…we have a reliable back up in halak….Be realistic….in order yo get that superstar power forward we all know we need..we have to be prepared to give up someone huge!…I love price but hes young and unproven in the nhl….but Huet is a superstar//so play his ass all the time,, bring up halak and offer price to get the superstar we always dreamed…of…many of you will call me crazy but it’s time we played for the “now” (next 3 years) instead of the future..i don’;t care how good price will be….we arne’;t gonna win a cup building around him with the clowns we have up front

    Price wouldn’t be enough for either of those 2.

    oh, and where are all the haters?

  29. Iceburg14, in order to get Lecavalier or OVECHKIN ,we would have to give up :P rice,Higgins,Saku and Komasarik and throw Ryder in just to sweetin the pot.

    O’Byrne out with a broken thumb. He was sent back to Montreal today.

    Toronto is being blown away by NYR tonight. yahoo!

  32. And Ottawa took a crazy loss to Washington – good for us, we just need to stomp the Rangers tomorrow!

  33. Tampa isn’t going anywhere without goaltending…they have to be interested. I don’t think it would cost that much. Mind you Patrick Marleau in San Jose is a sleeper…Ryder might be the right bait.

    Also, Washington would be looking for some draft picks and goaltending help. The Rangers are coming around…wonder which Habs team will show up.

    I also think that Koivu would be better off some where else and shipping him and Ryder might be the right mix to bring in a top forward and draft picks.

    Besides got to give the young guns the time and space to play and shine. That’s why we got them. So give them the opportunity. Let’s go….keep it up and press forget the lay back and let them keep coming. Teams like Ottawa, Carolina, Anaheim, NJersey and Detroit will eat them alive. Go Habs Go!

    don’t trade koivu hes been a solid player on this team for the past 12 years.
    and great game last night scoring from every line !

  35. Ithink it’s time to trade Kovalev while he’s having a very good season along with Ryder and Huet.There’s good trade bait there FOR A GREAT BIG POWER FOWARD.

  36. Lets win against Newyork and go farther away from toronto and Boston in the standings. Last year we sucked in the middle of the season and this year we have two good wins after christmas and lets keep it going!
