    I would love to see Grabs vs BGL. How fun would that be. The only automatic victory for the Habs. Seriously, can’t wait for this duel. It’s gonna be a cat fight. BTW we really need to pull out a win here.

    It took Carbonneau this long to figure out that it might be a good idea to put Laraque in front of the net on the powerplay?

    I feel 12 years younger after this game because it feel like i am back in the late 90’s.

    Howard Berger is reporting that after the game Brad May called out Carbo saying “Carbonneau put Georges out there… sent Georges out there, and he actually thought we were going to back down,” May contended. “I know all about that guy, and I’m talking about their coach. You know what? It’s not going to happen. It’s been 19 years [in the NHL] Guy… keep sending them out.”

    Asked why he felt so certain that Carbonneau had instructed Laraque to fight, May replied: “Guy just doesn’t have any idea what’s it’s like to be a tough guy. The toughest guy in his family is Brendan Morrow, his son-in-law, who’s an unbelievable player and very tough. Guy Carbonneau [used to be] incredibly tough blocking shots in the NHL, but never in a fighting role. He knows nothing about it. There’s respect to be shown in a situation like that, but he wanted to set the tone and I was happy to be a part of it.”

    What a joke Brad May is. Wow. Secondly, who is more respectful of his role than Laraque? He was on the ice because Carbo didn’t want one of his small lines out there getting abused like last game where May- apparently now a beacon of virtue- picked a fight with Boullion! Man up May, you got tossed around like you always do when you face Georges Laraque! Don’t blame Carbo! Why were YOU on the ice!?????????

    I’m still fuming over this one.. Laraque played 10 mins last night even though he spent 9 in the penalty box. May played 4:40. May wasn’t going to be able to avoid Laraque all night. Carbo uses his 4th line in all kinds of situations (often to our dismay). They take a regular shift in the rotation. I can’t believe that May thinks that he answered the call. The guy played less than five minutes of a 60 minute game. What a loser.
