07:32 AM ET 12.06 | Having grown up in Ottawa, Claude Julien couldn't deny that he worshiped the great Montreal Canadiens teams of yesteryear. Since there was no Senators team in Ottawa, the Bleu, Blanc and Rouge were the team of choice for everyone in Quebec, and the eastern section of Ontario. Those teams were so good and so beautifully graceful to watch on the ice, that it would have been impossible not to love them as a hockey-loving youngster growing up North of the Border. "I grew up in Ottawa, and they didn't have an [NHL] team back then," said Julien. "So I was too close to that team we're playing on Thursday. I don't like them anymore. ... Now I'm with the Boston Bruins, and rivalry-wise you don't like them. It really is deep down where you are, and how you feel. Right now I don't like [the Canadiens].

Nice picture. Looks like he's getting a prostrate exam with the wrong end of a hockey stick.

He was a last minute stand in for Rene Rancourt.

I would imagine after the hit yesterday, the lovin' keeps growin.

Any word on Boychuk?

Picture tells us just how much you like where you are.
In all seriousness though this is hardly a T&R. Technically I suppose but the title is misleading because he clearly implies if he was somewhere else he'd probably not hate them.

Even when they showed it again, and again, and....it didn't look that bad, but I have had a rib bruised before and it's hard to catch your breath sometimes, that's what it looked like to me. I'm not a doctor but I did stay at a Motel 6 once.

With the sweating, coloration and fast labored breathing, I thought it was going to be even worse than that, but the team has said he's been released and will fly back with the team to Boston.

They're waiting on if the Montreal prosecuting attorney to decide if he's going to press charges. :-)

No way he presses charges and risk another Rocket Richard-Clarence Campbell fiasco !

OK. I guess that and the fact that he was moving around and at first looked like he was going to get up and skate off on his own power.

If I was the Habs doormat for so many decades, I wouldn't like them either!
